    Next year is going to be very interesting for the Buckeyes. Hopefully we're able to have an off-season because we will likely have 14 new starters.

    This is going to be the youngest and least experienced Ohio State team in a long time.

    Realistically, we are looking at 4 starters returning on offense—Petite-Frere RT, Miller G, Wilson WR, and technically Williams WR is a starter.

    We could lose the entire DL depending upon early entries. We will lose the entire LB corps. We only lose one in the secondary, but we also were among the bottom 10% in college football in pass defense in 2020.

    Yes, absolutely. We have recruited well, except for the 2019 transition class, but no one knows what we really have because no one has played.

    We don’t have a QB who has attempted a single pass. We return Teague at RB, but he is limited in his skill set and no one else has more than 10 carries.

    I expect Garrett DT to turn pro. If Togia DT and Smith DE follow him, we will replace our entire front seven. All four LBs we played this year were seniors.

    That was an odd hire when it happened. I saw Coombs' son (the guy who got fired as the Lions' ST coach for calling a fake punt without the HC's approval) got mentioned as a candidate to replace Freeman as Cincinnati's DC. Prior to getting fired by the Lions his son was considered a rising star in the league, apparently, and someone who could get HC looks down the road.

    He was a great position coach and recruiter when he was first here. I think everyone was surprised when Hafley left, so it was kind of a rush to fill the position. Figured he'd be good after getting some NFL experience. He still may be, given everything that went on this season, but it was a terrible start to his DC career.

    Michigan currently has a coaching staff with three guys under contract, and one of them was on paid leave all year for stuff that no one has reported on and won't be back. So things are going well. We're going to hire the Ravens' LB coach as DC at some point, and everything else appears to be in flux.

    I'm expecting a decent number of transfers from the current roster to go somewhere less miserable, but to this point it doesn't seem like any specific names have come out.

    Losing
    Jalen Mayfield, T
    Zach Carpenter, C (transfer to IU)
    Kwity Paye, DE
    Carlo Kemp, DT
    Cam McGrone, LB
    Nico Collins, WR (didn't play)
    Ambry Thomas, CB (didn't play)

    Theoretically, this team should be pretty good with competent QB play, but I'm not sure how they're going to get that unless Gattis gets his shit together and JJ McCarthy is ready to start from day one. The OL should be good and all the skill guys come back, along with some talented FR. The defense is a giant mess and I could see them being anywhere from "pretty good" to "awful".

    No rumors right now. When Day was hired, the only defensive coach retained was Larry Johnson on DL. Johnson isn’t leaving.

    On offense, maybe Meyer takes his son in law Cory Dennis our QB coach.

    RB Alford, OL Studrawa, and OC Wilson all have Meyer ties, but I’m not sure any of them aspire to the NFL.

    WR Hartline played in the NFL and only has coached three years. He would be a big loss because he’s our best recruiter.

    I don't think Urban takes that job, anyway. I think he'll enjoy settling in over the next few years into the next Gruden/Stoops who always gets talked about to stroke the ego, but never takes the job.

    If he did, I think Larry Johnson should go with him because that wouldn't be great for you and I would like that.

    We’re paying LJ $1.113 million a year.

    He can have Mattison, also $1.113 million, and let us hire a new DB coach.

    Pretty big "get" for OSU to return a starting LT with a new QB and probably different offensive style on the way.

    Munford & Nick Petit-Frere were arguably the best Tackle combo last year. Huge for the OL next year to have them back.

    My sources tell me that after suffering the embarrassing loss to Alabama on national television the strife is high within the Ohio State program. Several top level players agree that Head Coach Ryan Day is racist and the locker room is divided. We should see many rats fleeing the sinking ship in the coming weeks and many expect Ohio State to never win a football game again for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned.

    I typically presume anyone who can be drafted will leave early, but this year we are getting some surprising rumors of guys staying.

    The Munford return at LT gives us a really solid OL. WR is in great shape and RB is solid. We just need one of these QBs to step up.

    On defense, a lot of sites are talking about DT Haskell Garrett coming back. He was our best DL in 2020. If Togia DT and Smith DE stay, we get 3/4 of the DL back.

    We also get 3/4 of the secondary back, but they have to improve. We lose all three starters at LB and 4/6 of the two deep.
