I like both, but they're different types of players... EZE is the best option to replace the downhill running game vacated by Hyde, but there's obviously room for a running game that's more than that... 

I do agree with you however that Samuel's ceiling appears to be a good bit higher...

I live in the DC area, so I kind of root for the Redskins by default, since I don't really have any other NFL team allegiances...

I am admittedly a significant fair weather fan for the Skins - if they're gonna come out and go 3-13, I'm not wasting my time. If they're playing meaningful football in November/December though, I'll tune in.

Agreed 100% - this has to be one of the top 2 defenses the buckeyes will see all year. Maybe everything will seem a bit easier for them now with that game under their belt...

I was very pleased with the 2nd half defense - only one touchdown surrendered.

Minus the last interception and dropped balls, OSU had a terrific shot at winning this game.

I'm ok with a small drop this week - solely because Miller was still part of the picture when the rankings initially came out. Either way, if the Buckeyes keep taking care of business, this should sort itself out in the end.

I was in section 529, three rows from the top... Quite a view, but there was a nice breeze the entire game.

It was mostly OSU fans (like the rest of that entire side of the field), but there were two men who are active duty Navy sitting behind my dad and I. Funny enough, one of them was still rooting for OSU, and the other was a bit less vocal.

I mentioned it in another post somewhere here, but the one thing that seemed different when I watched broadcast was how fast Dontre Wilson is - his speed does show well that high up :)

I was super happy they finally went deep to Devin Smith - we could see it open up right away, and it was the only offensive TD that OSU scored in that endzone.

Fun all around - hoping I get to go to the MD game in October.

Agreed that Wisconsin didn't help the B1G - the rest of the teams that should have won did, and even 1 or 2 that one could say shouldn't have did. 

Ask the Heisman voters halfway through the in-conference schedule, and we'll see if Todd Gurley is still in the discussion. He could be, but I think they want more than 1 game as a evidence for the most outstanding player in college football...

I love those alternate uniforms - wasn't crazy at first about the away version they wore against michigan, but braxton wearing his golden pants on a necklace warmed me up to them. Maybe I was too stressed about the game to see how slick they looked...

My dad went to pretty much every OSU home game with his dad growing up. He and I have been to one game in Columbus in about 2007, and are super pumped that they're playing two games in our area this year (we're in northern va).

32 years ago today my dad reported to the Army - on Friday we'll celebrate Command Sergeant Major Spray's retirement from the United States Army Band Pershing's Own. I can't think of a better retirement gift than two tickets to a game for a great career of service to our country!

EDIT: he visits this site every once in a while - here's hoping he doesn't stumble across this article as it would be an awesome surprise!

Agreed - I don't think you want to be too high at the start so there's not so much pressure. I think that's what brought the 2010 team down a bit - being #1 can weigh on you after a while. I don't really like preseason polls anyway - the one thing I liked about the BCS rankings is that they didn't start for several weeks after the season started.
