Eleven Dubcast: Home

By Luke on October 27, 2011 at 12:01p
Sometimes less is more. Not here.We've come a long way from the inaugural "Eat Too Brutus".


Oh, yeah... I suppose past episodes don't really contain any episode-to-episode story arcs that would be necessary to refresh your memory on before seeing what unfolds this week. Well in that case, Johnny and myself look towards Ohio State's all intents and purposes ostensible game of the season this weekend against Wisconsin. We break down what Ohio State has to do to win (beyond make some sort of sacrifice to a higher power or successfully execute a Drink Too hatched ), whether or not the defense will be up to the task against Wisconsin's remarkably efficient offense, and if it's even conceivable for the Buckeyes' offense to have enough in their arsenal to out duel the Wisconsin defense and potentially steal a W.

To really get the nitty gritty and dig deeper on the game itself (and speaking of 'previously on the Eleven Dubcast'), we welcome back Adam Hoge from Bucky's 5th Quarter. Adam discusses where Russell Wilson falls relative to the team (and their fanbase)'s preseason expectations, whether or not the Badgers can be susceptible for a second week in a row in conference play, who some of the key Badgers players to watch on both sides of the ball, whether or not this incarnation of the Buckeyes frighten Wisconsin fans in the least, and finally how he sees the game playing out.

Lastly, we talk what to look forward to at the forthcoming (as in this weekend) Eat Too Brutus and Drink Too Brutus. Should be quite the weekend. If you're an 11W superfan to the point of listening to this bad boy with any sort of regularity, we expect to shake your hand appropriately this weekend. Oh, and yeah, the Embarrassment Theatre Du Jour (TM) includes you being subjected to me performing Wisconsin native Bon Iver's "Skinny Love". You should probably hit stop before things get that far.

Enjoy the tunes? Use your excess disposable income and acquire them accordingly. The opener is LIGHT's "Timing is Everything". The post-guest transitional break jam is the venerable M83 from everyone's album of the year with its lead single, "Midnight City". The fade-to-black jam this week comes courtesy of the Dum Dum Girls with the excellent "Coming Down". Lastly, because Justin Vernon (he of Bon Iver infamy) is better than everyone at everything (and more specifically me at playing his music), you should probably own "Skinny Love" if you don't already.

Way too pessimistic this week, guys.  Cheer up.  How everything is going to play out can be summarized by Adam Hoge's assessment of Wisconsin's starting TE: a walk-on former QB who's not on scholarship.  Wisconsin is a rag-tag patchwork quilt that has only been formally challenged by NFL-calibur talent once, and they lost.

What Ohio State has is potential that has been bestowed upon them by their genes - they can run faster and hit harder.  The only reason Wisconsin was able to come back in that game is because their O-line held on virtually every play, and just after getting called for holding the first time in the game in the 4th quarter, Russell Wilson threw up a duck to a guy who was wide-open by 30 yards.

Wisconsin is impressive because they're playing slow, physical football against terrible teams.  Our pass-rush defense has awoken, and I would not want to play us right now, particularly because there isn't a whole lot of film to go off of.

Oh yeah, and you guys forgot to discuss one important thing - Boom Herron+Mike Adams.  You only mentioned Boom when talking about Clarke's return.  But go back to last year's tape.  Look at what Boom was able to do against Wisconsin.  He single-handedly led us back into that game after not touching the ball in the 1st quarter.

Ohio State CAN throw forward passes.  They CHOSE not to throw any last week.

Brax. will be in much better condition for this game (at least at the start) than he was for the putrid orange & blue( I hate anything or anyone associated with that color combo).So if we can run the score up quickly, say maybe 6-0 we'll be fine. GO BUCKS! 

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Be sure and stay away from Starbucks.I here The Hairy Bikers are really angry at The 1%ers, and it could boil over being this close to The 1%ers high holy day.Just a little advice from the older generation.

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
