It’s no secret that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has stepped up his level of play over the past few weeks. Against Penn State on Saturday, Miller finished with 320 yards of total offense along with five touchdowns (three passing, two running) as the Buckeyes absolutely blew out the Nittany Lions, 63-14.
What has been the difference for Miller these past few games? According to his own head coach, Urban Meyer, it was backup quarterback Kenny Guiton warming up on the sideline during the Northwestern game.
Meyer on Braxton Miller’s play since Kenny Guiton warmed up at NW: “I don’t think it’s a coincidence. He’s not used to being second fiddle.”

Guiton came on in relief of Braxton Miller (due to injury) earlier this year and played very well – so well that many fans thought he should be named the starter. He also got the opportunity to play in Saturday’s lopsided win against Penn State and scored two rushing touchdown...

The Ohio State University marching band is on a whole ‘nother level these days. Just a week after its epic tribute to Michael Jackson — complete with a Moonwalking sequence — the band returned to the field on Saturday with an ode to Hollywood film scores. At one point, the band played John Williams’ classic Jurassic Park theme, during which the band formed the shape of a...
Like a lot of coaches, Ohio State's Urban Meyer tries to get his team to ignore the polls.
But then he took an extraordinary step.
When the team met a week ago, he addressed the initial BCS rankings, what the Buckeyes' No. 4 ranking meant and what it could mean in the future. He told his team everything would turn out right if it just kept winning.
Then the Buckeyes (8...
I would like to take this time to apologize to any of the band members in high school or college that may have ever thought I did not appreciate the work they do. I never got to see the finished product since I was always in the locker room at halftime, but I always heard good things.
Now I never quite believed that anyone came to see you guys and not the football team, but maybe...
The Ohio State Buckeyes marching band is good. Really good.
The latest evidence of this fact came during halftime on Saturday as "The Best Damn Band in the Land" produced some mind-blowing movie-themed formations.
These weren't just any movie-themed formations. These were cleverly designed to take specific shots at Ohio State's arch rival in Ann Arbor...
Ohio State hosted several top prospects over the weekend Here's the latest on how it all shook out in Columbus. Tons of information and good news came out of it.
In case you are wondering if it’s legal to name your child after your favorite sports team. It is. An Ohio Buckeyes couple decided on naming their daughter “Scarlet Gray” which happen to be the colors for the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. Urban Meyer would be proud as would the Buckeye state. HT […]
Purdue is set to host undefeated Ohio State on Saturday, and the Boilermakers athletics department announced a blackout (#BoilerBlackOut) for the occasion.
After handing Penn State a blowout of historic proportions, it would have seemed difficult to select just two players to receive Buckeye Empire Helmet Stickers. In reality, that was almost opposite the case, as both of this week’s winners were nearly unanimous.
Offensive Helmet Sticker: Braxton Miller, quarterback
Despite putting up some of the best passing numbers of his career...
Avery Gennesy's fourth official visit was to Ohio State this weekend. The Buckeyes made a strong impression on the junior college offensive tackle.
Over the weekend, Shy Tuttle made his first trip to Ohio State. The four-star Lexington (N.C.) North Davidson defensive tackle enjoyed his time in Columbus.
Ohio State hosted several highly-rated recruits for last weekend's blowout win over Penn State. Hubbard's L.J. Scott is the number-one junior in the state of Ohio, and he certainly enjoyed his trip to see the Buckeyes.
The Ohio State Buckeyes have easily been the most questioned undefeated team all season in the NCAA. With not very dominant wins over their first three Big Ten opponents of the season, it seemed many were waiting for the Buckeyes to stumble and lose a game they were supposed to win easily.
Instead, Buckeye nation got what they have been waiting for all season long—a truly dominant...
Complete domination. And a complete 60-minute game. That’s something I haven’t been able to say after the first seven games, but I can say it now without any hesitation following Ohio State’s 63-14 blow out […]
