End of Baylor @ WVU (Currently 70-56 WVU) - FX
#17 Clemson @ BC - ESPN2
Tennessee @ #5 Georgia - CBS
Marshall @ Purdue - BTN
God like three plays into the game and Gholston is already laying on the QB out of bounds trash talking after someone else on the team makes a play.
He may have been whispering sweet nothing's. It was harmless.
Whoa. Staee going all staee on Braxton Miller. That looked nasty.
Miller was still in bounds when they made contact with him.
Jeez, Adams and Gholston BOTH have contain and they haul ass to the play side right away. Not very good football out of this defense.
Granted he was one of our own...but Gholston is on the fast track to reaching Kevin Grady levels of hype. For all the size and athleticism he brings to the DE spot he is just awful. Cant get off of blocks, you can run right at him and gets owned by any decent LT in the college game.
What exactly does Gholston do that gets him this much hype?
It's literally just that he's tall. It's the same reason for his hype coming out of high school.
Well this game has started differently than I expected
Anyone know of a stream for OSU vs MSU?
No, sorry, no streams exist.
Wow...Sparty getting dirty within 3 mins of the game. Cant believe any kid with a good head on his shoulders would want to go to a team that is this dirty.
Braxton Miller started off the first few plays taunting the Spartans with a ideal-state Le'Veon Bell impersonation, and Jordan Hall finishes the first knife insertion with his own version of "look at our rushing game" trolling. TD Buckeyes.
Oy vey. I get the feeling that Sparty is going to get his ass kicked today.
I have Miller on my fantasy team. Damn you State.
Buckeyes will kill lil bro.
Fine by me.
Baylor back within 1 TD. Unfortunately they now have to kick off to WVU -- might as well onsides kick, no way they can stop them.
Staee is in no danger of needing to expand their stadium, lol. Buckeyes having no trouble running the ball on Sparty so far. Even with a backup qb it looks like rough sledding for little brother.
14-7 moustaches over marshall. marshall is driving. Game is on BTN.
after that first OSU drive.
Anyone else watching intently? I've never seen a quarterback throw for over 500 yards and 5 TDs (Nick Florence) only to be trumped by a 600+ yard, 8 TD performance from another quarterback (Geno Smith).
And they say that defense wins championships. Psshhhhhh.
What exactly has wvu won besides neutering clemson?
RCMB is giving up already, it seems.
pretty sure it's "shoddy".
maybe it's a new word, a blend of shoddy and shitty.
Without Worthy...that Dline is very average for Sparty. No push in the middle means single blocking everywhere else and their DE's aren't getting the job done this season.
Also helps that Miller is actually good at running the read option
LOL hankins hits bell on the first play. Guess he did rip his head off.
Was the crowd chanting, "He's a pussy!" when Miller was injured or did I hear that incorrectly?
Yep. Trying to out-zeroclass ohio's fans I guess.
The fact that any college QB can drop 8 TDs passing on a top-25 BCS team (after last season when that same conference produced a Heisman trophy winner with crazy numbers) should lead to some serious questions about that conference.
And yeah, OSU is going to work MSU over if Maxwell doesn't keep throwing up ducks.
Battle of annoying bands who play their fight songs that nobody knows the words too after every play.
LOL maxwell nearly throws another pick.
Douche vs Turd Sandwich
Brahs vs Truck Drivers
Couches Burning vs Coolers Filling
Put two players on bell every play. Run or pass and stop MSU.
As little as WV deserves to win for allowing 63 points in regulation, Baylor deserves to lose even more. They just aren't even trying.
It blows my mind that teams in the Big 10 get crapped on for giving up 30 points, and then you have two teams giving up more points than their basketball teams would score against each other and it is an offensive showcase. Neither of these defenses look even remotely able to stop anyone with a competent offense - I would pay lots of money to see UM-Baylor or UM-WVU in a bowl game.
Man Sparty showing their hand quite a bit. I like it.
WTF is Thomas in at FB for??!! Head asplode....
It's amazing how once conference play start, teams look sharp and focused. It's a different critter than OOC play.
I am assuming that part of the "Secret Plan", which they've unveiled early, was to make Bell the oft-mentioned but hardly seen (in East Lansing, anyway) "fourth receiver". Dan Roushar trying to be the smartest man in the booth apparently.
Apparently the cure for an ailing offense is the OSU defense
Unreal. Score 63 and lose. The big 12 has no defense.
5 games in...Maxwell still is looking like a deer in headlights. I kinda feel bad for the kid with his only help is the RB behind him. At this point you have to wonder why guys like Burbidge, Arnett aren't getting on the field because the rest of the WR crew hasn't done squat.
Michigan State school of packaging... LMAO
I missed this comment. What did they say? I'm in the packaging industry and we have someone from State who works for us.
School of packaging? WTF???
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. School of PACKAGING??????
We're talking about packaging? Packaging? We don't need no MSU packaging!
School of packaging hahahah
It's next to the School of Pizza Delivery
The Michigan State School of packaging... Ha Ha Ha, what a joke
I kind of wish we would run our O more like Ohio at this point....
It's kind of like their offensive coordinator knows what he's got on his team and tries his best to use it...
Their website doesn't even work...at least for me it doesn't
Nice crappy tackle attempt by the MSU corner. He tried to shoulder-block him.
Wow, there's a lot of red in MSU's stadium today.
Can somebody please tell me what the curriculum would look like in the one and only School of Packaging in the country ( more likely in the world)?
How to fold? Gosh...
Well yeah. You have to make sure the Staee grads properly fold the box so the pizza doesn't slide out while being delivered.
In seriousness, its a engineering specialty that focuses on packaging design and packaging process efficiencies.
I hate it when either of these teams make nice plays. It pains me to see them happy.
Wow. Terrible route/throw by OSU there
Buckeye gon sparty?
FACE SHOVE!!! BOOM!! The Ohio way
Lol....jeez Hyde.....calm down Urban. On the positive note each team might look to out dirty the other.
Two dumb plays basically cancelled themselves out there. Where's that meteor?
this will turn into a brawl shortly
The Buckeyes really work the edges on Offense. Not a strength of ours on D. Mattison will need to come up with a stellar game plan in the next 8 weeks to stop them.
Ahh...Purdue tied with Marshall in the second. I knew you wouldn't let me down B1G
Hey I liked that whole "no announcers" thing for a little bit. Bring that back =(
I was in the bathroom taking a Sparty and I kept reading comments about "School of Packaging." I thought it was a sign in the stands. I exited the bathroom and hit rewind on the DVR and to my delight the "School of Packaging" is a real Sparty program!
Hahaha, Sparty's stadium is so horrible they can't get sound to come out of it
Oh no, Maxwell snapped it off! CALL AN AMBULANCE!
58-10...nice work John L. Ar-Kansas is now dead.
Heh Sparty offense not anemic today..interesting
Neither was Miami OH, California, UAB, UCF....common theme here
"Maxwell is better than you think!" seems to be the weekly storyline whenever MSU plays.
watching Dantonio squeeze Sims' ass after the almost-interception.
Seriously? The NFL scouts are going to love when someone comes completely unblocked and makes a TFL?
on the play.
First play he made this year....cut him some slack. You think it's easy to make a play when completely untouched?
Requesite Gholston blowjob by the announcers after he makes a play when no one blocks him.
And Miller makes the obvious wrong play.
Miller is scary when he runs. I don't think he quite has Denard's top gear, but he's extremely elusive.
What he does have is extra size so he can get through the LOS and arm tackles a bit easier.
He makes great cuts, like when your dog gets loose and you try to catch him. He's just toying with you.
LOL! LOL! marshall and purdue tied at 14.
In Dobson. He is considered as a potential 2nd rd pick. Big WR who can run.
Also Purdue has a stud CB who has the potential to be a 1st rder. Why can't Michigan get one since Leon Hall graduated?!?
or are care too damned foofy-looking these days?
This little delayed micro-hook route from Bell is going to get MSU roasted on a pick one of these times.
I'm surprised they're actually using Bell as the intended receiver on all these plays. Every D already knows to key on him.
Jeez Bennie Fowler. You killed yourself with that double move. He's like a human face palm out there.
Hill is looking really good in the kick return game. Why wasn't this kid returning kicks before? He's fast and makes very quick, sharp cuts. He may break one today.
He's been back there since his sophomore year. He doesn't have the speed to take it to the house.
It's amazing how bad the Sparty receivers are. I would expect after 5 yrs of recruiting that Sparty would be a little better on the perimeter.
I think once Tom is in the NFL that his career will image his brothers. Over hyped, over paid and underperformance.
Weren't they cousins?
Strange game. Offenses seem to be moving with ease up and down the field . . . and it's only 7 -3.
Braxton showing some inexperience with those reads
i don't see how Braxton Miller can keep this up all season. At some point i would think he would get banged up.
There are bad replay officials?
How is MSU not focusing on keeping contain? They're actively trying to lose it on every snap. Not a great day for Narduzzi.
and gone last year.
One thing I will give Miller....throws much better on the run than Denard does. Of course being 6'2 probably helps compared to 5'11.
Yes I know Russell Wilson was sub 6'...but being a baseball player helped him greatly.
He also has, you know, simple route packages to read. Definately a better decison maker under pressure, but we saw similar things out of Denard in 2010 with those spread offense route packages and quick throws.
I agree with you.
Russell Wilson was always the smartest guy on the field, he made a lot of smart plays with his quickness to open things up.
Oh shit....Gholston down. Hope the kids ok.
I don't. Fuck Gholston. Karma's a bitch you POS.
looks like Gholston and Miller are both hurt.
Oh shit. I hope they're alright.
Yikes. Hope everyone's ok.
By his own teammate.
Wow. Lewis knocked his own man out.
Not good. Hope they're ok.
Whew. Thank god he's moving. Probably got knocked out there for a second.
tom gholston was knocked out. Might have a concussion.
Not according to MSU's trainers. Just had the wind knocked out of him, which is why he wasn't moving for 30 seconds while lying completely limp.
Tom, blowed out
Wow. Can't believe he just got up like that. That looked awful.
Damn, he got knocked the f out there. That could've been much worse, thankfully it wasn't though.
God that HD ribbon they have on their stadium is like a damn jail cell keeping people confined in. All it displays is ads too.
It's horrible. Way too obtrusive.
their clever AD thinks it's a pretty good deal. He and Dantonio both pick up 40/40s and go to watch circular porn on it some nights, it is rumored, so. . . bonus situation all around. (See what I did there?)
EDIT: No, that's vicious flap-jaw nonsense.
I'm waiting for Musberger to call Devin Smith "Vincent Smith."
Not a good decision by Miller.
Wow...that was a Denard decision by Miller.
Yeah Denard hates you.
That's fine....a bad decision is a bad decision.
Speaking of terrible decision making...
Gotta say though, MSU has had a great pass D these last few years.
I thought Braxton was supposed to be a "better passing version of Denard"??
well to be fair he hasn't thrown back to back to back to back INTs.....yet
I've blocked that game from my memory and have no idea what you're talking about.
Alright. Not gonna lie...I'm starting to get worried about the Purdue game.
Edit: Just saw Marshall has 218 yards to Purdue's 250. Downgrade worry a little bit.
Eastern Kentucky, EMU, and now Marshall. They played ND tough, but so did UM. Purdue has a lot to prove.
No one stays that motionless for that long when the wind is knocked out of them. That diagnosis is a load of bull. So much for protecting the players.
Yeah, can you even get the wind knocked out of you by getting blasted in the head? That sounds more like a terrifying head injury symptom.
I swear I saw one of the trainers say he's got a concussion right when they sat him down on the sideline. The way his head was hit there was no way the wind was knocked out of him. Very much BS.
Uh oh, here comes a new center with all big ten QB mad max !!!
I call bullshit on that. The replay showed his head and neck being hit hard by his own guy. People do not lay motionless when they get the wind knocked out of themselves.
I was thinking the exact same thing. Also, didn't really like how he pushes the trainers away when they were trying to help.
Spartan radio guy said Tom thought he stretched his neck too far.
What the hell happened to VaTech? Lossing to Cinci? I know David Wilson was a big loss, but come on. Did they lose anybody else?
They also lost Danny Coale I think. I just think they came into the season overhyped, they'll probably come out with the same record as last year though once they get through the ACC.
They lost nearly their entire OL. I think they had 3 O-linemen go in late rounds in the draft.
What a lie from the medical staff. Getting speared in the skull, not moving for a few minutes, and shaking your head around and squinting from dizziness is an obvious sign of a KO. How do you get the "wind knocked out of you" from a head collision? He may be ok, but I hope for his sake Tom sits for a while, until the half even.
If he comes back in this game I will literally the last little bit of respect I have for Dantonio. A decision like that is uncontionable.
He's back in the game.
I cannot even fucking believe that. That's totally irresponsible.
Dantonio--or any coach--has to go with what the medical staff says.
Wow, John L Smith may be the worst football coach in college. He has taken a National Championship contender and turned them into a bad Indiana. They lost 58-10 to Texas A&M
I admit I spent close to an hour reading their live-blog. I have tears in my eyes and my abs hurt from laughing.
He may be the worst football coach in America regardless of level.
Without being sarcastic, I actually think this may be a true statement.
I have never felt this way before and I have absolutely no background in football, besides watching it my entire life, but I think I may be a better football coach than John L Smith.
I was not being sarcastic.
The Aggies looked really good on both sides of the ball, but the Hogs turned it over way too often to have a chance. What do you know, even a record setting QB like Tyler Wilson looks bad when he's got no time to pass.
Sparty receivers are poop.
I'll give this to the Buckeyes....their secondary is sticking like glue to the WR's.
Have MSU's WRs been able to get separation against anyone this season?
I have to say, Maxwell places his passes really well. The receivers just can't make plays.
He's probably the best quarter back on their team.
If he could put a little more speed on his passes he would be a pretty great QB. It looks like he just has a tad too much touch on each pass.
I don't know. He has good touch on the shorter throws but his deeper passes are frequently late and/or underthrown.
EDIT: and then he airmailed that last one.
Purdue over Marshall now 42-14 in the second quarter.
Should we be worried about playing them next week? I know they haven't played anyone but they're doing what they're supposed to be doing against that competition.
I was, but the box score shows Marshall is outgaining Purdue. I haven't watched much of the game, but Marshall seems to have moving the ball well. But three INTs two of which are pick-6s probably hurts a lot. Didn't see any of them so I don't know who's fault they were, but that does not seem very reproducable.
Holy hamburgers, Purdue up 42-14 and driving in the 1st half on Marshall.
Am I the only one worried that Short will put pressure on Denard and that his inability to throw the football will result in multiple pick sixes?
Yes....against ND Teo and the LB's getting pressure on horrible PA plays was the problem. I dont recall Nix getting a lot of penetration at all.
If we can solve the whole PA for no reason plays we should be ok.
a bunch of 18-year-olds waving the keys to Dad's old Cheap Jerokee.
MSU definitely has an elite D.
Yeah, very good. Although not quite as good as last year.
We need OSU and Staee to beat each other up.
But, these teams are beating each other up, MSU's center is out, Gholston may have gotten a concussion, and Jordan Hall looks like he just tore up his knee.
More sparty drops..
That wasn't a great throw by Maxwell. It was high and behind him.
Roby has been the best player on the field today.
Does this stupid punt formation even reduce blocks? Doesn't seem like it to me.
No punt. Nice block by Ohio there....surely a minor "Sparty No" moment there.
Sure, give it back, Ohio. Ruin a nice special teams fail with a QB fail.
Wow Buckeyes are sloppy.
Wow...not sure what the OSU OC is doing with this play calling. THey haven't got to the edge much all game on that speed option.
Yet, they continue to run it.
Man, State is playing these options amazingly.
Which team is going to be more incompetent? That's what this game is looking like.
You know all those designed QB runs from the shotgun that Denard does that look like they are reads but really aren't?
Miller needs some of those.
We'd better not take Purdue lightly next week. The have been strong all year.
Miller wasn't even looking to pitch. He's marked, keeps it, and just runs right into the defender. I'm sure they've practiced that.
I remember him arguing in the booth with Spielman last year wanting to pull Robinson for not protecting the ball.
"Can't turn the ball over. Can't have it."
"But he's the best player on the field."
"I will have none of those turnovers."
I miss their angry banter. I really thought they were going to get into a fist fight at some point.
"Angry" being the operative word. Both of them sounded like they would rather be anywhere else but in the booth announcing a game. Spielman still does.
Neither of these teams deserve to win this game. And this OSU defense looks horrible.
Braxton clearly doesn't know how to run the speed option...
Does it hurt anyone else to be rooting for the bucks?
Nope. But I'm probably in the minority that likes Ohio to win all their games until Michigan.
It seems like this backup center is holding up pretty well vs Hankins
Hey, he threw the ball away instead of throwing an interception under pressure.
Can you do that?
Replacement refs would have called that "good".
Boston College leading Clemson 21-17 late in the 2nd quarter.
Laces out Dan..... Conroy
Conroy...has been a downer for Sparty this year. Surprised by that one.
He's lost his confidence on the field and in his life.
As bad as the Ohio pass defense is, it doesn't help the Spartans cause that Maxwell has a penchant for targeting graduate assistants on longer passes. Also, the ground also causes incompletions.
This is kind of like last year's game between Sparty and OSU. Both of them playing awful, neither looking like a team that deserves to win.
If we don't completely throttle this MSU offense at home it will be a disgrace. They are horrible. Now, their defense will cause us some trouble, and we saw what happens when Michigan gets pressured last week; but there's no way MSU should be able to be successful on offense.
OSU has struggled to stop the run this season....and to counter that Dantonio has Maxwell throwing 25 times in the 1st half? I must be missing something in that.
Looking good for Tiger fans thus far, on both fronts. Tigers lead 2-0 and White Sox are trailing 3-0.
Knock on wood, please.
Urban mentions that MSU is blitzing every down; helllooooooo max protect, Mr Borges. That means hellooooooo signle coverage. Helloooooo Mr. Funchess.
we all hoped it would be!
If this were the SEC they would call this a magnificent defensive spectacle.
But it's the B1G, and we know better.
before we can get the ball to Funchess we must be able to handle the pressure with an accurate pass...not exactly our forte.
True enough. It is well demonstrated that when Michigan sets its mind to it they are capable of protecting Denard and giving him time to throw; much of the dangerous pressure he endured in South Bend was from players the playcall deliberately left unblocked.
The UM-MSU key has been unusually consistent in the past decades--run for more yards, win the game. With Michigan's need to push the Spartans to their heels and the questionable passing offenses of both teams, that is just as true as ever this year. Michigan needs to get something done up front.
Defense is really optional in the Big 12.
Optional? You're generous. If nobody has taken the option, is it really an option?
Good point, but look at it this way as well - if you're in the Big XII and your team is wont to give up between 600-700 total yards in a game, the option is everywhere and everyone because obviously nobody is covering. The playbook is chock full of "just sort of run to this spot and stand there in case a receiver should come by" plays apparently, and "zone coverage" is measured in parsecs.
Marshall has outgained Purdue, yet trails by four TDs. That's pretty amazing.
INTs and pick-6s will do that to you. We should know.
Illinois lies down on its back and begs no more from a dangerous PSU bent on revenge AT Illinois. And the John L. Smith Razorburns just. . . keel over to hell and die against the Aggies.
Can there be many people in a more miserable situation in life than John L L L L L Smith? (Excluding those with deaths in the family, homeless, other obvious things much worse, etc). You're bankrupt, you don't know what state you live in, you get a special opportunity to coach a good football team for one season, and... nobody will ever hire you again. The team is in full-on meltdown mode.
His brother passed a few weeks ago. Bankruptcy, his brother's death, and this nightmare of a season.
I laughed at his "smile" press conference. I felt really bad for him once I found out that his brother passed away earlier that week.
I must have forgotten that. Man, that's awful.
I mean, when he was an MSU coach he was fun to make fun of--but seriously, this is an awful set of circumstances, and other than investing unwisely (in a market that nobody realized would crater the way it did) he hasn't done anything to ask for this kind of disaster. It's not like he was the one hiring a mistress on his football staff, after all.
That was some bad football.
Before we speculate too much on how to beat Staee we better set our sights on beating a really good Purdue team away next week.
What is your definition of really good? Really good for Purdue or in general?
Really good for Purdue. Hope seems to get the maximum from his low ranked recruiting classes.
...we have a brief piece on how Taylor Martinez has improved his arm punting skills this year, as well as Jesse Palmer squinting and looking off-camera, wondering what Lou Holtz is doing back there...
I'd make fun of the Taylor Martinez throwing...but after last weekend I am going to try to hold off on ripping any other QB and throwing.
Purdue has a good d line that plays fast and physical. I'm curious to see how we handle it. Not worried about their o much with the way our d is playing.
Kawaan Short is terror.
He is similar to Worthy. A lot of snap count guessing but isn't an explosive player.
I love that our D had a great game against ND but we only have one other good game against UMASS (and we arguably had the worst defensive performance against them to that point). Aside from that we got blown off the ball by 'bama and cut to death by Air Force. I'm not trying to be super-negative but we shouldn't be anointing the D as great just yet
This is a thoroughly unimpressive game thus far.
Georgia's really melting down here. An extra point will give Tennessee 20 unanswered.
Georgia does not look that impressive.
Definitely Doesn't look like a top 5 team !
Richt gets on list of hot seat coaches, Georgia becomes highly overrated. Lather, rinse, repeat.
still cant believe that 5 Star LB Lawrence Thomas is now a no name fullback.
And there it is. Tennessee 30-27, a game a lot of people were already calling "over." And, who could blame them? I thought it was too.
Good to see Storm Klein playing...NOT!
OSU getting away with mugging Maxwell there. Refs let a helmet-first hit on a defenseless receiver go in the first half, too.
Holy shit! State passes for a first down.
Hey, I liked that play. Unbalanced line. Sims as LT, goes out uncovered. The DE just charges in, but Maxwell knows Sims is open and nails him. A pity about the flag.
Haven't seen a good replay, but I'm guessing State had an ineligible guy split out, and that guy forgot that he was ineligible. Still, very creative play design.
Jeez do the sparty fans know any chants that dont involve cussing? That is all I hear from that fanbase.
No, they don't care. They're drunk and horny.
Are the MSU fans really chanting "Bullshit" on an ineligible-receiver penalty? That's not exactly a judgment call.
That's some high-quality SEC defense going on in the Tennessee-UGa game.
Penn State loses to Ohio (not the Ohio) and clobbers Illinois. Go figure!
Illinois is the new Indiana.
Ohio could go undefeated this year. Frank Solich has done a hell of a job turning that program around.
If they can get by UMass, who is currently beating them 24-20.
Jeez...ok these receivers are BAD. Maxwell has been on the money most of this game.
Geez. That's such a beautiful throw. I really hope the MSU receivers keep in being this bad throughout the year. I would really hate to all of a sudden seem them learn out ot catch when they play us.
Damn, these guys can't catch. Getting weird at this point.
MAKE PLAYYYYSS!!! Ah, I'm loving this.
Maxwell has been getting killed by his receivers all year.
They really can't catch, can they?
I can see MSU going for a stupid fake here.
"We call it Little Giant!!"
Nah. You play safe defense in that kind of situation, so it's not an easy make. And in a game this low-scoring a field goal is pretty valuable.
One of my favorite cultural curiosities about the SEC is the absence of nets behind the goalposts; fans just throw the balls back. I watched for that when I went to Tennessee and LSU ten years ago. Obviously, in Ann Arbor the ball will go over the top.
MSU's pass protection does look improved. Either that or Ohio really doesn't have much of a rush.
Keep in mind that OSU has not played well on D all year. This is not a vintage OSU D. MSU is getting the ball out just in time quite a bit still.
That's been a big storyline for OSU so far this season, not getting any pressure on the passer.
MSU is exploding today on offense!
Dang, MSU has a really good kicker. 5 50yd field goals. yikes
Except that he's missed five FGs this year. Good leg strength, crappy accuracy.
Yeah, he's missed one in every game this year too.
Hahaha @ Geogia triple covering the flag route on that replay. That's assignment football right there.
Dantonio said in an interview yesterday that the WRs need to play like they did in practice. If they practiced dropping easy passes in traffic, then they are doing awesome, I must say.
Conroy puts the Spartans to within one. Early nomination (again) for Dan Conroy's foot as the offensive player of the game.
Somewhere Brionte is holding a cup of water and watching this game. I'm surprised he hasn't been able to jump by Hyde by now.
Really? Did anybody actually believe Meyer when he said he would use big backs to run power despite is whole career doing the opposite? Well apparently some people believed him...
and his name is "Brionte Dunn".
Am I the only one that thinks Miller reverses the field way too much when running?
I think it worked against teams like UAB, Miami and UCF.
Come on Tom....your a top ten pick according to everyone. Pick it up
Not surprised by that facemask by Tom.
Gholston personal foul hand to face. Shocking!!!!!
Nice penalty TOM gholston, you piece of shit.
They really should include Toms penalties in his stats, lol. 3 sacks, 10 first down penalties for the other team.
The dude is psychotic.
If Ohio scores here that's game.
i dunno...Dantonio has made a living winning these types of games the last 3 yrs. Love him or hate him, Sparty has won a lot of close games in the 4th with great D and opportunistic offense.
That's his forte--a late miracle TD. Holding OSU to 3 (as it appears they're doing) keeps them right there. A buckeye TD would really be killer.
I know but now he has a team that is lucky to score 9 against a non Mac school.
I think this is the first time I have ever wanted Urban Meyer to win a game.
Marshall scores. Purdue now leading them 42-28.
Blocking....and then a little more blocking.
