Pretty solid take, I thought, on the way the season shapes up.
I liked this section...pretty much says it...
Teams have a way of tightening up when everything is on the line, and now the entire tone of the program changes after its redshirt season.
There’s no more us-against-the-world attitude, because Ohio State is the world. There’s no more carefree spoiler-team fun, because Ohio State’s season is the one that everyone is trying to spoil. Basically, THE Ohio State University with THE Urban Meyer as its head coach either wins the national title or the season is a failure. It might not seem fair, and it might not be fun, but that’s the deal.
