Your Week 3 Ohio State Buckeye Football Update

Ohio State sits at 3-0, and #2 in the polls.

The Buckeyes have the explosiveness on offense to earn style points.  It's becoming difficult for Senator Jim Tressel to hold back them back.

Teams are still loading the box to stop Ohio State's running game.  The difference this time around, and since the Rose Bowl, is that they're using a bevy of weapons to open up the passing game.  In the past, they would have seen your 8 men in the box, and raised you an off-tackle run play. 8-9 in the box, or blitzes from every which direction; it doesn't seem to matter against this football team.  There are 7 or 8 guys on offense that can and will make you pay for your defensive aggression.

The team is entering a soft spot in the schedule, but don't expect this band of brothers to turn down the dial.  This group is having too much fun right now, and so are the fans.  Keep jammin' because it's time to see what this puppy can do.

This offense is dangerous, and let's not forget how Oregon is playing, or what this Ohio State defense did to that unstoppable Oregon offense in the Rose Bowl.  Ohio State has had their Miami game, and despite the woes of the ACC, it was still an impressive victory against a good football team.  We'll see how Alabama fares in a similar match-up this weekend against Arkansas.

Let's take a look at some of the other subplots surrounding this Ohio State football team.
