Like a lot of others on here have said I think the Buckeyes need a fast start.  Come out with their foot on the gas and don't let up.  We need a couple of early successes on offense to get their confidence going.

Living in the south it's very tempting to troll the many Bama fans around here but I prefer to have the quiet confidence of a Buckeye win that gets me through the day.  The downside of having that confidence is it makes it seem like the game is still a month away so I need to find some distractions to help pass the time.  I have a friend that's a diehard Bama fan and is usually very obnoxious about his team but since he found out they play the Buckeyes he has been unusually quiet.  I think he knows that they're headed for a buzzsaw but he just can't get himself to admit it.

I share your confidence but I'm not one to spout it off to others (and I'm not saying that you are).  Last year I had a bad feeling all year long that we were going to drop a game or two because we had some weaknesses.  This year I had a bit of concern with the run defense but I'm not at all worried about it now and I think we win comfortably against Bama.  Not a blow out by any means but not a real close game either.  Oh, and let me repeat myself, Marshall & the TE's are going to he heavily utilized in our win on New Year's Day.

Further proof that the ability to downvote forum topics needs to be resurrected.  We could have ended this one a long time ago.

I was wondering this while reading the article.  Does anyone think Urban has talked to Mullen about Bama's weaknesses & how to exploit them?  I remember Urban saying he calls the coaches of previous opponents to ask if they picked up on any of the Buckeyes' tendencies so I'm curious if he would also call the coaches of the teams that have played Bama.  Knowing that he's very detail oriented I'm guessing that he does.

I think this comes down to our Oline vs. Bama's Dline.  If our Oline gives Cardale enough time to go through his progressions we win because we have too many weapons to cover for a long period of time.  If CJ gets pressured and has to dump the ball off quick then I think Bama pulls out the win.  Having said that, I have complete confidence in our Oline because they have been practicing against a great Dline all season.

I absolutely agree.  I've been saying for a while now that the lack of use of Marshall & the TE's the last 2-3 weeks of the season were intentional so the bowl or playoff opponent wouldn't be game-planning for them.  I think we're going to see a large dose of both.

That reminds me of something similar that we did to a Bama alum at work.  We rigged his computer so that any time he did anything it started playing Rocky Top.  Drove him nuts but we left it like that until the Boss made us stop it.  Great fun trolling Bama fans,

Living in the South I know many Bama fans but I'll only mention 2 of them.

The first is a loud-mouth, obnoxious, homer type that's always spouting off about the Tide.  I had the pleasure of being the first to tell him that his Tide was playing the Buckeyes in the playoff.  He was unusually quiet and hasn't said anything about the game or the Tide to me since then.  I think he knows, deep down, that Bama could be in for a dogfight.

The second fan is an alum of Alabama and obviously a huge fan.  He acknowledges that the Buckeyes totally dominated Wisky in the BCG and is aware of CJ's size but he can't take off his Crimson colored glasses long enough to even consider that the Buckeyes could beat them.  He just goes on and on about their D Line, Cooper, etc.  Anything he acknowledges that's good about the Buckeyes is always followed by "yeah, but".  He thinks the Buckeyes are good but he also thinks Bama will dominate them.
