As a Buckeye fan, we needed everything to go right. Having to deal with Devante Smith for only a half would be one thing for starters.
How he wasn't double teamed the second he got off the bus is beyond me. I get it Sark schemes ways to free him up but I would play like a gunner on the punt team. Take your chances with Harris and Metchie.
Fields missed some throws as well, missed an easy TD to Wilson that would have tied it at 21. He doesn't see the field well at times but the pressure was on him, especially after Davis went out and Barmore feasted. I've seen some mocks with the Vikes grabbing Barmore.
Conversely Jones was playing 7 on 7 drills out there.
Would have been nice to get Olave involved, curious to see if Surtain simply erased him. Garrett Wilson is going to be a very good receiver, should have tried to take some shots with him.
Congrats to Bama, this might be the best team Saban has assembled. They won every game by two scores, save for the SEC championship but that required a last minute TD by the Gators. They lost Waddle and still put up historic numbers.
