Hard to fathom what Meech was thinking on that play. I'm sure he knew what the play call was since everyone else with a pulse in the world knew that play was coming. JT under center with Samuel in motion, here comes the jet sweep. I think ol Big Meech forgot the snap count. Either that or JT screwed up on the delayed fumblerooski.
Nice thing about the PSU game is that tOSU has a bye week proceeding it while PSU plays TSUN the week before. Oct 28th cannot get here fast enough.
PSU also has to play at Iowa, Neb and at NW versus the West division.
2007 was worse...I just hope we get another shot next year like we did in 2008.
Regarding the predictive play-calling, I knew we were doomed when JT went under center and I stated "here comes the jet sweep" and of course that is what they ran for another TFL. I was at a party with other Buckeye fans and everyone just stared at me after I called the play, my reply "we are fucked!"
I just don't understand why we did not break tendencies against a very good opponent with 3 weeks to prepare. I'm sure it was a similar game plan that we used against Hawaii last year. I'm not saying you scrap what got you to the CFP but you have to keep a defense honest. I know everyone loves the QB option that typically never worked as safeties would crash down after reading their keys. Not once last year did OSU run play-action (seam pattern would be nice) off of that QB option look. Not once...unfucking believable considering how teams would crash that play.
Yep...cannot believe they did not review that play. Doesn't the replay official have to review any turnover?
Time to call ' The Senator' and ready the security detail for TTUN's arrival at the shoe.
