Most amazing tOSU stat of the year

Unread postby furls » Sun Oct 07, 2012 12:50 am

Through 6 wins, the Buckeyes have scored 22 TDs and only attempted 2 FGs. That is freaking crazy.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Might be the biggest indication that it IS a new era at OSU.

Meyer even called out Stoneburner this week, saying he has just played "OK"

My teenagers were joking that under Tressel those numbers would have been reversed: 22 FGs to 2 TDs, sadly they are not far off.

I went to the enfuriating tOSU vs. Texas game in '05. If tOSU scores TDs they win the game, instead they kicked 5 FGs and scored 1 TD. You cannot beat good teams like that, you have to score TDs in the red zone. Meyer and Herman score TDs in the redzone.

Hamby's drop was just one play. The team and staff squandered so many opportunities in that game.

I was at that Texas game. God. We should've won that in so many ways. The Hamby drop, the VY 4th down, playing Zwick... I was swearing up a storm walking back to my place (still in full OSUMB uniform). Not setting the best example after that one.

But it is an amazing stat. Especially since Basil has range to 50 yards, easy. They aren't just not getting stopped in the red zone, once this offense goes, it goes all the way. Truly, I either expect a three-and-out, TD, or turnover.

The scary thing is that these guys really aren't that good at running this O. Once Miller can actually make all his reads (whether it is the option or the passing game) this team will drop 50-60 consistently on the B1G middle of the pack and below.

Next year the O will be ridiculous.... the D, well, I am worried about that, but let's not think about that side of the ball.

Seems like the D is consistently under performing, too. I can't wait to see this team with another year in the system......absolute wrecking balls.

That's why I think 2014 will be the year. Offense should be firing by next year, but we'll need another year to work in the young talent on D.

As for the stat, I was yelling at Nesler Saturday when he was talking about Basil's range, saying his long on the year was only 20-some yards. Yeah, because he's only attempted TWO FIELD GOALS!

This is my favorite develoment on the field this year. Our O tries to score a TD everytime they're on the field, which is of course, kind of the point.

The refreshing aggressiveness of Meyer translates to other areas of the game as well...especially special teams. His punt block team has one already, and I suspect a few more will follow. I loved the fake punt (down a TD at his own 25, no less) even though it failed. The play was obviously well-conceived and would have worked like a charm if Storm Klein doesn't just flat out miss his block. No matter...if Jim Tressel was watching he probably threw up at that moment.
