COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - On message boards and call-in shows, you can hear the dread, the disappointment and the discouragement from Ohio State fans.
A painful 24-6 loss at Miami last Saturday night has the Buckeyes faithful expecting the worst. Even though eight games remain on the schedule, and key suspended players will be returning
soon, some fans are girding for a debacle. They predict the program's first losing season since 1988.
But not everyone sees impending gloom and doom for the Buckeyes.
Colorado coach Jon Embree, who brings his Buffaloes to Ohio Stadium on Saturday, benefits from being removed from the situation. He thinks the fans are overreacting. He still respects the Buckeyes and expects them to play well.
