You can't use logic with the mentally challenged.

1) Forget that it is generally acknowledged that Oho State played the strongest schedule in the country.

2) Discount that the loss was to Penn St. due to a botched/blocked punt and a weird score on a botched/blocked field goal. and please ignore the stats of that game that show who clearly dominated it.

3) Avoid considering the fact that Ohio State had to play two night games back to back on the road with top 2 top 10 teams who both had 2 weeks to prepare for them due to byes (Penn St. being the second).

The Buckeye offensive problems aren't all Beck's fault (but it is best that he go). But why didn't the O-line improve? Why didn't the abundance of 4 and 5 star receivers show no progress?

It pains me to say this but I think it is critical that wholesale changes are made with the coaching on the offensive side of the ball or I think we could very well begin to see a program in decline somewhat, with kids deciding to go to elsewhere and Urban deciding to hang it up.

Who knew.

Seriously, the offense never improved all season and that is coaching. Decent opponents in the last half of the season knew our weakness and only defense kept us hanging in those games.

Warinner needs to go back to coaching the O-line. Smith needs help with the receivers. Don't ask me about Beck.

I always wanted Tress to explain exactly what happened in 2006 but he never said much. Of course we heard rumors that Troy gained weight and was too busy making rounds on the Heisman circuit to attend all the practices.

But I think the clearest and most logical explanation came from several players who later said that they never saw any of the schemes Florida used that night on any film they watched and they were never a part of the game plan.

Urban had too much time to prepare an improving and excellent Florida team.

Understand where you are coming from since it is common for the Buckeyes to be "up" for a top team early in the year. That always gives fans a lot of optimism for the year until reality of a long season against good B1G teams brings us down to earth.

That said, I do think this is a tourney team and that Thad has enough talent on this team to make life hell for the teams at the top of the conference.

Just when I thought Saban and Urban would be facing each other for National Championships nearly every year, someone throws a Herman lead Texas team into the mix.

I can hear Dantonio's speech to his Spartans now.

"The Buckeyes are busy talking about how they should make the playoffs after they beat the next 2 teams. One of those is us, men. They don't respect the fact that they have to play us in our house and earn their shot. How many of you are sick and tired of these so called elites taking for granted our team and program? What are we going to do about it ?".
