I think something must have been lost in translation, since your data supports my message 100%.

They don't scare me at all.
My bad, I read your post wrong.

Yes, Oregon is all flash and no smash. Even in their hey day they couldn't hang with the Buckeyes. In the meantime OSU has gotten quite a bit better, while Oregon has regressed.
I dunno,hopefully tOSU can replace this exodus but that's a tall order.At least Fields should be healthy heading into Oregon in September

LoL, I was about to respond to @847badgerfan by noting that his post is probably a good candidate for least surprising development of the decade.

Bucks are in good shape up front. It's the back end that will have to replace a lot. Depth back there will be an issue.

 Those Pac-12 zebras are still waiting to kick you in the teeth!

This. I've seen so many better teams head out west only to get hosed by the amateur refs in the Pac. This will be a win for Oregon, no matter how much better the Buckeyes are.

Oregon's no pushover, the Autzen crowd is really loud and enthusiastic, the stadium really holds the noise in, and there are those Pac-12 zebras.  You've got to be more than just "better" than Oregon to win there.

I think they will use B10 refs.  I figure the most important thing to have returning is QB, and then OL.  A program like Ohio State will generally have running backs and wide outs aplenty, same with LBs and defensive backs and DLs.  Usually.  They can of course find lightning in one of those players.

Shaun Wade coming back. A big and surprising return.

like his choice, not just because it helps the team, but I think it was the best move for him.  He can finish his degree, gain more experience and be a leader on a young squad on the back end.   I think it will increase his success chances next year at the next level. I was listening to Lavar Arington on Speak for Yourself, and he provided so success rate numbers which shows that guys who stay and finish college tend to make a longer career in the NFL and be more successful during and after their playing days (they were discussing if Tua should stay or go).  While guys like Chase Young, Bosa's, Zeke, etc. tend to be the prime focus and are successful as well, the majority of guys are not like that, and at that level, like he said, everyone is good.

I think a player who is a legit first rounder should go NFL (in general).  Life is short, football is shorter.  A lesser player might be advised to go if his family is in dire financial need and he won't graduate anyway.

This had him going first in the second round.  No RBs in the first round.

Second round and maybe not even that, which is why I like the choice.  Its a gamble for sure with injury etc., but if he has a strong year, leads the young guys and produces, he will move up to a 1st rounder next year I think.
