Remember when we were all jumping off the cliff about how bad the Buckeyes defense was not that many moons ago? Urban said, "I'm going to get more involved." What happened? Stuff got fixed, and we're back to the Silver Bullets.
That took over a year, and involved firing and replacing the DC. A genuinely bad Michigan offense put 600 yards on the Buckeyes, including 450 passing yards by Devin Gardner (lol). The cliff jumpers were (temporarily) right.
Urban Meyer may be the best OSU coach ever. I think he is. He will fix this at some point. But in the short term, his promise to be more "hands on" doesn't inspire confidence. The offense's problems are deep and systemic, and he won't resolve them this week. OSU will have to gut it out to beat Michigan this time.
