If this was a home game at noon or 3:30, and Wisconsin wasn't borderline top-10 (and could very well actually be top-10 again in two weeks), I'd be more worried.

But it's not. It's a night game, on the road, against a highly ranked opponent in a hostile environment. Yes, their defense has looked great so far, but they haven't seen a team with a scheme or athletes (minus LSU maybe) like ours. We were at one point worried about running the ball on Oklahoma's defensive front, too - we all know how that turned out.

Urban and co. will have these boys ready to play, and a team that is still full of hungry young guns will come out still wanting to prove to the country that they are for real. I see a big road win. Go bucks.

My thoughts exactly. I was glad when I saw IU beat Sparty because A) It'll get the guys attention as to not overlook IU and B) It seriously damages MSU's chances at winning the division, even if they do pull a ridiculous upset or two out of their asses in the coming weeks.

As long as "X" isn't a 2-headed backup quarterback combo in a sleet storm, I still like our chances ;)

Seriously though, I look forward to whatever unfolds on Saturday and hope we have a good contest. Urban and Bob are two of the best - let the chess match begin.

The same guy that claims to know something we don't responded to another comment saying it was something "schematic" ..

Not sure what groundbreaking schematic surprise they could throw our way, but after VT 2 years ago, I have a hard time believing this staff won't be prepared for any schematic related surprises.

Sounds like the fast start continues, 4 Star DT Haskell Garrett from Vegas just committed on Twitter:

Agree 100%. People say it doesn't impact our chances, but we almost certainly don't make the playoff last year if MSU isn't a top ten team when we beat them.

This year may be different since we start the season at the top, but the point still stands. Playing (and beating) ranked teams helps.

Had a feeling that was going to be a Bushman study when I started reading that WSJ snippet. Took a few classes of his back in the day. Man is all over the violence/aggression study game, especially in regards to the effect of violence in video games/media. Pretty interesting stuff.

I have been wanting to get one of those "Ohio's Moon" shirts for a while now.. This may have been the extra push I needed!

Wanna know what to do when you get a bad sunburn? Take a viagra before bed. Won't actually heal anything, but it'll keep the sheets off of you!

Very curious as to how Braxton jumped JT and Cardale. Not because I doubt his ability, but I just find it odd, considering we haven't heard anything to suggest that Braxton is now the favorite to win the job (which is essentially what I take him having the best odds to mean). Makes me think there's something out there that we don't know.

Could just be a Vegas thing that's over my head though.

Comment 01 Jul 2015

Right? Brax is a full-fledged Badger killer. His 3 wins against them, plus the B1G Championship last year have (almost) helped me completely get over the upset they pulled on us Pryor's last year.

+1 for Kanye. Hate the person if you want, but his music is amazing and has been his entire career.

Comment 12 Jun 2015

I think it's childish to call teams/players/coaches nicknames (meatchicken, hairball, etc) - and highly uncreative. 

I also think it's dumb to not refer to Michigan by name. They're not Voldemort.

OH-IO makes me cringe.

And.. I think people here are too reliant on gifs for up votes. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate them in the right context.. But I feel like it's become so overused that it's not funny anymore.

I also hate our fanbase's reflex to cry "anti-osu bias" anytime something even remotely negative about the Buckeyes is published. ESPN has been a 6 month osu circle jerk since the natty, yet no one is complaining about bias now.

Thanks for posting this 3, I hadn't seen it.

This time last year, did anyone have any idea the types of players we had in this sophomore (now junior) class? We all obviously had high hopes, but guys like Zeke, DLee, Vonn, JT - essentially everyone except Bosa - were still mainly unproven guys.

Its crazy to think about the fact that there's another crop of guys like that ready to burst onto the scene like that again this year. Just shows you how valuable a guy like Mick Marotti really is to a team - the transformation he makes with some of these young men is amazing.

So, uh, how many days until the season starts again? Go bucks.

Comment 21 May 2015

I don't think I've ever rooted for a non-buckeye team more than I will for Houston this year. So much respect for Tom, and really pulling for him to have a successful career as a head coach (that eventually leads to him taking over the buckeyes in 2025 after Urban retires with 10 more national championships).

I'm trying not to read into D'Angelo being in Los Angeles, because I want him to come back next year.

This was my first thought as well. Hope he's just out there for a field trip with his class..
