I see the Buckeyes normally running 75 to 80 offensive plays a game. Rarely do they pass 40 times a game, meaning there are at least 40 carries a game for running backs, quarterbacks, and the occasional slot or wr run. Seems to me the rb is going to get 25 or so carries every game, and probably more on average. I can't believe that isn't enough carries to get a 5 star to run behind a normally very stout offensive line. The 5 stars usually come from the south or Texas, and convincing them to learn to wear more than a jacket and flip flops in the wintertime seems to be more than most can handle and the real problem.
I don't think I've ever seen any team in any sport go from so good to so bad so quickly.

I remember the angst we all felt when Antwan Jackson didn't pick the Buckeyes when he signed. And I remember the anticipation when he finally arrived a couple years later. It would be great to see him finally live up to the hype and expectations and become a real force in the d line. It's time.
Their, they're, don't be so judgemental. English is hard.
Watching that video makes me ill again. It can't be healthy to be so completely invested in something that I have no personal control over. But health be damned. God willing, I'll be back next year. Go Bucks. Beat TTUN. Go Bucks, beat Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oregon, .......whoever they put in front of the Buckeyes.
Bo became a ttun legend because of one game in 1969. Didn't matter what he did after that.

Biggest shock on that banner is the 22 year gap from 1984 to 2006!. All those great players and teams in the 90 and no outright championships. There were 6 shared championships though and one of those was a pretty nice undefeated 2002 tie with Iowa.
Watched that game on TV. Hated Dave Winfield ever since.
Agree Illibuck. Clemson deserves another punch up side the head. Make Woody proud.
Better days are coming for Bungles fans. They are named "Joe Burrow" or "Chase Young"!
Has there ever been another season where the same two schools made both the championship games in the same season? I can't think of one. Losing both in '06 was tough, but getting there was historic.
Then why aren't there lots of Delaware Fighting Blue Hen fans too if it's that ugly helmet?
Ditto Silver. I was at the game in '69 and at the Rose Bowl loss to Stanford in '70. With the losses to UCLA in the Rose Bowl and those inexplicable losses ttun in the 90's, I thought I was scared for life. The years since Tressel's speech have healed many of the scars, but that doesn't mean they'll ever go away completely. Another 10 or 15 in a row against ttun and a half dozen Nattys would be appropriate payback. Yup, rub it in their faces.
This game means everything. If they can't beat the skunk weasels, there's no way they can beat LSU, Clemson, or Alabama. This is the season.
7-3-1???? You're ok with 3 losses and a tie? You need an attitude adjustment. Crush the weasels. Always. Every time.
Nothing could be better than beating Michigan, Wisconsin / Minnesota, Alabama, and Clemson IN A ROW!!!!!
I can't believe how much Ohio State football means to this 69 year old man. Gotta quit peeling onions. Go Buckeyes. Beat _ichican
This is the 50th anniversary of _y one and only trip to _ichigan and the big house. I pray this one turns out different.
You can learn the same thing watching tapes of Joe Burrow.
Didn't the Buckeyes get in in '16 when they lost to PSU, non conference 1 loss champ over 1 loss champ PSU?
Per Espin, Auburn will then have 4 "Quality losses" . That makes anyone's win against Auburn a " Quality win"!!! Anything is possible if you make up the rules as you go long.
The 4 teams are going to be LSU, OSU or PSU, Clemson, Alabama or Georgia. LSU is getting in even if they lose to Georgia in the Sec championship. If that happens, Georgia gets in, assuming they beat TAMU and Georgia Tech. Big Ten is going to be OSU or PSU. If Georgia loses to LSU and Bama beats Auburn, Bama will be put in over all other 1 loss teams. The only way any of them pass Alabama is if Auburn beats them. We have seen Alabama get a pass for crappy schedules for 5 years. What makes anyone think that will change now? The media will have a love affair with an "underdog Alabama fighting on with a 2nd string quarterback, even though they lost the Heisman Trophy winner with the best college coach of all time". They will wheel Tua out to the sidelines on a gurney if the have to to keep him in the story.
Chaos is the following: OSU loses to PSU (both teams have one loss. Georgia beats LSU, Alabama beats Auburn, three "championship quality SEC teams" have one loss. How about 3 one loss sec teams in the finals with Clemson. Don't laugh, stupider things have happened.
I love radar charts. What the hell has happened to the 1st and 10 offense since last year????
