Rob is noted at "RP" and in black. My responses are after "JD" and are in blue.
Behind the scenes/techy dork note: writing emails in GMAIL seem to be terrible. It auto-saves every third word and takes about 20 minutes to type a paragraph. I am trying to figure out what works the best as I try to transfer and update the text, so the format of this thing may be jacked up. Bear with me, or not. Who cares, I’m not getting paid other than these picks. America.
RP: The easy one first:
OSU -35 vs. Buffalo
Because The's schedule sucks, the best route to a national title game is to impress in every. Single. Game. Plust with suspensions to Roby and Hyde, the backups should want to do everything possible to earn playing time for later in the year. And Buffalo...well they're Buffalo.
JD: Agreed. The first games are always tricky because you never know what your team is and the suspensions and the hype and there are just a lot of questions. But...Buffalo isn't going to stop the Buckeyes and the Buckeyes will stop Buffalo. Also, Urban runs his offense with his 1s, 2s, 3s, and random students from the south stands. If it gets 28-0...he's still going to score. I'll be back at the tailgate by the early 4th with this game locked up. Not like Rice or Pitt in the 90s, but I think the Scarley and Gray are looking in the 60s. MACTION will have to wait.
