Defenses will load the box, play man, and laugh as we continually attempt to throw bombs down the field while our QB gets crushed. The inability to make adjustments is inexcusable. If our only counter to that type of defense is to throw deep then we are in for a long year.

For a while in the first half the o line made it look like Jim Bollman was back. Then we threw a completed pass on first down and I realized that Bollman would have never allowed that. The group up front is green and we have the best line coach in college football. I am confident they will play better this week and continue to improve as the year progresses.

I guess that I would expect that if Curtis was going to improve that we would have seen something by now.  I can't predict he will be better because based on the body of work, which is all the evidence we have, there has been little to no improvement. He was benched in favor of a fullback for crying out loud. I think if there was something there to warrant this newfound praise we would have at least seen a glimpse by now.

I don't understand how losing a stud at linebacker and replacing him with a converted HS quarterback is supposed to make the group better. The LB coach is the same. I hope I am wrong but the group being better thru subtraction of a 1st round draft pick sounds like a lot of wishful thinking.  I hope that the group plays lights out but their underwhelming play the last three years has me very skeptical.

I completely disagree. If we are hoping that the linebackers will be better because Ryan is gone then we are in trouble. I position group does not get better by losing their best player. That is like saying the 2003 running backs were better because Maurice Clarret was suspended. That group of backs may have been the worst I have ever seen at OSU. I think they are trying to pour perfume on a pig by stating it is addition by subtraction.

I ditched my buddies wedding because I got free tickets to the Indiana game in 1995. He was pissed. I responded with what kind of an asshole gets married on a game day.  We were undefeated and having the best season in a decade. I haven't talked to him since. He got divorced a few years ago so I am glad I spent the money at the Varsity Club that I would have used on their present.

Hopefully he has the same impact that Fred Pagac had when he took over the defense in 1996. We went from a pathetic passive defense that gave up a zillion yards to Michigan and Tennessee in 1995 (sound familiar?) to an aggressive blitzing juggernaut in 1996. One of the best OSU defenses of all time. That is when the Silver Bullets were born.
