Every Ohio State Fan, Take A Deep Breath and Relax. It's Going To Be OK

The legendary singer Bob Marley once sang everything's gonna be alright, and every Ohio State fan better listen to those words because it will be OK.

The Ohio State Buckeyes went to Indiana to play the Hoosiers on Saturday afternoon, and it wasn't precisely the prettiest offense performance you will ever see. However, it did the job, and some Buckeye fans were unhappy.

Ohio State lost their starting quarterback, C.J. Stroud, to the NFL this season, so there was an ongoing quarterback competition between Kyle McCord and Devin Brown during camp. McCord was named the starter earlier last week.

The New Offense

Ohio State's offense took the field on Saturday, and the passing game needed to be improved. McCord threw for 239 yards, and his only touchdown pass was called back because of a penalty.

The passing game never could get going, but the three-headed monster of running backs Trayanum, Henderson, and Williams carried the way.

Of course, the offense looked terrible, and anyone with a set of eyeballs noticed it, but there was no need for anyone to panic.

Yes, there is a new quarterback under center, but we are dealing with one of the best offensive-minded head coaches in Ryan Day and a great bunch of skill position players in Marvin Harrsion Jr., Emeka Egbuka, Cade Stover, Julian Fleming, TreVeyon Henderson, and a bunch more.

Day has a great track record of figuring things out, and we can even go back to two years ago when Stroud started his first game against Minnesota. It looked like he didn't know how to throw a football in the first half, and then he blew it against Oregon the next week. Day did a pretty good job figuring it out, and he will do the same thing this time.

Ohio State Will Be Great Don't Worry

Look on the bright side: The defense gave up only three points. How many times have you watched the Buckeyes defense over the past five years and said If only this team knew how to play defense, we would win something? Well, here you go; the defense looked great, and I know it was only Indiana, but they're also a Big Ten school with some excellent players.

I would much rather have the defense play lights out and the offense struggle now because I know the offense will be fixed. It's only a matter of time before this offense rolls like it does every single season, and hopefully, it's clicking by September 23rd when they head to Notre Dame.
