the picture of flounder on the jumbotron is outstanding!

i hope we don't cash in our good luck chip this year with a 12-0 record.  every team has a close call or two to make it to 12-0.  what will counter that is only having one bad qtr against a purdue and then getting a comfortable lead.   by the way, we are at purdue next year!  

i hate to say it but i almost feel better about away games than home. at home we relax, we do stupid things, we let teams stay in the game. we need the metality that evey game next year is at happy valley or camp randall.  lets not start off the year playing down to the opponents level.

here's my prediction on the ap vote next month after a bama 20  nd 7  champ game.

1 bama 1500 votes

2 ohio st 1498 votes

3 nd  1350 votes

just guessing, since these are people's "opinions" that we'll get a close but no cigar.  it will probably be so obvious when we get snubbed it will almost be comical.  think there will be any certain phone calls the night before the champ game to make sure who's voting for who? maybe in a certain part of the country? where ya'll is a word?   stay angry my ohio friends, just more gas on the fire for 2013.

is it safe to say that the sec started all of this conference competition and now that's such a big deal for the bowls. did we care about this as much 15 yrs ago?  personally, i want the big 10 to beat the sec teams, but go stanford-lets see an 0-3 for squinting bret and their rose bowl by default team.  still love how regardless of the stupid rules, media clowns, etc, we'll still beat an sec team on the field and that can't be disputed.

so how much of  an improved offense will we face next year with no denard, no roundtree, who knows with toussaint.  could be the same result. or somewhat close.   gardiner will have more experence but not that much.  scum fans have to be realistic and admit that the game should have been more like 30-10.   or worse.  say they only get that first touchdown and we get 2 td's in the red zone instead of fgs.   more like 34-7. 

Comment 27 Nov 2012

it's really been a great vibe for the last 366 days now. urb was hired, starting pulling in recruiits, moving up the recruiting rankings.  gettting good coaches, starting a new way of doing things mentally and physically,  and the with the season, transforming the team into a real team-playing for each other,  going from 6-7 to 12-0, beating scum, and now back to bringing in more recruits. and into the future, a top 5 recruiting class, top five preseason ranking and a chance to go undefeated again.    

Comment 27 Nov 2012

i love how we can carry the 12-0 season with us throughout the next few months. during the normal day, just thinking of it is awesome.  plus the small rewards-newspaper clippings on fridges and desks, t shirts, hats.   i mean dude, 12-0 we reached the zenith, we didn't lose.  that's epic.  

Comment 27 Nov 2012

seems scum is a little desperate trying to get an extra year for gardiner.  they better hope there is not a rule against asking for a redshirt from two seasons ago.    "yeah, i have a 6th year sr who played only 3 games in 2007, can we get an extra year? "     denied 

Comment 21 Nov 2012

i hope after a chess match 0-0 first quarter, we get a spark (and the crowd too) from the 2002 and tress ceremony and start rolling. like a 10 pt lead but then we have to punt and back them up so they have to start on their 5.  and keep rolling.   

Comment 20 Nov 2012

and i bet the wisc d staff watched the film and said, "wow, they ran what we hoped they would. we left the flats open and braxton didn't take off at all"   so lets make those adaptations on saturday.   the coaches should tell braxton-this is the last game, on a pass play, count to two, if no one is open, run.   stay with the quick hitter passes, keep hyde involved.  one call i didn't like was the shot down field when it was 14-7. we were moving the ball pretty well. should have stuck with that because then it was 2nd and 10 and then 3rd and 7 or 8.  we couldn't afford a homerun gamble. we just keep running it and get to the endzone, its 21-7 and we're in good shape. save the home run shot for  when it's 21-7 and go for the 28-7 kill shot.      

Comment 20 Nov 2012

i can sort of handle the games vs ichigan we lose when we're both 8-3 and it's on to the 2nd tier bowl for each team. winning in those years is great too. but when we have a season with a huge oppportunity and then lose, it's unbearable.  like the 90's.   we did well with tress when we had that opportunity. we have another this year.  just seems like it's lining up correctly. at home, going for perfect season, and urb as the coach.   hoping to see the field flowing with fans at about 3:30 on saturday....  

Comment 19 Nov 2012

pretty cool we're going for a 3rd perfect regular season in 10 years. and could have been 4 except for 07 and juice williams.   i remember this week in 02 and 06 real well.  kinda of glad only working 3 days so don't have to sit at work and think about the game for 5 straight days.   just remember the last 48 hrs- thurs to sat  to be grueling.  as much as you get excited for the glory of 12-0 and scum game win, you have to prepare for a loss too.   it's super emotional either way. so many chapters in the game history book.        

Comment 19 Nov 2012

i think its the revenge against the fat kid jokes. i bet if hoke was from cleveland he'd be all in for the steelers.   

Comment 19 Nov 2012

one thing i noticed today. nebraska-iowa is friday so if nebraska wins, scum has no league title to play for. just to win the game. and they'll know a day before playing us.   just a psychological/motivation note.   may slide a couple percentage points in our favor.     

Comment 19 Nov 2012

each trip at 6am to the whac= a play getting past a lineman.   before the  game i bet every underclassmen will look at simon and say, we're winning for you.  he may have the highest respect credit rating of all time.

this season is now so much like 2002 it's eerie.   the new coach and new dedication.   cal game = cincy,  mich state=wisc, psu,   purdue=purdue,  wisc = illinois,   hopefully scum= win, just like 14-9 in 2002.  and a perfect regular season.    

Comment 16 Nov 2012

no matter the wisky qb's age, you can't replicate game experience, i.e. thowing against a defense. lets get a 7-10 pt lead and pile on with quick pick 6.  that will really shut up the crowd just like at happy valley.  that game went from 7-7 to 14-7  in a flash or the two seconds it took shaz to pick it and run to the end zone.  some opponents mistake points would be valuable.   but giving up a blocked punt would be bad too.   i also feel a fake punt from bert coming too so lets be aware.

Comment 16 Nov 2012

i'm hoping we give up 2 hard earned  td drives and a fg for 17.  and we score on 5 td drives and no fg's needed.    lets limit them to 2 or 2 1/2(fg)  out of 10-12  drives.   

Comment 16 Nov 2012

easiest way to tell that old school pic is the headbands-scum game '87-earle headbands.  look real close and you can see part of carlos snow # 25. i remember the names on the back of our jerseys being a little bigger font than nowadays.  an excellent day for the buckeyes.   

Comment 14 Nov 2012

i bet the guy who made the osu plays down to the competition comment was not on the high school debate team because that is highly illogical.  sure we'll just take wisky lightly with our 10-0 record.   does our coacing staff say to the team-ok guys, easy game sat, we'll have the backups in by the end of the 2nd qtr. and you walk ons will be starting at the mike and sam for the second half.    oh and feel free to hit the madison bars friday, you'll  be fine with too much beer and cheese in your body.   

this would be a good game to have a lead late because they have to run the ball to get anywhere and that eats clock.       

Comment 13 Nov 2012

besides russell wilson going nfl qb in the last 2 minutes, our d did very well last year.  it was unreal how many yards they had against us-it was way below their average.  i hope we start well on d and wisky remembers that they were basically shut down last year and gets frustrated.  i think our d will bring more intensity than last year because we're on the road in a hostile game.   lets see a lot of 3rd and 7's and 8's and making  their back up's back up qb  have to throw it away or do something stupid. 

Comment 13 Nov 2012

what i like about this unique season is that it is definite.  it's 12 games, no card shuffling to see where we end up, etc.  we can be 12-0 and that is it.  win every game.  like a jv football or b-ball season. no tourney or playoffs.   just 12 games and hopefully lots of 12-0  2012 undefeated t-shirts and hats sales..    and some serious optimism for 2013.  

Comment 13 Nov 2012

besides execution. blocking and tackleing, along with intangibles and team chemistry. perhaps this is a team of destiny.  or karma paying back the kids who did no wrong but still were at the whac at 6am in feb with the temp at 3 above.   we've won a game by one precious point and a game with backup qb going heroic.  just seems we have those things on our side, plus a team that is putting it all together. along with possibly  not facing the starting qb for either team.   

Comment 12 Nov 2012

sorry, don't agree with wisky being favored by 2 pts.  they aren't playing the starting qb for one. i mean, we went to happy valley and at one point were up by 19 pts. and if we get a block on that punt block, it would be 28-3. is wisky better than psu?  maybe.  but good, lets be the underdog in a hostile environment.  lets make them one dimensional and  they have like 50 rushing yards at halftime. meanwhile braxton does his thing running and has success throwing.  a win at the so called un winnable camp randall would be another piece to the season. 

 

Comment 12 Nov 2012

on this site i would put a picture of roundtree with the ball 2 ft in the air and balance of the game hanging there like a coin flip. and have a mouse over of " karma paying back coach flounder for all of the childhood fat jokes"...   

you almost have to laugh at that ending, i mean, how many times are they going to pull that stuff out? it's uncanny.  the law of averages will balance out though.   is it me, or does every db that's given up that miracle catch basically makes the worst play of his game on that play?  dude, defend like you're a d 1 player not a 7th grader.

devin gardner did pretty good, but honestly, what is the their expected record next year? i mean, you saw the 2013 team on saturday.
