The Buckeyes are 7-0 and some say that this may be the most dominating OSU team…ever. Fans and alum of “THE” Ohio State Buckeyes have been blessed to see some of the best players, Heisman Trophy winners (7), and teams with national titles (8). Many naysayers said OSU would struggle with the departure of coaching legend, Urban Meyer. But Ryan Day is making an argument with his coaching, creating this monster. The Buckeyes have dominated teams like we have never seen before. Not saying teams at OSU haven’t dominated before, but this team, from the jump, has been dominating in every aspect, especially the defense.
The Buckeyes got a gift in the offseason with the transfer of Georgia freshman star, Justin Fields. Fields has been amazing in learning the offense in just several months. He’s thrown 1492/22/1 while completing 70% of his passes and has rushed for 291 yards and eight TDs. Fields is guiding an offense that is currently averaging 49.8 PPG. Running back J.K Dobbins has been outstanding so far this season. He is the second in the country in rushing yards (947). Additionally, Master Teague has been an outstanding backup for Dobbins, averaging (7.0 YPC) with 512 rush yards and four touchdowns. Wideouts Chris Olave, K.J. Hill, Benjamin Victor and Austin Mack have been good all season.
Ohio State has been notorious for having great defenses. But this year’s crew might be one of the best. Led by all-world DE Chase “The Predator” Young, who leads the nation in sacks at (9.5) and others such as LB Malik Harrison, S Jordan Fuller, and corners Jeff Okudah and Damon Arnette, the “Silver Bullets” are holding opponents to 8.0 PPG.
Yes, that’s not a misprint.
The Buckeyes are very likely to not give a TD. In fact, they have allowed 10 points or less in six of their seven games. The defense still must play the likes of Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan.
The Buckeyes are playing football at a level that has many experts saying they’re the most complete and best team in the country even though they sit at number four in the rankings. The Buckeyes have five games left, three of whom are against opponents that are currently ranked. If the Buckeyes dominate those three opponents and go on to win the Big 10 title, there is no reason why this team shouldn’t be considered number one.
