Marshall isn't leaving the starting rotation until he is playing in the NFL.  The couches have started getting him more involved in the offense in the last three weeks, and he has looked great.  The one thing that really makes me a believer is his ability to run between the tackles.  If the H-Back is a threat to run inside, outside, or catch the à la Percy Harvin, Meyer's spread offense can be run to its full potential.  While he doesn't have Dontre's raw speed, Marshall is a more violent runner (With some throwing ability to boot) who defensive coordinators will have no idea how to deal with (When Wilson is lined up at running back it seems safe to say the ball is going to the outside of the field).

A player should never lose his job because of an injury, but Dontre is going is still going to find plenty of touches in an offense where positions and titles are basically meaningless and he can still be a great player.  But I'm a big believer in Marshall being the non-quarterback player our offense is going to revolve around for another year or two.

This was my freshman year at OSU as well.  You can say whatever you want about what happened off the field, but this was one of the all time great recruiting classes at Ohio State.

I think Ohio State is capable of beating any of Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State.  We should not be favored in any of those games though.  That being said I like our odds against FSU and Oregon waaaaaaaaaay more.  

 

I don't buy all the SEC hype, but I definitely buy the Alabama hype.  All of the ​1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th year players were members of the consensus number one recruiting class.  They have one of the absolute best coaches in the history of the sport (We do too; Oregon and Florida State do not).  They have a senior quarterback who is going to have 40 starts going into their bowl game (Assuming they win the SEC West).

Bosa is Cam Heyward 2.0. Giant, incredibly strong DE/DT who makes a big impact as a freshman. Hope he can be as good (or better) than Cam in his next few years at OSU.

Two things

1)  6 feet 4 inches tall and with a 6-foot-9-inch wingspan:  That's insane

 

2)  PG – Shannon Scott (Sr.) / Russell (Fr.):  Can't believe thiis is the last year with Aaron Craft.

"Imagine a high octane Oregon type offense paired with an SEC-caliber defensive line, LBrs, secondary, all infused with some Buckeye attitude!"

 

This is exactly what I had in mind when Meyer came on board one and a half years ago.  Hopefully Wilson or one of the other many explosive freshman can add another play a threat to go the distance on every play to the offense (Braxton) because that's about the only thing missing from what could be the best offensive attack the Buckeyes have had in a long time.

I think some people may be nervous about offering a pro-style quarterback because of how John Brantley turned out at Florida.  It's important to remember that he (Brantley) primarily failed at Florida because he was a bad player.  A pro style quarterback can excel in Meyer's offense as long as they aren't a total statue in the pocket.

I don't think you can really call OSU's win yesterday an upset; we were favored by 3.5 points.  The Big Ten season has proven it's almost impossible to win on the road against the top teams in the conference, and the order of the top five teams (Excluding Indiana who is pretty clearly number one IMO) is incredibly fluid.

Comment 19 Jan 2013

Tough loss, but it's not easy to win on the road in this conference.  Thomas is a player of the year candidate, and there isn't a team in the country that can come close to matching the ammount of pressure this team can bring on defense.

Comment 15 Jan 2013

He should easily average 20+ points on a team that will float between ten and twenty for most of the year.  Combine that with playing on a team with as much media exposure as Ohio State and you have an easy All American with a solid shot at the first team.

The story of the 2013 retruiting classes of Ohio State and Michigan is the story of the Tortoise and the Hare.
