Ohio State is officially off of its postseason ban after this offseason and it has a team that returns up to nine starters on offense, with a chance to play for the final BCS championship before the playoff system kicks in.
The one thing that may hurt the Buckeyes or slow them down next season is that they will not have the 15 bowl practices that every bowl team has.
They will not get to practice again until the spring, but on the other hand, it lets Meyer and his staff focus on finishing off what promises to be yet another outstanding recruiting class come February.
It shouldn't be a surprise if the Buckeyes aren't at least ranked in the Top Five of the preseason coaches' poll next summer because they will have Braxton Miller back along with plenty of talented young players on both sides of the ball.
There will be questions on defense with John Simon and potentially Johnathan Hankins both going to the NFL, but there is plenty of young talent there that should be able to step in and play solid football.
But because of the undefeated run from this year, there's no reason to doubt that Ohio State has a good chance to make it to the last BCS National Championship Game in January 2014.
