"The pile-on because that was I mean that was close to being one of those fumble touchback talk year furious but it worst but I watched heartland correct him right afterwards a position he also hasn't played excellent him and Josh Meyers are the two that I watch and I'm like why they need to play better and so in even Ryan Days I agree with Ryan except they didn't rotate Josh Alabi played six naps in the game compared to brandon bow and impasse pro and allow to pressures he graded zero percent pass Bro and like I said prior to this game that has been his strong suit he's been the highest graded pastor on the offensive line and on the tight ends dolphins aligned really bounce back and the best thing I saw the the most encouraging thing as as someone who wants the Buckeyes to be successful was the tight end play and most importantly Luke Pharrell Luke Pharrell was like third highest graded offense had a big touchdown he played how he how I've been almost angrily bitching that he should be playing because he's more than capable and he finally did it and it's like that's that's what I'm looking for yeah I mean that's what you've been waiting for right I mean I've been complaining like Oh man it's time to go like you're the guy yeah and I think the other thing that it was impressive to me is they put up over three hundred yards rushing on one of the best rushing defense in the country Oh that was a huge huge huge point and and and and Jake was jk dobbins finally finally and I've been critical not critical I've been fairly evaluative of Jacob Dobbins he has had some like a handful of explosive runs that have increased inflated his numbers and I've always said he needs to be a little bit more consistent needs to be a much better pass protector and I need to see that Ezekiel Elliott that Jonathan Taylor because I've I've never seen it from him ever I saw on Saturday yeah and that's what I was going to bring up is it's interesting because statistically him and Jonathan Taylor are not that different yeah but you watch the film I know he's not Taylor but I will tell you this that the long run he had the sixty seven year run literally I watched it and I said Whoa Yeah I've known this kid I mean I watched him in on highschool film I watched him as a freshman a sophomore wash. I've watched this kid more than anyone that is talking on any podcasts or radio I've watched practices I've watched everything and I've never seen what I saw on that six seven yard run I've never seen him his increase and people are closing in and there was a breakaway speed that I'm I literally when it happens it holy shit like I it was the one that was gonna be like that's that's why he's not elite because he got tripped up because he doesn't know he he showed it and it's a testament to Mickey Mirada Testament what he had to do if he wanted to become an elite back which I think he's not you can't put them in up there with Jonathan Taylor right now people that are trying to do that not yet but I would say this literally last week when we recorded the show I would have I mean adamantly fought anyone that said he was even in the conversation he's in the conversation and I don't care what it says about that one run showed me he's in the conversation but the real story here is the defense and I'm GonNa Start the conversation about the defense off with one thing and one thing only what a pick six by Jordan fuller unreal I don't give a shit what anyone says I don't care what the stats say I don't care what the big ten refs in Jim Delany say I don't care what none of them say that was a pick six I'm not taking that away from him I mean what a bogus football right now the problem is they see an issue and they over correct it's like don't get me wrong I hold on I've coached it I've taught it pull up cut up to show you dangerous crack blocks I I was the worst offender but because it was legal and I coached my guys to be tough ass receivers we'll how do we how do we classify it how how do we detail it how do we write that narrative and it's like no no no it's real simple did he just like blind hey that's outrageous Barron's the cost that is just I don't understand it I don't understand how that is even considered illegal crack block I will never understand so just about that one call because that is the NCAA and the referee association or whatever it is at its finest it brings me to a question who had the best crack block of your guys in your time Oh man so my favorite by far because he was only because he was such a great player on defense is Marcus Allen at Penn State and it wasn't it wasn't dirty it wasn't like not looking but terry maclaurin push cracked Marcus Allen on and if anyone knows anything about my career you WanNa talk about perimeter run game then you can say what you want about me as a receiver coach and I'll fight you on it but there's one thing that no one can ever debate the best perimeter blocking receivers in the United States of America I coached him because we blocked a perimeter I'm talking like crazy like we would not be able to run the ball between the tackles but in an behind the offensive line which all they do is run block and it'd be like we'll do but Tara maclaurin push crack Marcus Allen and laid him on his locked him once the first time he did Landon Collins quipped plane and I'm telling you right now you WANNA find out watch watch the film the menace to.

"Now is something that I didn't think was possible. Both I didn't think you could be Pete Carroll and Urban Meyer. I'm saying he is Urban Carol. No you watch you watch his team play though they are extremely disciplined extremely tough extremely physical and they are having fun like it looks like players coach but they're playing a disciplinarian coach. He's nuts out there. It's insane so I wanted to throw a couple of stats etc here so when the real conversation here the offense is look good. It hasn't looked bad obviously in my opinion. They're the best team in the country right now what they're putting outing on tape not what some bias tells you rank them. I don't know how you could watch all of college football and not say this is the best team in the country because it is and people are saying now even Mark Mesa Jason. It mark may an Paul Finebaum right Paul Finebaum the SEC homer homers the two biggest Douche bags sports media both admitted it. That's how that's how well they're how good they are but the shocking. I don't WANNA say shocking. The most surprising aspect of how state right now is their defense. It's Yeah I'M GONNA throw. Here's a couple of stats for you. This is pro football focus rankings well. What are they fourth or fifth. In the country overall nationally ranked the best defense in College football the second best rushing defense in college football the best tackling defence in college football the best pass rushing college football the best coverage rich pass coverage unit in college football. That's not number one number one number one number one and number two versus the run like that. What what are they going. I think so you think you can't pass against them obviously and he can't run. Well and everyone likes to throw out who who they play. They haven't played anybody. Blah Blah Blah a lot compared to oh but a lot of teams haven't played anyone housed is one of them but they are beating teams so soundly and to be raped ranked number one almost across the board in every defensive category. It's it's unheard of and I mean their offense is performing the fifth the fifth grade offense in college football and the number number three pass offense in college football. The past blocking is subpar. A thirty second in the country rushing offenses subpar twenty-sixth in the country so a little perspective. You're not act like everything is just cooking. It's not but it's this team is playing really well and the other grades don't don't match stats though because Jacob Dobbin stat line is impressive but that's you know obviously grades and film and stats don't always coincide yeah. It's it's you can have have stats like that and there could be a chicken or somewhere and you just you don't realize it until you go to play Michigan State and then it's like Oh shit. Why can't we run the ball yeah well. We can't really run the ball that well. It hasn't been running at Great. That's why you can't run it today but they re the off. The line was player of the game in the unit of the game in my opinion after watching the film and Josh Albee was phenomenal. I mean he came in for Brennan Bowl and when he got dinged and he he was I think he was a player of the Game Brian announced. How's he was offensive player of the game he was dominant and it's what Josh Alabi should be all year long. He's been the best pass blocker when he would go in. I mean these Games are were fortunate enough to get to watch the second unit office line play and he's been the highest graded pass blocker of of all alignment he his run blocking was where he struggled and I read something and correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he switch sides. He was laughter now. He's right or vice versa. You know that's that's how it works. Though you're the sixth Lineman Lineman you're going to have to switch. You're going to have to play and he wanted me. I switched or whatever he was. All backwards in his run blocks up the wrong way a lot. Well what happened is as prince if people remember when he was he was the right tackle when Demarco Jones was there and then last year last year whatever two years ago he switched to left tackle. Which is is your most important position because he was the best tackle but he everything was screwed up his he? He just couldn't couldn't do it and so they ended up. Stud Greg stood Rahula moved him back over the right side and started Thera Mumford at left tackle because that's where is as comfortable as where he was best and it was the best unit so it's definitely different different especially. When you live you live with one foot back for eight years or however long. Play right tackle you you are used to pass sets too. You're right. You're used to run blocking the right everything to the right and then it's like all right. You're moving to the left and it's yeah I mean girls was when they switch up in the dance right but yeah he said it's taken wild but you could see. I think he's getting a lot more comfortable in that other side now yeah. Oh yeah he he definitely is so it was good to see him play. They need that office. Line needs spike and production a little competition. Somebody playing that well where now even the starters are sitting there like ooh I better I better be on my game but I think that that was the that was definitely the unit that I I was most impressed with an and Kudos to Gregson Ron because he's doing a phenomenal job of getting those guys developing those guys in season. I thought they were the under performers early and they're they're starting to come on and you love that because I've said it one hundred times I think on the show certainly in life that the job of an offensive line coach is harder than anything else in football. You have to get five five human beings to operate successfully in succession in sync with one another. It's like that is like even defense. Alignment your your defensive line. Coach doesn't have to do that now. It's more about disruption and defeating blocks. Offensive Line is is that is a hard job on top of that. It's like who in the world old if born find a four year old right now and say hey hey man you. WanNa do something for the rest of Your Life Like Okay Dad would put your face and smashed into this three hundred and thirty pound guy eighty times in a row and then take a shower and go home and then next week. We're GONNA do it again. Like who in the world is like. Oh Yeah I WANNA do that. Yeah no one but the ones that are really good at it love doing it they do through. It's a mentality but it was. It was really cool to see on offense. I mean ah you're watching the best quarterback in the country right now. Seriously the Justin Field Show is in full effect. He's the second highest graded still I said this last week and he still is after this last weekend. The second highest graded quarterback in college football still behind Joe Borough Ninety two point one percent insane what I saw on Saturday though and I had to look up the stats because every time it happened I was like oh he just gashing them every time they blitzed him. This son son of a bitch was gassing them. Just gashing M. C. was six for six one hundred percent completion percentage over one hundred yards passing when they blitzed unbelievable now now he was nine of sixteen when they played coverage and here's what that tells me that shows me that Justin fields is playing extremely well and the scary part Hortas not even close to his ceiling because what he's doing is he's just playing ball. He's just out there. The or the protection breaks down. He gets out there. He makes it throw but when he's sitting back there and reading it he's going to get better at that. Yeah he's GonNa. He's GONNA improve at it for sure and I've been critical of some of the scheme because it's hard to attack seven with four but at the end of the day that that what I said right there should be terrifying to fusions as this kid gets better gains experience experience starts attacking four man rushed seven man coverage defenses. He will be even more unstoppable. Yes I mean this is not a veteran fourth your guy that is just showing the country's the best the best quarterback in the in the in college football. This is a guy that he's just getting started when he starts gaining experience out there just picking apart the defenses in zone or man just picking it apart. That's going to be unbelievable unbelievable and it was it was just it was impressive. All the way around the only other off now the only other player on Ohio State's offense that grades out in the top twenty five nationally. Jk Dobbins is a number twenty four so to to have blinders on and say that this is the most dominant bla-bla-bla like there's there's still some work to be done in Columbus. Let's not not get ahead of ourselves here but J. K. Dobbins continues to gain steam he he he actually so this is a lot of yards. He has a lot of yards but so listen this. He's he's he's avoided twenty two tackles this year already in what four games twenty two tackles and that's fifteenth in the entire country for most avoided tackles but forty seven percent of six hundred and fifty four yards have been on eleven carries who so there's there's. There's a couple different ways to look at that right. There is a well he's not quite as efficient as his numbers may say or he's really explosive explosive because he gets chunk yardage so if if if he gets on over fifteen yard gain forty seven percent of his carries or his yardage is that that's the highest percentage in the big ten. No one in the big ten is getting more explosive runs than him not even John Taylor wow and it's it's it's it's really fun to watch and if that offense. Lichen can keep it going and keep developing and they you can start having more consistency. Jay could have a huge year. He's playing phenomenal but the like I said earlier the real story we line here. Is that defense think about this now. There's just think about if you're a defensive coordinator or if you're a fan it doesn't matter right now well. How state has the the highest graded corner in the Country Jeff Okuda. Obviously he played lights out this again. You had a game. We talked about it last week and he forgot there was a game last week actually but he he remembered remember Saturday. You know you're live right when the ball just kind of falls man laying on the ground there it is you definitely went to church eh but he has the highest grade of any corner in college football right now at eighty nine percent three interceptions three us just plain ridiculous. Oh and what else would you like. Oh how about the fourth highest grade safety in college football in Jordan fuller not bad eighty seven percent. That's not bad all right so now you've got the secondary. They're gonNA be able to cover some people. What else would you like. I don't know how about the highest grade defensive end in college rushing. Yeah I'll take shares. Young has caused twenty one total pressures this year so.

"The new video putting out for patriotic and i'm gonna put one out for patriot one for just general public called film forensics because that's one of the place that breaking down because j._k. Dobbins flat had an and protection and i told you in the preview show j._k. Needs to be better and paseo that has to happen and it didn't happen. I mean he had a complete bust in pass bro. He bypassed the linebacker that he was supposed to block and that linebacker hit justin fields that can't happen not if we're going to if estates and go out and win the big ten that can't happen. They need a running back. That is excellent impasse bro and that's what that's what zeke was has carlos hyde was. That's what j._k. Needs to be for sure. The only the only real negative i could say about justice fields is and it's not a negative. It's first first game game of the year most quarterbacks i mean almost every school in the country would kill for a performance like justice fields heads so we're really nitpicking here but he does need to clean up his timing a little bit he was laid on a couple of quick game throws and a movement throw the and being especially a movement throw like a rollout that can be disastrous. If you're late i mean the whole defense is pursuing and versus better defense. Both of those can be problematic if he doesn't get it fixed but fortunately it was f._a._u. Is going through the grades. After i've watched the film i thought justin fields obviously played extremely well. I thought you know what kudos to brandon bow and grading out at eighty two percent at first game back. That's that's big time they need to. They need that jeremy rucker. How about him unbelievable. I mean he he he really burst on the scene and we're gonna talk about some things that need improved moved on especially the tight end position before catches thirty eight yards two touchdowns greater doubt it at seventy five percent i mean that was really excellent game for area the other one joan jackson so the two the two new guys on the offense line essentially graded out the highest on the offensive line and then ben victor and austin matt graded out decently high to <hes> <hes> some some disappointing i guess points of need to improve for the buckeyes the first and foremost offense align <hes> it was it. I wouldn't seen a bomb a nation. It wasn't terrible but why davis played very average. Josh alabi when he went in the game was very average in the run game but josh josh albee is a very athletic tackle. He graded out really well impasse bro but when it came to the run game and moving people and being tough he wasn't there. He didn't show up but the really really the old enters a whole did that. You didn't see a ton of just displacement f._a._u. You shoulda saw major displacement and the other thing. I saw that it was very concerning is there was twice in the first half that we seven-man pass protection. We kept the tight end and back in and they've had a three man. Rush and fields got pressured twice. I i mean just you do the math. That's more than a double team on each guy so we had to ohio state players on one player across the board and they still got pressure now schematically. I'm not a huge fan of that because anytime you have seven man pro versus three men rush there have a lot of guys in coverage covering covering your four people right really three people because the quarterbacks throwing the ball so you have now. You have eight people covering three hard to get open so schematically. I really hate that package but i know kevin wilson had success with it at indiana. It's more of a temple thing usually but it was not not that impressive and and and then i really people i know buckeye fans or just on cloud nine right now think we could beat the patriots. I thought it was an average average. First game above average will say above average. I game jay dobbins was was okay..
