Game Thread Ohio State 23, Purdue 7 (final)

    I like the comparison to the '06 Iowa game JaxBuck made. Look for a lot of people to start picking Purdue in an upset(Mandel will probably be one of them) as the week goes along. Come gametime, it'll be all Buckeyes.

    I'm not uneasy about this game. The Buckeyes have the talent and coaching to roll over anybody on their schedule this year - including the games in West Lafayette, Happy Valley and Ann Arbor. If the Buckeyes are motivated and are crisp in their execution, they win this one in a walk.

    This is just an idle thought I had about this year. But what if JT is using this year as practice for next year and USC. I mean if he could somehow pursuade all the underclassmen to stay one more year what kind of a team could we have next year?
    I think I would get a warm and fuzzy glow and have a smile like a pig in shit for a long time

    JT doesn't use one year to prepare for another.
    He does "prepare" for The Game. :biggrin:
    Can you picture an offense of Beanie, InSaine, Small, Robo and Hartline on the field at one time against that scUM defense? :biggrin:

    Yeah but what if he did? I mean, this year was supposed to be a "rebuilding" or gain experience year so why not use it to get everyone game experience for next year when we could make a big push for the NC.
    I can Imagine it but why leave out Dane?

    Counts to 5 ...
    Don't we also need an offensive line and at least a QB under center?

    Nah , we will just run the shot GINN without a line or we can add, Washington, Dukes, Torrence and Torrence and Whaley.
    or maybe on play 1 we run Robo, Saine, Dane and Washington, then on the next play we run Hartline, Small, Torrence and Torrence, .

    We have quietly been running a fair amount of plays from shotgun, with empty sets or 1 back sets. Everyone in the world knows this is coming in The Game. Look for JT to gradually run it more and more.

    You don't have to have a pure running QB to run the spread.

    Yeah, but what if he didn't? What if rivers were made of chocolate milk and tree made of cinnamon sticks? :roll1:

    I imagine Charlie Weis would be a much happier man in such a world(and the rest of us would have a problem with drought and deforestation)

  15. Watching MNF, the ad for Saturday Night College Football featured this game. I'm hoping that means it will be on for a majority of the country.
