College Football's Watch List

I thought we would get the college football fans right into the college football fray with previews of some of the teams that will be on our radar during the season. Today, we will talk about the Ohio State Buckeyes and what chance they have of hoisting the trophy up in January.

The Ohio State Buckeyes almost lost everybody on the defensive side of the ball include A.J. Hawk and Bobby Carpenter both were NFL draft picks and will be playing on Sundays. The Buckeyes must fill the holes left from graduation and it won't be easy. Luckily for the Buckeyes the reserves seen a lot of time so the defense will start out slow but by the end of the season they should be okay.

Offense will be king at Ohio State this year as quarterback Troy Smith will be back to lead a offense that should consistently put up a lot of points. Smith will rely on super wide out Ted Ginn Jr and Super freshman Chris Wells to carry the load on the offensive side of the ball. The Buckeyes will score and score often and the only roadblock I really see in the way is a trip to Austin Texas to play the Longhorns the second game of the season.

If the Buckeyes get past the Longhorns all the tough games are at home this year for Ohio State including the big showdown against Michigan. I look for the Buckeyes to contend for the National Championship this year. The only question will be can the defense get up to speed fast enough and help the offense out when needed.
