Despite the flack he gets, Jim Tressel has done a top-rate job maintaining the tradition of winning at Ohio State. He enters his 10th season with an overall record of 94-21. More importantly his teams have played well above the number overall, going 65-46-2 ATS under his leadership (54-39 as a favorite). He has also not laid down against the big numbers as his Buckeyes teams are a strong 7-4 ATS when giving more 4+ touchdowns. Marshall was a beast for the first four years of this past decade recording a 38-13 straight-up mark, but the program has fallen off sharply. While this team has a tremendous home-field advantage, ranked No. 1 in the country at 118-19, the road has not been their friend. The Herd is just 5-22 in their last 27 on the highway. John Holiday could get this program moving in the right direction as he is a notable recruiter, but for now he has to live with some pieces that don’t belong in Columbus for week one.
