Iowa took care of business for us.

Now it just comes down to winning out and looking lethal while doing so.

Fuck me.  No game here in Missouri and it's blacked out on ESPN3.  WTF.

JakeBuckeye's picture

No game on TV and blacked out? That's a rarity... Sucks...

MirrorLakeJump's picture

:( What happened to having the out of region ABC game spill over to one of the ESPNs?

Thanks ESPN3 for your lack of net neutrality.

Student radio, here I come. 

JakeBuckeye's picture

Touchdown, good guys!

Had me scared we would have to settle for a field goal there. Boom could only avoid tripping over his feet for a few games.

Pam's picture

Hi Guys,

I can get the game.  TP just scored on a 46 yd. drive that took 5:35. 

Pam's picture

No problem "guys" is gender neutral.  It least it is with servers at Applebees

Tim's picture

Wow, great throw by Weber.  And Rolle's down, that's all we need...

poguemahone's picture

That was a terrible throw. Hines overran his coverage, could have had a pick.

Tim's picture

I know- that was completely sarcastic.  That ball was terribly underthrown. 

poguemahone's picture

Haha, alright

I'm now even mroe pissed at Hines because he could have ended that last Minny drive

Tim's picture

Yeah, Hines should've at least broken that up.  Gray did a good job decoying him it looked like, though.

poguemahone's picture

Oh jeez, injury gods. Have mercy.

Pam's picture

Rolle is hurt

poguemahone's picture

I had a nagging feeling Minny would keep this close for a quarter or two.

Michael's picture

This is really bad if a Minnesota offense can do this to us.

poguemahone's picture

Is it? Minnesota's offense has moved the ball on teams and put up points, they've just had some truly terrible stretches. They were close for a half against Wisconsin and USC.

Luke's picture

Welp time to start drinking. Faster.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Oh God...

Now even if we win 98-7 the headlines will read "Buckeyes struggle as they scrape by Minnesota"

Pam's picture

Let that be the last TD they score

Irricoir's picture

Somone tell the BWW guy to get his finger off the button. No more injuries.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

poguemahone's picture

Mike Patrick is blind

Irricoir's picture

Keep the runs going off tackle. Good run Herron.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Michael's picture

Boom running like a man possessed, love the YAC.

poguemahone's picture

I think Minny has adjusted to the bubble screens

Tim's picture

Ok, let's try something other than WR screens now.

poguemahone's picture

They are giving up just about everything on the outside

Pam's picture

I love me some Boom

Irricoir's picture

If I never hear Cam newton mentioned during another OSU game it will be too soon.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

Well, they wear the same # and are the same height,

poguemahone's picture

It helps that Newton and Pryor could be cousins in terms of resemblance

JakeBuckeye's picture

I was just waiting for him to say "They're both black too"

I hate Craig James, and I wish him all the worst.

Irricoir's picture

Bad enough he has to be compared to VY all the time and now its Cam.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

Tom, you are a beacon of positivity and faith

tomcollins's picture

I'm a realist.  We are making Webber look like Joe Montana.

poguemahone's picture

No, you're a naysayer, who only posts when things are going poorly.

Pam's picture

I really hate that.  Can you just say"own us" or anything else? 

Irricoir's picture

Hurray for Saine! I like that kid just wish he was a more effective running back.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

JakeBuckeye's picture

How does Minny not know that we are going to Saine right there? Saw that from a mile away.

741's picture

Boom looking like a tough runner. That said, I would still rotate in the younger guys (Berry, Hall) every now and then with the ones... Why not?

741's picture

I can't believe how bad our kickoff specialist is... I hate to pick on a specific kid, but jeezus.

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, we can't consistently boot it out of the field of play, and that hasnt helped the coverage units

741's picture

I want to say there have been maybe 3 touchbacks on KO all year? (I did not look this up to check myself - apologies if I am way off base.)

Irricoir's picture

Good to see Rolle in there. Can we get more defensive line pressure please?

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Better coverage too?

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

Yikes. These secondary injuries really are coming back to haunt us.

Matt's picture

Man, if Minny is doing this to our secondary, Iowa is going to blow us off the field.

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, there is no hope. Might as well close down the football program.

tomcollins's picture

Whatever, listen to Sam.  We are going to win every game by 80, be put in the BCS championship game and beat Auburn by 120.  Anything other than that kind of thinking is pessimistic.

JakeBuckeye's picture

And if you say anything positive about buckeye football you are an irrational, blind homer.

I would honestly hate to think the way you think. I would not be capable of enjoying buckeye football if I did. Its just a damn game. We're fans to enjoy the games and even overrate our team sometimes.

tomcollins's picture

Of course not, I never make such terrible statements.  I just don't get excited about winning against terrible teams when there are obvious problems.  But I guess if you enjoy getting your hopes irrationally high then getting them crushed, Ohio State + Blinders is the way to go.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Yes, because that's the way (in a positive mindset) I ENJOY THE DAMN FOOTBALL GAME. Now get over yourself.

Irricoir's picture

Wow a Sack. I had forgotten what those looked like. Good Job Bucks.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Wait...what was that? A Sack?

Irricoir's picture

Hell yeahs!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Missed field goal, no tricks there. All treat!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

I am kinda glad I cant get coverage in my area. I get to join you guys in here..

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

Craig James seems to like TP.

741's picture

Hey, they rotated in a young RB - nice.

Pam's picture

Nice catch Dane!

RedQueenRace's picture

Neither team can cover a receiver.

Irricoir's picture

Sanz!!! I really think he's the best in the nation. Not the most physicaly gifted but the best dependable receiver.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

741's picture

Hmmm. I agree he is really good for the Buckeyes, but I don't know bro... a little home bias in that statement. I mean, Julio Jones is just one name that comes to mind...

Irricoir's picture

Julio has the physical skills but is nowhere near as dependable nor consistent. He is more comparable to Posey with the drtopsies than Sanz. He certainly has more physical prowess.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

JakeBuckeye's picture

A.J. Green is better than both. That guy literally NEVER ceases to amaze me. Great player. So is Sanz.

Tim's picture

HA!  They didn't cover the middle because it's Halloween!

poguemahone's picture

I think that's ten straight for TP

poguemahone's picture

Eh

That's prolly why I'm not a coach

JakeBuckeye's picture

When we're up by only 6 or 7 points I'm always in favor of kicking the field goal. Better to get a two possesion lead than chance a huge momentum swing on the road.

Irricoir's picture

Mehhhh....   3     Did he say Barkley?

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Yeah, sounded like the announcer said Barkley.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

Oh. Probably. Not as egregious as "San Antonio Holmes"

poguemahone's picture

These are some truly terrible costumes

Irricoir's picture

Well that muff certainly helped our Coverage team look more competant.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

I think the Aflac answer is JT

tomcollins's picture

Seemed like the obvious pick.  What year was it?  I didn't see since ESPN 3 quality is terrible for me now.

poguemahone's picture

It's not JT. He was December 5th, 1951.

Also, derp Pryor.

tomcollins's picture

51 made me think Tressel.  Who else is that old?  Saban could be that old.  He's also evil.

Matt's picture

It's saban. 

tomcollins's picture

WTF, special teams looking good?  Of course ESPN3 cut out from the punt until he got to the 5.  Replay looked awesome, excellent vision.  Excited for that young man to see the field as a RB more.

 

AND awesome INT.  God damnit.

RedQueenRace's picture

Unreal sequence there.

Irricoir's picture

well I waited to chear on here and before I could type it now I am pissed. Bad move Pryor.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I saw Boren open. I told him to throw the ball. Just wayyyyyy too late.

741's picture

Horrifically bad pass.

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, just a dumb dumb play by Pryor. This could have been over.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Yes, that was bad. But that was truly the first time Pryor has had that kind of play all year. Dumbest decision of the year by far.

poguemahone's picture

The other INTs have been greedy Pryor, yeah. That was dumb, sophomore year Pryor.

741's picture

Yep. He has regressed a little bit recently, trying too hard to make plays at times rather than letting things come to him. Still a great QB for us - please don't jump all over me... When it's all said and done, by the end of the 2011 season I think he'll own almost all of the QB statistical records at OSU.

poguemahone's picture

Plz don't leave the DBs one-on-one

Abuck10's picture

TP takes me back to the Bellisari days.

poguemahone's picture

That's just cruel

At least wait til he's doing drunken wheelies down high street

tomcollins's picture

Bellisari could not run like Pryor.  Pryor is a mix between Troy Smith and Steve Bellisari though.

741's picture

SC giving the Ducks a game: USC 17, Oregon 15

Pam's picture

I  have really come to hate Chip Kelly. 

Orlando Buckeye's picture

Sweet.  Now we just need to take care of biznezz and ESPN can set up the Pryor vs Cam hype machine.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Darron Thomas looks like he's ready for the Ice Age. Not sure why, its nice in SoCal right now.

Irricoir's picture

I am actualy nervous about our defense so far this game. If Minn just pased every down they'd be dangerous. I am not sure our secondary is ready for this guy. Granted, Weber is rarely spot on the entire game.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Gimme another return Hall!!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

You know, I think the last time I remarked on how many straight completions Pryor had in a game, he followed it up with an INT against EMU

I need to stop doin' dat

Buckinnc's picture

Everyone here holds you personally responsible

poguemahone's picture

I'll apologize to TP when I see him on the bus next week

Pam's picture

Tell him Pam from NJ says hello

Irricoir's picture

I predict a steady stream of run calling.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

Evan Royster is forcing himself down UM's throat

Irricoir's picture

I am guilty of not being a big fan of Herron at the beginning of the year. I am man enough to admit when Im wrong.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Quite Funny!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

Dan has 100 yards for the first time in his career!

tomcollins's picture

I'm really shocked this is the first time.  Boom is a beast.  I'm expecting some big things from him next year as the #1 guy with solid support.  He just works so hard on the field and has vision.

RedQueenRace's picture

USC fumbles.  One play Oregon TD.

Pam's picture

Don't fuck this one up

poguemahone's picture

Herron is a man tonight

Irricoir's picture

There is nothing that states "weakness" like that kickoff right there.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

741's picture

Hold up - was that KO on purpose? WTF?!

poguemahone's picture

It was an intentional squib to some Minny fatback

poguemahone's picture

Because our kicks go 50 yards, get returned 30 yards and instead, we can just kick it twenty yards to some fat dude who won't return it at all

741's picture

A truly sad state of affairs.

poguemahone's picture

Oh thank goodness. He's up, but I'm sure he's fuzzy.

Pam's picture

Seeing a hit like that makes my stomach turn.  Good grief there is a kid in NJ who will never walk again.  Devon, don't do that again ever!

BuckeyeChief's picture

What up Bro's? Watching on ESPN3, hooked up from laptop to tv, it looks much better. A few thoughts:
1. Good God can anyone else on D get hurt?
2. Pryor countinues to amaze and dismay. Wonder why they rarely call any runs for him?
3. Is there a law against us getting sacks this year?
4. How can our offense be so effective and vanilla at the same time?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

"Wonder why they rarely call any runs for him?"

Quad...

BuckeyeChief's picture

You're probably right. Hope it gets better before Iowa.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

tomcollins's picture

He's been able to run when he's needed to, but why risk it against Purdue/Minnesota?  Just keep him healthy.  He may not run as much as he could against Iowa, but I expect to see him running then.  That's our biggest hope in that game.

BuckeyeChief's picture

I love vanilla ice cream btw.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Pam's picture

It's nice to have some sprinkles now and then

Tim's picture

Not a big deal in a game like this, but we always seem to let 5-10 seconds run off the clock before we call a timeout in situations like this.  I wish we'd make the decision more quickly.

BuckeyeChief's picture

WTF is Craig James talking about?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Irricoir's picture

Shut up Craig James, thanks.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

That was all Posey!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Posey threw it to himself and ran 40 yards to go get it? Damn.

Irricoir's picture

Not quite Jake. Bauserman could have thrown a ball just like that. the throw was underthrown and Posey made that TD happen. If it makes you happy, Good job TP. Come Troll again.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Copy that, thanks. I get a little penned up when watching our boys play. My appologies.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

Oh hell yeah!

posey must have read this site...

I never noticed this before but next time Barclay is up, look out for the dance. Robot to the right two times, then robot to the left two times! LMAO

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Pam's picture

Is TP rocking a new 'do?

Irricoir's picture

Webber couldn't stay in the pocet, James. The defensive line showed great pressure forcing the turnover.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Wow these highlights are so last week!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Irricoir's picture

Heh yes they are.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Irricoir's picture

Glad they arent two weeks old.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

RedQueenRace's picture

What do people think the over/under on an Auburn/Oregon score would be?

AJ's picture

105-103...or something

"Without winners, there wouldn't even be civilization." -----------Woody Hayes

KINGOFDAMIDDIE's picture

If we get anymore injuries I going to scream

BuckeyeChief's picture

This coverage is 100% comical! Old highlights!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Wait, what happened?

BuckeyeChief's picture

ESPN 3 is showing last week's highlights.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Of like, all games? Or just ours? And why?

BuckeyeChief's picture

All games. Navy just beat Notre Dame AGAIN!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Middletown Middies against Wayne Warriors. Braxton Miller against Jalin Marshall battle against to future Ohio State quarterbacks possibly. First round playoffs next Saturday at Barnitz Stadium in Middletown Ohio

Johnny Ginter's picture

this will actually likely be a terrific game

BuckeyeChief's picture

Ducks starting to cruise. I would love to see them vs Bama. Our D may be too banged up.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Johnny Ginter's picture

HEY GUYS EVERYBODY GET INJURED C'MON EVERYBODY YEAH LET'S DO IT INJURIES AAAHHOOOOYYYY

honk honk

i sang this to my wife and she laughed...thank you for that

"Without winners, there wouldn't even be civilization." -----------Woody Hayes

Johnny Ginter's picture

INJURIES, ALL ALONE IN THE MOONLIGHT, I CAN GRIMACE LIKE THE OLD DAYS, IT WAS PAINFUL, THEN I REMEMBER THE TIME THAT I KNEW WHAT A QUAD STRAIN WAS, LET THE INJURY LIVE AGAIN

i named that part duece...

If the season ended today, projected Orange Bowl: #23 Virginia Tech vs. #14 Nebraska

LOL

Gonna be a winless day for DI-A Michigan schools.  Sweeeet.

+1,000,000,000

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

LOL, did Posey do the suck it gesture after he caught that 38 yarder?

BuckeyeChief's picture

The Daily Gopher comments are comical.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Matt's picture

God I hate our kickoff coverage. 

Matt's picture

I think Gray can project to the next level if he gets route running and blocking down.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Jeez our secondary is awful at times.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Travis Howard on that one

poguemahone's picture

Redeems himself on that blitz

BuckeyeChief's picture

Was that a sack?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Ah crap

That was like a half-hour after the play, Hines

Michael's picture

Seriously, completely incidental.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yep.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Matt's picture

My theory is that the Angry Michigan Secondary Hating God got bored destroying Michigan's secondary, and, with no more prospects in Ann Arbor, he directed his attention towards Columbus.

tomcollins's picture

Every time we think it can't look worse, we need to just look North.  Minnesota would probably put up 28 points on Michigan.

poguemahone's picture

Aw, poor Aaron Gant

BuckeyeChief's picture

I hope "Red Kryptonite" throws for 400 yds and 6 TD's tomorow. Also wish I could watch the game.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

And that right there is lack of any sort of move.

KINGOFDAMIDDIE's picture

and then theres that straight line speed that hurts us

poguemahone's picture

He was down, right?

poguemahone's picture

ugh

thanks for wasting our time, Tim Horton

flipbuckeye's picture

Knee down, elbow down.  Not even arguable.

BuckeyeChief's picture

State Kittens 31, scUM 10.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

I really, really, really like Matt Barkley as a quarterback. He'll be the best pure throwing QB in the nation next year.

AJ's picture

hes got some pretty good WR's

"Without winners, there wouldn't even be civilization." -----------Woody Hayes

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, and unlike most USC quarterbacks, he doesn't seem to be too much of a shithead.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Herron is hot, so we'd better bench him.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, not sure I get replacing him with Saine.

Matt's picture

Go for it tress

Matt's picture

Well done tress

BuckeyeChief's picture

The Ducks and Utes are in dogfights.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

I actually agree with Teeps cuz I wanna stomp on dey throats

RedQueenRace's picture

and we might miss.

Good God.

poguemahone's picture

Oh man

I already hate this stadium

BuckeyeChief's picture

Good. God.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

TP has the right to get a little bit angsty after that one.

Irricoir's picture

Nice, missed field goal at the 2 yard line.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

To be honest though, I kinda wish TP would hide his disappointment a bit more

poguemahone's picture

Not only does it speak to a lack of maturity, it makes it look like there's a fraction between him and JT where there probably isn't one. And that's probably going to be fodder for a holier-than-thou column from Bob Hunter at the Disgrace this week

Pam's picture

I hate that guy

JakeBuckeye's picture

Ronald Johnson is a beast on the punt returns... Big time game changer... SC on the doorstep of the lead...

Pam's picture

USC is getting some nice breaks.  UO just got a face mask penalty and is no 2nd and goal

JakeBuckeye's picture

2010 Oregon = The least disciplined team on and off the field in the history of college football

poguemahone's picture

Oh, I HATE this rule where they start at the 20 after a miss

Irricoir's picture

Where has that been all year???

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

AJ's picture

unfortantly we cant play minny every week...

"Without winners, there wouldn't even be civilization." -----------Woody Hayes

flipbuckeye's picture

USC just punched it in to take the lead.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Swweeeetttt!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Tim's picture

Yay special teams touchdown!

flipbuckeye's picture

TOUCHDOWN. Nice play.  Special Teams shows up.

Pam's picture

LOL!!! Special teams finally did something right!

tomcollins's picture

Gotta make sure we follow it up with terrible coverage though.

Tim's picture

Double Nickel looked like he was shot out of a cannon there.

Matt's picture

Here me now and believe me later, Williams will declare for the draft and go in the 2nd round as an OLB prospect in a 3-4

poguemahone's picture

Zacharias "Zach" Zachary Jonathan Malcom "Cam" Cameron "Big Z" Domicone

Buckeyeholicwompa's picture

Whoever that #55 guy is sure is fffffast!!! Put him on the edge all the time!

poguemahone's picture

Jonathan Newsome. You should see how fast he is when he's chasing skirts.

flipbuckeye's picture

USC gets the 2PT and goes up 3.

BuckeyeChief's picture

And we followed up with that.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Irricoir's picture

I am actualy getting bored with complaining about special teams coverage. It's like a scrathed record/CD

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

poguemahone's picture

GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S

Irricoir's picture

Knee slapper!

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Matt's picture

The sack, the FF, and the recovery

Tim's picture

Wow Rolle destroyed Weber there, must have been pissed about getting hurt earlier.

Matt's picture

I think Ray Bentley ate paint chips as a kid

741's picture

I hate when all units get lumped into one category called "special teams" and we think everything is good... Our KO unit (i.e. the KO specialist) is a major liability every week! Sorry to keep harping on this.

Buckeyeholicwompa's picture

Sheesh....did Brian Rolle down a 5 hour energy at half time??? He's on fire!!!

Abuck10's picture

Minny O-line fat and slow

flipbuckeye's picture

Looked like his knee was down...

flipbuckeye's picture

Berry in the doghouse or what?

741's picture

He was in on at least one play last series... But, shit man, give the kid the ball a few times!

Buckeyeholicwompa's picture

Mike Patrick...your vest just blinded me.

Matt's picture

How do these guys get announcer jobs?  What kind of incriminating photos of ESPN executives do these guys have?

Pam's picture

Seriously.  They were talking about the Big Ten rule that a team couldn't go to the Rose Bowl two years in a row!  Wasn't that changed in like 1975? 

KINGOFDAMIDDIE's picture

idiots said pryor couldn't throw short passes because his arm is to long

Pam's picture

At least they admiited it made no sense

741's picture

What a joke TCU and Boise State are even getting a hint of consideration for the BCS national championship game. It's bullshit.

Nonetheless, Fight on SC!

JakeBuckeye's picture

Alright, shoot me for it, but if Oregon loses then Boise State better be number two next week.

741's picture

Of course they will... They blew out the Louisiana Tech Muddogs (er, Bulldogs).

741's picture

What quad injury?

poguemahone's picture

Jordan Hall is a rad dude

Matt's picture

Tress is definitely playing this game to impress voters and bump up that BCS ranking.  Helps that he knows this Horton is a lame duck anyway and running up the score doesn't affect his job security.

Matt's picture

If I have to hear this Sony TV commercial one more time I'm going to flip my shit

JakeBuckeye's picture

Pryor needs three more passing yards to get to 2,000. Doubt he gets any more pass calls though.

I think TP is done for the day. I wonder if Berry is a little banged up. He looked a little shaken after that return.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Torrence better quit hitting with his helmet. I fear injury and a penalty.

Aggressive DEF calls late in the game - nice. Boot on the throat.

It's been fun chatting with you guys.  Gotta go pick up my son from a Halloween party. 

 

Go Bucks!

WAS THAT INTER-TEAM CHEERLEADING FORMATION!??!?! UNACCEPTABLE WE MUST DESTROY THE GOPHER CHEERLEADING SQUAD

You know what? I'm fed up with this. It's unacceptable. I'm fed up with lackadaiscal, uninspired cheerleading, and our cheerleading squad always coming up empty in big games. Our cheerleading coach is just John Cooper with prettier assistants. It's time we tell Lenee Buchman that she needs to hire a new cheer coordinator or pack up her things and leave.

Howard looking gimpy. Hopefully just dehydration/cramping and not permanent.

Denard had exactly 190 yards passing and 190 yards rushing

He is the only thing keeping RichRod in Michigan.  He is a great player and makes games exciting to watch, but when do they start looking at the bigger picture?  RichRod just cannot cut it in the B10.

Hyde looks so promising, just needs to hold onto the ball.
