How to Improve in 2014: Ohio State

How does a team who won their conference and had a great breakout year get better? Well, just by stealing two stand out transfers from opposing ECAC schools, most notably former Denver attackman Gordie Koerber who put on a good show in a recent fall ball scrimmage vs UNC.

Ohio State will not return standout senior leader Logan Schuss who was drafted number one overall in the NLL entry draft. The Buckeyes will rely on a more team oriented offense that can move the ball well. With Gordie still trying to find his role in this new offense and Ohio State trying to feel out who will be the next big gun it should be a good start of the season with almost every starter having a real nose for the net.

It is believed throughout the league that Ohio State should have another strong showing this year and are favored to win their division. In order for the Buckeyes to make that happen they are going to have to have more solid showings from senior goalie Greg Dutton. The Buckeye defense will also need to be sharp until the offense can really find a way to click together.

With Coach Myers just signing a new contract extension I believe he can pull this team together to give it a new look offense and a defense to stand behind them until they get it right. I will expect Ohio State to have another strong showing and possibly make a deeper run into the NCAA playoffs.
