What i found interesting is the officiating was consistent with the okla/tcu game. Psu was down before breaking the endzone on their 1st down but rewarded & okla was rewarded 1st down on 4th & 2 when hurts was 1 yard short. And fields knee down vs ball loose and when was hurts pick pocketed, knee down vs ball out, both went to the defense. So those 2 plays really stood out to me...

Okla might go down as well.... So depending on that game, i dont think psu drops more than 1 bc poss 2+ teams above drops and minny should jump back up above psu. My guess is psu no lower than #10, likely #9.

Serious question... What about fickell coaching the browns? He stays in ohio. Gets to compete with vrabel. group of 5 coaches dont get the super stud athletes, so winning at that level requires a little more x's & o's than jimmy & joes... Any chance that works out? I mean, cant get any worse for cleveland.

Superstars were in every position including the 2 deep over the last few years, this year is no exception. What improvement I'm happy to see is that we weren't forcing touches/snap counts this year. It was hard to watch when coaches were calling plays for a specific player where everyone knew who was getting the ball. This year, it seems more plays flow from the reads and formations the defense gave our offense. We are taking what is available when we aren't designing plays to isolate a favorable situation. On defense, we are also playing packages to get people involved based on what the opposing offense uses. I get the putting the best 11 players on the field mentality. But this year seems to be getting the best 11 players for the situation.

It feels like one of those years where all of our key opponents does us no favors.... Neb was suppose to undefeated & legit when we played. Msu was suppose to be undefeated when we played. Wisky was suppose to be undefeated when we play. So if this trends, psu gonna lose to um, um gonna lose to nd... Smh. Just glad the buckeyes are legit dominating and sos dont matter.

My thoughts about the Bullet position is that it wasn't utilized because the offenses we played didn't require it. Most teams haven't been able to consistently counter our base defense. What analysts keep saying is that the seems are vulnerable if attacked but our opponents haven't capitalize consistently. Im wondering if the Bullet defense will be the wrinkle that is the counter to future opponents gameplan to exploit that "weakness". A bait, if you will, like how our offense has plays that build off previous plays to bait opposing defenses to wrongly cheat on routes that aren't really there.

Sorry, i gave up my dvr so i havent done the research but based on my memory, i think there is a couple of differences btw the 2 that hasnt been mentioned. Jk runs are often based on a read option/rpo look (even tho its handed off to jk). Which may affect the way the oline sets up its blocks differently. For mt3, its more hand off runs where the oline is committed to just run blocking giving a better lane. My thoughts had been, the oline blocks better for mt3 than jk. Glad to have both but sometimes id hope we use mt earlier to pound & wear out the opponents faster or put both on the field like how boren plowed holes as the lead runner.
