Slaughterhouse Five - Kurt Vonnegut.  I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, admittedly, but damn that was one weird read.

The Pearl - John Steinbeck

Comment 09 Dec 2019

On the Buckeye Podcast by Cleveland.com, Doug Lesmerises said that one of the defensive coaches (I think it was Hafley he referenced) said they had to make A LOT of halftime adjustments this week, compared the few they made the previous few weeks.

Wisconsin ran a very differently dressed up offense than last time.  They didn't change their identity - still tried to power run, short, quick throws, but the formations they lined up in and the motions they ran were very different than in late October.

I suspect both OSU and Clemson will add fair amount of wrinkles in the next three weeks, but the biggest thing this break will allow our defense to do is get back to basics - wrapping up and bringing guys down.  They've done that well all year until the last two weeks and I think much of it is due to the nature of three HUGE games back-to-back-to-back.  Get healthy, back to basics, prepare.  They got this.

Clemson the early favorites at -2.  I remember leading up to the 2016 semifinal that OSU was still being favored at -3, and I believed it.  Would rather play as the underdog, even though I really do think we are (marginally) better.

This game, I think, is a toss up.  Both these teams are experienced, dynamic, and explosive, and one play or just a couple key plays could swing the entire game.  Preparation is the key, as our ass whooping proved in 2016.  Can Day outscheme Venables?  Can Hafley and Mattison slow down Etienne and those wide receivers?  As we’ve seen the last few weeks, turnovers have crippled our offense at times - can’t do that against a team like Clemson.

That's literally all the Skull Session is every morning.

EDIT: Further, Birm comes round these parts from time to time as well, even though he writes for a competitor.

Color me surprised.  Good coach, good program (Boise and UW).  Best of luck as he moves forward.

Just Finished Killing Floor, the first in the Jack Reacher series, followed by Hillbilly Elegy.  Reacher was ok, I thought HE was a good read.

Which program has the worst fans?

Don't lie, Dan Hope, you had your recap done by halftime.

How much of the offensive playbook do you think has been opened so far?  We've seen crossing routes a few times the last couple weeks and some passing attempts down the field - is this a precursor to a wide open game plan for the next three weeks?

Eric Glover-Williams?  Not sure if he was ever suspended but I’m positive he was dismissed.

At what point in the first quarter did you have 90% of your game report written?

My kids got to take a picture with Big Nut and he gave them his last two buckeye necklaces, changing my impression of him.  Rank the OSU super fans.
