A great little article about the first Ohio State depth chart has a few interesting tidbits in it. What jumped out at me first was that Zach Boren, brother of Justin and true freshman of meh recruiting rankings is actually listed as the starter at fullback. The article mentions that FB is not really a starting position at OSU because they will mostly use 3 wide receiver sets, but I still thought it was interesting to see Boren at the top of the depth chart.
Most interesting to me, though, was the last part of the article:
"Three true freshmen cracked the OL two-deep: Corey Linsley at left guard, Jack Mewhort at center and Marcus Hall at right tackle. One thing to remember, when Adams returns from suspension, he could go back to second-team left tackle, which could bump Shugarts over to right tackle and Hall loses his spot in the two-deep."
Adams is recently suspended redshirt freshman Mike Adams, a highly regarded recruit who was a member of the heralded "Brew Crew." Shugarts is redshirt freshman J.B. Shugarts, another member of said crew.
This whole paragraph intrigues me because it shows how young Ohio State is at offensive line, similar to Michigan on defense. The 2-deep includes Adams/Hall, Shugarts, true sophomore center Mike Brewster (a starter who had a good season last year), Mewhort, and Linsley. That means that HALF (!) of Ohio State's 2-deep on the line are the same age as Patrick Omameh and Ricky Barnum (or younger).
So, Ohio State is fairly thin on experience on the offensive line (a unit that underperformed last season), they have young wide receivers, and they have very little depth behind Terrelle Pryor. Do not be surprised if Ohio State sustains some injuries on offense, loses a game or two that they should not due to their inexperience, and potentially limps into Michigan Stadium at the end of the year for a very winnable game (meaning OSU is the favorite, but barely). Oh, and Iowa wins the Big Ten because of it. Had to throw that in there
