I was charged with DUI by a small township PD a long time a go.  When asked if I had anything to drink, I told him I was on my way home from a class reunion where I consumed 2 beers over 3 hours with a full meal. The officer was also aware that I was a police officer. The field BAC confirmed my story with a reading of .005, yet I was placed in handcuffs and transported to their station.  My car was towed and contents inventoried, and impounded. THEN, I was administered the official BAC test at the station.  The results reconfirmed the field test (.005) and I was willing to take a blood test to prove I was not under the influence of any chemical agent. The officer apologized and stated that everyone claims they've had 2 beers. I was not able to drive my car since it was impounded and was not available until the next day. All charges were subsequently dropped but the humiliation, inconvenience, and costs can never be recovered. I suspect the arresting officer could not relate or sense brotherhood with a non-Caucasian police officer and chose this opportunity to make his statement that all would be treated equally under the law. There are many good officers but there is the hillbilly racist element that ruins the image for this often thankless profession.

I am not in the mind of Mike Mitchell nor was I a coach of Ohio States linebackers, but I remember specifically that M Mitchell stated prior to committing that he had no intention of red shirting. I am conjecturing that MM did not appreciate OSU using the preseason light injury as a pretext for keeping out for the entire season. If Fickell actually communicated with the  few linebackers under his tutelage, then the team would have been appraised of this grave concern. I think MM would have stayed with the team in spite of his father's health concerns. I am curious to see what his brother decides to do.  If he stays with OSU, it will lend credence to my argument.

The defense performed about as expected...still can't cover and opposing quarterbacks and receivers always have career best games against us.  The offense however was a bit of a disappointment. I expected more from Meyer and mensa Herman.  I'm just a couch potato fan but it seems to me that everyone knew going into this game that Clemson was going to focus on stopping the run and dare BM to be a quarterback.  I don't recall BM ever throwing for more than 250 yards in any game. I really thought they would have been practicing more on the vertical game than revert back to the 3 yars/cloud of dust philosophy and not utilize other offensive weapons that are available. No imagination and no back up plan or ability to adapt. Just don't feel optimistic about our chances for improvement unless there is an overhaul in our coaching philosophy. We should be doing much better with the recruiting talent that is brought in every year.  It makes you really appreciate Dantonio for producing such a dominant TEAM with 2/3/4 star level talent.

Our defense gave up over 600 yards to UM, while MSU and UW shuts them down like a ranked team is supposed to do to a bad team with back coaching and morale issues? Gotta step on their throat while they are down. I think OSU just gave their fan base a big sense of optimism and saved the coaching careers of Hoke and Bollman. Not to mention, will prevent the transfer of key players and recruits. Their offense was superior in design and preparation. They mixed up their repertoire of plays and added new wrinkles to negate the pass rush. Gardner had bad wheels today, even when healthy makes Bernie Kosar look like Johnny Football, and yet, I recall only one sack and remember, UM leads the conference in sacks allowed. Not sure about the play calling of Herman today either.  Too many drive killing low % long passes called. Rather see sustained drives with a better mixture of other weapons while of course, relying on a steady diet of Hyde and Miller for continuity.  While there is no denying that Miller is an outstanding athlete, his decision making ability is still questionable.  A win is a win but this victory left a particularly bad taste in my mouth.

looked like brax had a wide open field to run rather than jitterbugging in the back field eventually throwing it away...settling for a FG

 

Comment 19 Oct 2013

OSU has not stopped an Iowa drive yet. Makes you wonder if the coaching staff did any scouting and come up with a strategy to stop their bread and butter plays. This is against an offense without a passing attack except for their TE. Very very disappointed on both sides of the ball thus far. Hope there are adjustments duringnhalf time

Comment 08 Oct 2013

I remember reading good things about big Carlos when he was a freshman.  I'm a bit surprised that he hasn't broken a few long runs with his 4.5 speed. Imagine how those would translate to his already impressive average per carry (many of those yards coming after the initial contact). Imagine how more effective he would be if the play calling was not predictable, that is, if we truly used a more mixed plays utilizing all out skilled players to keep the defense off balance.

Comment 06 Oct 2013

Agree...I have been complaining about the same issues for the 2nd season now. The coaching calls on both sides of the ball leaves much to be desired. We have the superior athletes, all it takes is decent coaching to win. The secondary is horrendous! Why do the Cals, Ind, NW, etc. always have 500 yard games against our defense. We are not a dominant team.  Last year we were lucky to escape Ind, Pur, and Cal games.  On offense, what ever to giving the ball to our skill players in space, at least miz them in and El Guapo would even more effective. Love what Urban has done in terms of recruiting and coaching but there is room for improvement.

BM, CH, JH, and DW in the same backfield.....with a comfortable lead by the 4th quarter, put in KG, RS, WBall, and EZ. Get the tight ends involved too. Don't forget to get the future OL in there too.  Go Buckeyes!!

Comment 24 Nov 2012

Contrats Buckeyes and graduating seniors.  It was a most gratifying season  although I found myself yelling at the TV in frustration. The defense finally came around but the offense seemed to sputter as Braxton struggled.  On that topic, maybe after his concussion, adopted  a more tentative style with excessive juking/jitterbugging and running more akin to a back the size of Taivon Jacobs rather than someone almost the same size as Carlos Hyde. He seems to be taking too long to make reads insteading of exploding through the openings.Just my thoughts.

It really did not appear as though we had an extra week to prepare for this game.  Wisconsin really outcoached OSU and obviously aimed at shutting down Miller as he is the key to their offense. Rather than allowing Hyde to to take up the slack, Urb and Herman continued to call Miller's number for no gain. I figured there would have been an adjustment at the half but they never took advantage of the spies lock on Miller with passes to the tight end and running backs. Thank god the defense kept us in the game.
