Is it time for Ohio State fans to panic? The Buckeyes have not overpowered any of their three opponents so far this season, and the defense continues to struggle. No margin for error exists after the loss to Oregon, and a difficult schedule in the Big Ten remains. But coach Ryan Day still boasts one of the most talented and deepest rosters in college football.
Some experts are already writing off Ohio State due to the defensive issues and some slight inconsistency from C.J. Stroud at quarterback. Still, the Buckeyes are not the only perennial power that is off to a slow start — Clemson and Oklahoma have had some similar challenges.
On Tuesday's episode of the "Cover 3" podcast, CBS Sports analyst and former Florida State quarterback Danny Kanell said he likes Ohio State to bounce back and salvage its season.
