we don't have a QB coach, and haven't since Rod Smith left (who himself developed a different skill set of QB).

When you have a QB coach, the QB coach can coach up the QBs on the side lines in games while the OC is in the booth, and the QB coach can coach up the QBs during practice, while the OC works on the overall strategy and tactics across the offensive players.

Our quarterbacks don't get dedicated coaching and counselling - this is why they haven't developed quickly enough (said particularly int he light of three OC changes).

I would imagine that all ESPN would have to do is test market these highlights under the title, "The B1G As It Is" and that would pretty much solve the problem. That, and the highlights of Iowa on offense yesterday or the entire first half of PSU-IU, the latter being marketed as "A Tribute To Solid Punting".

Lol, there were almost as many special teams "highlights" as there were us on offense.  Sigh. 

Credit to Cunningham though for getting it right on Clark early in the game.  And that play Ryan had on the cross and PBU was beautiful.

I think that Drake Johnson could have rushed for 200 yards against NW. Hoke puts him in for a few plays and must have thought the Indiana game was a fluke? He still had that explosiveness like last week. Maybe the fumble cost him? I don't know, I'm ready to see something new. The OL is blocking the runs and pass better. I think Deveon runs opposite of what the OL is blocking for.

I also hate watching replays of WR and TE that Gardner doesn't see, or throws to too late. He has the time to throw now. He has PTSD from last year I think.
