I was pretty close last week, with the MSU upset bid, I'll go Iowa pinches em in the mouth early and doesnt look back.

I claimed tOSU would drop 50 on Purdont, was off by a point...I'll conservatively say The Bucks by 45.

Those were some pretty sexy style points.

Ya know even though they dropped 49, I didnt think they looked all that great. I think TP is still nursing that Thigh but no one will admit it..publicly ;)

I didn't see any of the Cal/USC game? Was USC's defense dominant or did Cal's offense implode?

I'm not sure Iowa has the finesse to pinch MSU in the mouth....


They will hit the sparties pretty hard though.

ESPN didn't show many highlights, was TP gimpy all game? If so, pretty amazing to win that big without a 100% QB.

How big of a deal would losing to Baylor be-are they actually considered rivals by Texas fans?

Yo 84. If memory serves, with a quad injury, it takes weeks (if not months) to heal, and that with complete rest. TP will continue to be hampered until the end of the season, I'm afraid.The plus side is that he may be forced to become that pocket passer that he's been wanting to be. It also pushes the Buckeye offense to run Boom, Hyde, and Berry more. Maybe a reversion to Pro-I with Zack Boren lead blocking is the cure that they need.Note that I didn't mention B. Saine @ RB. Keep him at 'H' back and put another receiver threat in there to take some of the load off Posey and Sanzenbacher. Get Stoneburner healthy, too.I'm confident the Vest will make the necessary adjustments to Pryor's gimpyness.

You are right about a bum quad. I think another "light" game in MInnesota playing only a couple quarters will help and then the bye week. Could be better come PSU... we'll see.

He's not gimpy, but he's not full speed. You can tell he isn't getting a push off that sore leg.

Good catch on the pinches...It is Iowa and MSU, so there very well could be some pinching going on, bunch of pansies!

Quad!

Who can call it with the way this year is turning out I mean really the early game was Iowa St vs Texas. Figured hay it'll be a blow out so did some work around the house till Okie St n Neb came on JRM you are right not only grow up but someone needs to step up into that leadership role, thought Gilbert was going to do it after the Neb game but looks rough for Texas. Me I want Neb to win but when your team doesn't take advantage of the home crowd. Neb has to stop the run it will be a great game. But like I said since about week 3 there is just no team out there who can't be beat.

Contrast that with the UM game---Rushing: Pryor 20/113 yards/1TD. Versus Illinois---Rushing: Pryor 11/104 until he got hurt.Now TP's rushing yardage is almost non-existent.

exactly
and he stated all year that he wanted to be a 1000 yard rusher, but now he doesnt even mention it...little birdie told me, they shut him down on purpose.
