I heard the OSU coaching staff has been taking visits to see how other programs craft their offense and defense. Too bad Heacock and Bollman went to the Westerville Pee Wee football league coaching clinic. Their report, "What I did During the Summer", got panned because it was exactly the same as was turned in to Jimmy Vest for each of the last 7 years. I guess they thought that's what Tress expected. Don't expect a Buckeye passing grade for the SC Trojans game.

All summer long to practice and what do the master minds of the WWH athletic center come up with? How about 3 offensive penalties in a row, one of them a delay of game that came immediately following a false start penatly!? Giving up almost 350 yards of offense to a team that couldn't field even one player on a BCS school's roster. An offensive line that continues to hemmorage leaks which result in the OSU backfield ressembling a jail break of opposing players.
I know some might say they were looking ahead to next week, but since when does anyone look forward to their own slaughter?

I'm sorry but someone needs to say it. There is a leadership shortfall on this team. Traditionally a quarterback is supposed to be a leader. This quarterback takes the field with the name Mike Vick on his face. No wonder he can't throw the ball. I feel sorry for this team next week they are going to get embarrassed again.

Officiating 4 leaves? Are you kidding me? What about the obvious face mask on Boom? The holding and clipping by the Navy O line? What game were you watching? Put the Kool Aid down.

Did the person rating this game even watch it? The offense was mediocre at best. The defense was terrible. When is Tress going to get his head out of his @ss and realize his coaching philosophy doesn't work?

WOW, you're pretty generous in your leaves....Coaching staff 3 leaves, so the going for it on 4th was all u had a problem with, how about the no adjustments on Defense, I understand that navy runs an unusual offense but we're still talking about a ONE dimentional offense with 4 or 5 running plays for god's sake! and the Defense got 3 even though they got burned on the same play over and over again with the freshman QB running up the gut with no safety in the middle....I agree T.P. looked good and the WR were a bright spot but how do u give a pass to the OL which is full of H.S.All americans and far outweigh the opposing DL by 50lbs each, or the fact they couldnt stop a Zone blitz. I'm sorry I gave passes b4 when we looked lackluster against the Youngstown states, Ohio U, Akrons of the world but we never blew any of these teams out or could even afford to sit our starters in the 3rd qtr. team wasnt prepared

I dont follow OSU football. I once did but, the media and the over the top fans ruined it for me where it got to be no fun anymore . I cant turn the TV on , reading the paper without having the Buckeyes being shoved down my throat. Going by a complete stranger and being told ,GO Bucks ! It got to be too much. My wife and I was watching a movie on TV a few years ago. The plot got to the point where the murderer was going to be named , the background music started to play and I was on the edge of my seat. Then , they interrupted the movie to show the Buckeys boarding the bus to head to Michigan.When they got back to the movie it was over. That was the icing on the cake. Its not that I hate the Buckeyes , its their fans. Case in point... It seems just like yesterday that Tressel was the greatest coach of all time and Pryor was going straight to Canton .Would you people like some cheese with that whine.

I guess people come on here to unload all their negative baggage...even about living in Columbus!
Wow. I come on here to read about what people are saying about the Buckeyes. I'm not impressed. I'm beginning to think these postings are for complainers!!
All I ever heard last year was WHY DOESN'T TRESSEL GO FOR 4th DOWNS?? Now that he did, all I hear is complaints about Tressel making that call! I challenge every person who posted before me to come on here and make a positive statement about Ohio State, the Buckeyes, your life, something! I live in Mesa, and football fans here would give anything to have a team like Ohio State. They can't even fill the ASU stadium each week!! Start being grateful for what you have at Ohio State...and start BELIEVING in your team. They need to know you BELIEVE in them.

Amen, Brutess419!

Frankly, I think a good team like Navy is a much better foe to start the season with than, SJSU, S Charleston, NIU, or some MAC. 5 leaves for the match-up.

I liked the attempt to go for it on 4th and 2. Should of thried the FG, yes, but nothing like showing your kids you believe in them. If FB(freshman) Homan gets his block, 1st down and game over. Great learning experience for all involved.

Rolle is awesome. Carter looks to be a great receiver, even as a freshman. Lots of talent everywhere.

You complainers should feel ashamed. I hope to read much better comments next week. Don't even get on here and complain one iota when the Trojans goes home with their tails between their legs. I'm afraid some of you will still find something to whine about, since a glass half full is also a glass half empty to some.

This could/should be a special year, so enjoy it!

GO BUCKS!!!!!!!
