I think it's a toss-up between the o-line and the secondary. I'm confident coach Warriner will shape a solid offensive line by this fall. Obvious questions are: How will Decker handle the left side? How will incoming senior, Chad Lindsay, adjust to the new offense? Will Pat Elflein pick up where he left off? Who are the remaining two to step it up? Baldwin? Underwood? By some long shot will Joel Hale surprise people? Who knows? As the optomistic Buckeye that I am, I feel confident in Warriner. I mean, How could you not?

The question I have for the secondary, is will the new press coverage work as well as we all hope? I think it absolutely will. Ash is an absolute game changer, and I think we finally get to showcase that ridiculous athleticism we've been stockpiling. Each unit definitely has their question marks, but I think both will prove above and beyond their expectations this fall.

Cases can be made for the WRs and LBs too. With the exception of Corey Brown, the WR play was underwhelming at times last season. Devin Smith is our only proven threat at the WR if you want to go by the numbers. Jeff Heurmen will be a threat from the TE spot, no doubt, but we're talking WRs here. We all know Smith can drop passes at times. Does Dontre bust out this year? Will Spencer, Thomas, Green, Smith, Marshall, bust out? So much potential, just waiting for that "Next Man Up".

I think the linebackers will make or break the flow of this defense next season. If Curtis Grant can FINALLY FRIGGEN groove in the new defensive scheme that is systematically designed for his style of play, the rest of the LB core will follow suit. Perry can ball, just needs to work on his coverage. I think Darron Lee and Chris Worley will prove to be solid contributors. Another big question is what will unfold with Raekwon? Does Grant solidify that MLB spot? Or does the young bull beat out the old bull? TIme will tell...

Oh, and as for DL, TE, RB, K, P, and QB, we're good on that...

Just keep my dude Braxton Miller upright. OK, offensive line?

That dude captured Sabans' annoyed-arrogant-elitist vibe down to a T. Lol! That was an absolute spot-on impression. HUGE week in recruiting coming up for the Buckeyes. Here's to landing those 14 stars come Wednesday! #TOSU

I worked the wave pool, lazy river, and a few of the slides throughout the coarse of the summer. I gotta say I hardly ever yelled at people. Odds are I was hungover and yelling was just not an option.

When I was in college a buddy and I were life guards for a summer at Cedar Points water park. This was ten years ago and I can see not much has changed. It's a total party when you work there. You work during the day and party almost every single night. It's was one crazy summer I'll tell ya that. Not too many 3am brawls though.
