The defense gets one on a turnover. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 8:58 am Urban is going to put up 70 if he can, the days of holding back after going up by 10 are gone. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:03 am Whats with 70 as a fixed number? I doubt they get to 50. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 9:24 am I did not realize I said they would..... I simply said "IF". Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:35 am It just seems like everyone is saying they are going to drop 70 on Saturday. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 9:37 am I would like to see Ohio State score between 50-70 and the Defense get a couple TD's in that total. I am excited about this new culture and angry pissed off attitude that has not been seen in over a decade. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:55 am I am excited about the new culture as well, but are you saying during that magical 10 years under Tressel we didn't have one angry or pissed off team? You don't think the 2007 team was pissed off from getting clown stomped against the Gators..and the 2008 team full of seniors that lost the title game to LSU? I think not! BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 10:00 am I was never a fan of Tress, just Ohio State Football. I will keep my opinion about Tress to myself so as not to cause a bad exchange. Tomorrow Pam 28 Aug 2012, 1:21 pm You probably should have followed you own advice. bassplayer7770 28 Aug 2012, 10:03 am It's different to be pissed off after a game than before it. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 10:14 am Let's find out if Laurinaitis and Malcolm Jenkins were never played pissed off during their 4 year careers. We weren't pissed off and angry for the 2006 Michigan game? Come on! It's one thing to be excited for the new coaching styles and culture etc...but to just act like we were a shitty unmotivated football team for 10 years, well that's just plain ignorant. BUCKEYES BABY! bassplayer7770 28 Aug 2012, 10:14 am I didn't mean to imply former players were never pissed off before a game, but I certainly don't recall Coach Tress ever saying publicly that he wanted an angry, pissed off football team. Plus, I'd rather see a team who is angry and ready to destroy Miami on Saturday rather than a team who comes out flat and ends up playing a close game against an inferior opponent. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 10:20 am I want a pumped up team that doesn't come out and play flat either..I think we all want that. I just think the whole "playing angry" thing is overrated. You could be angry all you want..but once you get hit in the mouth it all comes down to talent, execution, and who's better conditioned. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 10:31 am Just my opinion here..... I never remember Tress allowing his team to be angry and show intense emotion, as a matter of fact, Tress never showed emotion. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 10:37 am NEVER? You must have missed some games then. I get it, you don't like Tressel. BUCKEYES BABY! Pam 28 Aug 2012, 10:52 am Never? I have seen Tressel pissed off on the sidelines and seen his teams show emotion whether it be anger or elation. I love watching the last few minutes of the Rose Bowl when the players were jacked up and he was yelling "It's not over!" Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 10:56 am ^^^thankyou BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 11:45 am Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 11:50 am ^^^ cute show me one of Brian Kelly and let me know if Hes a better coach then Tressel..k thanks. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 11:51 am Brian Kelly never coached the Ohio State Buckeyes. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 11:56 am Just give up dude..you just come off as a little hater. BUCKEYES BABY! 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 11:59 am Because I have an opinion I am a hater? I guess I will take that instead of sounding delusional and ignorant. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 12:09 pm Ok, your opinion is that Tressel "NEvEr" showed any emotion..which is obviously false. That makes your "opinion" sound delusional and ignorant. BUCKEYES BABY! bassplayer7770 28 Aug 2012, 12:13 pm Hey, 4Dorr and BuckeyeJason, you know who's awesome? Me. :-D 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 12:14 pm I agree Bassplayer, thanks for ending it on that note. Tomorrow Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 12:16 pm Just for saying that..you are soooooo not awesome! lol BUCKEYES BABY! Pam 28 Aug 2012, 12:16 pm No he did not, however the point is that showing emotion or not has no bearing on how good a coach is. Brian Kelly is embarassing. Even when JT was pissed, he never turned purple and dropped F bombs. Tressel kept his emotions in check and was a very good coach. Kelly is a lunatic and hasn't shown anyone he is that great of a coach. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 12:20 pm ^^ thank you again! waiting for his next Tressel comment.... BUCKEYES BABY! TheBadOwl 28 Aug 2012, 4:06 pm Personally, I was never a huge Tressel fan, either. But maybe that's because I wasn't really an OSU fan until I decided to go to school here. Tressel definitely had some great qualities, but if you're comparing his levels of motivation to those of Urban Meyer, you really have no idea. Just look at that Florida/OSU national championship game. That Florida team was SO fired up coming into that game, and as much as everyone here hates to admit it, Tressel's teams have always been, IMO, very undercoached. Not ENTIRELY Tressel's fault, but the fact that he was so loyal to bad coordinators (i.e. Walrus) and had an incredibly rigid gameplan and reserved demeanor is VERY different from the hypercompetitive style of Urban Meyer. The Tressel-era teams were bailed out because of individually great athletes. Troy Smith, Ted Ginn, Beanie Wells, Terrelle Pryor, etc.... but the line play has been awful, the conditioning hasn't been up to par with SEC teams, the quarterback coaching has been VERY poor for years now (which explains why Smith and Pryor never really developed that well as passers), and that's why his teams routinely lost to great teams like USC, Texas, Florida and LSU. All of those teams had some combination of 1) a great QB, 2) a great D-Line, and 3) Innovative playcalling. The coaching should take a large portion of the blame for the Tressel-era teams. Is he a great guy? Yes. Did he run a good program? Yes. Is it on the same level as the program that Urban ran at Florida? I really don't think so. When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect. Waffles 28 Aug 2012, 1:11 pm 4dorr is a noob, Tressel is god 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 1:14 pm <3 waffles.... :) Tomorrow GABuckeye 28 Aug 2012, 9:11 am On offense or defense?!?! buckeyeEddie27 28 Aug 2012, 10:01 am What's the record for most touchdowns scored by the Buckeyes in The Shoe? Total, not just offense, but special teams and defense all combined. Whatever that number is, is what I'm thinking they shoot for. Why not try to light it up right outta the gate? Everyone knows what is said about first impressions. I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there. NoVA Buckeye 28 Aug 2012, 10:48 am I'd be a bit worried if we were held to 35 points by this weak Miami defense. The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off. Waffles 28 Aug 2012, 1:13 pm Jim Tressel would have a good half, then go into rain man mode and hope it is good enough to win. 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 1:16 pm Where is the like button? Tomorrow tampa buckeye 28 Aug 2012, 1:14 pm The first team offense better score everytime they have the ball. Special teams should get a return for a td. Defense should give them a short field to work with. 6+ td's very attainable. Bottom line is nothing can be worse than the previous coaching staff. 63-0 The Ohio State Buckeyes. Waffles 28 Aug 2012, 1:16 pm I wish my Buckeyes were as good as Wisconsin BME_Buckeye 28 Aug 2012, 2:01 pm Waffle, I see you.... We don't wanna run the score up on people. Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see. bassplayer7770 28 Aug 2012, 1:17 pm Here are some quotes (posted by Brandon Castel on Twitter) from Coach Warinner I think are very fitting here. We're going to try to be the aggressor on offense, not just try to ease our way into it and see what the defense does. It's a new philosophy, an aggressive approach in all phases - run, pass game, attacking people, saying, "we're coming after you." I think that there needs to be a transformation (here) from previous to new style, a new way of doing business. We're not going to ease into games where we're going to come out and just pound a few up the middle and be real conservative. sir rickithda3rd 28 Aug 2012, 1:24 pm jason, bro, u come off very condescending. Not trying to start a fight with anyone but your comments can get ppl defensive fast mark may wins douchebag of the year... again Waffles 28 Aug 2012, 1:36 pm Yeah Jason, this Wisconsin lover is right, you come off as a meanie head Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 7:21 pm Why thank you kind sir. Maybe thats my plan? BUCKEYES BABY! BrewstersMillions 28 Aug 2012, 7:56 pm Emitting tone over the internet is the bigger story. Jason, you sir have won the internet. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 8:06 pm I WON THE INTERWEBZ!?!? Sweeeeet!!! BUCKEYES BABY! sir rickithda3rd 28 Aug 2012, 1:41 pm lol thats how u feel huh waffles? mark may wins douchebag of the year... again Bucksfan 28 Aug 2012, 1:44 pm I hate to get involved with this here, but it's no secret that Jim Tressel's teams could be infuriating to watch at times. Tressel's 40+ point game totals... 2001: 0 2002: 4 2003: 1 2004: 0 2005: 4 (didn't start until November) 2006: 4 (didn't start until late October...and this was his best offense) 2007: 1 2008: 4 (one was an accident against Northwestern, Tressel was visibly upset by the last minute score) 2009: 1 2010: 5 (career high, with a team that had 4 offensive starters that he knowingly played ineligibly). Urban Meyer while at Florida never had less than 3 games where his team scored 40+ points in a given season. 2005: 3 2006: 3 2007: 8 2008: 8 (including a run of 7 straight) 2009: 6 2010: 3 So, get out your calculators, boys and girls. We're about to get spoiled by points. Waffles 28 Aug 2012, 1:48 pm Urban needed those points since his Defense wasnt as good as the Silver Bullets William 28 Aug 2012, 2:45 pm What? Meyer had very good defenses at UF, just ask Troy Smith or Sam Bradford... BrewstersMillions 28 Aug 2012, 2:54 pm How good you ask? Why here you go! 2005-16th best 2006-7th best 2007-33rd (Down year) 2008-5th best 2009-3rd best 2010-35th best-the notorious burn out year. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 8:52 pm So he had 3 good defenses in 6 years...that's no Heacock-Fickell defenses lol. BUCKEYES BABY! William 28 Aug 2012, 9:07 pm 16th out of 119 isn't good? Also let's not act like the B1G was filled with dynamic offenses. I'm not saying the SEC is/was filled with dynamic offenses either, but they were on average probably more potent than most B1G offenses. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:10 pm I consider top 15 good. They just missed the cut. BUCKEYES BABY! BrewstersMillions 28 Aug 2012, 9:48 pm Um....each year he had a good defense. 35th was his worst? In a year his body failed him and mind was fried? I'll take it. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:52 pm I know I was just being sarcastic..forgot to put the sarcasm font on. BUCKEYES BABY! BrewstersMillions 28 Aug 2012, 9:54 pm Ahhh. Mah bad. Buckeyejason 28 Aug 2012, 9:56 pm He did have about a million defensive players drafted from his Florida teams too. BUCKEYES BABY! cbusbuckeye 28 Aug 2012, 3:02 pm Waffles is a troll Crimson 28 Aug 2012, 6:45 pm I disagree. I love waffles! Anyone else wanna walk over to the new Waffle House on campus with me? 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 1:50 pm Nice stats! I am excited to listen to all the scoring on the radio while sitting at my daughters soccer match. Tomorrow One Bad Buckeye 28 Aug 2012, 5:15 pm D.....V......R!!!! "I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message." grant87 28 Aug 2012, 8:42 pm Just bought a new calculator :)) I think 48-10 type of score. I see it as 300 on ground and 200 in the air. I also think a couple of turn overs keeps tOSU under 50 points. I expect some growing pains. Hrewell (Miami WR) vs. Roby will be interesting. Maybe tomorrow, when today will be yesterday things will be clearer. GO BUCKS !! Poison nuts 28 Aug 2012, 8:46 pm Tressels Reign: Most BCS appearances. Tied for most BCS wins. 1 NC - 3 appearances. 9-1 against UM. Tressel was plenty good at coaching. It's a new era though & I think we are all excited for whatever is going to happen next...I am anyway...we will see over 40 points this Saturday. "Do not pass me, just slow down - I can move right through you" Superchunk - Precision Auto. Nkohl13 28 Aug 2012, 1:49 pm We scored six tds in last years opener with bauserman starting. Just sayin. 4dorr 28 Aug 2012, 1:51 pm Bauserman was aiming for C deck and missed, he hit the WR by mistake. :) Tomorrow NoVA Buckeye 28 Aug 2012, 3:40 pm He wasn't fully warmed up yet. The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off. BrewstersMillions 28 Aug 2012, 2:42 pm Good work Bucksfan. buckeye76BHop 28 Aug 2012, 2:46 pm Miami of Ohio will give up at least 6 scores...this isn't your 42-0 Akron team from last year (we all remember where they finished). They'll have back ups in by end of 3rd bc it will be over 42 points...take it to the bank! Thank you Bucksfan...I love seeing proof right in front of my eyes (that way ppl won't open their silly mouths about how UFM won't score over 40 points). Oh it will happen...and in bunches as you proved above. "There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you." "I love football. I think it is most wonderful game in world and I despise to lose." Woody Hayes 1913 - 1987 Bucksfan 28 Aug 2012, 4:14 pm If history is any indication, he is at least going to TRY to score a lot of points. Even if he "takes his foot off the gas" in the 3rd quarter by removing the starters, he probably expects Kenny Guiton to march down the field and score a TD with the backups. And he's not going to just give him DAVE to do it. I can't wait to applaud the creativity and the effort in blowouts. Meyer is the kind of guy, from what I have seen so far, that will score on you if he can. He's got national championships on the brain, not how Mark Dantonio or Pat Fitzgerald feel about how many points by which they lost. There are countless other ways to demonstrate good sportsmanship that don't involve fucking with the scoreboard. National championships in this sport are a popularity contest. And it's going to be that way even when the playoff hits....you will still need to convince people you're one of the top-5 or 6 teams in the country.
