Ohio State enjoyed a free weekend this past week, giving the Buckeyes a chance to rest following the 6-0 start. Not that the team really needed that idle week considering how well it’s played through the front half of the schedule.

Still, Ohio State and head coach Ryan Day took advantage of having a weekend off to do some self-scouting and assessment to see where the team can improve. While Day says there are some areas to clean up a bit, there haven’t been any glaring concerns through the first six games.

Essentially, Day says it’s the “little things” that Ohio State needs to improve on moving forward.

During the off week, the Ohio State coaching staff also took an opportunity to evaluate each player on the roster. Now, every Buckeye has three things he needs to focus on improving for the final six games of the regular season.

With Ohio State off to a 6-0 start and beating every team in its path by at least 24 points, it’s almost a little scary to think about how much better the Buckeyes can be, and what they’ll look like out of a bye week.

Ohio State will be back on the field on Friday night in Evanston, taking on Northwestern in a B1G Championship Game rematch.
