Here comes the turnaround!...right?
Paralyze resistance with persistence. - Woody Hayes
still a "turnaround". we threw it to nebraska's defense, so we're forced to turn around and play defense.
somebody end it for me pls
First drive will be telling
The special teams have been great!
Biggest half of the year
Those who stir the shit pot should have to lick the spoon.
Get ready for another penalty
Those are still one of my favorite alternate jerseys
Hold onto the damn ball
People dont want to hear this but Nebraskas offense is the real deal. Had they not shot themselves in the foot they probably only have a loss or two this year. Martinez is going to give the Big Ten fits for years to come... hopefully our offense stops turning over the ball because Nebraska cant stop us.
Fucking calm down Greg it's Nebraska
Lifetime vs. UM: L 8-1, C 7-0, T 4-0
I think losing out on Knoxville killed schiano’s spirit.
I feel like all the air has been let out of my 2018 football
That's what playoff teams do
I really can’t believe that this is Ohio State football. I just can’t.
I hate seeing Campbell running that stupid sweep play, and then the pass behind the LoS....
~ The Buck Guy
Yeah not sure what that is. But Parris needs to go North instead of East West either way. Very week play.
Never sit Dobbins. Ever.
The black unis are to mourn the season that should have been.
Three in a row.
" We gotta keep running the ball"?? No - you do what is working. He gets too obsessed with specific tasks and making a pointless point
Keep dobbis in
Dobbins should finish the game.
Haskins shows no excitement.
Ok let’s score here and turn this around.
"I love football. I think its the most wonderful game in the world and I despise to lose" - Woody Hayes
I think it's safe to say we probably finish the season 8 - 4 at best.
Again ... losing to a team we should be easily beating ... this time at home.
Again ... Meyer and his coaching staff have made no significant changes to anything in the last 2 weeks. They have clearly done nothing to motivate the team to excel. We really miss you Coach Combs and your energy / passion, your coaching technique and your recruiting!
Again ... Meyer always talks a good game about holding the team accountable but he and his staff make no real personnel changes. No real adjustment. Saban does. Dabo does. Lincoln Riley does.
Again … the team is playing with no energy / passion, no attitude and no nastiness.Again ... the offensive line is not getting their pad level down and again playing with no real attitude or nastiness.
Again ... the defense missing tackles and giving up big plays again. One bright spot Baron Browing and Keandre Jones … but will they be given starting jobs to showcase their ability? No.
Again ... missed assignments in the secondary and playing way too far off the receiver.
It’s halftime let's see if Meyer and the team make any adjustments.
We need a new center
Go Bucks! Would love them to roll in the 2nd half. My husker loving husband is loving this. Ugh
Here comes the turnaround on offense...
Live from Nowhere in Particular....
Not nearly as excited about our top recruiting classes if our coaches can't seem to get them playing up to their potential.
From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I shall not put.
Should have been a deeper route there
Am I a bad fan if I'm debating continuing to watch or to go rake leaves and clean up dog poop? I guess the dog poop isn't getting any fresher.
Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege.
Tyrion: A wedding.
Third turnover of the day. Hello dog poop
I’m disappointed in this game, but holy shit this is great stuff
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
Don’t rake them up mow them into the yard as mulch. Great nutrition for the grass. Dog doo not so much.
Too many leaves right now to mulch, and too much dog poop to ignore -- I worked lots of OT this week and didn't get as much cleaned up as it happened.
I wanted to get my hours in during the weekday so I could watch this game ....
Surprised that wasn't flagged, we had 2 linemen nearly 15 yards downfield
Both guards suck today. Getting blown up
Stop running Campbell. Just stop.
The end around to Campbell still not working
It rarely has.
STOP GOING BEHIND! Go forward!!!
Meyer is not having fun. This is his last year IMO.
Campbell literally does NOTHING but run to the sideline
Par for the course today :(
Haskins stared him down there. Bad
I knew that was going to get picked when he threw to where he was staring the entire time
Well, there's that...
Great pass. Dang Webber
That wasn't Weber's fault. Haskins stared down the receiver from the snap, and threw it anyway
The jet sweep to to Campbell does not work! STOP!
Those who say they can and those who say they can't are both right. Which one are you?
Welp, that feels about right.
Hahaha did I misread his lips or did Ryan Day just hit us with a "what the fuck"
"Medicine is not a science" - Leo Spaceman
— Eleven Warriors (@11W) November 3, 2018
What the fuck was he looking at?
I don't know about you guys, but Ohio State football has been tough to watch most of this year and last year as well. I definitely don't expect to win every game. However, I would like to watch an Ohio State game and not feel depressed afterwards.
Oh my lord
should have led receiver to the back corner.
Pariss Campbell’s first instinct is too always run backwards. Not so sure why Urban always thinks running him on sweeps is such a great idea
come back and get on me for this if im wrong, but i wont be...this game is over
Now Haskins has checked out. We're gonna lose this one.
Just following his coach’s lead.
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing." - Abraham Lincoln
Cool, another turnover. The blowout is about to start.
Wish our offense would quit playing down to our defense's level. I think the team really lacks leadership.
Bad choice...wow...this really not our day.
"I spent 90 percent of my money on women and drink. The rest I wasted." - George Best
This is extremely painful to watch..
The future is bright at Ohio state.
If they score this game is over.
Have you seen this defense. Nebraska is gonna score.
Lol. I mean what else can you do but laugh at this shit?
Urbie, your QB doesn’t have it today, are you going to see if maybe the next guy can get hot? WWSD?
Ok..offense showed some life. Let's see if the defense can do the same..
DB made a great read there, but Haskins should either have never thrown it there or at least put less air under it.
But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. So much darker. And so much madder. And so much better. -Dr. Who, "Love and Monsters"
There was double coverage, don't throw inside, throw outside
I’m with you. Haskins is being forced to be perfect though and he likely injured after that hit. Hill fumbling didn’t do us any favors nor the protection on his back side when he was hit from behind. Trust me, Haskins is the ONLY reason we are 7-1.
Well, I'm off to Lowes...………….I'll check the scores tonight
PUT IN TATE!
Call for a blackout, wear black uniforms then paint the end zones to camouflage your opponent.
Haskins should stay in school and get his degree, he'll need it!!
I am typically OSU to the end but this team is bad. The defense is bad and the offense looks poor out there. Not holding onto the ball and poor decisions. They deserve to lose this game. Even if they win, it is clear this is not a playoff team or the best team in the Big Ten.
I was hoping they would get better but here we are.
Wow, I think this is the worst effort I’ve ever seen...
It'd be sweet if Tate comes in and balls out.
And whoever is calling the plays needs to stop having Campbell run. Teams are into it
This is completely absurd..un.. fucking.. believable..START BENCHING PEOPLE THAT CAN'T GET IT DONE!!! God dammit Urban!!
When it rains, it pours.
Let's Go BUCKEYES!!!!!
Terrible pass, but all set up by another beautiful backwards run by Campbell on 1st down in the red zone.. People wanting Day as head coach better think about what you are asking for
Even Haskins has gotten worse over the season.
I have been saying he is not NFL ready, not even close.... He can be but he must come back... Can't believe people are saying that he is NFL ready..
One man that has a mind and knows it can always beat ten men who haven't and don't.
He’s gone. And he’s sitting out the bowl game.
Probably the Alamo Bowl against Boston College or some ishh
No consistency. What the heck has this team been doing all year?
This team absolutely blows. Day is an idiot for running the sweep with Campbell. Schiano is an idiot for playing Borland and Werner. Haskins is forcing the ball all over the place. Meyer is crying like a little biatch all the time but going absolutely nothing. Weber can’t block or break a tackle. Victor is lazy and yet urban says he looks great. Etc etc
Wasn’t that long ago that OSU was on the verge of taking a 23-7 lead...
Yikes. On all fronts.
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
Been saying this, Haskins will be the last pocket passer Urban Mayer will ever have under center.... He wants a QB that can run and pass, Martinez a true freshman is giving us fits and Urban wanted that dude.
Except he has recruited at least two more, one of which is here already.
When are they going to spy Martinez
That would require an athletic, disciplined LB
And a coach that can teach them.
lol That defensive line is getting worse and worse as the game goes on.
Just gashing us at this point
They are just going to keep running it down the D’s throat
No heart, no passion, no toughness and no leadership on or off the field. This team looks like a team that has been losing for years. We are in big trouble.
Always a great day to be a Buckeye!
This team has quit.
Just let them drive it down our throats
I really wish I could look for any good part of this team, but there's just no hope. I really think we need to rebuild. I mean clear house.
Where's Tommy Togiai? Get him in there!
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
YES and the other DTs!!!
This is all just tough to watch. Thinking of raking leaves... just too painful.
Raking leaves ain't much fun either.
Chase young done playing?
"Life is not about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. THATS HOW WINNING IS DONE!!" - Rocky Ballboa
Tuff with a typical tackle ten yards down field. These guys aren’t big ten caliber. They deserve to lose because our best is not on the field. I don’t care what the coaches say this is not our best and their freaking blind!!!
I hate feeling like this, but I do. This loss is 100% on Meyer. He has done nothing to motivate this team or his staff. He has quit on this team, and now they’re quitting on him.
That should have been a TD by Spielman
Wade was burnt bad....really bad
Again, LBs stunt at LOS and have no impact. Lucky drop.
Thank goodness Martinez missed on that pass. Again, only thing stopping the Huskers are the Huskers
Feel bad for those who wastrd their money going to this one.
Wow we have to hope for Nebraska to screw up to have a chance to best Nebraska.....
should never come to that at all
We can always count on a Spielman to make a nice play for the Buckeyes.
If they sputter in this drive I’m out.
Thank you Nebraska for shooting yourself in the foot there.
If Nebraska didn’t keep shooting them selves in the foot they would be blowing osu out
They dodged a bullet there
#67 is getting destroyed today. Where is #2 on defense???
Could be an interesting offseason.
things need to change
What should happen: Dobbins in, no jet sweeps.
What will happen: bad Weber run, bad jet sweep, 3rd and long
9 consecutive red zone appearances without a touchdown.
Dobbins had a td run in the red zone earlier
I really thought we would have tightened some of these things up after the ass kicking and bye week, but it's like nothing ever happened.
Sooo do they make the outback bowl or is it the pinstripe bowl?
Pigskins & Porkrinds
Blue Bonnet Bowl
Thank god Haskins won the September and October Heisman!
The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced
I think we all expected a tough game versus Nebraska before the season started. I know that I did. They have a key injury early and lost their quarterback. His first game back was against those shitheads up north, and he just wasn’t ready to play. But now they got him back and they are the team they probably would’ve been. I still think we’re going to pull this game out. But a close game is not that much of a surprise to me. Including the fact that the betting line in Vegas went much towards Nebraska..Those wiseguys know what they’re doing.
I love Haskins and in no way think he is the issue with team but maybe they need to Martell a few series per game to make teams respect the quarterback run.
I love BB Landers but we have got to plug up the inside running lanes and I don't think he has enough to do it (at least not today) and the DEs have to stay outside on the QB keep.
If Nebraska’s receivers keep dropping wide open passes we have a chance
UFM has lost his fire.. He looks so defeated and broken at least once during every single game. If your leader acts like this, you certainly cannot expect those under him to act any different. I definitely am not condoning #FireMeyer - more like #InspireMeyer. He needs to get his edge back that he has slowly been losing since the CFP Championship year.
Wtf Haskins grow a pair
Now take a deep shot!
Someone better teach Dwayne how to slide
Nice run Weber. No fumble?
Sike. He just did
Wow, a Weber run with some heart? Where did that finally come from? lol Go Bucks!
Guys that’s Haskins sixth INT in like a gazillion throws and TDs. Give him a break. He’s already been our hero this year. He can’t play D too.
Thats Haskins 3rd turnover in 3 quarters
He has it down now.
Haskins running is painful
I'm sorry but if you can't run in the wide open field we need to put in Martel
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes
These guys REFUSE to run north and south
The Michigan kid is still ballin'
Please don't let Weber play another snap..
I miss having a running QB
“It is now my duty to completely drain you” RIP Kurt
Always been a fan or a dual threat. But I also love Dwayne. He just doesn't fit our scheme because they don't know how to use him.
Woody wouldn’t let Weber see the field again. Urban is as soft as this team. Hold the damn football!!
Tight end getting work
Farrell is the best thing to happen to this team over the past few games. Am I right?
Dobbins in....let’s go!!!
Hurry up offense go
Two good runs or not. Sit Weber's ass down. 1 fumble is too much, 2 is grounds for benching!
Then what do you do about a fumble & an INT.?
Where is the tempo???
Finally see some beef near the goalline
Well what do you know? Put in a heavy set near the goal line and run people over.
WTG Dobbins! We need more of that. Go Bucks!
Defense do something
Yeah, we can dream right? lol But for real, let's
Now that's how you pick up short yardage!
TE with a great block there. I want to see buckeyes fired up. Show some fight!
Give Wyatt Davis more PT. He just mauled his guy.
YES! POWER FOOTBALL IN THE REDZONE!
More Dobbins please
Well, that was a positive scheme adjustment
Why didn’t we go for two?
Too soon. The numbers advise to kick it there. Later in the fourth quarter you probably go for two. OSU has too many possessions left.
Ohio State scored in the red zone. I didn’t even realize that was legal anymore.
I might have gone for 2 there, but that’s just me.
Well everybody was screaming for changes in the red zone. That was definitely different
I like it. Assert your will and give the O-line some confidence.. that's a 4-down play right there..
I like it too. Gives the O-line some needed support in run blocking.
haskins falling limply to the ground with no one within 5 yards of him was tough. He really doesnt like contact. To be clear, hes an absolute stud, but he really hates being touched
At least he can throw receivers open! Who needs their QB to be tough?
This is the sad reality of the current climate of college football players who the NFL is calling. Can you blame him?
That was embarrassing
He makes Peyton Manning look like a dual threat qb
He’s a stud passer. Thats about it. Not a leader, not physical, can not run——can pass, though. I look for Martell to pack his things, soon.
He’s a top 3 QB in the draft. The leadership is so overrated. I don’t know why fans are so obsessed with it. Urban talks about it.Give me a qb that can move the ball on offense. There few better than Haskins. Before it’s said he can’t help play calling in the red zone. He runs play called.
Haskins also had a play earlier on the read option where he should have kept it around the right end. He has got to be willing to run and run with heart.
Here we come! Go Bucks!
Wyatt Davis looked good right there. I can't wait till Bowen gets healthy, he was a dawg last yr at run blocking.
Biggest problem with this team is complacent attitude. Guys not playing with a fire to destroy opponents. Just going through the motions and think they are so good that they’ll win.
Alright, way to go! That was something new Wyatt Davis blocking in the Red zone. There's one 2 week adjustment!
Shoot. If he is going to be that aggressive, make the change full time
To pile on the coaching critiques in addition to the defense and line play......how have they not taught Haskins how to properly slide? My first thought is, did he just blow out his knee when he goes down like that.
Can’t we just put a spy on Martinez?
Need to stop the inside run first, then let the ends take Martinez or whoever runs wide.
Can we spy our coaches?
3 & out right here defense!
OK we put together a drive for a TD with some power running up the middle. The offensive line actually knocked defenders off the ball. It's a start.
I am sooo praying that the Huskers shoot themselves in the foot again and let our offense take a decent lead and control of this game.
Been calling for Wyatt Davis to start since the summer... he was a beast in HS. How is this coaching staff continually putting the wrong players on the field?
Can a mod find out which member of the Weber family comes in these threads week after week downvoting anything that doesn't sing his praises?
Receivers as leaders = soft assed team.
Our defense is making a very average offense look very good. Can we now stop them? We should be able to but we'll see.
Bold prediction: lights out 4th quarter play and we cover. Who’s with me? Go Bucks!
Sure, what other choice do we have!
Up to the defense
Is it me or does Brendon White look like a baller
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
White needs more playing time. Earned it
If Nebraska out screwups is today 5 more to say only 3 more screwups for us we definitely, possibly, maybe have a possible chance to maybe not lose!!!!i think that is a definite possible maybe!!!!!! Just trying to lighten the mood!
You ain't wrong. I've been saying this since the 2nd series
Keep forcing Martinez to hand it off.
Nebraska shooting themselves
Praise Woody! A dropped pass saves the day
thank god they keep missing open plays on offense
Brendon White needs to start! Great 3 & out defense!
Terry Whites son should be starting. Night v day.
He has the look!
Tell me how Pryor has played better than White?? White has made more please in one quarter than Pryor has all season..
Need a touchdown this drive
Davis WANTS to play now get some bodies on defense out there who want to kick ass too...Togai, Vincent, etc., Garret
Brendan White and Baron Browning playing hard nosed aggressive smart football. Will they get a chance to play a lot more? They should.
Now our offense shorting themselves
Let's go Buckeyes!
We may end up winning this game but...no second half change at LB. Why are Borland and Werner still in there. They have been awful all day long like they have all year. Are Browning, Hilliard and Jones that bad? I forgot..Urban says Werner is one of the most improved players.
Jesus Christ McCall
This team has no killer instinct
McCall can hit the bench. Have to be ready
Haskins just shaking his head instead of talking to McCall after the play and helping teach him. Not a leader.
RUN THE BALL!!!
Had a 5 yard run then nothing
Wow fastest 3 and out I’ve ever seen
Jesus wtf is going on
These plays kinda suck man. Even if they work they're like 6 yard gains?
What was going on there? The punter was even lining up offset from the snapper for some reason.
Am with you BigSmarty ... Togiai, Vincent, Garrett need to see more playing time. We need a big nose tackle to establish strength in the middle of the line.
Haskins so afraid to get hit, he's throwing the ball before anyone is ready. Just a porcelain doll in the pocket.
Now.....we can't get a punt off. Geezus, Meyer, what the fuck happened to your team?
I am ready for Tate Martell. Haskins looks to me like he is waiting on the NFL draft to me.
Can we just put these turds in the toilet? As bad as we are, they really don't belong on the same field with us. 3 turnovers are what's keeping them in the game. #selfinflicted
Chrissman is PoG so far
Brendan White playing well.
Drue Chrisman’s new nickname: FLIP
What is Haskins going to do when they hit him in the NFL?
Go home with millions in his bank account?
Tressell ball lmao....2002 wasnt pretty
At least Tressel ball, as ugly as it was, was physical. Unless you've always had a jones for Texas Tech football. I hope you like it.
Lol dude I'm just making light of a situation unlike everyother negative comment on here.
Due Christman MVP
Ok....no way Nebraska makes a 96 yard drive....right? Right????
Hope OSU doesn't need that burned time out later.
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
A little life from the defense. Let's go Buckeyes!
Tressel rejoice! Special teams looking fine today
Oh great the terrible camera is back.
Why haven't we seen Tate Martell in the last 4 games? We need to shake things up once in a while and he is a dynamic player... makes no freakin sense to me
Our coaches are supposed to be leading this effort ... if we had Combs here I can guarantee our secondary would be much better!!!
Why does Haskins panic when rushed and wimp out on a play when he has running room?
Id bet Tate wouldnt...
The shield is why
Some honesty about Haskins... He doesn't want that contact... Rarely stands in there for that incoming hit. He may adjust this in the NFL... But he clearly is saving himself on many a play. He's taken some hits and delivered... Still there are too many where he obviously gets rid of it at the expense of the route developing and doesn't run for those extra yards. It's too often on 3rd downs.
Come on defense
Little life from the crowd. Come on defense!
Defend well, Bucks!
That needs challenged
??? Worst officials evver
Appears Martinez is better than his supporting cast.
He was a half yard short. Terrible spot.
Chrisman for MVP btw.
Man, Haskell Garret is looking good! Has he been in the rotation all year?
They better replay that. He wasn’t even close on that replay
That ref REALLY wanted to call that a first down. If I were Frost I'd go for it
Thought he was going to signal first down when they had the chain pulled
Schiano - bad call again
That was perplexing.
Wow defense didn’t jump
Frost just screwed the pooch.
Frost blinked. Should have lined up and immediately snapped it
Loved seeing that quick adjustment when Martinez went under center, and good discipline to not jump offside.
Haskell Garrett, you are having a day young man!!!
We didn't lose the game.. we just ran out of time. Vince Lombardi
Play of the game. The defense didn’t jump offsides
Cmon offense get some consistency and move the ball
Not sure I agree with Frost there. Either you go balls out and attempt it, or just send the punting team in right away. Wasted a TO.
You're right. Just take the delay of game and punt. He was hoping the Bucks would jump offsides.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME WE THREW DEEP???!!!
It was intercepted.
We are seeing glimpses of Silver Bullet defense today.
What aee you watching
You've got barbecue back there?
Our best defense is when our offense is on the field.
Let's do this now Buckeyes. Throw it downfield
Schiano gets more fired up for a 4th down for his players not jumping offside than he has been for anything else
Wow Weber where has that been???
White is playing great a time safety. Why was Wint ahead of him?
That’s why you don’t bench Webber.
I’ve been critical of Weber, so I’ll give him props on that run
Weber's pad level is too high.
Throw to Farrell
That was a solid run play. Come on buckeyes!
Finally PC went inside instead of trying force it outside. TD!
This Nebraska team is going to get real good
YES! We’re running the ball today boys!
There's some hope
Come on, Bucks! Get that confidence back and keep rolling.
The POSITIVE... O Line and all around blocking in the running game does look better... Not there yet... But better
Did someone revive Jonathon Cooper!
Garrett and Togiai finally seeing more action
Brendon White loves to come up and tackle. He needs to be on the field the rest of the season.
Borland must have pictures on Urban. That dude should not get the playing time he does.
Will Chase Young's next TFL in this game....be his first?
Chase Young has got to quit crashing down!
BAD SPOT AGAIN
Runners whole body was behind the line. Refs have them half a yard.
Refs screwing Bucks on spots again this week
Frost and Nebraska are getting better and Frost will bring them back in the future. Frost won 2 national championships at Nebraska. He knows what it takes to develop a great team. Look at what he did at UCF.
Almost time to run the clock out and keep it a close game..
