Comment 02 Aug 2014

Good coaches and players always agree....hard to forget losings.  It is what drives them. The competition and striving to win.  What did he expect for him to say? "Whew, I am so very glad we lost?"  Notice the comments Miller made about playing MSU this year.  You can tell by the expression on his face....he wants to kick their @ss!  As we all do!

January 10, 2010. On purpose! I got a keeper!  Great month.  Beating Oregon then all went well for the wedding.  Ice storm was supposed to him but didn't.

The good is I have had relatives who were "in" weddings and I got good tickets as a result. Latest....Wisconsin at night in C-bus 2013! Silver linings    0*-)

I like how tOSU OL has been playing as well.  They seem to wear down their foes as the games go along.  Hope to see the TE get involved in passing game as well.

 

Thanks Ross enjoyed the article.

 

I was expecting "How does Badger defense match up with Buckeye offense?"  But I guess that would be a one word article...POORLY!  LOL

 

Comment 13 Nov 2012

Ross would you match up Roby or Howard on Abbrederis?  How would you defend the jet sweep? 

I thought Howard could do the job.  I thought moving Barnett and Roby up closer to the line for jet sweeps and hopefully get a couple of picks.  I would put Williams on Pedersen. fyi  Phillips is 11-19 106 yards 1 td and 1 int for his career. (edit)So is getting to him the key?

Wisconsin's defense seems to get tired as the games go along.  Well the tougher games  Utah St, MSU and Nebraska. Badger defense is very average imo.  Good LBers and Smith CB is ok.  But DL and S are very suspect.

I see the game going like this  10-10 end of 1st Q, 24-10 at half ,31-17 at end of 3Q and finish 41-20. 

  Am I way off?  Thoughts?

Comment 12 Nov 2012

Glad 2 have him back!  Even if he plays 1/2 of the snaps his experience should help tOSU get after those Badgers!

Comment 09 Nov 2012

Great read Ross.

 

I think Simon is MVP for the leadership and show of toughness he brought the team.  Hankins, Williams, Shazier and Roby could make a case as well.

Boren is amazing.  Hard to believe he has just a few games under his belt.  He is a football player.  Kudos to him.

 

Hard to tell how good Buckeyes were.  IL proving how bad they are every week.  Offensively they are just terrible. Offensive to watch.

Comment 01 Nov 2012

Thanks Ross.  Great stuff once again.  I wished Miller would have started off the PSU game better.  If he completes few of those early in the game, this would have been a whipping!

Yet Miller is still young.  The game can only get "slower" and easier for him!

Comment 25 Oct 2012

Thanks Ross.  Do you think tOSU will load the box and force PSU to go long?  Would you expect more man than zone?

 

I hope to see Roby on Robinson.  Shazier on whichever RB.  Send Simon and Williams after McLovin.  I hope they knock the moxie out of him!

 

I hope tOSU offense puts up points and eats up minutes to help the defense.

Comment 25 Oct 2012

PSU's longest drive was 6:27 ..that was for 97 yard drive.  IA played a terrible game defensively.  IA's offense did the defense no favors.  IA had one drive over 3 and a half minutes.  PSU ran 100 plays..IA 59 (26 of them lost yardage).  ouch

Comment 21 Oct 2012

Pic of KG is awesome.  So was how he pulled out the win.  (2 thumbs way up!!)

Comment 12 Oct 2012

Venric Mark & Mark Weisman, who are these guys? tongue  Defensively I'd have  Hankins a head of everyone.  Hankins has been a consistant force. 

For as great as the football team's showing was, TBDBIL was even better for the Nebraska game. I loved the M flag going down!! Congrats Mr. Waters.

 

Indiana had their shot to shock the world w/ MSU. tOSU OL and DL are so much better than any team they have seen.  Their QB's lack mobility as well.  Just like UAB, tOSU could play 2.5 quarters and still win by couple td's.  I bet KG and the 2nd stringers make a good showing..expanding the final score. jmho 45-13 to 52-16 kinda win.

 

As for Klien's situation must be Karma.  Then again..so is Leach's as well.

My expectaions for Matta's crew are tempered.  Then agian my hopes are high.  Go BUCKS!!

Comment 11 Oct 2012

Meyer is wanting to develop depth.  This team is beat up.  I think tOSU in a beat down.  Miami of Ohio game, tOSU was still finding out what they were.  tOSU is now a running team.  We will run to a big lead.

 

KG has earned some playing time.  MSU and Nebraska games, he comes in cold and puts the ball in the endzone.

Comment 11 Oct 2012

44 points means 3 FG or a missed extra point or saftey.  Interesting number for sure.  I don't think IU can stop tOSU in the red zone.

tOSU OL is playing at high level.  I say tOSU just runs them over.  Replogle meet Mewhort!

That being said Matte meet Hankins and Goebel.

 

The only thing that keeps tOSU under 50 is KG plays in second half..mostly run game.  Then again KG could add another 28 points on the board.  60???

Comment 11 Oct 2012

Northwestern put up over 700 yards.  Nearly 400 on ther ground.

I see the Silver Bullets running an aggressive cover 4 out of the nickel. 

 

IU had their chance to shock the world last week.  MSU woke up and the rest well was...normal for Indiana.

45-13 to 52-16 range..

 

I would not be shocked if 60 were to be scored.

Comment 11 Oct 2012

I hope they become The Baracudas.  Nice story thanks.

Comment 11 Oct 2012

I feel dumber for reading Dodd..

NCAA is crazy. You cannot predict what crazy will do.  That is why they are crazy.  If tOSU felt Smith didn't do all he was supposed to do, he would be gone.  If the BoT can get rid of JT, Smith would be soooo easy.  Water under the bridge..future looks bright!

Hope the Paranahs can graduate to Baracudas (the baddest fish in the sea!).

People love to hate Steelers (not a fan), Yankees, Red Wings, and Manchester United...I am glad we are hate that way too.

Saved the best for last.  TBDBITL
