Love the breakdown! I hate to bring this play up, but....this is like the last play against Clemson. Fields throws before Olave breaks, which he had done so many other times during the season with great success. Still bothers me that throw didn’t connect like countless others. That being said, I’m hoping that Fields and the younger receivers get to work on familiarizing themselves with each other, now that they’re back on campus! It takes a lot of timing to make the play like the one above to Mack work. Hopefully they don’t miss experience in the receiver room too much! Or just make up for it with superior talent! Go Bucks!

100% with Andy on this! The only pause I have is if they even get into the playoff without 59-0 against Wisconsin. If they win 38-14 with JT they might have finished 5 or 6. I have no doubt JT beats Alabama and Oregon though. In addition to what Andy mentions above.....People act like Devin Smith wasn’t catching long TDs before Cardale (see 2012 MSU, 2013 Cal, 2014 MSU just to name a few)...or that Zeke wasn’t running like crazy earlier in the year (minus broken wrist early on) and after. David doesn’t mention Cardale’s turnovers/mistakes in the playoff leading to bama’s early lead and keeping Oregon even close. Then goes on to mention only some of JT’s “big games” (only the ones he passed poorly in, and still won 3 of those btw) without mentioning any of his rushing yards or touchdowns. Bottom line...that team was peaking at the right time, and had more talent than the teams they faced. It was just young sophomore talent that wasn’t well known nationally yet.

Thanks for this post! An under appreciated star. JT 2014 was amazing. And yes they win the title with him. They may not have made the playoff (might not have 59-0), but they would’ve beaten Bama and Oregon. 2015 was largely not his fault (horrible coaching and split time). 2016 the offense was limited as a whole (again horrible coaching and play calling). Name the best receiver on the 2016 team not named Curtis Samuel....it was a defensive team that backed into the playoff and ran into a generational qb and great defense for Clemson. 2017 JT does not get enough credit. Incredible historic production statistically. Relatively bad defense and special teams that year put him in some bad situations. Bottom line...great leader, winner, and one of the best qbs we’ve seen.

Was just about to post the same thing about the defense. It’s hard to be better than the best defense in the country, and one of the best in school history. We as OSU fans get a little spoiled sometimes. You could say the same about quarterback on some message boards. All the sudden JT is one of the worst throwing qbs in Buckeye history. People seem to forget he was (statistically) literally the best we’ve ever had until Haskins and fields came along.

The graph is interesting. It suggests that TFLs aren’t the only thing that’s important. You can still have a great defense without being ranked best in the nation in this category. 2016 was a great defense. More so because the secondary was so talented though. 2019 had both obviously. 2020 D will have to step up in one way or another (hopefully both!). GO BUCKS!

My now wife, and fellow graduate of THE Ohio State University, is from San Diego. When she first came to Columbus, she was at the Gateway movie theater and she asked a worker what a Buckeye was. The worker just pointed to a life size model of Brutus and went about her day. Of course my wife was super confused lol. So yeah it’s definitely a weird mascot. But it’s part of who we are, and having lived here now for 11 years she is a Buckeye through and through!

One of the all-time greats! Wish it would’ve ended differently for him and this team, but the best team doesn’t always win. Also wish they voted for all the awards after the bowl games. You can’t tell me JK isn’t the best RB in the big ten, or the nation for that matter! Thanks for the memories JK!

Definitely agree! Not sure why either Pac-12 team is above Penn State. Neither have a great out of conference win, or even a great conference win, as the rest of the Pac-12 is mediocre at best. And they haven’t played each other yet. Also both of their losses seem to be worse than the Penn State loss.

Most dominant game of football I’ve ever seen in person or otherwise! We were planning to go to the game for a few weeks. JT gets hurt in the Xichigan game, and we’re all sitting there shocked at the shoe deciding if we should still buy tickets. Only knew that Cardale was from Glenville, nothing else. Decided to make the trip. “It’ll be fun even though we might lose”. LOL. Best decision ever!

Sometimes kids just have a “not great game”. Look at Beanie Wells against Youngstown State in 2007. 16 carries; 46 yards. No one remembers that game. They remember Beanie being a beast all season. Not “what was wrong with Beanie in the first game?”. Perspective and expectations need to be adjusted in general. Also 92 yards and 1 touchdown per game leads to an 1100 yard season with 12 touchdowns. Go Bucks!
