High Buckeye Offense Expectations?

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Taosman, Mar 6, 2005.

    BucksinFL Buckeye fan for life.....

    Had he stayed at reciever, he would not have been taken in the first round. CK had alot to do with an anemic offense as well.

    I'm making sure not to expect OSU to lead the nation in offense, and the fact is, we don't have to do that with our defense. I do, however, expect something better than 90th or 105th in the nation. We can't rely entirely on punting and field goals.

    If we're in the Top 40/50 on offense AND in red zone scoring, we'll be kicking some ass as a team.

    Must get to 40th

    OSU needs to go from ~90th offense to about 40th. That ought to do it.

    Exactly. In fact, if he had stayed at WR, he would've been luck to have even been drafted. Regardless of mistribuck's love affair with Gamble, CG was a decent-at-best WR.

    NC State? (OSU was 7, NCSU was not)
    .......................................... OSU.....NCSU
    NET YARDS RUSHING.............64.......157
    NET YARDS PASSING.............73.........99

    that was 04 (22-14 OSU)...

    03 - (Double OT (44-38 OSU))
    RUSHES-YARDS (NET)............30-21...32-44
    PASSING YDS (NET)................315........273

    I don't disagree with your point, BFS, just pointing out a bad example.

    With our offense, you are exactly right. He would have never gotten the ball. Better chance to display his gamebreaking skills on defense.

    All you guys rooting for us to ACHIEVE #40 offensively is truly sad. If that is our GOAL, we have a long way to go...

    Number 40. Why did 60 other teams just drop from D1?[​IMG]

    The OL will be productive and the offense will follow.

    Gamble was our #2 WR in 2002, even after his switch to full-time corner, so he had plenty of chances. I remember him dropping quite a few balls as a receiver, and several interceptions at corner. He was, and is, and great athlete, but his catching skills weren't exactly world-class. So, our offense really wasn't the reason for his non-production as a receriver.

    Gamble was a Cooper style player!

    Got to agree 100% with Mili on Gamble......Geez, did I actually say that? Gamble was a Cooper like player, great talent, mixed performance. Disappointing last year. Was thinking about his money too much.

    Isn't there a perception that even with a powerful offense, JT won't run up the score? He's got too much class.

    Ah, then, correct you are. Manhandled them. Say what you want about the way Mo C's career ended up, but man was he awesome in that game.
