    Now that i finally come to grips with that debacle~~~~

    it ain't so bad,at least we don't have to be subjected to the beating that the 'Seminoles' would inflict on us,the line would be FSU by 14/17 and would cover easily.I'm still pissed about the dam coaches,u no who I mean,get the axe out now.:cry:

    I have not read everyone's posts after the loss.......

    Just getting over it after 2 days........

    They played hard but made more than a few mistakes.......

    Their is blame to go around the staff and players however I am extremely proud of this team and coaches.......

    We are back where we should be.......now lets fix the defense and up our level of recruiting and we will be back to winning championships.

    You're right about the mistakes. Two penalties stand out to me the most. Doran Grant and Ryan Shazier's bone-headed pass interefance on 3rd down. We have momentum trnding towards us and those two plays cost us 10 points.

    Serious question OBJ how much higher of level of recruiting can we go?

    We have had great classes recruited in the secondary and none of these kids have made a impact yet and it seems thats our weak link on the field....

    We haven't recruited elite linebackers or wide receivers in my opinion in the past few classes.......

    We recruited some good prospects but we have lost out on more than a few elite, elite guys at these 2 positions.....

    In the secondary, we recruited some elite guys in last years class.......

    The previous 2 classes were just ok in my opinion........

    To get back to winning titles, we need to recruit better. Bama is not having this problem.

    They have 2 or 3 guys at these spots who are guys who make plays.

    If you would have told me that we'd rush for that many yards and have that many TFL's and lost, I'd think you were crazy!

    Those #'s should have won us ths game, easily!

    With that said how important is this bowl game recruiting wise? After watching us get out-coached and out-preformed I'm still at a loss on what kind of team we are.

    So many questions....

    Where's the tight ends we hyped all preseason?
    Why does everything have to be down the field or behind the line of scrimmage; do we have no faith Braxton can throw a 5-15 yard pass?
    Why no screen pass to Wilson or Hall?

    Why does Fickell still have the DC job?

    I wouldn't say we got out coached.

    I would say our corners and wide receivers did not make plays when needed....

    Anytime you lose a game, fans always talk about what ifs.

    Would we have gotten the first down giving the ball to Hyde on 2 plays?

    It wouldn't have mattered if Spencer holds on to the ball or Brown makes a play on a deep pass.

    Maybe they don't score so many points if our corners could cover.

    Recruit better players. The staff is very good (minus Fickell), could be better.

    Our defense wasn't ready for there offense and our offense wasn't ready for there defense so I feel we were out coached.

    Our defense has been poor all year......

    Our offense played fine. Well enough to win. Could have made a few more plays but going up against the a great defense, I feel they did enough to win.

    The defense once again is the reason we lost.

    18 carries for Hyde is an absolute failure of the coaching staff.

    One thing I will never accept is not giving Carlos the ball with a 4th and 1 and our offensive line. You had Archie Griffin at the buckeye bash singling out Carlos Hyde as one of the greatest HB's in Ohio State history and we don't trust him in that situation???

    MSU had been shutting down everything into the flat all night long and that was the play call to run out there giving them even more time to get to the edge? Braxton is shifty but not a power runner like TP who could put his shoulder down to get that extra half a yard. If you had 5 plays you liked to choose from, I'm sorry this would have been my last choice just by how the game was going and how MSU was covering on that night.

    I think offense should get an equal amount of blame to be honest....no scoring for the last 20 minutes absolutely killed us.

    I know we had so much momentum going in our direction. MSU fans were just sitting back in their chairs at that point with the "here we go again" look on their faces...so frustrating.

    1 first down and a FG would've put us up 27-20 and kept the overwhelming momentum on our side...

    Huge 3&out by Sparty's D...that's what great defenses do...

    I have to admit, their defense was better than I expected...

    They gang tackled and seemed fundamentally sound on damn near every play...


    I agree with Block "O"s opine on the 4th and short play call. Ideally you could close your eyes and pick any pay in the book and if it's executed you should gain positive yards. Theyre all designed to gain positive yardage.But in this case, you have to play the odds.

    Hyde had only 1 carry all year that went for negative yardage, and only 1 fumble. Give him the ball on 3rd and 4th and win the game...


    I also agree with Obie. I didn't read any posts from kickoff until this morning regarding the game.. I'm just now starting to get over the loss a little. Yesterday was a terrible Sunday.
