    I'm in depression mode realizing that the regular season is halfway over. Football season just goes way too fast.

    It's been a hell of a season though. Most fun I've had watching an OSU team in awhile.

    Pedsters seem to check a lot of these boxes, but I haven't watched a lot of them this year so not sure how much of their wins have been a mirage.

    So you're saying Rutgers is last in the nation in scoring offense?

    They got outgained by Buffalo and almost lost to Pitt at home. Their defense is legit but they'll struggle to find much balance against us on offense.

    Yeah, Clifford isn’t nearly the playmaker at QB that McSorley was. Once you take away the run, they aren’t left with a whole lot. It’s important to shut the quick slants/outs game down EARLY as I don’t think throwing down the field or running the ball will get the job done.

    Basically it... they aren't anything special other than Hamler.

    They just might come into OSU undefeated though.

    NW isn't the same team as it was last year. This could be another blow out. The bye week came at a great time for some of our players to rest and heal up for a potentially challenging last part of the season. The fact that its another night game will give the nation another chance to see what may very well be the best team in the nation.

    I love having a bye after MSU and then again after Wisconsin. The two most physical teams on the schedule and we have a chance to heal up after.

    Then we get two push overs before PSU/scUM.

    The scheduling gods balanced the books in '19 for the fuck job OSU took in '16.
