I love Devin's big play ability.  I would love to see him develop into a complete pass catcher.  The last 2 years he's had the drops on the simple passes.  But one thing is for certain, he's got all the ability and talent.  His one handed catch on opening day in the back of the endzone was one of the best I've ever seen.

Every time Dontre touches the ball I think "ooooohhhh boy, this could be the play!".  I'm still waiting for that first explosive play.  I know it's coming, he's very exciting and I believe that he's in for a  great season. 

Congrats on the hard work in the offseason, it will pay off...

VT will give us a better idea of how well the defense has progressed.  I do believe that their QB is the Texas Tech transfer, Brewer... he's a slinger and the DBs will be tested.

This is the business end of the deal with the NFL.  As a 49ers fan, it's frustrating that he's holding out and I get the argument "play the contract you signed" but on the same token, teams can cut you and you're done.  I don't blame him but sure wish this could've been resolved a couple weeks ago.  He's certainly turned his life around and is playing at the level that all of us Buckeye fans were hoping for.

I agree with pretty much everything that has been said.  Let us not forget one thing....Navy is one hell of a good football team.  It's not like we played UC Davis (no offense to them, just trying to make a point) or some Div 2 school.  Navy is a bowl team that won 9 games last year.  So, I'd like to give them some credit as well.  Virginia Tech is going to be a test... time to buckle up.

I am not sure that this is a top 10 team, that said, I'm not sure Alabama is a 2.  I think that Michigan St is the team to beat in the Big Ten.  That's not to say that I don't think the Buckeyes will get better... I believe they will and they will be ready for the MSU game when the time comes.  As for right now, I'd say that we're outside the Top 10.

This is a tough game to gauge how deep the team is and if they're improved from last season.  VT will be a great game and a game that I believe we will get to see the improvements (if any) Coach Ash has made with the secondary.  I believe that as long as they open up the playbook, JT will be fine.  He had a couple nice pocket presence moments and made a few nice throws, not to mention his keeper late in the game had everyone fooled. 

Sidenote.... JT led the Buckeyes in rushing with 50yards.  He accounted for 276 total yards.  Nice start I'd say.

Obviously I'm working waaaaay too many hours.  As I read this article, this is the first I've learned about Marcus.  I was wondering about him in the spring game and how I was never hearing of his name.  Losing Marcus and Sprinkle, on the cover, seems to be a significant loss... but this is why you recruit.

The team I think that Urban needs to keep an eye out for when it comes to taking kids from the great state of Ohio is Kentucky. 

 

Whatever happens, whoever commits... It's becoming obvious that Urban doesn't care what state the players are in, he wants the best kids for his program.  I just hope that the top talent in Ohio is just as high on The Ohio State as we (the fans) are on them.

7-10 as I agree with the above mentioned..replacing 4 of the 5 OL and the D must play better.  I will also add that I think the injection of youth will most likely show their inexperience from time to time.  Either way you look at it, this season can't get here soon enough!
