Agreed. My initial thoughts during, and right after the game were more laden with expletives than praise. But after watching those three plays again a few times I can not only appreciate that Tubberville called a good game, but that our DBs made young mistakes that will improve over time.
Some of those are a riot!
Not having Spence hurts, but this is Ohio State. I honestly expected more sacks against these teams by this point in the schedule. Glad for the ones we have, but each week we hear about how this could be the best DL in football. I EAGERLY look forward to seeing the younger players develop and get a shot at the opposing QB.
I've wondered about Zach Smith's future with the franchise as well. IIRC, Didn't we have WR recruits parents even mentioning that OSU does not develop receivers well at all? Lil help to anyone who can remember the recruit &parents.
Your ND comment about the quality/strength of opponents is noted- and correct.
I'm glad the championship committee isn't filled by members named O'Hurley, MacMillan and Hoolihan.
Stone Cold and the Animal! That would have been a great tag team.

Those three plays were indicators of breakdowns in fundamentals. Apple biting on the first move of a two move post, Bell not looking- or not seeing the ball on the first TD...
With youth comes mistakes. Unfortunately three youths made three big mistakes tonight that cost us 21 points.
He was MVP at AirForce and a starter here.
And props to Jfogel6 for letting us enjoy it as well
At least we know the post game meal won't be spaghetti & meatballs.
Will Cardale set the record?
Bosa say NO.
Eliott rocking the Rod Gerald bare stomach tonight
OSUMB playing the Avengers theme. Cool
Did he just drop a Drake reference?
57 would be nice
Nice tiptoe dance to make sure the TD stayed.
Reynoldsburg? Purple pride is city wide!
Great receiving by the backs tonight
