It’s never too early to talk college football, right? With the season set to kick off in a little over seven months, Ohio State Buckeyes running back J.K. Dobbins is currently the co-favorite to win the 2018 Heisman Trophy. Defensive end Nick Bosa also made the list.
Whether it’s on offense or defense, there is plenty of talent all over the field for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Following the conclusion of the regular season, a number of outlets released their All American lists. Of the five that the NCAA recognizes, three Ohio State players were named All-Americans. Not bad, huh?
Outside of a bad loss at Iowa, the Ohio State Buckeyes plowed their way through the Big Ten in the regular season. With all the talent on the Buckeyes, 24 players were named All-Big Ten honorees, whether it’s first team, second team, third team, or as honorable mentions.
On an Ohio State team loaded with talent across the board, center Billy Price, cornerback Denzel Ward, and defensive end Nick Bosa have been named midseason All-Americans by at least one major sports outlet.
Like the past few games, Ohio State had plenty of good and very little bad and ugly for this past weekend’s demolition over Maryland. The Buckeyes had just one non-good part of the game, but that one thing is very concerning moving forward.
Much like they have since their game against Rutgers last weekend, Ohio State scored early and often and took control of the game from the start to dominate Maryland, 62-14. The offense and defense had arguably their best games of the season.
When you win a game as easy as the Buckeyes did over UNLV, it’s easy to look at all the good things that happened. While plenty of good things did happen, some bad things (and no ugly things) happened as well.
As was expected, UNLV wasn’t much competition for Ohio State. Urban Meyer was able to play his backups for over half of the game while J.T. Barrett and the starters dominated and led the Buckeyes to a 54-21 win.
Whether it was offense, defense, coaching, or almost anything else, Ohio State was blown out by Oklahoma Saturday night. They still have time to recover, but what they have shown so far this season doesn’t give me much hope.
Saturday night was an opportunity for Ohio State to prove that they are the No. 2-ranked team (or better) in the country against Oklahoma in the much-anticipated top-5 matchup. They struggled on both sides of the ball and the Sooners upset the Buckeyes in Columbus.
The Buckeyes are expected to have the best defensive line group in college football this season, but defensive coordinator Greg Schiano believes that it’s so good that it’s even better than the one’s he coached during his time in the NFL.
The Ohio State Buckeyes struggle in night games at Happy Valley and that trend continued Saturday night against the Penn State Nittany Lions. Whether it was special teams, offense, defense, or the coaching, the Bucks struggled immensely, losing to their unranked conference opponent, 24-21.

The Ohio State Buckeyes used the ground game to get past the Hoosiers of Indiana. WFNY digs in to the good, bad, and ugly.
Not much bad to be had in the Ohio State domination of Rutgers this past weekend.
It may have been raining hard in Columbus, Ohio, including a downpour that led to a long weather delay at halftime, but in The Horseshoe, it was raining pick-sixes for the Buckeyes. The scarlet and gray may not have had a passing touchdown, but their run game and defense dominated for the second consecutive game
Finally, college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes are back! In front of 107,193 spectators (the eighth-largest in Ohio Stadium history), the Buckeyes put on quite a show on both sides of the ball. The Bowling Green Falcons may have put a scare to Buckeye Nation just minutes into the game, but the scarlet and gray
The Ohio State Buckeyes will kick off their 2016 season against the Falcons of Bowling Green State University. WFNY’s Corey Barnes previews the matchup.
