    Early slate isn't bad. Miami is a bigger disaster than us. They'll start 3-1 and luck their way into six. I also think they'll kick Lombardi to the curb early.

    Only offensive players we lose are Tyler Johnson, Rodney Smith, and Shannon Brooks. Bateman is a true sophomore, so he'll be back.

    Defense is where we lose a lot more.

    Ohio State’s defense likely loses 8 starters with NFL entries, assuming DE Young, CB Okudah, and CB/S Shaun Wade leave.

    The front seven still will be decent because we were very deep up front, but we lost all four in the secondary.

    The offense will be phenomenal though. Best OL in years, tons of talent at WR, and year two of Fields. Need a RB to step up.

    This year was a bit of an outlier. We usually have a marquee ooc game.

    Also lol at Pitt, they fucking stink. PSU's ooc schedule has been dog shit most years since Jerry and Joe got caught

    You’ve also been good forever and all these games were scheduled when we had 60 players. We play VT, Auburn, and WVU with home and homes coming up. Cincy was your marquee non con game this year. Like I said, foh with that.

    but also, JF’s philosophy is cupcakes, so these aren’t gonna continue unfortunately.

    4-8 assumes Jim Bollman retires with no other changes which is what I expect. If Warner or Treadwell get a more prominent role in the offense, I’d drop it to 3-9.

    What do you lose/return?

    OSU:

    QB Fields
    LT Munford
    LG Davis
    C Meyer
    WR Olave
    TE Farrell

    Lose RB Dobbins, WR Hill, WR Victor, RT Bowen, RG Jackson

    Very good reserves to step up on the OL and WR. Big question at RB, but Teague will be serviceable.

    DE Smith
    LB Borland
    LB Werner

    Lose DE Young, DT Hamilton, DT Cornell, LB Harrison, CB Okudah, CB Arnette, S Fuller, CB/S Wade

    Still loaded at DT and DE, and will have four senior LBs. Complete crapshoot in the secondary and may be looking hard at the portal.

    Do you think anything happens with Dantonio after this deposition stuff with Blackwell? I admittedly know nothing about it, other than I remember he was able to push it until after the season with the agreement that nothing was off the table.

    QB- better
    RB- way worse
    WRs- expecting better
    TEs- better
    OL- Better

    DL- worse but still really good
    LBs- about the same
    CBs- way way worse

    Overall, a bit worse because of going from Okudah-Arnette-Wade-Fuller to guys who haven't shown much. Proctor is an insane talent but the worst player on the field vs Clemson.

    I don’t, but the possibility does exist.

    They will hammer him on Robertson and what he knew when. It is well established that Dantonio knew about his high school transgressions and made a tragic and misguided decision to bring him to campus. The admin knows this and has decided not to hold him accountable. I don’t think more details of this coming out in the deposition will change their position. Coaches challenging the decision, etc. isn’t a good look, but I don’t think it will take him down.
