    But, after this week, will they play down to the competition?
    I'm guessing they will. :(

    Based on your prognostications prior to the tilt in Seattle, I am taking this as a contrarian indicator. :biggrin:

    Northwestern under Randy Walker were scrapy teams that he was putting on the field every year. Coach Tressel had much respect for
    him as much as Coach walker for Tressel. Now its a different staff for the cats and they seem to struggle abit. I thought Coach Walker was one fo the best coaches in the BIG 10. Like JAXbuck said I think we have the better field of talented players. But at this point and juncture - ya just never know huh?

    Oh it's already there. This guy is solid gold when it comes to entertainment value, though:

    I'll agree that we are the antithesis to Northwestern, though. We, you know... win games.

    What IS frustrating is seeing Buckeye fans beating their chest on an NU forum after they lost to Duke. I guess I can't expect too much from the Scout/Rivals crowd...

    I never post on other sites but in Ecats case I am seriously considering being the biggest dickhead troll they have seen in a while.

    I know its very 1999 but we should do a BP take over of their pathetic little board just for the hell of it. OK, I'm embarrassed I even just typed it.....why not have a scarlet out then tear a rail down and bronze the fucker while were at it?

    Someone shoot me, I temporarily morphed into a PSU fan for about 30 seconds. I need a shower.

    I laugh every time I see these predictions on OSU boards. You'd think after 6 years of Tressel....people would learn.
     
  9. Bacher and Sutton last year gave our defense some fits considering the utter lack of talent surrounding them. It would be good this year to see how our defense has changed against Mr. Football Ohio and a fairly good QB. I guess maybe I've taken too many classes at the Jim Tressel School of Overappreciating Weak Opponents, but I think they may be the best QB and RB we've seen so far. Pure QB, at least. Jake Locker was the real deal.

    I expect to see everyone on the offense not named Christopher M. Wells to start off somewhat slow, but in all it will a truly dominating performace as Jim Tressel tries to avoid being embarrassed again.

    How are they going to beat us if we cheat, though?
     

  11. Pound us into submission with their MCAT scores?

    Based on my own experience, OSU's med school was harder to get into than Northwestern's. However, NU was 4X's more expensive...

    We shut out Minnesota 42-0 last year. However, Tressel ball did kind of take a hiatus in 2006.

    I'd disagree with the last one. Zwick looked shaky at times, and turned the ball over too often, but also looked very smooth at times early in '04. Overall pretty similar to Boeckman so far this year. Zwick threw for 213 yards with a td and 2 picks in his first start against Cincy, and for 324 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2 picks against Marshall in his second start (with a huge first-half in that game). Turnovers aside, those are good numbers for a wet-behind-the-ears quarterback. He had a rough outing against NC State, but that goes to arguably the biggest difference between the early '04 Buckeye offense and the early '07 offense: the O-line, particularly in pass protection. Against NC State (and in later games) the pass protection was very poor, something that Boeckman fortunately hasn't had to deal with yet. None of this is a criticism of Boeckman: he's done about as well as I expected thus far, but I think Zwick had a much more promising start to his career than some may remember, given the nosedive that followed.
