    I know coaches will say this never happened, but I wonder if late Sunday night Dabo and Saban said let’s see what tOSU is all about. Who stood out as a place to attack the MLB and a OlB and maybe the DE’s. On O they saw a juggernaut but an OL that can be confused by stunts, multiple fronts and blitzes. They know and Day and Co know so let’s see if improvements can happen through the year.

    BTN must want some viewers. I wonder who makes the final decision regarding game times. I guess I will just blame it on Warren.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    I’m not sure about any of that, but considering that I have to coach 2:00 - 6:00 PM on Saturdays, I’m good with the prime time games.

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    Zach was pretty good against the run, but he’s non-existent in pass rushing situations. Why does it take so long for him to get off the ball?

    Just saw the snap counts on 11W. He was only in on 15 plays.

    My expectations for him are sky high. Wonder if he has a boo boo.

    Hamilton county reportedly expected to go purple tomorrow and limit travel except for essential services. If Franklin county goes THREAT LEVEL MIDNIGHT, would OSU have any sort of travel or campus restrictions?

    Deciding which 74 players will make the trip to each road game will be a more difficult process for Ohio State this season than it’s ever been before, especially for night games like the one the Buckeyes will be playing in their first road game of the season against Penn State on Saturday.

    Because Ohio State will undergo its final round of pregame COVID-19 testing on Saturday morning after it has already arrived in State College, the Buckeyes must prepare for the possibility that any of those players could test positive before the game and be unable to play, decreasing the number of players they’ll have available for Saturday night’s game.

    That possibility, Ryan Day admitted Thursday, is “kind of terrifying.”

    “If it was a noon game, we would test here at 8:00 (the night before), and you would know before you got on the plane who had issues,” Day said. “But now that it’s a night game, we’re doing it Saturday once we’re there, so we have to make sure the depth is really accounted for.”

    Day said Ohio State needs to have “a pair and a spare at every position,” which means the Buckeyes want to have at least two players they feel good about each position along with at least one other player who can fill in at that position if necessary. While the Buckeyes would typically carry that many players on its travel roster at most positions anyway, they will bring more specialists on the road than they normally would, as they need to have backup kickers, punters and long snappers available just in case they lose any of their starters at those spots.

    There is no question that OSU has dominated the B1G for some time. But I got a new appreciation of that reading 11 Warriors today.

    https://www.elevenwarriors.com/skull-sessions/2020/11/117798/ohio-state-football-buckeyes-own-the-big-ten-ohio-states-offensive-tackles-dominate-and-justin-fields-almost-had-a

    For the past decade the other best teams in the B!G have been PSU, Wisky and Michigan. Beginning in 2012 OSUs record against those teams has been 23-1.

    In 2016 we went to Happy Valley and took a 14 point lead into the 4th quarter. PSU scored 17 unanswered, including a blocked field goal return of 60 yards with 4 minutes left, to win by 3.

    Not suggesting that they didn't deserve that win. Clearly they did. But it took a white out, a 17 point fourth quarter and a 60 yard blocked kick return to beat us. Our only loss to the top three in 9 years - and that is what it took.

    And those wins were largely with a Meyer system that was less multi-dimensional and becoming relatively antiquated and several less than desirable defensive systems. The outpacing of the rest of the conference is only accelerating from here.

    Yeah exactly... I don't see Day becoming less aggressive because it's a tight game. In fact the opposite really. Everytime PED scores we answered.

    We're bringing in better/different talent because of the system now.
