Ohio State v Washington

Postby donovan » Tue Jan 01, 2019 6:49 pm

This game may end up with a hundred plays. Could be decided in 4th quarter. Washington defensive line is being manhandled by OSU offensive line. I want the PAC 12 to make a good showing....

"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won't!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice."

Ohio State's offensive line can't seem to wait on the snap. Washington is playing ok. Ohio State's defense isn't very good. The Buckeye offense needs to put points on the board because the Buckeye defensive backfield tends to make games interesting for Ohio State.

Doesn't look good at the half for Washington....

Receivers running open for OSU while the Washington QB seems off target.

That last score before the half helped. I didn't want to only be up 11 going out of the half. Petersen is great at making halftime adjustments. His receivers were open most of the first half. If Browning starts hitting them it may get interesting really fast.
I have huge respect for the Washington head coach and I don't look for them to throw in the towel until the clock runs out in the forth quarter. The Buckeyes had better not relax.

My observations.

Washington is not in the same class as Ohio State. They are a good ball club but 1st half just out everything.

OSU uses full-body tackling. The get as much contact as possible and the offensive player gets no extra yardage. Their heads are always up. (LSU and UCF, both teams lowered heads and went into players...and 5 yards after stop.

Washington needs to put on some pressure. Not sure they can. Petersen is good about playing their game and not panicking, so we will see if they can plug up the holes. OSU might not make many changes, why would they. I suspect the second half will repeat the first. You can't win is the offense is never on the field.

I have not given up, just not clear to me what the Huskies need to do.

You are right that if the offense can't stay on the field that it will be a long day. I think offensively Ohio State is on another level. if the offensive line was better - and they have two starters out on a not so good line - the Buckeye offense would be elite. As good as anyone. Defensively they are very average. Linebackers have gotten better in the last few games, but the DB's are in the wrong place a lot. The defensive line is very good, but can be too aggressive sometimes. Ohio State as a team just gets too full of themselves sometimes and just assumes the other team will lay down. That is what happened at Purdue and a very motivated Purdue team made them pay. Ohio State just flat got their butt handed to them in that game.

This game is already over.

Washington is doing their best to hang on for dear life.

If Washington doesn't punch this one into the end zone, it is going to be a miserable finish.

Well, Washington is not that bad of a team. Reality is, the PAC 12 is not in the same league as the big boys. Huskies will play until the final whistle but there is no toot.

This is the Buckeye defense that I know.

That is the Ohio State team I have seen all year. Sometimes they look like a really good team, but sometimes they look like a team that thinks they are better than they are and that is the result. Washington and Petersen went wide open and came a hair from being in position to win the game.
Good game Huskies. You started out a little slow, but finished like champions.

Congratulations, Spence. Maybe someone thought the fans needed something for their money, and they got it. The hole was too big for the fourth quarter. I am glad the Huskies came close, much easier on the history. Still, the PAC 12 has a long way to go.

Thanks. Early in the game there were a lot of drops and I thought Petersen was uncharacteristically conservative. When he cut loose Washington played ball. Ohio State's offensive line has allowed pressure on Haskin's all year and if Haskin's has a vulnerability is that he gets very uncomfortable under pressure. Petersen is a very good coach. He will build something great at Washington. His players give everything for him.
