Yeah, i don't disagree with you at all. I know Urban is thinking to himself that priorities are 1. linebacker and 2. safety. These guys are definitely the weak link of our D. While we can't turn Ohrian Johnson into Kurt Coleman or MIke Doss, we can at least ask him to wrap.
And as much as i love Roby, I have watched him whiff on some of these posterized moments this defense has had this year. I keep watching ESPN replay the piss poor tackling clips from this season alone. I mean remember the Cal game and Michigan State and now Nebraska? We have highlight videos from half of one season that are worse than the previous 10 years combined.
I will say I am not sure the last time i remember watching an offensive player as exciting as Braxton at Ohio State. He's truly one of the 3 best players in the country and he's still learning the position! He's like a freshman and a half with no coaching last year.
You can't handle the truth
PapaJoe I'm with you. It was a great win, so I dunno if immediately after the win is the time to criticize, but, hell, if it's true, it's true anytime. The tackling is ABYSMAL. I think our Dline is solid and I think Roby is best athlete on D. Everyone else seems like MAC-level. Is it me or are our LBs wayyyy undersized. For comparisons sake I looked at Bama's LBs they are like 15-20 lbs heavier than ours on average. Perry came in and looked like a friggin cornerback. I've also never seen this many unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. There seems to be a lack of discipline, but our quarterback is soooooooooooo dynamic in the open field and our coach is Urban Meyer. 63 points? Almost 400 rush yards. I'll take it.

Im with you 100%, my post was after the Buckeyes were playing two hand touch with Taylor Martinez then i proceeded to get blasted with obscenities and names for the majority of this thread. I am happy and while it may not show because I refuse to back down from my comments, I am. The offense is lights out and amazing at times. Braxton to me is more exciting than Eddie George and Troy Smith. I love those guys, but Braxton is a human highlight reel.
Taylor Martinez is a pick machine and has been throwing stupid underthrown balls off his back legs for years and he bailed out our terrible start on offense. The safeties and linebackers use terrible angles and don't wrap up. With that said the future is bright, recruiting is going very well, and we can legitimately finish 12-0. But if any of you guys on here have any pride you are not happy watching our defense tackle like Oregon State. Our calling card for my entire adult life had been defense. Not anymore.
There is no ? that this is not a great Bucks def. like we are use to seeing everyone can see that. They do make plays though. With out those turnovers we would have been in more trouble early in the game. That pick 6 by roby was huge. John Simon was a beast tonight. Yea the tackling can be ugly at times but they do make plays. They gave up some points tonight but they did hold Neb. under there season avg. They came in as the #1 Offence in the big ten I think. Can't blame Luke for everything he's not on the field with these guys. A 25 point win is a 25 point win no mater how you look at it. It was a great great night to be a Bucks Fan and whole lot more of those to come. I'm not down voting you PapaJoe'sbeer because you have the right to think what you want. You come on here after a 25 point win and say theses things your going to get hammered ....GO BUCKS!!!!!

It wasn't after the game it was during our episode of two hand touch football.
that's funny as hell but it makes me thing Obama must owe you a fortune for BEING a fucktard
oooops, sorry. didn't mean to get all political., but c'mon OH, you can make the difference
You guys have been highly entertaining! Thanks so much for the laughs.
Fans like you are never happy. That was a great game last night against a good team. We won. And yet you still wanna bitch. Think about it. They're all supreme athletes. Every D1 players out there has more athletic ability than you could dream of. Yet you want to berate some of just because they don't make every play on the football field. Their 20 yr old kids and their not allowed to make any mistakes. We won 63-38 in an excellent and exciting environment. It was a TEAM win. If your not happy with the game played last night, you'll never be happy. Your not a fan. Fans cheer their team to victory. Your a hater. To all the hater out there I would love to come to your job for one day and point out every thing you do wrong.
You know nothing about me. I refuse to back down from my comments and while it may make me appear "bitter and angry," it's about me sticking to my observations and not being afraid of the down vote hyenas on this site. You didn't even bother to read the thread.
I've never said they aren't tremendous athletes. I have never said I could do better. But guess what, I wasn't gifted enough to get a football scholarship. That doesn't mean that I can't point out very poor tackling fundamentals on one of the most storied programs in college football history. My point is that linebacker and safety play is bad and NOT IMPROVING. That is coaching. Look what Urban has done for the offensive side of the ball in 1 damn year. Last year were were second to last in passing offense now we are throwing up 63 points on a top 25 team. What has the defense done? Given up embarrassing plays that they should make regularly or they shouldn't be on an upper eschelon team.
Come on hyenas!! Only -39??? You guys can do better than this!!!
