    Here we go. Let’s keep the scoring average, the total yards, the average yards per play;

    but let’s also be able to convert on 3rd and 1 with standard running plays!

    Riiiight. What a silly idea. Who would ever throw to a tight end?

    Who's going to play tight end?
    Will Stover move back? Or are we counting on Scott and Rossi?
    Can Scott block? Why do I have so many questions for a potent offense with so many returning players?

    Column: Can the Ohio State win big without a big-time run game?

    So, what can we expect next year? Oh, I think that Day liked what he saw from the wide-open, Stroud-led passing attack. He’s so cool, so accurate. The 2022 Bucks will be a passing team. The line (three of the starters back?) will pass block. The Buckeyes will throw long passes on 4th and one. Stroud, and JSN, and (maybe) Harrison will make All America teams. Henderson, and Williams, and (maybe) Emeka Egbuka on end arounds will keep foes off balance. They’ll be tough to stop.

    Will they win it all? That depends not on the pass/run ratio but on what Jim Knowles can do with the Buckeye defense. It’s OK to put the ball in the air.

    I think the Stud firing is Day's answer to this question but what caused the 4 games where teams held the OSU offense under 30?

    You get that understood and mitigated then the '22 offense can be as good as any we have seen. The skill talent is absurd.

    IMO the annual tight end concerns are simply us finding something to complain about. I can't think of a time that lack of TE use has cost us a game or productivity. Their support in the run game is obviously beneficial, but our passing attack can only get incrementally better, and frankly I don't give a shit which position get's the target as long as it moves the offense. Some teams prioritize the position; mostly out of need (Iowa certainly can't staff an aerial attack like ours). Seeing Mitch Rossi play the FB/TE hybrid had me excited in the Rose Bowl and Ruckert made some amazing plays during his time. But absolutely no reason to force play towards a position under our scheme.

    To add, despite the lack of use, tOSU consistently (if perhaps infrequently) puts solid TE's into the NFL.

    We live and die by our WR ..the TE is a last read. Unless it’s in the game plan based on opponent and Day calls said plays. Some teams are TE based And the WRs are secondary.

    Maybe I’m in the minority, but I think a TE is critical bc it’s so critical in the run game.

    He doesn’t need to be an elite pass catcher, but we should always have someone who is NFL talented to set edge, or be able to provide a nice counter smash. It’s been a staple at OSU since Meyer and I think it’d be shortsighted to overlook it.

    It’s not likely, but I’d be kinda excited if we moved Cormontae Hamilton back to TE and just let him blow people up.

    Couldn't find a thread for him. No one appreciates the long snapper until you have a bad one. Ours is returning.

    Fully agree about the run game. And those kind of blocks always setup that rare pass play for a TD or first down similar to what Rossi caught in the Rose Bowl.

    We should never try to get away from having them in our rotation. But lack of TE use in our passing game is sort of a constant point of complaint from Buckeye faithful and I've never understood if there's a valid reason or if it's meme status at this point.

    I know Day will sometimes put a TE # on and OL occasionally, but if there’s not really a threat to throw to the TE very often, why not just do that all the time? Imagine NPF wearing #85 and lined up next to Thayer, M. Jones, Wypler, Paris, Dawand. Load the box to stop Treveyon? Okay, air it out to Olave, JSN, or Garrett. Play a Nickel? Okay, those 6 OL + Tre will run down your throat.

    I actually thought about this when thinking about Aamil Wagner. If he never got over 300, no problem, he could be a 285 lb “TE”….just a thought

    We need blockers at TE .. move Jones to TE and play 6 OL aka Minnie and scUM. Doug France model.
