It's very disappointing, because the young men know better. But that's all I am going to say about it. VA Tech still has to worry about JT/12 Gauge, Elliot, Samuel, Miller, Thomas, and Vannett being on the field at the same time! Oh, and don't forget about Campbell who could possibly play H or WR. Defensively, losing Bosa really will hurt. However, young guys will have to prove their worth. I'm sure Urban will be all over the D line now to make sure they are ready. Slade, Holmes, Hubbard, and Lewis will get all the chances they need to prove they belong. Hubbard could even have a break out, welcome go college football type of game! I can't wait for the season to start!

I would really like to know how a recruits parent would react to this. Plus, any perspective they have. I can't think of the recruits name, but he is a defensive line man who just visited with his family last week I believe. They then went to Michigan and his mom said she loved Michigan and all they had to offer. But, wasn't impressed with OSU. First, I take all of it with a grain of salt. However, I have to wonder if listening to an interview like that will change parents opinions about a person and the program they are running.

I listened to the interview, and yes, it was horrible! Harbaugh just wasn't interested at all. He was asked open ended questions and didn't answer with anything more than a yes or no. Colin is definitely an aquired taste. However, he didn't ask any loaded questions and was generally trying to get Jim to answer simple questions.

I would much rather read an update about a player who will be suiting up for The Ohio State University here than any other website. The only issue I see with reporting any type of personal injury/illness would be if it's life threatening. And that's based on parents well-being and privacy. I know the writers on this site refrain from posting anything negative about the young men they cover, and enjoy the insight I get concerning Buckeye sports!

I really believe Meyer could give each qb a quarter and the offense wouldn't skip a beat. Now, there's the whole rhythm argument, but each qb has ran a prolific offense under Meyer. By the 4th Meyer could hand overy the reigns to Collier and have a 30 pt cushion. Will this happen, no. But, it would be neat to see. I think it would be more realistic during the opening schedule. Once Big 10 play starts Meyer will start who he deems worthy.

I would not be surprised with this. If the Bucks can make a solid run in the Big 10 tourney and make an Elite 8 run in the dance it would be very possible. I still believe Okafor will go number one depending on who has the pick. But, it's a guard driven league and Russell's game keeps improving on a nightly basis. If he wouldn't have gotten cramps against the Hoosiers, tonights triple double would have been his second.

The offensive line haul this year is unreal. Shortest is 6'4". The bucks are going to form a mountain range in a couple years. Feder has the length to be a stud tackle. 6'9"! This will be fun to watch! Can't wait!

Too young to run zone. I also believe they are not long enough. Athletic guards allow teams to play man. Not sure why they made the change. Better make the change back. The bucks are young. No reason to get excited. However some growth needs to become evident. Big 10 is coming and will not be forgiving

The 2 players I really noticed were Corey Smith and Frazier. Smith was having himself a heck of a game before he got booted. Which was a horrible call. I'm really glad the D got that TD on Wiscy's next possession. Frazier was in Wiscy's back field all night long. That's going to be great if he is able to continue playing like that. O-lines won't roll their protections to Bosa all night long if Frazier is making them pay for it.

Let's remember German Buck. He's still a sophomore. I know Marshall has played pretty consistently, but it takes some longer than others. He made a great grab for a td late in the game. Not quitting on him at all. What does worry me a bit is tackling. On the season, the team had a combined 32 missed tackles. After last night, they may have added a 3rd of that to their total. When the competition increases, fundamentals have to increase. Perry didn't play the greatest last night. He missed some tackles and took bad angles multiple times. Minnesota is scary. Buckeyes going up against another stud of a rb. Oh yeah, we won!
Comment 26 Oct 2014
First, Bosa is a man! More importantly, why is it when the lights are the brightest the coaching staff goes into their shells? Play calls at one point was 29 runs to 9 passes. That's horrible play calling. No balance, no rhythm and I believe the offense suffered because of it. Hats off to Penn State. But damn, the Buckeyes were their own worse enemy... again....

I'm tired of seeing all the bitchin about OSU's secondary. They are starting two new safeties. One a true sophomore with 5 games experience. Oh, and he is learning a new scheme. Which takes more than 4 games. One corner; Grant, is a work in progress, who as a senior is learning a new scheme. New rules, new reads. It won't happen over night. The other corner is on spin cycle. Seems like the Ash is trying to figure out who the other guy is going to be. Yes, poor tackling is annoying. Something that truly needs fixing. I'm pretty sure the coaches know that as well. Let's be happy that the OSU offense racked up 45 first downs and 700 yds.

At what point in time, can we question someone's intelligence? And at what point do we question the leadership in the locker room? And it doesn't stop at the coaches. Players need to keep players accountable. I think it is pretty obvious now, that Mr. Spence has an issue... I hope he gets the help he needs, however he wouldn't play the rest of the year. This truly is a sad story.
