    With that schedule it is really hard to picture them losing more than one game.

    They definitely have holes in their line up.

    That's a pretty easy schedule though. Prior to Mich State, Penn State may be the best team they face.

    That's a lot of experience to lose.

    The endless cycle, a big senior class that challenges for titles, and the rebuilding when the roster empties. Happened here also but many thought we could be the same when third teamers became starters. Depth isn't big when that happens.

    Big ten is a joke, a team like osu gets exposed in bowl games.

    True enough, but if the bucknuts' secondary is as weak as claimed, they have some teams that could take advantage and put up some big numbers. Penn State and Indiana come to mind.

    This season, Urbs and Shelley might find out how supportive their fans really are. Imagine a loss to Indiana? Might as well lose to GA Southern. If that happens along with a couple other upsets, things could get just as ugly for Meyer as they were for Muschamp last season.

    they had the ball bounce their way the past two seasons but not this year. When you have a team with experienced plaers you het those. bounces but when you start getting young inexperienced players in there, it just doesn't work that way for your team as often.

    I feel for OSU fans. What an awful schedule and boring season.

    They won 't care as long as they're undefeated and in the playoff discussion. If the Bucknuts lose a couple of games early and drop out of playoff and Rose Bowl contention, then things will get ugly.

    Penn State, Indiana, Mich State.

    The first two might torch their secondary, if it is as bad as the author is claiming it will be.

    I'd have to think Mich State is a straight up favorite to beat them based on the holes in the bucknuts' roster.

    The author thinks Navy and Maryland have a shot at them too.

    gatorrn74 (Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor) - if you disagree, how about backing up your opinion?

    Tell us how tough that Ohio State schedule is. With one or two ranked teams on it depending on whose poll you look at.

    LMAO. What a freaking joke.

    Seems to me they're a lot like fsu fans... they love playing nobodies all season long because it assures them of at least 9 or 10 wins a season, and they can leave the stadium at halftime and go to the pubs and get wasted without having to worry if they're going to lose or not. lol Of course, they like all their rivals playing tough schedules so they're beat up and injured when they play them.

    If things go south for them, how long do you expect it to take for the bucknut faithful to start seeing Urbs leaving Florida and replacing Sweatervest McCheaterpants was a Gator conspiracy to drag The pOSU further into ignominy? A pleasant mental exercise...
