Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
FYI...Posey is back for OSU...
I feel like Penn St. could easily win this actually...I picked the Buckeyes because I think PSU is the most overrated team in the country. But PSU is playing for a B1G championship...OSU's season comes down to one game, Michigan. They're going to have a new head coach, they're not going to a great bowl, it's all about Michigan at this point.
That you could cause Chip Kelly to kill himself if you made him to watch this entire game.
TOUCHDOWN PENN STATE! Beat them Buckeyes up!
PSU runnin on OSU
wow, this is fantastic. Hopefully crazy rumors regarding their future coaching staff completely destabalizes this Ohio team and we put up 60 on them.
OMG how great would it be if OSU comes into the big house next week with only 6 wins? I'm thinking somewhere between "Very" and "OMG YES PLEASE". Leaning toward the latter.
and after they lose their bowl game, they'll have a losing season.
Miller has seemingly thrown more already than he has all season.
Proposal amend thread title to "Ohio vs. PSU"...just for some consistency...can I get a second?
No?....Good. Motion carried. Do your thing Mr. Yost
They watched us dismantle Nebraska and KNOW they are next regardless of what happens to them this day...
NC State and USF in a tie for ugliest uniforms of the day.
Not worthy of a sole post, but for us diehards hanging in there till Cal-Stanford, he's going to be talking to ESPN radio folks re Michigan's at-large BCS birth chances....
How did we miss on Hankins?
the best that McGloving has played all year
I hope Penn State leaves Ohio with the confidence of a pimply 14-year-old going into next week.
Sad, Eastern turns it over four times and loses 28-22. Need to pull off a huge upset over Northern Illinois to have a winning record and to become bowl eligible. Still a hell of a year for them, but was hoping they could win today.
BS on that 3rd and 11 - Posey was given a gift...
after methodical drive on the ground...Penn State up 17-7 in the second
17-7 ohio D having some problems stopping the run. Dare I say meet Fitz #28 and Denard "I run with passion" Robinson.
PSU looks pretty good on both sides of the ball...I think Ohio will make it closer by the fourth quarter
NC state defense is just making plays right Now....Touchdown NC state what a first half
Braxton Miller might be able to make it as a RB in college
as well as we did this week, I'm not scared by Ohio's makeshift option game. They do it because they have to. Nebraska does it because they're good at it.
I hope Penn state wins. Whenever I hear Ohio's band play their God awful songs I just want to poke my ear drums out.
NC state gets another turnover recover a fumble... Kick a field goal 17- 3
PSU is kinda tearing up OSU's defense right now on the ground. It makes me feel good about our chances. We will need to play well on the edges like we did against Nebraska to contain Miller. Getting Posey back is big for OSU and he made a hell of a one handed grab earlier in the game.
Touchdown again!! After a huge punt return
Houston-SMU combine for 13 first-half points. Penn State-Ohio State combine for 34. Bizarre...NC state up 27-3
Ohio is struggling BIG TIME with PSU's zone-read and wildcat even thought they're obvious runs when the RBs are in there at QB.
Can help but think their struggles play to our advantage next week.
Agreed. Unfortunately it also gives them a jump start on their preparation--it's easier to correct errors you've already made in a game.
my earlier pillow fight comment. This is a pretty entertaining game. Ohio stuffs Penn State 4 times at the goal line. 20-14 PSU leads with 3:30 left in the 3rd.
Poor decision, going for it on 4th.
That was the right call, just like it was when Hoke made the same call at I believe Iowa.
How did PSU beat anyone this year?
Watchin OSU and Boom Herron's running style (start inside, bump it outside), I feel like Jake is going to need to be very disciplined next weekend.
The "Leaders" are a lot worse than the "Legends" this year. Not that confident in Wisky beating the Spartans after they bumbled around again today. The two best teams in the Big Ten might be in the State of Michigan. And that might be down to home and road.
Martinez? Couldn't run on us.
Scheelhaaaeouse? Couldn't run on us.
Miller? What the hell else can he do?
Braxton Miller has an elusiveness those other two don't have. Not to be negative, I think playing against those two has only helped us in regards to Miller. But IMHO, he'll be more of a challenge.
Miller gets the bulk of his running yardage off of passing plays.
85% of the time they lined up in the pistol, they ran the option. A couple of times they faked the option and Miller passed from it.
Miller's scrambling ability is what kills you. Not designed running plays.
Great seeing Fickel yell "fuck!" when they didn't convert there.
Broadcast just panned to a female OSU fan crying in the stands. Ahhhh, this day just gets better and better.
After the Corey Brown drop, they showed a girl crying before commercial break.
I turned to my (OSU fan) girlfriend and asked "IS THIS WHO YOU WANT REPRESENTING YOU!?"
At least face-palm guy is funny...
If Michigan beats ohio, that will most likely send ohio to the pizza bowl in downtown Detroit. LOL.
Buckeyes lose again. AWESOME.
I never get tired of seeing ohio lose
