    Could be West Virginia

    or Texas.

    Hell, I'd be fine with "The Worst 7-0 team in NCAA history"

    I think we need to give Indiana and coach Wilson some credit, too. Indiana got a heck of a coach.

    Enough of the insults. I saw a guy stop playing on a play that wasn't over. We have a coach that preaches plus two. I didn't see it on a crucial play of the game. That's all.

    Btw, in my world I'm able to process different views even though I may not agree with them. Sometimes the other view even changes mine.

    1) Pressure in this type of offense is not always good. That is the point of the scheme.

    2) The team 'decompressed' every time a significant lead was built...they expected the old Indiana and saw the new Indiana. Urban isn't praising Kevin Wilson to be nice...the guy is a rising star and we saw that Saturday. Expect Bloody Tuesday to be especially bloody...

    3) The injuries are more significant than most are Nathan Williams is huge, no Bino is huge, Simon has zero business playing right now but will slice anyone telling him to sit.

    4) If Devin Smith catches the 'fo sho' TDs...this is not even close.

    That 2nd TD he did catch was all him, he turned a medium length gain into a spectacular catch and run. It probably doesn't happen against anyone other than Indiana, but it was awesome to see none the less.

    I hope someone comes in and hires Kevin Wilson away from Indiana or that program might develop into a pain in the ass in a few years.

    :lol: They'd be going up against the 2002 team on ESPN.

    Ok, just got back from the game and had great seats on the 50 (thanks dad) and here are my observations.

    Noah Spence needs to play more. He may not have been getting the sacks but he was the ONLY one harassing the QB at the end of the game.

    Our linebackers outside of Shazier, suck. sorry but they suck.. it was dreadful.

    Our ENTIRE team, WRs, Runningbacks, Linebackers, DBs need to spend all of their free time with a Jugs machine this offseason.

    The boren experiment did not go well. Saw Urban chewing him out on the sideline, very animated.

    I dont like blaiming officiating but that was absolutely atrocious. I was there for Illinois in 09 and this was worse.

    Not one holding call all game, seriously? Hankins, Simon, and spence were being molested on a regular basis. Every single time they went to review the crowd knew we were screwed because it came back against us EVERY time. the personal foul in the secondary was a joke he hit a reciever trying to catch a ball how is that a personal foul? didnt see what happened for the other foul on that play because they didnt show it on the big screen.

    by the end large parts of the crowd were just openly booing the officials everytime they were front and center.

    and finally new conspiracy theory lol... did they spray that field with lubricant or something??? neither team could hold onto the ball, braxton REPEATEDLY slipped when cutting just seemed like something was causing everything to be far more slippery that I would have expected for what was a pretty nice day.

    I would add to #4 that if our DBs caught the 'fo sho' INT's that they should have had (and they could have had a bundle), this is not a close game. I would say that if those DB's had had that bundle, we wouldn't be hearing the gnashing of teeth that we are currently over the current defensive coaching staff's future.
  12. youra6

    youra6 It's not over 9000

    He dropped two, but he also had 2 TD catches as well. So he could of have had 4 total

    i sure don't. f that. quality depth of talent and coaching is what sets the SEC apart. we need MORE quality coaches in the BiG, not less.

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    Lack of tackling technique aside, it almost seems like there's two defensive teams out there. Not clear which part of the defense is lacking, but it sure appears that there's two philosophies at work. Can there be two coaches teaching different ways to go about defense? Fickel and Whithers are co-coaches, but I do not see one cohesive unit.

    There's no way that Indiana out-personnels us. None. Yet it appeared time and time again that their D person was out-doing (is that a word?) their OSU counterpart. No push from the D-line, it seemed like everyone was being double-teamed. Yet no penetration from the 'backers in the gaps. OSU has always been known for corners, yet OSU is giving up more yards in the air than anyone (10th in the B10 anyone?). Let's go back to man-to-man, cover-two, and scrap this zone stuff. Hit the seam and he's gone a la Wynn (and I'm certain he enjoyed that play!). This bend but don't break crap went out with the old Browns defenses of the 70's. But when you break, what's that about 70 points given up in the last two games, it's time to rethink things.

    Anticipate changes to the defensive coaches over the winter.......
