The Buckeye Beat 2011 Ohio State Buckeye Football. This is a season of transition for the Buckeyes. We lost alot of starters on Defense including 9 defensive starters, Doak Walker award winner Boom Herron, star QB Terrelle Pryor and a few other key offensive playmakers. Fortunately our recruiting efforts the last two years have afforded us alot of good young talent to bring along this season. Joe Bauserman will be our starting QB for this season as we bring along one of our younger QB's to start next season. We think Joe will do a fine job and we look forward to seeing what he has to offer. Jamaal Berry is an electrifying Jr RB that we think will fill in just fine for the Doak Walker winner, and we wouldn't be surprised to see Jamaal in the running for that award this year. Posey, Washington, and Duron Carter (son of Chris Carter) will give our offense plenty of offensive weapons to work with. Our defense will take a step backwards this year, but we will see alot of young, highly touted recruits get their time to shine. Including Storm Klein, and Micah Wolfe coming into his second season. The schedule is daunting. The three biggest games we have this year will be a trip to the swamp week 2 to take on defending SEC champions Florida, then the defending National Champs come to Columbus for a potential 1 v. 2 matchup if both teams come in undefeated. But no game is bigger than the showdown in week 13 when the hated Wolverines come to the Horseshoe for the first time in 3 years (!). We will be looking to exact a measure for revenge against Coach Bondzai. We have a feeling in Columbus that, that game will be for the Big 10 championship. But first thing first, we must get past Rutgers in our home opener.
