26-6 looks pretty nice. A classic old Tressel score

Probably my favorite game they’ve played so far this year.

It was a bit of nostalgia but I wasn't that impressed. Haskins played poorly, the OL struggled all day to pass or run block, and the defense was playing a bad offense, so I can't even say they've definitively improved. Next week is Maryland so we're not likely to give much insight there, either.

Weber has moved ahead of Dobbins in my book, and Martell needs more redzone looks. That's about all I took away from it.

It was a more complete victory than they’ve had against any decent opponent this year. I think it’s about the best they can do with the offensive line they’ve got

Neopolitan is an unknown quantity at this point
I would agree that it's tough to take away much from the defensive performance considering how incompetent MSU looked on offense, and the fact such a large % of drives started inside the 5. But like Bluth said, the defensive backfield looked significantly better.

Most enticing thing was the idea of using Martell in some sort of Tebow like role. Obviously he's not as good as Tebow, but on the other hand Haskins is far better than Chris Leak. Could add a new dimension to the offense, and at the very least Michigan now has something extra to spend time preparing for.

Exactly what came to my mind after watching them run twice in a row.

I tend to agree. If the offense can consistently get 120+ yards per game on the ground, and average ~3 yards per carry, that's going to have to be good enough to free up the passing game.

They were going against the number 1 rush D in the country and had a 100 yard back.

Given the struggles in the run game this year that's something at least.

For now, Mike Weber needs more touches than Dobbins.

Agreed. What I don't get is why they're so desperate to use the run set up the pass when the talent is clearly geared toward the reverse. They run legitimately 6 maybe 7 deep at WR and have a QB who is extremely accurate. They should be throwing the ball like they're Texas Tech then hitting teams with Dobbins and Weber.

But the run shortens the game and keeps their defense off the field.

Also it appears Urban's favorite antagonist, Brett McMurphy, is back at it now claiming Urban hid racist rants from Zach Smith: https://watchstadium.com/news/the-se...da-11-13-2018/

A hour later the tOSU WRs and others refute this column: https://247sports.com/Article/Ohio-S...ell-124674606/

Former player Joshua Perry later responded by saying, "Never in my life have I heard ANY @OhioStateFB coach use a racial slur, and there is NO CHANCE Coach Meyer would ever allow that. You're trying to kill Urban's career and I'm not here for it."


First it was Mike Bianchi and his Urban Liar rants in the Orlando Sentinel and now this guy, Urban must really be good at getting under folks skin.

Yep, I was 100% a Dobbins guy after last year but he hasn’t been good this year even when the holes are there (which isn’t often). I do think with a typical dominant OSU o-line that he’d probably still be the better option

Hope the young QB gets some playing time this week because I think they will need him against the Ugly Blue.

There is some chatter that Haskins is coming back next year to get some better tape for the NFL and if that is the case Martel might be gonzo as the thinking is that Urban will let Day really take over the Offense and the days of the running QB at tOSU may be over. Not sure how accurate this is but it certainly is plausible.

We've seen the future for Martel. He is Tim Tebow II. He'll get his touches when it is a better running situation just like Tebow did.

Anyone think that the Buckeyes still have a chance at making it to the playoff if they win out and have some outside help?

Yes, but they need to play a whole lot better.

If they win out I’d put their odds of making the playoff at about 55%

If Georgia, Clemson, and ND all win out I think tOSU chances are zero.
Bama needs to win out. Otherwise tOSU will be about the last 1-loss team considered. The committee isn't going to forget the ugliness of the Clemson, Iowa, or Purdue losses any time soon.
If tOSU doesn't win out there is absolutely no scenario that gets them in.

Terrible.

Looks like last week's defensive effort had more to do with MSU's lack of offense than anything else.

I have a new strategy for DraftKings college football. Just pick low salary players that are going against the Buckeyes. I can understand a bad game every now and then but this defense has been gashed for big plays game after game this year.

McFarland goes into game with under 600yds, has 155 in three carries. Any fan would have to laugh. OSU making McFarland look like Eric Dickerson's better brother.
