Can't wait. Will mostly be watching the OL and DBs as they are the biggest concern IMO.

Is the Elder kid (Ramsey) the starting QB for IU?

Looking for improved line play from OSU. That's my biggest concern.

Excited to have Schiano running the defense.

Nah. Senior, and I believe returning, starter Richard Lagow at QB. I think Ramsey is the back up though.

This is one of the most uninteresting Ohio State games in a long time.

* Opening the season playing a Big Ten opponent.
* The Big Ten opponent is a team that they should beat easily.
* Playing on a Thursday night.

The Thursday night thing is the biggest killer, IMO. The Big Ten and specifically Ohio State should be bigger than playing weekday games.

I'm personally glad it's a Thursday night game. For the opener, the sooner the better to me.

I agree. The opener is the only time a Thursday night game should be played, and in this case, I am very much in favor. As a bonus it gives OSU extra time for Oklahoma prep.


Excited to watch the defensive line wreak havoc, the offensive line improvements (if any), and the young receivers. Also would LOVE to see Haskins get some time in the second half

He's the backup, may get some reps in certain packages.

IU and to a lesser extent the B1G asked for the Thursday kick off to get the ESPN hype machine giving New Year type Bowl coverage for what is basically a low level conference game. Not sure but I think this is the 1st time Game Day will be at Bloomington for a game, huge deal for them and they will be rolling out the red carpet for their big $ benefactors so they can pony up more funds for this program.

I would have been worried this year if wasn't for the fact that IU fired their head coach who now works for OSU. I really though IU was going to turn a corner, however that's now been disrupted for at least a year or two until the new coach implements his system.

IU did return some decent talent. They should have a solid year for them, but not on OSU's level obviously

The IU defense should be sold this year and they have some NFL caliber players, (Tegray Scales is on a couple preseason all american lists) on that side of the ball. Their problem is they are now lacking on offense and special teams; they will sorely miss Wilson running the offense.

Bc it's week 1 at IU, I think it will be close through the first half. In the second half, OSU's talent takes over and they win by 17-21 points.

Most excited to see: Kevin Wilson's new take on Ohio State's offense

Least excited to see: JT Barrett

Terrible. Can't let a team like Indiana just stroll down the field casually.

First defensive series of the first game. Indiana is no slouch, especially last few years.

What's he supposed to do? There's nowhere to throw the ball.
