The zone middle is still suspect. Fortunately the defensive line is so strong, most QB's wouldn't have time to wait for the plays to develop to get the passes off on 3rd and long. It's the pass first teams that could expose this (if there is a weakness, I'm not sure there is, but it's still unproven) on traditional non passing downs. We'll worry about those teams (Alabama, Clemson, LSU, and possibly OU) with patient QB's and strong O-lines that can exploit it at a later time, I just wanted to mention this now so I can look back on this comment to see if I was wrong and have to eat crow. I just don't want to see the same trouble Jim Heacock defense had over those years.

Comment 16 Sep 2019

A few things are obvious.

1.) Dak Prescot has a really strong arm, that flick of a 55 yard throw was amazing.

2.) Devin Smith ca n still zero in on a long ball

3.) Campbell is still untouchable in the open field because of his elite speed.

4.) Redskins fans are really taking notice of what a great guy Terry is. He might be the most likeable guy out of OSU since Archie, and there are so many to compare him to.

I can't complain about anything, he's still a first year starter. Those longs looks (holding the ball) will become long runs in important games. No need to risk it unless you need to. I suspect the coaches want him to continue to look downfield, and not run in games like this.

Comment 14 Sep 2019

I love it! The more the season wears on, the more the players love doing this. Still, sometimes they take it for granted - I don't like calling players out by name, so I won't, but you see him, getting his helmet just before the end of our school song, and he's from Columbus area too. Still, my favorite part after the game, is singing our school song with the band and the team.

Losing to Indiana in 1987 for the first time in 38 years, Earle Bruce infamously quipped “This is the darkest day in Ohio State football since I have been associated with it.”  Indiana won 31-10

Darkest Day II: A blowout loss to Indiana in 1988, and the first loss to Bloomington since 1908. John Cooper said "Bill (Mallory) was nice to us-he took the first team out." Indiana won 41-7

My facts stand on their own. You started an entire mini thread because you disagreed with my opinion. Please, let's not waste anymore time on this.

Ok CoachV, I'll give you an upvote to get you moving in the right direction. This is a funny, yet highly inapproriate thread, just roll with it. It's ok if you root for Indiana, and all of us know Penix is not pronounced like it sounds (11W had an article mentioning it a couple days ago), but comedy reigns in some threads, this is one of them. You should stay in 11W, most OSU fans root for Indiana and all other B1G teams except that one up north.

Comment 12 Sep 2019

I was going on memory I thought it was the same week, but the facts of the rankings remain the same. I just looked it up.

1 loss #10 OSU beats Nebraska, #3 1 loss LSU losestheir second game to Alabama 29-0. OSU stats 10, LSU drops only to 7.

next week

1 loss #10 OSU wins at #18 MSU, 2 loss LSU wins 24-17 against hapless Arkansas. OSU stays 10, LSU stays 7.

There is a bias, these are just 3 examples (including this weeks (cincy/tx games) where LSU was favored over OSU. facts...

Comment 12 Sep 2019

I gave an opinion, you ripped it as not being factual. I gave facts, and you still rip it.

Please stop Cincy, you are making yourself look silly. Go nit-pick on something else, you lost this fight. It happens to the best of us.

Comment 12 Sep 2019

Yes, 2015, you know, where OSU finished #4 in the country and still finishing behind a 2 loss Stanford team. Thanks for making my point.

Yes, not any loss, but a 29-0 shutout loss. Again, my point is made. So please stop your rant. It's over , take the L, walk away.

Comment 12 Sep 2019

I suppose I could give you examples to make it a fact, like in 2015, OSU defending national champ and #1 in the poll, beats Minnesota 28-14. Clemson beats FSU 23-13. Clemson the new #1. I could mention the bye week where OSU dropped, or other various games where they didn't rise despite a much more impressive victory like the road blowout over MSU in 2018, and LSU losing the 2nd game that year in the same week (29-0 to Alabama), but still staying ahead of 1 loss #10 OSU who stayed put in the polls, but I digress, I'll hold back on facts, because this is an opinion based forum. Oh wait, those were facts! Sorry about messing up your opinion....

Comment 12 Sep 2019

Of course I am not passing it off as fact (if the roles were reversed). It's my opinion, as most other comments are here too. If we only posted facts, we wouldn't have much to talk about, and this site would not really be needed, we would just need to go to and

I hate when you get on a roll and get contradictory with people. Take a deep breath and relax sometime please.
