    This program is manufacturing broadcasters at a pretty ridiculous clip. He’ll be among them.

    Future team captain.

    I had a 40, technically a 42, of Old English 800 malt liquor last weekend. My time was about an hour.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    By the time we were done legging I was too tired to really watch the game for line play. I saw that NPF was on the field to start but I also noticed Thayer back in the game at some point.

    Did anyone watch close enough to see how well he played? I’m going to try to rewatch again this afternoon, but curious what people thought.

    He got noticeably smoked on at least a few plays. I don’t think Munford plays last night if NPF played well.

    That was my fear.

    So, keep Thayer healthy... And get NPF coached up... and filled out.

    NPF had one great pancake block on a passing play when he pushed the DE outside and then about ten yards behind Fields drove him into the ground. It was beautiful. His best play of the night.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Yes, forcing NPF into starting duty. Praying that the boys are full strength for Wisky and State Penn... and beyond.

    Nick Petit-Frere ‘stepped up’ To Help Buckeyes Blow Out Northwestern


    t wasn’t the ideal way for a player to make his starting debut.

    Ohio State redshirt freshman Nick Petit-Frere was in limbo until just moments before the start of the game at Northwestern on Friday night.

    Both he and junior Thayer Munford took reps with the first team offensive line during pregame warmups, and even Petit-Frere wasn’t sure who was going to start.

    “Kind of like right before we were going to go kick off they were like, ‘you’re in, Nick,’ said Petit-Frere after the Buckeyes’ 52-3 win.

    The news wasn’t a total shock. Munford is the normal starter, and was listed as a game-time decision. The normal backup left tackle, Josh Alabi was out. That gave Petit-Frere basically a full week of practice to prepare.

    “I was with the ones most of the week,” he said. But it wasn’t totally clear where he would be lining up.

    “At the beginning of the week, I was playing right (tackle). And then they switched me over to left for a few plays and I was like, ‘hey, I kind of feel comfortable with this,'” he said.

    That comfort allowed the Buckeyes to leave starting right tackle Branden Bowen in the place he’d been playing all season. But it meant that a first-time starter would be watching Justin Fields’ blind side. Again, not ideal, but Petit-Frere held his own.

    “I thought Nick stepped up. Nick played well,” said OSU head coach Ryan Day. “We did a good job with him in there. That was his first real time where he had to start, and I thought that was good.”

    He got worked a little in that game; but that exposure is a good thing if he’s serious about improving.

    Night road game in this conference is a tough spot to abruptly get thrusted into action.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    Got to work on his kick and get himself in better position for the pass rush but his athletic ability should make that a quick adjustment.

    The fact that his first start was at LT instead of RT was really impressive to me. No game experience at LT as far as I know.
