UM will show up and play hard. No question.
A beat down today would provide an OSU jump over an idle TCU. Go Bucks!!
I for one would drool at the prospect of Spence returning, although not certain how effective he'd be given the layoff. My expectations would be curtailed by the length of inactivity. That said, I will hope for the best, and expect the worst.
This process just confirms that with only the subjective human element involved, proved by how Florida St. has been placed relative to their play, OSU has zero wiggle room when it comes to upcoming Indiana and UM. Those games have to be won convincingly and authoritatively.
Good win. Lot's of room for improvement, especially defensively. Also got to protect the ball. The potential is undeniable and should be fun to see them grow. No reason to believe they won't be primed to make a March run.
In other news, Duke and Kentucky are real good (again).
Just my uneducated opinion, but I can't see a scenario where J.T. loses time at QB next season unless he simply gets beat out by Braxton. Still a lot to finish out this season, but it's even crazier to imagine if J.T. leads this team to 14-1. That leaves either Braxton deciding to make it a moot point by either going pro or transferring, or fighting for the position and letting the chips fall where they may. I just see the former playing out.
Could easily make a case for OSU to be 4.
As as far as tcu, I absolutely believe OSU should be ahead of them. They beat Minny at home in nice weather 30-7. OSU beat a seasoned Minny team at their place in brutal conditions, with a score much closer than the game really was.
Awesome news. Any idea how many spots left, and who they might be??
I look at it this way. Last week Jalin made a mistake on a punt and didn't call poison when he should have, and Dontre fumbled away a kickoff return. Both resulted in short fields for Sparty. This week Jalin fumbled going into the end zone and then muffed a punt resulting in Minnesota points.
OSU won both games with superior talent on the road in adverse weather, period. That says a lot. Woe to the teams when OSU has no turnovers.
The only bad taste in my mouth is the success Cobb had, even when it was apparent they weren't going to throw the ball a lick. Granted, he was top ten in the country in rushing but at some point this defense needs to put a full game together. I certainly hope it's the remaining five games we have left, collectively.
Just not sold on either Baylor nor TCU. And let's be honest, not sold on OSU either as mentioned by others regarding the run defense. Very bothersome.
I would think of all people on the committee Barry Alvarez would know how tough it is to play in Minnesota in November.
Jalin will bounce back and be fine. Those weather conditions were brutal. It happens to the best in the best of conditions.
Don't understand the need to give those tweets more publicity, but that's just my opinion. Shitty people are everywhere, that's a reality. Does he deserve it? Certainly not. Surprised it happened? Certainly not. That's sad.
I think OSU scores over 40. Not many (save for PSU and VaTech) have held the offense in check and I don't see it tomorrow either.
Agree that OSU should be ahead of Baylor. Also agree that Nebraska got penalized for having a bye. Ridiculous.
Saw a lot of C Smith at the game Sat night, just didn't see him get involved with the ball. In fact, I haven't seen him get involved with the ball all season. Hopefully he can eventually provide some impact to the stat sheet.
This is J.T. Barrett's team.
Couldn't care less what time OSU plays.
Stay the course OSU!!! It's not over.
There is no measure to how much I want OSU to win this game.
Why are we even showing up?
My son and I will try and balance the crowd yelling our asses off in the stands next week. It's great that the game is virtually for all the B1G marbles and has such large national implications. Fully expect OSU to make them earn it! Go back to Columbus with a win. Can't wait.
I like these uni's.
