12-1, Big 10 Champs, a Sugar Bowl win, including the school's first win over an SEC school, OSU looked poised this year to be contending for a National Title. But this past offseason changed everything; last season's accolades gone. OSU's starting QB gone. The head man in charge responsible for the last decade of dominance gone. A lot of teams would pack it in and try again next year, but at Ohio State adversity builds character and we will compete. The standard is still the same, but with new perspectives. Offense The Buckeye offense is key to whether or not Ohio State will contend. The main offensive concern is who will lead the Bucks. Everybody has presumed that true freshman Braxton Miller is QB1 in Columbus. Not true, at this point all three qb's have equal footing and who will start in L.A. is up for grabs. With the departure of QB Terrelle Pryor, OSU will be back to a brusing run game. The Buckeyes have three solid backs and they will all get carries. The WR's are young and inexperienced, with the exception of senior receiver DeVier Posey and TE Jake Stoneburner. Defense Defense wins championships, and this will be the unit that will win OSU a B1G 10 title. Losing Cam Heyward will hurt, but the Bucks return John Simon and big John Hankins inside and Nathan Williams on the end. Linebackers/Secondary return Tyler Moeller from injury at the LB/Star postion. Christian Bryant also returns from injury and will play CB/S/Star position.
