I have bitched the past two days and still pissed but honestly I haven't even given any thought to MSU. I still don't think MSU beat us, we beat ourselves, really really badly, and the mood of the team, coaches, players, and fans included is pretty bad. I AM worried about TTUN, which is a direct result of the shit product we put on the field last night. 

I hope we can rebound and finish the season the best we can, but I gotta be honest and say I am not optimistic. I'll reasses after Urban press conference tomorrow, but it'll probably more of the same: "we gotta do better" "we are disappointed" "we will get back to work".....blah blah....

I just don't want to get embarrassed again, which is something I never thought I'd see this season. Go bucks! Muck Fichigan!

That loss was so embarrassing and deflating, I am not sure how this team is going to rebound for next week. 

And this isn't just the fans talking we already got the first round of locker room frustration that shows even some of our best players may have already checked out. 

So the next logical place I turn to is our coaches, but after what I saw on the field from them last night, I don't have much confidence in them being able to prepare these players.

I desperately hope I am dead wrong.

I know what happened last night:

- zeke touched the ball 12 times all game 

- 132 yards on offense - that is the worst in urbans career, and a bottom 10 performance in all of college football games played this year across the top of the divisions.

- five first downs all game. Five!!

- 2.93 averages yards per play. That's an average of 3down and out! Pathetic. 

No one is asking for perfection, but I think this team and this coaching staff owe this university and it's traditions to not get embarrassed. And last night was embarrassing beyond belief. Complete lack of preparation and in game coaching. The numbers don't lie

And this from the "number 1" team in the country, not to mention reigning champs, with your season on the line......IN YOUR OWN HOUSE! ughhhh I get more pissed thinking about it. This one is gonna sting for a bit. Hopefully there is positive news in a week but at this stage, I just don't want to be embarrassed again.

I think Urban going with Cardale had a lasting effect on this team. He stuck with him for game after game of average at best performance, which also hurt JTs development. I never liked that decision and many others didn't either. At the time, I thought it was stupid to question Urban, but at this point seeing the locker room split snd atrocious offense, I'm convinced this was a mistake that had many bad direct and indirect domino effects.

Would have preferred "I've decided to commit to the best university in the land - OSU" 

.........but I'll take it for now

What's up with Antwan Jackson? It's been quite on that front for some time. 

Do we really have a shot at Rashard Lawrence?

Comment 18 Oct 2015

He doesn't said "I"

He said "it" will put steel in their spines. Let's got go overboard and make shit up. I watched the entire post game interview, he was extremely complimentary of his entire team, I never got the feeling that he was putting them down. 

Comment 10 Oct 2015

The other question that I thought was interesting and took Urban by surprise, and he either couldn't or wouldn't answer was:

I'm paraphrasing - "if JT is better in the red zone, why wouldn't he be better all the time"

Urban laughed and said "good question" and then didn't answer the question. 

Comment 10 Oct 2015

I'm shocked that there are people on this board who say that SCUM hasn't played anyone of importance or skill thus they are not afraid of them. 

Really? We've played a shittier schedule and haven't been nearly as good, actually quite awful at times. 

People are such homers sometimes. You can't play both sides of that coin when one is more convenient than the other.

Alabama, LSU, Baylor 

Texas A&M and Oklahoma would probably beat us too. We have no consistency on offense, our run D has been suspect, and our pass coverage is good, except for the drive prolonging PIs that we haven't been able to avoid since 2013. 

Last year we had the same problems with turnovers and stupid penalties, but our offense was so efficient and high powered, we were able to overcome them. This year? other than Zeke breaking long runs, our offense is shit. 

Comment 04 Oct 2015

People around here just don't want to admit that schedules and play quality do matter. Yes, it is about winning, and we have done that. We were champions last year and as long as someone beats us, we are going to be #1. 

Then again, Florida State played shitty football for the entire year last year, and the only thing they had on their side is the exact same argument I just made above. Then they limped into the playoffs and got embarrassed. I love my buckeyes. I bleed scarlet and grey, but right now, we are NOT the best team in the country. It doesn't take a genius to see that. Right now there are 3-4 teams that I think would kill us if we played right now. Good thing, we don't play them right now. All it matters is how we play in the playoffs, but RIGHT NOW, we are not the best team in the country based on the quality of the product on the field.

Actually it is a coaching issue. Throwing picks can be bad decisions and it could very well be offensive formation, route running, and the inconsistent flow and horrible run game can put QBs in a position where they feel they need to sling it to convert downs. 

False starts are a discipline and an offensive rhythm issue as well.

Don't get me started on fumbles. We have consistently been a horrible team when it comes to fumbling, and it's not just one or two people, it's everyone, from last year to this year. I'm not sure what type of fumbling drills we do or don't, but it IS a problem

This isn't all on the coaches, but they take equal accountability for sure.

Forgot Toledo was a top 5 team, your schedule is brutal
