PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Ohio State has been phenomenal this year.  TCU is definitely a game opponent, but this feels like Ohio State will want to make a statement. TCU scares me with only 11 returning starters coming back.  TCU also appears to be upset about having to play this one on a neutral site.  They had expected a home-and-home, and that was changed on them.  For the third straight week, I won’t play Ohio State, and they will cover easy and I’ll kick myself…
