Not much to talk about with this one. It's hard to take much of anything from this game due to how terrible Eastern Michigan* is. The defense did allow 3 TDs, but I'm not really that concerned about that. The three plays that allowed Eastern Michigan to score were very well thrown passes. The coverage on those plays wasn't that bad, but the ball was placed well. The linebackers bit way too hard on play action several times, which exposed the young secondary which was missing Chekwa due to injury and that's what allowed Eastern Michigan to score.

The offense looked... well the offense put up 73 points. That's about it. Pryor threw for, ran for and caught touchdowns. The offense scored 10 touchdowns and only punted once.

I want to talk about running up the score though. I would say Ohio State ran up the score on the hapless opponent. Still passing the ball, and running the no huddle a few possessions into the forth quarter was poor sportsmanship. That was way out of character for Tressel.


Illinois looks like they're not too strong this. They got rid of Ron Zook and are installing a new offense. They are not really effective at all passing the ball. Ohio State shouldn't have a problem stopping their running game, which severely limits Illinois ability to do anything offensively.

The Illini defense is probably the strength of their team, but still isn't that great.

Ohio State 48
Illinois 10

Expect a few new parts to this post next week following week 5.

Thanks for reading and please comment.


*I seriously doubt Eastern Michigan would even be competitive in 1-aa**.
**I will call it 1-aa no matter the NCAA says it's called now. The new name implies Division with legitimate champion and division with illegitimate champion.
