The Depth Chart for the Penn State Game

Penn State game depth chart.

It's been awhile since there wasn't a major change to Ohio State's depth chart, but this week is it. The only change from last week is Tommy Schutt listed as Michael Bennett's backup at defensive tackle.

Alright Tommy suit up brother!


Does anyone know how serious Michael Hill's shoulder injury is? I hope he can bounce back for next year.
Thought our DL took some lumps vs. Iowa but came away with a learning experience. Looking forward to see how they respond vs. PSU's OL.

Man its scary we're returning everyone on our DL next year

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

True. Kinda scary that only Decker returns on the O-line, though.

I don't think we'll see a huge drop-off on the offensive line. We have a good coach in place now. We should be able to reload much like Bama has done recently.

Reload? That's more like changing a magazine.

Kind of interesting i saw cam burrows in there quite a bit last week and hes not even on two deep. Good for him, could it of been because roby was out?

Was going to say the same thing.  Sometimes the depth chart is about as vague as Tressel-speak.

Perhaps, but he's also a hell of a lot more physical than Reeves, and they had him playing up on the line of scrimmage off of the tight end, dropping into a zone. I don't think Reeves would play there, and if that spot was Vonn Bell's, he would have been in there.
On a side note, I loved seeing that formation. I think that it was a 3-2-6 with Bosa/Bennett/Spence on the line and Shazier/Perry at LB. I think we'll see it a lot more against Penn State.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Not to sound stupid but since when has Adolphus been a back up? I knew Bosa has been playing well but didn't know he moved ahead of Adolphus. And is it due to poor performance or b/c he's been injured off an on this season?

See Maestro's comment above.

All of the D-linemen will see plenty of playing time.

Attention Penn State, notice that Dontre Wilson is not listed on the Offense depth chart, so you can relax and not worry about prepping for him.  :P

Am I the only one who cringes when I see Armani Reeves playing behind Roby?  I just want to kid to do so well...But I think someone else needs to step up to that spot.

As the saying goes, depth is great until you have to use it.

It would be nice to see Rod Smith take a few snaps each game. This would give Hyde a few more breaks, breathers, and rested legs.  Imagine hitting  a defense with two big, powerful, fast, backs with fresh legs, play after play.  (Or use him as a blocking back for Hyde or Miller.
I think this is a good way to wear down a defense and set us up for the deep pass.                                                                                                                                                Being that I live in Fort Wayne, Indiana now, I am a Rod Smith fan!  I would like everyone in college football to see what this kid is made of.  He can be a powerful back for us, which can throw a monkey wrench into the opposing teams defensive scheme..... (I think he has the fumbling of the ball, a thing of the past)   :)

I'd like to see more of Smith as well, but since El Guapo missed the first four games, he is pretty fresh at this point and is obviously ballin' out. That being said, I would still think they might want to give Carlos a blow now and then. You would think the carries would wear on him eventually.
