My mom, dad and brother graduated at Ohio State University. I have an Associates degree from Columbus State and was working towards a Bachelors at OSU but have yet to complete it.

The other problem with polls are the criteria to be a top 10 team. I don't believe there is a standard to reference. Should teams be based on "W"s and "L"s? Or is it more than that? Should teams be judged by margin of victory? 

I hear people talk about the negative of polls but I haven't seen a post that would suggest a better way of ranking teams. 

I try to imagine what it would be like without pre-season polls. When would they start? And would that mean every undefeated team is tied for #1 in the nation? I do like seeing the similarities and differences between the AP and the Coaches poll.

I surely don't have the answers and have accepted that the current poll system. I do think that the BCS poll is close to making things seem fair. Maybe tweak the formula a little bit.

What I liked about this game was that I think OSU made more starters than any other school and they all performed well. Philly Brown, Cam Heyward, and Shazier.

While that may be true, I would say that it could depend on the amount of pride he has for TTUN. It may not be amount money and just the simple thought of bringing real, tough football back to TTUN. If you had the ability to turn around a program for the better and end the after year embarrassment, that could be all the motivation you need.

Lol, UV to you good sir. And I wonder how many of the people in these posts are football coaches?

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I see you easily forgot the amount of offense that was put up last year, breaking all kinds of Ohio State team and individual awards. 

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Looking back, Herman should have dialed up screens, more quick slants, and some TE's over the middle. The TE was not used (other than blocking), I only recall one quick slant (turned out to be a long TD) and one over thrown screen to Dontrae. 

Those types of plays/routes are typically the kind that beats constant blitzing like what VT was doing.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I have not re-watched the VT game but I don't remember even attempting many rushes. Can't say that it is impossible to run the ball with only a few attempts.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I'm interested in seeing Indiana and Missouri in the polls now.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I wonder how much of spending almost the entire off season preparing for Navy (Meyer's words) affected the following week against VT?

Comment 21 Sep 2014

As a fan, I felt more dis-respected by the OSU coaches not having screens and TE's over the middle to counter all the constant blitzing by VT.

Sometimes it just comes down to talent and execution. The schemes in college football are trendy and if you don't jump on board right away to reap the benefits, counter schemes will be developed to slow or stop the progress.

As many of you posted already, I believe this Cincy game will be a big test for the Defense. 

Comment 21 Sep 2014

It isn't always a prevent defense. The 4 DB's are not always dropping back expecting deep routes. As stated in the article, they play to the offense. The cover 4 can be man on man one play, then be zone the next play. They react to the receivers running the routes. I think in some ways this allows the LB to be more comfortable in his reactions.

This however does answer my question on why we haven't seen much in the way of blitzing the CB's or safeties. 

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Hoosiers did good against a ranked SEC opponent...................so if the bottom of the B1G can beat a ranked SEC school.............what does that mean?

Comment 21 Sep 2014

At least the pass defense allowed "0" yards today to go along with "0" points allowed.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

All of them!

Comment 18 Sep 2014

You can hear it especially if you listen for it. I have 2 sides in this. While it is vulgar and promotes violence, it comes across a little comical because I know that the University has been trying to stop it but I can still hear it every game on TV.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

I'm kind of fond of Krenzel because he won us a National Title and is a great person off the field.
