2010 Ohio State Buckeyes: Spring Football Is In The Air

Spring practice will begin in roughly three weeks, but many of the players have been working out on their own in their spare time, preparing for what could be an extra-special season for our beloved Buckeyes.

After an amazing display in the 2010 Rose Bowl, QB Terrelle Pryor (who had off season arthroscopic knee surgery) will be entering his junior season with higher expectations that ever before.

The comparison was and has almost always been there before, but after his Rose Bowl performance, many now believe (and hope) that TP evolves this season as Vince Young did in his junior year of 2005 for the Texas Longhorns.

The Spring Game is set for April 24 in Ohio Stadium. Last year, the Buckeyes drew a Spring Game record of 95,722 fans, and I wouldn't be surprised if they topped that this April.

There are several questions that will need to be answered.

Who will emerge as the featured running back or will it will more of the running back-by-committee approach?

Who will replace Thaddeus Gibson at DE?

Who will replace Kurt Coleman at S?

Will Etienne Sabino finally get his shot to start at LB, or will someone else take that spot, perhaps Dorian Bell if not Sabino?

What will be the pecking order at WR after DeVier and Dane?

One thing is certain—The Spring Game is only six weeks away and I, like the rest of the Buckeye fans worldwide, can't hardly wait to get my sneak peek at what the 2010 Buckeyes may have in store for us all!

Here's a small dose of what Ohio State Football may bring us all in 2010 from our good friend Rob (aka Kitchel22130 on YouTube) to help get us all get by until April 24.

  1. As a general rule, one year more in the JT program means one year better. That did not appear to be the case with the team following the last NC bowl game. We had roughly 10 returning starters on both sides of the ball and we got worse not better.

    I think that is an aberration. The staff seems to be ready to make sure that does not happen. Player/leaders need to emerge.

    The talent seems to be there. Replacements for lost players appear to be uber talented. The table is set, the time is right, lady luck needs to be on our side!

  2. Watch out for Nathan Williams replacing Gibson. He's got all the physical tools, plus, unlike Thad in my opinion, he goes hard on every down.
