    Some interesting comments from the coach. Here's a few excerpts. The entire thing can be viewed at www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com





    Coach gets a little testy:

    While I appreciate Tressel again pointing to the execution issue, the fact remains that many of the plays are predictable. If many watching at home can predict where the play is going or what the play is, and I use my wife as a good example, I am confident that the DC's who get paid decent money to do this have a fairly easy time of it. It is really hard to execute when the other team knows what it is that you are trying to execute.

    I couldn't agree with you more. This is the biggest complaint I've had with Tressel's offense. Defenses do know what he's doing, but Tressel always drives home the execution as the reason for things going wrong. You gotta give your offense some element of surprise, because each linemen can only "execute" so many blocks on each play (one block at at time). I love ya Tressel but it's time to stop being so ordinary on offense. Execution isn't the only problem.

    I don't post much here, but I'll throw my 2 cents in. I'll agree that we are very predictable on offense and given the results that's obviously not a good thing. On the other hand, tOSU has always been somewhat predictable yet still had the athletes/power to get it done. When it's 1st and goal from the 5 everyone in the stadium and at home should know that we are going to run the ball at least 2 out of 3 times and they should expect that we are going to get 6 points from it. My point is that, while being predictable is a problem, it's not the only problem. The OLine and backs simply are not getting the job done.

    This quote from Woody pretty much sums it up in my opinion:

    "I've had smarter people around me all my life, but I haven't run into one yet that can outwork me. And if they can't outwork you, then smarts aren't going to do them much good. That's just the way it is. And if you believe that and live by it, you'd be surprised at how much fun you can have."

    Sure the D. Coordinator might be smart enough to figure out what we are going to do. We just aren't outworking them to get the job done.

    I'll shut up and go back to lurking now!
