Ready, set, go....
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.

37-16 Buckeyes.

You don't honestly think Tressel hasn't made those kids aware of the rash of upsets and the fact they control a pretty unbelievable destiny, do ya?

Someone may crack 'em, but not this week.

I think our D takes most of the game off this week.

MSU can put up points when they are on and a D doesn't play well

OSU 42
MSU 28

Tressel doesn't lose to bad teams.

I watched this MSU team not be able to pull away from a poor BGSU team until the last quarter. Barely beat a TERRIBLE Pittsburgh team. Get beat by Northwestern (who lost to Duke) and Wisconsin.


Buckeyes by 20.

Four tough ball games loom to end the season. This is the last breather.

I think this is a high scoring, exciting game. Beanie Wells breaks out with a huge game. 190 on the ground and 3 scores. Defense underwhelms, caught looking ahead, and stung by the Hoyer, Ringer, Devin Thomas trio.

41-31 Bucks, who score a late TD to put it away

This is kind of a shitty match up for the Bucks. Ringer is a good, quick NS runner, the kind that gives the Buckeyes a ton of headaches. THat and the fact that offensive line cannot run block and MSU's front seven play good run defense. I think this game is a bit scarier than most of you think.

In the end, I don't think MSU is complete enough defensively to keep the buckeyes out of the endzone through the air. I look for OSU to have a hard time on both sides of the ball on the ground, but to dominate both sides in the passing game.

Buckeyes 37 - MSU 14

Look for Tressel to be coaching like a pissed-off teenager over the next 6 weeks...he wants another shot at a National title and he'll stop at nothing to get it...

5:48 left in the first quarter and 190 yards from Wells looks like it may be a lock.

Stop giving the FUCKING BALL TO MO WELLS. Wells needs to be on the god damn scout team. Get Saine in the game.

C. Wells needs to sit for good after we score here in the third. Bring in Saine and Mo Wells for the rest of the game.

Save Chris for more important times ahead.

The defense is going to be pissed about that INT.

They are still pissed about giving up a score on the last play of the game against Purdue.

...plus it is the first TD given up in Ohio Stadium this season.

WTF Boekman just go down, you're up 17 in your own territory.

Not his fault for the poor blocking but wake up and take care of the ball. So you have to go 3rd and long, or even punt, the D has your back and you'll get another chance.

Terrible execution in the last 4 minutes for this offense.

They need to get a couple first downs to settle back down here.

Run run run throw some short passes and get that MSU D creeping up and open up the middle deep routes and put it away.

JFC it is a simple adjustment to make on this pass rush.

Nice job on the pass pro mo wells. Blocking the only blitzer that was blocked by ballard.

Seriously, what does Mo Wells give offer this team? He can't block, and I've seen him go down on at least three pinky tackles today. A strong gust of wind knocks the guy on his ass.

To say the least he has been disappointing.

Rumor has it Pittman had to talk him into not transferring, that rumor gets more difficult to believe each week.

Mo Wells didn't transfer b/c he isn't good enough to justify such a decision in hopes of becoming the man somewhere else.

Meanwhile ball punted to our own 5 (AGAIN), you think you've seen JT be conservative in the past? You aint seen anything yet.

He isn't throwing the ball here until we are to our own 25. Which means he might not throw it one this drive.
