I have watched OSU games for many many years. I have seen OSU teams that have struggled at times ..and it was usually the offense struggling. I am hard pressed to remember a worse defense than what I have seen in the past 2 years. It is painful to watch Doran Grant looking lost, Curtis Grant not playing because he does not know his position, and the lack of a cohesive unit. The problem has to be somewhere between the talent we recruit, the coaching up of players, the schemes used during the game, The ability of our defensive coaches to teach the game, or some other factors. I am sure i am NOT the only one who feels as if something is wrong...very wrong!!!
I would like to see Bucknuts do a full Front Row Radio segment devoted SOLELY to the defense. I do not want politically correctness , but very hard hitting SPECIFIC analysis of each part of the defense and why it is not performing. It was obvious that Urban Meyer is as concerned as anyone if you watch his body language and facial gestures during the post game interview. I would love Duane, Dave, Steve, and whomever has expertise to join in on an analysis..with no holds barred!!!!!!!!
Good idea and would be a very interesting topic, if done thoroughly.
However, it will be difficult for the Bucknt Staff, due to what appears to be the universal love and respect personally for Luke Fickell. It is always hard to be critical of "the good guy". And, even more so, due to the inflated level the Staff and many loyal Buckey fans took Fickell''s ability or perceived them to be.
I have posted in the "Grant" thread and addressed this. Meyer will make the change at the end of the year.
But, while a great idea, do not expect the Staff to "touch this".
Consider it done.
Look forward to it.
Myself, and I am sure most "Bucknutters" really support you and all of the Bucknuts Staff.
While we all are Buckeye Fans at heart, live and die with the ups and downs, there is no doubt your ability to go after things that will have a "head wind" in your face (eg. not popular critiques of coaches, et al) is what sets you and Bucknuts apart.
Good luck on "walking this plank". Buckle up and go after it.
My best to you.
I'm just disappointed that some people think FRR is "politically correct" to begin with. We let it fly pretty good on there. As any of our 8 loyal listeners would vouch for.
loyal listener here and you guys for sure bring it with class too. very good show and love it
when dave biddle is writing about how he wants bo pelini you know its time for a change hahaha. never have the bucknuts staff said anything about a change until last night and i love it. i hope urban makes it happen the hell with a two year plan fickle just isnt the guy, this is ohio state we deserve better and can get better. i too hope nebraska gets dumb and lets bo go and we scoop him up
BTW, this show is coming at you tomorrow morning.
Dave...thank you. I will bet that tomorrow's show will not only be one of the best that you have had but also one of most listened to. I appreciate you and the Bucknut's staff dissecting the situation. Many in Buckeye nation are very very concerned about our Defense. I want my silver bullets back! Thanks again!!!!!!
How awesome is that? Request a segment, the staff responds, and not only agrees to do it, but will do it the NEXT DAY. Bad ass.
I will be listening to that for sure!!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Does my post referencing "The Loyal 8" have exactly 8 upvotes right now? Oh you know it does. (No coincidence. Ha.)
You guys will enjoy this show. I'll have it posted at 8 a.m.
Might be the biggest FRR listening crowd ever.
Edit: you can count me in on this. I too hope the guys on FRR are critical when need to be. No need to beat around the bush. I just want to hear honest assessments from the best guys in the biz! We are all frustrated and I say just let your thoughts go without worry!
