    Let me start by saying that I'm glad we got the win! What scares me is that I hope our guys don't assume they can play down like that and still win big for the next 5 Saturdays. That could bite us in the ass.

    That being said, Troy managed the game well and looked sharp. It makes me cringe to see Quinn throw for 3 TD's and alomst 300 yards. I have no doubt that Troy is the better QB and I hope he doesn't get robbed of the Heisman for being a victim of our system. Don't get me wrong, the system works for winning games, it just doesn't necessarily showcase a QB's abilities.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    I don't understand this talk of "playing down" to Bowling Green. Did you expect a touchdown pass on every play? Did you expect the defense to keep Bowling Green without a first down?

    The Buckeyes quickly and easily drove down the field for a touchdown. Then, maybe the defense was being a little conservative on BG's first drive, but why not? Why play aggressive and let BG take advantage of a slip by a defensive back? The defense kept with their "bend but don't break" philosophy, and held Bowling (Orange) to a long field goal attempt. The next drive, Ohio State shot themselves in the foot a little, getting penalized 15 yards, and looking at a third-and-25. After Smith scrambled for the first down, it was an easy touchdown. Then, OH NO! The players must be taking plays off! Ohio State had to punt on their next possession! But they got the ball back and scored another easy touchdown. Then another punt (we're doomed!), and then sometime later Zwick came in.

    Zwick, by the way, I think played pretty well. He was 1-for-4 on that drive, with his receivers dropping 2 passes. It looked like he threw the ball away on the one pass, but I think it was Robiskie who at least COULD have caught the one, and then Gonzalez, of all people, SHOULD have caught his fourth-down pass. Anyway, halftime score was 21-0.

    The only part that bothered me was Bowling Green's first drive of the third quarter. 59 plays for 85 yards, and 8-1/2 minutes off the clock. Ohio State has to play better defense than that. But the offense came back out and drove right down the field for a touchdown. Then, the very next offensive play for Ohio State was another touchdown. 35-7.

    What more could you want?

    Good win, as expected........but I'd be lieing if I didn't say that I was disappointed with our offensive line play yesterday, especially in pass protection.

    Our defense also didn't get enough pressure on BG's qb........ It seemed like the boys were going through the motions yesterday. We can't do that next week at Michigan St. they could sneak up and beat us, that's no joke.
