  • Improvement by the Ohio State linebackers and the emergence of freshmen Tuf Borland while filling in for the injured Chris Worley.
  • The status of Grimes and if Ohio State coaches should be regretful they elected not to redshirt him.
  • Victor’s potential, whether he has fully arrived on a consistent basis and just how good he might be in the future.
  • Ward’s emergence as a shut-down corner thus far this season, which has resulted in just 1 reception allowed in the past five games against him.
  • More on the college basketball scandal, which led to a commission formed on Wednesday that includes Ohio State’s Gene Smith.
  • Will the college basketball committee be successful with its attempt to fix the sport?
