Isn't there like 5-6 offensive line assistants in this team that all have worked and learned under Warinner? What's the problem with having Ed up in the box with Beck? Not only to call plays but to see what the defense is doing? How the line is playing and make adjustments by calling down to one of his more trusted assistants? (Should have tried to have LeCharles on staff) 

Beck/Warinner worked wonders at Kansas right? Maybe they need to be in the box together, letting their offensive genius come out.

I'm sorry but I don't think anyone thought the crowd was booing the players. Virtually this is the team that won a national title with all the returning players, any knowledgable fan knows the mass amount of talent on the Buckeyes' roster. I thought and hope the boos were raining down from the stands because of the coaching and playcalls. I'm sorry but I don't think an NFL team could've beat Michigan State with that exact same gameplan, it was horrendous. 

You have a QB in Barrett whose money is in the intermediate pass game (which was open all night because of MSU's LBs committing to the run) yet Beck calls for QB runs time and time again. You have a RB up for the Heisman and he gets 2 second half carries... You have a weak secondary that gave up massive amounts of yards to an average Nebraska team yet you don't utilize Miller and Thomas who COULD NOT be guarded that night... The boos were for the offensive coaching staff, period. Can't believe what this game would've been like had Cook played. It's just one loss, yes but it's backbreaking this late in the season. Wins over #9 MSU, whatever UM is ranked and #5 Iowa team would've been enough to put OSU #1 IMO.

This whole Beck thing kinda feels like the Withers situation. Just doesn't fit/mesh with the coaches. Panic hire when Urban missed on a couple guys he wanted, players voicing opinions on play calls..

That being said, the season is far from over. I know this isn't what many people want to hear right now but I'll take a loss to MSU any day of the week if it means an ass kicking of TTUN. 

Comment 02 Nov 2015

Man oh man I hope the Buckeyes are ranked at #3 or #4. I think it would not only piss the team off but also would be an eye opener for them (players AND coaches) that might still be resting on anything that happened last year.

Lol at the people thinking they have to spend 200 bucks on something official from OSU. Look in your closet, there is something black in there, I promise. If not, your local gas station probably sells $5 plain black t shirts. No one is gonna yell at you for wearing a plain black shirt.

I'm watching the Indiana/PSU game on ESPN2 right now, seems like the interior of the Penn State defensive line is getting pushed around. Also, their offensive line is completely awful. From the inside on out. Their left tackle is getting blown by every time and as I just typed that, the LT, Palmer I think, literally had his hands on his hips the entire play, it almost seemed like he wanted to let the guy go past him... It was interesting to say the least. I think the only thing I can think of to be worried about is their gameplan. I used to think the whole "teams plan for Ohio State for weeks" thing was just talk but after seeing VT, NIU and now watching Indiana, it seems real. Maybe PSU comes out and has a good gameplan on offense and you know Franklin is going to be running some if not all 3-4, that seems like a given. Also, wouldn't be surprised to see them run a lot of inside zone from pistol and shotgun.

PSU's defensive line is getting pushed around, their linebackers seem slow, the corners were playing off 10 yards and giving up all sorts of receiving yards. The only positive I'm seeing is their one TE (#87) and WR (#5). Those two seem like the only two getting open, Hackenberg just got sacked for the 5th time, saw no one was open, dropped his head and tried to run, coverage sack. Also, just watched PSU's LT get thrown to the ground by Indiana's 3rd string DE who is about 6'0 230. 

Okay this game is hurting my eyes. I'll say if Penn State is smart, they will run a lot of inside zone and short passes to the TE. If they try and drop back and pass Hackenberg will die. 

Ohio State - 56 

Penn State - 10

Comment 12 Oct 2015

Judging from the comments in this post, I'm hoping Ohio State is planning on handing out free black shirts with a logo or something on it at the gates cause it'd sure look pretty dumb with 90% of The Shoe wearing Scarlet and the other 10% wearing black. Not seeming like too many supporters for this whole black out the shoe thing

Comment 12 Oct 2015

This might be a dumb question, but do you think this would allow Urban to gice JT a package of plays, say 20-25 plays they like to run in the red zone and to absolutely master and just to focus on those? I know he knows all of the playbook already, but I guess what I'm saying is it's obviously a lot easier to master 10 plays against all sorts of defenses instead of 100+ against all different defenses. Allows you to diagnose defensive looks and go faster playcalling wise.

I really like Wiltfong and believe he's one of the best in the business but Crystal Ball picks are his opinion of how he thinks a recruit is leaning at the moment and he's usually always having inside info on that. Gary to TTUN is probably a good bet right now, Wiltfong believes that and he should and we all should.

TTUN is showing vast improvement but this weekend and a couple after will define if they have really changed or if they just used the OOC schedule and a terrible Maryland team to boost the image in Ann Arbor. They are going up against a solid defense and a competent offense, we'll see if they prove they're for real or if June Recruiting Titles and September Heismans are really all they care about.

As for Hamlin, IMO I think until OSU completely stops pursuing him, he will always be a lean to the Buckeyes. I've never had a good feeling about Fuller but hoping OSU can land one of the two. 

Comment 05 Oct 2015

Lol I love how our definition of looking like shit is 100+ others team's dream. Undefeated, insane amount of room to improve, very talented roster, two great QBs, talented attacking defense with speed and length all over the field. Man we must have it bad...

Think about it this way, if the way our Buckeyes are playing is shit then what the hell are they going to look like when they are playing nine strong? Scary thought. Have faith y'all, in case the panickers forgot, look up who the Head Coach of our team is

Comment 04 Oct 2015

Him retweeting tweets from people bashing OSU and Urban seemed like pretty clear writing lol. Lindsey from NV would fit just as well. Good luck to him with whatever he chooses, just hope he doesn't wait too long, a lot of talented kids at his "position" in 2017.

Comment 27 Sep 2015

Oddly enough I'm more impressed with their loss. Utah looks to be the real deal and they played them tough on the road.

BYU is two Hail Marys away from being 0-4, wouldn't be surprised to see them lose 4-5 more games this year. TTUN will have confidence in November and that's exactly what you want. One of my boys who is a fan of that team already posted a "We're baaaaack" status on Facebook. Do I want or think UM has to be good for Ohio State's sake? No, I hope they lose every game. But it's just not fun when UM fans have no confidence and come into the game expecting a loss, it's better when they think they're good and the Buckeyes (hopefully) throttle them.

The Game in AA this year should be great. 

Comment 26 Sep 2015

This may be a dumb answer but knowing the NCAA, to them that has to be some sort of violation. 

What's stopping Ohio State from zooming in on coaches and stealing play calls?
