I listened to the game on Saturday on SiriusXM. The interesting part about this statement is that I didn't get to listen to the OSU broadcast because they were only carrying the Illinois broadcast. On the radio, you could hear the "clap" from JT to snap the ball and the announcers knew when the ball was coming out. About midway through the 2nd quarter, the defensive linemen had figured it out and were teeing off on it. The offense NEVER changed up the count.
In my history of playing bad football, once the defense figures out the snap count, the offensive line has NO chance. You're constantly pushed back on your heels in a retreating fashion because they have the head start.
I'm convinced that UM has been "toying" with defenses up until and through the Illinois game. I believe he's confident in our abilities and hasn't used anyone to their full potential at this point. (I realize this is my own personal pipe dream, but let me have it.) They are going to need to change some things on offense this week in order to combat the monster that is Shalique Calhoun and his Merry Men in green. If it's something as simple as the snap count, I think you see it Saturday. It's time to lay all of the cards on the table. Braxton, Jalin, the O-Line. Pull out all of the stops this weekend or it's all for naught.
Let Braxton and the rest of these seniors leave the 'Shoe the way they have so many other times in their years as Buckeyes. Dominant winners.
