5 weeks is enough to look at national rankings

    Buckeyes National Rankings as of 10/3 2004

    Offense
    Rushing #90
    Passing #56
    Scoring #62
    Total O #84

    Defense
    Rushing #57
    Passing #26
    Scoring #37
    Total D #31

    Punt Returns #36
    Kick Returns # 9
    Net Punting #45

    - We are in the bottom 25% at running the ball and just barely in the top 50% at stopping the run. Wisky has to be salivating. We have trouble stopping the run and even more trouble running it ourselves....very bad sign.

    -Barely in top 1/3 of country in total D and firmly in the bottom 1/3 in Total O Bottom line is this years D isn't good enough to carry yet another shitty Offense.

    -Great inprovement in Kick return games from 2003 but, as expected, punting is somewhat off. Again, Punting can't consistently bail out a shitty offense this year.

    This Saturday is either redemption or a complete fall from grace for this team. Wisky is the perfect opponent to either finally show we can be physical at the LOS or have the question officially put to bed for 2004.

    I agree as I stated in another thread, we will see if this was just a case of "look a head" or a case of "we are not that good".

    It is nice to be delusional and hope for the best. Unfortunately the trend has gone this way for several years now. If it continues, we'll lose more than the top QB recruit in the country (Mark Sanchez). Then Tressel will be jeopardizing himself. He needs to get rid of Bollman like cancer. I have no problems with JT, he is an excellent coach. I'm about 70% confident Bollman is fired at seasons end.

    OSU offense by ppg and total ypg

    1999
    23.8 ppg
    347.7 ypg

    2000
    27.6
    360.9

    2001
    26.0
    370.6

    2002
    29.3
    364.5

    2003
    24.8
    332

    2004 ytd
    25.0
    327.5

    Where's the trend? 5.9 ppg and 43.1 ypg is the largest variance I see over the past 5+ years.

    Go back to Bucknuts and hold hands with Riptide if you want to post bullshit like that.

    A progressively worsening rushing offense. I'm merely pointing out Bollman's ineptitude when handling this offense. No need to get violent.

    As people will see in the preview, Wisconsin has no passing game to speak of at all and they don't score that many points, but they are still 5-0. Unfortunately, we walk that fine line of "doing just enough offensively to win" that we will cross the wrong way once in a while. We really only need an offense that takes care of the ball and can pick up some slack when the defense has an off night (like Saturday), which I think is more than attainable at this juncture if a few changes are made.
