Game Thread tOSU vs. Hawaii, 12 Sep @ 3:30p ET, BTN

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    FWIW, this was correct, so thank you for that. There were a handful of games and sports-themed inflatables and lots of families/kids playing in that grassy area, so that was a fun place to be before Skull Session. St. John was packed to the rafters, and it was an all-around beautiful day on campus, so it was a great 1st Buckeye game for the little one.

    Just an observation, but it seems as though Devin Smith may have made Cardale, or maybe it just takes a season to begin hitting the receivers the way he did in the final three games. One thing is sure, both Va Tech and Hawaii defenses studied film over the break.

    C-busBuck Um... I got nothin

    One thing we can take away from this game is how well the defense played. Great game overall by the D.

    My game review (I'm going to be brief, long day):

    1) The defense had ZERO hangover. That was about as impressive as it gets. In particular from reviewing the game, Raekwon McMillan played a HELL of a game...both against the run and in pass coverage. He is really coming into his own. Bell still gets the game ball (and I mean overall, best game I have seen for him and that is saying something), but McMillan is not far behind.

    2) Gareon Conley is turning into a strength over on the boundary...the recruiting of rangy, athletic DBs is paying off tenfold.

    3) Hawaii's defense came to play. Sure, we shot ourselves in the foot a ton and executed poorly. But they dialed up some nice blitzes, set the edge well, tackled well in space, and had some good coverage. And give them a lot of credit for not giving up...they did not wear down and give up any big plays.

    4) Biggest deficiency on the OL was the interior...all around poor performance inside and particularly Price...not to pick on him because he was great down the stretch last year but those are two very bad performances in a row and if it is not rectified soon, he might get pushed for playing time from a younger pup like Knox or Jones. Boren had a pretty bad game as well. Tackles seemed to play alright though.

    5) There were some serious breakdowns on perimeter blocking...guys like Marshall, Smith, Vannett, etc. were not getting the job done.

    6) Receivers also appeared to be struggling to get open. Really struggling...Jones will roll the dice quite often and even he was not comfortable letting the ball rip on most plays.

    7) Dante Booker also got in and looked really good. Excited about him. Same goes for Damon Webb, he looked great out there. Erick Smith flashed as well. Wish we would have got to see guys like this more on Saturday.

    8) Definitely felt the effects of a short week after a primetime game...the lack of focus, mental mistakes, and lack of preparation were apparent. But hopefully we kill two birds with one stone in getting a firm win and a wakeup call. I am not really all that worried about the performance yet, just need to improve moving forward.

    muffler dragon Bien. Bien chiludo.

    @RB07OSU Doesn't Gareon play the field and Apple on the Boundary? Or did the D change the strength of the DBs this year?

    I read an article earlier this week where Hawaii was the author's upset special (am pretty sure it was Stewart Mandel). I think Hawaii was like a touchdown dog going into that game. Suffice to say, Air Force covered. :lol:

    F them for their defensive clapping this year. That's bush league bullshit.

    Maybe Mili can shed some light here-did June Jones clean up on the Samoan players? I know that a lot of Pac 12 schools do very well there, can't imagine why Hawaii couldn't as well. (I know Hawaii and American Samoa aren't exactly next door to each other)

    The kids of Samoan heritage that play for UH are almost all from Oahu, mainly from Kahuku which is up in the northeast corner of the island and of which the majority of the population is of Samoan ancestry. Kahuku is an OIA (Oahu Interscholastic Association, made up of the island's public schools) football power house. Those who are from Kahuku, but don't play there, end up at Punahou HS (ala Manti Teo), which is a private school powerhouse (@hawaiianbuckeye is a Punahou alum). Most kids who are of legit FBS talent, regardless of ethnicity, end up going to the mainland. Jones did a fairly decent job of keeping a lot of the "fair to good" local talent home...

    To give you an idea on how bad Air Force kicked the shit out of Hawaii on the Warrior's home turf:

    TOP:
    AFA 45:06
    UH 14:54

    Offense:
    AFA 576
    UH 178

    Rushing:
    AFA 496
    UH -2

    First Downs:
    AFA 32
    UH 7

    Turnovers:
    AFA 0
    UH 4

    AFA led 34-0 at halftime.
