Urban Meyer On Ohio State’s No. 6 Preseason Ranking: ‘I Think That’s A Fair Assessment’

The 2014 Amway Preseason Coaches Poll was released this afternoon. While the poll means nothing–the College Football Playoff Committee will not take rankings into account–it’s still interesting to see how teams are viewed heading into the season.  Ohio State is ranked No. 6 in the poll. What does Urban Meyer think of the Buckeyes spot in the ranking? Meyer on Ohio State...

Chest Bump Between Ohio State 170-lb RB And 342-lb DL Ends In Predictable Fashion

A chest bump between a 5’7″, 170-pound running back and a 6’4″, 342-pound defensive tackle. I think you can guess where this is going. I don’t think Devonte Butler is going to want to chest bump Chris Carter any time soon again. [YouTube] The post Chest Bump Between Ohio State 170-lb RB And 342-lb DL Ends In Predictable Fashion appeared first on Diehardsport.

Photo: Braxton Miller Posts A Photoshopped Picture Of Him Running With The CFB Playoff Trophy

Saying expectations are high for the Ohio State Buckeyes and their star senior quarterback Braxton Miller is an understatement. The Buckeyes have “national title or bust” expectations, while Miller — who is reportedly in the best shape of his life — is expected to lead the team there.

Braxton Miller On Ohio State-Michigan At Night: ‘I Feel Like It Should Be’

For as long as Ohio State and Michigan have met on the football field, they’ve done it during the day. Sure, occasionally the game will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. E.T. and by the third quarter, it’s dark out, but never have the Buckeyes and Wolverines played a true night contest.  That’s likely not going to change anytime soon.  “Dave Brandon, the athletic director at Michigan...

Urban Meyer on Ohio State-Michigan State (and Michigan)

Monday in Chicago at the first of the Big Ten football media days, the head coach of Buckeyes was asked his thoughts on the Nov. 8 clash with Michigan State in East Lansing, a game getting more preseason hype at this point than the traditional regular-season ending clash with Michigan at Ohio Stadium. “If we take care of business, it will be real big. But we’ve got some things...

Ohio State once again Big Ten favorite, MSU not far behind

Big Ten Media Days start tomorrow, as the season is now a month and change away.  The league actually does it much later than the other power conferences, so if you think this is too early, than you must really think the other leagues are insanely early. Over the weekend, the Big Ten released its preseason poll, and the usual favorite in Columbus, is once again expected to win it...

Ohio State’s New Locker Room Features Waterfall, Wall Of HDTVs (Photos)

After ending their 2013 campaign with a 40-35 loss to Clemson in the Orange Bowl, Ohio State likely can’t wait to start the 2014 season. A completely renovated football facility should make the Buckeyes even more giddy. Ohio State’s football stadium and adjacent facilities are both undergoing multimillion dollar renovations, and apparently they’re going quite well. Buckeyes...
