ESPN Expert Says This Is Ohio State's Biggest Weakness

This is Ohio State's biggest weakness according to one ESPN expert.

Ohio State has been one of the best programs in the country over the past few years. Urban Meyer churns out NFL ready talent at a consistent rate, and has the Buckeyes in contention for the College Football Playoff almost every year since its inception.

However, even a great team like Ohio State has weaknesses.

ESPN's Brian Bennett had this to say:

Ohio State: The downfield passing game. J.T. Barrett struggled to get the ball to his receivers in the vertical passing game last year, as the Buckeyes averaged just 6.8 yards per pass attempt (88th in the FBS). New offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day were brought in to fix the passing issues, and Barrett will need to build chemistry this spring with a fleet of young wideouts.

Ohio State sured up its offense by hiring Kevin Wilson in the offseason. That move should work wonders on the Buckeyes passing game.
