Ohio State Football: Final Winners and Losers from Spring Ball

Ohio State capped its spring practice with an offensively challenged spring game that featured just 447 total yards and 24 combined points—both of which fell short of Ohio State's offensive averages during the 2013 season.

According to Martin Rickman of Sports Illustrated, those uninspiring numbers don't concern Urban Meyer much.

“’I’m not trying to evaluate an offense because who cares?” Meyer said. 

That's because offense hasn't been an issue for the Buckeyes under Meyer. The issue has been their defense—particularly the pass defense—which ultimately cost Ohio State a shot at the national title in 2013.

Meyer is hoping to refocus his team for another title run this season.

Some players and units stepped up and had a great spring. Others didn't. Here are the winners and losers from Ohio State's spring ball.

Clemson Football: Projecting Post Spring 2-Deep Depth Chart

Spring practice is over and the season opener for Clemson is exactly four months away from Wednesday.

Now that the Tigers have their starting quarterback, it's time to start finding out who will be catching passes from Cole Stoudt. And does Clemson have a running back capable of carrying the ball 25 times per game on a weekly basis?

Offensive coordinator Chad Morris has his work cut out for him in 2014. Replacing Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, Martavis Bryant, Roderick McDowell and Brandon Thomas on offense is a lot to overcome. But the Tigers do have talent—it's just young.

Head coach Dabo Swinney hasn't released a post-spring depth chart yet, so we are going to project what the Tigers' first official depth chart will look like.
