Ohio State - Louisville Next Year?

Unread postby e0y2e3 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 1:34 pm

Rumors on the public board at Rivals appeared to just be rumors but some real smoke is starting to appear.

Keep an eye out, because this would be a great addition to our complete and utter shit schedule next year.

EDIT: even with the smoke this is a huge long-shot at this point, just throwing it out there.

Assuming Louisville will be ranked fairly high next year due to the Sugar Win, and a lot of returnees, that could be a great add. An early season win over a [highly?] ranked opponent just might get them to the top of the poll before conference season. [If they don't start there, which I don't think they will]

Won't hold my breath, but it sure would be nice.

I listened to the Louisville postgame on the radio, and they were thinking a top-ten rank to start next season is a slam dunk. Possibly top-5. They are young, with even Bridgewater returning.

That team is Bridgewater and they need to ride him for all they can next year before he goes pro.

Isn't next year's schedule complete after they added SD State? Who does the rumor have Louisville replacing?

No idea. But yeah, that is why this one is a long shot. Apparently ESPN is trying to pull some strings behind the scenes and get this to happen.

Hell WVU bought out of their FSU game this year in the like May, forcing FSU to have to scramble and bring in a 1-AA school in its place.

Anything can happen with those first 2 or 3 games, particularly with all the conference shuffling and money moves now.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

Thought this was an early prediction for the National Championship Game next year.

I would be absolutely fine with Louisville replacing Florida A&M.

That is a great game for viewers but I am not sure that it is a game that Buckeye fans should want. A great, young QB on a hungry, well coached team that early in the season against a D replacing pretty much everyone.... tOSU would have a good shot at dropping that game.

I am not saying that tOSU would lose that game, but I am saying that it is pretty much a perfect storm. Late in the season, that would be a fine game, but for a team that will be struggling to find its defensive identity? That would be a scary 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.

It would also be a great warm-up to facing Johnny Football in NCG

no, as was originally stated just a very small bit of smoke (mostly ESPN digging around trying to make more money) and the odds of anything happening are very very slim.
