Going with my Dad. Go Bucks!
Would love to attend, but we’re not arriving until Saturday afternoon.
Anybody have plans for a pre-game gathering?
In my humble opinion, you don’t get in if you don’t win your conference. Not with only 4 teams.
Expand it to 6, with the winners of the 5 power conferences and one at large from outside the P5.
Outlaw “rematches” between conference rivals, as it only benefits the team that lost the first time by goving them another chance on a bigger stage. If an OSU/OU type of rematch happens in the CFP because both won their respective conference, okay - they get a bump for playing “real” nonconf games.
Just “Squeeze the cheese” this Saturday and let the chips fall where they may. Absolutely no shame in vanquishing your rival - and your next three rivals (PSU, MSU, Wisc) and winning the B1G.
What year was it that some of our own idiot fand pelted their players with Buckeyes after the game?
Just saying, every team has fringe a-hole fans.
By the warriors in white
Yeah, long live the King
Good for him! No shame in doing your thing in the CFL.
23-20 OSU. GO BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!
Only three more days
‘Til the Wolves of November

For me, it all boils down to the sheer arrogance of their fans and blue-blood alumni. Nose in the air, uppity BS. I can say that because I’ve lived not far from AA for the past 20 years (long story), and it never ceases to amaze.
The program and history is worthy of a degree of respect but not veneration like they all believe
Can’t even have a respectable, objective conversation with any of them (though I have tried many times). Bastards.
Ttun seems seems to have a legit D, but not a lot of depth there. It will be critical to estabish a run game against them and eventually wear them down and put them away by mid Q4.
Offensively, O’Korn will make plays with his legs - he is respectable at that if not a great passer. It will be important for our D to maintain discipline when plays break down.
If we protect the ball, button up their special teams return game, and establish the run? OSU 33 ttun 17.
My 2 cents:
- 5 power conference winners and 1 at-large from outside the power 5
- Must win conference to gain entry to CFP (no conf runners-up or conf champ game losers; conf “rematches” reward the losing team by giving them a do-over on a bigger stage with higher stakes)
- Nonconference scheduling must include two games vs power 5 teams. Imagine the excitement and dollars generated by seeing OSU/USC or ND/Bama or OU/FSU type of games every year.
Not bad, better than the home version.
Bring back the chome stormtrooper version with the fat helmet stripe, and I’ll be happy. That LOOKED like an Ohio State football uni.
Please bring back those chrome stormtrooper uniforms with the fat helmet stripe.
Hail to the Victors
Like nails scraping a chalkboard

Over-hyped coach asks
Who’s got it better than us
Ohio State does

Winter is coming
Beat *ichigan in these and I’ll love them.
IMHO, the “chrome” alternates from a few years ago were by far the best, especially the stormtrooper whites. It “looked” like an OSU football uniform, and the fat helmet stripe was badass.
Just win, that’s all I care about
Athough, I thought the “chrome” all-whites were utterly amazing. Would love to see thise make a comeback.
I have read and heard a lot in the last 24 hrs about three embarrassing blowout losses in less than a year.
Clemson went on to win the CFP - they were an unstoppable force, and we were offensively discombobulated for two straight seasons. I can live with that loss.
I can also live with the OU loss, as Mayfield might be the best player in college ball right now. They came in with a chip on their collective shoulder and played on fire.
But this debacle yesterday is almost unexplainable. I’m 49 and I’ve never seen anything like getting utterly beaten down by 31 to a team you were heavily favored to defeat.
I don’t think it’s a fluke - I think the entire program’s personality is that it doesn’t really have one (or it has several). If true, that has to be fixed from the top down, and it just might get worse before/if it gets better.
Expectations are the root of all heartache.
I get that the offense was highly ranked and all, but the predictability and lack of downfield passing game the past two years has got to change.
This is where I hope Wilson can make a difference.
