They also have different body types, and different coverage skills. Powell is taller than Burrows and Bell, and Burrows and and Powell are converted corners I believe and may have better cover skills than Bell, which is important in a Cover 4

I follow the logic. Yeah, if some team such as Bama, OSU or FSU recruit well, why shouldn't they continue to near the top of the preseason rankings? Especially if said team averages 10+ wins while reeling in top classes. I do agree people are downplaying the fact they have a new qb, but preseason rankings are based on talent on the roster, so I don't have a problem with someone using rankings of recent recreation classes as a factor.

I don't know why anyone would be shocked if Burrows started. He played as a true freshman unlike Apple and Conley, he was a top 100 recruit and has the size and cover skills you want in a cover 4 safety.

From what I understand from reading Ross and Kyle, and it seems like you are saying the same thing in reality, pattern matching frequently ends of being press man coverage in reality on the edges, and more often than not the safeties will be matching in man also when not crashing the run.

Wine drinkers aren't necessarily that sophisticated either, despite what some of them think of themselves. I see your point in regards to the masses.

Smith is not considered shifty. Meyer would not have been complaining about not having playmakers if Smith and Philly were shifty players.

As stated above, I don't believe Mauk's coach/dad and Jim Tressel had a good relationship from what I recall, and OSU didn't recruit his older brother if memory serves, so him coming to OSU wasn't going to happen.

Your premise is a joke. Mariota is a solid qb. Miller is good also but he is not winning a Heisman after an off season in which he has barely been throwing.

I am not sure what teams outside the current top 25 you would replace them with. There are lots of unproven teams in the top 25, and no glaring omissions in my opinion.

LOL true. I don't get all the Roby comments either. He is a tremendous athlete and I believe he will have a nice NFL career.

I think people are underestimating MSU ability to reload, which is natural. For example, you mention MSU lost 3/5 of their o line, but OSU lost 4/5 of theirs. They have a more experienced rb than OSU has. The back seven for OSU has issues also. Now I believe as a Buckeye fan that there will be improvements, but I think what gets lost is the improvements the Spartans will make. Cook should be better, and Narduzzi will have players ready to go. The game will be extremely tough especially on the road.

I would consider it questionable depth. I do not believe any have the guys have run for more than 250 yards in a season. It's not like OSU has guys returning like Bama, Wisky or Georgia who were all conference.

I thought that was Woodson in '97 in a game they lost?. I am getting old though.
