That was back when Herman was the QB coach and Warriner could focus on the line. Now, Tim Beck is the QB coach, and Warriner is splitting time. So we know what the looks like; we just saw it last night. Only, it'll be worse. 

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Yeah. Only curious how it will look next year after we've lost Decker, Boren, Elliott, Thomas, Vannett and possibly Elflein. I'm sure it will go swimmingly breaking in four new starters, given how this year went returning four starters from a line that won a national championship, especially if we keep Tim Beck.

I think the important thing for people shouting "10-1!" to realize is that even the biggest Buckeye haters on the planet expected exactly this out of the Buckeyes. 10 wins and losses to Michigan State and Michigan to close the season. We still have a chance to put it all together against Michigan, but given that statistically they're a better defense than MSU in almost every statistical category, well.... I'm not holding my breath.

We are going to run up and down the field on Michigan. At their place. Again. 

And our smothering defense won't allow a repeat of 2013.

38-17 Buckeyes

Sick and tired of the negativity surrounding the offense. JT and this offense, no caveats, puts up 40+ on Alabama.

Comment 11 Nov 2015

It's the one that piles up gaudy statistics with former 3rd-string quarterbacks throwing darts to wide-open two-time Silver Football winners. This team scores 35 points per half regardless of the opponent. It eats the giant target defending champions wear on their backs for breakfast. Through a straw.

Not only did this team never exist, it never has existed and in all likelihood never will exist, except maybe in NCAA Football 14 fantasies, where the read option can be run 35 times a game with no diminishing returns and deep safety coverage is optional.

It's college football in 2015. When your offensive staff undergoes an overhaul, your philosophy has to change from quarterback to quarterback, and you are working in just enough new guys for it to matter, well... sorry, folks, we aren't going to win every game 63-14. Even controlling for all of that, it wasn't going to happen.

I am pleased with the progress of the team. I think we will find Saturday that we are rounding into form. We might not win by 30 (it is Champaign, after all), but we'll never really break a sweat.

We had no answer for Henry last year and still almost beat them by two touchdowns.  

Comment 10 Nov 2015

I want Alabama's skull. Every year. If we don't get it, we'll just be told we're "lucky" we dodged Saban and the boys.

Not in the least bit concerned. Penn State's brutal opening stretch:




San Diego State



They had a Charmin Soft out of conference schedule and still couldn't make it out of it undefeated. If we don't turn the ball over, we win by four touchdowns.

This is rough, brother. Keep your head up. I'm just starting out in finance and still shake my head at how cutthroat this industry can be. I would take the pay cut and swallow your pride. I've made deliveries before (medical supplies, attorney and tax records, the whoel shebang) and it's actually a pretty good gig if you're paid by the hour, rather than commission.

I wish you the best of luck. My heart goes out to you, man.

The issue is not just that he's not getting carries. The situational play calling has been atrocious. Multiple opportunities to ice the game on 3rd and shoirt and we refused to give the ball to him. The one time we did, we ran him off tackle, when the middle was open all day. He needs to be getting the ball on every 3rd and short situation, and they need to run him behind Elflein and Boren. Against Bama and Oregon, that was an automatic 8 yards. The playcalling is too damn cute and it's going to cost us a game if we don't get away from it.
