|2 weeks 3 days ago||Nope||
Nothing changes. We'll be 8-4, possibly 7-5. The defense will be great if there's no big injuries, but the offense loses two of its best players and sputters. I don't think it's feasible having a great year with the youth we'll have on the offensive side of the ball. But, if we go 8-4 that's a step up from this season. Right?

We all share his concerns, but he seems pretty intense lately. Maybe Brian should fly to Florida for a week for some much needed rest and relaxation in early January!

Those guys fought harder than I've ever seen a team fight. It's too bad they couldn't come away with a win.

So I guess the moral of the story is we need an identity once and for all. Well, looks like it's going to be MANBALL because I don't think Hoke would allow a spread type offense.

Brian believes as I believe. We're going to get shut out.

When we used to win it. Is it still a rivalry if we lose this weekend? That would make only 1 win in 10 meetings!

He doesn't seem very excited. I guess no one believes they can pull this one off, not even the person who is responsible for making it happen.

Try your best to be the first reply because statistically they are the most read and I base that information off of nothing.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||No because the players think||
No because the players think they're the ones getting booed and the coaching staff is oblivious to it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Throw everything including||
Throw everything including the kitchen sink at em. I wouldn't run the ball until the 2nd half. Have a trick play ready for every other down. Do an onside kick on every chance during the first and third quarters. Execute option plays on every other odd possession and under center plays on the even possessions except for 4 and shorts, in which I'd run a double pitch option similar to what Nebraska did to us in 2011.
In the second half, only play hurry up offense. Get the play off within 20 seconds with only quick throws, screens, and jet sweeps as the play calls. Also, go for two on every touchdown in the second half.
That would be my game strategy if I were Al Borges this week.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The margin is going to be a||
The margin is going to be a lot more than 13. Remember, Urban is trying to win style points and will go for two every time if he thinks it help him get into the BCS championship game. I'm predicting 45-10 OSU.

What Gardner is feeling I think the professionals call that PTSD.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Are you tracking the "fire||
Are you tracking the "fire Borges" or "fire Hoke" as well? I think I saw more of those yesterday then I remember seeing "fire RR". Would be interesting to compare all three phrases numerically.

At the very least it'll be two scores, should really be three, but it's a home game and a rivary.

Well beating Ohio would definitely make everything feel much better.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Someone needs to tell him||
Someone needs to tell him that loss wasn't on him. I think he's better than what the stats give him credit for. Fergodsakes he's out there doing the best he can even without the guidance of a QB coach. He deserves more credit than we give him.

Yes I agree it would be theraputic. Did I spell that right?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||After looking at the||
After looking at the schedule, it's possible for another 7-5 season if no real progress is made on offense. Man that is a brutal road game schedule.

Try alcohol. It's better at numbing the pain.

Well, Fire Borges threads are still being shut down on a consistent basis. I imagine once the owners of this site start to give in to those type of posts then we'll be looking at a true turning point in fan apathy.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Well this ought to make you||
Well this ought to make you feel worse:
OSU total offense - 536.9 PG, we have 383.3 PG
OSU rushing - 315.1 PG, we have 135.7 which is higher than I though it would be
OSU 49.4 PPG, we have 34.3 which is still higher than I'd thought
Hyde is averaging 7.9 yds per carry, Fitz is averaging 3.5
Ohio has 6 receivers with more than 15 receptions, we have only 2 with more than 12.
I don't think that's counting today, so it may actually be worse. And for those of you that want to point to our defense, we haven't faced an offense this productive all season.
Does anybody believe in miracles?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Don't I know it||
I've been saying it for the past few weeks now. I think next weekend is going to be a whole new low for us. I think OSU is going to put 40 or more on us and we'll be lucky to sniff the red zone. If you look at the actual match ups from a stats standpoint, man this one is going to be all kinds of ugly.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I'm actually pretty worried||
I'm actually pretty worried about next week. I really think that we could be looking down the wrong end of a shutout next week. I think this game just justifies all the worries. Whether play calling or shitty players, we just plan suck something aweful on offense and have no idea how to uh, well be an offense. It's not something that'll be fixed over a couple of weeks of bowl prep. Michigan fans...It's going to be a long offseason!!!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Borges O. It actually takes||
Borges O. It actually takes some talent to not do anything whatsoever with lots of talent. I'm impressed the level of incompetence by this man. He hasn't had a plan since ND and he doesn't seem to be interested in winning games. I'm sure he'll get right to work on a game plan that features one of our first shutouts in a long time next week against a team that won't have to do much to bitch slap us for 60 minutes.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||For us to score 11 points||
For us to score 11 points we'd need either a safety or a two-point conversion. Why wasn't that a feature of the opportunity to look stupid? I think it's justifiable.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||A low scoring boring affair||
A low scoring boring affair in which Mattison does a good job holding Iowa to almost nothing and Borges outsmarts himself into unproductive offensive oblivion. 10-9 Iowa.

Is she a blue chip recruit or part of the 3 star mafia?
