This looks like a good route to try a couple more times.

I've watched both games against Ohio State in prior years, the two Clemson wins over Alabama, and their win over UVA, all on Youtube. I'm going to watch the games against Alabama they lost soon, plus the UNC game again. I'm not sure there's tremendous lessons to be gleaned thus far other than 1) they're good against a mobile QB but run defense is generally more suspect than I expected and 2) the middle of the field is constantly wide open across every game I've seen, more likely to beat them there.

Point 3 was the most salient. His injury made him less decisive, so he held on to the ball and got sacked. Wisconsin sacked him quite a bit the first time too. If he were more decisive, in 50% of the cases he'd make a run for it and pick up positive yardage, probably enough for a first down. In 30% of cases he'd probably take a sack or just maintain the line of scrimmage. In 20% he'd probably see someone open downfield. 

With the injury, those numbers flipped from 50% to like 20% and 30% to 60%. It was painfully obvious.

LSU is good and Burrow is great but the SEC had a down year and LSU was lucky to face a hobbled Alabama. I think they’re going to lose to Oklahoma. 

Comment 11 Dec 2019

I just can't take the idea of LSU's defense being fixed seriously when the competition was a terrible Georgia offense and Texas A&M, which had nothing to play for on the road.

After giving up 38 and 37 to the likes of Texas, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt, I just don't see how you turn that around. I am not saying they haven't improved, but there are still glaring weaknesses that were exposed.

Go ahead and downvote me, but then don't use our wins over 3 highly ranked teams to finish this season as a justification for being number one, because if you disagree with this, then you're saying TTUN would be better off being 0-12 and giving us no boost in strength of schedule or style points.

I'd be fine with them losing one other game as insurance so we win the Big 10 East before the Game, like this year. But it's undeniably good for Harbaugh to be their John Cooper.

Problem is, that while Clemson has wanted to throw more deep balls this year than previous years because of Trevor's arm, their history and the reason they won national championships is their short pass game, particularly screens and quick play action throws to the side of the field that spread the defense out. I expect they will go back to that much more.

Don't worry, he'll get plenty of time in our upcoming blowouts of Clemson and Oklahoma.

Comment 09 Dec 2019

I'd much rather know this team can go anywhere, play anywhere, face tremendous adversity back to back to back, and dominate to win by double digits, than see them playing FCS and cupcake teams in blowouts. Thankfully we get a 3 week break to rest up and fuel up for the big game. 

Comment 09 Dec 2019

It wouldn't happen, we'd be 3 seed at best. They'd be debating whether to make us the 4th seed and bump up Oklahoma. 

Comment 08 Dec 2019

Offensively, I think if we incorporate more RPO’s, and roll JF out of the pocket, there will be opportunities for him to take off for big runs if he is healthy. 
 

Defensively, I watched Chase Young probably every other play except 3rd and long, because I knew Wisconsin would have trouble there. On all those other plays, they double teamed and shifted the line toward him. It’s a great strategy if the other team doesn’t blitz and overload the other side of the line. Whenever we did, we got to Coan. Do that more. 

Comment 08 Dec 2019

Pity us for worrying about a team being beatable because they won by 11, 29, and 13 points over top 10 teams back to back to back.
