    For Ohio State, the big questions on offense are whether Fields is as good as advertised and OL depth.

    Brandon Bowen was pretty good as a starting guard in 2017, but broke his leg and hasn’t played in 18 months. Alabi and Davis have started games, but do to injuries to others. We’re paper thin behind the starters.

    Our defensive back seven has been horrific the last two years, masked by an outstanding DL. We literally could start a top-100 player at every position on defense, so we’re hoping coaching makes a difference.

    How's that Oliver Martin guy looking for you guys? Iowa rivals posters had a meltdown when he committed to Michigan.

    Good question. We made a late push for him as well.

    He has allegedly been good in practice, but it hasn't really translated to much playing time. Rumors have been swirling that he's looking to transfer, and I would assume Iowa would be on his list.

    That has been a rumor for about a year now I thought. Iowa would be the worst place to go as a WR. We only like throwing to TEs.

    Ohio State started Spring Practice today. I haven’t read any reports, but I assume they’re awesome.

    When I see reports of random defensive tackles who suddenly have become unblockable, that’s really the first sign of Spring to me.

    Bill Lineman gained 40 pounds of muscle in the off season. He really probably didn't, though, unless he's taking steroids.

    I fully expect you'll hear something like

    "Fields is picking the offense up wayyyy faster than they expected"

    and

    "Day is running spring practice like he's been doing it for 20 years. There's a new energy and sense of focus in the building"

    Well when you consider what Day did in the passing game with a running QB like Haskins, you've got to be excited.

    Early spring report out of State College I’m hearing from my contacts

    “James Franklin has been crushing it in late game situations. His decision making and coaching acumen is going to swing a couple games in Penn State’s favor this fall.”
