74 yard TD and 59 Yard TD.  I don't care how far the ball traveled in the air as long as they made throws to open up the run.  That is exactly what they did in the 2nd half.  This is why Urban recruits the best athletes in the country.

The best thing about last night was the fact that  we didn't panic with our play calling and run JT 30 times!!  It's a lot easier to get going as a QB when you are not taking dozens of hits on carries and getting fatigued.  I really hope the coaching staff sticks to that approach all year long.  JT Barrett is never going to be an elite thrower, but he has shown the ability to get the ball to his play makers in the past.

I know there has been a lot of talk about the DB's this morning, but I think you have to give a lot of credit to Tom Allen and his gameplan. He found the one area where his team could take advantage with their big WR's and they attacked it.  I really felt like a lot of those plays were well covered, but Lagow made a good throw and the WR made a better catch.  Its asking a lot of young DB's to win 1 on 1 battles with WR like that.  I feel the staff probably realized they underestimated the WR and made adjustments.  I think you could see where this class of DB's have a lot of upside and will only get better.  

This gives the defense something to prepare for next week because Oklahoma has a couple big WR in Andrews and Mead.  I think Mayfield's style of play will give our Dline a chance to get to him.  As good as Mayfield is, I don't think his strengths are to make quick reads in the pocket like Lagow was doing.

Correct.  Peppers also plays more of an LB role and they blitz him a lot.  I honestly believe that Hooker will get drafted ahead of Peppers once these NFL teams start to focus on the draft.  

As a Browns fan, I would love to see our draft go Garrett first and Hooker with the Eagles pick.

First of all, I still really believe in this coaching staff to turn things around.  Michigan State and Michigan are prime examples of how rare it is to continue reload and win every year.  MSU is on a 5 game losing streat this year after going to the Playoff and starting out ranked high this year.  Meyer has lost 5 games in 4.5 years here!

 I think two things stand out to me that need to be changed and they really both tie into the same issue.  This coaching stuff seems to be calling plays for the OSU offense of the past two years and not this years offense.  That being said, I am still going to offer him my couch wisdom.

1.  The O-Line is being asked to block for long slow developing plays.  They run the read option where JT and Weber come to almost a complete stop in the backfield before making a decision on where to go.  This is not the same O-Line and run blocking against blitzes for slow developing read option plays are going to be difficult against opponents with a good front 7.  (Oklahoma's front 7 is not good)

2. Curtis Samuel.  He goes way too long without getting any touches.  Meyer became famous for getting Harvin the ball in space a million different ways.  I would like to see some quick routes letting him run after the catches.  We need to get back to making the defense cover sideline to sideline.

Lamar Jackson the only thing to watch Friday night and Petrino will try to get him 50 TD's for his Heisman run.  He is really fun to watch though.

Haha. I had to read this twice.

I agree with everyone that he has done enough for us and I will have no hard feelings for him.  He has a young daughter and has to put her before anyone.  I seriously hope he shows up at the combine throws it 80 yards in front of scouts, runs a 4.5, and flies up the boards and makes a ton of money. 

I would be extremely excited if he stayed too.

I watched the game with friends at my house and my body feels this morning like I played middle LB for Oregon last night.  I taste beer every time I breathe.  My stomach is just a mess from booze, junk food, and no sleep.  I swear I have already nodded out 2-3 times at my desk this morning and I have been at work for 25 minutes.  

And I am the happiest person in the world right now.  It's hard to imagine any future Championships feeling as sweet as that one did.  Considering everything this team has gone through and the fact that we steam rolled the best of the SEC to get there.  Wow.

I truly believe Cardale could think about turning pro if he plays great the next two games and would lead us to an NC.  I would say he has the best NFL tools of the 3, and he also has his age working against him if he plays two more years.  

I am not saying that it would be the right or wrong choice on his part.  I just think 2 more victories would make that a real possibility because he has the potential to be a great project pick.  Maybe he ends up being Jamarcus Russell without the Purple Drank.
