all the players on the team have talent

its their commitment to learning and improving in their role on the team that is their burden, and theirs alone

the coaches are expected only to provide them instructional guidance

so, anyone questioning why they ain’t playing should endeavor to learn why the player isn’t doing their part, amirite?

it is just business

I'm curious, why in this new era where all players know what everyone is doing across the USA in Power 5 conference college football, do a significant number consider their work done when they see success? The elite sure don't, and then they get their just rewards - top honors and top salary in the pros. That would be the next step for tOSU program -- getting all of the players committed to elite excellence during their entire careers

I believe the coaching staff are equipped to create an offense to maximize the talent they coach up, because they have the keys to a program built to an elite level by those who came before them, and they will not fail. They know full well failure is not an option. Only massive misfortune of crippling injuries will derail their plans. Every college team has 18-22 year olds, and all the top teams must deal with the cards they have.
