So what’s the deal for this year? With the return of nine offensive starters and five defensive starters, I can see the Buckeye nation pumped for the start of the 2010 college football season. I would love to see Ohio State set the record again for attendance to a spring game, and by the look of last year’s outcome, the Bucks have a very good chance of doing that.
Finishing 11-2 last year and returning fourteen starters will place the Buckeyes in the top five preseason for the start of the 2010 season. With Pryor back along with his favorite target, Posey, the Buckeyes should have one hell of an offence this year. I’m excited to see how well the Bucks do this year, especially since the Big Ten will be a much stronger conference. One player I’m really looking forward to watching is Jordan Hall. The high school teammate of Terrelle Pryor didn’t receive much playing time last year but from what I saw of him, he was VERY impressive. He is not that big of a running back but he runs very fast with A LOT of power. Jaamal Berry is another running back I'm looking forward to watching next year. The Florida native is said to have a ton of speed and is very agile.
On the other side of the ball the Bucks will have trouble replacing Coleman and Gibson but the early use of their freshman will only make them better. With the return of hard-hitting Brian Rolle and Ross Homan at the linebacker positions, the Ohio State defense should be very solid this year. Hopefully they are as good as the offense should be.
