Buckeyes struggle week in and week out.

 I don't like the way the season is going as far as the play we are seeing. But, I really think the Buckeyes have set the bar really high in the eyes of the fans. We see Ohio State getting the number two team in the nation in recruiting. Winning a Natty after two years under Urban. Drawing in numerous 4^ and some 5* players. And now this year at the moment are 8-1. And I have to say, your comment is one we all say watching the games. In reality, we expect a blowout almost every game. 56-7, or 49-10, ect., ect. So if OSU doesn't go undefeated, and we don't blowout other teams, we see it as a struggle. Maybe we should realize that bar is awfully high and hard to reach all the time. If they won every game this year by one point each, I can't say they struggled. I would say it's been a good season.

 GO BUCKS!!

 Question.....seems a lot of times the safeties and CB's are just trying to keep up with the oppositions WR's. They don't look back for the ball seems most of the time. The going count on the QB is 3 to 31/2 seconds to release the ball. if he gets more time than that he has a brilliant OL. So shouldn't the CB's covering, do the count after the snap and turn to see where the ball is after 3 seconds?  Then they could play the ball as the receiver. And less pass interference calls by looking back. Just wondering?

 since the QB was now an integral part of the running game, the defense had to account for him, 

Joe Davis and Brady Quinn stated that this is a new Ohio State offense, and the fans have to get used to it. It is no longer a run oriented offense but a pass offense. Something Ohio State hasn't had for years. Sometimes I think Haskins reminds me of Christian Hackenberg.  Penn State boasted one of the countries best pocket passer QB's in Hackenberg. But, the offense for Penn State just couldn't beat the Buckeyes. The NFL teams are licking their chops waiting on Haskins. College football has a big success ratio with a RPO QB. With "spread offenses" that is just what college football has become.

 I remember watching that game and seen him go down on his knees. I thought uh-oh, what's happening with him? The play-by-play announcer said Urban was running down the sideline and collided with another person. So they explained away him going down by that. If he did collide, that could have jarred the cyst and caused sever pain. Prayers for Urban in that he can live with it, and not suffer that much.

Frost more than made a name for himself while at Central Florida...... Scott Frost for Josh Heupel at UCF.

 The AAC is NOT the Big Ten. Out of 12 teams only 5 have a winning record in that conference so far this year. And with a new coach UCF is 7-0. So it wasn't so much Frost  as it was the strength of the conference. In the Big Ten, currently 8 out of 14 teams have a winning record. Sure, all that can change. Frost can come up with a recruiting tactic that might draw in top recruits. But, for now, not so.  Coach Osborn was able to do it back in the day. I would find out what he did if I was Frost. For now, the Buckeyes just need to play lights out, and things will take care of themselves regardless of who we are playing.

 Coach Meyer keeps saying they put the best 5 players on the O-line. Evidently they feel like the ones that are there now are the best 5. He also said that Josh is coming along real nice. Now we shall see with Taylor healthy where the O-line ends up. The one thing the coaches caution on is making too many changes this late in the season. They have stated though that the run game, and red zone,  has got to get better.

 this team has been pushed around all year by less talented teams.

 I can't say they have been pushed around all year. Let's look at the scores so far.  Ohio State 77 Oreg. St. 31, Because Ohio State led 42 to 14 first half the second half was mostly 2nd string. OSU  52 Rutgers 3.  Same thing. OSU 40 TCU 28. First half down by 1, second half we pulled away.  This was marked as the game to determine. OSU 49 Tulane 6 Same as first game. OSU 27 Penn St. 26. First real road test against a predetermined top 25 team. As of now 5-0 and with a couple botched defensive plays  allowing large gains, looking good. OSU 49 Ind. 26. Indy has always played us hard but we always seemed to prevail. OSU 30 Minn. 14.  Wasn't a pretty game. Things started to show as some breakdowns and the loss of Bosa has been showing. 14-17 OSU at the half but we did shut them down second half. Then the game that I and many other 11 Warrior's stated as the game to be careful of, Purdue. Not just defense, but fourth quarter before OSU scored a touchdown. Penalties galore, you name it. We were not focused.

 So to say we have been pushed around all year, no. Against Purdue, yes. Coaches have their work cut out.

 GO BUCKS!!

 The one store Bronner's is. We went there in July and the Christmas music is piped through the whole store all day long. Everyday all year long. I told my wife, how could you stand it.

We have such high expectations this year as in past years. So what has happened in the past? We lose one or two games, and most were afraid that is going to happen again. Look at Alabama. The last time they went undefeated in a season was in 2009.  And in 1992 before that. So it is a given that an undefeated season is a rarity. In Ohio States case. The last undefeated season was in 2012 and in 2002 before that. You have to go all the way back to 1968 before that. (1973 they had a tie). So yes, we can wring our hands and bite our lips, looking into the future. But, we have lost at least one game before, as have about every team in Power 5 football. I just hope Purdue, and Ohio State,  wins out. Lets get our problems worked out and go at it.

It all depends on how Purdue finishes the season. They started 0-3, since then they are 4-0 and knocked off the number 2 team in the nation. They are tied for second place in the West division. One game behind Northwestern in the win column. Now a lot of IF'S. IF they finish up with no defeats, They will jump ahead of Iowa and Wisky. And IF Northwestern loses two more games, they would end up playing for the Big Ten Championship. That would put them in the top 25, and may not look that bad on Ohio States resume. I know, I know, a lot of IF'S, but I am just saying it is possible. Oh, and IF Ohio State wins out.

I have posted this before and now need to post it more than ever.

 OSU is doing good so far,7-1,so that only leaves speculation of gloom and doom. We have such high expectations this year as in past years. So what has happened in the past? We lose one or two games, and most were afraid that is going to happen again. Look at Alabama. The last time they went undefeated in a season was in 2009.  And in 1992 before that.

(1973 they had a tie). So yes, we can wring our hands and bite our lips, looking into the future. But, in the end, our record against  who we have played and won against, depending on we don't lose any more games, makes us a playoff contender. Chin up.

 After numerous years of cardiac arrest Tressel ball, we should be able to handle any frustrations with the coaches and team. All turned out well, didn't it. I've posted before. An undefeated season is a rarity among power 5 FBS teams. So it's a roller coaster ride folks. Just hold on and  enjoy the ride, for the season will be over with too soon. And we will be wishing for Ohio State football.

 GO BUCKS!!
