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 ?".

There is no downfield threat and that is partially a JT problem because he is missing the mark. Most of his shorter passes are thrown just a split second too late also. He is just not the same passer after he came back from injury. Maybe losing Herman has something do do with that too.

The problem on Sat. was that the offensive coaches believed that the Buckeyes O-line could man-handle the PSU D-line and there was no backup plan. There has been no backup plan all year. You have to ask yourself what happens in practice that JT and receivers are not improving by leaps and bounds when it is obvious that this team has a weak link. Piss poor coaching plain and simple.

A regular occurrence in college football is that young men practice hard and play hard but psychologically they are not fully engaged mentally into playing a game. Great teams can get by with that lack of focus on skill alone, but most will get beat by a prepared team that just wants it more.

WTF do these guys practice every week.

A crowded room full 4 and 5 star receivers and nobody but a TE and H-backs can catch a ball.

I am sorry to say this because I love JT but he never got back the touch he had in 2014. He is a thrower and not a passer. Now it has become obvious to every defensive coordinator and they will not only pressure him, but make HIM beat them with his arm.

Penn State is an improving club that will win out after this game and finish 9-3 with their strength of schedule. They will keep this one closer than the line with the extra time to prepare. The Buckeye D will probably see lots of slants, screens with occasional shots taken downfield to those solid receivers. Barkley will get his yards.

Watch out for the crowd affecting the signal calling and some penalties on the O-line stalling drives. A fumble or an interception or 2 could keep it real close until the end.
