So while the Impact Countdown that wrapped up before Ohio State pasted Miami (Ohio) 56-10 on Saturday will still factor somewhat in the considerations moving forward, the new weekly power ranking for individuals will make its debut relying more on what's happened on the field.

That's going to be the case after every game from here on out, so there figures to be plenty of movement throughout the season among the biggest, most important contributors for the Buckeyes. But at least at the top, there's no change after the first game.
