I don't think any intelligent observer thinks that there is a 31-0 gulf between OSU's program and Clemson's.  On the contrary, Urb is recruiting at a higher level than Dabo. So nobody takes the final score as meaning OSU is not a serious NC contender.  It's just one game.

The conclusion I reach is that there is a failure of game planning an opponent's defense since Herman left.  Meyer needs to clean house, if he can find another Herman out there.  Meyer needs to confront his offensive "gurus" and if he doesn't get answers and improvements, then he needs a few new coaches.

Wizard, I would like more specifics, please.  Specific as to players and some examples of what you're seeing with individual plays.  Also, I would like to know your reference points:  are you looking at your DVR and if so, are you going frame by frame?  And can you see the QB AND the receivers in the same screen shot?

They put the WRs on the line because it is quicker to get to the DBs to block them.  But I agree that it is a giveaway that a run play is coming since the inside receiver is covered and therefore ineligible. 

I guess the thinking is that the defense doesn't have the visual perspective to know that the inside receiver is on the line so it will not be a "tell".  BUT, how difficult would it be for a coach on the sideline to notice it and yell to his players "Run, Run, Run" or another signal.  If they are expecting the coach's signal, it would be a huge advantage.  The modest advantage of having your inside receiver getting to the DB's quicker to block is totally trumped by this "tell".

Worst call against OSU:   I think it was around 1994 at home against Illinois... they blocked a FG in the 4th quarter and started running with it to the endzone... as the Illinois player was falling he lateralled it... his knees were clearly on the ground before he tossed it and he lateralled it forward almost five yards... two egregious misses by a number of referees...  The seven points that they didn't deserve wound up costing OSU the game.
