GameDay/Erin Andrews (PAGEVIEWS), Early Open Thread

There's nothing quite like pandering for cheap hits (no I didn't say what you think I said...)

Even with the Buckeyes off, there's still more than enough reasons to fire up the frying pan, throw some bacon on, whip up some eggs, and make some mean breakfast tacos while you chase Friday night off with a bloody mary or a strong cup of black coffee.

The noon slate is actually a bit more intriguing than ordinary (and certainly ripe with Big Ten-liciousness). When the headache and existential anxiety is finally gone, grab a Great Lakes Christmas Ale/Bud Light/Pibber (you dirty Short Northers) and join us as we delight in Wolverine schadenfreude and root for Vanderbilt to end their streak against Florida.

Michigan looks like their normal self thus far and Purdue is going to hang with Whisky.

Richrod loves the predator style

Way off.  I mean Wisky scores a FG to make it 7-3.

flipbuckeye's picture

Impressive play by Illinois.

flipbuckeye's picture

Purdue up 10-3 approaching the end of the 1st half.

WUT

Poe McKnoe's picture

Erin Andrews is the f-ing bomb.

JakeBuckeye's picture

No, Brian Griese, this is not the new Big Ten. This is two coaches who will be fired in a matter of years trying to get a win.

Wiscky picks prudont off.....sad

tomcollins's picture

Bigger moron for in game decisions: Zook or Miles?

JakeBuckeye's picture

This might turn out to be a day from hell. Wisconsin escaping Purdue and Indiana beating our potential signature win Iowa. Crap.

flipbuckeye's picture

Going into the 4th, Indiana up 13-9 on Iowa.  Wow.

JakeBuckeye's picture

HAHAHAHAH OMG OMG OMG Rich Rodriguez pulls Robinson and puts Forcier in. Forcier throws an interception, first play! This is just too great.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Haha Forcier

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

JakeBuckeye's picture

I guess it was a fumble that slipped out of his hand while trying to pass. Still hilarious.

BuckeyeChief's picture

The D in this game is awful!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

For RichRod's sake, Denard better be hurt.  Otherwise, between the FG call and putting Tate in, he must WANT to get fired.

Johnny Ginter's picture

there is no way denard is not hurt, tater has looked far far better this year than he did last year but you would have to literally be a child with no understanding of football to take out denard for no reason

flipbuckeye's picture

I wouldn't put ANYTHING past RichRod.

Johnny Ginter's picture

i would put that past him, come on dude

KCAlum's picture

Michigan behind again

KCAlum's picture

Taint is back in

BuckeyeChief's picture

Have ya'll heard from Jason in India? How is he?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Johnny Ginter's picture

last we heard he was trying to find the sankara stones and bring the favor of the gods back to a small town in the mountains

TLB's picture

No way our QB could do what Stanzi just did.

JakeBuckeye's picture

HAHAHAHAHAAHAH. My God, if our quarterback was in a game playing against Indiana having to come back down 9-13 I can't even imagine what people like you would say.

TLB's picture

I would say put him at TE, WR or DE..........as I have said all along.

Johnny Ginter's picture

ahahah yes. (TP is having the best QB passer rating year of any OSU QB, ever, btw)

TLB's picture

And when needed the most he was awful.

JakeBuckeye's picture

And when was this? Rose Bowl? No. Wisconsin? That loss is on the defense and special teams.

poguemahone's picture

Hard to win when your defense and ST give up 31 points to a team running about six different plays.

Johnny Ginter's picture

no i totally agree, obviously we shoulda kept troy smith at RB, i mean yeah he beat michigan or whatever but way to lay an egg against florida. he really sucked

Johnny Ginter's picture

oh yeah, and he totally blew it against PSU.

poguemahone's picture

Yeah, when he was needed most in 2005, where was Troy Smith? Justin Zwick had national champion written all over him

Johnny Ginter's picture

troy smith = BAD QUARTERBACK

you know who never ever failed to meet expectations? steve bellisari. hell yeah. loved that guy.

TLB's picture

Never liked Zwick, even coming out of high school he had too much of a tendancy to overthrow his guys.

And Bellisari.....ugh.  I hated him because his brother couldn't tackle anyone in Biakabutuka.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Then we could have Joe Bauserman come in! Yes, the white quarterback must automatically be a better passer right? I would not be surprised if you were a racist bigot. Anybody who thinks Joe Bauserman is a better passer than Terrelle is truly what I call a racist and/or an idiot.

edit: don't do this.

-johnny

TLB's picture

Thats right, someone disagrees with you so you resort to name calling.  Nice.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Sorry, have you seen Joe Bauserman play? Have you? Really?

TLB's picture

I dont recall asking for Bauserman.  All I am saying is that Stanzi is a better QB than ours.

As is Tolzein

and Kirk Cousin

and maybe Sheelhouse

Maybe we should have recruited a backup

 

And judging by that last pass, Forcier is not.

Johnny Ginter's picture

i find it hard to take this comment seriously when you spelled those last 3 QB's names incorrectly. some good trolling here though, nice job

TLB's picture

haha.  but they are better.

JakeBuckeye's picture

You're right, if we cut off Terrelle's legs then all of those other than the Illinois dude and Scott Tolzien are better quarterbacks than Pryor. Its just too bad it would be frowned upon to cut off someone's legs.

TLB's picture

Might miss his legs.  His arms, not so much.

blazers34's picture

I dont know how much you follow recruiting, but they have tried pretty damn hard to recruit a back up.

 

Anyway, TP is fine.  Criticizing play is one thing, but im giddy as a lark that he is our QB.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Taj Boyd seems to be working out really well for Clemson.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

blazers34's picture

uhhh, thats a bit of a leap into calling someone a racist.  it would make them an idiot though

JakeBuckeye's picture

Racist is probably bad judgement, but there's just no reason for any buckeye fan that has watched this season to believe that Bauserman is the better option at quarterback other then, well I won't go there again.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Sorry Johnny. You probably don't want some of my crap on this already fine and great blog. I say things I probably shouldn't say to the negative part of our fanbase, and I usually end up using bad judgement when trying to counter them.

Johnny Ginter's picture

it's fine, i mean, the dude is saying some pretty goofy stuff here, but bringing racism into this is silly when he hasn't said anything of the sort. plus his arguments aren't exactly what i would call rock solid you can knock em down in plenty of other ways

blazers34's picture

holy shit!  i think he dropped that! 

TLB's picture

That ball was right in his dick-skinners

blazers34's picture

damn, he did.  good for OSU, I Guess. 

 

Hard to believe this IU team could even hang with Iowa

TLB's picture

I cant believe the TCU-Utah game is on CBS College Sports channel

blazers34's picture

a lot of providers are offering it as a free preview this weekend.  I dont know if I normally get it, but I checked and today I do

TLB's picture

Here is your order for tonight, head out and box em

Lookin at Lucky

Zenyatta

Blame

Paddy O'Prado

Musket Man

Johnny Ginter's picture

tell you what, TLB. make an actual argument based on stats and/or record that the QBs you listed are better than TP or any further posts by you on the subject are getting deleted

TLB's picture

Someone disagrees with you so you silence them? 

Johnny Ginter's picture

no man, i'm giving you an opportunity to make your case instead of just trolling with "X QB IS BETTER THAN PRYOR ALSO HE SHOULD BE A DE"

JakeBuckeye's picture

No, he's giving you a chance at an actual legit argument, as opposed to you just trolling.

Johnny Ginter's picture

WTF THIS MICHIGAN/ILLINOIS GAME IS BANANAS

Cuttin into my nap before the Hockey Bucks game.

Johnny Ginter's picture

and? what is this supposed to mean, other than some offenses pass more than other offenses? that TP has the best TD/INT ratio in the Big Ten? that his completion % is 3rd best in the Big Ten?

what are you trying to say here duder

TLB's picture

Pick the stats you want.  Just pointing out that he is not all that.

And for all those that wanted us to pass against Wisky on the goal line, I think we saw last week why Tress didnt want to call for a pass.

Johnny Ginter's picture

cherry picking stats? how? his completion % is terrific. he's averaging over 220 yards passing a game. he's got the best TD/INT ratio in the big ten. his QB rating is currently the best of any OSU QB ever.

are there better QBs? sure. should he be a DE or a TE? no, that's dumb as hell.

TLB's picture

The DE never entered my mind either, until I heard an NFL scout talking about it on some radio show.

Johnny Ginter's picture

that doesn't make it any less ridiculous

TLB's picture

My last word on this, that should please you.

When you watch those other QB's, their passes are a lot more crisp and on the money that the typical TP pass.  He has a hard time throwing the short pass, which is unfortunate because Saine could be rediculous in open space. 

He has a hard time throwing the quck out and hitting the receiver as he comes out of his cut.  So tired of watching the ball sail out of bound over the receivers head.

When he has to let a play develop he thinks too much and generally ends up throwing late...and high.  

He has gotten better at the deep ball and the run threat is always there.  A good defensive team will take away his running and make him beat them with the pass.  We saw it at Wisky and we'll see it again at Iowa.  If he can't throw on them, we won't win.

He's a Buckeye and I will argue his abilities with Buckeye fans, but defend him against all others.

Go Bucks!

Go Hockey Bucks tonight!

i really don't care about "crispness" unless i'm eating potato chips. the dude is completing his throws in the high 60% range. he does struggle on short throws at times but that's being awfully nitpicky

He has a hard time throwing the quck out and hitting the receiver as he comes out of his cut.  So tired of watching the ball sail out of bound over the receivers head.

haha this is true if you can literally only remember the wisconsin game

When he has to let a play develop he thinks too much and generally ends up throwing late...and high.

yeah no, he's had tons of time all year to throw and go through his progressions, when he's forced to roll out of the pocket he usually comes up with something outstanding.

A good defensive team will take away his running and make him beat them with the pass.  We saw it at Wisky and we'll see it again at Iowa.  If he can't throw on them, we won't win.

we didn't even try to pass against iowa (also that was a year ago, if we're going on last year's performance should we also continue to rag on stanzi for being an INT machine?), and wisconsin didn't "take away his running," we were playing from behind and TP was forced to pass because of that. TP did not play very well in that game, but that loss was on the defense and ST, as has been stated.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I thought Scheelhasse and Tolzien were better? Lol... I don't think you are arguing that Weber, Persa, or Chappell are better, and you saw Cousin's true colors against Iowa. Ricky Stanzi I'll probably give you, but remember that he is a senior and Pryor is a junior. Also remember Pryor's ability with his legs.

There's also sooooo many other stats that come into play other than these that you posted.

Bobcat04's picture

Wow, scUM/Illinois not for the fans of defense.  scUM just does not scare me at all if you can score at will on them.  I have to think we can hold them to under 59 points.

TLB's picture

Forcier should transfer to a 1-AA team next year.  He's a better real QB than Robinson.

TLB's picture

Were they trying a screen?  or did everyone just not block.

Bobcat04's picture

STORM THE FIELD AFTER BEATING ILLINOIS 67-65!!!!!  

TLB's picture

Bowl eligible, man!

Bobcat04's picture

Do they still play the Motor City Bowl?  scUM could play in that one and be back home for Christmas dinner.  

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yeah me too. My iPod died so I stopped posting, but if we gave up 65 in a win, I'd puke.

TLB, you sir, are an idiot.

poguemahone's picture

You have to admire him, though. His brain is impervious not only to to the effects differing opinions but also to facts. He's been spouting the "MOVE TP TO DE" line since the Purdue game last year, and has stuck to it through the Penn State game, the Oregon game, the Miami game, and his record setting pace this season. That takes some genuine ignorance stubbornness sticktoitiveness 

tomcollins's picture

It's pretty dumb.  Is Terelle a Heisman Candidate QB?  No.  However, he's by far the best QB on our roster and gives us by far the best shot at winning.  He also would probably be the best QB on at at least 3/4 of the schools out there (probably more).  He's just not as awesome as we thought he might be.  So he's been a bit disappointing, but for a college QB, I'll take him any season.

poguemahone's picture

I know it's dumb. Mind-bogglingly so. But I have to admire the fact that after a year-and-a-half, this guy is sticking to his guns despite the mounting evidence against him. He should consider a run for political office, if he isn't already there

I think Wisconsin is very beatable.  Indiana, Michigan and Northwestern all have a fighting chance to knock them off in the closing weeks.
