    Observations today

    Fresno State whoops Kansas State. That won me 500.00 today. Big 12 is not as good as everyone thought.

    Southern Miss beats Nebraska see point above

    Iowa survived a scare

    Kyle Orton is putting up some silly retared numbers at Purdue

    Notre Dame beats Meatchicken... Not in a million years would have I guessed that. Still trying to figure out how I feel about this. I laugh but then realize it was good for Notre Dame.. ughh

    Georgia is not that good.

    Way to get it done Indiana... Fantastic... I hate the PAC 10

    Cincinatti is getting it done vs Miami of Ohio... Glad to see that

    UMMM... New Hamphsire is beating Rutgers who beat Michigan State.. WTF is going on here?

    I hate everything about the SEC but their fans KICK ASS!!!! Go watch the Texas and Arkansas and think about how pathetic our fans were today. Absolutely retarted that 100k fans can that be f'ing quiet.

    The Ohio State game.
    - Can we keep Nudge and just pay him next year?
    - Fans sucked
    - Man I was really hoping to bitch slap Marshall. It seems like one or 2 plays where we could have been all over them. 4 absolute stupid Turnovers, and our inability to create them will hurt us. Plus this was Marshalls Super Bowl. Face it Football is a game of emotion and Marshall had more today. Man I hate Marshall. We could have and should have won that by 3 touchdowns.
    - Looking at the other upsets today I feel better about the game
    - Get better Dustin... What a shame
    - Holmes... Wow.. NFL here he comes I think
    - Guys does Bollman have to go? Man our running game is sad... I mean sad
    - One poster dogged ou LB's. They were fantastic!!!!! What game did you watch. The running Marshall was able to do was based on over persuit and DL not playing lanes. This can and will be fixed.

    Did I mention I am tired of the weak ass fans at Buckeye games??? Horrible
     
  2. nice post except our front seven will probably grade out pretty low. The two tackles and d-ends regardless of who it was, were getting blowed of the ball our lb's missed alot of tackles. Marshall out played us the whole second half, our o-line is down right bad. The question is can we fix it this week.

    I disagree, I think our OL played pretty well, especially considering we lsot 3 satrters from last year. The running game is not (soley) the OLs fault IMO.

    I watched a game where MDA was slow, out of position, timid, and most often blocked out of the action. He may have great athleticism and lateral pursuit, but he doesn't have the mindset for an MLB. He got beat consistently on running plays.

    Hawk and Carpenter made plays, but few (if any) big ones (sacks, TFL's, fumbles caused, etc.).

    Just a bad game overall for the D.

    bucknut11 Defense still wins Championships

    We've become pretty damn spoiled when our defense only gives up 14 points and fans say "just a bad game overall for the D." Unreal.

    Bucknutty you are correct.. 14 points. If you a D only gives up 14 points a game then the Bucks should be able to win every game!! D'Andrea payed timid.. did not see that. Hawk and Carpenter played great. I agree a lot of the tackles were 3-4 yards later but that was the D-Line. Everything that I seen went wrong with the D can be fixed. There was nothing that I seen where I we need to say we do not have the talent, or the scheme is bad. Fundementals can be worked on.

    The only glaring thing that I see is our OL play. I love Bollman, and his players like to play for him, but our O-Line play has seemed to go down since Bollman has been here.

    Here are the drive summaries for the scores OSU has given up this year:

    I see a pretty clear picture here.

    Average field position for the turnover drives: OSU 30 yd line
    Average number of plays/yds from TO drives: 3/16
    Opponents points off TO's YTD: 20
    Opponents non TO points YTD: 7

    The TO's are to be expected with a young team but take them away and we have two blowouts so far.
     

  10. Your right hub its not soley the ol but thats where it starts, they set the tone. Right now it just looks like, they are getting punched in the grill. :biggrin:
     
  11. WE DONT HAVE A TAILBACK yes we have one but not osu caliber, this is THE ohio state university, every year we should have a top 10 back in the country

    the defense needs to be taught what a turnover is.....you know those things that have your asses backed up inside your own 20....those things that get you off the field.....

    all this talk about pitcock, richardson and fraser being beasts this year is unfounded....the defense is SPECTACULAR...take away the dline.....

    Marshall went right at Simon all afternoon. We should all be thankful they had a lot of confidence in O'Connor, (fake attempt and left shank) Without those its a different game all together. But damn don't you love when you heart is beating so fast you think it might jump right out of your chest. Love that feeling, lets have 2002 all over again.


    The most important thing about yesterday to remember is that a W is still a W no matter what happened before the clock ran out.
