    If Jones starts 24-17 us. If JT starts than I'd got 52-10

    Let's keep getting better each week. Offense flows a lot better with JT... No surprise lol

    Still would like to see improvement in the vertical passing game.

    Our best chance for vertical is to get the run game open ,then it opens up with play action, right now we dotn do that and try to stretch it with WR that arnt just at that level yet yo get open on just running verts. While our WR are getting better a good play action game will help them out alot.

    We all act like Smith could run verts all day and was open all the time, but he had the play action game helping him out alot. and We've seem to abandon that this year

    Kyle Flood Updates

    + Last week's win over Indiana was an exciting game with a great finish, but now they have to turn the page to face the "well-deserved No. 1 team in the nation". OSU runs very well and they're explosive and Rutgers will have to play very well to be 1-0 on Saturday night.

    + J.T. Barrett is a dynamic athlete who can score from anywhere on the field. You have to focus so much on him in the run game that it creates one-on-ones in the passing game. They're preparing to play against both quarterbacks.

    + They are not yet sure if All-B1G receiver Leonte Caroo will be available to play after being injured last week. They'll know more later in the week.

    + Flood thinks his running game has been effective so far this year. They are right near 200 yards per game, which is where they need to be to run their offense effectively. If they can force defenses to add to the box, then that opens possibilities in the passing game.

    + The running game will be imperative to keep Ohio State's offense off the field, but it will only be truly effective if they score points with the running game. Time of possession is nice, but possessions need to end in touchdowns.

    + Flood feels like Rutgers has been a very good fit in the Big Ten. "I think we're a perfect fit."

    + "Saturday night will be the best atmosphere in all of college football."

    Caroo will play, you can bank on that. I say the Buckeyes lay that wood on Rutgers, the team is going to rally with JT at the helm, I am saying 56-13

    I saw today that someone wrote it wont be fair if Jones doenst have a package, like JT had, to contribute to game. My only question is what has/ what can Jones do that deserves its own set. If he comes in the teams know right our tempo/red option goes right out the door and we're running power or trying to throw ball deep

    Lets get the intermediate passing game going for once. JT should be able to dissect these guys.

    Rutgers is 124th in the country in total pass defense. That makes them the 4th-worst in the country... 3rd-worst in the stellar B1G

    Indiana and Nebraska are 2nd-worst and worst in the country, respectively. That means the B1G has 3 of the 4 worst pass defenses in the country AND 4 of the top 10 (Ohio State 4, Michigan 6, Northwestern 7, Penn State 10)

    I think our offense finally shows us what its capable of...And the defense will feed off of the offense.

    Ohio State - 62
    Rutgers - 10

    Zeeeeeeeke will go off for 200+ and 3 TD's

    Braxton will have 150 all purpose yards and 2 TD's

    This will be fun to watch!

    Oh, and Cardale will play the majority of the 4th.
