The Ohio State eleven had multiple bouts with COVID last season. If affected by multiple players in multiple different games. Many were hoping that it wouldn’t be a problem this season with the vaccine beginning. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. It looks like starting center Harry Miller didn’t make the trip to Minneapolis due to COVID. meaning the Buckeyes will now have a fresh quarterback and a fresh center starting their first games ever, on the road, during a game where it’ll likely rain. that’s not the perfect scenario for the Buckeyes to start out their season. It’s incredibly frustrating for this virus to still be affecting Ohio State and the way they’re ready to play their games. It’s getting to be interesting to ascertain what percentage games COVID continues to affect this team.
As far because the game tonight goes, Luke Wypler will find yourself filling certain Miller along the offensive line. I’m wondering what proportion chemistry Stroud and Wypler have since Wypler hasn’t really gotten many first-team reps. I’m wondering how which will affect snaps within the shotgun. This should just be a minor nuisance for the Buckeyes. Their offense remains too talented to be stopped by Minnesota, even with a replacement quarterback and center. Both of them just need to not make mistakes, and therefore the remainder of the playmaker’s will lookout of the remainder.
This does put more pressure on the run from Master Teague and TreyVeon Henderson. If they’re great, then Miller missing the sport isn’t an enormous deal. This was already getting to be a replacement offensive line combination, so moving another piece shouldn’t kill them. Hopefully, this is often the last time writing a piece of writing about how Ohio State is missing a player thanks to COVID.
