So proud of this team. Should thank Wiscy for bringing it. That adversity will prove helpful in the playoffs! Go Bucks!
Yeah. I am kinda nervous about this one. There's still a lot of hype around beating TTUN and not as much about this game. Just hope the team doesn't share that mentality.
Not sure the flexible sleeve did much, but, to your point, it probably was good that he got the Physical Therapy and strengthened those muscles from the Penn State game as THAT would help protect him.
Just win baby!
So, somebody took a lot of time out of their evening to downvote every single comment 1 time at the beginning of this comment thread. Whoever you are **cough, michigan fan **cough*** I hope it was worth it and I'm sorry you have nothing more positive in your life than to waste it doing that. I also see that you gave up halfway through, much like TTUN does every time we play them! Go ahead and downvote this one as well if you're still reading. Oh, no you left. Couldn't keep reading all the joy, eh?
So, I did some reading of their boards over the past few days and I have to say that these people are truly delusional on so many levels I actually feel bad for them. It isn't even just about football, really. They have this notion that their program doesn't cheat or "pay players" to recruit them and the only way for them to ever beat us would be to start doing dishonest things like that. Then there's the comments about how shitty Ohio is and especially Columbus... Um, have they read the news where Columbus was voted the #1 city in the WORLD? How anyone could compare Detroit to Columbus and come out thinking they are better off there is just insane. I will concede that parts of Michigan are beautiful and their lakes are crystal clear, I love paddling up in Traverse City, for example, but that is closer to Michigan State so they really can't even claim that!
In the end, it's all just a bunch of desperation talk to make themselves feel better and I get it. I am old enough to remember the Cooper years and I did grow up in Massillon which is a town that has basically nothing good about it BUT football, so yeah, I understand. You have to make your own pride when you have nothing else. But at some point you have to realize the only way out of your own delusion is to try and see reality for once and admit you have been fooling yourself.
My take on this is they did use film from The Game last year to prepare every week since that very day. They got it so ingrained in their heads they probably forgot to adjust by watching film from this season until the week before. So all that talk about "they'd better be careful" was based entirely on last year's film and it's too funny and almost sad.
Thought I heard the lady on the field state that he was available if needed but they were holding him back. I guess they felt like they could still win without pushing him too hard today. Save him for the B1G Championship.
The taxpayers in TSUN paying his salary deserve better answers than this.
Also, it's time for the fans for TTUN to stop calling us cheaters. We were not the ones on the field trying to untie a RB's shoes as if that somehow gives an advantage. SMDH.
I loved the score last year, but after _aking the _istake of reading _goblog for a bit, I want the Buckeyes to _ake TTUN to look worse than we _ade _aryland look this year!
Perfect use of that line. Well done!
It’s my fault PSU made a comeback. I was in Toronto to see Bruce Dickinson and wasn’t planning to be able to watch the game live... but ended up having time at the hotel to watch the 3rd quarter and saw them score all those points. I jinxed us! Glad we won regardless!
Yes indeed. Iron Maiden is my #1 but I love all kinds of great music.
I was in high school when INXS was doing all that. Yep, Gen-X here. It does kinda suck seeing songs from your era become advertisements, but I guarantee it will happen to you too - lest you think I'm just old and complaining.
Is it me or does he just have one of those faces you just want to wipe the smirk off of anytime you see him? This time I really do want him to be completely befuddled at what happens to his team in a game. Like, just throw up his hands in complete and utter dismay!
We benefited from "the benefit of the doubt" regarding our injured QB and Alabama (or any team) deserves the same from this committee. However, if they want to stay where they are or make it into the CFP then they'd also better do what we did and obliterate their opponent with their backup QB. Them's the rulez!
In my humble opinion, the team was fired up against Maryland because of the situation with Chase. That attitude dropped a bit for Rutgers and made it harder for the team to translate into the energy needed on the road. Now, with Chase coming back as fired up as one can imagine him being, coupled with PSU coming into town and all the excitement of an unprecedented media presence at the 'Shoe? God help any QB in his way!
I am glad the muffed punt and all the dropped snaps happened in this game. Get those mistakes out when you're playing Rutgers and don't have as big of a consequence. I know the play wasn't as exciting to watch but it looked to me like the goal was to keep everyone healthy while staying undefeated. Done and done!
This team is so fun to watch, and that is what it comes down to for me. Just keep winning baby!
Also, love that internet archive article. I gave up on vinyl back in 87 when I got my first CD player. But this past week, in fact, I bought myself a new turntable and have some vintage vinyl on its way to me now from ebay as I decided to get back into it full swing. So it's nice to see the vinyl collection they are digitizing, although I already see some gems that are missing. I am looking forward to listening to my Iron Maiden on vinyl and I also ordered a vintage Pink Floyd - The Wall (which was not cheap).
Why not both?
I think we'll all agree that LSU deserves #1, however we all should also recognize the flawed logic behind this. Why is Alabama considered such a big win this season? Who have they really beaten so far this year and why were they ranked so high to begin with?
But yes, based on subjective reasoning, LSU deserves #1 for beating a "High ranked Alabama team".
But.. But.. This time they are setting aside plays in every practice to prepare for their rival. Surely this will make a difference!
Good point. At least I have til after this playoff season to make the change. Vue is staying lit until next february.
I totally would, but gotta have hallmark channel or it won't balance out my game watching with the Mrs. :-)
Unrelated, mostly, but since Sony Vue is dropping its service I have to change to Fubo TV... But Fubo lacks ESPN. Does ESPN carry any Buckeye games anymore? If so, anyone know does the ESPN streaming service work good enough that I could just pay a month at a time when a game is on ESPN?
