    If we are so bad, why does mighty Penn State only have a 25% chance to beat us.............

    They are a solid team, but the media pumping them as Bama-lite and Barkley as the 2nd coming of Hershel Walker is enough already. I hope JT continues to play well...this is where we separate the Rutgers from the true opponents coming up on the schedule.

    The key to the game will be stopping Barkley and our ability to run the ball...........

    Their one concern is the offensive line and that plays into our overall strength.....

    We're going to obliterate them. There hasn't been a more overrated team in CFB over the past two years.

    Outside of some MAJOR special teams blunders and a badly timed int (freak rain storm), be were absolutely dominating them last year.

    Getting them after a bye week? This is gonna be fun to watch.

    Not to mention, their close loss to USC in the Rose Bowl last year doesn't really look that good anymore. The Trojans should have lost to unranked Utah and did lose to Wazzu, that just got destroyed by Cal...

    My score prediction is:

    OSU - 38
    PSU - 16

    Not that I put much stock in the Coaches poll, but if we win this game, we are back in the NC conversation, no matter what happened vs Oklahoma or to Oklahoma after. Everybody remembers VT in 2014. It certainly won't hurt if Wisconsin is still undefeated when we beat them in the B1G championship game.

    Just Win Baby.

    I don't care about being in the conversation in October. If we win out, we're in. It's that simple. Voters will not leave out a 1-loss Ohio State team whose single loss was an early season game against a top 5 opponent. That just won't happen.

    Back to my favorite saying ... Just win, baby.

    I don't hate it. I wish the stripes were red and they lost the fur pattern in the numbers.

    So Ohio State can't be good until they beat Penn State but Penn State is good because they've beaten Akron, Pitt, GA St, Iowa, Indy, and NW?

    If the number was black or Scarlett it would be much better. I'm also not a fan of the these being for. 2016, a season the buckeyes are trying to get over and move on from

    Meyer said all the players who suffered injuries against Nebraska (Jamarco Jones, Parris Campbell, Jalyn Holmes) are "all probable" for the matchup against Penn State.

    Ohio State safety Jordan Fuller says he thinks Penn State's Mike Gesicki is "one of the best, if not the best, tight ends in the country."

    That's a good point.

    Another issue: the numbers may be illegal. If the referees deem that there isn't enough contrast to easily make-out the numbers, the team is charged a time-out every quarter that they wear the illegal jerseys.

    I'm honestly holding out hope that Nike is trolling is with these uniforms, and that we come out in Black again.

    These are horrendous.
