COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The people entrusted with coaching Ohio State's offense are sleeping better this year.
A year ago, they were tormented every night by what a debacle they might have on their hands.
Instead, the Buckeyes got better, got a few breaks and got a lot of help from an inspired defense to put up a surprising 12-0 season.
Now, with just two starters missing from the offensive side, there are still some minor concerns but not ``panic mode'' as receivers coach Zach Smith referred to the mood on the staff when it seemed no one was adapting to a new attack a year ago.
With Braxton Miller back at quarterback, Carlos Hyde set at tailback, a solid line and improved receivers, the offense figures to be a strength in 2013.
