Giving Matta the full benefit of the doubt, not all teams are "coachable."  This team was making the same mistakes and forcing the same bad shots yesterday as they were in January. It was hard/frustrating to watch (for everyone, I'm sure).

Not all teams "click."

Not all teams can become great.

Better things to come next year (...or the next). 

Welcome to baseball season/football season eve.

"Dontre was also the team’s leading kickoff returner, with 21 for 523 yards (24.9 avg.). He was electrifying on returns. He never broke one for a score, but seemed a threat every time."

This. Yes.  

As the game "slows down" (I know... over-used/cliche´) for Dontre, I see him taking several to the house next year.

Thanks, CALPOPPY. Yeah, I don't claim to know either of the two on any personal level. I was just thinking Leaf from the standpoint of a guy who came out of college hyped as an elite QB, but was derailed by profound personal immaturity.

JFF  = Ryan Leaf 2.0

 

No doubt in my mind my Browns will draft him and the circus will continue.

Speaking of play calling... the single worst call of the night was the short third down on the first drive of the second half. Hyde was chewing up yards and what is called on 3rd and short? A fake to Hyde (who, by the way easily dove for the first down...sans football)?

Brax gets crushed. Drive over.

Didn't they learn anything from the B1G Championship game?

I don't like to pinpoint a single play, but the game clearly turned from a momentum and field position standpoint with the fumbled punt. That stuff happens. I am certainly not "calling out" Philly, but only pointing out that the Buckeyes were in position to go up 3 scores (not to mention run off some clock!) and instead... well, you know.

I agree, in general. There has to be a middle ground between "FIRE THEM!" and acknowledging that this is clearly an unacceptable level of defensive play for this program.

I do grant some margin for error given no Bryant, Roby, Spence and 1/2 a Bosa. You do have to take that in to account. However, does that mean our talent on defense without those guys equals Indiana's defense? That's not okay, either.

I do trust Urban, though.
