Rewind: Duzey for 85 Yards v OSU

Jake Rudock completed an 85 yard touchdown pass to Jake Duzey this past week against Ohio State. It was about a 25 yard completion, right on the numbers and just over two Ohio State defenders. Duzey did the rest…and boy did he do the rest. Notice how Ohio State’s #4 CJ Barnett, a strong safety, never closed on the 6-4/240 pound Iowa tight end. The post Rewind: Duzey for...

Buckeyes counting on a lot from Bryant, Barnett

Safeties are the players farthest removed from the action. Yet they'll be in the middle of Ohio State's hopes this fall. Starters Christian Bryant and C.J. Barnett account for 50 percent of the seniors on the defensive side for the Buckeyes. They've been through a lot, with three coaches in their college careers, weathering a dreary 6-7 record two years ago and playing...

2013 – The Chase for Safety Solidarity

Coach Withers is having none of your shenanigans All this week, we at Buckeye Empire have profiled and broken down the men who will serve as the last line of defense for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Safety Dance

  The Buckeye Empire Summer Series continues with a look back at the 2012 season and the safety position, C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant in particular. The defensive secondary is the last thing standing between an opposing offense and the end zone and the safeties are a smaller subset of that last line. Luckily for Ohio State, the safety position is the one unit on the defensive...

5 Buckeyes make Athlon Sports top 25 Big Ten Heisman contenders

Athlon Sports released their top 25 Big Ten Heisman contenders earlier this week and 5 Buckeyes managed to make the list. Although I think it's a bit odd to pick Heisman contenders out of every single conference, it is interesting to look at where some players would stand if, in fact, the college football world was just the Big Ten. As for the Buckeye players, Braxton Miller...
