Bad thoughts thread. Your assumption screams that Warinner and Meyer are purposely playing lesser players so Ohio State will lose.
This is 80% of the line that dominated 3 of the top 5 defenses in the country the last three games of the year.
Boren had ABSOLUTELY no problem blocking Alabama's beast across from him last year. Boren is the leader of the O-line. He is Urban's most trusted player on the O-line.
It is more than stupid to start shuffling an o-line this late in the season. The O-line is THE most difficult position group to learn to coordinate their efforts.
After the 2nd game of the season Urban told Warinner to concentrate solely on coaching the O-line during practice.
Very simple answer to a very simple question, The MSU D-line wanted it more.
