    I would take my guess as splitting reps with JT not getting chemistry with WR's. If he was the absolute #1 from day 1 and got all first team reps I think those deep passes are better. Maybe not perfect but better than right now.

    It wasn't the prettiest, but a win is a win. And it's always great to be in The Shoe.

    As @jlb1705 pointed out, some fans are miserable no matter what the outcome is. I don't know how many times I wanted to turn around and tell the idiots behind me to shut up, when they would find something to bitch about after every play. Sky high expectations (when really, who the fuck are they?) and seemed miserable even with the win. Last I checked, these are still college kids and despite having @BUCKYLE 's Ohio super powers, they are human.

    A win is a win. 9-0 with the chance to go 10-0. LET'S GO BUCKS!!!!

    As Urban Meyer stood at the podium for his postgame press conference, the clock turned past midnight as Saturday turned into Sunday. Ohio State was still unbeaten.

    Meyer’s group was hardly impressive in its 28-14 victory over Minnesota in the hours prior — Meyer himself called the performance “sloppy” — but he wanted everybody in attendance to know where he stood following the win.

    “Best thing about 9-0?” Meyer quipped. “A chance to go 10-0 with a good bunch of people. I can’t wait to go back to work tomorrow.”

    It’s a phrase Meyer uses all the time. He constantly reminds people as long as Ohio State continues to win games, everything will be fine. There will be bumps along the way, of course, but at the end of the day a win is all that matters.

    And while that’s all true — the Buckeyes got another win Saturday night, their 22nd-straight overall — they missed a golden opportunity to make a statement to the all-seeing College Football Playoff committee.

    College football’s second-, seventh- and eighth-ranked teams all lost Saturday as LSU, Michigan State and TCU all went down. Third-ranked Ohio State didn’t lose, but also didn’t look impressive in its win.

    The Buckeyes don’t seem to care about that, though. For them, it’s all about finding a way to win.

    “As long as we get that ‘W,’ that’s all that matters,” said running back Ezekiel Elliott, who carried the ball 26 times for 114 yards and a touchdown. “The guys we’ve got on this team are just so great, they all go hard and we’re going to do all we can to win on Saturdays.”

    Actually, he has had plenty of time as the #1 to make that chemistry work. My reading, limited as my understanding is, is that Cardale remains in an intermediate stage of development. His throwing mechanics still need work (e.g., front vs back foot), he still needs to recognize defenses better in real time, etc. Perhaps you're right, but I think he still needs to hone raw talent into effectiveness in the role and tbat is why he hesitates and under/over throws.

    Just saw a clip on the news showing the band celebrating Brutus Buckeye's 50th birthday last night. They broke out the original Brutus head! (Or a replica, I'm not certain.) That was really cool.

    The game went pretty much the way I expected. The offense sputtered all night and never really got in synch. The defense started getting tired and had some mental lapses late in the game. Most likely due to being on the field more than usual. But they made plays a la Bell's pick 6 and did a good job overall of shutting down the Gopher run game.
    It is quite clear who will be the starter next week. Meyer would have probably liked another game suspension for Barrett but he needs to make sure that JT has no lingering rust going into the the last two games of the season. Hence Barrett will either start or play extensively in the Illinois game.

    Why do people keep insinuating this? The only game where Devin went off is in the B1G Championship. In the Sugar Bowl, Devin caught two (admittedly big passes) and only one in the NC game. Michael Thomas and Jalin Marshall were arguably more integral to Cardale's success than Devin was.
