Sorry to sadden you. Just need my statagram. 

Edit:  I'll edit the title to avoid crushing the dreams of others.

Do you even know what a plethora is, Fatpants?

I think the key for the Buckeyes is ball control and clock control. By controlling both, Oregons offense stays on the bench, while ours does work. When their offense is on the field, the defense needs to be disruptive and make early stops, then keep up the pressure throughout the game. In 2012 and 2013, Standord did just that while completely owning the clock. The 2013 game is an amazing example of this. Not only was Stanford D disruptive, but the Cardinal had the ball for over FOURTY minutes in that game. 

This is also illustrates why teams have higher rushing averages against Oregon. They're trying to play ball control. Problem is, their defenses can't stop the ducks offense so they have to abandon the run and pass to try to keep up. 

If we can manage the clock, score when we have the chances, and limit the ducks opportunities to possess the ball, I think we're in good shape.

More offensive, perhaps, but a grossly less defensive league as well.  The only Pac 12 team in the top 50 for total Defense is Stanford at #3.  FSU also not in the top 50.

Great job. Love the song choice. Different feel but just as gritty.

Great post, ATL. A good lesson for all young athletes.

The jersey pictures for $99 on the fanatics website is NOT the official playoff jersey as you can see by the lack of grey on the sleeves. I believe the real playoff jersey with grey stripes on the sleeve is $125.
