For the most part, the Buckeyes did exactly what we thought they’d do against the Beavers… win in dominating fashion. We all expected the offense to put up some big numbers, but I’m not sure anyone expected that kind of output.

On the flip side, we we’re all taken aback that a below average Oregon State team was able to put up 31 on what was supposed to be one of the best defenses in the country. Let’s just chalk that up to first game of the season stuff and trust that a new crop of linebackers and defensive backs will turn things around.

Up next, the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers. This will also mark the first week Urban has been with the team since early August, and I’m sure he’s been itching to get that whistle back around his neck.

Rutgers got off to a nice start last week with a 35-7 victory over Texas State, but coming into the Horseshoe to face the Buckeyes will be a bit more of a daunting task.
