    Predictions!!

    Ok, ok, many of you know I am an OSU fan. Even though I am a fan I will coneed my team is an underdog. The man reason is our QB who is Boeckman. He turns the ball over continuously and cannot run to save his life. If OSU has any chance at all it will be to run Wells nonstop 24/7 all day long. What are the chances of that? All I can hope for is a close game, that is all I ask. How many think this is possible?

    Edit: I must admit I love being an underdog. This mentality can only work in our favor. Hopefully, having OSU the underdog will give LSU a big head and not take them seriously.

    I will coneed your team as an underdog, and your man reason, whatever that is.

    LSU 44
    OSU 7

    Of coarse, the only wild card is our defense. How good is it? The numbers are good but what will they be like against SEC speed? I wish I could see on paper who is faster. I think that would be the most telling statistic.

    Edit: I hope Illinios hangs in there aganst USC as well. These games are important for the Big Ten. I think if both OSU and Illinios gets blown out again this year that this will do irreputable damage to the image of the Big Ten. As far as that team up north against Florida, I have no hope for them. That will be the most lopsided score of them all!!

    LSU was just run over by a Wild Hog. They should know better then to underestimate OSU. The team that wins should be the team that wants it the most.

    Over estimating OSU is even worse, it's last year all over again.

    I agree with Smookie. But to change it up, and be nicer to OSU:

    LSU: 31
    OSU: 7

    OMG! They are! I mean, look at them! They beat, say, Youngstown like 40 - 0! What an upset!

    Wrong; LSU will slaughter. Everyone is downplaying the Buckeyes great SCHEDULE.

    Well I was hoping for a little closer score than last years 41-14 against Florida. Thanks for noth'in!!

    Actually, I think the Buckeyes will do better against LSU than Florida. The main reason in the QB situation. OSU was dumbstruck last year by this years Hieseman winning QB Tebo because he was a mobile QB with a good arm and they used a spread offense. LSU, on the other hand, does not have as good a QB and to my knowledge they do not use the spread attack. For these reasons I believe OSU will do better this year. Conversely, OSU does not have as good of a QB this year with Boeckeman compared to last years Heiseman winning QB Troy Smith. However, I think a better defense is ALWAYS better than a better offense.

    Spread offense or not, your loyalty to the buckeyes is noble. My team plays the Wolverines, and hopefully they'll come out on top. I'm sorry, I can't see any way that OSU will beat LSU, but I have been wrong...

    You think that OSU cannot do what a Wild Hog did?

    Are you prepared to say that Arkansas has a better offense then OSU has? Perhaps you think that LSU will play a better defensive game then they played against Arkansas?
