Lot of colorful commentary on THE GAME tomorrow, but I would like to see what you all think the ONE key to The Game is for Ohio State. What one thing do they need to do to have the greatest chance for success? Let's just try to keep it to one point, and make it quick so we can all get fast info, how we all like it baby! Obviously, you can do whatever you want though, lol. Ok, I'll start...
Pressure the HELL out of Gardner. Force him to make quick decisions, this will lead him to make costly mistakes. He is a green QB back there with little experience in a hostile environment. Pressure Pressure Pressure!
This^^^^. If Gardner is QB, blitz. If Robinson is in, set the edge an force him inside so he takes shots.
Force and win the TO battle.
Have more big plays than they do because I feel we are much better prepared to grind out some long drives if we will just feed Hyde and let him smash some scum ass.

Good days, bad days --- always a Buckeye. Time to begin the assault on the 2014 BCS National Championship
If Robinson is playing RB then we have to make sure we are assignment sound on defense and set the edge to keep him from getting outside. On offense, we need to work the middle of the field through running with Hyde and passes to our TEs. The thing I noticed in the Wisconsin game is they did a great job of keeping Miller inside the tackle box and a way to beat that is to work plays right up the middle. If we do that they will have to respect that and will give Miller more room to work.
A quick start.
If Ohio State scores 14 or more in the first quarter, they win, easily.
We need better play from our safeties in this game, can't afford to be late breaking on the arm punts, or passes from Gardner.
I think both teams have good players so the team with the best coaching wins. Best game plan,best adjustments,best play calls.etc.
Limit the big plays via trickeration (or even simple misdirection) with having Gardner and Denard in their backfield together.
You can't handle the truth
Someone besides Braxton doing something offensively. Whether it Hyde or the WRs/TEs/Pass catchers or whatever doesn't matter, but we need to do more than run the inverted veer, the inside ZR or QB Draw.
30 points. We get 30, we win.
Offense can't be one dimensional. I think the defense is ready to have one of their best games of the season. Offense needs to get Bitchigan on ther heels and keep them there.
Accurate passes from Braxton
Hyde hasnt really been shut down as of late, if we feed him the ball and open up the short pass plays. We will be fine on O. Not to mention Brax.
Three first downs on the first possession. Braxton needs to generate offense and take the initiative to force TtUN to react. That starts on the first drive.
O-Line PUSH....all game!

Defensive line speed!
