It has been no secret for quite some time now that Ohio State has had plenty of struggles defensively throughout the last couple of years. The Oregon contest last Saturday — which saw the Ducks, led by junior running back C.J. Verdell, totally outclass the Buckeyes and pace their way to over 500 yards of total offense — just seemed to be where things boiled over.
There are plenty of questions that need to be addressed on that side of the ball going forward; Are coaching changes needed and/or inevitable now? Are they running the scheme that puts their guys in the best position to succeed?
