My son and I talked about that.  He said "I want 50" and I said "we would need a TD and then go for 2".  We both smiled.  Nothing else was said.  We'll never know what Urban would have done now, but it would have been cool to get to 50.  

BTW, did anyone hear Harbaugh's postgame interview on 97.1?  It was awkward. My son and I both smiled again....

Glad to see Kalis is going to go pro in something other than football; me thinks he's going to be a matador.

He could develop into a good matador, but he will have to learn to keep his eyes on the bull once it blows by him.

When Washington blows by him in that second gif it looks like he forgot what happened right away, something his QB didn't have the luxury of doing.

Here's to playing at least one game  this season up to your potential boys! 

Sad to be saying that at this point.  Sad but true.  So true.

Maybe it is time to look more at the type of Ohio player that Michigan State gets, and that Michigan poaches away. National recruiting is fun, but the Ohio players are the ones that really know, and it also seems that they want to show up against Ohio State, too.  I know there could always be some who go to play in the mitten, but I'm just sayin'....

Buckeye Chuck: You could be correct, I suppose it would depend on who else is available in the draft as a CB, as well as what the needs are among NFL teams for CBs in this draft.  In a weak draft he might get drafted this year, but with a strong draft he could be a UDFA; I'm not saying that he couldn't make an NFL team that way.  I do believe that his cover skills are not NFL-ready but I also think that he could play run support now, but any NFL corner has to do both.

NikolaJZ1, I can't agree with that first part of your statement at all.  I don't think his speed is a huge issue either.  I just think that his cover skills need some work.  He could play run support at the next level but in order to be a cover corner in the NFL he will need to improve in that area.

Elliott is one of the main leaders on this team and to publicly call out Urban Meyer and the offensive staff was disappointing to say the least. Proclaiming he won't be returning to Ohio State next year as if this game had anything to do with that decision was just icing on the turd cake. Anyone applauding his diatribe doesn't understand what it means to be a leader and/or struggles with emotional intelligence. 

That a player would speak like this in public indicates to me that there are issues within the locker room.  Part of coaching at this level is having the players understand what can be said to the media, and more importantly what cannot be said to the media.  Either the staff has not done the job in this regard or Zeke chose to go against commenting policy; either way there is a problem there.  I don't disagree with what he said, but it should have been said face-to-face in private.  As a team leader Zeke needs to get this part of big-time college football right.  

One week to pick up the pieces  and perform on a level good enough to win Up North is a tall order after a team leader melts down like this.

There were whispers of Eli Apple also claiming he's going pro as part of the postgame drama. He's certainly an NFL talent ...

 Maybe in a physical sense, but Apple has a long way to go to learn how to play coverage.  If he goes pro now he will be undrafted.  

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Last year Mike Bennett stepped up on the sidelines and in the locker room as a team leader.  Maybe the leadership within the coaching staff was lacking last year as well and it came from a player or players.  I think there are leaders this year among the players but those guys are not as vocal, and I think this group needs some vocal leadership.  Maybe it is not that simple, but for some reason they have played flat and underachieved all year and got away with it, and MSU was good enough so they couldn't get away with it yesterday. 

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Those who say that this year's Ohio State team was overrated now have a case in point.  Those of us who would disagree have little evidence on our side.  I think that coaching this year is the weak point.  The players reflect the coaching.  There are likely other points that could be made but in my view these are the overarching issues.  Buckeyes have played flat more often than not this year.  If they play flat in AA then the result will be an L; if somehow they play to their potential for the first time this year then a win is very possible.
