Spying on my African Violet...

I love my african violet.  I good friend gave it to me.  I water and care for it like she told me.  I even got african violet food.  Unfortunately,  it does not produce any flowers!  It made me wonder if it was doing its part.  I was giving it light, water, and food but was it doing it's part -  working out and exercising its body and mind.  I worried that it might be playing video games and eating junk food all day while I was working so.. I decided to do a little reconnaissance and see what was happening.....

OSU loses to UCLA 86-73

OSU Women Stomp the Hornets of Alabama State 118 - 61: But can they handle U Conn?


The  13th ranked Buckeyes looked unstoppable last night causing to 70 points in the first half alone.   They face Undefeated Number 1 ranked U Conn next week which will be a magnitude greater challenge.  It will be a good test for this talented team.  U Conn is outstanding as usual. They beat Number 2 Notre Dame earlier this month.

Can Ohio State score on Clemson?

It is all up to the Offensive Line

O-Line
The two areas that I think will be challenged the most will by Clemson are the OSU offensive line with pass blocking and the defensive backs by a talented QB - Deshaun Watson and a strong receiver core led by Mike Williams.   Vic Beasley is gone to the Falcons but the front line of Dexter Lawrence, Christian Wilkins, Jabril Robinson, Clelin Ferrell, and Carlos Watkins have piled up 46 sacks.  
Clemson D-Line.jpg
Barrett makes things happen on broken plays but he also holds the ball too long and is a set up to take a sack if the o-line does not give him the time he needs.  OSU needs to start off with some quick short passes but then needs to extend the field vertically to open things up for Samuels and Weber.  If they are able to do that then watch out for big yardage on the QB draw.  
D-Backs
On the other side of the ball, our Defensive backs led by Conley and Lattimore at cornerbacks, need to contain the short yardage plays without giving up the long pass.  That is going to be tough.  Our linebackers need to help out across the middle and the D-line needs to put pressure on Watson to hurry his throws and get those INT's that were difference makers against Michigan.  If we don't - it will be a long day. 


Special Teams
Our special teams are a source of concern.  Cameron Johnston is a terrific punter for yardage but his technique makes him a target for blocks.  Our protection for punts and FG's is suspect.  The coaching decision to try a fake punt deep in our own territory almost cost us the game.  We cannot afford any miscues on special teams. 


Summary
Someone is going to have to step up and have a better then expected game for us to win.  I look for two areas to improve.  Defensive line.  We started to see them control the game in the second half against Michigan.  If they can get that kind of penetration against Clemson then Watson will have a long day.  The other performer is Mike Weber.  He has 100+ yes this year but has been second fiddle to Curtis Samuels lately.  Samuels will have a big game no doubt - but I think Weber is ready to bust lose.  Maybe not for big overall yards but for some significant plays when we need them .

Ohio State versus Clemson

Like Michigan,  Clemson wins games by stifling their opposition offense.  They will be sacking JT Barrett frequently if our O-Line does not perform better. Fortunately,  JT can scramble out of trouble and make big plays our of potential losses.  Our defense on the other hand has big play potential of their own with 7 TD's off INT's this year.  If we can force Clemson into passing consistently those opportunities will be there.
