For sure. Everyone better managing turnovers, Keyshawn shooting better than 19% from 3-point land in Big Ten play if he's going to log 25 mpg for whatever reason, Young avoiding his own foul troubles etc.
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.
Not saying special teams can't improve but a stat that surprised me from this past season: Ohio State ranked 2nd in the country in opponent starting field position with teams starting drives, on average, 73.9 yards from the end zone.
I wouldn't call my article analysis. I was just having some fun with numbers on a shitty winter weather night in Columbus.
Obviously Harbaugh is a huge upgrade over Hoke (although lol if that's a benchmark for anyone) and the UM program is at least trending favorably overall whereas Hoke was a sinking ship.
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.
By comparison to past OSU seasons, it is bad. Or at least, exceptionally average.
