MEMBER SINCE   November 11, 2006

In the 11W game since November 2006, Chris has seen the site grow from the days of one or two posts to the coverage bonanza you experience today. A lifelong Columbus resident, his love for Ohio State was instilled at an early age by a Pop that spoke of Ohio State football and basketball with a professor's insight creating a passion now channeled through our corner of the Buckeye blogosphere. When not at home with his lovely wife and daughter, Chris spends time at the golf course, collecting vinyl records and chasing Phish across the country.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: It's a tie. I'm a diehard Buckeye and Yankee fan so...
    1. Seeing Ohio State beat Miami for the one and only national title of my lifetime
    1A. Seeing the Yankees win the '96 series. It wasn't the first of my lifetime but the first since I began religiously following them in 1983 when Mattingly was called up for good from Columbus.

Nah... Joshua is working with a local track team and had a Meet The Team event last night. He has a ton of side hustles whether it be real estate, his foundation, the track thing, working with us, doing stuff with Bucknuts etc.

The three of us have a rule that if one guy misses the show - he's going to get clowned on. Joshua just happens to miss more shows than the two of us lol.

It was head-scratching to me in that, while I agree with everything you noted, Weber still managed 5.5 ypc under those same realities. And last year, it was reversed in that it was Dobbins who averaged basically a yard more per carry than Weber (7.2 to 6.2).

I hear you but don't think it's that simple obviously. The defense wasn't great in a lot of areas but it rank 39th in yards per play and 19th in tackles for loss. Yards per play number isn't fantastic but not horrific by any stretch and the TFLs being top-20 at 6.5 per game suggests plenty of negative plays. Not elite, but not terrible. 

The defense faced 205 third downs, that was 27th most in the country, as a whole number. Not trying to defend this defense by any stretch, lol, just sharing some additional context.
