What the Ohio State football program should do best offensively this season

The Ohio State football team is shaping up to be one of the best teams in the country this season. Defensively they will be one of the best teams in the country. That’s especially true in the secondary, where they got even better with the addition of Caleb Downs.

There is a bit more turnover in attack. The Buckeyes lose their best player in Marvin Harrison Jr. They also get a new quarterback for the third time in as many years. With Kyle McCord now at Syracuse, Will Howard is the likely starter to spark the offense.

So if changes happen in these two position groups, what will they do best on offense? They retain TreVeyon Henderson and add Quinshon Judkins to the running back room, but they have a new running backs coach and a new offensive coordinator.

This team still needs to be a passing team first and foremost. That should still be what they are good at. Despite being without Harrison Jr. sit, they still have the best receiver group in the country. They have another first-round pick in that room with Emeka Egbuka after he decided to stay.

With Chip Kelly calling the play, I would expect him to come up with some creative passing plays to get Egbuka the ball as much as possible. Carnell Tate should be the number two receiver and Jeremiah Smith is trending to be the third receiver as a true freshman.

Howard should be a slight upgrade over McCord at quarterback. While he doesn’t have the highest ceiling of the group, he is still the most experienced and should have the confidence needed to drive Ohio State football down the field when they need a big drive, something McCord did against Notre Dame, but failed to do so. do against Michigan.

The offensive numbers should be a little closer to what the Buckeyes have in 2022. Either way, they’re going to be a really good offense.
