As the Ohio State Buckeyes’ fight song played for the last time in 2012, the undefeated Bucks celebrated at the horseshoe completing their sixth perfect season in school history with a win over Michigan. A bitter-sweet ending to a season that will not end at the BCS national title game. An injustice? in a way, yes. Urban Meyer‘s squad has been denied an opportunity to play for the team’s first national championship since 2002, as a result of the negligence and lack of control by former head coach Jim Tressel. Though Meyer, along with Buckeye nation, knew that there would be no postseason play this season — finishing perfect makes that pill a little bit harder to swallow. There is no question that Ohio State would have been invited to play in the National Championship game over unbeaten Notre Dame — if they were able to win the Big-10 title game — but the “what if?” scenarios are seemingly all Ohio State fans can hold on to. Or are they? Despite a postseason ban, the Buckeyes can sti...

Ohio State Football 2012 By The Numbers

With the season complete, we highlight some of the numbers the Buckeyes compiled during their 12-0 campaign. Urban Meyer's first team came close to setting a few different school records while improving significantly on offense from last season.

Box Score: (4) Ohio State 70, Northern Kentucky 43

LaQuinton Ross *might* need some more playing time.

If Marrone Ever Left, Could Jim Tressel Be a Syracuse Darkhorse Candidate?

Fox Sports It’s January, 2014. The New York Jets have suffered through yet another mediocre year under the supervision of Rex Ryan, and owner Woody Johnson has had enough.
