He finds each open receiver (plenty, thanks to the playcalling) entirely too late. Every person who watches Penn State that I know notices this trend. Being immobile, late on throws, not throwing it away, and not seeing open men leads to serious problems.
I agree that Morelli doesnt look all that sharp and seems to get rattled. But give some credit to Michigan's defense last night. Michigan's defense is top notch this year. They have put pressure on everyone they have played and pretty much shut down the run game.

Granted, the two sacks back to back in the second quarter were his fault. It happened right in front of us in the north end. should've chucked it OB. Apart from that, He had little to no chance.

Great play calling, huh? Still very few routes run to the middle of the field. Only one ball thrown to the TE, which, of course was an out pattern. It took the staff until 3 minutes to go in the game to combat the UM pass rush with a screen. suprise!!-it went for a TD. We should have screened them to death until they stopped it, that would have bought the passing game a bit more time.

Is Morelli blameless? certainly not. But you can't recruit a kid, sit him on the bench for two years, and expect him to be the finished product. AM was rated the #2 QB prospect in America (AHEAD of Henne) the year we got him. A lot of people besides us wanted him. But you need a competent staff to develop talent, even of his calibre. Clearly we can no longer do this at QB and Oline.

I've followed PSU since before their two MNC's. I was and remain an admirer of JVP. He also is an 80 year old man who is no longer at the top of his profession. Not even close. Like a lot of people his age, he is stubborn and slow to adapt to new ideas and concepts, even if it would help his cause. Time to step aside and find a new way to help the program he professes to love.

I just used my magical analytical skills to realize that Michigan would have to win nov. 18th for that to be possible at all.

and thats just not gonna happen.

Right now OSU is the better overall team. If Michigan's offense gets healthy (which they should) before OSU I wouldnt feel so confident if I were you. If both teams are healthy its going to come down to who gets the most breaks. Michigan's defense has knocked 4 different QB's out of the game this year. Troy Smith will get some plays on Michigan, but he is going to take some hits also. Should be a great game.

I'm on the same page as GotPhilk though. Even if Michigan loses to OSU. Michigan will be 11-1 and probably on their way to the Rose Bowl. I will take that.

GO BLUE!

It's exciting to have some tough D back at the Big House. It's been a while. We've had some decent teams, but since that National Championship team, we haven't had that solid all around D. Good players, but overall a little weak.

I'm excited to see what happens.

That is the major difference between the OSU and UM programs and fan bases right now. Neither tOSU or their fans will be content to lose "The Game" and go to the Rose Bowl. During the John Cooper era, I'm sure this wasn't the case.

Nevertheless, it looks like it's going to be a great game. UM has played very well and their defense is tough. However, the key to this game is Jim Tressel. He is just plain and simple a better coach than Lloyd Carr. And it doesn't hurt that "The Game" is being played in Cowtown, err I mean Columbus.

Best of luck to both teams.....uh what am I saying????!!!!!...Ann Arbor is a whore!

Beat Blue!

Go Bucks!!!!

The way the Trojans look this year and considering the remaining scheduling Oregon, CAL, Notre Dame and UCLA, they'll be lucky to make it to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego....this team just doesn't seem to WANT to win..the catchers don't catch, the runners don't run, the throwers can't throw and the offensive coach is offensive...predictable play calling....

Well, not really. Its a difference about how we went into this season. OSU was picked to contend for the national title from the get go. Michigan was ranked 18th coming off a 7-5 down year. I dont think anyone including the diehards thought we would be undefeated and playing in a game to go to the title game. So yeah, if Michigan goes 11-1 to the Rose Bowl after last year it would be a great year. I like Michigans chances though. For one simple reason. I guarantee you VERY few people will pick Michigan to beat OSU. Michigan almost always plays well against OSU when they are the underdog. Defense wins championships and Michigan's is great this year. I think its actually a little better than the 97 defense. The 97 defense just shut people down. This defense shuts them down and punishes them.

Next year Michigan is going to be top 5 going in most likely. So next year everyone is going to be expecting them to contend.

Regarding coaching. Tressel (although ethically corrupt )is a better x and o's guys than Lloyd. The x factor this year though is Michigan has a new offensive and defensive coordinator. Ron English is a great coach, the NFL wanted him. So I think thats an even match up. I will conceed you probably have the advantage with the offensive coaching though.

Its going to be a great game. The hype is going to be ridiculous.

Just beat Notre Dame. For one simple reason. To shut Lou Holtz up. Every single weekend he keeps hyping that ND will play for the national title this year. Not going to happen.
