Let's do it. :suprised:

Meyer said Illinois trying to find an identity on offense. Running a lot of front side read plays with Scheelhaase.
Weather is sposed to be pretty good actually...I see the bucks actually tearing the roof off the joint...ILL is that bad and we are a very confident team. 52-17
ESPN- 5 POINTS TO THE GAME
Time to see ~~~
Kenny G..Dunn (if healthy) frosh LB's in there on sat along with M.Thomas and with other bench players.Bummer we don't play MSU or Nebraska in 13/14.
please let it be a blowout and easily cover that spread... No Tim Beckman surprises
At-least they are getting replaced on the schedule by Iowa and Northwestern...
Better than Minnesota...
5 Questions: Illinois at Ohio State................Illinois enters Ohio Stadium on Saturday looking to break a five-game losing streak, and we have five questions about what they might need to do to pull that off while the Buckeyes seek to improve to 10-0.
Buckeyes Have Things To Prove Against Illini.......................Urban Meyer has been nothing if not honest during his first season as head coach at Ohio State. Wednesday night was no different when the topic of the Buckeyes' readiness to face a struggling Illinois team this weekend at Ohio Stadium.
Illinois has won ~~~
7 of the last 11 games played in the "Horseshoe" ,enough already.
Game Data: Illinois at Ohio State.......................
Interesting numbers going into today's game... Illinois's passing defense can be considered the worst in the B1G despite "only" giving up a conference 8th ranked 213.3 ypg... How you might ask? Opposing QBs have thrown 15 TDs to 6 INTs against them (12th and t-7th worst in the B1G respectively) and the defense has allowed opposing QBs a B1G highest passer rating of 149.18, hence making them the worst pass efficiency defense in the conference... Sounds like just the D we need to face to get the passing game going again.
Perhaps today will be Miller's 4th 200+ passing game of the season, which would be nice to see. Miller needs only 477 passing yards in the final 3 games to become just the 10th Div I FBS QB to ever throw for 2,000+ and run for 1,000+ yards in a single season. A solid 200+ game today and two average outings against Wisky and scuM would put him over the mark. He needs to average 157.7 yards passing the rest of the season to do it... Dare I say, at least as far as this season's remaining schedule.. this is the most likely opponent that we could see Miller achieve his first career 250+ pass, 100+ rushing performance against.
The other interesting tidbit along these lines... The Game could also mark the first time in NCAA history (all divisions) that opposing QBs have reached that milestone in the same game. Should Denard Robinson achieve the benchmark again this season, he would join Nevada's Colin Kapernick as the only QBs to ever do so in 3 seasons, both doing so consecutively. However Robinson is still 681 passing yards and 54 rushing yards away, but has 3 games prior to The Game to get close, and had averaged 180.6 yards passing a game before leaving the Nebraska game early.
With all that said....
Ohio State 66 | Illinois 16
We will honor the Military today and there will be a fly over during pregame (I love when they do that).
Then I will have to step out down behind the leasing office around kickoff... With Graceland across the road, and the Olentangy about a half mile past that, you can see about 5 miles west and 3 miles south over the Olentangy "valley" from where I live... plenty of room to see the aircraft...
Really not fond of the announcers with all due respect to Joey...............
I can deal with Joey. But Beth is awful I hate that she is calling games
