I think part of the problem is when the games get tough and the other team is playing physical defense, it seems everyone on our team other than Kaleb and Andre over the past 6 games essentially freeze up. They shrink from the pressure instead of being aggressive so it basically puts too much on Kaleb. Carton has shown in some games his ability to score against pressure but then he has turnover problems and loses confidence sometimes. They are just going to have to keep working on perfecting their offensive sets and limiting turnovers. I'm not sure what else can be done offensively our 3 point shooting is starting to balance back out over the last two games which is good to see. The defense has been poor during this stretch and that is the biggest thing we can change. Getting back to how we were playing defense earlier in the season.
Any good grad transfers we might go after for next year? Especially a center and a wing player. Hopefully Justice Sueing is going to be really good for us next year.
Good to be winning again. Hopefully Muhammad and Washington can learn from this and come back better to help the team.
1. Clemson(13-0): OSU will deserve the 1 seed but Clemson will get it again on reputation.
2. Ohio State(13-0): Passing game was already very good this year and will take a step forward next year. Will be interesting to see how the defense plays next year and who steps up in the backfield to replace Dobbins.
3. Alabama(12-1): Mac Jones looked like he can be a pretty good QB especially with the weapons Alabama has, although they are losing Jeudy and Ruggs. I expect Alabama’s defense to have a bounce back year and be very good again.
4. Oklahoma(12-1): This spot is kind of a toss up. OU’s recent performances in the CFP won’t help but I don’t see anyone taking the big 12 from them, especially with Rhule leaving to the NFL. Spencer Rattler will be a really good QB next year. Honestly I just don’t see another 1 loss team out there to take their place.
Other possibilities for 4
LSU, Penn State(if they only lose to us and win the rest of their games), Oregon(Also if they only lose to us and win the rest of their games en route to a pac 12 title), Georgia( Jamie Newman is a talented QB but I don’t trust their coaches to fully unleash their offense), Florida( Had a very good year this past season and have a decent QB),
Georgia is obviously a good team no one reasonable would dispute that. However, their offense has been consistently mediocre for a while now. Newman is a good QB but they are losing a lot of guys on the O-line, WR and D'andre Swift off an already average offense. Yes they have great recruits behind them but they still always underperform.
What a bad turnover
This isn’t the same team from earlier in the season. Truly shocking regression.
I try not to be really negative but this is literally the same implosion as last year. The only difference is this year we have some quality wins already but damn how do you go from #2 overall to arguably one of the worst teams in the big ten currently.
Nice block from Gaffney there but Muhammad's shots look really bad right now
What happened to our offense good lord this is ugly
I don't think he is yet but seems like most Miami fans think he will transfer. He was a big time prospect a couple years ago that OSU was recruiting for some time. He hasn't done much at Miami but their program is a complete wreck right now especially on offense.
Kind of surprising it got to this. Good luck to him. We probably need to try and get a corner in the transfer portal now.
Lol what? We took one of the best QB prospects ever from them in Justin Fields so they took Mathis from us who didn’t want to compete with fields. He even said it in an interview. Don’t think we really cared that much.
Ya I don't really agree with competing for second and I don't think BC is a good job. If FSU hires a somewhat competent coach BC will never finish above them most likely. Lousville has Lamar Jackson recently and their new coaching staff orchestrated a huge turn around. Virginia and Va Tech are doing decently. I understand the ACC is not a good conference at all right now outside of Clemson but BC has almost never been good and legitimately competitive in football for a while other than with Matt Ryan maybe.
Watts is 100% committed and signing with OSU on Wednesday according to Birm so that’s great news. Looks like we are most concerned about Ransom now.
It will be fine man it’s not a big deal a lot of guys we have on the team now have done something similar near the end of their recruitments. It would be unlikely that we are going to lose an elite DB who’s been comittted for a long time to Utah.
Ban this dumbass troll.
If it’s grade 1 he should be almost 100%. If it’s a grade 2 it will still hurt some and he might need a minor procedure done in the offseason if there is a small tear of some ligament. Either way though i think he should be fine for the playoff games.
I don’t want to get into a religious debate, but not everyone cares about it. Vimahi might have been raised with it, but if he personally cares a lot more about his football career than that’s all the reason needed.
Put on my OSU sweatshirt and wore my jersey over it, and stood the whole second half right in front of the tv basically.
Lol you really are going to put down Utah as not being physical and support OU? They literally cannot play defense at all. The main reason Utah is even in the playoff conversation is how physical and tough their team is overall, which helps them have a great defense. Maybe you should actually learn about the teams.
Utah is a much more physical team than OU. Might not be better, but definitely more physical.
OSU wins 38-7 in terrible weather conditions and now playing in a dome where we can fully use our speed advantage the game is gonna be closer? Maybe I’m just being overconfident but I don’t see it happening. I think it will be like 49-13.
UNC is obviously not what they usually are but to go to the Dean Dome and win by 25 is incredibly impressive. This team looks like it could be special.
IS IT CRAZY TO THINK JK RETURNS FOR HIS 4TH/SENIOR YEAR?
