Two seasons ago we left a steaming pile on the field most games, and look how tough we played OSU that year. I would say they're capable of anything. They might implode, or they might rally around all the laughter and criticism and come to play. I can easily see the former, as they seem to have some issues, But I won't be surprised if they're shouldering a big chip with an axe to grind - I still think we can beat 'em if that's the case, but it would be a game.

Among other things, I couldn't believe they ran the same first play in each of the first two OTs - each for ~15 yards. Fool me once...
Good teaching moment game for the D.

Confessional thread? I voiced my hope a few times that Speight be given a chance before last week. So happy with Rudock's play. I'm surprised he didn't hit this form 2-3 games earlier, but not surprised he's playing well.

So you think a student of color attending the game should be subjected to the emotional duress and anxiety of sitting in a sea of white supremacy symbolism just because it was a pre-planned event?
You, Mr. Ice Veins, just don't care, and are therefore a racist.
Brian!, you have eight days to kick Salvatore off the site.

So I guess that "1950" student group will be conducting the coaching search - sans media coverage no doubt. Good for them!!!

Sparty controls their own destiny in the B1G. Sure they're pissed off, but they still have a lot to play for. I think they roll Maryland and lose a hard fought one to OSU (my mind can not fathom any other outcome in that one!).

|2 weeks 6 days ago||I welcomed Rudock,||
I welcomed Rudock, anticipating a competent game manager capable of making some plays with his legs, and throwing an accurate long ball - based on the extensive analysis done on this site, and watching Iowa game film. I understand the new-offense factor, and thus a shaky start, but I don't understand the lack of downfield accuracy relative to his past, and over halfway through the season.
How do you know that he's still very clearly the #1 guy? Comparing him to last year doesn't substantiate much. Protecting the ball is huge and should not be downplayed, but the lack of long ball accuracy limits the offense beyond the obvious big play.
Especially with an excellent defens, I'll take an additional big play TD (and the running game benefit that comes with that threat) at the expense of an additional INT - assuming Speight is more TO-prone, which we don't know, but might if he were to get some non-garbage time.
Game management will beat most teams on the schedule. To beat the really good teams you need to be firing on as many offensive cylinders as possible, and hope TOs are minimal.

I'd love to see Speight start. See what we have in him. If he struggles then put Rudock in. I don't see that as too big a gamble cuz we're home with Rutgers. If he's no better, nothing lost. A little fire under Rudock may be a good thing. It would be a chance to see meaningful snaps from Speight, and maybe he lights it up. At a minimum we'd be all the better should Rudock get dinged again.
I know, "coach knows best", which is why it might happen?

John Harbaugh to Maryland.
If I'm Maryland, I'd offer him the world. He's local, got his SB ring, and maybe up for a change and a helluva challenge?
Go big or go...languish in the bottom of the B1G East for the next decade.

This (1st round byes) has no place in the CFP for many reasons. Primarily what's stated above (though I'd substitute 'advantage' for 'incentive'). This isn't the NFL (16 game season, only 32 teams, much more parity) where it makes far more sense.
Can you imagine the kerfuffle over which two teams get an inside track to the championship? Plus, maximize the opportunity if you're going to extend the season another week.
There will be a kerfuffle every year regardless, which is why we'll go to 8 teams ASAP. The fewer teams (4 vs 8) the greater the kerfuffle.
And...as if that's not already enough, all you MGo-math-majors please chime in to explain how our chances are better making an 8- vs 4-team CFP.
