We don’t want to beat the dead horse by any means, but because head coach Urban Meyer is, then we might as well follow suit. The offensive line is a major concern with this team.
Since the win over Navy this past Saturday, it seems to be all that many people can talk about, and rightfully so, to an extent. The new group did not play anywhere near close to what they should have. and should that keep up, a few losses in Big Ten play this season could end up being attributed to them.
Actually, according to Urban Meyer, if they don’t get it together soon, they’ll be getting beat at home this Saturday against Virginia Tech of the ACC.
“Concern number one is offensive line. We’re facing (what) will be one of the top one or two defensive lines we’ll face all year,” Meyer said Monday. “Our offensive line did not play like an Ohio State offensive line. The second half we played pretty good. But pretty good is not what we expect. You play pretty good this week you won’t win that game. So we have to get much better fast in the offensive line. “
He has a point. If there is an area of the Virginia Tech team that is a strength, it’s the defensive front. If that offensive line shows up like they did against Navy, it could be a long night.
