We have entered into Bye Week after two great performances against ranked teams. The team is performing better than nearly everyone predicted at the beginning of the season and beating OSU and a Big Ten Title are now looking more possible than ever. Awesome.
When it comes to Bye Week, I'm curious to know what the board thinks about the best approach for maximizing the opportunity Bye Week presents. I'm especially interested in the opinion of any coaches and ex players.
Do you take the first week of bye week to just focus on improving problem areas without having a specific focus on PSU? Do you take two entire weeks to prep for PSU, with other game planning (OSU) sprinkled in? Is it better to take it easier this week to allow for a bit of rest and recovery or is it better to keep everything consistent and practice the same as if you had a Saturday game?
To sum up: With the luxury of extra time and no game scheduled this Saturday, what's the best way to capitalize on the Bye and make it an advantage heading into the final portion of the season?
