The Chase – Which “Star” Will Shine the Brightest in 2013

Over the last week, Buckeye Empire has been examining the star position at Ohio State. It is somewhat unclear at this point as to who will assume that role in 2013. In this article, I will discuss which player is most likely to earn the starting nod and who he will be competing against along the way.

Ohio State Player Profile: Christian Bryant

  The Ohio State Buckeyes had a dominating defensive unit it 2012, helping the Buckeyes to a 12-0 season. This season the Buckeyes will be looking to replace all that was lost to graduation and to the NFL Draft. The Bucks lost 2 members of their defensive back field in Orhian Johnson and Travis Howard. So the remaining members of that backfield are going to have to use their experience...

Safety Dance

  The Buckeye Empire Summer Series continues with a look back at the 2012 season and the safety position, C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant in particular. The defensive secondary is the last thing standing between an opposing offense and the end zone and the safeties are a smaller subset of that last line. Luckily for Ohio State, the safety position is the one unit on the defensive...

SOTT Interview, Texans Rookie Orhian Johnson

Orhian Johnson Orhian Johnson has a real quality skill set the NFL teams look for and the Houston Texans realized what he was and is. Spending four seasons in Columbus, Ohio, Johnson attended on of the more storied schools in the country at The Ohio State University.

Players, coaches learn different lessons at this year's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

CARSON, CALIF.,-- When history looks back on Saturday’s NFLPA Bowl, few will remember many of the particulars surrounding the National team’s 34-0 victory over the American squad.

No bowl for Buckeyes? This week, it's no issue

Understandably, the countdown to Saturday's Ohio State - Michigan game includes discussion of what might have been for the 11-0 but bowl-banned Buckeyes and several what-if scenarios. The Buckeyes have earned the right to be highly-regarded and highly-ranked, and to think about what might have been if not for the one-year postseason ban levied by the NCAA. This week, though,...

Ohio State’s One Game Season

On Saturday afternoon I drove to the barbershop to get a haircut where I was greeted by the owner who happens to be a war veteran that has more opinions than there are topics. Just my kind of place. I was sporting an Ohio State hoodie and upon sitting down, he asks me if I think the Buckeyes will beat Wisconsin this afternoon. I replied, emphatically: “I sure do. I hope that they...

Ohio State football: Meyer keeps things interesting against UCF

Going for a first quarter fourth-down conversion from his own 47. Accepting a chop block penalty after a third down stop to give the Knights another shot at moving the chains.
