I like how Mark May has a front page ESPN article on how Clemson and Maryland don't get enough respect.   FSU 63-0 over Maryland.    Lord, I hope he picked Northwestern for today.

As of SportsCenter last night, he apparently picked OSU...

Damn that drive by them gophers. Nice.

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

I really hate those Skunk Kitties... Go Gophers, nice drive!

TTUN: #1 in the Nation in giving Turrible, Turrible teams hope!

Haha, ttun has not passed yet...

Idaho Helga's picture

@Deadly...this is apparently how you stop the interception problem.  Woody would approve this.

GoBucks10's picture

Here's to hoping this continues for the rest of the season.  Think how easy it would be to stop them.  Sucks it won't stay this way though.  ttun would have to pass eventually...

ZERO passes in Q1 from TTUN.  Wow. Just. Wow.

Idaho Helga's picture

In other news, those of you hoping to score a ticket in November at the Big House, your ticket price is dropping as we speak...

GoBucks10's picture

That was a well placed punt.

Rutgers and SMU are in 2OT in front of approximately 8 people.

Just say no to italics abuse.

KBonay's picture

Kinda hoping Michigan has the home-win streak intact so we can take that too. 

Earle's picture

Revamped Michigan O line looks much-improved.

Just say no to italics abuse.

I could have done without the disgusting high definition shot of the moles on Brady's Hoke's fat grotesque neck.

Was there dried cheese whiz on them?

OMG.
I just thought they were sprinkles.

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

I was grossed out by that too. HD is not for everything.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

oregonianbuckeye's picture

Gardner doesn't have a turnover yet? And it's halftime. Weird.

geoffrsc's picture

OU beats Akron by 40. So, by the transitive property of football, they would beat TTUN by about 5 TDs.

Buckeye1996's picture

Has the heavy rain passed? Anyone near or at the stadium to give a full report?

Buckeye1996's picture

I saw that Tenn TD play. Punter got his punt block and then knocked on his arse by a vicious block. lol.

Buckeye1996's picture

Punter got a concussion on that block. Boy he took one right in the kisser.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

I'm still laughing about that block - you could see it coming and BOOM - out goes the lights!!!

1. Hope the weather improves in Evanston or this game is getting delayed. 2. TTUN still sucks. Not saying that just to be saying that, but I'm watching a totally green, frosh QB from Minnesota light them up at times.  They won't have a win in November, check their schedule.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Looking at their schedule and I see 3 wins and 2 losses. The Big Ten is tuuurrrrrrble, man.

rdubs's picture

Aaron Murray has SEC speed.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Georgia/Tennessee about to get exciting.
Fuck TTUN.  That is all.

Class of 2010.

KBonay's picture

Sounds like weather might be clearing a bit...
 

rdubs's picture

yep doesn't look like it should be raining for much if any of the game, but it will be a soggy field.

KBonay's picture

Well Georgia is certainly making the Ducks look real good. 

buckguyfan1's picture

Hoke sounds drunk.... 

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

What a freaking call by Tennessee on 4th an 1. 

Class of 2010.

Blue Eyed Buckeye's picture

Biggest game until THE GAME.  Go Bucs!!!

Knarcisi's picture

Bucks!  This ain't Pittsburgh, pal. 

Knarcisi's picture

UGA Tenn is the last game I expected to be close right now. 

KBonay's picture

GARY DANIELSON all but building a case for Georgia in case they drop this game. Smh. 
 

Buckeye1996's picture

Gary drives me nuts.

Knarcisi's picture

So if Georgia wins will they drop for a close game against a bad Tenn team?

UrbanCulture's picture

well, tennessee will probably get bumped up to the top 25 for playing georgia close, so georgia will have a win vs a top 25!

KBonay's picture

As if there is a logic for ranking SEC teams...

BSTP DeCon's picture

No, because they will consider Tenn a tough SEC team with a hard-noosed defense. Georgia will switch spots with Stanford because Georgia went on the road to win.

KBonay's picture

What a gutsy play call

KBonay's picture

Tenn- run the clock & kick fg. 

rdubs's picture

Yep, I'd be tempted just to take 3 knees.

UrbanCulture's picture

Tennesee looking good. Gotta run the clock here. Keep the ball out of Murray's hands.
 
That SEC commercial is PISSING ME OFF.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Does Butch Jones think he's Urban Meyer with these 4th down plays!?!?

Class of 2010.

KBonay's picture

Brilliant calls too. Sometimes I think our hurry-up 4th snap hurts more than helps. Get a play called. 

KBonay's picture

Oh man.  Lots of time. 

KBonay's picture

Flags giving game back to UGA. 

rdubs's picture

I don't think any of them were bad calls, but Georgia also got away with a hold.

GoBucks10's picture

I do believe that's a fumble...TN fans might go crazy...

rdubs's picture

Yep, they are going to be pissing and moaning about getting screwed by the refs (at home).

GoBucks10's picture

SEC complaining on this will be epic, I'm sure.  Kid just flat lost it.

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

KBonay's picture

That was craptastic

GoBucks10's picture

ha...Butch Jones remembered to ice the kicker before the snap like he messed up when he was coaching UC against Louisville.

GoBucks10's picture

Is the celebration for beating the UNRANKED team really necessary?

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

Buckeye1996's picture

Tennessee...wow....what a tough one to lose.

GABuckeye's picture

It's going to be ridiculous when everyone comes out and says what a great win by Georgia with all the injuries and stuff they had.  Yet Ohio State gets zero credit for playing 3 games without Braxton, etc.

GoBucks10's picture

Anybody have any ideas on how much scarlet will be painted across the stands tonight??
 

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

KBonay's picture

Arkansas or Florida. Can't see myself wanting either to win..

M Man's picture

lol.  That photo of the Gophers grasping the Little Brown Jug dates back to the Ron Mason era.  Maroney and Barber both had career games.
