haven't seen a thread yet so...

Who are you taking?


My take on it is Ohio State does have a stronger offense, but not by much. Texas' Defense is very solid as Ohio State I would say has a below average defense. The game will be won on special teams as most games are, but just from what I saw last week...and knowing history of all the players on both teams.


I am picking Texas, 35-32.

I predict that I will be at the game! I have never seen a #1 vs #2 matchup unless it was in my toilet. I'm pumped. Does anyone know if the College Gameday crew is supposed to be there? We're spending the night in Austin Friday and Saturday. Sunday, we get up and drive to Houston to see some dead Eagles. The Texans season tickets are mine, but as far as the Longhorn tickets go, thank God for good friends.

This is a tough call. Texas has a freshman QB, going against a all new defense, and Texas just lost Tarell Brown for the game. I think that Ohio St. will win with a veteran QB. I do think it will be a close one that is decided on a big defensive play.

Ohio St. 27-20.

Texas doesn't have to do anything more than feed the ball to the running backs, hit the TE over the middle, and not let Ginn roast what should be all-time double coverage with a safety deep. If they don't give up multiple big plays, they should roll...

Close game that I expect to be dominated by defense. Gotta go with home field as the tie-breaker.

Texas has two first round DBs that are "locks" as 1st day picks in '07...... I think they'll give Ginn a thing or two to worry about.

BradyQuinn also looked pretty avg against GT....... the reason ND dropped to #6 in the country.

Texas' offense doesn't look to have missed a beat...... against NorthernTexas(or whoever that was they beat)...... the reason they moved up to #2.

My brother-in-laws & I will be pulling for JamalCharles our hometown kid, so I'm going a gainst the odds(ESPN poll I saw this morning...... ohio 68% Texas 32%) & picking Texas in an upset.

You mean Texas will have one first round CB playing that day.

I just dont think Colt is ready yet. Looked ok last weekend, but that was against North Texas, not USC in a championship game! It will be closer than what I expeted before the season, but unfortanately I think Ohio State gets the Horns in Austin....:fireball: :fireball: :francis:

I really do think this game is going to be big, But i really hope Texas can live up to the hype, their going to have a freshman qb out there, and no Tarrel Brown. Thats just going to help fuel an already explosive OSU offense, but the last time Texas played a #1 team while being ranked #2, I predict Texas in a very close game.

1st round/day DBs...not CBs. Now if by some chance Aarron Ross and Michael Griffin find themselves drafted in the 1st round/day...then he would be correct.

Still won't be enough:

Texas - 17
tOSU - 27

Not a prediction but I found a great article about team attitude. Along with the bad press (DB Brown) there is good one too.

I hope Texas wins.

last year texas defense really got after the buckeyes... Tressel rotated his quarterbacks which some people questioned, but I think it was because they were taking so much punishment. Troy Smith was playing in his first game of the season since he was suspended for the season opener, and was a bit rusty.

Not the same Troy Smith this year though. He is more polished, confident, poised, etc. etc. OSU passing attack will be the undoing of the Longhorns, unless the Longhorns can punish Troy Smith and turn him into a David Carr. Not sure how good the OSU running game is since they played a pushover last week, looking forward to see how they stack up against the horns.

Should be a great game, with the bucks getting revenge for last year, too bad these teams don't play each other more often.

Gene Chizik is the best DC in the country. His coaching makes the difference in this game.

Hole-e-crap... I was at the damn game. UT's passing offense looked pathetic. They either didnt trust Colt to throw downfield, or didnt want to make big plays.

UT had 2 fumbles lost, and a interception. UT's defense played ok, but forced zero turnovers......

Colt made some fine throws, that were just dropped. there must've been 10 dropped passes. Last year, a tentative SelvinYoung, LImas Sweed, & JamalCharles, knew they could win that game. This year.......... drop... drop... everyone of those guys dropped at least one ball.

& I don't know about them not letting Colt throw downfiled, I saw both WRs open on many plays, and Colt checked down to the backs....... But you've got 4 year NFL starters doing the same thing, so....... that's not a big problem.

A certain QB made that team better........ but we don't want to talk about that.

Texas met my expectations. They kept the score low for most of the game, but their secondary obviously needs a lot of work. Colt is looking good. Second start, national champion team he's playing against. I was happy with it.

Troy Smith looked really good, too. I was impressed by Gonzales more than Teddy Ginn, Jr., but great teams have more than one threat. My hope is that over the years Carr-to-Daniels can tear up defenses the way Smith-to-Gonzales does. Congrats, Buckeyes!
