Bleacher Report must have been listening to DiNardo when you said that OSU can't move the ball on offense.

Or maybe it's because of OSU's pass defense being 'turrible' - Navy might light up the Bucks through the air....only Jabrill Peppers could stop the Navy passing attack.

I want to score!

It's obvious why Vanderbilt is in for a long year, James Franklin left them high and dry to go to Happy Valley!

Vandy goes 1-11 this year...FWIW.

Comment 29 Aug 2014

I'd take Purdue by 21.  Hazell will get them back to middle tier 6-6, 7-5 type of team sooner rather than later

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Priceless....I love defenders with a bit of cockiness and swagger.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

As much of a fan as I am of EzE, I have a feeling that backfield will be a 3 headed monster this year with EzE, Rod and Dunn getting the carries in a 50/25/25ish split.  Before Dunn was in the dog house last year, he got some decent PT and carries as a freshman, he is my sleeper pick to shine in the Buckeye backfield this year.

Regardless, great news that EzE is cleared, and hopefully full go!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

This isn't an apples to apples comparison, but did anyone project Jameis Winston to have the kind of year he had last year in his first year starting at FSU?  Not that I have close to the expectation of JT having that type of freshman campaign should he start all the games this year, but I expect JT to be a more than formidable replacement should Braxton be out this year (worst case scenario).  

Devin Smith, Spencer, Marshall, Wilson, Green, Thomas, Heuermann, Vannett, EzE, Rod Smith, Dunn, Samuel....the amount of offensive weapons at tOSU's disposal this year is ridiculous.  And let's be honest, JT is not Bauserman or Schoenhoft, etc. (no offense to the former players).  I still think OSU runs the table until the big matchup in East Lansing in November, then we will all see what JT is made out of (assuming Braxton is out for the season).

Non-panic mode here.

I'm surprised that all 25 teams are from the "power 5" conferences, plus Notre Dame and there aren't any teams like Boise State, etc. that usually get some preseason run from the media.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Cook is solid at best sans the career game in the B1G championship game last year.  We will all get a good barometer reading after MSU's non-conference slate this year.  I hope they are undefeated going into the game with the Buckeyes.   

Our offense will be firing on all cylinders going into this game and their defense loses some key personnel.

It will come down to our defense getting off the field....I can't wait for this game and it's only mid-August

Comment 13 Aug 2014

It's funny that VT now has a defense on par with MSU last year.  I'm not underestimating VT by any stretch, I just don't see them stopping us in the fashion MSU did last year.  Call me crazy, but this year's offense is going to be vastly different than last year's with Hyde.  I think we will be doing a better job get the playmakers the ball in space which will spread out the defense a bit then we go to a more ground and pound attack as the game progresses.  Last year OSU had Hyde pounding the rock, Miller's legs, Philly on short routes and too rarely Devin Smith deep.  

This year has D. Smith and Miller, plus playmakers all over the place.  When this offense gels, watch out...it will be fun to watch.

Granted, I will miss El Guapo this year without a doubt.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

I think the atmosphere helps OSU in Happy Valley more than it hurts them.  Great atmosphere, place is rockin' and PSU has a marginal defense - not a game I worry about.

Honestly, what scares me in general is if an opponent torch us through the air in the first two possessions like last year.  How will the team respond?  Will they play timid or will they have the moxie to step it up?  I hope the defense doesn't have the "oh, here we go again" mentality.  I don't see it happening, but it is in the back of my mind.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

This is the Purdue effect.  For some reason a bad Purdue team has given us fits over the past few years, while we have also blown them away too.  Still, those couple close contests and/or losses are very present in my mind compared to the drubbing them on multiple occasions. 

Comment 13 Aug 2014

I guess I still have nightmares about the Cincy game back in the 2002 season and that greatly skews my thinking.  Last two games weren't close, you are correct, but that '02 game still makes me shudder.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Just like I gain weight one pound at a time, OSU will get to the four team playoff - one game at a time.

First stop, blowing up the wing T attack of Navy.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

Hands down the Cincy game.  They historically play great against us.  Plus, I feel like Cincy generally doesn't get the respect from OSU, subconsciously at least, and they show up to play.  Cincy has a roster riddled with players who didn't get that offer from OSU and show up with a chip on their shoulders, that's what makes me nervous.  I'm guessing very few Cincy players had offers from both Cincy and OSU, and opted to go to Cincy.  Thus, trap game #1 of the season.

I want tickets for the VT game.  Let me know the price, I sent you a message.
