The Ohio State University Buckeyes Football Discussion

Recommended Posts

No disrespect to the Longhorns but Texas was waaaaaay overrated, alot more than I already thought. The teams in thier division had never really been competitive and on sept 9 that was made abundantly clear. Many are now drinking the ND kool aid but Penn State is a completely different team than last year because they lost about 12 starters. ND's decisive win over Penn State shouldnt have been a surprise, and they dont deserve the #2 spot. People will realize ND is also overrated when they play Michigan next week.

 

Anyway I had an unusually good time watching the Buckeyes.

 

I don't really think that TX was overrated. They stopped OSU's running attack.  This game just shows how good OSU really is.  The interesting thing will be to see how much the defense improves over the season. Last year, OSU's offense was much much better at the end of the season than they were at the beginning.

 

no dis to your opinion was texas overrated just last year too? call it  revenge.

Also, Florida is much like a Michigan where there are two or more prominant "flagship" schools instead of just one unipolar institution (like  Penn State). 

 

Tell that to a Pitt Panther fan.  Pitt has more national championships than Penn State and until the last 20 years of mediocrity (the university decided to de-emphasize the football program)... was every bit the respected national powerhouse that Penn State and Ohio State are. 

 

The Pittsburgh Panthers football team has claimed 5 unanimous NCAA National Championships and parts of 10 others for a total of 15 National Titles:

 

1981 (Montgomery, NCF)

1980 (FNG, CFR, DeVold, Howell, Self, NYT, Sagarin, Eck, Fleming)

1976 (unanimous)

1937 (unanimous)

1936 (unanimouss shared with Minnesota)

1933 (Kirlin)

1931 (FNG, Kirlin, Davis)

1929 (Davis)

1927 (Esso)

1925 (Sorenson)

1918 (unanimous)

1917 (Weyand, Wilson, Jessen, Koger, Smith, NSF)

1916 (unanimous)

1915 (Libby, Koger, Smith, Davis)

1910 (Century, Morgan, Smith, Premo, NCF, FNG)

 

 

Penn State National Championships:

 

1986

1982

 

though they had several undefeated seasons when they were screwed over... 1994 being the most obvious

I was talking moreso about the idea of state institutions being a flagship (not about sports).  Clearly, Penn State is the "flagship" school of Pennsylvania, regardless of their mediocrity in sports.  U of Pittsburgh is more like a U of Cincinnati, where there is a prominant sports history along with having the second largest academic institution in the state.

Bearcats take an early lead.... OHHHHHHHH YEAH!  :clap:

 

*singing in the background....I think I love you, so what I am so afraid of....*

That is fabulous....too bad the Bearcats couldn't hold on, at all.  Hell they gave it a ride while they could, I heard that Ohio Stadium was quite quiet for awhile!!  Well done Cats, you did your best.

 

Good luck the rest of the season OSU.

Top recruit going to OSU

BY TOM GROESCHEN | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

 

Colerain senior safety Eugene Clifford has given an oral commitment to play football at Ohio State, Colerain coach Kerry Coombs said today.  Clifford is the state's No. 1-ranked senior prospect by some scouting services including Rivals.com, which rates Clifford the No. 31 player nationally.

My friends in Columbus said this was quite a story there - it was not shown in many places because ESPN wants more cable providers to pick up their experiment gone bad, ESPNU.  Apparently the station has very little market penetration.  In Cincinnati, we will hear even more about it later this year as the Crosstown Shootout will only be shown there.  They are refusing to let any local stations pick up the broadcast, and I suspect they are doing it in selected football and basketball matchups around the country.  This is probably a good strategic move, but I find it pretty underhanded and hope the move blows up in their face.  I went to the BW3's at Rookwood, and all the staff had ESPNU t-shirts only making the plan more obvious.

 

Hopefully people will just go to sports bars or pick up the station (since they will pro-rate it for a day or two on providers that have it as part of a premium or sports package) for only the game they want and drop it again.  Enough complaining - go Bucks!

I'm torn.

 

I want to say, the score will be 20-17 or 17-14 in favor of O HI O state.  But at the same time, I'm thinking we could see a baseball score of 9 to 7.

 

In any event, OSU will get the "W"!

It's going to be awfully tough for Michigan when Ohio State has a "superior" offense + playing in Ohio Stadium, so I'm going to say:

 

Ohio State - 27  Michigan - 10

Michigan plays well enough for a first.

The first team to lose to OSU TWICE in the same season.

I want to see OSU-Michigan X 2 (though it means no Rose Bowl for either school)

Jim Tressel is probably the only person in Columbus who is rightfully concerned about this game.  Michigan IS that good this year.  Better defensive front 7, better running game, and Super Mario is looking to pull a Biakabutuka and make everyone forget about Ted Ginn.  The Bucks are going to have to play worlds better than they did against Illinois if they want to actually earn their #1 ranking.

per a UofM distributed email:

 

We know that it can be uncomfortable being in an opposing team's

environment, especially when the stakes are so high.  We would like to

offer a few suggestions in order to help you stay safe and have a

positive experience this weekend:

 

    --Try carpooling to the game; if possible, drive a car with non-

Michigan license plates.

    --Keep your Michigan gear to a minimum, or wait until you are

inside the stadium to display it.

    --Stay with a group.

    --Stay low-key; don't draw unnecessary attention to yourself.

    --If verbally harrassed by opposing fans, don't take the bait.

    --Avoid High Street in Columbus.
