    I'm sure cinci remembers the Oklahoma Sooners Wishbone attack in the 70s and 80s under Barry Switzer. They routinely ran for 300+ yards per game and also averaged multiple turnovers. Bottom line: High Risk = High Reward = sometimes bad things happen.

    2 facts:
    1. the Buckeyes are undefeated. Is Alabama? Notre Dame? Wisconsin? scUM?
    2. Plenty of games left to leave a legacy.

    What high risk offense are we running?

    High heart attack risk? High 'I'm going to cuss at my TV and throw things while watching this' risk?

    Relax. Seriously.

    Let it go people. It's over. They won. Indiana was a bear trap last year too that they survived. Win and advance.

    Seriously. I'm sure Ole Miss, Georgia, Notre Dame, and UCLA would have loved to play as shitty as tOSU on Saturday. Give Indiana credit for almost having our number 3 years in a row, but luckily this isn't horseshoes, hand grenades, or atom bombs.

    BUCKDUBBS007 TSUN GIVE A DAMN METER: 0% Torrents

    Indiana does this to us every year (at least since Kevin Wilson has been their coach... he really gets them up for this game), I am confused why people are so surprised, especially since Indiana came into this game looking better than they have the previous few. We beat a very good team on Saturday.

    So far we've had Hawaii, NIU, Western fucking Michigan, and now Indiana as trap games. Next up is shitty Maryland, so that'll be another trap. After that is trap Penn State....and if we lose to those fuckers you won't have to worry about my posts on here any more bc I'll have shot myself.

    Dang.

    But yes, I generally agree.

    I think we could cut down on the turn overs by running a bit more. Use Zeke more and Samuel.

    I remember last year at The Game, a guy 3-4 rows behind me yelling "nice play Herman!" and expressing his desire to see Herman fired every time a play basically didn't go for a TD

    Probably the statement I've agreed the most with since being a member of this board (2004).

    If the receivers or CJ aren't going to hang onto the ball then take the ball out of their hands with more hand offs. We have just as deep of a running back stable as we do WR.

    I agree

    the thing that scares me though.. where is the line drawn between building toughness and just scraping by with luck and better athletes (Florida St last year)

    These games could be good if it's forging a strong team that kicks ass at the end of the year. Or it could be warning signs that we don't have "it" and eventually get exposed.

    I am hoping we are still getting all the units rolling and start decimating opponents soon enough. Most important thing is to keep on winning and don't panick into making any bad decisions. I trust in Urban!

    The point is they haven't lost, its just that they aren't utterly destroying people as much as everyone else thought they should.

    Survive and advance. It's not a beauty pageant anymore. Win the B1G with 1 or fewer losees and get into the playoffs.

    buckeyesin07 Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    Substitute "Cardale" for "Herman" in that sentence, and you pretty much have 80% of BP, circa fall 2015.
     
  15. While the beauty pageant angle has diminished with the playoff, it's not totally gone. For example, if they dominate everyone and lose a tough one vs msu and are 11-1, there could have been an argument for getting in over a 11-1 tcu or Baylor or Oklahoma. Now there isn't. Also, if they lose a game but still go to the B1G championship game and go 12-1, they have less of an argument against a 12-1 sec or pac 12 team.

    In summary, go undefeated and there is no need to worry (although that was the case in the bcs too if your name isn't Auburn). But if you lose a game, style points do matter.
