Buckeye Bits: Dabo says Ohio State should not be in playoff, does not think refs will help him win two years in a row

All of the latest Ohio State news from around the beat and beyond.

This college football season has been an absolute shit show and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. The most recent buzz is due to a 5-0 Ohio State team (hopefully soon to be 6-0) maintaining their No. 4 spot in the latest CFP rankings, along with Clemson, Notre Dame and Alabama who have each played ten games.

As you can probably imagine, Ohio State playing literally half the amount of games is not sitting well with a few loud-mouth coaches...

First of all, Dan, you lost your right to have an opinion on this after you lost two games— specifically after you lost at home to a 3-5 LSU team as three TD favorites because your team is undisciplined. And secondly, Dabo, your blatant fear of playing Ohio State is quite the compliment, and pretty much proves why Ohio State deserves to be there, don’t you think?

That’s enough Dabo-talk for one day though. Let’s get into the news and notes surrounding the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes.

Good news (for once)...

Northwestern’s and Ohio State’s family members will be the only spectators allowed inside Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday. Parents and guests of the Buckeyes haven’t been to a game since Nov. 7 when they hosted Rutgers.

Ohio State is among 11 semifinalists for the Joe Moore Award, which honors college football’s best offensive line.

Gonna be honest— I don’t know how PFF College does their grading, but I do know that Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave are two of the best WRs in the country so...this checks out I guess?

Speaking of Brian Hartline’s gang, Ohio State is about to add THIS to a room that is already a zillion feet deep.

This week is a big one for Ohio State, as the Big Ten awards begin on Tuesday, followed by signing day on Wednesday— both of which should be pretty successful/eventful events for the Scarlet and Gray.

The awards will begin on Tuesday with the offense, followed by Wednesday with the defense and then finish on Thursday with the special teams and Coach of the Year.

I mean there were a lot of surprises but I’m just reposting this again so we can all look at No. 5 Rutgers above No. 6 Michigan hahahahaha

In case you want to start getting to know the Buckeyes’ next opponent, Eleven Warriors has you covered...

It’s always good to have goals.

Around the hardwood...

“Day-to-day” seems good for Liddell. “Week-to-week” seems bad for Towns.

Our own Matt Tamanini has everything we learned from the Buckeyes’ win over Cleveland State on Sunday. Come for the analysis, stay for the Seth Towns pun.

From everywhere else...

It’s going to be The Cleveland Baseball Team, isn’t it?

This is terrifying and so incredibly sad. Praying that Keyontae pulls through.
