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.

After back to back years of back up QB's shining at OSU, who wouldn't want to play there even if they is competition for s a position?

How many total players on the roster? That would be your answer based on the way they are representing the great state of Ohio tonight!!

It was a battering ram because of the use of hide too. Their were not many jet sweeps, there were not as much offensive rotation, there were not as many plays into the flat, and I think they passed more with JT than they did with brax.

I wasn't scared playing MSU last year.................or VT this year. I have been cautiously optimistic ever since.

If Cardale come out and leads the Buckeyes to a good victory, I really hope I don't see another thread about Urb and Herman not knowing what they are doing. It makes me sick sometimes to see people get on sucessful coaches like they don't know what they are doing. I'm sure they may make bad decisions at times like we all do, but even before the results sat night, OSU has some darn good coaches and they don't deserve the some of the negativity that was thrown their way at times this year.

I want to agree with all that but I still need to see Cardale play. If he needs s few games to get adjusted, might not be pretty cause obviously he doesn't have a few games.

i wasn't hesitate with JT cause he has done wonders all season long. 

I'm tired of hearing about how OSU and then B1G can't win against other top teams. And mind you I'm not giving any predictions. I'm just expressing my comfort ability with this whole matter, or lack of, maybe the better way to put it. Hopefully my confidence will be renewed after this Saturday. 

Go Bucks!

So what if you are a desperate NFL team that really, really needs a QB? And you lose out to somebody else getting Mariotta. Since rookies are not given giant amounts money anymore, is it really that bad of a risk?

There could a mix of things. Players are supposed to stay on their assignment but the problem is if they feel they can make a play but it involves them losing their assignment. Pits eaiser to see with db's when they try for interceptions and miss. The WR then catches the ball and walks into the end zone. 

I remember a time when I played ball as a DE. The coaches hammered into us to stick to our assignments. Mine was not let a play get outside of me. I was to turn everything to the inside. Im always to establish a "break down stance at the left end position to assist with my assignment. I had a play once where the o line slanted away from leaving no one to block me. I took a couple of steps to establish my position, break down, and briefly reading the backfield to ensure the was no reverse or trick play before leaving my assignment. The problem with that was the hesitation it caused in my read. It turned out that the QB turned so his back side was towards me and he was looking to pass. I did get to him to hit him but not before he threw it. The coaches yelled at me for hesitating. 

I guess my point is that college football now has so many tricks for the offense that it has made it very hard for the defenses. If you look at the teams with top defenses, their level of offensive competition isn't that high. 

If the defense plays reactionary and not aggressive, they will give up long drives. If the defense plays overly aggressive, they will give up long gains/big plays. Look at the trouble MSU and Narduzzi had against OSU. 

Establishing that balance in today's college football is tough, which is why meyer is pushing for 4-6 A to B as fast as you can. While OSU's has looked suspect at times, it's still improved from last year.
