Granted he was one of our own...but Gholston is on the fast track to reaching Kevin Grady levels of hype. For all the size and athleticism he brings to the DE spot he is just awful. Cant get off of blocks, you can run right at him and gets owned by any decent LT in the college game.

What exactly does Gholston do that gets him this much hype?

Wow...Sparty getting dirty within 3 mins of the game. Cant believe any kid with a good head on his shoulders would want to go to a team that is this dirty.

Braxton Miller started off the first few plays taunting the Spartans with a ideal-state Le'Veon Bell impersonation, and Jordan Hall finishes the first knife insertion with his own version of "look at our rushing game" trolling. TD Buckeyes.

Staee is in no danger of needing to expand their stadium, lol. Buckeyes having no trouble running the ball on Sparty so far. Even with a backup qb it looks like rough sledding for little brother.

Anyone else watching intently? I've never seen a quarterback throw for over 500 yards and 5 TDs (Nick Florence) only to be trumped by a 600+ yard, 8 TD performance from another quarterback (Geno Smith).

Without Worthy...that Dline is very average for Sparty. No push in the middle means single blocking everywhere else and their DE's aren't getting the job done this season.

The fact that any college QB can drop 8 TDs passing on a top-25 BCS team (after last season when that same conference produced a Heisman trophy winner with crazy numbers) should lead to some serious questions about that conference. 

And yeah, OSU is going to work MSU over if Maxwell doesn't keep throwing up ducks.

It blows my mind that teams in the Big 10 get crapped on for giving up 30 points, and then you have two teams giving up more points than their basketball teams would score against each other and it is an offensive showcase.  Neither of these defenses look even remotely able to stop anyone with a competent offense - I would pay lots of money to see UM-Baylor or UM-WVU in a bowl game.

I am assuming that part of the "Secret Plan", which they've unveiled early,  was to make Bell the oft-mentioned but hardly seen (in East Lansing, anyway) "fourth receiver". Dan Roushar trying to be the smartest man in the booth apparently.

5 games in...Maxwell still is looking like a deer in headlights. I kinda feel bad for the kid with his only help is the RB behind him. At this point you have to wonder why guys like Burbidge, Arnett aren't getting on the field because the rest of the WR crew hasn't done squat.
