Playing ahead, it may be argued, is as much a reflection of SOS, as anything. Take Wisconsin, they were 2nd or 3rd in defense nationally. Really?

I don't know how you would quantify it, but I am more interested in how a team plays when they're down or face adversity, than how they Play when they are ahead, say 21 to 6 against Bama or a negative four turnover ratio against Oregon.

BG: I have to agree with you. We all love to see Teddy Ginn in a Meyer offense, but Big Hank would make our D line complete. Personally, I am willing to roll the dice with the rest of our position needs. I think will be fine.

AWLIN:

Coach Tressell always said a successful season is directly relative to the seniors having their best year of their careers.  

I never bought into that, we wanted to win for the seniors, until last year.  What that group went through, in there for years, national champs. I am now a believer.

 KOZMO: 

he shouldn't be playing in many 2nd halfs.  We need him to be as close to 100% as possible heading into MSU, TTUN, and the postseason.    

I agree!  But I will take it a step further, we will need the backups  to get all the experience they can get this year, because of the turnover for next year. I know you can't worry about next year,  but I am.

TMAC: Exactly what I  thought when I read the Pryor article. But unfortunately there is a pretty big divide between dreams and reality. Pryor now knows he has no chance at quarterback in the NFL.  But for Braxton, there is no reason for him to believe he cannot be an NFL quarterback at this point.  But if he does not win the starting job for camp I hope he makes the switch now and not later.

Hank is the most athletic 330 pound man I have ever watched on the football field that I can think of.  HIs sideline to sideline pursuit was incredible.

FAN92: 

that bowl game vs South Carolina where our guys acted like thugs, that was the hammer that drove in all the nails.

 I agree. That was one of the first things I noticed when Tress took over, he put an end to that Crap.

BERNIE: you are so right. 

Spreads are intended to get average sports fans to put 50% of their money on each side.

And to to accomplish this they have to measure the betting populations perception. If I was a betting man I would have jumped all over Oregon -7. Whisky and Bama not so much. 

Comment 27 Jun 2015

BUCKOS: Amen! Thank you for the research. Meyer's teams have not covered the spread against TTUN yet. What was the spread last time we took our team to TTUN? Wasn't it around 20 points? All three have been nail biters and I expect nothing less this year. I will say this, if TTUN should upset us it will be as EPIC as 1969. And that started the infamous "10 year War".  Game on baby

JG:

if you weren't impressed by Tide punter JK Scott almost single-handedly keeping them in the game 

Unbelievable performance! First Bama fans I talked to the next day, said " Great game! We just can't believe you beat us with your 3rd string QB." To that I said "I can't believe your punter almost beat us"

RY4: I couldn't agree more. The tackling in the Wisconsin game? A mirage or the real thing? Wouldn't really know until the next game. Where has this defense been hiding? Is Wisconsin overrated or did this team just figure it out?Are first clue, that it was the latter, when Wisky beat Auburn and Gordon ran for over 250 yards. Game on baby! From there on it was the defense, the relentless defense, that stood out to me. I, personally, have not seen better tackling on a Buckeye team in a long time.

P.S. Had to get tickets on StubHub for VA Tech game. East stands, upper deck, Row 4, Section 37?! They are super hyped in Blacksburg. Can't wait

MA:

I guess losing 12 of 14 will make you savor any victory you can?" lol

 Or ties, remember the lovable Gordon Gee? "Best victory ever!"  After a 10-10 tie. Ya, I know the feeling. 

Comment 20 Jun 2015

 What shocked me on that play against Oregon was that they gave the ball to a "little" guy running parallel along the line of scrimmage, OUCH, where is this play going?  And that little guy cuts it up the gut and literally fights for the last half yard and got the first down by inches.  That little guy was Jaylin Marshall one tough little nut to crack.

 Didn't Ezekiel score on the next play to tie it up? Huge first down.  Second only to Cardale's first down against Alabama at our own 15 yard line. Let me think, I'm trying to remember what happened after that first down? Go 4 it Urban!
