Looks like it's up to Kenny G to win this one.

This just means we get to continue the #KennyGforHeisman campaign.

TBDBITL is killing it at halftime, per usual.

BME_Buckeye's picture

Did they really do the same performance as week 1? 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I always get so much more nervous when I'm watching on TV rather than being at the game. GO BUCKS

Paul Keels reporting more scarlet than Cal.  Did the band practice any jazz?

Idaho Helga's picture

Geeze, I guess I'll have to miss a bit of that exciting ND Purdue matchup to watch this.  Can't believe that is a prime time game.  Because they think Purdue has a chance?

Holy Buckeye! Could be an incredible game!

Lets GOOOOOO!!!

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

I don't know, we might be in trouble having to start Guiton....wait  what?

I don't know about you, but I was ok with that result  ;)

It's 7:12 P.M. and Michigan still sucks

Idaho Helga's picture

Exactly.  In fact, just ask their fan base today!  Or anybody with functional eyeballs!

Idaho Helga's picture

Guiton has  frickin' arm.

UrbanCulture's picture

So important to get off to a quick start! Another stop now lets go

BME_Buckeye's picture

DAMN SON DAMN! Going for the knock out blow....

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

You could not ask for a better start.

ALL NIGHT, LET'S GO!!!!!

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

hit_the_couch's picture

I'm almost certain that Kenny G deserves the starting job the rest of the year.

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

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Kenny is tearin it up!  Wow!!

BME_Buckeye's picture

DAMN SHazier
Man our defense looks amazing! Lets go for the throat right here, right now. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Guiton already has as many TD passes as Devin Gardner had interceptions today

Urban looks like he's gonna make a statement today...

Go Sweet Kenny G!

No worries. Next time out D....move on.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Okay, shake it off.  Let's go O!!!

Hovenaut's picture

Damn. Have to maintain composure here.

Let's get it back D.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

OSU069's picture

Does everyone still think that Guiton should start over Miller? Guiton obviously had an amazing start to this game but Miller was a top 10 player in CFB last year. It's absolutely ridiculous for anyone to say he should be the starter for the rest of the year.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Way to stay at home secondary!  Great Pick!!

Hovenaut's picture

And right on cue Christian Bryant.

Try this again.....let's go Kenny G.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

Fugelere's picture

The umpire seems kinda confused

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

I think he was drunk!

It was a free play and the QB knew it.

That touchdown play was amazing. I gotta tip my cap to Cal on that one. Sigh. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

Baroclinicity's picture

I always get nervous when I see all d linemen get a free pass into the backfield.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Baroclinicity's picture

Sloppy on d.

BSTP DeCon's picture

Think Guiton will have 200 passing yards by then end of the first quarter?? Seems really possible!

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

How about that Blimp view!  There are more Buckeyes in the stands than Cal supporters.  Looks like the Buckeyes have taken over the stadium!

Hovenaut's picture

The mental mistakes are torture.

I don't understand it.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

Soft coverages are also painful on the short passes...

"Because I couldn't go for three."  - Woody Hayes

You can't spell chump without UM's picture

The defense may give up some points & yards because Cal even though they can't play defense, can play offense. 

Brady Hoke ate my comment

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

C'mon D-Line!! Sack him!!!

D-Day0043's picture

Momentum has shifted in Cal's favor.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Yes, it has.  We need a drive to get the momentum back. 

BSTP DeCon's picture

I think we will get another drive going. Cal defense is way too easy to not cut through!

D-Day0043's picture

If Cal was smart, they would just throw screen pass after screen pass.

Oh no, Shazier is down!  This is really bad. 

Buckifan4Life's picture

We can not afford to loose him...

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

Can these announcers cheer for Cal a little harder? I mean, it's not obvious who they want to win.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Buckifan4Life's picture

They always want the upset. I know what you mean.

Jnowie's picture

Gotta get better at tackling and play smarter.....penalties are killing us.

jNowie

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Wow!  Lucky there on 3rd down! 

luckynutz's picture

Mental lapses all over the place. Ugh...

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Okay, good job to hold them to a FG. 

Hovenaut's picture

Disappointed in the defense, the mental mistakes are inexcusable.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Yeah, we're not quite there yet on D.  The D is young though.  Lots of talent.  They are growing though.  This is a good challenge for them. 

Buckifan4Life's picture

"Come on, what day is it Julie? Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike,...I know you can hear me..."

LOL! I love that commercial.

Max Power's picture

Those long balls are where we really miss Braxton

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Shazier is back in.  Thank goodness!

teddyballgame's picture

Good to see Shazier back

Are the announcers going to give Goff a blowjob at halftime?!?!  Jesus they're making me ill

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

C'mon D we need a stop!!

kr66osu's picture

could be 31-28, so at least we got those 2 stops

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

Could also be 49-20.

lamplighter's picture

starting to get a bit nervous here.  I hate shoot outs

popeurban's picture

I know, Goff has looked impressive.  ESP for a true fresh.

popeurban's picture

Thank goodness for kenny G.  Let's hope that the D comes out and plays inspired.

D-Day0043's picture

We need to make a statement with this first drive of the second half. This offense has the speed, but we need a bruiser on the inside. Smith needs to step it up. Where the heck is Dunn? 

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Last I heard Dunn wasn't playing because he wasn't into playing special teams. 

D-Day0043's picture

Wow. I foresee a transfer in his future.

He and Warren Ball perhaps.

D-Day0043's picture

This game has a Tressel-esque feeling to it. Get a big lead and hold on for dear life....

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

ScarletNGrey01's picture

Except the half time score is pretty much what Coach Tress (love the guy) averaged for a game LOL.  The bucks are doing pretty well considering our starting QB and starting RB is not playing.  We're used to lock down defense and an opportunistic, conservative offense, there is a new era at tOSU.  Would like to see the bucks play 4 strong quarters for one game this season, we'll see what the second half brings.

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

D-Day0043's picture

On the road missing three key starters, we couldn't ask for any better.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

ScarletNGrey01's picture

The missed offensive interference call on the deep Guiton pass, the stupid out of bounds late hit, and not getting the first down on 3rd and 1 has this game closer than it should be.  Exciting game though, I predicted (didn't take a Nostradamus) this would be a shoot out.  The Cal kid looks legit, going against an excellent backup QB.

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

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Yep, lots of mistakes, especially by the young D.  Will be interesting to see how we handle this 11 point lead.  Can't let up, got to keep the pedal down and keep driving!

pjtobin's picture

Halftime. These announcers suck. Why do they act like they love cal. No credit being given to our Buckeyes for kicking Cal's ass in the first half. 

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

ScarletNGrey01's picture

Everyone loves the underdog I guess.  Guiton should be the big story, but Goff seems to be the focus of attention.

Seriously - I can't believe they just glossed over the 4 - 1 option play Kenny G ran... holy shit that was incredible... no replay, no mention of it what so ever... yeesh

popeurban's picture

Replays in general have been lacking.  IMHO 

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Yeah, these announcers are definitely biased.  They went right to talking about how Goff can lead them back on offense. 

popeurban's picture

First ESPN is biased now Fox?  I think they have been very complimentary.  JMO

Oakland Buckeye's picture

Totes agree... Love gus, don't see the bias here

Buckifan4Life's picture

The media, as usual, is trying to MAKE news by suggesting a QB controversy at OSU.

The media doesn't keep us free anymore, they try to tell us what to think about.

Nice stop D! Time for a punt return TD!

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

D-Day0043's picture

Oh well. Time for another touchdown for the offense then.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Okay, we've got a nice lead now.  Would love to see some Woody/Tressel ball!  3 yards and a cloud of dust!!  Although if Hall can get 7 to 8 yards a carry that would be fine too.  lol.

Alright!  first down!!

popeurban's picture

I love the confidence to go for it.  That kills a D

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

I may have a heart attack by the end of the year.  Especially when we get into closer games!

BSTP DeCon's picture

Come on, Guiton, make those reads. He's had either an open RB or WR on the outside and he's chosen to attempt the more guarded throw up the middle on a t least 3 instances so far...

D-Day0043's picture

This has been Herman's best called game to date.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

popeurban's picture

Agreed.  A part of me wonders if guiton allows him to call a more wide open game?

D-Day0043's picture

My thoughts exactly! I don't think Miller is smart enough and doesn't make quick decisions.

I am D-Day0043 and I approve this message.

popeurban's picture

Not sure about that, but I feel like Guiton just has better touch on his throws.  Either way, two good QBs is a great problem to have.

Again, I wonder if Guiton's skillset allows for this more than miller does?

It's hard for me to tell how much better Xbrax is compared to Kenny G. I know Braxton is a stud. And is a better rusher. But Kenny is very impressive.

Is Doran Grant that bad in coverage that he must play 12 yards off the ball on every snap? Would love to see him come get in a WRs face to cut down some of those quick pop throws.

Thank God for the Holding penalty.

This game has all the writings on it to go like the Indiana game last year. Shut they ass down! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

This is flat out unacceptable silver bullet defense tackling.

Braxton is a running QB that throw.
Guiton is a throwing QB that can run.

Stop it. Braxton is definitely better. I like Kenny but lets see how he would do against a really good defense

I'm sorry but aren't not ahead in this game by a shit load?  With all the whining on this thread I'd swear we were getting our ass kicked

Because the defense can't stop Cal, a second tier team with a freshman QB.

Exactly, this D has to grow up in a hurry if we expect this team to be able to challenge for a NC.  I think most of us can see the talent is there, but a lot of mistakes are happening as well.  If we were playing a higher quality team it would be a different ball game. 

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

They have 27 points - we have 52... we've stopped them enough for fuck sake!  Expecting a shutout every single game is a fantasy.  Coming into this game the Bears were the number 1 passing offense

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Yeah, against Portland State!

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

Someone seriously downvoted me because I pointed out that yes, CAL did have the #1 passing offense, but part of the reason was because they played Portland State in one of their two games so far.  Wow.

If there is any coach on that sideline that thinks that is acceptable, or satisfied, then they shouldn't be coaching.

You guys are pathetic... seriously, you're an embarrassment to the Buckeye Nation... we're kicking their ass and you're doing nothing but whining.  Is there room for improvement - absolutely... but you on here pissing and moaning is fucking pathetic

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

I think most people are just cheering for the team to do a good job.  Seems to me like you are the one pissing and moaning right now.  If you look down a bit further I was just praising the D for a good stop in 4th down a few minutes ago.  C'mon, can't we just get along as Buckeye Brothers!  We all want the same thing.  A great team, right?

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Sorry - my Buckeye brothers aren't on here ragging on the team that is 25 points ahead and dominating this team

The only one pissing and moaning is you. As for the rest of us... It's called passion.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

No - I'm here appreciating a great effort by this team, not tearing them down because they're giving up a few plays here and there... what you have is not even remotely close to passion

You have obviously never coached or played. You always look for your flaws so you can improve.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Wrong again!  I played and my father was a coach so I've been around football and involved with football all my life!  You are not a coach - you are a fan!  Your job is to root for your team through good and bad - not to sit here and tear the team down when things are not going as you feel they should!

Hovenaut's picture

Guess it's time for some perspective.

It's a win.

No one has gotten hurt (or compounded an existing injury).

Still plenty of time to work out some issues.

I'm disappointed at some things, but am looking at the bigger picture.

O-H!

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

CentralFloridaBuckeye's picture

I fully agree Hovenaut!  Nice win.  Lots to improve on.  Love the Bucks!! Can't wait to see them in the Shoe next week!!
I - O!!!!

And no one said a thing about a shut out.

The yards after catch, the missed open field tackles, the penalties...

Leaving plenty to be desired.

Against a better, balanced team those issues add up to a loss.

Gotta hand it to Goff, he's a gunslinger and is going to give the rest of the PAC fits.

The offense has obviously played very well but overall this game just makes me feel icky.

I thought Rod Smith would finish things off.

Another great game by Jordan Hall.

And I hear some things about some kid named Hyde coming back.

And Dontre Wilson really is fast.

It took a last minute touchdown to barely beat Cal at home last year and we still went 12-0. I know it wasn't perfect, but going to the west coast and winning by 18 is a big improvement. Lots to work on, but lots to feel good about also.

Our Honor Defend!

ScarletNGrey01's picture

This kind of reminds me of the game against Nebraska last year.  This was an exciting offensive shoot out.  To beat a Pac12 team with a hurry up offense like Cal's and a kid that is a heck of a gunslinger WITHOUT OUR STARTING QB AND OUR STARTING RB is pretty impressive IMHO.  This may be the best passing team we face during the regular season (a good tuneup for Indiana) and the defense will get better.  When you have two high flying offenses with 80+ plays each, this is the kind of score you end up with.  Our defense will be better.  Hey ... we didn't barely squeak by Akron at home ... we beat a pretty decent team.

A few sentences from the ESPN wrap up:

Guiton connected with Devin Smith on a 90-yard pass on Ohio State's second offensive play for the longest play from scrimmage in school history.
With both teams running no-huddle offenses for much of the game, the defenses were scrambling as the teams combined for 86 points, 11 touchdowns and 1,111 total yards on 177 plays.
Brendan Bigelow, who rushed for 160 yards and two touchdowns on four carries last year against Ohio State, was held to 39 yards on 11 carries in the rematch.

I know there are some things that they need to do better. I also know UFM will get this team where he wants them by the time we play SCum. I think after what I witnessed tonight that we should be in the top ten, no questions asked.
