I don't buy the argument that Urban coming back caused our issues. First of all our D is our main concern and he delegates that out. The run game is our main probable on offense and that was an issue from day one...it didn't start when he came back. I do think Haskins has looked a bit different but I think teams have started to figure out how to play him.

I'm probably in the minority but his reliance on so much man/man makes me nervous. I've seen us play that with little time remaining in the half and receivers are very close to making the play. We seen PSU do that for the past couple of years with tall wr's who make plays. It just puts a tremendous amount of stress on the D. What's saved us is the pressure from the front. There is a reason nobody us runs it as much as we do.

No it's not Schiano's...one can do a search and find the variables that go into the decision as to whether a DB turns. I wish they would put a sticky note somewhere so we don't get this response so often. Actually Speilman had a pretty explanation of it and said almost everyone uses that technique..even in the NFL. It's frustrating to have people blame the players

Probably like most here..I only paid attention during the WSU bowl game. Announcers claimed he was one of the 'up and coming' DC's. I'm not sure how one knows that. They did say he's had to adjust the D quite a bit as their D is undersized. Uses some unconventional scheme at times. Probably doesn't have to do that at OSU but it won't hurt to have that in the tool box.

What was nice to see was guys were open quite a bit. There are a number situations where JT had multipe guys open. During the game many were complaining about WR not getting open but I seen several open wr's. JT just has to have the confidence to go to them Heck Indy rarely had guys wide open but they throw it anyway

I know this is about M's D but hard not to be frustrated with our recievers and route trees. Sometimes have nobody short...everyone is going deep. And when routes are finished guys just stand there.If QB starts to scramble you need to help him..either block if he's past the LOS or find an opening

Maybe not totally related..but I'd like to see them change the scheduling so the bye week team

travels for the next game. It's ridiculous for us to get home from Wisky (after they had a bye week) and then

travel the next week to a team that also had a bye. Listening to one of the sports betting talk shows

they give a sizeable disadvantage to the teams that have to do that.

We'll see how it translates on the field..but hard not to notice how much stronger Paris looks  now.

The guy is much bigger in the upper body area. I think he was known as a speed guy early on. I

think he showed a hint of that in the spring game as he brushed off a tackle that I think brings him down

last year. The coaches obviously see something in him and they know a lot more than we do..so we'll see.
