"The best player plays" is easy on playstation when you have a number grade next to their name...real world you're probably looking at a dilemma of 'older, safer, lower ceiling but less mistakes' vs 'younger, fast, talented, doesn't know scheme, blown coverage possibility'.

Play the young guy to get him reps, maybe gasp....lose a game...and get the wrath of buckeye nation. 

great article and hopefully it sinks in that this is a really young team.  It's all good if we're winning, lose and either way, youth or senior was 'wrong and stupid'.  Just saying, it's not cut and dry.

The oline is goin to gradually get better over the course of the year.  The schedule this year presented a challenge in that they had tougher competition out of the gate as opposed to getting a tune-up, big out of conference game, followed by two bunny games-

i like the tougher out of conference slate.  It may result in a loss when were reloading at every skill position and oline, but much better than a Baylor schedule

Congrats AJ- great video, keep grinding and welcome to the chase-

Dear village idiots concerned about star ranking...let this sink in for a minute, urban Meyer knows more about talent and coaching than you...and the lab mice watching film and giving out grades 

That is all, congrats, 22 min to kickoff, go bucks

Enough of this last 3-4 games nonsense...The last two games weren't played behind an all nfl line and a veteran Braxton...losing an o-line, leading receiver, leading rb and all everything qb is apparently a real obstacle, which isn't overcome simply by throwing on an OSU uni or 'night game at the shoe'...

buckle up, you may actually have to be a fan of a young team that gets better as the season progresses

Easy to be negative this week, the loss sucks...enjoy the season, 10 regular season games left ya'll, lot of young guys out there to root for and watch come into their own

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Everyone can focus on what they want...lot of mistakes-

my takeaways:

-the team loaded with freshmen and sophomore starters are indeed young and will lose at least one game (probably 2-3 depending on how much they improve)

-Virginia Tech is good...they're better than their non-ranking and will finish well in the acc...that wasn't a wrinky dink offense, their 'air-raid transfer' qb took a pounding all night and still balled.

-Osu plays big non-conf games against good teams that could beat them. Cincy is no cakewalk, don't freak out

-as much as you want to bitch about the play calling, two missed field goals, dropped touchdowns and a few bad punts and kickoffs at bad times killed us

-Urban Meyer will have an answer to zero coverage blitzes

...or whine like the buckeyes should never lose a game

Comment 08 Sep 2014

It's good to actually see some sensible rational thoughts on these threads...I couldn't listen to the shit coming from the media both Columbus and espn-

re-set your expectations and you're going to enjoy this season as much as I will- get frustrated during the game? Of course.  

Say things like 'they suck' and start using your years of experience doing_____ to determine a coordinator...you're going to say Fickell because he doesn't call plays now...needs booted, just keep hatin' on your home team, f'ing hyenas

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Bad game- young team made mistakes...kicking game killed us, their pressure along with their good db's killed us, dropped passes killed us...

all that said, I was happy to see that pick six go all the way back with 45 seconds left as there 'was still a chance' at that point.

hopefully every single player looks in the mirror after this game and just gets after it. One thing flying under the radar because v-tech wasn't yet ranked, is the schedule...tough back to back with navy and cincy still on tap for the non-conference.  Playing good teams means there's a chance we don't win but it will be good for this team - go bucks

Comment 07 Sep 2014

If you're going to grill Johnny for having the nerve to pick against the bucks, prop for being right-

er have a young o-line and qb that was gashed all night by a really good defense- dropped balls, missed field goals...buy lost to a good team...young team needs to get better and I'm sure they will- go bucks

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Props to Johnny- dude isn't showing up with purple and orange pom-poms, just saying this is a game we could lose

Great discussion all around.  Do you guys really want to hear 3 osu cheerleaders saying "we're the best, no one can beat us" for 14 weeks?  V Tech is a good team that's very similar to osu- young, fast, talented, good coaching and will make some mistakes.

'Night game at the Shoe' are five of the best words in the English language, but the words don't have coverage skills or blocking abilities.  

Best of luck to 'Papa Elf' who's the new QB of the line- gonna be a great game, Go Bucks

Comment 04 Sep 2014

Look out, Jim Irsays off the wagon again ...he gets down with whiskey Wednesday and Thirsty Thursdays

Don't let an 'unnamed nfl exec' troll you.  Spence hasn't been unleashed yet and I'm pretty sure 'da dolphus' is going to punk some hokie linemen up...Bennett, Bosa...i mean, come on

Comment 02 Sep 2014

Ross Fulton, coming strong out of the gates-  great breakdown Ross, good reason to re-watch the game after that breakdown-

any insight into the o-line shifts or switching sides with 'Papa Elf' and Price?

Comment 02 Sep 2014

None new starters, playing the cut blocking triple option of navy...

it was a great game, entertaining, scary enough for every pessimistic fan to freak out and start telling Meyer, Herman and Ash what they should be doing, made the adjustments and came out with a win.

For the first game, pretty much what I expected-  young team that's going to progress...don't freak out

Comment 01 Sep 2014

Andy Vance- on point.  The par be set at spectacular left some people actually using the word 'bust' for this true freshman last year...which is embarrassing-

Well said by Maks, 'we need consistent and reliable weapons'...as fast and deep as our rb and pivots are- if they're disciplined and hold onto the ball, defensive coordinators will be pulling out their hair prepping for our offense

Comment 01 Sep 2014

Va Tech will be another close one, so everyone thinking they'll see our young team just dominate, buckle up.  

Agree with the grades, O-line needs to step up, and they will the more thy play together and build up the chemistry.  That's the linchpin of the team.

It looked like 'Big Elf' and Price were switching left and right sides which I never heard anyone address.

no way to grade the 'new defense' and secondary on navy- this week will be telling.  Burrows and Bell both looked good.  I'm a big fan of Powell, but his tackling needs to improve. 

Comment 01 Sep 2014

This is the part of the season I don't miss...

Things like "go ahead and make excuses but the defense sucks", keep that kind of shit to yourself.  If you think you're a fan of this team, then it's worth acknowledging this is a tough team to prepare for, and it's a tough coming out game for a lot of going guys in a brand new scheme.  If you spent the entire offseason thinking we were going to have and instantly unstoppable defense, sorry, it will take some time.

Negativity and finger pointing...staples of whiny entitled fans everywhere, just lovely
