Little-to-no success running.
Poor red zone offense.
A defense that looks lost, and has a penchant for allowing massive plays.
Getting severely out-coached.
These are just a few of the problems Ohio State’s had this season, and every one of them came crashing down in the Buckeyes’ 49-20 blowout loss to Purdue.
On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and I talk through the loss, why it falls on Urban Meyer’s inability to adjust, and how it was obvious that something like this was going to happen.
2:30- Urban Meyer’s familiar post-loss reaction
6:26- Why saying “This is the Iowa game all over,” is misguided
11:00- Not being able to run/having no balance are the root of the offensive issues
14:00- It’s clear that most of Ohio State’s coaches aren’t up to par, and it’s Meyer’s fault
16:15- Not adjusting the game plan has neutered the offense, and made them their own worst enemy
31:23- Is this the low point of the season? Or will it get worse?
33:30- Why does it always have to take a loss for things to be changed?
38:17- We aren’t here for Ohio State College Football Playoff talk right after they lost to Purdue by 30.
