Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, who was head of the NCAA playoff selection committee for 2014 and 2015 seasons. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

The difference might be the character recruited here, (but I'm not naive enough  to think that a high character 20 yr old  from a high character family can't screw up.)

Another driver might be that if a starter screws up at OSU, there is someone very talented waiting to gab his spot. Someone who likely has designs in an NFL career.

Tristan Thompson has disappeared, and is all of the sudden so unathletic, that he doesn't seem to belong in this league. But if you think LeBron is the reason he was re-signed to a rich deal, just reflect on who he was in last year's finals. He AVERAGED a double-double. No one could have projected his disappearance after that performance last year.

Interesting stat that LeBron is 1-7 in Finala game 1's, but last year and last night the whole team laid an egg. 

A la John McKay when he coached the winlessTampa Bay Bucs , we didn't seem to have a plan on offense, but we made up for it by not having a plan on defense. That's on Ty Lue. No evidence that they even looked at film.

Thanks DJ for recognizing diversity of fans but then pointing to the facts to downplay another qbgeddon.  Now, can anyone explain why Nick Saban spoke at Massillon HIgh school last night ? Their coach went to UD, so that connection isn't the likeliest reason. They don't have the #1 QB in the Federal league let alone the country.

Hmmm, very suspicious behavior.

Thanks Coop

i love it when facts trump expert opinions. The man put us in position to make the 2014 playoffs - and not one of you wanted the Buckeyes go to the Big Ten championship game without him. He was on fire. Now he's on his third QB coach and 3rd offensive coordinator in 4 years. It's no wonder there has been variation in performance.

Comment 09 Apr 2017

 Warriner was largely blamed for the offense's woes because of disconnected play calling and no tempo. But the offensive line stunk against Wisconsin, Penn State, UM, and Clemson. Now we hear this week about recruiting misses requiring younger linemen to play.  Can't think of a better guy than Kevin Wilson to get us over all of this.

Comment 09 Apr 2017

Oh really ? So March practices should dictate a starting QB over one year of performance putting the team in 2014 playoff contention, and then two years of pulling rabbits out of a hat to keep an offense afloat despite coaching deficiencies and shoddy offensive line play ? C'mon man, if you were making millions as coach, you'd ignore this all, and start a rookie ?

Comment 08 Apr 2017

Sooo , the HC has come out and acknowledged what we all saw - the oline was weak with a freshman and redshirt Soph having to start. Gee, now I understand why that #16 guy was running for his life on most third down passing situations and why there was no time to throw long passes. What a revelation - I'm so glad he cleared that up. 

Comment 11 Mar 2017

What did he do when those players were gone ? That's not the question - how about this question ? 

What did Cardale do when those guys were here ? He got benched - oh but first he stayed in the game between the 20's but couldn't punch it in, in the red zone. Oh yeah, Barrett had to come in to score TDs. 

Which leads to the real question : how did the offensive staff blow the best talent to enter an NFL draft in OSU history ? That included the QB who DID win a Big Ten Championship, who DID beat Bama, and who DID win a national championship. 

You guys refuse to face the facts don't you ? Go ahead blame the QB

Brutus 

if these players don't give a shit, what were the other four who left after last season ? So now there have been what, 8 or 9 who don't give a shit ? In my world, the business managers who has hired this many busts gets busted. 

I know the man isn't healthy, and I don't wish him any ill will, but why do commenters here have to separate the talent from the coach ? They are integrated.

Comment 05 Mar 2017

I hate to say this - but I've come to the conclusion that we won't be able to decipher what's wrong with this team, the program, the arena etc.

maybe unc, duke, Kansas, UK will never have have perennially powerful football programs. Maybe Bama, Texas, OSU, FSU will never have perennially powerful basketball programs. Why does that have to be ? No idea, but it seems to be true 

Comment 03 Mar 2017

Great - you copy-pasted the box score. Now go watch the 2016 game film and watch the guy getting his ass kicked for 3 quarters because Taco Charlton was playing touch football rushing the QB - except he didn't count one thousand one - one thousand two - one thousand three. And despite that, JT still drove the team on his back for the game tying FG and two TDs in OT. 

In general, once again I invite everyone to Theozone.net article "Buckeye breakdown: Creating Separation" which explains the issues with the offensive passing tree by design, and why JT has to tuck and run so often. Even with a crappy design, it would have helped if someone could get a play called in Rhythm - total joke as witnessed by 2015 with an NFL team that looked weak all 2015.
