Defensively NOT one of our better squads. Sold out to beat Clemson and had nothing left for yesterday. Outcoached on both sides of the ball. Just a bad day.
Agree, I'd argue we were just as out schemed on defense as offense. The offense looked out of sync all night and Sermon or Williams or Eddie George would not have made a difference. Fields was more hurt than he led on and played through some intense pain, true Buckeye warrior and legend. He needs another year but wont stay. We had moments where we strung some good plays but it started with first down on both sides of the ball. They were in short yardage situations most of if not all of the night while we were in long situations most of the night. The defense played bad and everyone expected them to play bad. This said, Bama was the better team, deserved to win and not many teams in history would have beaten them last night. I thought we had a chance but fell short.
Offensively we did not make much adjustments either IMO. NOT suggesting we get rid of anyone but overall the game plan was vanilla. Wonder if we spent so much time focusing on Clemson that it hurt us in this game.
Thanks for sharing. The idea is great but difficult for these young men to ignore their possible reward vs risk of injury. PSU under Jo Pa would have a great team every 4th or 5th year that was laden heavy with seniors. Bama is an NFL factory as well and there performance last was fueled by those who chose to return. Several members of our team this chose as well, the goal to beat Clemson and get to the NCG. Wondering, if so much focus was on Clemson that we were do for a letdown. GO BUCKS, still proud of what they accomplished.
I think we had got outplayed and out coached on both sides of the ball. Although the score did not show it I thought the defense did about what was expected, maybe could have had a few more stops it the tackling was better. The offense never got a rhythm and I feel many of the plays were predictable. Just a rough night on especially on the line of scrimmage. Wonder if all the focus on Clemson could have led to us "putting all our egss into one basket". Oh well, we will be back !
The results are on pony back to SEC HQ, left tomorrow.
I bet they go with a 2 RUSHMAN package all game long.
We have Garrett, he'll play like TWO tonight !!!!
I O, thanks for the support. Are you saying we have a chance ?
Salmon and Steak, my red #7 authentic jersey and Four Peaks Octoberfest. Thats all I will admit to. GO BUCKS
Me too, those with much more techno skills than me will need to attempt that one, if I tried I would not be done by Monday, trust me.
We have heard the words but now know the details, amazing story. JUST WIN
WOW, just WOW. Too many people are stuck in there own way. We ALL have excuses, successful people chose to ignore the excuses and work through them while many live the excuse and embrace it, but rarely achieve anything. Glad he is a part of this team,
First one to 48 wins, UNLESS, and I could see this happening a 3 OT thriller late into the night. Hilliard = Cie Grant to end the game.
No one has taken Bama into the 4th qrtr and go punch for punch with them successfully. I think if we play our best game we can accomplish this on Monday. We need Fields to take what the defense gives him and not force stuff especially if we are playing from behind. Come on BUCKEYES punch back HARDER !!!
Beat Bama by ball control. Stack the box hit with quick passes to loosen the box. There will be rushing yards to get but hard to obtain. Will definitely be a chess match back and forth. Thinking first one to 48 wins. GO BUCKS
Freaking AWESOME ! Ryan Day, on his way to legend status.
I would usually agree but with him and the injuries he must strike while the iron is hot. Maybe a game sealing Pick 6 !!!
He’ll be part of a group that has to to maneuver a stout offensive line that won the Joe Moore Award, tackle Najee Harris who’s viewed as the nation’s best running back, defend a wide receiver corps that includes Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith and corral quarterback Mac Jones who earned a Heisman finalist nod.
Think by the team is TIRED of this narrative, I know I am, keep poking the bull my friends
