PSU lost to Illinois in the most inept display of OT offense ever



Most of the other games were boring. Cincy and Oregon looked like poo poo for 3 quarters but eventually pulled away.

OU needed this wacky play to beat Kansas

very comfortable game for the gophers. glad they actually showed up in the second half for a change! someone really needs to figure out why the gently caress PJ starts flailing the second the clock hits 2:00 left in the half though, itís really obnoxious and eventually someoneís going to pants us when he does it

I can only assume Indiana saw the 9OT and decided to spare us the usual "Competitive for 3 quarters then collapse in the fourth" so anyone watching could go ahead and do something else.

I guess it was right to have Iowa State be the favorite in this game. I firmly believed the Clones would lose this one up until they kneeled it out, this is the kind of game we usually lose.

Campbell wins one against a good D, which is usually kryptonite for his teams. They were able to mix it up just enough to win. Clones still in the hunt for the Big 12 CG. Need to win probably every game but OU to make it. Theyíd still need help in that scenario, but I think Baylor and OSU will drop at least one more too.

Hard to get too mad about a ridiculous game like that. The college OT rules didn't need that change whatsoever though, it's a big step down

No expectations for the rest of the year so no stress at least. Going to lose by 30+ next week, just try to knock off rutgers or maryland and go to the pinstripe bowl or whatever. How quickly a season swings

Absolutely shameful coaching display in every respect today, just absolute trash up and down. Also pretty much threw the rest of the season away starting a clearly still very hurt Clifford and then letting him take shots all game long. Team came out completely flat and there were pretty much zero defensive adjustments whatsoever after admitting 'yeah we didn't expect them to use 7 olinemen.' Can't run block whatsoever and Yurcich called an abysmal game. Definitely the worst loss of Franklin's tenure and probably one of the worst in program history, as funny as the game itself was. This is the first time I find myself thinking that if Franklin wants to up and leave for USC or LSU that, well, I wouldn't feel near as bad about it.

According to Vegas it wasn't an upset, Oklahoma State covered ISU -7. I don't really get that line either other than just not believing Oklahoma State was actually good, which I was pretty much on board with.

This is the first time I find myself thinking that if Franklin wants to up and leave for USC or LSU that, well, I wouldn't feel near as bad about it.

Low key, is his seat hot if itís 8-4 this year? He had to throw Ciarocca to the wolves last year and thatís really telling to me. I watched every second of that idiot game and came away with the belief that itís going to take a lot more than just coaching improvements to fix things.

If youíre missing Bielema using extra linemen and basing an entire game around stretch and weird counter looks, then I just assume you havenít watched football in two decades. Like, thatís a detail that the Bamas of the world have a million guys in the back rooms looking for, just like at OSU or Oklahoma. Itís a failure of your scouting if you didnít know it and a failure of your game plan that you didnít have a look and a failure of adjustment that they gashed you and you tried nothing.

That brings me to Yurcich, who I think is a solid play design guy who is a very average play caller. Without a Gundy or Day/Wilson to curb him, he just doesnít know how to run the ball meaningfully and starts to get reliant on shot plays for yardage because he sees himself as a home run guy and gets desperate when heís behind schedule. Penn State has a terrible constraint game right now because theyíre zero threat in the flat or running to the edge which means I can sit in any number of sky/max looks that ignore the flats. It makes you look great when itís working, but it also means your offensive focus is just a cone shape away from the quarterback like youíre playing Madden 06. Itís also why Moorheadís vertical system was so effectiveóhe understood that shot plays freed up underneath space in the screen and flat game for actual meaningful yardage as opposed to just seeing it as opening thr LOS broadly. If a team can block the middle, Mike will push the ball downfield, ignoring that you could just jam inside gaps and drop 6-7 if you never have to worry about a check down.

Oh, and Pry remains the most overrated DC in college football short of Grantham. Dude just runs aggro pressure sets and gambles on his rotations but canít figure out a run fit that works against a jumbo set within literally 5 hours of game time. Yeah, it turns out that weak side and overload happy blitzes where youíre playing man gets you hosed a lot again stretch and counter when you can be keyed. Greg Schiano learned that lesson a few times.

Iím going to enjoy Stroud putting 50 on this team next week. I never want to hear a loving word about Franklin getting them over the hump when his greatest accomplishment is essentially a result of tiebreaker rules and deep ball luck. I would hope they donít trot Clifford out there because I donít know that he survives that game, but Franklin essentially proved today heís perfectly willing to gamble on that.



Oh also Ohio state is speedrunning 2014 at this point. I canít remember the last time that I just straight canít point to a tendency thatís going to stop the offense. They can run any scheme or any situational. The defense gets better with reps because theyíre young and got zero burn in the truncated schedule last year behind the starters. I donít know that they have the horses for Georgia yet, but I also just donít know how a Michigan team that plays with its food and a one dimensional Sparty get in the way here and probably end up favored against any big 12/acc/pac 12 team by 10+ at current trend. gently caress Urban I hope we never call QB power in a tight game again.

Yeah. Especially in this new fangled day and age where you can watch a coaches entire coaching resume right off of Youtube. I mean, I know teams like UGA and Alabama have these huge operations in terms of support staff, but "how does he line up his players" seems like a pretty regular thing to scout. It isn't some esotoric stuff that took years to figure out, like someone figuring out that foot positioning is how you can tell if Big Ben was going to run or pass. This was just a breakdown of basic information gathering.
