After the VT game I questioned and even mentioned here, what if we had put Cardal Jones in after the first half? Jones is bigger and harder to take down. He also seems to have no fear of a pass rush.

You speculate that JT would have made the victories more lopsided, it could just have easily gone the other way. Take the Sugar Bowl, several times we were in our own end zone, we almost took a Safety, but Cardale was strong enough to get out. JT couldn't have muscled out of those, perhaps he would have scrambled and picked up a few more yards, perhaps we take the Safety. There is no way to tell.

In the summer 2014, Urban said the offense just ran more smoothly with JT, didn't really go into any other detail. JT won't be full strength in Spring camp, Cardale is going to be taking the first team reps. This will give him time to learn and practice the other plays, specifically the options. If he improves his option reads, then I think he has the inside track to start.

I think too many people here are overly optimistic when talking about scUM. Hoke has recruited well, look what he did with RR players the first year he was there, that was his best year. There has also been a tradition we can hopefully break this year, but a first year coach at either team has typically won the game.

With the recruits they have, if they can figure out a decent QB, they will likely win 9 or 10 games. Not that I want to see that! Also, remember it's been awhile since we have just walked all over them. Before you say anything, remember TP helped us lose to Purdue a few years ago, thanks to 2 INTs and 2 Fumbles.

It's actually kind of boring knowing you are always going to beat a team, losing once every 10 years or so keeps it interesting, let's hope we can get at least another 3 wins before that comes around though. When the time comes, I'd rather lose in AA than the Shoe.

I saw a stat that 66% of the OSU Players are from Ohio. Alabama has 33% from Bama, Oregon has 10% from Oregon.

I prefer to have 75% from the state, I'd like to see some rule that you need to keep a certain percentage from IN state, but that will never happen.

To me it's not such a big deal to win a championship and tout (example) Alabama is the best, when 2/3rds of your players are from Out of state. That's just me!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The weather goes Both ways! I think the coaches need to give the Northern guys a heads up about how Humid and miserable it is in the south. Being used to Ohio weather, then coming to the south and having summer practice out in this stuff. I don't think most recruits ever think about that. Even the first games of the year can still be pretty hot down here, but by late September it's nice in the North. 

If we get into anymore home and away games with southern teams, I would like to see us make them come here in November if we have to go there in August/September. Why should they have the climate advantage in August/September, then come to our place for nice weather.

Actually, if we weren't up by 18, then I don't feel so bad! :-)

I wasn't watching, I was checking the scores on the CBS app, so maybe they reversed the scores for awhile in the 2nd half?

We left at LEAST 14 Easy points laying around against Wisconsin
