But on the very first play from scrimmage following the Spartans' go-ahead touchdown, Thomas ran a quick slant, caught the ball from quarterback J.T. Barrett, broke a tackle and went the distance — 79 yards to the house to tie the game at 21-all.

My recollection is that this touchdown followed the missed field goal by the Spartans. Technically, it was the Buckeyes "very first play from scrimmage", but it came after a fumbled kick-off return that immediately followed the Spartans' go-ahead touchdown. Michigan State recovered the fumbled kick-off return, had an apparent touchdown called back for a holding penalty, couldn't convert on third down, and then missed a field goal wide left. The 79-yard touchdown pass from Barrett to Thomas was "the very first play from scrimmage" following the missed field goal attempt.

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.

Comment 27 Oct 2013

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...

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!"

Lifetime 24-22-2. No vacancy. The NCAA has no jurisdiction over me.

Comment 17 Nov 2012

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.

This is what rebuilding looks like.

I'll take it.
