Firstly, our weakness finally killed us. I've been bitching about him all year. Todd Boeckman, our QB. He was the bane of our team all year. Everyone told me he is great and that I am too harsh. Yet every game I got two or more "I told you so" moments.

Hell, in the MI State game he single handedly gave up 14 points in under 1 minute of game clock (fumble followed by an INT, both returned for TD's). Yesterday, 3 picks, one IN the endzone, one stupidly into double coverage driving down for the tie near the end of the game. And ESPN is putting him in Heisman talk? WTF.

What is different from the 2002 National Championship team? Also a great defense with a sucky QB. OUR DEFENSE SCORED ON A REGULAR BASIS. In some games, our defense outscored the offense. Sadly, the 2007 defense isn't that good.

For those who watched the game, admit we got screwed on IL's first TD - that was clearly a fumble and I have NO IDEA why it was not reviewed!!!!! /anger

Kudos to Juice Williams, proving everyone wrong who said he can not throw. because he threw all over us! we clearly were not prepared for that.

IlliniJen, you're my new nemesis, my arch rival, a super villain, my opponent, the bane of my existence.

Well I said ALL year OSU was a one loss team. I NEVER changed that predicition. I hope we beat MI and go to the Rose Bowl.

you shoud put a ton of blame into your defense. i'm not sure how they could allow Juice Williams to run the same play for 8 minutes successfully, but they did. on 3rd and 6, he got 7 yards. on 3rd and 12, he got 13 yards. ouch.

I understand not being prepared for him, but no idea why we couldn't make adjustments.

I was watching something else, but anyone who beats theOSU, in the shoe, well my hats off to them. Most of the games I saw yesterday, everyone was making extensive use of the repaly feature. I hope we get a replay of the game. Looks to me that the buckeyes couldn't get off the feild on third down....a lot.

I didn't actually see the second half, I had an event to attend. I had the Mrs.'s Pearl hitting "refresh" on the box score.

Oh well, on to the cesspool up north. *cancels LA hotel rooms*

agree with Kast :)

kept waiting for the OSU linebackers to close the lanes down....waiting.....waiting....never happened. also OSU offensively forced the ball into coverage when they had plenty of time left on the clock resulting in two costly turnovers. I think they hit the :panic: before the 4th quarter ever started.
