Dear Mr. Anderson:

This is what I have been saying for years.

Putting all of OSU’s eggs in the Michigan basket is a mistake!

With no in-state rival, OSU needs to foster rivalries with West Virginia and Notre Dame.

Then, when they face championship-caliber teams, they will be battle-tested.

Look at LSU’s gauntlet this year:

“L.S.U. finished its campaign at 15-0, having conquered Alabama, Auburn, Florida and Texas. It defeated Georgia for the Southeastern Conference championship in early December and then disassembled Oklahoma in one of the semifinal games that set Monday’s matchup in New Orleans. In the title matchup, the team rallied from a 10-point second-quarter deficit to defeat Clemson.”

Actually, this is a wonderful forum because Ohio, the birthplace of football, has wonderful football programs all over the state!

I have family from North Canton and the Massillon area, and lived in Tiffin for twelve (12) years!

The discourse here is reasonable (for the most part) and very knowledgeable!

Here is where one can find reliable information and argument!

Thank you for your reply.

To be fair, Michigan dropped its games with Arkansas and USC for the same reasons, so  it’s part of everyone’s modus operandi to keep real competition to a minimum.

Also to be fair, without an in-state rival, make  sure there is at least some competition with Notre Dame and either West Virginia, Louisville or Kentucky!

Kentucky is probably the easiest!

11-3 all time?

That’s crap.

These ARE Ohio State’s rivals—they are next-door neighbors.

Who does not play one’s next-door neighbors?

This is the definition of a rival.

These records should be in the twenties on both sides, for each team, which is the real reason for not playing them.

So glad the rivalry with Notre Dame is coming.

Hope it continues.

Is this the first regular-season Notre Dame game scheduled in the last 100+ years?

If I were scouting the Buckeyes, I would say this:

The cornerbacks are unstoppable: avoid them.

Dobbins is unstoppable, but he holds the ball high and may be susceptible to a punch-out from behind—never tackle him high.

The wide-receivers are world-class!

Fields is okay—always play him to run.

He can play under center anytime—especially at the goal line.

Number 75 LT can be beaten—put your fastest DL opposite him and stunt him all game—sorry!

Blitz every time #33 is in the game—he can’t pass-protect—sorry!

The linebackers are the weak link—susceptible to TEs down the seams, and crossing plays and slants.

Olave and Hill are killers!

I watched the game versus Florida Atlantic, but I don’t remember Justin Fields throwing the long ball. Was there a long completion on a post route or where a receiver had to fight for a contested ball?
