PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Good. Now we can channel our hate.
And start scheming up ways to stop Masoli and that offense.
F**K the Ducks! Bring it!
USC 18, Ohio State 15
Oregon 47, USC 20
Their ability to contain Oregon State all night has me trembling. As does their 9 point loss to Stanford.
You're forgetting their other common opponent
shhh, do not speak of such teams
i thought oregon state did an excellent job of tackling tonight. oregon's offense could simply not get going with those tenacious tacklers chasing them
so my favorite team vs. my second favorite team......let the fun begin...and go bucks!
this just reeks of a game that has to be slowed down to a crawl by controlling the clock and running the football. I don't think there's any way we can score with them otherwise. Gotta shorten the game.
What I want for Christmas: A polished Pryor that puts up a 250+ yard air game and 50+ yard run game. Offensive fireworks. A defense the "Quacks" have a hard time scoring against. And yes, another pocket full of Posey, this time a pass to the one and only.........The Legendary Terrelle Pryor.
Here's a reason to start the hate ...
Oregon has that cute little hand-'O' thingy that they do. Real states use both their arms. Let the "O ENVY" begin
// ours is bigger
OSU 26, Oregon 24
Seems a bit short-sided to cite that as some kinda come back. I've ended up seeing a few of these games through the year. Oregon is a very solid team and in some games, plays spectacular. Add in that Blount is back and they have a running game that will give us fits.
We're playing the better team, just better show up ourselves.
No doubt we are playing the better team, but OreSt's tackling was some of the poorest I've ever seen.
No way were dogs vs. the Ducks. Check the Vegas rankings. They have NO defense.
Well, i don't know a game this year where tressel wanted to match
point for point. He will simple drive all us all nuts with his slow
methodically run, run, run, punt.
I almost fell out of my chair last night. The hacks covering the game last night wasted no time telling the nation Ohio State was in trouble and Jesse Palmer of all people pointed out Ohio States ability to run the football as a problem for Oregon.
I've watched Oregon all year and from what I've observed:
1. They can't stop the run
2. Put pressure on Masoli and he's not very effective
3. They haven't done well with physical teams.
I've been critical of Tresselball and Pryorball at times this year, but I believe this game is tailor made for our physical ball control punch you in the face type of game we play at THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
SAY NO TO QUACK!!!!
My guess is it'll be a happy New year!
Ohio State 27
phew, good game to watch, i like oregon's offense, but aganist the best D Line they've faced? Our line tends to want to go above expectations in big games (USC, PSU). Our offense on the other hand, is up to Jim Tressel to let Pryor run the plays he was born to run.
4 out of 12 games the quacks have given up 30 + points.
There last 4 games
@ Stanford 7-2 (5-1) L 51-42
Arizona State 8-2 (6-1) W 44-21
@ Arizona 9-2 (7-1) W 44-41 OT
16 Oregon State 10-2 (8-1) W 37-33
A whole lot of defense!
After watching last night I have to agree. Oregon st. lost because of bad tackling and a lack of a physical defense. So far this year we have been great in handling this kind of attack. Rolle, Hines, Coleman, and Homan will be able to contain James and Blount and keep them from getting outside. Our D line is far better than Oregon St's.It also seems that we will find holes in their defense. Besides, we are lucky to play the team that manages to cough it up if they are looked at funny. I'll say 28-17, the good guys.
yeah, but i hear they're pretty good at punching you in the face too. Or at least one of them
Keep your helmet on at all times.
For some reason, I think a few more points will be scored than in this one:
Probably the most likley chance of us losing this game is if we come out in our scarlet jerseys (no throwbacks, please) and Oregon comes out wearing all the combinations shown in the photo.
Oh, and any team that lets the golf coach be their "uniform coordinator" is by definition, LAME. As in Lame Duck. TGIF.....
Here's your homework over Christmas Break:
1. Watch the Boise State vs Oregon game
2. Take notes
3. Turn notes into gameplan
4. Implement gameplan at practice
5. Practice, practice, practice
6. Don't let the players get fat and lazy over break
7. Get to Pasadena early and get acclimated
8. Release the hounds New Year's Day
So are we all in agreement that Tresselball might actually work in this situation?
You're 100% percent correct. We have to set the tone early, and run the ball down their throat. Our front 4 needs to control the los, and knock Masoli around.
Oregone has no "D". We all know that.
30 some days to get ready.
A healthy TP.
No In-n-Out burgers until after the game.
What the lose in a defense they more than make up for with a prolific offense.
I say OSU stacks the line and goes man coverage on Oregon's WRs.
Spitler needs to take a back seat this game. He's too slow. Going to need quick and agile LBs for this contest.
Face meet shovel.
Dear Coach Heacock,
Please no soft zone on January 1st.
The OSU Fan Base.
That was awful.
Does this trump it?
Which Duck's uniform do you want to stare at for 3 hours on January 1st?
Which one don't you want to stare at for 3 hours on January 1st?
A1 - Solid Green (helmet, shirt, pants)
A2 - Yellow. Anything but the yellow.
Absolutely. Our running game has to be clicking to win this game, we aren't going to score any other way. I honestly love Tressel ball when it works but it just never seems to work against top teams anymore. Teams that are really good on both sides of the ball (Florida, USC, LSU) crush us. That's why I'm not as worried about Oregon.
Good luck with that.
When I watched the game last night, I saw that zone read they ran with 2 RB's where they would fake one way and option the other. I thought hmm, we have 2 really good running backs and a QB that is pretty good. I wouldn't doubt that is a play they break out at some point with Pryor, not saying in the bowl game, but I can definitely see this team running a similar offense next year. I liked at the end of the year where they mixed up the I-formation with more of that shotgun, zone read look.
They will control the Line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. If they stack the box, I love the idea of having Dane, Pose, and Carter in single coverage.
I guess since we are ranked behind Oregon we will wear white? Anybody know?
what about when USC beat us, then Stanford beat USC, then Duke beat Stanford?
I see what I did there...
thats just plain cruel
The play where they ran the zone option read, and when the DE crashes on the QB, only for him to pitch to the WR who bubbled back is brilliant. We have the PERFECT personnel for something like that. I mean, thats a throw that T. Wash COULDN'T drop right?! Or Flash, Ray Ray, all of our WR are ridiculously fast. Well, expect Dane, he has great hands but MAC speed.
Are you even allowed to have a second-favorite team in college ball? I mean, maybe you could if the 2nd team was FCS, but FBS teams run into each other too often.
nope. not permissible
I heard T Wash is transferring.
I'm not sure how that works. We were ranked higher in 2007, we wore white. We were ranked lower in 2008 and wore scarlet. I'm not sure how this gets decided.
Actually against Florida and LSU the Buckeyes were ranked #1. I think the whole scarlet thing against LSU was because LSUs away jerseys are purple and their home jerseys are white. That's why OSU wore scarlet. So both teams wore their home jerseys that year.
i coulda swore we were ranked number 2 because of the way we got in to that game. oh well.
I'm not sure about that. As dumb as it may sound, for the National Championship games, the hotel in which the teams stayed at determined which color jerseys they would wear. No idea how it worked, but I'm fairly certain that's how it was chosen.
that makes perfect sense.
Either way, OSU got mushroom stamped for a second straight year.
Lets not re-live those days.
Let's hope next week's SI has the Quacker's on the cover. The jinx will be in place.
The higher ranked team gets its choice of what color to wear. Then the other team wears their lighter shades. In 2007 against UF, the team was #1 and chose to wear white because of a history of winning in the fiesta bowl in white. We wore scarlet the next year against LSU mainly because A. florida kicked our asses in our whites and B. just to change it up I think.
Article about that from LSU before that title game:
I actually think Tressel-Ball will erk and frustrate Oregon as much it frustrates us sometimes: Even if we keep the ball on the ground the whole game, Oregon will have a hard time stopping Boom, Saine and TP as potential ball carriers on every down- They couldn't stop Stanford when everyone in the stadium knew Toby Gerhart was the one player getting the ball on almost every down - Seriously, Gerhart personally accounted for 87 percent of Stanford's total offense in that game, and it certainly wasn't the blazing speed or creative play calling that that lead to the Cardinal putting up 51 on the Ducks that day.
(Yeah I know Gerhart's really good, but Cal, Ore St., Arizona and Wake Forrest could all stop Stanford and Oregon couldn't - even after the whole nation knew #7 was the back to watch.)
I'll try to watch the game in B&W.
There you have it.
*Correction: 1.) Watch the STANFORD versus Oregon game.
Stanford put up 51 points basically giving the Ball to one player the whole game - no crazy play calling, no super speed, just good fundamental play versus an defense that apparently spends more time putting together different uniform combinations, than learning to tackle.
I heard he dropped his transfer papers
Basically the Bucks will definitely need to up the offensive effort....the gameplan against PSU, Iowa, Michigan will not be enough against Oregon, but....If the Bucks can get good defensive line pressure on defense and slow down the zone read they will be A-OK....I'm very confident in JT's gameplanning especially after last year's Fiesta Bowl...he really brought it in that one and we were one Rob Rose catching an INT, Jenkins stopping them a half inch shorter, or an Anderson Russell tackle away from a win...He will be ready offensively, but this offense can probably only do so much---it's up to the defense to slow down the fast-paced Oregon offense and play at a pace we're comfortable with....JT's classics will be in full effect: No turnovers, field position, and time of possession will rule out if we can control the game's pace
That'll be the score with 3 minutes left, right before we pin them back deep and put it in the defense's hands. We all know what happens next . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
Colt McCoy plays for Oregon?
Now, Picture the Oregon D trying to blitz Pryor when they get desperate like they did against Arizona and Oregon State last night in the fourth quarter. Pryor will carve up a tired desperate last ditch blitzing defense.
I would say one thing that concerns me a bit is the up tempo nature of the Ducks offense. The OSU DEF has struggled to keep up vs. fast paced, "hurry up" offenses in the past.
If Oregon is capable of limiting personnel changes, and DEF scheming by the Buckeye defensive coordinators, the game could go badly for us. (The worst/best example of this that comes to mind is our loss at home to Illinois in '07.)
I have some concern too over what looks like a pretty solid kick off return unit for the Ducks - kick off coverage has been an area of weakness of late for the Buckeyes.
On the other side of the coin, what I really liked seeing last night was Masoli throw a costly pick (nearly a pick-6) early in the game, and put the ball on the ground a couple of times during the game - I think the Buckeyes can capitalize on those kind of mistakes better than the Beavers were able to.
Nope, just pointing out that in the last two really big games (SC and Texas), a narrow victory was right in our grasps, if we only got one last stop. And we didn't. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic.
Two common opponents, USC and Purdue, check out who won and lost.
Comments about the Oregon/Stanford game are interesting. as there is another
view of why Stanford won. Toby Gerhart didn't beat the Ducks, it was Andrew Luck and the mid - deep passing game. The Stanford QB was amazingly accurate. That stopped the Ducks from ganging up on the run and forced the Oregon secondary to play conservative and be late to the run game point of attack.
If Pryor can be accurate with 15+yd throws, the Buckeye offense will be successful. If not, Oregon will put 8-9 men in the box and stuff the run.
It was the same thing in the Civil War, Oregon State completed quite a few mid -deep passes with the Oregon State QB being very accurate. Oregon pressure started to effect him in the late stages of the game. Maybe Pryor's escapability becomes an asset.
Masoli puts it on the turf alot too. He gets to running around and has the ball exposed all the time. The D line will put more pressure on him than any D they've seen this year. He may have a few turnovers before it's all said and done which will play perfectly into the control the clock game plan.
only a smidge.
are you still intrested by the way?
What's the Payroll come out to these days?
Pete Carroll channels wisdom. Oregon won't be playing a two-deep safety set the way Iowa did. That means the downfield pass will be open. Canfield made hay off it and we need to do so as well.
The question is, can Pryor hit the receivers, and if he does, will the wideouts hold onto the ball? If we're sharp in the passing game, it's curtains for the Oregon D. You combine that with our outstanding rush attack and a terrific front seven on defense, and it's a recipe for victory.
But... if we can't make the downfield passing game go -- and we haven't in months -- this game is gonna be a rolling heart attack.
I know the one way to judge them is by common opponents, but I'd say it's a much different OSU team going to Pasadena than the team that lost to Purdue and USC. Pryor, though maybe the stats aren't overwhelming, has progressed to be a pretty good game manager and makes few mistakes. His passes are a lot more accurate as well. I would love Oregon to stack the box and let Posey be 1 on 1 down field. I'm not saying Ohio State is going to win this one in a laugher, but I defintely think Ohio State is going to win.
Haven't in months? Didn't they hit several long passes against Penn State?
you know, FIGURATIVE months.....
Get this man a press-pass STAT!
The payroll thing is interesting. That is why I decided to work for a private University, I don't have to worry about state budgets, and I can smooze my donor base as much as I like. Just to give you a hint, University of Spoiled Children applies to the coaches as well!!!!!!
Also, lets not forget that Purdue easily outgained Oregon in Eugene. If Oregon hadn't returned a fumble and an interception back for touchdowns, they would have lost that game.
And by 'smooze' he means penetrate.....full on penetration.....and then its back to fighting crime
Is that the same thing as "game" time vs "real" time?
Okay, yeah. The Franklin (County) song is much worse.
But at least it's not harming the children:
Or being used in advertisements:
Christ, Eugene, this is ridiculous. Just awful.
Hey, I work close by, mind if I get on said payroll?
Don't be surprised if after the bowl game USC gets some sort of sanction. They had a down year, so the NCAA will crack down on them now. That's what the NCAA does, waits till a team isn't the big draw one year and nails them. The did it to Florida State and Miami too. Had to wait till the were doin winning though.
or the AP will name them national champions
Man reality is really hard to find around here. USC exposed you guys as a slow Big 10 team, and the Rose Bowl will allow Oregon to do the same. Funny how all the fans that talk crap about Masoli wind up respecting him after he kicks that ass. Good luck tackling LaMichael too. ESPN is pretty much in unison saying you guys are going to lose, and I couldn't agree more. Oregon practices the three I's: intensity, integrity, and intelligence. You guys have a good regular season tradition followed by beat downs by the PAC-10 and Texas in bowl games. This will not change. The speed is too much, and Tressellball will wind up being abandoned as OSU is down 14-0 early! Pryor is going to make mistakes trying to be Masoli and wishing he had committed to Oregon instead of Ohio State. Your vaunted defense is going to be spread out and shredded. Look at what a mediocre spread team like Purdue did to you and shake in your boots contemplating the prospects of playing the Ducks. Pryor is a turnover machine, and has not progressed like everyone thought he was going to. Even OSU fans have to admit that as a fact. Good luck, you guys are gonna need it. GO DUCKS!!!
Yeah dumb ass cause USC put what 40 on us? Oh no it was 18. Obviously you haven't been looking for reality more than a day or so here. We are hyper critical of both TP and Tressel on a weekly basis. If you win, great job. If not oh well.
Look - it's trying to think!
When you have one of the top Defenses in the country (every year to boot) you really dont need a gimmic offense like the Ducks employ. Really, we only need to score 1 TD or a FG, because when you can't score on our D, you cant win. Period. Boise State was the best "D" you faced, and we all saw how that turned out. You couldn't even tackle the "quizz", what do you think your gonna do when you see our 200+ lb. backs with the same speed running the ball down your 11-girl unit you call a defenses' throat?
You may now return to your regularly scheduled weekend of deciding what uniform combination you will use to make your team at least look "fashionable" while they are sliding off tackles and putting on a clinic of how not to play defense. Good day.
Oregon has ESSSS-EEEEE-CEEEE SPEED. LOOK OUT!!!?!!?!?!
And no defense. So we should be able to max out at 26-28 points. Is that enough? I dunno.
SPEEEED? PS Masoli and LaGarrette Blount look like they run in quicksand. LaMichael James is a speed demon tho.
Yeah Oregon, watch out. ESECPN ain't even givin us a chance and we haven't won a bowl game in awhile. Hmmm, I wonder how that turned out for a team that beat a number 1 team in 06 that was so heavily favored.......
Redemption is a B!%#&!!!!
is this WLA again?
Their tackling was good....or. st.'s tackling was horrendous...that is why they lost the game...they couldnt bring anyone down
it is. make that no more than one a day.
Let me guess... You are a Cleveland fan?
in the past 5 games we're averaging over 257 rushing yards per game.
and punishable by death. Turn in your Buckeye pass buddy
Cleveland still HAS fans?
Against Top 25 defenses at that. Well, not scUM, they suck at life
Come to think of it, after last night, I think that scUM may have a better D than Oregon does
Nah. Michigan's defense is unquestionably terrible. Oregon's is suspect, but basically solid. They're just outside the top 25, against a better set of offenses than we've played, too (though, of course, I'd take our D any day of the week).
Just for the record, today on the trip back from parts unknown, I had a layover in the ATL...amazingly I was in full Buckeye gear...major douchebagery going on there...I thought I was in the Swamp...I am dousing myself in gasoline and setting myself on fire as we speak to get rid of the views that I saw..think of a million middle aged Billy Donovan looking guys walking around in gator polos... and washed up southern belles in gator print dresses...ugghhh...the looks I was getting made me think I had a horn growing out of my head...I wanted to scream "Jesus graduates soon...have fun while you still can assholes".
really wish i could've seen the OSU/OU game yesterday. i have some questions about oregon's D, AND I WANT ANSWERS.
i will say this though, both penn state and iowa have better defenses than oregon. my biggest interest is in how good the oregon LBs and safeties are, because if we go with the zone read or whatever, how we handle those dudes will go a long way toward determining our success. luckily our WRs know how to bock
my sister went to vanderbilt, basically if you have any kind of money at all in the south you are pretty much automatically in contention for the biggest douche in the world.
Whoever wins the rushing battle will win this game. Don't come out on this limb here, it's shaky.
i dunno what limb i'm climbing out on, i'm just saying the same thing you are: if we can run on them we can beat them. PSU and iowa both have better defenses than oregon does.
if oregon's safeties and LBs can't contain, Tressel is going to throw the playbook in the trash and just yell OFF TACKLE into his headset every five seconds until someone tells him we won the game
he might also yell SWEEP every 10th time just for variety
There may be one point where Darrell Hazell forcibly removes Tress's headset, puts it on and yells "MISDIRECTION"
But otherwise, that'll be the gameplan.
So I was looking to see if any websites had the spread already up for the RoseBowl, but found this beauty http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/or... It's so funny they start bickering half way down then stop talking about it all together. Thanks god we're not scUM, how horrible would it be to have posts like that? "This is what our team could be if we had the right personnel".
As far as the game itslef, I think it's great that we don't have a bunch of guys out there winning awards and they can focus on football, hopefully Fickell wont be out interviewing places and get this D ready for all 4 quarters. After watching a few of Oregon's games the biggest problem with their O is holding onto the ball they've put it on the ground 23 times this year. And I think we all know they haven't faced a D even close to as good as OSU's.
the talk about fickell comes up every year, frankly i'm fine with him taking a HC job someplace as long as a) it isn't a school anyone will ever care about, b) Tressel makes it clear that he's the guy he wants to have take over someday, and c) its someplace local.
although honestly the next HC could be either fickell or hazell and i'd be happy. the sad thing is that there is pretty much zero chance of seeing the both of them at OSU once Tressel retires, they're both HC material and know it.
I'm not really worried about him leaving, I know it's going to happen at some point, nor am I worried about who's going to take JT's spot, he's not going anywhere for a long time.
They'd just join the long list of coaches who would leave their job to come back. Im not so sure Bo Pelini isn't in the mix also. Especially if Nebraska continues to improve. Defenses improve dramatically in short time with him.
What if Les Miles and Dick Rod BOTH get fired next year? Any chance they flip flop places?
I really don't see Tressel coaching much longer than after his contract is up in 2012, he's made it clear before that he has no interest in coaching until he's 70. not saying we have to start the "after Tress" talk now, but i dunno, if he wants hazell and fickell to stick around it might be time to finally, officially, make them d-coordinator and o-coordinator
two words: troll toll.
Cavs yes.... browns and indians not so much
besides, the world ends in 2012.
So if Tressel coaches til the end of 2012, he'll be 59 right? Then he'd only be coaching at ohio state for what 12 years? Maybe he won't coach til 70 but I bet he'll be around at least 5 more years after that.
They way LSU has played the last couple of years, I'd love to see Les Miles in Michigan. He won't be any better than DickRod. I worry that's the job Brian Kelly will end up taking. In my opinion, with the team he has coming back to UC, he'll go back for another year.
Collaros will end up being a Heisman candidate next year, that offense will be awesome again next year, even with losing some good receivers.
he'll be 60 (today is his birthday! happy birthday coach!) and i don't think he'll coach well into his 60s. he might get to 62 or 63 but i think he wants to retire at an age that most people would.
USC and LSU crashed and burned because we *failed* miserably at playing Tresselball. We gave up a pick six in both of those games and had horrible field position the entire game. Teams almost never win evenly matched games where they do that. There is an NFL statistic that no team has ever won a super bowl where they threw a pick six.
Florida actually felt like it failed because we abandoned Tresselball and played bad defense. Our o-line played horribly and Troy was off that day, and we still put the whole game on his shoulders. I remember seeing him get run down from behind by a DE - say what you want about SEC speed, but I've seen him outrun plenty of guys that were going in the first round at DE before. OSU came out really flat against a really good team - I think that one had very little to do with Tresselball.
No matter what offensive philosophy you are using, if you fail to run it or the other team manages to stop it, you're going to lose.
Ha! "Say No To Quack" Good stuff... at least now I know what my Facebook status will be on 1-1-2010.
Also, LSU always wears white (even at home).
I hate Urban Meyer, but I'll take him as coach haha
Not to over-simplify, but isn't the "key" early in the Rose Bowl going to be our ability to NOT go 3 and out? To me, even if we don't score touchdowns (though...gee... that would be cool, too), it will be key in my mind to A) Have the ball and B) Keep out D off the field / fresh. In other words, I will only go "dooms day" here if I start seeing 3 and outs early.
Traditional Tresselball won't cut it in this game. You can't think, well we'll just punt and "pin them in" at the 10. Oregon will just think, "Well, I guess we'll have to go 90 yards in 8 plays."
If we once again go over 200 yards rushing and own the time of possession (preferably 2 to 1) I will be shocked if we don't win.
I know...I am oversimplifying.
*out = our (sorry)
JC the UC-Pitt refs are horrible
Well it's because they don't want Cincinnati to lose, what is Texas loses and some how they jump TCU? If they lose here they wont be able to go to the MNC game. But it was the same way last week vs the Zookers, that one TD the kids first step was 6'' out but yet somehow they reviewed it and still gave him the TD.
On the road. How bad is the Pitt beatdown on Cinci?
they're up 14 at the half. were up 21, but Gilyard ran a kick or punt back. cincy's offense has looked like dog doo so far.
Our D line is not going to give Oregon enough time to develop the "Big Plays" which seem to define their offense. The physicality of the Ducks backfiled in the face of the Buckeye D line will define the game.
+ 1 to Oregon's Problems with physical teams. Stanford plays a big ten style of ball right now. I like our chances.
Your Duck Oline is going to get blown up often and early! Masoli will be running for his life, and if were lucky your Running Back won't be punching people in the face from the frustration of it all.
Damn! I hate Cincy... C'mon Pitt! Score slowly and hang on...
I live in North Carolina, but I was born in Ohio. I have been a BUCKEYE since I can remember, but the Ducks are a challenge.
They present so many challenges on defense it becomes confusing. However, OSU has an improved defense from earlier in the season, and maybe even a potential player-of-the-year candidate candidate in Terelle Pryor. There is no way to compensate for J. Masoli and his running, so my prediction is:
I'm pretty sure our last big games were against Penn State, Iowa, and Michigan.
You try to tackle Masoli, he is a little better than that weak a$$ michigan QB
Duck grad here... interesting thread. All the talk about common opponents and the like is utter nonsense. We haven't seen a defense that approaches yours and you haven't seen an offense as explosive as ours. Classic matchup... strength on strength... striker versus grappler.
I like our chances because I think our defense is a lot better then you think and our so called "gimmick" offense is a whole lot better than yours. Pound away all you want with your power running game (like everyone's tried to do) and win the time of possession (like everyone does... we're 115th out of 120). The real question is... how many points will be score during the 25 minutes we'll have possession of the ball?
Objectively, on defense we're not all that stout up front. Our D-Line is game, but undersized. We rush the passer well, but we struggle with power running games. We mask that with team speed. Our LB's run like safeties and our safeties hit like linebackers (especially TJ Ward... #2... you'll know his name by the end of the game). Our corners are very talented, but find themselves in a lot of one-on-one situations. We lost our best CB (Walter Thurmond III) and his backup early in the season. We now start Cliff Harris, a true freshman, who has mad cover skills but is somewhat mistake prone. Our other corner, Talmadge Jackson, is also young (soph) but has been solid all year.
In the end of the day, this is a really interesting matchup on both sides of the ball. We're going to get our points... my guess 30 or so. The real question is... how many will we give up?
Ducks 34, Bucks 27
