But it's not the offense that's a problem! No sir. We've never averaged 28 ppg on offense, the line has been a disaster since I got here, and my QB coach learned his trade on Netflix, but it's certainly not the offense as a whole that's a problem.

It's not coaching or playcalling, either.

It's all focus. That's all it is.

Here, have another glass of Kool-aid.

Jim must be the only one in Buckeye Nation to think that Pryor is progressing.

"The general direction in which something tends to move."
Mr. Tressel has developed a serious trend and it's called DOWNWARD!!!!!! Or by Eite football program standards a FAILURE!!!!!
Let's remember where those recruits came from on that National Championship Team.. Not from Mr. Tressel!!!! I'm
Sorry to admit this as an OSU Alum but Ohio State Football is no longer an ELITE program!!! Who have they beaten within the past 36 months???? Indiana, Troy, Navy(barely),and a poor Michigan team WOW!!!! If Ohio State and the Boosters are ok with this TREND then let's keep Mr. Tressel and the football program right where it is..........AVERAGE AT BEST!!!!!!

Pryor most definately has the skills to play but the coaching staff at Ohio State can not find a way to get the best out of the welth of talent they have.Every year they consistantly recruite well but fall flat in the games John Cooper recruited well also.I think if coach Tressel dont make some serious changes to his staff his time at Ohio State will be over sooner than he expects.

Sure, you don’t want to throw the kid under the bus, but Pryor making progress, come on, poor throws and 4 turnovers equates to progress? Again, starts up front, how much longer do you tolerate bad offensive line play? Make a change, hire offensive line/ coordinator.

Tressel's mafia connections paid Terrelle Pryor's family a lot of money to get him to come to Ohio State and part of the deal was that Pryor would start. Never go against the family.

They might try making some changes in the offensive line and in how the quarterback is used, first. At this point I don't think the evidence supports that the quarterback is the problem and the majority of sports news lately seems to support that.

You may be closer to the truth than you think. Be careful.

Tressel has no choice but to stick with Pryor. If he showed any sign of losing confidence now he opens up a whole can of worms related to what he did with Boechman last year. Tressel convinced everyone last year that Pryor was that once in a liftime special player. He will either sink or swim with him. The only way Blauserman will get in is if Pryor is hurt.

so in other words, Tressel, You're saying that you rely on your D and speacial teams to put points on the board. Pathetic

look buckeye nation this fix is easy and simple. the o line needs to come off the ball with authority period and start pounding and smashing everyone in there way. lets face it if your line ave is over 6'5 and 300lbs and your 1st and goal inside the 5yd line aka usc and purdue and you cant move bodies to score td's you lose easy, simple. now coach tressel call mack brown of texas he'll set you straight on pryor he's more than vince young so please tress dont fix what aint broke go watch tape of last year when you let the kid play his game run first throw 2nd. give him easy outs middle and wide out screens. run some reverses and options, move the pocket on throwing downs use play action. get tape on tebow he'll pryors 10x the athletic that clown is so use it to your advantage you aint pete carroll so quit trying to develope an nfl qb when everyone knows pryor wont be one. unleash this talent in the big 10 run saine minimum 20x game he'll get 100yds easy run pryor 20x and throw 20x and he'll get you over 250yds/game and with out defense no one and i mean NO ONE in the country could beat us. but hey just 44yrs of football experience talking i could be wrong.....hmmmm......nah. GO BUCKS!

Last year our starting quarterback had the best quarterback recruit in the nation awaiting an opportunity. This year our starting quarterback has an untested Joe Bauserman awaiting an oportunity. The situations are not nearly the same. What does Joe Bauserman bring to the game Pryor doesn't. To this point no one knows nor can there be realistic expectations of an improvement over Pryor. If the coaching staff believed Joe Bauserman offered the best chance for victory he'd be playing. Things are going badly, but to change to an unproven less athletic quarterback behind he current offensive line would be foolish. And we've already seen too much foolishness. Just hold onto he ball, son. Recall the similar fumble problems of Beanie Wells early in his OSU career. He improved and so will Pryor.

Seems to me we need an offensive coordinator ... and Tressel should hand over the offense to a specialist. Let go a little...

As for Pryor, I think a benching in the middle of the Purdue game for a series or two might have slapped him in the head and snapped him awake.

Tressel is a loser and he's got too many smalltime assistants. Pay Tressel what he's worth and use the other 3.6 million to get some good help'

Pryor is progressing and peace in the middle east is just around the corner. it appears that OSU's coaching staff can see as well as Stevey Wonder. At least 3 of the next 5 games will be a LOSS.
