How do you stop the Clemson Tigers Deshaun Watson if he gets his legs churning?

If we are talking about this, then The Ohio State Defense is talking about it too – how do you stop the Clemson Tigers Deshaun Watson if he gets his legs churning?

In the 2014 Orange Bowl​ match-up between Clemson and Ohio State, Clemson Quarterback Tajh Boyd completed 31 of 40 Passes for 378 yards, 5 TD’s, and 2 INT’s. Boyd also led the Tigers in rushing with 127 yards and 1 TD.  It is very likely that The Bucks may see a similar script in the Fiesta Bowl​.

This CBS Sports​ article gives a good explanation of the quandary the the Buckeyes Defense will face.

Drop us a note on how you think the Buckeyes can stop Watson to FireandBrimmstone@gmail.com .

Enjoy!

Michigan and Ohio State was the Game of the Day if not the Game of the Season!

Michigan and Ohio State was the Game of the Day if not the Game of the Season!  We are sure there were folks all the way from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the Ohio River in southern Ohio hyperventilating during this game – LOL!  Well, a person that had a great reaction was Urban Meyer who dropped to the field after the Win!  Jim Harbaugh also had a reaction – but that was in the post game press conference – he was not happy with the officiating.  We think he had a point.  A bummer that a Team had to Lose this one.  Kudos to both for a great game!

Now it is time to ask the Big Question – Does a 1 Loss Ohio State advance to the College Football Playoffs ahead of a 2 Loss Big Ten Champion – either Wisconsin or Penn State?

What are your thoughts about Ohio State advancing?  Drop us a note at FireandBrimmstone@gmail.com .

Enjoy!

The Week 12 College Football Playoff Rankings were released on Tuesday Night and You have to Love those Fall Colors!  

The Top Four of #1 Alabama, #2 Ohio State, #3 Michigan, and #4 Clemson all remained the same, but #5 Louisville completely fell out of the picture after the Houston Cougars just at the Cardinals Up!  The beneficiaries of that were Washington and Wisconsin who moved up to the #5 and #6.  And how about the Big Ten with 3 Teams in the Top 6 Slots!  

Now, the lifespan for this board will be only one week since we have a few Monster Games on this week’s schedule!

  • Of course, The Game everyone will be watching on Saturday at Noon – #3 Michigan visits #2 Ohio State in the Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio!  It doesn’t get any bigger than this!
