Buckeye Leaves and Peeves From Ohio State's 51-10 Win Over Indiana
There is good and bad in every game. Some games have more good than bad, and some games have more bad than good. And some games begins with a missed field goal and that's about the last bad thing that happens for that team. This feature is about acknowledging both the bad and good, or whichever stood out to us most. Borrowing from Ohio State’s practice...
Thanks for the peeve Michael. It needed to be said.
My peeve is that supposed reputatable sports writers, who never see practice, think they know more about who should play than 2 sets of D coaches. Oh right, coaches play popular players because they are interested, not in winning, but in riling up the fan base...Stupid take, Michael.
You're both wrong. The season will show it.
No peeves here. The Buckeyes easily handled a nominal Indiana team as it should be and they are looking solid and balanced in every facet. A big Buckeye leaf for Chase Young. I'm naming him MVP right now. Fields did great and deserves a leaf too. He looks pretty good so far. The schedule has been especially kind to a new QB. My only peeve is that we play Miami U. next and that should have been the second game. It's going to be an exercise in breaking records against another weak team that needs the cash. Boring and meaningless. That will change soon enough. No Buckeye leaves for the Big Ten's weak showing so far. Buckeye leaves for the coaches though. They seem to have a clue unlike last year.
A post-game leaf for Justin Fields who recognized that he did not have a good game passing, said so publicly and said that he will work hard to get better. That is the sign of a mature, level-headed team leader.
I hope I do get proved wrong. And, indeed, the season will show it.
You don't have to watch practices. Look at the game film. And if you think that coaches at all levels don't show favoritism to certain players then you are naïve.
