@Penn State is the only game where I wouldn't be surprised if Ohio lost(not including us).  They are likely to finish 10-2 at the worst, but they aren't even that good of a football team.

Looks like our division should be decided during the stretch of Oct 20-Nov 3 when UM-MSU-UN-L play their round robin. Win both of those games and we are 2 up on one team and 3 up on the other while holding pretty much all of the tie breakers.

The OSU game still scares me. Almost a full year in the system, the OC seems to know how to use a mobile QB, and the defense seems good at intercepting poor throws.

Most of the points given up in the last 3 games was because of TO's by our Offense, this staff is doing a great job of teaching these young guys on our team. Just think how good our D will be with more experience, next year our D is gonna be lights out.

Really loved the way Rawls ran, I hope he gets more time, Fitz looks very average this year.I was very happy with the gameplan today, keep it simple Coach Al, don't ask Denard to be Tom Brady, ask him to be Denard.

Hey y'all. Missed the game today, but wanted to catch the replay on BTN2go; I can't get it to let me log into my directv account through BTN. I can through directv's website, but when I login to the app it just keeps kicking me back out to select my provider. I just wanna watch me some damn footbaw after wandering aimlessly though parade homes a WHOLE WEEK past wife day and I can't get it to work. Someone help me.

LOL @ the Nessler saying ohio will be in the "top-10" tomorrow.

Maybe in the AP, which is a novelty poll. Doesn't do squat for you except put a pretty little number next to your name.

The coaches poll is what matters. It's 1/3 of the BCS. Why isn't ohio ranked in that poll, Brad?

NO B1G team deserves to be in the top 10.  I'm honestly kind of pissed about how much love Neb and Ohio are getting.  Shit, Neb gave up a school record to UCL-freaking-A on defense before kneel downs, and Ohio was LAST in the conference befere the MSU in total D (even behind UCL-freaking-A).  Hell, they might be last again after this game.  And because thier records are good they're automatically top 10??  Sometimes people piss me off and I don't think they are deserving of any relevent thought.

Yes Mr. Commentator.  Let's talk about John Simon's motor.  And how it contributed to over 400 yards of offense, SO FAR IN ONLY HALF WAY THROUGH THE FOURTH QUARTER,  and 30 something points.  God, they would be losing this game if Neb even had a semblance of a defense.

It's looking like this season is setting up to have more lamenting and gnashing of teeth at the end than ever before.  A lot of teams a step below Bama with one and two losses out there.  Oregon has the potential to lose one with Stanford and USC left and WVU is gonna have a tough road being unfamiliar with everyone on their schedule.  Really we might as well just give the trophy to Bama now though.  Nobody has even a fighting chance the way everyone has looked so far in comparison.

Good God am I smarter than the CFB analysts and pundits.  FSU to the MNCG this, easy ACC schedule that.  I knew all along they'd mess it up.  They might be a good team, overall, but damn did these idiots really think they'd go undefeated??  Overrated is the notion, once again, in Tallahassee.

Note: Glad I noticed I was on 666 posts for most of the evening...Where were you all at on that one!!?!

Good point on most everyboyd always forgetting (subconsiously) that we're watching and entertaining ourselves with 18-22 year olds.  It's just kind of funny, to me, when it seems the same programs seem to revel in underachieveing and getting hyped to always let down, and no one seems to notice the "pattern".
