    They had 313 yards in the first half. Maybe Wisconsin didn't have the horses to keep rolling in the second half, but you have a first half like that against Alabama, and you're looking at an epic beatdown.

    Yes but the point he was making is that we didn't get gutted op the middle, it was edge plays that we couldn't contain. We weren't being out muscled, just scheme.

    Definitely out coached the first half of the game. But continued missed tackles also contributed to some of that yardage. Bottom line, Wisky is a really good team. They should have beaten TSUN and had a chance to beat us as well. But having two weeks to prepare also helped.

    Next week at PSU is also going to be a test for our D. I see it close in the first half but the good guys pull away in the 2nd half.

    It just wasn't the sweeps outside guys it was off tackle too... mainly because of missed tackles but there was success between the tackles.

    The replay is on ESPNU right now, and the INT that wasn't just happened. Has the B1G answered for this? The replay system is just broken. Several calls that are clear as day are being changed inexplicably.

    SKULL SESSION: J.T. BARRETT FINDS HIS GROOVE, URBAN MEYER DOESN'T DO HALFTIME SPEECHES, AND PENN STATE STORYLINES

    BUT COACH, I SAW IT IN A MOVIE? Every sports fan knows the genre where the beloved sports team, who had been winning recently, runs into a tough game. Late in the game, the coach of the beloved team rallies his team together and delivers a sermon that lights a fire in the souls of his men.
    .

    .
    From cleveland.com:

    "It's kind of silly when you say, how was the pregame speech, Coach? I don't know. They're certainly not listening for something ... Are they going to play harder because you said something? They play harder because of the training, power of the unit, and brotherhood of trust, in our opinion, the way we approach it. That's why they play so damn hard. I would be shocked if our players said anything other than that."

    [...]

    "I came in at halftime, and it's 16-6, I believe, and we're not playing well, and I look in the locker room and ready to kind of go after everybody, and I see Coach (Luke) Fickell has the -- you know, they use that projector, and they're going through making adjustments," Meyer said. "All the defense is sitting right in front of them. I go walk in on the offense and get ready to implode a little bit, and they're in there, Ed Warinner and everybody is working like pros, working on things.

    "The worst thing I could do is open my big mouth and get in the way of a bunch of people working their tails off and being professional, as they were."

    I was impressed with Wisconsin. Knew their D was special, but they used their bye to almost make that Horni QB look like Joe Montana for stretches. And their play calling was really good, keeping the Silver Bullets on their heels. But OSU adjusted and just showed a lot of grit in the 2nd half. I think this will be an important game in helping them define this season at the end.

    It's OK if Alabama and scUM are peaking right now. Hard to play at peak for a couple more months. I just want to see the Buckeyes peaking right around Nov 26.

    Pedster's don't seem to be nearly the team Wisconsin is. Have they gotten their o-line issues fixed yet?

    Was reading this article when I saw this comment at the end:
    Comparing our 58-0 blowout of Rutgers with Michigan's 78-0 blowout of them means little to nothing. We had a TD by our second- and third-stringers on offense called back near the end of the game due to a tick-tack holding penalty (would've made it 65-0), and it was quite obvious that Meyer had the offense do everything but kneel down in the fourth quarter. Basically a wash between the two games.

    Comparing our game against Wisconsin and Michigan's game with Wisconsin at face value would tend to imply Michigan is better, but look at stats and situations. While Michigan held Wisconsin to seven points and 159 yards of offense for the game, they weren't exactly an offensive juggernaut themselves, mustering 14 points and 349 yards on their home turf. Conversely, Ohio State faced Wisconsin at Camp Randall, at night, with Wisconsin coming off an extra week to prepare. And despite having problems stopping the Wisconsin offense between the 20s in the first half (and surrendering 16 points), they shut down the Badgers in the second half and held them to one scoring drive, while in turn scoring 17 points on three consecutive drives (and should've been 24 points on four drives, save the rain-induced IINT by JT). Ohio State scored more points on those three second-half drives--at Camp Randall--than Michigan could at home all game.

    Let the media continue to make surface-value comparisons...we all know what lay beneath.

    Well what lies beneath is probably a tough game against TTUN. The Game is still a long way off, but I hope we are playing a bit better around that time.

    I think the scariest thing about it is that for the first time in what feels like forever, they believe they will beat Ohio State. That can be a powerful thing in itself. They'll always get fired up for The Game, but this year they have bought into the idea of taking and running with it.

    I can tell you for a fact that I haven't felt the nervousness that I do right now leading up to the last game of the season in a long time, so if we're feeling it and talking about it, you know they are.

    That said, fuck scUM. They are going to get obliterated.

    Should be interesting to see how they handle their next game.
