Describe OSU’s pass defense in a word against Indiana? Urban Meyer choose the word ‘awful’ after the secondary allowed 420 yards through the air, 149 of which were reeled in by big Simmie Cobbs. Meyer elaborated his frustration, “Our defense was exposed big-time in the first half….Our pass defense was awful. It was not complicated. They were just picking on the corners. The corners have got to step up.” Bill Rabinowitz with more.
Will it be No. 1 Alabama or No. 3 FSU to start the season 0-1? How bad will That School Up North look in all maize uniforms against Florida? Week 1 offers a tasty buffet of match-ups, prior to a loaded Week 2 slate. Kick back, and enjoy. It’s great to have college football back.
