Day was clearly not happy about too many missed tackles at last nites press conference. When he watches the the tape it will show poor play (again) by Borland. The one Sparty scoring drive - 2 pitiful plays by Borland- missing the Rb in the hole and letting the TE get behind him. He also missed tackles on 2 or 3 other plays on the Rb and Lewerke getting the edge.

He is clearly the poorest MLB to play since Storm Klein. 

Coaches make errors too with personnel so saying they are always right is simply wrong. 

I cannot imagine this coaching playing Borland in a playoff game against Bama or Oklahoma or any team with athletes.

Now the Wisconsin hype begins. Ridiculous. Decent team with 1 great RB and suspect speed everywhere else.

Alabama and Clemson would blow them out. The talent at OSU is far superior and there is zero excuse not to dominate them.

The only weakness this OSU team has  is poor pursuing speed at LB to make plays on the outside.

NFL caliber DLine and Secondary, NFL WRs Rb and QB. There are at least 10-12 legit NFL starters on this roster Wisky has maybe 3.

Maybe against Army where the Rbs never run outside. He cant even get to the edge on a running play. Its pathetic.

Can they just stop playing Borland? He really has no business playing over Browning at this point. Lost the TE for a TD and is slower than the IU OLinemen. While Werner and Arnette ( the other weak spots from last year) have improved, Borland is still lousy. Not trying to be mean but thats the truth.

McCall is another player that just offers little. He can never break a tackle and has never shown the big play potential alot says he has.

Alabama and Clemson would crush Cinci like 49-10.  OSU needs to come out play well and show their superior talent. If this defense lets Cinci move the ball then they are in trouble again just like last years disaster.

Comment 04 Sep 2019

I dont think I have ever seen a fan base that gets so irate when a non biased football analyst criticizes Ohio State's play. Its like they just cant bear to hear the truth for some reason. Last years defense was historically horrible yet many on these boards could not accept it. When OSU was getting pounded by the SEC and USC the fan base refused to acknowledge it. When the media criticized JT for his awful ability to throw the football in big games the fan base acted like they were blind.

Klatt expresses concerns that are legit- the LB play is still weak- teams will exploit them with the TEs and Rbs in coverage. The Oline is average as is the RB play. There is no Haskins or big play WRs this year so there is far less margin for error. Fans better be ready for it. There could easily be 2-3 losses this year if reality is accepted.

Comment 01 Sep 2019

If they are smart Cinci will attack the OSU defense: 1-screen passes to negate Young and pass rush that killed FAU.

2- isolate RB in the passing game to make the slower OSU LBs cover them

3- QB rollouts and shorter seam routes to their TEs.

Cinci can hang in this game but Fields will be able to run and make plays . 34-24 OSU.

Comment 31 Aug 2019

Seriously? Werner ran in and the QB ran right by him for a 1st down. He lost containment on at least 3 or 4 other plays. Has he ever tackled a RB or got off a block to make a play?

The only thing he can do is cover a TE in coverage.

Comment 24 Aug 2019

Seeing alot of talk about Meyer wearing a Gator shirt. Kind of odd.

But he was invited by the Gators/SEC and fans dont realize he is really still close to Dan Mullen.

Lots of ex Gators- Tebow, Emmett Smith, Harvin, Dunlap- trying to get the university to induct him into the ring of honor.

Its surprising how many UF/OSU fans dislike a coach who has never had his university put on probation or disgraced himself by punching an opposing player.

Comment 24 Aug 2019

Only weakness is backup QB? You must have not watched the LB play last year. It was the worst in 30 years.

Only Harrison was adequate and even he lacks speed that other elite LBs have. Changing coaches is not going to improve how slow a player is or how weak a LB is at fending off blocks.

The talent at LB is below average, There are supposedly players that have talent but they rotted on the bench last while the others played miserable.

Until we see players play significantly better the LB is by far the weakness on the roster.

Comment 14 Aug 2019

You just have to laugh at the lip service the coaches give to the media and fans about a position group. The bottom line is the LBs played horrible last year. Having the 71 st rated defense was an embarrassment. The LBs couldn't pursue, couldnt shed blocks, couldnt cover and blaming the coaches was a scapegoat for the reality of these guys are simply not good players. 

At Ohio State you have to have NFL caliber LBs like Shazier, McMillan, Lee, Rolle. None of these LBs on the roster that we have seen on the field will sniff the NFL.  How many of these guys would play at Alabama or Clemson or Georgia right now? None. Certainly not Borland who is slower than Storm Klein or Werner. 

Fans thinking these guys are going to be good are not watching reality. Recruiting misses happen and the weak LB group is more than obvious thats what happened.
