When you’re in the top 5, the class is NC worthy.  We’re going to be just fine.  I’m not easy on the Buckeyes, and there are position groups that need work, but if you remember this time last year when Michigan has a higher rated class, Meyer was leaving, Baldwin and Martell transferred....having a 13-0 CFP team and a top 3 recruiting class, I’d say we’re just fine.

I get ND is already on the schedule these years, and that the B1G schedule is a little wonky in 2023....but if we're going to schedule teams like this I'd rather have 2 games against in-state MAC teams.  I'd rather play Toledo, Bowling Green, Akron, Miami, OU, or even Cincinnati than Arkansas State or Florida Atlantic.  Prop up Ohio teams and AD budgets.  It can't be that hard to get those teams to come to Columbus regularly for the paycheck.  Alums across the state would pay to see the games too.  I absolutely love attending games in the Shoe, but even I have little interest in going to see us play Ark State or San Jose State (again).

This is pretty much how I would have it too.  I might swap Ruckert.  Is it bad I don't know who Pahl is?  I totally agree that Wade and Okudah should be the corners, but I'm sure Arnette will play a lot still too.  Prob as a nickel.

I'm real interested to see the RT battle.  I hate to speak ill of captains, or former Buckeyes, but I couldn't believe that we didn't have someone better than Isaiah Prince these last few years.  Stud has his hands full with all of the open competitions on the OL.  I still think the 2nd biggest loss of any player to the NFL this year (besides Bosa but including Haskins), was Michael Jordan.  But we'll see how things shake out.

Well....duh.  That's why the whole defensive staff outside of LJ was let go.  I doubt Mattison or Washington are going to worry about who started last year.  They don't have much time to turn things around.  They know Hafley and LJ won't be blamed if the front seven don't perform.  It's pretty clear that both of those coaches will be focusing almost exclusively on that unit.

I kind of only pay attention to these awards the day they're announced, and then I forget about them.  We talk about COY enough that I knew Meyer had never won it.  That's a shame, but....


IIRC, Roby, Conley, Lattimore, Apple, Hooker were all 1st round picks.  Bell was a 2nd rounder.  I'm probably forgetting someone too.  That's a true crime that we didn't have one in Meyer's era win the award.  Hooker especially jumps to mind, because he had multiple INTs returned for TDs.

Johnson must love what he's doing.  The Associate Head Coach title doesn't seem to really carry any additional responsibilities.  I have to believe if LJ wanted the D co-coordinator position he would have gotten it.  Mattison seems well aware that LJ is running the show with the DL, and they'll work on the front 7 scheme together.

I hope there's a plan in place to move Washington to the DL once LJ finally hangs it up.  We need to retain that institutional knowledge.  Mattison will be gone before LJ I would guess, just based on age.

I agree with others, there would have been a revolt both inside the locker room and with the fan base had LJ not been retained/given a raise.
