    I now appreciate Duke football fans over Duke basketball fans. Solid smack talk when your team has won one game in the past two seasons is priceless.

    did anyone else notice that we used a new formation against UW? it was an ace set with a TE, an H-back and the SE in a bunch formation at the end of the line, and a FL on the other side... we were running out of that formation a lot, but look to see some play-action from it this week...

    i'm not real sure, but i think that Robo was lining up as the FL and Hartline was lining up as the SE...
    i'll go back and look at it again if i remember...
    anyway, here's what the set looks like. i don't recall seeing us use this formation before:

    ........LT LG C RG RT TE....SE
    FL.............QB............HB

    ................TB

    IIRC that was what they were in when Robiski blew his down block and Beanie got stuffed on a 3rd and short but yes, I remember seeing it and noticing it being a different look.

    I also liked the misdirection/play action pass/handoff dealie deal that we saw for the first time last week.

    JT has always added wrinkles as the year progresses and has always formationed teams to death. Now he might run the same basic plays but he has always done it from multiple sets. His conservative label needs an * imo. Yeah he's conservative in a sense, but very aggressive in another sense.

    I still go back to Ubran Myer's take and how JT changes based on the size of the other guys checkers. Pretty much sums it up perfectly imo.

    kind of a twist on the Statue of Liberty, IMO... we've run that before.

    edit: i remember exactly what play you're talking about. we ran that same play for Beanie's TD.

    according to the weekly press luncheon, the set i was talking about is part of the "silver" personnel set, with two WRs, two TEs, and one back.

    Tressel not planning any cartwheel celebrations
    JASON LLOYD, Morning Journal Writer
    09/19/2007




    COLUMBUS -- Three days after Jim Tressel showed a little emotion on the sideline, he was still being asked about his reaction to the blocked field goal in the second half against Washington.


    The normally reserved Tressel jumped up and down on the sideline and pumped his fist after Larry Grant blocked the field goal attempt. Cameras hadn't caught Tressel so animated since the national championship game in 2002. He admitted yesterday he tries to make a point of staying cool on the sideline.

    Buckeyes not overlooking Wildcats

    COLUMBUS -- Dionte Johnson was an innocent bystander that night in 2004, when the world's rotation changed long enough for Northwestern to beat Ohio State in overtime.


    It was Northwestern's first victory over the Buckeyes in 33 years and stunned the Big Ten and the rest of the country, since Ohio State entered 3-0 and ranked seventh

    Buckeyes Not Taking Wildcats Lightly Despite Loss to Duke

    By John Porentas
    There is some excitement building about this Buckeye team, fueled largely by a 3-0 record and a 30-point second half against Washington last Saturday. An offense that some thought was hopeless has breathed new hope into the bandwagon jumpers who are now beginning to climb aboard and get excited. What may not be so exciting this weekend is the opposition.

    NORTHWESTERN | LB Kadela grew up near OSU, but his blood is anything but scarlet


    September 19, 2007
    BY JIM O'DONNELL jodonnell@suntimes.com

    Funny that a town named Dublin would be a spawning ground of football contrarians. But that's just the way it is in Dublin, Ohio -- a tony, emerald berg only 14 miles northwest of the Buckeye basilica of scrunch known as Ohio Stadium.
    Adam Kadela and his Northwestern teammates will buck-neigh at the hallowed scarlet-and-gray pavilion Saturday when the Wildcats (2-1) open their Big Ten season against unbeaten Ohio State (2:30 p.m., Ch. 7, 720-AM).

    Big Ten opener sole focus for Buckeyes


    September 19, 2007
    from wire reports

    Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel likes to think his Ohio State players live in a cocoon, only concentrating on their practices, their game, their immediate opponent.
    But they are well aware of what's going on around them.
    The No. 8-ranked Buckeyes play Northwestern in the Big Ten opener for both teams on Saturday. The Wildcats are coming off a humiliating 20-14 loss at home to Duke, snapping the nation's longest losing skid at 22 games.
    Asked if his players knew of Northwestern's embarrassing defeat, Tressel implied that he doubted if they did.

    Bucks want to avoid history

    OSU would like to dodge repeating 2004 upset loss
    to Northwestern


    COLUMBUS - Dionte Johnson was an innocent bystander that night in 2004, when the world's rotation changed long enough for Northwestern to beat Ohio State in overtime.
    It was Northwestern's first victory over the Buckeyes in 33 years and stunned the Big Ten and the rest of the country, since Ohio State entered 3-0 and ranked seventh in the country, fresh off an impressive nonconference win at North Carolina State.
    Now the Buckeyes are again 3-0, ranked eighth in the country and coming off an impressive nonconference win at Washington. Johnson, now the starting fullback, wouldn't mind if the comparisons between the two seasons ended right there.
    "We were 3-0 and thought we had just gotten over that hump in being the next great team," Johnson said. "It was a very disappointing loss. We don't want to go through that again."

    On paper, there are obvious similarities between the 2004 Ohio State football team that lost to Northwestern and the team set to face the Wildcats on Saturday.

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH




    Northwestern was playing on one leg when it suffered an embarrassing loss to Duke on Saturday. Coach Pat Fitzgerald expects the Wildcats to have the other when they open their Big Ten schedule Saturday at Ohio State.
