Let’s wheel back around to Ohio State’s absurd number of over 75,000 fans. That outdoes most college programs attendance numbers for a regular season game!
But it isn’t hard to see why fans are excited. Sure, gone are some important members of the offensive line and CJ Stroud, but a pair of capable QBs in Kyle McCord and Devin Brown are set to run an offense returning all its RB production from last season, as well as perhaps the top wide receiver in college football, Marvin Harrison Jr.
One thing these numbers have proved more than anything. You can never doubt the passion of B1G fans.
