    Heres a fucking observation. Our offense fucking sucks and our defense isnt much fucking better. i hope we get knocked out of the top 25 fucking rankings.

    how many shitty fucking games have to be masked by a W before we realize Lydell ross fucking sucks, our offensive line fucking sucks, and our defensive line fucking sucks.

    how many shitty fucking runningbacks have to make 1 fucking cut and blow by us before we realize we overpursue on every fucking play.

    why havent we seen HAW??!!??!?!?!?!

    fucking HAW/??????

    we still have to fucking get rid of shithead ross before we see HAW. im so fucking fed up with shitty teams playing the game of their lives because we are the best team they play.....then we fucking play down to them. 28-2 coming into this game and those 2 loses were to good teams......but we fucking suck this year and the close wins combined with the close wins of last year masked that.

    You know--I don't know anything about it... but if we've seen one true frosh and not the other, he might be getting shirted? Did Pittman impress more than Haw? Pittman looks solid enough.

    I can't believe Santonio dropped that pass. I can't believe Nuge missed that kick (turns out it didn't matter). Our big players didn't make big plays at the end like we've grown so accustomed to. Let's not let the sky fall on us yet, eh?

    That being said--we need to get better in the trenches or we're going to be in for a long year.

    We were 28-2 coming into the game yes, but that was in spite of not having a decent offense, or even JR High level play calling. Tonight Tressel was outcoached, and if this doesnt send a signal to him that "Tresselball" isnt going to be able to work much longer, I dont know what will.

    I dont think any of the starters should be assured of thier positions except maybe Holmes, and Pittman played a decent game. IF Ross starts another game during his OSU career it is painfully obvious that Tressel is Loyal to a fault.

    the bucks could be in serious trouble....i agree 27....the defense is not as good as before....and as long as tress and bollman run the will get worse....

    cant run....cant block...cant tackle....cant defend......

    its funny, but the only thing this team can do is throw on offense....and tressel wont let that happen....

    OSUsushichic Fired up! Ready to go!

    We haven't seen a lot of things... where was the tight end? how about Ginn? How about the entire O-line? Ugh. Our offense has a lot of work to do, and even our defense looks really porous. I'm thinking Bollman and Snyder have a lot to do with this. :(

    im about fucking sick of the word tresselball too. he fucking plays football to win and adapts to each team. its not fucking tresselball....its not fucking different than any other team who plays defensive football.

    "tresselball" isnt the fucking problem.....our offensive and defensive lines are.

    Couple things...I dont care how Zwick looks in practice, he isn't making good decisions. He had 1 fumble which led to 3 points and a int that we missed out on 3 points. We should be a running team first and always. Pittman almost always gained positive yards running between the tackles. Yet we go 4 and 5 wide even in OT when the clock wasnt the issue.

    Also on always worries me when he lines up on the right hash. I think all (or nearly all) of his misses the last 2+ years have been from there...Anyone want to look that up ?

    There was no consistent pressure from the D in this game. We are definitely missing Anderson and Smith.

    Offense is another issue. It's been a problem for 3 years, yet they can not solve it.

    I think Snyder may be in over his head, where were the defensive adjustments? How many times are we going to run zone coverage when they are picking us apart all night from it. Pressure on the QB , anyone ever heard of it, because god knows Snyders defensive calls never seem to get any. Another thing Mark, get your ass up to the booth so you can make the adjustments yourself, its bs that he is on the sidelines and not able to correctly see things.
