Well that thread title just invites bad mojo

I like it.  They think we look at them as rivals.

Agreed. We only care about you one week a year State Penn. Get over it.

lol, awesome.  hopefully that is what they are talking about when they say mcgroin has moxie

BuckeyeChief's picture

Legend has it that was all Ted Williams would drink...wouldn't drink soda/ beer/ coffee or smoke cause it would interfere with his hitting.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Deep ball was a nice throw.

BuckeyeChief's picture

On a related note, my girls soccer team smoked our rival 5-0 as revenge for them knocking us out of the tourney 2 weeks ago.

Time for a Tressel Goal.  Field goals have been renamed.

I hope this is just the "rust" being shaken off after the bye week.  Hate to waste that long pass play...

Bobcat04's picture

When are we going to have a good punter again?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Fellas better wake up FAST.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Holding? or is that legal now?

Travis Howard in.  Did we get a db hurt already?

Seemed to work out, though.

jealous because we offered TP and not him, I guess.

God forbid we play against a second-string qb, because he'll beat our ass.

One day Berry is gonna break one.

Now would be a good time.

Johnny Ginter's picture

hahah two stiff arms on one play

Bobcat04's picture

I HATE JB SHUGARTS.

TLB's picture

Better have your armor on.

Bobcat04's picture

Oh, 5 minutes ago, I wouldn't have said that, but I'm pissed.  This is freaking terrible.

Johnny Ginter's picture

boom has to catch that

TLB's picture

Throw was late and across the middle.  Other than that it was ok.

Johnny Ginter's picture

it was in his hands, ergo, he needs to catch it

BuckeyeChief's picture

GD Boom.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

put mcgloin in the hospital now!

BuckeyeChief's picture

Brent is lost.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Johnny Ginter's picture

dude is 71 years old, can you believe that?

Bobcat04's picture

We've got some major problems on defense this year.  Are those injuries hurting us that freaking bad?

Johnny Ginter's picture

the short answer is yes, the "base" formation of this defense is the Star, which is a 4-2-5 formation that relies on really good tackling in space and fast dudes who can cover. pretty much all of the guys who got hurt directly impacted our ability to field this defense, which is why orhian is out there making poor arm tackles

BuckeyeChief's picture

Game is killing me.

cmon penn st WRs are not that good

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

iball's picture

i think our d-line is having a hard time with PSU's snap cadence, they are not firing off the ball

obviously our db's are beaten easily with good timing patterns.

We're going to win this game. I don't know why everyone is freaking out.

Bobcat04's picture

Think Musberger just called him "McGroin"

TLB's picture

Big difference in QB's

iball's picture

the run support from our secondary is almost non-existent. why has torrence regressed so much?

“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

Glad I didn't shell out the money to go.

your kind of a downer dude

Bobcat04's picture

This game is a downer, I'm just watching it.

AJ's picture

hmmm

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

iball's picture

i dont give a shit who's on the field, this team is playing with no heart right now. WTF?

too much thinking not enough playing

“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

Wide freaking open.  Wide open

TLB's picture

And the QB found him.

get in somebody's back pocket torrence

WOW, Devon Torrence is not playing like a senior.

This is like a freaking nightmare.  Nightmare.  

Johnny Ginter's picture

no, WWI was a nightmare. this is ohio state being down by 11 in the second quarter of a football game

Mr. Islay's picture

congrats on saying one of the douche baggiest things i have ever seen on this site. 

condescending prick.

TLB's picture

This kid is a pretty good QB

iball's picture

when your wr's are open by 5 yds every play, even you would look 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

iball's picture

we do nothing to confuse an offense, we line up and stay there, what a joke, he threw that into triple coverage,

“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

I was saying that before they snapped the ball.  We hide nothing.

 

You guys still want Fickel as the next HC?

Johnny Ginter's picture

yeah, i think he'd be a good choice, players like him, gets good recruits, good defensive coordinator, etc

iball's picture

i think fickell is hand cuffed to an extent

“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

playing like a bunch of pussies.

tress is too tight ass to take a gamble, thats why ther wr's are getting 5 yd cushions on 2nd and threes

“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

Ref just said your special teams suck.

iball's picture

chekwa watched that kid run right in front of him, thats just elementary football, you dont let a reciever run a slant inside of you in the endzone

is your abc 22 and fox 45?

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

hmm dont think so

tomcollins's picture

And we are getting outcoached by JoePa.

TLB's picture

See IBall's comment above

Johnny Ginter's picture

uh, in other news auburn is losing 21-7 and TCU is losing 14-0

iball's picture

so JoePa's comment about how OSU shouldn't have lossed to wisky is leading me to believe psu is following wisky's blue print in that game, because this is deja vu.

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

dunno about that, mcgloin has already thrown about as much as tolzien did all that game. their running game is doing about zip, which is why if we can make this close before halftime i wont be too worried

Bobcat04's picture

Ah, but to do that, we need a stop.  

TLB's picture

Pryor cannot make that throw

iball's picture

i have to believe psu's line is getting away with a few holds

“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

There's nothing I can say that won't be construed as stupid, I'm so pissed off right now.  I want to bitch and moan so bad...

tomcollins's picture

3rd and 11, automatic first down.

 

Worst defense of the decade.

AJ's picture

did that just happen

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

Bobcat04's picture

You've gotta be f***ing kidding me!  This defense is getting freaking USED.

iball's picture

larimore is garbage period.....

BuckeyeChief's picture

Wow. He missed a pass.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

This ball control offense of PSU is out tresselballing us.

Bobcat04's picture

How do Penn State's coaches see Bolden as better to start the year?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Wow. a stop on third.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Bobcat04's picture

I'd be happy with giving up a field goal right now.  That's how bad it is.

iball's picture

just watch Larimore, he literally is knocked out of every play, what a turd.

“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

There comes a time when you need to stfu and play ball or pack it up. I think we are passed the talking time. Our D is getting owned, our offense looks like crap. We need what I call a "Keith Hernandez". In other words we need a leader.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

If they score and we can't answer + they get the ball back after the half= getting late early.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

AJ's picture

3rd and 9....i am gonna go on a limb and say....pick six...just go ahead and put it on the board..thanks

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

AJ's picture

a draw that almost picks up the 1st was a close 2nd in mind....

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

TLB's picture

then they wont be throwing at Chimdi

Bobcat04's picture

17.5 points anyone?

iball's picture

all you tressel defenders have to at least admit something is wrong. i dont care about inj's, you were supposedly good enough to garner an osu scholly. we are continually outcoached,

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

really? you don't care about 3 starters in the secondary getting injured and then the secondary *gasp* not looking great?

iball's picture

not looking great? were getting bitch slapped dude

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

not saying we arent, but i am saying that ignoring the injuries is silly

iball's picture

at the very laest we fail to "coach up" back ups, a d1 program shouldn't have this big of a drop off from 1 to 2 or 3 in the DC

“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

Normal Buck's picture

I don't understand how Ohrian Johnson can look so lost out there, so often.  More troubling is that it would seem the staff feels he is prone to be less lost than the other options. 

TLB's picture

He is too loyal to his assistants.

Bobcat04's picture

I agree.  With all the talent he's been able to bring in, we routinely don't look sharp.  To a person, PSU doesn't have near the experienced talent on the field we do, but they look like the 17.5 point faves.

AJ's picture

fine dude ill say it...sweatervests arent "in"...wow that feels good to get off my chest...

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

This is embarrassing.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

tomcollins's picture

Secondary injuries must be why this offense has 3 points and 138 yards.

AJ's picture

finally!!!

okay, this is just flat out wrong, you know better than that

TLB's picture

What!  Somebody made a play

Bobcat04's picture

There's my one positive play.

zekebucks's picture

Not really one to complain, but does Orion know how to tackle???

 

Thomas Zeke White

Bobcat04's picture

Now you will see Tressel's asshole tighten up...

iball's picture

pryor has to run, you have to make psu worry about his legs, if not then why the hell does he play? hes a terrible passer

“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

zekebucks's picture

Yep, nothing like exposing a weakness in their defense... Sometimes I think that there is a cocky attitude that the staff has that has bitten us in much needed national games...

Thomas Zeke White

Johnny Ginter's picture

alright, completely fair to get pissed about that sequence, holy crap

zekebucks's picture

Nice play call for a big play before the half

Thomas Zeke White

Bobcat04's picture

Good job Jim!  Gotta love that Tressel.  Always trying to win.

tomcollins's picture

He's learning from Bob Stoops.  Try to not lose by a lot, that way the voters won't hate on you as much.

TLB's picture

Wouldnt have to if the QB could throw.

iball's picture

no crossing route, no timin patterns, five to ten yard cushions and tp cant get the ball there on time,

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

hey iball, serious question, is there something goofy with drupal for you? you seem to be getting cut off here

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

If TP would have given Sanzo time, but he gave up and checked down too quick.

Bobcat04's picture

Lord, and we couldn't at least eat up the time with that drive?  It took 3 seconds.

AJ's picture

ok man we had some open WRs...is pryor afraid to throw over the middle...or to the sidelines...this is high school playcalling

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

iball's picture

tp has no short passing game, its either throw deep or dump it.

“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

43.8 punting average at least... Positive!!!

Thomas Zeke White

AJ's picture

heeeeeey OHHHH!!! count it...i may be drunk

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

tomcollins's picture

At this point I hope we lose at Iowa badly, somehow find a way to beat Michigan, then end up with a bowl opponent who is terrible so we at least have a shot.

TLB's picture

That half was more frustrating than Wisky

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

In my opinion TP is checking down way to quick.  I do not blame the short passes on the coaches, TP is checking down and avoiding the middle.

AJ's picture

thats kinda what i said

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

Buckeye Black's picture

Wouldn't you if the line keeps playing like that.

Buckeye Black's picture

That was the worst offensive half I have seen.

iball's picture

all in all, i think we still get back in this game, but our overall consistency baffles me, how do we seem so well prepared at times, then turn around amd look like this.

i think the qb position battle should be open this off-season, pryor has got to earn something, for once in his life. too comfy back there

“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

Johnny Ginter's picture

bye week curse. seriously though, i do agree with you on the second point, why we arent doing more playaction is beyond me. TP needs to be moving. i have zero problem with continuing to run herron, but we need to get more creative with our passing

tomcollins's picture

We look good when we play absolutely awful teams.

We look bad when we play any team with a pulse.

AJ's picture

i dont remember playing zombies...i wouldnt watch that either though, i hate zombies

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

TLB's picture

Here's the positive................Joe might regret not taking a FG there.

Normal Buck's picture

Had the same thought.  Sure hope you're right on that one.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Alright, this is frustrating. This is the Horseshoe.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Well, going into halftime we have to stop Penn State on the opening drive. Or at least hold them to a field goal. If they score a touchdown then this game is over and the season labeled a big time disappointment.

Johnny Ginter's picture

yeah, that first drive is absolutely critical

iball's picture

no heart on this team, tress recruits one star at each position and hands them the starting job for 4 years, nobody plays like their job depends on it. competition breeds success, there is no competiition on the osu practice field, pryor posey, adams, shugart, boren, brewster, torrence, chekwa are all spoiled. thats why little guys like sanzo and anthony gonzalez always seem to emerge as "surprise" players, because they have to work for it.

“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

"tress recruits one star at each position and hands them the starting job for 4 years"

 

Huh?

iball's picture

got that from a former player and close friend, you got a better source, or a comeback other than huh?

“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

Name a freshman starter on this team that didn't get it due to injury... How about last year? The year before that (TP's been the only one for A WHILE)?

Johnny Ginter's picture

i agree, he definitely did that with brian rolle, cam heyward, john simon, ross homan, devon torrence, tyler moeller, sanzo, stoneburner, fragel, herron, etc

AJ's picture

is the former player...aj hawk...cos thatd be cool and you and me would go out for drinks

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

Bobcat04's picture

I just don't know what is going through Tressel's head at a time like that, with 1:40 to play or so.  Is he trying to fold it in for the second half, or does he really think that stuff is going to work? 

Johnny Ginter's picture

an honest answer is that he thinks we can still win the game, but a turnover at that point in the half would pretty much kill the game and Tressel doesn't want to risk it, so he only calls safe plays

THATS WHAT I TELL THE GIRLS WHO I MEET IN THE AOL CHAT ROOMS BUT THEY REFUSE TO SEND ME PICS ALL THE SAME

maybe they are actually dudes but dont want to be found out?

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

Bobcat04's picture

And maybe Pryor would be more prepared without the Assistant Video Coordinator as qb coach.  Still not sold on that one when you want to develop so much potential.

Bobcat04's picture

OK...so PSU made one change, and it made their offense and defense both better.  What change would you make to gain any measure of consistency in this OSU team?  Remember that Bauserman is awful.  Go...

Johnny Ginter's picture

is the answer fire jim tressel?

Bobcat04's picture

No man, I'm not trying to be super reactionary with this.  Just Amazed that McGroin turned this PSU team into one that is handling us on the road, and wonder if we could be missing a quick fix similarly.

Johnny Ginter's picture

no, it's a secondary thing. i tried to explain it earlier, but we're running a defense without the players to run it. no quick fixes here

alright so then the answer is quite clear to me...find the players to run it...i mean cmon am i the only one here using my brain...

Bobcat04's picture

I mean, how does a qb change, especially one that isn't really a runner/scrambler make your crappy offensive line block well all of a sudden?  And your defense get stops the first time all year?

Johnny Ginter's picture

oh, i see what you're saying. you're right, QB change does nothing. the playcalling has been poor on passing, i dont think anyone can argue otherwise

JakeBuckeye's picture

We should bench Pryor and fire Tressel. Sounds good to me.

AJ's picture

personally i would try to blackmail peyton manning into QBing us...then i would pay cam newton and his father to help anyway possible...

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

iball's picture

first off, i would let pryor play outside of the pocket, yeah and runnin an end around or something else than in between the tackles may help.

You know, I am feeling kind of sick right now. I am very disappointed with our offense and our secondary comes in a close second on the list. I am not trying to bring the doom and gloom and will likely take the brunt of and angry Buckeye crowd looking for an outlet but this game has me feeling Wisconsin all over again. That is not something we are accustomed to or should get used to feeling. We are playing not to lose and failing at that. Lets keep our running game strong, get some momentum and get TP feeling "It" again. Then start incorporating the pass. Just my two cents. Heres to hoping JT can turn it around. No where close to calling for his head but ultimately I am disapointed.

We have done well running off tackles. Where is that at?

Please Basil, kick it through the damn endzone.  The last thing we need is a blown kick coverage.

Crowd is still hard behind us.

This is an old fashioned ass whoopin.

I don't think it's a question anymore.  This year's d-line is nowhere near as good as last year's

BuckeyeChief's picture

FLAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Johnny Ginter's picture

woah holy crap, that is an AWFUL non call

Joe Beale's picture

Don't you know that one step to the left constitutes "outside of the tackle box"?  sheesh

that is grounding sir

Refusal by refs to call drive-killers on PSU

BuckeyeChief's picture

This is going back to a typical Buckeyes vs. other team + refs... their O line is getting a lot of breaks...

OK TP.........here comes your legacy

You have got to be freaking kidding.  PSU can do no wrong.  Even punting

that should have been fair caught

Bobcat04's picture

GOD ALMIGHTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess we were too far off the goal line, gotta back it up more.  Way to go line.

false start after a commercial break?

Senior leadership at its best.

Herren stopped running

Johnny Ginter's picture

JT chompin hard

Joe Beale's picture

Good point by Brent; Sparty pulling hard against us.

Luke's picture

FIRST DOWN! A REAL LIFE FLESH AND BLOOD FIRST DOWN! OMG

Johnny Ginter's picture

alright, that worked

tomcollins's picture

Herron the only player out there who is trying, just like Wisconsin.

TLB's picture

Attention Time Warner Cabl Subscribers..........................

Bobcat04's picture

Boom's vision has improved 110% this year.

Bobcat04's picture

Saine, however, will still run into blockers.

TLB's picture

As they get shoved backwards.

Johnny Ginter's picture

yeah that was bad

AJ's picture

somethings has to work

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

TLB's picture

Little white dude just called out Pryor

AJ's picture

someone has to support the whites on the football field

Joe Beale's picture

We need to score from here.  The last thing this team needs is another trip to the red zone.

Johnny Ginter's picture

here's why i'll defend the hell out of TP: on boom's run, he was running his ass up the field, looking for a dude to block. love it.

Johnny Ginter's picture

coming out punching

TLB's picture

Six here..............we win the game.

 

FG, probably not

Bobcat04's picture

Tough run, Brandon Saine!!!!!!

TLB's picture

Thats a tremendous run!!

BuckeyeChief's picture

Okay, let's just keep running the ball.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Joe Beale's picture

Oh no....1st and goal.  That means we need some push from the line.  I'm going to hide behind the sofa.

Joe Beale's picture

It worked!!!  You guys can thank me later.

Bobcat04's picture

You better be behind there the rest of the game!

tomcollins's picture

There's no way we hold this lead.  Torrence sucks.

KenK's picture

yeah, except for the pick-6

Johnny Hooker: "He's not as tough as he thinks". Henry Gondorff: "Neither are we".

AJ's picture

in this moment i am semi happy...we are still down

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

and still semi tipsy

Line responsible for that TD

TLB's picture

#44 with the lead block

tomcollins's picture

Sweet, team starts to improve every time I get negative, and chokes when I get overconfident!

I say we are gonna lose this by 30 and Michigan will score 100 on us.

Joe Beale's picture

I'm right there with you Tom.  

Johnny Ginter's picture

98 yards, how's that for toughness?

Joe Beale's picture

Zach Boren has enough toughness for the whole team.

Johnny Ginter's picture

i love that kid, man we lucked out on him

Bobcat04's picture

I have to admit being skeptical (who, me?!).  But he's all win.

Johnny Ginter's picture

truthfully i was too, i'm always skeptical when you have a brother of a guy or a legacy or something like that

TLB's picture

Atta baby!  Ohio State football.  Shove down their damn throat.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Turnover or three and out is a must.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Johnny Ginter's picture

well, zero points at minimum.

Irricoir's picture

Now something a little different than the Wisconsin game. A defensive stop please!

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Body builder right? I got a question for you...best way to contact you?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Where are all the haters who hate the play calling?  Its all about execution.

Buckeye in Athens's picture

Please, defense... 3 and out here

Joe Beale's picture

Good thing I changed my shirt at halftime.  I blame my wife for scheduling pictures today.  

AJ's picture

ya we give that up every time....

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

Bobcat04's picture

Nice contain, d ends

Bobcat04's picture

The play action is coming...

TLB's picture

Every offensive line we play is better than ours.

Joe Beale's picture

You're right...I'm so tired of hearing about how the opposing team "is really controlling the line of scrimmage".  It makes me ill.

Johnny Ginter's picture

ZZZZZZZZZAAAAAPPP

TLB's picture

HOT DAMN SHOTS ALL AROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!

AJ's picture

torrence just made me eat my words hard....i hang my head in shame

Can't wait to see the meltdown on BSD if we hold on to win.  Should be epic.

Johnny Ginter's picture

defense smells blood

JoshAlum's picture

Defense finally playing with some energy.

TLB's picture

Teams change jerseys at half?

 

Or maybe Tress did a little ass chewin

BuckeyeChief's picture

Or punched a chalkboard?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

that was a hell of a pass.

Bobcat04's picture

DAMN that was lucky...

Johnny Ginter's picture

boom has 100 yards again yaaaaay!

Bobcat04's picture

Leg still bothering TP?

AJ's picture

he doesnt liked to be hit

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

TLB's picture

LOL, they are talking Pryor and all he has done is hand off.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

The way TP initiates contact he is going to get hurt.  It looks like he lets the contact come to him.

Johnny Ginter's picture

nice run by saine

Bobcat04's picture

Need to keep this drive alive...

Johnny Ginter's picture

boom having a terrific game

JoshAlum's picture

I love that we were able to run for a 1st when they knew it was coming. Been a long time since we've seen that consistently.

Joe Beale's picture

How's that for controlling the line of scrimmage, Herbie!!!

Bobcat04's picture

Getting monster push now.  Still behind the couch, Joe?

Joe Beale's picture

Yes, and it's working like a charm!

Bobcat04's picture

Blow that after the play is halfway through?

AJ's picture

wellllp...

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

tomcollins's picture

Terrible.  We needed points there.

Bobcat04's picture

So much for going away from the run...

AJ's picture

he was late on the throw...

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

TLB's picture

when is he not?

AJ's picture

haha

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

Joe Beale's picture

We probably would have run the ball if not for the false start.

Bobcat04's picture

A 3 and out when when needed it...

TLB's picture

nice job d.  NICE JOB D!

Bobcat04's picture

DAMN YOU BRYANT BROWNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bobcat04's picture

I can't wait till he graduates.

Joe Beale's picture

Where were all the first half penalties on PSU's blocking?  

Bobcat04's picture

This has been a pretty one-sided officiating affair.

TLB's picture

Geez, now he's gonna throw

Joe Beale's picture

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TLB's picture

MORE HOT DAMN ALL AROUND!!!!!!!!!!

AJ's picture

the psu defender was about to get up and start celebrating

God's way of saying that hold was bulls**it.

This one is f'n over.  Hope McGroin looks at that OSU bench again.

I am going to toast me a glass of Moxie to you Mr. Mussberger.

Covering the spread!!!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Buckeye in Athens's picture

I know it's a bit early, but I think we may be ok with travis Howard as the starting corner next year. 

 

/understatement

tomcollins's picture

Told you guys not to worry, we'd cover the spread.

matti's picture

that is defensive moxy!!!!

Joe Beale's picture

Did Brent just say that McGloin was facing "a crusher" just now?  Did he mean "The Crusher"?

TLB's picture

Best. Post. Ever.

Irricoir's picture

Earlier I said this looked like the Wisconsin game of this year. I meant the Wisconsin game of last year. Go Bucks!

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

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Wheres the guy that was killing Fickell as a coach earlier?  

TLB's picture

dont know, but he looks like a dumb ass now.

Nik's picture

Was that Howard or Johnson with the second pick?  I thought it was #19 (OJ) but espn is saying Howard (18)

Nik's picture

sweet, that's 13 guys with a pick this year, talk about depth!

Boom Herron may get 200 one game after he gets his first 100...

Damn!  Even the line is playing well now.

Bobcat04's picture

Is it me, or is Mike Adams starting to look like a good run blocker?

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Where has Debbie Downer..errrr BOBCAT04 gone?  That guy was killing the coaches, the players, everyone.  He needs to eat his crow. 

Bobcat04's picture

What in the hell are you talking about?  Are you drunk?  I've been here all game.  Not hiding, football guru.

Joe Beale's picture

I predict that picture of McGloin on the bench looking sad will get some play.

Bobcat04's picture

You wanna make a shirt about it?

Joe Beale's picture

Nah, we don't stoop to their level.

TLB's picture

If you dont have Directv, you should.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Wow that TCU victory over Utah doesnt look so good now.

Oh the indignity...Bauserman is in.  How about that, Penn State fans?

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

If you look up moxie in the dictionary you will see that picture.

Buckeye in Athens's picture

This was one of my favorite games as a fan. Absolute dominance in the second half. Perfect coaching/player adjustments on D. Pounding running game. Classic for me. 

Irricoir's picture

Great Job Buckeyes. I have to go heal from the heartburn in the first half though. Way to show some MOXY!

Adam from BSD called "Game" after the ricochet TD catch by Dane.  Good to see we helped them get to bed early.
