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

Love this line:

hey, if I didn't know any better --- I'd swear the ESPiN play-by-play "talent", (I think it's Dave something) has money on Illinois. How pissed was he that Ron Zook didn't call a timeout at the end of the half? (Frankly, I don't blame Zook---they're O is getting dominated by our D, and it's not like the ball is at the OSU 10, it's at midfield.)

But, the play-by-play guy is really pissed about it. Maybe he's a little to invested in this game. He is pulling for Illinois big-time. Like when OSU was pinned inside their own 10 and Buchanan got off a great punt, Dave was disppointed, you could just sense it in his voice.

I love that we're running the same gameplan that we ran last year after TP got hurt.  Dear Illinois, we're running the ball... Sincerely, tOSU.  Worked in a windy game then, hopefully it works again this year.

How do we not have a QB capable of throwing the ball? Im not even tallking making decisions or reading defenses just throw a f*ckin spiral!? Im not against running the ball but this second half Illini is not going to let us run. We are going to have to eventually throw the ball if we want to win this thing!

I'd try Taylor Graham for a series.

Jim Bollman ---- dude has Broyles Award written alllll over him

we are tOSU, Boom is back, it's windy as hell... Illinois does not determine wether we run or not.  We run it down their throat, the bullets shut them down.  That's how we win.

chitown buckeye's picture

I understand the situation. It just blows my mind that we have watched nothing but "ducks" thrown all year long!

Ground floor futures bet:

Joe Bausermen for Heisman and Jim Bollman for the Broyles Award ... parlayed @ 100,000,000,000 : 1 odds.

I'm crossing my fingers that futures bet I made in August is gonna come through by the end of the season.

Commander Woodrow Hayes just called. He said "big wind or no wind, this is how you play football."

 

Go Bucks!  Go Boom Herron.

Woody definately approves of this gameplan... should we hang on and win, Fickell definately gets Woody points

three things can happen when you throw the football and two of them are bad.

fortunately for us our one completion today is a touchdown.

Nurse, Nurse, Where are my 6:00 PM drugs.

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

We know our O sucks, but now can they eat clock.

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

from now on if you want to catch passes at OSU you have to play corner or safety. Woodrow as deemed that the 3yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offense is back, baby.

2 Weeks to get ready for the big one.  Hope they can rest up and work on some good football.
