Well, the Buckeyes survived, and so did the thousands of Buckeye fans sitting in the sweltering confines of Ohio Stadium on a hot August day. We got to see glimpses of a potent offense, some less than stellar play during the second and third quarters, and the first Script Ohio of the season. All in all, a good day.
Although the Buckeyes won over a game Buffalo squad, 40-20, the team has a long way to go. The offensive line struggled and at times the defense did, too. It wasn’t clear whether it was jitters or blown assignments or the difficulties that you often see when players start a college game for the first time, but it’s something that the coaches we need to work on. If ever a first game presented a coaching opportunity, this was it.
