Even Charles Woodson got beat once in awhile (David Boston comes to mind). However, I can't ever remember Shawn Springs, or even CG ever getting beat in college, man they were good...
Lol, good one...
I'm thinking that any records, or stats should not be counted in the record books against any FCS teams. This would probably get the SEC away from scheduling those games on a yearly basis - Because unless someone does something about it, they will continue to schedule only 8 conference games, and play 1-2 FCS teams every year.
Don't discount Purdue's QB's, they may suck as a team, but they've had some really good ones pass through there, off the top of my head, Jim Everett, Len Dawson, Gary Danielson, Brees, Orton, and Bob Griese. I'm sure there are others too...
He's so valuable to this team. I thought he was better than Eli last year, glad he is back...
6 - The number of passes JT Barret threw in the second half . JT was 4 for 6 in the ultra conservative 2nd half as the young Bucks were protecting their huge lead, and showing Bob Stoops' and his team, that OSU is not only a great team, but a merciful one.
Give me an example, not including the bad weather games Tulsa and MSU, with JT Barrett at QB after the Vatech game. Name me just one where this was true...
Oklahoma's only hope the wind is whipping, like it was in the 1st Qtr vs Tulsa, and the entire game vs MSU. This takes away the passing game, because for some reason, JT has proven time and time again, he can't pass well in a strong wind. When this happens, it is easy pickings for a defensive team. OSU made Tulsa look like the 1996 Buckeyes defense in that 1st quarter.
After that VaTech game in 2014, JT has proven time and time again, if you gear up to stop the run, he's gonna burn you time and time again in the passing game. Pray for no wind Buckeye fans and Oklahoma will be just a middling Big 10 road team they are playing. Ther sout ranking over the last 4 years are 15,13,14,19...
Well they certainly won't be top 15 after playing OSU in the first and second games, so you have to fall back on something, and the most recent past would be the closest thing. We know Tulsa's offense will be good, the same team that scored 38 on Oklahoma last year, only lost one starter on offense, so they are pretty much the same. BG, not so much, so last year's stats would be a stretch. BG and Tulsa had over 900 yards between them against their other 2 opponents this year, granted, their opponents were about as good as Michigan's murderous 2 game schedule though...
"Ohio State and Michigan — rolled in both games against sub-par opponents.". OSU plays against 2 of the top 15 offenses in the nation, hold them to 3 points each, and for some reason people forget that. Not horrible teams, just overmatched. Case in point, The MAC champ loses to OSU 77-10, it's because they are from the MAC, and OSU should beat them that badly - People are treating them like they are Troy, or Nichols, WKU, or Charleston Southern. However, when a middle of the road MAC team like CMU beats OkSU, it's because they are up and coming, and the MAC is stronger than people think.
I sometimes don't think people watch these games, like the 1st qtr against Tulsa, the wind was an obvious factor as Barret couldn't hit anything against that strong wind, and the Tulsa QB was hitting everything. Then the exact opposite happend in the 2nd qtr when they flipped sides. Geesh... Lol, just friendly venting. We'll know this weekend, but my gut says the Buckeye offense will score lots of points if the weather is good. Go Bucks!
mittenst8buck: Not knocking Urban either way, he does what he needs to do. Just so you know, your argument is moot, because at least 14 of the starters were from Ohio against Alabama, and at least 1 Alabama starter was from Ohio too...
Glad the wind stopped, I had flashbacks of the MSU game last year. JT seems to have trouble in heavy wind, more so than other QB's..
This is the year we're gonna get the ball to the
Tight End H Back!! :-)
Not only will he never be able to recover that money he loses this year, he will also not get a contract remotely close to this offer next year.
Anthony Munoz almost lost his first year, and the Bengals rights to sign him. It was a fiasco, with both sides calling each other liars, and a lawsuit too. Paul Brown eventually lightened up, and Munoz took the best offer. Later, Munoz got rid of his agent, and went solo for the rest of his career and Brown rewarded him time and time again.
I have that game saved. I've watched it many times, and every single time I turn it off after the TD. It's my way of dealing with my reality.
Hope Samuel lives up to his potential this year. Still disappointed in Dunn, but next man up...
I agree with you. It all started wth Rice and tyronne picking Iowa over OSU in the polls before the bowl games. This was significant because the higher ranked opponent would have played Stanford. Now, normally those 2 with ties to Stanford would have had to leave the room, but since the rose bowl was not locked into the top two team concept, rice and tyronne got away with it. Seriously, if you were a stanford fan, and wanted a victory, who would you choose, OSU, or Iowa?
In the end, with OSU beating the piss out of UND, without Bosa, only proved how much better they were than Stanford was at home against UND - But the rankings were already set,and alas Stanford stayed ahead of OSU.
Being on the west coast, I hate these days, I have to get up at 5am - But I do, every single time...
That's great, but this is much better, and you all will agree. Ohio State vs Michigan in Division 1 games only.

Gold diggin hoe's, driving me crazy, i can't take it no more
I understand what you are saying, and it paused me to think about it a bit.
1.) McQueary said he told Paterno - That's firsthand, not heresay.
1.) McQueary said that, 2.) Bradley said that, 3.) Schiano said something to Paterno - That's not even heresay, it's more like heresay of heresay
It sounded like BS in the first place... (McQuery said, that Bradley said, that Schiano said...)
Good for you Greg, I was really worried and weirded out for a little while - Glad you spoke up and didn't let this hover. Now we'll sit back and see if there is a recoil effect from this. Please football gods, don't let OSU get dragged through the mud on this by association...
Seinfeld, and nothing else comes close. In the second tier, Supernatural, Smallville and a one season show ironically named "Forever"
