The Ohio State Buckeyes continue to win over college football experts and others for their dominant performances.
The latest comes from ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt. While on SportsCenter, Van Pelt expressed his surprise at how great Ohio State has been despite losing 12 players in the first four rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft.
“When you lose a dozen players to the National Football League and all are taken in the first four rounds, it would be more than reasonable to presume that your team would regress. The math tells you that’s one more than can be on the field at any given time. And it’s a dozen high-level players. Who could absorb that type of attrition and not miss a bit?”
Apparently, it’s Ohio State.
Van Pelt praised the Buckeyes for their “ruthless efficiency” and “clinical beating” of Oklahoma despite being a team made up of more than 40 percent freshmen.
