Ohio State Player Profile – Braxton Miller

Millions of words have been written about Ohio State’s starting quarterback from Huber Heights, Ohio. He is easily the most recognizable member of the entire football team. The leader. The captain. The Heisman Favorite. Miller will enter the season with enormous expectations and by all accounts, he appears to be ready for the task at hand. Only time will show whether or not he...

The Backup: ‘Keep Calm and Put Kenny G In The Game.’

At some point in the 2013 season Braxton Miller will be taken out of the game. Hopefully it only happens when the Buckeyes are leading big late in the game. However, we all know that at some point in the upcoming season, Braxton is going to have miss a series due to injury. It’s football, not a knitting class and people sometimes get hurt, it’s part of the game. When that happens...

Perfection in reach for Ohio State

THE Ohio State Buckeyes are two wins away from an undefeated season, and the sports world is barely talking about it. Since the Buckeyes aren’t bowl eligible, people are giving this team less respect than Houston received last year during their 10-0 start. Around the country, the Buckeyes aren’t even being given Boise State treatment, in which at least a minority were questioning...

Midweek Serenity: Mere Mortals

  I don’t know about you, but I felt like I needed some midweek serenity on Saturday night, immediately after this loss. Perspective has come though. If not from the devastating hurricane and its aftermath, then from a few days of distance from a frustrating and emotional loss. Here are the three final thoughts I have on last weekend.   --An old football coach once...

It’s time we talk about Kenny Guiton

  Urban Meyer has faith in both of signal callers. It’s about time we talk about Ohio State’s back-up quarterback Kenny Guiton. Guiton was a three sport athlete out of Texas who chose to go to Ohio State in 2009. This is his fourth season with the Buckeyes; he was red-shirted as a freshman, and still has another year on the team. He hasn’t taken a lot of snaps, but got a chance...

Urban Era is about evolving the program

  Urb’s beautiful mug via Associated Press The debate about the new Urban Era may have potentially overlooked one huge aspect: the working with the talent that they already have to build up their program. This is a scenario that programs throughout are faced with on a yearly basis. Not only is this a collegiate level issue, but this writer has seen firsthand with high school teams...

The Buckeye OL Isn’t Worth Talking About, and Other Things that are Ok by Me

A game like Saturday is great. Especially for a fanbase that has been through what Ohio State fans have been through over the course of the last year. Watching the offense rack up hundreds upon hundreds of yards in the second quarter of the game, it felt like the demon that is Walrusball was finally being exorcised. These games are also tricky, though. What should be made of them...

Big 10 Win Totals: Michigan State, Nebraska Over/Under 8.5

Meyer says OSU offense will have faster tempo than Florida

Amidst praise of several of his offensive weapons, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer says that the only big changes between his spread offense at the University of Florida and the one he will run this coming season will be that the Buckeyes will use no-huddle play calling and the tempo will be “faster than ever.” In 2008, the most recent National Championship won by Meyer...

The best (and worst) of the season. Today: The year's most improbable, thrilling and landscape-shifting rallies. 5. Nebraska 34, Ohio State 27. In a battle of competing "collapse" memes, was beginning to look like an even less salvageable pile of rubble than Ohio State's offense: One week removed from a rock-bottom effort against Michigan State, the Buckeyes...

Luke Fickell was an admirable stopgap for Ohio State

There's no head coaching job waiting at the end of this season for Luke Fickell, but there's certainly an appreciation — across Buckeye nation - for how he kept Ohio State together in the face of adversity. In spite of all the off-field problems Ohio Sate endured, Fickell held the program together with a strong defense and a spotty offense and managed to go 6-6 and get...

But Can They Beat a 27.5 Point Spread?

Given the situation, it would be easy to say that the Ohio State Buckeyes are in danger of looking past Indiana this Saturday. With Penn State, Michigan and a potential trip to the Big Ten championship looming in the background, it would be easy to overlook the Hoosiers. The fact that this is a young team only reinforces the idea. Realistically however, Indiana offers...

Badgers not underestimating the Buckeyes

MADISON, Wis. Sure, the perennial football king of the Big Ten appears down. It would be awfully easy to declare that Ohio State has finally been de-robed and kicked to the curb, left to suffer with the peasants that make up the conferences lower-tier teams. The reality is the Buckeyes are a young team steadily making progress, with a true freshman starting quarterback, a first...
