2021 tOSU Defense

    When you give up 31 and 35 points in the 2 games, there really aren't many bright spots on the defensive side. However, on defense probably YES, compared to last season and the DL and LBs so far this season. Or at least we can say the DBs have been less disappointing than the DL and LBs have been.

    I'd argue that the DL is the main let down. Yes the LBs look like the 3 stooges running around out there while running into each other but this DL was supposed to change the LOS which they most definitely aren't. The DL isn't getting any pressure and while the DTs appear to be doing okay getting into the backfield to me teams are sort of inviting that because they're trapping them.

    I think we have got to see 33 and 44 more. At a minimum just to give them an opportunity to make plays since our starting 4 aren't.

    Or maybe the DBs just look better because the opponents haven't really needed to pass much yet? :lol:

    Good analysis of many of the defensive issues in this piece by Ross Fulton.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    To put it simply, we've become Oklahoma, a pinball offense but Charmin soft defense. It's unacceptable, and it's heartening to see that Day has had enough.

    My goodness how easy it was all game for them. Personally I think they packed it in too and could've done more damage.
