Johnny Manziel (QB-Texas A&M) – Following up the first ever freshman season to result in a Heisman Trophy will be no easy task for Manziel. When factoring in the tumultuous offseason he has just gone through, repeating the achievement could be next to impossible. However, the

It may have seemed so far away back in January when Alabama head coach Nick Saban raised that crystal football once again following the Crimson Tide’s victory over Notre Dame, but the 2013-2014 college football season has finally arrived.
With the countdown now down to just a few more hours before the likes of South Carolina and North Carolina hit the field, let’s take a look...
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has joined the Twitter ranks ... and he says it was at the urging of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops.
There’s no arguing that defense wasn’t exactly the strong suit for the undefeated 2012 Ohio State Football team. The Buckeyes were ranked 34th overall in total defense, while allowing opponents to score an average of 22.6 points a game. It’s a good thing the offense was able to score 37.2 points a game. For comparison purposes, Alabama (the nation’s top ranked 2012 defense...

Ohio State is the definitive favorite to win the Big Ten Championship, but an unblemished season will be a hard achievement. The Buckeyes have one of the more manageable schedules in the conference, but they still have some difficult games. OSU should beat Cal though it may be a more challenging game than expected with the long trip. There's a good chance that Ohio State will...
Some people believe that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. I don’t think those people know what they are talking about. Today Christmas arrives early for sports fans with the return of football. For the next five months, we can all bask in the glory that the little brown spheroid brings us.
I am anxiously looking forward to gambling, Chris Berman delivering his...
There was a time not so long ago when Ohio State's defense was one of the most feared, effective and efficient units in the country.
For this season's second-ranked Buckeyes to contend for a Big Ten, let alone a national title, coach Urban Meyer knows his defenders have to harken back to the not-so-distant past.
''One thing about Ohio State defense, for a decade...
It’s no secret why THE 2012 Ohio State Football team went an undefeated, unblemished 12-0 last season. It’s tough to beat a team that averaged roughly 37.2 points a game, while being held to 30 points or fewer only five times. With nine returning starters on the offensive side of the ball, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes look to duplicate their scoring success in their pursuit of...
Enough with the appetizers and the preludes for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Spring workouts, fall camp - they're all finished. Now it's on to the real thing.
Next in the sights of the nation's second-ranked team is its opener on Saturday against Buffalo.
Coach Urban Meyer says he doesn't want a rerun of what happened a year ago, his first prowling the sidelines at...

As the Ohio State Buckeyes get set to embark on year two under head coach Urban Meyer, the biggest question on everyone’s minds is whether or not the Buckeyes can do it again. That “it”, as anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock knows, is go undefeated for the second straight season.
After bursting onto the scene with a perfect 12-0 record...
By Dr. Jeff A. Glenn / @jagadelic As a longtime Buckeye, I’ve seen the fans of our boys in Columbus get ridiculously amped up for football season. The ’75 team had Heisman Trophy winning Archie Griffin returning and the ’95 team with Eddie George, Terry Glenn and Orlando Pace stirred everyone’s hearts. The ’06 team […]The post The 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes: Probation Is...
Ohio State's Braxton Miller handled the question like he might a hard-charging lineman - sidestepping it.
Asked if he considered himself a running quarterback who could pass or vice versa, he laughed and said, ''Both.''
Heading into Saturday's 2013 season opener against Buffalo, Miller is confident and comfortable, surrounded by solid players and assured...

The Ohio State Buckeyes should have control of the game in every area against the Buffalo Bulls in week one of the 2013 college football season, but the Bulls’ defense, led by All-MAC linebacker Khalil Mack, won’t be a total pushover and could present Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes’ offense with some challenges.
Mack is one of the best linebackers...
Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is apparently a pretty popular guy. Meyer, who claims he was convinced by Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, joined Twitter tonight and amassed over 10,000 followers in less than an hour. His first tweet? A photo of the Buckeyes countdown to their game against Buffalo.
The first person he followed? Quarterback Braxton Miller.
Suck my baby dick, Red Grange!
Before we hand out our Heisman Awards, I want to briefly discuss last year's winner: Juan Futbol Americana. OK, so as of me typing this up, the Aggies have not announced whether they are going to play him on Saturday against Rice. I get that. They want the NCAA to make a decision which is not their strong suit. Let's assume that they...
