Ohio State's offense a strength this time around

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The people entrusted with coaching Ohio State's offense are sleeping better this year.

A year ago, they were tormented every night by what a debacle they might have on their hands.

Instead, the Buckeyes got better, got a few breaks and got a lot of help from an inspired defense to put up a surprising 12-0 season.

Now, with just two starters missing from the offensive side, there are still some minor concerns but not "panic mode" as receivers coach Zach Smith referred to the mood on the staff when it seemed no one was adapting to a new attack a year ago.

With Braxton Miller back at quarterback, Carlos Hyde set at tailback, a solid line and improved receivers, the offense figures to be a strength in 2013.
