Looks like an upset weekend. Glad we have a bye. 

Deadly Nuts's picture

Georgia and Oklahoma are out of the title chase at last. Next we need LSU to go down along with Oregon to finish off the weekend.
Edit: Baylor going down would be nice too.

LEBRON

Those Wisconsin helmets are terrible.

LEBRON

I think they look great!

DaiTheFlu's picture

Meant to up vote you, sorry!

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

BuckeyeVet's picture

Sweet weekend so far - OU & UGA have lost - so they won't be creeping up the standings. Arkansas & Bulemia get curb stomped. Now - come on Wildcats & Huskies!

Oregon on 4th. Stopped!

KSU tied with Baylor 7-7

LEBRON

Probably wouldn't be a bad thing for V.Tech to keep winning (as they did today) since we suddenly have an interest in them being respectable over the next couple of years...

KBonay's picture

Abbrediarias is out with head injury. 

Hovenaut's picture

Clemson looking turrible so far.

Damn. This Oregon game about inches. 3 reviewed plays in a row. 

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Dabo upset that some people still wonder when Clemson will start Clemsoning.

Hovenaut's picture

Lol....I've thoroughly enjoyed the Clemsoning shown so far, and hope it continues.

"Success...it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes

rdubs's picture

Wisconsin seems to have figured out in the first half what it took us 2.5 quarters to figure out.  Just blast NW over and over.  It's okay to throw some up top, but just keep pounding them and they can't stop you.

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Yeah, but I wonder if our blasting helped soften 'em up for Bucky. NW's OL and DL getting pounded so far.

buckeye4life050233's picture

Wisconsin has at least 1 lineman holding on every single play.....more often than not, the guy in position to make the play for the defense is being tackled or bear hugged by the wisconsin offensive lineman

AJW_16's picture

Ah yes, the "Barry Alvarez Way."

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you." 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

This game is really shining a light on our problems on pass defense. Northwestern cannot do a thing through the air today, and last week it was nothing but open receivers all day long.

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

nm_buck's picture

I don't know if that proves anything... we threw the ball on whisky pretty much at will.  68% for 200 yds... and in the second half we barely threw to work the clock.
 
Both of those teams had their way with our secondary... but it still wasn't enough to win.  One game at a time...

RedStorm45's picture

What the eff PAC-12 refs? You blew the play dead.  Just because the back might have gotten into the end zone after that doesn't mean it was a touchdown.

AJW_16's picture

Nice play by Washington there.

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you." 

buckeye4life050233's picture

that kickoff coverage looked like the buckeyes last year........completely out of the coverage lanes leading to easy 40/50 yd return

harleymanjax's picture

HUGE stop by BC!

"Because I couldn't go for 3"

Hovenaut's picture

And the review to uphold the call - excellent.

Goooooooo Huskies!!!

buckeye4life050233's picture

watching nw struggle just shows how inept our defensive schemes are......

nm_buck's picture

NW played the game of their season against us.  At home... GAMEDAY...
We beat them handily in spite of homefield advantage.  There wasn't any way NW was going into Camp Randall and be able to play as good as last week.  No way. 

AJW_16's picture

The Clemsoning is upon us.

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you." 

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Knock on wood . . . or Dabo's head, whichever is closer at hand. 

Idaho Helga's picture

Help me out here.  I'm late putting out my OSU flag this fall.  But I got another one for Christmas so now I have to choose between the two.
#1 flag: Ohio State logo in middle, Black large borders on each end with National Championship years on it.  I'd pick this one immediately except the way it hangs the logo is sideways.
#2 flag: Standard Block O with Buckeyes.  Classic look.  Meant to be hung short end up so not sideways like #1.

Pics would help

"Because I couldn't go for 3"

Idaho Helga's picture

mmmm.... I think I'll try that.    I haven't put a pic in here yet but I'll read the help info and give it a try.
 

nm_buck's picture

Those are two classic flags.
Get a 2nd pole and fly 'em both.

Deadly Nuts's picture

So... if Clemson wins by 7 or less do we jump them?

LEBRON

jkrk's picture

I believe we drop to #6 in that scenario. 

harleymanjax's picture

Clemson is in the South, we couldn't possibly be better than them!

"Because I couldn't go for 3"

I believe Clemson jumps us with a loss

Oregon. Clemson. Baylor. I'm not impressed.

Bad throw by Hackenburg there. Frosh mistake.

Quick, somebody give him the ball again...

Devin "I have a high completion rate if you  count in the defense" Gardner.

Deadly Nuts's picture

There is the Gardner interception....

LEBRON

BME_Buckeye's picture

Wow. Wide open....

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

 

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Washington needs a score before halftime. I don't think they can hang with Oregon if they have to become one-dimensional passing in the second half.

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

BC hanging with Clemson midway through the 3rd...Clemson just had a TD called back...7-3 BC.

Clemson came right back - 10-7.

Dang...every time I post, wrong team gets a TD..10-7 Clemson...signing off.

buckeye4life050233's picture

way to show up northwestern......this games makes osu look really bad

Ahh Saturday's picture

Yeah, I wonder how the Buckeyes will stack up against those Badgers. Wait, what? Oh, we already beat them? Well, I guess that makes us look pretty good.

Idaho Helga's picture

Help me out here.  I'm late putting out my OSU flag this fall.  But I got another one for Christmas so now I have to choose between the two.  Sorry, I had to shoot into the sun thus the purple glow.

harleymanjax's picture

The second one.......the first one should only be used with a flag pole

"Because I couldn't go for 3"

Idaho Helga's picture

I'm starting to warm up to that one.  It was the gift one.  I only wish the block O was white.  Thanks!

Deadly Nuts's picture

Why not both?

LEBRON

Idaho Helga's picture

If I did that it would block about 1/2 of my picture window. 

buckeyedude's picture

Yeah, but what a view, Helga!

The Block O definitely.

Wow...BC bombs away.

14-10.

Bwaaa haaa haaa!!!  I see Give it up Gardner is at it again!!!  Go PSU!!!

Fun Fact: ttun's back-up Shane Morris has also has thrown an INT this year.

tdible2132's picture

Baylor in a dog fight with KSU.  KSU is missing their top 2 receivers and is up 25-21 with 45 seconds left in the the 3rd.  And yes, this is the same Baylor that would be a 7 point favorite over our Buckeyes on a nuetral site.  Keep on hating world, the Buckeyes are legit whether you want to believe it or not.

NoVA Buckeye's picture

So does this mean Kansas State would be an 11 point favorite over the Buckeyes at a neutral site?

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

AndyVance's picture

Well, Bill Snyder is a helluva coach...

AJW_16's picture

TD Clemson. We need the Tigers defense to give up another long score.

Utah is moving the ball on Stanford. It's beginning to look like our hope for an upset of an unbeaten today is coming down to the Utes.

LEBRON

Idaho Helga's picture

Rut-roh sez Scooby Doo.  Mgoblog has gone from attacking Gardner to Hoke.   Maybe they need a doughnut to settle them down.

OfficerRabbit's picture

I'm really struggling here.. On one hand I know we need TTUN to win to help our SOS, but damn is it fun to watch them wallow in mediocrity. I'm actually cringing when Gardner arm-punts to Penn State players, it's not funny anymore, just sad.

 

 

onetwentyeight's picture

I'm not struggling. EMBRACE the Schadenfreude! F*CK MICHIG@N forever and always no qualifiers or SOS BS excuses needed. 

Idaho Helga's picture

Disagree.   It's still funny.

onetwentyeight's picture

WELP I been saying for over a year now that Hoke was a fraud of a coach. All media HYPE about Michigan's resurrection aside, it's finally looking like he's getting exposed.

GoBucks10's picture

So, Northwestern getting absolutely stomped by UW.  Does that help us, or not.....

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

Deadly Nuts's picture

We already beat both of them. Really no effect.

LEBRON

GoBucks10's picture

Fair enough.  Hopefully it shows we just had a bad game against NU.  At least M...igan is having a horrendous game, just the way things should be.

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

AndyVance's picture

I think it's time to start hoping we play a ranked Nebraska in the B1G championship game... We could probably use a victory over another ranked opponent since it's not looking so good for TTUN.

GoBucks10's picture

Agree.  Having a repeat against a team we've already played wouldn't really help much (although beating M...igan twice would be hilarious).

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

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Nebraska will be ranked again after this week. They have a moderately tough streak ahead (NW, @TTUN, Sparty, @Penn State), but nothing unmanageable.

Bishop just excommunicated the Ducks. Washington only down 7 now, whole quarter to play.

If we can't get a Clemsoning, let's at least get the Ducks out of the way.

Clemson is going to get smashed by FSU...

LEBRON

BME_Buckeye's picture

Yes. And then FSU will jump us, and everyone will complain. Rinse, wash , repeat.  

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

 

RedStorm45's picture

guys Clemson, Oregon, and Baylor are so good.

(I would say  Gooooooo Utah but I think I'm starting to be a bad luck charm.  Shhhhh. Don't tell.)

Lol, Clemson won.

Clemson: "You can't be a national champion if you can't win the close matchups" said in a close win over an UNRANKED TEAM
Ohio State: "you have to win big to prove you belong, because style points matter." said in a close win over a RANKED TEAM
The hypocrisy oozes!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Idaho Helga's picture

Post of the day, Squirrel.   I was enjoying the chaos and hypocrisy

Hovenaut's picture

Yep.

Already bracing for the "Clemson was just looking ahead" talk.

BC was toe to toe with them for three quarters, too bad they fizzled in the fourth.

TTUN is turrible.  Can't wait for November.   They might win this, but they are turrible.

BUCKfutter's picture

All the media pollsters that jumped Clemson over us after week 1 have no choice but to flip us back now. Clemson's best win (UGA) is a fraud and they struggled to beat an awful BC at home, whereas we have beaten two ranked opponents in a row.  I don't think it will happen, which will just further prove the anti OSU bias in the media.  Thank goodness that poll matters not.

UW pounds it and we just ran through NU's defense. Kind of a no-brainer pick.

Wow - TSUN was suppose to be so great on defense - they really suck!

buckeyedude's picture

I just have one thing to say:
These teams suck. Ohio State would smoke Michelin or Penn State on their WORST day. That is all.

 

 

dumpus's picture

you know, its games like Ped St vs M*ch*gan that are the reason the Big10 is about 4 inches above the AAC in the college football hierarchy; 36 consecutive plays by both teams combined from inside the 25 yard line over the course of 4 OT periods that didn't even threaten to break the 15 yard line. Big10 games may be entertaining from time to time, but the quality of the football is just awful...from the very top down to the very bottom...and even lower than the bottom down to where michigan lives.  except for us, of course.  sigh.  

OSUbonobo23's picture

Not sure why someone downvoted you. That overtime was atrocious. My friends and I were laughing at how after 3 overtimes we had a total of 6 points. The playcalling was so great in overtime. No wonder those programs are mocked.

I put the The, in The Ohio State Univeristy.

BTBuckeye's picture

Utah doing dirty work!!!

No more Georgia

Clemson looked weak

oregon shot par

Penn St. Was definitely the best worst team on the field

OSUbonobo23's picture

Oregon and Baylor with nice wins today!! Sorry haters, exciting football shall prevail.

I put the The, in The Ohio State Univeristy.

cinserious's picture

The main victory Ohio State got Saturday was Stanford losing to Utah.
Georgia going down was a little help too. Everything else was either no help or hurt us.
Clemson will play FSU next week. One will be ahead of us, one behind. Its that simple.
Progress has been made this week and I'm very excited about it but we still need two things to happen to come in as the (underdog) number two: Oregon loses to a 1-loss Stanford AND the winner of Clemson/FSU eventually loses to the other in ACC championship or their respective in-state rival (South Carolina or Florida).
....aaand for the B1G, well they did typical Big-Ten shit!
#18 UM loses
MSU (who we don't play) stomps Indiana
Ranked Northwestern loses to Wisky
The conference did OSU no favors today. But then again when do they ever?
