Wish we got a TD but I'll take points
Why is Mike Weber wearing #5?
They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
Because he wants to?
Maybe it's a misdirection thing... JK with 2 and Weber with 5.
It’s the number he wore in high school. Let’s not kid ourselves: this is Weber’s Senior Day. He’s halfway gone to the League already.
I thought he wore 20 in HS
I thought I was crazy when I was like Weber isnt 5 lol
Keep pressuring their DBs - they can't hang with us. Stop doing stupid things.
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"
Better than I'd hoped for in the first half. Let's go, buckeyes!
Martell needs to throw a friggin pass.
Martell needs to stay on the friggin' sideline.

Hey Hove, could you put the QTR at the front of the subject title, please?
Victor drug his foot!!! It was a TD!! But no review??
God > Family > Buckeyes football
Was not a TD..
Foot never touched
The ball wasn't over the plane so that wouldn't matter. But these officials are a joke.
Yeah foot definitely touched but ball never crossed the plain..of his foot touched in the end zone like it did and the ball wouldnof crossed the plain even though out of bounce it would of count but never got to that point
Yes, he dragged his foot. Before he ever had possession of the ball. That wasn’t a TD.
Should be a double digit lead
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
They can't stop us.... we can only beat ourselves with dumb mistakes.
OSU c/o 2004
At least we ended TTUN's momentum at the end of the half. Get the ball to start the 2nd. Let's go boys! Offense is humming!!
fucking shit show in the last 3 minutes.
praying that Arnette foregoes his last year of eligibility and declares
He already declared........to be a liability.
"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
no comparison between these two teams. OSU just needs to play a clean half.
i am so tired of penalties on this undisciplined ohio state team. and weber is soooo slow and too short to be downfield receiver. OUT
his toe dragged, that should have been a touchdown
Successful people do what they have to, whether they feel like it or not
The ball never broke the plane so if it was ruled a catch it would have been out at the 1.
Wasnt a td. Ball never crossed the line
Go look up the rule, in most cases you have to cross the plane
Line is irrelevant with foot down in end zone
Maybe Dobbins will get tired. Michigan Man, 11-30-2019
This lead and momentum are a good thing for 2nd half teams.
I don’t like Tate in that situation with the momentum. I like him at short plays throughout the game but not after the momentum shift and with the way Haskins has been playing today. Should have run another cross or out route and give Haskins two shots at it.
Let's Go BUCKEYES!!!!!
I liked it. That’s 6 if someone picked up their block
I agree he missed a block but if you gave me the bet of taking Haskins with 2 plays or one guy making the right block, I’m taking Haskins.
That was all on Martell. He did not follow the block set up by Weber. Instead he tried to cut inside and got stuffed.
Should’ve just handed it to the RB with a lead blocker.
Tate with Weber lead blocking is exactly that.
I could not be anymore frustrated with the last minute of that half. That being said, we are torching their defense and the o line is giving Haskins time. Come out, score a td and then get a stop.
The O-line is making me proud
Ideal situation!! To come out and score then follow up with a stop!!
Arnette and Sheffield are both weak links.
can't upvote but hell yes
I'm going to have a freaking heart attack.
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
Should be up more but at least they are up.
Even with the mistakes the Buckeyes are still leading and get the ball first. Feeling good!
Would really like to hear an explanation as to why that wasn't targeting.
OL playing great.
Penalties and the turnover have kept UM in it.
Exactly. If we eliminate those, we’ve got them stopped.
You win with people.
And so forth...
9 Units Strong!
i hope patterson doesnt continue to puck on sheffield (toast) and birland looked like the borland if the prior 11 games. sliw and out if position
I disagree, Tuf had made alot of plays in the first half
most "fans" don't even pay attention to this stuff they just pull a skip bayless and go on talking points.
Agree man. Hands down best half of football Tuf has played this year. Harrison had a monster half also. Go Bucks
Tuf has played a lot better the past couple games. Just can’t imagine he was anywhere near 100% earlier in the year.
Game will be won on the backs of Sheffield and arnette
and that is scary
Go Bucks! TTUN tears are best! Beat Wisky!!!
I think he means like "youre only as strong as your weakest link."
Accurate interpretation ASJ?
Other team has way too much undeserved confidence. It’s a shame OSU can’t pull together a clean half because outside of two plays we all know who the better team is.
This is definitely where I parked my car.
We should be up a lot more than 5 at the half, but I wasn't expecting a lead, so I guess I will take it.
Penalties and fumbles are making this game closer than it should be
Great first 28 minutes. Borderline disastrous final two minutes. Sorry, Urban, but our return teams just suck.
And what kind of scheme did Schiano think he was running when Patterson ran for the first down that kept the Michigan drive alive. There was no one on that side of the field that wasn't 20 yards downfield. WTF?
All in all, a better first half than I thought it would be, but why let Michigan off the mat when you had them down? SMH at those final two minutes...
We were in man. When in man, everyone has their backs to the QB chasing their receiver. Perfect time to tuck it and run.
Looked like we had our DE (Cooper I think) slant inside with no LB to contain the edge. Don’t understand that call with our LBs all covering men down field. Left the edge wide open for an easy 1st. That or Cooper just made the wrong play
He owes me 260 bucks vacation pay, and he won't fuckin' pay that, so I figured a handful of chips wasn't too much to ask.
The DE was in a stunt and looped around the left tackle. It worked - he came in unblocked but Patterson evaded him. He needed to get there and didn’t
Other than the mistakes and penalties, I didn't expect that first half from Ohio State.
So talented, which has shown in this one.
So undisciplined, which has shown in this one.
We have to button it up in the second half, and if we do, we will roll.
So true and so, so frustrating the way the half ended. Of course the PI against Arnette opened the flood gates followed by Sheffield getting beat, the KO error, then more boneheaded red zone play calling. Give scUM the TD but this should be at least a 28-12 game right now
Got my Great Lakes Christxas Ale
You win with people
OSU continues to outscore TUN each quarter.
Keep it up, Buckeyes!
WE CHEER YOU AS YOU GO!
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
Should be up 8 at minimum but we got it back to 5 and we get the ball. If we can clean up the penalties and they continue to not be able to handle our O, we can pull this out. Let’s go Bucks!!!
Poor play calling there at the end of half, especially the Tate play and Meyer wi_ped out and went for 3.
Da_ned refs turned this into a close game by sticking bs into the officiating. Arnette got grabbed but called for the foul. Shitagain is grabbing and holding constantly with no calls.
Just hope they come out strong in 2nd half.
If you'd told me we'd be up 24-19 at the half, I'd have taken that last week
"porque las estirpes condenadas a cien años de soledad no tenían una segunda oportunidad sobre la tierra."
The Tate package is way too predictable
Exactly, no threat to throw and with haskins playing the way he is you dont take him out period....
Theyre settin them up for later...
Kanga, you mean next year? Lol
I mean Im drunk and overly optimistic...
Every year at home vs Michigan Ohio state gifts Michigan with a terrible special teams play
Was that like 17 points in 42 seconds between the 2 teams? Unfortunately stuck watching espn game cast on mobile
We are shredding their vaunted D. If not for boneheaded mistakes this game would be a blowout for the good guys. Impressed with our O-line. Giving Haskins plenty of time. Crucial calls not going our way though; zebras have orders from Delaney?
Outplaying these guys big time.
Yep. We kinda fucked up there but make no mistake. We looked like the better team. And they know that now...
Let’s see what adjustments we make.
My offensive play book for the 2nd half would be:
playaction pass deep.
I feel like I’m going to vomit. We have to score on our opening drive.
OSU d giving up 3.4 ypc against this upper tier rushing attack
OSU having their way on offense.
Some stupid penalties and the turnover keeping UM in it.
Cut out the stupid mistakes and get the W!
I thought no we need just 3 more scores. I believe our defense will be able to hold them the way they are playing
"I don't apologize for anything. When I make a mistake, I take the blame and go on from there." - Woody Hayes
How was that an incomplete pass on Victor? He caught it with a toe down. Should’ve been Buckeye ball inside the 1.
Urban Meyer >Jim Harbaugh for ever and ever, Amen. 0
Ill take the points but man, the way we ended that half with 2 tds by ttun after a bullshit kickoff like last week. Unreal. I will stay optimistic but that was a big hit.
Pridgeon personal foul that took away a sure first down
arnette two pass interference penalties that led to touchdowns to 10 points
kick off gaff a free seven points
17 points come straight from osu mistakes
You see the replay of the Pridgeon penalty? He got shoved into the um player. Bad call
There have been a lot of those today.
Hey. Compared to what many thought it would be, I'll take it right now. Up on scum at the half at home, I'm happy.
ScUM fortunate to be in this. Without miscues this would have been a 14+ lead at half. Bucks came prepared and are playing lights out. Keep it up and put this thing away!
Confused on why you throw 2 passes from the 3 yard line but neither ever reach the end zone..
Haskins should break the record this half. 40 TDs baby.
I don’t care what happens after this game. A big ten championship would be nice. Playoffs I’ll take. Rose Bowl sounds good but ALL I WANT IS A WIN TODAY!!
Since Haskins settled down he’s been playing great. Kudos to the OL, just stop with the drive killing penalties. The D was playing great until they allowed them to march down for their first 6, which should never happen. No words for the other TD. Sucks we didn’t get 6 at the end, but given the shitshow directly before, I’ll take the 5 point swing between the failed 2pt and OSU FG.
Refs badly missed 13 players on the field when scUM broke the huddle when we called TO
Where was the fucking review of Victors catch?!?!?!?!? Dude drug his foot holding the ball and we couldn't even get a review?! Should be 28-19! Should honestly be 28-6 right now!
Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever
The ball wasn't in the endzone. There's plenty to complain about with these officials but that play isn't one of them.
The ball never crossed the goal line. I am not sure I have seen that situation before that I can remember, but if the receiver starts in the end zone and dives back across the goal line to catch the ball is that a TD? Not sure if is.
if he did have a toe in it is a TD. People talking about crossing the plane like this is a running play.
Very proud of the boys AND especially of Meyer and Schiano. They did not phone it in... they're coaching and playing their asses off and they're taking chances in the process.
When I die, sprinkle my ashes over the 70's
They need to start calling the late hits and kicking / kneeing the running back in the head after the whistle.
Yeah, the score should be better, but overall we are dramatically outplaying them so far. You know they're going to work to shut down our mesh/crossing routes in the 2nd, so it will be curious to see how we adjust. Feeling pretty good so far, though.
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
Well with any luck that last couple of minutes will be the worst that happens and we win this going away. On the other hand if all we do is lose the second half by 4 points or less I could live with that too.
Absolutely no. There are no moral victories or good loses at Ohio State... especially to ttun.
If we lose the second half by 4, we win by one. No moral victory just a win.
I believe he meant lose the 2nd half by 4 - with a 5 point lead
24-19 at the first half. Let's continue to move the ball. I have a feeling this might start to become a shootout. Pass protection has been better
I said as long as we kept this close by halftime I would feel good. So I feel good. But still feel like I should feel better
If it weren't for the fumble, and some stupid penalties, we would potentially be up 24-6 right now..just continue to score points and continue to shut ttun down..
I do not understand taking the ball out of Dwayne's hands in that play, unless you're going to do a QB Power throw back pass to a crosser or something other than the obvious of running him.. poor "too cute" decision making there, but we'll take the three points so long as the offense puts a drive together to start the second half
Farrell totally whiffed on his man. Gap was wide open apart from that linebacker who he whiffed on.
Pressure is on them! The only thing that’s slowed this offense down so far is penalties
OSU needs to win to be merciful to TTUN. Those DBs for them are SLOWWW....cannot keep up with the WRs without blatantly holding every play. If OSU has no business being in the playoffs then TTUN definitely does not. This game should not even be this close.
Get the points you get ball first to start second half just keep doing what you have been on offense and go up two possessions. Their db can’t hang with our outside speed
Get another Bucks touchdown, and with some breathing room, turn the front 7 loose to twist, stunt, and rattle Shea.
Go Bucks. Keep your heads in the game.
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes
Please, not a string of runs up the middle. Keep the playbook wide open.
The OSU D needs to even up the turnover battle. Offense, adjust to their adjustment, they are covering backs with Devin bush, QB draw will be their in the 2nd half and hopefully we get a flag the next time Haskins gets speared.
Just eliminate the whole giving them two TDs in 6 seconds thingy and we'll be fine.
AKA the Horseshoe, the Shoe, and the House That Harley Built
Don Brown is the master of half time adjustments, which scares me
Yeah but he cant adjust for Golden Arm Dwayne. Dude can make every throw.
Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.
We were definitely the better team in the first half. Let’s keep it rolling. Show us whatcha got Bucks!!!!
Gotta hope the corners can hold up without committing penalties
How many different ways can you point your finger at the corners today
If you told me 24-19 at half and getting the ball I would have taken it.... throw out the first half... 30 min to win a game nobody gave us a chance in. I expect the skunk weasels to play a lot of zone in the second half.... keep it up O-Line!
Vires Et Honestas
I’m nervous guys. Want to see another solid half of football minus the penalties and turnover.
This is OSU vs OSU. Game should not be even close. Refs finally starting to call holds and DPI on their backend who grab every fucking play
Then D gives up TD with 43 secs left.
Special teams fumbles KO and *ich scores on 1st play.
That is 13 points which we get back only 3 after having 1st and goal on the 4.
This isn't trending in the right way.
We get ball to start 2nd half.
If we don't score lets get field position.
Field position will win game for bucks if they can establish it.
*ichigan wins if they make defensive adjustments that stymie Bucks.
Buckeye since 1952.
The lead and the ball to start the half. Clean up the penalties.
You've got to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight.
