  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes NC certainly is hard to beat, but I think I had 14 heart attacks that year. One great moment at a Buckeye football game was when my father-in-law and I were running late, and, as we were sliding over to sit in our seats, Ted Ginn caught a pass and ran down the sideline for a touchdown.

I certainly trust Urban's eye for coaching talent.  To me, Nebraska's Offense was never their biggest problem.  What Beck can do with the talent we recruit here should definitely be a step up.  Somebody already mentioned how some Arkansas fans weren't happy with Ash.  I still remember that some Iowa State fans weren't happy with Herman.  I'd say both of those hires worked out well for us...

I will say, as a whole, the Defense has definitely improved this year, and they can still prove themselves further with two great games this bowl season.  Here are some stat comparisons between 2014 and 2013:

2014:  15th in Total Defense with 328 YPG, 17th in Pass Defense with 188.2 YPG, 33rd in Rush Defense with 139.8 YPG, 23rd in Scoring Defense with 21.2 PPG

2013:  47th in Total Defense with 377 YPG, 114th in Pass Defense with 268 YPG, 9th in Rush Defense with 109.4 YPG, 28th in Scoring Defense with 22.6 PPG

Agreed not only about Darron, but the LBs have progressed nicely as a unit.  I think Darron and Raekwon will be outstanding assuming they keep progressing.

I didn't notice the defender being blocked, but it was bothering that nobody seemed to be covering the pitch man for a large part of the game.  Thanks for that explanation.  As for the player assigned to the QB, I felt that player generally succeeded on his assignment.  Still, the Defense still showed some poor tackling and allowed far too many big plays.  In the end, I still think they gave up too many rushing yards for me to feel comfortable.

The Offense clearly played better in the second half, and let's hope it only continues as the inexperienced OL gets better as the season progresses.  J.T. clearly made some redshirt freshman mistakes as well, but I'd like to think he'll learn from those mistakes and not make them again.  I love the number of Offensive threats we have, although there was the one big missed pass that I think Dontre should have caught.  Regardless, it was the first game, and I'd like to think some of the bad things that happened are now out of their system.

We'll see how the Passing Defense does next week.  Here's hoping for a great game.

Most of the "or" designations weren't surprising, but nice to see some young talent on the two deep.  Those young guys could definitely see some time in the first few games if things get a little out of hand.  Cannot wait until Saturday...
