I have a word that describes folks who think that way.  It's another word for a cat or woman's body part.

Butter fingers, that one slipped right through my hands.  I've become addicted to sarcasm font, it wasn't there, I pulled the trigger.

thanks for tightening me up

Handle the pressure (nerves and blitz packages), limit turnovers, and get the ball into the hands of the playmakers on offense.

Contain M Gordon to limited damage, don't give up the deep ball, and get a pick or two on defense.

No muffed punts, pin them deep on special teams.

We got this. Go Bucks.

Comment 01 Dec 2014

The run game has struggled according to OSU standards, but when you take into considerations the last 4 games, I think you have to consider what OSU has faced in talent, unfortunately M Gordon is #1 in the nation.  But, we have won each time we faced these threats, we can do it again.

Mich St - T. Langford #19 in nation for 113 yards/gm. 137 vs OSU

Indiana - T. Coleman #2 in nation for 161 yards/gm. 228 vs OSU

Minnesota - D. Cobb #8 in nation for 129 yards/gm.  145 vs OSU

Michigan - gained 121 yards on OSU, avg 163 y/gm

We can do this, GO BUCKS!

I'm actually getting excited to see how this is going to turn out.  With the loss of JT, I am less stressed for some reason worrying about getting into the playoffs.  I have a certain calm that this TEAM is going to rally and reveal something special by going out there and winning this damn B1G Championship game.

Starting a tradition in Virginia.  Love hearing my 2 and 3 year old yell "Go Bucks" whenever they pass anyone with an OSU logo on clothing.  If I could only get my 1 year old to start talking,..Train em early.  Go Bucks!

Unfortunately gifs with bouncing body parts are forbidden, could have been an epic thread.

Comment 21 Oct 2014

Call me crazy, but I believe the loss to VA Tech may have been the best thing to happen to us long term.  What I mean is - it hurt, it stung - we got smacked right in the mouth with a huge serving of humble pie.  Since then, look at what this team is doing.  Would a close win vs. VA Tech done the same thing? Maybe, but the turnaround since then has been incredible, and the extra motivation was a result of that loss.  The Bucks have a legit shot at making the playoffs if we continue to focus on us and handling the teams we face, without letting another VA Tech happen.  I believe this can happen this year and I am very confident it will happen next year with a more confident and mature team.  Go Bucks!

Comment 15 Oct 2014

I too saw it happen real time, scratched my head and thought the announcers would say something with the cameras in tight on the action.  Never thought about it being illegal or anything, just some pain relief from a doc/trainer.  I believe they would be ultra cautious/conservative with all of the media attention over the concussion the week prior.  I have to assume nothing illegal.

McDonald? Are you joking? I just threw up in my mouth. I'm shocked.  If that is your assessment, then I guess what was said about Russell means absolutely nothing.

Comment 07 Oct 2014

Amir just isn't that bad either.  He has a role on this team, sometimes he excels and sometimes he doesn't.  Someone else taking his spot, I can buy that, but that is not what was said, he claimed McDonald is that guy, I am sorry but I have to disagree.  McDonald is not that someone coming into his fourth/senior year as a Buckeye.  He has improved steadily as a reserve, but I have not seen anything showing he has the talent to push Amir aside as a starter.

Got it, poor choice of words "throwing up" to describe my reaction to the statement of McDonald starting.

Sorry to make you wait.

Williams, Amir

McDonald, Trey

I know everyone loves to hate on Amir, but he is the best big we got and has been a starter since he was a Soph.  He also improves each and every year.  Maybe not turning out to be the 5 start stud everyone was hoping for, but he is well ahead of McDonald.  McDonald will get his time and play some good minutes.  I also believe Lee is going to play a major role with some time in the middle with a smaller lineup, but I have to hold judgement on that because I have not seen him play.

Comment 07 Oct 2014

I'm sorry, but if McDonald is the best we have, its going to be a long year.  He has gotten better, each and every year.  Played some valuable reserve time last year and has showed much improvement.  I just think predicting McDonald a starter after watching some drills in practice is quite a stretch.
