I work in Columbia, SC and have to hear all the time how good the SEC is year after year. My response to gamecock fans is that the SEC east is a dumpster fire and South Carolina hasn't been relevant since Spurrier was there. That curbs their enthusiasm quite well.
I understand the point you make but not sure about your examples. Samuel was hurt for a decent amount in 2015 and playing behind the best running back in the NFL right now. Powell was a two year starter before his last junior season and had a good season by all accounts in 2014. UFM did play a good amount of talented freshman this season and I hope to see the trend continue. It's gonna be hard to keep this talented 2017 class off the field. I'm specifically hoping Grimes can recover from his injury quickly and get some quality playing time on the outside. Dudes gonna be a stud.
I can't agree more with this comment. The fact that he practically gave us a score with his whining antics really cost him in the game too but I'm sure he'd be quick to dismiss that as "bad officiating". What a doucheturd....
I'm not sure if the committee takes this into account but we also had to play in two consecutive hostile environments after they BOTH had a bye week. That extra week of preparation really helped both teams IMO.
This was just an unbelievable win..... snatching an OT win fro* TTUN feels sooooooo *uch *ore satisfying along with what was taken fro* the* in defeat!!! Curtis is a fucking BOSS!!!
Here's to a perfect record for OHIO STATE against this turd
DEFENSE wins championships!!!!! They really couldn't have played much better. Defense definitely carried the team today with the offense out of sorts. Just ABSOLUTELY......FUCKING......INCREDIBLE!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!
I don't know how confident *ichigan feels after yet another lackluster home win.
Defense wins championships. (See Ohio State 2002-2003) in my mind the defense has carried this team when they've needed it. Huge turnovers and a massive play on a 2 point conversion. Enjoy the ride guys!
So much for Ohio State being "beatable" lol. Keep giving our team motivation opposing teams!!
Mclaurin came up with a HUGE and very difficult TD catch for us early. He got smoked by a Nebraska defender after he beat his man badly when things started to break down for JT in the pocket. Great catch in traffic and good ability to hold on to the ball.
If they can win enough games to be bowl eligible they might have a shot. (Sarcasm)
Ole miss would have to qualify for a bowl first :)
This defense is championship caliber forcing TOs when we need them and dline stepping up to make plays in the red zone. Love this team!!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!!
Good to see Noah Brown make another brilliant TD catch when we needed him! God damn that was awesome.
Johnston is a beast just an unbelievable job of flipping the field. The incredible kick returns should not be understated that was a huge momentum swing to end the first half.
This should not be on Barrett the oline NEEDS to pass protect better (got beat many times when the Hoosiers only brought 3 or 4) and the pick in the second half was not his fault. Wide receivers have got to make plays and catch balls thrown with some zip. He can't do it all himself....
Unsure of why the downvote you deserve an upvote good sir.
Both the announcers and officiating were just terrible. I'm going to have to start listening to keels rather than the D crew at ESPN.
Personally I think a 21 point win on the road to a top 15 team in an extremely hostile environment (who was quiet for pretty much 3 quarters) was quite exceptional to me. Couldn't be more happy with this result and to hear the O-H-I-O chant ringing through yet another big time college stadium was freaking amazing! Shout out to the best damn fans in the land!
I still am just in awe of that third TD catch the concentration that catch took is just other worldly! Best catch by far since a catch we saw by a future first rounder :). On his last catch that OU cornerback done got beat like he stole somethin
When will teams learn that an Urban Meyer led team should never be given extra motivation to completely obliterate an opponent. Eat crow dude.....what a performance by the Silver Bullets! The tackling in open space was absolutely incredible, the dline well outperformed my expectations for this game and the secondary was just all over the field. Unbelievable game on the prime time big stage for these young BUCKEYES!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!!
Congrats to these two official Buckeyes! I am amazed at how huge Hubbard looks. He is going to be a terror on the line for opposing offenses this year.
Saying Danny Clark is a "soft" commit is about as ridiculous as saying Harbaugh "isn't" a crazy person. Dudes family has a buckeye van for God sake!
