Ohio State vs Youngstown State

August 30th

Overview:

    Youngstown State returns to Columbus for another big paycheck.  I understand why this game is happening but I don’t have to like it.  Jim Tressel is helping out his old program by getting them some national exposure and a nice chunk of change. 

Preview:

    YSU returns 16 starters in 2008.  The biggest loss for the Penguins will be QB Tom Zetts, while Tom didn’t light up the world with his arm but he was the only Penguin to take significant snaps in 2007.  Thankfully for YSU they return starting running backs Kevin Smith and Ben Lane, their top receiver Ferlando Williams and four of their five starting offensive linemen.  This game will be in hand early and Ohio State will be testing out the Boekman / Pryor dual threat offensive attack starting late in the third quarter.

Outcome:

    Ohio State is faster, stronger, bigger, tougher, deeper, more experienced and more talented.  That said, Jim Tressel will keep the game from getting out of control and embarrassing his old team.  A lot of young players will get time on the field including super-recruit Terrelle Pryor.  Beanie Wells will knock out 100+ yards and a touchdown in the first half as he starts his campaign for the Heisman Trophy.
