Dissecting The Ohio State Offense
Many writers and college football experts go nuts over the Ohio State defense. However, more and more of them are looking at the Ohio State offense to be a major factor this year. Let's take a look at the Buckeye offense.
Pryor is becoming more comfortable in the pocket and it started to show in the games against Penn State, Iowa, Michigan, and Oregon. Now that Jim Tressel is ready man up and open the playbook, Pryor may be a Heisman Trophy candidate. He passed for 2,094 yards and 18 touchdowns last year.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention he can run like Troy Smith.
Dan Herron is really starting to develop as a threat. He rushed for 600 yards and 7 touchdowns last year. He will likely do better this season.
This guy is becoming one of the best wide recievers in the country. Phil Steele rates him number seven. Why not? He hauled in 60 receptions for 828 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Brandon Saine is an unstoppable running back. He rushed for 739 yards and 4 touchdowns last year.
Buckeye Running Attack
Dan Herron and Brandon Saine make up one the best running back duos in the country. They combined for 1,339 yards and 11 touchdowns.
It's not fair at all to forget about the big, beefy lineman protecting the quarterback. Boren makes sure no one gets to Pryor.
