I'll be there. Been waiting ever since they announced Rutgers was joining the B1G to see the Buckeyes here in NJ.
The Dline as a whole steps up and wins us this game. VT is replacing 3 starters along their offensive line from last year. That does not bode well for them, add in Washington the beast, Schutt who will finally come through, and a horde of young, talented, albeit game experience lacking DEs that will all be looking to make their stamp.
Exactly what I was thinking. I'm hoping he brings a little extra because of that. We will need it.
I wouldn't compare you guys to them but with its proximity and national relevance more than 8-10k Buckeye fans will be there. OSU is considered one of the largest and most widespread fan bases in all of college football. You literally don't realize what a national championship can do to energize a fan base since VT has never won one.
I was going to say something... What was it?.. Oh yeah -->
It's only a five hour drive from Columbus to Blacksburg. OSU travels well. They will take that place over, especially after coming off a National Championship.
IF, I'm not sure which player left on the D I would actually feel comfortable losing now that Bosa is out. Washington and Apple would probably be the most devastating with the amount of experience surrounding those positions and the least devastating would be Powell I guess (Smith).
Might as well come out and give name, initials or something. If what you say is true then there is no way the guy is playing vs VT.
Great for recruiting and at this point anything OSU football I can get I will take.
Towards the end when Zeke is running the 85 harder to the house you can see Brutus at the end with the Ohio flag. It was the most Ohio thing I've ever seen and it was amazing.
There is playing time to be earned. This will make the starters and backups push even harder this camp I believe than if there had been no suspensions. The backups are all wanting to steal a starting spot and shine while on national TV and the starters will have to work twice as hard to earn the spot back after the game and make it up to the coaches. Dixon got on the field as a true freshman before getting hurt, I really hope he plays a majority of the game
What is the status of the VT Oline this year? With the depth at skill positions the biggest hurdle will be the the loss of Bosa. If they have an unproven line though that will only help our young, highly rated guys from tearing it up that day.
Wow, this is going to be such an emotional game I can't wait.
Surprisingly this makes me feel better
You are so much better than them.
I think the chrome helmets are great. Not every game but every once in a while. I also think the majority of our high ranked recruiting classes like them as well so yeah, worth it.
Same. Nothing in recruiting is concrete but at least staying in the current year keeps it a little more stable.
Noah Brown too.
That's why 11w is so great.
My head exploded.
The telephone game has begun. http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Board/120/Contents/from-11w-poster-names-names-on-suspended-players-38437843
I guess time will tell if you know something or if you are just full of shit.
Oh shit you are right! I can't believe I forgot that.
