The Offense came out firing. This is something that we haven't seen in quite some time. The Buckeyes actually scored on their opening drive. When it seemed that all was going well the offense relapsed. It went back into its usual shell and only did enough to win the game. This is extremely disturbing to me. I can't understand why this team plays not to lose instead of playing to win. The Buckeyes badly need to reverse this trend in order to survive the next few weeks
Grade - C
The defense played well, but not great. We know what this defense is capable of. I think that the defense can take over a game if they want. Giving up over 400 yards to Northwestern just isn't going to cut it. The scary part is Michigan can score the football seemingly at will. This defense will need to be absolutely locked in for that game.
Grade - B-
Surely this is a forgettable game. The Buckeyes only beat a mediocre team by 4. Still the weirdest part was Urban acting like this was a big win.
