    "We always talk about the offense's job in a game like this--get two first downs, get the ball to midfield and let's get the ball down inside the ten yard line."

    Never thought I'd hear a quote like that from Urban.

    Playing any offensive team with a pulse, that pussy/Marty/Tressel/Dantonio ball strategy will get you beat.

    Offense's fucking job is to score fucking points.

    Have you? Or do you just assume that everything that went poorly when he was in the game must've been his fault, instead of Jordan, you know, the guy who actually false started us into a punt and who snapped the ball a mile to the right?

    You also ignore that Martell took OSU to the doorstep, setting up the only TD in the first half--running for 5 yards down to the 1-foot line. And I'm sorry, but Jordan's shoddy snap or not, this (what happened when Tate entered the game in the red zone in the fourth quarter) is a hell of a lot better than what our red zone offense has been producing recently:

    1-10 MSU 21 Weber, Mike rush for 13 yards to the MSU8, 1ST DOWN OSU (Willis, Khari;Scott, Josiah).
    1-G MSU 08 Weber, Mike rush for 1 yard to the MSU7 (Owens, Gerald;Reschke, Jon).
    2-G MSU 07 Weber, Mike rush for 3 yards to the MSU4 (Beesley, Drew)

    The SEC fix was in on Bama's first offensive series. The Bama player fumbled but they called it dead. There was a shit ton of time for the replay booth to call down to pause the action. Even the announcers were puzzled.

    Regarding Tate Martell usage;

    His first snap was at the 5. He takes it and gets 4 yards to the 1, setting up the only offensive TD of the first half.

    No drive was killed.

    I like how there are a lot of OSU fans (none over here) that are shitting all over this win after praying all week to whatever deity listening that we would just win the game. Honestly any time we play Sparty, I'm generally just happy to get any kind of win. Dantonio has been a thorn in our side for too long.

    Except the fumble and the false start/punt.

    I’m not saying Tate is even directly responsible, but I am saying drives stalled out with him taking snaps.

    Not saying the kid can’t ball, I was just pointing out what happened. I don’t take issue with his 4 yard gain.

    I’d say Jeff’s assessment of mixed results is fair.

    And yeah, beating a dead horse. My bad. F Sparty, got the W!

    Interesting how it was what, a 3-5 point spread and yet we drop in the polls after beating Sparty by 20 pts. We nearly double the rushing yardage that the best rush D in CFB gives up per game but we drop in the polls. OSU plays lights out on D and Special Teams only giving up 6 points yet we drop in the polls. We beat a top 20 team on the road but we drop in the polls.

    Go figure

    meanwhile UF and OU were double digit favorites at home and each won by the skin of their teeth.

    Look at their movement. OU stays the same, UF moves up 5.

    Polls/media/committee is so fucked it's sad. No use expecting anything positive from them.

    OSU season will always be a success if they win The Game.

    Fuck the media.

    As opposed to drives stalling out for the same reasons with Haskins ? We only scored 2 offensive TDs... 1 of which Martell got us to the goal line. The other was all Weber wanting to finish the game strong. We could have had Bauserman in there.
    Jordan's bad snapping and false starts haven't had any correlation to whose at QB.
    The running game definitely got a boost with Martell in the rzone... even running the same play over and over again.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Martell's first play was in the 2nd quarter. I think Ohio State had first and goal at the 7, and he ran the read option, keeping it for 6 yards. They then took him out and the next play was a 0-yard play. The third down play was the pop-pass/sweep to Campbell.
