The (Ohio State) Freak Show

  If there is something Ohio State Buckeye fans are used to, it’s the head coach of their football team having a special interest in special teams.  Urban Meyer is no different than Jim Tressel in the way that he sees just how important the punting unit is to a football team.  Even under Meyer the offense cannot always achieve that ten yards needed, and this isn’t NCAA on...
