2012 Ohio State Buckeyes Schedule

Ohio State Preview 2012

The 2011 season was tumultuous at best for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Coach Jim Tressel was gone on Memorial Day because of NCAA violations. Starting quarterback Terrell Pryor did not take a snap and other key players were suspended for different lengths last season. Despite this Interim Coach Luke Fickell was able to put together a respectable season. The Buckeyes finished 6-7 but a foundation was laid for future success. Quarterback Braxton Miller showed flashes of greatness last season. Miller led the Buckeyes in rushing with 715 yards. His passing accuracy needs improvement. Miller completed only 54 percent of his passes. Running back Dan Herron was suspended during the season but came back strong adding 675 yards in limited duty. Carlos Hyde was a pleasant surprise with 566 yards. No receiver really stood out last season and the offensive line gave up 46 sacks. On defense, Ohio State has several budding superstars. Defensive linemen John Simon and Johnathan Hankins are the best duo in the Big Ten. Linebacker Ryan Shazier progressed as the season went along and Bradley Roby has the potential to be a shut down cornerback.

Former Florida coach Urban Meyer was brought in to replace Fickell. He has some talent coming back with 16 starters nine on defense. The biggest areas of concern for Ohio State are at receiver and the offensive line. Also, Braxton Miller must develop some consistency in the passing game. The defense should be impressive with Hankins and Simon anchoring from the defensive line. Although he had a late start recruiting Meyer was able to put together an impressive class. Several of these prospects have a chance to see action early and contribute. The schedule maker is kind to Ohio State with 8 home games. Although the Buckeyes are ineligible for the Big Ten title and a bowl game a ten win season is possible. Purchase Ohio State football tickets in 2012.
