Say you’re #1 and you lose to #5 PSU. That’s easier to fight back from being #5 losing to #8. Doesn’t Being ranked high has its advantages??
Regardless of what 11dubbers think , the osu locker room knows they play on a team with a reputation for losing games they should win(and by a shocking wide margin).
So there is a focus in every little detail. Like yesterday’s article said, ‘...there are no warning signs so far.’
The Wisconsin game was a classic trap game.
Now we'll be hearing that the Big Ten is overrated
indeed. Jim Tressel made a great point years ago that.conference games are the difficult to win because of familiarity and offseason preparations.
Look I was just having fun. But dawand kicked nw ass
Ya I know.
He’s just a ridiculously gigunda dude amongst gigunda dudes. Paul Bunyan-Esque mythical beast. Fun stuff
Of course I hope the huge win happens, but I think our offense has some learning moments. Mostly because fitz will treat this as a go for broke recruiting opp, and his players will absolutely play the hardest of any game. It won’t help nw’s offense much , but the defense could make our 1st year precocious qb confused with special formations and disguises custom made for this weirdo Friday night game with only 30,000 people in the stands to start. It feels like a bad dream in some ways... but not a nightmare.
That said, yep on paper we shut them out and score at least 30.
Go Bucks beat northwestern.
Stayyyyy .. just a little bit longer.
Plleeeeez say you will.
Wait, you mean Dawand Jones GOAT in waiting??
I cant wait to see him on the field!!!
Browning has been doubling Borlands stats. Ok the gap thing might be a good thing , but at some point you’ve got to start getting some stats. I love that Tuf Borland is a program guy and a leader type. But what has become the meritocracy in sport when a guy has anemic tackle numbers and looks sluggish doing it?
With you on Wade. Would love him to raise his stock even more next year and get a second natty.
Like Brown Buck says Bucks will have a chip on their shoulder. More than that the elephant in the Buckeye locker room is the known recent propensity to loose freakishly badly against underdogs on the road.
Ive heard comments on national sports shows that acknowledge this as an Achilles heel.
This is a good thing heading into this mismatch on paper.
A bunch ot 3 and outs should put there defense on the fiend wayyy too much.
Gaziano will be Gassed-iano.
Bottom line is, we’re going to learn a lot about Ryan Day and team during this 6 game run. I know, not exactly a hot take. Lol. But we know that this team has amazing composite player rankings and maybe the best assistant coaches in college football.
Go Bucks , pulverize everyone
Agreed. This is why I like the pass to the flat or sidelines. JF puts them right on the finger tips. Hopefully those deep balls will be more accurate and connect with Olave also.
I would love to see quick outs as a check down. Fields’ ability to throw east and west is superior and a great option to taking a sack. And yeah, awareness to throw away is key.
Ohio State has three of these five teams left on their regular season schedule
this is an amazing opportunity.
Yup. 4 quarters of LJ’s rushmen is tough to play your best offense against, even if you’re Bama.
Absolutely, fun discussion. I get your idea of incongruent topics. And I realize that small school or no school guys make rosters every year. I think nfl teams add to the ‘ benefit of the doubt’ for college pedigree, especially as it pertains to certain positions. Then these perceptions become reality in the first 3 rounds of the draft. But if I understand you correctly, I think the cause and effect includes the historical reputation of the university along with player talent and development.
Don’t you think they do indirectly? Like beating ranked teams makes your wins worth more, no?
Honestly Janes Coley is getting off easy because of the entire Fromm v Fields debate. Ok I had to google that name, he’s the OC at uga. The uga defense held up its end of the bargain. But failing to score 20 points is reg is not so good with that roster.
Perhaps SEC tears are an acquired taste??
Tom Herman taught us that 5 years ago. 5* players with 1* coaches play at 2.5 levels.
this is just the annual "Georgia starts out ranked in the top 5 and has a bad loss"
thank you. UGA is the scUM of the SEC
