Miller couldnt throw the medium or short ball 2nd half of the season. I dont know what happened, but our money play, the deep in or crossing route with Smith, couldnt connect. Several times Brax just threw the ball way over the WR's head...he's got to work on that...

I, still trying to fiure out whats i true and what is not true in regards to the police report he filed about the borrowed car that was broken into. Many articles say he reported over $10,000 of clothing, equipment, etc stolen from the car. In the documentary it stated they found $800 in his wallet and began questioning him about that??

Comment 17 Dec 2013

I've been going back and reading some of the articles written and information furnished to the public in regards to his suspension, and some things really stood out to me. 1) The NCAA never suspended Clarett, the AD Geiger did before the NCAA handed down any suspension. 2) Geiger says Clarett received "$1000's of improper benefits" and committed 14 NCAA violations in the process. I have to assume its the car he's referring to as the documentary never alluded to ANY other situation he was being investigated for. 3) Geiger really said Clarett "would be required to make a donation to a charity of his choice equal to the amount he received in benefits, which Geiger termed as "thousands of dollars," if he wants to be reinstated. How would he do that as a poor college student in the first place!!!!?? RIDICULOUS!!!

I feel you boss...but you cant on one hand say its not the D's fault and the next sentence say they've been bad all year??? You are right about the 3rd & 4th down calls, those were huge mistakes. But the D is just as much to blame for this game.

I replayed that INT about 3 times over because it was absolutely alarming to me that the corner , who i believe was Corey Brown, COMPLETELY allows that WR/TE streak right past him!!!! He's running free downfield and if Cook doesnt panic(he acted as if he was under pressure and threw the ball rather quick) and waits 1/2 second to throw the ball its a 60+ yd TD!!!

What you said about the robber coverage, isnt played in zone. Its played with man coverage. Watching the play, they seemed to be in zone against that bunch formation. At the snap Barnett immediately jumps down into his zone , which tells me they were playing cover 3...if they were playing cover 3, Brown should have had the deep 3rd as the corner. He back pedals about 3 yds and stops as if he's in a cover 2. So either Brown blew his coverage, which i believe, or Barnett gambled his ass off and got very very lucky Cook didnt torch him.

I'll post this again... "According to 247sports.com, Ohio State has picked up 34 defensive recruits that were four star prospects or better coming out of high school over the last four seasons. You know how many four or five star recruits two-time defending national champion Alabama has picked in that same time frame? The answer is 32"

They arent being coached up....

Comment 09 Dec 2013

This is alarming and someone has to be accountable. If its Fickel, then its Fickel, but SOMEONE has to be held accountable...

"According to 247sports.com, Ohio State has picked up 34 defensive recruits that were four star prospects or better coming out of high school over the last four seasons. You know how many four or five star recruits two-time defending national champion Alabama has picked in that same time frame? The answer is 32"

"The most points an Ohio State defense has given up in a single season is 297, which took place in the 1989 season under defensive coordinator Bill Young, as the Buckeyes managed to come away with just eight wins on the year. Under Fickell, the silver bullet defense has given up a total of 277 points thus far in the 2013 season, and they still have one game to go. Therefore, the team is just three touchdowns away from giving up more points than any defense in the history of the Ohio State football program"

 

CHANGES...AND NOW!!!

Comment 09 Dec 2013

Dude...I just read some glaring stats...tell me what you think. Should Fickel go??

Keep in mind that there were times in the past few weeks where  Brax has COMPLETELY missed the intermediate routes. Times where guys were wide open and his accuracy was horrendous? So maybe Urb sees something in practice we dont where those intermediate routes are being limited. But damn, NONE!!! That CANT be the alternative. You have to atleast keep the LB's honest that they have to play in coverage, and the safeties have to have something else to think about outside of 30 & 40 yds away from the line of scrimmage.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

So now that I've had time to digest the loss, come down off of my emotional tirade, and take it all in, I've come to the conclusion that we are exactly where we should be, which is still pretty damn good. 1 loss in 2 years isnt easy, ask any other national powerhouse how they've faired in the loss column over the last two years(insert schedule argument here...smh). The writing has been on the wall about this defense ALL season long...20 pts to Buffalo, 34 to Cal, 24 to Wisconsin, 30 to N.Western, 24 to Iowa, 35 TO ILLINOIS(most glaring), & worst of all 41 pts given up to that dysfunctional team up north!!! Then we follow that up with giving up 34 to MSU...None of these are overly dynamic offenses, and outside of scUM playing one hell of an offensive ball game, noone did anything spectacular except line up and execute. So we are who we are, and im glad we found that out before being put on the national stage and embarrassed.

We made some very uncharacteristic mistakes in that game too...1-10 on 3rd down...43 penalty yds, IN THE 1ST QTR...not running Hyde on 3rd or 4th down??? How crucial were those 3rd down penaltys in the 1st qtr?? I mean, what the hell are you doing running through a guy 15 yds down field on 3rd down?? Why are you pushing 15 yds down the field  & not turning your head when the ball is in the air??? And did anyone else see on that Grant INT that they completely BLEW the coverage and allowed a man to run free downfield. Our luck that Cook threw it underneath. With that said, if we accept our flaws, the loss doesnt feel so bad. As far as dropping to #7, whatever, i still feel we are a top 5 or 4 team in the country, and im good with that, FOR NOW...

Has anyone seen NOAH SPENCE or ADOLPHUS WASHINGTON!!!!??? LOL...they were supposed to be the dynamic duo this year on the d-line, and have been awfully quiet in the sack dept this season. 3 sacks & 3 qb hurries in the last 20 quarters(I could go back further and it looks even worse in those statistical categories) between those two isn't upper echelon pass rushing ability, we expected much more of them this yr. I will add that 4 solo tackles a piece against MSU isn't chopped liver either. But, btw Spence, Washington, Perry, and Bosa rotating in & out we should have one of the top front 4 in the country, and it hasn't panned out this year.

To end on a high note...JOEY FRIGGIN BOSA!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a beast of a game he had against MSU. Salude to that freshman!!! BRING ON CLEMSON!!! GO BUCKS!!

Comment 09 Dec 2013

63 pts running the football is a stretch dude. We HAVE to be able to throw the intermediate ball against Clemson. This downfield bullcrap isnt going to cut it anymore. Slants, curls, outs, tight ends mixed in with a heavy dose of El Guapo, and Brax running when the play breaks down makes this an unstoppable offense. We cant rely on JUST the run(we can when its working, but when we HAVE to pass, we HAVE to pass) and when we thro every pass cant be a 40 yd bomb downfield. But i dont see us putting up that many pts mainly running simply because of the clock.

Comment 08 Dec 2013


Let me also say this....did anyone else see on the Grant INT the other WR running WIDE OPEN DOWN THE FIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grant jumps the route and leaves noone deep. If the MSU QB would have held the ball for 1/2 more second, they would have had a 60 yd TD!!! Terrible, just terrible
