Nicknames: A) "The Fridge" because I wanna see him bowl over TTUN defenders like pins in a 300 game, when he carries it in from the 2-yd line for the score. B) THE BIG HURT ... 'cuz that's how you feel when you regain consciousness after Jones hits you on a jet sweep. C) "Tiny," 'cuz, you know .... BUCKEYES 31-13 this weekend. GO BUCKS!

You say, "The truth is that there's no reason for the Ohio States of the world to be playing the Florida Atlantics of that same world." That is EXACTLY what Kirk Herbstreit inferred, on air, minutes before the Michigan-Appalachian State game in 2007: "Chad Henne, he could set a record today unless they take him out of the game. …  it starts today against poor ole Appalachian State."

Spring Game giants: Taurian Washington, Bam Childress, Torrance Gibson. Three SPring game MVPs that totaled 1 career TD in uniform -- Washington caught an Antonio Henton (!!!) pass for a TD in his first game as a freshman vs. Youngstown State, and never saw the end zone again. Childress, 0 touchdowns in four years; Gibson, I don't think ever took the field for the Buckeyes. Spring Games are SO deceptive. They are basically opportunities for under-depth chart players to make a statement, to show what they've got ... NOT for the "cream of the crop" to dominate.

IU got caught in a blitz. They were sending seven and had DBs and an LB on islands.. The DB and S bit on two OSU receives on the left, who cut across the formation. Perfect play to run when IU is in blitz mode.

Hey Kentucky RB -- Mike Weber was part of the OSU Class of 2015, a year ahead of you. J.K. Dobbins was part of the Class of 2017, a year behind you. Even if OSU had selected you over Antonio Williams, you'd STILL be riding the pine in Columbus. No way in hell you beat out either Weber or Dobbins. And, just like Williams, you'd have transferred out when you saw Snead and Teague in the rearview mirror. Put it this way -- UK is perfect for you, because you get four years to play, instead of the two years you'd be left with after riding OSU pine and sitting a year to transfer. Sometimes, life works out like that,. Be happy; you were NEVER meant to be a Buckeye. Having said that -- good luck, go beat Bama, Jogia and LSU.

How many passes did Haskins and the OSU offense hit downfield, farther than 15 yards Saturday? One, maybe? Two, possibly? Unless we see a return to a deep-threat -- or at least a 15-20-yard downfield attack -- teams are going to pack the box and send the troops with ears pinned back, to stop the run and get Haskins off-guard (or at least, throwing off his back foot, which he did all night Saturday).

Did Coach Meyer say, "No wide receiver depth?" Let's see ... Hill, 27 catches; Campbell, 26; Mack, 18; Dixon, 10; McLaurin, 9; and Ben Vic, 7. The guy who had THEE catch that brought OSU back into the game, has one more catch than former walk-on C.J. Saunders, with 6. That's an X-Y-Z two-deep-plus-one.
Dixon, Mack, McLaurin, Campbell, all threw key development blocks on the TD catches by Ben Vic, K.J. Hill and the 35-yard Dobbins screen. These guys take out DBs with regularity; there were PSU DBs falling EVERYWHERE Saturday.

This could be Victor's breakout year; good luck the rest of the way! NEXT YEAR: it'll be him with his length, K.J. Hill with his speed, and Austin Mack with his grit and toughness. Their backups will be "next men up" Chris Olave, Jaylen Harris and Jaelen Gill, with incoming Class of 2019 frosh Garrett WIlson from Lake Travis TX -- where OSU RS QB Matt Baldwin is from. I feel a "hometown boy-to-hometown boy connection" in the Buckeyes' future.
GO BUCKS!!!!

Study history, and you 'll know why. After the 2013 season, OSU lost 3 of 4 DBs: CJ Barnett and Chris Bryant graduated, and Brad Roby left early. (CB Doran Grant was the lone returnee). Grant graduated after 2014, when OSU returned Apple, Ty Powell and Vonn Bell for 2015. But after 2015, OSU lost 3 of 4 starting DBs, Apple, Powell and Bell. After 2016, again OSU lost 3 of 4 starting DBs, in Conley, Lattimore and Hooker; Lattimore and Hooker both had started just one season. After 2017, OSU lost 2 of its 4 starting DBs, Denzel Ward and Damon Webb. That low recidivism leads to players having to play before they are typically ready, like Okudah and Pryor pressed into service last year as true freshmen when obviously they weren't ready.
Put it this way: If OSU DBs stayed through to their fifth-year, redshirt-senior status, Saturday's starters would have been -- Cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Marshon Lattimore, with safeties Malik Hooker and Jordan Fuller.

Funny, Penn State talking 'bout OSU folding, when they are 2-7 vs. top 10 teams ... when Appy State took them to OT ... when they led Illinois 28-24 going to the fourth quarter. But when Victor 9 scored, the ENTIRE stadium collectively sat down and said, "Oh no! Not AGAIN!" LOL .... Fourth-and-five, and with the OSU secondary w/out starters Pryor and Arnette, they decide to ... uhhmmmm, run a guy who was averaging 2.7 ypc, with 43 yards rushing for the whole night? He had trouble getting 3 yards, and you expected five???

Game Balls to:

1. Ben Victor. Guy caught a poorly thrown ball (too high, and WAY behind him) and turned it into a first down, and then a scramble for yardage, then SIX. That play almost single-handedly drained ALL the air out of that stadium; started PSU fans thinking, "Oh no, not again ...."


2. Tuf Borland. Urban Meyer once said, "The most important time of a game are the last five minutes of the first half, and the first five minutes of the second." That's when OSU scored their first two come-from-behind TDs, and it came off Borland's stop-and-strip of that PSU RB. He was the only LB who showed up tonight, apparently. 

3. J.K. Dobbins. Guy hit some tough yards tonight but his biggest plays came as a receiver, when he turned in two decisive plays; waiting for his WRs downfield to throw blocks on a Barrett-like pass in the flats for a TD, and then on the 40-yard reception on another Barrett-like pass in the flats on the final drive.

4. Chase Young. Beast mode tonight. All the comment in this thread point out his rise; imagine what he could be doing with Bosa on the other side....

5. KJ Hill. Made some excellent catch-and-runs tonight. He was so patient, waiting for his fellow WRs to knock the crap out of the PSU DBs on that TD run. Hey recruits: When you come to OSU to play WR, you also come to HIT .

6. Drue Chrisman. When the O was struggling, and when the D was having problems, Chrisman was kicking the cover off the ball.
