Petway nails threes to death metal. Seriously.
I know, I know... everyone's said their piece on this, blah blah blah. But I'm kind of shocked I haven't seen the following idea more often in the tide of opinion about moving the Game: Why don't we just play OSU the weekend before Thanksgiving as the second to last regular season game of the year?
The odds of either team, let alone both, having locked up the division in 7 games must be next to zero, so it eliminate the chance for a rematch the next week. Also, since this is the more traditional home for the game anyway, you'd still have that sensory memory (is that the right term?) of OSU and Michigan on the third Saturday in November. And it's not like it's unheard of for us to play another game the week after OSU (remember that Hawaii game in 1998?), so you can't really make the argument that it would be ruining some kind of tradition.
Isn't this the best compromise? Keep the other protected interdivisional rivalries in October, but allow Michigan and Ohio State to be an exception for tradition's sake.

Well the preseason scrimmage has been played.
J. T. Floyd and James Turner were on the first team for cornerbacks, and it would seem Marvin Robinson is amongst the first team safeties. Soft zone defense for pass coverage was prefered to bump and run coverage.
The linebackers seem more competent than last year, but experience were be valuable for Moundros over the course of the year.
What other observations were seen by members at the scrimmage.
Any thoughts on the freshman - Christian and Avery?
Looks like Steven Threet might be the starter this year at ASU. Good to see, and I wish him all the best. I hope he pulls ahead of the other guy and has a great year.
