Fleming is also a freak and is technically skilled enough to play off the bat at X, Z, or H at Ohio State off the bat. If Paris had more refined technique I think you'd see him higher on a lot of lists.

The obsession with "proving" bias is silly and makes our fanbase look unhinged. Humans of all walks of life are inherently biased. There's no need to prove anything. Ohio State benefits from national perception as much as it is to their detriment. The sooner you get over it, the better.

I think you have to have serious consideration as to who you're taking off the field to put that player on the field. Does it make the team worse if you take that guy off the field to get snaps for a younger player with less experience? 

My candidates:

  • Browning, obviously. He should get every single snap from Tuf. 
  • Ruckert. I think he should get a bigger slice of the TE snaps. Farrell's blocking hasn't been great until the last game. 
  • Olave. I think he should always be on the field when the game is still in the balance, as he's by far the best WR on the team at the moment. 
  • Brendon White: I think teams (Penn State, Maryland, Michigan) are going to try to abuse our base defense.
    • Nebraska and MSU showed some ways you can take advantage of the seams when we're in base cover 3. 
    • I think you could see White on the field for Werner against Northwestern and see him on the field for Wade against Wisconsin to get him more ready to be that hybrid defender. 

Guys I don't think should be on the field more:

  • Wilson, since you're taking snaps away from Victor to get him there. His snap count is pretty good as it is -- I'd love to see him get more targets in those snaps. He should be the primary PR though. 
  • Jameson Williams. Taking Olave off the field to get him Z snaps is a bad idea. Maybe put him at kickoff return?
  • Josh Proctor: we play a one high safety defense 90%+ of the time. Taking Jordan Fuller off the field is not a great idea. His time will come, until then, two high safety packages and occasionally spelling Fuller is good enough.

Except for a few long runs MSU seemed to overpower our o-line.

 i think by the end of the season, wade will have continued to ball out and be a top 10 pick. dude can play three of the four secondary positions at the next level.
 

Great! Okudah and Young are still better than him. He's #3 at best, but I would hear arguments for Davon Hamilton, Malik Harrison, or Jordan Fuller out for that spot as well.

He isn't good enough to come on the field for Dobbins or Teague at RB and isn't good enough to come on the field for Hill at H. That's really it. In big games, they like Hill as the PR too. But it seems Garrett Wilson has passed him there too.

...what? There's been plenty said about it, including a featured story on at least three other sites. Different outlets explore different topics.

I make a few things, depending on if I'm hosting or not:

  • Neat Elijah Craig, Woodford Rye, or Eagle Rare. 
  • Platform's Hard Seltzer
  • Wild Turkey 101 + Diet Ginger Ale + small amount of lemonade
  • Gold Tequila + Sprike Zero + Passionfruit Mango juice
  • Gold Tequila Strawberry Margaritas
  • Towards the cooler months I make Ramzy's Apple Pie Bourbon with Evan Williams. We may have consumed multiple bottles of this during the Bama and Oregon games in college.... https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/the-situational/2014/11/43997/the-situational-immortal-eyes

If they stick to the Narduzzi press quarters, I feel like the offense will just eat. They're going to have to change some stuff up to have a chance at slowing down the new offense.

PFF isn't a statistical ranking. It's based on actual player performance, and isn't weighted by opponent.
