  • For the first time in a long time, the Ohio State defense entered the season without a player known nationally. But it’s still the same defense the Big Ten has grown to hate, Dustin Dopirak writes.

  1. The article about the 3 ex-coaches was interesting. The problem has been identified for years. The solution was ignored for years.It has always been my contention that hired coaches didn’t get dumb from drinking the Bloomington water.
    The stadium up-grade is very important. Last weekends game was important. Tomorrow’s game is important.
    Go back and investigate the 1967 team. Both lines were dominated by fourth and fifth year players. The linebckers were experienced. The team has been remembered for Gonso/Isenbarger/Butcher but that is the wrong perception. There was a reason for the team going 9-1, 6-4, 4-6 and Gonso/Isenbarger/Butcer were still there.
