    Uhhh... we held same at 8 in AP (jumped LSU / got jumped by WVU), and move +1 in Coaches to 7 (jumped LSU).
    And I doubt we move much in CFP either... my guess would be 9. Move over UK and LSU, fall behind WVU.
    Not that I'm complaining... just for the record.

    It's all good. Dealing with the aftermath of a close friend putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger. Had everything going for him, family, profession, finances. Always the one with a smile on his face. Stunning how depression gets hidden. His oldest has college entrances examinations and a birthday this week and we bury him on Saturday. A bit shattered, I guess.

    Thanks for sharing. So sorry to hear this. I will be praying for all involved. I just lost a friend over the weekend to suicide as well. Another last month was brutally murdered. both in their early 40's. Puts things in perspective for sure. Grace and peace

    I am sorry for both of your losses. As someone who has been going though 3 months of hell and tried to drink himself to death 2 weeks ago, I agree that depression is no joke.

    Looking at the final numbers for the game from the offense, they finally achieved something that's been missing - balance.

    Granted it was a bit forced with the turnovers and the inaccuracy from Haskins, but the offense found something akin to the balance UFM has been preaching (and until this year, mostly achieving).

    Now for the fun part, every year, around this time, when the weather gets uber-shitty, Ohio State's passing offense does go into a bit of a shell and the running game becomes more emphasized. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

    The Not So Good…
    • The passing game was erratic at best. It was Haskins lowest completion percentage of the year (aided by two drops as well).
    • Third Down conversions were 33% for the game. But we only had nine third down plays.
    The Bad…
    • Three turnovers.
    • Despite limiting the explosive plays, Nebraska held an edge in overall success rate. And the yards per play of 5.49 is still more than a good defense should permit.
    Yeah, in addition to "missed tackles" and some of the "penalties", the "turnovers" and "dropped passes" need to get eliminated.
