Doesn't matter if you hate the Buckeyes or not, hate to see their star player get hurt. But for now, next man up.

Up until a couple of days ago, "next man up" was the kid who didn't go to Ohio State to play school...

Who played in his place when he was injured last year?  I thought that kid gave them more options anyways.

Kenny Guiton was a senior.  Barret is no joke though, it is just a year ahead of schedule.

Cool.  I thought Miller was overrated anyways.  Seemed to be about a yard off on all his targets.  Secondary play in the B1G is atrocious so he got away with it.

Well, he was pretty terrible so they had to get a 43-year-old...who was terrible...so they went and got the QB they traded earlier in the season because he was terrible.

Damn, Miller is a really fun guy to watch. Saturdays won't be the same this season if he is indeed out for a chunk of it, but good for the guy who gets to take his spot on the roster.

OSU wasn't sniffing the championship even with Miller.  They'd get blown out in the first round even if they managed to weasel into the playoff.

Man, that was an odd game against Michigan.  I went into that one fully expecting Michigan would get blown out, or at least there was potential there.  Weird.

JohnAnnArbor: Man, that was an odd game against Michigan.  I went into that one fully expecting Michigan would get blown out, or at least there was potential there.  Weird.


I didn't think Michigan would get blown out, but I figured they'd lose due to poor QB play.

It was pretty obvious all year that Ohio State was a fraud that couldn't play any defense, as even bad teams were scoring on them.

Sparty did the Buckeyes a favor.  Losing by 5 to Clemson in the Orange Bowl is a lot better looking than losing by 60 to FSU in the BCS.
 
2014-08-19 02:02:11 PM  
PSU fan here, still will be a very tough matchup but when the game goes down in Happy Valley anything can happen. I feel a repeat of 2005 here.
 
2014-08-19 02:02:58 PM  
Feel bad for the kid, good for non-OSU CFB fans.
 
2014-08-19 02:28:40 PM  

RickyWilliams'sBong: I didn't think Michigan would get blown out, but I figured they'd lose due to poor QB play.


Poor QB play wasn't really the problem, or at least it was hard to know, because there was usually some guy annihilating said QB or chasing him around before he could even start his progressions.

As for OSU, I'd be pretty surprised if they went in to East Lansing and won with Barrett instead of Miller.  MSU is the clear favorite in the division now.  I'll believe OSU's offense is good enough with all the new parts when I see it, just like I'll believe Michigan has a chance when I can see that their offensive line can actually block a decent opponent.

No, I mean 2014 VaTech.  Their offense hasn't been worth shiat in years, but Ohio State doesn't play any defense.

And, while Beamer is well on his way to becoming Bowden 2.0, Foster usually puts together a pretty damned good defense.

First off, I was unfair.  Looking back at Virginia Tech last year shows that they were better than I remember and had a tougher schedule than I thought.  They could win that game, but I'd still expect a borderline top 25 team to beat a borderline top 50 team at home.

That said, I think you underestimate how truly awful Virginia Tech's offense truly is.  Last year, Virginia Tech was 100th in points against in FBS and scored less than twenty points against the following opponents:

Alabama
ECU
Georgia Tech
Pittsburgh
Duke
UCLA

Sure, no one is going to hold it against them that they didn't light up the scoreboard against Alabama, but only scoring nineteen points against Pitt is pretty pathetic.  Not to mention a lot of the players on that offense graduated, so the players not quite good enough to score nineteen points against Pitt.  For farks sake, Iowa scored more points against LSU than Virginia Tech did against Duke.

By the way, who is the guy that wasn't good enough to start over Logan Thomas that they're going to throw in at quarterback?

Oh, I'm not underestimating it.  I've been griping about VaTech's collapse forever, because it's left the Coastal a complete dumpster fire.

I wouldn't hold Pitt against them too much, but GaTech and ECU definitely.

Mostly awful, but also kind of schizo.  They also scored 42 (more than FSU) on Miami and 27 on UNC (same as South Carolina).

Like I said, depends on which VaTech shows up.  They could certainly win that game.

Which would be true if it was the Ohio State University System. Last time I checked though, my alma mater was The Ohio University, I had friends go to school at The University of Toledo and Kent State University.

We didn't go to school at The Ohio State Univeristy at Athens or The Ohio State University at Toledo, or the Ohio State University at Kent
