I wish I could do with a golf ball what Cam can do with a football. He is a special talent.
I found Chief Moton's wallet...
Reminds me of Jefferson, from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Here's proof:
I remarked to my dad that OSU's win over Wisconsin was perhaps the most complete domination against a quality opponent ever. He calmly reflected on his days as an OSU student when in 1950 against Iowa, OSU won 83-21. Vic Janowicz ran for 2 TDs, threw for 4, kicked all 10 PATs, punted twice for 42 yard average and played safety. He also won the Heisman that year.
I hope my memory is that good when I'm 86!
My dream matchup is OSU v Alabama to avenge and quiet SEC kooks. I think Urban wants this win more than anything else right now. It's very personal.
I also hope that the Criminoles beat Oregon so that we can be the ones to knock them off their pedestal. Don't get me wrong, I hate Felon State University as much as the next person, but I'd rather it be OSU to beat them than Oregon.
If the team and coaches are as focused and hungry as they were against Wisconsin, then I really don't think we will have any problems. Alabama is more balanced than Wisconsin, but I can't see anything being successful against the gang tackling and smothering Silver Bullet defense that is back, baby!
Where can I find a time machine to whisk me to Jan 1 at 8:00PM?!!!
10-point underdogs? Don't the silly fools realize what happens to opponents when OSU is an underdog?
While Alabama is certainly a more balanced team than Wisconsin, it simply won't matter if OSU plays anything close to what they accomplished last night. This is a victory Urban wants very badly. One shouldn't make Urban angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
Looking through many of the comments on less-informed fan sites, I keep seeing VT being brought up as justification (STILL!) against OSU. Oregon showed that they are a different team by beating Arizona and avenging their only loss. Is there a single person (other than Mark May) who thinks OSU would not destroy VT now?
What we witnessed was a beatdown of biblical proportions, but also a hint of the dynasty to come.
One damn fine game!
You could say that Cardale had a Joe Burrow-like game, which only emphasizes the ridiculous talent OSU has at the QB position. (No disrespect to Collier, who probably would have had an awesome game, too).
After looking at Cardale's high school highlights, you realize that he much prefers to stay in the pocket and sling the football. You saw his touch and accuracy with at least 2 balls dropped by the receivers.
What we saw last night is just a teaser for the next several years. Now that we've seen perfection, it will be hard for the players and coaches to accept substandard performances. The team is pushing themselves. Happy to see they got the shutout. It was important.
This wasn't just the most complete game of the Urban Meyer era, it was the most complete game in OSU history. Total domination is every phase and next year, they will be better. I won't delete this from my DVR until I can buy it on DVD. Wikipedia needs to add a link to this game under the definitions of dominate and blowout.
I sort of hope OSU ends up 3rd so they can play Oregon in the Rose Bowl. That would be both traditional and conforming to the framework of the playoff. No team is safe if the Buckeyes play like that again.
280, but I also bet Cardale could throw it over them mountains.
Let's hope Wisconsin's receivers are doing this while Bosa and his teammates sack Stave repeatedly and stop Gordon...
Cardale The Team needs to have a massive chip on his their shoulders and a surly attitudes walking into this game. Wisconsin and the entire media machine does not give the Buckeyes a chance at this point in time and Cardale the team needs to come out and stuff it down their throats!
(fixed it for you)
Better than the LL Cool J song on endless loop in the WHAC!
Campus police may have an armored personnel carrier, but the students have a secret weapon.
Let's have Barrett run for 300 and pass for 300 yards to seal the Heisman. He could get that in just 2 quarters of play if the coaches aren't too conservative.
JT runs much more like a big running back than a QB. Braxton makes you miss but would go down easier once contact was made. JT simply bounces off and keeps trucking, or runs right through arm tackles. It would have been interesting to see how much Braxton improved on his passing in the off season, but JT has proven himself to be an excellent QB. OSU's future is very bright, now that we have a full assortment of other offensive weapons and an improving defense.
Exactly, and all anyone can say is how Alabama has a loss, but is clearly the best team in the world right now. Or how an injury needs to be factored into this other team with a loss. Every excuse under the sun is being used to promote teams above us and while Ohio State has been playing at an amazing level since the 2nd week, all anyone can mention is VT.
Florida State should have at least 2 losses, except for their opponents' boneheaded coaches, who built up leads over FSU, then frittered it away by switching into prevent mode.
The reality this year is that no team has been a dominant force. Ohio State is playing as well as anyone and should be considered, but only after all of the game have been played and the dust has settled. There is still quality football to be played. You just can't cherry pick excuses to use on one team, while ignoring similar excuses for others.
I couldn't help but think I was watching some future Heisman winners, and yes, I meant that as in plural. The Buckeyes are the youngest team among the top-25 and still haven't come close to their full potential. It's staggering to think of how many Freshmen and Sophomores are contributing in big ways with loads more talent coming.
A few not-so-special plays on special teams kept MSU in it far longer than they should have been. This was a dominating performance.
JT does not run like a QB. He runs hard and with attitude, more like a RB.
He definitely throws a beautiful ball and only had a few bad passes. There were several dropsies again by the receivers, otherwise his stats would be even better.
I think you're more likely to be killed in a vending machine accident, if my statistics are correct.
To me, the biggest improvement is in the coaching staff having some trust in their players and not oversimplifying the offensive or defensive playbooks. Playing too hesitantly and being afraid to make mistakes works about as well as the prevent defense does.
This is a young team and the talent level is only going to get better with more of Urban's recruiting classes. The future is bright and a possible dynasty is unfolding before our very eyes.
Still surprised we haven't done better as a kick/punt receiving team, with the speed we have back there and against some supposedly weaker opponents. Have yet to take one to the house.
LOL. In that picture, I was playing Devil's advocate thinking Braxton could be a bike fan, but then I was like, what bike?
