    Two things that are very frustrating right now. The defense playing soft coverage and the offensive run game. We MUST clean those two areas up. Unfortunately, during the season, especially with no bye week, that’s very tough to do.

    The thing that makes me feel a little better, there’s not a team in America that’s not struggling on defense. That tells me that with the weird off-season, offenses are just way ahead of defenses. See Bama, Clemson, and UGA.

    We may just have to outscore teams, which we can do! But if we don’t establish a consistent run game, that’ll be a tough chore against a team like Bama.

    I’m not worried about the final score. Rutgers was pulling out every trick in the book. And it felt like Day was keeping the play calling very conservative. We are fine. Enjoy watching Fields! He’s easily the best QB in Ohio State history!

    Agree on the soft coverage. I think that was the game plan, as they rarely played man to man last night. Regardless, our coverage outside the hashes was terrible regardless of who was on the field and I believe Shawn Wade is not playing hard. The film does not lie. I saw him come up on a running play in the second half and give minimal effort to actually making a tackle and the TD he gave up was another example of the other guy wanting it more. I have SERIOUS concerns.

    The run game to me seems like a combination of backs missing the whole due to a lack of vision or ability and also at times the o-line having some breakdowns.

    Let's face it, there is not a JK on this roster this year. They are what they are. However, they are more than capable of being effective with the combination of this passing game. We may need to utilize our backs in the short passing game which is basically a running play.
