Game Thread (2004) Game Two: Marshall - 9/11/04 (W, 2-0)

    I truly believe we are seeing a different OSU team than we have seen in the last three years. The days of week in and week out nail biters are over. These are tressels players and he will game plan accordingly. The offense will improve dramatically this week. The offensive line will gel and the QB's will feel more confortable.

    I would be surprised if Marshall put more than 10 points on us. The only way that will happen is if we turn the ball over. IMO Cincy is as good if not better than Marshall.

    My prediction is OSU 45- Marshall 10

    Pruett seems to have lost confidence in his O-line. If he doesn't like them then a few 'bell ringers" from Fraser and company will demoralize these guys in a hurry. I look for OSU to play three and four deep early.
    OSU 42

    After "the incident" of a few weeks back, I think Tressel and Snyder want to pitch a shutout.

    Has any player or coach on tOSU's side made a comment on increased motivation based on the Arden situation? Usually Tress tries to keep that stuff close to the sweater vest, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

    After sending Arden out for the coin toss and getting a three TD lead, I think OSU should drive to the one yard line, take knee, and let the D score a safety. Repeat until the score is 35 - 0.

    Heard asnippet on the radio that paraphrsed Tressel as having said that the incident will have no impact on the game... but what else is he going to say? That we're a bunch of classless assholes and we're going to physically beat them and then embarrass them on the scoreboard...

    Also...

    How do you get half a Safety?

    No half safety involved. 3TD lead (21-0) + 7 safeties (14 points) = 35-0.

    Obviously this is an exaggeration but I certainly would like to see Marshall get embarrassed. This is one game where in addition to wanting the Bucks to be successful, I want the other team to be made to look bad.

    Oops.. missed the 3 TD lead part... (Which is pretty bad sinsce I quoted that part)... I thought you jsut wanted 17 1/2 safeties... which isn't a bad idea.

    Was watching "wall to wall sports" sunday night and Conley was on it. They asked him id the Arden incident would be bulletin board material. He replied something like it wouldn't be bulletin board material, but guarented every player will know about it.

    I actually think the buckeyes should be careful here....Marshall is coming off a embarrasing loss at home and they have nothing to lose, the Bucks better prepare accordingly, I have a feeling this one will be close for at least the first half, much like the cincy game....

    OSU wears them down in the second have.....35-10........

    :scum4:

    I think Marshall's confidence is probably a little shaken at this point... I think its important to get right after them.. I can't imagine that Snyder won't blitz right out of the gate to keep their O-line off balance.

    I think thats a good point, how many sacks did they give up?? 8? Also, their quarterback had only around 150 yards threw the air and 40+ came on one throw I think
     
  14. AKAK

    They only had 177 total yards and 49 were on a desperation pass at the end. (I guess he might have thrown for 150, what with the sacks killing the total yards)

    By the way... anyone know if Josh Davis is going to play, I heard he was dinged.
