Ohio State receiver Parris Campbell told reporters he believes the Buckeye offense be "the most dominant offense in college football."

Ohio State sophomore receiver Parris Campbell said he believes the OSU offense can improve even more after an impressive first four games.

     Through four games, the Ohio State offense is averaging 576.2 total yards per game - 244.2 passing and 332 rushing. The total yards is good for fourth-best in the country while the rushing yards is third-best in the nation. 

     The amazing aspect about these numbers is that it's not just one player responsible for most of the production. Running back Mike Weber is 5 rushing yards away from reaching 500 for the season and H-back Curtis Samuel has added 328 yards on the ground as well.

     In the passing game, seven receivers have at least five receptions on the year. Samuel is leading the team with 23 grabs for 345 yards. Another wide out, Parris Campbell has six catches himself for 57 yards.

     The Akron, Ohio native is highly confident in his offense's capabilities this year and thinks it can only improve. 

     "I think we can be the most dominant offense in college football," Campbell said after practice Wednesday. "We're getting in the groove of things. Guys are starting to get receptions, guys are starting to make plays. I think it can only go uphill from this." 

     Head coach Urban Meyer said a lot of the reason why the Ohio State offense has been so successful thus far has a lot to do with the defense. 

     "I think any time you have a very good defense and you're getting that ball back quite often, things are going to get usually rolling for you at some point (on offense)," Meyer said. "Even if you struggle a little bit." 

     He also added that having a guy like J.T. Barrett at quarterback makes an incredible difference as well. 

     "Then the fact that you have J.T. Barrett running the show, it's pretty smooth," Meyer said. "Even when he makes a mistake it's usually not an awful one and we can rally right back up. But it starts with defense."
