OREGON vs AUBURN for all the MARBLES. YAHTZEE!

Oh, who to root for tonight? Is it the team that accused the Buckeyes of stealing their plays in the Rose Bowl? Or is it the team with the $200,000 quarterback (allegedly)? Regardless of who you settle on, you'll likely be watching and your commentary is welcome below.

This hype video makes me want to vomit. It just pisses me off that we have a guy, Terrelle Pryor, who is repeatedly villianized by ESPN, other fanbases, and our own fanbase. Yet LaMichael James and Cam Newton, TWO ACTUAL CRIMINALS, are celebreated constantly with FAR LESS punishment than what Terrelle is recieving.

I'm all for second chances, and Newton and James deserve one if changed, but the contrast is just ridiculous!

William's picture

Anticipation. Determination. Perfection. I just threw up in my mouth...

741's picture

What did I miss?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Just the drooling over Newton. "He's been through everything. You can't break this kid." etc. etc. Contrast to his "addition by subtraction" and "wreaks of selfish immaturity" comments regarding Terrelle.

J.Mo's picture

Did anyone see the commercial for "Finer Football"? I think TJ Downing is in it.

Kyle's picture

I hate the SEC, $cam Newton, Chip Kelly and ESPN. I'm playing a drinking game based on how many times I hear "SEC speed" or "Oregon's speedy offense". I have Poison Control on standby for the end of the first quarter.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm normally one of those guys who is against "hating" any college athletes. HOWEVER, I can't help it, I'm with you. I hate Newton. I hate how he's guilty, how he knows he's guilty, how he doesn't care that he is guilty, and how he is getting away with being guilty.

Colin's picture

I hate his innocent smile.

Colin's picture

Every image of him off the field is him smiling and cheering with the fans. He really seems to be enjoying himself...probably knows he needs to take it all in while he's eligible.

Pleasant scenario: Oregon loses by 45.....Media must rethink "explosiveness of Oregon offense" and focus more on "garbage-ness of Pac-10"......Then, two months from now: Cam Newton is declared inelgible in 2010 and National title is stripped.......Win win...........

J.Mo's picture

Played Texas in 2009 in Fiesta Bowl, 2010 Texas plays in National Championship.
Played Oregon in 2010 in Rosw Bowl, 2011 Oregon plays in NC

Oregon has the hottest cheerleaders btw

JakeBuckeye's picture

I'm nearly 100% confident that Lee Corso and the Oregon Duck are gay for each other.

poguemahone's picture

Can't stand the SEC. Can stand Oregon and Kelly even less. Again, at least the SEC had a point in 0-9, and at least some of their teams have some respectable history and tradition. Oregon is all new money, with worse fans than Penn State.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Eh, I think I hate the SEC more because they have at least some point.

Colin's picture

I hate the SEC and I hate that both of the guest hosts are SEC coaches...

J.Mo's picture

I was at the Rose Bowl last year and Oregon fans were cool.

The SEC is on par with Hilter, Bin Laden, Sadam, Tim McVeigh, etc. in terms of pure evil.

Colin's picture

Thanks for reminding us that we were embarrassed 4 years ago Urban...

Jason Priestas's picture

Last chance for me to look stupid: Oregon 38-33.

SilverBullets's picture

Maybe just because I can't handle listening to another year of SEC but I'm thinking Oregon 42-34

SilverBullets's picture

I'm curious because I try to avoid ESPN when I can...

Has ESPN done a breakdown of what we did in the Rose Bowl last year on defense versus what others have tried (and failed) vs. Oregon?

JakeBuckeye's picture

We stole their signals. ESPN does not condone such lack of integrity.

SilverBullets's picture

Oh how could I forget?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Okay...

Was it just me or did I just see a white Auburn fan covered in brown paint with a Cam Newton jersey on?

osujake9's picture

is that a serious question? or are you being funny

JakeBuckeye's picture

I took a picture of my screen. Trying to get it up on here as we speak. It looks like it to me...

flipbuckeye's picture

Oregon unis... two thumbs down.

slippy's picture

I actually like them.

741's picture

I like them too. Maybe they should stick with this one for a while.

ohiowhitesnake's picture

Do you guys know how hard it is going to be for Oregon to beat the SEC??!! I mean it's one team versus a whole conference! Just look at the Bucks...they almost lost to the SEC in the Sugar Bowl. Or did they play Arkansas? I can't remember...

TLB's picture

Couldn't decide who I wanted until I saw EA with Chip Kelly.  What a jackass.

slippy's picture

To be fair she did ask some dumb questions.

flipbuckeye's picture

Well... who wants to be asked a bunch of stupid questions right before the biggest game in your coaching career?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Here it is:

EDIT: There's the link, but if there is anyway to show the image on this screen can somebody let me know?

slippy's picture

i saw him.  i think he's supposed to be the heisman

JakeBuckeye's picture

Hmmm...

I think you're right. Very poor choice if you ask me. That could be interpreted many different ways, hah.

741's picture

LOL. I'll go with inappropriate.

Buckinnc's picture

Good eye. Those southerners...

Kyle's picture

Auburn is already cheating to slow down the Ducks!

TLB's picture

I think eSECpn will be happy with this outcome.  No UofO speed early

Jason Priestas's picture

Good answer out of the Duck's defense.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater's picture

Oh sweet jesus....I was going to pull for Oregon (even though I frickin hate them) but then I saw those shoes.....yuck....now mildly pulling for Auburn.....hate for the SEC to win again, but screw Oregon

 

slippy's picture

"THat didn't work out"

 

Yea, buying stolen laptops and throwing them out of windows generally doesn't work out.

BuddhaBuck's picture

....they look like ducks with carbon-fiber heads....

Don't text while driving.

slippy's picture

Oregon dodged a bullet there.  THat ball was perfect.

slippy's picture

Also, Cam's first incomplete pass on an opening drive this whole year.  Eligible or not, that's an impressive stat.

SilverBullets's picture

So who took the first 2 drives would end in a punt prop?  Could've made a pretty penny

BuckeyeChief's picture

Here's one: I can care less who wins this f*cking game. I won't even watch.
BTW sprained my LCL Saturday and can't run for a f*cking month. F Cam Newton, F Lamichael James, F the NCAA.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

slippy's picture

Wow I'm impressed.  Not to be a dick but you never hear of anyone injuring the LCL.  Even in the complete tears it's generally the other 3.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yep, I'm that amazing!
What do ya'll think Massolli is doing right now?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

flipbuckeye's picture

Players are slipping all over the field.  Yikes.

TLB's picture

LOL.  Herbie was right.  His arm is going to be the key.

 

Is it me or does Kirk always buy into these gimmick offenses, like he did with Rich Rod at WVU?

JakeBuckeye's picture

Kirk buys into whatever ESPN wants him to buy into.

flipbuckeye's picture

What an awful throw.

TLB's picture

But.......he was confused by that great defense, Kirk says.

SilverBullets's picture

It was on a rope... to Harris

TLB's picture

In all fairness to the QB's, this game could have and should have been played a week ago.

RedQueenRace's picture

Dink and dunk.  Seems familiar somehow ...

RedQueenRace's picture

Well folks, we have a defensive struggle.

So far.

flipbuckeye's picture

I don't like watching this game.  I'm being a selfish homer thinking "Buckeye D would've owned him on that play" or "TP would've made a play on that".

And... LOL @ 3rd INT of the game.  And people wanted this game for the dueling offenses.

tampa buckeye's picture

Ohio State 1st half would kill any team in the nation.

RedQueenRace's picture

Even Alabama?  That's the one team that looked equally impressive.

tampa buckeye's picture

does anyone really need that much eye black??

slippy's picture

Did Musberger just say that Jeff Blake had a remarkable career?

flipbuckeye's picture

They don't want Cam going anywhere.  All those defenders aren't biting on these PA plays.

RedQueenRace's picture

Oregon is taking the run up the middle away from Newton.  That is where he killed people all year.

tampa buckeye's picture

This was the year to beat the SEC. Auburn isn't special.  They gave up 43 to Arkansas.  When was they last time a national champ gave up 40 plus in a game?

tampa buckeye's picture

Scam newton is getting bent.

BuddhaBuck's picture

Game check must be too small.

....Too soon?....

Don't text while driving.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Perhaps he is thinking ahead.

I'm sure he gets big time compensation for an NC.

flipbuckeye's picture

Oregon cheerleaders... mmm.

TLB's picture

That is a bush league offense.

TLB's picture

Yeah, I forgot.   Chip Kelly = Super Genius.

 

We only beat him because we stole his signs.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I didn't say "unstoppable", we clearly found the blueprint to stopping it last year, but that doesn't make it any less genious.

TLB's picture

It isn't genius.  It is a gimmick to hide lots of faults.  It doesn't work against a well coached defense.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Its gone 10-3 and 12-0 (pending 13-0) in Kelly's two years as head coach. I suppose theirs not a lot of "well coached defenses" in college football then.

The offense actually worked well against our defense for a large part of the Rose Bowl. We just held the ball away from them on offense for so long.

Your dislike/hate is blinding you. I hate Oregon more than you, I can guaruntee that. That is, unless, you have in-laws like I do that are Oregon fans.

TLB's picture

Believe me, it is not genius.  Wicky Wacky used it with the Bengals in the 80's with limited success. 

And yes, I have cousins that went to U of O and OSU so I know about the hated.

flipbuckeye's picture

Who would've guessed a scoreless first quarter...

JakeBuckeye's picture

It seems to happen all the time. A really hyped up offensive showdown ends up being a battle of the defenses.

flipbuckeye's picture

Huuuge stop there.

flipbuckeye's picture

That's gotta be a pick right there.

Jason Priestas's picture

Man, it's close. Did he maintain possession?

flipbuckeye's picture

Guess not.  To me, he had possession when his elbow hit the ground, then lost it when the rest of his body hit. I would've given it to em.

Kennywayne34's picture

I'm turning it to the bachelor.

flipbuckeye's picture

And that's what happens when you get cute, Chip.

ERIC OSU's picture

That kickoff is why I'm rooting for auburn.. oregon does all this gimmicky BS. I can't stand it, line up and hit someone

SilverBullets's picture

I know it's annoying, but only half as annoying as the SEC and ESPN.  Problem is other than Fairley who on Auburn is actually going to hit them?

Jason Priestas's picture

I hate the SEC more than anything on earth. Not a big Oregon fan, but clearly the lesser of two evils this evening.

Jason Priestas's picture

That touchdown play was slick. And then going for two? Wow.

JakeBuckeye's picture

I hate Chip Kelly as much as the next guy, believe me, but that doesn't make him any less of an amazing football brain.

AJ's picture

i hate chip kelly and the oregon fanbase

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

slippy's picture

You know you're in trouble defensively when then kicker and holder can execute the option to perfection.

poguemahone's picture

Ugh, Herbie. Please. I find myself more and more on TP's side in this argument, little as I like it.

slippy's picture

Whenever someone on ESPN says "speed" I feel like I'm standing in front of the Knights of Ni.

flipbuckeye's picture

TP stiff-arms that fool for another 15.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Funny how he actually has stiff armed that same defender multiple times...

TLB's picture

Or runs out of bounds 1/2 yard short of first down.

flipbuckeye's picture

Was going to mention that too.  But the stiff-arm still happens.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Taylor Martinez TOTALLY would have gotten that first down on 3rd and 15, dude!

TLB's picture

Yeah, prolly not.

TLB's picture

I'd go for it

TLB's picture

That pass looked familiar

JakeBuckeye's picture

You know you really are pissing me off. Why does almost every post of yours have to be some negative refererance to Terrelle?

AJ's picture

who cares? just watch this game with a school that has phil kinght buy the players and a school that pays there players...either we need to find a sugar daddy or start forking out the cash

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

tampa buckeye's picture

ya that was a heisman caliber pass ha f scam newton.  Great that his daddy can't come watch his sorry ass. what a joke the ncaa is allowing him to still play. 

flipbuckeye's picture

Good play call but a TP-esque throw.

tampa buckeye's picture

tp doesn't need good play calls

flipbuckeye's picture

True dat, sir.  Although I'm still a little hard from the PA to TE in the Sugar Bowl.

flipbuckeye's picture

Thought that was weird also.  Herbie or Brent didn't mention anything about it.

AJ's picture

thats what i said

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

TLB's picture

You can, but without a tee.

slippy's picture

It's a free kick.  You can do whatever you want.  Kicking wise.

TLB's picture

I hope this awful game doesnt go to overtime.

flipbuckeye's picture

More slipping.  Someone's going to have the heads of whoever did the groundwork on the field.

tampa buckeye's picture

they just put in new turf it can't be rooted in 3 or 4 days.

flipbuckeye's picture

Wow.  Oregon D.  Derp.

slippy's picture

Think Marcus Freeman could shed some light on how to defend that play?

flipbuckeye's picture

16-11.  Score still weird.

AJ's picture

hey we got mentioned!

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

flipbuckeye's picture

The only way ESPN knows how.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Funny how Kirk leaves out the whole Teddy Ginn getting injured part.

William's picture

Of course Musberger mentions the Ohio State-Florida game.

Poe McKnoe's picture

I was like, "what the f*ck does this have to do with anything?".  ESPN just prompted him to mention it.

Buckinnc's picture

Musberger/herbie/EsecPN couldn't resist bringing it up

ERIC OSU's picture

LoL erin andrews inventing injuries so that she makes an appearance in the first half.

TLB's picture

haha.  I was thinking the same thing.

Buckinnc's picture

Auburn= dirtiest motherf***** in the NCAA.

SilverBullets's picture

How was he not tossed?  To Chizik's credit, he did seem to notice what actually happened

Jason Priestas's picture

Eh - don't think what Musbie said about '07 was a "dig" at all. That game was the last BCSCG played in this stadium. Sucks, but relevant.

TLB's picture

Something has to be done about the 6 weeks off.  It is robbing us of a well played game.

William's picture

Stanford and Ohio State's offenses seemed fine, and neither the Pac-10 or Big-10 had a conference championship to extend their season. Seems like poor coaching and lack of preparation to me.

TLB's picture

Game is so bad they couldnt find a good hands play

Jason Priestas's picture

Not sure how many of you remember mid-Ohio hoops stars from the 90s, but thought this was pretty funny:

Buckeye Scottie's picture

That is awesome.  I was on the All Ohio squad, on the younger team when Ban was on the older team.  I can say for certain he won't be earning any phD's, but dude could flat BALL!

(RIP Coach Bruce Howard)

TLB's picture

They don't realize Big 10 refs don't put up with any exta cirriculars

slippy's picture

How many more personal fouls for Fairley before Chizik stops defending him?

TLB's picture

Those receivers sure seem to be open deep a lot

AJ's picture

ya this could be a 2 score game

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

Colin's picture

That was rather unpleasant, for Eddy Pleasant

RedQueenRace's picture

That's two scores Oregon dodged by Auburn mistakes.

Jim Marshall's picture

The sponsor for the game is the University of Phoenix, the online university whose football program doesn't exist. When it does, though, they'll still have higher academic standards than Auburn.

is it me of does chip kelly seem to call the same place twice before moving on

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

AJ's picture

play*

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

Jim Marshall's picture

and it just burnt him..  turn over on dns

AJ's picture

he seems arrogant

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

NoVA Buckeye's picture

tell oregon when you hold up large signs that have four pictures on them, the other team is gonna easily figure out on the film what the play is

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Colin's picture

Once again, Musberger calling TD early came back to bite him...

JakeBuckeye's picture

FINALLY, we have a pre-meditated "TOUCHDOWN!" from Brent.

slippy's picture

Hey Brent, the one player that plays the LEAST on the Bears' d-line is the one from the SEC.

slippy's picture

The Vikings, who have a widely regarded top tier d-line have zero SEC players on it.

slippy's picture

The Lions have one SEC player.  Out of those 3 teams that's 2 SEC players, both of which are backups.  You know who else has 2 players on those 3 teams?  Arkansas State.

SilverBullets's picture

Yea but it was said live on ESPN.  It must be fact

TLB's picture

Best D in the NFL has no SEC defensive linemen.

 

But the coordinator is a Buckeye.

ERIC OSU's picture

Stillers baby woot Woot!

Uncle_Buck's picture

Well it looks like tomorrows excuse from Oregon will be Auburn figured out our signals. Just like how Ohio State cheated last year.  I don't want an SEC team to win but im going to laugh at who ever loses very hard.

AJ's picture

oregon got downs

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

Colin's picture

Im thinking that in reality Darron Thomas is no better than Jeremiah Masoli

SilverBullets's picture

No I agree.  Maybe a bit quicker, but Masoli (and Blount) brought some toughness that they could use right now

ERIC OSU's picture

100% agree.. thomas just puts up gaudy numbers against weak and slow defenses

AJ's picture

that duck is gay

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

slippy's picture

TCU would get my vote for #1.  I hope the AP splits the vote at the least.

Buckinnc's picture

I Was thinking the same thing. Neither of these teams look like the best team in the country.

William's picture

Stanford vs. TCU for the real title?

AJ's picture

oregon beat stanford

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

William's picture

Yeah but I'd take the Stanford team that played at the end of the year over both of these teams. Also I think Stanford was up 21-3 at one point in that game.

SilverBullets's picture

Sneaky Fast= White Boy Speed.  Heard he has an unbelievable motor

AJ's picture

not if thomas has something to do with it

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

slippy's picture

I don't care who you are.  If you're hurt - take yourself out of the damn game.  Don't be a hero.  Newton got drilled on that 3rd down scramble on the last drive and has been in pain since.

William's picture

He's Cam Newton, mortals cannot hurt him...

Colin's picture

Does Oregon only run 4 plays? Read option, speed option, out to Maehl in the flat, and that occasional deep ball.

AJ's picture

yes...chip kelly is such a mastermind

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

Colin's picture

Run them fast enough and apparently you can confuse people.

JakeBuckeye's picture

All of the sudden my attention shifts fully to this game...

slippy's picture

Yeaaaaa Big 10 Umpire making the play!!!

Jason Priestas's picture

Looks like he got his hip into that one. Nice!

AJ's picture

how dare you sir?

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

Colin's picture

No power running

Jim Marshall's picture

its really unfortunate that someone has to win this game...

AJ's picture

+1

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

Jason Priestas's picture

Unreal game. No qualms about staying up late for this one.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Seriously though, am I the only one who sees an unconfident and nervous Cam Newton trotting onto the field?

AJ's picture

wow

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

osujake9's picture

This looks about the same as the play in the sugar bowl

RedQueenRace's picture

The Duck fans at Addicted to Quack aren't going to like this if upheld.  They've bitched about the officials all game.

RedQueenRace's picture

I agree 110%.  But they don't see it that way.

slippy's picture

I feel like Auburn has gotten away with a ton of holds.  Maybe that's just me.

flipbuckeye's picture

I feel like both teams have gotten away with holds.

slippy's picture

I think it's going to stand.

flipbuckeye's picture

They should play some Tresselball... run it up, let them burn their last timeout and kick a FG at 0:00.

slippy's picture

Let them score if you're Oregon?

AJ's picture

no way!! how deserving

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

RedQueenRace's picture

Oregon scorched up the middle all night.

flipbuckeye's picture

Hard to overturn that.

 

Scratch that... doesn't look like he made it.  Which works out for them.

TLB's picture

Better team won

Good 4th qtr.

Classic game it was not.

Colin's picture

Yeah the guys at ESPN better not call this an instant classic........it was a sloppy game.

AJ's picture

suck it chip...auburn steal you plays too?

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

JakeBuckeye's picture

Darron Thomas is awfully jubilant. I'm all for being a class act to your opponent but don't be happy.

poguemahone's picture

 

Well, Auburn tried really hard to choke it away, but before they did, I just liked watching these big softies from Eugene get torn up by real, athletic fronts on both sides of the ball. Just like last year. Up until they tried to give it all away, I suppose.

I also like that they finally called holding on the Ducks. First time all season, it seems.

flipbuckeye's picture

Couldn't ask for a better ending.  Oregon loses.  Auburn wins unimpressively.

flipbuckeye's picture

There are a few teams out there watching this feeling like they could've whooped some ass tonight.

Buckinnc's picture

What made the difference between last year and this year? About 200k

Irricoir's picture

I feel sick...Now we have to continue to hear about the almighty SEC.

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

JakeBuckeye's picture

We don't.

We beat Arkansas, and that win still hasn't worn off.

btalbert25's picture

Win or lose, we were going to anyway.  I'm telling ya, no one cares that we one either, I've already had people say 1-9.  There's really no comeback for that, it just doesn't sound as bad as 0-10.

ERIC OSU's picture

G to G chizik.. good to grand; 200 grand.

SilverBullets's picture

Still say there are 20 coaches I'd rather have than Chizik

Roger's picture

Malzahn, not so much.

SilverBullets's picture

Malzahn would definitely be in those 20

NW Buckeye's picture

The game was lost by OR audibles at the goal line.  Every time they audibled they got stuffed.  The last play that was run on a quick snap got into the zone.  If they stick to their game they win by 7 or better. Terrible coaching.  Maybe now the haters will appreciate JT a little more.

Jason Priestas's picture

Over/Under on how long until this championship is vacated?

SilverBullets's picture

Over/Under on longer than the Reggie Bush case?

NW Buckeye's picture

18 months +/- 6 months. 

marvorama's picture

can anyone clarify the wrist = down rule?  it was called in the sugar bowl, and i figured it would get overturned during the replay.  i found a pretty clear shot here:

http://30fps.mocksession.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/2011-January-11-0-2-50.jpeg

one person claims that the back of the wrist has to be down in order for the play to be called dead.  anyone know the rule?

NW Buckeye's picture

Don't know the college rule, but after many years of HS coaching, the back of the wrist needs to be down.  The problem with the front of the wrist is that is almost impossible to tell if it was the hand or the wrist down.  Officials usually look for the forearm to make contact if the hand is palm down. 

marvorama's picture

hmm, that does make sense.  thanks for the clarification!

SilverBullets's picture

When can we start cueing the "Oregon can't win the big one" meme?  Or is that going to start around the same time the Oklahoma one did?

-ohwait

btalbert25's picture

As long as they have those cheerleaders, they'll always be welcome in a big game.

Bucksfan's picture

Very underwhelming game.  May go down as a classic by score and stat sheet, but those who watched know better.  Sloppy, turnover-ridden 1st quarter, followed by a complete collapse by the Oregon secondary in the 2nd quarter.  The Oregon running game was nowhere to be found.  Auburn just did enough not to lose, but were not mistake free.

Just a blah game.  I feel that Ohio State would crush both teams, and that there's no way Fairley actually qualified to attend a 4-year university in this country.

OhioKris's picture

One of if not thee most boring championship games ever.

I feel like TCU or Stanford would dominate either of these two.

Regardless a playoff is needed. 

Jason Priestas's picture

I hear what you're saying, but Stanford had its chance and was waxed by Oregon.

OhioKris's picture

oh i know, that's why i put in the part about a playoff.

Powers's picture

TCU can definitely beat this Auburn team

ColdBuckeye's picture

Hey Gene, If the NCAA appeal doesn't go well, how about playing in Hawaii, the last week in August? That way we have all of our guys back for the Big Ten opener! USC did it this past season, what the hell? I'd go!

NW Buckeye's picture

That is a great suggestion!!!!!!

Pam's picture

I saw nothing in this game that led me to believe that either of these would've beat tOSU.  Last year the Ducks were averaging 37 PPG and we held them to 19.  This year they were averaging 47 PPG and got held to 19.  Very underwhelming performances by both teams.

Poe McKnoe's picture

ALL I SAW WAS SPEED!!!

Pam's picture

I guess my TV was in Slo-Mo
