Stat I just found: Ohio State hasn't lost a home game at noon since November 17th, 2001.
I'm interested to see if 7-2 Indiana is getting any respect from the committee. They could find their way into the top 25 tonight.
I also wonder how much they value Cincinnati and Wisconsin.
Big Thanos at every spot.
It'll be announced either 6 or 12 days out. FOX has all but confirmed they have it, and it sounds like it will be their Big Noon game, but it could also be at 4:00pm.
I'm currently 21, so I'd like to think I'll see that day, and I hope it comes soon.
Man, that's tough. JD Johnson was now-Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler's backup last year and was featured a bit on that QB1 documentary series. He seemed like a good kid, so this is awful news to hear. Good on TTUN for being willing to honor his scholarship.
Joel Klatt just said on Speak For Yourself on FS1 that FOX has the game and that he and Gus Johnson will be there. It will certainly be a noon kick on FOX.
We would wreck both of these teams.
I think it's Fickell's job if he wants it.
I worried for nothing. Lol.
Offense has scored a TD on 2 of the last 3 possessions. Olave is a big game receiver, and it appears we've figure out what we need to do to win the game.
Hmm. Wondering about everyone's level of worry with the offense today. I think the defense is fine, but I'm worried that the offense can't move the ball. It starts up front, and we're having a tough time protecting Fields. I know, it's the #1 statistical defense in the nation - but I'm starting to worry that it's not going to get better today.
Not a great start.
10 point lead, we're in a good spot. Buckeyes get the ball out of the half. Go get some points and get to work defensively.
Let's get it.
Great touchdown pass, Fields to Olave.
Score out of the half and they'll give up. Let's take their fight away, Buckeyes!
Defense is playing really hard and having a lot of success. Just need to figure things out offensively.
Let's get it going, Buckeyes. We'll figure it out.
Excellent news about Munford & Browning.
This one's going to be a big one, folks - really looking forward to it.
Ohio State has an incredible football team, and I believe in Ryan Day fully.
That said, I have a really weird feeling about this game. Being on the road on a Friday night (especially if there ends up being rain or wind) worries me. I'm not predicting an upset, but I do think it's possible Northwestern hangs around longer than they should, for whatever reason.
I hope I'm wrong and the Buckeyes win by 50. Go Bucks!
We'll know on Monday. My guess is a noon kick on FOX, but I wouldn't mind a mid-afternoon game either.
I'm on the younger side, so I'm only going to have a limited field of guys to pick from. That said:
C - Oden
PF - Sullinger
SF - Turner
SG - Diebler
PG - Russell
Very interesting idea.
Offensively, I think Meyers and Davis are back on the O-line. Teague, Wilson, Williams, Olave, Ruckert and Farrell will be back for Fields to get the ball to, in addition to adding talented freshmen like Fleming, Cooper, Scott, and Smith-Njigba.
Defensively, I think Werner and Browning are also back in the middle, in addition to having guys like Teradja Mitchell and Cade Stover waiting in the wings. I know Tyreke Smith and Zach Harrison will be back, and they're going to be a heck of a duo on the edges of the D-Line, along with guys like Togiai and Vincent on the interior. I think it's possible Wade comes back to play more of a traditional corner rather than being "just" a nickel guy, but I'm not sure on that one. We have talent behind him, with Cameron Brown playing some good football last night and guys like Marcus Williamson, Amir Riep, and Sevyn Banks waiting to play. Josh Proctor will be here to take up Fuller's spot as the high safety, along with Brendon White playing a role in the safety conversation as well.
Special teams-wise, we return both Chrisman and Haubeil, so I like the continuity there.
Ultimately, we'll lose a lot. But thanks to the amazing job our staffs have done over the years in terms of recruiting, we should be just fine.
Great run! Go Bucks!
Let's get it! Go Bucks!
