ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit was asked about the team’s struggles on offense, and had an interesting take.In short, he isn’t impressed with either Ohio State’s ability to stretch the field or how its offensive line is playing. He doesn’t blame the play-calling of the coaches.Think when you struggle to throw the ball downfield and you can’t blow people off the LOS you’re handcuffed as a play caller. https://t.co/b0ENbdodjY— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) October 23, 2016This lines up, at least partially, with what head coach Urban Meyer had to say following the loss.Urban Meyer: “Offensively, we didn’t control the line of scrimmage.”— Tim Shoemaker (@TimShoemaker) October 23, 2016Ohio State started the season on fire but hasn’t looked quite itself the past two weeks.
