This game really reminded me of the infamous 41:14 Florida Ohio State BCS game, so glad Michigan got to get a taste of that at home with their Harbaugh!
Anyone else around here remember when LSU would not let Miles go to Michigan?
I think PSU will win this game and win it with defense.
Does anyone else remember the JT who questions the day we learned Braxton was injured?
What an amazing time to be a Buckeye!
Dad always described Byars as the second coming of Jim Brown. Dad saw them both play live and was one of those Jim Brown was the the best ever guys, so that was high praise.
The measurement does not matter.. Ohio State and Michigan will sort this head to head!
I'd rather be Joe Burger than Jake Butt
I was at that game, and the Buckeyes were lucky to win. Only one goal post came down; based on that tacky incident felt Buckeye Nations dignity suffered more than Indiana did that day.
But that only really happens when you truck some dude in Seattle, just saying.
Not that there is anything wrong with that....
I feel the same way.
Where does this leave Michigan?
"Misconception and trickery" Its a hell of gambit and they do it very well. They recognize they can't play based on fundamentals, so they don't try. Its exciting to watch when it works, but its hardly robust so when they face a power team, based on fundamental football - LIKE THE BUCKEYES - it collapses in spectacular fashion.
Since their defeat at the hands of Tress, they've made a great effort to get bigger on both sides of the line. They did a better job of being stubborn on the run than I thought, at least at the start, but its not just size they are still a D that needs a lead. Put them down 14, or 17 if their QB is really special, give them bad field position, take plenty of time and watch them burn!
I tried to make this point over at Addicted to Quack before the game, but they would not hear it. It became false equivocation. They felt we were the same team as them as far as speed and set. My point was always the Buckeyes did not get any smaller, and still play up the gut big ten ball, but somehow Urban made them fast as hell. He did not give up any of power when retooling the team.
All doubters can SUCK MY ALABAMA NUTS!
And.. some speedster is going to run into him and learn Bell is made of steel and concrete!
I want to see Bell drop someone so hard they are slow getting into the hurry up!
A fast start from the Dline, and 4 quarter effort from our Oline should just about do it!
I think this Oregon team is better than people give them credit for. Still I think the Bucks will win, and exploit the weaknesses we all see.
Not only would I'd take the starting back at Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota over any of the backs in the Pac 12 this year, but I live on the west coast too!
There is giant TV in the lobby of the building where I work, it often shows ESPN. I had to really control my self when I saw May's sorry a*s mug on the screen today. WHAT A HACK
Mark May - Troll for a Decade - Dbag for Life!
As a Big Ten bigot, I don't think we'll see the same rotation between those three backs you mention they way Oregon has done until now. I think they are going to find one who works through trial and error. Maybe I'll be proven wrong on Monday, but depth at running back from the Pac 12 is not something that ever concerns me outside of USC.
Don't forget Sith always work in pairs.
