5 for the offense but 7 for offensive coaching. My concern is the rhythm of the game plan and the players to execute it. The play calling needs to match the players we have now. We've lost 2 key WRs to injury and only have 1 TE. Jones really only has one true WR in Thomas this year. Last year our success started bc of great WR and TE blocking on the perimeter. We changed to gap blocking in the 2nd half and Zeke went off so maybe thats the answer. We just need consistency so the players can master the nuances of each play. Too many plays and formations have caused confusion everywhere.
It's the old problem too many cooks in the kitchen. We have 3 guys calling plays during games, making it sporadic with the different styles. We also have so many play makers, attempting to get everyone the ball creates no rhythm. The other major factor is all the new WRs, except for Thomas. And, losing Noah Brown was the biggest loss of the season. No one else is consistent with blocks or running routes and it effects everything.
First, make Zeke the focus of the offense and take the pressure off Jones, ie. last year. This will open it up for eveyone to make plays rather than force feed them. Second, have one coach call the plays from the press box and the others advise depending on the players feed back. And last, use tempo power running Zeke and Samuel with 3-4 deep shots a game from Jones. Let's just keep it simple and master the plays like last year.
Their season was over when we broke Brewer. Not the same VaTech at all.
It's at 4:30 ill be watching the Buckeyes.
We aren't running a pro style offense. Meyer's entire offensive philosophy is the power spread and getting the ball to playmakers on the perimeter. We may not be using the read option play but we are still running power spread out of shotgun. A major problem is lack of blocking and executing from all the new WRs and TEs on the perimeter. We lost Spencer, Heuerman, Smith and recently Brown. All were critical in the success last year. Until we fill those rolls correctly, we will struggle on offense.
Meyers offense is based completely on a spread set with power running. Then get the ball to your best playmakers on the perimeter. That's been his entire philosophy since he became a HC. Its worked pretty damn well. He may stop using the read option play but we are still a power spread offense.
I asked to same thing during the game. The play caller in the press box has a great view of the whole field and can see plays develope themselves. With someone else relaying the info to the sideline, that takes time and delays the call. I also wonder if Warriner being the OC is impacting the week to week OL adjustments for each opponent.
Also, Noah Brown was a much bigger loss than anyone realizes. He seemed to be both Spencer and Smith replacement, based on reports from camp.
The Oline and WR play needs to step up or these issues won't go away.
Hyde looks a lot faster. That spin move was sick! Gonna be a beast for years.
We did the exact same thing early last year. People were bitching about Hermans playcalling up until we beat MSU. The coaches focused so much on the 1st game (ie. Navy, VaTech), we got out schemed the next week. Im just glad we played Hawaii and the D is clicking already.
Also, we use "lesser" opponents early to install and work on different things for the season, so it tends to be eratic. If you caught Meyer after the game he briefly mentioned, we wanted to throw alot this game. This games a result of a short week, being unprepared and trying to do too much on offense. It'll be a different story next week.
That what I did. It won't let me click the upload button. must be the system like u said.
The offense has no rhythm at all. The coaches are trying to do way too much cute shit. It's throwing off execution and play calling. Just run the ball and throw on 3rd down.
They have the alternate channel. I would hope they'll use for Maryland. BTN knows Buckeye Nation would go nuts, literally, if they missed a minute of the return of Bosa.
I was starting my junior year at OSU and just moved in a new apartment at the Watermark in Grandview. I was waiting for the cable guy to turn on my service. He came to my door frantic and told me to turn the TV on immediately. The first thing I saw was the second plain hit the tower and the commentators say we were under attack. We sat there in shock for hours.
Seriously and theres no good movies or trilogies on for the holiday. I saw "Castaway" is on but that's as boring as watching paint dry.
I knew it was lot. Too bad he didn't score on the pick.
If he's not making the play, he's disrupting it.
Who are you guys talking about?
I just watched his awesome one handed catch the other day. This makes me sick. He was gonna have a breakout year.
He dropped that quick slant for a TD vs VaTech. I think he'll redeem himself this time.
There's theories in NFL circles already, that MJ helps the brain recover from trauma. Ive read about players being adviced by medical staff to use it after concussions. Not to metnion, a lot of players prefer it to pain killers bc its far less addictive. Theres a reason theres no in-season drug testing in the NFL. In time, the science will help provide some answers.
Yup, thats exactly what I thought.
I'm just proud of the fact i went to OSU, more than looking down on fans that didn't. Now when I'm dealing some idiot scUM fans, I like to mention I actually went to OSU bc they rarely did. But, I do think its important to be from Ohio in some way.
Miller, Brown, Dixon, Campbell and Gibson all new weapons this year. Add Thomas, Marshall, Wilson and C. Smith and thats a lot of WRs that can make plays. This offense is gonna be scary, no matter who's at QB.
