    PSU defense is a really good unit, that's part of what is so impressive about how the Buckeyes played. The Lions played them about as good as they could have hoped and still were outmatched.

    Good games still to be played, but wow OSU looks tough.

    At this point even if Georgia loses and drops to 11-2 they should stay ahead of 10-2 Alabama who didn’t compete for the conference title.

    And Utah isn’t looking good first half but if they pull through they’ll move ahead of Alabama.

    If y’all do advance it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see you smoke Alabama in the first four. Unless I’m lucky enough to see an Auburn win today. But I’m not too optimistic about it.

    That game was a lot closer than I thought it would be.

    Let's go Penn State!

    This is a game I have been looking forward to all season. 12 Eastern start today if anyone wants to catch a great matchup.

    The Buckeyes are putting quite a few good players in the draft this year. Watching pro day right now to see how Cardale looks.

    Coach Urban Meyer just finished his 4th season with the Buckeyes, and in that span he's 50-4! Not bad at all.

    Right. I mean if Wisconsins offense can score 17 on Alabama there is no reason Ohio st. can't score in the 20's. I just don't necessarily believe that 1 night in January defines the state of both football programs.

    I just remember for a month hearing about how elite Bama was compared to all other football programs and nobody could beat them. Especially not Ohio st who lost to Va tech. Now we are going to hear all year this year how Ohio st. is unbeatable with crazy depth. Except Bama's depth can match anyone in the country.

    Again don't get me wrong. In a matchup I would root for you guys same as last year. I just wasn't nearly as impressed with the defending champs as the team wanting revenge. I also wouldn't bet against Saban in a rematch. He has already done it to Meyer once before.

    Lost a 7 point game to Florida in the SEC title game only to trounce him the following year.

    That said Elways comment wasn't exactly wrong that when healthy Ohio st can beat anybody. They certainly can. I just think Alabama has a great shot to punch anyone in the mouth too.

    Despite what happened in January I'll still take Alabama to beat Ohio st any day of the week. History favors my opinion and one bad performance in January doesn't change that opinion.

    This Alabama team is definitely noticeably stronger than last year and by December the QB play will be better than last year.

    Personally I prefer Ohio st to win of the two. But I think media is massively overhyping the talent of Ohio st this year. Gee I guess I sound like the pot calling the kettle black after how many years people said media overhyped SEC.

    Still though Saban has a good record against Meyer. And one win doesn't automatically throw Meyer to the tops of the charts.

    I do think Ohio st has a much easier road to the playoff and will be there again. So we will likely find out. But I still think Alabama looked much more impressive Saturday than Ohio st did Monday. But I'll reserve judgement and credit you guys with missing some key players.

    That's an interesting comparison. Ohio State football history would have been so different if they had hired Sid Gillman instead. He was available.

    Since the current Ohio State football teams remind me of the Oklahoma Sooners of the Seventies and Eighties, maybe Barry Switzer would be more my comparison. As a person, I think Urban Meyer reminds me more of Ara Parseghian.

    Never was much of a Woody Hayes fan. His math didn't add up: 3 + 3 + 3 = 9, Punt
    lol. That's the first time I've ever heard that. I guess that's what the cloud of dust is for. To blind the opponent, and go for it on 4th and 1.
