Wisconsin did a very good job of using Ohio State's Cover 1 defense to its advantage...formation Ohio State's defense to get a soft edge and then attack with the jet sweep 

Going to Cover 2/Cloud force against the compressed formations really could have helped slow things down on the edge

This would really shock me...

What I heard about Brown was he was a grinder who the coaches loved 

Comment 20 Sep 2016

you can move a WR back and make him eligible and step the TE up on the line to cover the OT...you run the pass out of that formation if you catch a defensive back not covering the "covered" WR

It is an old Wing-T/Veer formation & play

Baker is better...

It has everything to do with his VISION...he is able to see the windows open faster than Booker and is not afraid to run through and close the window...Booker, for all his physical gifts is more often a step behind the play.

As a result...Baker, although smaller than Booker, is better against the run than Booker go back and see how often Baker is in the backfield...

Not to mention, Baker is also fast/athletic enough to be used a "spy" on Baker Mayfield...

Tuf Borland might just be the real deal...early returns from spring ball were very positive...

I do not see him taking a spot from Booker, yet, but Booker needs to prove he is a linebacker and just a big athlete

Interesting that Brown played that "Pup" technique to the shade...typically you will see the shade/5 technique be a "bend" player and go flat down the line for the QB. The "Pup" player is usually the DE to the 3 technique 

Heacock actually used this technique with his LEOs...he coached it as "QB to wide Dive"

Michael Jordan is the real deal...and he is a grinder...the coaches love him

Nick Bosa is going to play...only problem is that the defensive end spot is DEEP, unlike when Joey came to OSU. I could see him being used as a 3rd down 3 technique and slide Sprinkle to Nose

Mack was with the first group during spring ball with Smith and Brown out

Antonio Williams was told he needed to be ready play (before Dunn's removal from the team) 

I would not be surprised to see 1 or 2 of the TEs get PT

Also, do not sleep on Tuf Borland...he was repping at both Mike and Will this spring and might just be first off the bench at both in the fall

run-pass option 

only give JT one read and force him to make quick decisions 

see Notre Dame, especially earlier in the game, for a glimpse of the direction Meyer wants the offense to develop
