Game Thread Game Ten: Ohio State 38, Wisconsin 17 (final)

    I would say it is indeed a cyclical type of thing in the sense you never hear about it when they have a bad season and lose 4-6 games. It happens a lot to the second echelon teams. So it seems they are perrenially tough but in realitivly short periods and "tough" could still very well mean a 3-4 loss season in which they would be complemented on their scrapiness or praised for one big upset.

    They have their "glory" in small doses but simply cannot maintain it. Even the "glory" for teams like that is a BTT and a BCS Bowl at the very most. Any BCS/Jan 1 Bowl is a good year for them. They have no reasonable shot at a NC, ever.

    We've played in 4 BCS games in 5 years with 2 being the NC game and are going into '07 feeling we have something to prove. Its all about perspective.

    Wisky just lost a starting defensive it it seems.

    Yeah, they started him as a QB, figured if we couldn't see his throat we couldn't choke him I guess, but after we rotated off the schedule for a couple of years they moved him to defense.

    Depends on what type of suspension it is. If it's a Joe Pa special, you're suspended until we can switch the story around (but you'll still have to help pick up rubbish at home games), if it's a Fulmer special, you're suspended, but if we can't find anyone better than you, you're back in, if it's a Lloyd Carr special, you're suspended while we can convince a couple of recruits that there's unlimited playing time at the TE spot at UM. Now, if Barry Alvarez was still your coach, you would get the dreaded "miss the first couple days of practice until this blows over" suspension. Unfortunately for Jamal, he's not getting the Spurrier suspension, where it's obvious that the school is messing up what football is trying to accomplish. My point is that we can expect to see Jamal in Columbus when it counts. Same with Butler from up north (sorry, different thread, same song and dance.)

    Well at least one Wisky player won't be making the trip to Columbus for the game.

    Good point. Wonder what will happen if you point that out to the ND fans.

    Posted in another thread, but belongs here too.

    As of the start of the conference season...

    • The Buckeyes current winning streaks in conference games is at 14.
    • The school record winning streak for conference games is 17, most recently equaled from 1974-76.
    • If the Buckeyes tie the record against Purdue on October 6th, they'll have to wait 2 weeks to break the record against Michigan State because of the mid-season OOC tilt with Kent State.
    • The conference record winning streak is held by John Cooper, who ensured that Michigan remained undefeated for 19 games from 1990-1992. So I guess it's actually Michigan's record.
    • Ohio State can tie the record against Penn State and set a new mark of 20 straight conference wins against Wisconsin a week later.
    • If the Badgers remain undefeated until that game, their current nation's longest winning streak (I-A (FBS)) will be snapped at 19 games, returning a favor from the 2003 season.
    • Either way, if the Badgers and Buckeyes are undefeated when they meet on November 3rd, someone's 19 game streak is going down.

    A great gesture for a player of historical importance.

    The Purdue game was the last battle of unbeatens in the Big 10 this year.
