How good are these Buckeyes?  Seems to be all anyone wants to know these days.

Tonight, another chance to prove themselves, but it won't be easy. Camp Randall has "blackslide" written all over it.

Hope you enjoyed your afternoon of football. It's time to get serious.

Some mood music:

Boise, Oregon, Alabama and Nebraska all have shot at that NCG, so that's right in line... Except scratch Nebraska....

iball's picture

That was before Nebraska got their reality check today. Cam Newton is making a strong ass case for Heisman.

I was hoping Big Red would dominate that conference before they stepped out to join the Big Ten.

Tim's picture

Beat Wisconsin!  Yeeeeeeah!

poguemahone's picture

I had a feeling that would happen

Tim's picture

Must have watched the Florida game and wanted to try a different tactic to start out.

Jason Priestas's picture

Let's hope for the same ending.

Buckeye_in_ATL's picture

Got that out of the way...

BuckeyeChief's picture

Off to a rousing start.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Yay, we didn't give up the double whammy

iball's picture

bad punt

“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

poguemahone's picture

I missed the fumble, was that Herron's derp or Pryor's?

definitely 2 holds on the KR, watched the replay already

BuckeyeChief's picture

Ughhh

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

Hm

This vexes me. I'm terribly vexed.

Michael's picture

Apparently we have no rush defense.

Bobcat04's picture

Wow.  At least we can make Indiana look bad...

poguemahone's picture

Hey Wisconsin

Ya gotta let Tolzien loose

dr green's picture

We're going to get slaughtered.

Michael's picture

Why are we not just stuffing the box? Do we really think Tolzien is going to win it for them?

Bobcat04's picture

Looks that way.  I hate Wisconsin.

Tim's picture

Hankins in for some 5-2? 

Bobcat04's picture

Guess we just aren't ready for the big time.  

poguemahone's picture

I think that's my cue to leave the thread

iball's picture

lil early there chief

when did Dayne show up?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Welp, a true Champion will rise up.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

you're stepping into manhood, again

“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

onager's picture

The game is, for all practical purposes, over. We have played a weak schedule and are not prepared for this sort of team.

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

Jason Priestas's picture

Man, a lot of time left for that kind of talk.

Michael's picture

There's still plenty of time and they've only had one scoring drive; not over by a long shot.

iball's picture

well turn off your tv and your computer and go to bed, that shit dont fly here

“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

Tim's picture

It's funny how Pryor just jogged through their defense for like 20 yards, no one close to him.

Jason Priestas's picture

Still looks like he's not quite 100%, but even at 90%, he's a pretty awesome weapon.

dr green's picture

Wisky ready for the pass? Too bad our best RB has a gimpy quad

Bobcat04's picture

Have we tried a run with a RB yet?

tomcollins's picture

Pryor getting rattled, not a good thing when that happens.  Please make it to halftime within one score.

jbev's picture

coaching is always going to be a problem. I truly believe our assisants coaches suck. how can special teams be that bad

Jason Priestas's picture

That's just not a smart thing to say right now. Let this one play out. Not every outing is going to be a walk.

iball's picture

jbev, go away

“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

Tim's picture

He's got it, hands keep control on it.

iball's picture

his fingers were under the ball

“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

Bobcat04's picture

Not one thing has gone right.  Not one.

Abuck10's picture

Is this a nightmare?

Bobcat04's picture

Seriously.  If we lose I at least wish that we would make them earn it.  Make it competitive!

Tim's picture

Disagree, ball can touch ground if the player keeps their hands on it.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Our D needs to step up now.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Tim's picture

I bet Clay might run it up the middle once or twice.

iball's picture

we're gonna stop the run, take a lead, make Scotty throw, and win the game

“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

dr green's picture

And, then you"ll wake up

iball's picture

must be a sparty

“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

dr green's picture

Nope. I bleed scarlet and gray. Just hope I'll wake up soon

onager's picture

The ground arguably assisted him in controlling the ball. At. Least we have them pinned in closr.

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

iball's picture

would all bucknutz members go back to your holes?

“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

onager's picture

Time for a turnover.

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

Michael's picture

Wisconsin is running three plays and we can't stop any of them.

iball's picture

hats off to wisky, executing perfectly, won't be enough though

“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

This is ridiculous

BuckeyeChief's picture

If they take this 89 yds and score...

Yeah, I'd take some adversity over a walk any day.

How far will we fall?
Somewhere Mark May is smiling. SMH.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

We will fall out of the polls. The Shoe will be burned to the ground. We will close down the football program.

 

It's BASKETBALL SEASON, guys! 

iball's picture

larimore is out of every fucking play, period

“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

poguemahone's picture

I pity the fool writing the recap for this game if we don't turn this around.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Well guys, sorry. I didn't have termites discovered, my car didn't break down teice this week, and my sewage pipe didn't clog and back into my house this week, all of which have happened this season so far. No plague= a loss?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

I did all my bizarre pre-game rituals this week, too

onager's picture

Toobad about Hummel. Too bad about the Bucks. I didn't. See this coming.

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten!

Pam's picture

If they score again I am taking another one, which will knock me out nicely until College Gameday Final. 

dr green's picture

We were screwed 14 pts ago

tomcollins's picture

Na, a kickoff return is something that's pretty expected.  Just come back down the field and kick them in the teeth and it's a game.

The good news is I think we figured out how to stop that up the middle run.  The bad news is I'm not sure we can put up 21 points the rest of the game.

BuckeyeChief's picture

EVERY FUCKING YEAR. i am fucking sick.My wife's fucking friends are calling to see if i have broke my tv.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

dr green's picture

LOL. Maybe you should, Chief. Could be the catastrophe that saves us

Bobcat04's picture

We go down 21-0 and it's over.

poguemahone's picture

See you in the recap thread, right? 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Bielema is going for the jugular. Game over.

sorry jason, may have to log off tonight. My IQ is dropping with every comment I read.

man...what happened...

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

Tim's picture

Why do we throw deep to the #4 WR?

Jason Priestas's picture

That one is a head scratcher.

Tim's picture

That is all we have, Pryor running.

iball's picture

nice play 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

BOOM, veteran steppin up

Tim's picture

Grabbing both shoulders from behind on a tackle is a horse collar, right?

Pam's picture

I think we getting somewhere, I wll hold off on the second Xanax

Jason Priestas's picture

Our ball to start the second, too.

Bobcat04's picture

That's what I'm praying for...

Bobcat04's picture

Need a touchdown here.  No FGs.

741's picture

No f'ing FG please god.

iball's picture

Pryor has to pass outside the pocket

“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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Come on...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Tim's picture

Pryor QB sneak twice.

poguemahone's picture

Well, that was an obvious call

BuckeyeChief's picture

Go for it....

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Tim's picture

Nice, that didn't work on 1st down, so let's run the same damn play.

Bobcat04's picture

"ole field goal JT" is at it again.  Least it's not a shutout.

iball's picture

bobcat, you are never on this board until now, I don't want you as a fellow fan, go away

“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

Bobcat04's picture

Sorry bro.  Though it does seem that when there are a few negative posters, I'm always the one that gets told off.  What gives?

iball's picture

horrible play calls, how fucking hard is it to call a bootleg?

“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

way to get creative on the play calls there

RedQueenRace's picture

Only 6 more  FGs and we have a new game.

Michael's picture

I hate the decision, but it's the right one. If Wisconsin stops us on 4th and Goal, that's just that much more momentum against us.

Baby steps.

dr green's picture

Time for the Special Teams and D to step into manhood

Tim's picture

Boom Herron wildcat worked against Indiana, and that was the only time it worked all season.  Unless he's going to throw it to Pryor or do something different, it should not be run against Wisconsin.

Bobcat04's picture

Waiting on that defensive stand...

741's picture

With this kick off unit, sometimes settling for the FG equates to -4 points.

poguemahone's picture

I just about had a heart attack.

Pam's picture

I hate this shit.

Bobcat04's picture

That hole was big enough that grandma could have got 5 yards...

Pam's picture

Will we even be ranked after this?  Do we deserve to be?

iball's picture

Not seeing any cam/nathan stunts

“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 wisky starts playin not to lose

“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

poguemahone's picture

Wooo 

Late hit too! 

741's picture

Finally - a break goes our way.

Tim's picture

Tolzien finally pays for a terrible throw.  Hines and Torrence missed the first two.

iball's picture

where ya at miserable fans? WHERE YA AT????

“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

poguemahone's picture

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Let's not get cute

iball's picture

nervous time for wisky!!

“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

That was Tressel scoffing at us for calling the goal line plays not creative.

iball's picture

get him out of the pocket tress!!!

“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

Pryor looks like Troy did in the 2006 NC game. Happy feet, jittery, poor throws.

dr green's picture

Not how i wanted it defined. Thank you Shugarts

pbland's picture

everybody is playing like shit

Tim's picture

Pryor run seems like our only chance of a first down here.  He's locking in on Posey when the pressure is on-- not good.

poguemahone's picture

Shugarts got embarrassed

Bobcat04's picture

INT=field goal=worthless.

Bobcat04's picture

Sorry, we didn't even get that.

iball's picture

shugarts shit the bed

You're going to get a lot of hate from the chicken littles.

dr green's picture

And, monkeys will fly out of my butt.

dr green's picture

Don't like my brand of sarcasm, Sam? I'm just venting. I still hope we win this thing

poguemahone's picture

No, you don't. You're actively rooting for the team to lose so all your little complaints will seem vindicated.

dr green's picture

I'll give you whining, but not actively rooting for a loss

dr green's picture

I think John Clay shoved them up there

iball's picture

why in the world do you force a runner like Pryor to stand still?

“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

Tim's picture

Yay penalties on them are really starting to pour in.

Sean N's picture

Most important thing is not to give up more points this half

Tim's picture

MAKE THEM PUNT!

iball's picture

let 7 seconds roll off, THEN call a TO ?????

“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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Well, it's only 18 points. We better regroup.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Wouldn't it be sweet if we could run this back...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Bobcat04's picture

No one deep.  If we come out in the 2nd and score, I'll feel a lot better.

Tim's picture

Watch the fake...  That's all we need to complete this half.  I don't like having no one back.

iball's picture

did it in '02

“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

I like this comment. I think it deserves a prize.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Agreed.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

WTF?!?!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

iball's picture

ok, lets not even try, good strategy

Bobcat04's picture

Was that negative?!?

iball's picture

not trying pisses me off, so yes, it was

“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

poguemahone's picture

Well

Fallout: New Vegas comes out Tuesday

so that's good news

Jason Priestas's picture

Pryor could use a Pip Boy.

Bobcat04's picture

Great, and Mark May at halftime.  It's been 30 years since Pitt has been good enough to even be a blip on the "National Stage"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Jimmy needs to punch a fucking chalkboard.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

He is going to lightly toss a clipboard, then pick it up

iball's picture

then apologize to the clip board

“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

Pam's picture

He might even have a hair out of place.  That't when you know he is really pissed

Abuck10's picture

They need spielman there to do it.....a little more intimating

dr green's picture

Agreed. I watched a College Football Live 7 weeks or so back and they had on Chris Carter and Spiels. Carter was terrified of Spiels. Cringed when Spiels went to pat him on the back.

Pam's picture

Have we pulled a rabbit out of the hat down this much?  Please tell we have. 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Allright Berry...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Pam's picture

That gives me hope. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Ugly, ugly half, obviously, but it's far from over.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Okay, what's next?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

buckeyejonross's picture

jonny hankins needs to be in the game all second half. i still am confident we will win, but shit they need a berry bomb on the kick return and some momentum. lets fucking go.

can't bare to watch the half time show, in the meantime...hey the jackets are winning

 

we aren't a completely mediocre sports state yet

poguemahone's picture

The Jackets don't count. Or maybe I'm just bitter about my Bengals being so incredibly terrible.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Classic. We get Herron going big time via the pistol formation, then come three chances to stick the ball into the endzone. I guess running the pistol down there once or twice would have been too easy?

iball's picture

playcalling is shit, but the d-line is losing the game for us

“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

JakeBuckeye's picture

Down 21-7 getting the ball first in the second half sounds fantastic to me at this point.

iball's picture

except were down 21-3

“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

JakeBuckeye's picture

Exactly. Hence my anger at the calls down on the goal line.

AJ's picture

thats not the only thing...

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

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

Unless Pryor comes out of panic mode, all is lost - He is throwing like he did as a freshman, and running like he is afraid of contact.  Not a pretty picture.

Bobcat04's picture

Pryor is going to have to start finding people, or it's going to be rough.  People can talk about his improvement all they want against Indiana. 

AJ's picture

we get...pryor needs to step...we need to score more points then them...its not over till its over, the fat lady hasnt sung....and so forth

I've never witnessed an Ohio State game where the defense was to blame for loss just as much as the offense...I really hope that day doesn't turn out to be today, but it's sure looking like it.

poguemahone's picture

You must be new. Florida, LSU come to mind.

BuckeyeChief's picture

+1

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

I just can't bring myself to "+1" somebody right now.

Colin's picture

I am new, but I recall the heisman winning QB getting almost nothing against Florida.

iball's picture

we got em right where we want them, wisky is a classic choke team, right Rob Reynolds??

“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

We need to choke John Clay and his ridiculous Brohawk.

AJ's picture

i actually think thats funny...

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

Bobcat04's picture

By that, I mean "choke him with suffocating defense".

The Optimists are touchy tonight, Bobcat

Not trying to be a super downer, but there's not much to cheer for so far.

poguemahone's picture

Right, because you can only cheer when the team's winning? 

JakeBuckeye's picture

I've never taken the negative approach, but we aren't going to win this game. Prove me wrong, but down 21-3 at half with Jim Tressel (still love him) as your coach is not a winnable football game.

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

I am inclined to agree with you, but I think it has more to do with Pryor's reversion to bad decision making and poor mechanics that will doom us.

KCAlum's picture

The player that the douchebag doctor in the Sprint commercial is telling him that he is out for the season needs to get up off the table and punch that dr square in the face

Bucknut-in-the-South's picture

Our only hope is in establishing the run - Boom had a good first half.  Let TP breathe a little and he may recover his composure.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Well, if we keep this up we can get the SEC monkey off our back in the Citrus Bowl!

Wisconsin is killing us on the Gilreath end around fake.  They obviously predicted correctly that we'd be keying on it so they went one step deeper in the play and are faking it, then gashing us with the interior run.

DBs should probably cover somebody before the nights over.

We have to stop the run somehow without Homan.

Need something great to happen early in the second half to have any chance.

lhardeman's picture

I can't watch the game, but it seems like the problems that have forever plagued us are still doing it from the comments, with the exception of the defense not playing well.  Offensively if our line can't get a decent push and protect our qb we have no chance of winning.  Another special teams touchdown return?  Are you serious?  Once again where is the leadership?  We can pull this game out, but only if a player decides to stand up and say,"Enough is enough."  We have to have someone getting in some asses in order to kick start this team.  GO BUCKS!

Blake, you can call me a moron all day long, but the evidence speaks for itself - against weak teams, he dominates.  Against a real defense, facing the pressure of losing, he tends to panic and either rush his throws or make the wrong read.  I am a die hard fan, and I think he is a great athlete and an excellent young man, but he has yet to prove consistently that he can lead this team to victory in difficult circumstances.  I may be a moron, but I have watched enough football to know what I am seeing.

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

Blake's picture

He's not an elite passer, but to say he's not a big-time qb is moronic. He's won more than enough big games since he's been here. What the hell were you doing during the rose bowl? What were you doing when he helped us go 3-0 vs penn state, iowa, and michigan at the end of last year? Just because he's not sam bradford doesn't mean he's not a big-time qb. If he wasn't our qb, we'd be lucky to get 7 wins. He's pretty much been our entire offense at times.

 

Also, learn how to use the reply button.
