This is what happens when "the team" is simply one or two super-star players. They eventually get hurt, then it's all over. Bauserman is a 5th year senior, little help really, and no future potential. The next star QB is still in HS. Time to develop others, I'd say.

They could have worked to develop Bauserman if they had not been so busy running up the score on winless Eastern Michigan. Tressel has never been good at developing the second and third string. I think they need to have Herron and Saine in the backfield at the same time. That would cause some real confusion for opponents!

When you make the quarterback the offense's option 1A (passing leads team) and option 1B (running leads team), the offense can implode in upon itself if he gets hurts. Without a NFL caliber running back starting or playing much and without there being a likely productive replacement at the QB position, OSU will struggle to score many points, having to rely upon a good but not great defense and rather average special teams play to keep games close. Looks the team will be lucky to win 10 games.

Without Pryor this is a...9-4 team......MAC level talent at WR, Posey would be 4th string on either the 2005 or 2006 teams!!!.....Lousy O-line.....Weak at safety....Worst punting game in college football....9th grade level play calling....Pryor needs to be close to 100% for this team to beat a top 25 team...like Wisconsin, UM or Iowa...

I would have rather seen Guiton over Bauserman...

The way the offense was sputtering and Pryor was the one consistantly moving the ball he would have been a better choice.

I totally disagree: put a different ,i.e., better passing, quarterback at the helm and the offense hums. Pryor has limited the offense in what it can do--due to his limited passing skill and continued injury problems--as well as how the surrounding offensive skill people develop. Just like how Steve Bellisari, Stanley Jackson, and Kirk Herbstreit negatively impacted the offense and ultimately the team.

Nothing to worry about. He will be fine. If not, we can just run with our backs more. It is obvious we can run well enough, since we ran 3 straight times from 1st and 25!

Please stop with the national championship talk. That talk is based on memories of the Rose bowl last year. There's a long way to go and this team is already showing signs of weakness. Obviously Pryor is the difference and without him the team is nothing special. No running game and horrible special teams. Punting game is last in college football. How does that equate to a national championship?

Bauserman has no business being out there. There's a reason he went to baseball. We'd be better off getting the others some experience because Bauserman simply cannot move the team.

The defense is not looking as formidable as they have been made out either. They give up way too many yards in the air and aren't yet the shut-down defense we need to be the best.

Right now we are barely top 10, if that. Without Pryor, maybe not top 20. Got to do much better than that.

The Buckeyes can only go as far as Pryor can take them. As usual, the O-line and the backup QB's are terrible (broken record EVERY year) and the better RB's do not have seniority.

What was the weakness in 2002 that nearly derailed the dream season time after time? What killed them against Florida, LSU, and USC in 08? The Offensive line.

Fortunately, the defense & special teams were stellar those years and kept them in contention. While the defense is great the special teams are awful this year, the worst I've ever seen them.

They are dangerously thin at WR & DB's but are especially lacking at backup QB. They have the experience and supposed talent on the O-line but we've been down this road every year for the past 10 years.

Come on Terrelle, please get better! You're our only hope!

Am I the only one who saw Kenny Guiton light up our spring game this year? Am I the only one who recognizes that Bauserman is SLOW and not anywhere near as athletic as Guiton? Why aren't we talking about how Guiton ran a 15 yard TD last week? Guiton is a mini Pryor who would probably start for 75 other FBS teams. COME ON! A mobile QB gives us so much more hope than a slow back up. Just look at Penn State, mich, Miami U, etc.

I think with a little playing time, Guiton could be the answer if Pryor is a no-go. But will tress listen? NOPE, he will lose a game, big ten title and chance for a BCS before replacing an inneffective upper classman. What a shame.

Its sad and pathetic the gushing over Pryor - everyone freezes as though the president was shot. And all over a 20 year old kid. Speaking of, I dont see where he will ever play on Sundays - hes a terrible passer and still makes way too many mistakes for where he should be at this point in his career. Frankly, I dont see him in the heisman hunt, either.

Wow, talk about some folks that need some x-lax. Every team has a leader on their team. The Bucks have won 10 straight games since that. Purdue lost last year. TP was MVP after he took the "unbeatable " Oregon Ducks. He doesn't nor do we Bucks fan give a BUCK what you folks who are full of popped think about the Bucks demise. The Bucks just keeps on winning. GO BUCKS!!!

Boeckman's backup was Pryor - we know what happened there.
Smith's backup was Zwick - who as a backup did fine (Alamo Bowl?)
Krenzel's backup was Mullen - who stepped up in several games.

So where is this horrible backup QB issue? Oh, right - you guys don't need any facts to support your complaining.

Reading these posts gag me. Nearly every fan becomes a coach and points out all the things that are "wrong" with Ohio State, from the players to the coaching.
I wonder how you people would react to such negativity from those who know nothing about what you do for a living, yet pick apart your on the job performance? So what if the Buckeyes are not the best in the country? They are, without a doubt, one of the top 10 (maybe 15) teams MOST EVERY YEAR. Do you realize there are about 120 teams or so that wish they had what Ohio Sate has? There is no team in the country that wins every game, every year. But let the Buckeyes stub their toe once or twice and all the armchair coaches come out of the woodwork to display their vast coaching knowledge.
Ohio State takes a back seat to no one when it comes to pride, prestige, and national following.
Enjoy the games, cheer for your team, and quit trying to tell everyone how much you know about football. You really don't know as much as you think you do.

The right perspective. Amazing how people who never coached a pee wee game and do not attend practices and player meetings know more than the coach that has the Buckeyes as the team ranked in the top 25 longer than any other team in the country. The coach that is 5-3 in BCS games.

Fire Bollman. He is horrible . Zone blocking. Poor technique. Poor up the gut running. When can we see a screen or a run around the tackel where we pull a guard that goes around and hit a cb or a olb. Bollman has to go this is hurting recruiting in the future. He is a bum. Tressle runs a offense like old people fuck.

Guiton is better than Buaserman like Berry and Hall are better than Saine.

What. Saine as a running back is slow to read his blocks and has poor vision. Cant make great cuts and can not make guys miss. Berry and Hall are faster to the gap and are shifty. They are more talented than saine. Herron is the number one. Berry on special teams is great and he has moves and vision.1.8 per carry. Enough said about Saine with 1.8 per carry.
