What a pitiful showing for OSU, Coqui. Jesus

We always play Illinois close.

So how dead does Denard Robinson need to be before Michigan realizes they can't do shit? Seriously two games in a row injured....and he's just starting the Big10 and almost lost against the team predicted to finish dead last in the conference?

Whatever. The Buckeyes looked fucking flat, and they're #2? WTF

Michigan has a horrible defense. This is well known. I really hope they fire what the fuck ever their defensive coordinators name is. And he has a bruised knee. He left than came back. Shit happens. See: Terrell Pryor :D

edit: And if by some act of God, he lasts the whole season, the Heisman will be a landslide. First QB to ever have two 200 yard passing and rushing games in a career. And he's a sophomore.

Defense wins championships. Illinois didn't do shit after their first drive. They got in field goal range due to an interception putting them in great field position. Then only one other drive allowed them to get into field goal range again. Other than that, Illinois didn't do jack.

Add Pryor's injury, and the rain, and that severlely hampers an offense. Seriously, all we ever did was an off tackle run. (Literally the same play 35 times in a row) If Illinois couldn't stop it, then that was their own fault.

Even if he lasts the whole season, these stats will end either next week against MSU or Iowa. I guarantee it. (Next week I will be picking MSU to win - just telling ou that already)

How about them Noles though, eh?

Next weeks game will tell us if they are for real.

I thought that drubbing my a mediocre Oklahoma told you that?

FSU's victories have been against teams with losing records and Georgia Tech. (now at 3-2)

And neither did OSU. Talk about overranked...

Compared to the previous games? No we didn't.

2 rushers just under 100 yards or over 100 yards? That's considered par for the course for any team.
76 yards passing considering the rain and wind? Not bad. (Seriously, Illinois tried a 30 yard field goal and missed. It was short but perfectly aligned - that's how bad the wind was)

And by Illinois not doing jack, they needed a trick play to score on their first drive. Almost all their yards were on that first drive. After that first drive, they only had 1 drive longer than 20 yards.

Regarding our ranking, that all depends on October 16th and the first two games in November. We'll find out then.

I really, really don't like how our team is entering games ASLEEP. At least we manage to wake the F up and play some real football, eventually :p

:lol: Sorry I only pick teams that play more than 2 quarters.

Hey we woke up in the 2nd. That counts as three :p
We had a hell of a rest of the game trying to make that comeback. The Wolfpack has massively sandy vaginas now, complaining about how football is a two-faced bitch. Well, that's what happens when you LEAVE the game after the first half. Silly NCS :p
