Bring on ‘Bama

Ohio State Buckeyes

It is no exaggeration to say that last weekend will be forever remembered amongst the greatest in all of Ohio State lore. A third-string quarterback — who, it must be noted, I told you to believe in — making his first career start in the Big Ten Championship Game and playing a game so flawless that

A Buckeye weekend for the ages

Ohio State Buckeyes

Last Wednesday night, I got a text from my buddy Steve. Steve, his twin brother Matt, and I have been friends since eighth grade. All three of us also went to Ohio State together and lived with each other for four years. Quite frankly, if not for these two, this Buckeye fanatic may very well

I believe in Cardale Jones and you should too

Cardale Jones Ohio State Buckeyes

J.T. Barrett’s rise was meteoric. He went from unknown redshirt freshman to inexperienced quarterback struggling mightily against Virginia Tech to wise-beyond-his-years Heisman candidate and shredder of defenses in just over three months. His development made the question, “Will Braxton Miller get his starting job back next season?” a real discussion and put him on the

Buckeyes comeback falls just short in Louisville

Thad Matta Ohio State Buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeye men’s basketball team had about as putrid of an offensive start to a game as you’ll ever to see when they looked ill-prepared on the road against a tenacious Louisville defense that sped them up, challenged every shot, and gave them fits. If you want to give them credit for anything, it’s this: Ohio

Here’s to an embarrassing exit for The School Up North

Ohio State Buckeyes Ohio Stadium

Ohio State and Michigan. They call it “The Game.” It’s a name that lends the matchup the gravitas it deserves, but it’s not a catchy title that can rival the likes of “The Backyard Brawl” (Pitt vs. West Virginia), “The Red River Rivalry” (Texas vs. Oklahoma), “Bedlam” (Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State), “The Holy War” (BYU

Ohio State Doesn’t Need Michigan’s Talent

Sports rivalries are a special thing. An attempt to justify their existence or pretend that they contribute anything meaningful to society is a completely fruitless exercise. Documentarians and generations past can rationalize the energy that teams and fans invest in disliking each other, often relying on a mostly-fabricated anecdote from the 1920s that likely involves a

Ohio State Preparing for Indiana, Not Looking Past Them

Marvin Fong, The Plain Dealer

I’m a college student. While I don’t attend Ohio State, my weekends are frequently spent driving from Philadelphia to various campuses to watch the Buckeyes. So it was only natural that I received a text this week from a friend who is a student at OSU asking me if I’d be interested in heading to

Can Urban Meyer keep the momentum rolling for Ohio State?

Ohio State Buckeyes

After 35 games and almost three full seasons, Urban Meyer finally has his first signature win at Ohio State. That last weekend’s resounding triumph over Michigan State in East Lansing put the Buckeyes squarely back in the hunt for a berth in the inaugural College Football Playoff made it doubly satisfying. Now, with his team

That mediocre schedule

We all knew this day would come. The Ohio State Buckeyes were eventually going to lose a regular season game under Urban Meyer. The streak couldn’t go on forever, it was inevitably going to end at some point. Still, most Buckeyes fans wouldn’t have pointed to last week’s game against Virginia Tech as the matchup

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

  For a preview of the Ohio State defense, click here. The 2013 edition of the Ohio State offense was an undeniable juggernaut. The highlight reel quarterback. The rumbling running back. Kenny freaking G. But now, with the 2014 season just hours away, as Drake once said, “nothing was the same.”

Imperfect finish to an imperfect season: Bucks fall to Dayton

craftmiss

It was the opener to the wall of games yesterday afternoon. In the in-state matchup that doesn’t happen very often, “little brother” Dayton had nothing to lose against the Buckeyes, and they played like it. The Ohio State Buckeyes showed their warts as they have all season long, and they went down just as they
