    Key Matchups
    Oklahoma State’s Wide Receivers vs. Michigan State’s Defensive Backs
    Adams has the speed to keep up with Blackmon, but he doesn’t have too much help in the secondary. Trenton Robinson is a great strong safety, but MSU doesn’t have great depth in the secondary where they will most likely need to have 5,6, or 7 defensive backs on the field most of the game. OSU has some good receivers besides Blackmon, but if the Spartans can slow him down, OSU may be in trouble.

    Michigan State’s Run Game vs. Oklahoma State’s front 7
    Edwin Baker won the Heisman trophy and he did that vs. defenses much more talented than the one he is facing this week. It’s no secret the OSU front 7 is very weak. OSU has the top linebacker in the nation in Caleb Lavey who has 136 tackles, but he hasn’t faced anyone like Edwin Baker. The entire D-Line is weak and MSU’s offensive line should be able to impose their will. If MSU takes advantage of this, you may see OK State in the 4-4 for much of the game.

    Good luck Wyrmreaver looks like a really close game. I might need to use some of the strategy is used vs. Max to pull out a win in New Orleans.

    I mean he can throw the ball too. But I can't expect you to throw 5 picks again. The offense will be a little different next year, probably a mix of my Wyoming PB and an Oregon/Clemson PB.

    You sound like you know what you're going to do to stop it, and my guess is blitz and blitz a lot. Maybe I just have to keep you on your toes each time we play, because we'll have even teams next season.

    I hope so! even teams and homefield for me is what im counting on. but yea... I am firing all remaining Leach staff and abandoning my quasi-air raid offense. No more no huddle for me, and I doubt I ever approach 50 attempts in a game again! anyway, enough saltiness from me. GL to both you

    Id be happy to see you in a 4-4 most if the game..... Anyone who's played me will tell you that i pass plenty from TE/FB or 2 TE sets and run plenty from 3 wide sets so running 4-4 against my base look will likely give my TE favorable matchups.

    Bucs threw it a ton and i couldn't stop him, so ill have to do something different vs you

    I couldn't stop Bucs either. One reason is I noticed your front 7 is great, but your secondary is pretty terrible (my entire defense is terrible). So going 4 and 5 wide should keep some of your best players off the field.

    Oklahoma State ends up winning the National Title 54-28 or something like that. I got to go to sleep so no writeup. Blackmon was player of the game with 237 yards and 3 scores to set the ncaa record for most TD receptions in a season. He will be missed as he is a lock to declare for the NFL draft.

    Yeah..... I couldn't stop the cowboys. I tried zone, man, blitz from both, cover 1, robber, cover 2, cover 3, quarters...... Nothing could consistently stop him. Example, early in the 2nd qtr it was 38-14 even though i had no turnover to his 2..... Early i had 2 drives stall when my all American TE dropped 3rd down passes. Without those i imagine it would have been a closer game, more of a shootout.
