    Eye-roll of the night: ND saying OSU ran up the score today. Apparently did not know the starters were out at the half. :bored:

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    83-3: I'm giving myself the 83 because we god damn would have scored another TD without calling the game. Didn't see Fredo's safety coming.

    600+ yards: 601
    5 TDs (4 passing/1 rushing) for Fields: He had 6 (4/2)
    3 TDs for Dobbins: Missed on this one. He only had one
    4 Fredo Turnovers: Fredo only had 3
    Fredo <250 yards in total offense: 130 yards

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Straight into my veins. Straight the fuck in.

    Game Recap

    Games like yesterday are fun early but get boring very quickly. The interest level slightly rises in the fourth quarter as you try to figure who #37 on offense is (he's Derrick Malone, a "warrior type" redshirt senior walk-on tight end from Dayton, and he played). Ultimately, the game was worthless. We learned nothing except that Ohio State is very very good, and Fredo is very very bad.

    With the bench emptied right on down to the Ben Schmiesings and Brock Davins (who were still probably better than Fredo's players), there were bound to be several "firsts" in this game, and there were:

    Jameson Williams: 1st career touchdown (61-yard reception); finished with 2 receptions for 74 yards
    Marcus Crowley: 1st career touchdown (7-yard reception); finished with 4 rushes for 22 yards; 1 reception for 7 yards
    Steele Chambers: 1st career touchdown (2-yard run); finished with 8 rushes for a team-high 63 yards
    Ellijah Gardiner: 1st career catch (10-yard reception); finished with 1 reception for 10 yards
    Amari McMahon: 1st career carry (10-yard rush); finished with 1 rush for 10 yards
    Jeff Okudah: 1st career interception; finished with 1 tackle and 1 interception
    Dallas Gant: 1st career sack; finished with a team-high 5 tackles and 1.5 sacks
    Zaid Hamdan: 1st career tackle; finished with 3 tackles
    Craig Young: 1st career tackle; finished with 1 tackle
    Chris Chugunov: 1st Buckeye TD pass (38 yards to Garrett Wilson); finished 6/7 for 82 yards and 2 TDs
    Gunnar Hoak: 1st Buckeye TD pass (61 yards to Jameson Williams); finished 2/2 for 65 yards and 1 TD

    After four games we know two things for certain about Ohio State: (a) the Buckeyes are loaded at every position except (b) quarterback. It's Justin Fields and a couple of grad transfers who are strictly there for mop-up duties. There is no J.T. Barrett to replace an injured Braxton Miller, no Cardale Jones to replace an injured J.T. Barrett, no Joe Burrow waiting for the shot he never got, not even Tate Martell who could at least run a read-option offense in an emergency situation. No, it's Justin Fields or bust.

    So the question remains: Is Justin Fields good enough to carry this team to the promised land? Is he Terrelle Pryor with a better arm, or Dwayne Haskins with better legs?

    We have all seen what Fields is capable of, the arm strength, the speed, the power. We have also seen Fields make several bad plays and bad decisions against a bunch of CFB bottom feeders. Those bad plays and bad decisions tend to get overlooked when the Buckeyes win by forty-something (or seventy-something), and there are enough highlights and stats to prove the player's greatness despite the gaffes. But one can (or at least should) expect the frequency and consequences of those bad plays and bad decisions to increase as the competition stiffens. Next week, Nebraska will provide a small step up in terms of talent, and a rather larger step up in terms of atmosphere (night game on the road). Then it's a very good Michigan State defense (October 5th), soon followed by a top-10 Wisconsin squad (October 26th), and with traditional powerhouses Penn State (November 23rd) and Michigan (November 30th) to end the regular season. That's a tough gantlet for any quarterback to run, and if Fields can run it then the going only gets tougher with the conference championship game and perhaps even the playoffs. We'll see what the kid is made of. For the Buckeyes to have any chance at a national championship, he'll have to be Dwayne Haskins with better legs.

    I am quite sure I heard the officials call a personal foul on "number 27, defense" (OSU was on defense) at some point yesterday. There is nobody on the roster wearing 27

    I wonder if they got Craig Young (37)?

    Just not following this? The guy hasn't thrown a pic and is completing 70% of his passes as a first year starter. He hasn't even thrown a pass yet that should have been picked off.

    Yes he's thrown few incompletions and has taken a handful of sacks but what QB hasn't?

    I already answered your questions. Since you probably neglected to read it the first time, here it is again:

    I was listening to it on the radio; because U10 soccer tournament in Newark, OH, but that's another complaint for another day. I believe Keels or Lachey said it belonged to Okudah.

    No I read that part perfectly as well. I am just not following what else Justin is supposed to be doing? He also has played two defenses that actually are fairly solid.

    I just don't believe many are giving him the credit he deserves. Yes he is not perfect but no quarterback is. For being in his fourth start and for him to have the command that he has shown is incredible in my opinion. He has no interceptions and frankly hasn't even come close to throwing one because it was a bad read (almost had one that went off Olaves hands).

    So I just don't see his bad decisions? He hasn't forced things into coverage and he doesn't turn the ball over.

    For how little experience he has I think buckeye nation isn't appreciating what he's done IMO. For example the media asking him "what went wrong" against IU after he get threw 3 TDs and 0 Ints with 58% completion in a 51 to 10 massacre was ridiculous to me.
