Game Thread Game Seven: Ohio State 48, Kent State 3 (final)

Discussion in '2007 Football Season Capsule' started by BB73, Apr 6, 2007.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    I thought I saw somewhere it was 6 for 18 yards. I don't remember where I saw that.

    And I agree about Beanie. Flat-out sitting him might not be the best plan. Get him some reps, but don't over-do it. Start with 10-15 carries, and see how he is. Maybe 5-10 in the second half, depending on how the game is going.

    Yeah Zurp... I agree maybe you can't rest beanie straight up cuz he's in groove with things too well right now. I'd give him 10 carries like you said in the first half and if we're up good at the end of one half then let MoW/Saine take over the shower. After all both those two need more reps to A) give beanie a blow and B)Both need to get more in sync with the offensive game plan.

    I knew we couldn't keep Rolle on the bench long. This kid just jumps off the screen at you even surrounded by the rest of OSU's talent.

    He still would be 3rd if Homan was healthy. What does that tell you about our depth at LB?

    Anyway, for those talking about Beanie. I say leave him out the entire game. I think we are talented enough to beat Michigan State even with Beanie "getting back in the groove." Hell, I dont know if I'd leave Beanie in against MSU longer than a few series if we get the game in hand to rest him up for the PSU game.

    That's me though and I'm not a coach.....

    I'd sit Beanie. It's not about a "groove" thing or "depriving" him of carries, but rather making sure our clear-cut #1 running back is healthy for the home stretch.

    Buckeyes get ready for 3rd intrastate opponent this season

    10/8/2007, 6:02 p.m. EDT The Associated Press

    MARTIN SPEAKS:@ Kent State coach Doug Martin on the state of Kent State's team: "I think we're a more talented team than what we've been. Our kids are excited about what they're doing. We're ranked near the top in just about every offensive and defensive category in the MAC. We're making progress, but it's just a matter of getting over the hump to win close games. We've lost two close games in the conference, that both came down to the last play of the game where we're actually throwing the ball in the end zone in both of those games to tie the score or win it. But we didn't make the plays. That's what good teams do ? win those close games. We're not there yet."

    Kent State report
    Flashes realistic about OSU game Backups to play more; regulars to rest for MAC
    By Stephanie Storm Beacon Journal sportswriter
    Published on Tuesday, Oct 09, 2007
    KENT: The Ohio State University.
    Ranked No. 3 nationally, Ohio State University.
    The highest ranked opponent Kent State has ever faced, Ohio State University.
    The reality that smacked struggling Kent State in the face is after a disappointing Mid-American Conference loss a 20-13 loss Saturday to Miami awaits undefeated Buckeyes at noon Saturday.
    And the game will be played at the 102,329-seat Horseshoe in Columbus.
    ''You get exposed in every game,'' Kent State coach Doug Martin said at his weekly news conference Monday. ''But especially when you play the No. 3 team in the country. This game here, you're going to have to play your heart out just to keep this thing close.''

    Flashes coach building program

    They don't rebuild at Kent State. They don't reload, either. "There's no tradition at Kent State," said Doug Martin, the school's 10th football coach since Don James led the Golden Flashes to their last bowl game in 1972. Martin is the second coach in that span to last more than three years, and the fourth to win as many as six games in a season.
    "Ohio State, there's tradition," Martin said. "They know how to win. You come in and you're taught how to win by the guys that are already there.

    ... coming off @Purdue and with Michigan State looming, is this the classic sandwich/hangover game? Certainly not predicting Kent St to win, but we've seen these bizarre games before coming off a big game, such as with San Diego St in previous years.

    I dunno, I just have that feeling that this is one of those mail-it-in/sleepwalk games with a noon kick that takes OSU about 20 minutes to wake up and get pissed ...
