One of the basic keys to winning in this game is to absolutely deny your opponent to move the ball, complete passes, to shut down the running game, and to prevent scoring - especially in the red zone. Just shut them down all over the field.
Then, and only then, does the offense have a chance to work their magic.
Defenses like this one are the key to winning. This one did not get at all discouraged by a few turnovers on the O side. They found glory in shutting down their opponents. Great coaching. Great growth. Great players who learned, grew and had absolute faith in themselves, their teammates both on the D and O side of the ball. That makes the Buckeyes so special and such a success. The Silver Bullets are indeed back and I am soooooo incredibly happy to see the amazing level of their commitment and outstanding achievements. Go Bucks.
