Photos: Check Out The Cool Sugar Bowl/College Football Playoff-Themed Fossil Watches Ohio State Received

Playing in the Sugar Bowl means a couple different things for Ohio State football players.  They get to compete against No. 1 Alabama in primetime with a spot in the College Football Playoff national title game on the line. They get to spend a couple days in New Orleans (and probably some time on Bourbon Street). And they get a really cool Sugar Bowl-themed Fossil watch. Check it...

The NCAA Coaching Carousel: While We’re Waiting…

Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman is taking the head coaching gig in Houston. I suppose it is a tad unrealistic to think that he wasn’t going anywhere after this season, so I suppose I’m just glad that he isn’t taking one of the Big Ten openings. Urban will have to replace him though, and Eleven Warriors dug into the possible replacement list. I’m not as sold on...

Ohio State claims sack championship since Week 10, except…

On Wednesday morning Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer had this pop up on his Twitter feed… pic.twitter.com/K1hiWjJ5Cd — Urban Meyer (@OSUCoachMeyer) December 17, 2014 After doing some quick research, I found this to be a very misleading stat.

Herman’s departure makes Braxton Miller OSU’s most important player in 2015

Sometimes talent trumps coaching, and then there was what Ohio State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman did in 2014.

While most Ohio State women’s basketball fans wouldn’t get too excited about a game against Western Michigan but it was exciting for Coach Kevin McGuff as it marked his 400th game as a head coach.
