Yeah, I thought the OSU LBs were the most underperforming unit.  Not sure it would have mattered, and Sark schemed them into some bad matchups, but even when they had chances to make plays, they just didn't.
najee disagrees. ~3:00 mark. good interview all around.

I think that taste of DJ we got will make Clemson #1 and Alabama #2.

The only question every year is who is team #4 to enter the Bama/Clemson/OSU slaughterhouse.

Oklahoma, with a returning Spencer Rattler, and a defense that looked better late in the season seems like the choice?  Iowa State should be really, really good too.  UNC has the QB in place, but I think they lose a lot around him. 
isu returns like 20 starters. they should have a banner year.

I was disappointed in the osu offense, they should’ve gotten close to 40 in this game, losing sermon really hurt because you can’t run screens with Teague, and I actually think Williams may end up being better. But fields missed some crossing routes that would’ve been big gains, a few questionable play calls, 4th and 2 to Teague was terrible. 2nd and goal from roughly 8 and hand off to Teague was strange. But our WRs were good enough to do damage and didn’t do enough. I thought O line played well enough, in the end we’d still lose because you can’t stop Bama offense. although osu tackling was awful, time for some new blood at LB and in secondary, banks is probably only player worth playing.

I’m not sure OSU is a top 4 next year, the defense was clearly not a strength , they need help everywhere in back 7. D line will be ok I think, but I don’t see a dominating force and offense loses fields, sermon, olave, Davis , there’s no game changer at RB unless a young kid steps up. TE should be good, WRs look good, but who’s QB and what’s offense look like? That’s a lot of questions to be a top 4 team.

OSU set their defense up to stop the run- which they did to a degree. The LBs had just about all of the tackles. 


If I were disappointed ( I am not- Bama is just better) it would be the D-line. Generated zero pressure   

Plus Sark did a great job of play calling and design to expose the fact that the LBs were run focused.

Lot of returning talent, lot of stud recruits. Same as Clemson and Bama

Plus, who is going to beat them?

IMO, Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan all still have issues.

Iowa and Indiana are probably the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the Big Ten going into next year

Smith and Togiai being out has a lot to do with that

They do have Oregon, but its at home.

No Iowa, no Wisconsin, Penn State at home, Indiana in Bloomington, but it's not exactly the most hostile road environment

The athleticism of OSU"s LBs was exposed.  I'm sure they're great guys and hard workers, but not elite athletes.  It's as simple as that.

Kerry Coombs needs to be reassigned or released.He kept putting Borland in situations he had no business being in.Jones had too much time and Tuf wasn't hanging with any of those guys.Put in back ups with speed.

if OSU's LBs aren't fast, who's 4 and 5 star recruits are faster?

maybe playing in the big ten, speed at LB isn't the most important tool?

Going to 4 LBs was odd as well, the 3 we have weren’t very good
