Ok, even I'll admit it: We're overrated. Should be #3 behind GA and Meatchicken. I get it, we have a great defense and we beat ND and PSU, while GA and ND haven't really played anyone as tough as ND/PSU, but if you've been paying attention at all, we're VERY beatable and ❌️Michigan will destroy us. The fact that McCord is in any award talks is laughable at best. I could probably throw for 200 a game with those receivers (says the armchair HS varsity backup QB). This whole #1 ranking is exactly why people love to hate Ohio State. It's undeserved and we'll piss it away soon enough.
Lifelong, diehard, but very realistic Buckeye fan.
Not trying to stir it up, but if OSU had even an "OK" line, they'd look way way better. Your O-line is abysmal2002 and 2015 I didn't feel we were dominant but we kept finding ways to win. I don't see number 1 but we have an "okay" QB and an "okay" o-line. Those are our weak links. If they steadily improve throughout the season we could finish in top. I'd argue our 2nd and 3rd string WR and RB aren't far off from our first string. Defense is impressive. Time will tell.
Put our o-line on most teams and it is an improvement for that team. Honestly, our terrible o-line will look okay on an unranked team or even a team ranked in the mid teens. For a NC contending team? Yes. Abysmal. I agree.Not trying to stir it up, but if OSU had even an "OK" line, they'd look way way better. Your O-line is abysmal
