Huskie Quick Recap

Want to start off with a tip of the ole cap to Northern Illinois. Chip Minnich and I discussed on our MotSaG Podcast about the Huskies, them defeating other Big Ten teams. Heck in my game preview I showed how they have a better record than the Maize and Blue. Did that mean we thought the Buckeyes would escape with a seven point victory, thinking no.

The Silver Bullets are the real deal. I mentioned the keys of the game for Ohio State was to limit turnovers against the high powered offense of Northern Illinois. They didn’t, handing the Huskies the ball five times. The Buckeye defense held firm only giving up ten points from the turnovers. Darron Lee had a nice interception for a touchdown – the difference in the game.

Ohio State threw for a touchdown. Kept winning streak alive (16). No injuries.

Not so positive
In my opinion Cardale Jones lost his job as the starting quarterback. J.T. Barrett came in, in a drive threw for a touchdown to Michael Thomas. Unfortunately Barrett wasn’t any more efficient than Jones.

Buckeyes last week stopped their passing for touchdowns, this week they snapped a streak of rushing touchdowns that was just as long. Offense is out of sync or as head coach Urban Meyer called it, discombobulated. We can sadly say the Buckeyes aren’t complacent, they are having offensive issue (big issues).

Looks like we will have to sleep on this game then start breaking it all down for you this next week. Western Michigan is their next opponent. Sorry short on words but the alleged record breaking high powered offense is not there.
