Exactly Hove, and this is why I feel this game is going to be an absolute blood-bath for the Lions.
Buckguy - you're gonna break the internets today with that comment!!
I think we will see the full blast of our Ohio State offense in this game. This is the third big game now and hopefully the weather will be better than the MSU and Wisconsin games. I look for the lid to be blown off the offense here - no holds barred - and a thorough beat-down of Penn State.
Or at least this is my hope!
I also think Zach took two too many steps downfield to chip the TE and created the lane. I don't believe Chase would have made that move.
Salty, I think Chase GOES OFF on PSU - to the tune of 3+ sacks including a strip sack and 4 TFL. He should be rested, ready, and in the mood to beat some Lion ass. He also knows what is in store for us if we win. He - and the team, will be ready. I look for a beat down of epic proportions Saturday.
Very true, Bucks. I was a little salty that we gave up 21 points to this basically hapless offense. They kept the starters in the entire game. I feel we should have countered with starters mixed in with 2nd and 3rd teamers. I know, I am being petty but the competitor in me says you have to beat the spread.
Ticketmaster absolutely SUCKS as the "official" ticket agency for Ohio State. The last game I purchased tickets for that you needed to print, those bastards charged me a $5 or $7.50 fee per ticket for printer fees - and I printed the ticket on MY OWN PRINTER!!
I wished OSU would go back to the hangonsloopy.com site for tickets. Ticketmaster rapes us with fees. Bastards!!!
He’s a big-play receiver who can take the top off the defense, drawing comparisons to former Massillon star Devin Smith..
That's good enough for me!! Oh boy!!
I would love to know the answer to that burning question you posed: The ground attack has been dominant all year round and that has plenty of folks wondering why the staff can't seem to land one of the country's top tailbacks?
It can't be the lack of putting backs in the NFL - that is happening.. WTF is the real reason here??
Heard that our opponent win loss record is better than LSU’s. I bet that and the rankings of our offense and defense outweighed the ranking of the teams LSU has beat to date.
The target got pinned on our backs and it’s Ryan Day, staff, and teams job to knock off all challengers. I like this team and I like their chances to be the first #1 ranked team to win it all. We won the first ever playoff, now stake another claim to football immortality.
Let’s go Bucks!!
The ACC lately is like the AFC East. One good team and a bunch of losers...
MHJR's highlight tape is wicked!! It's not fair what he did to those corners. Give them back their lunch money, big fella!!
I agree and I also think Noah Potter will be pretty special as well. He looks like a Bosa brother with his long arms and lean, lanky frame. Add some muscle and technique to this young man and we should be enjoying his career, too.
This is the pic of the week right here.
If ANY assistant or coordinator deserves to be in the HOF, it is this man for sure. One look at all the talent he put in the NFL from PSU and OSU tells how great a coach this man is.
The day he decides to retire from coaching and leave Ohio State will be my saddest Ohio State memory ever, by far. Coach Johnson IS A LEGEND. There will never be another like him.
I would bet that if Ohio State wins it all this year, Gene will sit down with Ryan and renegotiate that contract real quickly.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. You are a fine young man and a great Buckeye!! I love watching you on BTN.
I UV'ed you for your comment but I am not buying the Gopher hype yet. They haven't played anyone of note yet and I reserve judgment for that day.
They may be balanced on both sides of the ball but they don't have the talent level of the PSUs of the world, I believe.
Would you as a player like the way the schedule ends? To me, it gets you ready for the real grind of the playoffs.
In order for Chase to LOCK it down, I think we need to line him up in goal to go offenses as a TE and throw him the ball or bring him in motion for a TE jet sweep. It's very apparent he needs to TDs to help his chances - by the media, not me.
I agree Stant, but I think Minny-haha will get pummeled by PSU, lose to UW, and this will leave the winner of the UW-Iowa game as the West representative. I would LOVE to see some redemption handed to that Iowa team.
This is where we drop a lineman into space and get a few picks like we did against Bama.
Many College Football pundits are saying that Chase is the best football player in the country. IF HE IS, then why no Heisman talk from the media?? I mean after all, this award goes to the best player in football - not just the best OFFENSIVE player. He makes opposing coaches game plan to stay away from him or double team him all the time. I am sorry but there is no QB out there now that has effected games the way this young man has. He SHOULD be the frontrunner for this trophy.
Nut - if I was a betting man, I would take Wisconsin and the points. We should win this game, but I will be surprised if our guys cover. Also will be quite impressed because they are much better than I am giving them credit for (our guys, that is).
If you ask me, this game just got tougher when the Badgers lost to lowly Illinois. They will come in pissed off and angry and we will need to survive the first onslaught of their anger. They will be extremely motivated - no doubt.
