GET SOME
KICKOFF: 12:00PM ET
FAVORITE: Ohio State (-16.5)
TELEVISION: ABC
PREVIEW: #8 Ohio State vs Michigan
RADIO: OSU Football Affiliates
WEATHER: Perfect for The Game

 

 

 

 

It's here.  The day we wait the other 364 days for.

The Wolverines come in limping -- as they have for every edition of The Game under Rodriguez -- but never underestimate a wounded team that can make their season with an upset in Columbus.

For Jim Tressel and the Buckeyes, today is all about streaks.  A win would be seven-straight over the hated Wolverines and put the team in position to share a sixth-straight Big Ten championship.

Welcome to the hatinest open thread of the year.

WE DON'T GIVE A DAMN.....

About the whole state of Michigan, the whole state of Michigan, the whole state of Michigan ... we don't give a damn about the whole state of Michigan, we're OHIO

I think those unis are going to confuse the hell out of an already confused and beat up Wolvereen team.

Anyone watching Game Day?  Herbie and Corso are defending BSU by saying that Nevada is a REALLY good team. 

TLB's picture

4letter is really upset with the loss.  They were looking for a playoff system so they can make more money.

Colin's picture

Herbie was absolutely in LOVE with Boise St. It was pretty disturbing.

Pam's picture

At least Desmond said the kicker lost the game for them.  He said it was his job to win the game.  While that it true, the way the game was going, the kicker shouldn't have been in the position to win the game in the first place.

I recall on a Cleveland sportstallk station around, I'll say 1997, when a TSUN fan called in and said, "Its not really even a rivalry anymore, its just another game to us," in a poorly chosen arrogance akin to only them.

Well, let me tell you, beating down the rat-infested, mulleted, bloated weasel-cats from Ann Arbor a hundred times in a row will still be as sweet as the first time.  Never, and I mean never will we ever take for granted neither the importance nor the significance of the greatest rivalry in all of sports. 

And that's what makes us better.  Go Bucks!

DarthSweaterVest's picture

Every win against TTUN is sweet, no mattter if we've just gone 2-10-1 or have won 6 in a row, whether they are undefeated or 3-7.  I love beating them and so does all of Buckeye nation.  Go Bucks!!

Buckinnc's picture

Anybody else not have sound or is dish network doing me a favor cause Matt millen is calling the game?

onager's picture

Herby has been patiently explaining to us why Boise St should be viewed as a very high quality team.  Whoops!!!!! 

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

onager's picture

The monotone play by play guy kills the broadcast all by himself and then you add Millen.  have we found something else he can't do besides be a GM for an NFL team?

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

flipbuckeye's picture

Yeah not a fan of this Mcdonough fellow.  Reference has been made before, but dude sounds like Reverend Lovejoy.

poguemahone's picture

Tearing down the banner never, ever gets old

poguemahone's picture

I don't really mind the alternates 

flipbuckeye's picture

Those helmets are throwing me off...

poguemahone's picture

Would another slow start really surprise anyone?

poguemahone's picture

The bad thing is that Michigan's offense is definitely going to take advantage of it

onager's picture

Can we stop them?

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten! 

poguemahone's picture

Well, they moved the ball last year. 

onager's picture

Fortunately we can stop them.

Big Ten! Big Ten! Big Ten!

flipbuckeye's picture

Good punt coverage?  WUT

poguemahone's picture

Sigh. We did this same crap last year and the year before. Michigan's defense always plays a quarter and takes the rest off. Even so, I'd like to see a first down.

Boyceblan's picture

Agree, but then this "super quarterback" that we have who has yet to be used effectively except in sporadic episodes is getting old.

poguemahone's picture

Brian Cook had a good point this week where Tress only seems to deploy the read-option spread when we're under pressure in games. Did it last year in this game, in point of fact.

Here's hoping we see it on the next offensive drive.

flipbuckeye's picture

That was a mouthful for that ref. Haha.

poguemahone's picture

I've already moved to "just keep them from scoring mode"

Boyceblan's picture

Did our secondary grease their hands earlier?  Whats up with these weak ass tackles attempts?

Buckinnc's picture

OJ getting owned as usual

flipbuckeye's picture

We'll take that.  Though, objectively, that was a BS holding call against Schilling.

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Better get the swagger on this possession. UM IS going to score points before the 1/2. While I have confidence in this team in the 2nd as we come out well adjusted, UM has been much better then as well. Absolutely NO excuse to play down to a terrible defense.

flipbuckeye's picture

There we go.  Was looking for him to take off but that was even better.

flipbuckeye's picture

And Millen... only one Z in Sanzenbacher.

Boyceblan's picture

Dont worry we are in FG range.  There is no reason to try and get anymore yardage.

flipbuckeye's picture

Thank goodness they can't catch a ball.

flipbuckeye's picture

There we go.  Let's open the floodgates.

flipbuckeye's picture

The running game is obviously not working.  Let's torch that secondary of theirs.

flipbuckeye's picture

See what happens when you listen to flipbuckeye?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Starting to breathe now...can't eat or breathe during this game. I agree, beating them 100 times in a row, each time will be as sweet as the first.

 

I saw a kid that really looked like Bo this morning, maybe 18 or 19 years old. I wanted to drop a few choice words but I had my daughter with me.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Forcier is in...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

That didn't take long.  This is going to get ugly.

BuckeyeChief's picture

SWEET TURNOVER!!!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

I want another TD before the half!!!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

I am also assuming the lack of comments is because everyone else is at the game.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Lol...UCONN is going to a BCS game in the second year up from I-AA

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Kurt's picture

Yea and Boise is suddenly relegated to the Humanitarian Bowl, that's fair.

poguemahone's picture

Ugh. I had a feeling that was going to happen. 31-7 might have been ball game.

KINGOFDAMIDDIE's picture

Can't  believe Washington had clutch catch.  Sanz is the man

Jason Priestas's picture

How about the two seniors stepping up on that early drive?!  Loved seeing T-Wash make that catch.  He hung around when a lot of others would have bolted.

poguemahone's picture

This feels a lot like the Rose Bowl against Oregon.

nickma71's picture

Having two fat butts on the defensive line at the same time is a no go against the spread.

TLB's picture

3 year starter.

Jason Priestas's picture

Yeah, but I have a decade of Madden in me and still make that throw sometimes when I'm feeling cocky and playing with a big lead.

poguemahone's picture

Only 9 touches in the first half for Boom and Zoom

poguemahone's picture

Probably never, unless we make some defensive adjustments

painterlad's picture

Hate me meatchicken wolveweenies.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Way to start it off boys!!!

KenK's picture

Tate is picking up where he left off from 2009.

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Millen is an idiot.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

Dumb refs.  Two knees, an elbow, and an ass hit the ground before the ball pops out and they don't blow a whistle.

BuckeyeChief's picture

in case you wher wondering, the 1942 score was 21-7; only game we lost was to Wisky.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

And Boom goes the dynamite.

BuckeyeChief's picture

This is stupid.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

These excessive celebration calls are ridiculous.  SMH.

KenK's picture

Next OSU score; the runner/receiver needs to turn to UM bench with a crotch-grab. How's that for a sign?!

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

flipbuckeye's picture

Dane made the same O sign and didn't get flagged.  Posey and Boom do it and the flags go flying.  How about a little consistency, refs?

It's The fxcking Game and the last for some, let them show some emotion.

KenK's picture

maybe the refs figured that Dane's TD would be it for OSU, since D-Rob stated that he thought UM had one of the best defenses in the country.

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

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Better call unsportmanlike on the ppl who painted that O on the field.

BuckeyeChief's picture

HELLL YESSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!

BuckeyeChief's picture

F these refs.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

TLB's picture

Ref has asked that we stop scoring

KenK's picture

What a bullshit call on Dane! Oh, UMM player had Dane's facemask? Didn't see it.

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Hands to the face, but let's call holding.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poguemahone's picture

These refs have been fucking terrible all day. Missed obvious calls, shitty spots, making terrible judgment calls on the celebrations and on that hold. This game is fucking over. Let 'em play and have fun.

KenK's picture

Did we bring these refs in from the Big XII?

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

poguemahone's picture

I think they were shipped in from the SEC. This is corruption Nucky Thompson would be proud of.

KenK's picture

That's probably a better explanation

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

TLB's picture

AND WHEN WE WIN THE GAME WE'LL BUY A KEG OF BOOOOOZE .......

KenK's picture

I 'heart' BRolle

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

flipbuckeye's picture

These. refs. are. stupid.  IT'S THE FXCKING GAME.

KenK's picture

UM's Lewan needs his young ass kicked

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

At least this is a game scUM team, unlike last year.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

KenK's picture

True, although Lewan has been a dick all game.

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

KenK's picture

jesus christ, they can't placekick, nor can they punt.

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

BuckeyeChief's picture

Q: Is Rich Rod gonna cry again today?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

KenK's picture

A: From what I've seen this afternoon, I don't blame him.

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

did you see the OSU ball boy look at RR and start laughing just afew secs ago?

Holding call of course; OSU is threatening to score.

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

flipbuckeye's picture

That was the right call.

For once.

KenK's picture

On a related matter; t looks like Brewster's snaps have been a little high and left today.

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

KenK's picture

Well, that was some coverage fromUM's #22. Has he been watching Chekwa?

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

KINGOFDAMIDDIE's picture

Im the only one allowed to talk about how horribe Chekwa's coverage is

pryor could have walked into the end zone, no need to force that pass

Looks like that should've been caught.

Jeesh, between FG's and kickoffs, Barclay will need to ice down his leg.

And some manlove to our defense. Holding a high scoring offense to 7 points through 3 quarters is damn impressive.

Let's get at least one more score in there.  No reason we shouldn't have hung at least half a hundie on these guys.
