Mercedes-Benz Of Easton’s 2015 Ohio State Football Preview

September 3rd, 2015 by

As your hometown Mercedes-Benz auto dealership in Columbus, Ohio, we are proud of our number-one-ranked Buckeyes. All of us here at our Columbus Mercedes-Benz dealership are looking forward to the kickoff of the fall college football season. Like everyone in Columbus, we’re hoping Coach Urban Meyer will have the firepower for the Buckeyes to repeat as national champions.

While earning another national college football championship is no easy task, the Buckeyes are already a favorite to repeat. The squad reloads with lots of talent and will be a tough opponent to overcome.

An Explosive Offense

On the offensive side of the ball, running back Ezekiel Elliot is a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender. He may break the 2,000-yard threshold this year. Curtis Samuel and freshman Mike Weber also look to contribute to the Buck’s explosive running game. Other strong points are a team of three capable quarterbacks – Brandon Miller, Cardale Jones, and J.T. Barrett – who will be throwing to a talented corps of receivers, including wideout Michael Thomas. Thomas had a stellar season last year, catching 54 passes for 799 yards. Jalin Marshall and a healthy Dontre Wilson, along with tight end Nick Vannett are also sure to give opposing defenses a lot to handle.

Additionally, All-Big Ten candidates Taylor Decker and Pat Elflein lead a veteran group of four returning starters on the offensive line.

A Talented Defense Returns

Defensively, the Buckeyes are poised to return a group of players that promises to strike terror into the hearts of opposing offensive coordinators. Last year, the Buckeyes shut down many otherwise potent offenses. The defense held opponents to an average of just five yards per play, under four yards per rush, and only 1/3rd of third-down plays. Even more impressive was the Buckeyes’ 45 sacks and six defensive touchdowns.

The defense centers on defensive end Joey Bosa, last year’s Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Offenses will no doubt double-team Bosa, leaving other players like tackle Adolphus Washington to explode into opposing backfields.

Another defensive leader looks to be Joshua Perry, who hopes to repeat his outstanding 124-tackle season. Other defensive standouts include Darron Lee, middle backer Raekwon McMillan, and Eli Apple, the Bucks’ top corner. The position of safety is in good hands with Tyvis Powell and Vonn Bell.

Special Teams A Strong Point

The Buckeyes also return a talented special teams unit. Placekicker Sean Nuemberger and powerful punter Cameron Johnston, considered one of the best punters in the Big Ten, should again contribute to making special teams a standout group to watch.

Poised To Repeat

With a three-year 38-3 record, Coach Urban Meyer is looking to solidify his status as college football’s top coach. He’s surrounded himself with a talented and hard-working group of assistant coaches, including offensive coordinators Tim Beck and Ed Warinner, and defensive coordinators Chris Ash and Luke Fickell.

The Buckeyes return a superb, veteran team that knows how to win. And football pundits see no reason to believe that Ohio State won’t continue to be the preeminent college football power this upcoming 2015 season. Seven returning starters, talent in all phases of the game, and a desire to repeat as national champions are sure to fuel the Buckeyes’ success.
