    For a guy like CJ Devin Smith was a god send... He only had to take 2-3 shots down field a game because he knew EVERY. SINGLE. ONE OF THEM would be caught. Now CJ may throw 3 deep a game but more than likely he's going 0-3.

    This will sound weird because I know nothing of the kid but I don't think we will have that sort of deep threat again until Torrance Gibson takes the field (provided he stays). It's just a logical guess but at 6'4" 200+ pounds and speed to burn he can go up over top of anyone he's going to face in college. Too bad he didn't have his priorities straight (at least from what we read) because I do think he's talented enough to see the field but he just has to do the little things first to get on the field.

    I must confess that I was looking at the guide wrong, and the game was indeed shown here (and everyplace else as well). My bad.

    Must confess that I like San Antonio, and Dallas as well, as I've lived in both places. Texas grows on you..........have lived here more years than I care to think about. Keep in touch, Cinci!

    GO BUCKS!!!!

    You would think the 2011 season would've taught Buckeye fans a little humility. I know it did me. I used to be the stereotypical fan who screamed, yelled, and wore my disgust on my sleeves. I've changed a lot since then, because, seriously it does not effect my life one bit, so why should I let it affect my life? At least that's how I try to take it anymore. Am I perfect, no? But the sporting world has gotten to some unreasonable expectations and people take it too personally when their team isn't flawless.

    As I said right after the game, Craig Krenzel's play during 2002 probably wasn't much different than Cardale's. And it seems I'm right. He struggled against Cincinnati, unimpressive against Northwestern, took overtime to beat Illinois, and then there's Miami. The difference is, Krenzel didn't have presumably 2 other 90+ rated options if this were NCAA '16 (being that at the usual release date Braxton was still a QB), so we weren't trying to suggest what someone else could've done differently.

    It seems we focus on every little thing being perfect, rather than the big picture. If Cardale doesn't complete every pass, hitting the receiver in stride with the right touch, people will complain. It's silly. I'd still say Cardale is good enough to lead us to another championship if it comes to that. There's other players around him to make plays.
