OSU got nothing from the D line last night.  

Our play makers are just as good as theirs.  


Surely got outcoached.  Bama and all their little trick plays and shovel passes fooled us.

Bama's offensive talent is head and tails better than the talent on our defense this year. Unless they make lots of big mistakes, they score a lot on this defense. Period.


There are no coaching tricks in the world that makes last night a game.

Bama has much better skill players this year than OSU, especially in the defensive backfield. OSU was clearly the second best team in the country this season, but it is just one of those years where the gap between #1 and #2 was extremely large.

Which OSU WR won the heisman and will likely be drafted in the top few picks?

To give CC accidental credit, the tOSU receiver room has more depth than Bama. However, your point is by far the larger one.

Maybe if you go past players who actually see the field.

Bama is gonna have 2 guys taken before Olave. And Metchie will be taken pretty high when he comes out as well. 

If you want to not include Waddle cause he didn’t play, ok. But I can’t get on board with someone saying they have more depth when the top 2 alone are better than Olave.

See the field this year, perhaps. Some of the AYOs will be 1st round picks in a couple of years, and Smith-Njigba is better today than either guy you mentioned. Right now.

Things are getting ugly in Ann Arbor. This sure looks bad. But I hate when someone isn't here to defend themselves.

I guess so.  Contrasting this with Penn State, the key players were around to answer the accusations - even Paterno before he died.  The problem here is that Bo's long gone.  If there was abuse, it is bad.  But the problem with automatically believing the accusers without the accused even being present to give a defense is that it's a very slippery slope to "anyone can say anything they want".  I'm not saying that's the case here, but who the hell knows the facts here.  Bo's son hated his guts.  Maybe that's becuase he was abused and not protected by his father.  But maybe it's due to something else and that's at work here.  Same for the former players.  Maybe they were abused and protested to Bo.  But maybe they hated him for reasons we'll never know.  Unless someone can corroborate these stories, there will never be a resolution.  If that's true, than anyone dead is fair game to a similar fate.
