Q: Are there any trap games on OSU’s schedule this year?

A: In terms of a true “trap game” I see the match in West Lafayette against Purdue being that game if the Buckeyes are not careful. The Boilermakers have a recent history of derailing the Buckeyes’ season and this year they will look to do the same especially since the game is at home.

Q: Do you think we should read into Penn State’s near downfall on opening day?

A: Yes and no, here is why. Yes because Penn State did not look like a Playoff contender Saturday afternoon. Adjusting to a new offensive coordinator and compensating for and replacing the losses of Saquon Barkley and Mike Gesicki will take time.

Also, no because the Nittany Lions are loaded with talent including a leader and Heisman hopeful at quarterback, Trace McSorley. Only one game has been played so we cannot be too quick to judge a team with the potential for an outstanding season and s high many have set for James Franklin’s squad.
