How is a receiver more defenseless than  a defender that gets blind sided?  When they say they are creating rules to protect players they might as well say they are creating rules to protect offensive players.

but can anyone tell me that Baylor has more talent on offense than Michigan? Can't we borrow/steal some of their schemes and just run it for1 of the 4 quarters in a game? The other 3 quarters can be devoted to MANBALL. MOAR HB ISO!

Guys, I know the sight of PSU stirs up some raw recent memories, but let's not spend half the thread complaining about the 4thQ/OT playcalling from two weeks ago.  Let's keep this thread to just talking about the games going on now.

There's a vast difference between playing at home in front of your own fans vs. playing on the road in and extremely hostile environment where you can barely even hear yourself think. Especially when you're just a true freshman.

I think we're all seeing how that PSU game could have gone a bunch of different ways.  I remain relatively unimpressed with OSU's defense, but the offense clearly is in sync right now.

Well, I am going to assume that this is not exactly how Penn State saw that drive going - a near-disastrous fumble followed by another interception. After the loss on that first play, Penn State has 66 yards of offense to Ohio State's 173 yards at the end of the first quarter.

This is where I don't get Meyer. He's up 14-0 and he's letting Miller run it. Miller is still clearly not 100% ...for sure when he cuts and his speed is off a bit too.  There's building a player's confidence and there's risking more injury to that knee.

Dear United States:

I'm sorry but the buckeyes are obviously a bunch of PUSSIES!

They keep throwing the ball to the edge, running out of the shotgun and generally using their QB as a primary rushing threat. There is NOTHING manly about that game plan and I laugh at their girly use of speed tempo and line audibles.

Respectfully yours,

Al

Well, one of them sucked by running 27 times for 27 yards; the other gave up relatively few yards and points and actually added a defensive TD after the offense put it in some tough situations.  But sure, please go on knocking the defense to the exact same degree.

Infuriating how easily OSU is handling a PSU by taking what's given to them. We could easily have done the same thing except our OC is a stubborn turd.
