John Simon Sacks the Entire World as OSU Escapes

Braxton Miller and the offense had probably their worst game of the season (managing only 236 total yards and 21 points), but thanks to Bret Bielema being, well, Bret Bielema, the Buckeyes were able to hold on in what was an insane overtime finish. Montee Ball had an insane game, but when it counted the defense came up huge, most notably on a goal line stand that eventually ended with Ryan Shazier evolving into Charizard and forcing a fumble.

John Simon and Ryan Shazier are pretty much the undisputed heroes tonight. Simon's four sacks were key, and Shazier was everywhere.

A lot will be said about the lack of El Guapo throughout the game, but a win is a win is a win and hey guess what?

It's Michigan week, baby. RAAAAGGGEEEEEEEEEEE!

Hey can someone let Matt Millen know that Ohio State won the game?

LadyBuck's picture

I don't know if he could tell. He was too busy salivating over Montee Ball.

Hell, I was watching the game with my hair turning more gray by the moment, and totally forgot I made a nice little wager on this game when Wisky opened up as a 2.5 point favorite.

This. Don't think you can read too much into this game outside of the fact that our D played like grown ass men. Camp Randall is a friggin twilight zone in which 9 times out of 10 something bad will happen to OSU. 
Exhausted, but holy hell we're 11-0!

brylee's picture

Defense won the game...
Wasn't entirely sure we would be able to say this a few weeks ago.

avail31678's picture

And what's funny is....they didn't really contain Montee at all.  Everything that needed to happen for us to win, supposedly, didn't.  And we still won.  Our offense was abismal - it was supposed to outshine Wisky's.  Our D did NOT contain Ball like it did Leveon Bell. 
Yet, we find a way to win.  This season/team is magical.
Ryan Shazier, John Simon, Bradley Roby, John Hankins et al were HEROES today.
Some recent write-up on here about someone's (maybe BIG NEtwork?) assessment of the top players in the BIG left Shazier off, or had him surprisingly low....he is very much an all-conference player IMO, and I think worthy of All-American - if not this year, next year.

No option plays (that I saw) this week.  Maybe they noticed Northwestern had success with it against the sun and blue.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I don't think you can discount this as a factor. It didn't look much like our normal offense, that's for sure.
Having said that, if Stoneburner doesn't drop two first downs early, the end result on offense might have looked a lot different. Our big problem today was that we couldn't pass on third down.

I am so glad the defense showed up today.  I've been alarmed by them at various points during the year but this was the first time I was really more comfortable to have them on the field than the offense.  Granted, the offense had an off-day, but the defense was really astounding.

I don't know. It just seemed like he hadn't done all that much this season, that's all. He sure has now.

buckeyedude's picture

OMG. You haven't been paying attention, VHX7. Simon is the leader of the defense. When Simon plays well, which is nearly every game, the Buckeyes win.

Did we go three-and-out on every possion in the second half? Sure seemed like it. The defense played in beast mode tonight. This W definitely came off of their shoulders

No, they moved the ball into Badger territory once, but the drive fizzled after we inexplicably threw deep on first down. In the fourth quarter, we had one first down before Hall was called for holding followed by the Thomas PF.

This win is entirely credited to the defense and Corey Brown's punt return
Offense was mostly terrible, both due to playcalling and just bad execution.

Big win. When that game goes into OT, 99 out of 100 people take Wisky, but we find a way to win. Biggest decision of the night? Why did Wisky put us on offense when our D had been on the field practically the last seven minutes and had just been scored on? I know it's standard to some people, but I think it was a really bad choice. Be interested to see what other people think.
Offense stopped being creative today. At times they moved easily, mixing passing, running, and Braxton. When it was just Braxton, we became one-dimensional. Still, first down in OT was huge.
Finally, Shazier. Credit Millen for noticing him at least. I don't need to hear any more conversations about the nation's best LBs without his name in it.

buckeyedude's picture

Why did Wisky put us on offense when our D had been on the field practically the last seven minutes and had just been scored on?

Because that way they would know what they had to do....TD or field goal, to win.
But I get your point. Teams always want to have the opportunity to score and win the game last. But, the OSU defense played mutha frickin L-I-G-H-T-S O-U-T!
Poor Baby Beliema. :(
 PLUS! WE GOT THAT MORATTIE DUDE! THAT STRESSES STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING! OUR GUYS HAVE STAMINA! WE LOVE OT!

 

 

onetwentyeight's picture

Don't forget we sqeaked one out in East Lansing right before the demolition of Nebraska in the Shoe. I'm not saying the coaching staff holds "back" on offensive playcalling in certain games in anticipation for the next one ... I'm just saying don't be surprised if we drop 50+ on TSUN.

Ohio State could beat Notre Dame and would match up well with K-State, so you're wrong. Way wrong. OSU IS a Top 5 team and would get the Rose Bowl if eligible, prolly vs. UCLA. Not even the best of the best look their best every single week. Just ask Bama. Cut the Buckeyes some slack. Not many teams can win on the road in hostile environments the way OSU has including the teams in the Top 5. I respect everyone's opinion. But you sir, are wrong.

cplunk's picture

Man, I agree that we'd beat ND ad I'm not sure about KState, but you know what? It doesn't matter. Not one bit. We don't play ND, KState, Oregon, Alabama, etc.
We play one more game, against TSUN. Win that game and we walk away from this year- our seniors walk away from this year - knowing that nobody beat this team. NOBODY.
everything else is hypothetical and doesn't mean a damn thing.
In one week I get to watch these seniors walk off the field having done something that very few college teams in any conference, versus any competition, can do. That's all that matters.

sloopy88's picture

Absolutely agree about what matters.  I like hearing positive chatter but at the end of the day all that really matters to me is that when the Bucks walk onto a field, they walk off winners.  I don't want to take next week for granted, but if they pull it off then no hypothetical other games are going to spoil that moment for me (or, I hope, for them).

We're talking about a record currently held by Travis Prentice, which should be the first indication this might not be that big a deal.
All the talk about the record ended up working to our benefit. If Ball hadn't been so determined to force-feed making it happen at home, he wouldn't have held the ball out so recklessly on the play where he fumbled.

onetwentyeight's picture

The thing about that last Montee run which he fumbled is ... they could have EASILY scored on us that drive. BUT. You could just tell fat-face Bielma was gonna force feed Montee the ball to let him get his token record TD in front of a home crowd. I was yelling at my TV for us to stack the box, 9, 10, hell even 11 men up the middle. Bielma had basically announced to the world that they weren't gonna let anybody but Montee score that TD no matter what ... and it cost them the game. If he had put record-breaking aside for a moment (what is it with that guy & records? running up the score on Indiana? desperately trying to get Montee the record at the expense of the game?) they could've run a Play Action or bootleg that we probably wouldn't have stopped. (To that playmaker TE of theirs or to Abberdies or w/e his name is too exhausted to bother). But NOPE OLE BRETT WAS GON GIT DAT TD RECORD COME HELL OR HIGH WATER 

I wonder how Urban Meyer felt.
 
HAHAHAHA. 

buckeyedude's picture

I was thinking the same thing. That was almost as predictable as a Walrus led, goal line play.

 

 

NW Buckeye's picture

Completely agree with you.  Everyone knew it was going to be Ball with the ball.  A bootleg may have been a better choice.  Yet, I think there was a little more behind it than just getting the TD record.  It was 4th and less than a half yard for a 1st, or just short of a yard for a TD (maybe I'm being nice to the WI coaching staff here giving them the benefit of the doubt).  Had it been 4th and goal maybe they would have switched it up.  But, I am really glad they elected to run Ball up the gut.

I love this team and I actually love the fact that we will end the season on Michigan this year.  This really is my favorite team every.  Even when they get someone's best shot they find a way to win.  What a team what a team WHAT A TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Damn straight! Ohio State coming off a big OT road win over Wisconsin is MUCH more advantageous than Ohio State coming off a big OT road loss to Wisconsin. Fred Flintstone and Michicant are running into a buzzsaw.

Still kicking myself for not betting my life savings on Stanford. Anyone could've predicted the Cardinal beating that 21.5 point spread.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

"most notably on a goal line stand that eventually ended with Ryan Shazier evolving into Charizard and forcing a fumble."
