    We just don't handle having a big lead very well, which shouldn't be surprising because we're pretty young on defense.

    Speaking of which, Borland/Browning/Werner all played very well today.

    Getting gashed through the air > Getting gashed on the ground.

    Feels like teams have made some incredible plays against us this year. Today we just blew a few bad assignments that you can't blow. Marcus Williamson gave up a long touchdown to double the outside receiver who ran a 4 yard route.

    Hooker and Williamson need to play a lot less.

    Yeah, hate to be 'blame the refs' guy, but this officiating crew really stood out today (in addition to the crew last night having some bad calls):

    -Didn't review a blatant (and obvious on just one intial TV replay at a basic angle) fumble early that was clearly loose/out and recovered by OSU on like the IU 25
    -Killed an OSU drive with a weak personal foul call on Wyatt Davis that could've easily been (and probably should've been) illegal hands to the face (or maybe offsetting at least)
    -Could've easily called multiple pick plays on Indiana WRs (Klatt specifically mentioned/pointed out 2 on the broadcast)
    -Did review another fumble that was clearly and quickly recovered by OSU that the announcers and Mike Pereira in the studio all agreed was in fact a fumble, yet quickly determined that it wasn't a fumble in their eyes while Pereira was still explaining why it was a fumble
    -And totally missed and didn't review a blatant targeting hit on Fields late--one that was much more obvious than the hit on Lawrence in the playoffs--and the game is over then if they call it (it was on the 4th and 1 late)

    I know OSU got the benefit of a ticky tack facemask call in the first half (it was more like an unintentional punch to the facemask than a grab/pull/yank), but OSU had already gotten a first down on the play so they just got an extra 15 yards on top. And seems like the DBs were physical with the Indiana WRs a few times during the game--well, at least the couple times they were in the same vicinity as the WR when the ball got there--but the Indiana WRs were physical, too (including the aforementioned potential pick plays).

    I think i need to go take a walk ;)

    The two biggest bungles by our coaching staff were in the red zone when we had no one in the middle of the field and they ended up scoring and continuing to put a linebacker out wide on a WR/RB.

    Oh and playing Marcus Hooker the whole game.

    Kinda feel like they need to give up on the idea of having him on the sideline if he's going to be calling the plays. Need to throw him up to the booth like Hafley was or let Mattison have more of a say on the D since he's currently up there. I know Coombs likes being that pumped up guy on the sidelines, but not cutting it currently, especially in the second half as you pointed out.

    Penix missed a few but made some insane throws, don’t know how you can bash Wade for that TD.
    Don’t know how he is as a nfl prospect but Frogoyle is insane
    Tom Allen is perfect for Indiana. Has all of them playing like Rudy

    I hope so, you could be correct. He comes out first half with an outstanding scheme, but it seems like after the opponent makes their adjustments he struggles to counter.

    When Fields is blitzed, he makes bad decisions. He’s the best QB I have seen at Ohio State, but he does not get rid of the ball quickly or find his hot WR on a blitz.

    That’s our weakness.

    Indiana was 18th nationally in rush defense entering this game and we rang 307 on them. Great to see.

    I’d change that to Fields makes bad decisions when he’s about to get sacked. He was dead on the last 2 picks.

    We had a whole lot of big plays after he dodged a few rushers

    IU did a shit ton of blitzing, and blitzed multiple people at once. Seemed we didn’t have a quick check down option, or Fields just didn’t use it.

    I still can’t believe it was 35-7 in the 3rd, and we didn’t score another offensive TD.

    Not sold on Coombs as DC, yet.

    We adjusted in the first half with some screens and quick hitters. Seemed to go away from that in the second half. I don't this was a great Ryan day game. Think he might have gotten a bit impatient in the second half and pressed for a knockout blow. Indiana did a nice job limiting explosive plays down field, but there were opportunities in the short passing game that we didn't fully realize

    Idk, I'll be interested to see some breakdowns of the game.

    Thots...

    - Fields is great. Maybe the best QB I've ever seen play for OSU. That said, he still holds the ball way too long and forces way too much. He needs to learn to throw the ball away and live to fight another down.

    - I don't know if it is Fields or the offense, but we are awful at fire routes. When a defense blitzes 3 guys up the gut, you have to have your inside receivers call that out and sit down about 5 yards from the LOS.

    - Fuck all of our Kickers. Get all of them off the team.

    - The Linebackers might be our best unit. They played great today- Borland, Werner, and Browning are really stepping up.

    - Shaun Wade is not a 1st round CB. He's been beat way too often this year by nearly everyone he's lined up against. Loves that pick-6, but that's all he has had this year.

    - Running backs are fine. Teague played well and Sermon was ok too. Neither are going to be game breakers. It blows my mind how hard it is for Teague to change direction. It doesn't even make sense.

    - WRs are still elite. Couple drops today, but I'm not worried about that. Really surprised we didn't target our TEs.

    - The lack of pressure from the DL is a concern. They were great stuffing the run, but they couldn't get to Penix much at all. I think we've been spoiled with elite DEs and forgot what a DL looks like without a top 5 guy.

    - Marcus Hooker needs replaced. Put Proctor at 1-deep and call it a day.

    - We need to clean up the penalties.

    All that said, Indiana is a fucking solid team. I'm really impressed with their defense. They cause havoc and have been doing it all year with less talented players. Penix is a stud and their WRs are impressive.

    Our offense will need to be clicking to hang with Bama & Clemson. Those guys will put up 40+ on us easily if we don't make improvements.
