    I'm not going to argue with you... Just sharing my perspective. In the same fashion that I wasn't ready to put JT in the Heisman discussion for the last four wins, I'm not ready to fire Meyer for a poor performance in a win.

    No one certainly not me expected J,T, to continue his pace vs P.S. but when it counted he rose to the occasion,kid is special.

    There are 11 freshmen and sophmores starting on this team. Give me one, just one team in the country that is starting that many underclassmen and having the success we are this year. 30 wins mean nothing??? Are you kidding??? Would you rather be 8-4 or playing like Michigan right now??? Meyer has one year when his team was eligible for the conference championship and bowl game. Yes, we lost but we made it to a BCS bowl game with a defense that was ranked 111th in passing. I am all for being critical on our staff when things don't go well but to be that critical on Meyer is overboard. Especially, when the the guy has signed 3 top 5 classes and these players are still maturing.

    1. I am the one that keeps saying to stop with all the JT is better than Braxton discussion and it is a long season.......wait and see approach.

    2. Meyer is here to win championships, not lose to Virginia Tech at home and struggle with a team like Penn State that may not go to a bowl. He is making a ton of money just to beat the teams he has more talent than.

    How about he beat some teams with like talent............until that happens lets just lower our expectations. He is not getting it done IMO.

    If this guy doesn't make 1st team All Big Ten that's a crime in it self. I know before yesterday we punted 13 times on the season and 9 of those punts were at or inside the 11 yard line.

    When he actually wins a game that matters at Ohio State, I will stop being critical. Those 30 wins are against teams we have more talent than.

    Everyone needs to stop drinking the kool aid........in 2 weeks it will be interesting to see all of your opinions. This is not just about last night, this is about the simple fact we are not an elite team and we need stop acting like we deserve to be in the playoff discussion. We are AVERAGE at best.

    I don't want to hear we are young. You say we recruited 3 top 5 classes well where is the development? We should be reloading not rebuilding.

    Why did we have a 111th pass defense? You think that is not on the staff?

    Stop with the excuses and rationalizing.

    So by your logic Meyer should be 33-0 because we pay him a lot of money. I agree he needs to win a big game at Ohio State but man the expectations on this guy were out of this world before he coached a game at Ohio State. Meyer needs at least 3-4 seasons to get his guys in his system and develop. Not just Meyer but any coach that goes to a program. I don't feel that this team is an elite team but do I think they are making strides in that direction.



    You say we recruited 3 top 5 classes well where is the development? We should be reloading not rebuilding

    Did you watch the defense last night??? Or better yet what JT Barrett has done this season?? Majority of those guys on the field last night were recruited by Meyer. Each game they continue to get better.

    Stop with the excuses and rationalizing

    Rationalize??? Feel free to do the same.

    Again, lets see what everyone thinks after the game in East Lansing............

    Will everyone be thinking about all those 30 wins against crappy ass teams?

    Does anyone think we can beat an SEC team? Go watch that league. 2 different levels of football being played IMO and it is not even close.

    What logic? He is here to win championships. Michigan State has had lower rated recruiting classes but is obviously the class of the Big Ten for the second straight year, how can that be, Ohio State has had 3 top 5 classes!

    Its called coaching and player development........

    I am not going to apologize for thinking we need to be winning league titles in probably the weakest power 5 conference...............I guess my expectations are to damn high.

    Nah man, I’m with ya. But if we beat MSU, I think we will be BigTen champs. With that said, making the playoff would be disastrous! We are just not ready to compete with elite teams.

    We will not make the Playoff.......I don't think the Committee would do that with a one loss Oregon, undefeated FSU, and two SEC West teams ahead if us if we can beat MSU

    With the struggles we've had in the red zone and the FG kicking game, I thought we had no shot after we went to OT.

    Im just happy it isn't the train wreck that could have been when Miller went down. Not sure what that wildcat stuff was all about. Im hoping it was because JT was gimpy. I think they are a little bit better than average at best. I do think they are improving as the season moves on. It is always hard to win on the road, then add in the night atmosphere. I say a GOOD road win. Heck even Bama won by 1pt at lowly Ark.
