You can call ii what you want but it's a torn ACL. He can not be close to 100% 6 days after surgery. Lateral stability is the weakness.  He will not play the whole game.  I doubt he can be effective. Maybe it's some moral support he is there but this is Haskins game to win.  Count on that for sure.

The coverage issues are due to Urbans flawed strategy. It'is not a normal coverage scheme and we are paying the price for the extra risk in the plan. He takes risk to try to pin the opponent deep. That is the main goal that he beats in the team. But that not the normal approach.  The norm is to send a few gunners down and have other pull up and play contain.  If you look st the replays you will see how the team overran the plays. It's all goes back to a flawed risky plan.

The wrong question is asked continually by the media. It's not just the deep ball it's the touch pass. This includes any pass with air : deep, bac shoulder, swing, etc. the issue with JT is he throws a shallow ball more on a line instead of throwing more arc on it. When you throw like JT you give your receiver less chance to adjust and you have to throw it later than when you put more air. Thus the results we see: misses, more time needed in pocket. He has improved some but lacking the touch pass where he can drop it in is a rare occurrence.  Coach Day brought it up during the spring but the media doesn't get it.

Not much analysis  here  repeating  the obvious you heard in the press conference 

Need to ask Kevin or urban about the progress he sees on JT throwing the touch balls. This is the key. He has been a little better but not great.  

Also what about penalties?  No media asks the hard questions. I don't understand the media questions. I don't think many really understand football. Like the bozo whi told urban you could run the ball everytime and dominate. 

Would OSU be better to mix more zone with this set of DBs??

will OSU see more zone coverage that clearly confused JT??

JT can't hit downfield passes because he throws no touch fast balls after the WR maes a break. To connect with a line drive pass give the WR no ability to adjust. If he threw touch passes to a spot he would throw earlier and give the WR a chance to run under. Our WR are good if they had a chance perform. By throwing line drives for longer passes makes JT wait longer and must be perfect to connect.

JT can not throw with touch. Weather is the deep pass or a back shoulder or a wheel route. If you throw to a spot you can release sooner. He waits and decides if the receiver is open then fires a fast ball. This method does not work for any pass longer than 10 yard or is at least less likely to be accurate. 

Why doesn't any reporter ask about this???? They stated this was a point of emphasis for Coach day when he started. No results. What's going on ??

Purdue is underdog by 10 points. That is a close game.  Not so unthinkable they could win. 

The OSU passing issue is being missed.  JT throws only line drive fast balls. Hitting downfield pass like that is much harder. Until he learns to throw a ball where a receiver can adjust and run under we will not have a downfield passing game. He does not  throw back shoulder or any touch passes. It's the biggest issue over time and open recievers.

You know Luke is fuming at the month to get M on week 2. That will harder than FL. Our most recent loss to M is with Luke coaching. It was a close game.  I think Luke will have Cincinnati sky high and take harbaugh.  Rooting for Luke like its a early OSU Tsun game!! It will be on the day but before Oklahoma game I'm sure columbus will be watching.

Missed point that Tate is going to be a RS freshman next year. There is more of a scenario to use 2 QBs next year especially with Tate. Meyer and Wilson have use 2 before. All 3 can definitely fit in next year. Borrows is not going to be the starter next year. Just doesn't fit the system. Haskins / Martel in a duel starting role next year with Borrows as the steady backup. There is the option you couldn't see.

Offensive COORDINATION. That the issue was not discussed here. Timing where the break and throw are together. They talked about separation. You don't look for separation on timing plays. Plays that make the defense read one play or area and then throw to another.  You knew jet sweep a Mike away. 2nd and 1 and we run JT to get the first but it's the perfect passing situation.  It was all offensive coaching.

There are guidelines for how many at each position group. The was a nice table of the number from each group and the current recruitment on the ozone recently.  The table had -/+ for most needed positions. There are basically the 9 poison groups.  It's is not Hap hazzard and quite the science. But the whole real picture is only known by the coaches.
