Bad. Really bad. Illinois, Iowa, Purdue, Indiana, and Minnesota would have to beg to be welcomed into another conference.

None at all. It just confirmed what many/all already knew. The good news is the B1G can only go up from here.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

It's Monday, and I've backed off away from the ledge. Yes, three main problems exist ( OLine youth, QB youth, and 3rd down efficiency), but as I've looked back they were 2 missed FG and a seemingly routine dropped pass in the EZ that could have totally changed the outcome of the game. As bad as things seemed to be at the time, OSU had the ball in the waning moments trying to tie it up before the pick 6. 

OLine is my biggest fear, as they have a long, long way to go. I actually see improvement in the defense and think they'll be fine. Onward and upward.

3rd down conversion rate is pathetic offensively. 

The offensive line is night and day compared to last season due to inexperience and talent. 

Hyde is gone. Braxton got hurt and is done. 

What more can be said?

Fire Fickell??

I guess rarely does on field production meet expectations, no matter the circumstances. Standards are set so high that 95% of the time they're unattainable. Fair? No, but that's the reality to me. 

Looking back on the last two weeks it seems to me a new QB, four new offensive line starters, and the loss of Shazier and all his tackles are too much to overcome so quickly.

They tried the short swing pass out of the backfield late in the game that Dontre would still be running with provided it was completed. Barrett hadn't the time to get a good pass off. What a frustrating evening. So many young players, such an inexperienced line and QB. I'm doing my best to keep it all in perspective.

Puzzling. We're not ready? Better happen fast coach. 

Great, Sparty carrying the B1G banner this week. Here's to hoping an OSU resounding win changes how people are perceiving them since Braxton's injury.

Always liked Frank Beamer. Class coach. Don't know if I agree with his assessment of the similarities between J.T. and Braxton, but to each his own. 

Saturday night should be electric and an opportunity for OSU to quiet the naysayers.

I might be in the minority, but I'm willing to give the LB's and run defense a pass.  Navy averaged 350 per game last season on the ground so it's not like it surprised me. OSU will not face a run game like that the rest of the way.

Saw Vonn Bell a lot in second half, which is a bad thing I guess given Navy's 20 passing yards. Also good to see contributions from Burroughs, Apple, and Worley. Still can't get over how good the D line is and can't wait till Spence gets back.
