Well, here it is. It’s Michigan Week (or, for people like me, it’s Ohio State Week, aka The Apocalypse). And, since I’m here, this site is technically a House Divided (albeit only slightly so). At any rate, on Monday morning I brought up the idea to the other guys about my being willing to essentially
Just a few news blurbs to get us in the mood. Dim the lights and pop in your McCoys CD… From the Detroit News: The Michigan-Ohio State line opened with the Buckeyes being a 19-point favorite, matching the largest spread in the rivalry. Ohio State also was favored by 19 in 1962, and went on to win,
Could this be the final appearance for Beanie Wells in “The Game”? Chris Wells has owned the boys in the winged helmets. His freshman year? That beautiful spin and 52 yard run for a TD. Last season’s sophomore effort? Only 222 yards and 2 TD’s. What might he do for an encore? Who knows, but
Because you deserve it. Because it’s Michigan week. And because it was just that awesome… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGZvIFIW14o&feature=related[/youtube] Wow. Just, wow.
Ohio State’s big time players made big time plays to keep the Buckeye’s Big Ten title hopes alive… Chris Wells and Terrelle Pryor each went over the century mark in this one, as the Buckeyes racked up 305 yards on the ground. The rushing game was so good for Ohio State that they threw the
Time: 12:00PM EST TV/Radio: ESPN, WKNR/850 AM Weather: 40 degrees, rain/snow mix. Winds up to 23 MPH. Line: Ohio State (-9.5) How about a little vindication, here? Today, the Buckeyes walk into Fighting Illini country to take on the team that prevented them from having a perfect regular season a year ago. Illinois boasts one
“Good Terrelle leads the Big Ten in pass efficiency. Bad Terrelle is at the control of the Big Ten’s worst pass offense — although that is more an indictment of Ohio State coach Jim Tressel’s constrictive game plan than his freshman’s inability to read defenses (he’s gotten better) or tendency to float passes (also better).
Time: 12:00 PM EST TV/Radio: ESPN2/WKNR 850 AM Weather: 38 degrees (wind chill of 27), Rain/snow mix, Winds 18 MPH (WSW) Line: Ohio State (-11) Somehow, I feel that if Ohio State was still in the National Championship hunt, the suspension of wide receiver/return man Ray Small would have been a bigger topic of discussion.
The Big Ten just can’t catch a break. Despite beating Ohio State two weeks ago, and the top-ranked Texas Longhorns dropping at the hands of the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the Penn State Nittany Lions are still ranked third overall in the BCS. This is all thanks to the computer poll that has bumped Texas
This past Monday, Rick wrote a Buckeye recap that threw in the inquiry of whether Todd Boeckman should have been a part of this past Saturday’s loss to Penn State. In it, he questioned whether or not Boeckman would have given the Buckeyes a better shot at moving the ball down the field, when Terrell
The Buckeyes have 2 losses on the season. As much as it pains us to say it, both were to superior teams. Penn State did exactly what the Buckeyes couldn’t earlier in the season- go into a hostile environment and play mistake-free football. There is a question that needs to be asked. It is a
Time: 8pm EDT TV/Radio: WEWS Ch. 5, ABC Nationally Weather: 51 degrees, mostly clear, Winds 9mph (WSW) Line: Penn State (-2) Watching gameday, Lee Corso said that he has never lost his pick when he has put on a Buckeye head. Then proceding to put on a little Brutus with LeBron James by his side,
I owe Matt and the readers of WFNY a sincere apology as I was unable to post last week’s GAMBLOG before Browns kickoff. As luck would have it, he went 2-0 with his selections and moved his overall ATS record to 15-5. Let’s hope that he can keep it all going this week as we
But the BCS rankings are out, and Ohio State is fifth (FIFTH!) in the computer poll. The fact that Penn State is seventh is a bit odd, but to be ninth overall at this point in the season is not bad. The Nation will obviously be pulling for Penn State this weekend just so Ohio State can’t
Time: 3:30 PM, EDT TV/Radio: WEWS Ch. 5, WKNR AM/850. Kickoff Weather: 55 degrees (at kickoff), Winds 4 MPH (SE) Line: OSU (-4) The defensive line was abused by Wisconsin. The defense in general held their own against Purdue. But neither team we have played in the last two weeks have Javon Ringer in their
You know what I like best about this picture? Yeah, the UM fan in the Red Sox hat! Yes, our beloved Buckeyes failed to score an offensive touchdown on Purdue. But while we prepare for the gauntlet that is Michigan State and Penn State, let us take a close look at how Michigan is doing adjusting
At least in the circles I have, no Buckeyes fans have really been talking about the Michigan State Spartans. Everyone I know seems to jump straight ahead to the chance Ohio State has to make a name for themselves against Penn State on October 25th. This is a big mistake. Let’s hope Jim Tressel hasn’t
The picture above is not only amazing, but is the result of having a member of the WFNY paparazzi embedded in the Windy City. Reader and frequent commentor MoBot sent this one in as he was enjoying the lack of offense that was yesterday’s OSU-Purdue game in a Chicago establishment. When asked, Johnny Utah claimed
Time: 3:30 PM, EDT TV/Radio: WEWS Ch. 5, WKNR AM/850. Kickoff Weather: 78 degrees (at kickoff), Winds 6 MPH (SE) Line: OSU (-18.5) Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that there was not more Buckeye talk this week after our huge win in Camp Randall. But while the Badgers get to play host once again to
If you have the opportunity, go back and watch all of Chris Wells’ runs against Wisconsin again. Be prepared to be impressed. Think you can power him down? Think again. Think he’s got fullback speed? Think again. Think he doesn’t have great natural instincts? I beg to differ. Plus, he has the hammer. You can’t
