I totally agree.  He has a big tendency to hold the ball too long and think his legs will get him out of the situation, and on a bad knee in particular it's causing some issues.  I hope his knee is right by gametime or they work with him on getting rid of the ball more quickly.

If you assume a role as a national analyst, you have to at least try and be objective.  Desmond fails horribly at that,it's just a waste of airtime hearing his opinions when Michigan is involved.  I don't need to hear a Michigan guy routinely plug his own team, it's of no value to a national audience.

We should be #1, but LSU probably still will be because we "only" beat PSU by 2 scores.  There isn't all that much separation in our resumes any more, and we've been far more dominant.  Assuming we both win out, our resume will be stronger and it's hard to see us not being #1.  But the SEC-boner is strong.

They're probably already bitching about the refs.  That's what they do after every game. Always the refs fault.

I don't think they win without KJ Hamler having a monster game - so if I'm them I get the ball in his hands a lot.  He's scary no matter who you are and they'll need him to break big plays to be in this game late.

I'd try and replicate what they did last year on us too - wreck havoc in the backfield and make the QB uncomfortable.  Haskins was shaky as hell that game and even in the comeback, it was screens doing most of the work.  We haven't seen how Fields performs under that kind of pressure yet so I'd be wanting to try and be the team to find out how he does in that circumstance.  I'd also take away Dobbins 100% on any zone reads and take my chances with Fields.  Either guy is dangerous but I'd rather get more hits on Fields.

Seems like some people are so anxious to hate on Herbstreit.  He said the suspension is 4 based on the amount, which is true by the guidelines, but that Ohio State is appealing for less.  Which is true, it's exactly what's happening.  And then later, brought it up again to emphasize that there's a good chance it'll be less than 4.  What more do people want, this is accurate.  It's just so trendy to bash ESPN and Herbstreit though even when they're accurate.

There were a few times there the LBs (I didn't really notice who each time) kind of let Martinez get the edge on them, where it could have been prevented with a better angle.  Not necessarily something I'm worried about but with a win that easy, you gotta nitpick a little.  I also want to see how Fields does under more pressure.  Haskins looked great early but then against TCU and PSU in the face of pressure, looked way less comfortable.  And we probably would have lost that Penn State game if the screen game hadn't bailed us out.  So hopefully things just keep rolling even against more pressure and better teams.

He'll get plenty of opportunities to use his legs without forcing it.  And you can still mix it in, or use it in tight games without it being a major presence in the offense and without risking his health against softer teams.  Running QBs have a tendency to get injured and we've seen it happen plenty of times here.  If it happens this year we're in serious trouble.
