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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
