ONE Not Done! Oyster 13 Nov 2013, 6:43 am Don't forget about Scheelhaase. He can make things happen. I'm not predicting an upset, but I do think they will be able to move the ball, especially if OSU goes up early and starts rotating players in the 2nd half. "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) TMac 13 Nov 2013, 6:56 am You're right, even winning 63-14 we gave up 350+ yards to Hackenberg......In the end, winning is most important, and winning by 40 is more important than yds. ONE Not Done! TMac 13 Nov 2013, 7:04 am I'd wager our Defense holds them under our average 88 yards rushing. (The Illini average 136 yds per game rushing) ONE Not Done! ChazBuckeye 13 Nov 2013, 9:28 am I'd say the defense steps up big time against this Illni Offense. 150 total yards or less! Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry. GingerBuckeye 13 Nov 2013, 10:28 am 276 total yards for Illinois on this Saturday. ScarletGray43157 13 Nov 2013, 10:31 am I think OSU gives up less than 300 yards but over 250 on Saturday of this week. About 40% of that will come against the backups after the game has been decided. In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land... Hovenaut Mod 13 Nov 2013, 12:50 pm 250 sounds about right to me. I think the Buckeye offense sets the tone per usual....scoring early and often. The Illini will have to start passing earlier and with more frequency in an effort to keep up. Hoping to see that pass rush in full force as well. http://days.to/7-september/2015 Rock on. Kindell 13 Nov 2013, 12:55 pm Our offense scores a lot, and they do it fast. That gives the other teams plenty of chances to get some yards. This defense has still been playing much much better the past couple of games. Buckeye in Illi... 13 Nov 2013, 1:20 pm I think they'll give up ~300 yards. Final score: 52-13. Illinois' offense is not nearly as inept as Purdue's. Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.

BassDropper 13 Nov 2013, 4:54 pm 145 yards 30 rushing, 115 passing DIRECTIONER painterlad 14 Nov 2013, 5:10 am Are you sure they are averaging 425 yards per game? Illinois hasn't won a BIG game since Hoke last saw his own feet. To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.
