Booker or Baker.....Baker or Booker? Yes please #buckeyeproblems
Damn it....if their kicker didn't clang that chip shot...haha!!
Not that punting is needed often but what a weapon. Flipping the field, pinning it deep....going to enjoy it while he's here and greatly miss him when he's gone.
The Browns need his services this year
1) Ohio State
2) Michigan State
8) Penn State
Fat Ass Weenie Armed QB, JT Barrett returns to Ohio State for another year (future headline)
45-21 Buckeyes make a statement
I think both defenses will show looks that the opposing QBs and OLs haven't seen on tape. I expect a lackluster first half from both teams offensively.
On Curtis Samuel:
"He's our primary playmaker. Everyone else has roles."
Is this just an honest warning to Big Game Bob and Co. - tOSU will give you a steady dose of Samuel. And when you are focusing on him - the remaining weapons are JT, Weber, Brown, Wilson, Campbell, Baugh, etc., etc.
Samuel with JT a close second
Sam Hubbard - this is his coming out party to show the nation Ohio State's next dominant DE
We're gonna go inside, we're gonna go outside, inside and outside. We're gonna get 'em on the run boys and once we get 'em on the run we're gonna keep 'em on the run. And then we're gonna go go go go go go and we're not gonna stop til we get across that goalline. This is a team they say is... is good, well I think we're better than them. They can't lick us, so what do you say men?
But seriously.....I think we go Bill Walsh 49er's offense of the 80's and use the pass to setup the run. I see a heavy dose of Samuel to start the game and then use Weber to pound the rock in the mid 3rd quarter on to chew the clock and win time of possession.
The defense will get a couple turnovers in spots to let the offense go full throttle attack mode. Whatever the outcome, I hope Urban doesn't ever let the foot off the gas.
I'm rooting for Georgia and Clemson this weekend.
I want Georgia to win because I love seeing Saban lose and think it's funny when Henry is underutilized and Lane Kiffin looks like a dope.
Clemson better win because I hate gold domers and relish when they lose - just like when scUM and any ranked SEC team loses. Plus, I like to believe that Rudy sheds a tear every time ND takes on another defeat.
Take off the homer hat, I think this is the first game this year that the offense starts to live up to the hype. The running game will be fine but the passing game starts to show signs of better things to come. Dale throws for 420 and 4 TDs, EzE has 175 rushing with Thomas and Braxton each having 100 yards receiving and a TD.
IU offense will be have success in the first half, with the score 28-21 at half. OSU makes some adjustments at half to shore up the defense with the final being 52-31 Ohio State.
Great article too
In the spirit of our defense, Coors Light
*edit: the diamond formation needs no explanation
I'll take a 1 point win, a win is a win. But I expect the 4th quarter to be on cruise control. I'll take the over and a 41-17 Buckeye win.
A lot of the same as last year. Healthy dose of EzE when effective. If teams load the box against us, we stretch the field. If they lay off, we pound it with EzE and Co. Take what the defense gives us and expose the weakness. This is a talented and balanced offense that could run for 300+ or throw for 400+ depending on how the opponent schemes the defense. I don't think OSU has a weakness on offense. Inexperience at WR, but there is plenty of talent.
Ironically, I watched "Now You See Me" last night on TV...made me think of the Bucks offense tonight
And the best line of the article...
"As expected, Butt was a frequent target..."
Yes, I heard he had a case of butt-hurt and shattered dreams.
Defenders hurdled and stiff arm success rate just made me blurt out in laughter, well played sir!
Who is this Mark May character? Never heard of him.
52-30 Buckeyes win.
A few Oregon drives get stalled out as they approach the red zone and lead to FGs. EzE goes for 225 yards and 3 TDs, 12 gauge gets his with 270 passing and 60 rushing with 4 TDs (3 passing, 1 rushing) and 1 INT. Devin Smith has 4 catches for 95 yards and 1 TD, Thomas gets 1 TD, Heuermann gets the final TD of the game.
And then ESPN's talking heads and other media pundits head explode.
The monster is awake, and it is the Ohio State football machine that is only going to get better and stronger in the future.
