So many big plays for the Buckeyes
People praising OSU's QB and his initial performance must have watched a different game. The guy is playing with ridiculous talent and looked very average. Look at all of his TD throws--they were to people who had at least 5 yards on their defender. Anything that needed to be a tight throw was way off, including his INT. I agree that they will dominate some teams with the talent surrounding him, but they are going to have a lot of high scoring close games too. Definitely nowhere near a national title contender IMO with that average defense.Yeah, they have weapons, weapons, and more weapons. Seriously talented RBs and WRs. They look a bit vulnerable on defense though. I think part of that is the game plan Minney ran --they had good play calling and opened up the field about as well as could be expected.
tOSU reminded me yesterday of a couple recent Oklahoma teams. Ridiculous offense, but so-so defense. I suppose even that's not a great comparison because the QB is unproven. They have a long way to go but it's early. They are going to blow a lot of teams out with their offensive talent.

That sucks. He was fun to watch. Wish him the best with his recovery.Mo done for year. Sucks for him, big part of that offense. Will be have to be RBBC.
As Illinois fans, I think some of us have become "spoiled" seeing young QBs come in and light up Lovie's defense. They would rarely miss. Mertz last year, the UConn QB the year before...It was his very first collegiate game, and his team's first game of the season. He had some solid throws in the second half. You're going to see a lot of QBs miss throws this early in the season, especially the new ones.
