The Buckeyes built a comfortable lead and then gave up two touchdowns off turnovers late in the third quarter — and almost lost another fumble deep in their own territory on the next play — to slip past Michigan State 24-17 on Saturday.
I'm gonna say that Penn St is going to beat Ohio St. Someone's gotta be first to say it.
The way I see it, I think Morelli is gonna choke as he usually does on big games. It's gonna be a close one, no doubt about it. The 12th man at this game is nuts. The sure as hell do "white out" OSU when we come in to town. I hope we can get this phased out of our minds. Loud noise practices are going to be the key this week. I'm really hoping College Gameday goes somewhere else, but I am highly doubting that.
Man this game means a lot to me. 6 of my cousins have graduated from Penn St. and 6 of us (Next year it will be 7 after I graduate) have graduated from Ohio St. Whoever wins has bragging rights for the year. We even get togeather for the game in which state it's played in and have a trophy that goes to the winner.
14 linebackers drafted
average draft position - 88
average linebacker rank - 11
so, if we look at the last 15 drafts, so-called linebacker u has had 4 fewer linebackers drafted (14 versus 10). the separation between the average draft positions for each school was 38 (88th versus 126th). that's more than a whole rounds difference! finally, comparing average linebacker ranks, the difference is 7 (11th versus 18th).
by the way... for how many drafts has penn state been in the big ten? yep, that's right. 15.
^^^^The follwing post is from www.buckeyeplanet.com. I just found how ironic it was that they are still called Linebacker U.
I'm definitely worried about penn state still, but it's a winnable game. I am glad we had a bit of a scare against Michigan state that we survived that will help us get our heads in the game for the big ones coming up.
Like I said before, we need to get morrelli on the run and hit him hard and often and he'll make mistakes.
