Now we're talking football.

Give me the under on Fields...I think he's around 3500 range, push on Dobbins, and the over on KJ - he should add onto that catch total and reach 1K.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

Edit - I think Fields will be over - DID NOT realize the article said total offense for him...

I need to wake up.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

Gotta take the over on Fields for total offense.  Barrett had 3,850 in 2017.  I think 3,500 yards passing and 750 rushing are within the realm of possibility for Fields.

Fields - Under

He gets pulled early and often because we smoke some teams and get Baldwin some PT. Throws for about an average of 230yds/gm and runs for an average of 60 yds/gm.

Dobbins - Over

He is a beast this year, only thing to stop him from the Over is Fields or emergence of 2nd running back that is too good to keep on the sidelines.

Hill - Under

Too many threats, too much talent. Spread the ball around. He will lead in receptions, but won't reach 1000 yds.

Thumbs up

Let's hope the "too much talent" at receiver ends up being right this year.  We have quite a few young-uns and Vic NEEDS to catch more balls and not let them slip through his fingertips.  The WR group HAS the talent to be great - BUT they are young and inexperienced.  I also think we have a few deep threat guys to help open up more room for Dobbins on the ground.

This could be another playoff run season.

What....Victor, Mack, Hill and Super Mario are young and inexperienced?

I remember JK during his freshman year and being blown away. Then I sort of fell asleep on him. 

I sort of don't understand how our RBs were used the last year or so. It's almost like neither of them had the opportunity to shine.

If hill has 1,000 yards receiving, the offense will have its struggles against top defenses because the offense is not balanced. Other receivers need to be involved and I believe they will.

But wait, Fields doesn’t even have the starting job yet!

Give me the over on Fields. Day’s offense is going to be pass heavy, and then add in the couple hundred he’ll get running, he’ll top 4200.

Under on Dobbins. As someone who loves so see a running back and Oline enforce their will on people (2014) I’d love to see him put up Zeke and Hyde numbers, and think he definitely could. But again, in Day’s offense, running won’t have the emphasis it needs to get Dobbins to 1400.

Over on K.J. Hill. Most experienced, reliable receiver is a pass heavy offense. He’s going to be targeted early and often each week.

Tough to say on fields. He has all the tools to be an over, but I think given that this is a new role for him on a new team the offense will lean on Dobbins pretty heavily.

Give me the over on Dobbins, he's going to sniff 2000 yards this year and have a monster season.

KJ Hill is for sure over on 1000 yards. He's going to be our WR1 from start to finish.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Over, under, under. 

Hill doesn’t have enough speed to stretch the field in order to get 1,000 yards. That would require 80+ catches, which may not be the most beneficial for this offense.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Hill had almost 900 yards last season as backup to Campbell, and even as a backup had 70 catches. Safe to say your number of 80 plus is accurate and he can do it.

That’s assuming Fields compares anywhere near to Haskins’ passing efficiency.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Some, more so assuming the Hill will be the leading receiver, and in Days offense the leading receiver better get a 1000

Fields - under. If our O-Line is playing well he could scratch on the 4000 yards mark, but I think it will also depend on how much he will come out as a running QB and use his legs.

Dobbins - over. With a QB who is also good using his legs and his developement over the last season he should be able to go over 1,400. Also the RB depth could play a role as I see no other RB in his range, so I guess he won't share carries like he did with Weber last season.

Hill - under. With Olave coming and Victor needing to step up in order to get a shot in the NFL I think the Offense will be split up and not lean on one guy. Also I see a good chance of more receptions for our TE, especially Ruckert, with Fields at QB. But I think that K.J. will be the Go-To-Guy, especially in short yardage situations or big 3rd Downs.

Going with Fields under. The running game will be much better.

Dobbins over. The running game will be much better.

KJ under. Barely. The ball will be spread around and the running game will be much better.

For the rest of my life, I will wonder how many passing yards DH would have had with a year starting under his belt......

Over- Fields throws for 3800 and runs for 7-800.  You just can't have Fields try to be Haskins- More like JT on steroids. Not literally. 

Under- Fields, Dmac, Dobbins all get good yards this year, with Dobbie leading at 12-1300. 

Under- Hill will be the ball control, go to guy, but won't torch opponents deep. I'll give him 900+ though. 

I could easily say over, over, over though.

Major H (homie) wants to say - over, over, over, but I want to see a lot from Olave, Victor, Teague, Mack and Baldwin, and Ruckert, too. For all of that to happen the Bucks would need 500 yds and 69 points per game. Wait, that's not a bad idea! 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Why 4200 yards for Fields?   JT Barrett set tOSU single season record with 3851 in 2017.

I think the under will be better for all three because the Silver bullets are back and the first team offense gets pulled early first half of season with a stronger defense so numbers won't pile up and young pups burn their red shirts

The writer of this "article" is such an idiot. Bashing Dobbins and acting like he wasn't the same player he was during his freshman year. It wasn't his fault that the offensive line couldn't run block and Coach Day kept calling the read option with a slow QB who didn't even run for most of the season.

Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.
