Michigan shut out Illinois, I know they're no good but could the bucks do that? It will be a dark day when Michigan rolls out a better defense then us...not a sermon, just a thought

dbit's picture

Multiple people on Twitter are confirming Boren is warming up as the other LB alongside Shazier!
This is going to be an interesting development to watch

BROSEPH's picture

Weather = Perfect

BUCKfutter's picture

A lot of teams would have shut out Illinois today.  Pretty obvious why they were recruiting penn state's players.

the kids are playing their tail off, and the coaches are screwing it up! - JLS

STONEY'S ALIVE!! HE'S ALIVE!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Wtf is Braxton doing running circles

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Phillys gotta catch that! Nice pass by Miller.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

TOuch down Corey Brown!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

BuckGuy003's picture

I've seen three tackles that could have been stopped. Eventually gonna call those late hits on Indy 

D. Anthony's picture

We really need a passing game...We seem to have all the pieces and even Indiana with a back-up QB averages 300yrds a game passing. Once we get just an average passing game we'll be unstoppable.

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

I agree..our passing game is well below average.

BUCKEYES BABY!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

This option offense is going to stunt Braxtons growth as a passer.

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Braxton stares down his primary receiver and can't read D's at all BUT I love'em and take him over a gunslinger with no elusiveness. 

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

Eh I'll take a guy that can pick defenses apart with his arm. I'll take Brady and the Mannings over Vicks and Newtons anyday of the week.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Look at Boren on the coverage there! Nice!

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

If the rest the B1G ever learns how to catch we could be in trouble.

D. Anthony's picture

Our secondary's best weapon is the dropped pass... I've never seen so many dropped passes against us as I've seen this year.

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

I'm glad Rod Smith is actually getting meaningful carries.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

JESUS CHRIST DEVIN SMITH!!! You're making me not want to have a man crush on you anymore.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

There's our offense! Braxton running..

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

My god Braxton threw a duck!

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

Brax needs to learn that sometimes the two or three yard dump off pass is a better choice

D. Anthony's picture

Stoneburner has gained some weight when you think he'd slim down with the move to wideout

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

He was never really "fat"..so it's hard to slim down when you're relatively lean already.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

10-0, I'll take it. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Omg someone puked all over Death Valley!!!
oh wait..that's South Carolina's uniforms!?!? Yuck

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

INDIANA IS HORRIBLE!! Friggin garbage!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

There's that great defense..

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

Annnndddd that's what happens with bad linebacker and safety play. Ugh.

Buckeyejason's picture

Lets see some more Rod Smith! I think I'm coming around..

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Please don't use the term "Silver Bullets" any longer until the D earns it. I hate when they refer to the Nebraska "Black Shirts" when it's been years since they've had a good D as well. Those nicknames have to be earned by great play.

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

They had a top 5 defense in 2009 with Suh.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Catch the damn ball! Geez!

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Could have caught it but Braxton thru a bullet behind him when he was wide open

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

Wtf is Braxton doin!?! 

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Is this Navy wearing Scarlet and Gray?

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

Nah Navy passes more lol

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Why don't we ever play well in the 1st quarter? Seems to just be a habit for this team now.

BUCKEYES BABY!

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

We CANNOT PASS against the worst D in the bad BIG Ten

D. Anthony

Angler's picture

Scary when you think about it.

cplunk's picture

Boren and Williams took the same guy on the punt protection. Dammit.

Buckeyejason's picture

Is this team ever prepared or fired up to play before games? Doesnt seem like it! What happened to Urban being a mad motivator?

BUCKEYES BABY!

cajunbuckeye's picture

WTF!!! Indiana can run at will on the Buckeye D?

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Angler's picture

Rod Smith wants the ball

D. Anthony's picture

He's hungery and runs so hard

D. Anthony

cajunbuckeye's picture

The Rod Smith return calmed me down a little

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Buckeyejason's picture

The funny thing is we'll still win by 20.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Braxton sucks today 

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

right now our offense looks a little like last year. Where are the screens and quick routes?

Buckeyejason's picture

Hyde would've had a great run if Braxton would've game him the ball.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Angler's picture

He's making ridiculous decisions. WTF

Buckeyejason's picture

Why throw it short of the 1st down?

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

With the way Braxton watches his target, I don't know why we don't do more double move routes. A hook and go with an arm pump would be wicked against a D after a drive or two of our run game.

D. Anthony's picture

Where's the Guiton QB-ing with Braxton in the backfield I heard we've been practicing. I think he reads D's way better and we should use the formation at least a few times each quarter.

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

Seems to smart of an idea for the coaches to actually do that lol

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Sick run by Hyde! That was Beanie!ish 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Idaho Helga's picture

woof! Had problems  getting radio broadcast.  Internet problems.
 

Angler's picture

Brown has good straight line speed but he is no Percy Harvin

D. Anthony's picture

Who is? Percy was voted as the top offensive threat in the NFC on Mike and Mike :)

D. Anthony

Angler's picture

True but announcers threw out the comparison

Buckeyejason's picture

That and Percy knew how to build his body as well. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Lucky that ball want picked

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

Yeah. More air under that and thrown to the back corner is an easy TD.

Buckeyejason's picture

Can we ever throw the ball to Evan Spencer? 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Angler's picture

Are you shitting me?

Buckeyejason's picture

So we suck on offense, defense..and special teams? Sweet

BUCKEYES BABY!

tennbuckeye19's picture

Oh my goodness. We are giving this game away.

Idaho Helga's picture

I missed a bunch due to internet.                 dang. Now that I'm here, uh, bucks, whatever! This is Indiana!
 

cajunbuckeye's picture

They always start slow, they always start slow, they always start slow.......

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Buckeyejason's picture

THEY ALWAYS START SLOW

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

I-O.   Braxton really goes to his primary receiver EVERY single time unless he scrambles around first and it's kinda a broken play.

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

Howard's guy of coarse.

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Here's where we score on several possessions in a row. Let's GO!

D. Anthony

Buckeyejason's picture

STONEY'S ALIVE! HES ALIVE!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Arm punt?

BUCKEYES BABY!

Angler's picture

Wonder if Nathan Williams is gonna suit up at the half LOL.

Buckeyejason's picture

There we go!

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

I think that might have hit the ground. Oh crap, they just blew the whistle
 

cajunbuckeye's picture

Not sure about the offensive scheme for this evening. We can't pound the football on Indiana?

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

Buckeyejason's picture

I thought Chris Fields was done here? Why is he out on the field.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

If Braxton didn't throw a ground ball this wouldn't be a problem right now 

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

I think he was trying to spike it to stop the clock.

D. Anthony

cplunk's picture

We could also try stopping people on defense sometime this year

Buckeyejason's picture

That's what SB defense looks like

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Gotta love Boren!

BUCKEYES BABY!

GET CREAM OFF THE FUCKIN SCREEN!!!!

Big Hank eatin!

BUCKEYES BABY!

D. Anthony's picture

Can we use those quick passes like Indiana does and we did in the spring game?

D. Anthony

cplunk's picture

Why do we always seem to putter around until some big play wakes us up?

Buckeyejason's picture

Roby has sick ball skills! Maybe best here in a LONG TIME

Sooner or later, Devin Smith is gonna get ya.

d.bradfordii's picture

That was a good pass!

DEB II

Buckeyejason's picture

We need to throw some more of those to Devin.

BUCKEYES BABY!

cajunbuckeye's picture

Thats just sick! Big play. Nice touch from Braxton

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

D. Anthony's picture

That was a Warren Moon throw/spiral from Braxton.

D. Anthony

Angler's picture

Kick off team is serious

Buckeyejason's picture

All he does is catch TD's.

BUCKEYES BABY!

cplunk's picture

Need to stop them here. They get the ball first second half. Cant give up a late one.

BuckGuy003's picture

Man I love seein those long bombs!!!

cajunbuckeye's picture

Will we ever get it together in the first quarter?

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

d.bradfordii's picture

If the defense had laid a glove on IU's RB we'd probably be up 24-0.  They've got to tackle better

DEB II

UrbanCulture's picture

My first half thoughts: Our passing game is ongs bombs and little 7 yard passes. We have absolutely no intermediate passing game. Our defense wouldnt have to rely on drops if we would just play some tight man defense out wide. Good to see noah spence out there tho.

Buckeyejason's picture

J.Lehman was a badass LB for Illinois.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Johnson has a 40 inch vertical and couldn't get that?

BUCKEYES BABY!

Aaannndddd the defense starts out flat.

Buckeyejason's picture

Braxton be flying 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Braxton is just insane 

BUCKEYES BABY!

d.bradfordii's picture

He's 10 times better than Pryor!

DEB II

cplunk's picture

In Pryor's defense, he didn't have the Urban offensive system

d.bradfordii's picture

True, but he waited to take off a lot of the time. Braxton just explodes

DEB II

cplunk's picture

Braxton is sick, for sure. I think Brax is better than Pryor too, but I don't think Pryor gets enough credit. He had Bollman's offensive lines and conservative play calling/offensive scheming and still accomplished a heck of a lot.

d.bradfordii's picture

Your right. Miller just made a major fuhbar, that hurt.

DEB II

d.bradfordii's picture

What about now ESPN?

Poor choice. Come on Braxton. Throw the ball away

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

D. Anthony's picture

I really thought Braxton would be a better passer than Denard but he definitely isn't. Not yet.

D. Anthony

cplunk's picture

You're underestimating how bad Denard is. Not saying Braxton is good right now, but compare their stats. Braxton is a much better passer than Denard. Denard is that bad.

D. Anthony's picture

Yes Denard throws more arm punts but he's also been more accurate...he's played against Bama and ND's D so his stats are going to be a little worse
 

D. Anthony

cplunk's picture

His completion percentage is ten points less than Braxton's and he has five more INTs. He is not more accurate than Braxton.

D. Anthony's picture

We went 10 years without giving up as many long plays as we have te last 1.5 years....and we have the most talent in the BIG. WTF. You have to ultimately put it on coaching.

Was that last Indian TD an illegal pick?

Love having Guiton as the backup. I trust him when we need him.

LouGroza's picture

What blows me away is with all the mistakes we ALL see, look at the points on the board! What happens when Devin makes the catches, Braxton doesn't force things and we have zero punts blocked? Look the hell out when it all gels. 

cplunk's picture

PLUS I'd like to think we'll add to that a defense that actually stops people and gets the ball right back to our offense.

Angler's picture

True.. but we should handle Indiana.

cajunbuckeye's picture

I'll be rolling out the Carlos Hyde Bandwagon again tomorrow

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

cplunk's picture

Ha. Rod Smith has used this game to simultaneously remind us all why we know he could be awesome and why he doesn't play that much.
I really wish Hall wasn't hurt. He and Hyde playing at the same time makes them both even more effective because of their contrasting styles. Yes, more effective than the 300+ rushing yards we have tonight.

andretolstoy's picture

Guys our defense isn't good. We don't have the talent and experience yet. It's a hard pill to swallow but we ought to. We can't make these players into something they're not.

D. Anthony's picture

Love Hyde but think Smith has a higher ceiling. Looks faster and more shifty if he can learn to secure the ball like Eddie did, game on.

bergy22's picture

What the heck is going on?

cplunk's picture

Our defense is bad this year. Really bad. We're basically West Virginia, but we run instead of pass. The D looked good against MSU because MSU's offense perfectly matched up with our D's strengths. We'll look good against Wisconsin for the same reason. Anybody who can spread a little or go up tempo will own our D this year. Shouldn't be a shock. Not sure why people were thinking we'd shut out Indiana or, for that matter, anybody.
That said, I'll take wins anyway we can get them. It's a practice year anyway, but wins help recruiting and we definitely need more linebacker and safety talent.

HolyBuckeye1093's picture

We REALLY miss Nate Williams! No pass rush at all!

cajunbuckeye's picture

DO we have a sack tonight?

This defense is really horrible. We have given up 49 points to Indiana. In 35 seconds they put up 8 pts. They just announced it, a new record! The most points ever scored by an Indiana O on an Ohio State D.

Hey D-heads. How many players were we missing tonight on an already average D?

Jdadams01's picture

Our second string D should hold Indiana to less than 30. Come on.

OSUNeedles's picture

That wasnt a win...

Still a higher scoring game than the Wisky-PSU BTT basketball game.

The worst part is, it's the same crap that keeps getting the D. That's coaching.

We just gave up 49 points to Indiana. I never thought I'd ever say that.

Steve Earle Bruce Springsteen's picture

Clean house on the defensive staff after this season. We have to fear every team but perhaps Illinois the rest of the way with a defense like this.

The North remembers.

Urbs was out coached.

At least at the end of the game. 

Jdadams01's picture

Urban wasn't calling defensive schemes. He might start, though.

Urban has got to be seething.

Steve Earle Bruce Springsteen's picture

Bring back Heacock tomorrow. 

The North remembers.

d.bradfordii's picture

At least we won, ugly as it was we are 7-0. Indiana got a BS call on the on-side kick, that guys foot was touching as he threw the ball. We won.  Our defense sucks, thank God our offense doesn't. Hopefully we can recriut some linebackers and safeties.

DEB II

741's picture

There is no reason to hate on 7-0 this year. Go Bucks!

Geraffi's picture

Feels like 6-1 after that nightmare. I hear what your saying, but our D was terrible. They took the 4th quarter off. No pressure on the QB the entire game. Missed a half dozen opportunities for interceptions. Gave up huge plays. I know they're down a few guys, but tonight's effort was absurd. Feels like loss. 

d.bradfordii's picture

I agree, 7-0 is better than 0-7

DEB II

Seabass1974's picture

I remember someone wanting us to be more like Baylor. Well, there you go. We are Baylor North.
 
Anyways, I'll take the win. I knew Indiana would be rough on us because they have a passing game. Any team this season that can throw will give us fits.
