COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State's board of trustees has altered the contract of athletic director Gene Smith to pay him the same amount without incentives of about $18,000 for each Big Ten championship won by Buckeyes teams and individuals.

Photo: Thad Matta Promised His Ohio State Team An NBA Jam Arcade Game For A Winning Streak, He Delivered Today

The Ohio State coach promised his team an NBA Jam arcade game for...

Bovada releases early 2015 Heisman odds

Looks like Bovada is giving Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliot the best chance with Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott and LSU’s Leonard Fournette right behind him. Elliot came on strong at the end of the year but with the players that have at QB I think it might be hard for him to grab the complete spotlight from them. Here are the rest of the odds….

Photos: A Lot Of Ohio State Fans Are Naming Their Cute Puppies After Buckeye RB Ezekiel Elliott

The most famous Ezekiel currently living in Ohio is the Buckeyes’ star running back, Ezekiel Elliott. There are plenty of other Ezekiels currently running around the Midwest, though, and not all of them are humans.  Ezekiel, “Zeke” for short, has become a very popular dog name for Ohio State fans following the impressive performance of the Buckeye tailback during his program’s...

Watch: Ohio State’s Sam Thompson throws down monster alley-oop on out of bounds play

This play pretty much summed up what Ohio State did to Maryland last night and who made the pass to Sam Thompson on this awesome in-bounds alley-oop? Of course it was D’Angelo Russell…. http://t.co/p3j9gsJxUi — Kevin Causey (@CFBZ) January 30, 2015

Ohio State Basketball Star D’Angelo Russell Announces Commitment Of 4-Star JaQuan Lyle Via Instagram

What can’t D’Angelo Russell do? The Ohio State guard has emerged as one of the best players in the country, and is averaging 19.4 points per game for the Buckeyes. Tonight, he led OSU to a big upset win over No. 16 Maryland, and a few hours later, he broke the news of a big commitment to Thad Matta’s program.

D'Angelo Russell Proves Againt Maryland He May Very Well Be the Best Passer at Ohio State

Maryland was supposed to be the better team Thursday night when it faced off against Ohio State. That is, if you buy in to the notion that the ranked team is better than the unranked team on any given night. When the game was done that was far from the case though. Lead by D'Angelo Russell's 18 points. 14 rebounds, and six assists, the Buckeyes crushed the Terrapins 80-56.The freshman...

Report: Four-Star DB De-Commits From Ohio State, Will Not Sign With Buckeyes

Miami (Fla.) Norland cornerback Carlton Davis committed to Ohio State in August, but had been entertaining Auburn heavily of late, officially visiting the Tigers last weekend and hosting several AU staffers at his home Tuesday. This morning, a report emerged from 247Sports’ Alex Gleitman that Davis reneged on his pledge to the national champions, and will not sign with OSU. Not...

Ohio State Goes as D’Angelo Russell Does

D’Angelo Russell’s shoulders are not that broad, but as the ultimate barometer for Ohio State, Russell is certainly carrying his team. The Buckeyes go as Russell does, and their success will be determined by how far one of the top freshmen in the country can propel Thad Matta’s troops. The stats are clear. Russell’s 19.4 points per game is just under a fourth of the team’s...

Big Ten Review: Books to Celebrate the Buckeye Championship Team

Whenever a magical run to a championship happens, there is no shortage of memorabilia, team gear, and books/magazines to collect. The only limit typically is the budgetary concerns of your wallet. Ohio State’s 2014 College Football Playoff championship is no different. Today we take a look at recently-released (and one not so recently-released) books commemorating the most recent...

TBDBITL Report: National Championship, Celebration, and a Waters Update

This was a magical season for the Ohio State football team as they overcame adversity to win a National Championship that Buckeye fans will never forget. The Ohio State University Marching Band also had a special year where they faced a great deal of adversity, including the firing of Director Jon Waters and having the band’s name dragged through the mud, and just like the football...

Bad British Commentary For National Championship Game Takes Shots At Ohio State?

It says “2015 Super Bowl” but I think that’s supposed to be part of the joke. If not, this video is even worse than I thought. It’s only redeeming quality is it takes a few digs at the Buckeyes.

MVB: #13 Ohio State Continues To Roll

When we last checked in with the Ohio State Men’s Volleyball Team, they were coming off a Left Coast/Hawaii swing (as I look upon my snow covered yard in WNY) with a decent 3W-2L performance.  Since then, the team has continued to look pretty damn good. They have won 3 consecutive matches (Limestone, George Mason, Pfeiffer) by 3-1 scores, to move their record to 6-2 for the season...

Thad Matta Offers Scholarship to Four-Star PF Nick Ward

The class of 2015 and 16 might be the best recruiting classes in Thad Matta’s history at Ohio State. That’s saying a lot for the guy that has brought in a class that included Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Daequan Cook and David Lighty as well as another class that included Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft, and Deshaun Thomas. This year’s class of D’Angelo Russell, Jae’Sean Tate...

Ohio State QB Stephen Collier Is Not Happy With The Student Parking Situation In Columbus

Ohio State’s Columbus campus is big – the biggest in the country, according to Ranker.com. So sometimes, especially in the winter, students will choose to drive to class instead of walking.  The parking situation isn’t ideal, though, as there are only a finite amount of spaces for the tens of thousands of students who attend the university.  Buckeye freshman quarterback Stephen...

Urban Meyer calls out Mark May: “We are worthy”

Before the National Championship Game ESPN analyst Mark May, the gum stuck on the bottom of the shoe of college football, took his vendetta against Ohio State to ridiculous heights by refusing to admit that the Buckeyes belonged in the title game.  This was after a 59-0 win in the Big Ten Championship Game and a Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama. May’s silence and hate of the Buckeyes...

Football ‘Cruitin': Ohio TE Commits to Buckeyes!

The Ohio State football recruiting Class of 2016 just got a bit bigger and a bit getter with today’s commitment of Cincinnati Moeller tight end Jake Hausmann. The 4* rated player is the top ranked at his position (by Rivals) #2 player in Ohio and #39 nationally. Quite a ‘get’ for Ohio State. His contact at Ohio State was Kerry Coombs, so you can imagine why Jake’s excitement...

Oh the destruction that Urban Meyer has caused by taking the Ohio State Buckeyes and their third string quarterback to the top of the mountain. One fan had a bet and brought it to the attention of the fine folks at Black Sports Online. I’ve never engaged in a bet like this pretty much exactly for this reason. I’m never going to pay one of these bad boys off. Better yet, I’ll...

First World Football Problems: Ohio State may have the three best QBs in the nation on one roster

Follow TSS on Twitter @TheStudentSect Author @TheCoachBart There’s an old country song by Alan Jackson that goes, “too much of a good thing … is a good thing.” It defies the logic that “there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.” Alan Jackson obviously was ahead of his time and talking about Ohio State football. How does the old saying go? If you have two quarterbacks...
