Via @GerdOzoneI’ve never seen this done before. Over 3000 people attended Ohio State’s practice this weekend and Urban Meyer let them stand around his kicking unit to troll them. Smart move Urban. Urban did similar tactics at Florida when he was the head coach at Florida.
BEST OF MAXIM
Sophomores J.D. Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert have notified Ohio State that they will seek transfers and leave the Buckeyes.
Weatherspoon, a high school teammate of NBA-bound former Buckeye Jared Sullinger and Michigan point guard Trey Burke, played in 25 games last season as Ohio State went 31-8, shared the Big Ten regular-season title and made it the Final Four before losing...
It’s no big secret that Thad Matta doesn’t like to use his bench. While this may be a decent strategy in the NCAA tournament because you want your best players on the floor when it counts, Thad pretty much never even uses his bench during the regular season. This strategy seems to be coming back [...]
Time to cue up the Allen Iverson “PRACTICE?? We’re talking about practice man.” rant. 3,100 people showed up to watch the Ohio State football team practice indoors today.
Think about it: Ohio State had 3,100 fans show up for a practice that had a change-of-venue within an hour of its start.
Seriously, Central Ohio must be sorely lacking in entertainment/recreational activities...

Marc Givler received via text from Sprinkle his Buckeye commitment: “Elyria DE/DT #TracySprinkle has confirmed with me via text that he has committed to #OhioState”

While everyone seems to be talking about Urban Meyer's new hurry-up offense at Ohio State, the defense has been quietly going about its business.
The Buckeyes return nine starters on defense from a team that floundered at times during a 6-7 season. It was 27th in the nation in scoring defense and 19th in yards allowed.
But with linemen John Simon and Johnathan Hankins playing...
Urban Meyer really is playing up the whole “Circle of Trust” thing. On Saturday, the Ohio State football team scrimmaged in front of more than 3,000 fans (their spring game will be played this upcoming weekend), and tested out a new pressure scenario for kicker Drew Basil. The fans surrounded Basil on the field, who [...]

COLUMBUS - Drew Basil arrived in the training room at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center at 8:30 a.m., an hour and a half before the bus was supposed to leave for Ohio Stadium for todays student-filled open practice.
That he was there so early was a testament to how excited Basil was to perform in front of as many members of the student body who were...
