We thrive on 3rd downs; forces us to play with intensity and we generally rise to the occasion. And they are often 3rd and longish which makes it better for us. Fields has made some great plays keeping drives alive with his feet before unleashing accurate passes on the move.

What if you wanted to score touchdowns

Dominant performance. 

Head north till you smell it, west until you step in it

Both of these teams are tough as nails.

The lord of brevity.

Yep, but we are 3 1/2 ring-shank sinkers and they are 18 gauge brad nails.

Off topic but Olave looks like a speed skater in that photo.

Olave has been so clutch and Dobbins showed why he should be considered for the Heisman. What a hard fought victory. Now let’s heal up and get ready for the next one. Go Bucks!

This is the best Ohio State team I've ever seen. They are laser focused.

Quote from SB nation :

“Ohio State didn’t just expose Wisconsin’s weaknesses, it overpowered UW’s strengths. Nobody’s stopping Ohio State this year. No way, no how”

Old guys remember 1969 and 1975.  Not so fast.  There will be plenty of time to put this team on a pedestal after the championship game.  It is the best and most balanced I can recall in the last 45 years.  Now get off my lawn.

Our people are everywhere, Esto Dignus.

Olave is an All-American WR. He had several 3rd down catches.

The scary thing is there is things which can be tweaked/improved/evolve where this team gets better. 1) Olave gets more snaps at WR than any of the other WR’s - he caught 2 Td’s against Northwestern but still only played like 20 snaps which was 4th or 5th in the WR room for the game?????

2) Garrett Wilson gets the second most snaps at WR. 

3) Garrett Wilson becomes the primary punt returner!

4) Pass Pro can definitely be improved. Yea, sometimes Fields holds it to long but picking up blitz packages can be improved. 

All that said this is easily the most balanced Ohio State team I have seen. Both sides of the ball. Running and passing.
