This is no bueno. 

 

 

Oh I missed this... I agree we don’t want him hobbled and think he’s primed for a big year BUT they have depth at the position. Tyreke Smith is a freak.

Do you even know me? I’m always in the fetal position.

Get a grip, mister!  Do we need someone to go General George S. Patton on you?!  Besides, we count on you for updates...😁

Sadly, yes. 2018 Buckeye defense put me in a body bag.

Looking forward to some cooler weather to ride my bike down the Olentangy Trail, park at the bike corral (small donation), partake in some tailgating, leave early, stop at Lineage Brewing on the way home, get home while others are still jacking around with traffic.

i know tOSU's O hasn't gotten it's act together fully for many weeks in some seasons, but c'mon, 5-0 throwing their helmets on the field...

 

nice that FOX has grabbed THE GAME, won't be on BTN like Michigan's opener on Saturday night

I have serious concerns about Cincinnati and Nebraska before MSU.

there won't be any sympathy if they don't start 5-0

Martell wasn’t their best option at QB, no doubt. I’m excited about Fields but he’s raw and inexperienced, and expectations should be tempered. He does have a great supporting cast but again, many of them are new to the starting lineup. They look talented but a little sloppy on offense today, which isn’t unexpected for the first game.

Came out hot with three TDs in the first six minutes. Fields looked great early. Dobbins ran hard - sick stiff arm on one play in particular. McCall ripped a 37 yd punt return and picked up yards as backup RB. It was fun as hell to finally see Victor and Olave featured at WR. Then FAU started making some adjustments, the pass protection started looking iffy, Fields got hit hard a few times and made some rookie decisions with the ball, a couple of fumbles, and all of a sudden the Bucks went nine series in a row without a score. 

 

Meanwhile, in the second half Kiffin started attacking the seams in the zone with his tight ends (as Harbaugh likes to do), and it worked. On one play in particular Wint tried to defend a pass without turning around, giving me nightmares about 2018, and all of a sudden this blowout celebration wasn’t as much fun for me as it should have been.  

 

Talent won out in the end.  Run blocking looks solid, Fields grinded out tough yards in the second half, Mack made a sick leaping catch on a big play, and today Jeremy Ruckert looked like he may live up to the Gronk-level hype. Teague got good experience in the 4th quarter. But, it’s not hard to imagine how this game would have played out against a good team. 

 

On D, Young and Okudah looked as good as advertised. It was mentioned that Young added 20 pounds of muscle this offseason?! Thanks Chase and Coach Mick. Malik Harrison looked good to me, too. 

 

My nemesis Luck Fickell on deck with a Cincinnati team full of a kids who dreamed of  one day playing for the Buckeyes. Yikes.

Didnt stay for the entire game, but my quick view on the first half was that OSU showed who was boss in the first quarter.  FAU losing its starting tailback on the second series didn't help.  The foot came off the gas in the second quarter as the game was in hand.  The entent of the game from that point forward for OSU was to get Fields game time action without showing the entire playbook.

That makes sense.  Tough to draw conclusions after Game 1 against an opponent like that, although I'm very happy overall with how Fields looked -- which is the most important thing.

They started shuffling around on the OL too and it showed - especially josh alibi for Thayer Munford
