  • SPORTS MOMENT: In the park grand slam HR in the 7th inning to advance to the championship of the Dublin, Ohio Tuesday night Co-Rec Softball League (2004).

    Oh, you mean best "actual" sports moment? Storming the field after Will Allen's interception on the end line with 0:01 remaining on the clock to beat Michigan and advance to the National Championship (November 23, 2002). Best moment ever.

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.

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.
