Zero TOs in the 2nd half allowed them to survive some shaky stretches and the loss of Thompson. Bell was also huge in that regard. Not always pretty but winning on the road is huge.
CJ Jackson? Really?
Has Lyle ever made a fadeaway shot?
Under 50% on FTs.
You can't live with that shot if he keeps missing it.
TT unusually bad from the line tonight.
Just look at the turnovers. So many empty possessions.
And so the receiver discussion continues. A few days ago I came across a post on another Buckeye site from the NW game by someone who was actually at the game and not passing judgment based on what they saw on TV.
The post is by Bucknut502 with a tag of "JT's only fan." Here is a condensed version (removed non-receiver stuff).
Couple of observatuons because sitting in the stands allowed me to see a lot more than I do on TV obviously.
I noticed that JT gives that pump fake far too much. He will have a receiver open but still try to freeze a Safety. By that time, the open receiver is no longer open, which forces him to throw it into the flat damn near every passing play. I dont know if this is a JT issue or a Beck issue but it really needs to stop on every single passing play.
JT must not trust James Clark to catch the ball because he is literary blowing past everyone on go routes. He has ridiculous speed!
Receivers are open. Ball is not delivered on time. Window of opportunity closes. A point I have made in the past.
If the McLaurin picture from the Clemson game in this article was chosen to illustrate "lack of separation" it was not an optimal choice. TMC was open but the ball was underthrown, allowing the DB to close (and interfere). This happened right after the exact same thing happened the previous play with Binjamin Victor, except Victor was even more wide open.
Based on Kyle Morgan's analysis at The Ozone I agree. He showed how the spacing of receivers and the patterns they ran hurt them and illustrated the difference between what the Bucks did and what Wilson does.
The alignments and routes did not put the receivers in a position to make basic plays, much less big ones.

IIRC, Gibson requested the switch to try to get on the field sooner.
Need the right mix. We have a lot of guys that can replace each other, but no real complementary components.
Ohio State's next chance at securing its first conference win of the 2016-17 season is Sunday when it hosts Michigan State at 1:30 p.m.
Nope. Need to look further down the schedule.
Turned it into a respectable 23-point loss late. Yea, bench.
Wisky 60% from 3. 25% from the charity stripe.
How long has Wisky gone w/o missing?
It seems we always get Wisky after they have a poor shooting performance and then no one on the team can miss.
Especially if TT leaves.
When they make shots, they're awfully good. Thanks for the insight.
I can take watching the Bucks but I don't know if I can take them and Calhoun.
Even the open looks? Most of them have been open. Wisky isn't even worried about covering these guys.
Good battle in rebound margin at the Buck's defensive end. Currently they are down 14-13 but I am hoping they can pull it out in the 2nd half.
As badly as we are shooting, Wisky still has 1 more offensive than defensive board. Amazing.
Why bother, Thad? What are you going to tell them? Shoot and rebound better?
There's the patented stop-the-Buckeye-run-with-a-turnover.
This team just cannot shoot. They are missing wide open perimeter shots.
