New format doesn't seem to a show TV info, unless I'm missing it.
When it was 47-35, was that not "within two touchdowns"?
It is splitting hairs, but the defense gave up 28 points. 1 TD was a punt return. Second paragraph is technically wrong.
I flew in to CMH from Jersey on Friday afternoon and Noah was on my plane! I am glad he had as good a time at the game as I did!
Still waiting for them to do this to a ski helmet...
SO I CAN BUY IT.
Well my head did not explode. I've followed Cornell lax to some degree since the day I was accepted, and even though half of me was pulling for tOSU and was sad it wasn't a closer day, I was proud of the team and the huge strides that have been made that now allow me to follow them on the national stage as closely as I do Cornell. I hope both schools can continue their national relevance, and each year i'll be praying for a tOSU-Cornell championship game.
....And my head explodes...
Why would you lock your doors?
Is Matta the worst end-of-game coach or is it just me?
With less traditional offenses and quarterbacks finding success in the NFL, anyone feel bad for Troy? Like maybe Russell Wilson is having the career he was supposed to have?
and he keeps his job because...he didnt fall off a scooter with her?
Ummm, why is this not on TV? BTN is showing a replay of the spellbinding Wisconsin/Indiana game and espn is showing ATP tennis.

Coincidentally, that is the only good piece of announcing in the history of Beth Mowins.
It was amazing how much better Sabino and Shazier looked against a pro style offense.
Someone explain what Raven Riley has to do with this...
You guys are making too much of this. It was good to have a game like this but still havea win.
To me it was pretty simple. There was no problem with coaching, scheme, or even motivation here. Tackling on defense was a huge issue. Drops by receivers on offense were similar. Those are things than cannot, and often do not, continue. The tackling problems got worse as the game went on, partially because the drops and lack of drives by the offense resulted in the D being on the field a lot. If we tackle and don't drop passes, we cover the spread without issue, even if their kicker didn't have a horrible day.

"Granted, we're merely two games into the Meyer era and two-game trends are the chum that statistical anomalies feast upon."
I was at the game Saturday and it was my first since 2005. We sat in the first row of C deck, Section 23, around the 40 yard line. Next to me were a couple undergrads. We were loud, and on the first couple 3rd downs we stood up to really project our voices.
There was a group of old fogie season ticket holders behind us, as well as a couple that appeared to be undergrad age.
I am not sure when it happened, but at some point, the couple that was in there early 20s started to yell at the undergrands seated next to me that they should "sit the F down." They actually got into an argument that got pretty heated. I couldn't believe it. Fans of the same age from the same team arguing because one set of them wanted to stand up and yell loudly on key plays. I of course came to the defense of the yellers. "You can stand up too!" "Buy tickets in the first row next time." "Move your head 6 inches to the side." That subdued them for a bit, but they got into the game again later and this time the fogies joined them and they were all yelling at the undergrads in our row to STFU and sit down. Why they didn't yell at us too, I do not know; maybe because we were older? We argued back, more vocally this time, but it was weird and there was tension after that point.
Of course thereafter we felt like idiots if we stood. We wound up half standing, half sitting for most of the key plays. It was awkward. But they didn't say much more after I started heckling Braxton to "sit down because I can't see Linsley hike the ball if you are standing there" and heckling the cheerleaders to "stop trying so hard and sit down, you are getting the crowd all riled up!"
All that being said, the Shoe was very quiet. Maybe if these asshats could get as worked up over the game as they do over the people cheering on the Buckeyes vocally and physically, we'd be on to something.
