We have special athletes too ..... like Ted Ginn when he returned the opening kickoff in that game against Florida ...... but then the rest of the game we just were a step behind weren't we?
I attribute this to DC Mike Fickel. The fact that he is still on staff is baffling beyond belief. You have to put your team in a position to succeed. How many times did Clemson have to run that receiver screen before Fickel figured out, 'gee, maybe we ought to play a different scheme to handle that.' We were outcoached in that game when our D was on the field.

BTW, Shazier is a stud and has proved it at the next level.

"Shazier is a stud and has proved it at the next level"

yes, ... I am a fan .. and thought he was great .. but at against Clemson, not great, and that applies to his team-mates as well. Don't forget Heyward, and Vrabel ... we have studs .... we also have a pretty darn good BCS record, but .... in the Championship game we had some visible losses, just like Bob Stoops in Oklahoma.

Not my intent to bash my favorite Buckeyes, and I am not a huge SEC fan ... but I do love the discussion ... have a great birthday.

What many Big10 and Big12 (-3) fans simply don't understand about the SEC and speed is that the comparison is not among the skill players. Everybody has fast receivers and running backs. The SEC speed is in the defensive line and linebacker corps. That is where the speed of the SEC shows.

The SEC players are bigger, stronger and faster as a unit than their counterparts from other conferences.
