I agree NB. I should say greatest The Game I've ever seen.
That's exactly why I think they don't do it. Could you imagine us having to play this game again next week? I believe they think it would take away from the prestige and dramatic implications that The Game creates by only playing once a year.
The greatest game I've ever watched, period!
I still don't like the concept though of the Big 10 Championship. I mean what are we saying right now, that the 3rd and 4th best teams in our conference are playing for a championship. It needs to be set up so that the 2 highest ranked teams play in the championship. You have a 2 loss Penn St. and a possible 3 loss Wisconsin playing to determine who's the best in the conference. Just doesn't make sense to me even if we get an extra week to rest for the playoffs.
Never leave a game close enough to where one questionable call will matter. You lost, get used to it. Oh wait, you are. Go Bucks!!
They could fill a ocean with all of these tears today.
Peppers is a loud mouthed bitter punk. He talked the talk but never walked the walk against us. Their first mistake was ever comparing him to Woodson no matter how many positions he plays. So classless, I'm glad he had to eat his words today. Go Bucks!
This situation is exactly why I don't like how determining who is in the Big 10 championship is selected. I mean if we win out, you're telling me that we don't belong in that game? It should be the top 2 teams in the Big 10 period! I don't care if that means that we play TTUN two times in a row. It's the best against the best based on rankings not a last minute fluke play that determined the winner for two years in a row. I mean let's be honest about both of our last two losses, had the game been played on our field, we would have wiped the floor with them. If we would play Penn St. on a neutral field today, what would the spread be for that game? I bet we are at least a 7 point favorite, yet your telling me they should be in the conference championship instead of us? This is where the flaw in the system comes in to play. It should be the best against the best and once again, if we win out and so do they, you won't be seeing that in the championship game. IMHO
This definitely is upsetting to see a young man go down no matter who he plays for. THE GAME this year is major IMHO as it's the first time in awhile where there is major consequences on whoever prevails and loses when it comes to Playoffs and BIG 10 Championship. For so long they played us with nothing to lose and we played them with nothing to gain. I just really wanted to see our best against their best and at the end of the day, there would be no excuses as to why they're gonna get this butt whoopin'!
Am I the only person who would like to see what Hooker would be capable of on offense? Not only does he have the knack of getting to the ball and catching it but also the moves to avoid defenders to get in the endzone.
"Death & Taxes" since they're 2 sure things.
It would be interesting to see their record for top 15 match-up where Stoops had home field advantage and Meyer playing in away games. I still have all the faith in Meyer because he seems to strive in adversity but just wonder if he keeps the advantage that way.
I would also like to note, it's about the only time we're not ranked in the top 25 too!
As for the Trolls, all I have to say is those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. This is about the only thing TTUN can beat us at.
This team is the only one I know of who can lose a starting quarterback and can insert a back-up who is potentially more dangerous than the one we just lost. I want to see Cardale do much better then he has this year so far but I would be lying if I didn't say I want to see Braxton come in Saturday and light it up as an encore to his already legendary career! He is without a doubt one of the greatest and most unselfish team players in the history of this team and the sport itself. He will be sorely missed after this year. Go Bucks!
Mark May 2.0?
I remember not all that long ago a young quarterback by the name of Troy Smith took over for a hurt Justin Zwick. Everyone thought Zwick was the man and we were doomed. Can anyone refresh my memory on how that turned out?
This is The Ohio State Buckeye's, there are no slouches here! We will prevail!
