    We need Pitcock to have a monster year. The more teams key on him the more our outstanding LB's will be free to wreak havoc. Also helps to free up our DE's in pass rush.

    VprHis Get off my lawn, you hooligans!

    I think the Key to our D performing to the standard of the past two years is to be solid at every position--by which I mean having a player in place who will do his job, and not make many mistakes--with one "big name" at each level to draw attention.


    For instance:
    3 Solid DL, One Monster - I think we're fine here. Among Pitcock, Fraser, and Kudla, anyone who draws a double team will create an instant weakness elsewhere om the O line. Anyone else thrown in the rotation with 1 or 2 of these guys will keep us OK up front.

    2 Solid LB, One Scary Dude - You're kidding, right? We've got 3 scary dudes on the field at any given time... and the backups are moderately frightening, as well. 'Nuff said. (BTW, I consider Freeman to be a Serious MoFo in training.)

    3 solid DB, one Opposite-pole magnet (as in, the ball magically goes the other way...)

    Here's where things get tricky. DB is te perceived weakness of our D, at least the past two years. I think this is more a reflection of defensive philosophy than of actual weakness. We will force you to beat us through the air, because eventually you WILL screw up, and we WILL make you pay for it.

    Corners: Fox and E.J. Look for teams to test E.J. early on. If Tress is correct, he COULD be that magnet for us. Everyone throws at Fox, and the D allows it, because you may get the ball, will not get past Fox (SORRY to open up that can of worms again, folks.) The two-deep should be able to provide a couple of solid guys for relief, maybe nothing spectacular, but then again... if Ginn's mind is as quick as his feet, he could be out on the field locking things down ...

    Safeties: Salley, Mitchell, Whitner, & Co. Prototypical OSU safeties: good speed, good cover skills, solid center fielders, in other words. Oh, and if you cross their pass, they will cross your eyes for you... and you can try to focus on the little birdies flapping happily past.

    The secondary will be tested early and often. I think they're up to the test.


    Basically, I think that if you look at any level of our D, there is someone there for opposing OC's to worry about, and that's all we need. If you focus on our attention getters, everyone else on the field is good enough to get the job done. And GOD HELP YOU if you don't focus on those big-play guys, cause nothing short of Divine Intervention will keep them off of your ball-carrier.

    Hopefully, someone among Fraser, Pitcock, Kudla, Patterson, Cotton, et al, can get decent pressure on the qb's to meake it easier for the rest of the D. Personally, I think Patterson is going to be a player. The problem is (good problem) that we have up to 8 DL that will see pt. I think, given the time, most will develop into great players.

    It all starts up front ! Someone grab the bull by the balls !!

    Two words for you Jay Richardson, the next Will Smith. Big fast and nasty. Ready to make the impact we all crave on the DL.

    You gotta believe the coaches think someone is ready to step up at DE. Why else would they allow Frost to move to TE? I'd love to see Richardson have a big year. He looked awfully good in the spring game.

    Pitcock is a bull. We're absolutely loaded at DT. Our run defense will still be one of the best in the country.

    Welcome to BP, Socky :)

    I can't decide whether I like Pitcock or Patterson the best. Oh well, they both will play.

    I'm wondering what the DT rotation is going to be like. Pitcock will probably get the most playing time, but what about between Green and Patterson? I like Patterson more because I think he compliments Pitcock's Tim Anderson style, but Green does have more experience from Scott being injured last year. Of course then there is Cotton, Penton, and Abdallah.

    I think Patterson will alternate inside and outside of the DL. He has extremely refined pass rushing skills that the staff wants to use. I'm looking for much improved play from the DEs this coming season. Pitcock has greatly improved his technique from last year. There were times when he played last year like the red shirt frosh that he was.

    I think patterson will play on the outside. He has the size to maybe play inside, but i think JT would rather have an above average DE run stopper then an above average DT pass rusher

    Pitcock primed to make big ‘jump’

    Former Piqua star hopes to soar for the Buckeyes

    <!--startclickprintexclude-->[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]<!--endclickprintexclude-->
    COLUMBUS — Ohio State defensive tackle Quinn Pitcock has learned the key to success is staying low to the ground. But if the position ever calls for a little levitation, the Piqua product can handle that, too.

    Ohio State players were timed and tested two weeks before the start of preseason camp, and the 6-foot-3, 286-pound sophomore shocked onlookers with a 35-inch vertical jump.

    Strength-and-conditioning coach Al Johnson said the leap is the best ever for an OSU lineman. And only about a half-dozen current Buckeyes did better.

    “There are guys who weigh 100 pounds less than him that can’t do that,” Johnson said.

    But Pitcock’s hops might not have been so startling if his teammates had watched him on a basketball court.

    “I can dunk a women’s basketball,” Pitcock said. “I can almost dunk a men’s basketball, but my hands are too small. It slips out on the way up.”

    Pitcock’s career seems to be upward bound after making an impact as a redshirt freshman last season. He recorded three sacks while appearing in all 13 games and had more tackles for losses (five) than any other non-starter.

    The OSU defensive line has plenty of unanswered questions after losing three starters to the NFL, but one of the few certainties is Pitcock. Asked which newcomer appears most destined for stardom, defensive line coach Jim Heacock didn’t hesitate.

    “Quinn,” he said. “He’s going to be a special football player. He’s very talented.” "

    I really like this guy. I think he has the potential to be a Tim Anderson type on our D-line, and expect him to be a force for the Bucks defense.

    With the strength of our linebackers and DBs, the Bucks defense could be dominant again this year. This is exactly what our inexperienced, yet talented, QBs need, and could lead the way to another fun season of Buckeye football.

    Go Bucks!

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    You watch, he'll be better than TA. I will place vcash on that!

    Anderson didn't have the speed, strength, or athletic ability of Pitcock. The one thing Anderson did have was leverage, Quinn will learn that.
