scUM's offense has more weapons that can hurt an OSU defense than MSU IMO. If you can stuff MSU's run game, I think our pass rush could get decent pressure on the QB. Bosa is just an absolute beast.

I just wanna say, I think a scUM player threw the first punch at Wilson, but he threw one back and then another. It also looked like a scUM player ripped his helmet off. Hall had NO reason to leave the sideline, and giving the crowd the finger was as the double play of dumbfuckness.

If we have either for the CCG, i'd be surprised.

Fuck them. We won. Eat it bitches.

That win is close enough for Hoke to keep his job. Another year of mediocrity up North. Where do I sign up for that?

FWIW, I think that scUM LB that ripped WIlson's helmet off started it all. He should be banned if anyone for his team's next game. As for Hall, he is now my facebook profile picture! If your getting tossed that is the way to go. I met Marcus a few years ago and he is a good kid. He was working at a gas station off of 271/90 ramp out there near Richmond Heights.

I'm with Furls, I think him making that a game is enough for him to get another year.

BTW, Furls, how impressive was that tub of goo, Green? That frosh really showed his stuff with those devastating 1.2 yard runs.

Hall's gesture was great. Can't say that I haven't done something similar in that stadium- when we won in '05, I certainly rushed the field with a bird or two.

I don't give a shit about class when it comes to that team. Fuck 'em all. I've been in that stadium for a loss, it's not a fun place to be. I've been in Joe Lewis Arena for losses in the CCHA tournament to those guys. It blows. They are some of the most morally superior smug fans ever, and having them eat it is freaking awesome.

Pat Efling looked great by the way. Kid has a good future.

Hyde's one mistake made that a much closer game than I think it would have ended up anyhow, OSU was on the march again.


Watching Bama-Auburn, and one babbling asshole is Tim Brando, who is in studio and is already calling "controversy" if tOSU gets to the NCG.

As bad as the WWL is, Brando is the cocksuckingiest SEC shill out of all the cocksucking SEC shills.

If Hyde doesn't fumble, we win 49-35. The Michigan D wasn't stopping anyone, and would have pressed after we went up 2 TDs again. But I knew they would tie it up as soon as he fumbled.

Hall's actions were unacceptable, on the field and off, he should have never been on the field for that to begin with. He might be off the team?

I think the play was enforced as best/fair as possible.

Hyde owned michigan like few OSU RBs ever have. Braxton took too long to get comfortable, and used his legs too late on too many plays.

Credit to scum for showing up, b/c I never expected that game.

If our D stepped up in the least that game was over at start of 4Q.

Good game guys, everything a rivalry should be. And Hyde's fumble just balanced out Gardner's, it was an even game. You earned a shot at the whole thing though, good luck the rest of the way.

Was definitely not the game I wanted, that is for sure. Much better showing from TTUN than I thought we would get. I will give Borges some serious credit, he coached his ass off and embarrassed the OSU defensive staff. The scUM offensive staff put its players in positions to make plays all game long. One of the better coaching performances I have seen all year long. It has to be frustrating for TTUN fans because where was that playcalling all year?

This should be somewhat sobering to Buckeye fans. I know it's a bit worrisome to me. I said earlier that the game concerned me because it's a rivalry game and goofy shit happens.

But ya know what? No goofy shit happened yesterday. The fight wasn't goofy, it was stupidity personified by Wilson and Hall. But all day that game was close because the Buckeye defense was pathetic. Took them about...well... they still haven't figured out the throwback screen. They tackled poorly. They turned tackles for loss into 4 yard gains, they left guys running wide open.

That wasn't a fluky game. That was OSU on a bad day against Michigan on a good one. On the road. In a rivalry game. My fear was giving the Wolverines hope early and it being a game.

Well, they were three yards from Fickell's head on a platter and three yards from out of the title picture.

Great win.

Better get better. Quickly.

Fickell's GP was terrible and scUM's was great. That simple. OSU's execution was terrible on D (Brax did miss some open receivers too). TERRIBLE and they were lucky to escape, fortunately Al Borges saved one poor play call for the end of the game. I have no idea why he didn't give Gardner a run-pass option to finish the game, but I am glad he didn't.

Fickell's head should still roll, hopefully to Miami of OH. He is indirectly responsible for the execution of the defense which was bad, but he is directly responsible for the play of the LBs which has been abysmal. The only LB on the field that is worth a shit is Shazier and he is largely the same player he was a freshman, leading me to believe he is just naturally a bad ass. The lack of development of Sabino was a data point. The lack of development of another elite LB prospect, Curtis Grant, is a trend.

Michigan is loaded with talent. Yesterday, it clicked. They should be embarrassed of their play this year otherwise. We helped Hoke cement his place there for a long time to come. They have served notice. We don't ever have to worry about them "showing up" again.

Had we lost , coupled with Auburn's miracle may have driven me to deeper psychosis.

I think it was because Gardner was banged up and leg was affected. But still, I would have gone for two if I'm Hoke. I said as much watching the final drive. But after I lined up in the formation and Urban called timeout, I think you have to change the play/formation/etc.

Urban called that time out because he recognized the formation and the routes on it from film study. He set his defense to it. UM didn't adjust and route was easily jumped (and Gardner stared down the receiver and made a shitty throw to complete the holy trinity of shitty play call, execution and result).

Fickell can leave next Sunday morning for all I care. Win or lose the BTCG he can interview and go. OSU has more than repaid the debt owed to Fickell for falling on the post-Tressel season sword. He'll always be a Buckeye and loved as such and he's welcome back down the road in some capacity, but it's time to let Urban's guys completely run the show with Urban's kids.

michigan showed up, credit to them. We didn't pull a no show but IMO we had some degree of complacency for much of the first half. I think our players expected scum to fold once we got on the board.

I still disagree with the 2pt conversion, but agree that the play call was poor. On the road I could see the justification of going for it, not at home. IMO Hoke cheated his kids out of a better chance of winning by avoiding OT. michigan's kids we're ready to play yesterday, and they played to maybe their highest level on offense all season.

OSU had to earn that in the end, and the fact that the game was won by the D having to come through to make a play might mean something for the final two games, who knows.

I disagree. I think with the OSU running game with Hyde and Miller, the Buckeyes would have a clear advantage in the red zone OT of college football. I still think the 2pt conversion was the right call. I was absolutely terrified.

If there was no other intention of that 2pt attempt than to simply scare the crap out of OSU fan, then it absolutely worked, I was very nervous.

Good point about OT and our running game, IMO the feel and flow of the game was such that michigan was more than capable of making a play on D to keep them in it.

Of course I would be bitching about it if it went to OT and we lost, I reserve that right as a fan.

Eye says Coombs gets a free pass & Fickle takes the heat. Any truth?

I think Fickle needs to be transferred to Development. Raise $ from former athletes. No free pass for Vrable either.

I don't blame Hoke for going for it...that was the right call in my opinion.

By the way, they score there and there is 30 seconds or so on the clock so still a pretty good chance that Braxton drives the team down the field for at least a field goal. In CFB 30 seconds for an offense like ours is an eternity. Hoke and Matison would have been playing deep and the sidelines leaving the middle open for Braxton to run and to hit tight ends running posts. With our hurry up offense and the clock stopping after every first down I still thought we would win even if they scored.

Oh yeh, my biggest fear before the game was our soft zone and scUM going with a short passing game.

Is that soft zone scheme just about our coaching staff knowing that we can outscore any of the teams on our schedule and figuring if you want to score you are going to drive a long field with short passes and runs and execute everything perfectly? If so, it clearly worked with our relatively weak out of conference schedule and B1G schedule but I don't think it's going to work against FSU.

I thought initially he signaled "two" to solely get the Buckeyes to burn their final timeout. Had he then gone for the PAT and played OT I would have been more impressed than going for two and staying with the same formation and play call.

The fight wasn't goofy, it was stupidity personified by Wilson and Hall


I'm going to defend Wilson a bit here... scUM threw the first punch and ripped off his helmet, so the first punch thrown by Wilson was justified. The second was the mistake, not that I mind seeing a dirty scUM player getting punched in the throat, it's that he didn't have a helmet and the half blind refs saw it.

Hall was just fucking stupid, stay on the sideline. His replacement seemed to play just fine though.

This type of game is what you should expect from this rivalry. Every game we play is with a huge target on our backs and scUM gave it their best shot knowing they had nothing to lose.

I said before the game the keys would be not fucking up on special teams and allowing the big play. To both of these I give OSU a D-. The fight was the ultimate ST fuckup seeing how you lost 2 key players. The big play was the only thing that kept scUM in the game because our D secondary got lost like Hansel and Gretel. It's a;ways a guy like Dileo that hurts us on 3rd and long. Pesky little white guys.....

And I consider Hyde's fumble the mother of all flukes.

All in all I'm happy we won, images of the 90's flooded my brain.

Hoke absolutely positively made the right move.

The Ds were getting rolled and he was playing with big house money. The moral victory was in the bag UNLESS he pussed out and lost in OT. Then the "Michigan Men" come out of their holes...

Had they made it Hoke is a legend. The Bo 69 comparisons would be all you'd read.

It was a no brainier.

I'm going to defend Wilson a bit here... scUM threw the first punch and ripped off his helmet, so the first punch thrown by Wilson was justified. The second was the mistake, not that I mind seeing a dirty scUM player getting punched in the throat, it's that he didn't have a helmet and the half blind refs saw it.

Hall was just fucking stupid, stay on the sideline. His replacement seemed to play just fine though.

This type of game is what you should expect from this rivalry. Every game we play is with a huge target on our backs and scUM gave it their best shot knowing they had nothing to lose.

I said before the game the keys would be not fucking up on special teams and allowing the big play. To both of these I give OSU a D-. The fight was the ultimate ST fuckup seeing how you lost 2 key players. The big play was the only thing that kept scUM in the game because our D secondary got lost like Hansel and Gretel. It's a;ways a guy like Dileo that hurts us on 3rd and long. Pesky little white guys.....

And I consider Hyde's fumble the mother of all flukes.

All in all I'm happy we won, images of the 90's flooded my brain.


I know. After Yabbadabbadoo gashed us all I could think was What the Dilleo ?

You know, I don't really know what to make of Coombs. I think he is a great motivator and recruiter, but our secondary has not been great. I am not sure what his role in the secondary scheme. He is NOT the DB coach, he is the corner's coach. Everett Withers is the Safety coach and co-DC. If I were a betting man, I would bet Withers is in charge of coordinating the back of the D, therefore he is really the guy to blame for a lot of the scheme stuff back there.

As for the CBs, we saw a step increase in Roby's play last year and a regression this year, probably due to Roby trying to get himself in the top 5 or something and leaving his technique behind. You have also seen a GIGANTIC leap in Doran Grant's play. I was about to write Grant off, but now I think he is the kind of guy that could really blow up next year. He is very tough. Extremely strong kid. The way OSU uses its Boundary CB as a force player in the run game really leverages Grant's abilities. He will move next year and replace Roby and we won't miss a beat. So I think Coombs is doing a good job as a CB coach. I just don't know what to make of his role in the "soft zone."

Is this a case of too many cooks in the kitchen? You've got 2 DC's, one for the secondary, one for the front 7? Do they sometimes not understand what the other one is doing? Genuinely curious to hear your thoughts on that.

Not to mention that Cam Burrows looked pretty good spelling Grant last week. Plus he's an insane recruiter and a fiery presence that everyone loves.

Fickell will most likely take a HC job this off-season, I'd think. Allow him to take the high road in all of this.

FWIW, I am 100% behind Wilon's actions. They swarmed him, one of the scUM players ripped his fucking helmet off. I give the kid a lot of props for standing his ground. I don't care where you are, you don't get punked like that.

On some submarines there is a rule that if the ship is at periscope depth, you are not allowed to take your eyes out of the periscope even for a second. One day, someone called out to me to alert me to something that was going on. I took my eyes out of the scope for a second, and my XO (the captain's #2 guy) tried to shove my head back into the eyepiece. I turned looked at him and said, "That is the one time, EVER, that you get to touch me." I don't care who it is, you don't let people put their hands on you, not ever. If it was just a facemask, yeah you let that shit go, they picked a fight with him and honestly, he needed to defend himself. The refs didn't throw any flags before they melee started although they certainly could've (should've?).

I also don't have an issue with any of his teammates coming to his aid. I would prefer it be in the JT Moore way (breaking up the fight), but sometimes punches need to be thrown too.

Rewatch the first 10 seconds of the fight. It was clearly an orchestrated act by the scUM ST unit. They all swarmed as he was getting up and obviously something was going on in there. The refs should've done something. I don't expect the kid to beg for his life, I expect him to fight for it.

I want to know why all those guys got the idea, at the same time to swarm the kid. I am not implying that Hoke sanctioned that shit, but it was CLEARLY orchestrated.

Yeah the way they swarmed him was strange, not something you'd think would happen without some type of intent. While Wilson was the bigger lose talent wise, Hall simply had no business getting involved IMO.

Semi-related note, is there any tension with Urban and Mark Dantonio due to comments when Urban first come into the conference?

I like the BTN alot. They do a ton of BA stuff. The only problem is that they really have limited content and there are a couple of on-air folks that NEED replaced. DiNardo sucks. Teddy sucks. Howard Griffith does a great job.

DirecTV does.

Their special, Tiebreaker about the 1973 Game was AMAZING.

I agree. That and the Journey (basketball and football) are worth the cost of whatever sports pack you need on DirecTV to get it.

I never watch ESPN anymore unless it's a live game (and FS1 sucks too). I keep it locked on BTN for the most part. I agree with you though, I wish they could improve some of their on air talent, and I also hope they start producing more original content like the documentary and the journey. The Big Ten Elite series is pretty good where they focus on great teams from the past, they just don't produce enough of them imo.

Yes . It was great to see how butt hurt and bitter the players from Ann Arbor Community College are after all these years. Must see TV! Love it!

Tiebreaker was great, cant wait to see more B1GN "30 for 30s".
I cant do anything but games, on ESPN or FS1 anymore. But I have been impressed by NBCSN up to this point.
