    This is a game you circle on your schedule. I get that Franklin is trying to be cute, but if he hasn't been prepping for this one for a while, Urban is gonna make him look like a fool.

    This team had better come out on fire for this one.

    Penn State beat us by 3 last year, and they want to act like their Bama. A game that Meyer made one of his dumbest coaahing decisions ever in, rushing fg team on during a rain storm. Come on now PSU. I think we win, but not in a blow out, and I think Barkley racks up close to 200 yards...all purpose. I don't think he'll run all over us, but IF PSU gets him 1 on 1 with our backers in the pass game it's over

    You're also forgetting Beck's dumbass decision to have JT pass the ball in a fluke 3 minute hurricane that hit as soon as we got to the redzone.

    PSU's gonna have to show that they can stop our offense before I believe they can beat us. We were marching up an and the field at will against them last year, and stomped them the year before. I really don't think they're going to have an answer for our passing attack, and if we can get out to an early lead and force them into a passing game, I don't think it'll be close.

    Obviously, I really like our odds here.

    This is one of those games I can see our defense doing a lot of bending but not breaking. I think we will see something similar to the PSU/UM game where we have a hot start, they make it close, but then we win big. If JT has anywhere close to 300 total yards, which I think he will, it'll be a great day for us.

    OSU - 38
    PSU - 20

    I was hoping that video showed the obvious PI that wasn't called on the last drive. Yeah, there were a lot of things that happened in that game where if just call was made, a timeout was called, the OC wasn't hot garbage, etc... Ohio State could have won by 3 or 4 TD's.

    But it's okay, they'll find out on Saturday that their win last year was a fluke... WE OWN...Penn State!

    Im worried about the DB's, they are going to have to be diligent in playing the ball in the air, which we have not seen them perform well this year. The Buckeyes defense is a lot like the Chiefs (my favorite NFL team), they rely on their DLine to generate pressure, they like to play press if the other team is a good run team, but their DB's are small and poor at playing the ball in the air.

    I would not mind seeing Sheffield play more Safety. I feel like he has the frame and aggressiveness to be a really good SS. Webb is just awful and he worries me if he's going to be covering Gesicki.

    Sheffield has had some trouble covering WR's this year, but I feel that his style would be better covering TE's and coming up stopping the run.

    Everyone remember when our best offensive weapon last year only got 3 touches..............they resulted in 70 plus yards and then we didn't go back to him.........

    Meyer called Penn State's pass defense the best in the nation.

    Meyer on revenge as motivation: Said it can be used, but isn't sure it will.

    Meyer said Demetrius Knox remains the starting right guard though he said it's a day-to-day thing because there's competition.

    Meyer on PSU’s Barkley: “He’s the best all-purpose player the team has faced.” Meyer adds maybe the best he’s faced in his career.

    Meyer said Parris Campbell, Jamarco Jones and Jalyn Holmes are all good to go. Were all hurt against Nebraska.

    Meyer on his team this week: “I’d like to think we have a good feel” of how the team is doing and will perform on Saturday vs Penn State.

    Meyer says Mike Weber is good to go and will wear a brace on his hand after it got dinged during the Nebraska game.

    Urban Meyer said Ohio State is practicing better than they have in years.

    Meyer says Penn State is a really good team that’s “aggressive” on defense. He says the play all over the place.

    Urban Meyer says Ohio State has made adjustments to where it is placing its kickoffs after some issues in that area earlier this season.

    Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Demario McCall's status is "to be determined." Available to play, but not full speed.
