This will be your thread for snowflakes and hot takes regarding the offense and offensive playcalling in our game versus Indiana.

Before all the overreactions flow in Ill say Im not worried about this. We scored all but 1 time. Its an anomaly that we had to kick FGs and a bit of a blessing that we saw our kick game straightened out a bit. We are going to need it down the road.

If we are going to beat Ohio State, it's going to rest on the shoulders of the Offense.

The Defense has been feasting on bad QBs this season.  That won't happen next week.

We're not going to beat Ohio State 17-10 like it's the 1970's.  The Offense needs to score points and not just field goals.

We CAN NOT dick around for two quarters while the Offense finds itself.  We need to make drives pay off.

I've gotten to a point where I watch a game against Indiana and I am honestly not sure what to think about any phase of the game in that particular game.

Then, in this case, I remember that I watched most of Ohio State-Maryland and OSU gave up 51 to Maryland. 

I still sort of like our chances in an equally impressive and infuriating WTF game in Columbus for some reason, but I will say that I would rather it wasn't all put on the leg of Jake Moody. There are definitely a few things to work on.

Very vanilla. There is a reason you didn't see anything special when they got close to the redzone or were in it. I anticipate the bucs staff going back over every offensive play of Harbaugh's for the past 15 years and then some. The obsession will no doubt lead to exhaustion of their staff. No preparation will save them though from the hammer that's about to get dropped on them.

Post-game interview:


"So, <random Michigan offensive player | clock management coordinator | play-caller>, your word this season is FINISH, what does that mean to you?"


"Well... I guess a good post-game sauna, and maybe we're flying to Helsinki for next year's spring trip."

Then again,, there was that throw in the middle of the field to DPJ where I know I saw Tarik Black speeding right down the sidelines wide open...I kinda hate that's on tape now.

The play calling in red zone is head scratching at best. The play calling kept Indiana in this game. If half of those red zone opportunities were turned into touchdowns this would be blow out. That play calling will cost you game at OSU.

A FB dive can technically be a touchdown if everyone blocks better and the FB makes the right moves. But that doesn't mean it's the right play call on 4th and 20. The point is that you need to make play calls that put your players in the best situations possible for them to be as successful as they can on that down. For the most part, Jeff Brohm does that if you wanna see a good example of what that looks like
