    see rule #10 of the usable past, this should clear up any doubt that you have about this being a legit point. :wink:

    AVG starting point for a mich scorring drive M48
    AvG starting point for a mich punt M29.6

    While we will never know for sure if those extra yards would have prevented them from scorring it sure couldn't have hurt.

    Wow, this thread has jumped the tracks, run into a building, rolled down a hill and is now on fire while hanging on the edge of a cliff.

    Here's my Texas game score prediction (sorry, no stats or scUM vs. North Iowa State Technical College vs. University of Jamaica correlations have been used in making this prediction):
    OSU 44- Texas 17
    Texas will score first, then force a punt on tOSU's first possession. Hawk intercepts a hurried VY throw and returns it for a TD. Texas fumbles the kickoff, Haw runs one in from 15. Texas goes 3 and out. Ginn returns the punt for 6, etc. etc.
    tOSU is up 38-10 at half, plays conservative offense in the second half and lights out D. Texas scores a scrub TD after Huston's 2 second half field goals.

    VY gets knocked out in the 3rd quarter, xrayrandy comes up with a statistical explanation of why Texas would have come back if Vince didn't get hurt.

    I'm not smoking crack or anything else that makes me think we'll put up 40+. What does make me think that, you ask? Texas is soft.

    thats not entirely true. the fact is we have no idea what the outcome might have been. you say scum having to move those extra yards wouldn't have hurt. are you sure? lets say scum starts every possetion on their own 20. this changes scum's game plan both offensively and defensively. scum plays more aggressive than they would have because they are playing with crap starting field position. scum opens up the playbook more than they actually did in the game, get more big plays and end up winning the game.

    cause and effect *shrug*

    yeah I agree... Texas gave up 30+ points to Michigan??? theres no reason why we can't get 30-40. There only excuse when I say I can see a score of 35-10 or 35-17 is theres no way with all the talent they have on defense. OSU has not 1,2,3,but 4 LEGIT threats to take it to the house? Texas has what? ONE just ONE.... alot easier for OSU to put up the points than it would for Texas to...

    I forget what my score predition was but since some of these horn fans are starting to throw out crazy stuff to piss some of us off I'll stick with 35-13.

    ok martin, so you are telling me that it is just as easy to score from the 29 as it is the 48? Look i don't know if mich would have scored or not but you asked for a SHRED OF EVIDENCE and I provided it. That is all

    Nice prediction BukiPower

    I'm gonna go with 38-21. I think they will have 14 1st half points and the Buckeyes will make adjustments in the second half and shut them down. The game will be won by coaching, Home field, defense, and special teams. I think Michigan and Texas were about even at the end of last year. Obviously the Buckeyes were considerably better than Michigan at home. Thats why I'm going with roughly the same score as the Michigan game.

    The UT/scUM game was sloppy and high scoring... the tOSU/UT game might be sloppy (early in teh season, the kids on both teams will make so dumb mistakes that will be corrected as the season rolls on) but not high scoring...

    Both D's are stacked... Tressel is known for playing close to his vest, execute/don't make mistakes type of game... I also don't see a lot of trick plays, too early in the season to bust too many out (we'll save them for the scUM and bowl game... as UT will save them for the Okie and bowl game)...

    I think it will be a close game, I just don't see either team blowing out the other...

    Do not underestimate the magnitude and importance of this game...there is none more important this season. A win, especially a convincing win, puts us in the thick of the NC hunt...possibly in the top 3. If JT has any tricks in the bag, he'll pull one or two out for this game.

    I only wish we would use a trick or two agains the land theives, we tend to wait until the game after...

    It's early in the season... the losing team could win the rest of their games and still have a shot at the NC game.

    Losing to Iowa, PSU, or scUM would hurt us in the Big Ten and in the polls since it is closer to the end of the season (well, Iowa isn't... but you get the idea).

    We will play to win, however I doubt we will use special plays only designed for that particular game (unlike plays we would call against scUM)...

    Too early in the season to show all your cards... the O might be opened up if we are down, but I doubt a whole lot of trickery will occur (then again how often do we run those types of plays... once in a blue moon)...

    I don't see a lot of scoring... two very good D's, with big game importance (don't take risks... don't make mistakes... play field position until you can strike for a score)...

    It's still too early for me to make any guesses.......I'll probably make a lame attempt in the preview of the game. :biggrin:

    An early prediction from Fiu at

    Saturday, September 10th - Texas at Ohio State
    This is the really, really big game of the first part of the 2005 season with more preseason hype than there has been for a non-conference, non-bowl game in several years. The Texas lines will win the battles in the trenches, but the lightning fast Buckeye linebackers will keep Vince Young in check. Everyone will focus on Ted Ginn Jr. and his return abilities after the way Michigan's Steve Breaston ripped through the Longhorns in the Rose Bowl, but don't overlook the Texas returners. Ohio State is 13-0 against teams currently in the Big XII since a 1977 loss to Oklahoma. The streak will continue.
    Predicted score in late July: Ohio State 17 ... Texas 14
