We ran a handful of run plays, but would run those handful out of a dozen different formations, giving it a different look each time, but the principles stayed the same. 

Once you install the passing tree, the OC can tag routes that he feels can exploit a certain defense. We ran a handful of 3 step drop plays (60 series), and a handful of 5 step drop plays (70 series), all of which can come from a dozen of formations. For instance, if you have a zone linebacker carrying a TE on a seam, you may tag the Z receiver on a slant. The play may have been “Trey right, 70 pass divide”, and to tag the route it becomes “Trey right, 70 pass divide, Z slant”. 

You can create hundreds of combinations out of this, but it’s based on a handful of plays, coming from a handful of formations, with the ability to tag a handful of routes.

There are a lot of earlier options that could’ve changed the landscape of the program tremendously. I don’t think that’s all that necessary, as we are in pretty good shape as we currently sit heading into the next decade. 

So instead of picking something involving Jim Tressel and emails or a bad fourth down call with Braxton in 2013, I’ll go with Chris Olave sticking with the route for another two seconds in the last seconds of the Fiesta Bowl in 2019.

Thinking out loud....

A package that consists of...

DE - Smith

NT - Togiai

DE - Cooper

OLB - Harrison

Will - Werner

Sam - Borland

OLB - Browning

You could get quite creative blitzing out of that front....

He’s sniffing the Mount, but it’s hard to argue:

1. Archie

2. Zeke

3. Eddie

4. JK

I should have specified that stylistically, he can be a back like Beanie, which I stand by as saying that isn’t a bad thing. But neither player is going to excel running zone schemes, which at this point, has shown to be Day’s bread and butter. If Teague cannot learn to be patient, see where the hole develops, and then burst, as opposed to sprinting to a particular gap, he may get passed by a more versatile back like Crowley. 

Comment 01 Jan 2020

At his best, he can be the next Beanie Wells, which is by no means a bad thing. 

I see the same problems as others do, which includes vision, hips, and the fast twitch burst that we have been accustomed to with JK. Master will be at his best while building up momentum into a predetermined hole, which will cause the offense problems in a zone run scheme unless he can improve his vision and patience.

For this season, I’ve had a Bloody Mary to start my morning every game. The exception? The Big10 Championship. We were eating dinner before the game and the old lady brought it to my attention. Thus, a Bloody Mary was my dessert after a large German dinner; not tasty. I believe this is the sole reason for the sluggish start against the Badgers; the football Gods were not happy. 

Tomorrow morning, bright and early....I won’t make the same mistake twice.

My biggest worry is that we play too soft on the outside to respect their elite WRs, which causes them to nickel and dime us to death with underneath quick game. This also presents a problem to our strength in the pass rushing game, as we won’t be able to get to the QB. Hopefully we play aggressive on the outside, and allow Jordan Fuller to play over the top well enough to limit the big play. 

I’m most confident in this run game of ours. This is the best GCG combo we have had in awhile, and I trust in Dobbins to get hit and move the pile. If he gets 30 or more carries, we win this game.

True, but give them credit for creating a game plan to limit him. There hasn’t been many opportunities for him, as he has been optioned, chipped, cracked, etc. 

Comment 30 Nov 2019

Easy adjustments. We have been playing four linebackers on first down. Gotta get back to a base 4-3 and get another defensive back on the field, which will help Werner and Borland free up their weaknesses against quicker TEs and slot WRs. 

Speaking of Borland, we need Browning. No, I’m not one of the crazies that clamor for this all the time, but we don’t need Borland on the field to sniff out runs. We need speed in pass pro. 

Otherwise, there isn’t much we can do. They’ve eaten us up in man and zone. They have arguably the best three WRs in the country; they’re going to get theirs.

Can my man Wyatt Davis get some love for absolutely destroying a man in pass pro right there?!?!

Comment 29 Nov 2019

1. Win the turnover battle. This team showed that it can still win if we lose it (ala Penn State), but those are the things that can completely change the outcome in The Game. 

2. Win the run game. This should be easily accomplished, but cannot be overlooked. We have to establish JK and continue to feed him. On the flip side, we have to smother them without safety help. We will need the back end to play almost exclusively against their WRs, who are the strength of their team.

3. Unleash Chase. He has to have a big game, but it doesn’t have to be in the stat line. He could have zero pressures and zero sacks, as long as it is from doubles on him or slide protection to his side, that ultimately frees up the rest of the defense to shine. If they block Chase 1 on 1 and have success, it could be problematic for the defense. 

Comment 25 Nov 2019

So right now you have Oklahoma/Baylor, Utah, and Georgia/Alabama fighting over the 4th spot. 

If we were to lose, we would be added to the mix, but for the 3rd and 4th spot with that same group. There’s not a real scenario that would take the combination of a 1 loss PAC12, BIG12 champ and a SEC non-champ over a 1 loss B1G champ. I just cannot see that happening. 

Comment 23 Nov 2019

I love how Penn State’s defense is known for their run game, and we literally ran the ball down their throat for 91 yards and the Tuddy. 

Comment 23 Nov 2019

Sticking with the earlier prediction of 35-6 Buckeyes. Clifford isn’t McSorely. Cain and Co. aren’t Sanders and Barkley. Limit Hamler and this offense is pedestrian.
