    And others pointed out it was a passing down, Tressel trusts this QB & offense more than previous units, and a sack would not have spoiled the FG chances.

    True , true jwin. we were looking at it like Jt's penchant for not running up the score, and the fact that the preceeding plays were runs

    Yertle Pounding out aggression, turns into obsession

    I just watched the Iowa game again, and I'm EXTREMELY impressed with how this team handles itself mentally. We always talk about the huge talent on the offense, and the raw speed and power on the defense, but I am most impressed with the mental toughness and the sportmanship of this team.

    I remember feeling a little ashamed of the punk attitudes a few of the late-Cooper teams displayed. It was tough defending the Buckeyes to other fans from time to time.

    But, in this game, we saw Pittman get stepped on after the play, tackled out of bounds, stood over in the classic intimidation pose (after an 8 yard gain too...). How did he respond? Late in the third quarter, he reached down and helped an Iowa defender to his feet. Class.

    Troy NEVER accepts credit for his play. He thanks the line, mentions that Robo made an outstanding play, and all he's doing is following the reads and plays that the coaching staff taught him. Class.

    This team is never rattled, even under the most intimidating enviornments in college football. They are mentally prepared and focused for each game. Sure, they can be flat from time to time (Cincy), but I truly believe they are mentally in the game each and every time.

    I love the way this team is physically dominating the best teams in the country, but I love the way they are mentally dominating them even more. That's called great coaching!

    400-plus bought fake OSU tickets

    Associated Press

    Tuesday, October 03, 2006

    IOWA CITY, Iowa ? More than 400 people were turned away from Saturday's sold-out Ohio State-Iowa football game because they had unwittingly bought counterfeit tickets, university officials said Monday.
    Ticket Manager David Sandstrum said fans who bought the fake tickets were bilked out of as much as $100,000.
    Police arrested three out-of-state men on Saturday and accused them of selling fake tickets.
    "This is the first time I'm aware of someone selling fake ... tickets," said Capt. Larry Langley of the university police department.
    Demitrus Williams, 29, of Bronx, N.Y., is accused of forgery, fourth-degree criminal mischief and obstructing emergency communications, police said.
    Calvin Harris of Apopka, Fla., and Kevin Bryant of Decatur, Ga., also were arrested and accused of selling fake tickets, Langley said.

    Well Captain Larry, this is the first time in a long while you had a game worth making fake tickets....

    I agree, Yertle.

    I remember a few of those teams, and cringe. I can remember one game that had me so angry with their punkish attitutdes, I turned the TV off.

    JT has kept his teams in line, and you can't help but repsect what he has done.

    There is a certain Outback Bowl that comes to mind for me.

    The Penn State game that year was the last straw for me. Already up by a gazillion points, the first play after Taliaferro is ambulanced off the field Coop has the 3rd string QB throwing into the endzone. I was livid.

    Hey, Doug!

    Tuesday, October 03, 2006

    Q: Hey, Doug: How come you were so far off in predicting the OSU-Iowa game? You're supposed to be a specialist at OSU football and yet you picked Iowa to win. -- Chris Hudson, Olmsted Falls
    A: Hey, Chris: That was actu ally a typo. It said Iowa 24, Ohio State 21 in the paper, but I meant Ohio State 38, Iowa 17.
    Not buying that? It came down to this: I thought Iowa would play its best in a big home game and Ohio State would not play its best in a tough road game. The reverse happened, and Ohio State got to Iowa quarterback Drew Tate just like every other quarterback they faced this year.
    Q: Hey, Doug: Why doesn't Ohio State use Ted Ginn Jr. in the backfield, like Penn State uses Derrick Williams, and why am I the only one that's worried about the Michigan State game? -- Christopher Wallace, Atlanta
    A: Hey, Christopher: I think it's part of the idea that Ginn is a real receiver now, not a track star/defensive back/ do-it-all hybrid. He's the No. 1 receiving option, which he wasn't in previous years. And the Buckeyes run quick passes and crossing routes with Ginn that provide him the opportunity to run in the open field, so they don't need to try to use him in the backfield.
    I'm sure there's a big reverse to Ginn lurking in the game plan -- maybe for the bowl game. You're the only one worried about Mich igan State because the talented Spartans have begun their annual disintegration.
    Q: Hey, Doug: I thought I heard the Buckeyes have a game this season at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Is this correct? -- Bryan Peters, Parma
    A: Hey, Bryan: You're jump ing the gun a bit. Ohio State will play Toledo on Sept. 19, 2009, at Browns Stadium.

    That one too. If I am remembering right, they played like thugs too. Unsportsmen like conduct the whole nine yards.

    That is why I am loving the Coach's teams. They may come in like thugs, but they go out as men.
