Go PSU! .... clearly, they're better than OSU, they beat them in a game right?
they might be (they have played very, very well ever since that game which is also the game they got their starting LBs back). I love McSorley, Barkley and Gesicki (Urban wanted Gesicki badly). I give PSU all the credit. The committee may look at that game with a bit of context as OSU was playing its second consecutive road Night game in a hostile atmosphere vs a second consecutive opponent coming off of a bye week. They had a brutal schedule to get through 11-1 with 44 freshmen and 16 new starters. I will be happy if Bucks get in but didn't expect it this year at all. We were thinking 3 losses looking at the schedule and rebuild. They are a year ahead of schedule - truly amazing accomplishment.
Buckeye defense is very fast and aggressive ... people think of Urban and offense but this team is spearheaded by its D. The offense has been inconsistent due to inexperience. They have also dealt with weather games all year though and now that will be be a non-factor. In snow, rain, wind the offensive coaches tend to light the playbook on fire and make JT run it 35 times. We will likely see a difference in how the offense looks in the playoff with a month to prepare, no weather and the fast track they are built for.
