Consider Smith's body of work . . . he's caught maybe 2 passes that weren't go routes in his entire career! Name 1 instance where Devin went inside?
What's Twilight Zone scary, is that the same vital elements are missing from our offense year after year after year; REGARDLESS OF WHO's COACHING!!!!! Tight ends? . . . nah those are tackles that wear 80s on their backs because they're NEVER included in the offensive game planning.
Quick hitting pass plays? . . . nah, those are only for use by our overmatched opponents as a means of negating our superior athletes.
Utah passes and such ? . . . nah, the use of plays that could be construed as being deceptive, clever, or tricky, are strictly prohibited in the "traditional powers" bylaws, and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES shall blatant displays of excessive creativity be tolerated as a means of winning football games at The Ohio State University (like they are in The SEC).
IMO Herman's game plans suck, and have put undue pressure on young JT Barrett by failing to use Marshall, Wilson,Thomas and Samuel to the fullest, as well as not using jet sweeps, screens and Cardale Jones to diversify an attack that looks way too much like Bohlman's and has been too easy to defend, for having as much firepower as we do!
For me, the nagging question is whether Urban seems so disengaged now, as compared with the guy at Fla., because he's rich, famous and burnt out, or have we bought into his legend rather than seeing what we are actually looking at RIGHT NOW?
