Absolutely - he tries to get way too cute with too many of his passes, when he can make the easy pass instead and live to fight another day. He's like the gunslinger QB who is going to make the spectacular throw each game from time to time, but will also try to fit a ball in the coverage that gets returned for a back-breaking TD.
Lyle has the qualities you want in a lead guard. I just think he is miscast, at times, as the PG. When C.J. Jackson was in the ball game and initiating the offense, I felt like things worked much better last night because OSU did not need to make SC Top 10 plays.. too often they just needed to swing the ball quickly to the open man and it did not happen.
Moral victories are not something you want to build on very often, but when you are a team learning how to compete and win at the highest level, sometimes that is what you need. They learned they can compete with the best, but also will throw away games if they make poor decisions. How often do we talk about the positive impact Sparty's tough early season schedule has on that team during the stretch run of the season? Same thing here for the Buckeyes. This game will serve them well as we see them go forward.
