You can die from that???
You hit on something that I hadn't considered. When PSU loaded the box, OSU went five wide. But that puts tremendous pressure on WR to get open fast and on OL to maintain blocks for what will either be a quick pass or QB draw.
Maybe OSU would be better served by running max protect with two excellent route runners like Samuel and Brown. The Redskins used to do this under Joe Gibbs.
The numbers aren't irrelevant. They are highly predictive. That's why people pay attention to KenPom.
The biggest impact Jent will have is on offense. He is OC and Paulus has shifted to defense. That impact is tough to predict though because most of the enthusiasm about Jent is from the affection fans have from his playing days.
I didn't read Meyer that way.
He didn't say that. But he isn't blow up the plan that made him one of the top two coaches of this era because of one game and a bunch internet wannabes.
That said, I would bet Urban has spoken directly with Zach Smith since Saturday night.
If you have to ask - then no.
That's silly about the staff. One coach should be feeing pressure - Zach Smith. None of the coaches should be feeing more than normal pressure to produce beyond that. I will say that Urban was stupid not to call TO to discuss the FG, and to kick in rhythm if that's the call rather than rush.
The reason there was no criticism of JT was because he was easily the most consistent player on offense. He made quick decisions, bought time, and ran hard. His receivers and OTs did him no favors.
Sorry, but that was not on JT. He threw the pass to where Samuel should have been. If Campbell fights through the hold, Samuel keeps running and it is likely a TD. No blame for JT on that one.
I vote against unconditional surrender.
I get it TOF. We were all spoiled by 59-0. It's the closest thing I've seen to a perfect game. We don't get to experience the risk of losing very often. But winning those games, like last Saturday, helps the team more. They faced adversity and made plays. JT was the embodiment of that attitude. The guy is nails and I'm all in.
I think we will see much better effort. Some nights the shots don't fall, but rebounding, defense, and going for 50/50 plays make you tough to beat.
But I like what I hear about more motion in the offense. That leads to easier baskets.
Mom always said don't play ball in the house, Maka. Make that floor burn city and you're in good shape!
He was wearing a cast for a while. Not sure if he still is.
Moderating the open thread during a competitive OSU game would probably drive me over the edge. I've peeked in from time to time and it's not easy to take. One thing I learn from those threads is that the back up QB (insert name) is clearly better than the starting QB (insert name) and the OC (insert name) is a bum unworthy of Urban Meyer, who clearly only has input on the plays that work.
Also, the DC (insert name + Fickell) is great when OSU is stoning the opposition, but if the opposition (insert name) has any success, that coach needs to be asked to find an HC job pronto and it's clear that Meyer only kept Fickell on staff as a favor to Jim Tressel, who still secretly is involved with the program. When summoned he meets with Urban, Earle, and the ghost of Woody. Sometimes they invite Cooper too, but only when he has his lucky Buckeye on his person at the time the Bat signal is sent.
I was never a Buckeye Donuts officianado but I appreciate the value that establishment brings to the campus community.
My late night go-to back in the day was Sandros. I'm not sure what their secret ingredient was for their Chicago style pizza - or maybe I was.
One drive in a half plus OT is pretty good.
There was a slant to Parris Campbell in one of the videos Kyle provided.
I feel like Ohio Stadium is plenty loud for big games. Tough to get crowds up for the home slate so far this year. Meanwhile OSU is usually the biggest home game of the year for the other team. That's cool. What would concern me is OSU fans showing up as empty seats even if some occupants give the same impression at times.
I would add that we learned a lot about certain DL. I was especially impressed by Landers, Bosa, and Holmes. And who got the sack on the final play? Four DL landed on the QB at once.
I don't find your assessment of JTB honest. Sometimes he doesn't trust his receivers so he throws a second late, but most of the time he makes very good decisions. That's why it's so glaring when he makes a bad one.
Plus the guy basically took this team to a gutty win yesterday with little help from his receivers. I'll take him any day.
He struggled in the first half but really came alive in the second. Better anticipation, better at getting off blocks.
Uhh...and the great Antoine Winfield. Can't forget one of my favorite Buckeyes of al time!
