Keeping it 100: The Way Too Early Look at Ohio State Football

Get ready Buckeye fans, we are exactly 100 days away from watching Ohio State enter the Shoe for the first time against Oregon State. Yes, 100 days is still a very long time, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to look ahead. Well, maybe it does, but either way, here are some key details to look into for this upcoming football season.

Be Prepared for Haskins

With Joe Burrow transferring to LSU this past month, the quarterback battle is down to two, with Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell battling it out for the starting job. All signs point to the former earning the job after his impressive performance against Michigan, so get ready for a more traditional Ohio State offense than in past years with J.T. Barrett. Haskins is a pass-first quarterback, so expect the running to mostly stay with the dynamic duo of running backs behind him.

The J.K. Dobbins Era Continues

The then-freshman had an electrifying campaign last season, and is now considered an early Heisman contender. Mike Weber should find his time in the spotlight as well, but it is Dobbins that looks to improve on his 1,364 yard, seven touchdown season from a year ago.

Ohio State’s Home Schedule is a Snoozer

Kevin Garnett once said anything is possible, and that is always true, but barring insanity or a team that looks way more impressive than on paper, Ohio State’s first six home games are cakewalks. The cake will be topped off with a Michigan game, yes, but for those looking to buy season tickets, have fun watching Oregon State, Rutgers or Tulane put up a fight.

2019 NFL Draft could have 2 Top Buckeyes

Even further away than the season is the 2019 NFL Draft, but this season should be a showcase for two dominant Ohio State defenders in Nick Bosa and Dre’Mont Jones. Bosa is expected to be a top-five pick at this point, and Meyer has gone on record saying that Jones has had the best offseason of anyone, and Jones already is projected in the middle of the first round. So, if Meyer is right, and often times he is, expect these two to prove themselves as top-tier talent for NFL teams next season.
