    buxfan4life The future's so bright, I've gotta wear... shades.

    Mark Staten was never at Ohio State.

    The Walrus doesn't coach the OL, he coaches TEs.

    I still can't believe we broke out an ultra-conservative, high school-level offense that somehow didn't include giving the ball to our great running back.

    I can't speak for anyone else on BP, but I, for one, was one of those who bitched up a storm when Bollman was here and who cheered when he was shown the door. And I'm still cheering.

    I hear all the talk about giving Zeke the ball, but the most inexplicable thing to me was the almost complete lack of downfield passing. Over last 3 quarters I counted exactly 4 pass attempts more than 5 yards downfield. No slants. You have first round talent and speed all over the field and you don't attempt to use it. How does that happen? One of the MSU defensive lineman even said that he told the secondary that they'd have to win the game but couldn't believe it when OSU did nothing to challenge them. Said it made things "a lot easier." It was like watching a team run its head into a brick wall all day. Worst play calling I've seen from an OSU team in decades of watching them.

    No amount of discussion is going to clear up the confusing nature of this loss.

    That being said, it's a big week and there are at least 2 games left on the schedule. Here's hoping the players and coaches are focusing on those, otherwise this season can go from a disappointment to a disaster real quick.

    They were holding back on the playcalls so scUM will keep guessing next week.

    Just wait, you'll see.

    I'm saddened by what appears to be a bad situation of eating our own young.

    Much bickering, backstabbing and scapegoating. And the players are almost as bad.

    Yeah, it was a lousy loss. And we neither will be, nor deserve to be, in the playoffs. But this was the first Buckeye loss in the past 23 freaking games.

    Cowboy up and get behind our team, Buckeye fans! They'll never need us more.

    Because Urban doesn't have the final say on the calls? He forgot about Carlos Motherfucking Hyde in '13. He forgot about Zeke.


    Every game result is absolutely about the head coach. If Urban didn't know that Zeke only got two carries in the second half, who do you blame?

    The head coach.

    Everyone has an Achilles'. Urban forgetting about the running back is his.

    Because he wasn't aware. The absolutely worst excuse I have ever heard from a head coach. Ever.

    He's supposed to save the "I wasn't aware" defense for improper benefits investigations, not playcalling in a critical game.
