JF needs to stop putting the ball on the ground. Thats 2 wks in a row he fumbled going in for a score or near score.
Not a great stat game for Fields, but he still put up 38 pts!
Yep, Buckeyes BUCKEYE'D em! Hey, Wisky, bet you'd love to have our run game, huh?
Its amazing how much better your defense can be when your DBs can actually see the QB and the ball.
The Urbmeister was in love with JT's running.
i'll give Fields a little slack because of inexperience, but 3 TOs the last 2 games might be something to worry about.
Hey, Sparty, we didnt play nearly our best game and you STILL GOT BUCKEYE'D!.........GO BUCKS!
FAU - BUCKEYE'D
Cincy - BUCKEYE'D
IU - BUCKEYE'D
Miami(Ohoi) - BUCKEYE'D
Neb. - BUCKEYE'D !
I guess i'm in that "certain" portion of the fan base. A win is a win is a win, sure.............but. While some will say the team took a nap after the 1st qtr., i say they quit. And, Day couldnt get them refocused at the half. Seven straight possessions w/o a score of any kind? Come on. And, after the 1st qtr., F fuckin AU actually outplayed us. Even the announcers pointed out that the Bucks had "lost their sense of urgency". Not good. Some things to build on? Absolutely. But, right now, i'm a little concerned about the D and the team attitude.
Its a long season. GO BUCKS!
Took the words right out of my mouth, BE. THREE QB transfers in 2 yrs. Optics not Good.
We havent lost any commits? Im pretty sure I read on 11W shortly after UM resigned that we lost 2, including a 5* OG.
Cardale TRUCKED 300# defensive tackles, good ones. I dont see TRAIN doing that.......hahaha.
I would argue that the Silver bullets are the reason we won. They played lights out.
We HAVE a ST coach. Maybe he needs to work OT. Oh, wait...........
JT does pretty well on straight line throws. The '14 season aside, he hasnt done so well down field when he has to put some touch/air under it.. Anyway, i great record for him.
Ward got absolutely sliced, diced and tossed like a salad in the 1st half. Seconf half, not so much.
And....Devin caught a lot of those TDs with guys hangin all over him. Love you, Devin.
Seemed like JT got a ton of balls batted down last yr. WRs/QBs were 5-11 on hookups of 20+yds in the spring game, and 3 of those were from Burrows. Those #s dont exactly make my hear flutter.
Chaz, im sure you're aware that MOST football plays come down to execution. Therein lies the problem. And, as Kyle, points out, it wasnt just a one group problem. Theres plenty of criticism to go around. Im not so hard on the play calling as some on here, tho it was certainly a factor in some games. Execution, or lack thereof, is the crux of the matter.
Whether it be WRs not getting open, running wrong/poor routes, drops or the Oline not blocking consistantly. As we've seen in our last 2 NCs, a dominant Dline wins games. Often, our Oline was dominated. I know some will point to Weber's 1,000+ yrds. and say how bad could the Oline have been? It was BAD to average. We're an Oline driven team, remember?
Now, we come to JT. I love me some JT, but he certainly seemed to have "regressed" last yr. Whether it be missing wide open receivers, or not seeing wide open receivers or a new QB coach. Also, is it just me, or does JT get a LOT of balls tipped at the LOS?
Execution. EVERY play is designed to be successful if it is executed properly. Lack of execution will make ANY called play look bad.
Lets GO BUCKS!
Dont forget that the team was on an emotional high, too. Lost a teammate to suicide, lost Barrett, and had to rally behind Cardale. Everyone seemed to step up their games.
Wait.......the defense was awesome? I admit that 2 INTs is good, but 31pts? Almost 500 total yrds? I dont remember, how many sacks did we have? And 5.5 YPC? Granted, no 100 yd. rusher or 100 yd WR for Clemson. That just doesnt add up to awesome.
I think he comes back. Love me some JT, too., but honestly, i dont see him as NFL quality QB.
Devin Smith. He caught those balls with guys hanging all over him, except the 1 that the DB fell down.
Is it just me, or did JT get a TON of passes tipped at the LOS this yr? Not all on him, the OL looked like they were playing mud up to their knees. Now we know why everyone outside tOSU calls us orverrated. Damn frustrating.
