PLD is essentially going to be a better Dubinsky. Think a less skilled Kopitar, but with more edge to his game.

Abramov is a stud, too. Crazy offensive skills. The CBJ system is actually pretty loaded. Could help them pull off a trade (another middle-six center could be useful, push Karlsson into Sedlak's place) or just wait for them to develop as more expensive veterans (Hartnell, Dubinsky) start to falter.

It'll be interesting to see how Texas plays on offense under Beck.

I think a lot of the quarterback coaching will fall on Herman, but Beck is going to be the sole playcaller.

He is an incredible recruiter.

I'm glad we're going in a new direction. QB development has not been good.

To me, though, the bigger problem is on the offensive line. And having three people splitting playcalling duties is a pretty strange setup. Tough to be a HUNH team when you have three voices arguing on what plays to run. We saw so many delay of game penalties this year, and that sequence at the end of regulation against Michigan was straight-up embarrassing.

Tim Beck got commitments from:

- Emory Jones

- Tate Martell

- Baron Browning

- Dwayne Haskins

plus if/when Okudah pulls the trigger, Beck was his primary guy.

Dude is a fantastic recruiter. With that said, I don't think those guys would look elsewhere if we filled Beck's spot with a home run hire.

JT wasn't the problem last night.

nobody else on the offense had a good game. elflein and price got beaten like a drum. samuel and brown were dropping passes. weber fumbled twice and dropped an easy swing pass.

too many negative plays, too many long-developing passes, way too much empty.

barely any of what OSU is actually good at – running the ball. 

the offense is missing a lot of tom herman's staple plays. bad gameplan – and, above all – players who weren't prepared to execute that gameplan. last night wasn't on JT at all, and honestly, he was probably the best player on our offense.
