Link Roundup

Here are some links you need to be reading.

The most excellent Notre Dame blog, The Blue-Gray Sky, just finished up their look back at OSU’s four big plays from the Fiesta Bowl. It’s excellent work, we tip our hat to them. You can see their breakdown of: Ginn’s 56 yard catch, Ginn’s 68 yard reverse, Santonio’s 85 yard catch, and Pittman’s 60 yd run.

Speaking of Notre Dame, I was going to write up a post about why I think Notre Dame’s chances of getting to the Fiesta Bowl are slim, but Joe Schlabach has already done that. That schedule is going to be bah-root-al. Good luck with that, Weis & Co.

Troy Smith lists his five favorite players to watch, with a sideways shoot-out to his main man, TGJ. He’s also puffing up future OSU opponent Garrett Wolfe. Garrett Wolfe?

The Ciskie Blog has posted his Big Ten preview, with the Scarlet and Gray leading the pack. The Sports Network, on the otherhand, has OSU at #3.

Sean at The 614 let’s us in on his private Q&A wherein he discusses the 2006 Buckeyes. Sean isn’t as bullish on the OSU offense as we are, but he’s got a valid point – Tressel loves to control the clock and run the ball. We still think (and hope) that OSU is going to air it out more than they have in the past, but with a backfield of Pitmann and Wells2, you can’t really blame them. Sean hits it on the nose with:

They should be able to move the ball effectively on the ground and in the air, and they’ll put some points on the board, but I think Tressel would prefer a 28-17 win with a big edge in time of possession over a 42-31 win with a more even time of possession.

Have to agree with him on that point, no argument here. I just want to see 500 yards and 42 points every once and a while.

Also, in MotSaG news, we should have our preview of the Secondary up soon. Stay tuned!
