PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Clemson hasn't looked good so far... Hopefully it stays that way.
agreed, their oline seems to be having issues with NC State...if NC State can generate a couple scoring drives they could pull of the upset and add to the lore of Raleigh
Clemson on upset alert? These are the types of games they've had trouble with in recent years.
Clemson honestly looks like a different team than the one I saw a couple weeks ago. Not saying they won't win this one, but they don't look as sharp.
This is why I say it will be rare if we see 3 unbeatens at the end of the of the year. 20 year old kids. Tough to have it all every week.
You also (generally) have about 12 different game plans in college football to put together, install and implement each and every week. Whereas in the NFL, while there are some small changes, every team runs basically the same style of offense/defense. You might have 5-7 truly different styles to prepare for in the NFL. It makes it very difficult for college kids with limited practice and work during the week to be fully prepared week in and week out.
When my kids are done playing Wii, I'll be tuning in. Hopefully there is a chance NC State is still within striking distance. I want steady, top notch performances from the Buckeyes this year, and root for chaos, everywhere else.
Let those kids play til midnight. Good luck so far!
NC State driving...
TTUN fans would rather talk tOSU failures in the past ten years than their own successes. Probably because they haven't had a lot of success.
This could be a perfect storm... Clemson usually loses one game each year they should win easily and NC State usually wins a random Thursday night home game against a high ranked opponent.
"Okay -- I've got an El Camino full of rampage here."
I guess there is another team with tackling as bad as us.
If NC State wins I'll add them to my wolfpack.
Carter-Finley Stadium, where ACC national title aspirations go to die.
I like their wolf howl they pipe in after big plays. Lot cooler then that damn cat that Penn St uses.
"Play for Ohio State or get beat by Ohio State. That simple." - Kirk Barton
Thinking long term here, the best scenario is for there to be only 2 unbeatens this year - tOSU vs. Clemson for the crystal football
Clemson always seems to drop a game or two every year
As fun of a game that would be I could only imagine the entire south saying "Its not a real National Championship game if an SEC team isn't playing"
If Clemson is in the title game it would mean they beat Georgia and South Carolina. The SEC would have no legit complaint.
"But they didn't beat Bama... Roll Tide" -- SEC fan's... probably
Clemson or Louisville would be the only teams where we would be favorites....
NC State blowing a great opportunity
Let's all give a toast to Tajh Boyd tonight. He isn't playing that bad, looks a little impressive, but his turning down his Ohio State offer was the first domino that fell and led us to Kenny G. Thanks Tajh!
No offense to Kenny, he is one of my favorite all time Buckeyes now for his service, but if we had Tahj, we wouldn't need Kenny.
Pull a Clemson!
NC State has an awful punter.
Somewhere Jimmy T just had a tear roll down his cheek.
That one was pretty good... 52 and on the sideline.
It doesn't appear either of these teams has a "power" run game...
Ughh. This NC St O needs to keep it north and south.
Why did Reece Davis do that? Sounded convinced he was out of bounds ...
Never out! where is the replay???
That was definitely a TD. Bad call
Lousy call. NC State ends up losing close that'll raise a bigger stink than the Wisconsin game did. Some of these officials are really questionable.
"Sherman ran an option play right through the south" - Greatest Civil War analogy EVER.
Well, this is bullshit. The referees have been absolutely worthless this year.
And then a fumble. Clemson just got gifted this game. Might have been close, but not now.
Oh fuck this!
That was an absolutely pathetic call. Those referees need to be stripped of their stripes; what a joke. Nice to see Clemson getting the SEC breaks; makes me wonder if we are going to get screwed at some point this season.
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
All scoring plays are reviewable. Not sure who just pulled this "unless outside the five yard line" shit out of their ass
No replay on out of bounds outside the 5 yard line? Replay was put in place to get it right. Change the damn rule and get it right!
Johnblairs kids need to start playing Wii again!
Get those kids some Skittles and let em go!
Skittles, pixie sticks and Mountain Dew!
well sh!t. Clemson better hope Boyd stays healthy, or they'll fade faster than Cleveland Browns season ticket sales.
And they score... Christmas has come early, Clemson. It won't happen again.
3 throat slashes and no penalty! We need consistent officiating in the NCAA! Oh, wait, it's the NCAA.
Way to go, refs. Game over now with that Clemson TD. Remember this moment if we're undefeated watching Clemson v. Oregon in the title game.
There you go ref, he's out of bounds now.
What a freaking joke. College refs are an absolute embarrassment.
Pick by the Ref!!! You can't write comedy like this! Lmao
Tonight's Drinking Game: Take a drink every time you hear the wolf!!!!
What is the record for most false starts in a game?
Ask J.B. Shugharts
I swear the refs get worse every year.
Either way after watching 3 Clemson games this year, there is no WAY they are in the top 5. No way!
Clemson will take care of themselves, they always do. Plus, look at their schedule. Sit back and wait patiently for the inevitable.
Was actually hoping they would get a false start on that FG so they would go for it.
NC States QB is average at best. Pretty generic player that is making alot of p!ss poor throws. Change the uniforms, and I would easily believe I was watching a Michigan State, Pitt or Purdue offense.
To be fair to NC State, they would be playing Jacoby Brissett (Florida Transfer), if he weren't out for a year because he transferred.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Should be 21-19 NCSU right now...
Assuming the score stays 26-14, should the Buckeyes jump Clemson?
Edit: Also assuming we kick the crap out of FAMU...
"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."
No. We play a fcs cupcake at home, clemson plays a fbs conference team on the road who may have a good year. Ohio state would not be worthy to jump anyone even if we blew famu out by 70. Beating fcs teams means nothing. But but but oregon beat nicholas state; so what.
Insert witty remark
That was pretty ridiculous for a team that jumped OSU. I would like it if they did
Clemson could win by 2, and still stay ahead of Ohio State. Heck, I expect Stanford or LSU(might be both) to jump Ohio State Sunday.
