    I almost got JoePa'd in the first half. I almost always stay in the end zone for the viewing angle and safety. On one Playaction rollout, stave was coming right at me. Fortunately he dumped it off early so there wasn't a meeting at my kneecaps, but the monsters jogged right past me.

    Please explain to me why we are playing 15 yards off the WRs and still bailing on the snap of the ball? We are supposed to have better athletes than almost every other team in CFB but we play too timid. I completely understand the umbrella type zone late in the game when we are trying to force the other team to burn clock but if we have the horses to play big time press man defense.. how about we do it?

    Have we never heard of jambing a receiver off the line? Wisc had 1 WR worth a damn all night long and somehow we manage to lose him on a play that goes for 50+ yards? The goes far beyond a blown coverage, that is complete lack of awareness. I do agree that the LBs were not getting deep enough drops to help in the passing game but I hardly blame them for that. I don't care what the score is, the down and distance does not matter when you have the running game that Wisc does. They can break a 70 yarder at any point.

    Overall I am happy with the win and the defense. If they are not going to call the holding when it happens then it will be impossible to get the kind of pressure on the QB we would have wanted.

    I would really like to know what happened to the explosive offense in the 2nd half? If you want to go with the ball control type of offense to eat the clock, fine. Give the ball to the bull dozer we have in the back field (Hyde) and ride him out. If he gets tired due to lack of game time we supposedly have a loaded back field (Hall? Smith? Elliott?). Nope, instead we go to Braxton left, Braxton right, Braxton middle. This is a guy coming off a knee injury against one of the hardest hitting defenses we are going to play all year. While Braxton did improve as the game went on I thought it was pretty clear he was a step slow most of the night.

    I also thought that Wisc sold out in entire 2nd half to stop our read option running game. They filled the holes with LBs early and made the reads very tough on a QB that has already shown he is a little slow reading his keys to start. How did we not even try a pop pass to a TE behind where the LBs were clearing to fill holes? I know we have that play in the playbook, we ran it in the first drive against SDSU and Braxton his a very nice pass to the TE even with the safety getting there for the coverage.

    I did like the twin WR sets with the fake read option and quick pass. One thing I would like to see on this would be the WR understanding this is not a screen pass designed to go the distance. Catch the ball, read the block and get hards. Less dancing and please stop running into the back of the legs of your teammates that are blocking on the edge for you.

    Overall a good win. Good teaching points all around and as far as 7 point wins go, this was a pretty easy 7 point win. I don't know that Wisc ever really threatened OSU in this game. Yes they did have a lot of self inflicted wounds but show me a losing team that doesn't.

    Best wishes to CB for a quick recovery. Next man up!

    Roby did jam him a few times....still wasn't enough to shut down that passing option.

    Also remember, we did play an incredibly conservative offense. Did you not see us doing running plays on 3rd and long?

    Also our playcalling was not balanced and was more focused on rushing plays than passing plays.

    what is really sad is 7na is no longer the embarrassing choice of songs. It is bad enough to still be playing that song eight years later, but resurrecting kern Kraft? Pathetic.

    I was more disappointed with playing zombie nation. . Hate that song with a passion

    I found it funny one time they played seven nation army and the students were more intrested in getting the O h I O chant going.. So what did the guys playing the music do? Turn up the volume, smh

    Had a great time in the Shoe sat night. Loved how loud and energetic the place was. Skull Session was great - except it was 105 degrees in St. John's.

    Great game to watch against a very good opponent. I didn't think Stave could play that well if we shut down the running game - but he made good decisions (minus the pick to Roby) and threw the ball more accurately than I thought he could - of course some of his throws went to guys who didn't have a Buckeye within 10 yards of them. Abbredaris is one impressive dude. He abused Brad Roby. And the Badger defense is no pushover. Thank God they had some breakdowns in the secondary, especially that one at the end of the 1st half. That was huge.

    When the game went to 31-14 I thought we were in position to end up winning 52-21, but it seemed that the OSU offensive staff pulled back from the passing game at that point - which was largely how we had scored on them. It's interesting that someone as brilliant as Herman allows a little Bollman to get into his play-calling at times. I'm sure he did what Urban wanted him to do, but the result of running the clock and punting was that Wisconsin had the ball with 1:30 left and a chance to tie.

    Finally I ask this question: Do the CPD really help with traffic after a game? We sat without moving for 25 minutes west of the stadium on Lane Ave. Didn't get out of Cbus until 1:30 AM. The traffic situation is fubar after a game.
  8. Don't have any real analysis to give. I still have yet to watch the replay. But doggone, CJ Barnett can really bring the hits. Always love to see our safeties hit like that.

    Not sure where you parked, but we park on West Campus and were on 315 heading south by 12:30. And that's after not leaving the stadium until after Carmen Ohio.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Yeah - I was in Worthington by 12:45, and that's after leaving my seat in 12C after Carmen Ohio. It's also after the clogged foot traffic getting to the stairs in C deck, then just getting away from the stadium.
  12. on the bright side, pretty sure this Wisky team could truck over M*ichgan and win by at least two TDs.

    Maybe. I don't know if it's a great hypothetical matchup for Wisconsin.
