I don't know. There is a whole different approach to coaching the incumbent vs. the challenger. Dabo was great at one, lets see if he knows how to motivate a repeat before we crown him.
Agree. PSU showed us who they really were with the game today vs. Iowa. Wisconsin is the one to be concerned about. Especially if we play them twice. Upside is that the higher they're ranked, the better beating them looks.
This is what I wanted to see about Oklahoma. Texas isn't a great defense (66th in SP+) and they are causing the sooners a lot of problems in the redzone. Hurts is turning the ball over. I'd really like the chance to play Oklahoma in the playoffs.
I think they have the cleanest pocket for their QBs. If you're not under pressure and you're throwing to NFL-ready wide outs, you'll look pretty good. I'm very curious to see what Bama's offense will look like when they play against a legit pass rush. I don't know if that will happen until the playoffs.
+1. UCF had been averaging over 49 points per game to this point. So Cinci's d is not awful. Helps our SoS and is another data point that our O is really good.
Johnny, can there be a level between guarded and low just for situations like this? Call it "participation trophy", meaning its still low but they feel warm and fuzzy about themselves.
Nick Charlton. Rutgers isn't going to get an elite FBS option at coach. Take the best eastern time zone option from the FCS ranks and try to build with someone younger and innovative. Charlton took Maine to their 1st FCS semifinal berth in his first year and his primary recruiting responsibility as an assistant was NJ.
+1. Why don't more teams just start by doing this first????
... and the QBs we end the season with ON the team aren't the ones we start the next with!
Hurts had been getting time throughout the year at Bama. By the time Tua got injured the opportunity to redshirt was long gone.
I enjoyed Buck68's posts for the most part. Couldn't always quite follow everything but it felt like he was trying to add to the discussion, even if it wasn't the same discussion the rest of us were having.
I think the toughest thing for TTUN/Harbaugh right now has got to be that Wisconsin basically destroyed them running the offense that Harbaugh wants to run. He gave up on his traditional/old-school pro-style offense to switch to something 'better' then has to watch Paul Chryst beat him at his own game. That has to have the coaches second guessing themselves up north.
