Undefeated Buckeyes: Shades of Auburn in 1993

Recommended Posts

Ohio State has a national championship quality offense. The same cannot be said about their defense. They were fortunate to beat Michigan.

You know... Michigan played by far their best offensive game of the year and a pretty lowly defensive game. I think Ohio State's defense is a lot better than they looked on Saturday. They'll look like world beaters against MSU's offense, IMO.

Tough call here. I really hate Ohio State. At the same time I get tired of comments like the Auburn AD made about how much of a "disservice" it would be if a 1-loss SEC team was left out.

At the end of the day, I think my dislike of Ohio State trumps my weariness of SEC elitism. Go Sparty!

Any Auburn fan will tell you Jay Jacobs sucks. I've never met anyone that likes him. I cringed after I read that crap.

It's one year later, and once again, Ohio State is undefeated at 11-0.

The difference is that this year, the Buckeyes are eligible for their conference championship, bowl games, and ranking in the coaches' poll (last year, they were only eligible to be ranked in the sportswriters' poll.)

OOThe Buckeyes have two final hurdles before the 2013 postseason schedule is announced ........ their match-up with the Michigan Wolverines tomorrow, and their conference championship game against the Michigan State Spartans next week.

12-0, now.

It was the right idea, but terrible play call. Two WR standing right beside each other. Should've lobbed it to one if their big targets.

**** man, yer boy Al Borges has single handedly lost them three games this year, literally. Penn State, Nebraska (LOL) and Iowa should all have easily been wins.

Al's good for a couple of years, but he never evolved at Auburn. He calls plays without regard for his personnel.

And that, sir, is precisely what he did in those games. Michigan's got a walk on center and two freshman guards bookended by one very good tackle and one shoddy one. They are NOT, (emphasis NOT), not a power team. And then there's the whole thing of all of those teams having 9 guys in the box and Hoke, Borges and Devin Gardner all not realizing that, "Holy **** I-form ISO is probably a bad idea here."

It has been an EXTREMELY frustrating season to watch Michigan. They've got plenty of talent but they're still geared towards the spread, which Hoke & Borges want to get away from. But you know, winning and all should come first.

TWO YEARS LATER:

With a 3rd-string quarterback, Ohio State hammered Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game by a score of 59-0 to vault themselves into the playoffs.

In the semifinal playoff, they defeated top-ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

No Braxton Miller.

No J.T. Barrett.

Cardale Jones and company will take on Oregon for the title on January 12th in Arlington, TX.

    • Good article here: https://www.mlb.com/news/baltimore-orioles-2021-draft-preview Callis: This is not a good Draft for college bats, especially at the top. There is [Louisville catcher] Henry Davis, and then there is a dropoff. But there are four really good high school shortstops. At least a couple of those guys could be available at No. 5. And there's two really good college pitchers in [Vanderbilt righties] Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker. And there's an excellent high school pitcher in [Oklahoma prep righty] Jackson Jobe. … While I don't think it's a deep Draft, I think the Orioles are in a good spot at pick No. 5, where they're going to get a really good player. … Unless they [make some] kind of deal or something, which has been rumored, they're going to get a player who might be on pretty equal footing with the guy who does go number one.
    • Sonny Boy Williamson! My bad. Zepp did it too but just a cover...    
    • Well, you aren’t putting all your eggs in his basket.  They could pay him #1 money and still be able to draft a lot of players they like.
    • Sideys from my newest... First is... an old Muddy Waters? I think...
    • Any rotation with Eshelman doesn't sound stable to me. Means and Zimmerman should have long leashes when they come back. Everyone else could come and go depending on when pitchers are needed. The only thing I expect is inconsistency. 
    • I think Lopez's ultimate role will be as a reliever but I wouldn't take him out of the rotation for Lowther. Lopez has shown much more than Lowther this year. If Harvey was coming out of the rotation it probably would have happened by now. I think they're fine letting him start and bringing the youngsters in to mop-up after him. When you're tanking you have to go all the way with it and Elias is certainly doing that.
