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
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
Weather = Perfect
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!!
Run_Fido's favorite word is strawman.
Wtf is Braxton doing running circles
Phillys gotta catch that! Nice pass by Miller.
TOuch down Corey Brown!!
I've seen three tackles that could have been stopped. Eventually gonna call those late hits on Indy
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.
I agree..our passing game is well below average.
The piranhas smell blood!!!
Christian "Anderson Russell" Bryant
This option offense is going to stunt Braxtons growth as a passer.
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.
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.
Look at Boren on the coverage there! Nice!
If the rest the B1G ever learns how to catch we could be in trouble.
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.
I'm glad Rod Smith is actually getting meaningful carries.
JESUS CHRIST DEVIN SMITH!!! You're making me not want to have a man crush on you anymore.
There's our offense! Braxton running..
My god Braxton threw a duck!
Brax needs to learn that sometimes the two or three yard dump off pass is a better choice
Stoneburner has gained some weight when you think he'd slim down with the move to wideout
He was never really "fat"..so it's hard to slim down when you're relatively lean already.
10-0, I'll take it.
Omg someone puked all over Death Valley!!!
oh wait..that's South Carolina's uniforms!?!? Yuck
INDIANA IS HORRIBLE!! Friggin garbage!
There's that great defense..
Annnndddd that's what happens with bad linebacker and safety play. Ugh.
Lets see some more Rod Smith! I think I'm coming around..
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.
They had a top 5 defense in 2009 with Suh.
Catch the damn ball! Geez!
Could have caught it but Braxton thru a bullet behind him when he was wide open
Wtf is Braxton doin!?!
Is this Navy wearing Scarlet and Gray?
Nah Navy passes more lol
Why don't we ever play well in the 1st quarter? Seems to just be a habit for this team now.
AAnnnnddd it's getting a little ugly
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Miller the dancing queen
We CANNOT PASS against the worst D in the bad BIG Ten
Scary when you think about it.
Boren and Williams took the same guy on the punt protection. Dammit.
Is this team ever prepared or fired up to play before games? Doesnt seem like it! What happened to Urban being a mad motivator?
This is pitiful
WTF!!! Indiana can run at will on the Buckeye D?
Rod Smith wants the ball
He's hungery and runs so hard
The Rod Smith return calmed me down a little
The funny thing is we'll still win by 20.
Braxton sucks today
right now our offense looks a little like last year. Where are the screens and quick routes?
Hyde would've had a great run if Braxton would've game him the ball.
He's making ridiculous decisions. WTF
Why throw it short of the 1st down?
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.
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.
Seems to smart of an idea for the coaches to actually do that lol
Sick run by Hyde! That was Beanie!ish
woof! Had problems getting radio broadcast. Internet problems.
Brown has good straight line speed but he is no Percy Harvin
Who is? Percy was voted as the top offensive threat in the NFC on Mike and Mike :)
True but announcers threw out the comparison
That and Percy knew how to build his body as well.
Lucky that ball want picked
Yeah. More air under that and thrown to the back corner is an easy TD.
Can we ever throw the ball to Evan Spencer?
Are you shitting me?
So we suck on offense, defense..and special teams? Sweet
Oh my goodness. We are giving this game away.
I missed a bunch due to internet. dang. Now that I'm here, uh, bucks, whatever! This is Indiana!
They always start slow, they always start slow, they always start slow.......
THEY ALWAYS START SLOW
I-O. Braxton really goes to his primary receiver EVERY single time unless he scrambles around first and it's kinda a broken play.
Howard's guy of coarse.
pick 6 due
Here's where we score on several possessions in a row. Let's GO!
STONEY'S ALIVE! HES ALIVE!
Wonder if Nathan Williams is gonna suit up at the half LOL.
There we go!
I think that might have hit the ground. Oh crap, they just blew the whistle
Not sure about the offensive scheme for this evening. We can't pound the football on Indiana?
I thought Chris Fields was done here? Why is he out on the field.
If Braxton didn't throw a ground ball this wouldn't be a problem right now
I think he was trying to spike it to stop the clock.
We could also try stopping people on defense sometime this year
That's what SB defense looks like
Gotta love Boren!
GET CREAM OFF THE FUCKIN SCREEN!!!!
Roby with another punt block fumble recovery td!!
Just when I want to turn it off... Yes...GO BUCKS
Now is when the stomping begins!
Big Hank eatin!
Can we use those quick passes like Indiana does and we did in the spring game?
Why do we always seem to putter around until some big play wakes us up?
Roby has sick ball skills! Maybe best here in a LONG TIME
Roby on time again!
Rod Smith F'in up
Hyde looked pretty fast turning the corner
Indiana has ugly cheerleader chicks with long skirts from the 70's
Braxon delaying that too long
There he goes again!
Sooner or later, Devin Smith is gonna get ya.
That was a good pass!
We need to throw some more of those to Devin.
Thats just sick! Big play. Nice touch from Braxton
That was a Warren Moon throw/spiral from Braxton.
Kick off team is serious
All he does is catch TD's.
Need to stop them here. They get the ball first second half. Cant give up a late one.
Man I love seein those long bombs!!!
Will we ever get it together in the first quarter?
If the defense had laid a glove on IU's RB we'd probably be up 24-0. They've got to tackle better
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.
J.Lehman was a badass LB for Illinois.
Johnson has a 40 inch vertical and couldn't get that?
Aaannndddd the defense starts out flat.
ESPn is flashing an "Upset Alert" on us already, Christ the second half just started!
Braxton be flying
Braxton is just insane
He's 10 times better than Pryor!
In Pryor's defense, he didn't have the Urban offensive system
True, but he waited to take off a lot of the time. Braxton just explodes
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.
Your right. Miller just made a major fuhbar, that hurt.
What about now ESPN?
WOW!! That is all.
Thank you so much for the block Mr. Referee!
This game will get out of control soon.
Big Man Running
Hyde was smoking that time!
Poor choice. Come on Braxton. Throw the ball away
I really thought Braxton would be a better passer than Denard but he definitely isn't. Not yet.
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.
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
His completion percentage is ten points less than Braxton's and he has five more INTs. He is not more accurate than Braxton.
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.
Wasn't Wynn supposed to come to osu? What happened to that? Grades?
This defense pisses me off
Me too, WTF
Braxton's reads are off
Lets watch them stack the box and not audible out of it. Then lets run right into it
Smith > Hyde
Not so fast. Hyde=Smith
Don't know what goes on in practice but damn why doesn't R. smith play more??
Was that last Indian TD an illegal pick?
Come on Kenny
Love having Guiton as the backup. I trust him when we need him.
Kenny Guiton, reader of defenses.
Where is the d line seriously?
Defense comes up big..
Still looked like he got his arm under the ball after the bobble without it touching the ground
Looking forward to Paul Keels learning everybody's name.
Devin Smith would be a good receiver if he could catch
Anyone else surprised Buckeye fans didn't fill those empty seats?
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.
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.
True.. but we should handle Indiana.
I'll be rolling out the Carlos Hyde Bandwagon again tomorrow
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.
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.
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.
D-line is getting handled on pass plays!
Same leg Klein hurt kicking his girlfriend out of his apartment
Boren is playing better defense than the real defense, UGHHH
What the heck is going on?
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.
We REALLY miss Nate Williams! No pass rush at all!
DO we have a sack tonight?
Don't think so
Devin! He'd have 4 TDs tonight if he could catch consistently
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Smith.
Fickle we accept your resignation!
That would be music to my ears!!!
We have not had one call go our way the entire night.
Defense is an absolute embarrassment.
Can we say bye bye Fickell yet?
well...Fickle your the next contestant on looking for a job in 2013
2012 Beat Michigan Tail gate: UFM: "Let’s beat the sh*t out of Michigan, have a good night."
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.
We should move down to #15 in the rankings...we don't deserve 8
Bye bye top 10, too.
God your awful Fickle...that pizza guy was right! Hire that guy to run the D! Ok...I'm kidding but seriously that was bad bad bad
OSU defense 2012 = Makes opposing offenses look damn good
Hey D-heads. How many players were we missing tonight on an already average D?
Our second string D should hold Indiana to less than 30. Come on.
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.
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.
Urban wasn't calling defensive schemes. He might start, though.
Urban has got to be seething.
Bring back Heacock tomorrow.
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.
There is no reason to hate on 7-0 this year. Go Bucks!
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.
I agree, 7-0 is better than 0-7
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.
