Auburn fans can measure their disappointment on Saturday by counting the amount of times Jarrett Stidham was sacked. (They need more than two hands. college football jersey  )#)

Notre Dame fans can count the failed third-down conversions or one-possession losses they've endured in the past two seasons.

Ohio State fans need only to point to an opposing quarterback planting a crimson-and-cream flag at midfield in the Horseshoe.

After two weeks of the 2017 season, Auburn, Notre Dame and Ohio State are among the biggest disappointments in college football.

It's not because Auburn lost to defending national champion Clemson on the road or because Notre Dame fell to Georgia by a point or because Ohio State was steamrolled by Oklahoma in the second half at home.

No, these traditional bluebloods have been disappointments in the first two weeks because after an offseason filled with significant changes and declarations about how deficiencies have been corrected, the Tigers, Fighting Irish and Buckeyes look a lot like they did last season.

And that's not a good thing.

Ohio State wasn't a bad team in 2016, at least not until it played Clemson in a College Football Playoff semifinal. The Tigers clobbered the Buckeyes 31-0, which was the first time an Urban Meyer-coached team was ever shut out.

Following that embarrassment, Meyer replaced his co-offensive coordinators with Kevin Wilson, who was forced to resign as coach at Indiana in December following allegations of mistreatment of Hoosiers players.

Wilson, who was regarded as one of the sport's best offensive minds when he was Oklahoma's offensive coordinator, was hired to inject new life into OSU's offense, and quarterback J. T. Barrett was supposed to flourish in his fourth season as a starter.

The early results have been alarming: Ohio State scored 13 points in the first half of a 49-21 win at Indiana on opening night, and then scored only a field goal cheap basketball jerseys  in the first half of a 31-16 loss at home to Oklahoma.

The team that was supposed to contend for a Big Ten title ncaa basketball jersey  and yet another CFP appearance suddenly looks like the third-best team in its division -- behind defending Big Ten champion Penn State and rival Michigan.

"[Our] offense was bad, " Meyer told reporters Saturday night. "So we're going to do what we do, and that's go back to work as hard as we possibly can, starting somewhat tonight and tomorrow, and figure this thing out. "

Where do the Buckeyes begin? Not with a quarterback change. Meyer remains committed to Barrett, a fifth-year senior, who is 27-5 as a starter and was voted OSU's first three-time captain. Barrett's struggles in the passing game go back to last season, when he failed to throw for 150 yards in a 30-27 win over Michigan in two overtimes and again in the loss to Clemson in the CFP. In fact, he has thrown for fewer than 200 yards in four of the past five games.

Barrett has been criticized for flourishing in games against overmatched Big Ten foes such as Rutgers and Maryland but struggling in games against more formidable opponents.

Meyer admitted that Barrett is going to receive a lot of the criticism for the offense's early struggles but was adamant he isn't considering a change.

"A lot of it is going to be on him, " Meyer said. "But a lot of it, until I watch the tape, that's just the nature of the beast. Last week, we threw the ball decently and had 300 yards passing, and this week we did not. I'm never going to point a college basketball jerseys  finger at a quarterback.
