tired wrote:We are a quarter of the way through the season and lost two starters for the season. Torrence is playing hurt. Chekwa had a back sore enough to take him out of the game. We don't know where that injury stands. Their back-ups are out indefinitely. McVey would be the back-up to Bryant, but he is out for the year, which means it looks like Nate Oliver is #2 at the Star. We all know that is not a good thing. We are running out of bodies. We are running out of options. Everyone has to step up mainly Orhian Johnson.

I don't recall seeing Sweat on the field much, if at all. Did I miss something, or did they play the whole game in nickel? In retrospect, it's a little surprising since Illinois was primarily a run-oriented offense coming in. Chances are we'll see much the same thing this week vs IU, pretty much a passing team. Then they'll probably go back to the 3-linebacker look as the "base" against Wisconsin, I'd think.

Every team has injuries...and I would suggest that Ohio State is better able to weather injuries than other teams...as Bryant is a good example...not too many teams can bring off the bench a guy who was the #2 prep cornerback in the nation last year...most teams would be starting him.Hope you're wrong on Wood, Furls. He's a RS freshman, so unlike Oliver and Gant, he hasn't been bypassed on the depth chart for years like they have. We'll see. I'll just say I've liked what I have seen of him in spring scrimmages and games. Did you guys like what you saw of O. Johnson on Saturday, or am I wearing the scarlet-tinted glasses?
