It will be very interesting to see how Carrington's suspension impacts this game, both in terms of the psychological impact on his teammates and also the strategy itself. It's not like losing Mariota, but it could be significant. The Ducks will lose some of its speed, and speed is Oregon's game. They still have strength on the lines to be reckoned with, and they've still got big, physical receivers. But the power and size that Oregon has is used to complement their ultimate weapon, which is speed.

Really makes me wonder how long has this kid been on drugs and if others on this team are also drugging up.

Ohio St can match them with speed.

The only issue for me is 1. Ohio St is full of freshmen and sophomores playing. 2. Turnovers.

Oregon to me has only experience over Ohio St. They are not any more talented overall so Ohio Sts only issues would be the above for me.

Does anyone know that if Ohio St wins this game it will be the very first time a team has beaten the top 3 finishers in the Heisman Trophy voting ever?

They destroyed a very good Melvin Gordon and Wisconsin, beat Amari Coopers Alabama team and now have a shot to beat Mariotta.


Anyone here listen to Fox Sports Radio or ESPN.

Funny how all year long the shows kept saying how great Mariotta was and should be the No.1 pick and wins the Heisman. Then they get beat by Arizona and he is done, stock now downhill.

Months later they switch back to Mariotta is so great, he is back in the Heisman running.

Now they are doing it again. All I hear is how Winston is a much better QB then Mariotta and how Mariotta is not a NFL type QB.

These guys change with the wind.


Come on guys, post your picks!!!

Who do you have?


Myself ( being a Buckeye fan I have to go with the more physical, smarter, younger team that no one expected to be here )


Ohio St 44
Oregon 37
Its a very unique situation. Since the 2006 season every year an SEC team were playing in the National Championship game til this 2014 season. Coach Meyer, started it with beating Ohio State and he ended it with Ohio State. Gator fan here, I'm pulling for Ohio State, going to be an interesting game.

Ohio State destroyed a much more talented team a few years back when Kelly was coaching and a far less talented Ohio St team.

Braxton Miller would be one who Oregon could not stop at all if he were playing, hoping Cardell runs and burns them deep.

Urban pulls this off with a 3rd string QB and 6 total starters not playing it will be the best coaching job you will ever witness.

Many like normal dont give the Buckeyes a chance like they did against Alabama, so it will be interesting the game plan for Ohio St with a 3rd string QB.

Getting real excited to see if a young less experienced Ohio St team physically beat up Oregon like they did Alabama and wear down Oregons O line so they can sack Mariotta over and over.

If Ohio St wins this game they will have beaten the SEC champ, the Pac champ and now people can finally just stop the hate and jealousy of Ohio St.

LOL Someone posted above the losses Ohio St has suffered in championship games. So what, at least they got to that game like this one.

This team is loaded with youngsters and talent and if they win or lose, they will win a title very soon and a team with a 3rd string QB does happen to win this the entire college football world will have to wake up knowing Ohio St did this when everyone never thought they had any chance at all.

It is only a distraction if you let it be. For years Oregon has developed a culture that will not allow this to be a distraction. Ohio State is just another faceless opponent and we will move ahead just like we moved ahead when Ifo Elpre-Olumo went down. It has been like this for years. Now, we have the athletes who are not such a huge drop off like in year's past. Next man up!

Here is what still is on the field: over 2400 yards receiving, 24 tds, plus 3000+ rushing yards and 40+ tds. Plus, we have Mariota!

Go Ducks!

Like i said earlier or in another thread, the oregon today is not the oregon of chip kelly or mike belotti era, thou chip and belotti will be creditted in bringing the spread to oregon, the way its played today by oregon is far different and more superior then in the past. If oregon loses they will lose because they beat themselves like they did with arizona. Yes missing carrington is going to challenge us. And in the fla st game, i don't think oregon went full throttle. We will have to wait and see.

Saw on ESPN today that Urban is 5-0 at Ohio State in games where the Buckeyes were the underdog.

At Media Day today, the team was talking about how their defensive practice included lots of aerobic exercise and running plays with a 16-second "shot" clock, to combat Oregon's exteremely fast pacing.

I say Buckeyes by 3 TDs. 42-21

I saw that and what Joey Bosa said.

Meyer isn't that stupid enough to believe 1 single week of practice with aerobic practice is going to be effective. Seriously, think logically, 11 days of wind sprints to combat a team that has been doing it for 6 years is frivolous. USC tried that and they got boat-raced. No, he is going to focus on what the Bucks do well defensively and how he believes his defense will defeat our offense. tOSU may win, but it will not be because they did win sprints for a week. But, I hope they are that stupid.
