    I believe that even this game is going to come down to the coaches. Who can make the best adjustments and who can understand the other team the best. Anyone agree?

    Well our defense is screwed....

    I do think the D needs to play with A LOT more intensity and heart. Both Fox and Sally will be back to my understanding, im hoping Fox can create some turnovers. Its his last year he's not going to hold ANYTHING back.

    I agree. And in this context, Tressel has it all over Carr, the Clown who will cry.

  5. If our TOP is 10 minutes less than the weasels it's gonna be unpleasant. Our D can't continue carrying the load with too much time on the field...and showing fatigue into the 4th.

    Our 3rd and 9 and 3 and out can't prevail for Bucks to win on Saturday.

    Actually Snyder made great halftime adjustments last week at Purdue...too bad he undid them in the last 5 minutes of the game.

    I agree, he did.. But this year so far, Purdue has been the exception.. So I am not anticipating that will be the case this week. Although i hope it is.

    Actually, he's been improving every game since the Iowa debacle. In the Indiana game, the defense held the Hoosiers to 60 yards total offense in the second half after giving up 167 yards in the first half. Against Penn State, his defense held the Nittany Lions to 79 yards total offense in the second half after giving up almost 170 in the first half. At Michigan State, the defense held MSU to 6 points and one notable drive (67 yards) in the second half...the Spartans got less than 120 yards offense the rest of the half. And that was after MSU stole the momentum back from us at the end of the first half. At Purdue, the defense held the Boilermakers to 77 yards offense in their first five drives of the second half, and this was after Purdue had 236 yards in the first half. Unfortunately, someone decided that a soft zone with just over 2 minutes left in the game would be good enough to stop Kyle Orton.

    So we've got Tressel, Snyder, and Bollman on the sidelines watching the game at field level. Who the hell is in the pressbox watching the plays develop? Graduate Assistants? :(

    well I'm not sure if they are still doing it.. but Bollman last I remember had been moved to the pressbox. Also, Mel Tucker (Co-Defensive Coordinator) is running in the pressbox.

    Great post. That's pretty good evidence that Snyder is making the right adjustments. Now let's see what he does in the only game that counts. :wink:

    Sounds like our defensive coaching staff should make their halftime adjustments before the game instead.

    I know this isn't the correct forum, but I have to say I am still vexed by this.
