I was most worried about this game all season.  In my mailbag question I said getting the team back up for the second week for a night game on back to back weeks against a team off a bye week would be difficult

It proved true as the guys just looked tired last night 

Comment 22 Oct 2016

I'm good with everyone saying they are unbeatable.  Plenty of material for the other teams to punch them in the mouth 

Comment 18 Oct 2016

How does Meyer get the team back up from an emotional win on the road in OT to go to another hostile environment where you are playing a team who had a bye week again and puts everything into this week?  Night game on road to night game on road is not common in todays CFB landscape, especially with both opponents having bye weeks the week before

No No No...8 SEC TEAMS.  7 is for other conferences.

Bama, A&M, Tennessee, Arky, LSU, Ole Miss, Auburn, Florida.  None of them are good aside from Bama and maybe A&M.  Half of the 15-25 range just to keep those CBS ratings up.

I'm surprised Penn State isn't even receiving votes.  They have started to put some stuff together the last few weeks.  Have accomplished as much as some of those SEC 20-25 teams

I mean this game doesn't matter one lick for the playoffs really.  If OSU were to lose by 20, then win out, beat either Nebraska or Wisky in the B1G title game, they will be a 12-1 team from a good conference and get in.

Same goes for Bama this week in their game 

Comment 11 Oct 2016

Can OSU win the B1G playing Tresselball this year?  People are worrying about the passing game, but isn't there a chance that our run game is good enough to win the whole thing if we have our defense playing well and Cam punting the ball and giving the D great field position (which leads to the O having great field position)

Comment 10 Oct 2016

I mean our offense usually USUALLY does a good job of getting a few first downs and letting OSU win field position.  When OSU wins field position, it is difficult to drive the field against our D.  They give some first downs up, but it's hard to string a drive together to score points

5* predictions remaining.  Rivals has us potentially getting all 3 based on the "predictions" sentence 

Comment 04 Oct 2016

They indicate that these are not really weaknesses but the worst at what a good team does.  

Can OSU pass the ball?  I mean 150 yards and 4 TDs against OU in basically 2 1/2 quarters is pretty good.  The numbers don't scream out great because OSU doesn't need to throw the ball.  

Big runs? OSU has short fields often due to good defense and turnovers.  Samuel's run against OU would have been for 90 yards if it was on 3rd down at the 10 yard line

The pass rush looked good last week and contained well against Mayfield.  Do I wish we have Joey Bosa another year with Spence back from the NFL? Hell yea

Young team - Bama was one of the youngest teams last year and OSU was in 2014

Comment 03 Oct 2016

He didn't get hit on that play...he just made a bad read.  It isn't about unsettling Barrett, it's about letting him know he can't be careless with the ball ever. There isn't a QB controversy no matter what, but you don't want Barrett knowing he can throw INTs and that is acceptable.

Comment 03 Oct 2016

The series below, Barrett is in the game as seen by the incompletion on 2nd and 4.  This ball is in a Rutgers' defenders hands and he drops it.  Next play, IN THE MIDDLE OF A DRIVE, Burrow came in and handed off

2nd and 4 at RUTG 23


3rd and 4 at RUTG 23


4th and 1 at RUTG 20


Comment 03 Oct 2016

Bama won the NCG last year after a great game by Coker.  Kiffin has done a great job at Bama of getting guys to perform well in the big games on offense.  

Comment 03 Oct 2016

I am a huge JT supporter but his 17/2 ratio is a bit misleading.  He has thrown 3-4 more balls there were in defensive players hands and dropped.  It got him pulled in the game Saturday

Comment 02 Oct 2016

We get vanilla in the second half and run the ball.  People complained about it after the OU game too...only 150 yards and 4tds

Comment 30 Sep 2016

I agree, but think OSU is less dependent on one player.  They have proven they can win big games without Barrett

I generally agree however 

Comment 30 Sep 2016

Yes, other had to do their jobs, but Jackson is the spoon that stirs the drink.  Their offense is dynamic because Jackson is there.  If he's not there, the RB doesn't get his yards as easily, the WR's don't get 1 on 1 coverage to make those plays, and the defense doesn't get onto the field at the opponents 10 every drive, making it easier to stop points being scored.
