#2 Ohio State (1-1) vs. #5 Oklahoma (2-0) Postgame
« on: September 06, 2017, 09:55:36 AM »
I'll start this thread just to say Oklahoma is looking for payback after last year.  The Sooners have been feeling some major butt hurt over the last year due to the Buckeyes.  What goes around comes around.

Oklahoma    35
Ohio State  24

Should be a fun game.  Hope to see some ferocious defense from the Bucks.

The road team is undefeated in this series.

Oklahoma won the first game in 1977 by one point.

Ohio St beat Oklahoma by 10 in 1983.

Ohio St beat Oklahoma by 21 last year.

The trial by fire should help the young corners, but how much?

Some say Oklahoma has the best offensive line in the country- that makes for a good match up with the Buckeye defensive line.  

If Mayfield gets both a running game, and time to throw, Oklahoma pulls it out.

I have a feeling Oklahoma is just going to go air raid, and really not even try to run the ball. I would anyways, after watching the OSU/IU game. I would be shocked if Mayfield doesn't throw for 350, and honestly I think he throws for close to 450 in this game and OU should score 28-35 points.

What it comes down to in my opinion is, will Ohio State's offense finally start to be a unit that can win games? or is the offense just going to be the third wheel again and just try not to lose games?

I was so sick of the vanilla offense last year, but I think OU can be gashed with the run, will JK get a bunch of carries after his amazing opener? or is weber going to steal a bunch of those carries? if weber gets those carries can he be dynamic or the weber we saw at the end of last season? I don't think Ohio State's offense has to be great in this game, but it cant have 4 three and outs in like 5 series type of offense. Bucks will get a turnover or two in the shoe, but honestly I think this is a coin toss game. neither team is eliminated from playoff contention with a loss, assuming neither gets totally blown out anyways.

im probably foolish for doing this, but I think the bucks run for 200 yards, JT figured something out by hitting Campbell a few times in that 2nd half last week and I think that's his go to guy this week. Bucks defense gives up a ton of yards, but clamps down in the red zone holding OU to a couple of FGs instead of TDs. win a very tight game, 34-27

This game worries me in large part because of what Temp said.  For a year since the game in Norman Ohio State has been looking back at this game as an illustration of how great they were/are while Oklahoma has been looking at this as need to improve.  

TresselownsUM stated that "neither team is eliminated from playoff contention with a loss" and I agree but with two important caveats:
  • For both teams a loss effectively eliminates the margin for error from the rest of the season.  In the playoff era several teams have made the playoff with bad losses but no team has made it with two losses.  That isn't likely to change this year so the loser of this game likely has to turn around and go on an 11-game winning streak to finish 12-1 and a Conference Champion.  
  • I do think that a loss is much more costly for Oklahoma than for Ohio State.  The Big12 didn't look very good in week one so while there are three ranked teams on the rest of OU's schedule (#11 OkSU, #19 KSU, and #23 TCU) those rankings do not provide much opportunity to impress the voters.  Meanwhile the Buckeye's remaining schedule includes #4 PSU and #8 Michigan along with a potential B1GCG against #9 Wisconsin.  I think that a theoretical 12-1 Oklahoma with a loss to Ohio State has a MUCH greater chance of missing the playoff than a theoretical 12-1 Ohio State with a loss to Oklahoma.

I think Weber probably starts the first series in this game, anyone else think otherwise?

And when Dobbins rolls in the 2nd or 3rd series, the crowd goes nuts and now there's a ton of pressure every time weber carries the ball.

I just hope it doesn't cause Weber to get the boo birds, I remember when Pryor would come in for Boeckman, or Joe Germaine for Stanley etc. I think the cheers were fine, but it was always bad to hear the boo birds when the other guy came back in.

I'll admit though, I probably booed Stanley Jackson, that guy stunk, lol

I heard an interesting stat on the radio yesterday and I have not confirmed it.  Maybe Ftbobs can make an appearance and confirm.

What is OSU's all time record against Top 5 non-conference teams coming to the Shoe?

0-6-1

If that's true, it surprises me greatly.

OU's O is gonna come swinging for the fences, and they won't stop. OU's defense has been getting ragged on, and they will play with a huge chip on their shoulder. I think Mayfeild will be the best player on the field Saturday night.

All I think spells a tall order for the Buckeyes. OSU has the talent to win, the coaches, and home field. 

I think I would trust Baker with the ball down 1 score late in the game more than JT. I hope it does't come to that, OSU 42, OU 27.

  I think that a theoretical 12-1 Oklahoma with a loss to Ohio State has a MUCH greater chance of missing the playoff than a theoretical 12-1 Ohio State with a loss to Oklahoma.  

I don't,lose this at home then all bets are off.Both teams are healthy coming out of the gate and don't play the same opponents.Only thing in common is Saturday Nite.If a team beats you at home you won't get sympathy.Lotta games left to play so that can change.Just win baby
