Game Thread Game One: Ohio State 38, Youngstown St. 6 (final)

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Obviously, I was wrong in my prediction, and you were right. We should probably try to keep it quiet, though. The entire board would lose respect for life, itself, if it was known that Zurp was wrong about a prediction.

    Everyone talking about the o-line play and the lack of running game......I saw things a tad different. Dont disagree that the o-line didnt look good, and didnt play together, but I also thought that the play calling in the running game was very basic and generic. Of course they really didnt have to show much, and that is always better. I saw the same pulling-guard, off tackle plays over and over, especially when Beanie was in there. When YSU could put 10 guys in the box because they knew what was coming, they did, and that's just hard to run against. Seemed like the guard-pulling was slow to develope as well, which allowed massive penetration.

    Give em a couple games and see what happens, but I will never understand why, when you get inside the 5, you MUST line up and cram it up the middle. A fake there, and a pitch to the outside, naked bootleg, etc..........and you score easily.

    On a scale of 1-10 in complexity for an offensive scheme, this game was a 2.

    If anyone is expecting anything different next week, go ahead and get ready for more of the same...unless the game is closer than expected.

    JT is not going to show anything this early...right now, this is like the scrimmage season in HS ball...throw a bunch of kids in the fire and see how they respond.

    When you can play that many people, you know it's no contest.
    But, there were many interesting moments and play.
    Boeckman looks solid and this is his team.
    Many freshman are good enough to contribute this year.
    WRs looked good.
    Beanie, looked uninterested.
    Saine looked like a excellent back.
    Coaches got to look at lots of kids.
    Homan looks like he may have passed Freeman at outside LBer.
    Freeman missed several tackles.

    Expect to see more movement in the depth chart/starting groups.

    I do recall at least one play action....a pass to (TE) Ballard. for about 9 yards

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    If you can't punch it in on first and goal... and they amply demonstrated that they couldn't... against Youngstown State you don't have a running game. It reminded me of 2004 - 05. You begin to wonder just what sort of attraction/benefit Jim Bollman brings to the coaching staff.

    Hell, I don't think we'll see much til Purdue. By then, hopefully Boeckman will be able to hit Hartline once in a while .... :p (He's (Hartline) on my fantasy team, so I'm being jokingly critical)

    in short yardage situations, YSU's D-line was just submarining our O-line and creating a big pile, with the LBs filling the holes. rather than go outside or run play action, Tressel chose to run straight at it... probably for a couple reasons. 1) he didn't want to run up the score. it's not like we couldn't have thrown up 50 or more points if we wanted to, and 2) to get the kids to experience some difficulty. remember what happens when you have it too easy all season?

    you should know by now that Tressel saves those plays for the end of the season... no reason to give TSUN or PSU or Wisky a chance to watch it on film...

    Alumni band plays sour tune for 400 OSU football fans

    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    COLUMBUS - A computer glitch caused a ticket mix-up that displaced about 400 Ohio State fans who had arrived to watch the Buckeyes take on Youngstown State, but instead found the OSU alumni band already in the same seats, university officials said. Officials told the miffed fans on Saturday that they'd have to wait in a line for a seat reassignment or a refund.

    I think it was WAY too early to make the statement that "[we] don't have a running game" if you honestly meant that.
