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

    Yertle Pounding out aggression, turns into obsession

    Don't you guys think good ole conservative Tressel will only play Beanie against the likes of Kent State if he's confident that it won't affect things for the rest of the season??? It seems to me that if Beanie is playing this weekend, we can be sure of one of two things:

    1. Beanie's ankle isn't as bad as we think.
    2. His ankle isn't going to heal with a week or two rest. It's going to take extended off-season.

    Either way, with the limited info we get on injuries now, how could we possibly second-guess Tressel with this one?

    Upsets get Ohio State's attention

    Staying focused is the key to not fumbling away games against opponents, Tressel says.

    COLUMBUS ? Sure, football coaches had been telling Brian Hartline's teams for years not to overlook the weaker opponents.
    "You don't always see it," said Hartline, an Ohio State sophomore receiver, "but in the past couple weeks we've definitely seen it."
    Every few weeks this college football season, another upset has occurred that seems to become one of the greatest in history. First, it was Appalachian State's victory against Michigan in the season opener. Next, it was 37-point underdog Syracuse knocking off Louisville. Then last Saturday, Stanford, nearly a six-touchdown underdog, beat USC by a point in Los Angeles.

    Ohio State trying not to overlook Kent
    Wednesday, October 10, 2007
    By Todd Porter

    COLUMBUS A week ago, Jim Tressel said his team had to take its biggest step toward improvement if Ohio State was to beat Purdue.

    The Buckeyes made that steep step. On Saturday, they have a little one.

    It?s the kind that?s easiest to trip over. Kent State (3-3) will try to be the first Ohio team to beat the Buckeyes since 1921.

    ?They?re supposed to be weaker than us, but if you think like that, you trip up,? receiver Brian Hartline said. ?It?s probably why Stanford beat USC. ... You can?t look at anyone like that anymore.?

    Kent State won't get second-class treatment from Buckeyes


    COLUMBUS - Consider that Ohio State is ranked No. 3 in the nation and Kent State has not received a single vote in the poll. Consider that the Buckeyes are the two-time defending champions of the Big Ten Conference and leading the league again, and Kent State likely has played its way out of contention in the Mid-American Conference title race by the first week of October. Consider that Ohio State has not lost to an opponent from within the state since a 7-6 loss to Oberlin in 1921, and that the last time the Golden Flashes came here, the Buckeyes handed them a sound 51-17 pounding in 2002.

    OSU's strategy: Avoid upset, wait for BCS rankings
    Jim Naveau |
    - 10.10.2007
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] COLUMBUS ? The first Bowl Championship Series standings will be released Sunday, a date which has suddenly become more important for Ohio State after a string of upsets have helped the Buckeyes climb to No. 3 in The Associated Press poll and the USA Today coaches poll.
    Going into a non-league home game against Kent State (3-3) on Saturday, the Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) are in position to possibly take another run at the national championship game.
    Coach Jim Tressel said at his weekly news conference on Tuesday that he welcomed the poll, but didn?t pay a lot of attention to it at this point in the season.
    ?I think the time at which the BCS ratings come out is probably a good time for a first poll. It's probably better and it will be more accurate than the (preseason) poll that comes out in August. But we won?t get too involved with it because there?s nothing we can do other than progress and take care of our end of things,? he said.

    Pardon the interruption, Buckeyes prepare for Kent State
    JASON LLOYD, Morning Journal Writer

    COLUMBUS -- Ohio State's road back to the national title game takes a brief non-conference pit stop this week with Kent State.

    Now it's up to the Buckeyes to ensure that stop doesn't result in a blown engine.

    The Golden Flashes represent Ohio State's version of Appalachian State or Stanford. The Buckeyes are 30-point favorites, but they've witnessed plenty of history lessons this year about what happens when powerhouses take an opponent lightly.

    I think Julian has a point.

    Ames can be loud when the Cyclones are down 2 scores in the 4th quarter.

    Kentucky can be loud when the score is tied at half-time.

    Ohio Stadium will be pretty quiet most of the day on Saturday.

    Kent gave Kentucky a game for a half, I believe they went to the locker room tied 14-14.

    Nicely done...BTW BP does not have sufficient capability for me to properly rep you for the bet you proposed to HTM. Mrs Jax was quite pleased.
