Game Thread Cal Bears at tOSU - Sat, Sep 15, Noon ABC

    There's a thread on Shaggy complaining that the game day atmosphere at their stadium is lame and quiet here. OSU gets more than a handful of compliments on being the loudest stadium they have ever experienced (the 2005 Vince Young game). This "problem" is overblown because no one, except LSU fans (from what I hear), screams and cheers for the entire game. We get very loud when we need to.

    LSU not only fields a lame atmosphere for daytime games but as of 2010, they had a losing record at home. I think it may be just above .500 now.

    Playing a ton of night games distorts that advantage a bit. The shoe is always rocking for night games, even against Marshall.

    I think everyone has touched on all the things I saw so I won't go into great detail. The offense either makes it look easy or fucking impossible. The defense, well it's time to start asking some hard questions there....all the way down from the DC to the 22nd guy on the depth chart. When effort and mental errors are the top deficiencies no one should be above reproach.

    My overall take away is to remember it is always relative. There isn't a single team in the B1G I would switch problems with right now. As bad as this OSU team looks compared to recent vintage, it is still as good or better than anyone else in what is obviously a Big East/ACC level bad B1G this year.

    Continue to improve, continue to recruit, win 5-6 B1G games, beat the hell out of tsun and lets move on.

    Nice story in the San Francisco Chronicle about Cal fans and their game-day experience. One guy said our stadium was the loudest he'd been in, though Rocky Top "came close."

    Buckeye football the only game in town

    Fun game to be at. Especially in the fourth quarter! Hopefully there are many more like that this year!

    Play of the game

    Play of the game?

    Not what the Buckeyes did.

    Also not what the Cal Bears did...it's what they didn't do.

    4th and 1 with around 4:00 minutes to go...and although they've been moving the ball on us all day....they bring out their crappy FG kicker to try a 40+ yarder...missed of course.

    As the underdog and visiting team...they don't go for it?!?!

    Don't get me wrong, I was happy they didn't, but if they go for it, and get a 1st down..they can run the clock way down before attempting a much shorter FG.....and we are basically cooked.

    The football Gods were smiling on the Buckeyes at the end of the 4th quarter on Saturday.

    Some of those bad throws come when they have this righty QB rolling to his left...and the accuracy really suffers. When he rolls to his right, the accuracy is much better.

    It may be because I'm old..but our games were more enjoyable to watch when I knew absolutely nothing about in coming freshman..all the facts and evidence about freshman makes me want them to be more productive but in reality they are just freshman and the same goes for back ups they are back ups for a reason so expecting them to play like starters is like fools golds.

    There are currently 3 undefeated teams in the conference. The Bucks, Minny and NW.

    If nothing else I take solace in the fact that this Cal team is at worst at least as talented as last year's Miami team that Ohio State fell to pieces against.

    I was so shocked they didn't go for it, I realized the play only as the field goal attempt was in the air! I assumed the time-out was used to get the play and personnel lined up to go for the first-down.
