NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer will host a safety clinic next month for about 600 mothers of youth football players. The free event will be held Aug. 1 at the Buckeyes' Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Participants will receive classroom instruction from health experts and on-field training from Ohio State coaches and former players. The NFL has promoted several programs that work to improve safety in football at various levels. The league faces a federal lawsuit over concussion-related injuries by thousands of former players. In an invitation to the OSU-NFL Moms Football Safety Clinic sent to female NFL fans in Ohio, Goodell says: ''We want to give you a chance to see firsthand what we are doing to make youth football safer and better.''

A glimpse behind the curtain with Urban Meyer

Ohio State Player Profile – Pat Elflein

  The 2013 Ohio State Buckeye football team returns four out of five starters along the offensive line and a Heisman caliber player at quarterback.

One such young athlete is redshirt freshman offensive lineman Pat Elflein, who is still trying to find his way...

Ohio State Player Profile – Jack Mewhort

Lingerie Football League Ashley Salerno JACKS UP Some Poor Woman (Video)

I know it is the Legends Football League now, but I am simply not calling it that. Ashley Salerno isn’t a small woman and she just totally destroys this young lady.
