Pizza all around for the MSU.

I'd include the OL.
Hermann? um, no.
I thought the dude called a solid game
He did. They've been building to this with JT, and finally took the reigns off tonight. Special effort from coach and player.
100% agree.... Herman called a great ball game.... gave Barrett good opportunities to complete passes, gain confidence and used a steady influx of Ezekiel Elliot to keep the MSU D off balance. More importantly the O line showed up in a big way and play a solid game. Very proud and impressed with that group.
It's not a lie if YOU believe it
great game and execution by the offense!!!
Herman did his homework...proud of this team - coaches and players. Great win on primetime. O-H
“I don't know how fast he is, but I've never seen anyone catch him.”
Please regale us with pre-game concerns and match it to post-game recap
Herman did NOT do a 'Herman'
“Save yourself and relax during every game. I recommend a fine bourbon.”
My concern going in was short yardage packages. We had not done well up til last night and many thought predictability was the reason.
Our short yardage plays were effective tonight, but not cuz we mixed it up at all but because we executed. Empty back field and JT running hard was the formula every time and it worked cuz we blocked well and JT fell forward.
Darn, we let them get to 500 yards on those last few passes.

Just because it's a Buckeye-centric website doesn't mean that they have to be blind homers.
But if we're giving credit where it's due, how about Todd McShay?
When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.
only guy to pick us to win! that didnt go un-noticed by me either!! Thanks Mcshay

Meh. While the audience here is nearly 100% Buckeye, most of us want objectivity--even here--especially here. The prevailing winds were for MSU and so was the evidence. I believed our guys could do it, but I wouldn't have put much money on it. Turns out I could have made some cash were I not so chicken, but I'll let it go.
I can let it go brah. But let's not forget the facts.
So impressed he's speechless.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here, its a war room
His two sentences seemed to contradict each other. But let's say I expressed that sentiment in a way that wasn't needed after a great Buckeye victory. So I erased it.
You can say that again...
DVs are from those people
Signature win! I love this team! Congrats Buckeyes!
Well done, Buckeyes - an absolutely well-deserved well done.
I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...
It will be MSU drowning their sorrows in pizza this year!
Great win Bucks!!!
It's not delivery, it's Dantonio.....
Fuck the whole state of Michelin. And Fuck you too, Notre Dame.
Nice to see the team rocking to the band.
Great game! Going to enjoy this one for a while...

"The only good thing about it is winning the d*** thing" - Urban Meyer on The Game The War
Urban got that top-10 win the national media kept crying about and making clear that he doesn't have while in Columbus. On the road no less. With a red-shirt freshman QB. Eat it, haters.
What a game!
I hate the offseason.
F'in ay!!! Congrats Bucks!
Work's not over. Let's go get Minnesota.
Hopefully Minnesota is ranked. That'll help us
Go Bucks and michigan STILL SUCKS!
They did absolutely curb stomp Iowa. While Iowa is not a good team, they typically don't get their doors blown off either. Maybe that's enough to get Minny to crack the top 25, but I doubt it. Had Minny not shit the bed against Illinois (seriously, Illinois?), they'd only have 1 loss (to TCU), and would be in the top 25, possibly even creeping higher than that. But they did, so they'll likely just be in the "others receiving votes category."
Now if Minnesota was in the SEC East, with that record, I'm sure they'd be in the top 15. *dismissive wanking motion*
I watched Minn play TCU. They couldn't even cross the 50 yardline. Makes me wonder just how bad Iowa and their excellent coach are??
That loss looks better and better though. From what I saw yesterday, TCU could very well be the best team in the country.
Man, that was sweet. What a game!
Great game. One for the ages. MSU played well, but the way better team won.
my wife asked me about Buck I Guy and "Fat Old White Guy Who Paints His Face"
can we ask them nicely to leave?
Hey! The rule is no bouncing parts!
Guilty. There's a lot of jiggling going on up in there too.

I still admire the MSU program and can now go back to pulling for them :)
Im just gonna leave this here...
there is no greater joy than watching Michigan get slammed. in anything
MSU needed another two weeks to get ready evidently.
"There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you."
There's Urban's big win. There were big chunks of the first half where it looked like they didn't want it, and if the defense had made any big plays the score would have reflected how much better we really were ... but hey, committee: our win over Sparty was at least as impressive as Oregon's, and probably more so.
Great job for the offensive line, after that one first quarter drive where J.T. was under siege. They manhandled the alleged bad boys of the B1G.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
There's Urban's big win. There were big chunks of the first half where it looked like they didn't want it
You can thank Dontre Wilson for that. 2 fumbles(one that led to 7 points for MSU) and one dropped pass that was surely a first down. Jalin Marshall should replace Dontre permanently.
Remember hes a young kid and he made a key 3rd down catch and the td that gave them control of the game......if he works through this and come out better on the other side it could end up being a blessing in disguise
^ best post ever ^
I understand he's a young kid, Chirobuck, but he's going to cost OSU a game at some point.
He's a young kid - but so is Marshall - who should no longer share the "co-starting" spot with Wilson. Besides the drops & the fumbles, he is the easiest tackle in D1 - goes down first contact everytime.
Agreed. Too many drops and turnovers for Wilson. Time to move down in the depth chart until he gets these issues straightened out. Samuel needs some time on the field somehow, and Marshall is playing very well. Really not enough playing time for someone who is not making the plays.
In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...
One fumble we recovered, one led to their missed field goal. He had a tough night but came back and caught the game winner. People need to relax on Dontre.
Ahhh, the smell of Chris Spielman's Dirty Socks...
Rod Smith sat his ass all last year for fumbling twice at the beginning of the season. Dontre had two fumbles in one game and still kept running out there getting chances. I don't get it.
Totally agree with this, Poop. Or, this poop.^^^^^^^^^
Rod Smith? The Rod Smith who is no longer on the team? I think he had more than fumble problems.
Dontre did not have any fumbles that led to MSU points. His first fumble was recovered by OSU, and the second one led to a missed field goal by MSU. None of his mistakes actually had much of an effect on the outcome of the game. Even when he had that bad drop, we ended up scoring a few plays later.
He undoubtedly had a bad game, but he's a young guy who makes some plays, I wouldn't give up on him yet.
That last drop actually worked in our favor and bled another two minutes off the clock before we scored. Either way, I yelled his name way too much tonight.
That last drop actually worked in our favor and bled another two minutes off the clock before we scored
Perfect. Maybe Urban can have Dontre fumble a few more times to help us out vs. Minnesota, Indiana, Michelin and in the B1G championship game?
to be fair, dontres fumble did not lead to points, they missed the field goal.....it was the fumble on the punt return that led to points, and that was not dontre
I would say more impressive due to the fact they didn't travel across the entire country before we played them, they had their home crowd and it didn't mean shit!
Plus they had a bye week coming into this game.
I am happy.
I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.
Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan
Who the fuck is pat narduzzi?
I think he was trying to pad his resume for the Michigan job.
That job belongs to Charlie Weis. Need a BIG time coach.
A man who doesn't need to try to pad anything.
Never forget, Sparty, we're in the EMPIRE business!
Greatest win in the Urban Era.
Let's keep kicking ass.
I like football
2 OT's against an abysmal Penn State team and then absolutely torch Michigan State on the road
This team never fails to confuse and amaze me
Welcome to college football. And that's why we love it.
Deep down, the MSU fans knew this was coming.
Tip your cap to Tom Herman. He's been ridiculed for choking in big games, but tonight he ripped Sparty a new asshole.
JT Barrett, I have full confidence in to lead the Bucks for the next 3 years.
Tom Brady lost to John Cooper. Never forget.
Too much feels. Great many awesome. Great jeebus what a win. Buckeyes are all the wiin.
I stopped being cool before it was cool to not be cool. #TrendSetter
Yeah,that is right, Ohio state whooped up on Sparty!! We are the best team in the big ten!!!
Here is the thing. I'm not saying OSU is a top 4 team or deserves to be in the playoff but if they get it...watch out. They can play with any team in the nation.
Herman did what he should have done against MSU last year and against Clemson, trust his offense. The defense though, ouch. Anyone else notice the 500 questions they asked JT at the end of the game? Or Herby plugging the SEC 4 times in the span of 30 seconds? ESPN is so shit for college football coverage. Good win, Minny aint no slouch, get to work.
Turned off Herbie and company mid-way through the second quarter. Smooth, smooth Keels the rest of the game.
Man, Herbie sucks the dick of any team playing OSU so hard.

Never doubt the Buckeyes.
I've never been happier to eat crow.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
Thank you for manning-up. I may be a Buckeye homer, but NOBODY gave OSU a chance to beat MSU. Much like 2002 vs. Miami. THAT'S when you bet the house.
Nothing wrong with pointing out our flaws, I just felt we harped on OSU against vt and psu and didn't give the same criticism to MSU against Purdue and Oregon who I thought we had similar skill players in.
Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.
I love my 11W staffers, and can't blame them for their picks, as they were trying to take the emotions out of their decisions, and who are we to suggest they are less fans for not picking our boys is all I'm sayin'. There was too much spit going their direction, so let's be rational first. Sometimes it's great to be wrong, and I'm sure they are no less happy than we are with the outcomes.
Very proud of this Buckeye team. They exhibited such resiliency in overcoming problems on special teams and took a hard-nosed Sparty defense behind the woodshed. Big time Ohio State win. I'm so excited! Go bucks!
How firm thy friendship.
The lord of brevity.
I could not be happier. Just the type of execution I have wanted to see from this team! Excellence!!

We are better than we were last year and they are worse so really this is the outcome I expected.
A little is better than nada, sometimes you want the whole enchilada
TURD_BUCKET gonna celebrate with some ice cream, woo hoo
Love love love the win.
Was anybody else yelling at the interviewer to let J.T. go to be able to sing Carmen? I was so pissed.
Carmen Ohio after the game. That was absolutely beautiful! GO BUCKS!
This is considered a Win over a Top 10 team right?
I really do Love this team.
Now, as per usual with Buckeye opponents, I expect Sparty to lose the rest of their games this season. Pretty sure that's how it works, right?
Remember, Remember the 8th of November.
Watched V for Vendetta on IFC today while I was clock watching
- Respect the Rivalry -
Fun fact - we own Sparty's home field... they haven't beaten us at their home since '99.
That's right, go eat some pizza ya green hacks~!
[EDIT: Thanks C-Pops]
Since '99...when Saban was around.
They haven't beaten us there for much longer than that.
"I'm Willie Buckets, and I approve this message"
Braxton Miller's career as an Ohio State Buckeye is done. We haven't seen a professional performance like that at the QB position since Troy Smith against Michigan in 2006.
I said the same exact thing to my dad. I haven't seen a performance like this since then.
After a shaky first 20 minutes..... THE BUCKEYES TOOK CARE OF BIDNESS!!!!
...and amazingly, the Bucks did everything they could to give it away that first quarter. Good God did they turn it around.
It's crazy to think that Sparty was +2 in the turnover margin, at home, in not great weather, and still lost by 2 scores.
I knew this team was super talented, but I thought the youth would bite them in the ass a good bit. It did, but it didn't matter. If OSU plays like this, they have a shot at beating anybody.
Chin up Sparty... you may just be the 2nd best team in the country
Slingin' swag since 1970
THIS WAS SPARTA!!!!
See that was exactly why I have a hard time rooting for Mark Dantonio anymore. He should have just took a knee on that final possession but instead his players tried those backwards laterals which I know he didn't tell them to do but he also didn't tell them to just take a knee. They had no hope of coming back with that little amount of time left on the clock.
I take your point, but you just can't take a knee when the scoreboard isn't in your favor. You just can't.
So you lost respect for a guy because he refused to lay down and die?
Had JT taken a knee on the previous 3rd down, there would have been very little time for those laterals and whatnot.
JT BARRETT BACK IN HEISMAN CONVERSATION.
also... Quiet performer of the night goes to ZEKE!!!! 154 yds? Did not realize that til stats were disclosed near end of game! GO F$&@ing BUCKS!
Amazing offensive performances all around, but I'm glad that one of the big helmet stickers goes to Devin Smith.
Smith has been through the grind for four years and has been (not unfairly) criticized for being one-dimension in the past. Well, D. Smith played an all-around awesome game tonight.
Just back the truck up for whatever B1G awards of the week JT is eligible for
I have been critical of the coaching and especially the play calling on offense - which has been improving since the VT game - but this was a masterpiece. Hats off to UFM, and especially Hermann. You could almost tell how they were going to attack on the second play of the game. Minus a couple of mistakes - fumbles, penalties, dropped interceptions...this could have been a huge blowout. Bucks looked NASTY! tonight. Lets destroy MN now! Hopefully LSU won't jump ahead of us with their close OT loss today and perhaps we can even move ahead of Auburn LOL.
Nobody gave Ohio State a chance. Nobody. ESPN, not even B1G. NOONE!!! Run amok!!! ROCK THAT SH*T!!! HELL YEA BABY!!!! Awwwww........... poor MSU fans had their signs made and then the Buckeyes ruined their nights...BOOM!!!! HELL YEA BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hahaha. Nice. Some people are just as Grumpy as Dantonio
I'm sick of opinion bashers that think their opinion is so much more intelligent and fact based than someone else's. That and the dv trolls who dv just for kicks. Butthurt at its finest, degree's in butthurt are being nationally recognized and validated by a state that happens to look like a mitten.....
1. Entire offensive line
2. Joe Thomas Barrett
3. Mike Bennett
4. EZ Elliott
Preparation + Opportunity = Victory in East Lansing. Go Bucks!!!
Devin smith deserves some love as well!
Quite possibly the best game of his career. He played angry. I hope he keeps that up the rest of the season.
I for one am so proud of these kids!!! They played their hearts out tonight and left everything on the field!!! I for one can't wait to hear Mark i still live in my hay day May suck an egg tonight!!!!
For all of those who think Grey is wrong~ Dictionary
Great win but tough one next week. Going to be very cold and a physical Gopher team. O-line and defense need to Buckle up.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
If Minnesota wouldn't have lost to Illinois we might have been facing 2 ranked teams on the road two weeks in a row
What just happened was some...
As Urban said... "the future is very bright at Ohio State"
It's good to be a Buckeye.
Where is StefiTony and his level headed talk about how Sparty played 60 players against our 30? Please show back up after the ass whoopin.
Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
great. freaking. win. Barrett. Thomas. O-line, yes please!!!
Never thought we'd put 49 points and almost 600 yards on Sparty's D. That was just flawless offensive execution. What Urban and Herman saw on the Oregon tape was exploited with extreme prejudice.
D gave up a lot but last year's D would've lost that game. We rattled Cook just enough to keep him from making the same plays he made last year.
Minnesota won't be easy. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed we avoid the emotional letdown.
This is hands down the most proud I've been of the Buckeyes since the 2006 TTUN game. Seriously. Wow.
Attention college football world. Be afraid. Very afraid.

Not ashamed to admit I teared up a bit when Urbs hugged Shelly and the band was playing. Life is good!
Great performance all around, finally the big win the team and Meyer needed. Let's be sure to enjoy this one.
Looks like me green poop earlier was a good sign. A good sign indeed
Fuck yea!! Let's drink all the booze!!
Done. Now I have an empty bottle of four roses.
3 85 yards and a cloud of dust.
Great win even with turn overs, missed opportunities on fumbles and interceptions and penalties. We still dominated, this is a very good football team, GO BUCKS!
Great, great, great win. Let's enjoy this tonight. But don't overlook UMN.
49-37. It wasn't even THAT close.
We kicked their ASS!
Great team win... and Taiwan was right, JT is pretty good! HA HA HA HA. (and why was it so hard for Fowler and Douche-Streit to give the Bucks some credit... those 2 suck.
I thought Kirk remained pretty neutral until the game got out of hand, then he definitely started giving credit where it was due...
In case you're curious, it's Mr. Spray
Looks like steak and shrimp for Urban and the gang tonight!
And with this win we set the record for most consecutive league wins.
Maybe I am mistaken, but did we run the same sweep to the right that failed in the BIG game against MSU last year to help run out the clock this year?
This may be the hump that Meyer needed to surpass to get The Buckeyes to the next level. I'm glad it happened.
Having said this. I agree with IBLEED, the Gophers are no slouches. They are a perfect let down game if we let it happen in Minny. But Indiana isn't a slouch either, and the Big Game is the Big Game. So there's much to be played.
This was a big one though. A big one. Go Buckeyes.
If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.
Yes, we did run the same sweep and it was all about blocking and it was executed this year when we needed it and really it was a better play by MSU last year to stop it. The difference was we have more play makers this year and an improved D. The ceiling is high with this team.
NOBODY wants to play these Buckeyes. Trust me.
Last year it was Plan A) Braxton keeper, or Plan B) hand the ball to El Guapo. This year's offense is so much harder to defend against, as Michelin State just found out. And we can thank JT Barrett.
I think they ran it to the short side of the field last year, which was dumb.
Someone said elsewhere here, "there is still a quarter if the season left."
The country picked msu, the "experts" picked msu, corso picked msu. OSU wins, thank you Buckeyes
The 11W round table picked MSU and many fans did too... Bottom line if you watched MSU play this season it was an even match up with OSU to prove something. Great win
Don't forget. The chicken shits on THIS site picked MSU 27-25. Care to comment now that you've embarrassed yourselves?
I'm kind of a fan of how they play as the underdog. Pick against 'em every week if we play like that trying to prove people wrong. And koodos to Buckeyes fans picking against the Buckeyes. That doesn't mean they weren't rooting for them to win.
Were you making the same demand when OSU lost to VTech? I doubt it. So why freak out now?
Let it go.

"The future is bright at Ohio State." - Urban Meyer 1/1/15
Alice also says he is a ttun and MSU guy so for that reason thought he was a terrible guest today... They really missed an opportunity to have Hoyer on to be the guest as a Brown and MSU alum
The OL controlled the LoS; Barrett and Elliott are stars; Herman kept his foot on the accelerator; Doran Grant was sensational; The entire D was great! What a great win! Meyer has his marquee win at OSU, with many more to come. Ash and Fickell did a great job, as did all of the Coaches. This year we outcoached the entire MSU staff!
There is no question but that we are a top 4 team!
But, we better be prepared for Minnesota next week and for the B1G Championship Game as well.
We should be in the top 8 this week unless the narrative discounts the best win out of anyone around.
So proud of the coaches and the players. What a great night to be a buckeye!
other than helmet, where else are players allowed to put "helmet" stickers? JT's helmet looks like it will be full before end of the year :)
I had full confidence the Buckeyes would pull it out. I didn't think they'd go up there and put up 49 and just totally kick that ass! Well done Buckeyes! Proud of this team!
Class of 2010.
I had full confidence the Buckeyes would pull it out.
Thats what she said!!!
Great win Buckeyes! When nobody outside of OSU fans gave you a chance, you showed the team came to play.
What a hard fought victory! Go Bucks!
"Because the rules won't let you go for three." - Woody Hayes
THE Ohio State University
Just a few comments about a true classic game tonight (both teams put it all out on the field tonight - great game !!):
Right now, JT Barrett is proving to be the best QB at OSU and if allowed, will rewrite some records at the university. His skill set as a total package (leadership, ability to execute the read-option offense, passing accuracy and timely running) is better than Miller .... and I love Braxton Miller .....
I cannot remember when I have had more fun watching the Buckeye's !
WELL DONE ! players and coaches.
I'm a serial upvoter.
Not to be confused with a cereal upvoter.
'and... I'm drunk, but it's all good, because the Buckeyes won.
Ditto. I will upvote more than is necessary because FUCK SPARTY.
Very proud of this victory, Herman & JT solidified themselves, the D's improvement is astounding, this team has a significantly bright future, next year is going to be scary...
"Because I couldn't go for three."
Great job Buckeyes! You earned this win.
I have not had that much fun watching a game in a very long time! Many thanks, Bucks!
Hats off to Doran Grant for manning up Lippett all game, and Michael Bennett had some big plays. Beautiful football to watch. Go Bucks!
Seriously, for all the lippett talk, Grant was a beast
Have you ever seen a fierce animal who you were sure wouldn't bite? Because I haven't.
I think Lippett had a case of the yips. Seriously, whatever voodoo Grant was partaking in, I approve.
How about that offensive line! Stepped up in a big way. What a great win, so damn proud to be a Buckeye!
...And M*ch*g*n still sucks.
You guys should be ashamed of yourselves for picking against the Buckeyes.......I hope this is a lesson learned.
Why should anybody be ashamed? I picked the Buckeyes to beat Michigan State in last year's championship, and I picked them to win the Orange Bowl, and I picked them to beat Virginia Tech. No one gave me a hard time for being wrong about those games.
smacked the literal fuck out of them. luv u bucks!!
rule #76. no excuses, play like a champion.
Is it me or it jus seems we were playing conservative on Offense the whole season leading up to this game...
And now gentlemen. The battle is over. Sparty DEFEATED!!!
So are we like the Persians? Don't know if I like that.
How bout everyone that doubted our Bucks man up?
21 straight big ten regular season wins. New record.
10-14 on 3rd down ...
What a win! Never foresaw our offense dominating up front like that. Kudos to the entire oline. JT is so poised and his future is very bright.
I am amazed at how dominant we were after falling behind, despite very few big plays on defense and several bone headed errors by the D and special teams to set up points for them. Incredibly satisfying victory.
Message to Sparty.
"There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing"
Great Win. Go Bucks!!!
How about a round of applause for the Offensive Line tonight!!!!!!
That was the game I we needed to play. Everything I thought we needed to do, we did. We controlled the time of possession, we protected Barrett, we took away Lippett and we moved the ball. Aside from seeming to shoot ourselves in the foot more than a couple times (Dontre 3x, Apple dropped pick 6, missed FG, D falling asleep on key plays in 4th, etc...) we still persevered and came away victors. I won't be too hard on Wilson, yeah the kid make mistakes that could've cost us the game, but he put his hat back on and made a couple big plays to seal the win. You grow through adversity and I hope that his tough night provides that. The O line was absolutely outstanding, those young men deserve a huge acknowledgement from all of us. Barrett was just a damned leader out there, what a blessing to have him play on our team. Zeke is going to be a force from here on out.... and Devin Smith earned his way back into my circle of trust. Overall, very impressed with this team.... we are for REAL!
Bosa had a tough night, but his motor never stopped, he got to experience what its like to be a marked man on the big stage.... I'm not at all worried about him. Doran Grant was the frickin man on Lippett....awesome job in man covg tonight.....Bennett had a huge night on the D line... welcome back to stardom big guy!
Now that this is over, bring on the next.... buckle down and focus on the next opponent and give them the attention they deserve. We are still a work in progress and we still have to win games to get to the promised land...... keep the good times rollin BuckeyeNation!!....O-H!!!!!!
Devin Smith had a HUGE night tonight. Those catches kept the game from going the other way
Man, that stadium was sooo quiet during the game! So what you will about PSU, but they were loud the entire time. MSU fans don't give anything to help that team at all! Still got the Best Damn Fans in the Land!
MSU fans don't give anything to help that team at all!
That's because MSU fans expect their team to "Sparty."
Compared to Happy Valley, it was like playing in a church.
Could read this to mean PSU has BDFITL.... but I think I know what you meant. Great win!
Here's the thing with the Buckeyes and the committee. How often have we heard over the years a variation on the following: "Their record might not show it, but there might not be a team in the country right now playing better than X?" In 2002, the national championship year, you might remember all our doubters were saying that about USC.
Well, this season that team is us. After we lost to Virginia Tech, I said that any chance we had at the playoff would require us to make the case that that game was inevitable for an inexperienced team with a quarterback who just 3 weeks before thought he'd be spending the season on the bench. Now we've proven that we've grown. I think it's still a longshot -- Bama losing obviously would have helped -- but I know we impressed anyone who saw us play tonight.
JTB is a baller. Oline really grew up tonight. I am glad Dontre rebounded from his mistakes, he could of been the goat if this game went side ways. I so wanted Bosa to get to Cook but the constant double teams freed up Bennett and co. Shot out to D. Grant. And Tom Herman proved he may be actually be smart after all.
....oh and before I forget, let me give a shout out to whomever made my favorite all-time Gameday sign....

Brilliant work my friend, just brilliant!
Oh. And guess what, doubting Thomases? We still have a shot at the playoff! We're not out of this yet!
Fuck Michigan State and their bitch ass fans I have had to listen to for a year. No Fly zone this motherfuckers!@!@!!!@#!$
Boom! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This post has been approved by Buckeyedude.
I love this post! But... I think you missed the characters covering up the swearing LMAO!!!!!
I'm a senior at osu and this has got to be the best win we've had in my tenure.
Go Bucks, I love you all
Does the 11W staff writers that virtually all picked MSU to win have to do pushups or something for losing faith? #NoFaith

Yes you are correct, they should give everyone 10 helmet stickers!

ESecPN already on the campaign to undermine our win and says we outlast Mich St. wow was a joke...yea no bias here....wonder what the bama lsu headline is
Ohio State looks sluggish against a mostly dead MSU. Nothing to see here.

"Satan Saban pulls out gritty OT win versus 3 loss Strong SEC West foe LSU."
"ND pulls off nailbiter loss on the road."
"Oregon has terrible uniforms scores a ton of garbage points to make it seem like a blowout."
"ND pulls off nailbiter loss on the road."
I know. That was kinda the joke I was trying to make: the spin by ESPiN will be ND "pulled off" a "great" loss.
Yep you're right, was pretty intoxicated last night when I read it wrong! My apologies
I like how our game was number 7 on the list on sportscenter....after the auburn game, Alabama game, tcu game, Oregon game, then two nba games, then a commercial break. They didn't mention Ohio state until after all that.
Just pride. Happiness. :-)
Just wanted to stop by to celebrate with you guys! It is so awesome to follow a team so close each year and be lucky enough to get rewarded with nights like tonight!!! God bless and Go Bucks!

Sportscenter headline: "OSU outlasts Michigan State"
Wow, one would think a dominant 2 1/2 ending quarters of football didn't occur. They just continue the script and enforcing the behavior for the aluminum foil hat wearing midwesterners.
Marshall needs to get 10-15 touches per game. The guy is too electric. Maybe they can take away some of Dontre's chances.
I've said this about 15,000 fricking times. It reminds me of the El Guapo vs. Rod Smith debates of a few years ago(I was a fan of El Guapo when it was uncool to be a fan of El Guapo, BTW.)
Jalin Marshall should be the man receiving punts and KOs. In addition to other nifty, tricky plays.
Dantonio "guarantees" a win.
Idea from Reddit user ImportedViolence
His even more crude version holds more comedic value.
LMAO @ this!^^^^^ I can almost hear Dantonio saying, "It's not over. It's just begun. Pride comes before the fall. Now let's eat."
Congrats to my fellow Buckeye fans, coaches, players, and anyone else that does or does not care about Buckeye football! I can't help but feel like a kid that just opened his Christmas presents, stuffed his belly with food, and is about to go to sleep with a grin on his face.
HUGE win for the Buckeyes. Our program, this staff, and team needed this win. I couldn't be more proud of them! Herman and Urban really came through. Big day for the Oline, JT, Zeke, and Devin! GO BUCKS!
I've already watched the replay on ESPN3 and will probably watch it again tomorrow :)
And it has now been over 10 seasons since OSU has lost to a B1G in back to back years.
How many MSU fans knew what was going to happen? Judging by the number that sold their seats...a lot. Or the mighty $ was too strong a pull in case they did lose. Sad, Spartans...Sad.
So much for "one of the best defenses in the country".
To address the elephant in the room:
What's the plan for Braxton going forward?
Heard rumors today about the idea of him transferring to FSU for grad school... not trying to spread those but just curious what you guys think is actually going to happen next year... Bring him back as starter? Late round draft pick? Transfer?
No matter what happens, I will always be a huge fan of Braxton and appreciate what he did for OSU football.
It's still too early to talk about this scenario. Let this season play out first.
Trust me! I'm an Engineer.
Lou Holtz might have just helped Ohio State in the eyes of the voters even more than the Buckeyes big win tonight! If you get a chance to watch the Final Verdict on College Football Final it is one of the greatest moments in OSU history. Everything Buckeye fans have ever wanted to tell Mark May was summed up in one sentence!…wait for it at the end. SPOILER ALERT: -Lou Holtz to Mark May "NO WONDER EVERYONE IN OHIO DISLIKES YOU!"
"Michigan Sucks" -Abraham Lincoln
Incredible win! So proud of every single player. Order has been restored!! :)
"It all goes so fast, and character makes the difference when it's close."
So proud to be a loyal fan to this amazing football team! It's too bad I couldn't go 2/2 and have the Utes knock off the Ducks... Nobody wants a piece of OSU... Gotta take care of Minni and the rest of our schedule and let everything play out
Ohio State up 18 late in the game, wins by 12. "OSU outlasts MSU." - Sportscenter Feed.
It's not like we dropped over 550 yards and nearly 50 points on a statistically dominant defense in their own backyard.
Oh ESPN, you're so terribly predictable. But seriously "outlasts?"
A Major step, on a Major night-stage, a Major ACCOMPLISHMENT with MAJOR Congratulations...young men, Coach, & staff !!!
We took it...to their house !
1. Barrett is a legit Heisman candidate.
2. Stop using the stat/talking point "Big Ten Regular Season Wins" - we don't need made up stat lines to highlight how good Ohio State is this year.
3. 300 yard passing games is now a regular event at Ohio State

Not going to lie but I was nervous when Eli Apple dropped the int that hit him right in the numbers. That was the same dive where Washington forced a fumble and we couldn't recover.

Good to see the other d linemen stepping up when bosa was getting double and triple teamed.
