I'm feeling like this game against Wiscy will be closer than any game we've played yet, maybe on the Penn State level. Then again, I thought the Michigan game would be like that too. These Buckeyes are great, but I think Wisconsin has fight and will play their hearts out. They'll look pretty good for a bit before losing 49-21.

It was teased last year and they ran a shotgun two-back formation a couple times early in the season, but ultimately it faded away, probably for those alternatives you mentioned.

Picked up a bottle of 1794 for my wife (I'm a smoker not a drinker) on your recommendation and she loved it. Might have become a new Game tradition! This analysis of the difference between Michigan and Ohio State is the best I've seen yet. Thanks as always, Ramzy.

He had a ridiculous string of runs without any lost yardage and it wasn't just good blocking - he was amazing at getting back to the line when a play didn't work and always got a few extra yards after contact. I see JK doing that more than ever before and it makes all the difference.

That was one of the best (most emphatic, important, explosive) runs I've ever seen. Reminded me of the run Hyde had against Iowa where he got spun backwards before regaining his feet and diving into the end zone on the edge. Or when Elliott burst through a hole and off a couple defenders while leaping into the end zone against Oregon.

They would not be denied. These are my favorite plays. Will and skill overcoming everything.

The weather was a big factor, and the 3 fumbles lost made the game plan more conservative. I really don't think this was the type of tightening up we saw under Meyer. Meyer went to QB runs at the absence of all else. JK Dobbins was the lead carrier by a mile and was never abandoned even when the game was slipping away. And when it counted, Day called for a deep throw down the sideline to give a chance for Olave to make the play, and he did.

There's some scary reminiscence, but I think it is substantively different.

You know, maybe they watched Penn State, and realized refs will never throw a flag for holding on Young. Maybe they watched Penn State, and realized even with that, you can't single-team Chase Young.

Maybe they'll hold the hell out of him every single play with 2 linemen plus a chip from RB/TE.

Maybe they'll really 100% dedicate to stopping Chase Young, and maybe they'll do it.

That's fine, BB Landers, Jashon Cornell, Zach Harrison, Davon Hamilton, Tyreke Smith, Tyler Friday, Tommy Togiai are all waiting for single-man blocks to get their posterization over a maize and blue QB.

The Larry Johnson dojo is not a one-man operation.

Comment 25 Nov 2019

I agree with this so much. Imagine if Day didn't want to get too conservative, so he's trying to call screens and slants and quick outs, and Penn State is trying to jump those routes to get back in the game... this could have VERY easily turned into another one of those games, where the fans are crying "WHY DIDN'T YOU GIVE IT TO DOBBINS" a la Hyde, Zeke, Samuel, etc...

In my viewing, the ONLY problems were the fumbles. And it was a great game, great win.

It's not college feelingsball, it's college football.

So remember! This ain't about feelings! It's about... feet!

This is the most fun season I've ever watched (since 2008). This team is so special. The turnaround on the defense alone, with almost all the same players, is unbelievable. I'm just starting to come around over the last two weeks to believing this defense is really elite. There's been a tinge of fear and doubt that was planted over the last two seasons, and it's really fun having the Buckeyes own that doubt and crush it every chance they get.

It's good to remember it's not like playing NCAA 14, where all you have to do is go and update your depth chart based on OVR ratings, and boom you're done. Practice reps, leadership, mental errors, body language, team chemistry - all these things do matter and aren't as easy to see for us.
