Wish I could say I'm excited about this, but the Vrabel news still stings... Meyer better clean house on the defensive coaches. The only one that was worth keeping is gone.
I find it interesting that it seemed like the only defensive linemen that could get any pressure on Iowa's qb was Bosa. Also, Bosa seemed to be the only defensive linemen that could set an edge. He was also the only defensive linemen that got triple teamed multiple times (when Washington and Spence were on the edges) which I find crazy. Bosa = beast
Bosa is a beast. I've noticed that the opposing team almost always decides to double him instead of Spence. Shows how much respect he demands even as a freshman.
The offense in the second half was pathetic. Roby was pathetic pretty much the whole game. The front seven did a nice job stopping the running game, I just wish we could get some more pressure on the QB when they pass the ball. Glad we came out on top, but this game shouldn't have been as close as it was.

Can't wait to see more of Bosa next week. Dude is going to be a freak!
Lol at how biased the Smith buckshot is... "I support gays" up votes aplenty "I don't support gays" down voted into the ground. If you can't handle the kind of comments that the buckshot you posted brought then you shouldn't allow commenting on it at all (even though it's clear which side the mods are on). You can't allow one and not the other... I mean if you want to be fair that is...
After I found 11W it became the only place I'd go for all my Buckeye related news. To be honest I feel like the 11W staff is just as, if not more knowledgeable than any other sports site in the country. I rarely go to ESPN anymore since everything I need is right here on 11W! Keep up the great work! Go Bucks!
I saw something on Twitter about his family paying $200 a day for a week with Whitfield.
Since I know Braxton won't win it this year I think Te'o should win it. If Manziel and his team were undefeated I would vote for him, but he has two losses and Te'o has helped lead his team to a national championship.

Oregon looked lost
A win is a win. I am so pumped about the fact that we have a chance to be 12-0 after next week, and even though this was Miller's worst game of the season by far IMO, our Buckeyes still found a way to get the job done. Man I love being a Buckeye! Oh and one more thing... F*ck bichigan!
Man, you got that right!
Did we go three-and-out on every possion in the second half? Sure seemed like it. The defense played in beast mode tonight. This W definitely came off of their shoulders

What about the rush defenses that Oregon has played?
Pretty sure the fact that we are very good against the run is solid evidence since Oregon's strength is running the football. But hey what do I know
Urban Meyer is our head coach. But besides that Oregon's strength is running the football and if our defense does one thing very well its defend against the run. Oregon's passing attack doesn't scare me enough not to blitz their QB and as great a runner as their QB is I still think we could keep him contained for the majority of the game.
I've watched almost every game Oregon has played this year, and as great as their offense has looked let's not forget that Oregon hasn't played a good defense all year. Arkansas St, Fresno St, Tennessee Tech, Arizona, Washington St, Washington, Arizona St, Colorado, USC. Do you see a good defense in that list? USC only has a decent defense imo.
Like I said, I don't think we win, but I do think it would be close.
Yeah because the defense hasn't improved at all since that game right? Please.
Exactly. Until this team beats someone with a real defense like Alabama, they will always be the same old Oregon team that has a great offense, but when they play a real D-Line that closes all those holes they've seen all year they don't know what to do. And Oregon's defense would not be able to stop the beast that is Alabama's running game.
I hope when those two teams play for the national championship that Oregon wins so that this sec bs can go away, but honestly I see Alabama as the team that would wear Oregon down, not the other way around.
As for this thread, it would definitely be closer than most people think, but I still think Oregon wins. However, I don't think this game would make it into the 30's. My guess is something like 24 - 20 Oregon.
