I was at the game in 99 in the shoe when Ron Dayne ran for 2,000 second half yards against the bucks... hopefully the D doesn't tire Saturday like they did in 99.

As a buckeye fan, this guy is scary. He has become a beast. This is going to give our D-Line and LB corp a true test. If we can contain him and make Wisconsin go to the air, we should be able to force turnovers and handle this game. But this guy is unpredictable and is most of the reason that Wisconsin should be ranked.

Watched the Minn/Wis game last week. Clay got most of his yards in the 2nd half after initial contact. First half they had 8 in box and they passed with ease. The best defense for Ohio is a time controlling Offense so as to keep their guy's fresh when Wis has the ball. Looking forward to the game.

Only difference here is our front line is much better than Minn...we won't have to stack all 8 in the box to contain him and our secondary is much better so they won't pass near as easily...should be able to pull out a controlling win this weekend, but with Wisconsin you never know.

I was wondering if you knew what happened to (big back) Carlos Hyde? I found on the net that he committed to OSU, but he is not on their roster and no one has said a word about him when the Buckeye running back depth chart is discussed. I thought he was supposed to be the next Beanie Wells.

Can someone enlighten me please?
