    I tell you what some of our fans are sick, the things I'm reading tweeted to players makes me vomit, I'm not happy about game but I would never attack a player on twitter for playing hard, everyone makes mistakes And if anyone on here are those people I hope u leave this board

    Did anyone notice going into commercial breaks ESPN chose to play Katy Perry's "Roar"? Now as a football fan did they really think their audience was sitting back thinking "this is awesome, and it really captures the moment".

    The thing for me that is so hard to stomach is I can't thinks of many Ohio State defenses that has had more talented players. The problem is, talented players do nothing for you when they are not put in position to succeed.

    I think Urban knows that. He knoes what a talented defense looks like and I think he knows that Ohio State had some very good players. Scheme and player developement on that side of the ball left a whole lot to be desired! A LOT!!!!!!

    Still pissed off about that...

    To me, it's in the Hamby catagory...

    I'll never forget it...

    It's a shame too because it was his last game as a Buckeye and he had 8 catches for 116 yards, but we won't remember that..

    As soon as that happened, I told my wife that it was over...And truely believed it.

    We had so much momentum at that time, I have not doubt that we would have went up 36-20. No doubt! Their defense was tired and Carlos had them on their heels. Had them right where we wanted them.

    The second biggest mistake of the night was when we were driving the ball and Braxton made the wrong read on 3rd and a foot. Pulled the ball from Hyde and lost three yards. That killed us!

    Yea, that play was stupid stupid...

    I believe that Hyde had ran it 5 straight tuimes before that too, picking up about 4 yards on every carry...

    Yes, had their defense on its heels. Braxton made a lot of mental errors last night. I know he is super talented, but they always say, "take what the defense gives you." They were giving us 4 and 5 yards to Hyde...

    i think after last night no one should leave early. I think both Miller and Shazier looked lost at times last night.

    I got up this morning feeling like we are not that far off from getting back to the title game.......

    Changes will need to be made to the following areas:

    1. Defensive staff/Scheme (Priority #1)

    2a. Rebuild offensive line.

    2b. Quarterback (Even if Miller returns, the passing game needs to vastly improve)

    3. Secondary


    I was encouraged by the play of some of the young pups.

    My thoughts on the game:

    They kept saying before the game that Ohio State's best pass rusher would be out, and I'm like, "Did something happen to Bosa too?"

    I have to say... I was aggravated and frustrated with our Defense. They are awful. The worst D I've ever seen at Ohio State

    but this one is as much on the offense for all the times the D actually stepped up and made big plays to get the ball back to the Offense and they did nothing with it? Exhibit A: The Von Bell interception (first of his career, I believe)... Offense responds with a 3 and out. Exhibit B: Freaking throwing the ball away after Barnett gives us a chance to win. I will have a hard time getting over that. Unbelievable.

    This offense is better than the defense for sure. They have much more talent and have played better all year long, including in the bowl game last night.
    But the way they can just pick the worst possible times to go absolutely cold and have entire quarters where they are not clicking at all is so frustrating. They have too much talent and potential to 3 and out.... ever... They should have been able to put up 50 last night. Really.

    And yeah. I know.... We shouldn't need 50 to win a game, ever. So the d isn't off the hook. But for this defense, given their body of work, I think they played at least halfway decently well enough to earn a C+. They did a lot of bending, but they came up with some big plays in big spots too.

    And Philly...... If he doesn't muff that punt, and our Offense scores, that's a 3 score lead..... just... wow...

    I honestly thought I was watching the late 90's Bengals there for a bit... so much Bungling...

    First time in the history of OSU football that they lost a game when scoring 35 points...

    I forget the exact number, but it was something like 285-0...

    That says it all about the defense right there...

    We need major improvements to have any shot at a NC...the formula has changed now. You need two top 4 wins at the end of the season. A crappy D with a great offense can get a fluke win, but not against top 5 teams. I knew we were in big trouble after the Michig*n game. Lets get the back 7 on defense straightened out.

    Yes, because I don’t see any reason for them to have been in Tampa...
