Okay Buckeyes, Now That We Know Whats Wrong...

BG BrewContributor ISeptember 20, 2009

Okay Buckeyes, even though you played against one of the worst defenses in the nation, Toledo does have a potent offense and you actually showed up.  I believe a couple of things were made apparent with Saturday's victory. First, the defense is good.  The adjustments made after the Navy game were excellent...hint, # 7.  They played outstanding against the USC and the pulled  a shut out against a team that just hung 80+ points the previous two weeks.  The second thing I noticed is that the Buckeyes really don't have a running game without having designed running plays called for Pryor.  As I said in a previous article, he's the best running back on OSU's team.  I believe the O-line is young and not that good but with tons of potential.  We'll see next week.  Boom Herron does seem to run better every week but I still think that Tressel doesn't really know how to use Sain. He isn't effective when he carries the ball but is very good receiving the ball out of the backfield. 

Now, after watching the USC defeat and thinking that we'd be in the Top 5 if we hadn't loss, I have faith that the season will be very entertaining.  For the Buckeye "To Do" list, priority one is the development of Terrelle Pryor.  This game showed his potential and his problems.  I believe he's trying to get away with things he did in HS, that obviously won't work. Work with TP, film study, mechanics, etc... nonstop. Because understand this he will be a four year player. He will not be ready to leave next year, so help him to help the team and prepare him for a whole different level of play.  Lets go coach!!! You know whats wrong now, so get in there and fix it.
