Teams have been loading the box for some time against OSU. This was their answer to our running attack last year. They challenged Miller to throw.That is the weakest part of his game. They are doing the same thing to JT. NOTHING NEW. We are going to see this forever until we can punish this tactic sufficiently. Last year we could not. This year we still have that weakness....so far.Combine this with  a defense that cannot defend against the pass....so far...and you get a team that is unable to successfully compete against better teams.

Is Meyer's vision that OSU become a speed/finesse team ?

We have seen how far that gets you in 3 of the last 4 games.

Our speed didn't matter against VT,Clemson, MSU.

Our defense.No opposing coach fears our defense.

I am beginning to think we are being out coached.Other teams are developing their players better than we are.

Jaxbuckeye.

You said it all. I watched the game into the 3rd quarter and simply could not take it any more. The shot callers in the NFL are destroying the game right before our eyes.

Kickoffs are a slap in the face.They wanted to eliminate possibilities of injury on kickoffs.....and they succeeded.All kick offs go out of the back of the end zone now.NO returns.

The personal foul calls !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I won't  watch  the games any more.

The mea culpa....." but we have inexperienced players" has been repeated ad nausium. How do you get experienced players when you don't play them...watch your seniors graduate...then throw the young uns to the wolves with the excuse that they are inexperienced.

Part of coaching is thinking about more than the next play.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

-Meyer has lost 3 of the last 4 games he has coached

-this is what you get when you red shirt half of last years freshman class and expect them to play and perform with no experience.

Frankly...I don't buy Urban's explanation that we have never seen that defense. OHIO STATE saw teams loading the box most of last year. They dared Miller to throw. They relied on his weaker passing skills and our sieve like pass defense.

So what did we see Saturday ? Same thing ..in essence....we saw much of last year. Load the box...and dare you you to throw.

It worked for Michigan State. It worked for Clemson, It worked for Virginia Tech.

The lament last year was we couldn't get separation with our receivers.   NOW...... 2014........same thing. One on one, our receivers could not create separation.

PS. the QB for VT  is experienced...but has been on the squad......for 3 months !

Ohio State has lost  3  of the last 4 games it has played.

How have they lost ?

The other teams stack the defensive line and rush the  qb/runner...and it works. On defense...we still are struggling on pass defense.

These tactics are not new.. Miller saw them last year and when you have a team with better players they these tactics work.They will be repeated over and over again until our coaches figure out how to punish its use.

So far our coaches haven't figured it out.
