Cardale, you're up! Don't go out there to be JT or Braxton. Be yourself, and work hard with your brothers this week.
This clip needs to make the annual highlight reel.
Mike, the pleasure has been all ours, and going back to your days playing at Centerville in the Miami Valley. You have been a model Buckeye for the next generation of Buckeyes.
In our prayers today...
Nice write up. What concerns me most is _ichigan coming out and playing assignment, mistake free football and the Bucks keeping them in it by making some of the mistakes made over the past couple of weeks -- namely, turnovers and over pursuit. However, if the Bucks bring the focus to play each of their respective positions and limit mistakes, I have no doubt we will punish them and snowball into a blowout.
Awesome story, Alatbuck. My son was born in 2001 and I can't tell you how proud I was as a new father to watch the beatdown of _ichigan that year with him in my arms. He, of course, was dressed as a Buckeye from day one. The night of the 2002 NCG, he stayed up past midnight running around yelling 'Go Bucks!' We tried getting him to sleep, but no way with the people in our house watching that game.
Fast forward to this year... I get to take him to his very first _ichigan-Ohio State game this Saturday. To boot, Troy was his very first Buckeyes hero, so he will get to see his number enshrined (which my son now wears for football). He is sooo pumped! So am I, and I'm getting emotional here and now thinking about it.
Very thankful on this Thanksgiving. Let's go kick the sh*t out of _ichigan! GO BUCKS!!!
You're right. Thinking more about it, '04 and '05 was more retribution feeling really, REALLY good for the hell endured during the '90s.
Frankly, '04 and '05 were the years that _ichigan curse during the Coop years was excorcised. Tress and Troy showed that we could win as underdogs in '04 and then go into Ann Arbor and win consistently there. Damn! I can't describe how good it feels to be a Buckeye. Thankful for Tress and Troy.
Great to see The Ohio State University starting to get the academic recognition I've known it deserves since I was in school in the early '90s. It's not just the performance demonstrated in the classroom, but it's the environment in Columbus that enables young people with ambition to go after anything they want if they're willing to work hard. It's not a place for everyone, but there are no limits for those with the desire. I love hiring OSU grads, too -- smart people with the solid work ethic to get it done. The Best Damn University In The Land!
Got up this morning and panicked, too. With _ichigan week, I thought is was a subversive plot from those bastards up north. Who knows it could be! All the more reason to hate this week. I'm becoming an angry fan early this week. Hope the Bucks are, too.
Taking my 13 year old son to his very first GAME next week (been waiting for this day since the day he was born). It will be made very clear that we will not be able to hold a conversation by game's end.
Don't care anymore. Just fix the gaps and beat the snot out of _ichigan. What's better than denying them a bowl game?
Never... NEVER... Overlook the _ichigan game. Thirteen years under Cooper scarred a number of us and taught us that. This is THE GAME. Nothing else matters at this point.
Maybe... But I think our LB play needs to step up. Kwon is the future, and has instances of brilliance, but he's only one guy. Need to get the others to step up.
RIP _ichigan... Nix that... ROT IN HELL!! 77-0 this week! GO BUCKS!!
The outcome of this game was NEVER in doubt in my mind. However, the way we got there shocked me frankly. Sloppy taking care of the ball today on offense, with the LBs not plugging the holes for Coleman. Playcalling was an enigma at times, also. I'll chalk up to a letdown week against Indiana -- I'll admit it, I was personally thinking about _ichigan 4x more than IU this week. So not the 'style' I think we needed. Let's focus and fix it. Beat _ichigan!!
