Can physical safeties cover? | BuckeyeXtra

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

Their relative inexperience is a matter of record. Their coverage skills are unproven.

I'm all for if you can't break up the pass or get the pick, make sure that receiver knows your there and bust that A$$.

VERY timely article....I think that the Buckeye safeties and their inability to cover is the Bucks weakest link.....Look for the Canes to expose them big-time......Buckeyes will have to blitz to stop Cane passing attack!!!

"Inability to cover"... exaggerate much? It may be our d's only real weak point, but for this d that's akin to the aerodynamics being the "weak point" of a Mack Truck!

THIS IS YOUR YEAR BOYS!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!

These boys are solid, no worries! Nobody in the nation will be able to run against us which will force them to pass. Once they are one dimentional, the linebackers and defensive line's pash rush becomes most important. We have that covered big time. Don't even worry about the D side of the ball.

Just a correction to your statement, The Canes will TRY to expose the Bucks safeties. So let them try!

The last time we beat the sugar canes - it was with a d that was mean and hard hitting. Might not have been the best d - but they hit hard. If our young d smacks people down - we win. Big plays given up? It will happen. But as long as they play smash mouth we will come out on top. Look how the canes folded when hit hard last bowl game. Oh - I know the cold weather hurt the hot house flowers from the south. But it will be a warm day on the 11th for the canes to get introduced to our new d.
Go bucks!

Amen and Amen brothers! Canes might produce for the first half against us but after a couple punches to the jaw, they will fold. Buckeyes will dominate the second half with a strong running game and knock out defense!

No, Russell and Hines were the starters that day. But Johnson got significant playing time (12 minutes), the second-most he played all year, to 21 minutes vs. New Mexico State.

These kids can hit and cover, I'm more concerned with Torrence and Chekwa being on their guys so we can blitz from everywhere.

The Buckeyes have better put a lot of pressure on Jacory Harris the CANE QB. If they do not it will be another CHOKING afternoon at the SHOE. Just 16 days away from another National TV CHOKE. The USC CHOKE was priceless. I will always remember the sad little faces of Buckeye Fan after the USC loss! GO GATORS!!! GO SEC!!!

The truth is that Buckeye Fans just don't like to face the truth that their beloved Buckeyes have CHOKED in more big non-conference football than any other football team in the history of the NCAA. Hey! The truth hurts! I'll definetly be watching the GATOR BAMA GAME. It must be pretty embarrassing to be a Buckeye Fan in the heart of SEC Country. GO GATORS!!! GO SEC!!!

It is amazing that you even know what the words "meaningful out of conference game" means. UF does not know how to schedule any of these. At least Miami has always done it. A few SEC schools are now doing it. However, the Gators just wont travel north. Please do not claim FSU is a quality out of conference game!!!
