Ohio State vs. Texas
 
This game deserves it's own thread. I think the winner will ceratinly get the early jump in the polls and should move to #2 (In Texas' case, remove any doubt that they deserve their #2 ranking), but TX is going to have their hands full. Here are some stats surrounding the game.

OSU is 6-0 under the lights in the shoe, 25-8 at night overall.
All-time records are equally impressive: OSU 766-298-53, TX 788-310-33
OSU has 7 Nat'l Championships, TX has 3.
Bucks are 27-3-1 vs. the Big 12.

This is going to be a HUGE game and could possibly be the deciding factor on who plays in the National Championship game.

Buckeyes win a good one.

vince wins the game on his own cause he's simply unstoppable,http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y28...vinceyoung.gif hahahahaha. i don't know i'm nervous about this game, hopefully our crack headed wrs can step up, cause sweed drops some of the easiest passes in the world. it's going to be a great game, we got fast as hell backs and of course vince young, but other then that i have no idea. and i know nothing about ohio state so i don't know how the match ups are going to be.

OSU is putting the fastest team on the field they have EVER had, and Vince Young is cancelled out as an advantage because the Buckeyes have exactly the same type of player at QB in Troy Smith. The advantages I see going to TX are only OL and RB. DL is a wash, LB is definitely OSU, secondary is a wash, QB is a wash, WR's definitely favor OSU, as do special teams. Tressel wins the coaching battle because he wins big games and Brown is a little lacking there...intangibles go to the Bucks because playing in front of a fired up, hungry horseshoe crowd of 105,000 HAS to inspire the Buckeyes.

I'm guessing 35-27 Buckeyes.

I should retract my prediction...so far this year I have picked Boise State over Georgia, the Raiders over the Pats, and Michigan over Notre Dame...anyone see a pattern here?

Yeah, do not start offering odd, unless you can lay at better ones :grin:

I'm not a gambling man (money wise), but I like to lay it out there on the line sometimes and pick the underdog. Trust me, if there was money on the line, I'd be making none of these picks.

Here's why I like OSU tonight though:

Tressel wins big games and Mack Brown blows them, and this is certainly a big game.
OSU's defense is better than Texas' defense. The stereotype about big 10 defensive team speed is just that.
OSU has more playmakers on offense. Vince Young is cancelled out by Troy Smith, who is a little smaller but a little quicker.
The shoe will be crazy tonight, and it will cause problems with Texas' offense.

I may be wrong as Hell, and if I am I'm gonna stop picking games altogether, but I think these are solid and legitimate reasons why the Buckeyes prevail tonight.

Speaking of, I gotta go grab a good seat at the Sports bar...Hopefully I'll be drunkedly posting up congrats to the Bucks around 11:30 tonight!

well mack brown just won the rose bowl, but he didn't win it the players do, so the coaches have nothing to do with this, it's the playmakers and vince is a better play maker then any of them. it's going to be a close game but ya'll are way overhypin ya'lls d, ya'll will not be able to keep up with vince, por favor believe it
