Ld is definitely better this year and deserves to start. Ld is nothing like Carson. Carson was tough and would make you pay for tackling. Chuba really isnt doing well so far. Last year he was so patient and this year he isnt patient and is weak handed
He also is no longer under the radar. Maybe it's unrelated but I (and others) wonder how much of his performance is related to the energy spent on issues off the field. May not have the slightest impact, but the thought has crossed my mind.
Honestly, it feels like Chuba has checked out. If that is true he should just opt out of the season and move on because it hurts him and OSU. He is actively hurting his draft stock right now and he needs to s#!+ or get off the pot.
I say this with no malice and honestly wanting the best possible for him.
