Through three games this season the Ohio State Buckeyes have been less than impressive. The number one ranked team in the nation is coming off of a 20-13 win against Northern Illinois, a team they were a 35 point favorite against. Cardale Jones got the start and after going four of nine and throwing two interceptions he was benched for J.T. Barrett who was only slightly better as both quarterbacks failed to play well and were careless with the football... So what does the doctor cue up when your team is struggling? A directional Michigan! Ohio State will play host to the Western Michigan Broncos this Saturday as they try and finally get out of first gear offensively.
The most talented team in the nation has yet to play like it in the 2015 season. After last weeks poor performances by Jones and Barrett a quarterback controversy has arose and Urban Meyer was contemplating making a change. "We're going to have a really clear starter this week, at the right time," Meyer said earlier in the week. "I kind of already know."
"We've got the mindset that if we have to win the game 3-0, that's just how we're going to win the game," linebacker Raekwon McMillan said. "We can't depend on anybody else." The Buckeyes defense will have to continue bringing dominant, opportunistic performances to avoid an upset while the offense tries to figure things out.
