I'm no Kyle, but their 3rd down was brutal.  I think about things that have looked horrible to play against, and blitzes from Michigan State and Clemson are two of them.  I'm not sure how much this ultimately contributed, but this seemed to be the main thing that we couldn't do on offense.  (Oddly, we had a better 3rd down conversion rate than they did.)

As some mentioned above, we got burned by playing the CB in man years ago.  They would just run the jet sweep, and the CB would get caught in the wash or have poor leverage to make a tackle without a sizable gain.  So we switched to rotating the coverage (before this 1-high safety look), which lets the safety close with leverage, sometimes for loss rather than 5+ yard gain.

1) Joe Burrow was in because he was from Ohio (over some kid from Cali, I think, who was valued on the same level).

2) Almost all of the arguments are PICK OHIO KIDS versus PICK NATIONAL KIDS, with no regard to the whole "if they're equal talents."  It's probably lying beneath the surface but not properly written.  For example, I tend to fall into the National crowd, but that's essentially "pick the national kid if he's better," which some people still have a problem with, and why a lot of people get lumped into the National First group.

I was born near Toledo and was a Lions fan early on (Detroit is the closest big TV market, not one of the 3 Cs).  I didn't have strong feelings about the rivalry, even though an uncle was a vocal OSU alum, although I liked OSU in undergrad.  I got into grad school at UM and OSU, and when I took the OSU offer, I started paying lots of attention to and rooting for OSU.  Now I live near Ann Arbor and have to bring my son up right, as he was born at Wexner (and loves the Brutus statue in the union).
