Welp, Michigan didn't do us any favors (we should have known better than to count on Rodriguez), but the dream is still alive.

It's Senior Day in Iowa City and this group of Hawkeye veterans, at least on paper, is as talented as any the Buckeyes have faced this year.

Your insightful comments and any positive mojo you can bring to the fold are welcome.

Poe McKnoe's picture

She's hot.

Go Bucks.

flipbuckeye's picture

Ouch... that did not look good.

Jason Priestas's picture

Yep.  That was tough to watch.

TLB's picture

Finalist for Jim Thorpe?  Do people not watch us?

flipbuckeye's picture

Good stop. Whew. Let's go.

KCAlum's picture

The false start is an integral part of our offense, it must be we use it at least once every game

Joe Beale's picture

Sean McDonough says the O-Line is a strength this year, so it must be true...I guess.

Joe Beale's picture

lol...we're going to be drunk by the 2nd quarter.  Thanks, J.B.!

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

im gonna be drunk by the 2nd Quarter.

TLB's picture

You guys are behind

TLB's picture

Not the crowd noise.  Dumbass Shugarts

Joe Beale's picture

Pryor should have run there.

TLB's picture

One would think a 3 year starter could make that completion.

flipbuckeye's picture

And it still would've resulted in a 4th down.

Tim's picture

I bet the 5-wide looks are part of the reason Pryor loves the gameplan so much this week.  He's got to hit the short throws better, though.  That's driven me crazy all year.

Joe Beale's picture

3rd and long and we don't cover DJK?  Who's running our coverage?

flipbuckeye's picture

This defense is just getting pushed around.

TLB's picture

Can't call PI when already out of bounds.

DAVE's picture

Have we not done any tackling drills in practice this week?

Joe Beale's picture

Slow out of the gate yet again.  Sigh...

DAVE's picture

Not looking good.

Poe McKnoe's picture

I think when it comes down to it, this defense just isn't that good.  I know there have been a ton of injuries AND it's still a Top 5 defense, I just don't see it as 'dominating'.

BuddhaBuck's picture

+1 - the D only looks good to great against mid/low tier competition...  Say it with me: Chekwa is overrated.

Don't text while driving.

TLB's picture

Thorpe finalist.

BuddhaBuck's picture

puhahahahahahahaha

Don't text while driving.

Jason Priestas's picture

It's going to be a war, but we expected that coming in.

DAVE's picture

You need at least two sides to have a war.  That means our offense needs to answer.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Oddly enough, I am not ready to hit the panic button.  We have all been here before.

TLB's picture

How many plays in a row can we run without the O-Line getting a penalty?

Tim's picture

Shugarts false starts, and Adams holds.  That's just what happens.  Too bad the holds on Heyward on Iowa's drive weren't called like Adams' on Clayborn, though.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Or the refs calling a penalty.  That hold was WEAK.

flipbuckeye's picture

That was a nice play.

BuddhaBuck's picture

....hmm... smells like Wisky....

Don't text while driving.

DAVE's picture

Please go for it.

flipbuckeye's picture

Wow that was ballsy.  Tress might need a change of pants...

flipbuckeye's picture

Going for the FG... TP not happy.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Always take the points this early.

tomcollins's picture

No.  Even if we don't make it, we get the ball in great field position most of the time.  Iowa having the ball on the 1 is worth 3 points.  Especially when our defense is playing well.

TLB's picture

Still early. Get the points.

AJ's picture

tp may not have been happy but cmon...you had 3 plays to try and punch it in

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

Poe McKnoe's picture

No balls.  Don't know why I expected anything different.  That was 4th and goal from the inch line.  That shows absolutely no confidence in your line or offense...the same units you are supposed to be in charge of.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Although I 110% agree with you TP, as I actually just threw a plastic chair across the room Bobby Knight style myself, you need to shut your mouth.

Buckeye Black's picture

We are not a power team inside the five. Spread them out and neutralize their d line in the red zone!

Joe Beale's picture

Going for it on 4th and 1 succeeds 75% of the time, on average.  It's the percentage play!

Jason Priestas's picture

Sneak, roll the pocket, whatever. Most coaches would be licking their chops to have TP to play with in those situations.

AJ's picture

then why is it always the same....run run...try to pass and fail...

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

Poe McKnoe's picture

Bollman? Maurice Wells in the iso?

Buckeye Black's picture

Agreed, he is the most under utilized player in the country.

AJ's picture

whats with these trick passes by tp

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

Joe Beale's picture

I re-watched the 3rd and goal play.  It failed because TP did not unload immediately, as Stoney had broken free and was wide open.  Put that one on Terrelle.

TLB's picture

TP is in TP big game form.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Totally dude. 5/9 with three wide reciever drops. That should be 8/9 if you aren't a math wiz.

TLB's picture

I think the false starts have gone to your head already.

tomcollins's picture

 

Thought Tressel grew a pair and was gonna go for it on 4th.  Why take the timeout if you want a delay of game penalty?

Awesome dropsies by everyone not named Boren or Sanzenbacher.

TP needs to stop thinking he's Brett Favre.

Tim's picture

Why can't our pressure ever result in a sack?  It seems like the best we can do is flush Stanzi out for a gain of 3.

Poe McKnoe's picture

If our offense sees its shadow, does that mean 6 more weeks of winter?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Why are we dropping f***ing passes? That Fragel drop was already the third.

Joe Beale's picture

Stupid quick whistle.

Joe Beale's picture

How can that be a penalty if the WR did not even see the ball?

DAVE's picture

Homer calls all day.

Tim's picture

Bullshit call, receiver fell over trying to change directions, not Chekwa's fault he's not athletic enough to stay on his feet.

flipbuckeye's picture

Wow... just... wow. Come on, refs.  That is such bullshit.

Joe Beale's picture

That was a horrendous call.

Poe McKnoe's picture

If anything, Chekwa actually spun him into the ball.

tomcollins's picture

Great, now we gotta beat the refs too.

AJ's picture

im gonna take a shot for every BS PI call...

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

TLB's picture

Chimdi was out of position again. 

flipbuckeye's picture

Still pissed about that awful call.

RedQueenRace's picture

They missed what they didn't deserve so it worked out.

DAVE's picture

We're getting good penetration on d, just can't catch Stanzi.  Let their field goal kickers beat us (!).

TLB's picture

Penalties are 10 - 2

Joe Beale's picture

Can we get the angry Tressel halftime speech a little early?  

Joe Beale's picture

On a side note, I think it's blasphemy to re-make True Grit. 

Tim's picture

Have to be able to make that throw, Sanzenbacher was going to have a lot of open field ahead of him after the catch.

RedQueenRace's picture

Brown turned that into a tough catch.

Poe McKnoe's picture

It's like Ohio State can't function in big games. Fuck.

Joe Beale's picture

Clothesline tackle, no call.  I guess that "defenseless player" rule doesn't work for us.

AJ's picture

is that not hands to the face? or something with all these rules protecting WRs

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

Tim's picture

So it's not a penalty to rip someone's facemask like that?

DAVE's picture

That was a brutal face mask, but that is also Brown's secodn drop.

TLB's picture

Backjudge had a bad angle on that one.

AJ's picture

is that not hands to the face? or something with all these rules protecting WRs

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

flipbuckeye's picture

Of course they don't call that.  But extremely iffy PI calls are fair game.

Michael's picture

That should have been caught, but not calling that facemask penalty is indefensible on the part of these refs.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Hey TLB, I'm sure that was TP's fucking fault am I right? He's not getting ANY help from the recievers today except for the automatic Sanz.

TLB's picture

Not TP's fault. 

 

Play before that was.

tomcollins's picture

Triple Coverage = THROW IT DEEP

tomcollins's picture

Triple Coverage = THROW IT DEEP

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Horseshit on a terrible angle. Seeing the replay from that angle shows the ref looking directly at his hand holding the facemask.

tomcollins's picture

No way Posey caught it.  Must have traded jerseys with Sanzenbacher.

Roger's picture

Refs need to take two weeks off then quit. I hope that back judge gets injured in this game.

AJ's picture

that WAS pryors fault...

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

TLB's picture

um.......jake?

DAVE's picture

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

DAVE's picture

That was TPs fault.  Floater.

Tim's picture

Too bad penalties that aren't called allow this sort of thing to happen.

Powers's picture

will never ever ever learn

AJ's picture

T-wash was opened for about...a decade...

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

TLB's picture

How can Pryor say that is not his fault?

Bobcat04's picture

I'm starting to agree that TP will never ever live up to his potential here.  That was a TD.

Buckeye Black's picture

Well there are two halves for a reason.

RedQueenRace's picture

Well, I guess the gameplan Terrelle liked was getting receivers open deep.  Now if we can only catch it or get it to them.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

At this point I don't think TP will ever be "great".

Joe Beale's picture

That's really cruel.

Bobcat04's picture

Must make "ole Field Goal Jim"  happy.  I thought he was going to grow a pair and go for it for a second, but then he realized he was Jim Tressel.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Bullshit penalties, bullshit no calls, fucking drops, Jim Tressel's small penis, and Pryor's dunce cap at the end.

This is just fucking great.

Congrats Iowa. I'm sure we'll try to run Herron all day in the second half. Which won't work, because of Iowa's front of course. Why aren't we running the no huddle, maybe even some zone reads? Only God knows, but something I know is that if we try and run the ball with Herron in the second half we are not going to score a touchdown in this game. So congrats, Iowa, you managed to salvage your season I suppose.

flipbuckeye's picture

I share the same frustrations as you but... come on.  The score is 7-3.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Like I said, Jim Tressel trying to get back through the run game is almost a sure thing. And that won't work because this unfortunatley isn't Penn State. So congrats Iowa.

ERIC OSU's picture

........and who would've thought we were only down 4 at the half........

i would have hated to see your speak during the 2004 season....

Joe Beale's picture

I wonder what the speech will be like this week.  

KenK's picture

It had better be 'fire & brimstone'. The problem I have is that this "slow start" shit is starting to get old. How well do we prep for these games?

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

AJ's picture

what happened to the veer option in the first? wasnt even run once?

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

Jason Priestas's picture

This is kind of unreal:

After Terrelle Pryor threw that pick, sat on bench, QB coach Nick Siciliano came over to talk, Pryor yelled at Sic, and Sic walked away

http://twitter.com/#!/PDBuckeyes/status/6102546787606529

Colin's picture

that's counter productive

JakeBuckeye's picture

Why the fuck does TP have to continually prove TLB right? This day is just a nightmare.

AJ's picture

well thats what you get when you let the players became divas...they are some how entitled and know everything

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

JakeBuckeye's picture

And I thought I read that TP "grew up" late last year and in the off season? We can only hope Braxton is from a different cloth.

AJ's picture

it all starts with coaching...if the QB coach lets these kids walk all over him...then what do you think they are gonna do?...walk all over him

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

RedQueenRace's picture

Or not having a serviceable backup and the starter knows it.

AJ's picture

mmhmm

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

RedQueenRace's picture

Not sure what you mean or what you think I mean.  There isn't even a realistic threat of him being yanked for a series for attitude.

Roger's picture

You're not going to tell him anything now he doesn't already know. When TP has his game face on is not the time for a teaching moment.

flipbuckeye's picture

Last time a saw a TP game face this intense was... Purdue Harbor.  Just sayin'.

Bobcat04's picture

Assistant Video Coordinators take s*it from their players.  Bad hire.

TLB's picture

He doesnt think it was his fault.  Go back and read his lips when he came off and was talking to Tressel

Bobcat04's picture

Startin' to agree with you on Pryor.  Really, all we've got is last year's Oregon game to point to for a winning big game performance for Pryor, and that was against a suspect D.  Guy just never is the difference.  He sucks for a half, and then we start running the ball to keep it out of his hands.

tampa buckeye's picture

t wash cut his route toward the post pryor wanted him up field.  

AJ's picture

t wash was opened after 10 yards...pryor has a big window to hit him...again waited to long and hung the ball in the air...i think its hard to defend him on that pass..

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

RedQueenRace's picture

That throw wasn't getting to him in that case either.

poguemahone's picture

Is that TP "being a diva" or Siciliano just not being a very good coach, and TP knowing it?

AJ's picture

maybe a lil both...but TP is a diva...

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

Powers's picture

was that the fastest first half ever?

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

How are the dropsyes JT's fault?  How are the dropseys TP's fault?  This is a team game and the team is failing.  But the score is only 7-3.

Bobcat04's picture

It's just maddening as a fan, because Tressel wins B10 titles, goes to BCS games, has won a MNT, and so forth (!), but he's got to be one of the hardest coaches to watch for fans of that team.  We hardly ever just go out and take charge, and 9.5 times out of 10 we completely out-talent the team we're playing.

KenK's picture

I wonder what the gret offensive game plan is; this is an embarrassment. Until Pryor learns to throw the ball and not loft the ball, I'm afraid this is as good as it gets. Well, when you have a crackerjack video guy as your QB coach, don't get your hopes up.

I figured that we would tire out Iowa's defense and eke a win out in the 4th qtr. The way Iowa's offense is looking, I may be wrong; we'll be the ones sucking air.

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

Colin's picture

You know, of all things considered...this is still a pretty even game. We score out of the half and we are already winning.

flipbuckeye's picture

Agreed.  I'm not hitting the panic button yet.  But this has been really, really frustrating to watch, with bonehead plays, bonehead calls, and bonehead penalties.

tampa buckeye's picture

relax it was 14-3 last week.  Drive it down their throat and get 7 out the half.  

JakeBuckeye's picture

This is not Penn State. We CAN'T do to Iowa's front what we did to Penn State's. It won't happen. The only way of winning this game is Tressel unusually trusting in TP.

poguemahone's picture

The offense moved the ball well in the first half, better than it did against Penn State. Don't know why you're so doom and gloom.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Because I'm almost certain Jim Tressel is going to try and run almost the entire second half. I'm also almost certain that won't work. Again, this is not Penn State.

poguemahone's picture

Fine. Just keep hyperventilating, then. I'm sure that makes watching the game a lot of fun.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Relax? Not sure I understand how to so that during a game.:). No matter how much I've had to drink.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

BOOM!!!!! It is on this half. Well, it better be.......

AJ's picture

alright here we go...lets score on this drive..

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

AJ's picture

HEYYYY the veer option...ask you shall run the veer option

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

flipbuckeye's picture

15mph winds.  That is ridic.  I think that explains the spotty passing game.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Flag on Buckeyes. Nothing new.

AJ's picture

i know i said shots for BS PI calls...but im changing it to all BS calls

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

Bobcat04's picture

How many penalties does the line have so far?  Good Lord...

Johnny Ginter's picture

hahah millen i hate you so much

Johnny Ginter's picture

feel much worse about this game than last week, btw

Johnny Ginter's picture

that, and we really wont be able to lean on the run game

DAVE's picture

Can someome please punch Millenin the face?

TLB's picture

Many of us Lion fans would love to!

Bobcat04's picture

That was as fast as I've seen Pryor run since Illinois

flipbuckeye's picture

Get to the marker Pryor...

flipbuckeye's picture

Good execution there.

Johnny Ginter's picture

i will say that boom is running as well as anyone could hope for against these guys

Bobcat04's picture

Boom laid the wood at the end.  

DAVE's picture

Nice Boom.  At this rate I don't think I would mind if they ran it to Herron the rest of the day.  He's getting results.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Scrap the option, unless you go grab some coaches from Oregon.

DAVE's picture

Holy shit a flag on Iowa?  Is that worhty a drink?

Bobcat04's picture

DID THEY FINALLY CALL A PENALTY ON IOWA (faints)?!?!?

Johnny Ginter's picture

"any time your hands get up there they're gonna call it right away"

UHHHH

Johnny Ginter's picture

wooowwww excellent short pass by TP

FROZEN ROPE

flipbuckeye's picture

Nice. No hesitation there from Pryor this time.

Colin's picture

It is still the end of the world as we know it? Cuz I feel fine.

Tim's picture

Yay good decision, nice quick throw by Pryor.  Now let's go defense!

Buckeye Black's picture

This is the TP we need. He obviously kicks it up a notch after some one hits him.

Bobcat04's picture

Way to step up, D.

Johnny Ginter's picture

looks like we've gone out of the 4-2-5 in to a 4-3

Bobcat04's picture

Be nice to maybe get a sack this game.  Maybe?

DAVE's picture

How the eff was he that wide open?

RedQueenRace's picture

Dink and dunk.  The way to always attack this defense.

Bobcat04's picture

Shades of Wisconsin?  Need a stop and get handled?

Johnny Ginter's picture

this D is is really screwing up their zone assignments

Bobcat04's picture

Hines is an athlete and playmaker, but not necessarily an "assignment sound" player.

Johnny Ginter's picture

this is insane

Johnny Ginter's picture

whup, didnt see the helmet to helmet

Tim's picture

That's not a penalty.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Worst. Call. Ever.

RedQueenRace's picture

Just effing beautiful.

KenK's picture

This is absolute BS. Time to put dresses on the Iowa players.

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

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Terrible call 

-actually no, didn't see helmet to helmet

TLB's picture

That call was so bad Tress is about to go all Woody.

Bobcat04's picture

Iowa may have more penalty yards gained than with their offense.

Bobcat04's picture

Better than giving up 7 after that call.

DAVE's picture

I'll trade TDs for FGs all day

TLB's picture

Yes was helmet to helmet.....but he had his head up, was facemask to facemask.  I just don't understand it I guess

Bobcat04's picture

Or a kick out of bounds...

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Long painful drone resulting in 7 then the D dominates. Pls.

TLB's picture

Pound it. and then pound it some more.

TLB's picture

Penalties now 14-134, 4-26

poguemahone's picture

On a second look, that call against Hines was legit. Flagrant helmet-to-helmet. Stupid, stupid play on his part. It's good the rest of the D made up for his stupidity with some solid coverage.

TLB's picture

head was up, did not lead with it.  not legit.

 

then again we rarely agree.

poguemahone's picture

He leaned in with his helmet three seconds after the play was over. It doesn't get any more obvious than that.

Tim's picture

3 seconds in slow motion?  The ball hit Hines while he was starting to make the hit.  If it's a penalty, it's for helmet-to-helmet, not for being late.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Except they called defenseless receiver.

But it was helmet to helmet.

Johnny Ginter's picture

yeah, hines has to know better than that

CliffordTheBRD's picture

He could have had a pick on that play, too. Though he has been big lately, so won't complain too much.

poguemahone's picture

He dropped a pick earlier, no? 

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Slight win for FG instead of TD

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Special teams gaffes like that could be big in a Tressel ball game like this one.

DAVE's picture

Haven't seen Saine on w heel rout yet have we?

Bobcat04's picture

Boom has good vision.  Too bad no hole.

Bobcat04's picture

Damn it.  Alligator Arms.

Johnny Ginter's picture

terrible. how many drops is that now?

poguemahone's picture

I believe that was the 40th

Or at least it felt like it 

Bobcat04's picture

We can't say we haven't had a bunch of opportunities to take control.  Just don't look sharp.

DAVE's picture

"...usually reliable Dane SAnzenbacher..."

Buckeye Black's picture

What the hell with the drops!?

Tim's picture

Man, I guess Sanzenbacher was going to drop one eventually, with all the amazing cathces he's made to bail Pryor out.  Too bad it had to be then.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Cannot catch football.

DAVE's picture

Rolle is haveing a hell of a game.

poguemahone's picture

Rolle is killing fools today. Blew that coverage earlier on DJK (though it wasn't exactly a fair match-up) but has been lights out since

poguemahone's picture

Ugh. Three dudes there.

Powers's picture

how do we only bring three

poguemahone's picture

Players let the coaches down there. Everyone was in place.

Bobcat04's picture

All the white jerseys on the rec.  STILL caught.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Cannot defend with zone.

Tim's picture

Good recognition, Aaron Gant, dive behind the receiver.  Damn it, I miss Barnett.

Bobcat04's picture

Does anyone know Iowa's 3rd down conversions?  Has to be astronomical.  

poguemahone's picture

5 of 9. Same as ours.

Bobcat04's picture

OK, maybe it just feels like more, as theirs are all 3rd and long.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

OSU and Iowa both 5-9 by ESPN

OSU has had some long ones too - due to penalties mostly

AJ's picture

do we play down to the competetion...

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

CliffordTheBRD's picture

I think its more Iowa plays up or down respectively

DAVE's picture

A d stop would be nice here

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

11 yards up the middle? WTF!

Bobcat04's picture

When push has come to shove this year, our DL has gotten shoved.  

Tim's picture

That ball was so underthrown that we couldn't even get the interception.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

On replay that was a drop by DJK

Tim's picture

I think DJK made the adjustment to the ball while Chekwa and Hines didn't, but even if he did drop it, it was a very badly thrown ball.

Tim's picture

What?! Incompletion on 3rd down?  Must have been a penalty on us!

TLB's picture

Tough to catch with your feet.

He should have run

Bobcat04's picture

1st down: shot at Sanzo's feet.  2nd down:  failed read

Poe McKnoe's picture

Does Jim Tressel conference call with opposing coaches and agree that points will not be scored?

Bobcat04's picture

Worst series ever.  GAME.

Tim's picture

Wow that was lucky.  Come on.

TLB's picture

Pryor being Pryor

Poe McKnoe's picture

Balls.  Terrelle is booty.

flipbuckeye's picture

Terrelle "FLASHES OF DERP" Pryor.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Atleast we still have basketball.

Bobcat04's picture

+100

Matta>Tressel

DAVE's picture

If we don't answer with a score then game.

Bobcat04's picture

And the sad thing is that Clayborn is the one player on the whole Iowa team that we would have offered.  

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Still almost 12 min. Plenty of time...

DAVE's picture

Agreed.  The problem is that one play just broke for Iowa.  Like I said, if we don't score here then game. Probably.

Bobcat04's picture

If we lose, we are Penn State from a year ago.  High expectations, only to lose the only two tough games on the schedule.

AJ's picture

number one problem...pryor thinks hes a QB....haha...no but seriously

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

Tim's picture

I wish Pryor would try a little harder to get a the extra yard on runs like that.

Johnny Ginter's picture

boom is playing his heart out

flipbuckeye's picture

Great effort by Boom.

Bobcat04's picture

Much like Wisconsin, Boom is the only player worth a damn on offense.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

boom = my fav buckeye right now.

AJ's picture

what...a false start? what is that

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

Bobcat04's picture

173rd penalty...

Tim's picture

Was Stoneburner lined up next to Shugarts there?  I'd still blame Shugarts.

Bobcat04's picture

Wow, Posey still plays for OSU?  I forgot about him.

DAVE's picture

I bet that same play would have also worked on the one inch line...

TLB's picture

Spiking the ball to save time.

AJ's picture

hahaha...yes that is certainly what a lot of these passes look like

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

Poe McKnoe's picture

Our offense is stupid.  The whole thing.  Every single part.

Bobcat04's picture

I hope our defensive line sees what it's like to sack somebody.

Poe McKnoe's picture

TWash could have caught that one.

I said it.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

TP often seems to have lots of time to throw

Bobcat04's picture

Drop, drop, drop, drop, drop....

Corey Brown = Not Ready

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Just when I am about to rip Pryor, a WR goes and drops a freaking pass.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Not exactly sure who he was throwing it to...and why there were two receivers there.

Tim's picture

Seemed like fear of contact kept Philly Brown from going all out on that one.

AJ's picture

wasnt like that pass was right between the numbers...philly brown laid out for it

It would be pretty sweet if we had an extra 4 points.  But gotta get the points early in the game!

flipbuckeye's picture

And that kick was pretty nice.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

You sound like the 4 was a sure thing.  i want some of that kool-aid.

Bobcat04's picture

I hope Tressel just cleans house on these assistants this offseason.  Course, that'll never happen.

InTresselWeTrust's picture

I haven't had much faith in our defense/secondary all season long. Here is put up or shutup time. Get the stop and give the offense a chance to win it.

Roger's picture

So many drops today. Really unbelievable. Causing TP to want to press and make a play.

Buckeye Black's picture

DROPS!!!!!!!!! This is unreal. And we should be running no huddle all game.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

How much coverage was on that pass?

RedQueenRace's picture

The passing game has been there all game.  Just can't get both ends of it in sync.

tomcollins's picture

In before Iowa 7 minute drive to eat the clock.

tomcollins's picture

In before automatic 3rd down conversion for Iowa.

tampa buckeye's picture

drops aren't helping. posey got in the way there

Bobcat04's picture

Then the TV rubs salt in my wounds by showing Troy Smith.  Remembering what is was like to have a qb that you could trust to make some plays and use the wideouts.  Ahhh...

tampa buckeye's picture

got to pin em back here lets go d!!!

Bobcat04's picture

Is that...A SACK?!?!!?

TLB's picture

Positive. Buckeye. Energy.

RedQueenRace's picture

Did the receiver have enough cushion there?

Poe McKnoe's picture

Someone should be covering that guy?

flipbuckeye's picture

CLUTCH. HUGE STOP.

flipbuckeye's picture

In before headscratching 3 and out. Just kidding. LET'S GO BUCKS!

TLB's picture

Terrelle's legacy part 2.

Tim's picture

The huge cushion on that 2nd down play gave them most of that yardage back.  Huge series by Simon there- sack and pass deflection.

DAVE's picture

Test of manhood right here.  GO BUCKS!!

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Patiently waiting to be impressed by TP........

Pam's picture

He has had some good passes dropped

Johnny Ginter's picture

he's made a couple of horrible decisions today but his WRs are not helping him at all

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Big games are not his forte.

Powers's picture

Go Buckeyes! (via my girlfriend)

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Just one drive, eat clock and find the endzone.

Johnny Ginter's picture

if saine ends up being the hero here i will laugh and laugh and laugh

flipbuckeye's picture

Out of the way, ref.

Johnny Ginter's picture

HOLY CRAP SOMEONE HELD ON TO THE BALL

DAVE's picture

Was Boom out of bounds when the d threw him down?

TLB's picture

1st time all year he hit someone on the run like that.

 

Go Bucks

Bobcat04's picture

DAMN, Pryor is terrible.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Obviously they didn't practice catching this week.

Bobcat04's picture

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

AJ's picture

CMON!!!!!!!

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

tomcollins's picture

Can't symbolize this game any better than that.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

you have got to be f*cking kidding me!

Tim's picture

You have got to be kidding me.  Best throw of the season by Pryor.  OMG.

Bobcat04's picture

Unreal.  Only perfect throw of the game, and THAT.  Could have been ballgame..

tomcollins's picture

Time for Tressel and his small scrotum to punt instead of try to win the game.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Not so fast my friend :)

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

I am done ripping on TP.

TLB's picture

Receivers must be mad at TP

flipbuckeye's picture

The only explanation.  Kidding but the thought crossed my mind.  A ridiculous amount of drops.

Bobcat04's picture

Wow,  I mean, Wow

Tim's picture

Can't believe we went for it, but nice job Pryor, way to stay calm.

Pam's picture

Nice recovery TP!  Don't blow it

Pam's picture

Tress goes for it? I just spit out my Diet Coke

Poe McKnoe's picture

What is Jimmy T smoking?  He won't go for it at the 1 but he'll go for 4th and 10 with 3 timeouts?  It worked, but WTF?

CliffordTheBRD's picture

I liked both decisions but maybe its just me

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Come on you know a D plays differnt on the 1 than in the middle of the field.

Johnny Ginter's picture

this is so ridiculous

flipbuckeye's picture

And Iowa's D gets a breather...

Pam's picture

Let's Go Bucks!!!!!!!!!  You can win this sucker

AJ's picture

even if we had a QB that stuck the passes right in the bread basket i guess it wouldnt matter...

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

flipbuckeye's picture

If we're gonna do this, run some time off the clock please.

Pam's picture

Holy shit!!!!

Tim's picture

Foot's down, we're good.

flipbuckeye's picture

Oh he's in, STFU Millen.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Only Millen and whateverthefuckhisnameis would think otherwise.

TLB's picture

If it can go against us, it will

Poe McKnoe's picture

No substitutions. Mother of god.

Tim's picture

Physically impossible for foot not to touch ground there.

Michael's picture

That doesn't look like a bobble and his foot was obviously down.

Buckeye Black's picture

Was that Gonzo vs. ScUM in 05?

flipbuckeye's picture

Cue sarcastic applaud.

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Oh do i wish there was less time on the clock but oh well, lets do this

flipbuckeye's picture

Let that clock RUNNNNNN

flipbuckeye's picture

BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poe McKnoe's picture

These announcers blow.

FTW.

InTresselWeTrust's picture

Again, d time. For 1:47

flipbuckeye's picture

Bubble burst in 5... 4... 3...

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Then again, don't let them deep - those wide receivers and Stanzi are good

Pam's picture

We love you Boom! 

DAVE's picture

ANyone else emotionally drained after the last five minutes?

flipbuckeye's picture

Sooo much time left.

Bobcat04's picture

And only a field goal is needed for OT.  We need a BIG stop.

RedQueenRace's picture

Starts with good kick coverage.

Johnny Ginter's picture

what's hilarious is that it almost works out better this way

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Stanzi hates hippies like Barclay.

TLB's picture

HOT DAMN!!!

 

You guys know Denny Hamlin leads Jimmy Johnson............

Colin's picture

I'm starting to get the picture

tampa buckeye's picture

I'd say wisky down by 3 was the season.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Need to play a little defense - nice drive by Pryor though. So great the way he picked up Posey with the 4th down run.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Luckily Anderson Russell is on an NFL practice team somewhere.

Johnny Ginter's picture

unluckily three of our best press cover dudes are injured

Bobcat04's picture

Let them get to the 37 on the return...

Bobcat04's picture

And they don't call it now...

flipbuckeye's picture

Dumb Hines. You're lucky there was no flag.

Michael's picture

Jesus. That should have been PI, but I don't blame him.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Sadly, I have no faith in our D.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Seems like it was good timing.

Maybe.

Tim's picture

Sorry Iowa, you've had every call all day.  Hope Robinson is ok, though.

TLB's picture

for once they might have been able to call a penalty, and they didnt

Bobcat04's picture

This announcing crew is really pissing me off.

Poe McKnoe's picture

Just commentate the game.

TLB's picture

Son, where are you........."yes, sir".

TLB's picture

Calling a pick 6.

flipbuckeye's picture

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

RedQueenRace's picture

Secondary stepping up.

Bobcat04's picture

CAM HEYWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And TRavis Howard has really been playing well the last 2 weeks...

flipbuckeye's picture

GAME! FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUNK YES!!!!

Bobcat04's picture

BIG STAND!!!  SCREW AMERISTANZI

Johnny Ginter's picture

goodness gracious

AJ's picture

thats game....O H!!

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

TLB's picture

they could have tackled Heyward and nothing would have been called

tomcollins's picture

LOL @ this terrible announcing crew calling it a 1st down for Iowa.

Pam's picture

Pay back for the no call on the face mask right in front of the ref

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Sad Clayborn - I like it!!!

poguemahone's picture

Yo, anti-TP faction:

Johnny Ginter's picture

a young jim bollman struts his stuff

AJ's picture

i dont think that is pryor....

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

AJ's picture

if it were pryor it would be a picture of him throwing into triple coverage or into the dirt

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

TLB's picture

+1

 

but you cant be really happy with his performance.........he is not a qb

poguemahone's picture

He's a hell of a DE to be 5th in the country in passing efficiency

AJ's picture

do you think hes gonna be a QB in the NFL?

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

poguemahone's picture

If Shaun Hill continues to draw a paycheck, I'm certain of it.

AJ's picture

i guess time will tell...or not

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

CliffordTheBRD's picture

Can't they just run one more play and use the clock- punter running backwards or something?

flipbuckeye's picture

I'm honestly scared of punting it but it's the best option available.

Kansas City Buckeye's picture

Its F*cking michigan week!

TLB's picture

THE BASTARDS.

CliffordTheBRD's picture

It is crazy after a game like that, but yeah. A good way to start Michigan week.

flipbuckeye's picture

And so begins the last week of our regular season. :(

Colin's picture

 At least it is on a good note :)

AJ's picture

its 3:44 (on the west coast) and michigan still sucks..

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

JakeBuckeye's picture

TP I am back to completely <3ing you. You got absolutely no help from ANY of your recievers excluding Sanz who even had a drop. Also, can't say enough about how well this defense played when it really counted, particulary the defensive live.

11W, just put my account on inactive at every halftime from here on out. I turned into one of them...

This should have been an absolutely legendary performance by Pryor, but 6 or 7 (8?) drops very unfortunatley take that away from him. Oh well, we won, I'm pleased, Go Bucks, OH-, etc. etc.

Roger's picture

Just to clarify on the play where Jermale Hines mugged Robinson: Normally on a slip screen the back is behind the LOS. In that case it would NOT be pass interference. Since the back was past the LOS there was indeed a penalty, ineligible receiver down field (5 yards, repeat down).

If the refs had been paying attention, a procedural penalty would have been called on Iowa and the PI called on OSU. In this case the penalties would have offset. Since neither was called the result was the same.
