No Committee is keeping an unbeaten OSU out of the CFP. If that happens a system change would be in order. As long as OSU keeps on winning they control their own destiny.
The poor safety play was definitely on him but that's about it. Fuller struggled last season playing under Grinch to say the least.
It was a downright confident kick on Haubeil's part. It brought back wonderful memories of Nuge tbh.
Considering how much of a control freak Jerry Jones is I'm not sure Urban would be able to handle that kind of micromanagement. He's never had to deal with that in the college ranks.
With Dak Prescott at QB he might be able to make his offense work there. Prescott is well versed in the read option.
You mean like Purdue beating us last year and then basically folding the rest of the season after that (which made the loss look 10 times worse)? This is exactly why the rest of the conference frustrates me so much (especially the West side of the division). Pull your fucking weight for crying out loud.
What we saw in last year's defense wasn't Grinch's scheme, it was Schiano's. Grinch had the biggest influence over the safety position last year and clearly his philosophy didn't mesh well with Schiano's but last year's defense was still very much in Schiano's image.
He did. He dwarfed everybody else on the field last night lol.
IIRC Minnesota has a guy who is a 6'9" leviathan on their offensive line. He's also struggled quite frequently as a starter with them (probably because defenders know how easy it is to get underneath leverage on him due to his height). Size is good to have as an offensive lineman but it also is no guarantee of success (especially for a true freshman coming into the game at one of the most difficult positions to adjust to). Isaiah Prince was a massive dude as well and we saw how much he struggled with the mental aspect of the game. With freshmen it's almost a guarantee that they're going to have mental hurdles to overcome.
I can't wait to see him either but he's also a true freshman. Most offensive linemen typically aren't ready to start their freshman year.
Fair point. Mine is probably an accurate representation of what he'll do to the NW offensive line tomorrow night lol.
I had my doubts about him due to the fact that he was a converted WR but he's been a pleasant surprise. He'll very likely be our number 1 corner next season with Arnette, Okudah, and Wade all departing for the NFL after this season. Hopefully he turns into the next Chris Gamble.
Come to OSU, pair him with Ryan Watts and hopefully Elias Ricks if Hafley can work miracles and watch the magic of DBU happen lol.
This kid looks like a Parris Campbell type who can do a little bit of everything. All I can say to that is yes please.
That's what they WANT to be. Their offense currently has no identity whatsoever and they haven't had a pass play go for longer than 11 yards all season. The only bright spot on their offense has been Isaiah Bowser's replacement at RB, Drake Anderson, and he's going against one of the best run defenses in the country in this game (even without Browning on the field).
I think in regards to Chase this gif applies more:
Have you watched NW's offense at all this year? Whoever is calling plays for them very well might be incompetent. Hunter Johnson is only a former 5-star recruit at QB and he's looked like absolute dog shit this year in NW's offense.
I would think Hilliard is the next man up at LB since he can play all three positions and is overall probably the most interchangeable LB we have currently. Browning being out is obviously going to increase Borland's snap count, that's inevitable.
I think Hilliard would be in line to start at WILL over Gant if they made that move (especially considering he filled in for Harrison at that position last year against Minnesota). Hilliard has been seeing more work on defense in 4-LB sets in recent weeks than Gant has.
Any ownership group that charges $60 for parking and actually tries to sell obstructed view seats (some of which are directly behind pillars I might add) for more than a penny deserves to be boycotted through and through. It's remarkable how much Dan Snyder chooses to piss all over the Skins fanbase with his business practices.
Hilliard has been seeing a significant amount of action in 4 LB sets in recent weeks and is maybe the most interchangeable LB we have (he can play all three LB positions from what I understand) so I think he'll see more action than Dallas Gant (Gant has primarily been confined to ST action this year and has seen very little action on defense).
Heinz has gotten better now that the Rooneys have finally decided to stop being cheap asses regarding field maintenance and switched to field turf. Candlestick is obviously no longer around (although the field at Levi's is arguably just as bad) and the Raiders are moving out of the Coliseum soon so it won't be their problem for much longer. That leaves FedEx Field and Soldier Field that have stayed consistently the same since 2013. With FedEx Field Snyder just doesn't give a shit about maintaining it because he's too busy trying to fuck over taxpayers to get a new stadium built closer to the D.C. Metro Area (which isn't going to happen anytime soon thanks to Dan's shady reputation). In regards to Soldier Field I don't know why the Halas family continues to force their team to play inside that relic. It's the smallest NFL stadium currently in terms of seating numbers and they've done such a poor job of maintaining it that it actually got taken off the list of national landmarks in Chicago. I understand it has history but it's not the type of history that makes it completely irreplaceable as is the case with old school stadiums like Lambeau and Wrigley.
34-6. I think they'll slow down our offense somewhat but I don't see their offense getting into the end zone in this game. JK once again goes for over 100 yds.
Not as much as short grass or dying grass. Case in point FedEx Field. That stadium is a fucking death trap for players once the cold weather games ensue because the grass is poorly maintained (another example of Dan Snyder being a complete shithead who has no business managing an NFL team) and by November they're basically playing on a hard surface with painted dirt. There's a reason why both RG3 and Alex Smith suffered gruesome career-altering injuries playing on that field. With long grass you at least have a cushion every time a tackle is made. Now if the grass is as difficult to run on as the old astroturf that the Vet (old Eagles stadium) was notorious for that's a different story.
Any game involving Rutgers should automatically be banished to BTN no matter what.
