Wisconsin-Ohio State box score

Looking at the box score from the UW-Ohio State game just confirmed what was not hard to spot during the game. I'm not sure whether to be extremely frustrated and disappointed by this, or to be optimistic.

First downs: UW 22, OSU 8
Yards passing: UW 250, OSU 87
Total offensive yards: UW 368, OSU 184 (and that's with us losing 48 yards on sacks)
Total offensive plays: UW 89 (89!), OSU 40
Possession time: UW 42:47, OSU 17:13

How about these:

Average yards per kickoff return: OSU 34.8, UW 15.2
Interceptions-return yards-touchdowns: OSU 2-121-2, UW 1-13-0

-We had our first two fruitless trips into the red zone this year, breaks a nice streak.

-Montee Ball and Zach Brown didn't get many carries, but Ball did look much better on his chances. The TV sideline reporter said Brown had some sort of head injury. Ball entered the game when our line was clicking, and maybe Brown would have gained 6-plus yards a carry at that time. But it's hard to see how Brown stays at the top of the depth chart.

-Terrelle Pryor: 5-for-13, 87 yards, one interception, one touchdown. That's player of the year stuff.

-Scott Tolzien spread the ball around to 10 different receivers, pretty impressive ball distribution. Isaac Anderson did a nice job finding openings with six catches, but as noted yesterday, it should have been eight and one touchdown. Even a Kyle Jefferson sighting. Still waiting for a Kraig Appleton catch, there has to be a reason we burned his redshirt.

-Brad Nortman: 48.8 yards per punt, not bad.

-O'Brien Schofield is clearly our best defensive player and had another great game: two sacks, 3.5 tackles for loss. Who's our second-best defensive player? I think it's clearly Mike Taylor, who was around the ball a lot against OSU: team-high eight tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss. I love that our leading tackler is a freshman.

-Not much else to report from the defense, which was only on the field for 40 plays. The cornerbacks seemed to play well.

Optimistic? 89plays exclamtion point? 89 plays for 4.1 yards per play and 13 points (needing a block in the back on a fake field goal attempt to score your only TD). The only thing to be optimistic about is you don't have to play the Buckeye defense again this year.
