If a bye week has taught me anything, it’s that I actually pay more attention to my work when we have one! I’m taking the opportunity to combine Rumblin, Stumblin, Bumblin with #tBBCFansInteract this week due to no special guest. Busy lives take away from peoples fun time and I cannot blame them for that. Let’s get started with the fans interaction from the Nerdwestern game which will play right into my Rumblin this week.

If there’s one thing that has been a hot topic all this past week with regards to the Ohio State offense, it has been the fact that they scored 76 points on a highly inferior opponent in FAMU. At one point in the first half it was pretty obvious that the Buckeyes could have done anything they wanted to, and did as Kenny G set a new single game record of 6 TD passes ….all in the first half.
There are two theories that were being argued. First, why were the Buckeyes playing FAMU and second, why run up the score?
Ohio State continues to make efforts to improve their non-conference schedule. It’s a process that can’t get done overnight. With the playoff system right around the corner though, the athletic department will do what it can to make the proper changes to the schedule.
Their fate at the end of every season after this year could depend on it.
Secondly, running up the score pays dividends in huge ways for the team. You get to see the future unfold with a game from freshman Ezekiel Elliot, who found his way into the record books Saturday. It’s also an opportunity for a lot of walk-ons to do everything they can to secure some type of playing time throughout the rest of the season.
My favorite part of the team rumblin’ last week was the effort put forth by the coaching staff to keep them engaged past the first quarter. The Buckeyes are scoring early and often and we have seen it drop off considerably after the first fifteen minutes. They kept the intensity up on both sides of the ball and really sent a message that it didn’t matter who they were playing, they were keeping the foot on the proverbial throat.
