If you’ve followed Ohio State football over the last couple of years, you know how valuable right guard Wyatt Davis is to the team. Out of Bellflower, California’s national powerhouse St. John Bosco High School, he came in ready to play. He’s arguably the most valuable player on the OSU offensive line.      Count ESPN in the crowd that sees just how talented the six-foot, four-inch, 313 lb. mountain moving of a man is. The worldwide leader in sports programming has come out with a top ten list (subscription required) of best returning offensive lineman, and Davis checks in at No. 2, just behind Oregon’s Penei Sewell.

And their center Josh Meyers is just as outstanding. He just doesn't get quite the same amount of notoriety. Last year was the best interior line I've ever seen in all my years watching OSU, and that's saying something, given that I've seen or heard every game since the early 70s. Davis, Meyers and Jackson last year were virtually impossible to penetrate, and moved forward in front of Dobbins, Fields and company like a tsunami. Really, really incredible.

 

And here's the thing.

 

They'll be even better from guard to guard this year, hee hee hee. Because Harry Miller, the new left guard, is even better than Jackson.

I am HOPING that the Buckeyes can win it all this year

 

The offense should be excellent, the defense has some holes

 

...... It will be between OSU and Clemson.......

I'm always skeptical going into every new college football season, because you always have a bunch of new kids taking on their first major roles at the college level. And that includes kids in backup roles, but ones in which they play a lot of meaningful snaps. So until I "see it" enough times from them, I don't allow myself to expect anything too grand.

 

Even with the kind of major talent teams like OSU almost always have, football is the ultimate team sport. So all it takes is one weak spot to let the team down, and an otherwise special season becomes just another year.

    • He is a whole different order of threat than Mack.  I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so.  And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY.  Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
    • Sub par reading comprehension on my part.
    • 100% agree here. It's probably the right thing to do honestly to keep 6 WRs. We have lots of potential, but no guarantees besides Hilton at this point. However, I love Pittman, Pascal and Campbell as well. Patmon and Dulin can still make the practice squad, so they might not make the 53 because of that. Fountain is borderline, I think it depends on if he is fully recovered from his injury and can outperform 2 of the other 3 in Patmon, Dulin, and Marcus Johnson. Marcus showed some potential as well, he's the longshot IMO, but a big training camp could have him make the roster as the no6 receiver.   I don't think Patmon will stay on the practice squad for very long with his size and potential, so I'd keep him, don't know between the other 3 yet, I'd determine that through training camp competition. In any case, our WR potential looks fantastic, and with Rivers at QB, I believe we'll have 2 guys break out this year at WR.
    • If it's going to happen to anyone this year, it'll be us. Mack and Taylor will both be used heavily in the offense, Reich seems committed to the run, great O-Line. The recipe is there for something like that to happen. Not only that, we should be ahead in the majority of our games, so I can see us running the ball a lot in the 2nd half to waste time off the clock.    Obvious it's not guaranteed to happen, but I think if the NFL plays a full 16 games the result will be very close.
    • Great stuff. Sounds like Paris is off to a great start. Kevin Bowen said he is supposed to be at practice Monday. I think they will be in full pads.
