KICKOFF: 3:30PM ET
FAVORITE: Ohio State (-8)
TELEVISION: ESPN
RADIO: OSU Football Affiliates
WEATHER: Moderate chance of rain

 

 

 

 

It's difficult to have a true "rematch" of teams nearly a decade after their last game, but the media and Miami fans in particular are ready and willing to cast this afternoon's game as such. The reality of the situation is that players on both sides were in middle school when Maurice Clarett pilfered an interception away from Sean Taylor, and today's game matches two programs that have reversed positions in the decade since.

Ohio State is the national overlord, winner of five straight Big Ten championships, 7 BCS bowl appearances in the decade and 4 wins in them. Miami, on the other hand, is the fallen power looking for its shot at returning to the big time. 

However, this is a focused, veteran Jim Tressel team. With the big game woes shaken off after last year's wins over Iowa, Penn State and Oregon, a tight, turnover-free game by the Buckeyes should be a recipe for a W today in the Shoe.

Feel free to join us in the comment section for reactions throughout the game.

I was wondering when this was going up.  Figured it might be forgotten due to the tailgate

Ill_Buckeye's picture

Gotta just say it now OSU 24-10

ColdBuckeye's picture

prediction: Even though it pains Mark May to say it, he will have no choice but to praise Saine and the Buckeyes this evening during football final. Saine's 2 touchdown, 200 total yard game gets a lot of attention!

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Not the slightest chance. Instead Mark May will do absolutely anything possible to not praise the Buckeyes. So I imagine on football final, the U just wasn't any good and the Buckeyes weren't truly tested.

iball's picture

Why does anyone even talk about May Mark?

Im gonna have to go against the great football mind that is Bobby Bowden and pick THE Ohio State Buckeyes. Because, well, let's face it, we are the shit.

Florida continuing to play awful, this time against South Florida.  7-7 early in the 3rd and USF is just looking like the better team.

iball's picture

This just in, Bulls have Gators on the ropes.

Thats why you play for South Florida

Until you give them the ball inside the red zone :-/

Oh well, It's still delightful to watch Florida regressing to caveman.

flipbuckeye's picture

God Minnesota is awful.  Down 34-24 entering the 4th against SOUTH DAKOTA.

iball's picture

OSU 10-0 when Saine rushes for 50+. Nuff said.

F@$k Miami, the 2 live crew, and all of Florida!!  

Go Bucks!!!  3:30 couldn't come any sooner!!!

"Gamecocks" is the coolest nickname in CFB. But no, there's no cultural history of animal violence in the South.

The Buckeye pregame show in Dayton, has been replaced by a P90X infomercial. FAIL.

Rain.

Rain.

Rain.

I hope we're ready to use our stable of running backs. O-line needs to get a good push.

Saw last night on ESPN Mark May admitted that "I would need a team of bodyguards should I venture into the Horseshoe."

I love it.

 
 

tampa buckeye's picture

It's raining? That sucks.

tampa buckeye's picture

Just looked at the radar looks clear from sunny fla.  Rain late in the game hopefully we have a good lead by then.  Go Bucks!

NWS radar shows heavy showers and maybe a t-storm in the Dayton area moving slightly NW. Might just brush the Shoe.

I'M SORRY! I AM NOT SURE WHAT THIS POST IS ON. I CARE BUT NOT FOR THIS COMMENT. I JUST WATCHED ESPN AT 3PM BEFORE THE GAME WITH LOU HOLTZ AND THE REASON WHY I AM WRITING THIS, MARK"F**KING"MAY. I THINK HE JUST WANTS TO PISS ME OFF. "MIAMI HAS OVERALL SPEED, OSU ONLY HAS STRAIGHTAWAY SPEED" I F**KING HATE HIM! I AM SO PISSED AND I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO START WATCHING THE GAME. MAN I HATE HIM! AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

cyt_buck's picture

But man you have to give props to Lou tho, that was the first time I've ever seen him support Ohio State in an argument like that.

tampa buckeye's picture

shortest path to the goal line a straight line.  this game will not be close if we take care of the football.

tampa buckeye's picture

I want to hit somebody.  Let's do this.  Time to shut some mouths.

Just shows the influence of Buckeye nation, ratings jump when May disses the Bucks due to fans that still get heated over his antics.

poguemahone's picture

So Georgia Tech loses to Kansas (who lost to an FCS team last week), and Virginia Tech is beating James Madison by two. Meanwhile, Wake Forest and Duke is a basketball game with a score of 54-41. ACC off to a hot start. 

flipbuckeye's picture

Malcolm Jenkins sighting!  Let's sneak my boy into some pads!!!

poguemahone's picture

Good to see Nasty Nate Williams in pads.

Nik's picture

ugh, forgot my internet provider isn't in ESPN3's network, and I don't have cable.  Gotta watch this on justintv, FML

Chris Lauderback's picture

Greetings, Buckeye Fans! Just got back from the sick tailgate - bout to watch our boys deliver a beatdown!

poguemahone's picture

James Madison is now beating Va Tech, FWIW

flipbuckeye's picture

So far we're having more success in the air.

flipbuckeye's picture

Pryor looks like he has the big game jitters again.

iball's picture

Our recievers are blanketed, were gonna have to use more timing routes like the Posey first down catch.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

What the fuck ref?  Add 2 yards to that otherwise non 3rd down conversion.

iball's picture

horrible call

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

iball's picture

CJ Barnett same HS as Kurt Coleman

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

Powers's picture

would have walked in without that "hold"

Chris Lauderback's picture

refs setting the tone early...shitty spot on 3rd down, shittier holding call.

VBBuckeye's picture

Bad call count = 1

KCAlum's picture

WTF was that?  What a piss poor kickoff

iball's picture

weak

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

wheres our block in the back!?

ACC officials

iball's picture

wtf is up with the kicking game? and sweat is trying to get pt?

wtf is tress doing? play berry!

poguemahone's picture

Not off to a good start at all.

iball's picture

why is herron getting more touches than saine?

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

TLB's picture

Pryor is awful.  Looks like last week was a mirage.

OHIOST1087's picture

Why are the refs from the ACC?

iball's picture

terrible coverage chekwa

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

With hits like that, Barnett's trying to be my new favorite player.

Joe Beale's picture

How about we go down the field a bit?

TLB's picture

Pryor looks scared.  They will now tee off on our run game because he cant throw

Joe Beale's picture

These 3rd down plays should be run on 1st down.  I don't get the play-calling today.

TLB's picture

Have to run when your QB has limited ability.

tampa buckeye's picture

long game no need to make a mistake in our redzone

TLB's picture

At least the defense came to play..........hmmm  Tress doesnt do any coaching there.

tampa buckeye's picture

that holding call was bush league

VBBuckeye's picture

Wake up guys! This is not a good start at all...

OHIOST1087's picture

I agree.. playcalling has been horrible the last 2 possessions

tampa buckeye's picture

if our kicker can't get it to the endzone we have problems. need to open it up on first downs. we are not wisconsin

flipbuckeye's picture

HOLDINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Joe Beale's picture

That was an NFL caliber hold on their left tackle.

OHIOST1087's picture

Holding Holding Holding!!!!! Wake up ACC Refs!

TLB's picture

This is bullshit

TLB's picture

Checkwa gets beat every play

Joe Beale's picture

I guess that's how you make a long field goal.  OSU special teams, take note. 

collisionbend's picture

I'm wondering where my Buckeyes went today...

tampa buckeye's picture

4 quarters they need to open it up on offense. no huddle 

OHIOST1087's picture

Chekwa is soo lucky the bias ACC refs didn't see that...

tampa buckeye's picture

what bias for who.  they all missed three calls vs ohio state

Joe Beale's picture

I have to agree with Blackledge there.  We should go downfield.

flipbuckeye's picture

There's that arm, Pryor.

iball's picture

Now we all love Pryor again group hug.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

there we go... good playcall on 1st down.

Big Riz's picture

YES! Finally we open it up a bit!

Joe Beale's picture

Yep, that's what I'm talking about.

iball's picture

LIC!

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

now THAT"S how you do it

TLB's picture

Back to back good passes.

TLB's picture

Back to back good passes.

TLB's picture

swear I only hit save once

RedQueenRace's picture

Unfortunately we now have to kick off.

tampa buckeye's picture

BOOM that is the number 2 team in the nation

Powers's picture

throwing to the running back!!!!

iball's picture

its good

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

Nice pass by Pryor, even better catch by Zoom.

Joe Beale's picture

What in the bleep are they reviewing?  

TLB's picture

Damn right its a touchdown

iball's picture

thats 2003 guilt

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

You mean they didn't try to make it up the first 3 bad calls?

OHIOST1087's picture

Now let's see if we remember how to play special teams...

iball's picture

TP goin old school with the do. I like it, Kid n Play style.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

iball's picture

See this is where I agree with Urban Meyer, play your best athletes on ST's. Not Andrew Sweat. One play changed this game.

Dethsyth47's picture

These games always give me wicked heartburn.

Powers's picture

fair catch at 25? take that all day

Joe Beale's picture

Deep onside....I love it!

iball's picture

I thought Dorian Bell was 5 star top ILB in his class?

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

Nik's picture

god, what's up with these short kicks?  pissing me off!

iball's picture

Larimore is suspect. Pretty weak for his size.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

That was wonderful.

Joe Beale's picture

Simon Says: You Go Down!!!

iball's picture

nice

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

Big Riz's picture

and we have a John Simon sighting...

Powers's picture

thought that was Ted Ginn for a second

flipbuckeye's picture

His name is Hines, not Hale or Hall, guy on ESPN.

Nik's picture

actually I think it was Jordan Hall ;-)

flipbuckeye's picture

Oh :(

Still called him Hale lol.

Joe Beale's picture

That's Jordan Hall.

Big Riz's picture

I was really hoping I wasn't the only one noticing that. Maybe someone will tell him there is Jermale Hines and there is Jordan Hall, but no Jermale Hall

iball's picture

Pryor relax please

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

iball's picture

Let TP run and get some smack talk going, hes better that way

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

iball's picture

Don't know who is working with Pryor, but a JUNIOR, with 23 starts including several BIG games shouldn't look as indecisive as he does. I don't care if he does make the occasional nice play, he shouldn't be that antsy.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

TLB's picture

Indecisive or scared?

iball's picture

you should be scared, but not indecisive

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

Whew... at game speed that looked intercept-able, but the replay shows it was perfectly placed.

Joe Beale's picture

Who was the intended receiver there?

Powers's picture

hope that was a mix up

iball's picture

ugly

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

Good Pryor Bad Pryor.

Joe Beale's picture

Nice FG.

iball's picture

The Wr's are having major trouble getting open vs. the speedy Miami secondary. Need more timing routes.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

Those aren't working.

 

INT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe Beale's picture

I absolutely love those deep onside kicks.  The other team never knows what to do with it.

Joe Beale's picture

Great INT!

Big Riz's picture

Chekwa making up for some of his miscues earlier

flipbuckeye's picture

I like this Jacory Harris fella.

Natty Light's picture

anybody have a link for a streaming vid? Im overseas. 

flipbuckeye's picture

That is what is up, my friends.

Big Riz's picture

I think the boys are getting over any nerves they had in the first quarter...

Powers's picture

we love us some turnovers... automatic TD

Joe Beale's picture

We have 212 yards of offense to 69 for Miami.  

TLB's picture

We need to send some people

flipbuckeye's picture

Chekwa got smoked. And Miami O-Line giving Jacory plenty of time.

TLB's picture

We may want to give Checkwa some help

Joe Beale's picture

Simon Says: your knees will buckle!!

Big Riz's picture

man, all those Miami fans were so right about the Shoe being quiet. You could hear a pin drop...

poguemahone's picture

If Chekwa doesn't have a deep safety with him the entire second half, we're going to give up a long touchdown.

Joe Beale's picture

Mike Adams playing the turnstile again.  

Dethsyth47's picture

Gotta keep up the pressure. Foot. Throat. Now.

Powers's picture

guess we dont have all the trust in the world with pryor... do that play on 1st or 2nd down!

TLB's picture

Tress still doesnt trust Pryor

poguemahone's picture

Are you kidding me? Are these special teams even coached? 

Joe Beale's picture

Yikes, another botched coverage.  Too bad, that was a great punt.

poguemahone's picture

Yes, it was. Now we just need to start avoiding Miami returners altogether.

TLB's picture

omg

is that special teams or special needs?

Dethsyth47's picture

How is Tressel letting the Special Teams get so poor. This isn't like him at all

flipbuckeye's picture

That was the worst coverage I've ever seen.

Joe Beale's picture

Andrew Sweat is not getting it done on special teams.  He's missed the tackle on both of their TD's.

Big Riz's picture

seriously?!? tackled by the kicker? tsk tsk

Joe Beale's picture

Stoney!

poguemahone's picture

Pryor's definitely locking on to guys and ignoring the ones who are actually open.

TLB's picture

playing for field goal again

OHIOST1087's picture

best call by the refs so far today

Joe Beale's picture

That was a strange play.  Pryor tackeld by Mike Adams.

RedQueenRace's picture

I live in Florida w/o the BTN and so don't see the Bucks on TV much.  Do we ever throw over the middle?

TLB's picture

No, and you just saw why

Nik's picture

I don't like all these Pryor rushes, especially when he's running right into these huge piles, afraid he's gonna get hurt soon

RedQueenRace's picture

Well, finally did.  But it looked like he should have run it.

Joe Beale's picture

Stoney was open, but the pass lacked the proper touch.

TLB's picture

that hurts.  we need 7 there.

OHIOST1087's picture

I think Barclay false started on that FG... luckily for us the refs didn't catch it.

Big Riz's picture

chekwa gets a 2nd

Joe Beale's picture

I love Jacory Harris.

RedQueenRace's picture

Two of those are on his receivers.

flipbuckeye's picture

That was a sweet hit! Oh... the interception is nice too.

Big Riz's picture

Come on Tress, go for the throat!

flipbuckeye's picture

I think... we're going the wrong way.

iball's picture

My god, of all the times just to run and set up the fg, now he passes.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

flipbuckeye's picture

There's your pass down the middle.

RedQueenRace's picture

Yep.  Wide open too with no sideline to help defend.

RedQueenRace's picture

The middle is where the openings are.

iball's picture

I think no Duron is hurting us today.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

Nik's picture

agreed, but Stoney is certainly helping make up for the loss

TLB's picture

What the hell are we doing

Joe Beale's picture

Why didn't they use the time out there?

poguemahone's picture

It looked like TP tried to call it, but the ref's didn't react.

iball's picture

Typical Buckeye game, +3 turnover ratio and 4 fg's.

“There’s one thing I have learned through all my adventures and conquests - it’s that some people are just wired for success. I had no choice when it came to being great - I just am great.” – Kenny Powers

tampa buckeye's picture

this game should be over!!! what the hell no timeout at the end of the half?

poguemahone's picture

26-3 with competent kick coverage.

tampa buckeye's picture

should be 30 that holding call was bush

flipbuckeye's picture

We should be up by 30.

Powers's picture

that was just god awful... call a time out and go to the end zone then kick the fg

Big Riz's picture

this game should be at least 34-3 if not for idiotic mistakes

poguemahone's picture

Positives: Miami continues to do absolutely nothing on offense. 

Kick return game looks dangerous again.

Secondary holding up, mostly.

Running game solid after the first quarter.

RedQueenRace's picture

We've been fortunate.  They've done a good job against the lines on both sides of the ball.

poguemahone's picture

Negatives: just about everything else 

JakeBuckeye's picture

Couple of things while its halftime;

TP = Competent performance, but not exactly an ideal one.

Silver Bullets = Wow, these guys are so good. And opportunistic...

And on one final note, our special teams sucks. And that scares me. A lot.

VBBuckeye's picture

True... Special teams are horrible. We should be up by a bunch. Again, letting a team hang around! At least our D is doing work.

Big Riz's picture

they just have to keep kicking deep onsides on kickoffs and put it out of bounds on punts. It isn't pretty, but its not like Miami's offense is really making them pay

OHIOST1087's picture

Luckily for us Miami's DB's are dropping all the balls that Pryor is throwing straight to them! Pryor needs to step up his performance quick before he really does throw an INT.

WestCoastBuckeye's picture

Apparently we live in Bizarro world relying on the Offense to bail out special teams? Up is down left is right cats and dogs are living together!

tampa buckeye's picture

but ya the d has given up 3 pts and the O put up 26 i like our chances if we dont turn it over.  stop their returns, and don't shut it down on offense.  

1st drive here on d is huge. GO Bucks!! Let's do this 

Nik's picture

what the hell happened to our rushing defense?

flipbuckeye's picture

HEYWARD!!!! I LOVE YOU.

Nik's picture

that little juke move on the return was just beautiful!

flipbuckeye's picture

4 INTs. Thank you Jacory.

Nik's picture

more INTs than Mike Adams Specials, that's just crazy

Nik's picture

actually, are there ANY false starts on us yet today?

tampa buckeye's picture

ahhhhh yaaaa.  lets pound these guys.  Cam was huffin it.  Pryor just too Fast for those miami boys.

poguemahone's picture

I was wondering if holding was ever going to get called.

Nik's picture

they called one earlier too, when the guy on the left side of the line obviously held Cam, but yeah, they're holding pretty much everytime and rarely getting called

poguemahone's picture

Defense needs to step it up, lay off the zone 

RedQueenRace's picture

I don't see that working if we can't get pressure.

Nik's picture

holy shit, Hankins really is huge!

GrayDay's picture

we playing prevent?

Nik's picture

WHAT!?  Special teams sighting?

flipbuckeye's picture

Aw man. Heacock really wanted Miami to score there.

iball's picture

Damn stud recruits, ruinin Heacocks schemes with their new fangled fast twitch muscles.

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMM!

OHIOST1087's picture

Ohio State's got one of those in their....... uh... "trophy area" - Brad Nessler. Genius comment Mr. Nessler

iball's picture

Can Berry and Hall get some meaningful touches? I mean they are the best RB's on the team

Damn, just as I was typing that I want to see berry out there instead of herron, haha

tampa buckeye's picture

dude that was a florida play nice. very good call

tampa buckeye's picture

my 42-24 score might come in here 

RedQueenRace's picture

This having to pooch kick is pitiful.

flipbuckeye's picture

I'll take the pooch kick and banking on Miami to piss itself over the risk of another TD return.

RedQueenRace's picture

Agree, but it doesn't bode well going forward.

iball's picture

noooooooooooooo.....

The "Hardly Hostile" crowd sure is causing a lot of false starts on Miami.

we should be up by more got to hold them to a fg here

Joe Beale's picture

Or get a turnover.

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

Miami is doing anything they want to.  What is up with the d.  Or lack of, I should say

No pressure on Harris and the secondary isn't that good.

Dang, should have been another INT.

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

no pressure on Harris, pathetic endzone coverage.  we are getting eaten alive on both sides of the ball.  both of our lines are getting beaten, regularly.

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

this game is far from over.

Heacock wins that battle, but he must not win the war.

20 bucks says first play is a run

While the allowed touchdown was terrible, if some of you goobers paid any attention to the soft coverage we have been using ... you'd see they're only getting the yards they are b/c we're content to let them.

iball's picture

Sooooo, we're content to let them cut the lead to 12 with a full qtr remaining?

I think we're all privy to this team's style of defense, no need for the lesson. Soft coverage and hope and pray the other team makes a mistake.  Up until that last TD drive Miami has obliged, but that kind of defense is what helped Texas drive down and take the game from us 2 years ago.

I'm pretty sure that TD gave their offense some confidence too.  But as long as we're content.

EDIT: this was in response to INTRESSEL

it doesn't matter who we run if the line can't block

Joe Beale's picture

Moving back into position for another field goal.  (snark)

Nik's picture

He just wants to set another record is all

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

can we clone z boren and put five of him on the line?

Nik's picture

of course we can, we're THE Ohio State University!

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

as a "goober" who has seen the prevent defense lose too many games, i'll stand by what I said.

Nik's picture

what the hell happened there?  there wasn't even any pressure on that FG!

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

let's hope heacock lets the dogs of war loose

iball's picture

damn boom herron is the shizzz, ibet him goin first round - goober

It's becoming apparent that red zone ineptitude is still a problem here in Buckeyeland.

OHIOST1087's picture

Pryor's inconsistency and inaccuracy has really hurt us on 3rd down... 5 field goals!!! We will probably have to convert those third downs at Iowa and Wisconsin and not settle for sending Barclay out on the field.

I have to vent:

If was a special team s coach:

Anybody that hits the f-ing terf on coverage, wind sprints for the weak. (Andrew Sweat - and two others)

Anybody who over runs the punt coverage, wind sprints for the weak.

Missed field goal Wind sprints for the weak.

Penalties in the re zone - wind sprints for the entire week.

A rudiementary game plan to start the game where we are running on first down every f-ing time. wind sprints for the coaching staff.

This game should be a forgone conclusion. Except for special teams, this game should have been over.

Damn, I think I owe a couple windsprints

pitch and catch - i predict another miami score

Joe Beale's picture

Prediction: failed.

Nik's picture

hmmm... Orhian out there, good thing or bad thing?

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

now, the big question is, will we come out, run three useless plays, and punt?

OHIOST1087's picture

Kenny Guiton time?

Nik's picture

only two score differential, i wouldn't.  All they'd need would be a pick-six and an onside

flipbuckeye's picture

Holy crap they went for it.

flipbuckeye's picture

Saine has been unspectacular.

GrayDay's picture

except for that TD catch, very nice

Joe Beale's picture

ND leading scUM 24-21, but the rodents are on the move in Irish territory.

Velcro's looking good for the second week in a row.  Can't wait till he has to play in the B10 though, hehe

OHIOST1087's picture

wonder what Seantrel Henderson is thinking right now... probably regretting he is not on the other sideline...

Big Riz's picture

I wonder how Mark May is going to avoid giving the Bucks credit for beating a top 15 team that has southern "superior speed"

Joe Beale's picture

Would have been a TD if not for the horsecollar tackle.

Joe Beale's picture

Brad Nessler can talk all he wants about not needing style points, but tell that to Texas in 2008.  The fact that Oklahoma ran up the score consistently is what got them into the championship game against Florida.
