Beating Michigan, now a tier-two team, is the new norm.     - Ouch

Comment 03 Aug 2015

Being a Buckeye stuck in the middle of Sooner country, I hear about "The Kick" all the time.  It is always funny to me how they don't remember us coming down to Norman a few years later and beating then #2 Oklahoma 24-14. 

The temperature on the Owen Field turf reached 135-degrees before the game, but from the start, it was the Ohio State line that dominated. In the opening quarter, Buckeyes' junior quarterback Mike Tomczak completed his first two throws to run his string to 12 completions in a row to tie a school record. He then passed 16 yards to senior All-Big Ten tight end John Frank, Jewish but still playing on Yom Kippur, for a touchdown, and then the pair hooked up again from 15 yards out just four minutes into the second period, and with Rich Spangler's two extra points, Ohio State jumped out to a 14-0 lead.

The Sooners lost start sophomore running back Marcus Dupree, who had gained only 30 yards on six carries and had a costly turnover, with about nine minutes left until halftime when he bruised his knee. A bit later, freshman back Spencer Tillman scored on a 37-yard run, and Tim Lashar's extra point cut the Ohio State lead in half, 14-7.

The Buckeyes opened the second half and drove 57 yards down the field, capped by senior fullback Vaughn Broadnax's two-yard run, which put the visitors ahead 21-7. It stayed that way until late in the period, when Oklahoma junior quarterback Danny Bradley connected with freshman split end Derrick Shepard on a 22-yard touchdown pass, and Lasher's kick pulled the Sooners back to within seven, 21-14.

However, that was as close as Oklahoma was to get, and Spangler kicked a 21-yard field goal to increase the lead to 24-14 with 9:15 to play. It also closed out the scoring, and the Buckeyes pulled the upset. It was their 17th straight win in a road opener, and it also denied Switzer his milestone 100th victory.

First of all, if you are going to this next year when we are preparing to threepeat, please put out the reasons we won't article first.  It just flows better that way.

Secondly, E+R=O :   Repeating is not easy and Injuries reasons.  E+R=O.  It is what they teach, it is what they preach.  It is how we avoid any pitfalls relating to injuries and Events that are out of our control.  As far as complacency, The Grind, Urban Meyer, nuff said! 

For these reasons, I believe your reasons are null and void. 

Go Buckeyes!

I'm thinking Rutgers.  For all the reasons listed above.  I would say Illinois but after the bye week I believe that Meyer will have the team in beast mode for the push through the playoffs.  Let's face it, the playoffs for us start in November.  Fine tuning the first half and then let the onslaught begin.  5 games against top level competition, win or go home!   (MSU, ttun, B1G Champ, Semi, Final)

He's never had a season with less than 20 wins!   I'm leaving it up to Matta!   Can't wait to see what he comes up with for a starting five and how he decides to use his bench!
