Buckeye Battle Cry Roundtable: Ohio State vs. Michigan and the Buckeyes’ running woes

So, what about that running game for Ohio State? Our writers discuss how concerned they are when talking about matching up with Michigan. #GoBucks

Every now and then we like to get the debate going here on Buckeyes Wire. We have a little roundtable segment we like to call our “Buckeye Battle Cry.” We throw out a hot-button topic and each of the three writers takes turns debating an answer.

There are varying perspectives for a trio that doesn’t agree very often, and sometimes the virtual mud flies. Other times (seldom), there are rainbows, butterflies and agreement among the group.

This time we discuss the much-maligned running game — or lack thereof — of what we’ve seen from Ohio State over the last three weeks. It may not hurt the Buckeyes until it plays a team that has a physical brand to it, but that day is coming, namely when some certain winged helmets invade Ohio Stadium.

So the question this week: Are you at all concerned about what you’ve seen over the last few weeks with Ohio State’s run game, and will it be a problem when OSU and Michigan play on November 26?

Mark will set the baseline for this one …

This time we are jumping on this love for Michigan. The Wolverines have looked fantastic, but against two very bad teams in the nonconference. Still, the media seems to be falling in love with what’s going on in “that state up north” — especially with quarterback J.J. McCarthy apparently being the second coming of Patrick Mahomes. We’re sure you’ve noticed too.

So the question this week: How worried should Ohio State fans be about Michigan this season?
