"Homefield advantage is a thing, but the Shoe the last few years has been noticably quieter, probably just because of the lack of big games"

I more or less contribute it to a couple other things as well.

  •  Ticket prices have priced out a lot of the true fans and we have some fair weather fans that jumped on board after the national championship.
  •  nooner games are tough to get up for.  it is always a better atmosphere at 3:30 games or later even against lesser competition.
  •  the fickell defenses of the past 4 years have given up way to many plays on 3rd down which take the momentum out of the crowd.  As well as making freshman and inexperience QB's look like Heisman contenders when we play them

i would like to see us hold a team to 17 or under in points....the real stat I want to see continue is the defense getting off the field on 3rd downs

at times he isn't getting that great of blocks to run off of though.  to often the ko return guys will just hit a guy and won't stay engaged and move the defender out of a lane for dontre to burst through.

the only thing working against them is the bs preseason rankings and AP poll Sec bias that makes their schedules looks so daunting.  It is like the top teams are playing top 25 games week in and week out even though some of the teams were laughably rated way to high to begin with.

they looked really solid starting out the season tonight.  can't wait to get the injured guys healthy.  this team could be scary good.  the passing was really crisp tonight for the most part and the defensive clears actually led to great scoring chances instead of just hacking it up the wall like last year

side-note on that marshall td pass.  if it were Braxton the second he saw the free rusher coming at him he would've scrambled right and tried to get in with his legs.  barrett stayed poised and put touch on the ball to drop it in to marshall on the corner route

Comment 04 Oct 2014

only thing baffling about that is how the ruling was play "stands as called" as opposed to confirmed bc on the replay it was clear his feet were in.  I hate how subjective replay review is and throughout most of the season ohio state has been on the wrong end of reviews

Comment 04 Oct 2014

prime example is the pass barrett threw to jalin marshall for the td.  if Braxton were in he wouldn't have hung out long enough in the pocket with the free rusher closing in...he would have scrambled out of the pocket and tried to score with his feet.

Comment 29 Sep 2014

spencer caught the ball literally right on the line of scrimmage which makes it legal for guys to be downfield blocking....it could have been called though it was close....conversely the cincy play where it was called they had 5 guys 5yds downfield blocking and the pass was thrown well past the line of scrimmage.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

true....true....I wish a coach would straight come out and say...."on that play I made the call and it was the wrong one"  too often it seems like on some situations the defense has a "fickellesque" identity and other time they are a little more aggressive and contending on passes and limiting runs.  before the half with a 3rd and 3 how are we playing 10 yds off the receivers.  It's alright if we drop the safeties in that situation but to have the corners in no position to not allow a first down is a joke...and a play later we allow a stupid td

Comment 23 Sep 2014

it didn't use to be so easy.  it all started in 2011 when fickell had total control and from then on our defense has not done great getting off the field on 3rd downs.  it takes all the juice out of the fans in attendance when we make some good plays and get a team in 3rd and 10 or more and consistently give up first downs like a leaky faucet.  If we just had any of the pre 2011/2010 defenses' ohio state under urban meyer would have a national championship already

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I don't think Urban has undying loyalty to Fickell....Fickell gave a hummer to someone in the board of trustees who basically forced Urban to keep him in my opinion

Comment 16 Sep 2014

the blocking is very suspect on the returns punt and kick.  the guys don't really block so much as they hit the person one time and then more often than not that guy makes the tackle.  that's all good on some of the people to slow them down and get them out of lanes but you do have to set up some blocking to create a lane for the runner to set up blocks and get players to overpursue him to break the long ones

thank you!!! just thought it should be said....they are really comfortable and got the kewl 11w logo....not to bad price wise either considering what buckeye corner and all the osu stores charge

Comment 13 Sep 2014

east Carolina's defensive line looked like the way ours should have last week....what a joke of a loss we gave to those fools....

Comment 12 Sep 2014

~~OLB Joshua Perry- Starter, has been solid

I'm sorry I just don't think he has been solid one bit.  He constantly looks like he is mentally a second behind when reading plays and is 60% of the time way to slow to get to the sideline when he needs to.  Lee is the only linebacker who looks like he is going 4-6 seconds A-B out there.  Grant is pretty good in the run game but atrocious in the passing game at MLB as well.
