Now, let me do you one better.
The season continues to fly by at supersonic speeds, even if certain games plod by like the mascot of Ohio State’s next opponent. Ohio State’s 26-6 win at Michigan State wasn’t a beauty contest but I think it’s gorgeous to get a 100-yard rusher against the country’s top run defense and regardless of how inept the Spartans…
