I know that I'm supposed to be watching the QB, but the thing that jumps out to me is the defensive coverage on the receivers.  There isn't much room to throw, which is music to my ears.

One thing I've noticed and that others have shared is that we have no shortage of doubters.  Keep saying we can't get it done without Braxton.  Keep telling Joey Bosa, Michael Bennett, Ezekial Elliot and Taylor Decker that they aren't capable.  I know it may be a bit wishful, but I can't wait to see our talented players come out with a fire like never before.  Go Bucks!

Hopefully Braxton can get healed up and recover to either go to the draft or return for a RS senior season.  Either one should be good by all of us fans.  

I'm actually excited to see J.T. run the offense.  The kid is really talented and has a ton of potential.  Lastly, this really gives our team a leg up for next season.  We'll have a second year starter with most of the offensive line and weapons coming back, combined with an experienced and seasoned defense.  We have great players and great coaches.  Great things will still happen.

Ohio State 34 Navy 10

First score: Field Goal Shaun Nuernberger

Defensive line sets the tone early.  Navy can't get the inside dive or the outside pitch to work.  J.T. struggles initially, but settles down and make some nice plays with his arm and feet.  A solid, but unspectacular start.  Navy gets a late TD.

We will be forced to be more creative on offense.  Guys like Dontre Wilson will no longer be novelties, they'll be necessities.  We won't be able to just blow people up with the running game.  We'll have to utilize short passes and use a lot more misdirection.  I guess the silver lining to this whole thing might be that we'll have to diversify our offense.

I'm sure he'll be fine, but there is something more to this than the staff is letting on.  It sounds like an "overuse" injury that is just nagging at him.  I suspect he'll be sitting down if we're up by 24+ at any point in the game.  Better to be safe than sorry.

Just a quick thought but how lethal would Jalin Marshall be in the wildcat?  He ran the option to near perfection in high school, and there isn't too much film on him at Ohio State yet.  

Comment 12 Aug 2014

He made an error; as did the other kids.  It was stupid for them to do it, but I understand why they did and have no ethical problem.  The NCAA hit them and Coach Tressel with a giant sledgehammer and hit programs who did things far worse with kid gloves.  TP will always be a Buckeye great in my eyes and he's fine by me.  They've all paid the price.

I would go with Hyde.  He's a more complete player.  He isn't as physically talented as Beanie, but his durability, toughness and balance put him over for me.

In all fairness I would be interested to see what Beanie could have done with the 2013 offensive line.  I remember a lot of time Beanie was met by defenders behind the line.

I think MSU would have won it all last season; especially if Florida State performed like they did against Auburn in the title game.  The 2013 MSU team reminded me a lot of our 2002 Buckeyes.  Their defense would keep them close no matter how poorly their offense played.  If their offense is working they're almost impossible to stop.

Comment 28 Jul 2014

In my opinion this seasons success will depend upon the secondary stopping the constant busts in coverage that plagued us last season.  Coach Ash's influence on the secondary will make or break this season.  Giving up 2-3 big plays a game is unacceptable.  We were lucky to have an offense that could score 45+ points a game to keep us alive.

Our offense won't match last year, but if the defense can work out their issues it won't need to.  The 2013 offense was the best in school history, and it's unfortunate they weren't complimented by a competent defense.  I have complete confidence in the offensive staff to re-tool the offensive line and to re-work the scheme to fit the new skill position players.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

I agree that Pryor would have been amazing in Coach Meyer's offense.  His passing was still raw (probably due to having a video coordinator QB coach) throughout much of his career as a Buckeye though.  I like what I see from Gibson's arm more than I did with Pryor's at the high school stage.
