Choices Yes. Bradley Roby's dad had a dream about it. No. He's only thrown two interceptions this season. Vote Comments Show All Comments yrro 23 Oct 2012, 7:00 am Yes, because if there's anything that Penn State cares about, it's Tradition. 4dorr 23 Oct 2012, 7:56 am PSU fans act as if their team is unbeatbable. Tomorrow BME_Buckeye 23 Oct 2012, 8:15 am Yes because Chris Gamble said OSU is having a 2002 year. Since he had an intercept against Penn State for a TD, Roby will too. His dad merely confirmed it. Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see. BucksfanXC 23 Oct 2012, 8:36 am Did his dad have another dream or is that a joke? Either way, I voted yes because it's necessary for a win over PSU. “Any time you give a man something he doesn't earn, you cheapen him. Our kids earn what they get, and that includes respect.” - Woody Sarah 23 Oct 2012, 3:01 pm Just a joke, but there are still a few more days for one of the Robys to get prophetic again. BoFuquel 23 Oct 2012, 9:14 am If we couldn't pick PU on the same screen play after play, Y U think we any smarter this time?GO BUCKS! I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then. Earle 23 Oct 2012, 9:18 am I'd like to see it, but I just don't see it. Wait, isn't this the Shyamalan thread? Crap. Snarkies gonna snark. gwalther 23 Oct 2012, 9:39 am GREAT poll. Haha. Just a great poll. Well done. Class of 2008 Alhan 23 Oct 2012, 10:04 am Power of positive thinking folks! I predict he at least doubles the amount of picks he's thrown this year. Who's with me?! "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke bleedscarletpis... 23 Oct 2012, 3:05 pm Here, here! Dougger 23 Oct 2012, 11:33 am these games are always close. except in 2010 when PeeSU came out to a great first half, then we got our sh.t together and rolled them. pick six then. pick six now. and i'll try not to spill my beer all over myself at Eddie George's I like football buckeyeEddie27 23 Oct 2012, 11:57 am http://www.persianfootball.com/forums/showthread.php?91139-College-Football-Coach-Jim-Tressel-s-Halftime-Speech-At-Halftime-Of-The-Penn-St-Game dougger, you ever seen this before? I've seen it a few places so there is a chance it's accurate...if it is, it shows why we came out and killed 'em in the second half. I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there. BME_Buckeye 23 Oct 2012, 12:13 pm If I had enough sticks, I'd upvote this link.... I wonder now what Meyer is telling these kids. Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see. NC_Buckeye 23 Oct 2012, 12:26 pm Has that locker-room admonition ever been confirmed by a player? It's not like any Tressel-speak I've ever seen. Aesculus excellentium cum MCMLXV. Pam 23 Oct 2012, 12:46 pm It's not true. My first tip was JT saying G!@ Damn it. He would never say that. NC_Buckeye 23 Oct 2012, 2:27 pm That's what I thought. Thanks Pam. Aesculus excellentium cum MCMLXV. buckeyeEddie27 23 Oct 2012, 3:20 pm I'd like to think it's true. As genuine, devout, and (some would disagree) honorable as Tress is, I think in the confines of a locker room in front of trusted players and personnel he could allow himself to embrace the moment and let some language fly. He was a football coach not a Pastor after all. Certainly not everyday language but in that setting I think it was entirely possible. I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there. Poison nuts 23 Oct 2012, 5:50 pm Yeah - I imagine that the man we saw & heard was not always the same man who time & again motivated a bunch of 20 year old kids to win at a rate that is almost unequaled, so I too would like to believe that's a fairly true story. He may have been a good guy, but he was also a man who's job it was light a fire under the asses of an entire football team. I'm gonna go ahead & buy that story just so I can picture JT hollering & cussing his way to a win.. "Do not pass me, just slow down - I can move right through you" Superchunk - Precision Auto. Buckeyebrowny919 23 Oct 2012, 12:08 pm it is not "necessary" for a win over State Penn but it sure would be nice To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift - Steve Prefontaine Buckeye_Mafia 23 Oct 2012, 12:38 pm Sorry, but I am not impressed with Penn State as of now. Who have they beaten so far? Navy, Temple, Illinois, Northwestern, and Iowa? They lost to Ohio and barely escaped Northwestern....Time for Matt McMoxie to come back to earth this saturday. "At critical moments throughout the season, we learned about the character of this football team. This was a team of true character, of true resilience." -- President Barack Obama Doc 23 Oct 2012, 12:42 pm People could say the same thing about us. Neb barely beat Nerdwestern and the the wheels are coming off of Sparty. CJDPHoS Member The Official DDS of 11W Alhan 23 Oct 2012, 12:50 pm Doc, what you're seeing is what happens to every team when they play us. Demoralization! "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke Doc 23 Oct 2012, 3:15 pm Haha! I get it we are the biggest game on most everyone's schedule. After a beating the wheels fall off, or you blame the refs. CJDPHoS Member The Official DDS of 11W BrewstersMillions 23 Oct 2012, 12:43 pm Regression to the mean. That's what happens Saturday. Matt McGloin is Matt McGloin and will remind us of that in a few days. Buckeye in Illi... 23 Oct 2012, 1:21 pm Northwestern is a decent team, and Ohio is undefeated, albeit against MACtion. We have squeeked by several teams this year as well (Cal, IU, and Purdon't come to mind). Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.

Alhan 23 Oct 2012, 1:17 pm Lets see this again on Saturday please! "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke VHX7 23 Oct 2012, 8:37 pm This picture makes me smile every time, especially when I remember how douchy he was acting in the first half of that game. GoBucks713 23 Oct 2012, 3:02 pm The question should be will he, but how many? I think Bradley Roby goes off in this game and Travis Howard reminds us why he was called "Howard Island" prior to last season. I see the D getting it done in this game and the O going off like no other. -The Aristocrats! Nkohl13 23 Oct 2012, 3:08 pm I voted no. Just playing the odds. Poison nuts 23 Oct 2012, 5:59 pm A pick six is due...it's in the air. "Do not pass me, just slow down - I can move right through you" Superchunk - Precision Auto. jestertcf 23 Oct 2012, 7:00 pm I voted no. I doubt they throw it past 3 yard bubble screens. ~Because we couldn't go for three~ sir rickithda3rd 23 Oct 2012, 7:13 pm matt mcgloin doesnt worry me much. bill obrien though according to mike wilbons sources "is having a unfathomable amount of success everywhere in that program" fwiw mark may wins douchebag of the year... again WC Buckeye 23 Oct 2012, 8:04 pm I think that even though there will be bubble screen attempts galore, we bait them early then drop a spy, leading to at least 2 picks, and probably a recovered fumble or two - Simon's going to go medieval and pop a few screws (and footballs) loose. The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.
