J.T. Barrett returns for another season to provide a veteran presence behind center for Ohio State.

Ohio State starts the season on the road by taking on Indiana in one of the first marquee college football games of the season. According to OddsShark, Ohio State is a 21.5 point favorite. The over-under is set at 57.5 points.

The OddsShark computer is picking Ohio State, but likes Indiana to hang around. The computer projects a 29.7-11.9 Ohio State victory which means the computer is taking Indiana to cover the spread, and the under on the win total.

Last season, both teams went 6-7 against the spread. One of the key things to watch is the potential impact of Kevin Wilson on the game. Wilson is the new Buckeys offensive coordinator, but was the Indiana head coach last season. While Wilson may not have familiarity with the new Hoosiers schemes, he does bring a knowledge of the Indiana roster.

In SB Nation’s Bill Connelly S&P+ metrics, Ohio State is ranked third while Indiana comes in a respectable 41st. What can we expect from Ohio State this season? Last season’s young Buckeyes team outperformed expectations by making the College Football Playoff.

This season, Ohio State comes back more experienced, but also has question marks around their receiving core. The Buckeyes hope the addition of Wilson as offensive coordinator can help jump start an offense that sputtered down the stretch.

Indiana is coming off a 6-7 season and a bowl appearance. Richard Lagow is expected the be the Indiana starting quarterback once again this season.

It is a rare occurrence for Indiana to host College Gameday, and start the season with what is essentially the Hoosiers Super Bowl against Ohio State. While we think Ohio State will win the game, look for Indiana to hang around, allowing them to keep the game closer than the 21.5 points Vegas projects.

Heavy’s Pick: Ohio State 31 Indiana 14. Indiana Covers +21.5 Point Spread. Under on Point Total.

In an article titled, 110 N.F.L. Brains, in the The New York Times, by authors, Joe Ward, Josh Williams and Sam Manchester, dated July 25th, 2017… and “conveniently blurred”, and copying made “deliberately problematic”!… Neuropathologist Dr. Ann McKee, is reported to have amassed evidence of “chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.!… the degenerative disease believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head!)”, afterupon her examination of 202 deceased football players (a broad survey of her findings were published on the preceding Tuesday, July 18, 2017, in the The Journal of the American Medical Association!… the myriad symptoms of which, include memory loss, confusion, depression and dementia!… and can arise years after the “career blows to the head”!)!
Of the 202 players examined, 111 of them played in the N.F.L.– and 110 of those were found to have C.T.E.!
Simply put!… the term PUBLIC SLAVERY is an apt description for those who support both football, and boxing!… and, underscores the degree of “DEMOANASTROPHOPATHY (i.e., pathic public behavior!)” rampant in America! And!… the one major omission within Dr. McKee’s official report, is the etiology (the causation!) associated with the “PUBLIC BRAIN DAMAGE” tied to the public acceptance of football!… but also– I suggest!– boxing!
Lastly, given what sundry of the CRIMINAL BACKERS of these “sports” are capable of (and e.g., the respective team backers and the managers!), I fear for the safety of the political critics of these “industries”!… and!… I wonder what MANMADE TRAGEDY awaits such critics, as a result of their public shaming of the owners and operators of these American pastimes! Either the TRUE MEDICAL COMMUNITY… AND SCIENCE!… wins the “social debate”, or the DEMOANASTROPHOPATHY wins (and in the latter scenario, that includes the owners, players, and the DISEASED PUBLIC!… and, DESPITE THE EVIDENCE– THE FACTS!)!
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
