Yep I do understand,I have always believed that in sports the games get harder toward the end of a season and defense wins championships.I kinda knew from what OSU did in 2012 and what they was showing early in the 2013 season that they was in trouble.Fantastic offense I mean really they put up 270 yards of rushing on Sparty.The Buckeyes just did not have the defense to take them to the promise land.OSU was a top 10 defense against the run and ranked 109th in pass defense.Every team they played went after that weakness.Meyer knows this has to be fixed,I think part of the problem was talent in the secondary I really don't think they was that good another is the coaches.But regardless I believe that when OSU starts playing elite on the D side of the ball is when they will have a real tangable shot a being a contender on a national stage against a top 5 team.Its kinda like a basketball team that has a great 3 point shooter they make it to the championship game and he goes cold and they go down in smoke or a baseball team loaded with sluggers but don't have a shut down pitcher.If you meet a team that's good enuf to slow you down than you have to counter that bye slowing them down to and than you have a chance.OSU has gotten eatin alive with passing QB's for 3 years now and everyone is passing on them.Its hard to watch but if I was a coach and had to play OSU I would pass on the all day long.I think Meyer gets this fixed.
So Chuck how is everything doing?its football season again,i just love the college games looks like bama is still the team to beat,meyer seems to be doing good but the Bucks still have the same issues on the field.This is a good time of the year to think about joining a good "fun type" team at the bowling alley.Hope all is well call that brother you have i would if i could.Have a nice fall and enjoy the peices on BR there fun to read
Thanks for the comment Chuck.
