Alice's Restaurant is an overlooked cultural study of the 1960's. May the Group W bench live forever.
Based on seeing Lawrence play in person three times over the last two seasons, I would say TL has the edge at being the better quarterback because of his ability to quickly see and make the correct reads against defenses. This allows Lawrence the luxury of short drop backs and quick releases. Experience matters.
Stats? Oooh, a battle of macros, pivot tables, v&h lookups, 8x10 color glossy charts with circles and arrows explaining what all the figures are about. Bring on the battle of the Excel nerds!
Just having the opportunity to compete for the championship speaks volumes about the Ohio State football program. The Buckeyes belong but do not underestimate the challenge they face.
Do not be shocked if the CFP committee places State in the three slot. The important thing is that the Buckeyes will have the opportunity to compete for the championship. Having the chance is all that matters.
The last three games definitely exposed some flaws on both sides of the ball for Ohio State. The Bucks again may be outclassed in the CFP, but at least they get the opportunity to compate.
I hate to be the guy, but ----
Regular season OSU 41 UCLA 20
Rose Bowl OSU 10 UCLA 23
While I expect a Buckeye victory, familiarity breeds contempt and upsets.
Of course Michigan's familiarity with Mattison and Washington might give Harbaugh a clue on how to attack.
Kudos to Scum, they have neutralized Mr. Young
I appreciate the congratulatory replys. I have my work cut out over the fandom of my now two grandsons. Their Dad is a USC Gamecock fan and the two boys were born in the shadow of Death Valley.
Just became a grandfather for the second time. Can the day become any better?
My 69 years of life OSU is up 39-28-2 however for my first 50 years TSUN holds a 25-23-2 edge. Two morals: OSU dominance is not preordained and 69 is NICE as it beats the alternative.
Penn State defenders caused the three fumbles. The Lions earned those turnovers.
It is going to be a war. We forget how close our beloved Buckeyes are to having a three game losing streak to the Lions. OSU 31 PSU 27. Starters play 4 quarters while falling just short of 400 yards in total offense. Young is schemed. That and unfortunately Michigan exposes the Hoosiers big time.
You can say that again.
Perhaps the most overlooked phase of the upcoming game and possibly the only dent in Ohio State's armor over the last couple of games.
How about a Zoot Suit with a Reet Pleat?
You are correct that Penn State will provide a serious challenge for the Buckeyes. Having to come from behind in the second half will make OSU a better team for the experience. Bucks 31 Lions 27.
Game day is nigh when Matt 's history stats appear. Thank you from a stat nerd.
The 1964 loss to the Lions when the Bucks were second ranked was my first taste of disappointment as a Buckeye fan.
Hinneygate was way after my time but there embryonic hints of things to come when things got a little rowdy at the Varsity Club and spilled out to Lane Avenue.
