    Legit thought Ohio State might drop off with Urban gone. Nope.
    You guys are playing like this is some throw away game up in Rochester.

    I don’t think they’ll sustain this long-term without him. Still mostly Urban’s guys

    I really like this stat. It gives at least some indication about how the guys in the trenches are playing. We are faring better than I expected. I would love to see this stat additionally broken out into two sections: Differential on running plays and differential on passing plays.

    Agreed. Meyer will go down in history as one of the best coaches ever. Hard to match.

    Finally an impressive complete defensive performance. I was worried about how the D would hold up versus a good running team.

    I've also been concerned with the Gophs run game, but yesterday's performance helped dispel that. Illinois was the first team that didn't fully commit to stopping the run (committing extra D backs to TJ et al at times) and the Gophs were able to adjust.

    ...granted, it was Illinois which is turning out to be a dumpster fire.
