As frustrated and angry as I was watching this 2nd half, after calming down a bit, I have gained a little perspective. Sometimes good college football teams struggle, especially on the road. Look at Ole Miss tonight, 7 points scored against an LSU team that has not been world-beaters by any means. Mississippi State struggled to put away a Kentucky team that is a perennial doormat. Yes, the Buckeye offense struggled in the 2nd half. Yes, our O-line continually failed and this lead to our coaches going into a shell. But the D balled out and gave up 10 points in regulation. And those last 3 were assisted by an absolutely atrocious roughing the passer call. They will learn and grow and do their best next week against Illinois and hopefully be ready for Sparty in 2 weeks. I will take this win and enjoy the tears and anguish of Nit fans. Go Bucks!
I believe 2011 is the answer.
If you know your offensive line isn't very good, maybe call some screens or draws or short passes or something quick developing.instead of slow developing deep shots and slow developing option plays every damn down.
Because East/West places OSU and TTUN in same division where they belong.
Don't forget 1994, as much as I hate to admit it, that team was sick and definitely should have at least got a split title.
Your ideas intrigue me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter or pamphlet
Yeah, can't wait to see seasons with mutiple good OOC games again.
What really jumped out at me was the OOC schedule, all BCS conference foes, maybe not the elite, but all decent foes, no Mac and no FCS or other cupcakes.
If it is indeed true that they had no respect for Fickell, maybe because once he took over it was obvoius he was way over his head and was not ready for the big-time spotlight?
If a head coach doesn't wear a headset, he doesn't know most of what is going on. I am looking at you in the past, JoePa and present, Brady the Hutt.
This has to be illlegal, right?
Mine still shows All Flannel Tops with 2 picks and no sacks, 12 PBUs, I don't remember seeing him dominate in coverage quite that much.
Think the defensive stats are a little off, John Simon listed with 0 sacks and 2 interceptions?
I love seeing the bad karma flowing for Auburn after cheating and winning a MNC with NCAA complicity.
Always was but talent made up for it, but without the supernatural talent of Vince Young will never win the big one
They should be melting down. With the talent they can pull in with no effort, they should never lose that badly. Mack is finished.
Just Sparty being Sparty
Just ignorant that he would say that. Braxton is only top 5 in Heisman talk right now.
Brian Griese just said he considers Braxton Miller a RB, not a QB, I'm pretty sure he should be saying that about Detard and not Braxton who already is a much better QB than Brian Griese ever was.
I was there, too and it was pretty sad. Horrible parking design, they couldn't even fill the stadium when dedicating the remodelling and with Buckeye fans providing half the crowd, fans silent even before OSU started to dominate. Just sad.
