That was a total bad game across the board. The O-line couldn't protect to allow the WR enough time to get off the man coverage. One thing that helped a ton is Cardale and Barrett were given much better protection later in the year. Also the WR played much better, especially after getting their stride during that Michigan State game. I know we loose Devin Smith, but I like what we have at the skill positions a lot for next year. Especially with the diversification we did on the running game. Urban's offense isn't just the power zone blocking scheme anymore. He forces you to stay home in the cut back lanes, and attacks all the gaps on the O-line. With another year to develop for a team that is returning a lot of starters on the offensive line I see this game going a lot different.
I do think OSU will struggle a bit, especially if V-Tech's linebackers can play the counter trey well in some instances. I see a lot of screen passes to lighten up that outside linebacker, with a lot of shots downfield with 12 gauge. Just too much firepower actually working at a higher level next year.
