wasn't playing Sagarin's #126 team in the nation (including 19 FCS teams higher ranked than Buffalo), I don't see them winning with the talent they are showing today.
Early games OPEN THREAD
They did NOT look like the #2 team in the country. Their right tackle on the OL looked awful. He is very vulnerable to a speed rusher.
Why is it only Buffalo gets called for pass interference?
Buff's scout did a shitty job of contain on Miller on the 3/13.
West Virginia just got away with a pretty blatant hold to get a first down. Looks like they are about to score and get away with a win.
WVU finally goes ahead vs W&M, 3 mins to go
Almost a little odd how BUffalo conceded so early. Not that they were going to win, but 6 minutes left?
I mean the same call could or could not have been made on the Buffalo defender on a long pass.
Look, in this game, the Buckeyes have dominated as expected. But in the second half, they basically hung on. I thought they might the best team in the world after their torrid start. But then I realized that they had scripted all their early plays, and Buffalo was completely Buffaloed by their surroundings, first game jitters and just nervousness.
Miller demonstrates he will stay in the pocket and make throws downfield. So here is the reality, if you can't match the athletic ability of Ohio, you are in trouble. But that is their edge at this point. It's not based on experience or ability. It is based simply on talent, making better plays with better and more guys.
I love the Buckeye running game. Jordan Hall is a great runner. They have more depth than anyone in the league. And a good Oline.
At this point in the game, Miller has nothing to prove. Guiton is a terrific backup. I would put Guiton in.
I agree with you on every point but one: I don't think the O line looked particularly good today. Most of ohio's big runs came off of plays where everyone followed Miller and left the back largely undefended, or pass plays where everything broke down and Miller took off for 40 yards. To be fair, this will happen some against even the better defenses, because of all ohio's talent. But Buffalo blew up several plays today because ohio couldn't get key blocks made. If I was an ohio fan, I'd be a little concerned.
Salukis are making a comeback. Illinois better get it together here.
Saluki's just got a stop, a possible upset on the horizon (although its just the Illini).
I'm sayin they score but blow the 2 point conversion
We're not going to miss the beginning of our game are we?
They said we'd see kickoff but who knows
Illinois wins! Go Big 10!
