How poetic: 1408 yards; 14 touchdowns. One touchdown for every 100 yards (the length of a football field).
Enter this game with the mindset that they're facing a formidable defense and that our defense is exploitable. It will sharpen their focus and avoid the superiority complex they may have had prior to The Game.
I saw that TBUN spelled "OH NO!" earlier this season. Is that the extent of their marching and formation proficiency?
It only LOOKS easy... just like Penn State looked challenging, until that end zone pick.
Remember when we all thought a rematch with Northwestern in the B1G CG would be our best chance for a spot in the BCS NCG?
Is the B1G really a down conference? Or, like the SEC, we're just so strong - top to bottom (No, not you Illinois; nor you, Purdue.) - that any B1G team can beat any other on any given week? Indiana beats Penn State. Penn State beats Michigan. Minnesota beats Nebraska. Everyone beats Northwestern...
Recruits have to be impressed. Commit!
I'm loving these rivalry uniforms!! All they do is win...
From the Pat Forde article:
"He's a good kid," Miller said of Hyde. "He's a great player, too. He's a great guy, man."
Reasonable people can question two-thirds of Miller's above assessment. But nobody who saw Carlos Hyde run Saturday night would debate the player part. And for many Ohio State fans, the middle sentence is all that matters."
From the Pat Forde byline:
Pat Forde is a Yahoo! Sports’ national college columnist.
Reasonable people stop reading after the first four words, "Pat Forde is a Yahoo!"
...and all sports writers, bloggers and journalists are obligated to ignore that season.
Blocked punt - Indiana, pick six - Nebraska, fumble recovery - Miami of Ohio.
Lifetime 24-22-2. No vacancy. The NCAA has no jurisdiction over me.
EAST ---------------------- WEST. ????
That's just crazy talk!! Next you'll suggest that the Conference name needs to be changed to accurately represent the number of member teams!!! :)
WOW! These game posters are oddly prophetic! First the Purdue "Great Train Robbery", then the Penn State "Extinct", now this Wisconsin "Prize Fight" which foretold the trench battle that ended up with both teams doing their best to knock each other out. Can't wait to see what's in store for rivalry week.
Is that the image that was in the background in Coach Meyer's office during an episode of ESPN's All Access last August?
This is what rebuilding looks like.
I'll take it.
