Urban Meyer is in control in Columbus. Can he lead the Buckeyes to a BCS title in 2013? Photo: USA Today Sports
Ohio State went undefeated last season, with a 12-0 record, yet still finished third in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll for the season behind BCS champion Alabama and one-loss, non-conference champion Oregon. If the Buckeyes were eligible for postseason play last year, would they have been no better than third without a blemish on the schedule?
Urban Meyer was expected to turn things around in Columbus in short time, although they did need a massive turnaround to begin with. The one year blip on the radar in the immediate fallout of tattoo gate that saw Jim Tressel lose his job and Terrelle Pryor take his chances in the NFL supplemental draft and more, Luke Fickell was thrown in to a near impossible situation. The circus that was Ohio State football in 2011 was only a mild detour from the norm, and the hiring of Meyer quickly brought Ohio State back...

To say the least, it was an active weekend for Ohio State Football. First, the good news!
Head Coach Urban Meyer and the Ohio State coaching staff have been in search of an offensive lineman after the loss of OT Reid Fragel to the NFL. This past weekend, Columbus held host to junior college standout and New Jersey’s top prospect Chad Mavety. Mavety stands tall at 6-foot-6 and...
For Ohio State Buckeye fans, the name Jordan Hall should sound familiar. It should sound very familiar.
Well if it doesn’t resonate in your head by now, get used to it, because come Saturday August 31, Jordan Hall should be a name not soon forgotten to most college football fans.
While it’s safe to say that Ohio State has seen its fair...
So, ya... Braxton Miller is Danny Sheridan's 2nd favorite for the Heisman trophy in 2013, putting him at 7:1 odds to win the most prestigious annual award in college football. However, don't get it twisted.... He's not a fan of Miller, Urban Meyer, the Big Ten, or Heisman Trophy campaigns.
In fact he let it fly in an interview with AL.com, to the point of...

Just about every Saturday during the fall, it wasnt hard to find pictures circulating on the internet showing empty college football stadiums across the United States.
The attendance average for regular-season college football games dropped for the third straight year, with the average mark of 45,274 the lowest since 2003.
Though the numbers arent...

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Urban Meyer knows the talk about another undefeated season and the possibility of Ohio State returning to the national championship game as early as next January has not only started, but has reached his team's locker room.
Meyer is doing his best to let such discussion get no further than its starting point.
Speaking before serving as the keynote speaker at...
Ohio State hosted Brandon Dawkins Tuesday for camp, as the Buckeyes continue to search for a quarterback in their 2014 recruiting class. How did things go for Dawkins?
Ohio State fans do not like Desmond Howard. The former wide receiver won the Heisman in 1991 and struck ghis famous pose during THE GAME the same year after returning a punt for a touchdown.
So, those Buckeye fans hold a grudge, and while I like Howard, I can unfortunately relate to holding a grudge for an inappropriate period of time (coughcoughTerryPorterNOTPASSINTERFERENCEcoughcough...
Another one of Urban‘s dominant freshman class members, Tracy Sprinkle was Ohio High School’s Co-Defensive player of the year in Division 1 (largest in Ohio) his senior year at Elyria High School. During that senior year Sprinkle recorded 19 sacks, eight more than his junior year tally of 11. Rated only as a 3-star (Rivals and 24/7) strong side defensive end, Sprinkle...
Yah, we didn’t win this one, and it wasn’t close (one of those pre-WWII wins we hear so much about). But this picture is pretty awesome, and crazy to see just how popular college football was, even in the 1920s. Click the image and click again on attachment for the full scale. [via Reddit]
I grew up as a rabid college football fan in the northern part of these United States. A lot of the schools in the North, especially the Midwest, boast great, heated rivalries that date back to the 19th Century. The Midwest in particular is home to classic rivalries like Michigan & Ohio State,Minnesota & Wisconsin and Notre Dame & everyone else.
Mater Dei (CA) sophomore Kyle Penniston made his way to Columbus to attend Ohio State's camp. Check out how it went for the tight end as well as where else in the Midwest he'll be visiting.
Many Ohio State fans have a championship on the mind in 2013 after an undefeated season, but head coach Urban Meyer is a but more realistic. In this story from FoxSportsOhio.com, Meyer talks about the progress his program has made and how much more it has to go before where he wants it to be.
Cleveland Glenville's Marcelys Jones became Ohio State's first commit for the 2014 recruiting class when he pledged to head coach Urban Meyer on Christmas of 2012. Jones was in action recently at the Raw Talent Sports camp. Here are a few clips of Jones in action.
