Yes, it's a revenge game. Yes, the Buckeyes will be favored because, well, they're the reining National Champ. However let's not forget MANY including myself (drunk as hell sitting in 30A with my drunk HS buddy) thought there'd be no worries at all last year in The Shoe. Then we got embarrassed.
To think that Beamer and Foster are just going to attempt to employ the same type of game plan (Bear D) next year is ridiculous and naive way of thinking. A night game in Blacksburg will not be a cake walk, nor should it be a game not to be worried about at all. Their Defense will be just as good last year (if not better). Their offense, well the jury is still out on that. So IF OSU is to blow them out of the water in their own backyard, then that sure will give a heavy indication to how the season will go for OSU ;)
Let him go...The Cavs could free up SO much and get more if he leaves.
Best part of this Braxton suit picture is...the Alabama fan behind him thinking (Damn...he sure would be better than any QB we have currently have on roster right now. Or is he thinking, those suits aren't nearly as nice as Bama's because we all know ours are top of the line, and of course, not any type of NCAA violation...of course.)
Not to mention the Walmart "Team Rollback" shirt he has on...WOW!
Or is he checking out Braxton's ass??? Who knows?
Ouch...that still stings to be quite honest. I was watching that game 7 in my dorm room as a Junior, doing some things I won't mention at the time;) That hit up the middle by Renteria off Mesa haunts me to this day.
If the Tatgate situation didn't happen, Ohio State wins the title in 2010.
I don't think OSU beats Wisky in 2010 without Tatgate transpiring for this reason...Wisky had our number then. I'm not so sure about that comment...lots of speculation without much real representation of fact. (Not to mention, the fallout from Tatgate didn't really hit until after the season...hence the reason Tress covered it up during the season to attempt to win the NC, which failed, miserably in fact.)
I'd say late second or early third IF he has a break out season. If Bell continues to have the INTs and big plays, then that may overshadow Powell's performances. I have to agree with Mobboss above. I just now saw what he/she wrote;)
It's great, as a team, to have aspects to improve upon. These stats are wonderful and do need improvement, but I have a feeling it will all start up front. This years team will only go as far as the Offense and Defensive lines take them. If they struggle, then OSU's entire year will be tough (ala Va Tech for instance).
I'm not shocked...Jim is trying to motivate his team. Like Urban and calling the offense a clown show in April of 2012. I wouldn't call it a trap, but I would refer to it as a sub-par psychological motivational tool that I think it will backfire.
I have a feeling OSU basketball will be in the hunt for run in the tourney with all those incoming freshmen. I see Thompson in the projected line up above but don't sleep on Giddens making an impact as well.
Send me back to 1910 Columbus right now!!!! (I'd shout this until I got there and then realize I've made a massive, massive mistake when there's no internet.)
You would also be saying, "Oh Shit!" when you realized that this was a time when TTUN actually had something to brag about with beating OSU on an annual basis. You might recall this is the time period that most, if not all TTUN fans still revel in (besides the 90s). Keep that in mind too, DJ. ;)
This is a wonderful story and touching to boot.
However as the OP put it, I've had the tribe as my second adopted team since 2000. I tend to watch the Tigers more. They have an actual pay roll and try (operative word being try) to keep the good players around. I know they're up North but I can't take watching the Tribe anymore. It's kind of like the Browns for me...what's the point in tuning in?
I can't wait to post this article to FB and tag several friends who live in the South (when I get home from work). That way they can post it and tag all their little friends that are SEC fans so they can revel in this masterpiece. I saw little Nicky said something along these lines the other day and knew Ramzy would have something to say...and say it he did ;)
Please excuse this and don't put me in the new 11W jail, but....FUCK THE SEC!
That's too fat...I mean bad...
I'm SO glad you put in those loses for MSU in 2013 and Va Tech from 2014. Many, and I mean MANY individuals don't understand that as a team, you can learn so much about yourselves after a loss. (players and coaches) I have a huge feeling without the Va Tech loss, the 2014 National Championship may or may not have happened. Thanks for adding those in and not putting in the Minnesota snow and 15 degree game, despite it's intense feeling. I feel the team learned more from the loses than the other games that "could" have been added.
He could have dunked that from the foul line...if he wanted to. Just imagine how good the Cavs will be if they are all healthy next year. If they beat the Warriors without Love, wow is all I can say. They've already done better than I thought they would once Love hurt his shoulder.
I voted yes, but it's contingent on the other WRs contributions. If Johnny Dixon and the host of others don't produce, then I believe Thomas will get most yards of the WRs. Lots of big IFs right now concerning who will be Devin's replacement in the deep ball department. I believe it will be Johnny, Terry, or Paris. (possibly C.Smith but he has to catch ALL the deep balls and not fumble them after the catch either) The deep ball threat WR could affect how many yards Thomas may have as well.
I see your point, but isn't this thread about tSEC scheduling and not about OSU and how tB1G schedules...???
If it had a title that read, "Does OSU need to beef up the schedule?" Then I'd be on here commenting about that too and how it does need to be better. However it's more the point that one of those 3 teams you mentioned is MUCH better than who the SEC teams are playing (N.I.U won the MAC for what it's worth) . Either way, I'm not a big fan of the "mighty" SEC's scheduling. They sure don't play the likes of MSU before their rivalry game like say the Iron Bowl...was all my point was about (or in OSU's case, so called rivalry game).
YES^^^Thank you B-PHI!
