Not Much was Good
The play calling was vanilla (did
they even try to run around the outside and why did you get away from the
Boeckmen / Pryor rotation), the plays were sloppy (how can a veteran team like
this have so many stupid drive killing holding and false start calls), the team
looked slow (I don’t expect Marcus Freeman to keep up with wide receiver Blake
Ayles but what was the rest of the teams excuse) and the players and coaches
panicked when they got down by a couple of scores.
OutPlayed and OutCoached
The players were outplayed and the
coaches were outcoached, I expected a loss but the Buckeyes let down their
school and their conference. Buckeye
fans better get ready for a collective “I knew you guys were soft” from the
nation as Ohio State lived down to every expectation
bestowed on them in the past two years.
