hard to not like where this team is headed after arguably the toughest stretch of the season behind us. What my question for the 11w community is, how does OSU stack up with the rest of the country (namely, Bama)? Obviously our offense is top-class. But when I look to the defense, I see a lot of players who are developing, and who will need to continue to improve for us to beat the likes of Alabama. This question is aimed at the more well-rounded CFB fan; is the whole development argument true for the likes of Bama? What I mean is, when you read 11W, our fans are always looking to nitpick, which is only natural. But I've stayed mostly out of the national press, because frankly, most of it's not great, and we've been spoiled by 11W's outstanding coverage.
tl;dr The buckeyes are, in my mind, a team that is still a work in progress. Is that the case for the likes of Alabama?
