Man, I remember the UT vs OSU thread last season, that was sweet. This will be an awesome game -- not as many stars as last season, but really competitive altogether. Personally, I think OSU have too much talent and UT have too many questions at QB, also with Tarrell Brown out, Griff and co. are going to have difficulty covering Ginn Jr.

Close, but IMO OSU pull away with a late score. 30-14 is my prediction.

I agree with your take...but I would much rather Texas won

Should be a massive intensity and energy advantage for Texas to start the game. My prized home anti-revenge theory. It normally works best in high profile matches early in the year. After winning at OSU last year the Horns will be in a fury to certify that win as legit, classic home anti-revenge. It doesn't have to translate to the scoreboard at halftime, but you'll come out ahead more often than not by speculating it that way.

Texas will win.

No-one knows this it seems but their QB is very talented, and they still have a great offense, OSU replacing 9 players on defense + Texas still having a very good defense should end up with this being a Texas win

I for some reason can see OSU winning relatively easily actually. Colt has never been tested and even though OSU is replacing a lot of starters on defense I think they still have a lot of talent. Plus they have a great offense and Texas just lost its best corner. I'm not saying OSU blows them out, I'm just saying I wouldnt be surprised if they made it look easier then expected.

OSU's D is better than the NIU game indicated.

After the 1st quarter, Tressel was shuttling 5 to 6 guys out after each play to give younger guys experience.

Wolfe tanking over 3 of our defensive backs to get a touchdown is without question horrible and I can assure you will be corrected befoe the UT game.

I feel better about this game than last year's actually.

Actually not sure who to root for in this one. OSU clearly has the tougher schedule so it'd be very possible for them to win here and drop one down the road where as this is clearly Texas' toughest game of the regular season. I'm hoping they both lose in the long run.

The Buckeyes were the better team last year, and are still the better team this year.....

Whats harder on a team?

9 defensive starters or losing Vince Young?

Vince Young single handidly won Texas there two hardest games last year..... and he's gone.....

Ohio State wins last year if Troy Smith plays the whole game...but coach Tress had to send a message.......

This year the Buckeyes win going away...

Are you for real?

Texas wins this one - no doubt in my mind that home field advantage and strong defense will see Texas through, but it will be a tight game in my mind.

Feel free to slate me if I am wrong though!!!

since anyone can play QB in texas's offense and succeed, OSU losing 9 starters on defense is clearly a much bigger deal. texas still has a great defense, they're at home, and their offense outmatches OSU's defense, so...

Success and the ability to beat the #1 team in the nation are 2 different things.... does Texas beat Ohio State or USC with Colt McCoy at QB last year? No chance in hell... The texas offense WAS Vince Young......

The question is, who will outscore who...texas D lost Wright, Huff, Griffin in the draft, and now there new starting CB..... so they've lost 4 players on D, an OL, and THE ONLY REASON they won there only big games last year...... Think about it.

the texas offense was a simple 1-read option that any QB with ANY mobility could've done great in.

Texas wins. Their defense is better than Ohio State's, and they have plenty of playmakers on offense to control the clock. I still think it will be close though. Maybe 30-27.:wink:

They have Sweed and Young.... Sweed will be an afterthought because McCoy will be spending the afternoon on his ***.....

If Texas only scores 30 this game will be a blowout for OSU

If Texas only scores 30 it'll be a blowout? How many points do you think OSU will score, 65? I think OSU has a better chance of winning if it's a lower scoring game (Meaning Texas scores less then 30).

I'm pulling for OSU dude, but there's no way you can say Vince was the only reason they won those games. That defense was the best in the nation and made the plays that counted. Vince happened to make the final plays at the ends of the game, but you can't dictate it like that -- if that defense was another D, perhaps they would've given up 60 in the first quarter and Vince would've been a non-event.

As long as a TE doesnt drop a ball in the endzone that would LOCK the game w/3min left in the 4th..we should be alright.

Our Defense is suspect but our offense looks like it can score at will..not 60 of course but how bout...............OSU 41 Texas 27



..by the wa you can only run the ball late in the game IF yor close...I think OSU scores enough to make Texas 1 dimensional and pulls away late.

09-06-2006, 11:04 PM
Wolfe was the best RB tOSU has on thier schedule...dont buy into the whorn fans who say Jamaal Charles is better that Wolfe or Adrian Peterson...he is a fumble machine..runing game should be easy to stop

Passing game is different...Great O-line...great core of recievers...freshman QB...if tOSU's d-line hassels McCoy enough and scares him silly he should be easy to stop.

tOSU wins easy and coasts until the meet Oklahoma in Arizona :D

This weekend is going to be a zoo here. People were setting up tailgate locations on Wednesday. Besides the usual contingent of UT fans traveling in for the game, there are supposed to be close to 40,000 TOSU fans coming in. There were a dozen TOSU folks on my flight from Las Vegas yesterday. The TOSU alumni have rented out UT's basketball arena for their pre-game rally and one of the major downtown nightspots for their pre- and post-game parties.

Well, so much for the anti-revenge in the first half. I would have had a push minus that last score. Tough to overcome a turnover inside the other team's 5 yard line when you're dealing with a first half wager.

Now I don't know what to root for, other than both teams to lose.

So much for the "any quarterback can win in the Texas system" backhanded slap at Vince.

Couple of things. I thought UT was outmatched for most parts of game, except for UT O-line vs OSU D-line. Problem was OSU is a quality defense and you had to complete some passes. Didn't do it when we needed to.

Troy Smith is for real. I said it last year after the UT game and he proved it.

UT secondary has problems over and above losing our starting CB.

I think McCoy will be fine....next year.

OSU dominated the game. I never really felt we were in it. They moved the ball when they needed to.

UT, we still are National champs for a few more games. Wont be repeating this year. Oh well.

a buddy who is dyed in the wool OSU felt Texas gave up the running game to soon, that UT was winning in the trenches early on.

I don't think I would argue with him. I really wanted to see a little more power running, like we did at end of first half, to take advantage of our O-line. I don't remeber seeing Melton in the game at all. Thought Selvin and Charles did great but a little beef in 90 degree weather wouldn't have hurt.

The Pittman fumble was brutal, but not fatal.

Saying all of that, I think OSU still wins the game. Their O was really good against a really good UT D and our O was not.
