The problem is, Urban can't decide who his BEST playmakers are, versus his FAVORITE players.  It goes all the way back to the QB "controversy" to start the season.  Everyone could plainly see that JT fit this read-option style offense much better than Cardale, but Urban didn't want to disappoint Cardale or make him mad.  And it seems that has been the case in other instances as well.  As it turns out, our "wealth of offense talent" has been our achilles heel all season.  With the exception of Zeke, it seems they've tried to appease too many people offensively, and get everyone 'X' amount of touches.  They've tried to get so many guys involved that it's been a detriment because NO ONE was able to get in a groove in this offense.  Too much trying to spread the ball around, and not enough focusing on 2-4 solid playmakers, a la Jalin, Zeke, Brax & Michael Thomas, and just riding them to a second consecutive national championship.  Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

3) It's SOOO nice to see them being able to get the ball under the hoop (to Thompson) and not have to see it hit the floor twice, his forehead and a knee before bricking it on the side of the rim (I'm looking at you Amir!)

YES!!! On two different occasions last night a guard made a terrific pass underneath which was actually caught and finished by the post player!  While sitting on my couch I said outloud "Amir wouldn't have caught that"....both times.  It's a breath of fresh air having post players who can PLAY!!

Man, I'm just glad he DIDN'T offer anything and everything!  Can you imagine the story then???  He handled himself VERY well, IMO.

I will admit that I'm not on here every hour of every day, but I've never seen a writer get so bogged down in the comment section of one of his articles before.  You wrote the article, you made your points, that's it.  You know everyone will have their opinion and not everyone will agree with you.  Why such hostility?  Just let it breathe!

I agree that high expectations are very likely the cause of SOME of the negative sentiment being felt by some of Buckeye Nation.  However, I don't think people were expecting perfection.  Of course, all teams make mistakes and we all know that.  I just think people were expecting a really good team that is as exciting to watch as they were last year.  So far, I have not seen that team and quite frankly, they've been painful to watch at some points. And it pains me to say that because I love OSU football just as much as the next guy.  I'm just hoping that exciting and vibrant team shows up before it's too late.  The "last year's Florida State" comparisons have already begun...

As a side note, I don't think the defending national champions and #1 team in the country ever "fly under the radar."  They just aren't meeting expectations.

I think a couple of these freshman are gonna be pretty fiery personality-wise, and that's a good thing.  I'm hoping that will rub off on Loving because we're going to need him to bring the ENERGY consistently, especially as the assumed leader of this group.
