I really really hope so because the quiet work Doran Grant did to shut down his side of the field including top-10 pick Amari Cooper was criminally underrated - that doesn't just happen.  And it was just 18 short months ago we were watching Sammy Watkins destroy our bowl dreams by taking screens for 40 yards

It's really really hard to stop 1st round draft pick wide receivers, especially with college rules.  If we want to repeat we're going to have to stop some really good wide-outs and safeties like Vonn Bell, as good as they may be, are too far away from the line of scrimmage to do it themselves.  I'll be watching the young corners intently because they are my biggest question mark.  Can sophomore Eli Apple go from having Michigan score touchdowns on him to shutting down the best of the best in the 2015 post season?

I'm not a fan of 2 QBS either. I find fans tend to think there's more plays in a game than thee really are. There aren't 200 offensive snaps for you to split up between barrett, cardale, braxton, elliott, marshall, etc. Etc. There's only 45-55 per game. Consistency and being perfect at those 45-65 snaps is more important than anything, that's why I like 1 QB.

I'm more worried about CB than any other position group.  I think Dorean Grant's accomplishments last year have been really looked over and the "next man up" doesn't always just replace that excellent production.

After all, it wasn't that long ago we had to watch Sammy Watkins take every screen thrown his way for 30 yards.  Eli Apple wasn't exactly a world beater last year and Gareon Conley had to be pulled in the middle of a game.

I retain my belief in the process at Ohio State to bring along young players and turn them into stars but while I love our safeties I'll be holding my breath about our corners until after the Virginia Tech game.

I can't imagine a Buckeye football player trying to survive on any less than $20k in personal and transportation expenses per month.  MAKE IT HAPPEN URBAN!

Agreed, with Marshall sidelined Wilson would have had the opportunity to give a blow-out performance in a revenge game in the first game of the season at night on national television.  If a player performs big on a big stage Meyer doesn't hesitate to make that person a starter.

But instead of reclaiming his starting job, he threw away the opportunity and now gives Braxton a chance to knock him back to 3rd string on the h-back depth chart.  I think Wilson really blew it here.

Just taking this moment to give a mention to all the readers who down voted my comments saying this was likely to happen and not the worst thing in the world. Those of you who down voted me know who you are and should keep in mind just because the truth isn't seen through scarlet-colored glasses doesn't mean you should DV some one because they speak it.

I don't even understand how this is negative recruiting.  "If you go play for that Urban Meyer guy and you break the rules he'll punnish you!  Can you believe that!  Who wants to be on a team where you know that you and your teammates are going to be held accountable to high standards by a guy who's proven he knows what it takes to get to the top of the mountain."
