We have been saying this same thing for weeks:

"Ohio State's best play Saturday may have been the two-point conversion after the Posey touchdown. Pryor bootlegged and simply outran the Boilermakers to the pylon. Given the talent gap between the two teams, it stands to reason Ohio State could have dialed up similar plays quite a bit more throughout the game and come away with more than 13 first downs. But as long as Tressel insists on turning Pryor into Craig Krenzel, the offense will suffer."

"Pryor may not be the ideal quarterback, but he's still more talented than 99 percent of the players in America. Ohio State coaches need to stop trying to force him to be something he's not and embrace what he is. If they do that, they'll find their jobs, and Ohio State's games, a lot easier."

"Pryor may not be the ideal quarterback..."

might be a little generous on staples' end.

Nailed it. Sick of them turning him into something he is not!
