With all due respect, and I say this as someone that has posted things about the team out of frustration, we are in no position to laugh. The things I saw posted on here about our own team during the game was embarrassing.  I was just as frustrated but thought better of posting. 

Just like email. Type it up and walk away.

Hyperbole much?  When did I say that they aren't supposed to complete a pass?  My point was there was under a minute to play in half and we were playing man coverage.  Is that the defense you endorse?  Those so called "prayers" that you call them are answered when a cornerback is put on an island.  I don't blame the CB, I blame whoever made that defensive call.  It was just plain dumb.  

I stand by my assessment, horrendous.  You can disagree and I understand what you are saying, but it's the coaches job, especially with a young team, to put them in a position to be successful.  I don't feel that they did it.  No different than running Dontre up the middle.  Just plain stupid.

This defense has some major issues that hadn't been exposed until recently.  For me, it all starts with the defensive line, particularly the tackles.  The aren't doing a very good job, either stuffing the run or preventing the qb from stepping up when passing.  I think we are seeing the results of recent misses in recruiting.  Because our front 4 don't get enough pressure/stop the run, it puts pressure on everyone else.  Guys like Webb, Arnette, and Worley are getting exposed because plays are lasting way too long.

Even if they don't get sacks, pressure (as we saw with Joey Bosa) can get qbs taking their eyes off of downfield, forces them into making mistakes, etc.

I also think the defensive coaching has been horrendous.  Against Penn St, we gave up a TD at the end of the first half because we were playing man coverage.  Who plays man with under a minute left in the half? That was inexcusable.  How many times today did you watch the same two types of plays:  wide receiver out, TE crossing.  They did it play after play after play.  This coaching staff, on both sides of the ball, do the players no favors.

Fire the piece of shit play caller. If Urban does his coach-speak bullshit after this game then he deserves to go down with th GD ship. 

And replace this shitty line while you're at it!

Comment 29 Oct 2016

Whoever is calling the plays needs to be FIRED!  What a joke. Better athletes, huge gains on the outside, let's run twice up the middle. 

Comment 28 Oct 2016

My apologies. Didn't mean for it to be snarky. Text doesn't always convey intent. Wasn't aimed at you specifically. Just pointing out to everyone who thinks that it's easy to replace a punt returner that it's a really hard job. Expectation should be that he can field a fair catch, but it's definitely not an easy job. 

Comment 27 Oct 2016

Both are true. I don't see anything wrong with it. It's very difficult but at this level there should be zero tolerance on fumbling fair catches. What don't you understand?

Comment 27 Oct 2016

Completely agree.  Dontre, unfortunately, scares the bejeezus outta me when he fields punts.  Muffed punts are complete disasters because they are on your side of the field and either end up in scores or a short field for a score.  Most dangerous part of the game, IMO.  I would much rather see Demario McCall, if he is able.  What most people don't understand is that fielding punts is a skill; not everyone can do it.

Comment 27 Oct 2016

JT also failed to keep them honest when he had some HUGE running lanes.  There is plenty of blame to go around, unfortunately.

Comment 27 Oct 2016

Couldn't have said it better myself.  The average fan has completely lost touch with playing a sport and how difficult it is.  Having both played and coached, I can say coaching was by far the hardest part.  There are SO many variables and moving parts.  Playing, you just have to focus on doing your job.  Coaching, you have to HOPE that everyone does.  It's incredibly frustrating.  

Fans nowadays act like their playing Madden on their Playstation.

Comment 27 Oct 2016

JT is equally to blame.  He had HUGE lanes to run but instead held onto the ball.  If those pass rushers had to contend more with his running then they would have had to slow the rush, add a spy, etc.  He's a dual threat qb that played pocket passer when his receivers weren't getting open.

That rests SQUARELY on JT.

Comment 22 Oct 2016

Who the hell is making the calls on this team???  Do they have co-coordinators so no one knows who they blame?  The play calling on offense was an absolute joke only surpassed by the ineptitude of the defensive coordinators putting the cornerbacks on islands with less than a minute left. I mean, who does that!!??  Total joke!

now PSU has all the momentum!

Comment 05 Sep 2016

I really wish everyone would stop printing stories about Wade. I really don't want to read it anymore. 

I get the kid has to do what's best for him. Fine. But the fact that he's getting his cake and eating it too really rubs me the wrong way. Obviously the team wants him and is OK with what he's doing but I just don't want to hear about him anymore. 

I'm honestly not a big fan. 

Comment 14 Aug 2016

Did tOSU ever say why he wasn't cleared?  For all we know they could have said the other knee was a timebomb and it was only a matter of time. I have no opinion on his future. It's his life. Sucks for him though. Wish him the best. 

Comment 09 Aug 2016

I never understand this line of thought. Even if we ignore the fact that he's a teen, he was defending his pledged school against its closest equal. We would be saying he was our favorite recruit if the teams were reversed. I actually like him. Football is a game of emotion. I want someone like that on my team. 

Comment 22 Jul 2016

I'm sure everyone will let me know if I'm wrong, but what exactly did Danny do to create the #1 class?  I thought Urban and his tireless staff of recruiters were responsible for that. I really don't remember anything being written about Clark being responsible, directly or indirectly, in anyone committing. 

Not hating on the kid.  Just trying to understand why he feels it's HIS accomplishment
