Honestly folks, OSU fans need to "pump the brakes" as much as anyone in the country. We have a crap load of talent to replace and there is an amazing amount of unpredictability in how players will develop and step up in the role of being "the man". Yes, we have recruited well and the talent is there on paper, but that is really the only place it is. There will be nearly 50! freshman or RS freshman on OSU's roster this fall. That is not simply a situation where a fan base should expect to simply reload. It does an incredible disservice to the ability of other players around the country and the conference who have developed their talent over more time.
Now, what I have written should not be interpreted as "we WON"T" win the B1G or get to a national championship playoff, but I would certainly think it ill advised to go into the season expecting it or presuming another win over TTUN just because we stomped them last year.
