Another lesson to learn: COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS ALWAYS CHANGING!!
My wife and I were married December 3, 2010. She wanted to get married in November over Thanksgiving weekend. I promptly squashed those ideas as the date fell on The Game. We pushed it back one more week with my thoughts that The Game would always be the last game of the year for the Buckeyes falling either the Saturday before Thanksgiving or the Saturday after. Then 3 months after we were engaged, Jim Delany announced Nebraska was joining the Big 10 and a championship game would be added to the end of the season. Too bad our date was already set in stone by then. Now my wife wants to take an anniversary trip this year which would coincide with the Big 10 championship game in the inaugural year of the the college football playoffs with my Buckeyes a legitimate contender. FAIL.

Ohio State - 63

I agree Grant will be starting opposite Roby on Day 1, but he hasn't proven anything yet so far at OSU. With both Apple and Burrows enrolling early, it gives them all of spring/summer to learn the D and adjust to college play. Taking into account that and injuries, I think we see one of them stepping into a significant role somewhere in the D by year end. (see Malcolm Jenkins) And don't count out Burrows from taking away the STAR position. He has the size to fit that position and steal it away from Brown.
You were supposed to give your BOLD prediction, Buckeye80!
At least 10 underclassmen will be starting or getting meaningful snaps (>50% of the time) by the end of the year.
Duke - 75
Ohio State - 69
31 - 19
28 - 13 Buckeyes
66 - 10 Buckeyes. Illini TD comes in the 2nd half with 2nd stringers in. Braxton/Kenny G combine for 400 yards of offense and 7 TD's.
52-14 - Defense picks McMoxie 3 times (returns 1 to the house) and Penn St. goes all out to stop the run so Braxton throws for 300 yards for the first time in his career.
55 - 38 Buckeyes
55 - 3 Buckeyes
