A TALE OF TWO BOSAS: Moments after Joey was ejected from the Notre Dame game — his last as a Buckeye — for targeting, little brother Nick tweeted ‘I will finish what you started.’ Those are of course big shoes to fill. Ari Wasserman notes that Nick still has his black stripe as he continues to adjust to the college level. Meanwhile, Joey is involved in a contract dispute with the Chargers that can best be described as a scorpion death match. Yesterday the Chargers put out a strongly worded statement and Joey’s camp responded that San Diego was trying to “manipulate the facts.” Bosa’s former position coach Larry Johnson told Tim May that he’s confident Joey will play this year. Right now the smart money is that Nick will have his black stripe removed before Joey dons the lightning bolts.
NO FLY ZONE: Ohio State will play five offenses this year that ranked in the top-25 in passing based on the S&P+. Outside of Gareon Conley at corner, the secondary lacks experience (but certainly not talent). How will they respond in games against Oklahoma, Indiana, Nebraska, That School Up North, or even Bowling Green? Chad Peltier takes a closer look. Eric Seger on Coach Schiano bringing intensity and consistency to the secondary.
