that's fair, but my point isn't that weber can't make those kind of plays (because, as you pointed out, he totally can), but more that a guy like dobbins probably can as well. so while i have zero problem with a pair and a spare, my line of thought is more "what exactly does weber bring to the table that the other guys can't do?"
PERHAPS but that was really a bit of an inside joke for the rest of the staff
while i totally understand and accept that saying the sooners could drop 41 on ohio state at home is a stretch for most, i'd like to gently also point out that pass defense, not rush defense, was the real strength of the OSU d last year. three teams rushed for over 200 yards on the buckeyes, and the sooners came close to making it four. what's really remarkable about the defense last season is that only two teams managed to pass for over 250 yards, and one of those teams won the national championship.
lagow and indiana passed for 420 yards last week. the only other time an urban meyer ohio state team has given up over 400 yards of passing was at michigan in 2013. so my basic premise is this: mayfield is maybe the best QB in the country. ohio state doesn't have great corners. if you believe baker hitting on three passing TDs is possible in the 1st half (as i do), 41 points is definitely within the realm of possibility.
i would LOVE to be wrong and eat an entire buffet of crow. but this game worries me.
