I find the kicks out of bounds inexcusable. The risk/reward of stopping them behind the 25 yard line is nominal in my opinion. That being said, in Urban I trust...just maybe not Clinton's right shoelaces.
This is my wife's favorite time of year... When both Buckeye football and basketball are going on for my viewing pleasure.
Nutty I couldn't agree with you more. I don't mind Herbie, I think early on he tried to not look like a homer in an unrealistic lens. While we all want his Buckeye pride to show through a bit more I don't think it ever will. What's probably more frustrating for a lot of us to see him on ESPN with their story lines.
Not saying that they can't. I believe the Illinois game was the 3rd game this year Jalin has ran out of the wildcat. It was however, the first time that he threw the football. Don't get me wrong, the philosophy of holding a few wrinkles back for big games is truly the only thing I miss about Tresselball. Go Bucks!
Does anyone else miss the philosophy on offense of holding a few wrinkles back until a big game, instead of showing your hand to force teams to spend time preparing for it? I feel like Herman and Meyer like to force teams to spend time preparing instead of completely catching them off guard.
I also think it will be critical for us to run a few counters off of our base plays very early to keep Michigan State on their toes and maybe give us the half step we need later in the game.

Shhh don't point this out to any of the College Football Playoff Committee, let ESPN run with it :-)
Let's just consider ourselves blessed with 2 baller, experienced QBs on the roster next year. Enjoy this season now and let's dream about all of the creative plays that could be drawn up with both of them on the field.
Like Whoa. Love the Dubcast!
Pretty please make one of these every week!
Upvotes for everyone! Thank you all for your insight! Family is most important and fear the wrath of my wife if I try to listen/watch the game on my phone. These are friends of the family and their impressionable boys look up to me as a role model. While it's not my ideal situation on game day I've decided to shut off electronic devices and DVR the game as usual and hope to get caught up at some point in the 3rd quarter.
I'm superstitious and thought the idea of not wearing Buckeye gear was a good one, unfortunately due to my quirks I won't be able to accomplish this in full. But plan on wearing my Buckeye gear under a jacket hidden from other parents obligated to be at the games.
Devin Smith - 133 yards.
Couldn't agree more about SOA.
A little exposed? Plumbers butt is "A Little Exposed". This was a full on frontal. I hope we can add some wrinkles of our own...screen pass or draw would be nice. VA Tech just gave everyone else the blueprint of how to stop this young team.
Frustrating loss for sure. We got outplayed in all aspects of the game. Id much rather this happen at the beginning of the season than in November or during a bowl game. This team is flawed, I'm hoping our offensive play calling evolves real quick.
Thanks Kbonay! Up votes for you! You could tell a pretty drastic difference on TV as far as the Scarlet Out. Lots of C Deck especially I'm the corners looked dark.
