The skinny on the OSU defense is that it being exposed by OUR OFFENSE. Gone are the days when the offense through scheme protected the defense by not putting it in bad field position. This is by no means a critic of the offense, it is doing what an offense should do and that is try to score touchdowns. This is a critic of the defense, man off corners in a soft zone may when a lot of games, but it does not win the big games as we all know by now. Championship defenses should be able to produce stops when placed in bad field position, and we certainly cannot do that right now. Aggressive offenses must be accompanied by aggressive defenses and although we have had highly ranked defenses in the past, it was in large part due to the offenses protecting it through play calling, which is no longer present. IMHO, Meyer offenses must be accompanied by progressive and creative defensive schemes if we want to win national championship.
