I didn't think so. And I am wrong too, as I didn't see 6-0 heading to the 4th. Although maybe we should have. They were Tressel and Walrused to death.

Looks like MSU had O right where they wanted them with a daunting 6-0 lead... and then they didn't. 

Way to "Michigan" Michigan State - for F's sake.  

Living the life!  Go Buckeyes!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's been his entire career. He's not very good. I'm surprised they are doing as well as they are with their starter going down so early in the game.

Can someone tell me why Justin Herbert is viewed as a better pro prospect than Haskins? I think he’s good but seems like more of a project guy than Haskins. I’m glad he’s coming back to college because he needs more snaps to polish his skills. He hasn’t developed as rapidly as Haskins has in my opinion but that may be my bias speaking. What say you?

Michael

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

At 6-6/237, he has the frame that NFL teams love. He's also been a starter for three years while Haskins has been one for 13 games.

That's all I've got.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

HS

Because Oregon has 300 different uniforms? I'd for sure rather have Haskins.

I will admit to enjoying the culture clash between Oregon, which always looks like it's in an Arena Football game; and Sparty, which would put a crowd of Neanderthals to sleep.

Not impressed with Herbert. 

MSU defense is damn good. They deserve better with that offense. 

Feel like this is a classic Big 10 v Pac 12 where the PAC 12 just can't match up with the physicality of the Big 10. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

HS
tcm1968's picture

Agree.... as a Chargers fan and knowing they'll be looking for a QB1 here soon wouldn't touch Herbert with a ten foot pole... don't get the hype at all... just about everyone starts with "he has ideal size"..... hard pass...

Go Bucks!

They still have to miss the FG... :) or punt from the 38... yikes.. so bad..

Go Bucks!

Thankfully, they will finish the first half without spoiling it with silly points - pure Spartyfection! 

HS
lljjgg's picture

MSU-Oregon is like watching paint dry. Is it possible that they have simultaneously the best defense and the worst offense in the B1G? Gotta think so, especially given how overrated UM's appears to have been.

HS
keith7456's picture

They scored 14 points against Rutgers..... I think Ttat qualifies for worst offense in the country.

HS

And needed 56:04 to put Rutgers away.

I really feel like OSU is going to have a lot of success tomorrow running the football on Washington. I just don't see them being able to physically match up 

Oregon had 9 yards total in the first half on offense. They ran up and down the field on Washington. Ducks struggling to handle Sparty. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

We'll need to control the LOS and run the ball because UDub will likely attack Alabi, who will have Haskins's blind side and that excites me...not!

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

I have to disagree with that. They scored 10 points on Cal and had no offensive TDs vs Utah. I think OSU has seen several better offenses this season....one being their own offense in practice

Is there anyone in their right mind that would pick that QB over Haskins?  (I would normally insert a Browns joke here, but there could be some hope for them yet.  They did pick Ward after all.)

My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.   - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)

Michigan- blown out. Played like sissies.

Purdue- blown out, embarrassed, players quit. Disgusting effort.

Sparty- worst display of offensive football in 30 yrs of bowl games. And fans here want MORE of those Ohio players that Sparty has.

NW- about to be down 14-0 to a team that scored 3 points against Washington.

Minnesota- at least played hard against a bad team and won.

Wisconsin- beat a Miami team that quit . Wisky was poor this year with awful QB play.

No thanks. Buckeyes need some LBs the caliber that you saw Alabama and Clemson put out on the field.

My God, the B1G is garbage. NW going to get boat raced against Utah.

I thought NW had a shot. I was wrong on epic scale.

They are absolutely awful. Narduzzi should get a flight to Green Bay ASAP.

Patience?  Isn't NW a 2nd half team?

After 3rd quarter, it looks like I am wrong again. I will look at it as being consistent at least.

Now leading with a +3 TO margin after the largest man I've ever seen except Fridge scores on a 21 yd pass.... damn.

NW looking good once again - playing well in the 2nd half.

NW starting to physical push on Utah. I expect the same tomorrow vs Washington. 

Remember...Washington could not score on this Utah defense

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

I love whatever Pat Fitzgerald said at halftime

Maybe he can give our pre-game speech - San Diego is not that far from Pacedena.

Just a 2 hr drive up the 5.
(Given no traffic.)
I'm sure Fitz already has his tickets and a TV spot in the announcers booth.

I can attest to that. Don't have to drive past LAX, but traffic is horrendous in Cali

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

Northwestern remembered to hook up the doll at halftime 

Down 17 now up 11 

I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.

Good grief. A tale of 2 halves. Helluva catch. That's not a push off.

Yes. Weak call.  The defender never turned around and grabbed the receiver too...  Has the potential to totally change this game.

You guys see the weather for tomorrow? LA under a high wind warning until 4pm pst tomorrow. 25-40 mph with gusts up to 65 overnight into tomorrow.

This is why I hate games outdoors of any significance. Hopefully it avoids the RB.

Meanwhile Jimbo is putting on an ACC beatdown. I sure hope he and Orgeron can start clocking Bama on the regular since Gus has lost his edge, Florida is trash, and Kirby only shows up in December... Dabo needs to share that PED hookup, but both of them probably have too many bagmen to actually get busted, so I'll root for Jimbo and Orgeron in the meantime.
