Beat scUM, win 10 games, win the Bowl game.
A lot could happen next year, we have two new coaches to break in. We have to replace some big time wide receivers and Michael Bennett on the other side along with some secondary positions.
Yes, we have talent, but last year we couldn't really go two deep on the defensive line, these guys need to step up. The competition will be harder this year, we barely escaped Penn St last year, scUM was tight as well and even Minnesota. This year you can expect a lot more fight out of scUM and Penn State will be getting back on track with all of their scholarships available now.
Another big concern is complacency or a feeling of entitlement, thinking that we are The Ohio State Buckeyes and we will win. As great as the Steelers were in the 70's, they repeated twice, injuries, attitudes, etc can all hurt a team. Or another example, the Buffalo Bills somehow managed to make it to the SuperBowl four years in a row, but lost by a bigger margin each time. Again, the Steelers had some great teams during that time, the Bills were able to get home field advantage and make it to the big dance though.
Honestly, it wouldn't be any FUN if you "KNEW" you would win everytime, what is the point in that? Really, playing Kent State, UAH, Purdue, boring. Of course that brings up another example, TP pretty much single handily lost the Purdue game for us with 2 Fumbles and 2 INT's, Every team and player can have a bad game.
