I really don't have confidence in our offense's ability to score 35 points... or in our defense's ability to only give up 3. We're still learning...
Sorry, I was actually referencing that time Tressel lost to Purdue where we Pryor had a zillion turnovers and we basically were never in the game... in response to "Tressel never got punched in the mouth."
Yeah, that offensive coordinator who last year set the school record for offensive production has absolutely no idea what he's doing.
What about Purdue?
Yeah, too bad we didn't fire the staff after the Clemson game. Then we could be sitting pretty with Strong, Mora, Sarkisian, or Peterson??
I really wanted to give them a B-... hopefully by the end of the year we'll feel like this defense would have allowed us to win the NC last year.
Awesome protip... thanks for teaching me something new.
But not why the University of Miami has floundered since that one overtime loss a few years back...
I love that literally the next comment posted is about coaching ineptitude.
Well, at least after this week our fan base won't be able to surprise you with how short-sighted, arrogant, and stupid they can be. I've been reading this site for at least 7 years, and the post-game fallout was the worst I've ever seen.
I know. It's so bad that you'll actually get downvotes for talking about any objective accomplishments of our coaching staff. And apparently despite this fact, I am not quite done reading comments.
I love that people are actually claiming that Meyer is wrong when he says he'd never seen that defense before. I get that we comment because we have opinions, but there are a lot of experts on the boards these days.
I'm going to have to quit reading the comments sections. It's crazy how quickly everyone forgets that we won 25 games in a row and set school records for having the best offense in school history. Now all of a sudden our offensive coaches are completely incompetent? It is nice to see Tressel getting some love, though, as you all wanted to fire him and his worthless offense every year after 2007. I guess everyone forgets that too.
As I keep saying, this is what returning 2 starters and 11% of your offense looks like in college football. This must be the youngest offensive unit that's played at OSU since I came to Columbus in 2002, and that's exactly what they look like.
Also, the Big10 is bad.
You are correct. Meyer has the kicker put it in the corner around the 5 yard line and we bunch up our coverage so that they almost totally ignore the other half of field.
Hate to say it, but I'm actually really glad Braxton isn't spending his last year of eligibility trying to save the team by himself while everyone else learns how to play.
Remember when we won 25 games in a row?
We returned two starters and 11% of our offense from last year. I had hope, but the reality is that it was always going to look like this.
And, how's the class?
I personally remember the Clemson game as a 50/50 split. Both teams were good and could have easily won.
So, where are the locker-rooms & meeting-rooms in the Shoe? Despite so many years of going to games, I somehow hadn't realized that the tunnel was just open on both sides.
I personally like them in the 10 - 15 range. I'd probably say 11 if I got pushed. Lots of potential, could move up, but so young and raw everywhere (except D-line). Should be a great year, regardless. I'm excited to see our coaching staff do work with this team. If you don't watch college football to appreciate the growth and development of players, you should quit watching.
Yeah, I like to go to my neighbors houses and steal all their beer... Saturdays are so much more fun that way.
