Ohio State Buckeyes
2020 Record: 7-1
5 ⭐ ………. 5
4 ⭐………. 13
3 ⭐………. 3
The Buckeyes were, as they seem to be every year, expected to find their way to college football’s final four in 2020. COVID did it’s best to keep them out, but with a bit of help, they got there anyway, pulling off one of the most impressive revenge wins in recent memory over Clemson before COVID finally caught them and sent them up against ‘Bama with damn near half the team sidelined. But make no mistake; this wasn’t the usual OSU team. The D, while feeding on big plays, wasn’t as impressive as what we usually see coming out of Columbus, and the Offense never really got into it’s groove with their schedule broken up as it was.
There is as much uncertainty for the Buckeyes heading into 2021 as they’ve had in years. The D is a massive question mark; it wasn’t great in 2020, And half of that squad is off to the NFL. The O-line lost some key parts, and oh… the combined number of passes the 3 QBs competing for the starting spot in a college game: 0. Not one. If this was almost any other team, this would be devastating. But like the ‘Bamas and Clemsons of the college football world, it’s not. They just reload and do it again.
If Things Go Well
The Buckeyes are still head and shoulders above the rest of the Big 10 talent wise. And it’s not close. Looking at the schedule, who’s going to beat them?
It They Don’t
Again… who’s going to beat them? Michigan? The Wolverines may never beat OSU again. They don’t play any of the top teams from the west. Indiana played them tough in 2020. But in the end, the only team the Buckeyes could struggle with is Oregon.
The gap between the top few teams is bigger than most think; there’s a reason we see the same teams in the playoffs year after year. Ohio State will dominate the regular season once again. How they do in the playoff will depend on how well this team comes together as the year goes on… and on QB play.
