    Update on weather Friday

    So it looks like we can expect some wind Friday night. Weather.com is showing 20-30 MPH gusts.

    So that'll probably equate to a hurricane within JTS, right? Advantage: running game. Disadvantage: deep passes to Blackmon.

    Re: Update on weather Friday

    When OSU played TT it looked pretty windy there and it did not seem to have much effect.

    I think the overall scoring in our KU game was certainly held down by the wind. There are just certain passes you probably aren't going to throw in certain situations (with wind or without). I think that makes it easier for defensive coaches to shade away from those areas, and key on the more likely ones. That should help our cause.

    Let's put your post and the one before it together, because they both apply.

    There are certain passes that we probably aren't going to throw due to the wind.
    OSU played in similar wind conditions last week, and didn't miss a beat at all.

    The wind will hurt us and our less-gifted offense a lot more than it hurts OSU. That's my fear-induces version of reality.

    Re: Update on weather Friday

    I've read a couple places where people have said that Weeden throws a really tight spiral and really spins the ball off his hand, so the wind doesn't really affect his throws as much, especially when throwing directly into a headwind. This probably means the deep ball is still going to be in play for them no matter which direction they are headed.

    Can't say the same for Barnett, so we might be limited in our passing game when going into the wind.

    Also, accuweather shows winds during the day at SSW 17mph, gusts up to 37mph. Overnight it shows SSE 7mph, gusts to 13mph, so I guess it's just a matter of when that wind starts to die down.

    EDIT: looking at the hourly forecast, they show winds of 8mph SSE at 7pm, so it might not be all that breezy come kickoff.

    It was windy during the KU game, and our offense struggled to do much of anything. It was windy during the OSU/TT game, and OSU put up 66 points. Again, the only chance we have against OSU is to keep up with them. Id prefer perfect weather.

    C'mon now. Cyclonepride mixes up a nice batch of Kool-Aid and then you gotta put a turd in the punch bowl.

    I thought it was COD, and it was time to stab him in the back.

    Sorry about that. I get confused.

    When there is a 99.9% chance that tailgating is the highlight of the day I will go ahead and hope for good weather.

    Disadvantage: deep passes to Blackmon.
    Wind during their game in Lubbock was 25-35mph all game. It's not as big of a factor for QB's like Weeden.

    30 mph winds at JTS are like hurricane force winds. Winds affect JTS more than any other stadium in college football. The winds may have been blowing in Lubbock, but that is nothing like JTS.

    Exactly. We have different wind. Take that all you naysayers!

    So OSU will put up what 42 points as compared to 66, and we will put up 13, just like we did against KU? It has been proven that the wind is not good for our offense (see KU game), and it has also been proven that wind does not affect OSU as much as you would think (see TT game). Once again, the ONLY chance we have at beating OSU, is to keep up with them. We will need perfect weather for that.
