So, much like your username, are you high all the time?

Is it going to be an actual live blog or just refreshing comments?....for some reason the last few games of last year i could only refresh comments...

Go Bucks!  No injuries!

Touchback---  Cannon Johnston!

I can't believe we have to listen to that man Beth Mowins and Joey Galloway.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Lets Go Bucks!!

Holy offense Batman!

Go Bucks!!!

Braxton looks very composed and matured. You can tell the game has slowed down for him. 

How Firm Thy Friendship....

Fugelere's picture

No mercy....I love it!

UFest57's picture

Dynamite Wilson

Also didn't realize Devin Smith changed his Number

Also also love going for two

This already looks like a completely different team..I effin love it!!! Run that damn score up and lets have our way with em!! Go Bucks!!!!

Sick block by Philly!

HighBallAce's picture

I think I would rather see Elliot out there than Hall. That or let Wilson have a few more touches. 

HighBallAce's picture

Guess I'll take that back....lol

cplunk's picture

Really? Urban says Hall is the best RB on the team. He's averaging 12 yards a carry and has a TD. 

HighBallAce's picture

I took it back!....lol But at the time I was thinking I would have liked to have seen more speed at the time. That was before he had that touchdown run though.

macbraddy's picture

What a block!!

Go Bucks!!!

HighBallAce's picture

I did NOT agree with that call. If they were going to go for it like that, they should have took the time to line up and run a decent play. They haven't had to trick the defense the entire game thus far. That was just a bad play call. Imho

Baroclinicity's picture

Lesson number 1 for the frosh.

Say it ain't so Dontre!

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

KBonay's picture

Bossa acclimating well to Ohio. Already sporting 'farmer-tan'. 

HighBallAce's picture

Ewww that secondary is little bit painful

Buckeye Chuck's picture

That wasn't on the secondary. Looked like a linebacker not covering the tight end.

Alright OSU. Lets get it back.

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

Buckeye Chuck's picture

If Braxton is going to have the worst play of his career, it might as well be against Buffalo.

Yeah. That sucked

Fugelere's picture

Penalties and turnovers... SMH

Buckeyejason's picture

Great first quarter. UGLY 2nd quarter!

BUCKEYES BABY!

BSTP DeCon's picture

Well shit. Time I stop focusing on Dontre

BuckeyePride's picture

Just had a nice return. Keep the focus. 

How Firm Thy Friendship....

andretolstoy's picture

Damn you Fickel!! :D

cinserious's picture

Now I can't wait to see Cameron Johnston make his debut punt.

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

WezBuck28's picture

I would e perfectly fine if he doesn't step foot on the field today..

Way to go HALL !

Buckeyejason's picture

Hall redeeming himself today..good to see. Everyone seems to have written him off. I've always liked his game.

BUCKEYES BABY!

CRAFTFORTHESTEAL's picture

Just sloppy, Wilson hopefully is making his mistakes now and not later on. Was hoping for a shut out! Defense was doing really well until last drive by Buffalo

Pay It Forward!

buckeyedude's picture

Freshman are going to make mistakes. At least Dontre redeemed himself.
Armani Reeves is having a hard time today.
I knew there wasn't going to be any shutouts. Not with such a young defense. I just hope the OSU D can get it together.
Oh SHIT! Now Shazier going off the field!
 

 
 

andretolstoy's picture

Hey - is there a place I can watch this game online?

cinserious's picture

What happened to Shazier?
 

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

Buckeyejason's picture

FUCK THERE GOES SHAZIER ON THE CART!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

BuckeyePride's picture

Shazier??

How Firm Thy Friendship....

buckeyedude's picture

Shazier - cramping.
UD: hopefully that's all.

Thank god it's just cramps.

The Buckeye Nation took a big breath on that 'cramping' news!!!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

BuckeyePride's picture

A lot of sigh of reliefs for sure 

How Firm Thy Friendship....

buckeyedude's picture

They need to double team that Mack dude. Taylor Decker can't handle him.

 
 

HighBallAce's picture

The offensive line shoud be doing a better job than this

dubjayfootball90's picture

good thing he had closing speed on that last pass play, he was beat

dubjayfootball90's picture

also, Khalil Mack is a freaking beast

dubjayfootball90's picture

Bosa with a good stick!!

cinserious's picture

How many pushups is that for Reeves? Coombs is probably in his grill now and Armani is hoping for a quick strike ofeensive drive so he can get away from the bench lol.

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

Buckeyejason's picture

Devin brown!?!!!? DAMNIT BETH!!!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Fugelere's picture

Lol beat me to it.

HighBallAce's picture

They should fire her and put her out of our misery! Joey at least know's what he's talking about. Even though there's just something not right with his voice or something. 

Oakland Buckeye's picture

Bettering Braxton Oliver

Fugelere's picture

Devin Brown? Really Beth? Really?

JLBNYC's picture

Did she call Braxton Miller -- "Braxton Oliver" towards the end of the half?!
 

RedStorm45's picture

Would have thought a Corey Smith would have been dropped.

Hayesedandconfused's picture

We need to get brown off of punt return 3 bobbles in the first half inexcusable. 

BuckeyeVet's picture

We look young, green, and mistake-prone.

HighBallAce's picture

I wanna see Mike Mitchell get a few reps. But yeah, they looked really good in the first quarter but after that, not so good. It's the first game and luckily we have 4 preseason games to get it together. 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

The team definitely had a long sloppy stretch beginning with the failure to convert the fourth down. 

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

cinserious's picture

Beth Mowin's voice sucks!

"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"

Crimson's picture

I'm so glad that Beth brought up how we are playing our new DOLLAR coverage on third and long.  Is that where we put in 10 DBs and either a DL or Shazier?
 

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

On a side note - thank god for technology and free enterprise!!! I had to purchase a VPN package that would tunnel me into a U.S. server so I could mask the fact that I'm living in Canada.  I can now watch the game on my TV via ESPN Watch... it has been pretty awesome so far!!!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

HighBallAce's picture

Well all in all, we look better than Texas A&M.....lol
 

FUqUespin's picture

We will be overtaken by Oregon, Stanford or GA/ Clemson winner and won't be back at #2 the rest of the year unless all of them have a loss because of this game.  Wisconsin will run over OSU, let alone Alabama.  Weak.

FUqU, e!spin!!

thekornidentity's picture

I wouldn't call it a great first half by Braxton but his passing efficiency was 178.04.

JORDAN HALL BETH!!! WAKE THE F UP!!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

HighBallAce's picture

Geez that right tackle spot is going to kill us if we don't get that fixed!

buckeyedude's picture

Reeves aint gettin it done.
 

 
 

Buckeyejason's picture

Defense looks as shitty as last years.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Brandon26841's picture

Without a doubt. No QB pressure and soft coverage / bad tackling. Not looking good at all.

House804's picture

Dear God....we need Roby.  Reeves is STRUGGLING.

We talkin' bout practice?!  Not the game I love...the game I die for.  Practice?!

Buckeyejason's picture

Guys dropping like flies today.

BUCKEYES BABY!

buckeyedude's picture

Reeves burned again. Pull him, for Pete's sake.

 
 

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

FUCK Reeves - get your head out of your ass

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

Buckeyejason's picture

GET REEVES OUT OF THERE!!!
Put Eli Apple in please!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Not looking like a #2 team today. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

dubjayfootball90's picture

Well, Buffalo is not giving up. We better not let off the gas. Giving 20 points to Buffalo, albeit 13 off turnovers, is unacceptable. I know it is still earlier and we have raw talent right now and it should get developed, and I am not crying that the sky is falling, just saying. Nonetheless, still excited as all hell!!!!!

BSTP DeCon's picture

Apparently Reeves isn't as ready as I thought he was. 

BuckeyeVet's picture

They have GOT to give Decker some help double teaming Mack!

Braxton needs to get on his horse this series and run the ball!  Put in Rod Smith and start pounding these guys a bit!!!  Our linebackers are falling like flies and we need to make theirs feel the pain as well

Buckeyejason's picture

Rod smith is suspended

BUCKEYES BABY!

buckeyeguy0615's picture

Reeves has looked very much less than impressive. THIS IS BUFFALO! We don't look like a #2 team.

BuckeyeVet's picture

Going to have to grow a lot as a team (entirely possible over the course of a season) if we are going to keep that #2 ranking.

Buffalo, EFFING BUFFALO, exploiting Reeves. Worst performance on D. Taylor Decker 2nd worst.

 
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

ugh, and now a penalty. Come now, Men!

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

I'm guessing we drop to 6 or 7 after this performance

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

btalbert25's picture

We are not the number 2 team in America folks

House804's picture

Because we have no where close to a #2 defense.  Looks slow and out of position...again.

We talkin' bout practice?!  Not the game I love...the game I die for.  Practice?!

btalbert25's picture

The offense hasn't exactly been anything to get terribly excited about either.  They've made some plays, but most of them were early on. 
 

btalbert25's picture

Where would we be without Jordan Hall today? 
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

people are dead at the stadium, ten point game and its quiet, now Miller is cramping

HighBallAce's picture

Braxton hasn't exactly had very good protection in this game either!  He did in the first quarter but that's about it. Other than that he's been running for his life.

buckeyedude's picture

Wow. now penalty. OSU sure ain't looking like #2 team in the country right now. I think the heat may be getting to them. But Buffalo is playing in the same heat.
We need El Guapo, Roby, Shazier, and double team that Buffalo LB, Mack.
Here comes KENNY G!
 

 
 

Fugelere's picture

Oh boy...please just be a cramp

Buckeyejason's picture

IS THIS REAL LIFE!?!! 
Feels just like last year.

BUCKEYES BABY!

andretolstoy's picture

We're kind of flat.

dubjayfootball90's picture

This is so f*cking sad right now

This officially sucks...

I get it. I don't have these cosmic expectations right off the bat like some. But I just see lack of energy

btalbert25's picture

I thought this O-Line was supposed to be good
 

dubjayfootball90's picture

Hall is saving us... reall, he is.

There shouldn't be no saving though ......

Also, Mack is pretty damn good, he is going to do some good things this year, for sure

Dude. Let Kenny play

Buckeyejason's picture

This has to be a joke. Why are we the only team cramping!?!?

BUCKEYES BABY!

HighBallAce's picture

Come on....seriously!!! They got all these guys from the south and the heat here is NOTHING like it is down there. They should be used to this heat! What good was it to recruit these guys if we aren't going to use them?? Galloway has a point with what he's saying about the cramping!

Cavluv23's picture

Sooooooo what's the thought on Tyler decker ??? Is this how it's going to be ???

World travel is my passion spreading the word and grace of Ohio in every corner of the world . 

buckeyedude's picture

Jordan Hall is playing OK, but would like to see some other RBs get some carries.

 
 

btalbert25's picture

OK?????? He's had 2 long runs for TD's and has more than 150 rushing. 

buckeyedude's picture

I still think El Guapo and Smith both are better than Hall.

 
 

cplunk's picture

Meyer doesn't 

andretolstoy's picture

It's Fickell's fault they're cramping

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Can we at least attempt a pass sometime since early 2nd half?

Missed part of game.  Have any other running backs played much?  how'd they look?
 

Buckeyejason's picture

Nope. Hall has pretty much every carry except for one by Ball.

BUCKEYES BABY!

buckeyedude's picture

KENNY G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
 

Buckeyejason's picture

TD!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUCKEYES BABY!

andretolstoy's picture

Let Kenny finish the game. He's on the level. These other guys don't know how to control their emotions. They're spent already.

Let Kenny play some more while Braxton's hydrating, I say. Would like to see some Dunn and Elliot, and Ball in addition to J. Hall.

 
 

BSTP DeCon's picture

And no more Reeves

teddyballgame's picture

Kenny G calmly bailing us out of a shitty situation again
His captainship is definitely deserved

andretolstoy's picture

I think Tressel understood the concept of controlled rage. His teams just tended to get too emotionless. Urban's teams are the other end of the spectrum except they let loose too soon. Heck they even went for two points, twice?! (which I don't understand) You lose energy doing that after a while.
End result. Same result :)

njclebuckeye5's picture

jordan hall is dominating but i wanna see ball dunn and elliot

Lobs it to the endzone... Touchdown Devin Smith!!

Best 2nd string QB in the world!

Please no more lazy coverage by Reeves... Oh dear, please!

Buckifan4Life's picture

When did Walrus come back to call plays? They need to open it up more.

Reeves looks lost out there at CB and Braxton seems to be uncomfortable in the pocket.

Not what I expected today, but it's just the first game. :)

Go Bucks!

Mannnnnnnn it better just the first game !! Cause I'm thinking what you just wrote

Spence and Washington have been as non existent as Clowney was Thursday.

BUCKEYES BABY!

CRAFTFORTHESTEAL's picture

This looks like the Cal game last year, we can't stop them now. Keep grinding out the first downs. We haven't given them a loss of yardage this half.

Pay It Forward!

HighBallAce's picture

Ok that was pathetic..

buckeyedude's picture

Is it just me or does this year's OSU defense really miss Hankins in the middle and Simon on the end?

that helmet rule, i know its a great safety rule, but, ugh.....

You can't spell chump without UM's picture

Dumbest rule ever

That rule is pathetic

This D better not hope we face a Clemson or an Oregon.

That helmet rule is ridiculous. 15 yards really

buckeyedude's picture

Hate to be a downer, but this is not a top 10 defense right now. Not even close.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Could be worse....Texas A&M is only up by 7

They aren't the number 2 team in the country. They are also playing their freshman backup QB.

It could be much worse.

I wouldn't be surprised....

buckeyedude's picture

How could anyone even deny it? So much for Urban's wanting a "clean game."
I know the heat played a part, but Buffalo had to play in the same conditions, and didn't look like a ''cellar dweller" in the MAC.
I think Buffalo will be competing for a MAC championship. But who gives a shit?

 
 

jkrk's picture

If the voters remember that Roby, Smith, and Hyde were out and they know that Shazier missed half the game I don't think we drop too far.

BuckeyePride's picture

Guys, this is the 1st game of the season. We are very young on D and need to get some experience. Meyer even said their D will give us some fits on how they line up. The sky is not falling. Take a deep breath and let's not worry about Oregon or Clemson right now.  Geesh

Wow. The B1G ain't going to get any respect at this rate.

yea, that one surprised me, i expected it to be more competitive. Guess I expected too much. Sucks for Hazell, though.

Tough.

Going to need a better effort vs SDST, cannot be making the mistakes we've seen today.

As the defense just lucked out.

Have you all forgotten that almost every year tOSU plays an inferior team and struggle against them. Remember Cal last year? Remember when they played Marshall and Nugent had to kick a 55 yard field goal to win it? This is nothing new to me. I'm just happy that football's back.

Some observations:

1) Beth Mowins is living proof that ESPN hates the Buckeyes. Her voice is terrible, and she's a lousy play-by-play announcer.
2) The Buckeyes need to be on FM in larger Ohio markets. AM reception is spotty, and the sound quality is less than acceptable for the 21st century.
3) This live feed doesn't work well on an iPad.

Not a great game but expected somewhat for 1st game.. D is young and will need to grow up fast.  Braxton is Braxton... still don't see whole lot of difference than last year.  Receivers seem much improved.  Freshmen will need experience...
we aren't a #2 ... but then again, we don't have to worry about ranking.. just win every game, I think we will be in the championship game... but we won't win every game if we don't get better on the D

Buckeye06's picture

You guys expect perfection but don't blame the O for 2 of the touchdowns given up?  Buffalo has done some nice things, but one of the TDs was a pick 6 and 1 was extended by a dumb call against Grant (I guess it's correct but kind of unlucky)

I miss the days when inferior opponents would score less than 15 points a game... ;(

D is slow... i just don't see speed there...

Buckeye06's picture

You guys are just looking to complain about the D when the O has been the problem for the most part. 

dubjayfootball90's picture

Two things that really piss me off. Personal fouls out of bounds, and block in the backs on KO/KOR and punts. Unbelievable

topgun67's picture

Man... this D needs some SPEED.... I think we had 1 sack?  or 2 sack?  when you watch the teams like Alabama or LSU... it's amazing the way the D plays... speed, aggressiveness, etc.  I guess it might take some time to develop our kids to play like that...

Buckeye06's picture

You guys are complaining about a D who has given up 263 yards for the game so far...and 13 points

Oldschoolbuck's picture

I love all you guys, but honestly folks, we are the biggest bunch of neurotic people outside the asylum.
The D, for a good part of the first half was ALL NEW!
Yeah they look tentative at times, let's see the improvement from 1st week to 2nd and, really, over the next 3-4 games as new guys (who we were pretty much all hyped on when they signed) get up to speed.
Or we could just fire Urban and Fickell and Vrabel...!!

Is it just me, or is the livechat almost impossible to deal with given the heavy trolling today?

I think if the guest function could somehow be deactivated, it would help alleviate that.  Link it to your 11W account

collisionbend's picture

I was trying to watch the game on ESPN, listen to Paul Keels on the radio, and kep up with the live chat on the iPad. Between the trolls and the usability issues with the live chat on the iPad, I gave up and just watched the game.
If it weren't for Paul Keels, Beth Whatshername would have put me straight into the looney bin. I'm grateful the game was on Sirius this week... Next week? Unknown...

the play at the end of this game is just kind of disappointing

Both sides of the ball need work. Good thing we have another week to help fix things.

Can't our receivers get open? Maybe the Bulls have outstanding corners, but I doubt it. Puzzling game today.

Go Bucks!

topgun67's picture

new punter, with all the hype, hasn't done much.. what was the last kick?  I could have done that... his avg for the day is much less than 40 yards... I guess he too needs more playing time.
overall, we have a long way to go.... SD state is much better than Buffalo so we better get a lot better in 1 week....
well, I am not convinced of being elite - just based on our play today... quite disappointed actually...
see you all next week

It's called, not out kicking the coverage. The St's were fantastic today, - the roughing the kicker call. The kid put the ball exactly where it needed to be. He looked fantastic. Good NFL punters only average around 45 yards a kick.

Doc's picture

The good news is we are now 13-0.  Live to play another day

"Say my name."

dubjayfootball90's picture

Always room to improve, D could have played better, two drives Buffalo just took the ball down at will. But need more play out of the inside  dlineman, clogging up holes better. Saw a little too much of them getting moved around to open holes. 
 
Not a bad day, but still can do a whole lot better, still early in the season and still early in man peoples' careers on our team. Everything will be ok, at least for another week

ScarletNGrey01's picture

A lot of young players, rebuilding the D, too much hype and the usual buckeye homer unrealistic expectations (including yours truly).  Now the coaches can get the attention of the players, work on deficiencies, and have them come out next week a little more grounded, humble, angry and really to explode on offense and stifle on D.

The will to win is not as important as the will to prepare to win. -- Woody Hayes

buckeyedude's picture

One other thing we have to keep in mind is that Buffalo is a veteran team. They had a lot of upperclassmen on both sides of the ball. OSU was breaking in a rookie starting D-line and it showed.
Reeves got burned all day by Buffalo, a mid-level team in the MAC. I would look at other options if I were Meyer, but I'm not.

 
 

andretolstoy's picture

I'd like to see a little less pre-season hype. I don't like all the talk. I'd also like to see a little more control of emotions from the entire Coaching staff. Football is about going all out, every play, until the whistle blows - but also being sane about it.
I don't understand going for two points. Why give these guys more ammunition? If the aim was to try to blow them out and look tough in on the TV. It didn't work. We blew them out in the first quarter - then it looked like we had vegemite in our jocks.
We won. Be content. Now go do some house work or be a big brother, or go to Church or something.
Oh yea. I forgot. Everything that went bad today. It's Fickell's fault.

muahaaahaa.. Woody said that right?! I guess it's sound football then? Because God knows, Woody always made the right choices.

D-Day0043's picture

The defense did better than I thought. After the first quarter the offense was predictable and boring. The down field passing opened up the running lanes. After the turnovers the offense went into conservative mode.

Oakland Buckeye's picture

Did I miss Dunn today?

D-Day0043's picture

I was wondering the same thing. I didn't see him.

jkrk's picture

What was up with Philly's hands today? I've never seen anything like that from him. 

CharlieBuckeye's picture

So the defense is young. We knew that going in. So Decker is getting his 1st start and is young. We knew that. We all wanted a blow out of ginormous proportions.. We did not get that. Decker got burned and will learn from that. Warriner will correct it. Reeves will get coached up and will learn fro his 1st start.
Everyone just chill out and imbibe your favorite alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage.  Ramp up for next week and let the chips fall where they may.

Prolly the most level-headed response I've seen all day. They're young. They're inexperienced. They're extremely talented. They're incredibly well-coached. They have incredible potential.
But what has Urbz been saying since Day One? Distractions can - and will - derail this team if they are not careful. At times today, it looked like they were not being careful, resulting in an ugly win. Decisive win, yes, but ugly nonetheless.
All that good stuff in paragraph 1 of this post still applies. The potential is still there. The train has not derailed; The Chase is not over. They need work. 
But they can still do it all. They just have to learn from their mistakes - which I'm sure Urbz will drill into their heads - and play one game a a time. Let's not get ahead of ourselves; it's a long season.
Go Bucks! (Michigan sucks!)
