OSU vs. Buffalo Prediction

This Saturday marks opening day for College Football! Arguably one of the greatest days of the year. As an ongoing series, I’m going to put a mythical $100 on the Buckeyes all year and see where I would land if gambling were legal.

The Buckeyes week 1 Opponent is the University of Buffalo or Buffalo University or Buffalo College?…. I’m not sure if Buffalo is division 1 or 2. I don’t know their mascot. I don’t even know what colors they wear. That doesn’t bode well for their chances against an Ohio State team with huge expectations. The Las Vegas line has OSU favored by either 35 or 36 and has the over/under at 55.5 (all lines come from this app). This seems like a trap bet because OSU should score more than 55.5 by themselves. I also think the defense will step up so…. with that said… my official bets would be:

Over/Under – $100 on the Over

Line – $100 on OSU to cover

If you have any thoughts on the game or on the bets, feel free to drop a note in the comments.

Pryor… Really?

OSU just lost to Purdue… I’ve already received numerous text about how Tressel should give up playcalling and whatnot…  That wasn’t my problem with the coaching. My problem was leaving Pryor in the game. At one point, he had fumbled 3 times (2 lost) and thrown 2 interceptions… that’s 4 turnovers by one player… and yet Tressel kept putting him back on the field. I said at halftime that Bauserman should start the first series of the second half, then turn it back over to Pryor…

There’s no question that he has ability, but how long can Ohio State keep waiting for that ability to come to fruition?… there are a lot of players at Ohio State who have tremendous ability… Duron Carter is going to be a superstar, but it wouldn’t  be appropriate for Ohio State to thrust him into the #1 receiver role… the same thing should happen with Pryor… Bauserman should get an opportunity… if he excels, then Pryor should sit back and develop during practice rather than losing to one of the worst teams in the Big 10.
