  1. I love this segment!

    This data=Eastern Michigan bloodbath.

    If Ohio State can’t run the damn ball against this team for near 300 yards, something is definately wrong.

    Get through this game injury free and with a W and move on to the Big Ten schedule and closer to another Big Ten title.

  2. That’s exactly what I told the sportsMonkey yesterday. We need 300 yards on the ground, at least. And half of those better come from Berry and Hall. And little or none from Pryor.

  3. I wish there was a way to split by half, or by quarter. Those numbers include significant data from OSU’s 2nd and 3rd teams.

    And yes, I want to see Pryor pass 30 times for over 300 yards. Great article this week over at ATO shows the bottom line – if we want rushing numbers to come up, we’ve got to pass more.

  4. What I want.
    Pryor 21 of 25 for 301 yards, No carries cause even if EMU Brings all 11 Pryor should stiil have time to throw (come on O-line!).
