Jason Candle of Toledo for Beck's replacement. UT's scored over 50 points twice this season.
Let them have their fun now. I'll have my fun on Saturday as the Buckeyes beat that team up north one more time on the football field.
I'd be happy if we put up only 300 yards on offense and won 14-10. Winning The Game is the most important thing the Buckeyes can do on Saturday.
All the Ohio State coaches need to look in a mirror and ask themselves what did they do to win the game. Answer is this: NOTHING! The offense stunk, especially the play calling, and the defense blew leads twice. Losing to a second-string QB is something that Ohio State should never do.
Zeke sounds whiny but I can feel for him. He didn't get the carries he usually gets. I also think there are a lot of players who are more worried about their draft status in the NFL than winning another Big Ten title and a national championship.
Outside of his three games last year, He didn't play very well this year. Good luck to him.
Fire Tim Beck!
ESPN thinks Sackenberg is a NFL quality QB.
Game over. Way to choke Penn State!
As much as I would love to see the Wolver-weenies get rolled like you would, I doubt it will happen. Penn State already gave up its 10-7 lead at the end of the half. Harbaugh will slobber through this one like he did the past two weeks to set up the Game that will decide the East title. I sure would hate to see that cretin win the East next week. That better not happen.
The defense has been great all season long. It's time for the offense to step it up and match the play of the defense with Sparty and the team up north to play. The coaching on offense has to be better, too. Some of that play calling is very conservative. The downfield passing game barely exists, and did Miller get more than two touches in the game? I can't remember him getting more than two.
And forget the QB sneak play, Beck and Warriner. When you need a half-yard or a yard to score a touchdown, give the ball to Zeke the Beast.
I'd like to see Zeke repeat Hyde's performance and the Buckeyes' offense break out in a big way. But I don't want to see the Illini score 35 points on our defense.
Under Beckman's great [sarcasm] tutelage, the Toledo defense gave up +60 points twice in one season. I don't miss him as a Toledo alum.
Let's hope the Buckeyes are number one on Tuesday night when the real important poll comes out. You know OSU will be under the microscope on Saturday night with Cardale at QB instead of Barrett. The slightest slip-up from him and the team will be magnified 100 times by the playoff committee and the SEC lovers in the media.
With JT at QB, I'd go with Buckeyes 42 or 49 to 13 for the Gophers. With Cardale at QB, it could end up more like the Northern Illinois game. That is scary not good at all. I just don't have the confidence in Jones running the offense like have with Barrett taking the snaps.
Same for you on down voting. You're entitled to your opinion, too, even if it's different than mine. It's what makes our country great.
Like you say, I hope JT learns from his mistake. But I still think he doesn't deserve to still be a team captain.
QB sneak call was known by everyone in the stadium and watching on TV. Hell, even the penguins in the arctic knew the sneak was on. Do something, anything, different than call for the QB sneak. They should have kicked a field goal to go to OT. Show some confidence in their defense against a second string QB. No wonder the Gophers are what they are.
JT deserves to lose his captain status for this. He didn't show the leadership off the field to still be a captain.
We should be happy for Dane and his new career and not ripping him for not being a star in the pros. Give him some respect. I suppose those who are critical of his pro career are still kissing the ass of the guy who helped end the college coaching career of Jim Tressel. His pro career has absolutely nothing to do with the story about him working for Channel 11 in his hometown.
The Peppers story is in the online New York Post. It's out there for everyone to read now.
Hope he can keep his health in good shape. I always thought he was a classy guy and a good coach who got the most out of his team that was not very talented. He knew how to coach them up. Hope his successor can beat Meeeeeshigan on Saturday night!
Think long and hard about a sport that you can play without getting injured. There are none. Baseball, football, basketball and hockey are full of injured players. Golf? Look at Tiger Woods and his health problems. Tennis? There's tennis elbow, among other aches and pains. Soccer? Guys are playing to deliberately hurt their foes. Track and cross country runners get shin splints. Play chess, I guess. Meyer said his daughter got a concussion from playing volleyball. Injuries are inherent in all sports.
scUM lacks an academic center. Hmmmm.
I'm a Toledo alum and I am rooting for the Rockets to run the table and finish the season unbeaten. But the Rockets have had a lot of problems in the past 5 years winning the big games in November. Northern Illinois has beaten UT for the past 5 straight years. If Campbell can post a 11-0 regular season and win the MAC title, he will have plenty of job offers coming his way.
Campbell has Mount Union roots in him. That's one reason why he is a winner.
Nick was there for a year and the Rockets were 9-2 with him.
