Separation Saturday. Veritable college football mana, sent from the Lord on High Himself, to sate his unworthy children on this great Saturday in Febtober.
That’s great and all, but this is a Buckeye Blog. We will keep a watchful eye on those teams above us. And that’s all. It’s all about the Purdue Boilermakers and that really big bass drum. Seriously. That thing is huge.
So what is there to look for in this game? Youth. After the carnage from OSU’s helmet-to-helmet collision with Wisconsin last week, it looks like we’ll be seeing more freshmen this game. This season was supposed to be the Year of the Senior. Turns out, we were all a few years early.
The line sits at 19 (at least last time I checked). What say you?
Your prediction could win you a copy of Woody Hayes’ Ohio State Buckeyes on DVD (Available to the
losers non-winners at Amazon.comand A&E TV). If your prediction is the closest to the final score, you win! Deadline for entry will be Saturday at 3:30 PM EDT. Former contest winners are not eligible. Lo siento.
(In the case of a tie-breaker, pick a winner of the OU/Texas game)
el Kaiser’s prediction:
I’ve been predicting offensive explosions lately, so I’m playing this one close to the vest. I still think OSU wins big, but they don’t cover.
I have two: one that assumes Tresselball will continue in C-bus for the remainder of the year; and one that speculates that the reason for the vanilla schemes over the past month is temporary, and only due to Beanie’s injury and Pryor’s inexperience.
If it’s “I’m playing Tresselball”:
Purdue: 13 (late TD in garbage time)
If it’s “Pryor has developed ahead of schedule and we should get him more practice with a wider playbook”:
