Good stuff Remy these run downs always set the tone.

Thanks Unholy Bucknut.
Hopefully the Buckeyes will set the tone early and bury the Wildcats.

Great write up.  One small note, you have the incorrect tOSU/Wisconsin score at the top of the article.

Fixed. Typo on my part.
Thanks for the friendly help.

I'm really enjoying your rundowns Remy, and the new thing-a-ma-jig you do after the games. (Can't remember the name, hangs head in shame.)

That's ok Doc it's a new article that I wrote for the first time last week.
Glad you liked it.
The name of the article is The Ohio State Effect: Wisconsin.
Monday I'll post The Ohio State Effect: Northwestern.

That Dontre run should come with a warning.  Hypnotized me for like 3 minutes!

I wasn't sure of the exact statistical comparisons until I read this, so I commend your sensational write up Rizzemy.  All of my doubts were alleviated when I saw that Maine put up 21 and Syracuse put up 27 on the Nerdcats.  Braxton Miller.  That's all you really have to say.
Those Northnerdstern Wildnerds will be feeling hella nerdstalgic for 2004 after we torch their nerdfense for 500 yards and 40 points. We have shown that we can stop the run, so I'll generously give their Quarternerds 250 yards through the air and 2 nerddowns.
