I kind of missed the hand-wringing.
Any other team, you'd look at a game like this and shoot fireworks into the air with a general celebration of something resembling normalcy in a year that has been very much not normal.
Not us. "What's going on with the running game?" "Why can't we cut block as well as Michigan?" "Our linebackers aren't who we thought they were!" "I'm wet and cold and locked out of my house!" Etcetera. But hey: that's every week as a Buckeye fan in the fall. I love it. It's back. Let's keep it going.

That was a great season opener against a solid Nebraska team. Plenty of stuff to work on but the offense showed how dangerous it can be even without a great day running the ball. Buckeye football is back and I couldnt be happier— Michael Bennett IV (@mike96bennett) October 24, 2020
Liked what I saw. The game went exactly as I anticipated. Shake off the rust. Got going in the second half. Defense gotta patch a few things. After they play a few more games theyll be in full form. Good game next week on Halloween #ScaryHour #GoBucks— Tyvis Powell (@1Tyvis) October 24, 2020

That's not a typo.
Ohio State senior defensive tackle Haskell Garrett recorded the first sack of the season for Ohio State less than two months after being shot in the face.https://t.co/lCYwXJHRmJ— Justin Holbrock (@NBC4Justin) October 24, 2020
Next week is a Penn State team that might be good but probably isn't. Or maybe they are! Who knows! 2020 is weird as hell! See you then.
