1) Ohio State looks headed for a down year
The Buckeyes struggled in week one at Minnesota before getting things going in the second half to get a win. Unfortunately, they were not so lucky this week as the Oregon Ducks came into Ohio Stadium and dominated the Buckeyes. The most disturbing thing may be watching fans act like it’s a coaching issue! This is not a coaching issue; the Buckeyes are a young team with a Freshman Quarterback; the Buckeyes will slowly improve as the season goes on because Ryan Day is an outstanding coach.
The Florida State win was decent but let’s face the facts, these are not the Charlie Ward Seminoles anymore, and yesterday the Irish went life and death with the Toledo Rockets. Notre Dame’s schedule is tough, and it looks like they could be headed to a 4 or 5 loss season.
Arkansas totally dismantled the Longhorns yesterday in a renewal of a decades-long rival that had been non-existent as of late. The Razorbacks brought back the glory days in a 41-20 win over Texas. I am not saying Arkansas will be a top 10 or even top 20 team, but the future is starting to look bright in Razorback land.
I will give you that these two teams would not be big surprises, but they would be small surprises, and with Ohio State down, it’s the perfect time for both teams to get it going. Both Iowa and Penn State play great defense. Iowa has now throttled Indiana and beat a highly ranked Iowa State team on the road. Penn State got a road win at Wisconsin, and yesterday’s win was over a solid Ball State team.
