Ready for a tough well played game under the lights in Happy Valley...just thought I would start a thread and have some intelligent civil conversations
You might need to wait a couple hours until our game is done to get the discussion going.
I'll throw out a couple of suggestions for Buckeyes who are visiting our board and looking for good conversation:
1) There will be idiots on our board, just like there are on yours. Please ignore stupid comments. It just ruins threads. Respond to those who you think are reasonable.
2) If all you're doing is spouting stupidity (like saying we have no chance to win unless Miller gets injured - sorry, that's just a stupid comment), then stay away.
Frankly, I don't know that the stats currently will tell the whole story for either of our teams. I'm just excited to see what PSU can do against a good team with an elite player. Whatever happens, happens.
It will be a tough game. Miller is a beast. He scares me. But I think our offense will have chances to put points up on your defense. We have to capitalize. Should be an epic battle that comes down to the last drive.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I agree...their defense is worse than their stats would indicate.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Eat my wiener, buckeye.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
I like our offense and defense. Special teams...coming along.
Can you say the same?
F the NCAA
F the BOT
If PSU plays next week like they are playing tonight they will be very, very difficult to beat especially at home. BOB is doing a great job this year and has to be an early candidate for COY. Obviously our defense is of major concern and we have a terrible time containing spread teams. While PSU is not a spread team they do a great job in the passing game with their tight ends. I think the game may hinge on whether Miller is 100% and plays a great football game and if our defense can get to McGloin a few times. We haven't had a sack in the last 2 games which is just one of our many weaknesses on defense. Miller is special when he's running with the ball not so much throwing it. He has to have probably his best game throwing the ball this year and we have to have our best game defensively in order to get the win. PSU is really playing well and I'm very impressed with BOB, his staff and your senior leadership.
Is Miller 100%? He was acting like he almost died.
This team is is fun to watch!
I'm sure he will be fine. Brax is never going to be confused with a UFC fighter. He gets dinged up a lot and comes off the field too much. His head did hit the turf fairly hard but to be cleared so quickly suggests that there was not a concussion and no injury of any kind. I'm trying to be delicate about this for my fellow OSU fans but Brax needs to take a few tough pills. If you followed him in high school he was injured a lot for the type of athlete he is playing at the high school level. I'm sure teams are going to try to "put a little extra" into hitting Miller to see how he responds. Wonderful athlete but again, will never be confused with a toughman contestant. I hope he's healthy and wish him and all players good health. My son had to quit playing college football prior to his junior year due to concussion issues so anything around the head should be treated with care and caution.

Sorry to hear about your son. Hopefully he's doing well now.
A CHANCE to put points up on the board against us???? I'd say if you play 7 on offense you have a chance...if you play all 11 players uh yeah, you'll put up points....
Here's a tip for ya.....set trip receivers out, step one of them back 2 yards on the snap, throw it to him quickly and you can just run that play 42 times that night and you will score 30 points....
Special teams are not going anywhere... They have a clear advantage there...
Well well well. Glad to hear an OSU fan attest to his reputation, and the fact that I am not crazy. But yeah, concussions are very serious. But the hospital cleared him in record time, so I doubt that he had anything... Like you said, it appeared to be yet another example of his lack of toughness... BUT, like I said in this thread (and as you said), he is still a scary athlete and can single-handedly beat us. He still scares me, even if he does have a ruptured vagina...
Going into this game, scouting reports said Iowa DEs hadn't been getting pressure. If OSU can't either, then mcgloin could get us 30 again. May come down to our D versus OSUs O.
This is the Big Ten Championship Game.
The winner proves their right to be called Big Ten Champion.
The game in Indianapolis is just a pantomime.
I can't wait for the game next week. Campus is going to be buzzing this week.
I hope Miller plays. I'm more worried about our pass defense.
Game of the year in the B1G.
Does ESPN dare send Gameday to State College?
OSU defense is good against pro-style. Shut down MSU to 34 yards rushing. Spread is another story.
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
I keep hearing this. Serious question - how many pro-style teams have you guys played? Not sure what offense some of the OOC teams you've played run. I would guess Cal is still pro-style, correct? Just wondering.
Florida/Georgia and Oklahoma/Notre Dame probably earn it over this game.
I'm pretty sure they are headed to Norman.
FIFY. MSU's offense sucks. They were #80 in total offense and #102 in scoring offense going into today's game. They didn't even equal their season averages today and will probably drop in both categories. Everyone has stopped their "pro-style offense".
Good thing we spread it out.
