Ohio State’s offense took on some heavy-handed criticism this year for losing games to Penn State and Clemson as well as cutting it close against a bad Michigan State team. There was a lot more criticism for former offensive coordinator Tim Beck after the embarrassing shutout to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.
It was the first time that Urban Meyer had ever been shut out in a game and it was the first bowl game since 1920 that the Buckeyes had been shut out. Naturally, the offensive coordinator is going to blame for that, but former OSU OC and current Texas head coach Tom Herman thought otherwise.
It sounds like he’s implying the offense belonged to coach Meyer and that he should be taking the blame rather than Beck. Beck also recently just took a job with Texas to join up with Herman and become his offensive coordinator. Ohio State has already replaced him with former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson.
