As a Buckeye fan since 1967 only two years had a happy ending w/NC ie 2002 and 2014 since 1968. 2014 was kinda a miracle er divine intervention. And 2002 Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Penn State, Purdue, Illinois, ttun and Miami were nail biters. It's a longgg season.

So twice in (50) years. Indeed, 1995 Nebraska comes along once every eternity iow an anomaly.

For the record, I don't see much, if any of the above scenarios happening, but if it does go down this way, please don't try to find me. I am just a sports writer. 

Good luck with that !!

Seattle, your post is significant in answering your question be cause in that quote from James, the content reveals James own motivation.

Consider:  does any other poster's post.... "DO THIS TO US"?  

Answer:  only inasmuch as we "let" it.   ;-{)}   IDK that you were 'one of those'... 'allowers' we hear about on occasion.   Lol

One other option:  if there's a 'bad' post, then the one who sees this 'bad' already has the power to convert it to 'good'!

You've modelled this after the 2011 season. Urban Meyer is not Luke Fickell. I think Meyer has proven that he'll make any team work. He'd find a quarterback. He turned a fullback into a linebacker late in 2012 and finished out an undefeated season. UFM ain't goin 7-6.

HS
BuckeyeCrusdader's picture

To be fair the B1G is considerably better than it was in 2012, also TCU in Texas is a much tougher game than Cal in The Horseshoe. And if he Modelled the article does that mean he's moving it to Baltimore?

I agree though, 7-6 is very unlikely. If the season is a disaster of injuries I still see 8-4.

I think worst case scenario is like the '15 season where we come out of the gate, we are winning, but Haskins doesn't look like a Heisman front-runner and all the whispers about what should've happened between he and Burrow start up.

Everyone needs to be patient if DH starts off a little rocky and remember that an ugly win still goes in the correct column.

Ole Buckeye's picture

2015 frustrating to watch?  Dude, don't you remember Tressell ball? 

It was really tough to watch. Non-football experts, like me, could  predict practically every  play call. 

Then we went right into poor Coach Fickell's year and really, he had an uphill battle.

Urban Meyer shows up, and on the first touchdown scored he goes for two and gets it. 

THAT told me we would never be frustrating to watch again. 

Yeah, the 2015 MSU game was bad stuff, and the Clemson games.... otherwise, it's been a great 6 seasons. 

HS
BuckeyeCrusdader's picture

Tressel had ups and downs. I think some games he gave Bollman too much credit. I think it got worse when Bollman called plays for Fickell... The 2011 game vs MSU I was in C deck with my Dad.. I told him what the Buckeyes were running for 3 straight plays (before they punted). When a fan can see your alignment and body position of players and know exactly what's coming.. the opposing defense sure as hell knows too.

HS
Hovenaut's picture

I remember Tresselball well.

Where the ball is given to Dave, and where TP keeps it on 3rd and long.

2015 was the year where XbraX had to get his touches, the ball was going to be distributed land and air, etc.

NorthBerg's picture

Despite having perhaps the best collection of talent in all of college football, the 2018 Buckeyes have the potential of three or more losses. The culprits may be TCU, PSU, Purdue, Sparty, and (gasp!) TSUN.  My pessimism is based on the inexperience factor at QB, O-line, and defensive back seven. Throw in the loss of Asst. Coach Coombs and having to acclimate to two new coaches, the defense may be the achilles heel to OSU's season.

The Bucks may still find the magic of 2014, but those seasons seem to be few and far between for OSU despite having awesome talent and great Head Coach. The football gods seem to favor Tuscaloosa over old Columbus towne.

HS
terryin20878's picture

Worst scenario is, we lose every game.  But why speculate?  Accidents happen, and they can happen to any team.  Michigan and Maryland both saw that last year.

Also, "revenge" is the dumbest concept in sports.  Penn State wants revenge?  For what?  Us beating them this past season?  That was revenge for them beating us the season before, motivated by revenge for us beating them the year before that.  You play the game, one team wins, the other loses.  It's not like we won by spiking their gatorade.

Have you played competitive sports? Thinking emotion and motivation play no part in sports makes me think you haven’t. 

HS
Nutinpa's picture

A haunting yet humorous look at what could happen this year, further proving the breaking of August camp cannot arrive soon enough!!

So....as a counter-punch to James' nightmare scenario and to put my fellow posters in a better mood, I offer the following:

Game 1 vs. Oregon St:  Buckeyes roll and the Offense sets game 1 production records, winning 59-10.  This Forum lights up into a near war with JTB haters posting and trolling "I told you so's" to the JTB loyalists as Haskins has a near perfect game and is unstoppable.  First time ever, MODs shut down celebratory winning threads as the Haskins  vs. JT threads almost melt down the server.

Game 2 vs. Rutgers:  Buckeyes come down to earth.  After a flat first half playing an inspired road Rutgers, team, Buckeyes roll to an easy victory in the 2nd half, 45-17.    Very limited playing time for Tate and he lets the media know he is disappointed after the game.  Meyer says "he'll talk to him -- we win as a team."  

Game 3 vs. TCU:  Haskins and Offense have a flat game, but Buckeyes D dominates a young, but talented TCU team. Bosa sets himself up for Heisman talk and ESPN talking heads debate again, if a Defensive player can ever win if N Suh could not.  Buckeyes win a much lower scoring game than anticipated, 27-14, but are rated # 2 after the win.  The entire south prepares to seceed again. 

Game 4 vs Tulane:  Meyer makes uncharacteristic promise that team will NOT look past Tulane to Penn State on the heels of emotional but unsatisfying win vs. TCU.   Buckeyes make a statement.  Blow out Tulane and Tate scores 2 TDs in the 4th quarter.  All eyes on Penn State next week. 

Game 5 vs. Penn State:   Happy Valley is a seething mess as they await the Buckeyes.  Most talking heads favor Penn State home.  Lee Corso puts on a JoePA head on the Game Day set.  Fans go wild.  Buckeyes come out inspired and after a shaky and rattled start by Haskins, Dobbins and Weber settle in.  A brutal, physical game sees our good guys win 27-21.  Franklin takes some risks with his offense and they backfire.  Meyer looks ashen and exhausted at post game presser but glad his boys won.  Wants to get the hell out of there. 

Game 6 vs. INDY:  Buckeyes are flat after Penn State game.  Come back from a deficit at Halftime to blow out Indiana in 4th quarter.  Tate gets only a few, token touches.  He ain't happy again.

Game 7 vs. Minny:  Lots of hype.  ESPN does a feature on PJ Fleck to see how he gets his team to "row their boats" and have a mindset to beat Ohio State.  Everyone loves him.  Minny comes out inspired, but Buckeye defense holds strong.  Haskins gets knicked and in relief Tate leads Buckeyes to 3 TDs.  Haskins is seen telling Meyer and coaches he can play but they opt to keep his foot in a protective boot while Tate shocks the stadium with Minny having no answer. 

Game 8 vs. Purdue:  The whole world is saying upset.  Brohm's Offense has been really explosive.  Buckeyes score off of 2 Purdue TOs in first half.  Overpower Purdue in the 2nd half.  Brohm says after the game, "if there is a better cf team than Ohio State, he hasn't seen it yet".   Buckeyes come out ranked # 2 in cf playoff scenario.  More southern states prepare for a charge at the Mason-Dixon line.

Game 9 vs. Nebraska:  More upset talk only this time featuring Scott Frost.  Nebraska plays way over their heads....makes mistakes in Overtime and Buckeyes win 30-27.   

Game 10 vs. Michigan State:   Second toughest game of the year next to Penn State; Physical and really chippy;  Meyer threatens to bench the next player who gets a personal foul.   Buckeyes win their second OT game in two weeks 24-21.  Defense bails team out with win.

Game 11 vs. Maryland:  Lather, Rinse. Repeat, only this time with DJ Durkin.  Buckeyes win handsomely despite some dirty play from MD players targeting Haskins since he spurned them last minute.  Meyer brings Tate in relief and O thrives with him under center and wins handily. 

Game 12 ...THE GAME:  Biggest hyped game since 2006 in the Shoe.  Buckeyes win another nail biter and set up a shot at BIG title vs. Wisky in December. 

So....not saying this will happen either....but in the spirit of  the 4th, here is a happier scenario to read over a Holiday beer!!

This nightmare scenario is just the 'negativity' Facade of our narratives since the 2014 'kids' went all the way.  If we peek behind this traditional curtain, we 'see' it's not REALLY our fault... injuries, flukes, and a couple folks 'out of their mind'  did it.

2015 Urban tries to put new wine in an old wineskin [his offensive preferences].  Didn't work then, doesn't now... not on our expertise, but on... Good Authority.

Ex:  notice the absence of the obvious:  in 2014, which of the 3 QBs won it?  In 2018 we 'lose one' at the start and...it's over.

====>   OFFENSE:  create, seize, keep exploiting The INITIATIVE by attacking relative weaknesses.  Multiple options - credible threats in the opponents' mind - each play.

====>  DEFENSE:  attack and disrupt them... before they do it to us.

====>  all 'on the merits' ... zero on 'goto', 'stars', #touches.  It's an advantaging act, not a quota system or numbers game.  And finally, 'the idea' is to DECEIVE the opponent... not our selves!

...and it all, this entire 2018 season rundown that we just read, goes back to urban’s decision to start Hawkins (or whatever his name is) over Joe Borrow at qb!  No need to watch the 2018 buckeye season...you just read it.  How different it would be with an NFL ready qb like Burrow under center than what we now have.  7-6 sounds about right to me, except I predict a lose to Nebraska too.  Folks, watch a real quarterback, from Ohio no less, this season and tune your TVs to LSU football.  Give me crap now, but 5 short months you will be singing a different tune.  Great article telling us the truth of what is ahead.  Won’t it be something to see UM celebrating in the Shoe and few hours later watching the LSU fans carry Joe Burrow off the field in victory and toward a playoff selection for the Tigers!

I have zero faith in your ability to come up scratch together $100 to pay me.   This game isnt even going to be close.  Trace McShortly is exposed for the 5-10 under avg'ed arm QB he is this season.

You obviously have no clue about college football. You’re just a homer. Go read all the magazines and see what they think. Go on. Try it. 

Let’s get a taker to have us PayPal the $100. Then they can send the winner the &200. I’ll even throw in $10 for a person to be the mediator. Come on chick sht!

And why do you continue to refuse to answer the season ticket question?

Phil Steele has the Buckeyes in the playoff again.  Im a proud graduate of tOSU Son. 

Gonna be lotsa unhappy people wearing white at midnight on 9/29.  PSU's best team ever was 1994. LOL.  

Your attempted belittling say much more about you than they do me.

 I meant read what all the preseason prognosticators are  saying.  Don’t be that dumb.  What are they saying about Penn State and McSorley?  Please answer   

Come on. Bet me!!   Chickenshit ! Penn St  isn’t what they were last year but they’re gonna be pretty good! 

 And you still refuse to answer the question about how to get season tickets.  Are you going to answer Me  saying that you doubted that I am a season ticket holder.

This Buckeye team will be better than last year's?  So lets do the math....

This Buckeye team is better and this PSU team is worse = Buckeye Win

Wow!! Another brain stumper you figured out! Woo hoo. Watch out Phil Steele!

What does all the I meant read what preseason prognosticators are  say? What are they saying about Penn State and McSorley?  Please answer   

Come on. Bet me!!   Chickenshit ! Penn St  and 10!

Do I need to check with the ticket office about how I get my season tickets? They weren’t willed to me so I may not be getting them?

Your comments and name calling say way more about you than they do me. 

Bucks v PSU is easy money!   Spread is already now 5 and will be a TD by kickoff.

It’s 5 and will be 6. Then give me 10 for $100 chicken shit. 

What are prognosticators saying about Penn State and McSorley? Why won’t you answer?

Do I need to check with the ticket office about how I get my season tickets? They weren’t willed to me so I may not be getting them? Why won’t you answer? Because you made a another stupid comment about it with no knowledge.

HS

Keep on trolling.  Another PSU fan who thinks his team is relevant, reality is PSU hasnt been relevant since 1985.   PSU should have stayed indy and could have continued to beat up temple every season!

Nice response. You are weak and pathetic in your responses.   2 OSU degrees here and 35 year season ticket holder. Sorry dude!

How do I get season tickets? Willed to me?

Giving me PSU and 10 for $100?

$100 that PSU doesn’t lose 4 regular games?

$100 McSorley ends up with a better passer rating than Haskins. 

HS

Sorry, your Columbus State online all the way.

I feel sorry that other people spoke to you like that and it makes you feel like a bigger person.    

Go Bucks!  PSU will always be looking up to Urban and Jimmy.

How much did JokePa really know?   That is the PSU we all know you know.

$100 For each:

- PSU doesn’t lose 4, give me them and 10, McSorley has better passer rating than Haskins 

You still have not responded to season tickets. How do you get them? Through wills?

Jim Harbaugh has a great chance at getting his first win in The Game in 2018, thanks in part to a stout defense.

Doubtful, but in any case-this still applies:

You Got Barbecue Back There!?!?!?!

If Tate Martell is the QB this season, it will not go well. With Burrow or Haskins Ohio State will be in the Big Ten Championship game undefeated looking to secure a high bid in the playoff.

Sure, there will be wins when the dominate O-Line makes the zone read a piece of cake.

Well, I'm pretty sure it won't be Burrow. I really don't think people on here are giving Tate enough credit. There is a reason he was the National Player of the year in high school. Wait till he gets in a game where they are not playing two-hand  ..one-hand touch.

HS
Dillon G's picture

He was player of the year because kids in high school are no match for his athletic ability. And his ability to make defenders miss is exceptional. If Haskins goes down, I'll be all about that Zone read.

That's a nightmare. Losses to Purdue and Maryland plus ttun in the same season?
Urban isn't Cooper, thank God.
Undefeated going into PSU game. Win that and it's undefeated for sure.

 Undefeated for sure if we beat Penn State ?

 How about Nebraska, Michigan State, and Michigan? Those are slam dunks?

Good grief. With all due respect to this writer what the heck is this?? Stopped after the Orgen State doomsday scenario with an injury to a kid.  Not very cool imho.

He wasn't calling for an injury, it's just an offseason read, no biggie. Besides everyone on here has talked about the what ifs of a QB injury.
