Game Thread Texas Game Score Predictions

Discussion in '2005 Football Season Capsule' started by MililaniBuckeye, Jul 24, 2005.

  1. BuckeyeTrail

    BuckeyeTrail Michael Jenkins...does it again!!!

    42-6 bucks.

    too much thunder and lightning. big plays on both sides of the ball. vince young will be going home in a body bag. ginn, holmes, and troy will dominate. the 'shoe will become its own life force and swallow the longhorns whole.

    i should feel bad writing this, as it is similar to what idiot orlando sentinel writer mike bianchi wrote before the fiesta, but whatever. texas will probably finish the regular season with just 1 loss, but i just really, REALLY, like the way we match up with them. just like derrick brooks and tampa can always beat vick, our LBs will devour vince and his TEs. their linemen, the supposed strength of their team, did not impress me against michigan, i think it's all hype brought upon by them playing in the big xii. they have nobody to cover our receivers and troy will play like a man possessed.

    i aplogize to texas fans....i think people that chest-thump and act like they're better than everyone else, just because their team is good, are pathetic. so i apologize for coming across like a jackass...but whatever. i believe in being honest, and not sugar-coating anything, and my opinion is that it will be 42-6.

    You've got to love that prediction from a true believer.

    I'll drink to that score as the outcome any day ..

  3. scarletngrey11

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    this is how i see it
    vince young- heisman hopefull who threw 12 TDs to 11 INTs, i know he can run and i respect that but those are not heisman passing numbers and last i checked he plays quarterback not running back, and you need to do more than run, i know he has potental to be a great quarterback but if he doesnt throw well than he has no chance.

    young is a threat but hes not what everyone makes him out to be, ive seen him play so im not unimformed im more into football than any1 i know, hes not a proven passer and thats what he needs to do to be successfull against our defense

    honestly im more concerned about our line play, texas has a great o-line and d-line and if you can control the trenches than you control the game, if our lines can hold up then we will have no problem winning this game.

    think about it, running back-unproven, wide recievers-unproven, passing attack-unproven, cedric benson was their offense

    Texas 17

    p.s. i know what im talking about young is a great RUNNING quarterback but his passing numbers are lacking, there is alot of potental but that wont get it done september 10 at the shoe!

    If we beat Texas by that score or any score with a margin of 36+ points, I'll make 100 copies of the game, free, for BP members.

    BuckeyeTrail Michael Jenkins...does it again!!!

    man....i love your outrageous promises... i was watching "king of queens" the other day, and they were doing a flashback to the wedding day. arthur (frank costanza/jerry stiller) asks doug's parents to pay for the wedding, and when they agree, he proclaims "I will pay you back with interest! ... actually, interest seems a little steep."

    I'm serious as cancer. If we beat Texas by 36 points, it will be well worth the time, effort, and money to do what I said.

    I don't think we need to win the battle in the trenches...just neutralize it and make it even. If we can at least do that, everything else should take care of itself.
  9. scarletngrey11

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    thats exactly what im saying, our d-line just needs to keep the o-line off of our linebackers and if they do that then we should be in a great position to win that game

    The thing that gets me is that Michigan shut down Cedric Benson and their passing game, but just forgot bout their star player (Vince Young). While theres no doubt Texas has a good O-line they are not dominant. Dominant would be the Miami O-line that we faced in the Fiesta Bowl right? Looked what happened there? Our D-line came in very under rated much like this game and look what the results were? I think personally that Texas' O-line will be very very very shocked at how well our D-line plays. When you have Defensive Ends as big as Defensive Tackles and still run 4.7's and below (with Kudla/Richardson) thats just not right. IMO we won't only nuetralize Texas' Oline but we'll win the battle by keeping them off linebackers and stopping their running game.

    Thats going to be my surprise of the game.

    As for our O-line against their D-line man I dunno bout that one. Should be a great matchup to watch though.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    in my mind our line can dominate their o line, but to be successful all we have to do is hold our own

    I rewatched the Okie St. game last night. In my opinion Okie St. and Texas are mirror images of each other on offense. TheY can run the option, don't throw much, and rely on the running game. Look at what we did to Okie ST. I know Texas has more talent on defense but Young is the only offensive player for Texas that is considerably than his counterpart on Okie State squad.

    We had a second string QB in the game with a pulled Hammy and was up 33-0 half way through the 3rd quarter. If Troy Smith would have been playing we would have scored 40+. Okie St. couldn't do anything against the Buckeyes...nada.

    Okie St. scored 35 points against both Texas and Okie. The should have been shut out but Tressel cleared the benches.

    Vernand Morency rushed for 1452 yards during the regular season and we shut him down., Dujuan Woods and Prentiss Hill both very good WR in the B12 were shut down. Donovan Woods made noise as a Freshmen last year and was shut down.

    After watching the Alamo Bowl again I feel confident we are going to win by a large margin. I'm going to change my prediciton to 42-21.
  13. Wingate1217

    Wingate1217 Bring on the next opponent!!

    OSU 21

    Texas 17

    Texas scores on an opening field goal, and on a 67 yard screen pass and go into the half leading 10-7.
    We score on a defensive turnover and Texas attempts to keep the ball from Teddy by punting out of bounds. They end up shanking one giving us a short field in which we take advantage. Texas takes a couple of defensive time outs in order to try to stem the tide. This will become important later in the game as they need to stop the clock but cannot. Texas scores on a long drive in the 4th but with about 6 1/2 minutes left and then kicks off to the Bucks. We try to run the ball (and take time off the clock) but the Texas D-Line is playing inspired. OSU converts two 3rd and longs to run the clock down to about a 2 minutes left. With the ball near mid-field Tressel crosses them up and hits the TE for a 17 yard gain. Two running plays and and the final Texas time out and Bucks face a 3rd and 6 on the Texas 29 with 47 seconds left. OSU runs a QB sweep and fails to convert and watches the clock run down below 10 seconds. We take a delay of game penalty and run another sweep and Texas takes over with a couple of seconds left in the game. Vince Young's Hail Mary pass is incomplete and OSU wins a close one.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    i agree with you ok st. is very similar to texas. i am not worried about losing this game at all, i dont think this game is even gonna be close honestly, im not being cocky its jus there are so many things going osu's way that.

    I'd be careful about the OkieSTate and Texas comparisons.......we're facing a VERY talented Texas team on 9/10....much, MUCH more talented on defense than OkSU was.

    That being said, I agree that it will be a more easily won game than expected due to the fact that even if UT focuses its blocking on Hawk/Carpenter, the other 2 will be left to roam and wreak havoc. I can see Heacock making Texas pay for that with some blitzes by D'Andrea.......eventually UT will have to keep their RB and possibly even their TE in for blocking....

    Young isn't accurate enough to thread the needle at his only 2 or 3 receiver targets who are covered with 2 deep zone....interceptions will turn this game from a squeaker into a 10 to 14 point runaway.

    Offensively? Everyone would be fibbing if they said they could predict how the offense will look. You just can't predict it at this point because Texas has some spectacular talent on defense that is capable of putting it together for one game and playing like a sound unit. I doubt that happens. Ohio State will take advantage of its dangerous special teams to play a short field all night vs. the Horns. If we can average 3 pts per possession in the first half, it's all over.......the Horns will eventually try to make something happen and that will lead to big mistakes.
