Thanks Tim, did you draw the short-straw for staff member who had to write this piece? 

All I know is he has definitely lived up to the hype thus far, and completely created an optimistic, luminescence of nuclear proportions among the UM faithful. The obvious cherry-on-top for this season is beating OSU, so that cannot happen!

Hopefully the Buckeyes come out like " superfly TNT and the guns of the Navarone" on Saturday, and put things back in order.

GO BUCKS! Beat Team Khaki!

Sparty is the better team, but they have been escaping tight spots all year, and I'm not sure how good they really are. I doubt they blow it at home, but I think Penn State has a better shot at winning than most people think, especially if Cook doesn't play, or misses any significant time.

Obviously I won't DV you for an honest opinion, but I can't in good conscience UV you either, since you're predicting an OSU loss (bad mojo). Disagree as well. I wouldn't say their offense isn't any better than IU or Minnesota, and we handled them pretty well. Butt might get a few plays here & there, but I bet Lee shadows that cat the whole game. The key will be exploiting their over aggressive defense, and then scoring one more point.

Go Bucks!

"It’s always big to be a part of the first of something, but we still have a mission."

Exactly. Start of a new era of dominance over yet another TTUN coach, and continuing the 2015 mission of repeating as National Champions. Until they lose, that mission is still active.

GO BUCKS! Beat Blue!

Go Bucks. Beat Blue.

Happy Thanksgiving & I give eternal thanks for 11W and all of the talented staff therein.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

I am assuming that the coaching staff will point out that Sparty held UM's offense to 230 total yards of O, on a day devoid of any inclement weather. Connor Cook torched their vaunted secondaryfor 328 yards, but they just couldn't get it done in the RZ (1-TD pass). 

We played bad last Saturday, and Sparty definitely dropped a defensive gem on us, and I'm not going to make excuses when they deserve credit. However, when you cannot pass the ball at all, and the weather is a complete disaster, it's going to be real hard to run on that defense when they're expecting it. I'll completely neglect the play-calling aspect since it has been bludgeoned beyond recognition, and I am optimistic that will not happen this week. UM has a good defense, but they're front seven are not as good as Spartys'. There is ABSOLUTLEY no reason that we can't move the ball on UM's defense when teams like IU & Minnesota have done so with ease. And neither of those teams have a defense like ours.

I expect Urban to make this one personal, and throw the kitchen sink at their defense. If we can muster up an early scoring drive, then the whole team can build upon that confidence.

Santa comes early....Go Bucks!

I fully expect Sparty to beat Penn State. However, if the Nits O-line can somehow protect the QB, he could definitely exploit that secondary. The secondary that gave up 200 yards & 3 TD's to Rutger's Chris Laviano. Actually typing that just made me mad about last Saturday all over again. Anyway, just because we didn't get it done, doesn't change the fact that many others did this season. And PSU has a damn good RB & an above average defense.

And none of that matters if we don't win, so the Buckeyes need to play fast, angry, and with the sole purpose of ending UM's special season on Saturday.

Unless JT is injured, or is abducted by the ghost of Bo, we don't need to see Cardale. Not sure which QB gives us the best chance to win, and I'm pretty sure the coaches don't either, so stick with the commitment & go win the fucking game!

Go Bucks! Beat those PissPants Wearing Skunkbitches!

Comment 25 Nov 2015

Hopefully this is just early season hiccups from a young squad, but the last two-games were just sloppy, street-ball basketball. They have not learned to play as a team on offense or D. Maybe they will...maybe they won't. Prophetic, I know.

Regardless, LA Tech is a decent team. I bet they make some noise this year.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

They need to take a lesson from the 2007 scenario, when everybody in front of them lost on the last couple of weekends, and we ended up playing a 2-loss LSU team for the title. Odds are even better since they just need to crack the top-4! Lot to get straightened out, but none of it matters if they don't win Saturday.


Comment 24 Nov 2015

I agree with Coach, if they knew how to completely fix "it", that would have happened by now. The offense can move the ball against TTUN, but it will be limited by their staunch D. Our own defense is going to have to play lights out & probably score to put this one in the W column. Have to trust UFM that he & the coaches will look at film of the opponents who have had some success v. UM, and incorporate a variation into Saturday's game plan.

Go Bucks! Get it done.

Comment 24 Nov 2015

Yes, it will be interesting to see if they can prevent making the same mistakes from Friday's game. I watched some of the Memphis/UT Arlington game last night, and they looked good again. If Tech beat those guys by 12, then the Bucks better bring their A+ game tonight.

Go Bucks!

Comment 24 Nov 2015

The optimist in me has trumped my conventional self, and I believe that last Saturday was some inexplicable anomaly, parts tenacious, sell-out Sparty defense, bad play calling & weather, none of which will be present this week in Stankville, MI.

Get back to what you do best Buckeyes...beating everyone.

GO BUCKS! Beat Michigan!

Comment 24 Nov 2015

How involved will Coach Meyer be in the offensive play calling this Saturday? Or more to the point, do you think he will call 100% of the plays? OR will it be more of a fluid thing, depending upon how the game is flowing?
