LOL, it's not even worth discussing anything with you. You are the biggest joke of a homer around.

Penn State is more talented at RB and at LB by far

I'll concede LBers.

That's one position.

Saine will be healthy for the first time in his career, and Herron is extremely underrated. He rushed for nearly 5 a carry and 6 scores last year subbing for Beanie.

Saine healthy is very dangerous for opponents, and I HOPE they are as ignorant about him and Herron as you are (But that would be impossible). Brandon Saine was considered the next Reggie Bush out of HS, but injuries have slowed him. He ran a 10.38 100 as a track star, too, so he is a burner.

But, you know, what good are my facts, stats and figures compared to your opinion and conjecture, right?

I HATE the obligatory 10 offensive play vanilla crap Tressel does in these warm-up games...they've never lost to a major underdog before, and haven't dropped a home opener in 31 years, but one of these days it's going to happen if they don't open up and play FOOTBALL!

You have to wait three years from when you graduate from high school. As long as i been around that has been the rule (20 years), not sure what it was before.

Better for Ohio State to work there kinks out now rather than against USC.

Ill def be routing for Ohio State next week, seeing how i hate USC.

Should be a great game, i wouldnt put to much into the Navy game, im sure it was a simple case of looking ahead to USC. Ohio State will bring there A game to USC, no doubt about it.

What scares me, though...is how little push our O-line got against Navy. If Navy was able to cover some of our plays...no matter how vanilla, USC will shut it down.

Defensively, I didn't expect for us to completely shut down Navy. Their Triple option is executed at a very high level out of Annapolis... However, the missed tackles are unexcusable. If the Navy QB can shed tackles, then the HB/FBs at USC will run silly.

I'm guessing this is classic early season/opener OSU football...they have a long track record of slacking off and then recovering:
2000-They struggled with Miami OH for 3.5 quarters only edging them 27-16, but went on to whoop PSU 45-6 the following week.
2002-They BARELY beat a very7 mediocre Cinci 23-19 in week 3, then went on to win the rest of their games, including the NC game.
2003- They struggles against perennial powerhouses like San Diego St (W 16-13), and NCST (44-38), before going to on to win all but two games and put a beating on a very good K State team in the Fiesta Bowl.
2004- Struggles to beat Marshall (24-21) although they weren't very good that year.
2007- Struggles with Akron (It was 3-2 at halftime) before putting together a runner-up year.

I was extremely disappointed with 3 things in particular:
-Our oline, the best we've had in years, looked like they were more worried about where the after party was going to be held..
-The D-line, one of the best in the Country, was shut down by a slightly better than average, and definitely undersiazed, Navy Oline.
-Tress stupidly listening to Pryor and going for it on 4th and 2. It'd be different if we were blowing them off the line all day or something, but we weren't, and ran a simple and predictable off-tackle left.

We hit the reasonably easy FG, go up by 3 scores, and probably coast out with a 32-14 win, maybe even bigger since Navy being down by 18 would have to pass the ball more deep in their own territory. Instead, they catch the D napping on the next play and the rest if history. It's like the team was on autopilot in the 4th, and just going through the motions.

If they don't come in firing on all cylinders next week, they'll get blown out again. I think they'll be up, but who knows? They should be able to rattle USC's frosh QB, and I expect Pryor to have a much better game as he craves the spotlight, but we MUST have a much better effort along both lines.
