I'm beginning to realize that Ryan Day's attention to detail exceeds that of his predecessor, and he seems to be handling the pressure in an outstanding way. Hell, he's having a ball doing it.

I'll wait for the results to catch up to the standards he's setting before proclaiming him as the best coach in college football, but the Buckeyes have a very special head coach now, and I am going to enjoy every second of the ride!

While Hartline deserves much of the credit for improving the WR corps, it's equally important to develop the QBs to actually deliver the ball and for the coaches to call the offensive plays.

I think Day will be the perfect head coach and dare I say surpass the success that Meyer had!

In the recruiting story, it's cute how the Florida fellows appear to be doing the Baby Shark (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo), the Penn State gang appear to be flossing (with helmets!) and the Missouri team are about to perform their best M.C. Hammer routine. Some programs will do anything to land a recruit.

Meanwhile in the land of Harbaugh, they're singing, "The wheels on the bus go round and... WTF! What happened to the wheels?!!!"

If not for the 12 penalties for 150 yards, it would have been much worse of a beatdown. OSU was able to do whatever it wanted on offense and the defense played its best game. I'm still not a fan of the secondary's technique where they pay no attention to the ball. There were more interceptions to be had there. In the end, it may still not be enough to get into the playoff, but damn, that win felt good! Now let's destroy Northwestern and see how the chips fall. Go Bucks!

If both teams play their best, then Ohio State wins big. I think this is The Game where our secondary nabs an interception or two. I think we will do a good job stopping Higdon and disrupting Patterson. We might give up a couple of big plays to their tall tight ends, but I think Haskins and Company will be able to pick apart TTUN's defense. I hope the penalties are few as those have a habit of biting us at the worst times. As usual, past performance is no indication of future success. But we have not played close to our potential in quite a while and we tend to play to the level of our competition. I think they'll be up for this Game and we will put it all together. Go Bucks!

Only a handful of penalties, but they were costly. I'm concerned by the bail technique being used by the secondary. MSU could have abused us all day if they had a better QB. The pass rush has diminished, but that may have been intentional. We were good against the run. Better (mostly) play from the LBs. It seems as though someone/something is getting in Haskins' head. In some cases, he looks like he's thinking too much in the same way that JTB did. Earlier in the season, he was just letting it fly. Dropped passes were another disappointment. Happy with the W. On to Maryland.

A highlight video is supposed to highlight the player, not the video editor who demonstrated his mastery of every. single. effect. on. every. single. clip. Star Wars called. They want their cheesy transitions back.

Regardless, BOOM!

Nice recruiting win 

Comment 22 Oct 2018

Not only have the glaring issues not been fixed, but they have actually gotten worse as the season has gone on. We. Keep. Jamming. That. Square. Peg. Into. The. Round. Hole.

Methinks some tough coaching changes are in order. Not sure if Urban can do it.

Offensive Line / DB-Safeties / Linebacker / Running backs / Quarterbacks / Defensive Coordinator

I'll give Hartline the benefit of the doubt as e'staking over for Smith and there has been improvement. Day and Wilson are money, when not hampered by Urban's conservatism and stubbornness. Larry Johnson is the best.

Comment 21 Oct 2018

Did Urban Meyer and Hue Jackson have one of those Freaky Friday switches? Because the Buckeyes have been getting worse week after week and Urban keeps saying we had great practices and we're really close to putting it all together. Week after week, mediocre teams looks like title contenders because we can't really stop them. Week after week, we have stupid penalties, dropped passes and poor coaching. I think the identity of the team was clear with Ryan Day in charge. Now, there isn't one. Not sure why.

Comment 14 Oct 2018

Isaiah Pryor had a (mostly) glaringly awful game. Pretty sure he got pulled for a while. Injuries on the defensive line definitely hurt the Buckeyes. Without a significant pass rush, Minnesota's pass and run game were much better than they should have been. I hope that the "eighth time's a charm!" and the team actually fixes the same things that have been evident since the first game - linebacker play, DB/Safety play, dropped easy passes, stupid penalties, power running game, etc. We are not playing with swagger and imposing our will against lesser teams. It looked as though OSU expected to win just by showing up. There's a lot to fix and time is running out.

Comment 23 Aug 2018

If Brian Voltolini is the one who went up to Urban and showed him how to change the setting on his phone to delete messages older than a year, then it's incorrect to portray that action as one of Urban's first after the story broke.

We are all painfully aware what an incompetent media (not 11W specifically) can do with any snippet of information they feverishly report while at the same time not having any idea of the full context. It's a lesson I doubt they are teaching in Journalism School anymore.

Glad to be putting this in our rear view mirror!
