Requiring me to have ESPN Insiders saved me the agony of going ape [Mark May] on that article.
I know exactly what you are saying. The same thoughts have been rumbling around in my head.
But being a bald old guy, I'm remembering that virtually every time Ohio State has played UW in the past 30 years, they have had better players and the better team, and even the better coaches - and yet, somehow, those guys have been able to inflict some losses on the Buckeyes that really hurt. It's like they are able to be more than the sum of their parts.
The Bucks would really help my cardiac health if they would just come out, smack them in the mouth and get up 3 scores early. I'm not asking for much.
If Wisky is beating us up, I suggest we go Robert Reynolds on them.
The most comparable rushing offense Wisconsin has faced this season would be Nebraska
Taylor Martinez- Passing : 17/29 181 2 TD/0 INT Rushing: 13/107 1 TD (8.2 AVG)
Nebraska racked up 259 yards total on the ground
I expect a big game from Braxton.....
Inside of 24 hours that stands between us, certain victory and the greatest week of the year. Damnit, does it feel good to be a Buckeye!!
Not cool. Show some class.
Watching our players go into full party mode heading into the fourth quarter of a tie game did not sit well then - and still doesn't.
I had no problem with it.
I've got a hunch that Urban has given his players some pretty strict instructions. No spitting or ejaculation of other bodily fluids on the Wisconsin emblem, no taunting (except in the piles of bodies) that can be picked up on cameras. Make a touchdown, just give to the ref (act like you've done this before), and simply act professionally.
If the team does that, and Wiscy players act outrageously, OSU might finally get the national respect that they so rightfully deserve by the great unwashed that are watching. Just my thoughts on a Friday.
Just beat them solidly. Take their best shot and then grind them down.
What was more frustrating was that the first time (08) it happened spontaneously, in a tense ball game.
In the second, it appeared that the Buckeyes were waiting for it to happen so they could join in... while getting their asses handed to them on the field.
Just a hunch, but I think the Bucks are going to exploit the short and medium middle of the field in the passing game quite a bit more than we've seen so far. Look for Corey Brown to have a big game with lots of YAC.
