Why doesn't Ohio State run a 5 man defensive line with 5 real lineman? Earlier in the season Gordon was stopped by that scheme.
The Buckeyes MUST run a 5 man defensive line against Wisc. Often Wisc. runs two tight ends as the team up North did last weekend. We need to put 5 down lineman in on defense and take out a safety to jam up the gaps and stop Gordon. If we don't I think Gordon will run for well over 200 yards and we will not win.
I think the Buckeyes need to look at a 5 man line against these running teams. When the opponent puts two tight ends and has 7 men blocking 4 defensive lineman. Take out a safety and force them to throw the ball.
Buckeye fans will be there and cheering loudly. MD football ticket office needs to think bigger. Bought my ticket through third party and the face value was 17.50 // I paid that much per game when I was a student at OSU 100 years ago. Expect a big Buckeye croud.
I live in Baltimore and am going to the game. I suspect that at least 1/3 of the stadium will be Buckeye fans. Maryland's defense will be a challenge since they have a number of seniors on that side of the ball. Over time Maryland will have to a better job with marketing, ticket sales, alumni tickets etc. to get the place sold out. Right now they are amateurs at all of these things.
Coach Matta should have both Lee and Williams playing hand ball 3 hours a day this summer.
Does anyone know when the trip abroad is this summer and if the freshman can go?
STAY DOWNTOWN - walk to fells point (try Max's - 90 plus beers on tap) - little italy and Hard Rock Cafe - visit the Babe Ruth House and Fort McHenry - If you get all of that in you will be very satisfied
Don't tell Brady there is pie in Ohio, he will never leave the State
Pizza -donuts - taco Tuesday - I am sure that Brady Hoke is on his way along with Al (fired because he ate too many wild wings - but forgiven at this point) and Greg. So, make sure Buckeye Donuts knows of this so Brady and the boys can take a few dozen back with them after the game tonight
IT WAS THE ZONE- The 2-3 zone defense is what shut the Buckeyes down yesterday. Smith had a bad game too. Remember that there were three possessions in a row where he missed a shot or turned the ball over. Correct the problem by playing Craft - Thompson - Loving - Ross and Williams against a big team like Iowa.
Hoke released Borges because he ate too many wings at the BWW Bowl. Next year there will be more wings for Brady with anothe 7-5 record.
Since the bubble screen has worked against us time and time again, why not overload against it? Put 4 defenders up against the usual three or three defenders up against the two offensive players. Very simple solution, just take away the offensive scheme by putting more defenders across from that part of the formation.
When Art threw the interception 34 years ago how much time was on the clock? Anyone know? Scary similarities !!!!
LLL -Michigan will be back here soon
Orlando - COME ON MAN - I got a better chance at weighing 150 lbs
As he boarded the plane with his 80 pound to go bag of wild wings Brady exclaimed " We will do our best to get back here next year. My defensive and offensive coordinators are very grateful for the wings".
Brady and his two assistant coaches (chubby and tubby) will best the LSU-Iowa record by themselves
You don't need thumbs when you can balance food on your stomach !!!
I would like to see a modern art masterpiece of Hoke and his assistant coaches at the wild wings table
Hoke and all of his heavy duty (I mean fat) assistant coaches will eat them out of wings. Better order a couple of more cases of wings for the coaches' room.
Could not agree more with this post. Looking at 2012-2013 numbers- Thomas and Ravenal took over 700 shots. Give those shots to Smith, Craft, Ross and Thompson per game and we will have 4 players in double figures. I look for Williams to improve and the two new guys, especially Loving to provide depth. They will have a better record than this year
Great post - Next year the Buckeyes will have a better record than this year. With Ravenal and Thomas gone, 700 more shots will be taken by Smith, Craft, Ross, Thompson etal. We will have 4 players in double figures and a pressing defense.
