    If we can forget about Fields for Heisman, can we say Dobbins for Heisman?

    I was at the game and we look a lot better on film than we did live, IMHO. IDK if it is just my rose colored glasses or what, but it felt like pretty much for 3 and a half quarters that Sparty could at any time start a comeback. Now looking at the tv broadcast it doesn't look that way at all, so dunno. BUT I must say that the addition of the wifi to Ohio Stadium was MUCH appreciated, it was fantastic to be able to watch replays on YouTubeTV on my phone (which previously would have failed miserably due to congestion of the network), replays which they do not show on the jumbotron, and I was able to leave the stadium with more than 50% of my battery remaining. We have a good football team this year folks :wink: game is being edited now and will be posted later today.

    The case for the Buckeyes at No. 1? NFL scouts point to talent gap: 'Ohio State would definitely beat Clemson'
    Pete Thamel
    Yahoo Sports Oct 5, 2019, 11:51 PM

    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Scouts from 14 NFL teams lined the sideline in pre-game on Saturday night here, clad in their slick windbreakers, custom coaching pants and logoed dry fits.

    They came from every corner of the NFL universe to see Ohio State and Michigan State, with Miami’s Chris Grier the only general manager of the bunch. The robust showing offered some clarity to the proceedings on the field, where Ohio State simultaneously sputtered through its first modest challenge of the season yet managed to dominate No. 25 Michigan State, 34-10.

    How can you explain a team looking listless for parts of two quarters and still muddling its way to eventual dominance? Well, those scouts weren’t in town to go to the Short North or see the Blue Jackets’ blueliners. “I’ve seen both Ohio State and Clemson,” a veteran scout told Yahoo Sports this week. “Ohio State would definitely beat Clemson.”

    We’ve crossed the threshold in the college football season where talent and performance need to cancel out the biases of expectations and brands. We’ve hit the juncture where wins can be gauged against the opposition’s performance in other games, and there’s just enough flavor from conference play for identities to have formed.

    Ohio State’s aura of infallibility faded amid the brisk fall evening, as they’d been ripping apart teams at an unsustainable clip. But considering Alabama’s youth, Clemson’s puzzling offensive struggles and the questions about Georgia’s skill on the outside, it’s not unreasonable to make an argument that the Buckeyes are the best team in the country. LSU fans could argue themselves in the conversation, Oklahoma has a prove-it game against Texas in Dallas next week and Wisconsin has the same here at the Horseshoe in three weeks.

    But halfway through Ryan Day’s first season, the highest compliment to the re-jiggered staff, juiced-up defense and evolved offensive identity he’s brought is that the Buckeyes are a heavy favorite to return to the College Football Playoff for the first time since the 2016 season.

    The story of Day’s 6-0 journey through the first half of the schedule begins with talent. This is a team that’s flush on both sides of the ball, with defensive end Chase Young and cornerback Jeffrey Okudah projecting as top-10 NFL draft picks. (Defensive back Shaun Wade could join them in the first round if he keeps progressing.) On offense, tailback J.K. Dobbins showcased his continued evolution on Saturday, rushing for 172 yards, including a 67-yard touchdown burst that Day termed a "home run" that "really changed the game." Some of the credit needs to go to Urban Meyer and the robust recruiting operation that director of player personnel Mark Pantoni built under Meyer’s watch. “This is the most talent that Ohio State has had since 2015,” another NFL scout told Yahoo Sports. “They’re talented, they’re deep and they play really hard. This team is a monster.”

    Couple things...

    1. Tuf needs to play a lot less. Maybe against Wisconsin he would do well but on MSU's only TD drive he missed a tackle that lead to a big run and then somehow ended up on Stewart who had a big reception the next play. It felt like when he went in the game MSU came after him hard and IMO it showed.

    2. 3rd down was not good for the defense. Yes they were holding our DL but I thought we were not aggressive enough on 3rd down. We started brining the heat late in the game and we found success.

    3. This OL is something man. They are a nasty bunch that doesn't care if the box is loaded. They took their lumps in the 1st quarter but they flat out broke the 2nd best DL in the big ten last night. That said we really need to work on our pass pro because IMO we give up too much pressure and sacks.

    4. The offense ruined themselves a ton last night. Big penalties, dropping wide open down field throws, and an ultra conservative game plan for the last 1.5 quarters saved the Spartans. We Should have had at least another 6-14 points.

    5. Anyone saying Fields wasn't sharp needs a reality check. Yes he missed a wide open TE early but he still went for 68% 2 TDs and over 200 passing. Until anyone can stop our running game Fields will never approach 250 yards throwing. Both Day/Fields took the blame for his INT but IMO that was on Hill. Go back and watch because Hill had his head turned in the wrong direction. If hill saw the football he runs under that for a dime throw. If Victor catches that ball you are looking at 72% for 250 yards. That's a hell of a line against a defense like that.

    6. Defense needs to work on the over the middle stuff because that finally looked like the first vulnerability I've seen in this defense.

    It was a weird game in that we could've won a lot worse without some mistakes but at the same time it could've been a lot close had they made some plays. The team gets a bye week at the perfect time because that's not easy to play back to back games like we just did. A good win that gave our offense a fantastic idea of what to expect from Wisky/PED. Can't be greedy though because all in all we are 6 and 0.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Sorry if it's already posted, but the game thread on MSU's 247 site is pretty awesome. It's almost as though Penn State fans put on some green and signed up for a different website. Penn State fans have nothing on these ref-whiners.

    Lol I just read it. OMG if OSU was called for holding against our awesome dline.... Um guys our dline is better and you weren't called for a hold at all we at least got like 2

    The guy (above) agrees with you (i.e. bukIpower) about Tuf:

    My peeve this week again is with Tuf Borland being on the field as much as he is. I love the guy. I don’t know if he’s still hurt or if he’s actually permanently injured. But he should not be on the field as much as he is, even as a captain. And I know, I KNOW…there are going to be people here in the comments about how “I’m not at all the practices and weight rooms” etc., but watch Tuf play and you’ll see it too. When you show me a game where he plays better than Browning has played, I’ll stop being peeved. Until then, it’ll continue to be Tuf to change it *rimshot*. [Editor’s note: Tuf Borland finished with 5 tackles and 1 tackle for loss. Baron Browning finished with two tackles and a sack.]
