Ryan Lochte is going to be speaking on national tv. This is going to be good.
And Florida fans chanting that Notre Dame is overrated is rich.

Florida, at least by comparison to Notre Dame, is not overrated. 2 national titles since 2006 is a lot better than none since 1988.
Jeez, the only game that isn't obvious is Iowa State v Oklahoma State.
Not quite on topic...but I love seeing that Mich/Sparty visitor thread, seems like they took 2 braeks and it just kept on going and going.
EDIT: on espn bottomline that is
If anyone wants to drink themselves to death......Galloway is doing the bucknuts/purdue game. That should be a nice slurpfest
So since its hate week one figured I'd post an anecdote quickly. At 7/11 here in San Diego. I see this guy wearing an Ohio State jersey and resist the urge to say something like "bummer the fans don't get the same deal on tattoos that players do". Anyways the guy gets into this huge truck as he leaves. License plate reads "umadbro". Wow.
LOL Ohio defense
First play for Purdue is an 83 yard TD pass. This could be a shootout.
Nice first series on D, Ohio!
A&M just went straight down the field and scored. Wow. With as bad as the LSU offense is, this might actually be a game.
Edit: Of course, Purdue and A&M both miss their extra points.
for the Ohio defense
Is GERG coaching Ohio?
I'd love to see Michigan do this play with Denard/Fitz/Gallon. It looked just like a regular read option with the QB/HB but VT then had a WR coming around for a reverse, and got a pretty big gain.
2 missed XP's. Good lord, way to shine in the moment kickers. Up against big teams, missing XPs is not a recipe for success.
Wow. I live in Madison and just have basic cable. The Wisconsin game isn't on against ls Minnesota
did she ever leave?
Fumble Braxton. First turnover I've personally seen from him this year. K'Waan short pulled it out of his possession while on the ground trying to recover the drop.
Probably should've been OSU ball. I don't know the rule there but he was laying on it with all extremities down lol. Can you just come snatch it away like that?
Missed opportunity by Purdue. You're not going to get a lot of turnovers. You need to seize those chances.
Would not throw like that.
Wow, A&M is just a different team at home. They could have and probably should have beaten Florida and right now they are taking it to LSU. The difference is I don't think LSU has the offense to come back from a deficit like Florida did.
Also, LSU defenders are dropping like flies in this game.
Johnny football is becoming one of my new favorite players.
is just running right through LSU's defense. Making it look really easy so far.
So far, LSU is playing a lot of man coverage on the Texas A&M offense, which is making old school "three yards and a cloud dust" more like "twenty yards and a desperate tackle".
EDIT: Nice throwback for a TD...except the chop block brings it back plus another 15. Oops.
Have military uniforms? Is it a military school?
A&M runs the Vince Smith throwback screen and scores! But both linemen blocked the same guy in space and got called for a chop. Not sure what they were thinking there.
Now they got to punt again, I'm liking our chances in that hell hole more and more every week that goes by.
On BTN Live the other day, someone tweeted that ohio at 7-0 still has that AP National Championship in their sites, I of course ROFLMFAO and SMH
Nuts have been a slow starting team all season long and I fully expect them to win this game by about 20.
Purdue's WRs are Spartying it up out there.
Another LSU defender down.
Is Bellomy the QB for Purdue this game?
Texas A&M is looking really good but you know that LSU will adjust
letting ohio of the hook
They are who we thought they were!
Wierd how football and transitive properties work. Purdue, today looks like the normal, semi-legit Purdue they are year in and year out (I know, Purdue sucks and is never good, whatever). Against Michigan, they never had a pulse.
You mean college football is a high variablity sport? Who would have guessed....
I realize that LSU will likely adjust, but one wonders if LSU is trying out parts of their defensive game plan for next week (Alabama) here. Leave the perimeter open, give people just enough room to catch some throwbacks and screens, etc...
Good hypothesis. Though I personally don't think LSU is all that great and they may not be able to adjust (offensively, because they're going to have to score today) i.e. one has to have a competent offense to adjust to in order to go to it!
I think the Alabama LSU game is Nov 3.
How is Braxton missing his WR by so much? He's throwing fastballs that Tacopants couldn't even catch.
Umm...because he's not a very good passer? I mean, I thought this was established already/
Name the best 3 LSU rbs ever:
Before or after Eric Martin? We should have a cut-off line here, yes?
It's not like they've needed them, not if they are going to allow sacks like that one on Mettenberger.
they have no offense at all. They'd score 0 points on us
Haha OSU. Nice return by Purdue.
HAHAHAHA PURDUE KR TD WTF
Break up Purdue!
points to Purdue in 1 QT as we did all game, so lovely to see that
Defense and special teams for OSU are just total garbage.
Crab cakes and football. That's what Maryland is known for.
Ahora is the tiempo to prepare
Why has Purdue abandoned their screen game? That was their bread and butter and IU shredded Ohio with that kind of stuff.
Oh great TWIS, may you exacerbate their suffering....
Turns out the Auburn guy who shouted at the airport might have been on to something.
Also, the only reason Gus Malzahn wasn't fired a year or two ago was $$->Cam and Malzahn. Clearly he's in over his head without good coordinators which is a surprise to no one but ESPN giving how amazing he did at ISU
After watching Auburn suction up high-level recruits for several years now, I would love to see them fall well short of bowl eligibility and their recruiting class self destruct.
Revenge of the cookie duster mustache!
That was a good Zoltan impression
Holy cow - I had 2009 MSU flashbacks there. It worked, though.
Fake punt conversion from the 20 = risky & OSU special teams suck lol.
BALLLLLSY fake punt....Way to give it up Ohio.
very sly and gutsy, hahahahaha
ohio fans have to be so annoyed right now
Going for it on 4th and 1 from ur own 19!
When you have a punter that can effectively rugby punt, that little fake is an option on every punt. It's a great weapon to have...he has a crease, he runs. But if the crease collapses, then he just kicks it and you have great coverage.
But he's got to make the correct read there. Zoltan against MSU and (on the plus side) the VT punter in the Sugar Bowl did not, and it blew up in their faces.
Someone on the ohio sideline sais, "put your f-ing hands up"
I don't feel sorry for them.
They have a lot of talent. This is a coaching issue.
Although they had FB Boren in playing LB a few minutes ago, so there's that...
And they're probably going to lose their entire defensive line after this year as well.
This year is fickell's reward for sticking around last year. He will not be back.
Two free first downs thanks to LSU penalties on just that drive. I am thinking that Les Miles is wondering why he can't get first downs this easily....
....and LSU has another defensive tackle hobbling a little after that play. They've got one or two more, I think, before they start throwing freshmen to the wolves though, so no worries yet, right?
I would not be at all surprised for a Heacock comeback.
Heacock hired Meyer at Illinois St. several years ago.
Purdue is killing them with that quick hitch crap.
LOL. Did that side judge just take an extra step when he spotted that ball?
It's like he looked at where the first down marker was and just walked a couple feet past it. Gave Purdue at least a yard.
Honestly...how can LSU be this awful on Offense year after year?? I mean they have recruited well and just suck on a weekly basis.
ESPN reporting Golson for ND will not start. If they keep going with Rees, it is possibly the dumbest thing they could do. He's like Tim Lincecum. He's nice in relief, terrible in starts.
So is ND smart for starting a guy who suffered a concussion last week?
give ohio as much angst as possible
Temple is continuing their revenge tour right now. Up 10-0 on undefeated Rutgers early. Would be pretty funny to see Temple run the table in the Big East after being allowed to rejoin.
When did pass interference become a spot foul in college football?
It's a spot foul if the interference occurs less than 15 yards downfield.
I'm guessing if they're inside the 15 but I was surprised by that too. No half-the-distance?
Worst thing that could've happened.
Terrible pass by Terbush.
And Purdue blows the long drive.
Hope playing for 3 pts inside of the 10. Surprised by that one...go for the throat Hope.
Of course I fully understand why he was playing for 3 after that god awful decision.
Buckeyes INT in end zone for touchback. TerBush'd.
Purdue with a 19 play, almost 10 minute drive per ESPN gamecast...I guess they liked it so much when we dropped a 17-play drive on them that they're dinking and dunking Ohio all the way down the field.
And yes, notwithstanding the long pass to start the game, that might be because that is their only offensive option (which is somewhat confirmed by the endzone interception...)
they just blew a FG opportunity, can't wait to play ohio
He actually threw it behind the LB. As in, that pass was so covered that the LB almost overran it
T. Boone Pickens logo on the helmet with McDonald's Orange Drink colored uniforms.
New punt returner for Purdue please.
omg. catch the ball please.
Fortunately, Johnson felt right back on that. Purdue ball. Otherwise, we reward failure on offense with failure on offense. Don't give the Buckeyes anything for free, Purdue.
Ohio is not the most well-disciplined team, it seems.
aww, poor guy, had a nice cushy job last year, now....not so much
in typical fashion.
Purdue can't stop being Purdue in this one.
For having an offense that throws ~30 screens a game, Purude is pretty terrible at running them.
Except they've only run like 3 or 4 this game. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
A&M just made a 54 yard FG with about 10 yards to spare. Yes, the same guy that hit the upright on an extra point. Kickers are weird.
where quaterback and running back talent goes to die (or never exist in the first place)
And also WR talent apparently.
nice sack right there.
That's what I heard someone yell on TV; "how was he not offsides?"
This must be the B1G championship-caliber Purdue team that Herbie was talking about.
Ohio's O-Line sucks too.
It's official...OSU sucks except for Braxton Miller who is unfortunately really really good.
OK St. looks likes a creamsicle today.
Well, the did lose a first year RR team...
Looks like Sam Houston State
Jesus. Go for it, you bunch of Zooks.
LSUs offense is just turrble. Louisiana Tech tagged A&M for 57 points last week, you'd think Louisiana State could score A point, lol.
LSU needs to drop some money and get a real OC. They've been offensively-challenged for years and it seems to only get worse each year
And maybe John Williams to write them a fight song that doesn't frighten children, lmao.
Damn. Shoulda gone for it on 4th down!
Good lord Purdue. How the hell do you put those kind of drives together and get no points?
Seriously? What a terrible penalty on Short. Idiot.
$1 says OSU scores on this play
Miller just got drilled.
Ouch, pretty clear roughing the passer penalty. Dumb.
Why don't people think when they play football?
Special teams break down on kickoff return.
Purdue's DL is starting to play a lot better.
It almost seems like he went for that hit on Miller thinking it was going to be the last play of the half.
He definitely had lots of time to think about it before he finally hit Miller.
Holy Crap...LSU is in the red zone? never thought I would see that tday
It seems like LSU has woken up now.
Purdue blew two major scoring opportunities.
Turnovers and penalties have hurt Ohio too.
Seems Short got sick of chasing Miller all over the backfield so when he got the chance he drilled him. Not a smart play but I'm sure it gets frustrating chasing someone like Miller when you are 300 lbs.
Gotta say, Purdue's D looked legit that half of football
WTF that is a PI. The WR was trying to break back for the ball and the defender was holding his arm back.
It was rather nice of Braxton Miller to end the half with a little game of 500 at the goal line, and to even allow Purdue to win that round. Wasn't the line something like -14.5 for this game?
LSU finally completes a pass as A&M blows a 12 point lead in two minutes. Man, their defense is bad.
A&M came from the Big 12. Did you expect anything different?
But if they called illegal touching on Ohio, then how is that reviewable then?
i hate that instead of showing the replay of the punt we get commercials. Also Beth Mowins is super annoying.
Why even try and run a read option with Terbush?
They've done it multiple times today. It's like having Navarre run a read option. I don't understand it at all.
Why was that illegal? I get that purdue has the option to take the ball there but what makes it illegal?
Well, Purdue just unfortunately Purdued that pass coverage. 1st down again for Miller & Company here.....and after more Purduing, 1st and goal.
Purdue just plain Purwon't.
Well Purdue had their chances, but they just pissed those away. Does Purdue try Marve? The weakness (well the biggest) is the pass D of Ohio, and Marve may be able to more effectively stretch the field.
EMU hitting with slightly firmer pillows at the moment
Confirmed by MVictors, MSU in shiny chrome helmets.
Well we're pretty much fucked. They're practically Oregon with those helmets now.
Looks like EMU
Finally Purdue goes to what works...
You would think Army could find tougher pillows. 0-6 Eastern still up on 1-5 Army, though. Why isn't this on TV?
to last week's barely-win, if osu loses this week with yet another turrible defensive performance, added to a mediocre offensive performance, there should be some good TWIS fodder.
Why wasn't Purdue doing this all freaking game? It's exactly what IU did, but Purdue actually has some semblance of a defense.
Eastern Michigan is leading 28-17 over Army at halftime. It is more bad defense than good offense. EMU QB Tyler Benz has thrown 4 TD's.
Sweeeeet drive by Purdue. Had OSU chasing their tails.
And now Ohio has given up more yards to Purdue than either UM or Wisc in the whole game. While at home.
You watch; Wisconsin will lose two more games and Purdue will end up winning the le-something division after all.
Also, is it time to start acknowledging the existence of the Angry Ohio Linebacker Hating God yet? AOLBHG has a nice ring to it...
Purdue is probably the most frustrating team in the nation at going away frim their offense against good teams. They do it against ND every year. My mom has been complaining about it for years. "Why did they stop all of the short passes? It looks like they aren't even trying to win anymore." It must be a mustache thing.
First they called the VT QB down as he spun out of a tackle and completed what would have been at least a 20 yard completion (result punt). After the punt Boyd passed the ball to Watkins, he clearly fumbled the ball and the replay shows he fumbled it and the officials still called him down (result Clemson got a TD, three plays later.
Fumble! Purdue recovers.
Danny Hope looked like a 3 yr old kid on christmas with that smile and how he was clapping. That needs to be a gif
Well that was pretty clearly a fumble...so don't fuck it up refs.
This bugs the crap out of me. Why do they review plays that were obviously called correctly on the field (like this one), but don't review a call that was obviously wrong on the field (like the Illinois fumble two yards before the end zone against Ohio a few years back)? This stuff isn't rocket science.
This makes me a lot more comfortable about next week's game against Nebraska.
Aaaaannnddd Purdue blows another opportunity...
Holy hell, Purdue. You're doing everything you can to not win this game.
That kick was 4 feet in the air.
Purdue is trying REALLY hard to give this game away.
Wind knocked out of him
You sure Mark?
Sure. He's already passed the test. The trainer kneeling down next to him asked him "do you have a concussion?" He answered "no". Test passed. At least the MSU version.
Nah. He wasn't even laying motionless and unresponsive, that I could tell. That's the true sign that he got his wind knocked out.
In all seriousness, hope he's ok. Looks like maybe a rib...
Can't say I didn't see this one coming. Purdue has had plenty of chances to put this game further out of reach but just can't seem to ever capitalize.
Even if Purdue loses today, though, Ohio State has further shown that they are very, very beatable.
If Purdue doesn't win this game, all everyone will see is 8-0. Not the fact that Ohio is significantly struggling against two of the worst teams in the B1G. God, just hold on Purdue.
Did the ESPN BottomLine just say that Everett Golson won't start, but he will play? If so, WTF is Brian Kelly doing? If he is playing, then you can't say you aren't starting him because of the concussion.
I can't figure out why they don't just start Tommy Rees. They let Golson derp around all game and after they put themselves into a jam, Rees just comes in and saves them
Wow, he looks in rough shape.
Shoulder or concussion for Braxton?? Sounds like head as I'm typing this. Definitely a hard tackle to the ground and the impact may have been enough for head injury. That sucks for Braxton and Ohio; hopefully things turn out well, I'm sure we'll have updates on the matter soon.
Hope Miller's okay. I want him full strength when we put an end to their perfect season, so there's no excuses.
Damn. Miller doesn't look good at all. Hope he's okay.
Ok, jokes aside...what kind of injury is that? That does not look good. Hope it's nothing serious.
Collar bone? Looks much worse than just a concussion. He looked like he was in a ton of pain.
He's doubled over, so that's probably not a concussion. More likely a rib or shoulder injury.
Yeah, but he was not moving at all when he went down
Braxton didn't look too good getting to that cart. Hope the kid is alright. I want to see him go up against Jake Ryan this year at full health.
Wow he couldn't even stand up straight, motor skills are affected by that impact. Get him a head CT. Damn I know things look worse than they really are sometimes but he looked, well, not so good.
That pass from Guiton has no velocity. It's going to be tough for them to mount the comeback without Miller.
Dang, I really hope he's okay. Miller walking off to the cart looked bad, hate to see that with any one
It looks like even shallow breaths are excruciating. I feel for the kid, that's a terrible and pretty scary kind of pain.
Stop running up the middle Purdue
Braxton looks awful. Feel bad for him.
September/October Heisman, win all early games in season, poor defense, quarterback getting knocked out of games. I've seen this movie...
Wow, Miller looked aweful. I'm suprised they even let him walk anywhere, usually that is something they bring the cart onto the field for.
P.S. this guy shouldn't be speculating on his injury.
Didn't really speculate as much as observe and say what he saw. I just noted below, but it's the best sideline reporting I've seen, it had actual information.
Glad to see them burning those TOs early
Lewis actually had the most actual news out of a sideline reporter I've ever heard. Good stuff from him. By what he's saying this isn't ribs, guys. His head and/or neck were affected.
Geez. They don't need to lose Hankins now, too..
You have to take sideline reports with a grain of salt. All he really said was they were checking is neck and arm strength. Looking at how he reacted getting up and moving I would say it is a rib injury. I've had those before and it hurts to move anything. I would think if it was really a head injury then he would have been laid out and a collar put on him right away to restrict his movements. I saw him moving his hands right after the hit so I don't think he was knocked out at all.
Wisconsin seems to be back to their old self. Running game looks real good.
Ohio State gives the Boilermakers two points there with an illegal block in the back in the end zone. 22-14 Purdue. Otherwise, nice little scramble by Guiton for what would have been a 1st down perhaps. Thanks, Urban - I smiled there.
I'll take it, but that was a weak call.
If Purdue beats the would-be #7 team, 2 weeks after we throttled Purdue, does that mean that M should be like #4 or 5???
A&M misses a long field goal and is still down 12-14.
Feel bad as I can for a Buckeye. Miller's a tough dude. Off to the hospital apparently.
I can't stand the Suckeyes but never want to see a kid go down with an injury that sends them to the hospital. Prayers are with him and his family.
He has serious head trauma. Probably swelling causing loss of the motor skills. He needs to get to the hospital. Maybe ribs too.
But I drove by one last night on my way home from the office. I was making my un educated medical guess on what was wrong.
Stop running up the middle Purdue
Stop running up the middle Purdue
Seriously, the play calling that drive makes me think Purdue is now trying not to lose. Do you know the best way to lose against a team that's probably better than you? By playing not to lose.
I suppose Purdue is betting Ohio won't be able to drive the field. Which, admittedly, is a safe bet
Play with fire, get yourself burned.
The fat lady is warming up.
Only one timeout for Ohio. This could ice the game.
Purdue just Purdid! Interception!
Down goes the "Best Team in the Big Ten".
I hope there are a ton of recruits at that Ohio game.
I know they got the INT anyways but there were some obvious holds on the right side of the OSU line on those last 2 plays
In Ohio Stadium Ohio commits no holding on offense. Never.
That is great.
Man Danny Hope is good at beating OSU.
It's not over yet. It's still Purdue.
Oh man Purdue is going to Purdon't
Why does no one cover Devin Smith at the end of games
Don't blow this Purdue!!!!
BS PI call...of course they throw flags. Such garbage anymore
I thought it was a pretty textbook call actually
I hate you Purdue
Purdue is awful
Looks like a good catch. Here comes the 2P try
miss it miss it miss it miss it miss it miss it
How the hell do you let that happen Purdue. God, you suck
C'mon Purdue, don't be Purdue.
This is why you're Purdue.
Fucking Purdue man.
Wow fuck you Purdue and fuck you Danny Hope and your mustache.
Purdue still sucks
I am done with that. Time to beat little brother.
Good god Purude. You suck.
About MSU's affinity with personal fouls or Illinois' ineptitude, Purdue is hands down the stupidest team in the B10. It's not even close.
This is what happens when you play not to lose. You lose.
Goddamn Purdue sucks balls. A well on to more important things
Ok, time to watch real men play football on BTN.
Purdue just personifies ineptitude.
OSU has to drop in the rankings after this sh*tfest of a performance, don't they? UM and Wisconsin f*cking destroyed Purdue and OSU squeaks by in OT at home.
OSU is in a serious race with Mississippi State for worst undefeated team....ever. Fortunately, they will lose 2 or 3 of their last four games (@Penn State, @Wisconsin and UM in C-bus) and some of the shine will come off of their season.
