Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.
66-17 go Bucks
I have to return some videotapes
TOSU 56 - 10
63-14 good guys.

66-14. Increased tempo adds to toll on Rutgers.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Freshman Qb first game on the road in the Shoe... Good luck 58-17 Buckeyes
JIM HARBAUGH PICKS HIS NOSE AND EATS IT
66-21 good guys. Not confident in one week being enough for the defense but they get a bit better.
70 - 7

Love the game over any team fandom.
I'll go 1-0, Bob
The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.
220, 221... Whatever it takes.
Nope, Not the Whole Damn State!
Yeah, aim high guys.

59-0. The bucks roll on offense, defense improves with fuller back, and we let up on Chris Ash a little.

I'm banking on some rain throughout the game.
CARDALE JONES! CARDALE! JONES, THE WHOLE STATE OF OHIO IS COUNTING ON CARDALE JONES!
55-24 Go Bucks!
I feel like this is "supposed" to be the best Rutgers team we've seen yet. I think the offense continues to roll, but we may see a leak from the defense here or there, mostly late, with the backups in.
Give me the good guys, 69-17
8 TDs, 2 FGs.
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
Are we going for 2 on 7 of those TD’s?
DagNabbit... 9 Tds... sorry.
9*7=63 +6 from 2 FGs is 69...
I shouldn't post so early in the morning.
I figured that’s what you meant but then I decided to think of other scenarios.
It works, I predicted a really wonky score last week and added that I felt the Buckeyes would get themselves a safety... But instead Little Bear just fell on it in the end zone and got a TD... Either way...
"Best" Rutgers team we've seen is kinda like saying 1946 was a "better" year for Germany and Japan than 1945-true-but you gotta consider where you were starting from....................
45-17...Rain will slow us down a bit.
tOSU 45 - 14
Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate.
63-0 Good guys.
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
69 - 13 Cool Guys.
Enjoying daily the back to back ttun beatdowns.
I have two responses based entirely upon the weather.
Tropical storm remnants steer clear of Columbus: 70-3
Monsoon season strikes: 49-0
Wait....are you saying that Haskins and the passing game cannot light up the Rutgers defense in a monsoon?
Challenge accepted....70 or bust this season /s
No such thing as a bad win
Rutgers isn't as good on offense as was Oregon State, but they have some playmakers. They're A LOT better on defense. The possibility of bad weather will neutralize our passing game a bit. I'm going to say 31-17 Buckeyes.
49 - 13 Buckeyes. Chris Ash is a friend, I bet we take it easy on RU and take our foot off the pedal early, like 2nd qtr early. Go Bucks!
'Vel primus, velcum primis'
We thought Tom Herman was a friend.
After that meeting with Saban, I never considered him a friend. He's a very competitive guy and only looks out for himself.
84 - 24
*Improvement on both sides of the ball
Who want's to be average.......ta Hell with that.
If you’re lucky enough to be a Buckeye you’re lucky enough.
56 - 17 with noticeable improvement by the back seven.
Our people are everywhere, Esto Dignus.
59-21 good guys
63 - 7.
70-17 (starting defense gives up 10 points)
63-21 Good guys
I would've sent a check but I already sealed up the envelope...
55-17 Bucks. Haskins ends the day early with 4 TDs, Weber and Dobbins 1 each, and the Defense gets another TD. Tack on 2 FGs somewhere in there as well.
"The Edge is where average stops and elite begins"
41 to 17, Good Guys.
Rutgers is certainly a better team than Oregon St, but not much better. Their defense looked solid against a really bad Texas St team, Texas St is likely worse than Oregon St.
And as bad as they are Rutgers still lost the TO margin 3 to 4 and their young QB threw 3 picks for a 115 QB rating.
They ran decently but not spectacular at 4.7 per att but also had a fumble and the QB ran once for 2 yards and was sacked once
So even as bad as our D may have looked at times, you have thinnk they start to clean some of that up and the pressure Basa and crew can apply to this kid may lead to a couple TO's.
Rutgers did look good on D but again Texas ST,,,so who knows.
My guess is we dont quite get to 77 as Rutgers is better defensively than Oregon St but that Rutgers offense may not be much better than the Beavers, so lets go with 56-17
My best guess, 55-17.
I think Rutgers Defense will be better than Oregon State's, also I think our Defense will play better than the did in week one, but they're still young so still not perfect yet. Offense will look great, Defense will look much better, the Buckeyes will improve overall this week and look good heading into TCU week.
59-10. Chris Ash finally scores a point against the Bucks.
Tom Brady lost to John Cooper. Never forget.
68-10 good guys
Offense continues to roll. Defensive sloppiness gets largely cleaned up (big plays and penalties). Rutgers hasn't scored on OSU in the last 2 meetings...bound to change. I think they probably gets a FG in the 1st half and find the endzone once in the 2nd half.

As there is film, Rutgers slows the Dwayne train down a bit. Buckeye's back seven continues to struggle.
Too much time spent at the North Heidelberg rather than the classroom. SSD 68-72
63-14 (good guys)
I don't live in Alaska anymore
Our defense won't be completely gelled, but it will take a step forward against a not prolific Rutgers offense. Meanwhile, Rutgers simply doesn't have the personnel to keep Haskins and Co from scoring at will. The only reason we don't hit 70 again is that the first team offense it taken off the field early 3rd quarter.

55-3 if both Fuller and Borland play. If not, 55-17.
62 - 7

55 seems to be a popular number.
45-10 Bucks I'm banking on some shitty weather.
The combined score of the last two meetings against Rutgers is 114-0, advantage THE Ohio State.

I predicted 58-10 last week and was wrong both ways...something keeps telling me that 58-10 is going to be the final score, but I'm just not sure which game that will be; so...I will keep picking 58-10 till the boys figure it out for me!
66 - 6 Mama says Foosball is da devil's game!!
I am here for the same reason you are.
I am curious how good Rutgers offense is and how well the defense cleans up some of the mistakes this week. So, I am being optimistic on that front. The offense should do well either way though, unless the weather is a disaster and keeps the scoring lower.
Rutgers shouldn't be in the B1G at all. They suck in football and basketball. Only here to sell a cable channel to New Yorkers who don't want it.
Toledo or about 5 other MAC teams would probably be a better opponent.
"It all goes so fast, and character makes the difference when it's close."
63-0. Rutgers always has trouble scoring on us and I think Day will keep his foot on the gas, so this could easily get out of hand and my score might be conservative. I'd love to see something like 84-0. I just want them to hammer people every single week and never let up.
I'll go 52 - 17 Buckeyes.

46-10 Buckeyes. 77 was only necessary last week b/c Oregon St. continued to score.
Day won't run it up on Ash.
59-20 Buckeyes. I think the defense improves, but still not to the level that is expected.
70-20. Offense rolls, defense looks better but still struggless
Class of 81
A lot of rain. A lot of running. Rutgers has trouble moving the ball. Bucks move it at will. Haskins pulled earlier due to comfy lead and conditions.
56-7 Defense has something to prove but the reserves will give up one TD, First string will score 6 TDs while the 2nd team adds two more.
44-17 is my prediction. I am a long time lurker and just signed up. I wanted to post a forum question to see if Vico still did the weekly viewing guide? Any advice on how to find that out?
ND is North Dakota not Notre Dame!
Our former member now writer has picked up the ball and is running with the Viewing Guide weekly. Welcome aboard NB - glad to have you on the boards. Join the PL - it's worth every penny.

As I read that, I'm kind of left wondering which one is my game of the week.
New Day for OSU. Same noon for TTUN.
Thank you Seattle Linga! Appreciate the advice!

I have a bad feeling this one will be close.. We are looking ahead and Chris Ash is a very good coach... and the weather will be an issue... We turn it over early... are down at half and pull away in the 4th... hope I am way wrong on this...
“And in the night of death, hope sees a star and listening love hears the rustle of a wing.”
Down at half to Rutgers? That’s a bold statement there...
You and I are on the same wavelength here. I’ve got a feeling that this one is going to inspire quite a bit of heartburn in Buckeye Nation. I’m calling it: this is the game where fans are going to wish that we still had Joe Thomas Barrett IV running the show at QB. We’ll win, but Haskins is going to look far from a Heisman candidate and we will play very sloppily altogether.
Rain all day, probably slow both teams down some. I'll go 45-14
Just about 25 hours til kickoff - get em in before it's tooooo late.
7 TD's , 2 FG's for the Bucks. Rutgers gets some garbage time points.
Trust me! I'm an Engineer.
Secondary players get quality reps and Martell puts on a show.
Just a few hours away from kickoff. Looks like fans are loving us scoring over 50 points today.
