Ohio State's offensive line was dominant at the end of last year. Everybody who had OSU on their schedule for 2015 had to figure, "we need to figure out how to neutralize their O-Line or they might hang 60 on us." So they studied the tape and changed their tactics.

Sometimes coaches can "fall in love" with a player. Meyer has fallen in love with the entire Boren family. He loves their toughness, effort and work ethic. If Boren is playing hurt, but not using it as an excuse, it makes Meyer love him more. Which is well and good, I guess, as long as you keep winning.

I don't think OSU makes any personnel changes on the O-Line, at this point in the season. 

Disclaimer: I'm now about to wade into the deep end of the speculation pool...

If some of the backup O-Line guys are outplaying the starters in practice, but the starters keep their jobs despite struggling on Saturdays, that might explain some of the players' frustration that we saw after the MSU game.

So, what you're saying is:

Going into the season, I figured we had a decent chance to win 20 games, maybe sneak into the NCAA, but probably be an NIT team. After having watched the last two games, I'm wondering how we get to 10 wins. Turnovers, poor free throw shooting, and crappy defense are characteristics of bad teams.

So, what you're saying is that the 2015-16 team is being coached by Chad Matta, the evil (or perhaps just less competent) twin brother of Thad?

Thought-provoking, I'll grant you that. Seems unlikely, yet it explains everything. Hmmm..

Woody used to say, "Nothing cleanses the soul like getting the hell kicked out of you."

Hopefully, there are some lessons learned, and the team shows up for the next game with more intensity and focus.

That's the way the cookie crumbles here.

If you're going to be a TTUN sympathizer, you need to replace "That's the way the cookie crumbles" with "That's the way the pickle squirts."

The above statement has been approved by the Department of Redundancy Department, which has approved it.

No breakouts. The Bucks keep grinding out wins, as they have been, with the same guys doing the grinding, in essentially the same proportion. By week 11, they are who they are.

Barkley really dropped due to that decision too.  

I suspect his lack of arm strength would have been discovered at the combine, and his draft position would have suffered some; but I think his senior year cost him some serious money.

I cant stand Parmesan cheese, so does that make me un-American or un-Italian? 

I think it makes you un-correct, un-accurate, and un-right.
