Thank you Sir....I wanted to say that but didn't feel like putting
up with some of the comments that I would have, and you will
probably receive. Glad I didn't now. You said it much more eloquently than I would have.

Agreed, UC might not have a snowballs chance themselves. They have played good ball to this point, but they are going to be playing a better team than they have faced all year. And IMO a better team than they are as a whole. In other words, don't throw stones in a glass house!

I am really surprised at Duhon Carter. He attended St Thomas Aquinas HS and can't cut in the classroom. It makes me wonder if the kid is going to class and really trying. He can't live off of Daddy's name forever.

JStew, those eight or nine kickoffs might have to be fielded by your bearcats against the gators. That defense could'nt stop a faucet leak with a pipewrench.

Ray Small has been given the benefit of several hundred doubts. Mark my words: he's going to end up the same as Chris Henry, and he has no one to blame but himself. This isn't about race or upbringing--it's about yet another idiot throwing away his life. So, GOOD RIDDANCE TO STUPID TRASH.

Maurice Clarett is the only recent member of the Slowhio State football team to do anything useful. He made my license plates.

The UC fan with the inferiority complex chimes in again. Your beloved UC team just turned into a pumpkin. The cinderalla ride is over, enjoy getting thrashed by an angry Florida team. And OSU's kick return game will be fine with someone else handling kick returns, seeing as how Ray Small is prone to fumbling.

Just tired of the arrogant, self-righteous Slowhio State fans who act like they've won a national championship every time they beat a 3-5 team in the "Big" "Ten" but then embarass the entire state when they play against a team that has actual talent.

You cannot force a kid who was never a student to begin with to suddenly to become a college student for four years. He is at OSU to be a football player. The goal is to keep him minimally eligible for four years. Clearly, that did not happen with Small. He really did not even need to be a much of a student. He only needed to do just enough to get by (i.e., go to class, let his tutors basically write his papers, etc.).

All UC has to do is keep it within 26 against Florida. 41-14 anyone?

The legislature should consider changing Ohio to "The Bearcat State" after a few more seasons where we win games that actually matter and you lose to the likes of Purdue and the 5th place PAC 10 team.

Remember this, OSU Fan: the 5th-best team in the PAC 10 beat you in your own house. How can you possibly expect to compete against the PAC 10 champs on the West Coast? NOt gonna happen.

Oregon beat *both* teams who beat you! This is going to be laugher and you know it.

OSU has *never* been competitive against a team that runs the spread and uses the no-huddle.

Why would you ever delude yourself into thinking this game is somehow going to be different?

And that is *before* we consider how LeGarrette BLount needs to have a "statement" game on national TV. The clay-footed OSU defense has made millions for so many other talented offensive players and it will help Mr. Blount move back into the first round.

Way to go Ray Small... way to go...

Let me guess... Tressel is doing this because he is trying to prevent Small from being successful.

WTF! Seriously? What a black eye for the program. It appears that the team just can't get the picture. If I had half the opportunities that these kids have and wasn't making any better decisions, I hope someone would put me out of my misery.

UC doesn't need to win. In fact, tOSU has set the bar so low on the national stage that all we have to do is keep it within 26.

41-14 anyone?

Or would you rather re-live another BCS beatdown, like the 38-24 bomb against LSU? Or maybe, since you'll be back in SoCal, you'd like to relive the 35-3 beatdown USC administered.

Time for fans of "The University of Ohio State" to wake up and smell the coffee. It's the 21st century and the game has passed you and your coach by a long time ago.

Time for Tressel to take this team back to 1-AA where he belongs.

Well, that will be OK considering 6 or 7 of those "kickoffs" will be free kicks after the OSU defense scores safeties.

One can hardly blame JT. He can't keep tabs on these guys 24/7. This may be just another example of trying to keep Ray Small down. I believe this is Delande's second strike also. Two times in the news and never seen the field. Disneyworld will miss you guys. OSU fans won't.
