Austin Spitler does a pretty good job as well.

The Buckeyes get most of the best players from Ohio prep schools every year, yet, The Buckeyes still have a prep school defensive coach in jim heacock.

FIRE heacock.

If the offense can catch the Defense this team will go a long way

The Buckeye defense is very good. If they added a few blitzes a game they would be awesome!

Another year, the same broken record: The defense looks strong & the offense pitiful. Once again, the defense will have to shoulder the load because the offense will "3 & out" all year long.

That said the defense could be even better if they blitzed more & went for the kill. But, if they slip & give up even one score, that can be enough to beat you when you have no offense to rely on.

This is the best defense I have seen since 2002. The defensive line may be better than those guys, which is high praise. Coach Tress seems to have another team loaded for Tresselball, minus a dominant tailback.

Austin Spitler needs to be replaced. The only LB that looks the part is Rolle. Russell needs to be replaced as well. Checkwa is pushing it. Our defense looks pretty good this year but there are some changes that need to be made if we ever hope to win outside of our conference.
