Looked like we played the same soft zone coverage we have played for years, keep the receivers in front of you, let them catch the ball then make the tackle.

 

what amazes me is this is the defense Urban torched us with in 2007, Florida put up 41 Clemson put up 40.

 

you have to deny the playmakers the ball.  Imagine if a defense let a Teedy Ginn catch the ball 12 times?

Great summary of game!

 

I agree about player decision making on defense.  Marcus should have definitely got more snaps this year, especially on pass rushing downs, most d lines rotate players to keep them fresh.  Bell is a known stud player, no reps this year at nickel or dime?  Seems Bell only played because Urban told Fickell to play him.

 

The muff was the game changer, I agree coaches should have told him to stay away or fair catch.  Philly has bobbled punts before.

Defense needs to be fixed, we have enough talented players so maybe the scheme or D coaches need to change.  The last 3 games were a defensive melt down some coach should be held accountable for that.  If the offense scored 7 points in the last 3 games we would be screaming for the OC to be fires, don't know why D coach should get a pass.

 

I also question some of the offensive play calling, Braxton is not a drop back passer who will kill teams with his arm and Clemson was bringing the house.  Seems we didn't call enough plays to take advantage of defensive penetration, ie. QB draw, RB draw, RB screens, te screens.  Asking Braxton to drop back and throw the ball does not take advantage of his strengths.

Muff point killed chance of Hyde getting carries.  If Phily fair catches that ball Hyde gets 5-10 carries that possession and 10-15 more in the game, Braxton doesn't have to throw so no picks, we win!

Muff was a dagger in the heart and the game changing moment.  We were taking control of the game and were going to feed Hyde to run them down.  Defense forced 2 punts, muff killed all momentum.

 

I was not impressed with defensive strategy even if they played good enough to win.  I don't have the solution but we gave a lot of 4 and 5 stars on D seems like our D should be unstoppable.  I

 

Offense and Braxton choked up at critical times during the game.

 

i question the offensive play calling on last 2 drives.  Where was the QB or RB draw? they were bringing pressure all game.  Or even a couple hand offs to Hyde we had plenty of time and Braxton was having trouble either pressure all game.

All we can do if enjoy  the wins because haters will continue to hate.

 

ESPN has been reporting all day how the SEC is having a down year because of loss in Sugar bowl...wait  a minute, what was I thinking, they only report that story when a Big Ten team losses... They can't have their only  competition, the BTN, have a product people want to watch.

Comment 03 Jan 2014

Can we expect a multitude of articles about how the SEC is having a down year? oh silly me ESPN only does that after Big Ten loses.

Comment 01 Jan 2014

Please tell me the coaches are watching the Wisconsin game, Wiskey has eliminated Clowney by running right up the middle.

 

Please give Carlos 25 carries up the middle, fast SEC DEs have always given us hell.

I couldn't agree more.

the only thing that benefits ohio state is them winning the games they play.  Who cares what the rest of the Big Ten does?  If we beat who we play it shuts everyone up.

 

 

Why would I root for a Michigan program that we compete with in recruiting and steals kids from Ohio?

 

its a myth that Ohio States needs Michigan to be competitive again.  If we beat Florida in 2006 or LSU in 2007 no one cares what Michigan or the rest of the big ten does.
