    I know you weren't def. I just had gotten done with that thread, and needed to vent. Sutton is a stud, and I'm extremely happy for the kid.

    Cowan, I blame JT for the playcalling. The problem is that I was bickering with our local troll, tibor. His posts are no longer on BP, so that context is impossible to decipher.

    Strohs, he would do a lot better. However, as much as I don't like Brady Quinn, there is a big difference at QB. However, I think Weis would use one of our QBs and utilize his strengths.

    " In a trend that’s becoming all too familiar for Ohio State fans—and even Jim Tressel supporters have to look in the mirror on this one—the Buckeyes have once again lost an early-October road night game in conference play, one that came after a bye week. After “Madison ‘03” and “Evanston ’04,” the Bucks—particularly their offense, came up with another annual display of impotence called “State College ’05.”
    that says it all.

    I'd definitely say we were having a hard time "Getting it up"...up the field that is
  4. This right here was a major difference maker. Along with thh fact that the PSU defense MADE THINGS HAPPEN WHEN THEY HAD TO! That HUGE INT in the first half, and that HUGE forced fumble by Tamba Hali with under 2 min. left that was recovered bythe Nittany Lions says it all.

    PSU is just a better TEAM this year.

    Hats off to Joe Pa, for still having the masterfull skill for building a great Football Team.

    and hats off to you, cheese sandwich, for being a psu fan.

    FWIW, Dr. John Woods (IIRC) was on NBC4 this morning saying that the band may not return to Happy Valley. They were barred from marching on the field. The reason given was to protect the new turf, but Dr. Woods wasn't buying that reason/excuse. He also said that the band was pelted with bottles and harrassed. He had several people removed by the police, and he was NOT happy. He believes the fans were the reason TBDBITL was not allowed to perform. The PSU band has already offered up their apologies, but nothing so far from the school. I have never heard of such a reaction from the band. They never complain. I'm stunned. Must have been quite an "atmosphere" in Happy Valley. Seems to back up a lot of the other stories we've heard from OSU fans.

    Any band members care to fill in the details?

    I am a PSU fan! For sure! All my life.

    However I have alot of respect for Ohio State Football and its tradition , as well as the Big 10 , which is undoubtedly the premier division in Div-1A College Football.

    I didnt know if we were aloud to talk about this. I'm not in the band but I spoke with several people that were at the game and they said it was out of control. Tailgater takes drum sticks and hits band member in head. This is from a older woman who is not dramatic that told me some of these stories. No police controll, bottles being thrown, no one moving to let Ohio State fans to their seats pleanty O violent threats, urin bottles ect...
  9. Respect from a Penn State Fan.

    Win or lose, Saturdays game was a classic. Real football played in the trenches, and controled by two good teams alot like 2 great chess players in a match for it all. You can't take away the effort of either team.

    I don't think there was a team in the country that would have wanted to play against either defense on that day.

    QB Troy Smith played his heart out, and is a hell of a runner. I would have thought they would have let him carry the ball a bit more then they did.

    We'll be able to tell folks a few years from now when you're watching a big NFL game that we all saw A.J. Hawk and Paul Posluszny in the same game.

    Thanks, Cheese...

    I have been a big PSU naysayer over the last few years. PSU was ready to go, and you fans had the right attitude about building a good atmosphere for your team. PSU proved better on Saturday than I was willing to give them credit for. While I'm still reluctant to say "they're back," PSU is closer to being back than I was willing to believe, that's for sure.

    Take back the pick and 1st and G on the 1, and it's a dead heat. (that's not to say it shouldn't count, just that that was a (the?) difference maker)

    It kills me how people are bringing up Zwicks stats. He has played mop up duty since the texas game and he look amazing in that game. Just as we assume that everybody else improved from last year, we need to assume that zwick has as well.

    as for the team... the offense needs a major overhaul. pittman is a stud who would be a 1000 yard rushed on another team. ginn is going through a sophmore struggle and holmes is a little dinged. still...we have one of, if not they best, wr trio or quad (if you include hall) in college football, yet we can't run routes to get open or get them ball when they are.

    we need to re-evaluate our talent, and determine how to best use it, because right now, we are not.

    Wow. That's unbelievable Brass. I can understand people getting stupid in isolated areas ... but towards our band ... in the stadium? Ridiculous. I'm now officially pissed. I'm hoping that the university bars the PSU band and non-football personel from Ohio Stadium in the future. I know that's not an adult reaction but I'm F'in angry.

    Well it's understandable. I am a musician and there is no reason to bring the band into it. That is so low I don't even know where to begin. The music is entertainment for all, not a competition. Absolutely pathetic

    My observations?.....

    JT has fallen behind the curve w/ his play caliing. He has become a reactive coach instead of a proactive coach. I saw nothing in that game that any team wouldn't have seen for the last 4 weeks by watching film of us. Makes it pretty easy to prepare for us....

    Am I the only one who's noticed in the "big games" (save for Michigan) JT buttons up the Offense to something approaching basic?

    I don't think that's "falling behind the curve" it's game day strategy. Maybe you don't like it, but lets call it what it is, and not make grand conclusions about Tress losing a step.
