In each of the first three games of the season, the Ohio State Buckeyes ran for at least 200 yards as a team – by all accounts, a successful rushing attack.
Perhaps the expectations are unrealistic, but some fans have been clamoring for more.
Why did the Buckeyes only have one running back eclipse 100 yards rushing in the first three games? Why doesn’t the offense look more like it did with J.K. Dobbins or Ezekiel Elliott? Why hasn’t Trey Sermon exploded on to the scene after rushing for 2,000 yards over three seasons at Oklahoma? Why hasn’t Master Teague dominated conference opponents so far?
I have a better question – who cares? It’s a team game and the Buckeyes clearly have depth in the backfield.
I think some folks have gotten really used to Ohio State having astronomical success and completely dominating teams. Nothing is wrong with the run
