Indiana-OSU Open Thread

for having to endure the pain of moving from a Kevin Wilson offense to a Mike DeBord offense.

MOD EDIT - I am going to preempt the OP and turn this into the game's open thread. Sound OK? - LSA

I just realized that if Wilson is at Ohio State long term he might recruit and develop actual recievers there. Indiana has seemingly an unending supply of underrecruited NFL caliber recievers.

but he had to have something to do with or at least picked up by osmosis some of this Indiana WR mojo.  As I write this Simmie Cobbs, the 974th ranked player in his class(247 composite), just Moss'd probable 1st round pick Denzel Ward.  If Ohio State gets a legitmate passing game they might become unbeatable.

I think the original gameplan was to have #3 Damon Arnette (6'0") cover Sammie Cobb Jr. (6'4"), but Cobb was absolutely wrecking Arnette. So they experimented by switching their best corner Denzel Ward (5'10") to Cobb Jr., but the height different was too much.

Ward actually seemed to have pretty good coverage on Cobb from a technical standpoint, but didn't have the length to high point the ball like Cobb did.

as has, to a lesser extent, Webb.

Baker can't cover and will be eaten alive by UM's TE's.

UM should go to a lot of multiple TE sets as OSU doesn'thave anuone who can hang with them.
