1. Ohio State going forward should be … Ohio State
Justin Fields is an amazing talent. But so was Troy Smith, So was Terrelle Pryor, and Braxton Miller, and JT Barrett, and Cardale Jones – at least for a stretch – and Dwayne Haskins. And so was Joe Burrow – and he proved it at LSU.
If Fields comes in and leads Ohio State to a few national titles, then yeah, he’ll rise up among the pack. And of course the program is a lot better by getting a guy who could turn into an NFL franchise-maker a few years from now. But Ohio State was going to be great with or without him.
He just makes things a whole lot easier, especially with the transition from Urban Meyer to Ryan Day.
The machine keeps on going, and now, it appears it’ll keep on rolling with yet another special talent leading the way.
