As long as special teams and defense continue to play like they have so far this year the offense can try what it wants. They have made strides offensively. Once a deep threat steps up, look out. Then the top is off the defense and Zeke is doing The Salmon in the end zone. I enjoyed the game today. I enjoyed the calm feel the offense had. Here comes the B1G.

It did in the VT game. The missed field goal started their scoring. The fumble led directly to a touchdown. 

It's the first game of the season. Special teams was missing a return man. It was the kicker's first game as a Buckeye. Take your pick of excuses. 

I'm not going to start worrying after special teams when Urban has a direct hand in coaching them. If you want to, have at it.

I agree about the B1G's strength and reminds me of the article posted a while back on this site (I think) about the recruiting gap between a team like Kentucky and the bottom 12 of the B1G. (Yeah I'm throwing Dantonio in there as well... I believe they sit near Kentucky in the recruiting rankings.)

Edit: Said article -

I didn't realize we were calculating size based on future measurements.

I'll see myself out.

Screw that, everybody here knows how I despise superfluous punctuation.

This made me laugh. 

Also, Not Your Father's Root Beer is rather delicious. An upvote for you sir.

Ah, no. Joey is bigger. Also his twitter handle is "big" as well.

Wow, Perry was lost? He made some great shoestring tackles (one saved a TD), and most of the time he was aiming for their tiny RB exploding from behind a couple of big lines. 

Also I think the LBs covered the passes long enough for the line to get pressure. The problem was the line wasn't getting consistent pressure, maybe something to do with that one Bosa guy I keep hearing about. 

Also, don't forget to give VT credit with the plays they drew up to their FB and TE on the touchdown plays. The entire field was moving to the right, and those guys were able to sneak out uncovered.  Nice design.
