It kills me to go against my Horned Frogs, but I’ll say OSU wins

48-27

there is never any doubt in this game, but TCU does put up a fight and keeps OSU from scoring 60;  cause if they can, they will.

48-27. TCU hangs with the Bucks for two and a half quarters.

Tom Brady lost to John Cooper. Never forget.

HS
Dominus's picture

That's my thinking precisely. The Horned Frogs play the Buckeyes tough for the first two quarters or so as the Buckeyes adjust to Gary Patterson's wrinkles and trick plays both offensively and defensively. The second half will be an entirely different game as the Buckeyes adjust completely and the defensive line wears down the TCU offensive line while the Buckeye offensive line starts to flatten the worn-out, lighter but speedy TCU defensive line.

I think that the Buckeyes beat the spread with most of the TCU scoring coming in the first half.

Buckeyes win, 38-17.

44-27, bucks.

I'm expecting 5 TDs for our offense and 1 defensive TD plus a FG. I think Turpin will get a return TD on us, and I think some defensive lapses will lead to a long TD or two for TCU. I expect our defense to be very stout in the red zone, leading to a few field goals. All in all I'm expecting a fairly close game with the Bucks pulling away in the second half.

Considering TCU had a smash mouth battle in the trenches with SMU... I doubt it will come to that with them.

55 -17 Buckeyes, in a game that's close for about 6 minutes. Then Monday, I'll get to hear on the radio how underwhelming Ohio State is. Gotta love the south.

By the way, for some reason, the radio assclowns down here have a hard-on for Wisconsin. Not sure why.

RunEddieRun1983's picture

Seems to me the OL is going to be able to move TCU's DL off the spot and make some running lanes for Weber and Dobbins. I think Weber has the big day this time going for 150+ and 2 TDs.

Haskins will dial it back a little with "just" a 3 TD performance, but between the 20's will be electric. I think 320+ yards and 3 TDs.

Why do you use a 2011 Wisconsin team as some kind of trump card in all of your comments? That makes no sense for a reason TCU might beat OSU.

elgolfdog's picture

Cbus, I WISH I was a Templar knight, but no. I have nothing to be arrogant about, just confident.

Thatzuh, I use the wisky team because that is the only common thread our 2 programs have (unless you want to use the 1957 TCU victory over OSU).  Beyond that, there are only a few limited items that we possess over the buckeyes....better coach, newer stadium.  Beyond that we only have 2 national titles, a handfull of conference banners, a couple of famous NFL players (Bob Lily, Davey O'Brien, Andy Dalton, Slingin' Sammy Baugh, Mel Renfro) and a historic hatred of texas that you show with michigan.

But while we're at it, thanks for letting me post with you guys before the game.  It's a blast sharing your comments and opinions with other Horned Frogs. Your fan base is football-intelligent, and passionate about your team. Hopefully we'll see you guys Saturday!

Ahh Saturday's picture

1) forget the “neutral site” nonsense. This is a home game for TCU. 2) TCU will use 2014 for motivation and it will work. I expect them to come out with a chip on their shoulder and more intensity than our Buckeyes. 3)  This is a significant step up in competition for both teams. I’m sure that TCU realizes that. I’m not sure our players do. 4) Gary Patterson is as good a one-game coach as there is. He’ll have his boys ready. 5) Running QB + inexperienced LBs = 60 minutes of headaches. 

This game will be much closer than people seem to think, but I think the Buckeyes just have too much talent around the field. Buckeyes win 31-30. 

HS

40-20. TCU keeps it close until middle of the third.

Great opportunity for Ohio State to go down to Texas and look good in front of a Texas crowd in order to steal even more recruits from Texas. Wasn't this the while point in scheduling TCU? I'm far more pleased that since TCU backed out of the home and home that it was decided to play this game in TX.

52-13

bucks score on two quick drives then TCU makes it interesting 14-7, but then at the end of the half it’s 31-7.  TCU gets a field goal after the half to make it 31-10 then holds us to a three and out only to drive down for another field goal to make it 31-13, TCU fans feel a comeback starting and feel like if only they could have avoided the third down sacks by Bosa and Young they may have scored TDs and brought it within 10.  Haskins then hits Dixon on a long TD to make it 38-13 and the little bit of hope fades away as TCU fans start heading out towards the end of the third.  We stop them three and out and the 1s make it 45-13 at the beginning of the fourth.  Tater leads the team on a long drive to score midway through the fourth we stop them and then run out the clock.

I think talent prevails in this one. I'm not overly worried about Haskins first road game because OSU should be able to run the ball pretty well to take some pressure off. I don't see TCU being able to run the ball much and they aren't great passing.

42-17. but its pretty close through half.

It is possible for TCU to make this a game or even take home a victory. I believe the Frogs are a legit 15th ranked team. The question is to whether OSU is a legit top 4 team in the nation. If OSU doesn’t win by 2 TDS then they aren’t right now. If they are a legit top 4 team they’ll easily beat the spread. I think OSU is a legit top 4 team- Final Score: OSU 45- TCU 21.

HS

OSU 41

TCU 24

I think our defense is going to be good but still has some work to do. TCU has some solid players on offense and a talented dual-threat QB so they will score some points. However, Haskins and our offense will put up 41 and have no trouble moving the ball.
