Ain’t gettin any help today. Lewerke stinkin it up every time I look
Going back to the 2nd half of the Indiana game the Buckeye d backs started keeping plays in front of them. This led to more pass breakups and a couple picks. Yeah they pass for 270 yards but only 1 or 2 td’s. OSU punts once this game. Harrison deflects 2 passes and tips one to himself. 45-17
Looking back at scores there is a positive trend for the scoring defense. Throwing out a couple blowouts osu has given up 31, 28, 26, 26, and 14. So the scores are headed the right direction. Just need to be stout on 3rd down defense and get the d off the field. More possessions for Haskins = more points. Period.
My pessimistic prediction, Bucks are 7-0. They come out like always , no surprises. So Purdue starts crazy fast. Bucks adjust and respond late after frustrating first half. Bucks win late per usual. Drop to third in polls. This is not what I want. But it happens. Go to 8-0.
My optimistic prediction: Bucks d line shift(implemented last week) creates line domination. Purdue passes for 270. But 1 td. Bucks put up 499 yards and win 27-10.
Yeah I guess Moore is for real. But where is Sheffield’s name in this discussion. Dude is our fastest and most experienced and turned in a beautiful pick last week. He get injured?
Without a dominant o line it’s almost pointless to rearrange the proverbial deck chairs in the backfield. No?
Hopefully we get Harrison playing at full speed to help in coverage. Also, Sheffield will draw Moore in coverage. Let’s see how that goes.
i would really like to send blitzes similar to what psu did. Rattle that qb.
Too much Kenny G
Yep. It’s amazing that they still sell out on the run part part of rpo. We may never have such a top to bottom level of experience at wr. Plus Dobbins has amassed a pass catching highlight reel this season. So wheel routes are there to.
Good points. Adding to that even talented teams have struggled in the 4th quarter versus a bigger deeper Buckeye team. If Purdue can figure out how to hang with and outscore Dwayne Haskins for 60 minutes, more power to them. But I don’t see it. Every conference win is tough.
Hahaha just a theory.
Yes osu Can win a natty with a passing offense. Why? Because we have more experienced receivers than anyone has corners to cover. And that includes Bama.
Nobody has built a defense to cover (yes I’m using the old name) Zone Six.
Exactly. Opponents keep selling out to stop the run as if JT was still here. So it’s possible that the rpo freezes defenders and open lanes for Dwayne’s 72% passing game.
Going out on a limb here, but my money goes with Ryan Day over Random Guy.
Right. His passing is so effective that it has slightly raised osu’s Average yards per play. I posted earlier that this year’s yards per pass attempt is 9.6. Last year’s better rush stat only 5.6 per attempt. We might argue for abandoning all but short yardage situation runs. And, yes I realize that the occasional run is necessary to keep d honest. But I don’t think our B1G opponents are ready this year to stop a 90% pass offense. Maybe no one is.
This season yards per pass attempt (includes incompletions) is 9.6. Last year’s better rushing stat was a mere 5.6 yards per attempt. RPO’s are a big part of the passing game, which is superior to our best rushing averages. I don’t know why people are so bully for the rush game. It just doesn’t matter how we get yardage for the majority of the game. Just need better run schemes for Red Zone runs and 4th and 1. imho.
Every pro qb who is s pocket passer is worse with pressure.
Can def wrap up on tackles
Maybe fans here love football because people live through their heroes. So winning games and trophies is equal to getting signing bonuses. It’s why they continue to follow players through the NFL and into the hall of fame. You stated many facts but maybe missed the obvious one?
I don’t know if I coincidentally think like Ramzy or if reading The Situational makes me think like him. Always amazing.
I honestly worry about defense every game. But at least as an underdog Urb and co would be creative in game planning not Bama. That said, let’s see what Bama looks like against a top 10 team.
So he probably knows exactly which teams want him. Bye bye. He and Dwayne can go into business together next year.
The d line took a hit, for sure. But the d line will not be a weakness. It will be a strength.
Good points Chuck.
Yes some here are disappointed, and they are free to own that opinion. But the Bosa family is a uniquely pro football family. They have vetted info coming from Joey’s agent as well as his uncles. And... the NCAA is the de facto farm system for the NFL. So we can be pissed about this or be glad about the fact that our team churns our first round talent year after year.
For those of you wondering where Nick goes in the draft, I guarantee you he has extremely vetted info coming from Joeys agent as well as his uncles.
Im not happy about him leaving at all but rest assured he’s doing it with irrefutable data. This is what happens when you follow an elite program. S#*t!
