I am sorry, but this is stupid. I get tired of the Bucks being every teams home prime-time game. Then we get relegated to having all of our big time home games at noon to satisfy Fox. I don't care if this game is played Tuesday at 2am, Ohio State is gonna smack the shit outta Minny, Its just annoying with everything that went on with game times this season. We should never play any regular season games other than Saturday, we don't need that gimmick BS.
The Pirate vs. Joey Freshwater...must see TV right there
Good Luck to him...Buckeyes will be just fine.
Really hope he didn't make this decision to get his younger bro a scholly, like some rumors are suggesting.
Willow is a great movie! Used to love the Nintendo game too when I was a kid.
My wife had never seen:
Big Trouble in Little China
We about got divorced...lol
Nope...OSU would be a 6.1 pt. favorite on a neutral field
I feel the exact same way as you.
Sure Clemson is probably better than the Wisconsins and Penn States of the world, but they aren't significantly better. I think too much credence has been put into what they did last year and not really this year. I know they are undefeated but I honestly feel that Cincy could have went undefeated in that conference this year, and I guarantee that Wisconsin and Penn State could.
I actually feel really confident about this game and the fact that the pundits are all on Clemson makes me even feel better. The SP+ has us at about a 6 point fav to win this game, and I see us as a 2 score winner with it really not being as close as the score.
I find it awfully misguided to write off the Buckeyes after the first half of the Wisconsin game. Fields was injured, Wisconsin got to correct mistakes from the first game, and we started off slow. The 2nd half was what made me confident in the Clemson game. The Bucks got punched in the mouth in the 1st half and then proceeded to curbstomp Wisconsin in the 2nd.
This team has faced multiple types of adversity and that can't be understated. They will be ready and I could see them jumping on Clemson early and then just grinding them into the ground in the 2nd half.
#3 kills me, if you had no idea who Brent Venables was and went to their forum for the first time, you would think the dude was a god or something. I remember when VT fans used to talk about Bud Foster like that too, hasn't been working out so well lately for them.
Their defense has issues and I don't think its anything BV is gonna be able to scheme away. Sometimes, its not about the Xs and Os but the Jimmys and Joes.
That forum is hot garbage. The vast majority of posters over there seem to be short bus riding, window lickers.
About 95% of the posts on the main page are flame posts about either Ohio, people from Ohio, or the Buckeye football team. There is hardly any discussion of actually football, recruiting, X's and O's etc.
Even their own fans are calling each other out about the stupid posts. After the Buckeyes beat them down on the 28th, the smoldering ashes of their forum will be glorious.
Here is how I look at things. We have faced a few defenses that are as good as Clemsons and have done pretty well against them, not only running but throwing. They have not come close to facing a defense as good as ours.
Its simple, we get more stops then them because our defense is better than theirs and our offenses are pretty close to equal.
Buckeyes win by 2 scores, but the game never feels that close...kinda like the Penn St. game.
I bought one for my wife last Christmas. I am usually not an appliance type of gift giver either, but I thought it was pretty interesting. She had no idea what it was at the time but absolutely loves it now. We both work so we often forget to get things out for dinner. It makes life so easy, its so versatile, and the food comes out great. We easily use it once a week to make dinner, and since it has been out a while, there are all kinds of recipes for it out on the interwebz.
The funniest thing I have read over there is that they think they should be able to get 2 or 3 INTs off Fields since he isn't very accurate. Like the dude doesn't have a 40:1 TD to INT ratio...LOL!
We have played teams much closer to Clemson's level, then they have to ours. Their toughest game was the equivalent to playing Indiana basically.
Whats funny is they really think we are some slow, plodding Big Ten team from the 80's. Can't wait to beat the brakes off those D-bags.
I have always found it interesting that ,excluding W.V. (unless to wanna consider them in the South), the poorest states in our country and those with the worst education systems all reside in the South.
Maybe they aren't really arrogant, maybe they are just too damn dumb to know different.
Doesn't matter to me. i truly believe that there is not a team in the country that wouldn't lose by at least 2 scores if they play Ohio State.
A lot of people seem scared of Clemson but if the Buckeyes played a schedule of nothing but Maryland and Rutgers type teams every week, we would look like the greatest football team ever. So color me not impressed with what Clemson has done this year against their Division 3 type schedule.
They might be more delusional than scUM fans. Some of their posts are pure gold. I must have missed the memo where the agenda was to screw over the SEC. All this time I thought the agenda was to get 3 SEC teams in and Clemson....silly me!
Sadly, this is the only sports talk radio in my area so I just have to deal with his BS sometimes.
That team, that university, that garbage mgoblow website, and that entire state is 10 pounds of monkey shit in a 5 pound bag.
Delusional, arrogant asshats, pure and simple.
Please explain to me why you think this will be a close game?
What empirical evidence do you have that would suggest this game will be within 2 scores?
The Buckeyes played their worst game of the year, against a top 10 team, and still won by double digits. If we clean up some of the mistakes we made against Penn St., this will be a blow out.
Go get a flesh tone colored body suit and put "Big Nude Saturday" on the chest
I have been lurking around on a couple of their forums and the delusion is real!
A number of them legitimately think they are going to score 30+ on our defense because Maryland scored 14 and Rutgers scored 21. Unless I am missing something, I am pretty sure our starting D is gonna be on the field for most of the game. I honestly just wanted a win, look good doing it, and stay healthy. Now I hope we absolutely dismantle them just to see the meltdown that ensues on their forums.
Michigan is our rival, and is treated as such. Our 2nd biggest game of the year (most years) is whoever we play in the Big Ten Championship. Penn St is a distant 3rd and I might actually put MSU in 3rd since they have given us fits over the years, much more than Penn St.
Ohio State is going to put the beat down on Penn State. For as much as Penn St is 9-1, they could easily be 6-4. I have watched a number of their games and they looked like garbage against teams like Pitt and Indiana and they should have lost to Michigan and Iowa. Ohio State is gonna blow them out, 2nd teamers in for the 4th quarter....mark it down
My only issue with Game Day is that Desmond is a moron. He is a blind, unapologetic homer when he should be at least attempting to have an unbiased view. Corso looks like he is ready for the old folks home, also.
Typically I watch Game Day until the Fox pre-game comes on and then I flip over to there. I don't see how it can be a bad thing having the 2 major college pre-game shows at the same location, plus BTN. If you want to watch college pre-games shows this saturday, you are getting it live from The Ohio State University campus.
