Video: Ohio State Buckeyes share their “Crib”

While this should come as no surprise, members of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team don’t exactly live in the same dorms that you or I piled in to back in our day. Thanks to Jessica Kleinshchmidt over at FanDuel, we get a look inside the home of two Buckeyes — Craig Fada and Joe Burger — as they take us inside their three-bed, two-bath apartment in Columbus.

Ohio St. linebackers present brotastic version of 'Cribs'

If you were a fan of "MTV Cribs" in the early 2000s, you're used to seeing actors, musicians and athletes showing off luxurious mansions. The version we have for you today is nothing like that. Well, it does feature athletes, but they're not making millions. They're in college. Ohio State linebackers Joe Burger and Craig Fada teamed up to show off their crib and give us a taste of...

Video: Ohio State LBs show off apartment in ‘OSU Cribs’

You guys remember MTV Cribs right? That show where really vain celebrities “invite” people into their house and show off their ten bedrooms, their personal basketball courts, their cars, and the bottle of “Crystal” in their refrigerators?

Video: Ohio State Linebackers Joe Burger And Craig Fada Show Off Their Apartment On “OSU Cribs”

When it comes to college housing, Ohio State football players have it pretty good. Buckeye linebackers Joe Burger and Craig Fada showed off their apartment on the first episode of “OSU Cribs,” and we must say, they have a pretty nice pad. There is plenty of Ohio State-themed memorabilia around, as you’d expect, but they also show off the strobe light and fog machine set up...

Can How Ohio State Dismantled Wisconsin Apply in Sugar Bowl?

Unlike when Ohio State left Lucas Oil Stadium with BCS Championship hopes rejected in a disappointing 34-24 loss at the end of last season, the only cold pizza to be consumed this time around would be left for the Badgers following a 59-0 drubbing. Well, the Badgers and a terribly ironic OSU linebacker Joe Burger (on Twitter @JBurgs37 ): Well played Mr. Burger, well played. With...
