For the first time this season, we have a legitimately interesting game to discuss on the weekly recap show, as the Buckeyes struggled to put away Indiana, winning 42-35 on Saturday.
After a quick rundown of the game news, we jump right into the offense to talk about Justin Fields’ off-day, the improved running game, and I (Patrick) go on my first of two extended explanations of what happened during the game, this time on why the OSU line struggled so much with blitz pickups.
Then on the defensive side of the ball, it’s not quite armageddon yet for Kerry Coombs, but things do not appear to be headed in the right direction even if Ohio State won’t be tested defensively again until… January?
Lastly, we dole out Buckeye leaves, talk Big Ten (hello, Northwestern) and close out with some CFB talk.
