Texas lost their best player and OSU lost the biggest part of their defense. Troy Smith will have a big game and the OSU offense will probably win this one for OSU.

Yea i feel this is gonna be a blowout.......atleast a semi-blowout

PPL on TV picking Texas to win?????? lol

Guys... the Buckeyes are gonna have a defense regardless of what they lost last season.. not to mention the DL is one of the top DL's in the nation, and the DB's are very solid, and if they all stay around a few years have to potential to be the best Def. Backfiled in Buckeye history

Huh?

Texas returns 7 starters on both sides of the ball, including playmakers everywhere but QB. OSU, replacing 9 defensive starters and having to rely on the inconsistent Ginn as #1 WR make this game far from one-sided. Throw in a Texas-sized home field advantage and I like the Horns in this game.

That doesn't bother me at all. I just dislike the obnoxiousness of it all. I understand that OSU is a very good football program. There's no need to cram it down my throat every Monday when I return for work as to "how dominant" they are. Being a sports fan in general, I watch the highlights, I see the plays, even for teams I could care less about. I don't need a 4 hour "in your face" session every Monday. OSU fans just assume that you care about what the Buckeyes did that weekend. I don't care and I don't want to hear about it.

I grew up in Cincinnati. What paint said is absolutely true. Now that I live near Cleveland...I amazed at the difference. Cleveland has a HUGE Ohio State fan base. Cincy...not so much. And, interestingly, Cincy is a little closer to Columbus than Cleveland is.

Bingo, exactly how I feel. I'm to the point where I am sick and tired of hearing people who have no actual connection to the Buckeyes (other than the fact that they live in Ohio), tell me that I'm out of my mind because I don't root for OSU. Their reasoning is that because I live in Ohio I should automatically eat, sleep, and breath OSU football. Sorry, but that's not how things go. I enjoy college football on the whole and don't have any strong ties to any program outside of my Miami Redhawks (alumni).

I much prefer college football to the NFL. The only time we get any of that is on Saturdays or after the Cowboys report when we get to hear the latest smug wisecrack from Mack Brown. :bang:

From my limited experiences in Cincinnati in football season, it seems to me as if Ohio State barely exists. Obviously for me personally that is a negative, being an alum and fan and all. :) Honestly it did surprise me at first as I came from a small rural NW Ohio community and pretty much everyone there roots fervently for the Buckeyes. I kinda thought all Ohio was like that just based on my own limited (at the time) experiences. Then of course I attended Ohio State, only further fostering my limited view. Now, living in a "border town" with tsun, I see it a bit differently. However, I still am a shameless follower of my "home team" but I also understand everyone has their own favorites.

I dig OSU sports about as much as anyone, but would never cram it down anyone's throat who didn't care (besides wearing my school colors, etc).

We're gonna have a party for this one, just as we did last year. Hopefully the game will go a little differently.

08-17-2006, 03:12 PM
I'm not saying that you can't root for OSU, I'm just saying there are too many people out there (a bunch of my friends) that claim OSU as their favorite team simply b/c they win and they are from Ohio. Instead of claiming the bearcats the true Cincinnati college football team as their own. But b/c the cats aren't necessarily a winning program they choose OSU.

With all the talk about the defense replacing 9 starters and being the weak link to the team I think we are overlooking one big problem. We have been spoiled the last 4 years with excellent placekickers. I'm more nervous about an untested kicker playing in his first real game (northen illinois @home don't count) on the road in front of a sea of orange with a chance to win the game resting on his foot than I am about a freakishly athletic and talented defensive backfield. But I am glad that OSU has to worry about a kicker who may try one or two kicks to Texas who has to worry about an untested QB who has to handle the ball about 50 times that much. I think OSU wins this game going away, but the placekicking might be something they have to worry about come late in the season in a close, cold game where points are hard to come by.

Now, now RL, I would imagine your co-workers know that you're a Michigan fan and that may have a little something to do with the excess of barking and woofing.

However, I'm an OSU grad and an OSU fan and there a lot of OSU fans that I'm ashamed of (come to think of it, I could say the same thing for the Reds). Most sports discussions these days are who can yell the loudest, bray when they're winning, and be the most threatening which isn't my style.

I agree, Roy. There are some absolutely horrible Buckeye fans out there, but I guess that just goes with the territory of having any kind of fanbase. I still remember sitting near someone at a game when the oft-maligned Steve Bellisari was the QB. This guy was just on him mercilessly (and not that it matters to me, but this was way before his infamous drinking incident) and it just totally ruined the game experience for me. My wife had to "verbally restrain" me a few times because I had had it up to here with the guy. I can only imagine how he would be towards the other team and their fans if this is how he treated one of his own. I honestly could not figure out why he came to the game or even bought an Ohio State shirt.

Aha! He left out that very important fact. ;) I'd assume that any Buckeye fan living and working in that state up north would have a very tough row to hoe as well...especially during the dreadful "Cooper Era".

Any team that has a long history of success, like OSU football, is going to attract a certain segment of fans who are going to be blowhards. They'll thump their chest and generally tie the success of the team to their own self-esteem. If that particular team was not successful, these types would not be fans of that team.

Less than one week until gametime.

Predictions? After watching the games yesterday, I think OSU will have their hands full. I'm thinking this will be an offensive shootout with OSU prevailing although it could go to Texas just as well with the OSU kicking game not being as good as years past.

Anyone going to the game?

I think (fingers crossed) I will be getting tickets this week for the game. If my friend is on the active roster for the game he gets two tickets and will give them to me. He played yesterday so here's hoping he has a good week at practice. My last day in Phoenix for the summer is Friday so if we get tickets we will have to start driving after work as it's about a 14 hr drive (plus time change) to Austin. I'm so pumped to find out I could possibly be going to the game.

Texas' Brown won't play vs. Ohio St. following arrest
ESPN.com news services

Texas cornerback Tarell Brown, who was arrested and charged early Monday with misdemeanor drug and weapon charges, will not play in the No. 2 Longhorns' game this Saturday against top-ranked Ohio State, coach Mack Brown announced Tuesday.

Tyrell Gatewood, a backup junior linebacker and special teams player who was also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, will not play either, Brown said.

Brown's absence represents a huge blow to a defensive unit considered the Longhorns' strength this season. Brown was likely to draw the assignment of covering Buckeye wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., one of Ohio State's top playmakers.

The Longhorns could start junior Brandon Foster or sophomore Ryan Palmer. Foster has played in 22 games and Palmer in 10 last season. Neither has been a starter.

Brown was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon, a loaded 9 mm handgun, a Class A misdemeanor, and possession of under 2 ounces of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor.

Gatewood and former Texas linebacker Aaron Harris were charged with the same drug misdemeanor.

The attorney for Brown and Gatewood said Monday that Gatewood legally purchased the gun earlier this year and that neither of them smoked the marijuana found in the car.

The gun charge carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $4,000 fine. The drug charge carries a maximum of 180 days in a jail and a $2,000 fine.

Brown and Gatewood were released on personal recognizance bond Monday afternoon and Harris was released later in the day.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Travis County deputies, the three were in a car Harris was driving on Interstate 35 about 2:50 a.m. A deputy pulled the group over after watching the car weave erratically and nearly strike another car.

According to the report, Harris got out of the car when pulled over and Brown and Gatewood were asleep. Harris passed a field sobriety test but told the deputy he had been smoking marijuana and there was "some" in the car.

When deputies approached the vehicle they saw Brown, who was sitting in the back seat asleep, with his hand on a gun in his lap.

Under state law, a person commits an offense if he intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his person a handgun, illegal knife, or club.

The officers also reported finding a marijuana "blunt" under the front seat and charged all three with possession. Only Brown was charged with a weapons violation.

Attorney Jamie Balagia said Gatewood bought the gun at a store and left it in the car after going to a shooting range a couple weeks earlier.

Balagia said Brown picked up the gun only after it slid out from under the front seat and intended to bring it inside when the players got home.

"It was in his lap but he was not intentionally violating the law," Balagia said. "Tarell does nothing to suggest he's doing anything illegal or intentionally violating the law. I think what we have is a misunderstanding."

Balagia also said Brown and Gatewood underwent urine tests at school Monday to prove they didn't smoke the marijuana.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

If Texas loses a close game, they'll point to this as the reason why. The Buckeyes need to win big to shut that door and shut up those whiners.

Mack will probably use this as part of the inspiration to get his team worked up for the game. It could be foolhardy to get too excited about this as the Longhorns have most of the week to practice the backups and work around it.

Sure. We all know that non-smokers hang out with smokers at 3:00 am. Especially when no one was drinking. Hmmmmm... wonder what these college age guys were doing at 3:00 am? No bars s/b open... oh wait, they weren't drinking anyway. And we all know that two non-smokers always ride in a car with one smoker who was toking on a blunt while driving the car. I believe it... anyone got the Brooklyn Bridge for sale? I feel like buying it this month.

As a believer I think these two innocent guys should take a urine test. Prove to us, the NCAA and college football fans that you are definitely innocent. Your attorney says you are innocent, so test. There should be nothing to hide. You aren't potheads. Prove it and shut up those who will think you and your attorney are liars.

Anymore, not shocked. Just that they need to be held accountable when it happens.

The pot is no big deal to me; but the weapons?? Simply senseless.

Well, let's see...

(1) It is against the law.
(2) It is against NCAA rules.
(3) People driving an automobile while under the influence of drugs can lead to the death of innocent people. I think this is illegal too.
(4) People doing drugs and playing around with guns is a lethal mix.
(5) They, as members of the Texas football team, represent their university. Now they have given their team and university a black-eye.

I guess I could go on. But if the above 5 aren't convincing enough, then why waste my time? I must state that it is a pretty big deal. If it is a college student caught smoking dope in his/her dorm room, then I agree with you. But is wasn't. It was 3 Texas football players caught in a moving auto.... right before the biggest game of the year for them. It is a big deal. Hence, the reason it is being discussed on RedsZone.

I think he vastly underestimates Wolfe. Wolfe has put up those numbers against any team they have played. Good big 10 teams included.

He also ignored the edge holding that occured all game in his "fighting through the blocks" comments. Those same holds that were called late in the game were happening all day.

Ok if we want to turn this into a debate about pot I would be more than happy to take it over to the other forum.

WOW! What a convincing statement by OSU. I knew they'd struggle against the run, but I didn't realize they'd tackle so poorly. The good news is they won't face an O-Line as good as Texas' the rest of the season.

Troy Smith sure looked poised tonight. And I went on record a couple of months ago as saying I thought Gonzalez was going to have a huge year. He was under-rated last year and I think he's going to be a huge asset for the Bucks this year. If they can get by Iowa, they *should* go into Michigan undefeated. Michigan is going to have a good running game this year, so it's no gurantee they'll beat them.

This could be a fun season for Buckeye fans. Just pray they don't have a let down game. The only teams other than Michigan even capable of playing with them are Penn State, Iowa, and MAYBE Michigan State if Drew Stanton is playing. They got both MSU and Iowa on the road. If they play even close to their capabilities, they should win each of those games easily, although Drew Tate and Drew Stanton scare me a little. Colt McCoy was terrible, but those two guys can play and put up some numbers.

Terrible? A litte exaggeration (especially from a Pac-10 fan)? Iowa, with Drew Tate are an excellent team. Michigan might not be world beaters this year, but they will be tough for anyone to beat. Michigan State has one of the better offenses in the country and if Penn State's QB can start to mature this year, they are going to be VERY good. They have tons of talent. I know you've mentioned how much you don't like the Big 10 before, but to say the entire league except OSU is terrible, is purely hyperbole.

Northwestern got their butt kicked by New Hampshire. Michigan State struggled with Idaho and Eastern Michigan (first half). Penn State lost by 24 points yesterday. Iowa barely beat a terrible Syracuse team. Indians barely beat Ball freakin' State by one point. Illinois may be the worst team in college football. Minnesota got their butts kicked by one of those bad Pac-10 teams everyone wants to talk about. Purdue had to go into OT to beat Miami (OH). I'm sorry, but I would have to say the Big-10 has looked subpar to this point. But then again, no conferance is really sticking out so far.

MWM
09-10-2006, 12:58 PM
Yeah, and Florida State struggled with Troy. Good teams struggle with the cupcakes for a half all the time. Calling out MSU against Idaho is an example. Penn State lost to ND in their home opener, and they're probably the second best team in the country (much better than Tennessee). That team has loads of talent, but played horribly yesterday. If they get any improvement from they're QB, they will be good. Heck, if they played in the PAC-10, their only loss would be to USC. Talk about a horrible conference.

And Iowa didn't have Drew Tate, but you knew that. With him in the game they're a top 10 team. And Michigan has one of the best running backs in the country and a really good defense. The Big 10 has 4 legitimately good teams. That's 3 more than your PAC-10. The only conference that might be better is the SEC and maybe the ACC. OSU has to go into MSU and Iowa. That will be a tough test for anyone.

BTW, the ACC has looked pretty bad early on.

09-10-2006, 01:15 PM
Other than USC, I'll grant you UCLA. I think they could be real good becaue I think Ben Olsen is going to be an absolute stud. I think he wins the Heisman next year.

But Oregon, UCLA, and Cal I don't think will be worth much this season. Of the major conferences, the only one weaker than the Pac-10 is the Big 12, IMO. Actually, I think it's about time to stop considering the Big-12 a major conference (yes, I know one of theirs won the NC last year). Outside of Texas and Oklahoma, that conference is embarassing. There's a reason why they have an undefeated team every single year. Heck, I'll take the Mountain West over the Big-12 if you line them up top to bottom.

OnBaseMachine
09-10-2006, 01:19 PM
I'll take Oregon over UCLA, and IMO, Rudy Carpenter (ASU QB) is much better than Ben Olson. Carpenter, IIRC, led the nation is QB effieciency last year. He's the real deal.

Oregon has Oklahoma at home this Saturday. That should tell us how good Oregon is.

Ben Olsen will be the best QB in the country next year (and one of the best THIS year). Just curiou how much you know about Olson? He was the best high school QB in the country when he first came out and now he's 22 years old and only a sophomore I believe. At the time he was recruited, he was the concensus #1 overall player in the country and now he's older and smarter (once upon a time I used to follow high school football recruiting very closely). He's going to be a #1 draft pick. You heard it here first.

I follow recruiting very very closely, so I know about Olson. He commited to BYU out of high school and went on a church mission for two years, and then after coming back he decided he no longer wanted to play for BYU. IIRC, he chose UCLA over CAL (second choice) and practically the whole country. I understand how great his potential is, but you're forgetting who his coach is. Karl Dorrell is a bad coach, and IMO, Olson won't realize his full potential under Dorrell.

He would win two Heisman's if he had attended Cal and played under QB guru Jeff Tedford.

One year can be a HUGE difference in the college game. Like the NCAA basketball tourney, I never judge a conference based on postseason play.

Cal has a very talented team, however, their QB is very young and had never played in an atmosphere like that. I expected them to get beat like they did.

Yep, Cal will be fine once they get back to the Pac-10 schedule. And you're talking about the 2nd best Pac-10 team against one of the weaker Big 10 schools and using that to compare conferences. Dude, it's Minnesota. That's weak.

And you're having to reach clear back to 2003 to bring up the Michigan-Oregon game when Oregon won AT HOME (in one of the tougher environments to play in) by a whopping 4 points. The fact that you're brining up Minnesota and Northwestern and having to reach back 3 years for MIchigan - Oregon IN OREGON says a lot about the merits of the conferences. If it weren't for USC, that conference would be on par with the MAC.

2004 was a down year for Ohio State, Iowa throttled them at home. In what is now seen as the grow up game for Ohio State's young pups. Troy Smith took the helm then, and things have been very different since. Iowa was not a very good team. The year picked Iowa after they had been throttled by Michigan earlier. By the end of the year, they were the third best team in the conference behind Michigan and Ohio State. Michigan lost a classic to Texas, and OSU blasted OKlahoma State, in bowl games.

Cal's a very dangerous blah, blah, blah. They haven't done anything. West Virginia would stop them, and they'd struggle greatly in the Big Ten.

I'm not going to make the argument that the Big Ten's great top to bottom, because it's not, but compare the top 3 teams year in and year out and the PAC 10 comes up short just about every time. The physicality of Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, and Wisconsin (this is a rebuilding year for them) would wear down any PAC 10 team not named USC. It would be resounding victory 9 times out of ten.

Fan violence mars Ohio State's big win over Texas

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- An Ohio State University student accused of driving his car into three people, injuring them slightly, was among several people arrested during a raucous celebration of the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes' win over No. 2 Texas.

There were about 40 fires reported, with couches and mattresses set ablaze, in student neighborhoods Saturday night, said Columbus police Sgt. David Howson, whose department arrested about 17 people, five of them on arson charges. A trash bin also was set on fire, burning two nearby cars, he said.

Battalion Fire Chief Kevin O'Connor said he was treated for bumps and bruises after he and two others were struck by a car that came through a temporary command post set up in the driveway of a student union building.

The two others, Ohio State assistant vice president for student affairs Barbara Rich and her husband, were treated early Sunday at Ohio State University Medical Center for minor injuries.

The driver of the car, George Karadimas, 22, a student at the school, has been charged with vehicular assault, said Ohio State Assistant Chief Rick Amweg. He declined to comment on whether alcohol was involved.

Karadimas was being held in a Franklin County jail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning for an arraignment, said sheriff's deputy Travis Carter.

Most students haven't returned to campus because fall classes don't start until Sept. 20, Howson said. Still, police concentrated their patrols on the campus area last night.

"This happens on big games, so we were prepared for it," Howson said.

The 24-7 victory kept the Buckeyes (2-0) in perfect position for a run to a college football national title. Texas, which saw its 21-game winning streak snapped, is the defending national champion.

Not that it matters, but I did an analysis on Super Bowl winning players and the number of SB rings by colleges winning players attended. It is updated through PITT's win earlier this year. Some individual players have more than one ring...

Big Ten: 235 rings.
PAC-10: 247 rings.

USC: 55 rings (#1 all colleges)
Penn St: 46 rings (#3)
UCLA: 43 rings (#4)
Mich: 37 rings (#7)
Mich. St.: 31 rings (tied #10 w/ FlorSt & BYU)
OSU: 30 rings (#13)
Wash: 28 rings (#17)
Purdue: 27 rings (#18)
Stanford: 26 rings (tied #19 w/ Okla)


In case you care :) :
UCincinnati: 9 rings (7 diff. guys, last-Andre Frazier, '05 Steelers)
Miami(OH): 2 rings (Ron Carpenter & Ben)
OhioU: 0 rings!
BGSU: 2 rings (Phil Villapiano & Charlie Williams)
Cent. St (OH): 3 rings (all won by Erik Williams, Dallas OT)
OSU: First-Matt Snell ('68, Jets) ; Last-Mike Vrabel ('04 Pats)
EastKent: 2 rings (Myron Guyton & Danny Copeland)
Kentucky: 11 rings (last-Marty Moore, '01 Pats)
Indiana: 8 rings (last-Antwaan Randle-El, '05 Steelers)

Good post, but the Pac-10 sucks, remember?

I agree that that sort of "celebration" (if that is what they truly are trying to do) is completely stupid, juvenile, and idiotic behavior. Just know that there are a bunch of great (in your words "classy") Buckeye fans also.
