Chuck Landon grades the Herd

Chuck Landon Grades The Herd … Ohio 27, Marshall 24

OFFENSE: C- -- Three turnovers, no running attack and only 24 points on nearly 500 yards.

DEFENSE: C – It has to improve against the run and avoid meltdowns like in the second quarter.

SPECIAL TEAMS: C- -- Punter Tyler Williams was superb, but allowing a 41-yard kickoff return wasn’t.

COACHING: D – Hitching racehorse running backs to plows and gearing a defense to stop horizontal passing attacks isn’t the answer.

OVERALL: F – Losing to Ohio in Huntington for the first time in 35 years isn’t acceptable.
