Great 1st half! No complaints. Guys are playin their asses off!

Bollman finally wakes up, or he was kidnapped.

Is it just me, or did he shave his mustache?  Maybe Fickel put him in a figure-four leg-lock, shaved the evil thing off, then told him his manhood was next if he didn't start calling plays better.  Yeah.

Sorry, that was the Captain talking...

Braxton Miller + confidence = pretty damn good.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

I never...ever...ever want to see Joe Bauserman in an Ohio State uniform ever again. Period. Amen. I don't lay this on the defense at all. I lay this on the fact that Joe Bauserman is Tate Forcier minus the talent.

I have never followed vegas until this year.....this shit is fixed...

Bauserman should voluntarily sumbit his scholarship after today.  I dont like to be this guy but he has no balls what so ever.

Bauserman is  no. 2 on the depth chart because....????

Tonight we saw once again that you need to have a competent backup QB. For 3 years, we haven't had one, and we've been lucky that Pryor was always able to fight through the pain. Once Miller went down tonight, our offense went out with him. How sad.

madhatterhater's picture

I didnt really help that the walrus completely abandoned the run with five minutes left.  How many screens did OSU run today?  I know one went for a touchdown!

The Buckeyes have really been very fortunate over the years to have good health at QB.

You have to wonder what anyone ever saw in Bauserman to think he could play in the Big Ten. At least he had some drops against Miami. But aside from his one completion tonight, a nice job standing in the pocket vs. the blitz, nothing else was even close to a half-decent pass, much less a complete one.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Joe... Bauserman... is... not... good.

Always prepare for and expect victory, don't brace for defeat. If defeat happens learn and never let it happen again.

Hey Bucks...I quit too

I honestly think the average high school QB can make a better throw than Joe Bauserman. He is God awful.

amk1616's picture

imo...pretty easy to break this one down....a string of 3 and outs by us followed by pounding drives by nebraska killed us.  we couldn't buy a first down in the second half.  our defense wore down and they ran all over our a&&.  just pathetic play calling in the second half.  absolute discrace. 


somebody should resign/quit before the next game.

Baus is at the 49-48-47...Now he throws...only 10 yards over the receivers head this time

sad sad sad...i had a friend who is a Neb fan call me during the game to thank us for not putting braxton back in the game...i would rather watch belasari play...seriously!

Why isn't Guiton moved to WR/DB/KR? Why was he recruited? He must be awful to not be #2, making me ask the qustion of why is a scholarship being wasted?

Buckeye06's picture

I know Baus is going to get the blame, and a lot of it is earned, but I think you lay this loss on the D.  They just stopped sittingin their lanes and gave up way too many big plays

Michael's picture

I don't want to see Bauserman ever play another down, but this falls heavily on the defense too. 28 unanswered. Even putting the first TD on Braxton, the last three were for 80, 72 and 78 yards, respectively.

That's a huge defensive problem. You don't give up 34 points and expect to win games.

madhatterhater's picture

I still think a timely time out would have help out.  With this being an ABC game it would have been a long time out and let the d catch there breath.

What can you say. If Miller can't play with a turned ankle he's a wimp.  That said the d fell apart if Miller plays the entire game we win.  FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFk!

ohiowhitesnake's picture

im throwing may be the 37 beers in the 4th qtr or watching bauserman...maybe both....stop the yelling. it hurts


frozen buckeye's picture

we beat the spread. can someone set me up with an IV alcohol drip for the rest of the season??

Jugdish's picture

Baus should never get another rep in practice. Graham and Guiton need to get ready for next year. Fickell really lost this one. Hyde was getting about 4 yards per carry and the score was tied. Who in the hell would call a pass play for Baus? We could have taken time off the clock and got in position for a field goal.

The defense gave up knowing that Baus couldn't do anything. Fickell lost the game, and the team, when he insisted on playing Baus. What is the definition of insanity?

buckeye20's picture

I have never seen an Ohio State team fold like that. 

Cubbies115's picture

The D fell apart? They were on the field for 26 of the 30 second half minutes....I never wish injury on college athletes but since Bauserman is as old as me, I say burn in hell. Make a single good throw on !st, 2Nd or 3rd down. Seriously Luke must be blind or afraid to be a head coach, because any, I mean any FBS QB's could have managed that team to a win. I was upest over the 2 losses this year, this hands down is the worse. I will not watch another game where Bauserman is atleast potentially entering the game. 

flipbuckeye's picture

Bauserman is our Nick Sheridan. Can Kenny G or Taylor Graham be that much worse that they don't get a shot??

ohiowhitesnake's picture

lets all cheer for our bucks in th NFL...beanie is having a good yr


Kalamazoo Steve's picture

Was a first down pass called before the lead was lost?

mike78's picture

Bauserman = NEVER AGAIN.  There is absolutely no way Graham or Guiton could be worse.

sfgoody's picture

so crazy.  we all think we're gonna get pummeled pre game. the hand wringing reached epic proportions.  fans on suicide watch worldwide. then we come out and punch them in the mouth for a half. then we systematically wear down, show our youth (or get injured) and lose the game. and then we decide we want everyone fired, benched, court martialed, etc. what a fickell group we are. anyone else think that maybe just maybe neb didn't give us enough thought at first, deservedly so as it turns out, then realized they better start bringing it before we derail their season? the kids played hard. you can't deny it. blame it on fick, blame it on the def, blame it on baus, blah blah blah. face it: the better team wins when the chips are down.  sometimes you gotta give the other guys credit.  they're on scholarship too, right? we're getting better, but we aren't good.  yet....


Cubbies115's picture

Not winning this game is on Fick and Baus...IF it is broken fix it because apperently Bauserman is not the answer. Try something new when the plan fails time and time again Nebraska was not the better team, Just never gave up, unlike the Buckeyes 

Rav747's picture


It's clear that both sides on the ball step up and play their best when miller or someone competent plays. Clearly Joe ain't it!! Why does Luke keep playing him. It's beyond frustrating to watch him step on the field.

Time to give some other qb a shot. I will gladly volunteer my services. I suck, but I know I can throw 5-10 and possibly, 13.25 yards with some accuracy. And I'm sure most of you guys are better than me.
