    BUCKEYES OVERCOME 21 POINT DEFICIT TO BEAT BOILERS IN OVERTIME

    There are a few undeniable truths in this world. Death, taxes, and for the Ohio State football program, close contests against the University of Purdue. Though the Boilermakers have struggled ever since the days of Drew Brees, and the Buckeyes have been the class of the conference in the same time frame, when the two programs meet records are thrown out the window, and Ohio State is almost always given a scare. That was the case on a rainy Saturday night in Ohio Stadium, as Purdue nearly pulled off the upset of 2015.

    The catalyst to Purdue's success was halfback Ty Isaac. The talented tailback, who defected from USC after receiving little playing time as a freshman in 2013, was brilliant all night for the Boilers, gashing the vaunted Buckeye defense for 180 yards of total offense and a score. With Isaac carving holes the the Buckeyes front seven like a hot knife slicing through butter, and the badgers arial attack hitting route after route, the Buckeyes quickly dug themselves a 31-13 hole with :33 left in the first half.

    Sensing a need to change momentum, coach Speyer elected to let JT Barrett drive the offense downfield for a quick score prior to halftime. The gamble paid off, as Barrett connected on four straight passes to put the Buckeyes in the end zone. The last play was a spectacular play by Dontre Wilson, who skied for the ball, broke a tackle in mid air and race toward the end zone to cut the margin. It was a highlight reel play for the Heisman candidate, but Wilson wasn't done quite yet.

    The third quarter played out much like the first two, with Isaac carving through OSU's defense and the Buckeyes failing to consistently move the ball. With the score at 41-20 in the waning minutes of the third quarter, it appeared that the Buckeyes were ready to give up. Then Dontre Wilson turned the tide by ripping off a 34 yard run to put the Buckeyes in the red zone. Two plays latter Aaron Jenkins finished off the drive with a two yard score.

    In the first drive of the fourth quarter, the Silver Bullets finally got their act together and forced Purdue to punt. It was the first time OSU forced the opposition to punt, and it proved to be the most pivotal moment of the game. With the Buckeyes showing little life in the passing game, it was clear they needed a big play to really have a shot to pull off the comeback. Jalin Marshall gave Ohio State that shot, by dekeing several defenders and racing into the endzone for a 57-yard punt return.

    With momentum now in hand, the Buckeye defense rose to the challenge once again and forced a three and out. The Buckeyes marched down field, running the ball on every down, and finding the end zone on a Dontre Wilson jet sweep from three yards out on third and goal to force overtime.

    In extra play Wilson ripped off an 18-yard score to send Ohio Stadium into an absolute frenzy. A deflated Purdue squad was on the field for just one play, as Eli Apple made a tip-toe interception on the left boundry to seal the win and increase the OSU winning streak to 21 games. The school record is 22, which was set in 1967-1969. The Buckeyes are off next week with their final bye of the season.

    No, he's not throwing the ball. That's Dontre Wilson hauling in a catch and breaking a tackle in mid air

    Nice, estimated time?

    For the new guys -- when you won't be getting your game in the first 24 hours of the advance cycle, please post in the week's thread exactly when you will be planning to play asap. Thanks!

    The soft cap is 24 hours and the hard cap is 36, but most people in this league are able to get in their cpu games on a daily basis. The reason I ask for an estimated time if you're not playing within 24 is that then we know an ETA for the upcoming advance and the users who have user games the following week can prematurely schedule those

    We run a Chip Kelly No Huddle Advance Schedule here. That's why we are in year 3 here and still in year 1 in my other dynasty!

    Yeah it's not for everybody but we have a group that's committed enough to move at this pace. I hope we can do around 10 seasons at least this cycle, think we did 9 last year

    ATM vs Bama

    Trey Williams take it to the house!

    The Tide Rolls early but ATM Prevails
    I was amazed when I saw that Bama was coming into this game with a 2-3 record. They are still highly rated, with multiple 99 OVR players. They apparently have just gotten hosed with the CPU sims. I was smart enough not to expect them to roll over for me though. Bama came out steam rolling my defense. Bama QB Alec Morris was lights out, completing his first 10 passes and marching down the field to score the first 14 points. Matt Davis was 2/8 with two picks at halftime. On his second pick of the game he had his TE wide open but the ball floated straight to the opposing safety. Coach decided to shut down the passing game early to prevent a nightmare like the Arkansas game. They stayed patient and ran the ball as much as possible early.

    About midway through the second quarter the patience, and the defense, payed off. Matt Davis partially redeemed his poor passing effort by breaking off a 54 yard run. After forcing Bamas first punt of the game Davis threw his best pass of the game, hitting a streaking Trey Williams for a 41 yard TD to tie the score. Then the defense did their part
    Sophomore starting corner Noel Ellis showed why he is one of the Impact Players on defense. He picked off Morris on two drives in a row setting up short field position for two easy TDs. The score went from 14-0 Bama to 28-14 ATM in 2 minutes and 40 seconds of game time. Bama would mount a late drive and hit a field goal at the end of the first but the Tide had turned.

    Bama is still Bama though, and the did not give up in the second half. After throwing three picks in the first half Alec Morris regained his composure and distributed the ball all over the field. Surprisingly 99 OVR TJ Yeldon (Yes, he's inexplicably there for his senior season) was rather ineffective. Most of it was due to blocking, with Yeldon getting caught in the backfield multiple times and just not having the holes he's had in the past. Bama also threw the ball 43 times for 376 yards because they were behind.

    Bama would lead some solid drives and make some solid stops on defense, but they weren't able to prevent the Aggies from scoring 2 insurance TDs in the second half to keep the lead. In the end they ran out of time and could not catch up.

    Bama ended up with more total yards due to their huge passing numbers and they even won the time of possession, but ATM dominated on the ground and
    Coach HipHopps decision to pass only when necessary worked out. Matt Davis almost had more yards rushing than passing.
