JK Dobbins is a freak.

Have you seen that kid’s arms?! (Off topic: He seems like a good kid too). It will be a challenge to contain him. We gotta tackle well.

Ask every Elite running back we faced in the last 3 or 4 years how that works out for them and get back to us then

We dont have the DL we have had in the past, so it will be interesting to see. We have not faced a balanced talented offense this season yet.

He looks good against the slow defenses in the B1G. Ask Zeke Elliott how that worked out for him. 31-0

Elliott wasn't playing for OSU when we beat them 31-0.

You’re right, he was on that 2013 squad. Thanks for the heads up

Zeke absolutely destroyed Bama and Oregon in 2014

He was only a FR in 2013 and did not even get a snap against us. Carlos Hyde was their primary back in 2013.

If they can slow down a 250 lb AJ Dillion they can slow down. 210 lbs Dobbins.

That weight is not the issue. Its that we cant play the same D we played vs Dillon. Ohio State is too balanced.

I know OSU is better than BC but I'd disagree. I think we'll most likely play a similar gameplan and see if they can make plays. OSU's receivers are not the best in the world. I could see Venables focusing on stopping the run and maybe leaving a safety high and playing man on the outside.

He's tiny though. He's listed at 5'10 but I'm guessing he's 5'8 max.

Big arms don't translate to strong runners.

You are confusing lack of height with tiny. He is actually a perfect size for NFL teams.

The Key to beating Ohio St

Will be slowing down Dobbins. Dobbins is their sun. He is the light that ignites the offense. Not Feilds, and certainly no other player on their offense. In no way am I saying that Ohio St doesn't have other good players. I am saying that no other player is as important to the offensive success for Ohio St, as Dobbins certainly has become.

Isiah Simmons will be the key to slowing down the Buckeyes offense. Number 11 will lead the charge for this Tigers defense. One thing is for certain and I can't empathize this enough, Ohio St has not seen or played against aa skilled of an athlete as they will face in Simmons. If Simmons has a huge night, then that would mean that the Ohio St fans will be in for a long cold night.

The Ohio St defense isn't as vaunted as most perceived and they will have issues, amongst issues, themselves against Trevor Lawrence, Etienne, Higgins, Ross and company. Ohio St has a great corner in Okuda, but he cant cover more than one receiver at a time on any given play. I think Patrick Surtain Jr was a very good corner for Alabama last season, who was rendered ineffective mainly because the Tigers exposed Savion Smith as a fraud. I'm not sure if the Buckeyes other corner is Savion-esqe or not, but they will have a long night for sure.

Slowing down Dobbins and containing Young will be the two most vital keys for Clemson. The difference here is that Clemson has the athletes and the coaches to get the job done. For those so-called Clemson fans who are Buckeye Nutthuggers that always clamor to vindicate Ohio St, I know it wont be easy. The one thing this coaching staff always seems to do in big games is....make it look easier than it really is.

Don't underestimate Dobbins and write him off because of whatever happened in past years. If we don't tackle our best, it won't go well.

If Fields is back to full health, we also have to contain him on pass plays, especially on 3rd down.

Dobbins is fantastic, but alone he doesn't really worry me

If Fields is healthy in 3 weeks and is able to run like he could over the first 8-9 games of the season, OSU's running game goes up to another level. If Field's isn't able to be part of OSUs running game i think we will win.

Its going to be scary. Dobbins is great and he catches the ball well too. Some mock drafts have him in the 1st round of the NFL draft. This is going to be a great game. Guys like XT are going to have to step it up. Can't wait.

He and young are their best players by far***
