    He caught the ball. That image has been replayed many times. I'd rather not see that again for any of our guys, but it's got to be something on their minds in situations like that. Does a QB see that potential and try not to throw it? And will a good receiver try to make the catch and not worry about the consequences?

    So that we remember why we're thumping them 56 to 0 ... "the clock is stopped"

    An article on the comeback win at Minny in '89. The 31-point record comeback for 1-A stood until Sparty came back from 38-3 against NW'ern last year, but if you read BP's game preview on the home page, you already knew that. :wink2:

    One other tidbit - the '84 Maryland comeback was led by QB Frank Reich, who also engineered the NFL record 32-point comeback for Buffalo in the playoffs against Houston.

    Ohio State not overlooking Minnesota's weak defense

    COLUMBUS ? First-year University of Minnesota football coach Tim Brewster is convinced he still can field a competitive defense this year, but he knows the process would go much faster if he could raid Ohio State's roster.
    Perched at the top of Brewster's wish list is All-American linebacker James Laurinaitis, the Buckeyes' lone Minnesota-bred player.

    OSU hasn?t faced a defensive challenge yet in 2007
    Thursday, September 27, 2007
    By Todd Porter

    COLUMBUS Schoolyard bullies against lesser opponents, Ohio State?s offense has yet to be tested against someone capable of fighting back. That might be the reason why Jim Tressel is restrained in his praise of the Buckeyes? surprisingly prolific offense.

    On Saturday night at the Metrodome, OSU isn?t getting Washington, Northwestern or Akron?s little brother.

    Maybe their little sister.

    Take a chance, Buckeyes dare you
    JASON LLOYD, Morning Journal Writer

    COLUMBUS -- Apparently opponents haven't updated the scouting report on Ohio State's offense. Through the first four games, defenses continue to expose themselves to the deep ball, and Todd Boeckman continues to hit it.

    Boeckman and Brian Robiskie have hooked up for six plays of at least 25 yards this year, including at least one in every game. The longest was the 68-yard touchdown pass at Washington, but there have been plenty of others -- receptions of 41 and 28 yards against Youngstown State, a 39-yard touchdown against Akron and touchdown catches of 42 and 28 yards against Northwestern.

    Gophers' coach Brewster hoping Buckeyes will have big heads

    COLUMBUS (AP) - What's brewing today with the 2007 Ohio State Buckeyes ...
    BUCKEYE BUZZ: Ohio State coaches are chiding their players to not be overconfident when they play sad-sack Minnesota on Saturday night. But Golden Gophers coach Tim Brewster is trying to encourage it.
    "I've been in the National Football League for the past five years, and what I'm looking at (in Ohio State) looks like an AFC West team," Brewster said earlier this week. "They've got an outstanding collection of football players on their team. It's exactly what I'd expect the Ohio State football team to have."
    Brewster was the tight ends coach for the San Diego Chargers from 2002-2004 and the Denver Broncos from 2005-2006.The rookie college head coach - he hasn't been a head coach at any level since Central Catholic HS in Lafayette, Ind., in 1987-88 - said his team can pull off the upset but it must work hard all week and focus on the task at hand.
    "Like (former Chargers coach) Marty Schottenheimer told me, 'Winning is not hard - it's the willingness to prepare to win that's hard,"' Brewster said. "We're still teaching our kids about that process."

    Isn't Greg Frye the quarterback that had premature balding and looked like a 40-year-old out there?

    Seems pretty straightforward to me ...

    1. We're going through running backs like drummers for Spinal Tap.
    2. Our mobile, dual-threat 3rd team QB is suspended.
    3. Therefore, our 1st and 2nd team drop-back style, pure passing QBs have to play longer, and they'll have to pass more frequently to lighten the load for Mo Wells.
    4. This gameplan just might work anyway, since Minnesota has the nations worst pass defense.

    #4 is an understatement.

    Minnesota is allowing 407 yards per game passing (#119 in D1A) and 14 passing TDs for the year (#118 in D1A). They're a full 100-ypg worse than the #110 ranked passing defense in the NCAA. Really, all the teams in which Minnesota keeps company at the bottom, have been victimized by such offenses as Texas Tech, Southern Cal, Oklahoma, and Hawaii.

    Minnesota hasn't actually played any of those offenses, yet they're miraculously last in pass defense anyway. Minnesota is getting torched by Miami OH, Bowling Green, and FAU.

    They're 45% worse, statistically speaking, than Louisville!
