This weekend's game against Michigan State will be the final home game for Ohio State's seniors. But with all the talent on this team ready for NFL futures, it could be the final home game for plenty of non-seniors, too.
Perhaps the most notable of those is defensive end Joey Bosa, who is projected by many NFL Draft analysts to be one of the first players off the board in next year's draft. Bosa is a junior and expected by almost all observers to forego his senior season and declare for the draft once this season is over.
Of course, he hasn't had to officially make that decision yet.

But talking to reporters Monday in Columbus, Bosa made it pretty clear that his final few games as a Buckeye are upon him.
"It's hard to even think that three years is almost over already," Bosa said, a video of his comments posted by The O Zone. "When people tell you when you're younger, they're like, 'Make sure you don't wish time by, it flies,' and you don't believe it until you're actually (living it). It seems like only yesterday I was coming here for the first time. (Saturday is) definitely going to be an emotional day for me.
"You really don't understand it until you go through it all with cherishing every moment you have here. It's really crazy that three years have flown by so quick and now my brother's going to be taking my spot here next year. It's really exciting, but it's still hard after all that to take every moment in one at a time. But I'm trying as best I can to not wish time by and take in every moment."

It's been an illustrious three seasons for Bosa at Ohio State, and he's en route to big money as a top draft pick. But is there something, anything that could keep him in Columbus one more season?
There might be, actually. Bosa's younger brother, Nick, is committed to play for the Buckeyes, his freshman season coming in 2016. Perhaps the Bosa brothers reuniting would be enough to keep the elder Bosa in scarlet and gray a year longer.
"I'd have to say the only possible thing that would keep me here is playing with Nicky," Bosa said. "Not even playing with him, just being able to be here and show him how it's going to be. I know he'll be fine, but it would be so nice to be here and help him through it. But we'll see when the time comes."
