Ohio State University Last Season: 7-6 Offense: Last season our QB play was unacceptable. We did not take care of the ball and was inefficient when not throwing INT's(21 last season). In steps true freshman Chad White from Clear Lake, Iowa. Chad is a true pocket passer(94thp 89tha). We are installing a new offense around him to better utilize his big arm. White has some talent at the WR to throw to. Joe Burton is back for his junior year. Last year he had 55 receptions for 1289 yards and 11 TD with only 2 drops. He should have a similar season this year. Sophomore Earl Miller will again man the slot position. Miller is not a flashy guy, but he can make plays. Another Freshman that will start is WR Josh Ford. Ford is a speedster(94spd 95acc) that we hope will make big plays and take some pressure off of Burton. The running game will once again be manned by Todd Harris and Calvin Cobbs. They are a talented pair of seniors rated 99 and 96 respectively. Cobbs will probably start with Harris getting a lot of action in as well. The TE's start with Courtney Johnson. Last year we relied on courtney mostly in the blocking game. We plan to expand his role in the passing game over the middle of the field. The Oline is a talented group. They have an average overall of 92 and should be solid. Defense: The Dline returns all 4 starters and should be the strong point of the defense. Every player is rated at least 90 and is led by Senior Jamaal Winston. Winston had 16.5 sacks last year and we need a repeat performance this year. The LB core returns 2 starters and will be starting a talented Juco transfer in Charles Smith(88) at the other position. At CB with have 3 seniors that will man the group. Kyler Grigsby is the star of the group and entertained the idea of going pro, but didnt want to leave Columbus after a 7-6 season. Rich Johnson and Kyle Sapp will man the CB2 and CB3 spots. SS will be manned by another Senior, Tony Gipson. Tony is a physical player who should help stop the run. The starting FS will be yet another true freshman, David Walker. Walker has the makings to turn into a superstar. He is fast and can lay the lumber, not to mention hands(75 catch). He should create some turnovers. Overview: We are a mixed bunch this year. We have lots of senior leadership, but will also have 5 true freshmen starting. We have some talent and need to improve on last years embarrassment. Our goals are to get back to double digit wins and knock Penn State off the top of the Big Ten mountain.
