Is it safe to say we have an explosive offense?

After checking some articles, I discovered that both the 2005 & 2006 Florida Gator teams never scored more than 49 points, other than a 62-0 victory over Western Carolina when the Gators were ranked #3. So seeing as how Urbans first year as head coach has already produced a 56 point game & this most recent 63 point game over Nebraska, I think we may be on track to become an even more explosive offense than Urban's Florida Gator teams. Keith Marshall & Todd Gurley are both Freshman putting up big numbers for Georgia, how much better will this Buckeyes offense be next year if Ezekiel Elliott, Jalin Marshall, or any other unforeseen future commit produce at the same level for us? I'm very excited, to think that we don't even have the spread option down yet is just scary. 


ON A SIDE NOTE: 63 points. That's awesome, there were about 3 times I was hoping we would go for 2, even if it made no sense to do so. Even in the end, right before we got that last TD, I was alittle mad that we didn't appear to be passing it, but I was pleased with the rushing TD. Here's hoping that the Buckeyes run up the score some more, it's nice to see us assert dominance over other teams like that. This offense may just be hitting it's groove after this game, Indiana is in over their heads next Saturday.

Lol no not yet. Just last week we only scored 17pts. Lets not over-react, but soon we will be....

But in all fairness, that was an away game against a defense that was widely considered the best in the Big 10. We're movin up in the world now

I dunno, let's wait till the end of the season.  I mean Indiana put up 27 in the 1st half against MSU who we only managed 17 pts... although a few TOs in that game pry cost us a coule more scores.  But still.  Let's not overreact but they're getting better each week.

I mean UCLA put up 650+ yards on NEB we didn't even crack 500, and UCLA just got spanked by Cal.. so lets just hold off for now.  NEB D isn't very good.

It's inconsistent as heck, lacks true playmakers at many positions, and the players are only able to run a small percentage of the play book....but my, oh my, look what happens in the drives where it clicks.
next year we will have a flat out sick offense.

When our offense is clicking like it was last night, forget about it.  Explosive.  I don't care how bad Nebraska's D supposedly is.  When's the last time OSU dropped 60+ on a Big Ten opponent?  Ranked opponent?

Class of 2010.

I don't think we have peaked yet, but I sure enjoy watching this kind of football! Urban is a great coach!

No. We have an explosive running QB. Offense is still inconsistent, with a lack of a passing game. 63 points is a good start though. Next year I think we will be able to call this offense explosive.

All that needs to be looked at is how many Field Goals have been attempted this year VS Tressel Ball.

Tressel dropped 73 in 2010..he never had any explosive offenses right?

Against New Mexico State if I recall correctly 
not a fair comparison imo

Eastern Michigan can't compare. Northern Illinois put up 71 against them at the end of the season.

14 off special teams and a pick-6.  "Only" 49 from the offense with however many 3 and outs.

That's a really good point

Well, I guess we all agree that next year they'll really run people over. Gotta love that

i hope some recruits saw or were at the game last night because the atmosphere was electric and the second half was amazing!!

Yeah I hope Von Bell heard about this one, maybe we might convince him to schedule a visit for the Michigan game

it's never safe to use the word explosive in a non-poop setting

The Buckeyes have the potential to be an explosive offense...the running game is pretty good right now(line play is awesome), but the passing game is not there seems like our receivers don't get any separation from the defenders.

Direct quote on ESPN, "If this is what the Buckeyes can do just six games into the Meyer era, the rest of the Big Ten should be very, very concerned."
I'm smiling ear to ear!

Thank you for that.  Vote-up for you!

Just looked at some stats, and the teams we've faced this year all have bad defenses except for Sparty and C.Florida. 
Miami-0- #116
C-Florida- #35
Cal- #51
UAB- #114
M.State- #10
Nebraska- #81
Indiana- #94
What's this mean? Probably that we aren't as good as we think we are. Still a lot better than last season so that's a plus.
