Just heard on gameday that Hyde will play but not start.

Fuck m*ch*gan! That is all.

GoBucks10's picture

Hopefully not injured... Just giving others a chance. He needs another 100 yards.

610 just announced it was because he missed a class this week.

GoBucks10's picture

Good for UFM penalizing him. Stupid to miss a class. (Assuming there isn't a good reason)

If this were true back in the day when I played............ I never would have seen the field

GoBucks10's picture

I took classes where the players were in. They had a team of people check in them in and verifying their hw is done. No judgement to El Guapo at all, but come on...he's got a free ride.

Perry and Grant out with injuries.

Knarcisi's picture

C Grant and Perry out, Hyde not starting because of class issues. Did I miss something on 11W this week?  The media didn't get these updates this week?

Ha Ha herbie stabbed corso and drew blood.

Seattle Linga's picture

It was just announced during the pregame

Only got to the 22, but does Dontre have some moves or what. I hope he breaks that 50 or 60 yarder today.

Not good passing from Braxton right now

It's kinda tough to make accurate passes in 20 MPH wind. We just need to stick to the run game.

Let someone else return punts. Brown has been awful this year.

b_pbucksfans's picture

Why is Philly Brown still returning punts? He has been consistently horrible all year.

RedStorm45's picture

Right?  Fumbles, muffs, negative yards.

KBonay's picture

It's ok. More yards for HYDE.

No worries. We're explosive in our short game too.

Anyone else notice we pretty much abandoned that two point conversion formation after the SDSU game? Wonder why. Can't hurt to practice it vs Illinois or Purdue.

Practice for if we need it later. Not going to show it on film this late in the season.

What do you think everyone is thinking while watching? How will this offense play against teams like FSU and BAMA. Stalling out against ILL too many times is not looking good is all. Are they winning? yes, but looking sloppy after a bye.

Good way to put it. I am glad for the winning, but not the best of games thus far

The Buckeyes brought their B- game for the first half. Even the offense hasn't looked great. 

ScarletNGrey01's picture

News Flash guys ... there are two halves to a game.  Think the first team will stay in a little longer to get some style points and to try to shut down the Illni offense.  Remember, they have been scoring points all season, but defensively are inept.  Meyer will get them jacked up during the halftime.

News flash, no one thinks OSU is going to lose...people are afraid of getting jumped in the polls. OSU is looking not good after the BYE on both sides of the ball.

jaxbuckeye's picture

As much as I love blaming Fickell, many of these defensive players suck.  There's no getting around it.  Even when we have a pretty consistent rush, players are open.  Even when there are 4 defenders and 3 receivers, they convert.  Wonder where Urban will vote us now?

This game bit us in the ass when they decided to focus on Braxton Miller's passing and got away from pounding it with Carlos Hyde. Illinois would've scored 14 tops even with the punt return for TD. Millers still slinging it around, misfiring and killing drives. This is the game in a nutshell. Miller kills us. He is not and will never be a legit QB,

Dude... Did you watch the Wisconsin/Penn State/Purdue games? Miller has progressed so much. He isn't a great all around QB yet but he can make great throws and he has shown us that this year. He's made plenty of throws this year that he wouldn't have made in 2012.
 
Also, we are playing in the Wind Tunnel. 

jaxbuckeye's picture

Double up vote.  Absolutely 100% nailed it.  Miller slinging it (not very well btw) killed the drives and gave Illinois so many more opportunities than they would have had had we road Hyde to a 50+ win.  Now our defense is exposed and here comes the hate.  So do BOTH Stanford AND Baylor jump us now?

Watching Hyde bulldoze the Illini  D at he end is really pissing me off because they could've done this the whole game. Miller runs up the middle and throws a shitty pass up the middle AND KiILlS yet another drive. Are you Fucking kidding me? We've done this all game! Hyde could've run for 300 yards today. They took him out and ran the Braxton Miller Show and the offense stalled again. Tom Herman is supposed to be member of Mensa, well.......

To your point...TD Hype.

51 yard TD by Hyde! I hate to be that guy, but Stanford beat Oregon by not deviating from what works and pounded the ball the entire game waiting or Oregon to stop it.
Alabama pounded away at LSU and eventually wore them down. We should've done this with Hyde but we wasted more than half of the game trying to get Braxton Miller his Passing Stats! The Defense is playing lights out after that TD run. All of those 3 and outs by Miller takes the energy out of the D!!!
 
and how many times has Cory Brown lost yardage on punt returns today?

Looks like the defense that played the first few weeks of the season

Stanford won't jump us, neither will Baylor.

If Baylor wins out, I don't see how they don't.

13 wins > 12 wins. That Sparty game will make all the difference. 

Brandon26841's picture

True. Forgot that the Big 12 doesn't have a championship game.

Johnston is averaging 57.0 yards on six kicks?  Is that stat correct?  Wow.  Guess he is the star of the game at this point.

This isn't a "DERP-FIREFICKEL-DERP-DERP-THISTEAMSUCKS" post...
With that being said, I may be cool with a Rose Bowl bid on January 1st this year. There are some obvious holes in this team, and while I think this is a great team, they are not ready to be the best. Meyer, Herman, Fickell, and co. are building a power here and that's obvious. We don't NEED a national championship in Meyer's second year. We're recruiting awesome, we've won 21 (22 soon) in a row, and I think this team can surge into next year being 26-0 with a Big Ten Championship and a Rose Bowl win.

Note: I didn't mean "building a power here" as if we aren't already a power. Meant that more in the sense of "dynasty" power.

I'll go ahead and second this.  I really want the success, the NC, etc ... just don't think this is the year.
I will also comment that I hate Roby's effort when he just tried to deliver a blow instead of making a tackle.  I just picture this burning us at some point in the spotlight.

This is not a National Championship caliber team today. Hopefully, we'll see that again for the rest of the games.

We need another garbage time score.

On another positive note, the talk about Tom Herman being a head coach candidate might cease today and we can have a nice staff continuity going into next season.

Yes. They seriously need to look at that. Corey isn't doing well returning punts for some reason.

STANFORD lost to effing Utah!?  What do you mean they jump us?!  Thank you, mute button.

and who thinks that is a good win other than some OSU fans? All I hear is that was a bad game and not impressive.

Hyde is an automatic 10 yards per carry don't give it to him anymore. After this touchdown, that is. Fuck Basil thanks for taking up a scholly
