PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I'm not an X's & O's guy but I would say whether or not our D front 7 is containing their running attack.
Agree that if our defense can contain there running game we should be able to win as there passing game is not that good.
Dontre Wilson's breakout game. It will happen.
The scoreboard. I'm pretty sure who ever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
Conversely, whoever has the least amount of points usually loses.
That's the beauty of this site. I'm sure the contributors will cover this in detail over the next few days. Worry not.

A #Karma tweet from Mrs. Bert. Then a report that Arkansas loses their next 4.

THE Ohio State University
During a game, I can't watch anything but the ball, but if OSU is winning it is probably because we are winning two particular matchups. First, Corey Linsey v Beau Allen is a critical matchup. Allen and Borland are Wiscy's two best defenders, but Borland can't be effective with a guard in his chest all game. Allen isn't a darting, penetrating kind of NG, but he can eat up space and clog the middle, allowing Borland to make plays. If Linsey can neutralize Allen, we'll be able to run all over Wiscy. Second, pay attention to Roby v Abracadabra (or whatever Wiscy's one WR's name is). With Pedersen doubtful for Saturday's game, Abra --oh I give up-- is their only real threat in the passing game. If Roby can shut him down, we can load up 8-9 in the box and fill every gap. Winning those two matchups goes along way to securing the win.
A good ol' A$$ whoopin !
I'm not saying, I'm just saying.
I approve this message!
Unless all we've seen from the team so far has been smoke and mirrors I believe it will be a bloodbath. Wisky can't handle our offense. Our defense should be able to keep their passing game in check and points to an acceptable level; no matter how well they run the ball.
So, look for blood in the water.

Vinnie Jones from Eurotrip referred to it as a "fucking good kicking".
That's what you should watch for.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
Whats the weather forecast?
I'd describe it as "ball dipping weather." Around 70 at kickoff, and low 60's by the end.
The trenches, both sides.
Their running backs, our linebackers.
Joel Stave, whoever is taking snaps for the Buckeyes (no one will tell me).

Psst, Hove...(looks around)....I can't give you the name, but his initials are CJ. 2nd half against FAMU sealed it.
Make sure you watch for this guy. He's got some major pom-poms.
What is he going to do when it rains?
Containing Melvin Gordon. He is by far the best running back we will have seen this year. James White and Clement are good backs as well, but Gordon to me is on a different level.
*I predict Roby will have another INT this game*

I'd watch for a bunch of drunken 11Dubs staggering in from E2B! I have a feeling they're going to be primed for the game. P.S. They'll probably look something like this....
Wisconsin secondary vs. Osu Wide Receivers
While Ohio State's players hurdled the brick walls of Michigan Stadium in their throwback uniforms to celebrate with Buckeye fans, Michigan tailback Michael Shaw sobbed uncontrollably while walking off the field. - Grand Rapid Press (21-10 OSU)<
Will Stave stay upright if they resort to passing the ball
Are you married or single? Once you answer that question the answer to your question becomes much clearer.lol
Joking aside I would say our ability to clog up the middle, not letting Gordon get loose on the perimeter, how often Bryant is in the box, if Roby shadows Abbrederis 1 on 1 all night and how comfortable Braxton looks in the pocket. That should give you something to look for......unless you're single.
