SBNation's Bill Connelly's cautiously optimistic on Ohio State

This team had quite a few flaws last year, and while throwing star recruits at holes can sometimes work as a patch, it's not a given that it will work. The running game is going to be incredible, but there's no guarantee the passing game will be better. The pass rush probably isn't going to be worse despite the turnover, but it might not improve. And even if the Buckeyes can more capably pressure the quarterback, do we know that the run defense isn't going to stumble with an almost entirely new front seven?
