Low expectations because everything was overhauled. Nobody knew if Day could make the next step, nobody knew if Fields was the real deal, nobody knew if the new coaches would make an immediate impact. That's why I questioned whether they would be average or great. I'm not complaining, because if Ohio State wins out, Ryan Day should be head coach of the year.

At the beginning of the season, I had the Buckeyes winning 9 games. Why? Because there were so questions about the team. New head coach, new coaching staff, an inexperienced quarterback, new offensive line, and would the defense rebound? After 6 games, I've been blown away on how complete this team is. It doesn't resemble an Urban Meyer team at all. Ryan Day has exceed my expectations. He has this team on the cusp of something great, something that we haven't seen since 2014.

This will be interesting going forward with the Miller and Stroud. I suspect that Ohio State would prefer Stroud over Miller. Stroud came on his own dime and his quarterback coach Quincy Avery tagged along, that's in itself is telling. There's no way that Ohio State is signing 2 quarterbacks, those days are over with the transfer portal in place. I wouldn't be shocked if Miller down the road decommited.

I cringe whenever Fields stands in the pocket too long. He's one hit away from being out for the season. Day needs to clean it up fast. It wasn't their best game and they still manage to rack up over 500yds of offense, if that isn't a scary enough. Personally I think the best test will be against Wisconsin. Lucky for them, they have a bye week to rest and heal.

From what I've seen so far is a team struggling to find an identity. The speed in space so has looked more like lost in space. As for this new offense, I saw a lot of the old offense in the Army game, running the ball up the middle over and over. Michigan gets a lot of hype for all the wrong reasons and we'll see how they response against Wisky in a couple weeks. If they lose, I think this might be the end of the Harbaugh era. Buckeye fans put up with a decade of Cooper's inconsistency. I know several Michigan fans and they're starting to get fed up with the antics and poor coaching. If he finishes with 3 losses, I think he's done at Michigan.

This is put up or shut for Studwara this season, because his ass is one of the line. The line looked soft and didn't counter against the adjustements that FA made. Run blocking sucked and I cringed because it was a major problem last year. There's no excuse for this to repeat itself. Another glare problem is this getting a big lead and letting the foot off the gas, it needs to stop.

Here's my take. It's a typical first game of the season. They started off strong and then became disinterested. I never felt like the Florida Atlantic was going to make it a game. When they scored, the Buckeyes answered back. Day was looking at the pieces he had. Some will say he did this on purpose. I also felt he kept Fields on a leash. Why put him in a position to fail or risk injury? The big test will be the Bearcats, but I'm not sure they're for real? Was UCLA just that bad? I mean they didn't blow them out. However, Fields doesn't have the luxury he had today. This team is a work in progress.

2nd half was brutal almost to the point that I couldn't watch it. Lots of mental mistakes and that's expected in the first game of the season. The o-line while it's inexperienced made me cringed as they struggled to open up holes. The defense was a lot better than last year's first game. But it doesn't get any easier with Cincinnati next week. Like Aaron Boone likes to say "Tighten this shit up"

Kiffin is washed up and this is probably his last coaching stop. I still remember his blunder during the Sugar Bowl when he decided to stop running Henry against the Buckeyes. Henry was having his way against the defense. I still believe that if they didn't stop running Henry, the Tide could have beaten the Buckeyes.

I think the Big Ten gets left out again. Both Ohio State and Michigan have too many questions. Ohio State has no depth in the quarterback position, if Fields goes down, I think they're screwed unless Hoak magically becomes the next Haskins. As for Michigan, going from a pro style to a spread with a coordinatior that has never called a play? Good luck. The national champions will be Clemson because they the ACC is garbage and they didn't lose a lot of talent.
