The crew from 1460 The Fan tackles the week's biggest sports questions.Ted Holbrook Scott Torgerson Milan Jordan Tony Castricone Mike Ricordati What can the Buckeyes do to add excitement, and scoring, to their offense? Let Terrelle Pryor throw the ball on first down and open up the offense. Watch film of the Sooners- Longhorns game - that's how you play offense. Throw the ball. Anything that isn't so predictable even a casual fan can tell what play will be run next. Instill the forward pass. Pass the ball!!! What's your prediction for the score of the OSU-Michigan State game? Ohio State, 27-17. Sparty is good, but the Buckeyes will get great performances from Pryor and Beanie Wells to pull away late. Ohio State, 23-13. I don't think Michigan State is that good. A low-scoring game, 17-14. The team that scores a non-offensive touchdown wins. MSU, 17-16. It's the 10th anniversary of Plaxico Burress and Black Saturday. Bucks lose, 31-24 With so many ranked-team upsets again this year, is it time to get serious about a college football playoff? There will never be a true playoff - I've given up on that dream. But I think we will get a four-team playoff in the near future. Sure. Everyone keeps losing, and the Buckeyes need to get it together so they can move up. Yes. As much as fans and pundits can yell and scream about it, it won't happen. I think a four-team playoff is a fair compromise. Nothing bigger, though. The NCAA loves it. The more we talk about it, the higher the ratings. We can complain, but it's not changing anything. What do you expect the Blue Jackets to accomplish this year? I expect them to make the playoffs, but in the tough Western Conference I think they will come up a few points short. Be a more physical team. Sorry folks, no playoffs this year, but they'll be better. Being a more competitive team. Even if they don't make the playoffs, playing meaningful games in March and April will get fans excited. I expect them not to make the playoffs. I hope to be pleasantly surprised! Playoffs or bust!
