    Agree. I still think he was good, but he wasn't on like the last 2 weeks. Good thing is it was just a bit off on most throws and hopefully with the first road start out of the way, it'll help come Nebraska.

    Other than that, I think my biggest takeaway is that this team is probably the most well rounded in recent memory. Mix of talent and experience on all positions, with only the OL having a lot of new starters.

    On offense, Fields just needs to get quicker on his reads and decisions, and we have to see how the defense will handle an elite offense, because they'll eventually have to move away from the zone in big games.

    Chase Young, DE: No surprises here, as the best defensive player in the country was an unstoppable force yet again. Indiana’s offensive line had trouble keeping pressure off quarterback Peyton Ramsey all afternoon, mostly resorting to quick passes without the ability to sit back and throw. Young was at the forefront of the pressure every time he was on the field, finishing with three tackles, two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss.

    Young’s ability to completely take over on defense has been almost unbelievable. Despite playing only 10 quarters of football, the junior has already registered five sacks. Even when Young isn't directly taking down opposing quarterbacks, he is completely altering the offense’s game plan. Ohio State has done a good job of dropping him back into coverage in certain situations, allowing him to use his size and speed to stop screen passes and adding extra confusion to blockers assigned to stop the Predator.

    J. K. Dobbins, RB: When Mike Weber missed the season opener against Indiana in 2017, a freshman by the name of J.K. Dobbins made his Ohio State debut on the road against the Hoosiers. All he did was rush for 181 yards, shattering school records for a freshman running back. Returning back to the scene of the crime two years later, Dobbins once again had a day against Indiana. The junior somehow performed even better than his last trip to Bloomington, rushing for 193 yards and a touchdown, with another score through the air.

    Dobbins has looked back to his freshman self, chasing a third-straight 1000-yard rushing season. He has already ran for 425 yards in just three games, on pace for what would be his best season yet. The offensive line has been excellent thus far, and with Dobbins finally getting the chance to be the every-down back, there could very well be a few more records broken in 2019, and maybe even a trip to New York.

    Chris Olave, WR: A bunch of people (myself included) saw Chris Olave as a potential breakout candidate this season. So far, not only has Olave broken out as an incredibly reliable offensive threat, but he has very much looked like Ohio State’s No. 1 receiver — and the favorite target of Justin Fields. Today was more of the same for the sophomore, catching three passes for a team-high 70 yards, with a touchdown and a blocked punt to add to the ledger.

    Olave clearly earned his way onto the field with his special teams play, blocking another punt after also doing so in a big spot in last year’s big win over Michigan. Given the opportunity, the wideout has really shined on offense. With some of the sturdiest hands on the team and crisp route-running, Olave has made plays all over the field. He has done a really great job of extending routes when Fields rolls out, finding his way back to the ball to give his quarterback and open target downfield.

    My big takeaway today is that Tom Allen is a clown.

    He’s putting way too many eggs in the Beat Ohio State basket every year for a 5-7 coach, and Buster Douglas is a Buckeye, so probably not a good model for your motivational shenanigans.

    Favorite thing about this team so far is that they seem to be playing with a controlled, Sith-like rage that I haven't seen from an OSU team in forever. Every week is looking like that scene at the end of Rogue One where Darth Vader is just methodically killing those Rebel troopers. It's just been surgical beatings week after week. I love it. Previous OSU felt like all they had to do was show up and teams would be instantly scared of them, resulting in games that were closer than they should of been. This OSU team seems to want to remind others, very painfully, why they're a Top 5 team.

    The fact this team went from most penalized in the NCAA for two years running to playing disciplined, mostly penalty free ball in one year is remarkable.

    Yeah. That clip was awful. Dude getting red faced like a high school gym teacher and his kids so clearly weren’t buying the shit he was shoveling at all. Does he not realize none of them were born when Douglas fought Tyson?

    I didn't use the term "Sith-like rage" (although I love it and am most definitely stealing it), but echoed the same sentiment at the game watch today. This team is playing like the proverbial "choke you over checkers" mentality. Every single play we seem focused, and bound and determined to dominate in every facet. Its early and we need to see how we perform against better opponents, but I love how the team is playing so far and the clear improvement on defense.

    I just have to ask... is the Hoosier still a living, breathing thing? Or is it dead now? :lol:

    I guess you wouldn’t like Woody or Earl Bruce very much as a head coach either then…
