|16 hours 37 min ago||OSU versus Clemson?||
Jerry Palm's Projections
|17 hours 13 min ago||We are a light year away from a B1G title.||
Which according to my calculations, takes 365 days.
|17 hours 15 min ago||I bet they jump to 4th tomorrow||
Had they been undefeated, they would have been no lower than 5th (undefeated below a disrespected Mizzou?) and would have jumped to 2nd with the victory over OSU.
|17 hours 23 min ago||Agreed||

|17 hours 43 min ago||We need to send an assistant coach around to the high schools||
|17 hours 45 min ago||Great call by Dantonio on that halfback pass||
|17 hours 48 min ago||Exactly||
There's no logic in saying we don't "develop" our underclassmen.
Maybe we should have an assistant coach travel around the high schools to coach up our likely recruits.
|17 hours 51 min ago||Yeah, he's gonna hate it when we win the B1G next year||
Nothing to complain about.

|18 hours 23 min ago||OK, I will||
I'm not the least bit affected by your feelings of jealousy.
|18 hours 32 min ago||The announcer said it on National TV||
This isn't something manufactured by an MGoBlog poster.
|18 hours 36 min ago||Auburn beat defending national champion Alabama||
Auburn clearly deserves it.
If FSU had blown it, I think Sparty had an argument over an Auburn-Alabama do-over. Not as the better team than Alabama, but as the team that hadn't blown its chance against Auburn.
|18 hours 47 min ago||You mean Little Brother won the Big Ten||
Just ask Gus Johnson.
|18 hours 48 min ago||What a game!||
MSU knocks OSU out of the national championship game and gets called Little Brother by the announcer.
Best possible outcome given the meteor mailed it in.
Go Little Brother!!!
|18 hours 55 min ago||Little Brother!!!||
It looked to me like Braxton was going to make it, but Little Brother says no!
|19 hours 15 min ago||I changed my mind||
These announcers are awesome
paying dividends for "Little Brother". Ha
|20 hours 1 min ago||It looked like the Tight End was wide open for a TD||
down the field.
Instead, Cook throws a pick over the middle.
|20 hours 25 min ago||Seriously, with a Sparty blowout,||
the Okie St loss, Auburn beating Mizzou, and a Duke upset over FSU would have given Sparty a strong arument for a National Championship game spot.
Sparty could have made the argument that we'd already seen the Auburn-Bama game, so let's not give Bama a do-over against the team that just beat them when there is a plausible alternative.
FSU-Duke was 0-0 at the end of the 1st qtr, and only 7-0 when MSU was up 17 on OSU, but FSU at half leads 17-0.
Sparty almost got the 7-10 split to happen, but FSU seems to be closing any longshot prayer.
Now leading only 17-10, Sparty is in a fight just to win the game.
|20 hours 40 min ago||Damn. If MSU runs on 3rd & 10 w/ ~1:40 to go||
instead of throwing an incompletion, they punt with 56 seconds to go instead of 1:36, and OSU gets the ball with 43 seconds left in the half and no timeouts instead of 1:23.
Poor clock mgmt cost Sparty that Buckeye FG.

|1 day 17 hours ago||Jim Tressell presided over signing day in Feb 2011||
and Urban Meyer was able to spend 100% of his time recruiting from the date of his hire on Nov 28, 2011 until the Feb 2012 signing date.
Ohio State never had a recruiting pipeline / cupboard problem. They had a Luke Fickell as head coach for ~six months problem.
That's a much, much different situation than the back-to-back 2010-2011 recruiting dearth that Hoke inherited.
The impact of that recruiting hole reached its peak this year. Hoke's first real class (2012) will be redshirt sophomores / true juniors next year, and we'll certainly get some productivity out of the 2013 four-star bonanza. Enough to start to cover for the recruiting hole. By 2015, the recruiting hole will be in the rear-view mirror.Watch next year how that problem starts to fade next year will be largely in the rearview mirror in 2015. (When 2011 true freshman contributors would be gone anyway.)
|2 days 22 hours ago||Why is Central Florida not playing and why is Cincy||
the team that lost 45-17 to Illinois, even playing? I thought that the season-ending-mercy-rule was applied to teams losing by 28 to Illinois.

Center snaps ball to Devin
I AM optimistic about next year. Not so much about the 2013 season.

0-2 vs B1G-Championship Hunt Caliber Teams

3-0 vs "Auto-Win", barely
2008 Toledo was ranked #134 by Sagarin versus #95 Michigan. A loss to Akron would have been close to an all-lifetime-worst lost, and surely an all-lifetime upset/differential.

So by that view, there's been a drop off, but we're not yet in the clubhouse. Not nearly as bad as 2010-2011, and nothing back-to-back (which is really causing the current O-Line problems), and nothing that a 2014 10-2 won't fix.
