Some good insight, especially noting that the marquee wins have been against names that may not be quite as good this year - at least, not yet. But one thing seems certain, everyone on the team has bought into playing defense. Other teams will improve as well through the season, but it just feels like these guys have the potential to grow at least as much as anyone else in the country.

I don't have a rooting interest in any of these contests, other than to hope for clean + competitive games, no injuries, and maybe even some decent weather. I used to operate a sideline camera for some finals telecasts in Canton, and there is just something about the atmosphere there that makes any finals game a treat - even if you know little about either school. +1 to you as well for adding info about 'cruits for OSU and other programs. Hoping it's a great weekend for all.

All sorts of head-exploding "what ifs" today, all of them seemingly plausible. At least as of today, I'm good with OSU football's present reality. Thank you for yet another enjoyable read.

Though Dobbins may not be the fastest straight-line runner, his ability to not only identify running lanes but to quickly get through them has proven elite.

This right here, which includes his ability to read his blockers. In the third highlight gif (Mid-Zone bounce), Jackson almost whiffs on his guy, but slows him down just enough to allow Dobbins the time (a fraction of a second) to "see" the right hole even before it really develops. Related, I love seeing how elite players like Dobbins are still improving their game; just one other example is Garrett Wilson, already wholeheartedly embracing his role of not just running routes/catching passes but delivering great blocks as well.
