I think we're spanking them. Everything comes together for our Buckeyes for the first time this year.

I didn't get a prediction in before the game and after the first couple of series I am going to predict:

OSU: -2
Nebraska: -4

Somehow these two bad looking offenses figure out a way to score negative points. tOSU "scores" 2 less - points.

Well, Nebraska scores the first negative points of the game! Nice break by Roby. Martinez will throw those ducks pretty frequently. He may be tOSU's best source of offense because I don't think the O came to play today.

The front four looks FANTASTIC. How long before Nebraska spreads them out and tries the screen game/short passing game to beat them?

Looked like Bryant missed a shot at making the play on that long run about 5 yards down field, but he was slow to come up and support the run. I am not sure, that was just my real time read on the play. I need to go back and look again, but it looked like when he cut back that the only guy who was not flowing to the offensive right side was Bryant.

You might attribute some of NU's offense to all the 3 and outs. I haven't seen ToP numbers yet, but they cannot be good.

This offense goes through periods of enfuriating badness like none that I have ever experienced as a Buckeyes fan, I have only felt this frustration as a Browns fan.

D holds them to a FG after the fake punt, that is a moral victory. Hopefully they can turn this into some positive offensive momentum.

They need to stop running the slow developing options and start pushing tempo. The option is taking so long that the entire NU D is reacting to it. They need to just take the 4-5 yards on standard running plays and designed QB runs to stay in front of the chains.

That QB counter is an excellent play. You can see the NU defense immediately start flowing toward Braxton's first step. That counter will slow the Husker defense for the rest of the game.

Should have been ejected for throwing that punch. It was a dirty play.

The shootout continues. Burkhead's injury could be an interesting point. Klein got caught leaning the other way on that TD pass, but good read by Martinez.

The Big 12 nature of this game is a bit disturbing. I have seen HS teams tackle less shitty than OSU. Anyways, at least it's exciting (if not frustrating) to watch.

Its weird watching this team play defense because they will make 2 great plays and then one god awful play. That missed tackle by Travis Howard was awful. That play would have gone for a loss of 5 and that is a play that a great CB is supposed to make. Now that said, he has made a lot of great plays this year. Simon and Hankins are playing out of their minds tonight.

As to Matt's point about the B12 nature of the game, there has been a B12 nature to most of NCAAF this year. It has been really sloppy bad football across the board. 'Bama is the only team playing great on both sides of the ball consistently. I didn't see USCe play today, but I suspect that they played great on both sides today. Generally it is a bad year for NCAAF.

I haven't seen much of Oregon. I hear their D is playing pretty well.

Hyde's run (before the fumble) was awesome. I wish he ran it that hard more often. He has picked up the physicalness of his runs lately though. He would not be denied in the MSU game.

From all the flipping around I do, I'd have to agree. Now Florida-LSU today had some good defensive play. South Carolina was strong today, but we seem to be in a defensive-challenged season right now.

Outside of the fumble which I think was caused because he let up slightly as he was hitting the umpire....Hyde is moving nicely tonight.

As I type that Rod Smith goes the distance...

The Florida LSU game had ugly offense and good defense, kind of the reverse of this one.

They need LBs to step up in the worst way. First two out of Perry, Marcus, Perkins, Mitchell (if he commits), Williams, Roberts or Crowell to figure out how to play LB will start.

If they're going to score, may as well let them take 5 minutes off the clock when they're down 25. 5 minutes left, still down 3 scores... and Nessler questions whether or not they'll onside it? Practically have to.

Yeah, that last TD may have been unnecessary. Not passing judgement. I like the fact that my coach is not trying to make friends in the B1G.

Given that it's the last game of the season, if they're hitting like they were tonight, I could see him going to try to put up 80. And I'd love every second of it.

We'll probably ride this to being ranked somewhere between 6 and 8 this week. No other ranked schools on this schedule.

Last week we saw the D put it all together. This week was the O. When the two meet, it's going to be scary good and happy times in Columbus.

12-0 just got a lot more likely. 2 tough(ish) games remaining @Wisco and scUM at home.
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.

I have a bet with my neighbor over Buckeye wins. He took 8 or less...I took 9 or more.

I'm feeling pretty good. Not as good as Peeker feels about his Browns bet with Lars, but still not bad.

State Penn could provide some resistance. You have to assume they get to McLovin in that game and rattle him.
