Friday Open Thread: Virginia Tech

Week two of the college football season dawns upon us, and here are some of the crucial areas to contemplate as Ohio State welcomes in Virginia Tech for a nationally televised game at 8pm EST on ESPN:

In a tip of the hat to scheduling quality opponents, Ohio State and Notre Dame announced a future home & home series for 2022 and 2023. While I have concerns about how much these tickets will cost, Ryan expressed his concern over the series in the following fashion on Twitter…

On The Urban Meyer Call-In Show on 09/04/2014, Shelley Meyer called into the show under the alias of “Sasha”, asking Coach Meyer about the shovel pass or jump pass…

– For those of you who may be inclined to watch as many games as possible, Jason provided a guide for the games that will be on, and which networks are televising them.

Looking forward to attending the game versus Virginia Tech on Saturday evening in Ohio Stadium with family and friends. Ronnie provided players to watch on the Virginia Tech side of the ledger.

Remembering how Ohio State struggled along the offensive line last week versus Navy, and how Virginia Tech was able to give Alabama a good game in the 2013 season opener, when Alabama also had to work with a rebuilt offensive line, has convinced me that this game is going to be relatively low-scoring and won in the trenches. I have it Ohio State 20, Virginia Tech 17.

How do you see it? Go Bucks!


  1. I will almost be 50, so Ryan gets NO SYMPATHY. NONE, fine sir!

    I have read and considered this VT game as much as anyone, I’m sure, and I just don’t see it being close. VT has some playmakers and athletes, no doubt. But I feel like the Killer Bees (Bennett and Bosa) are going to shutdown any semblance of a VT running game. I see this

    Ohio State 31
    VT 13

  2. I’m so glad to see someone joining me on my controversial dark side!! Welcome aboard boss and I like your thinking and as far as feeling sympathy since someone will be 35 boo boo if only I could be that age again haha. GO BUCKEYES
