When did we become a team that wants to run around you rather than through you?  It's not a good look

HS

Baffled by the 2nd quarter playcalling. Haskins and the WRs are a lock on damn near every play, and yet you force sideways runs over and over again for losses.

But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. So much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.  -Dr. Who, "Love and Monsters"

Zonabuck's picture

By rule, if a team is playing OSU and their QB is working as a lead blocker, he is assumed to be a defenseless lead blocker. Therefore, if the defense touches a defenseless lead blocking QB, it’s unsportsmanlike, and an automatic 15 yard penalty.

we need 5 TD's in the second have 59-7 is needed

In general I don’t like rematches like that. I was fairly impressed with Georgia, and they might well be one of the 4 best this year, but they had their shot against Bama and they blew it. Against the 2nd string QB, no less. 

HS

The SEC Championship game today was basically a playoff game. Georgia blew a two TD lead to a backup QB and they have two losses. They are out.

Just more proof Herbie has went too far down the rabbit hole.
Georgia definitely does not belong anywhere near the playoffs until they get less of a choke artist (Smart.... terribly ironic name) as a coach.
Second year in a row his terrible coaching has cost his team the game.

I don’t get it, the offense can score easily in 45 seconds. We need points and need to prove we are good, but Urban isn’t interested. I get not wanting to play to the bullcrap committee’s standards, but still

It's like Urban called the committee before the game and said "what score do we need to get in" and they said "it's over, it's Oklahoma"

Have never seen such a forced slow pace, let's get everyone touches, when the whole world knows you need 60 plus points.. one freaking deep ball...are you kidding me?

THEY CAN NOT GUARD CAMPBELL.... good gravy... just get him the ball and rack up the score..

Go Bucks!

Exactly. At what point did OSU stop being a team that kept beating you the same way over and over until you figured out how to stop it?

Relax. We'll hang at least 50 on them. As long as the defense keeps it up the score differential will be excellent. Hell, D has went 18/22 and 250 in the FIRST HALF!!!

48-7 or 48-14 will be hello Rose Bowl.... every talking head on the planet said Ohio State was out of it... well, unless they score 60 or 70...

Zero chance if we don't blow past 60...

The classic move up if you lose in the SEC. 

Clemson’s schedule is quite a dumpster fire. 

The media and committee have preference for teams with a good history. Brand name and history mean too much

Clemson hasn't looked impressive all season long and their schedule is a joke.

HS
YugoBuck's picture

The argument shouldn’t be us vs Okie. It should be us vs ND. 

We are comparable teams. The committee says that when comparing “like” teams, the following comes into play:

- results against like opponents. 

- conference titles. 

So we have the 13th variable, while ND doesn’t. We demolished TTUN, they struggled. We “could” demolish NW, they struggled. 

If we come out and light NW up this second half, we should jump ND, and they should fall to #5. Ask Vegas who would be favored in a matchup between us and ND....that’s all you need to know. 

HS
JakeStevensIsSwag's picture

ND beat NW 31-21 at Northwestern. Would have a game to compare, and the way its going, the final score would favor OSU. 

If i could change my username, i would

HS
ohiopanda's picture

Yep, but undefeated trumps everything. We wrecked Michigan by 23 and will easily beat NW, while Notre Dame won by 7 and 10. Notre Dame will get whacked by any top 6 team

bd2999's picture

Outside of the one long TD the defense has been good. Some very questionable penalties on OSU so far. I like the running and wearing them out thing but given what the WR are doing, why get away from that so much. The one toss to Weber that killed a potential TD drive, and resulted in a FG. That was rough. 

I do not see OSU in the playoffs even with a monster win here but if they hold NW to like 7 and even just score 24 more, 48-7 is a butt kicking. A shut out would be better but what you going to do. 

Defense is playing very good, but NW is also using some goofy play calling. Not sure what they are doing with all the passing plays. They are not going to be able to win much in footraces with OSU players. 

HS
Go1Bucks's picture

Cant shutout poor officiating

Go Bucks! TTUN tears are best! Beat Wisky!!!

HS
Go1Bucks's picture

The FOX announcers dont have the guts to call out the bad officiating, especially the 2 missed calls on NWs only TD.
The team that plays on the passing routes would shread the cfp. The team in the 2nd quarter would stop and take a shit at midfield and lose their nametags. (I blame the coaches, all offfense on that).

Go Bucks! TTUN tears are best! Beat Wisky!!!

HS
Rocket Man's picture

Seems like they are dominating the stat sheet but not dominant enough on the scoreboard ... but I think that is the MO of teams playing the Wildcats this year.  Bend, bend, bend, then get some BS call to kill a drive.

Zonabuck's picture

I posted earlier that I thought we would know Urban’s opinion of OSU as a CFP team by how we attacked today. In 2016, he said at the CFP presser that he thought we were there a year too early.  Last year, we could have thumped Wisky, but played Tressel ball and let them get back into it before winning by 6. After we missed the playoffs, he was calmer and looser than he’d been all year. He was relieved. 

I thought if he believed this was a championship caliber team, we’d come out and destroy NW. if we came out and held back, that would mean he thought we weren’t up to that caliber and would be better off in the Rose Bowl. It’s just a theory, but I think we’re seeing it play out. 

HS
ohiopanda's picture

Being championship-level shouldn’t be decided in his headache-filled head, it should be decided on the field. But he’s clearly not playing to the offense’s strengths, which is confusing and stupid, so maybe he really doesn’t believe in this team - but I doubt that’s true

Sheridanclan11's picture

We are not playing for the playoffs. You can see the difference in the playcalling from 2014. As I said earlier this week, Urban does not want to make the playoffs. I think he is tired, hurting, and ready to retire. The team is playing well but I believe we could be up by 30 at this point. 

HS
silverbullets47's picture

Then he should have stepped down if he doesn't want to make the playoffs. Just my opinion

"You win with people" — Woody Hayes

HS
Sheridanclan11's picture

I do understand what you are saying. I don't think it is in Coach Meyer's blood to quit before a season is over. I believe the stress of playing Alabama would just be too much. I am only saying that because it just looks like the offense is not playing with the kind of urgency I would expect or have seen. 1st and 20 with 3 minutes to go and we run twice? I don't understand it. 

HS
That's_Mr_Donald_Nicholas's picture

Then at least do it to try change the narrative that two SEC teams are always more deserving!  This will make 3 years now that the B1G champ has been left out.  Throttling down will only make it easier for them to justify this choice.

I know ND didn't play today and that hurts them, but how in the hell can you lose a game and move up a spot? That's crazyness

HS
Zonabuck's picture

ESPN only wants them at #3 so there’s a shot at having an all SEC final if they beat Clemson. That’s the manipulation shit that is the biggest problem. Not 4 teams vs 8 or 16. It’s the bastardization of the process with no checks and balances. That has to be fixed, or it needs to be dissolved.

bdegroff's picture

Hey Coach,

This is a business trip. You can have friends at the end of the season. You had no issue putting a beating on Wiscy, now you need to do it against Northwestern. You have to show the committee that you belong as a top 4 team, and all this BS east west playing calling is not doing that at all. Probably should have two more TD's if not for confusing play calling. Put up another 4 scores, and make an exclamation point. Fitzgerald will be fine, if you're that worried about his feelings buy him a steak dinner.

I think if we put it on them in the second half they should put OSU in instead of ND - ND beat _ichigan by y and NW by 10 or 11. They don't play in the ACC in Football and would have to go through Clemson if they did. That's what is BS. They play in the ACC in everything else.
