Feel like the program has had 0 change since they got rid of Matta. Theres very little development and improvement from younger players. They seem to flash early and then do nothing the rest of the way whilst other programs in the B1G adapt their game plans. OSU doesn't seem to develop or grow throughout the year, they just act like what they did before matters and works. Give this staff 1 more year to make them a worthwhile program or get rid of them all and start fresh.

The portal is mainly for media and the public. Any player that is transferring likely has already had conversations with other programs prior to making their decision. I think the portal is beneficial to lesser sought after players to announce their openness to transfer and allow them to find new programs that fit them better than trying to reach out to programs directly.

Team isn't going anywhere this year folks. The creme will rise to the top. OSU will finish 4th or 5th in the B1G, be a 3-5 seed and fizzle out in the second round or maybe the sweet 16. They don't have the scoring talent or elite big man to contend. Some solid early wins but they are crap against tough fundamental teams. Team is still a year or two away from being anything special and thats a good thing because Holtman is a hell of a coach and will bring us a final four soon.

if you don't think ESPN has its fingers in every aspect of college football, you are an idiot. I am seriously surprised no investigation has been launched to show how ESPN corrupts college football

Georgia is going to be the dominant force in the SEC soon enough. Clemson is still recruiting insanely well and the ACC is trash. This was OSU's best chance to establish any sort of dynasty and they failed. Replacing two primary coaches is going to be challenging. We will see what next season has to offer as all of the key pieces of the defense are gone. I think OSU runs the B1G, but it will look more like Tressel's run than any sort of national dynasty.

Two things for OSU to win: Apply consistent pressure to Lawrence and force him into bad throws that can result in a pick or two, and keep Justin Fields protected and healthy. I think both of those will be very difficult for OSU to do. Young hasnt been able to impact the games lately due to double and triple teams (and no calls on holding from refs). I think the same trend continues and OSU will need to have someone else be impactful along the DLine. Fields gets hit a TON in every game and Clemson has elite speed on defense that OSU has not seen this year. I expect Fields to get knocked out of the game at some point. Chuggy time steps up and makes some plays to keep the game close, but its not enough. I think Clemson is a little overrated as the ACC is absolute garbage and they havent faced a team like OSU, but as the game goes on Clemson will figure it out and pull away in the second half. 42-17 Clemson. They go on and beat LSU due to LSU's defense giving up huge plays. Clemson 38 LSU 21.

OSU is going to get smoked. 42-17 something like that. Offense hasn't been that sharp or consistent lately and that won't come close to cutting it vs their D, which is somehow underrated this year. OSU LBs won't be able to do anything in coverage. Etienne is an absolute monster complimented by one of the best QBs in the country. Ill be shocked if OSU makes this an end to end game. Losing to Clemson isn't that big of a deal as I wouldn't give OSU a chance against LSU either. A great season and a lot to build off of with an excellent core coming back next year (at Oregon looks scary as hell right now). All in all, a tremendous first year for Day and OSU should win the B1G again in 2020.

This game isn't going to be like last time. Badgers are hungry and will make adjustments.

Its a good hire and Meyer would get the Boys over the hump with that Roster. Meyer is a commander and not someone to be a passive buddy type coach like Garrett. The Boys roster is elite and its clear they need someone to push them to excellence. Meyer is a an expert on how to do that. How ownership and NFL roster logistics impact the way Meyer coaches is up in the air, but I think on paper is a brilliant move for both sides.
