I agree with your points about the O Linemen....and their lack of development last year, 23.  Completely agree. 

But no, I stand by my comments about not throwing the ball when you are up by 50 when you clearly and ridiculously over match your opponent.  It's not about hurting feelings.  Ok.....throwing some out patterns and "timing throws"....fine.  But long bombs when you are up by 50 is classless in my opinion and I don't apologize for it.

Really?  Why didn't we pass when Jones entered the game?  Probably because we were up by 45 points or even 52 by then.  Meyer is already thought of as a dick by most people outside of Buckeye Nation.  Does he need to provide further proof? 

Passing in the 2nd half of the game is what Bret Bielema would do.   No thanks.  

Besides...this team needs to work on its running game just as badly as CJ needs to work on his passing. 

So....there you go.

I don't want to be "that guy"...again.....sauce, but I would be careful about reading anything into the Offensive production from the Kent game.  For all I / we know....it was the same play book vs. VT, but only against vastly inferior talent.  The game eventually became an embarrassment on Saturday with the hope that everyone played and nobody got hurt.  That game was why it's impossible to convince a diehard NFL fan that College football is better.  Same was when Florida State plays the Citadel, or whatever.  

Again, not trying to be a downer, but Herman and Meyer did not have an epiphany after the VT game.  The schedulers just tossed them a softball.  We'll learn about the D against Cincy and the O as the season wears on.

From my point of view, making the 4 team play-off is the least and last of this fanbase's worries.  If you want to obsess about it, go ahead.  But as for me, I think the worry meter should focus on:

A rag tag O Line;  A young Qb who needs a lot of seasoning;  a running game that would scare nobody, not even Kent State; the morale of a team whose bench is not seeing the field;  a young Defense making (understandable) mistakes learning a new system;  

OSU getting passed over for a 1 loss SEC or other team? Seriously?  Hey, worry about if you wish...but I strongly suggest that is the least of our concerns.  

Comment 11 Sep 2014

Agree with the first part of your last sentence, but the "talent" canard by we Buckeye fans is overplayed.  Why?  Dontre Wilson's next breakaway TD on a KR or PR will be his first.  VT squatted on our WRs and dared them to catch TD passes.....and they couldn't.   Navy and VT ran right at Joey Bosa.  He made some great plays and is the closest thing to an alpha male on this D...but that's a stretch.  Like I said....be careful sipping the kool-aid about the talent level on this team.  Cuz it's a team that has lost 3 of its last 4 and should have lost to a mediocre Michigan team.  If this team truly is loaded with talent (and logic says that it is) then we have a referendum on the coaches for now.  

Comment 11 Sep 2014

"MAC snack" my ass!  As a proud BG alum, I say, Go Falcons this weekend!  Considering that Iowa had to pull a win out of its butt last week vs. Ball State and that CMU destroyed Purdue, I'd be careful about snacking references, Vico.  You never know who's eating who.  And really....if Miami of OH somehow beats Michigan this Saturday, will anyone in this Forum cry?

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Same guy.  But he worked his magic in other places in a couple of years....turned the programs around and then left.   Now?  He's in year 3....has a mess on his hands with a QB he wasn't ready to start and lost his "Tebow" in Miller.  In fairness to Meyer, if you take Mariota away from Oregon, the kid from T A & M, and Winston from their teams, those coaches would be in a shit mess too.  

So, yes, same Urban Meyer.  But his coaching years are like dog years.  He's lost 3 out of his last 4 games with stretches in those games -- entire quarters, in which his team was not even competitive.  We'll see how much patience he has to right the ship.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

This is comical. 

Someone please wake me when Nick Saban says to the media, "the Bama football team is waiting to showcase its offense against a traditional 4-3 SEC defense.  Until then, we are going to struggle to score points."

But hey, it makes for good copy, I guess.  Writers and fans hated Jim Tressel's bland, "don't say anything" pressers. But they love the bull-shit Urban Meyer and this coaching staff spew out.  Hey, have it your way, I guess.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Completely agree.  Wilson has speed....but no breakaway moves.  Calling him a superstar is laughable. (although let's hope he becomes one) ..no offense to him or the previous poster. With Ray Small as an arguable exception, we have not had a breakaway returner on this team since Ted Ginn, Jr. left. 

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Fair point.  2012 will stand on its own and I stand by my point.

2013....by season's end, was a mix of JTs and Meyer's players....but clearly Meyer's team, culture and influence.....that the team with the pressure of the streak and "the chase"......had obviously grown tired of. That much was obvious.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Meyer started out 24-0 with Tressel's players. 

He has lost 3 out of his last 4 with his. 

Comment 07 Sep 2014

And who do you think is hiring the Coordinators, 23?  It's on Meyer. 

What we have....are Coordinators....who were either running from their previous job (Ash)....or guys for whom this was big league training (Herman).   So far....color me unimpressed.  And again...it's on Meyer.....and this is year 3 without a win on the national stage with national implications.  

Comment 07 Sep 2014

The bottom line is.....Ed Warriner and the coaches had the time in the past 2 seasons, with so many blow-outs to develop a core of backup O linemen.   They didn't. 

Last year, Alabama replaced many members of the O line from the year before...several who went to the NFL, iirc.  Their productivity tailed off a bit, but it did not go completely into the tank.  

This is a rag tag O line and it isn't competent right now with guys playing out of position or without the skill or body type to do the job.

We live in an unforgiving "what have you done for me lately" world that can be unfair.  In that vein...Ed Warriner will slowly come under question sooner or later as an O line developer and recruiter.  Cuz that performance last night was as poor as any I ever witnessed under Jim Bollman's direction.  The worst thing is.....it won't be the last time we see it this year.  That's Buckeye chum in the water and the sharks are circling. 

Comment 04 Sep 2014

Hey, I am stoked for this!

By that time, when the young guys are standing in line, waiting to use the urinal, I will be in the Corona line, peeing in my Depends, smiling, waiting for my first ever beer in Ohio Stadium, while those young, dumb fucks fumble for their IDs.

Oh...and if you young punks (by then)....are sitting on your asses instead of standing and yelling, I'll pee on your backs from C Deck!

Comment 03 Sep 2014

Geez, someone pee in your cereal, dog?  Or are you a Florida Gator fan trolling this site and forgetting that Urban Meyer brought you 2 NCs on the back of Tim Tebow...before Gator football became irrelevant again? 

To be clear, I too, believe a top 10 ranking for this OSU team is too high.....at this point in time.

We'll learn a lot about this team on Saturday night, but, despite so much to be excited about with this team, there are too many ?? to be thumping our chests -- and they don't need to be re-reviewed here.

I agree that polls this early are crap, but if we are stuck with them, then based on an "eye test" I would put this Buckeye team between 10 and 15 without Braxton Miller and with this shaky O line and Defense. 

Comment 02 Sep 2014

In an answer to the headline of this thread, I will humbly suggest:

1.  We know that the selection committee will have a helluva tough job come November.  I did not see a team, elite or otherwise, that was unbeatable this past weekend.  FSU may be the exception cuz no one in the ACC has their caliber of athletes.

2. I think we'll know the winner of the Michigan - ND game will have a pretty good football team this year...one this fanbase will not want to give credit to.  And I think that team will be ND.

3. This weekend will be a "statement" (sorry, best word I could think of) for the B1G.  If Sparty, TTUN and our boyz, lay an egg, better start thinking about next year in terms of street cred, cuz there won't be any this year. OTOH...if the 3 of them win....that is a big step, even with Wisky's painful loss. 

4. We learned that Georgia has a good football team....maybe a damn good football team.  By the second half, they were tossing Clemson around like rag dolls.  Not Georgia State or Savanna State, but Clemson.  

5.  And we Bowling Green alums/fans....learned that Bobby Petrino stocked the cupboard full at Western Kentucky before he bolted for a pay raise in Louisville.
