    How come our game summary thread is empty since 2010?

    I have seen a few summaries here and there but I thought it would be cool if we at least posted user vs user summaries in one place so everyone could see and the trash talk or "respectful banter" could commence

    Buckeyes fall to 0-2 after a dominant performance by Arizona's defense!

    TEAM 1st QTR 2nd QTR 3rd QTR 4th QTR FINAL
    Ohio State 0 3 3 0 6
    Arizona 7 3 7 3 20


    Ohio State came into this game looking to control the clock and move the ball on the ground. In their opening possession they drove all the way downfield using a variety of runs, but on their second pass play of the drive Braxton Miller misread the coverage and threw a costly INT. Arizona corner Lawrence Triplett took the INT 57 yards the other way giving the Wildcat offense great field position. Two plays later Junior HB Travis Smith scored on a delay counter from 19 yards out to give Arizona a 7-0 lead.

    After trading a couple punts Arizona came up big again, this time on special teams when Senior wideout David Richards fielded an OSU punt along the sidelines and went 37 yards into OSU territory. OSU's defense would hold the wildcats to a FG with just 44 seconds left in the half. On the ensuing drive, holding no timeouts, the Buckeyes would put together their most impressive drive of the day eventually spiking the ball with one second left and getting a 42 yard FG to end the half down by seven, 10-3.

    Ohio State had a chance to capture the momentum when Arizona QB Corey James threw an ill advised pass that was intercepted by OSU linebacker Ryan Shazier. Despite the great field position, the Ohio State offense was unable to get anything going netting minus 4 yards in 3 plays before nailing a 53 yard FG to close the defecit to 10-6.

    On the ensuing possession Arizona would make perhaps the biggest play of the game. Facing 3rd and 6 on their own 33, James sent Smith in motion out of the backfield. When an OSU LB moved in position to cover him one on one James called a hot route sending Smith on a quick corner route. Smith easily beat the LB and cought the pass for an apparent first down, but he wasn't satisfied with simply keeping the drive alive. Smith would break 4 tackles from the OSU defense and take the simple pass play 67 yards for the touchdown! The score put 'Zona up 17-6 and recaptured the momentum.

    The Wildcats would kick another FG late to make it 20-6 and an interception around the 20 yard line would close out the victory in front of the home crowd. With the win 'Zona gets their season off on the right foot while the Buckeyes lose their second straight game to a Pac 12 opponent to open the year 0-2.

    aarondramp great game man, tough break starting 0-2, GL the rest of the way

    We only post them in the weekly thread, so there isn't really a collection of them. I think we're pretty good about getting something written about every user/user game, but the cpu games are less than 100%.

    We can start setting it up like other OD's do, with weekly stuff. I just always did it this way.
