As much as I liked the stats of a Jim Heacock defense, it wasn't worth a darn when it came up against a good offensive coordinator, with a good team to match - It failed miserably everytime. Flashback to those Mark Dantonio and Freddy Pagic defenses, now those were like this defense the Bucks have now. It seems odd that it took Chris Ash, from Wisconsin, and not the Buckeye who played for Freddy (Luke), to bring that style of defense back. Glad the Bucks are back to being aggressive... Go Bucks!

1st gen is the only way to keep track. Those were all direct under Earle, and most of them on the same team. What's impressive about Earle's tree, is that he only coached at OSU 9 years. There are others in his tree, that would be mentionable in a normal tree. In addition to the top 5, you also have Skip Holtz, Glenn Mason, and Dom Capers who coached under Earle.

Henry was good, really good. who knows if it would have made a difference, but who knows if it would have been a larger blowout had Barrett played, or Braxton, or if OSU had zero turnovers? We've all watched that game multiple times, and I've watched Henry in particular. When Alabama NEEDED Henry, he couldn't get the yards he needed. It's easier for the relief guy to come in and get yards at running back, because you aren't expecting him to get the ball. When he was the only back, and he needed a couple yards (at least twice) to continue the series, he was stuffed.

Who says OSU was a darling? No, the Haters hated all the way to their bitter sweet end.

Mute the music, open a Queen song on youtube, "We will Rock You" comes to mind. Come back to the OSU video and hit play. Ok, much better now...

I'm ok with the first 2 youtubes above showing cardale smashing the alabama defensive players. I could watch that all day. What makes it even greater, was the fact that the referee rightfully allowed the Alabama defense to make changes, but pissed me off, because he allowed them to TAKE THEIR TIME to make changes. That was wrong. In spite of this, Cardale made one of the best plays of the game, and it was pure awesomeness

Once they figure how to incorporate Loving back into the game, the Bucks will be fine. It was just a few weeks ago, before the Loving suspension, EVERYBODY was talking about how the team is starting to gel, and this is how Matta always does it at the end of the year. Obviously suspending Loving upset the team chemistry, and they were starting to play some really good ball before the suspension. Give them a couple more games as he starts to fit in, they will become a factor in the B1G tourney if they can find him some serious playing time again. This team has the talent to be in the sweet 16, only time will tell if Matta is Goat or a Genius this year.

QB problem? It's simple: 1st qtr - Start Braxton, get that double edged running game going with Zeke, get at least 14 points.

2nd qtr: With Zeke getting warmed up, bring in Cardale and his deep ball, should be open now, have at least a 28 points.

3rd qtr: JT, his mid range passing game, and scrambles, along with Zeke will be open as the safety's are now playing deep, wear down the defense time.

4th qtr: By this time, it will be a blowout, so bring in the subs and give them some playing time.

Sicne Tressel was hired, OSU has the MOST NC appearances, the MOST BCS Bowl appearances, the MOST BCS bowl wins, the MOST wins of the Power 5 teams, and the best win percentage BY FAR of all the power 5 teams, I don't think OSU needs to prove anything to be "elite"...

Eddie Jackson #4, tried to stay with Devin Smith, but his little legs just couldn't keep up the pace. TD, Devin Smith!!

The B1G East sure looked like the best in football at the end of the year. Let's compare B1GE 5-1 in bowl games, SECW 2-5 in bowl games. B1G East had wins during the season over SEC East champ, SEC West (and overall) champ, Big 12 champ, Pac12 champ. SEC West 0 wins over champions of any kind. Yeah, I'd have to say the B1G East is the best division in football this year.

On the starting team: Bell, Bosa, Apple, Zeke, C Grant. Anybody else from out of state? I counted over 60 players on the OSU roster who went to school in Ohio. In the end, if they go to Ohio State, they are Buckeyes, and will always be from Ohio, and their alma mater Ohio State. I just wanted you to be informed, so you don't spread false stats/info on eSECpn or anywhere else.

I don't see a lot of wins for the B1G this year. With my homer hat on, the wins will be: OSU, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and MSU - I can't see another win out of the bunch, but the OSu and MSU wins alone would be enough to shut critics up
