In a bizarre College Football Kafkaesque twist, you wake up not as a giant cockroach, but as Al Borges.(Do NOT go there.)
Your season is shot, your program is reeling, and your job is in the crosshairs. The Game is your last desperate chance at redemption before the long cold winter sets in.
Forget about what you want the offense to be in the future or what you wanted it to be in the past, how are you going to beat Ohio State this week with these players?
You are not going to beat them straight up. You will have to think outside the (9 men in the) box. There is no point in any risk aversion at this juncture.
Do you roll the dice, spread 'em out, and go NASCAR, ala the first half of the CMU game? Do you try to run Devin to put pressure on their D knowing that he may be injured? Do you cross your fingers and hope that Green and the OL have made enough progress to fall forward for 2 yards at a time and keep Devin out of third and long? Do dare give Morris some reps?
None of these are very good options, most of them are a little desperate, but desperate is all you've got at this point in time. You won't beat Ohio State without doing something risky and imaginative.
What's your plan, Al?
