Ohio State has played 8 quarters of football this year, and they have looked incredibly mediocre in 6 of those 8 quarters. Yah, Indiana is turning that program around, and it was on the road, but losing at the half to them as the #2 team in the country is NOT a good look even though they ended up winning by about 3 touchdowns. Losing by multiple scores AT HOME to an Oklahoma team you demolished last year is really not good. I think Penn State beats them at the Shoe, and with Michigan playing them in Ann Arbor if Michigan can't beat them this year they'll probably NEVER beat them again! They have tough road games at Nebraska & Iowa too. I could see this team finishing with a 9-3, 8-4, 3rd place finish in the division type season.

Barrett is awful. He can't throw the ball. Why they didn't get a new QB after that loss to Clemson, I can't figure out.

Look...i know EMU isn't the cupcake of years' past, but come on...
If Rutgers finishes with another losing season, Chris Ash, despite being in his second season, needs to be fired. Ash to ashes, dust to dust, is not getting the job done. I would also advise Rutgers to replace athletic director Patrick E. Hobbs with someone who knows athletics.

Is Clemson's defense that good? I think they're very good.. But I think Auburn's offense was poor.

Is Clemson's offense that bad? I saw Bryant running too much at times for short gains. The running game was pretty bad most of the night. Bryant seemed.. Off-kilter much of the night. He made some good throws, but made some pretty bad ones, too. And.. Give it to Auburn.. They don't have a slouch defense.

Turnovers by the Clemson offense.. Bryant didn't throw any picks, but 2 fumbles.

Next week should be interesting. Louisville is going to put some points up. I doubt it turns into a shootout.. I don't see them putting 30+ up on Clemson.. But, can Clemson's offense match them?
Clemson's offense was off against Auburn indeed. Bryant left the game in the first half with an injury, then came back in the second half. If Bryant was not injured, offense would have found rhythm and escalate the win to a landslide.

If Clemson's defense can shut down Lamar Jackson, a Heisman Trophy winner for doing nothing, and Kelly Bryant has a field day, the Clemson at Louisville game should be fun.

Why is Gus Malzahn not getting the job done at Auburn? Regardless who Auburn's quarterback is, Auburn needs to be playing better, specifically in the Southeastern Conference.

I have no idea what you're talking about. J.T. Barrett is Ohio State's quarterback.

I have no idea why you are connecting J. T. Barrett to Auburn when the reference is to Woody Barrett.

I made a comment about Barrett, clearly referring to the Buckeyes' QB. I have no idea why you quoted me and mentioned Auburn.

You mentioned a loss to Clemson. Auburn lost to Clemson yesterday.

If you mean Ohio State's loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl, then that would be relevant.
