Every week, Eleven Warriors will dive into the mentions of Ohio State's coaches and players to bring you the #HotTakes and ramblings of Buckeye Nation. This week, we're reveling in the good vibes after a 51-10 demolition of Indiana.
The Buckeyes offense took a little while to warm up in Bloomington, but once they settled, the Hoosiers never stood a chance.
Justin Fields added another four touchdowns to his season total, J.K. Dobbins nearly set a new career high in rushing yards despite playing just one drive in the second half, and Chris Olave is probably still somewhere in Indiana finding new ways to ruin the Hoosiers' day.
It was an all-around performance for the Buckeyes, who dominated in all three phases of the game. The defense, which is shaking the Greg Schiano off itself with each passing week, held its third consecutive opponent to under 275 yards, and the Buckeyes came away with a blocked punt that resulted in a safety.
Cheers all around, y'all. Let's get to the mentions.
@ Ryan Day
Hopefully @ryandaytime @OSUCoachKDub @CoachJeffHafley @CoachWash56 @R2X_Rushmen1 @brianhartline @CoachStudOL @CoachMattBarnes @CoachTonyAlford & @MickeyMarotti have not let the #Buckeyes read their "press clippings' and take Indiana for granted.#GoBucks #OhioState— DR. (@DR10001) September 14, 2019
That was extremely not an issue.
I'm not hating this idea, because I'm starting to think there's very little this guy can't do. Car troubles? Call Olave. Having problems with your personal budget? Call Olave. Is your marriage falling apart? You know what to do. Call Olave.
@OhioStateFB good look 4, 1st half, however can @ryandaytime find out through the rules if the refs can continue to interfere during direct play when #theOSU offense has the ball? May not seem like much but it looks like a lot of interference.#IU lucky so far in calls#OSUvsIU— Redtape Leverage (@Redtapeleverage) September 14, 2019
That poor ref had a worse day than the Hoosiers. He left the field looking like an overly-sauced lasagna.
This is the appropriate gif to summarize the start of Day's head coaching career.
Yes, give the people what they wan!
@ryandaytime and still the undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champion of the world— Bird Man (@vwchadw) September 15, 2019
Buckeye fans are loving their new coach.
@ J.K. Dobbins
Pretty sure that would've been a war crime, considering what he did to the Indiana defense in essentially half a game.
I find this extremely relatable.
@Jkdobbins22 best running back in the country— cleary (@HunterJCleary) September 14, 2019
Y'all went crazy when Dobbins did this.
Damn @Jkdobbins22 really just broke 6 tackles on his way to the house— Ben (@Ben_A7) September 14, 2019
This man dobbins just owned 6 grown men— Brandon 4HW (@SportsTalk43) September 14, 2019
I see you slime @Jkdobbins22— Mike Weber (@mikeweberjr) September 14, 2019
Did... did we know Mike Weber called Dobbins, "slime?" Is that a thing? Because it weirds me out.
That was strangely my first impression of Dobbins when he shredded this Indiana defense two years ago in his first start. There's definitely a Sanders-esque vibe to his running style.
Parris Campbell approves.

Hank Schrader approves as well.
@ Justin Fields
@justnfields in the building— Bow (@natebowman11) September 14, 2019
Well I would certainly hope so.
It's been more than 5 minutes and @justnfields hasn't scored a touchdown.— Daniel Burdon (@daniel_burdon) September 14, 2019
Is he hurt?
Thank you for coming to Ohio state @justnfields— (@ceejaywinston) September 14, 2019
I'd like to echo this sentiment.
@justnfields might be one of the most duel threat quarterbacks Ohio states had in a long time we have such a great line of quarterbacks Miller Barrett Jones Haskins and now Fields its good to be a buckeye fan— Justin Butler (@jbutler7451163) September 14, 2019
He's just duel threat-ing really good.

// Chef's kiss //
Yeah Fields. Get your accuracy up, because your season average of // checks notes // over 70 percent is inadequate.
Yes, very good game.
@ Chris Olave
My Twitter is officially going to be dedicated to @chrisolave_— The Weekend Hack (@WeekendHack_YT) September 14, 2019
Not a bad thing to dedicate your account to, in my honest opinion.
Olave is the best punt blocker ever! @chrisolave_— Better Burko (@BurkoDallas) September 14, 2019
@chrisolave_ can do everything!!!!— Arodx34x (@its_ya_boi_arod) September 14, 2019
