Remember the excitement of the "bull in the ring"? Then the Spring Game started and then we caught our 1st glimpse of a Meyer Buckeye offense! We saw pass after pass after pass. They were nice short passes which moved us down the field. I loved how we used 4 and 5 WR sets to spread the field. We need to see that again. I hope with Hyde back, we will see Hyde and Hall on the field at the same time. We can't get complacent on offense and continue to have 3 and outs back to back.
2 names, Michael Thomas and Tyrone Williams, I wish they could get it together! Williams is 6'5 and has speed. He should have been the WR coaches project over the spring.
I have seen several people post that we are running and should continue to keep running Heacock's defensive scheme. There is only 1 problem with that, Heacock always had some stud LB's that were leaders. I'm a little disappointed in Fickell and Withers comments about the D. Rothman hit the nail on the head. We didn't see alot (if at all) man press. Withers, yeah, you held *UAB to 15 points but how many yards did you give up?
The beauty of this year is it will allow the Buckeyes to take risks. As fans, I believe that we would be satisfied with seeing an aggressive defense that is high risk and at times high reward. Teams are watching tape of us and exploiting our weakness, things have to change.
The Bucks will get together, hopefully!
