Ohio State vs. UCF Quick Wrap Up

The game was good and terrible to watch. There are some good thing to take away from the game but it’s clear OSU needs some work.

1. Braxton Miller isn’t Tim Tebow. I’d like to see Miller take less shots. He needs to go down rather than sacrificing his body. It’s week two Braxton…calm down.

2. Offense needs to be tightened up. Two many broken plays that resulted in at best Miller becoming Houdini and at worst OSU losing yards on 1st down.

3. Miller needs to do a better job of reading the option. There were far too many times he read the play incorrectly resulting in a loss of yards.

4. Too many penalties that made thing difficult for a Buckeye offense still learning. Dumb procedural penalties that didn’t happen and can’t happen with a young, green offense.

5. Braxton Miller is incredible. Absolutely gifted football player who is still clearly learning how to play his position.

6. The OSU secondary picked off Bortles 3 times, but that doesn’t sugar coat the fact that there is a real problem in the back 7. Communication seems to be an issue as multiple blown coverages lead to TD passes and big plays that kept drives going.

7. Injuries are concerning…Howard and Hyde both in street clothes early on.

8. With less that a minute left why was OSU running the football. Take a knee and end the game. Absolutely terrible clock management that resulted in a fumble by an inexperienced running back.

Full review to come later.

Thanks to ESPN for the stats.
