I just have a few comments from Saturday’s game. Much like last week, I feel a little guilty that most of these are negative, but that’s the price the program pays for their success over the years...
*Nice win, another shutout, but still a lot of work to do. Seems like we are running out of time to fix our issues. I can’t believe there are only 3 games left.
*Pryor’s decision-making is still awful most of the time. Not only on passes, but also on runs. Countless times on Saturday, he cut outside trying to make a play when nothing was there…he still refuses to take the easy 3 yards and cut inside. Instead, he tries to cut outside for a bigger play, and loses a yard or worse. And this was against New Mexico State. Folks, he’s just not getting it. Any of it.
*Posey’s TD throw was the best-looking, most accurate pass I’ve seen all year from OSU. Yikes. Lost in all of that…love the play call!
*Pettrey misses 2 more field goals, then gets hurt. Again, this will catch up with us before the year is over…
*Defense obviously needs to win the game at Penn St for us to win. I see them playing tough, but right now I see a 19-13 loss over there, and I almost never predict an OSU loss (though I did for USC this year). I just don’t see us winning that game, and I hope I’m wrong.
*Michigan football (all teams in the state) is in the crapper again. For a little perspective on the mood up here, click the below link, go to the bottom under “Podcasts” and click “Play” under “Mike reacts to the Halloween weekend football games.” Forward through the first minute of radio lowlights to get to his comments…LOL. Valenti is great. It will probably only be up for a few days…then go to archives.
*Nice win for the Bears, but it’s sorta like OSU beating New Mexico State……we’ll take the win and it feels good, but what have I really learned about my team?
*So now I have to suck it up and give the Vikings and Favre some credit. They looked good yesterday and that was a big win. We still play them twice, and their defense is reeling, but they do look good.
*I am happy for Ted Ginn, but I doubt many Buckeye fans are surprised. He always seemed to fit the mold of kick returner versus a #1 wide receiver. I hope he continues to do well. He won the game for the Dolphins yesterday by himself.
*The Celtics signing Rondo was a great move, I’m a huge fan of his, he’s a great pointguard….I see him as simply a straight-up baller who happens to be a very smart player.
*I think Larry Johnson needs to go away.
*Michelle Beadle in Gunslingers commercial...I'm telling you, I love her in that T-shirt....see link below.
*Michael Jenkins is terrible, what is up?
*Time change...a radio DJ up here was talking about it last week, and said "One of the best things about the time change is that you get to play God 2 times a year. Eight o'clock? I think I'll make it seven o'clock..." I loved that comment.
