We've got long time friend of the program Luke aka worstfan on the podcast to talk about the Buckeyes, the Sugar Bowl and of course Ryan Mallett's family arm. Luke's from the Ohio State site Eleven Warriors and so he not only gives us some great analysis on the game but we also talk about this little problem the Buckeyes have had leading up to the game, you might have heard something about it.
With DeVier Posey, Mike Adams, Solomon Thomas, Dan Herron and yes Terrelle Pryor caught up in the "Tatgate" situation we saw some fancy lawyering by the Buckeyes, some "strong arming" by Tressel, lobbying by Sugar Bowl CEO Paul Hoolahan, the NCAA losing out to their own rulebook and of course the proper amount of butthurt complaining to come with it all from fans. Personally if Ohio State found a way to get the kids eligible for the game then good on them, they won and we'll get to see a better Sugar Bowl because of it.
Luke and I also get into a little scheme discussion as the Hogs look to really force the issue with their passing and quickly emerging rushing attack. Knile Davis for the Razorbacks is an added element to this contest that up until two thirds of the season passed we weren't sure was ever going to show itself. Having some ability on the ground makes Mallett and the Hogs receiving core even more dangerous and I expect Bobby Petrino to truly rev up the tempo on the Buckeyes.
On the other side of the ball we'll get to see Pryor, Posey, Herron and company go out to take advantage of a somewhat vulnerable Arkansas defense. The issue here is the same for both teams, we have no idea what we're going to get on that side of the ball. Will Arkansas play the defense they played for much of the Bama and Sakerlina games or will they be the seive like unit they've shown themselves to be in spots? Will Ohio State look to run the ball and use some play action passing or will the Buckeyes try to open things up?
Should be a solid game folks and as you head towards your Monday lunch break enjoy some Diddy Dirty Money.
