It takes a larger Predator to take out a Nittany Lion.

I can feel the vibes building from miles away....Chase wants this bad, as does the rest of the team.

For the seniors (and the departing underclassmen), one last go 'round in the Shoe.

Go Buckeyes.

Hindsight is, and in, 2020

Exactly Hove, and this is why I feel this game is going to be an absolute blood-bath for the Lions.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

I mean to be completely honest he scares me too! Thank the gods he is on our side. It will be exciting to have him back in our biggest games. He seems to rise to the occasion. Chase is such a dynamic player he is a blast to watch

Go Buckeyes and Fly Navy!

The beast shall feast!  Welcome back, Chase!

Indeed. Why not have both?

I think Chase should be the Heisman-front runner despite being suspended two games.  He's clearly the best player in the country.

Great time to get Healthy for this 3 week run !!!  It's good timing we had players out and rested when possible and not needed as much

Chase and the defense will keep PSU's offense more than in check and the Buckeye offense will roll. Ohio State wins big Saturday.

HS

Actually I think that whole D line will feast. 

And throw in some blitzes to crash things, as well.

I hope he decides to come back for his senior year and get recognized for realsies.

Rutgers had some success running the QB off tackle. I hope Penn State sees that success and tries to emulate it in their game plan this week.

Because a play that works when running at a young freshman in Harrison, who's still learning, will not get you the same results when run at Chase Young

Glad he is back.  Bring an end to those lucky wild ass throws down field by PSU

I am glad he is back, yet Penn State's success rate is not lucky it is constant  - unfortunately for them so is he!

Chase is so disruptive to opposing offenses that he forces offensive coordinators to count him as the 11th and 12th man on the defense. He is definitely my frontrunner in the heisman trophy race. There simply is not a better player in college football !

If he runs up four sack again how can they not look at him and say "okay he isn't human give him the trophy before he snaps his fingers".

Not yet. Hopefully Chase thinks Sean Clifford has one hidden in his helmet.

So pumped to have CY2 back! I think part of our problem the past few years against PSU was our press man scheme. A lot of 1 on 1 matchups and the QB wasn't always accounted for. This also gave them plenty of opportunities to throw those patented deep balls up that they would always seem to come down with. I just don't see that happening as much with the scheme we play now. They'll probably make a few plays here and there but I don't foresee Clifford running crazy like McSorely did last year.

HS

Could not agree more.  Our D will make you put long drives together and convert on 3rd down over and over again and with big #2 back, good luck! 

HS

Browning being out scares me. Tuf has done a better job this year but still gets eaten up by blocks and has a tough time defending quick players. Without Browning's athleticism, we could get gashed for some big plays, IMO. 

HS
fishleehooker's picture

As an individual player, Browning seems to make more of an impact. But there have been 2 linebackers coaches, 2 D coordinators and 2 head coaches that rave about Tuf.  Each player seems tasked with a different thing on D. I think Tuf's assignment is different than Browning. I think they ask Tuf to eat up blocks and they ask Browning to rush the passer. They play the same spot, but are asked to do different things. Looking over our defensive numbers, I think whatever he is doing is working!  I would love to have Baron back too, but I guarantee Tuf is out there a ton, and for good reason.  I think people need to relax about him after so many coaches have deemed him legit as well as having great team stats to back that up.

And Fish, the arguments turn from who is on the field to who is on the blog site.  For example with the "embarrassment of riches," what started out as an objective discussion of which QB is better, Cardale or JT, ends up an on-going subjective argument about who was right, me or you.

Whether or not Coach Franklin had anything to do with Mr. Young being reported, I hope Chase believes he did!

HS
UpIrons's picture

In my humble opinion, the team was fired up against Maryland because of the situation with Chase. That attitude dropped a bit for Rutgers and made it harder for the team to translate into the energy needed on the road. Now, with Chase coming back as fired up as one can imagine him being, coupled with PSU coming into town and all the excitement of an unprecedented media presence at the 'Shoe? God help any QB in his way!

Getting Young back will allow Ohio State to lessen the loan on the younger defensive ends.

No more loans please!!

We beat 2 soft opponents w/o Chase. If it was 4 games we have the components to beat both PSU and Michigan w/o Chase as well. With him we should win both games and be strong and convincing. We need to get style points and win with command and show we are worthy of the number 2 spot with a hungry eye on returning to number 1. While playing backups in our previous 2 games many got valuable game experience in the 2nd halfs, we need to keep our foot on the gas until we have gone far beyond securing a win. A big win such as 52 - 21 would make a statement. We need to be considered as good as anyone. Buckeye fans know we're there. We need to convince doubters nationwide.
