my only worry is that villanova and unc have looked pretty pedestrian (outside of unc's win over oregon, and who knows how good oregon is). however, beating unc by 20+ at their place is great and still sends a huge message.

the crazy thing is that this team already has four ELITE defenders (young, a wesson, luther, walker) and we're barely into december. i thought liddell was fantastic yesterday as well. all three big men can pass. i could go on and on.

agree with all sentiments here. the stadium is just not intimidating. it's so spread out that it actually looks smaller than far smaller-capacity stadiums like camp randall and spartan that are built more vertically (at least on one side each). that also has the effect of letting all the noise just go straight out of the stadium.

as far as b1g stadiums go, it's beaver and the shoe, and everyone else.

i agree that the on-the-surface star ratings arent that far apart. what is MILES apart is the mental toughness that our coaches look for (and drive home once the kids are here). it's the reason our guys make huge catches after drops and muffs (olave, wilson) and theirs drop ball after ball (dpj) and untie guys' shoes right in front of the refs. the star ratings are physical gifts. we get plenty of four and five star guys who are also mentally tough (it's why we've moved on from the derrick greens and kareem walkers of the world in the past), but it's also why we get guys like olave, josh perry, troy smith, etc who are three star players just on the surface but are five star guys as far as mental toughness and work ethic. it started with tressel, continued with urban, and hopefully will continue with day.

you can credit the lack of false starts to the turnover at RT as well as our center actually being...a center

exactly. it's backwards from the typical procedure but too many schools fire a guy when nobody better is available. this way they can have their cake and eat it too.

the helton at usc situation is simple to decipher. they are talking to urban and he hasn't answered definitively yet. if the answer is yes, helton is gone. if it's no, he stays.

i'd rather play wisconsin because if we take care of ttun on saturday, with a wisconsin win we lock up the playoffs regardless of what happens in the b1gcg. i don't think there's much of a chance of a loss to wisc or minn, but there's a chance we get left out if the unthinkable happens against minn; no chance of that with wisc since they have lost 2.
