Therefore: OSU 26 LSU 23
What does tOSU have?...just a stingy defense, they graduated the key players from last yrs offense....however, they played no one this year that was ranked in the top 20 at the time they played them.
Actually the only one who grauated was Troy Smith. The rest left early and that is why the Bucks were pre-season ranked 12. However, if you have watched a single down of OSU football this year you know that the scrubs who replaced those guys aren't too bad.
Get a clue.
This will be a close game decided by special teams and two great defenses. I would say that LSU will struggle to move the ball due to the amount of pressure the Buckeyes will be able to put on Hester and Flynn. The biggest question is... can the OSU line handle Dorsey and Co. to get the running game going. If Wells gets it rolling, the LSU offense may not have enough chances to do any real damage.
tOSU - 17
LSU has too much speed and too many playmakers. I don't think tOSU is as "good" as last year's team. LSU's defense is healthy again - that will make the biggest difference.
Hey after this year, who knows
LSU and OSU are both well coached and have great athletes, however, I think Ohio State has a much more dominant defence, and a better running game. Boeckman is probably the best unknown QB in college football, and doesnt get the recognition he deserves. Flynn has succumed to pressure twice this season. I think when the crap hits the fan a loaded OSU team will pull it off. I think they will feed off the motivation of getting embarrassed last season by Florida. A loss in this game undoes the legacy Tressel has created at Ohio State. These seniors will find a way to dominate the game inside and propel the buckeyes to victory. My final score prediction is:
Ohio State - 27
LSU - 21
Boeckman will have his coming out party on the bayou.
Ok this was Entertaining-- but Some Fans of both LSU and OSU were reasonable... but you gotta laugh at the Peeps that say 20 point or more blowout EITHER way... I agree with Fans that don't see either team scoring OVER 30... OSU and LSU defenses are GOOD.. Only turnovers can account for a BIG margin of victory... As of December 3, LSU and OSU were the TWO best teams... BCS got it right... Case closed... as my OSU friends may think not everyone is whining crying, etc
My prediction 17-14 OSU... Better defense and ability to prevent "big plays"... not sold on LSU Q Back duo either... It will be a good game!!! I will eat crow if LSU beats down OSU by 20 Trust me!!! But I expect LSU fan to show respect IF the lose and become one of the best 3 loss Teams!!
Ohio State - 27
LSU - 17
Now introducing Marcus Freeman... remember this name!!!
i predict LSU will be up by 10+/- pts in the 3rd quarter and blow it. OSU 31-24.
Since I'll have to eat crow if I'm wrong, I'll get in the buffet line. We've been going round this thing for a year now, what's a little more?
Tressel pulls out all the stops in this game. Beanie Wells 140 yds rushing, Boeckman 310 passing, Ray Small breaks out with 110 yds receiving and 225 all purpose yards and 3 tds. There will be no knees taken to run out the clock, 60 minutes of full out smashin', bashin', hittin' and gittin'.
Are you serious? LOL Whatever drugs you are on, pass some this way!
Lsu hasn't seen this good of a Defense all year and his sloppy play calling will cost him!
Beanie will blow right by Dorsey anbd the rest of the D.You will also get to see how good the qb really is ....Just watch Robiskie blow by everyone.Doucet will be shown how overrated he really is.All year they said how Osu had a cupcake season.Well take this in account Florida went to Ot with LSU and Florida went on to lose to Michigan.Letting them score some 40 some points.I forget the score.All in All they scored three against Osu and Osu beat them and never even had to throw the ball.Score 24-9 Osu win.
They should have let Georgia or Usc play in this game Lsu even at home cant beat OSU's very young team.
Gholston sack in the endzone for the game winner!
LSU - 31
tOSU - 10
Looking forward to having Bo in Lincoln next year. Never thought I'd say this, but Geaux Tigers!
What I want - LSU 45 OSU 10
What I think - OSU 24 LSU 21
My gut tells me Tressel gets it done; I just don't trust Miles when it comes to big decisions.
Also, I know this is probably an obvious statement, but I think it really comes down to the QB. Not too impressed by either one yet, although Perriloux (sp.) may be the difference.
I hate OSU, but if they do win, hopefully little Animal goes to the NFL early (I am sick and tired of hearing about him).
