COLUMBUS, Ohio -- As usual, Senior Day at Ohio Stadium Saturday marks the end of an era.
Wide receiver DeVier Posey's return to action Saturday for Ohio State marks the end of a different kind of era. At least as far as we know, the Free TattooBobby DiGeronimo Suspension Era is officially over as soon as Posey takes a snap.
What a strange, complicated trip it's been.
Posey was one of the five players implicated last December in the tattoo and memorabilia scandal that ultimately cost Jim Tressel his job and forced Terrelle Pryor off the team and to the NFL. Two of the remaining four players returned after serving their five-game suspensions, and running back Daniel "Boom" Herron then had one game added to his when it was discovered that he had received payment from DiGeronimo, now an ex and disgraced booster, for work he didn't do.
The NCAA found that Posey was the worst of the offenders in the extra work scandal, and as a repeat offender he got the great...

Hey NLD. My apologies for last week’s lack of a Behind Enemy Lines segment – we were a little preoccupied for obvious reasons. But we’re back this week, as Phil Shie joins us from EyeAndEerBlog.com to talk about this year’s Buckeyes and what to expect this Saturday.
1) This is the first year of the Luke Fickell era. What has he done differently with this year'...
It’s that time of the week as we check in on Ohio State head football coach Luke Fickell at his weekly press conference at the Fawcett Center on Olentangy River Rd. The first question Coach Fickell fielded from the media was if DeVier Posey, who has served his mandated...
This week we are looking at Ohio State's third down defense, DeVier Posey's season debut, players picking up for injured players and potential quarterback mistakes. We also wonder if the Ohio State defense can continue to score touchdowns at the same rate as the Penn State defense.
You can’t see me right now because you’re just reading words on a screen that I typed several minutes, hours, or days ago, depending on when you see this. But as you read this, just know that I am figuratively standing at my desk applauding as the rest of this post passes before your eyes.
What can I say? I’m a sucker for class and good sportsmanship, and this is a quintessential...

On Tuesday night, Ohio State shook off a slow start to beat the Florida Gators for the second year running. And though it wasn’t quite as impressive a win as last year’s 93-75 blowout in Gainesville, it was still reassuring to see a young Buckeye team handle itself well against a quality opponent.
Though the senior Buford led the way against Florida, Ohio State's fortunes...
Even with a young squad, Ohio State sophomore has high expectations for this team. Check out what the forward has to say about the Buckeyes knocking off the #7 team and more.
Florida Coach Billy Donovan said the key to them winning their game against Ohio State would be to slow down the Buckeyes' Aaron Craft. Check out how Craft said he was able to avoid that.
When Florida jumped out to an early lead on Tuesday night at Ohio State, ball movement and court awareness weren’t issues. The ball bounced around the court to the open man and found open shots. As Ohio State made a run and eventually won the game, the ball became stagnant in the hands of Florida guards. Billy Donovan is now working hard to change that.
