If asked what bowl Ohio State would be playing in this year had they instituted a self imposed bowl ban following the 2011 season, most would say they'd be heading to the Rose Bowl. While that likely would be the case, one man that would disagree is Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee. During a celebration at the Ohio Statehouse last week honoring the team for their undefeated 2012 campaign, Gee made the following statement to The Columbus Dispatch:
"We were caught in the tsunami of all the things that were going on and we were the big fish on the line, and the NCAA was under great pressure to impose sanctions and my strong belief is ... if we would have self imposed we still would've had a bowl ban."
I hate to break it to you, E. Gordon, but that tsunami wasn't "all the things that were going on" but rather your own arrogance. If the NCAA was going to one up you no matter what, then why was the administration so shocked when the penalties were a...

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Last season, there were times that wide-eyed and skinny-legged freshman Sam Thompson felt alone at Ohio State.
Not because he was homesick. Mostly because no one was guarding him.
Thompson brought with him from Chicago an array of highlight-reel dunks and memorable blocked shots. He didn't bring much of a jump shot, and by the time the Buckeyes were playing...

The Ohio State football team scored a lot of points in 2012 -- enough to place fifth in school history. The scary part for Big Ten teams is the Buckeyes could be just getting started. Ohio State returns a wealth of players on offense, welcomes in a recruiting class of playmakers, and is part of an offensive scheme that should only get better.
There is no doubting the importance Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer places in having a dominant defensive line, and the Buckeyes continue to stockpile big bodies for that side of the football. Shaker Heights tackle Donovan Munger is Ohio State's latest commit.
Deshaun Thomas scored 21 points of his 22 points in the first half to help the No. 7 Ohio State basketball team earn a big advantage over Savannah State early, then the Buckeyes cruised from there to easily defeated the Tigers 85-45 to earn their third consecutive victory.
Tis the season for draft eligible players to declare for the 2013 NFL Draft, especially for players that likely have realized they carry a likely 1st round grade. For an Ohio State program that has at times been forgotten about this year due to BCS ineligibility and unable to play in the post-season, NFL scouts certainly haven't strayed away from the program for their evaluations...
