Honestly this wasn’t as surprising as Iowa. Two teams going in opposite directions, as we seemed to be playing worse each week, Purdue better. Random nationally televised night game against an up and coming good coach in Brohm who had his team prepared.
Ive been watching Ohio State football religiously for 21 years now, I can’t think of a season where we couldn’t run the football, at all. Also, we all know our LBs are highly recruited and talented athletes, they aren’t being coached properly.
Hopefully, like last season we will come off the loss playing better. As you mention, B1G championship and playoff spot are still available if we win out.
