Ohio Bobcats College Football 2021 Preview: Offense

– It’s not that the Bobcats had much time to work. They only played three games, but it was a strong three offensive performances. Still, two of the games were against Akron and Bowling Green – you and a couple of good friends climbed to 300 meters against these two last year.

Nine starters are back for a team you know what to do. It’s ohio. It will be solid, the game in progress will work, and the temporary attack will be efficient.

– – There are two excellent quarterback options, both of which can move. Kurtis Rourke – the brother of former Ohio star Nathan – has done more with the passing game last season, but former UNLV super recruit Armani Rogers was better at the ground attack. They’ll both get a lot of work behind a solid line that gets four starters back but all-star center Brett Kitrell loses.

– The reception corps will be more than fine. Isiah Cox is a major game threat, averaging over 20 yards per catch on his seven moves – he also led the team in 2019 averaging 17 yards per catch – and the rest of the group are fine despite losing great playmaker Shane catches on Deion Sanders and Jackson State.

The close combination of brothers Adam and Ryan Luehrman can play both.

The return situation is even better with De’Montre Tuggle and O’Shaan Allison’s 1: 2 strike. They’re both roughly the same size and can either break out, but Tuggle is the star of the show. The quarterbacks are a big part of the fun too.

The story goes on

4. Ohio Bobcats College Football 2021 Preview: Defense

– As with the offensive team, there is also a big “Yes … but …” with the great defensive performance of 2020. There were only three games and when you play Akron and Bowling Green every D looks great.

However, there is real talent in this group that comes with a whole range of experience. After only four bags in the three games, however, there must be a rush of passers-by.

– The defensive front loses the best playmaker in backfield Austin Conrad from one end, but the rest of the front four return. There’s not a ton of beef – 300 pounds of Kyle McCracken is the captain in the nose – but there must be a rush of passers-by here too. At least there will be a good rotation.

– The back seven will have to replace Jared Dorsa in the middle, but Jamison Collier – the team’s leading tackler at 19 stops – is returning on a security job. Overall there isn’t a lot of size and the run defense needs to be stronger, but the secondary will hold up well. It will be much better when there is a rush of passers-by.

Ohio Bobcats College Football Preview 2021: Top Players

Best Ohio Bobcats Offensive Player

RB De’Montre Tuggle, Sr.
The previous JUCO transfer produced 644 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2019, and it turned out to be a nice receiver too. Last year he dominated his three working games averaging 7.6 yards per carry with 403 yards and six points – and he was also used in kickoffs. He kicked Central Michigan and averaged 45 yards for the year on his four returns.

2. WR Isiah Cox, Sr.
3. QB Kurtis Rourke, Soph.
4. QB Armani Rogers, Sr.
5. RB O’Shaan Allison, Jr.

Best Ohio Bobcats Defensive Player

S Jarren Hampton. Sr.
The 5-10, 197-pound veteran got a bit of work in his early years, and then turned it on as a junior with 71 stops and five broken passes. He didn’t get a chance to do too much in three eleven-stop games last year, but he’ll be the lead man in a secondary school full of great safety.

2. DE Will Evans, Sr.
3. LB Keye Thompson, Jr.
4. S Jamison Collier, Jr.
5. DT Kylen McCracken, Jr.

Top Incoming Ohio Bobcats Transfer

OT TJ Jackson, Sr.
Ohio hasn’t done much in the transfer world, and it didn’t take much help on the offensive front, but it is getting a 6-6 solid body blaster for the interior. He’s had a few starts for Virginia Tech and can play tackle or guard – but he’ll be stronger inside.

Ohio Bobcats College Football 2021 Preview: Keys To The Season

Ohio Bobcats Biggest Key: Insult

Call the passing game with the great floor game. In 2019, the offense mostly didn’t work if the game in progress didn’t go up 250 meters. There wasn’t a lot to do through the air in last season’s three games, but quarterbacks Kurtis Rourke and Armani Rogers need to do more than hit the big, deep ball. However …

The Bobcats were 1-6 in 2019 when they weren’t averaging eight meters per pass. They lost in a game against Central Michigan last year when the downfield passing attack kind of worked.

Ohio Bobcats Biggest Key: Defense

It would be nice if the run defense could be a rock. It’s not that Akron or Bowling Green made things that interesting last year – though the Zips made it a bit tight – but the two respective running games could rumble over five yards per carry. Central Michigan could hit four yards per pop.

Two years ago, the defense struggled to consistently hold the better ground games, and early this year, Louisiana is being brought in to join Syracuse and Northwestern.

Ohio Bobcats key players to a successful season

EN Will Evans, Sr.
The veteran defensive end is more of a big linebacker at 6-2 and 242 pounds, and now he has to use his experience and speed to be more of a pass rusher.

As one of the team’s top leaders, he’s the captain for the locker room, but he’s only got 4.5 sacks in his 36 games. He’ll get behind the line and develop a series of tackles for the loss, but the team needs a sack.

Ohio Bobcats key game for the 2021 season

on October 16 in Buffalo
The MAC schedule isn’t all that bad. There is no Ball State or Western Michigan from the west, the dates with Toledo, Miami, Kent State and Central Michigan are at home and the street games in Akron and Bowling Green are more than manageable.

Buffalo has been great the past few years, but Ohio won the last two meetings by 2017. Win this year and the East might be there for you if the Bobcats can serve at home.

Ohio Bobcats College Football 2021 Preview: What Will Happen Season Forecast

Ohio is Ohio.

Frank Solich and his staff will be putting together another wonderful season, the game in progress will be great and the team will manage to get through game after game if it looks like it’s the best team in the MAC.

But it’s Ohio, so the brain spasm will come at some point, it’s going to be another year without a conference title – the last was in 1968, by the way – and then it’s off to a bowl game to end the season with a win.

What if Ohio avoided that misfire along the way? What if it could win all of the close games?

Set the Ohio Bobcats regular season win to … 7.5

The team will be absolutely solid. The lines are great, the skill parts are pretty much all in the MAC, and with 17 starters back there is more than enough experience to be reasonably sharp even with just three work games last year.

The first month doesn’t matter – the non-conference games aren’t that big a deal here, and Ohio will likely go 1-3 anyway. However, the MAC slate isn’t bad thanks to the eastern part of the slate. Buffalo is being rebuilt, the Kent State and Miami Games are home, and the dates for Bowling Green and Akron are on the way.

Solich has the team, plan, and parts to get to the MAC title game for the first time since 2016. Since taking over Ohio in 2005, he’s been with four of them and hasn’t won any.

This year could finally be his breakthrough with the program.
