Maybe I am out of the loop. Does anyone know what is going on with Dontre Wilson?
Michigan State was hungry, hungrier than we were. The play calling was bad, no doubt about it. #15 only gets the ball 12 times? Ypu could feel the loss coming at about the 6:30 mark in the 4th. Well guys, hopefully some of the players coming back next year will use this as motivation, especially JT. This team has several problems that need fixing if they have any chance of winning again this season. Play calling has to be held accountable with almost the entire offense returning from last year and they are sluggish against any team with a pulse.
We we get to face an even hungrier team next week than the one we played tonight...
Completely agree. We looked like we came in scared of them. Zeke hardly touched the ball. I could go on and on....
Couldn't agree more, this is terrible!
Black uniforms were awesome, especially the black helmets with red buckeye leaves. I think JT should start, but I'll leave that to Urban. Finally got to see a more dominating win!
Go Falcons! Being a BG alumn, this is the only sport I root against the Buckeyes in. I think I'm going to go watch the game in BG tomorrow night.
I think there are a lot of good points above. My two cents: I think JT should be starting and we need to establish the power running game that won us the national championship last year. Zeke gets a couple good runs and they start running sweeps and putting Braxton in at wildcat, which hasn't worked since week 1. RUN THE BALL w/ZEKE!!! I know he has gotten 100+ yards every week now, but against the opponents we have played, he should have gotten 150+ easily. Once he gets going in a game, he is hard to stop, but he has to get consistent carries. Also the playcalling, when you have 3rd and short with a stud RB and a veteran offensive line, RUN THE BALL!!!
Anyways, I hope they figure this out, my blood pressure hasn't been as high as it was last Saturday since the 4th quarter of the Sugar Bowl last year...
If I remember right, in the '05 game against Texas, Troy Smith had gotten in trouble and Justin Zwick started and played the majority of that game. We scored a vast majority of the points while Troy led the offense. My personal opinion is that if Troy had played the entire game we would have come out with the W, don't look back and go undefeated. Penn State was our other loss that year. Final score was 17-10?
With the linebacking corps we had in '05 and the improvements that were made on both sides of the ball throughout the season, I honestly think we could have beat USC. It is my opinion that the '05 team was Tressel's best shot at winning another NC. We were great on offense in '06 but lets face the fact, our defense not up to par and it showed when we played Florida. We just didn't have the speed to keep up, even though Laurinaitis was an amazing linebacker. Our '05 defense could stay with anyone. If we could have only put the '05 defense with the '06 offense, what a team that would have been.
We have a much better defense than when we played them last year. I don't see them putting up 35 points on us again.
"Cie Grant was the man that pressured Dorsey...."
A complete player to say the least. Great blocking all season long.
Marshall is a great football player. It is going to be exciting the next couple years with him and Dontre.
Not only did he make a great play on the INT, he made some very nice tackles, one where he was the last line of defense on their RB. Bell wraps up nice, which is good to see based on how the secondary looked last year.
Hilarious, that is the funniest thing I heard all day.
People are stupid. I love Ohio State Football, but come on. Marshall is still a beast!
Really hurt ourselves today. Take away the mistakes and we win that game by at least 21 points.
I'm pretty excited about this team. A lot of talent to distribute the ball to.
The guy from Navy was out of bounds, but the worst call I saw in the game is when they said that Elliot fumbled on the third down run. After he gained the first down by rolling over on his back after he was almost stopped, he hit the ground and it was clear to me his elbow touched before the ball came out.
We need to stop with all the timeline stuff. Urban has a completely different scheme than Coach Tressel did and needs to get all his pieces in place. I think the Bucks will be better this year than last and year 4 is going to be amazing.
Next year is going to be a great year.
With the recruits we have gained in the last two years on the defensive side of the ball and an offseason (tOSU weightlifting program in the offseason), I think the defense will make a huge improvement. Joey Bosa training all spring at the college level? He is already a stud and was in high school at this time last year. Vonn Bell played great yesterday in my opinion, he showed good instinct and HE TACKLED REALLY WELL. There are so many solid young players Urban has stockpiled.
C Hyde will be hard to replace on offense, he is a BEAST and I hope he has a great NFL career, he really grew up and played hard 100% of the time. However with Braxton coming back and the playmakers we have stockpiled, watch out. Same as the defense, offseason weightlifting program and training will really help out the young guys on offense who show great promise.
2014 is going to be a special year.
