    I don't think we have had a run stopping safety like him in a while. Still can work on his pass protection but Brendon coming down hill at 220 is scary.

    Really hope we can get Fuller to come back because our secondary could be nasty next year with a starting four of 24/1/25/4.

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    H&G, you're nicer than I am....question is, who made the starting S calls? Grinch (in charge of the S's), or Sciano/Grinch Co-DCs? It appeared that everyone on the shelf was tried back there, but once an injury happened, boom. Brendan came in, and everything seemed to be 'fixed'. Why took so long? Is there something about practices that wouldn't allow someone to see this potential? Wiser souls than I probably have the answer. but as H&G opined, 'makes you question things, doesn't it?" Anyway, the UFM chapter is closed, we now turn the chapter to Ryan Day, THE Ohio State University Football Coach. Here's hoping it's a long and exciting chapter! Go Bucks!

    I personally think its our preference for corner types playing safety. Brendon isn't in the typical mold of a Vonn Bell/Webb/Powell/Hooker/Fuller.

    Brendon is a bigger safety that maybe is a step slower in a straight line. Little did the coaches know that Brendon diagnoses plays so well that he's every bit as fast (if not more so) as the corner types we preferred

    and that was only because of injuries and an in game targeting ejection

    yes, it really does. It's not like he came in and was raw or obviously still needed some development. He came in out of desperation and was an immediate impact/stabilizing force player.

    That absolutely had to be obvious in practice at some point before that game.

    As @calibuck said, on to the Ryan Day era and getting some of this kind of bewildering nonsense sorted out.

    Loved watching this kids father and love what Brendon did for the Buckeyes this year.
  11. ShowMeBuck

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    So In the course of a few months it went from “we don’t have anyone next to Fuller and what do we do next year if Fuller is gone” to, “wow, 2019 with White and Fuller is going to be special and Proctor to compete as well”

    On that note, I’d love to see Proctor work in to a 5 man rotation with Fuller, White, Okudah, and Wade or a 6 man rotation if Sheff returns.

    No disrespect to Arnette but interchanging those 6 guys if they are all available could be really nice and keep some talented and fresh legs rotating in.

    Ohio State was confident when it took its seven game winning streak and No. 2 ranking to West Lafayette, Indiana for a primetime matchup against a three-loss Purdue squad last October.

    The Buckeyes had a pair of big-stage road wins under their belts against far superior competition in Penn State and TCU (Arlington, Texas wasn't a neutral site and you can meet me in the comments if you're feeling tough and want to fight). All they needed to do was take care of business to reach a much-needed bye week.

    Then David Blough and Rondale Moore happened.

    Ohio State's secondary was shredded by the Boilermakers, surrendering 378 passing yards, nearly nine yards per attempt and three touchdowns against no interceptions. The Buckeyes gave up a (then) season-high 49 points in the stunning 29-point defeat.

    After the game, former head coach Urban Meyer was asked about the adjustments he planned to make during Ohio State's off week.

    “I don't know if it's blow up,” Meyer said. “Once again, we're 7-1 and we've got to get the chance to be 8-1. That's the only focus. But there's some serious shortcomings right now we've got to get fixed...

    “A bye week gives you a little bit of time. Week 8, 9, you're into it now... That's hard to do right now, to make drastic changes when you're dealing with a banged-up football team.”

    By the time Ohio State suited up again, this time at home for a showdown with Nebraska, Meyer and the defensive coaching staff had made a significant change. For the first time in his collegiate career, Brendon White was starting alongside Jordan Fuller at safety.

    The true sophomore was recruited out of Olentangy Liberty High School as an athlete, and during his first two years at Ohio State, he shifted from offense as a wide receiver to defense as he tried to find his place on the roster.

    His promotion to starter was a clear sign that Ohio State's coaching staff was still searching for a game-changer at the position. It didn't take long for White to prove he belonged on the field.

    Ohio State's defense still struggled against the Cornhuskers, giving up 450 total yards and 31 points in a closer-than-it-should've-been five-point win. But White was absolutely everywhere, recording 13 tackles, eight of which were solo, to go along with two tackles for loss (all team highs).

    His coach was blown away, and expressed as much after the game.

    “Brendon White came in and did a hell of a job,” Meyer said.

    But for White, it was a moment he envisioned for a long time.

    “It is a dream come true. Hard work pays off," White said. “We all prepared for this. You never know what is going to happen in a game. We all face adversity, we faced it the right way and in a positive manner. No one got worried, we did our job and the rest took care of itself.”

    White's consistency gave Ohio State's defense a huge boost down the stretch. Over the Buckeyes' final six games of the season, the 6'2", 210-pound ballhawk finished in top five in total tackles in each contest.

    And in Ohio State's biggest game of the year against Michigan, White picked off a Joe Milton pass and returned it 49 yards to set up Ohio State's final score of the day in the fourth quarter.

    That's the kind of playmaking ability the Buckeyes' secondary desperately needed last year, and as co-defensive coordinators Greg Mattison and Jeff Hafley work to overhaul a unit that ranked 86 nationally in passing yards allowed, they can use White a foundational piece of the unit.
