It would be nice if the Silver Bullets always stopped everything and everyone that came their way, but there are some very talented plsyers out there who were unable to secure a place on the Buckeye roster. WMU has several who are capable of winning the occasional battle against one of our guys. Their RB was quick and talented and capable of making people miss. They blocked well at times and while it would be nice to be able to shut down the entire field (perimeter passing game, screens etc..., and still be totally stout up the middle) that is not realistic.
What I am coming to appreciate about our. 4-0 start is that we didn't play any total patsies this year. Three of the four teams have a shot at bowl eligibility and none were Kent St or FAMU. We were able to actually test ourselves against decent competition that was unlikely to beat us, but could expose our weaknesses and give us opportunity to improve each week. And we have. It was a total joy to beat WI 59-0 last year, but kinda boring to beat KSU 66-0. So while we want to beat everyone by a zillion, we instead have gotten a true NFL talent QB ready to start playing like one, gotten an NFL lite O line tuned up and ready to dance, several NFL prospects at skill positions comfortable at game speed and given a formerly (this time last year) lackluster defense the opportunity to get a VERY talented group dialed in and ready to take on much higher levels of talent. The rest of the B1G is looking at film and saying, "oh sh--, what are we going to do when these guys really get it all together?"
