If they end up playing USF, BC, or someone of that nature, they could find themselves on the smiling side of a 41-14 score.
Getting there is the question. They can lose any of their 5 games if they don't execute well. Wisconsin, Illinois, and MSU are clearly below them, but are capable of knocking them off. At Penn State and at Michigan are going to be intense, very close games. They won't necessarily have to play poorly to lose. It's not a slam dunk by any stretch of the imagination.
I think this team is better as a whole then last year, but they are not as explosive on offense. The margin for error is smaller.
I'm a homer, but I'm also a realist. I predicted 3 losses for OSU last year. Ohio State just got lucky that Morelli regressed and Michigan can't stop any spread offenses. Ohio State was over hyped and overrated last year. That wasn't really anyone's fault though. They played at Texas and murdered them and they beat an undefeated Michigan team. Nobody knew how overrated those teams were. That happens sometimes.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
