    What do you think We'll try to do in this upcoming game!?

    Offense- I think we'll try and run the ball, and then use the play action pass... Also I wouldn't be surprised to see another special teams touchdown!

    Defense- I think its obvious that we need to stop the run, whether we can do that remains to be seen! I would love to think that we load the box and shut them down!

    Letz here it guys!

    GO BUCKS.

    Well, the weather's supposed to be surprisingly warm (~50 deg), but the field may be a bit wet, as we're supposed to get two days of rain/snow beforehand. I'd say there will be a premium on the ground game for BOTH teams. Whoever runs the ball, and prevents the opposition from doing the same, will win this sat.

    Don't turn the ball over, play opportunistic, wait for your opportunity and make the most of it. BOTH teams are mistake-prone, so I think fundamentals will be the telling difference.

    I'd love to see us picking on that cornerback that allowed TSUN to win in a matter of minutes.

    I would think we would stick with the following key elements of the Tressel gameplan:

    1. Take time off the clock in order to punt
    2. Make the game closer than it should be
    3. Frustrate all OSU fans and force them to turn the channel to watch the other game

    If we can run the ball, we should be alright.

    the weather according to a buckeye writer on Ozone is suppose to be around 40 with possible snow during the game. I'd like to think we can run the ball! but Lydel is back so god forbid if we go back to our old ways of running him up the middle....... But none the less I expect a very good game with alot of action on the ground! GO BUCKS

    I'm having a problem deciding whether inclement weather hurts or helps us. I'd like to think we can stick to just running the ball but realistically we're going to need some passes. I guess its best that Troy starts seeing as how his rockets aren't going to be slowed by wind and snow. Lets just hope the big guys come through for us--Hamby and Nicol (if he is healthy--not sure of his status).

    If Ross gets a single carry, I'm going to be pissed. The way he has a tendency to drop the ball or be stripped is only going to be more hazardous in a cold, snowy/wet environment.

    Definatly mili...... with it being very cold I just say let Joe, and Hall run the ball with Pittman as a switch up..... Also Nicol is most likly out for this Saturday's game as reported on Ozone.... I think we need to use Teddy in this one to keep them off Holmes.......


    OSU-24 ...... MSU-17

    Special Teams has been the ticket the last few weeks ....

    Let's hope they stay special.

    Right now I think we're most likely the best special teams team in the Nation. The numbers might point other wise, but We have Tedd Ginn, and Holmes on Kicks. Mo Hall with Kick returns (I'd like to see Ginn next to him). We have Nugent, and surprisingly our punting has been very solid as well. I'm very excited about our special teams. I don't think we should have a problem.

    Hayes is also MSU's best Tailback. He dosen't play TB any more, but he was their guy last season. I guess it's shit luck when your best TB is also you "best" DB. Edwards isn't the worst reciever in the world, but by god, I hope Fox - or youboty, underwood or anyone else with two hands and a heartbeat - would have picked off those lame duck passes Henne was throwing.
