Photo: Ohio State Fan Has A Custom Toilet That Shockingly Doesn’t Respect Michigan

There are a lot of great rivalries in college football, but one stands out above the rest: Ohio State-Michigan. The Buckeyes and the Wolverines absolutely hate each other, and every season they square off to close the Big Ten regular season. There are no lengths that fans won’t go to show disrespect to the other school — we have found another great example of this today. No explanation...

Video: Ohio State’s Aaron Craft Solves Rubik’s Cube For Fan, Then Autographs It

Aaron Craft is Ohio State basketball’s clear fan favorite, and the heartthrob of many ladies in Columbus (but he’s taken, sorry). Perhaps what people love most about Craft, besides those rosy cheeks, are his smarts — he has a thing for rubik’s cubes. Today, he decided to show off his skills before his team’s season opener against Morgan State. He very quickly solved a...

Florida and Ohio State Battle?

At 6-foot-3 and more than 200-pounds, wide receiver Nate Craig is one of the most sought after offensive players in the country. Craig could find himself playing on either side of the ball at the collegiate level. The sky is the limit for this 2016 standout playmaker.

Chalk Talk: Geaux Trees! Sooner the Better

  Ah another week off; a time to relax, kick back and watch some football that has no real meaning for Buckeyes. NOT THIS WEEK KIDS. Bye week be damned, Buckeye fans have plenty to stress about this week, and all of it involves numbers like .9797, .9435, .8720 & .7745.  Those are Albama, Oregon, Ohio State, and Baylor’s BCS rankings respectively, and Baylor could be on the...

Video: Aaron Craft solves rubik’s cube then signs it for fan

The Ohio State men’s basketball team began their season on Saturday with an 89-50 victory over Morgan State. While there were many highlights in a 39 point victory, the moment generating the most buzz happened before the ball even tipped off. While in the tunnel signing autographs, Buckeyes’ senior guard Aaron Craft was handed a rubik’s cube by a fan. A little over a minute...

Safety Has Taken Road Less Traveled To OSU

Most players on the Ohio State football team excelled at the sport throughout high school, but one walk-on took a more circuitous route. Russell Doup barely played a down of high school football but has now been part of the Ohio State program for the past four seasons, even moving positions as part of a journey he never could have expected.
