My two schools (I am going to be entering the MBA program at Kelly [IU school of business] fall of '11).

I am hoping for a dominating performance by the Buckeyes in which the defense is able to hold the IU passing attack to "just" 200 yards. Realistically, I think the IU passing attack give the Bucks some headaches today, not enough to keep the game close, but enough to make the fans and media upset. People just are not going to concede that that this IU team is actually pretty good on the offensive side of the ball until they make a bowl game at the end of the year.

That said, I think the running game gets healthy, Brandon Saine's role reduced (futher) as a ball carrier and we will see a return to the Buckeye's 25-30 throws today. I like the Bucks to win 45-24. Pryor 21-27 for 225 (3 TDs), 7 carries for 75 (0 TDs). Boom 20 carries for 120. Jordan Hall 3 receptions 35 yards, 7 carries for 50.

Defensive star(s) today: Devon Torrence and Jermale Hines.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Personally I am scared for this D until they put a serious lock down on a legit offense, I consider the Indiana offense good enough to be the grade for our D if our D locks them up. I see this game as a bit closer than you Furls, but a win with no questions as the game closes out.

Until I see domination from our running game like last season's end of year run and a dominating game from our D I am nervous we don't get out of the Big Ten unscathed, wasn't worried two weeks ago.

I was really surprised on the 2nd play of the game to see the linebacker on a blitz come in and knock Boren back about 4 yards onto his backside. It was number 53 I realize he had a head of steam but still that was impressive. (I mean the fullback Boren not the Guard)

Damn that was close, a tad too much air under it, pretty accurate throw by TP. Put some more zip on it and Dane runs under it for 6. Looks like it could be there a lot today though.

Can't remember last time Lil Dane dropped a ball....shocking

How about Boren with the high hurdling move?

It is. But typically you only get those matchups by utilizing at the RB position. And, unfortunately, they often hand him the ball. ;-) ;) :wink:

Reece Davis with the quote of the day as they segued into the 1/2 time show... "I think we learned something about the Michigan Defense."

How bad must that defense be? I knew they were bad, but scUM actually had me convinced that this IU team would move the ball today. Opening the scUM/MSU thread right now.

So when does trash time officially begin? Will the Bucks leave Pryor in as they try to get the running game right in the second half? I think we may actually see open tryout's for 1st/2nd string RB in the second half. Gotta like Boom to win the #1, but this is Hall's shot to really take some carries.

Today's problems running the ball (without reviewing the game) are on the O-Line.

I did misunderstand. Thought you might be inferring I was nit picking (and maybe I am). But that's just a fundamental concept. Throw it away. Keep a reasonable down and distance. Not everyone is as bad as Illinois and Indiana (I hope).

'Teh Wrap' it is ;-) ;) :wink:

OSU is kind of in a conundrum RE: Running game......teams continue to stack the box and sell out vs the run....which dictates more and more passing, even in a game like today where we are 2-1 already....but we have to practice the run in game situations to get better, which creates some damn ugly plays where we fail miserably vs 7,8 and even 9 men fronts at times....

Well that's what I'm saying about a conundrum....they are probably just saying, ok, we can pass, lets try to get tougher in the run game see if we can beat some stacked fronts....which obviously we are not succeeding to much against.

But I'm good with us trying to figure it out, I think this team struggles a bit in getting nasty on runs after alot of passing...they need to learn to flip that switch play to play, right now they can't but there is still alot of season in front of us...

But the Pass pro is so far ahead of the rushing blocking right now...but its not like these guys can't do it, they did a fine job last season against MUCH MUCH better defenses, that's the confusing thing about this.....

Fumble by Hyde doesn't dampen my good feeling about how he looks.

I don't know, that fumble may have cost him his carries for the rest of the game. How about OSU's second team OL opening holes? And I hate to say it, but J. Boren has not really been great the last couple of weeks. Coming into the season Boren was the All Big Ten pick, but I really think Bryant Browning has outplayed him all year (and they ask Browning to do a lot more).
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

THat was a pick fair and square, but I like the fight in Berry. He has looked good in this game.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Worst call I have ever seen. Penalize his quarterback for hanging him out to dry. That was a clean play.

Ball broke the plain. No idea who possessed it at the time but it broke the plain. ;-) ;) :wink:

Eh....we got our style points I think. Pulled the offense mid 3rd, our style point lay in the transitive property this week.....which I despise with a passion, but it is what it is.

The guy that keeps jumping out at me every week is Big Hank....this kid is really really good. Could quietly end up having a freshman year better than Heyward and Simon did...factoring in he plays the nose, throw stats out the window on that comparison.

JCoz,

You are under the mistaken impression that voters watch games. They look at the box score which will show the final stats (at best) and the final score (more likely). I don't know about you, but I can feel the Oregon media campaign picking up steam. "Who should really be #2" is a leading salvo to every NCAA show. Make no mistake about it, the Bucks have to win impressively every week, because Oregon is going to annihilate all those patsies in the Pac 10 and put all time greatest numbers for offense (every one will completely ignore that they give 30+ points to every decent team they play.

Not sure it will be better than Simon last year or Heyward's in 07, but he is a very serious player. Like most Buckeyes fans, I was pretty disappointed when Sharif Floyd committed to FL after supposedly silent verballing to OSU. I am no longer disappointed.

Come on now Furls, been around long enough to know these assholes dont watch games, lol.

I expect them to just compare the final from last week and this one with Indy.

Should Michigan fool us and rolls today.....well, we will look really good.

Simply do not see Oregon jumping OSU if we are winning like this, and Pryor in the thick of the Heisman, with the Rose results still being brought up constantly.

Anytime I see Oregon and the polls brought up by anyone that isn't a total moron, the next comment is you can't put them over OSU because "We've seen that game before"...I dont agree with that logic but it works in our favor this time....
