COLUMBUS — A lot of college football programs would look back at a season in which they won 11 games and came within a play or two of playing for a national championship and think it was a successful season.
There are stars all around at Ohio State but here are five of them who could shine especially brightly this season:
National publications have rated Ohio State’s football schedule as high as the second-toughest in the Big Ten to as low as No. 7 in the conference.
COLUMBUS — Who will start at the two offensive tackle positions for Ohio State has been almost as persistent a question as who will be the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback with the season opener at Indiana a little over two weeks away.
COLUMBUS — Ohio State defensive coordinator Jim Knowles challenged Sonny Styles to first dominate the second-stringers in the spring if he wanted a shot at being a starting safety in 2023, and it looks like he’s done just that.
COLUMBUS — The sellout practice crowd of 500 at Ohio State football’s first preseason practice waited about 90 minutes for a real glimpse of the quarterback competition.
INDIANAPOLIS – Ohio State football coach Ryan Day wouldn’t even drop a hint about who might be the favorite between Kyle McCord and Devin Brown to be the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback this season when he was quizzed about that subject at Big Ten Football Media Days on Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The times have been changing rapidly in Big Ten football. And one more indication of that, with this year’s Big Ten Media Days scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday in Indianapolis, is that four of the head coaches who were at Big Ten Football Media Days last year no longer work for the schools they did 365 days ago.
