It’s become a yearly tradition for Athlon Sports to ask several anonymous B1G coaches what they think of opposing schools within the conference. And the responses never disappoint.

As Athlon Sports released its 2018 edition, several B1G coaches provided huge compliments to traditional conference power Ohio State. No one had anything negative to say about Urban Meyer or the Buckeyes.

One coach was surprised Ohio State lost a single game last fall. Another thinks they could be even better in 2018 than they were last year offensively.

Here are some of the best comments regarding the Buckeyes from Athlon Sports:

They are so darn good at just about every position on the field. You wonder how they lose. Maybe that’s why when they do lose, it’s the end of the world. That’s a tough way to coach, I’ll tell you that. It’s tough for any of us to lose a game in this conference. But Urban (Meyer) has it going so well there, when they lose, it’s like a death in the family.

I have no idea how they lost once last year, much less twice. They are that much better, talent-wise, than everyone in our conference.

I realize people are going to think this is blasphemy, but I think they’re going to be better offensively this year without J.T. Barrett. One thing about J.T., he always knew where to go with the ball. I think Dwayne Haskins, if he’s making the same smart decisions, will have a huge season. He’s a better thrower and has a better arm.

Athlon didn’t just focus on Ohio State, it included all 14 B1G programs, and it’s certainly worth your time. There are some good, bad and even a few ugly comments that are interesting to read.
