Props to the students at the Penn St game. Besides them, the Schott was maybe half-full and pretty quiet. The students definitely brought it though.
All-time great logo though.
Great analysis, Spartan. I don't think Clemson's corners are quite as good as advertised (outside AJ Terrell) and really think we'll be able to move the ball against their D, both through the air and on the ground.
Etienne, Ross, and Higgins will be nightmarish though. Lawrence has shown the ability to use his legs which gave us fits with Coan and Levis as well. It'll be interesting to see what Hafley/Mattison draw up with 3 weeks of preparation.
I'm pumped. These Tigers are made of paper this year, especially on defense. Lawrence is good, Etienne and Ross are elite. But that D isn't stopping Dobbins or our receivers.
I would probably have them 5, maybe 6 at the lowest behind Oregon. Baylor and Wisconsin shouldn't move off 7 and 8 either.
After watching our squad come back like that? No way am I betting against us.
Love the disrespect, lets go bury Dabo's smug ass.
Hell yeah, booking my ticket to Phoenix.
Heck, are they even outpacing our offense this year?
Removing grey shirts and penalizing oversigning could also help with parity.
However, the increasingly national nature of recruiting, where schools like Ohio St and Alabama can routinely pluck elite talent from outside their footprint (like from the West Coast), is going to continue the growing gap between haves and have-nots in college football.
I mean, last year Alabama, Clemson, and Notre Dame all finished undefeated.
Before that, I think USC, Oklahoma, and Auburn all finished undefeated in 2004 as well.
I think head-to-head the total better be like 35.
Wisconsin would use the same defense they used against us: 6-7 guys coming downhill on any given play with a tight cover-2 behind it. Fromm can't throw into those tight windows, so if the Badgers can stop Swift/Herrien on the ground, they stop Georgia's offense.
On the flip side, no idea how Wisconsin scores on Georgia's defense. They don't have the athletes on the perimeter (outside Cephus), nor do they have the athleticism up front to open lanes for Taylor.
I would predict Georgia 20 Wisconsin 10 at the end of the day.
Give me Clemson in front of a 70/30 crowd in Phoenix. I want revenge.
1. Georgia is a better win than Wisconsin.
2. But the committee's rankings show that Wisconsin (counts twice) and Penn St are better wins than Florida and Auburn.
3. Rankings also show Bama being a better win than Michigan.
I think points 2 and 3 are close enough to come out in the wash, so it comes down to whether a) beating Georgia is that much better than beating Wisconsin or b) is Ohio St's win over Cincinnati a difference maker.
The "Texas being a quality win" talk is ludicrous. A&M was probably a better win for LSU.
Hah Marvin didn't even believe in halftime adjustments. If we're going to give up a mismatch for 30 minutes, you can bet it'd be around in the 2nd half too.
Second 13-0 start in school history. We did 14-0 last time, lets get 15 on this round!
1. Ohio St
I feel ya Mr. Green regarding the comments. Seems like some MGOBloggers thought they'd chirp and live vicariously thru Wisconsin.
This D is inspired
Now THOSE are some silver bullets. Let's bring it home!!
Alright refs, you've made up for your 4 missed holding calls on Wisconsin
Congrats KJ, the epitome of consistency
My goodness that was a dying duck. It looks like he had no momentum on that kick.
About time, my goodness I thought they had left their hankies at home
