I'm thinking the final here will be 52-24 Good Guys and possibly worse if Chase causes 2 more strip sacks. This young man is UNREAL. Get him a ticket to NYC for the ceremony.
And - the 'Weenies don't know their way to Indy. Never been...
Ahh - I agree with you on Northwestern. I would pick that game on our schedule that I am most afraid of an L coming. I can't wait to see how Day does against teams gunning for us on the road. That was one flaw I think Urban had - he was good for one ugly loss on the road.
This will be a great test for the Day-coached Buckeyes. 'Git 'er done, boys!!
Oh - he's a QB whisperer all right.
"Wanna have a sleepover?"
Hove, not sure if what happened to Maryland was a mirage at Temple or if they finally fell off the wagon for real but I think PSU will be in a bit of trouble when they come calling to the Terps. That should be a pretty good game. We should find out if Maryland is for real or a pretender then.
Hahahahahaa, BrutusB!! I did NOT buy into the Husker Hype train this year. Yeah, they should have a pretty good offense - BUT - they DO need to put that defense on the field as well. I can't see them stopping too many teams. Many were worried about the game in Lincoln. I think we curb stomp them 'Shuckers.
My pick for the West was UW followed by Iowa or NW, but N-dub isn't looking too great.
I hope Chase can get four sacks before his day is done, then. Would love to see him be invited to NYC at the end of the year. Block a few punts, have an INT and get 20 sacks on the year and he HAS TO BE considered for the Heisman.
Joel Klatt was really pouring on the praise to the Buckeyes. He says they are one of the top four teams in the country for sure and should be in the CFP.
Rona - SEC plays them or the Minnesota School for the Deaf, win by 14 and get a pat on the back. We get chastised for it...
Zach and Noah should get plenty of reps in the second half here. Zach is still having troubles disengaging from the lineman. He should get plenty of practice Saturday.
Sorry Silver but when we get to see what the future Buckeyes will look like with real in-game reps, this is NOT boring to me at all.
I'm hoping Garrett Wilson gets two TD catches or more in this game.
Brewsters - not only did he look fast, I thought he made the entire defense look faster. I love his play!! More PT should be in his future.
Joe and Sanitarian, I am making a point as to how I was raised. If I made an agreement and I made it for so many years, I was raised to be a man of high character, if I give my word, I keep it. I don't go back on it because I feel I am entitled to more. I honor my current contract and use my credentials for more later - once the contract is honored.
I just don't think young people nowadays are taught to be honorable, or whatever you want to call it.
Man - am I showing my age and sounding like my parents!??
I have a feeling I am certainly in the minority here but if I were any owner and a player is holding out while ON CONTRACT, I would tell him to live up to the deal he signed for, and I will make it worth his while. NO PLAYER has the right to hold out while on contract. You want skip out, skip out on your paychecks while you're at it. You made a deal, you honor it. You do NOT go back on your word.
Holy crap the defense is taking a hit on the injury bug for game 1!! Hope the D can stay healthy throughout this game - and the season.
Yeah but Minnyscrotum does NOT have the athletic advantage we have on FAU. This game shouldn't be close.
Mark Twain once said "Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience." I think that pretty much sums up Twitter.
Our defensive front four are so good that to me a 5 O-linemen vs 4-Dlinemen I think we have a DECIDED advantage. There are two or three linemen that require a double team. They can only double team ONE - advantage Silver Bullets!
I'd like to know how Clemson escaped that latest accusation. That one and quite a few others toward the south and particularly SEC schools makes me wonder if the NCAA truly is an SEC-biased organization.
Amen, Stl!! If he stays healthy, he's going to hurt quite a few others. He's like a real-life Paul Bunyan. Huge young man!
I'm hoping JK breaks a long TD run early in this game - like 70-80 yards - and has a 200+ yard game in our first game of the year. Put himself firmly in the Heisman talk.
What happened? One of those years, the OOC was ND, Texas, and Boston College.... That would have been a great grind.
Whoops, thank you! I forgot that and the article didn't mention it. I am sure the scholie is still valid.
Now if just somehow he could get a scholarship. Very hard worker.
UV'ed you on both posts to help you out. ;)
