Great analysis but even better reaction from 11W readers. Some of the stuff I've seen people post is pretty laughable. "Yes, you, you sitting on the couch in the #5 jersey could coach this team better than a two-time national champion." I so much prefer dialogue where we aren't bashing coaches and players blindly. Yes, Saturday sucked, but it doesn't mean you blow up the coaching staff and bench all the starters. Thanks, all and go Bucks!

Yeah, I think that's the biggest problem. A few programs will overcome this (Ohio State, Penn State), but not many have the atmosphere or the history of placing players in the NFL to attract talent that otherwise heads south. Does anyone really believe that Illinois or Purdue might haul in a top-20 class ever?

Yeah, 2006 was the beginning of the end for this conference. Sure, OSU/TTUN met as 1 and 2, but it's been all downhill from there.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I don't know. I do remember a time in high school when I missed a tackle (kinda like a drop, but on defense). Our senior captain told me he would rip my heart out of my chest if I missed another tackle. I didn't for the rest of the season.

Yeah, I'm excited to see where this team goes. It reminds me of 2004 when they broke in a ton of new starters and expectations had to be adjusted after a few setbacks. I don't know where this season will find them, but I like the outlook for next year with all this young talent getting experience.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

We just need to adjust our expectations a little. Sure, I was as frustrated as any other Buckeye fan, but they are breaking in a lot of new starters. This is a season to build toward next season. With Braxton out, it looks more like 2004 than 2006. They will get better.

That said, VT might not win the ACC, but they are a quality team. Even then, OSU could have won Saturday night.

I'm predicting 63-6 every week for the Buckeyes.

There was a time when Washington was being pegged as a DT. He put on like 40 pounds between HS and arriving on campus. Maybe that's where he'll end up in the long run. Can we just go with 5 d-linemen and 2 linebackers from here on out?
