Was reading today where Miami players from the '02 team were trying to use revenge as a motivator for the current team. Really silly if you ask me. Sort of like asking the current Bengals to get fired up for a game with the Niners because they beat us in the SB 20 and 30 years ago.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
It will be interesting to see how Brian Rolle plays. He grew up a Miami fan but didn't get an offer from them. His cousin Antrelle played for the Canes when Ohio State beat them in 2003.
"There was no doubt in my mind," he said. "My sophomore to senior year, I just knew I was going to play at Miami. But I didn't get that offer I wanted."
Interesting I went back and looked at his profile on Scout. He was a 4 star LB from Immokalee and had offers from some top notch schools, OSU, LSU, UF, etc. Surprised that he didn't get an offer from Miami. I wonder if this had to do anything with the house cleaning Randy Shannon undertook. But then again I have never heard anything bad about Rolle.
Really nice win over Miami for the Buckeyes today! Go Bucks!!!
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
If the Buckeyes can learn how to cover a kick they are going to be real dangerous, because that was the only true weak spot today.
I'm very happy with the win today, but nothing is more frustrating than giving up two touchdowns on kick returns. This game shouldn't have been close, but it was still a good win. Go Bucks!
Bucks looked good against Miami.The couple INTs UM dropped concerns me more then the returns given up for TDs.Tressel can fix the return problem as it has been something his teams have always done well.It's up to TP to not throw picks and that worries me a bit.I'll try to remember how accurate he was against Marshal and hope it was just the rain that caused the accuracy problems today.Don't get me wrong, Pryor has looked good so far this year but but should've had a few picks and was less then efficient today despite over 300 yards of total offense.
The kick returns did happen. Ohio State did allow them. They were fair and square and good plays by Miami. The game should have been close because Miami made enough plays to keep it close.
That kind of talk is stuff you'd hear from the "swagger." Miami has tremendous athletes with good lines on both sides of the ball. I think Ohio State was a better team, but let's not take credit away from the Hurricanes for making big plays on special teams. It takes two to tango.
"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
The Bucks have given up 31 points so far, and 21 of them were special team breakdowns. That has to be addressed. They could have really opened this game up and hurt the Canes bad if their ST play hadn't let them back into the game. But my hats off to the Canes return guys. Solid runs no doubt.
I don't know about anyone else, but that was a definite and flagrant hold on Heyward in the 1st half. I came up off the couch when they picked that flag up. It kept that Cane drive going where they got the FG.
Overall - Pryor looked good. I think he did, at times, make some bad decisions with the ball, tried to force it a few times, and was lucky he didn't have an INT. Still a little concerned with their running game, other then Pryor, when it comes to the RBs, but it's still early.
I thought going in that the key to the whole game was going to be how our O-line was going to perform vs the Cane's LB's. I thought our line did admirably.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
