A beautiful Friday morning to you all from Columbus- where we have moved beyond last week’s game and are getting ready to start a new Ohio State winning streak!
NO, the Buzz will not be charging as much as APPLE does to communicate with you and bring you all the latest Ohio State news….but we would like too. I guess maybe we should keep updating our version of the Buzz and charge more?
It is time to start winning.
Not a ton of big games this weekend (until we get into the conference full force) but there are some of interest so here we go…
Air Force @ Michigan
Just like Ohio State on Saturday, Mi##igan will also face a triple option running team in Air Force. While that type of offense is hard to adjust to, Mi##igan’s run defense is their strength. The Wolverines are still a little upset, and I believe have used as motivation, the fact that everyone said they were over rated at the start of the season. You know from past Buzz’s some of my cousins attended the Air Force Academy and I love the Falcons toughness- but sorry guys Mi##igan has too much…Wolverines- 42 Falcons- 17
ND @ Boston College
The battle of two big Catholic schools takes place in Chestnut Hill. Did you know that Chestnut Hill was developed by the same person who developed central park in New York?—Fredrick Olmsted…. See the Buzz not only gives you great sports analysis but we educate you as well! Both teams enter (1-1) and both teams will be fired up to play in this traditional battle. Again the odds makers say Irish big- but the Buzz has a sneaky feeling that the Eagles play well…Boston College- 27 ND- 24
Tennessee @ Florida
You remember this game used to be played at a neutral site (Jacksonville) but it will be played @ Florida this weekend. The Gators, after being crushed by Mi##igan, had last week’s game cancelled due to the Hurricane. I watched Tennessee against Georgia Tech on opening night and honestly they should have lost. BOTH…and yes I said BOTH offenses are bad. This shapes up to be a low scoring defensive affair. I look for Florida to come up with a late defensive play to be the difference- Gators- 18 Tennessee-14
The Buzz also likes…
Oklahoma… is this the year that they don’t have their normal bad game or two and run the table?…we won’t know for a few weeks but they will crush Tulane…(Oklahoma- 50 Tulane- 13)…also look for Alabama and their complaining head coach Nick Saban to blast Colorado State- (Bama- 47 Colorado State-10)
Upset Special of the Day…
That’s right…Kentucky travels to over South Carolina to take on the Gamecocks. Both teams unbeaten (2-0) but UK has looked better. CATS go on the road for this one Kentucky- 24 South Carolina- 21
BIG Rivalry Game…(Miami of Ohio vs. Cincinnati)
The BATTLE FOR THE VICTORY BELL is actually the OLDEST current non-conference rivalry in college football dating back to 1888 in Oxford, Ohio. Cincinnati has won 11 in a row…that ends Saturday- Miami of Ohio- 30 Cincinnati- 24
Texas @ USC
The Trojans looked much better against Stanford last week but that was a big conference game so they were fired up. This week the Buzz looks for a little letdown. NO they are not going to lose but Tom Herman and Texas keep it closer than the experts think..Trojans- 40 Texas- 34
Game of the Day
Clemson @ Louisville
Okay it should be a fun night in the city know for the Kentucky Derby since there are some thoroughbreds in this one as well.
Louisville has the current Heisman winner in Jackson. They owe Clemson one for last year loss and this game is at home. The Cardinals offense has been rolling and with a month of easy games coming up, a win here and they take control of the ACC
Yes, we know Clemson is the defending National Champions– and I actually think their defense has improved from a year ago. Clemson has recruited well and like Ohio State they have players waiting to get in the line-up.
I know the experts are leaning Louisville…but I believe Clemson is really good…I’m taking the Tigers. Clemson- 38 Louisville- 21
Real Game of the Day (Army @ Ohio State)
Like Air Force earlier I have nothing but RESPECT for Army. What they do OUTSIDE of a football game cannot be appreciated more by the Buzz.
But, this game is NOT about Army—this is about Ohio State fixing things and getting things right. The score on Saturday makes NO difference. With a relatively soft schedule for the next month of games it is time for the Buckeyes to get back the swagger and get on a roll.
It starts one game at a time. Don’t worry about moving up in the polls right now just get better.
The process of becoming a REAL TEAM starts on Saturday.. Ohio State- 47 Army-17
Proud to be a Buckeye…
Here’s to (2-1)..
