With how well these guys are playing, when does Ryan Day return the favor and put on a hoops jersey for a press conference?
That’ll likely prove too much for the Golden Flashes to overcome, so we’re picking a double-digit-point win for the Buckeyes.
Prediction: Ohio State 72, Kent State 59
The only way this game is as within 13 is if we're sloppy with the ball, miss free throws, and they're on fire from long range. It will likely happen at some point this season, but not likely tonight at St. John.
Good guys by 20+.
I have supreme confidence in Franklin to screw things up in a close game. I hope we don't give him that opportunity.
I am amazed at how many current NFL players are on our roster for the first game. That team was loaded, as was the team after that, and the team after that...
The receiving stats are cool and Olave’s catch was awesome but not sure any other stats matter from Rutgers. We obviously were flat and disinterested.
Let’s hope there is no hangover from this game.
@Ramzy - to get to your score prediction, the Buckeyes need to score 3+ TD's per quarter. I don't see them throwing the ball enough in quarters 2-4 for that to happen. I think they're going run the ball and the clock the entire 2nd half, which means Chrisman will likely get a chance to punt a couple of times.
The 1st quarter against Maryland featured a heavy dose of Fields. I wonder if the 1st quarter against Rutgers will feature a heavy dose of JK...
It is pretty said if the biggest question is can the third string defense keep Rutgers out of the end zone. I crave a shut out... so does the committee.
I want to see Baylor pummel Oklahoma. I have no affinity for Baylor, I just love it when Oklahoma loses.
Our youth needs until mid-January to develop and then hopefully there is enough gas left in the tank for March.
Enjoy this year first. Next year is not a given (see 2015).
I just checked StubHub for tickets. Lower level 50 yard line tickets on Ohio State's sideline are priced way higher than 50 yard line tickets on Rutgets sideline. Minimum of a $30 difference.
SHI had a regional sales office next to my office for a couple of years. The sign on the door read: SHI Technology
I had no idea who they were at the time, but I thought it was an odd choice for a company name. I suppose they have dropped the "Technology" in the name.
Maybe a friend loaned them the money...
I hope everyone realizes that CY's attorney wrote CY's tweet for him.
Who is paying the attorney? Ohio State? Is it pro bono?
I am interested in finding out who the friend is and how did the friend get the money to provide the loan. There is a chance this story goes much deeper than we know.
They're all 18-22 years old. We won't know how they'll react until about 12:15 tomorrow.
Chase's get off time is ridiculous, which will be missed. While I think the rest of the roster can pick up the slack, the extra 0.5 seconds the QB has to throw could make a slight difference. Maybe not this game or the next, but if we don't get him back for the final 2 (or 3, or 5) games, it will be felt.
Hopefully the updated story is true, a loan to pay life expenses, that has since been paid off.
Immediate gratification. The kid had a lot of stuff swirling in his head:
- Meyer suspended
- Bosa goes down
- Bosa quits
- Meyer retires
- What does the future look like???
- I better get something for myself...
Hopefully this isn't the case and he gets cleared. The flip side is too difficult to imagine.
I'm predicting a big win for by the boys in scarlet and gray. If we can make free throws down the stretch, we win by double figures.
Fortunately he's sitting on nest egg built from NFL money, so cash isn't the main motivator.
with a 5 wide formation, won't we be off and passing??? LOL
"They have some ballers on their team from Georgia," Williams said. "We need to keep the pipeline rolling."
You can say that again! Competition is tough, but hopefully we can continue plucking some good ones out of the state.
