I saw the same thing. Don't know for certain it was all Borland, but the DL wasn't filling the gaps like normal. I wondered if it wasn't something they were doing to disguise what they'd be doing against Wisky. If they don't play better against them, Taylor will tear the Bucks apart. I thought the OL didn't play as well as normal either. Maybe not having Mumford was a bigger deal than I thought it would be. Dobbins had a bunch of 1 or 2 yard runs. The Offense ran the ball 34 times for 275 yards and about 200 were on 3 runs. 31 runs for 75 yards is a problem. Next week needs to be a much better performance.

Used to be there were s few bad calls in the league every weekend. Now, there are numerous bad calls in every game. I can't believe the refs have become physically worse doing their jobs though. I believe the issue is the rules and the changes that have been made in the past 3 or 4 years. More and more situations are being covered by subjective interpretations of vague, contrived rules. Each referee's interpretation is different and it changes over time. This is subject to review and that isn't. Who knows what is and isn't and why? Referees make calls and expect replay to fix it. Holding is allowed to some extent on every play and then gets to the point where it magically be called. Receivers are not to be touched after 5 yards but then are mugged, and sometimes it's called and sometimes it isn't. Try to figure out what roughing the passer is or isn't? I don't see how coaches and players know what they can do and what they can't. It has become almost unwatchable at times.

After watching some of the slugs playing backup quarterback in the NFL this year, I have a hard time believing Cardle or JT can't catch on with a team. And Braxton and Terrelle Pryor aren't good enough to catch passes? In fact, Green Bay looked like they could have used some pass or punt catchers last night. I don't get it.

No doubt we've had great centers in the past (hence Center U) and Myers is only a red shirt soph, but by the time he's finished and off the the NFL, I think he may be the best ever here. Left tackle get the pub and the big money, but for my money, centers are the critical position on the line. They need to be really good linemen technically and physically, and really smart to handle the calls and blocking assignments for the rest of the line. Offenses go nowhere without a good center.

Urban is a psych major. He is using the mindset used by golfers in match play. Always expect your opponent to make that long putt or chip shot. Expecting your opponent to screw up and give you the hole because your are in a strong position is a sure way to lose a match in the long run. The thing to do is expect your opponent to be good and then crush them.

Since unexpectedly winning it all 2014 with a third string quarterback, these are the Ohio State games games the national media (and that well known college football expert Heather Dinich) remember: 2015, losing to a poor MSU team, 2016 getting waxed by Clemson 31-0, 2017 getting blown out by a mediocre Iowa team, getting waxed by a bad Purdue team. Till the Buckeyes force their way into the playoffs as undefeated Big 10 champions and kick these other teams to the curb like Sherman's march to the sea, the experts and the media will never give them the respect due. It's up the the Buckeyes to fix this. No amount of whining on our part is going to change anything.
