#2 Ohio State (1-0, 1-0) at Indiana (0-1, 0-1) Post Game

I didn't see a thread for this game yet so I thought I would start one.  

It seems weird to start the season with a conference game on a weekday.

I'm going to miss it completely.  I'll be down in Georgia hiking.

Ohio St leads the all time series 72-12-5.

Indiana dominated the series prior to OSU joining the Big Ten. They played every season from 1901-1905, with Indiana taking all but one, which was a tie. 

Indiana won the inaugural Big Ten show down, 7-6 in 1913. 

After that it's been pretty much all OSU, with Indiana picking up wins in 37, 43 (Paul Brown's final season), 47, 51 (Woody's first season), 87 (Earle Bruce's final season), and 88 (John Cooper's first season). 

Indiana is the only team in the Big Ten that hasn't knocked off the Buckeyes a single time, since the 1980s.

Nothing too shocking from the depth chart.  Like 6 guys in the rotation at receiver.  Dobbins listed as co-starter at running back, and McCall listed as the backup there and not at H-back.  Kendall Sheffield in the mix at corner.

Hoosiers with all starters returning in the defensive backfield versus all new starters at WR for the Buckeyes. And that's a defense that shut down OSUs passing game last year.  Add to that 3 new starters in the defensive backfield for Ohio State, road game.    I smell tight game.  

34- 27

Perhaps Mister Bobby Knight might make a cameo appearance on the OSU side line?

I just don't see it brother. Kevin Wilson is a great coach, I'm a big fan of his. He's a huge part of the reason why Indiana has played Ohio State so close. He's now on Ohio State's sideline. He knows that Indiana team like the back of his hand, he'll know what to exploit and what not to. Ohio State's OL should be improved, there is plenty of talent on offense even if it is young, Mike Weber is rock solid RB and able to grind out the tough yards, and JT Barrett is the best QB in the conference with like 30 starts to his name and he's played in even more games than that.

Last but not least, Ohio State's front 7 will be way too much for Indiana to handle. This is the best front 7 that Ohio State has had in a minute, and it's deep.

edit: little talked about fact- Mike Weber is only the 3rd Ohio State RB ever to rush for 1,000+ yards as a freshman. Only Robert Smith and Maurice Clarett before him have accomplished that feat. Both of those guys were pretty good. Mike Weber gets slept on too much. He's a terrific young RB.

So you are predicting that it will be close until kickoff?

I am predicting that Ohio State will demolish Indiana. That's what I am predicting.
JT Barrett is already an excellent college QB and Kevin Wilson will get the absolute most out of him. That guy is a QB's best friend. Excellent offensive coach. Ohio State had a good OL last year, they were better run blockers than pass blockers- but the run blocking won't get any worse and the pass blocking should only improve. Mike Weber is a rock solid, dependable RB who will be on the field week in week out and eek out tough yards and keep drives going and Ohio State has a lot of young talent at RB to help Weber shoulder the load. Baugh is one of the top all-around returning TE's in the conference- if they decide to use him more in the passing game he is more than capable of producing. There is young talent in the WR corps- might not show itself game 1 but by the end of the season that unit will be more than fine.
Ohio State DL and LB's will completely overwhelm and control the Indiana offense. They will have one of the best front 7's in college football. They have 4 DE's that can really play and all have real experience in Lewis, Bosa Jr, Hubbard, and Holmes. Not many programs have that returning in 2017. They will be able to rotate in and out and stay fresh and get pressure on the QB and stuff the run almost at will. Really the only shot Indiana has is that all the new pieces in the Ohio State secondary aren't all in sync Game 1 and they are able to exploit the newbies in the passing game. But I don't see that happening if Indiana can't run the ball and the QB is going to be on his back most of the game.

My guess:

Ohio State 45
Indiana 16
