Ohio State continues to be their own worst enemy in blowout loss to Purdue

Give credit to the Boilermakers, but almost all of Ohio State’s problems are self-inflicted.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Show Notes

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.
