They lost most of the secondary, their best LB, and Barrett sucks.

Kevin Wilson should have them rolling on offense despite Barrett's poopiness

Not surprised as on paper they do bring back a lot and the DB recruiting class was off the charts.

Schedule is funky though. Open on a Thursday evening @ IU is not what this team is use to doing, the Kevin Wilson return to Bloomington will also be a possible distraction; usually it is a MAC team in the Shoe on a Saturday at noon. Follow that up with a huge National TV game the following Saturday against Oklahoma and a game against a unique offense in Army and this team better be sharp early on. Also their swing roadies against the West are in very tough environments, Nebraska and Iowa. Finally they play the young Wolverines on the road which will be a very dangerous game as by that time they should have an identity and would like nothing more than possibly ruining tOSU's season.

Spring game will be April 15. Last year's game was attended by > 110K.

Four quarterbacks competing for the starting spot. Who will get the job?

I've heard reports that the defensive players have said the offense is challenging them much more this spring than last spring. That's a good sign.

Yes, it is. I believe the offense returns eight starters. I hope the offense is challenged as well (goose egg vs. Clemson).

As a "reload" program with that QB and last year's finish, they would have to lose a ton to be so low, right ?

Will Eric Glover-Williams get some time this season? I saw he switched to wr, maybe return some kicks? Seems like too good of an athlete to not play--maybe transfer? Time is ticking

They are projecting 3 losses. Lowest projected win percentages are ND (43%), Wazzu (53%), and Standord (53%). I don't agree with 3 losses, but their win out percentage was horrible which killed their FPI ranking.

Yup, it seems both of these guys would be better than JT if they were given the chance to start. There would be some more growing pains obviously than you'd see with Barrett but it would be for the better. What a shame.

Final 3 games of 2016

19-33 127 yards 0 TD 2 INT
15-32 124 yards 0 TD 1 INT
10-22 86 yards 1 TD 0 INT

Offensive points per game in regulation: 9.0


If this is the kind of output we want at Ohio State vs. good defenses in November and later, then we should stick with Barrett. If you don't believe this is good enough output relative to the talent on offense, then you try to find a better alternative.

Just because Barrett is the status quo doesn't mean you should stick with him

I agree. I do have faith that Barrett can return to "good JT" under Kevin Wilson, but there are still flaws in his game that will never go away. His release is SUPER slow, and he seems to take a very long time to decide where to go with the ball.
