"Easy" was one word defensive end Kyle Moore used after missing practice two days last week with back spasms before having the game of his life (eight tackles, a fumble recovery, two tackles for loss for 19 yards, including a sack for 15).

"You can tell they don't practice full speed," Moore said of the massive Buckeyes who made it "easy" to fly past them.

"They were still getting into their (first blocking) move, and we'd already be into our second move (on defense) and past them," Moore said.

Okay. We're done now. Really.

Stop saying them, and we'll stop printing them. (HT: Ted Miller's Pac-10 blog.)
