Damn, look at that motion blur of white just flying outta nowhere and right through that hapless player!
Penn state might take a lot of confidence from the game they played against us (and they should) and could win out which only helps. Not much I admit, but it helps.
I love my Buckeyes and I hate to see them lose but if they did lose to MSU (ugh) then I think they do have the best shot at representing the B1G and I would actually root for them for once in a playoff situation. I wouldn't care at that point because just having a B1G team in the first playoff games would be a statement considering how weak they said we were from week 2.
I googled mcl sprain Saturday night before I could even go to bed after that game and the lowest level of injury is exactly as this seems to be playing out. A few days off of it, ease back in, etc. No surgery typically at all for this kind of sprain unless it's in the very severe category and he would not have been able to walk at all if that had been the case. I think he'll do just fine as long as we don't need him to do an entire game and 2 OT's again... for a long time!
No we had to score and then score again immediately. Both scores went unanswered.
At first I was like, wtf? Then I realized Brutus was up top, controlling the beast... which is what we're going to do Saturday!
Which is why I personally feel that any games we win this season are just icing on the cake because this team has a lot to learn but the foundation is awesome and I am stoked about what a beast of a team we will have next year. I don't care if we get in any playoffs this year. Winning out would be great but I really only want to see us in the playoffs when we are truly a dominating team and I can wait for next year for that. Wouldn't we rather be on the national stage with a team that we all know is a beast instead of this young, talented team that we aren't quite sure of yet (because it isn't quite sure of itself yet)?
That also means we scored 14 unanswered points in 2OT!
I am still of the mindset right now that I just wanted to win at Penn State when I was in the thick of biting my nails down to nothing and stated that "I don't even care about the playoffs I just don't want to lose to Penn State right now" so I am going to refrain from complaining about rankings just yet. Too early. Check back in late November but only if we haven't lost!
My father was born and raised in Youngstown and, though he passed in 2004, I know he'd be proud of statements like the one you just made. Thanks for sharing!
I do not like how things look against Sparty but we'd best not get ahead of ourselves and forget about Illinois at this point. Wish we had a bye week right now instead. I still can't help but think the play calling was conservative because they don't want to show more than they have to on film to MSU but sheesh, you still have to win the damn games in-between!
Exactly why I said yes too. Well said!
This should never happen. Unfortunately I do remember it happening in the 2001/2002 Championship season by a Buckeye player against Wisconsin if I remember correctly, so can't say it's just a Penn State thing sadly.
Agreed. Just put him in a few times and let him hurdle over the defense for some 3rd down conversions!
I really love the way Bosa managed to avoid that last "roughing the passer" call! Good thinking there Bosa!
I will take the W in a big game even if it was ugly and "shoulda" been a blowout but let's hope it doesn't get this ugly @MSU because I do not like our chances there.
Same pass play again???
I would upvote you 100 if I could!
Bad penalty for PSU. Let's make them pay for that!
OMG... they are singing Bon Jovi again. Please make it stop!
Praying for OT at this point.
