Kirk Herbstreit isn’t impressed one bit with Ohio State.

The Buckeyes sit with a 9-1 record this season and are 6-1 in B1G play. They posted an impressive 26-6 win over Michigan State in East Lansing on Saturday and a win this weekend against Maryland means OSU will enter the season finale against Michigan with a chance to win the East again.

For most programs, that’s pretty darn good.

But Herbstreit isn’t buying into Ohio State’s success this season, and he’s not satisfied with the way it performed against the Spartans last weekend. In fact, the ESPN analyst believes his former team is in serious trouble if things don’t change.

Ohio online sports betting is officially launching on January 1, 2023. Ohio will join other Big Ten states where sports betting has become legalized such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois and more.

“You guys seem to be giving Ohio State a lot of credit for winning in East Lansing,” Herbstreit said, according to Brad Crawford of 247Sports. “But to me, the MVP of the game was a punter and Terry McLaurin hustling down there to down punts inside the 5. If Ohio State plays the way it has the last six or seven weeks, the game in Columbus won’t even be close. Michigan will take care of business. The on thing we’ll learn is how much a rivalry game really matters.”

Ohio State’s rushing attack has looked better over the last few weeks, but there are still some serious questions about this team. Despite their No. 10 ranking, the Buckeyes really haven’t impressed the selection committee.

Herbstreit isn’t on board, either.

Michigan hasn’t defeated Ohio State since 2011, but this Wolverines team is the best of the Jim Harbaugh era. Urban Meyer might be fielding his worst team since arriving in Columbus.

But the story could change when the two teams line up in two weeks.

It doesn’t sound like Herbstreit is a believer in the Buckeyes and thinks Michigan will make light work of their rival on Nov. 24.
