Dobbins should be at the Heisman before Taylor. The former has 7.0 per carry vs. the latter’s 6.3. Dobbins is only 174 yards behind Taylor for the conference lead and has 50 fewer carries. Also, he hasn’t had a second half snap in the last four games. Head to head this year, both had 20 c…

Spielman is a dramatically underused talent. Wan’Dale gets much more attention and is a talented player, but getting only 3.8 yards per carry. For context, Dobbins of OSU and Taylor of Wisconsin are getting 7.0 and 6.3 respectively.

Absolutely right. We had 35,000 empty seats for a game last year, per stats printed in the OWH. Apparently not everyone feels it is their duty to attend—just buy tix. Let the streak die a natural death and move forward.

I don't blame AM for anything, as he seems to be giving his best effort as a leader, player and responsible citizen. His knowledge, skills and abilities are what they are. I don't think Verduzco has helped AM develop much or simplified the game for him, but that's just conjecture. I think…

I can only hope that Frost is proclaiming staff continuity to the media for messaging sake, but privately telling his underperforming assistants that they risk being replaced if they don't get better outcomes (recruitment, development, etc).

Moos is true to form as a poor steward of resources, and the extension was largely superfluous (Frost won’t leave NU if he turns this around and we won’t want him that long if he doesn’t). I credit NU with trying to make a PR splash but it was rendered moot in the face of another double d…

Uh, NU defense held up admirably, sure tackling, rarely out of position? You do know that Wisconsin rushed for 320 yards, right? And in a game that they didn’t seem interested in playing?

FDG

I agree with Tom that talent isn’t the only thing this defense lacks. Frost will fail if he keeps this staff intact as he has said he intends to do. If Frost fails, NU fails.

Mills has one excellent game against a good team—albeit one that was emotionally flat and clearly better earlier in the season—and he speaks to the media as if he’s the second coming of Jim Brown.
