    I just hope Meyer starts Guiton this week. And I'm not afraid to say I'm a little concerned about this game. OSU's D, especially backfield, is gonna get tested. They gave us a heck of a game last year in Columbus, and IMO, we could have very easily lost it.

    This Cal isn't nearly as good as least years Cal team, and that's saying something. Also, our D is much better than last years D as well.

    I would say I am concerned if Miller doesn't start, but Guiton would be the starting QB on 85% of the teams out there. He is more than capable.


    Buckeyes roll in this one 38-14.

    Guitton looking good. 21-0 with 9 min left in the first.

    Can't believe how fortunate we are to have a starting caliber QB as our backup.

    Bush league sideline hit by Shazier. I hate when I see that from teams I follow. He ought to be benched.

    If it wasn't the QB, it probably wasn't even called. I'm not even sure a cleat had hit the ground out of bounds. Looked like a knee jerk, NFL-like, oops, can't hit the QB type penalty.

    Absurd rule changes:

    helmet comes off, defender must take himself out of play. Failure to do so is a 15 yard penalty. If its an offensive guy, the play is whistled dead immediately.

    Did they really have to change a longstanding touchback rule with ball going to 20. What is the 5 yards meant to affect?

    Ongoing stupidity rule is celebration. You can prance around after a good defensive stop, or a good catch, but not after a score or change of possession. Plus, the refs are hawking the players after a score, warning them not to celebrate.

    I agree. The rule has good intentions but an offensive lineman can just intentionally knock his defender's helmet off and it's a penalty on the defense. Perhaps they need to tweak it a bit to where it's whistled dead no matter what.

    Did they really have to change a longstanding touchback rule with ball going to 20. What is the 5 yards meant to affect?
    It's another safety rule. They figure the receiving team would rather have the sure start on the 25 than risking a runback and players potentially getting hurt. It also makes the kicking team kick it to the goal line where the receiving team can't take a knee for a touchback and the kicking team can stop them inside the 25 and also allow for the possibility of a long return.

    Ongoing stupidity rule is celebration. You can prance around after a good defensive stop, or a good catch, but not after a score or change of possession. Plus, the refs are hawking the players after a score, warning them not to celebrate.
    That one's pretty silly too.

    Buckeye fans showed up this weekend. That crowd was at least 60% Ohio State. I know Cal isn't that good, but they should be embarrassed they let that happen at their home stadium.

    I believe both rules go back to last season. I know the kick off one does, I thought the helmet one did as well, though I'm not sure about the 15 yard penalty. If its a safety thing, they should absolutely stop play under the player who's helmet came off (for whatever reason) is on the sidelines. If he's healthy, let him back in the next play, but don't let him linger on the field, perhaps in confusion from recieving a blow hard enough to knock his helmet off and risk further injury.

    Gotta be impressed w/ Guiton, I wonder if his play the last 2 weeks has put him in the minds of some NFL GM as a potential non-drafted roster invitee w/ a chance as the 3rd string QB running the practice squad.

    I don't know if he has the NFL measurables in terms of height or not, but I think many teams could do worse for their 3rd string QB sitting on the practice squad (which I think by nature of the practice squad means it has to be a fairly young QB with little to no NFL experience, can't just stash a washed up 8 year vet on the practice squad as your 3rd string QB)

    Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com said it's too early to say whether or not Ohio State senior QB Kenny Guiton is a draft prospect.


    Guiton completed 21 of 32 attempts for 276 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 92 yards in a 52-34 victory over Cal on Saturday. "Next level evaluators love raw, talented players who show the physical ability and mental make-up that can be developed, especially at the quarterback position," Brugler wrote. "Last year the San Francisco 49ers drafted former South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels in the seventh round after a lackluster career at South Florida, but the Niners saw a worthwhile project. And it wouldn't be surprising if a NFL team thought the same about Guiton next May." Head coach Urban Meyer has insinuated that Guiton could see the field even when Braxton Miller returns from injury.

    Good article about how the media has "evolved" on their stance of college athletes taking extra benefits since Tatgate:

    I think the turning point in the coverage was Sandusky. That was so bad and so real, that it made it hard to drum up outrage for menial items like selling jerseys or autographs. Ohio State's national appeal/image had something to do with the coverage difference as well, but I think it that happened this year instead of 2010 it would still be covered very differently and the punishment would be less severe as well.
