You can go to rehab for MDMA?  That stuff isn't even addictive. 

I don't know man, not a big fan of society demonizes college kids that experiment with drugs.  Especially since most of those demonizing Spence probably couldn't pass a breathalizer after a typical buckeye game.  Not exactly like the rest of us are puritains who never touch an intoxicating substance.

We don't have the talent at WR.  Plain and simple.  VT essentially played 5 linebackers and zero safeties in that game.  Despite every receiver having 1:1 matchups where one missed tackle means they go all the way to the end-zone - NO ONE COULD MAKE A PLAY!  We need the WRs to give us more than one big Devin Smith catch every 2 games.

Dontre had 2 carries and no blocking - it's impossible to look decisive when you're getting hit in the backfield.  Running against Navy Dontre had a 7 YPC which is fantastic.  He's now caught 3 balls for 86 yards.  He looks like a weapon to me.

By contrast Jalin Mashall has a total of 26 yards so far this year.  He's the poster-boy for a supposed weapon that has so far been pedestrian.

In my opinion it's a lack of talent.  Tressel made sure he had a Malcom Jenkins, Ted Ginn, or DeVier Posey on almost every season's team.  In the past 3 years all we've seen from Urban's teams are dropped passes and sloppy routes from everyone outside the numbers.  And while he's recruited a thousand RBs and HBs he can only really put 2 on the field at any time, the rest are watching from the sidelines.  Meanwhile we put 2 WRs on the field every play and he hasn't recruited a single top WR in his time here.

The number of on-target drops by this receiving corps through 2 games is inexcusable.  We have, essentially, a running back in Dontre Wilson making 1-handed grabs but our WRs are letting balls bounce off their chests because they aren't even using their hands.

Going from Michael Jenkins, Ted Ginn, and DeVier Posey in the Tressel years to the current WR "clown show" is my biggest frustration with the Urban Meyer era.

I don't understand why we haven't seen the slant in an OSU route tree in a decade.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I don't want to hear the phrase "so many weapons" anytime soon.  The only player whose proven himself to be a weapon is Dontre Wilson - everyone else on offense needs to stop reading their press clipping and start trying to make a play.

I feel like Meyer/Herman just don't believe they can run up the middle whenboth teams know that's what you're going to do.  I feel like they always need to out-smart the opponent and they can't just, for example, call Dave and let Hyde and a senior online do its thing.  They have to feel like they are outsmarting the opponent and can't just out the ball in the hands of their players.

Now, most of the time they do outsmart their opponent so that's good, but when it doesn't work I think that's why.

Basically the d-line destroyed while the linebackers struggled.  Most runs up the middle got obliterated and it seemed like every time navy tried to pass they got sacked.  But they ran tons of options to the ledt or right out in spacce and our linebackers and safeties were slow to get where they needed to be.

When Noah Spence gets back this defensive line is going to be epic.  You guys saw the same play I did where Adolphus Washington shed a freaking double team to tackle the ball carrier?  The 3 starters were so good today you could argue Joey Bosa was the "worst" of them - that speaks volumes about what this line showed us today.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

I thought he was about the same quality as Braxton.  For all the positives, his lack of arm strength showed when Devin Smith had to come back for that deep ball - that would have been an incompletion or maybe even an INT against a Michigan State CB.  Also on Dontre Wilson's first incompetion he really led Dontre even though Wilson was so incredibly wide open.

I do think JT might be better at his reads than Braxton.  I could see JT being a productive QB in this system not by being an NFL passer but by knowing which one of the nuclear-tipped weapons around him to give the ball to on each play.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Next Year's team is going to be insane.

A gelled offensive line with a talented 2014 then sophmore class pushing for starting time.  We'll have had a year to learn how to use the weapons of EZ-E and Dontre Wilson.  Our talented athletes thrown into the receiving mix will have a year to shake out.  Spence, Washington, and Bosa will still have eligibility.   Vonn  Bell and Rakewon McMillan will have a year of starting experience - Cam Burrows and Eli Apple will be pushing for starting rolls.

The only thing missing was a QB.  Was.

Did Tracy Sprinkle read a Warren G Harding story and figure "I can one up that"?
