Clearly a very level headed approach to this situation by the Bosa family. Tough situation, but the right call for Nick. GO BUCKS!
I predict he shreds Michigan... again. But to be fair, that is just my opinion.
He’s converting third downs with his arm. Similar to many NFL offenses. We are in an “abnormal” period by OSU standards where the run is secondary to the passing game. Even Urban is on the cusp of embracing this.
Tate’s time will be next year, and we can go back to complaining that the QB runs too much.
Jesus. I can’t even read these message boards anymore. We have by far the best QB in the 128 year history of Ohio State football and there are people calling for the backup to be put in.
When you have a Porsche, it’s absolutely fine to leave the Corvette in the garage.
Obviously they are not “consistently” failing to convert on 3rd and 4th down short yardage - they are definitely converting their share. The question is, why feel that running is still your highest percentage option on 3rd and 2 when you have a QB this accurate, and receivers this open all over the field, and your offensive line is providing such excellent pass protection? Because it is your system? A collection of data points from the past that you base all of your critical decision making upon? Maybe, the challenge is to change your approach a little and take advantage of what opportunities exist right now.
Dwayne should have thrown the ball 10-15 more times than he did yesterday in my opinion.
Addendum: Whomever was responsible for the two called QB runs up the gut (I think they were both on first or second down) should be written up and fined by Gene Smith. Further, Schiano should be running laps all day today for burning that second timeout on a 3rd and 28 in our own side of the field. Who the hell burns that timeout?! He shut down 108,000 OSU fans screaming their heads off all three times in the first half. C’mon, man.
Dwayne is without a doubt on a clear path to be the best QB to play for Ohio State in our glorious 128 year history. If he keeps this up he will be our 8th Heisman Trophy winner...
That said, he should not be the last great pro style QB here. This is the lesson we should be taking away from this moment of greatness we are experiencing as fans.
I choose to never be one of those guys who complain about who “should” have started last year or what have you, but I will advocate for change in the future. This season is evidence of what is possible and what could and should be expected in the future.
Urban is being challenged to change his approach to running the offense, and hopefully he is willing to grow and adapt - even at this stage of his life and career. I would bet on it.
I really hope we can hang onto Coach Day one more season.
There is nothing wrong with the running game - it’s just that the passing game so so good, and we aren’t used to it. In my humble opinion, it was not necessary for the coaching staff to even try to make it a balanced attack. (I just looked at box score: 48 runs, 44 passes.) DH could have thrown 10 or 15 more passes easilly and completely obliterated the record book tonight. Receivers were open all over the place, and Dwayne was rarely (almost never) hurried.
“OHHHH! What up, cousin!” LOL
If you have to ask, you may be a redneck.
PA rednecks are redneckier than OH rednecks.
LB corps looked overmatched out there.
Dabo is a formidable opponent.
I love the brotherhood supporting their own.
Now the Steelers can swoop in and install the heir apparent to Roethlisberger. #KingDolodale
Baron Browning 6’6” 250#! Man, I hope that is accurate.
I’m embarrassed for having argued on these comment sections in the past that Smith was underpaid.
One of the best days of the year when that envelope arrives.
Bob Evans is ass.
Great punch line. Terrible breakfast assessment.
I sat next to a couple of Bama fans at the Sugar Bowl and seeing their joy and hubris turn to sadness and despair was the sweetest schadenfreude I have ever tasted.
