    The same guy that is supposed to be developing all of these All-American LB's on our roster is the same guy calling our defensive plays. I am very frustrates with Fickell right now. The offense is running a brand new scheme. It's understandable for them to have struggles. The defense is what frustrates me. If I were Fick, I'd get it together because Urban has had some great defenses and understands the importance of it.

    When I look at the LB corp, this is exactly what I think.....

    Buckeyes Win Ugly Again, Beat UAB, 29-15....Ohio State turned in another lackluster performance against a perceived lesser opponent, but the Buckeyes nevertheless secured their fourth victory in as many games with a 29-15 win Saturday over winless UAB in front of 105,019 fans at Ohio Stadium.

    Since we've not seen any improvements in stuff like tackling and coverage, I think we're doomed when we play the Spartans next week.

    I can picture it, their RB running up the gut whilst our LBers dive around at his ankles and goes off for an 80 yard TD score.

    Maybe getting a blow-out loss to a B1G team is what we need in order to wake up? I'd rather get blown out by MSU than get blown out by that other Michigan team if it means we start playing hard again.

    I am worried about the tackling, poor angles and lack of pressure............

    Maybe not. If we only follow EMU game plan.

    That is not the type of attitude I like from a defensive coach after that poor of a game. He needs to give a shit about a lot more that points. Fact of the matter is, you were playing UAB! If we were playing any top 25 team today, we would have given up 35+ points. Change your attitude, coach! Or you will be standing in the unemployment line with about 10% of the country.

    While we focus on the defense, it is a team game and the offense needs to get some first downs and not have consecutive 3 and outs...........we had 5 today.

    UAB: 80 plays
    OSU: 57 plays

    If Meyer wants bump and run............why are we not playing bump and run?

    How many times did Miller over throw the receivers? Anybody. Why don't the coach's just have Miller throw 100 times a day during practice.

    I'm sure games like this aren't helping Meyer's stress level...

    I bet EMU can do rudimentary tackling though.

    If I see another OSU defender diving at a players ankles I think I will headbutt a wall in frustration.

    it all starts with the angles. with every missed tackle you see a bad angle. also, travis howard sucks! almost every time i see this guy he's whiffing on tackles or out of position. it would be nice to see doran grant in there.

    Plays are disturbing~~

    as someone said already OSU ran 57 UAB ran 80 (OY ! VEY !) whats even more disturbing is we have given up an avg.of 455 total yards the last 2 games (double OY ! VEY!)we might be the worst unbeaten in the country,is ther any light at the end of the tunnel ???
