    No one’s saying 2014 didn’t have issues. I’m saying they weren’t the absolute shit show 2021 has been so far.

    2014 had a few issues vs the run here and there but there was never this glaring issue such as 2018, 2020 and now 2021.

    During the "good" stretch for this team:

    Langford went for 137 and almost 8 ypc. It just didn't matter because Barrett had one of the greatest QB performances in OSU history (before that date).
    Cobb had 145 and 3 tds.
    Coleman went for 228 8 ypc & 8 ypc.
    Drake Johnson went for under 80 yds 5 ypc and 2 tds.
    they stopped Gordon
    they didn't stop Henry, Joey did.
    - 13 car 95 yds 7.3 ypc 1 td
    they stopped Oregon, but they weren't built for the big stage upfront. They just lucked out in playing Jameis first. Derrick Henry may have run for 400 yds if the seeding was different.

    You don't even need film. Just Google "how to beat single high" since that's what we're gonna play no matter what.

    Probably Google how to beat Combs defenses? 47 pages of content.

    Alabama would argue 52 but your point is valid.

    I tried it Adam Sandler to Cardale to William T Sherman had ways to beat Combs defense.

    I think one could squeeze “run left” on less than 47 pages.

    If you’re talking about switching coaching responsibilities and/or making major changes to schemes in-season, then the monkey’s already in the banana patch. Maybe it slows down the bleeding some, but you’re still going to have issues. The offense is going to have to be perfect against any good offense they play.

    I don’t blame Day for giving Coombs another year. 2020 was a mulligan for just about everybody. But, I’m glad to see he looks like he’s going to make some changes. It is very clear whatever the hell it is they’re doing is broken. It sucks, because like I said elsewhere, I love me some Kerry Coombs; but the man is not working as a DC.

    Fortunately there's maybe 1 defense that can maybe get some stops against our offense in PED. The offense is going to have to score 40+ every big ten match to make sure.

    my concern is that they vowed to make changes in the pressers immediately following the ‘20 Natty vs. Bama. They then had an entire offseason to re-evaluate and strategize. The result? Absolutely no change. In fact, it seems things only worsened amidst the loss of so many experienced players. I so desperately want to have faith that it will be different, as it feels that the urgency has attained new heights. This, after I did not think they could get any more significant. I suppose now their backs are against the wall, but like…how could they have let it get this bad after all of that? Ugh it just feels like sheer stubbornness but perhaps this has revealed the sad reality that there is some incompetence sprinkled in as well. Sigh

    Not sure what exactly was said after Bama, but this is different. Day sounds like he's about to throw Coombs into Mt. Doom.

    Even if the defense makes some improvements, I'll be surprised if Coombs is here next year. Unless he'd accept a symbolic CO-DC title and really just coach CBs.

    Maybe the defense has always been meh, but we had a Bosa or Chase Young to cover it up.
