Growing up in Ashtabula, Ohio, the northeast part of the state, Meyer and his family were unabashed Buckeyes fans. As an Ohio native who grew up watching this game, he recognizes the history and importance of Michigan-Ohio State. Quarterbacks have posted a 94.2 rating against MI, second-lowest in the nation to ...
There hasn't been much talk about the Buckeyes becoming LBJ Brand across the board, but it does look like the Buckeyes could potentially be wearing a little King James gear this weekend for "The Game".
"It's very important", cornerback Jourdan Lewis said. Oklahoma State was ranked No. 22 at the time and was not considered a legitimate playoff contender. "I just mentioned to him that not only has Von had a significant role on our team the last two and a half years, but he'll continue to have a significant role moving forward from a leadership perspective and those types of things". Alabama as SEC champions, Clemson as ACC champions, Washington as Pac-12 champions and either Ohio State or MI winning the Big Ten make it an easy Final Four. But he and his proud program must upset Ohio State to show significant signs of progress this season.
There's no word yet on how many Buckeyes will actually take the field with them, but they definitely have the shoes, according to Sole. "Took away our pride".
Michigan: DB/LB Jabrill Peppers.
Last week: Beat Indiana 20-10. The game will be televised on ABC with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Sam Ponder on the call.More news: Brazilian GP halted after safety vehicle start
MI and Ohio State will kick off at noon on Saturday at the 'Shoe.
"He's a great player and we all know that", Thomas said of Barrett. However, even with that title and the win, it seems that Oklahoma State is still being held back from serious playoff contention because of that dreaded second loss. When his receivers and line are cooperating, he can beat you two ways.
Ohio State: Marc Loving had his first double-double of the season, and has had the hot hand in consecutive games. "Which will it be Saturday?"
But this much is clear: If a few things fall into place in the next two weeks, the selection committee is going to have to make some tough - and controversial - decisions. The best that could be said about backup quarterback John O'Korn's performance against IN was that he scrambled well and didn't turn the ball over. Give me a break, Clemson is more than capable of winning out. "I didn't think the drop off would be that significant, given O'Korn's experience at Houston".
Minnesota LB Blake Cashman has been coming up big since early November and played his best game last week, finishing with 10 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in the win over Northwestern. His first taste of college coaching was at Ohio State, where he was a graduate assistant in 1986 and '87 for Earle Bruce, the man who worked for and then replaced Hayes as Buckeyes head coach in 1979. The first is an Ohio State win, which would move the Buckeyes to 11-1 and hand MI its second loss; the Wolverines would be removed from the Playoff race. And with 2,600 seats being removed for an Ohio Stadium renovation in 2018, Saturday's number will last.
