Good luck to Chris Wells and the entire team this seson. With Kent State, Akron and Youngstown on the schedule in the same season, guard against let downs. Don't let Cream puffs on the schedule cause you to coast, or else it will cost you.

How is it, OSU is playing all three of these teams in the same season? This kind of scheduling will eventually hurt the program in Columbus.

Only two short weeks! I'm not quite sure what to think of this team yet. I wouldn't be suprised if they went undefeated, and it wouldn't suprise me if they lost 3 game...time will tell. This will be similar to the '02 National Title team in the fact that we are going to have to rely on creating turnovers (which shouldn't be hard with this Defensive group), and converting them into points. If Todd makes good decisions at QB, and Beanie, Maurice, and Dionte Johnson takes care of the ball, we should be fine. GO BUCKS!

You wanna write about the Buckeyes go work for the Columbus Dispatch! I could care less about them, they are 2-1/2 hours away. Write about the local colleges, I mean you are a local paper aren't you?
But if you still need to write about them they should not be on the front page of the sports section, I see a story about Kent and Akron, either one should have the lead story, Buckeyes on C5 works for me!

Kent and Akron are warm up schools for teams like OSU and nobody on their own campus even cares about them, let alone the ABJ buying public. If you don't like seeing it, move to Michigan.

Great athlete, poor student.

He better apply himself in the classroom, or he'll turn into another OSU 1 year wonder RB like Maurice Clarett. Already doing the marking tatoos that the jail house inmates love to wear.

Hey Troll, last time I checked Ohio State was bigger in Akron than Akron is. Nobody gives a crap about bottom feeding MAC teams except maybe you. If they did then those teams would be on the front page all the time. The paper is just giving the majority of readers what they want. If you don't want to hear about the Buckeyes then move out of Ohio because that's what it's going to take. Most people would rather read about the Buckeyes than any other team in Ohio weather they are in Akron, Cincinnati, Athens, or Bowling Green. This article is about Chris Wells, who is a beast, so take your played out Napoleonic MAC fan crap somewhere else.

P.S. Chris is going to have a monster year.

MAC teams are OK, but they're little boy football. Big Ten is big boy football. Beanie is gonna kick some serious butt this year. Maybe another OSU Heisman.
