    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    Chalk one up against the Huskies!

    As if any of us here were doubting the outcome anyway. Looks like Willingham has his QB for the season already.

    RS Freshman Jake Locker.

    What are the chances Tressel's boys are going to allow a freshman QB to win this game on national t.v.?

    I think none.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    RS Freshman = sophomore

    Locker is actually a sophomore. I think we'll win, but it could be close; since, the game is at Washington and we will be starting a "new" quarterback this year too.

    The "key to the game" (besides who scores the most points usually wins) could be which quarterback makes the fewest mistakes (turnovers, bad decisions, and not recognizing the blitz, etc.).

    :oh: :io:

    We have the D to handle this as long as we work hard and don't get overconfident.

    It has been proven time and again that a QB doesn't have to win a game for you, but manage it effectively. Tressel has done this succesfully with QB's as have other coaches. If Washington has a solid plan and they execute it who is at QB won't necessarily matter.

    I wouldn't underestimate the signifigance of playing a road game on the west coast with a first year starter at QB for us.

    -time change
    -hostile environment
    -new QB's first look at legit D1 talent that has bad intentions

    UW is young and appearently not that talented but I say forget who we are playing and look at the situation. We need to prepare like we're going to play USC.
  11. Ttown

    Ttown WTH is an Illini? Dead goose?

    I would think we prepare for every game like we were going to play tsun. There just isn't any other way to do it in my mind.

    I'm flying over for this game. Never been to Seattle and really looking forward to the three days I'll be there leading up to the game...I'll of course be wearing OSU garb the entire time.

    We should win by 10-17. Boeckman is a grey-shirt junior and has a few games of experience (albeit mop-up). Despite the loss of Ginn and Gonzo our WRs will be more than enough for UW to handle, and a healthy (and non-fumbling) Beanie will keep them honest. Our defense should be more than up to the task of holding a RS-frosh in check...if we could shut down Colt McCoy at Texas, we should be able to lock down Locker (pun intended).
  13. Flocka

    Flocka Where you going? NOWHERE!

    Congrats on getting to go to the game. Hopefully you will fare better than my last to visits to enemy territory.

    As far as Beanie goes. I feel pretty confident with both how he ended the season, and a full off-season to work on his problem, fumbling won't be an issue.

    Game will be played at least in part, in the rain.
    Frickin' wonderful! (sarcasm) :roll2:

    Coach speak: The secondary, and more
    Posted by Bob Condotta at 10:28 PM
    Here's the rest of our conversation with UW defensive coordinator Kent Baer, where he discusses the secondary and the team's defensive philosophy:
    QUESTION: Talk a little bit about the secondary, the play there last season and who is coming back for this season.
    BAER: Losing those guys (Dashon Goldson, C.J. Wallace) who are going to play on Sundays is going to hurt, though when you really look at it, in a way we only lost one because Dashon wasn't really healthy all season. But when he was healthy, he was pretty good. The concern there is just our overall depth. We are bringing in four-five freshmen (in the fall) and two or three of them are going to have to play. I wish they were here for the spring because that would give us a jump there.

    (meaning, they are in deep shit in the secondary!)
