After a nice interception to stop the opening drive by the Hokies, the very first play by the Buckeyes is a designed run by Barrett. With all the playmakers on offense, the coaching staff asks their "distributor" to run the ball. Again and again. By halftime, JT had 12 or 13 carries, the running backs had a combined total of 4. Putting everything on your freshman quarterback, both passing and running, played directly into the Hokies gameplan. If the Buckeyes even had a gameplan, it wasn't obvious.
E+R=O? Without preparation and planning, O = outcoached and outplayed.
