Buckeyes' Miller says he's fine

When Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller first was hurt in Saturday's game against Purdue, he didn't know what to think. He'd never before been thrown down on his head and neck. ''I didn't know what it was,'' he said of his injury. ''I was just a little bit dizzy from the hit, whiplash. So they sent me to the hospital to see what it was...

Ohio State-Penn State still matters amid sanctions

The race for the Big Ten Leaders Division title would be a terrific one - if more than one of the top teams were eligible for the conference title game. Ohio State and Penn State are both unbeaten in conference play, and they're playing each other this weekend. But thanks to sanctions, neither can compete for the league championship or go to a bowl. In fact, it's looking...

Penn State chosen top women's team in Big Ten

Penn State was selected as the top Big Ten women's basketball team with four returning starters, including a preseason co-player of the year. Senior guard Alex Bentley helped lead the Nittany Lions to a 26-7 overall record and their sixth Big Ten title.

How Penn State Can Take the Next Step

Penn State was right on the cusp of an NCAA tournament appearance last season. The Nittany Lions had some impressive wins on their resume including Notre Dame and Villanova. Now, they lose their leading scorer Matthew Mackrides and top a top midfielder in Ryan Link, but bring back goalie Austin Kaut and  D-middie Jack Donnelly. Here are three things PSU can do to make that next...

NCAA president defends Penn State sanctions

NCAA president Mark Emmert says the sanctions levied on Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal dealt with the behavior of university leaders and whether or not the school handled the allegations appropriately.

OSU's Guiton, Fields get time in spotlight

From the moment they first set foot on Ohio State's football team, quarterback Kenny Guiton and receiver Chris Fields have been in the background. Fans and reporters brushed by them to get to the starters. Their names seldom were mentioned unless it was someone casting doubt whether they could even fill in if they were suddenly thrust into a game when it mattered. For years...

A note to alumni visiting this Saturday

  Two plays after a terrible questionable pass interference call against the Nittany Lions when we played Northwestern earlier this season, a Penn State player in the secondary went down with an injury (it ended up only being a stinger), which allowed Bill O’Brien to bypass a rule that keeps coaches on the sideline during the game. O’Brien walked onto the field to tend to...

Despite exciting win, Buckeyes have lots to fix

In the jubilation that followed Ohio State's strain-the-imagination win over Purdue on Saturday, several important considerations were pushed into the background. Yes, the ninth-ranked Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0 Big Ten) stayed unbeaten with the heart-pounding 29-22 overtime win in which they trailed by eight points with 47 seconds left and had the ball at their own 39 and their best...

Report: Ohio State RB Jordan Hall reinjures knee; out for season

According to coach Urban Meyer’s call in show (hat tip to 97.1 The Fan’s Lori Schmidt) , RB Jordan Hall reinjured his knee in practice yesterday. The injury is serious enough that Hall likely won’t play again this season. Meyer said “If all goes well, he’ll redshirt and come back next year.” Hall played in parts of 5 games for the Buckeyes after missing the beginning...

Quick Hitter: Penn State Offers 4-star WR

Middletown (Del.) High four-star receiver Chris Godwin is one of the region's top players in the 2014 class, and Penn State thought enough of him to extend an offer.

Is Urban Meyer Good For The Big Ten?

From the time  it was announced that Jim Tressel would be leaving Ohio State, one man had been on the minds of not just the Buckeye faithful, but all of the Big Ten:  Urban Meyer. Even as Luke Fickell took over the reins for Ohio State last season, the writing was on the wall that Fickell was there to serve as the buffer between the Tressel and Meyer eras. The minute Meyer set...
