Marshall isn't leaving the starting rotation until he is playing in the NFL.  The couches have started getting him more involved in the offense in the last three weeks, and he has looked great.  The one thing that really makes me a believer is his ability to run between the tackles.  If the H-Back is a threat to run inside, outside, or catch the à la Percy Harvin, Meyer's spread offense can be run to its full potential.  While he doesn't have Dontre's raw speed, Marshall is a more violent runner (With some throwing ability to boot) who defensive coordinators will have no idea how to deal with (When Wilson is lined up at running back it seems safe to say the ball is going to the outside of the field).

A player should never lose his job because of an injury, but Dontre is going is still going to find plenty of touches in an offense where positions and titles are basically meaningless and he can still be a great player.  But I'm a big believer in Marshall being the non-quarterback player our offense is going to revolve around for another year or two.

I don't think you can really call OSU's win yesterday an upset; we were favored by 3.5 points.  The Big Ten season has proven it's almost impossible to win on the road against the top teams in the conference, and the order of the top five teams (Excluding Indiana who is pretty clearly number one IMO) is incredibly fluid.

Tough loss, but it's not easy to win on the road in this conference.  Thomas is a player of the year candidate, and there isn't a team in the country that can come close to matching the ammount of pressure this team can bring on defense.

Assuming we take two QBs next year, I hope we take an great athlete like Ulmer or Kizer and a more pass oriented guy like Barker or Crest. As long as the QB is a good enough passer to make up for it, you don't need a great running quarterback in this offense. But if you do have one who can throw, you've got the making of something special.

It's always great to know you're watching an all time great Buckeye when their only half way done with their playing time at Ohio State.

It's never easy to pull in elite recruits from other regions, but with Brown's family ties to Ohio and the success two players from his HS have had and are havign at Ohio State you have to think we have a good shot here.

I'm really excited to see what the basketball team can do next year.  While Sullinger is a huge loss, the interesting thing about this year's team is that this looks like it will be Matta's first team with bench players good and experienced enough to force Thad to play them.
