Gophers' Cobb: 'Great feeling to compete' against fellow Big Ten RBs

INDIANAPOLIS -- David Cobb doesn't even have to look outside of the Big Ten to find a group of running backs who are considered better draft prospects than him. That's perfectly fine with the 21-year-old University of Minnesota star. In fact, it fuels Cobb as he continues to prepare for the NFL. With the likes of Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon, Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah and Indiana's...

Kareem Walker is the No. 1 running back in the 2016 and he’s committed to play at Ohio State. You probably don’t remember him committing, Buckeye fans, because he made his pledge during your team’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game. It’s understandable.  The 6-foot-1, 210-pound back out of Wayne, New Jersey, is ranked the No. 9 player in the country by...

Buckeyes leave marks on record book

Ohio State's eighth national championship brought with it more than a couple of amazing numbers. We lead it off with Cardale Jones, the Ohio State quarterback who threw for 242 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Those numbers would qualify as good, not great, in this day and age of supercharged offenses, but between the beginning of December and the middle of January he...

Touches Added to Play Index

You often hear about dangerous workloads for NFL running backs and the struggles many have had after particularly taxing seasons. But, particularly in this era, the running game is only part of the equation for backs (though we won't opine on whether or not receptions are less taxing than rushes). Many of them are 3-down players heavily involved in the passing game. With that in...

Top Ten Fantasy Football Busts of All-Time

The fantasy season is upon us! With most fantasy football drafts in the books, there’s more than one guy in each league that’s sweating his first few picks hoping that they pan out how they’d envisioned.

Buckeye defense hoping for 1996 redux

On the second day of Ohio State’s 2014 preseason football camp, Luke Fickell said this was the first offseason since he returned to his alma mater as a coach in 2002 that there was reason to feel bad about how the defense had finished the season. That got me thinking about another season that ended with national title hopes going up in smoke in large part because of a defensive...

Tennessee Titans have the pieces for the spread offense

Since the days of Eddie George in Tennessee, the Titans have relied on the power running game to chug the offense along. That mantra carried over with Travis Henry, LenDale White and now the duo of Shonn Greene and Jackie Battle. But despite what has been said, personnel-wise, Tennessee matches up better as a spread offense than a standard ground game offense. With electric running...
