Not sure coach day wanted that info out....

Fields is tough.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

That moment in The game.. I thought that this was going to be a moment that we would talk about for the rest of time. “What would have been in 2019?”, I’m glad he’s fine and playing. Just be ready for the Big ten championship.

The Future is Bright at Ohio State

Instead it was the moment after he came back in that we’ll talk about forever. Gutsiest play I’ve ever seen the The Game. 

It’s pronounced “Thee”.

If he can get away with playing next week he should be good to go for the playoffs. The guy is a damn warrior.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Yikes. His TD to Wilson was a legendary heisman moment though. I’ll never get tired of watching that play. Ever.

I was fearing the worst when I saw it in slow mo.  Nobody can doubt his toughness 

We gotta keep him clean

Same, I saw his left knee bend soo far inward I thought his season was done. Shocked to see him back out there let alone throw 2 more TD passes.

He's going to be one sore buckaroo tomorrow.

The throw to Wilson was a dime

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

This makes the 30 yard TD dime he threw afterwards even more impressive. This dude is tough as nails and I'm so happy he is our damn QB.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

What nice is Chug made the crucial 3rd down play when Fields went out.

Huge throw. Great that day has confidence in him to call the play. You could tell that was a kick in the dick for brown.

Played fairly well. Missed a TD pass to Hill though.

Yeah, still worked out. I do not recall if he just felt pressure and checked it down but Hill was running open out there. It happens.

Fields is night and Day our best QB, but I can't believe how many people had 1 and 2s in their confidence in him in a previous thread. Dude is a player, job got done when it needed to be done

Tressel for prez, tOSU or USA, I'm good with either

Heal up Justin.   Big game next week and then you can get some rest.

We can probably win in Indianapolis by 40. Hopefully he plays the first quarter and the backups show they can hand to Dobbins and Teague and pass to the top 4 Wr targets. Heal and strengthen because the next 2 games will be much tougher against well coached elite talent.

the first game of the playoffs won’t be too tough if we get the first seed

We need to keep him upright next week! Great performance today. What a year he has had! Maturity beyond his years.

Shout out to chugs for perfect game management. Avoided disaster. Hope Fields gets healthy quick

Here's to Justin being a fast healer and the resting for a couple of weeks.

HS

Ohio State can beat Wisky without him. Since they are head at the half. Damn it. If not, go to Dabo and get some steroids to speed up the healing.

If not, go to Dabo and get some steroids hair gel to speed up the healing.

I wonder why he didn't start the game with a brace if the knee was already tweaked. I thought it was a common Buckeye practice for the QBs to wear a brace on their plant leg.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS
AZ Buckeye13's picture

Fields doesn't like to wear a knee brace. He feels it slows him down. My guess, from here on out, is he will be wearing it from now on.

HS
Major H's picture

Even though the quality is poor, I think JF said he had a brace on and when he was in the tent, they put a larger brace on.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Get to the physical therapist asap!

Hopefully he’s out by at halftime next week. The outstanding Ohio State physiotherapy department will get him back to 100% for the playoffs

What a warrior, but damnit.

Does this require surgery in late January with 8 weeks rehab after ? Not sure how he returns to 98% healthy.

HS
ScarletGray43157's picture

MCL sprain likely can rehab 100% without surgery, an MCL tear much more likelihood that surgical repair would be needed. 

Not sure what recovery time would be expected to be post-surgery.

The offensive line needs to step up and let absolutely nothing happen to Justin Fields - no pressures. no sacks  .... no one near him.... period !!

HS
Oldschoolbuck's picture

Agree, C-Buck. The OL actually did a pretty good job protecting Fields. On the play he was injured, our TE Ruckert got blown up by a D lineman. Rashod might be a better blocker. 

HS
Canukbuck's picture

Absolutely right, OSB .... Ruckert, if you've watched him block, has a tendency to lean into his blocks, which causes him to whiff on occasion ... Berry, while a better blocker, tends to take the odd play off, which is why he hasn't been getting on the field as regularly as he did last season ....

HS
adrianbuck's picture

it looked like Farrell, not ruckert .

HS
ScarletGray43157's picture

It was Farrell on the play that Fields was injured.

if Fields needs to rest, I'm convinced we can beat Wisky with Chuggs.

HS

Absolutely we win with Chuggs by 30 points. With our 3rd string guy we win by 14. Defense wins championships.
