With Wade opting out, even knowing the season will most likely start on 17 Oct, I do think Birm was on to something. I just hope we can stop the bleeding before we get to Oct. 

Comment 11 Sep 2020

I sure hope you’re correct. Doesn’t seem like Birm or Austin Ward feel that way. I hope they are just being pessimistic.

Fatpants, I felt the same way initially, but after looking at the timing of his tweets, then what is reported a couple days later... he’s got some pretty sticky feces. 
 

I still categorize it in the rumor/theory category, but it’s upgraded from the BS category for me.

Rabbit, spot on!

Some people on here sound like scUM fans. I am the first to admit that Dabo is a douche. However, just because a team has beat us the least few times we played and good players are returning doesn’t mean they are paying their players. 

With that being said, I hope they are paying them and get caught, lose all their scholarships, then they all get diagnosed with crabs.

Wait, Ubrz & Spices gets down voted because he links us to the forum post that came out a couple days ago? Huh. Well, Urbz, I got you covered with an upvote.

Here’s a list...from what I understand it’s the largest number of early enrollees we’ve ever had! These men want to lose those black stripes!

While I do feel Clemson is good and will be a great game, I do think the media effectively built them up over the last 5-6 weeks. They are great, but the second toughest team they played (Virginia) is very equivalent to Cincinnati. They did the same thing to Virginia what we did to Cincinnati. 

Furthermore, we just beat 3x top-15 teams with a patchwork secondary and a gimpy QB. Once they heal up, we will be humming! That being said, outscoring Wisc 27-0 in a half sounds like humming to me! The only other team to do that was us earlier this year.

Buckeye fans that think we will be outclassed are still suffering from 31-0-itis. That ain’t happening again! Urban Meyer initially hired Ryan Day to ensure that won’t and now he is at the helm. 

It’s a great decade to be a buckeye fan! Let’s enjoy it!

Call me a pessimist, but I feel the same way! I feel nervous about this one for several reasons. 

1) Field’s mobility/knee. Last time we played Bucky, it took a few JF runs to finally open this game up. We only had 10 points in the 3Q. We won’t have his mobility at our disposal this week with his knee. You can bet they will be keying on JK. Couple this with Bucky’s ability to pressure the QB (5 sacks last time we played them and #5 in the nation in sacks) makes me nervous.

2) Jack Coan indoors. JF said our offense could put 50+ on them with better weather, but Jack also had a terrible game in the bad weather. True, a lot of that was CY on the prowl, but if they contain CY like TTUN did, I think Coan has the ability to have a 200+ yard game if we keep 8-9 guys in the box like we did last time  

3) Rat Poison. Our team is getting a lot of that this week with B1G awards, everyone picking them to curbstomp Bucky, etc.

4) OSU is coming off two huge wins. Can we have a third?

I’ll be at the game, rooting my guts out for the good guys. Hopefully all this is just me being overly pessimistic. 

I will caveat all this with also saying I was extremely nervous for the 2014 B1G game against Bucky. Yep, the 59-0 one. I went to that one as well and that was literally the most amazing display of dominance I have ever witnessed in person.

I know...everyone thinks this game is in the bag. I am also a pessimistic fan (even though I felt we would beat PSU by 21+). However, I feel nervous about this one for several reasons.
