    Hey I have an idea, why don't we just talk about football.

    True or false the Buckeyes will score 56+ this weekend. I say true.

    Actually...."unconfuse" me with this....How is this not suggesting that a fan of an SEC team couldn't understand?

    If you write for the ACC or root for the SEC, then you might not "get it". This story does not have any spice to it.

    I neither started the "rivalry contest" nor framed this as an in to discuss "SEC".

    Those who think I'm trolling are seeing a post that isn't all waving pom poms and are reading what they want to read rather than what was written.

    The Buckeyes don't have a "real" game until their 5th week. That's a long time to wait for a little nervous anticipation.

    I'll take the over as well. Taking your question one step further, who accounts for more TDs: Braxton Miller, or all of the other players on the field for either team combined?

    Road trip to Cal in Week 3 could be a bit of a game, just in terms of travel.

    They'll probably be favored by 21 though. But ya, I didn't account for the away game aspect.

    True. I think Ohio State puts up between 63-77.

    My prediction: Ohio State 66 Buffalo 10


    And though Cal wasn't good at all last year, they did give OSU a run for their money. They also have a new head coach in Sonny Dykes that had juggernaut offenses at LTU. They only lost to Texas A&M by two with the score being 59-57.

    With that being said they also will be starting a guy at QB with no game experience, and last season LTU probably would have blown out Cal.

    So OSU should handle Cal.

    • In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.

    "may have"... two key words? Two key words that are used to allow a story, that may not be true, to be written/told.

    The writer of the story may have stretched the truth. The writer may have an ax to grind over Urban. The writer may have an agenda to get the story sold.

    MAY HAVE... MAY NOT HAVE. See how one more word changes the story?

    I am sick of the Aaron Hernandez crap. Bill Belichick is listed as being so tough as to be ready to cut him anytime, even after handing him a gigantic contract 9 months prior to that.

    We get it, Urban Meyer and Ohio State make some of you feel insecure.

    JoJo, don't you have an SEC thread to be posting in?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Ok, We get it. There are those that hate OSU. Go find some other thread to post on. Geez!

    But I get tired of this reasoning that basically, and with extreme prejudice, singles out the Buckeye's schedule the first 3-4 weeks, and says they don't play anybody.

    Take a good, hard look around college football, because for the most part all these programs are doing it, have those "cupcake" games somewhere on their schedule.

    No, I don't like it. But why just single out OSU? Be objective. Go after them all.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Bama's schedule is IMHO unfairly easy (and I think they've traditionally had one the easiest schedules in the SEC annually). It's a flawed system for determining a champion... As the fix is in almost from preseason. At least conference championship games and a pseudo playoff place a roadblock. BTW, no one singled out OSU for starting the season with 4 cupcake games. I merely wondered how a fan could get excited to watch their first 4 games.

    Also the extreme prejudice characterization is a bit crazy especially given that you were offended by the incorrect assumption that OSU was being attacked and responded by defending their schedule by saying "everyone does it!". Apparently if someone actually had attacked OSU's strength of schedule you at least would have had to concede the point.
