  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

Maybe it's been said, but if you do the reverse analysis (OSU's D versus PSU's O) I wonder what the result would be?  I think the edge, then, goes to OSU's D.  PSU has a pitiful offense, and hasn't faced that great of competition (as already illustrated).  And it's still ranked low.  However, our D is ranked fairly high - good competition or not.  In the end, I think PSU's weak O-line gives way to our D-line and they don't score much.

It will still be something to keep an eye on - how well we can move the ball and score.  I still remember dropping 63 on them last year.  I highly doubt their D has improved that drasticly since then.

White outs usually go real well in Happy Valley.

What the hell is even painted on the middle guy's face?  It looks like one of those puppy-sized spiders splatted on him.

Agreed that a hostile crowd (even if only for a quarter) is a good thing for J.T. To experience.  Disagree with any notions that PSU D will contain us much.  We scored 63 last year folks.  We are as good or better now.

Yeh, but allow me to help you feel better.  He only had to prepare for Braxton and Hyde last year, essentially.  And we stull put up 30 or 40 points on them.  Who's he going to focus on now?

The only logical answer is to go after J.T.  The box will be stacked, and blitzes will be coming.  I think the coaches know that's coming.  I think we've seen enough varied playcalling to be reasonably confident we will have a plan to still get the ball to our guys.

We really could have used the Florida St./ND game to be decided by a much bigger margin.  ND only dropped a tiny bit, now THEY may need to lose another game (which could certainly happen).  Just one other name in the pot that might actually get CREDIT for losing a close game on the road to a top 5 team (and defending champs).

I personally would not like to see Oregon win out.  They'd almost certainly be in the playoff, which obviously takes up one of our spots.  MSU won't suddenly lose credit or drop in polls if Oregon loses another game.

Comment 17 Oct 2014

Those two games were epic.  I was worried about both, and we showed up and just pummeled them.  Especially PSU.  Our 3rd stringers were rattling off huge runs at the end of the PSU game and it really looked like we had broken their will completely.  They couldn't have tackled me if I was carrying the ball.

Comment 17 Oct 2014

Agreed Hodge.  In fact, it perfectly applies to the Buckeyes this season.  It would take a monumental turnaround and show of improvement for the team that played VA Tech to be "playoff worthy," but that's exactly what we'll have  if we beat Sparty and win out.

And I couldn't have said it better - teams shouldn't be judged specifically on when they lose aside from when a team loses early and clearly improves.

Why does this Carroo guy have any reason to feel like "Ohio State still doesn't respect us"?

Go ahead and manufacture some bulletin board material for yourself, son.

Cleveland IS a factory of sadness, after all....

Comment 15 Oct 2014

I was the loud a-hole in my section for the Cincy game.  Finally, on a critical 3rd down when Cincy was getting close, I convinced my section to stand up and yell.  Not so much for the rest of the game though.  The Shoe can be loud, it really can.  But it takes a special game, I 'spose..

Nice.  Noise or no noise (there was some), we stomped them ultimately.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Great point.  It physically HURT to watch the TTUN vs. PSU game last weekend.  Neither team could move the ball to save their lives.  Each team's defense looked stellar as a result of awful O-lines.
