A look at the Buckeye’s season before the Rose Bowl

Going into September, Rock and I detailed our thoughts about the upcoming Buckeyes football season.

Ohio State vs. Indiana Preview/Open Thread

The Buckeyes play in Bloomington tonight at 7PM (on the Big Ten Network), facing Bill Lynch’s Hoosier squad.  The Hoosiers are coming off a tough, tough loss at Michigan last week that ended in controversial (though correct, it turns out) fashion.  There has been a lot of talk of a much improved Indiana team based

Yesterday I ran through the positions on Ohio State’s roster that I feel are weaker than they were a year ago.  Then I promised to talk about the positions that are better.  Because I don’t like to break promises (and because I got bored last night), here’s the list of positions I think the Buckeyes
