Man Garrett sure doesn’t look or play like a Freshman. And 33 had a few big tackles. Didn’t he run down Levis out of the pocket on a scramble?

Harrison was used in a 4-2-5 defensive scheme. He did not line up at his usual defensive end position. Instead, he was strategically placed at defensive tackle next to Rashod Berry.

With Tyreke Smith and Chase Young playing on the ends, the athletic four-man front was a success as Young, Smith and Baron Browning were able to drop Sean Clifford for an 8-yard sack.

Is this the new "Rushmen" package? If so, I like it. 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Major H,
Yes, I believe it is. In obvious passing situations in previous games, the Buckeyes would sometimes use a 3 man front and have some or all of the linebackers walk up to the line. 

This is the first time that I can remember (in 2019) in which they used four DEs at the same time.

Thanks, Matt! Let's see lots more of this formation, because that means lots more 3rd and longs!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Browning has had a couple of sacks this year. He gets there in a hurry and with bad intent.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

Screw the recruiting rankings. This class is beyond their 2019 National ranking, we all knew that because the QUALITY was there. The kids HAVE NOT disappointed and will really take this exceptional year and drive it forward. They are seeing and learning so much and it will continue to pay dividends!!

OSU’s average player rating was very high. The recruiting ranking was lower than usual because there were fewer available spots.

I think we should’ve had targeted him more after that play where he broke a few tackles he needs to be targeted more for the next few games and have a justyn Ross freshman type playoff run
