I'm not sure the offense or quarterbacks practiced at all between KSU and today. Embarrassing.
Our offense with the new OC cannot possibly any worse.
I though the O-line played decent. Rutgers brought either brought more people or brought blitzes from the outside and our quarterbacks and coordinator were baffled what to do next. Is it just me or does Jantz put a whole lot of air under his throws? It's hard to tell on television but they take forever to get anywhere. Actually, Barnett played decent and we won the first quarter 6-0 so I'm going to assume he got hurt on that blitz and fumble.
My question is if Sam Richardson is a decent passer will we go with a possible two QB system. I thought that Paul is generally against that but I can't see keeping Barnett off the field that much but we'll have to find someone that can throw the ball.
I am so Proud of Tom
Ohio State hires Iowa State's Tom Herman as new offensive coordinator and QB coach | cleveland.com
First article I googled, not sure where you've been for the past couple weeks, unless something happened recently to change that.
Anyway, not going to miss him. I understand the talent problems and the QBs struggling today, but he was severely outcoached. Did anyone else notice Rutgers audible their defense everytime we audibled? Then they make a TFL. It wouldn't be so bad if almost every drive wasn't exactly the same:
1st: Run up the middle
2nd: Run up the middle/short pass tot he sidelines
3rd(and long): Try and gain 8-10 yards in the face of a blitz, with a QB/OL who aren't picking it up
cyclones lost a game. wahhhhhhhhhhh fire everyone!!! wahhhhhhhh. babies.
Headline.: Tom lays a bomb. Cyclones go kaboom!
Needed to run more slants and screens, and we didn't do it until it was too late.
That was perhaps the most inept offensive game I have ever seen in a bowl game in 30+ years as a football fan, from playcalling to execution.
I have tried to hold my tongue about Herman, but at this point my feeling is this:
Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.
He may be a genius, but his offense sure plays DUMB.
It is easy to say, but we just don't score enough points. You have to think your offense can score more than 28 against Baylor who has one of the worst defenses I have ever seen and more than 13 against a really really average Rutgers defense.
I don't understand why he was allowed to coach the bowl game.
