Opening Night College Football 2017 Free Pick – Indiana vs. Ohio State

Yes, this is not mid-season.  Yes, almost 3 TD’s is a huge number in Week 1 for anyone. Yes, I love taking dogs or laying short numbers only in Week 1. 

Yes Indiana gave OSU all they wanted last year and made a game of it at Ohio State until late in the game, but Indiana’s fired head coach Kevin Wilson is now Ohio States Offensive Coordinator.  Do ya think he wants to pull a can of whoop ass out with some bad feelings towards his ex-employer?  I do, big time, and he has QB JT Barrett and company to do so.  Barrett ran all over Indiana for 137 yards last year in a 21 point home win. 

Ohio State with 15 starters back and a lot of preseason hype but it is warranted.  They have a shut down defense (8 starters on D) that allowed just 15 ppg last year and wanting to prove something out of the gate after getting crushed 31-0 by Clemson in the post season last year.  Meyer hasn’t slept a full night since that debacle, I assure you! While the QB position is solid and the RB tandem of Weber and new-comer Dobbins will be effective behind one of the better OL’s in the Big 10 with 4 starters back, I expect OSU to throw it around and improve their passing game, starting tonight.  

An entirely new coaching staff against one of the best teams in the country, even at home, will have Indiana back on their heels early despite the prowess of their stud QB Rich Lagow, who has a big arm and a couple of big time WR’s.  Not enough gents, against a team who is a Top 5 team in the nation in my opinion and looking to make an opening day statement against a Big 10 foe.
