If I Was in Charge: Ohio State Football Would Never Lose Again
Ohio State has not won a national championship since 2014. The Buckeyes have consistently lost no more than two games each season since then. As a fan and a professional journalist, I believe that this is unacceptable. If I were in charge of Ohio State football, I would make simple changes to ensure that the Buckeyes never lose another game again.
Get Every Recruit They Want
The key to winning football games is getting the best players, and Ohio State needs to get every recruit they want. If there is a “5” and a star next to their name, Ohio State must have them. The Buckeyes need to be willing to pay a king’s ransom to land them all. Ohio State is only a two and a half hour flight away from any major Florida airport, so there’s no need to worry about recruits who want to be closer to home. With a roster full of 85 five-star recruits, Ohio State will never have to worry about other teams having better players.
The Offense Would Never Have a Bad Day
Ohio State’s offense would never have a bad day if I were in charge. Every generation has an offense that changes the way we think about football, and Ohio State’s offense would be the next generation. The Buckeyes would be dynamic on the ground and in the air, utilizing the best of both worlds. I would keep it simple yet effective, like Knute Rockne’s Notre Dame Box alignment that inspired my pyramid of success. The Buckeyes would score more points than their opponents in every game.
Never Lose to Lesser Opponents
Ohio State must never lose to lesser opponents. Every loss, no matter how small, is unacceptable. If the Buckeyes are supposed to win a game, they must win it. The team must always be prepared for every game, regardless of the opponent. With the best players and the best offense, there’s no excuse for losing to anyone.
The Defense Only Gives Up a Few Points Per Year
Ohio State’s defense must only give up a few points per year. The Buckeyes must dominate on defense as well as offense. With the best players and the best coaches, this would be possible. The defense would shut down every opponent, limiting them to just a few points per game
The key to Ohio State’s success is straightforward: get the best players, have the best coaches, and score more points than the opponent. My foolproof plan for Ohio State would ensure that the Buckeyes never lose another game and live up to their potential as a championship-winning team.
- Ohio State has not won a national championship since 2014.
- The Buckeyes have consistently lost no more than two games each season since then.
- The Buckeyes lost to Virginia Tech in their national championship year of 2014.
If I were in charge of Ohio State football, I would guarantee that they never lose a game again. By getting the best players, having the best coaches, and scoring more points than the opponent, the Buckeyes would be unstoppable. It’s time for Ohio State to live up to their potential and dominate football like they should.
