    Interesting that OJ got pulled for Moss and then Moss gets abused for a TD. Who starts Saturday against the rodents?

    OJ has been playing at a all- big ten level the majority of the season, they pulled The same crap with Hankins this year as well, coaches have a unhealthy crush on Moss

    This.
    Hankins got beat on good coverage and got his ass chewed. Moss got beat on good coverage and a handshake.
    I'm good with both but amazing the different coachs reactions.

    I think OJ has been our best CB this year. Everyone has a bad game. OJ should start

    From what I can tell, Parker will pull a corner if he gets beat deep in cover 4. Our whole defense is predicated around making you earn it. Hankins got beat by Bell, OJ got beat by Cephus.

    If OJ doesn't start, I'll be pretty confused. Other guys in other positions have made quite a few mistakes and nothing happens. OJ has been great all year. Moss got beat on the next play.

    A lot of guys can beat by a good throw and catch. Seems like Phil looks the other way at times depending on situation and who is involved.

    Agree and I’d go so far as to say the best CB by a wide margin. It’s just baffling to see Moss in there for Ojemudia.

    I agree with this. It was odd that they pulled OJ and then Moss gets beat deep the very next play, I think Moss starts.

    Moss is a very good athlete with a high upside. I'm just wondering if he might not make a better safety.

    Ridiculous if OJ does not start. It was one play and last time I checked we gave up 300 yards rushing. There should have been at least one LB pulled too then.

    I didn't think OJ deserved to stay in, so I was happy he was benched.

    It's just too bad our replacement also got it handed to him.

    Corners get burned sometimes, it seems like they can't wait to start Moss & look for any reason to get him in the game almost like a fetish.

    Seems like a double standard. Miss a tackle or give up a long pass and taken out.
    Not in position for the tackle (Doyle) or not fast enough to keep up its ok.

    Agreed. Still disappointed in no Brents. His injury must of really set him back.

    It does seem like the coaches are eager to put Moss in any chance they get. Treated Shada the same way & he was probably the worst starting corner in the KF era.

    I'm never psyched about Moss going in and I am aware that OJ has played pretty darn good, but not yesterday.. there's no excuse for him to lose contain on that sweep they ran in for a TD. OJ just wasn't on his game.

    Did any of you complainers even consider that oJ may have injury?? He clearly wasn’t playing well. Was watching QB instead of WR and got beat.

    Ditto.
    Still think Moss could be a NFL quality Tanner Miller type safety if he could get physical. Semi freak skill level.

    I agree with all of you. Phil Parker knows nothing about coaching, evaluating and developing defensive backs

    Remember when Moss had the two interceptions last year at Minneapolis?

    Then a true freshman, Riley Moss was thrown into the fire for a Week 5 game at Minnesota. He grabbed two interceptions in his starting debut.

    I'm not even saying Moss is bad, but what about DJ Johnson & Brents I like both of their games over Moss

    OJ was quoted in the DMR last week saying the plan was to stack the box to stop the run and make Coan beat them with his arm because they thought he was a good quarterback but not a great quarterback. I would imagine those comments made their way back to the Wisconsin football team. OJ was flagged for PI in the end zone, burned on the big play already mentioned, and got beat on a few other plays as well throughout the game (although he was throwing his hands up demonstrably towards his teammates like it was their fault on the coverage or something). First off, the plan to stack the box worked to the tune of Wisconsin rushing for 300 yards and I wonder if Big Game Phil pulled OJ because OJ was talking a big game in the week of but then beat in some critical spots. KF is so much like Bellichik in that u say nothing during the week to make its way to the other teams bulletin board - this may have had something to do with that coaching decision.

    Yeah he is a really shitty coach. What..20 plus defensive backs in the NFL?

    “He did a fantastic job of developing me and all the other corners that came through,” Jackson said. “He’s a tough-minded coach. He’s going to push you each and every day. He’s never going to let you sit back and be complacent. That’s something that I took pride in, coming out every day and just trying to perfect my craft and be the best I could be.”

    Herb Grigsby, Jake Christensen...

    Anthony Gair didn’t start forever then when he did the defense was much better.

    I never said he was a shitty coach. He's just a tool aand a hot head. If it motivates the players then whatever, but it was detrimental against Wisconsin this weekend.

    I think it was a bad game all around for OJ. He also blew the play against the Jet sweep where Wisky scored. The Safety Koerner(sp?) i think it was read it all the way, got blocked and OJ completely missed the read and the tackle.

    Oh well. Mistakes happen all over the field. Onto the next game.

    Moss got slapped around by Cephus. They are stupid if they don't play OJ and were stupid for pulling him.

    O.J. went to the med tent and later went back to the locker room with med staff. I was at the game and saw this happen. Not sure if it was discussed during the broadcast or in interviews after the game. He definitely was not pulled due to performance.

    I doubt that. Remember when Hankins got the rath of Phil on him, and got pulled. Everyone thought Moss might replace him the next week, but no, and Hankins played well. I'd bet you'll see #11 out there on Saturday.
