I need that liquor bottle and the hottie in the red OSU shirt OHIOin with Drew carey...my word.
Lovie Smith (Illinois):
Smith: "It's an exciting time in Champaign."
It's all good.
This young team has played 3 night games on the road, in very hostile environments, and they went 2-1. Not too mention at PSU, the zebras flagged OSU eight times for 45 yards, and PSU ONCE...for 5 yards. AND the Nits pulled our lineman out of the way so the kick-blocker could get in that hole...I don't think that is a legal play, but whatever. Regardless, the Buckeyes would not have been in the position they were in, if they had played up to their potential. I'm not making excuses, just pointing out that this season has been a hard row, and to only have one loss is pretty remarkable really. I doubt many had us with only one loss in the pre-season at the midway point.
Fix the issues, and go dominate.
It should be a good game either way, though. As it should be.
Yep. Tearing them down is a great Buckeye-fan tradition, but they are legit this year. Most here are die hard Buckeye fans, so we all know The Game is a one-game season... previous opponents, common-opponents, how much we scored, and W-L record are null and void.
The Game is not referred to the greatest rivalry (except in Alabama) in all of sports for nothing, And the fact that we have owned them for a decade is only fueling their desire. I truly hope the Buckeyes right the ship win out, and somebody beats PSU, so we can play them for all the marbles (assuming they don't lose of course).
So hard to pin any majority of blame on JT, when as you point out, he has been consistent & provided great leader ship regardless of results. The O-Line & 3 decent defenses are a big part of the overall offensive regression. They need to get better, and I think they will.
I'll compromise, and say "Stock Steady".
Collins is legit.
Jim Harbaugh faked a punt up 34 on Illinois, and I pray Blue is 11-0 this year with a Big Ten title on the line in Columbus.
I'm sure this is an excellent Skully, but this is all I needed to see.
Go Bucks. Win the damn Game.
Kyle: The constant rotation of six or more receivers isn’t helping, as I think there are players in that group that should be seeing the field more than others.
Exactly. Similar problem last year with Samuel/Wilson/Brax at HB, just trying to get everybody playing time has proven not to work. We need three starters, and everybody else fills in effectively as needed. Perhaps no one has truly separated themselves in that group, but since Brown caught 4 TD's in Oklahoma, I find that hard to believe. Good problems to have I suppose, but I would prefer that the "good" problem be that of the opposing defense, rather than our own offensive tempo.
Regardless, GO BUCKS!
I don't have any money in the bank, but I'll live that homeless life—starting tomorrow—for 10 years if it means Michigan never winning a national title.
I will happily live in the box next door....
If the skunks can drop 326 rushing yards with their MAC attack, then we should be able to crack 400...
Go Bucks, erase the
Awesome, great to see yet another Buckeye winning a championship!
Their defense is better than last year. It is also almost completely comprised of seniors (starters). They have not faced an elite offense yet, but did better than we did with Wisconsin. So, I'm not sure they have peaked, but I would say they are closer to playing at the top of their abilities than the Buckeyes.
Offensively, I think they have peaked.
Who gives a f*ck.
Beat Blue. Forever.

And shushing the White Out...again.
If you can dodge a Bosa...
I think...we will win.
Have to agree with you, and this is verified by my U
M buddies who haven't said boo this year, after running their mouths all last year about how we hadn't played anybody.
Thanks for bringing back the W from Wisconsin sir.
As much as we all want to see Barrett & Zone 6 get going full-tilt, do you think the Buckeyes go run heavy on the Nit's 103rd ranked rush defense? I mean, if U
M's average attack can drop 300+ on them, then imagine what Sam-Web & Barrett can do??
For sure, Bama exposed them last weekend imo.
Agreed in total. UM's defense is definitely legit, and so far, statistically speaking, better than ours against common opponents. However, the Buckeyes offense is on a different level than than the skunks. We had 100 yards more offense v. Wisky than UM, and most of that was in one half of football. They are ripping off big rushing performances against bullshit defenses (except Wisky), so I think our defense will give them plenty of trouble.November 26th is going to come down to who makes fewer mistakes & who has the ball last. UM has to play one tough game on the road this year, and that may come back to haunt them...not to mention they haven't played a ranked team yet, although Colorado probably should be in the Top 25. All that being said, glad the game in the Horseshoe.
I really thought we would stomp Wisconsin a little better than we did, so I'm not going to take the Nits at home under the lights for granted. Hopefully they stack the box and make their inexperienced QB try to sling it...need to get that PSU pick-6 tradition started again...are you listening Mr Hooker??
But he only charges himself $20...
