Yeah I know, Ohio State has three losses.
What people overlook is that the team was in shambles all offseason, and players are now returning from suspensions.
This is a talented team in a transitional period that is starting to find the way.
The Buckeyes could easily be 6-1, if not for coach Luke Fickell making several horrible decisions.
The man left Joe Bauserman in those losses much too long. Joe might be a nice guy, but he is one of the worst fifth-year seniors you will ever see.
They were pounding the Nebraska Cornhuskers until Bauserman replaced injured freshman Braxton Miller. He then proceeded to throw the ball everywhere but to an OSU receiver.
As bad as the offense was against Michigan State, the Buckeyes still only lost 10-7. This group of players is resilient and is undoubtedly ready to take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
Illinois had no chance last weekend, and they were undefeated coming into the game.
Ohio State got up early and dominated that game. Controlling the time of possession and taking care of the ball is the difference between the Buckeyes being 4-3 instead of 6-1.
Read on to see why this upset wouldn't surprise me.
