We saw the trouble that Borland had at times at the MLB position, is there any chance that there is a true competition for that spot with him being a returning captain?

To piggyback a little: Is Borland healed completely (hopefully more than last year when he returned)?

How much will pre-snap motions be a part of the offense? Will it increase or decrease from the Meyer era?

HS

And will the QB's still clap to get the snap?

question from 2004-

2004-2006 called, they want Ted Ginn Jr. back...

Ah good catch. I saw a TE question and didn't even read the 2nd half of his post.

I kinda figured that... but any excuse to post some Teddy Ginn highlights is a good excuse in my book.

Every single off season we hear two comments come from the Ohio State beat:

  1. DeMario McCall is poised for a breakout year
  2. Ohio State is going to utilize the TE's more in the passing game

Of these two things that are going to happen every year but never do what do you believe is most likely to actually happen and what is most likely to be just another thing to add to the 2020 off-season.

Any chance the QB lines up under center in short yardage situations?

QB sneak with Fields & our O-Line sounds like easy money

HS

Assuming Fields knows how to do the QB Sneak properly. I remember Terrelle Pryor when he was here had no clue how to run the QB Sneak properly (which of course led to that costly fumble against PSU in 2008). Hopefully Fields isn't cut from the same cloth there (especially considering our offense hasn't run a QB Sneak from under center since the pre-Meyer years).

Shame that we don't have a camp for people who need to practice sounding like OSU fans--now, take a lap!!

Championship or no championship for the 2019 Buckeyes?

How well is Hafley developing the secondary? How big of a jump are Okudah and Wade making?

HS

In your opinion, what must be done with the linebackers to make them more like the Silver Bullets of which fables are made and that we remember?

Who is your pick to win the West division? Most over- and under-rated opponents on OSU's schedule this year?

Does Ellijah Gardiner have a chance at some playing time this year? Is Tyreke Johnson going to make any noise?

Since Fall Camp hasn't quite started yet, it may be difficult for you to answer a lot of questions.  But going in to Fall Camp, is there any particular "buzz" you're hearing about anyone or anything  - you know, scuttlebutt from the independent summer workouts, etc. 

It'll be interesting to see how that compares with how you're feeling about things in a week or so -

Rank these players in order of the number of meaningful, non-ST snaps during the season (that is, snaps before a game is out of hand and there subs across the board): Mitchell, Browning, Proctor, Pryor, Harrison, Friday, Vincent, Togiai, Wilson, Saunders, Gill, McCall, Ruckert. 

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

HS

What % of snaps is Fields going to be getting?  The old 'haven't settled on a QB' could have a negative effect if he's not getting most of the work.

HS

Guess as to what Liam McCullough's t-shirt will look like this year, will his brother Roen continue the theme?

HS
WoullyBear's picture

Is Gill going to be a big part of the offense this year, or will he have to wait for KJ to move on after this year?  I’m hoping they don’t get too gadgety with him and make it obvious that when he’s in a sweep or bubble is coming.

If Ann Arbor is a whore, what's Harbaugh for going back to her?

HS

What will the receiver rotation be like at the end of camp? I remember seeing that Mack had played some at the Z in spring, allowing him and Victor to be on the field together. Does that continue, or do they continue to rotate those two at the X, and allow more playing time for guys like Olave and Wilson. Additionally, does Gill or CJ end up getting more time behind KJ?

Is there any chance we see a TE screen with Ruckert this year, or next, or next?

Is Bowden or NPF the likely starter at RT (gonna assume Mumford at LT, flip sides otherwise)?

HS

I'm rooting for NPF... Bobby Bowden is like 90 years old.

Terry's younger though...

RunEddieRun1983's picture

We know that the "starters" at WR are Mack/Hill/Victor, but can we expect a feverish rotation of guys like we've seen in the past? Any chance the dread "or" makes it's presence felt beneath those names, and if so, who would you expect to be their counterparts at each spot?

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

FMK... Joey Lane, Mark Titus, Harrison Hookfin?

Keeping fields healthy this year is imperative due to the lack of depth at qb, but I’d say his running talent will be needed at times for the offense to flourish. How do you think coach day and wilson go about getting him the right amount of carries?

Is the Penn State / TTUN back-to-back games to end the season a random act by the B1G office or does Ohio State have a say in approving the conference schedule?

HS
Smitty516's picture

It happened in 2011 and happening again in 2021...We also ended against Sparty in 2015 and 2016 before The Game which isn’t ideal. It’s still not as bad as 2016 when we had back to back weeks at Wisky then at psu. I think in 2022 we start the B1G by playing at Sparty and at psu. 

Overall, it’s poor scheduling by the B1G, hopefully something that can be changed with Delany gone. I’m not saying I want to play an FCS or MAC school before the game, but don’t understand the gauntlet our own conference unnecessarily puts us and other bigger schools in the conference through. You would never see the sec schedule Alabama back to back weeks at Georgia and at LSU...

Alright, one more question: Can you check inside your crystal ball and rank the wide receivers 1-10 in terms of catches for the upcoming season?

That actually sounds so fun that I am going to take a stab at it right now. And Colin, let's compare notes at the end of the season. 15 points for the right answer at 1, 14 for the right answer at 2 down to 6 for the right answer at number 10. And let's do like the Dukes (not Albert) and put a dollar on it.

1 KJ Hill
2 Austin Mack
3 Chris Olave
4 Jaelen Gill
5 Binjimen Victor
6 Ellijah Gardiner
7 Garrett Wilson
8 Jameson William's
9 Jaylen Harris
10 CJ Saunders
