The real Buckeyes finally stand up

That was a beatdown against Minnesota. I’m a little surprised that the defense gave up 31 points, especially that early in the game (aside from the garbage time TD, most of it was in the first 20 minutes of the game), but I guess you can’t shut everybody down completely. The team that won today is probably what Tressel had in mind when he went with Troy Smith at QB. And Ted Ginn appears to be back, for real, too.

Didn’t look much like Ohio State football, though, did it? Big play here, big play there, huge chunks of offense in rapid succession. Too bad this wasn’t on the field against Texas and Penn State.
