I will also interested to see how the transition goes, in past years the first of season outdoor matches did not end well for OSU.As always for Ohio State it'll come down to how well they adjust to outdoors late in the year. Can they beat an outdoor team like Texas, Cal, USC, UCLA, Florida, Georgia etc when it comes down to crunch time in the NCAAs this year?
First major outdoor event in 2017 was at Florida in Feb. and the Buckeyes looked to be surprisingly sharp, however,
Next week Bucks travel to Texas for UT on March 15 and Texas A & M on the 19th.
By the time NCAA's come around OSU should have 2 months of outdoor play in the North to acclimate to the wind, sun, weather factors, though possibly not the heat.
