Ohio State can still win the Big Ten and make the College Football Playoff, but not if these issues — and yes, they’re real — don’t get fixed in a hurry.

The defensive breakdowns, in an overall performance that was still good and certainly enough to win, as well as ST miscues can be fixed.

The other problems?  I can't comment on the WRs as I don't see all on TV.  Part of "separation" is your QB must deliver the ball in a timely and accurate fashion as windows of opportunity open and close and I suspect there are issues with both ends.

It's the OL that is alarming.  What I am seeing from RT in pass pro looks a lot like last season, where they frequently  had to keep the tight end in to help out.  That would suck because Baugh could be a real threat on 1st down where team's LBs aren't respecting the pass and are charging downhill at the snap.  Of course, a threat is all he'll remain if they don't utilize him in that situation and instead run tight zone into a run blitz.

Breakdowns across the board.  Offensive line, defense and especially special teams.

Week by week the limitations are being exposed.  I gave Prince the benefit of the doubt against TJ Watt but tonight looked even worse.

There are no quick fixes for this, but they should still have a good year.

All of that plus either JT doesn't like to throw over the middle or the coaches don't want him to or a combination of both but almost all of our passes are outside the hashes or deep over the top.

Yep.  But JT throws the ball high a lot.  That's a disaster waiting to happen when done over the middle.

I used to get tired of the incessant whining about officiating by PSU fans, along with the "The Big 10 has never really wanted us" mindset, and considered them the most annoying fan base in the conference.  Then I stopped lurking on BSD and things improved immensely.

I now just hope they move to another conference to see if my predictions about them are right.  Namely, that the complaints will be exactly the same and only the names of the teams and conference will change.

Prince is having a very difficult time with Watt, which doesn't help the passing game.

Unless they figure out the passing game, Michigan will do the exact same thing and we will not see the Badgers again.  The Wolverines' LBs play downhill at even a whiff of a run.  It leaves the middle open but I see no sign that this offense can take advantage of it.
