I look at it like this:

1. Penn State- Revenge game against a loaded PSU roster at home.  Unless they crap down their leg this year (which James Franklin is known to do when the pressure mounts), they should roll into Columbus as a very good squad.

2. Michigan- I know their roster got poached by the NFL, but at home, and they are still very talented.  Should be a war.

3. @ Iowa- The Hawkeyes are always tough at home.  This should be a scrap, but I think a game the Buckeyes should be fairly heavily favored.

4. Michigan State- Even at home, we know that Sparty will bring it's a-game against the Buckeyes, I don't care if they've lost every game heading into this matchup, they will fight tooth and nail.

5. Oklahoma- I'm not sure why people are so in love with OK this year?  They got plucked clean of all their RB talent, their best WR, and their QB is suspect at best even though he's played a million college games.  Their defense isn't going to be all that much improved, in fact they'll more than likely take a step back with a couple of key losses, and all signs are pointing to our offense being much improved under OC Kevin Wilson.  People that are picking OK to upset the Buckeyes seem quite misguided to me.

That's my top 5, and the gap between 1/3 and 4-5 is pretty significant IMO.

And that's kind of the split...  What is that ten million truly worth?  It seems like a drop in the bucket for an athletic department the size of OSU's.

I mean it's really as simple as ten million.  If Smith gives Matta the last year on his deal it bails the school out from having to fork over ten million bucks to buy out his contract.  After next season, Thad will be gone, and they can find the next guy.

I'm 33 years old, gainfully employed, own my home, have a child by my first wife who I take excellent care of.  Her dad thinks I'm the best thing that's ever happened to his daughter.  All is well.

I think after last year, how the team kind of "survived" some games they should've probably won outright with no question (MSU comes to mind), and how they lost to PSU, and then the beating from Clemson... I feel like this season is going to be a statement from the Buckeyes.  I think PSU will be the example.

That match-up with Penn State is looming large.  I feel like that game is kind of flying under the radar, but after last season's upset, I'm anxious to see how the team does against PSU this year.  I'm hoping for an absolute drubbing of the Lions.  We all know how Meyer feels after a loss.
