Gordon Gee: Big Ten expansion talks ongoing

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee told the university’s Athletic Council last December that talks regarding the Big Ten’s further expansion were “ongoing”.

Buckeye Learnings

Well, the undefeated season for the Ohio State Buckeyes is officially over. All we are left to deal with are articles about what could have been, what should have been and what the NCAA or Ohio State could have done differently to avoid this debacle. Somewhere along the line you will find articles tying all

The Buckeye Leaves

buckeye_leaves-300x189

The Big Ten has been busy the last two days handing out conference awards. Keep something in mind as we talk about which Buckeyes did and didn’t make these all conference teams and individual honors: Ohio State finished 8-0 in Big Ten play. Nebraska finished 7-1, Michigan 6-2 and Penn State 6-2. I mention those

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

College Football Rumors: Maryland and Rutgers to join Big Ten?

The number ten in the name “Big Ten” might be about to get even sillier according to an ESPN report that indicates Maryland is negotiating and that it could pave the way for Rutgers to follow suit. A source told ESPN.com that the Big Ten has been itchy about further expansion since Notre Dame made

The Buckeyes’ “Meaningless” Season

When this season began for The Ohio State Buckeyes, sadly, most of us immediately began talking about Next Year. This season was a “development year” that was going to allow coaches to identify talent, develop said talent, and create a powerhouse for years to come. It is a bowl ban year, after all. There are

Perfection in reach for Ohio State

Urban Meyer, Braxton Miller

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,

Sophomore LB Ryan Shazier was the co-defensive player of the week for his performance against Penn State on Saturday- “Ryan Shazier, Ohio State So., LB, Plantation, Fla./Plantation Returned an interception 17 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter against Penn State, giving Ohio

Tweet: Buckeye QB Cardale Jones Doesn’t Like Class

I have a hard time killing the kid for feeling this way, but tweeting “we ain’t come to play SCHOOL” is pretty dumb on a number of levels. From The Huffington Post: Cardale Jones, the third-string quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes, doesn’t understand what the heck he’s doing going to classes and having to

Know the Enemy – Buckeye Edition

The Buckeyes got their first real test on Saturday afternoon going into East Lansing and squeaking out a close win in normal Ohio State fashion. It was a mile-marker of sorts for the team, coaches and university because it was their first road game as well as their first B1G match-up that presented some big

The Argument – Braxton’s Buckeyes

“This team is awful.” “How can we be this bad??” “Urban Meyer is overrated and it’s showing. It’s UAB!” “Braxton Miller needs to run it 15+ times per game at minimum!” Outside of a wide range of expletives, all of those comments littered my twitter feed and text messages almost verbatim (feel free to identify

“He’s Different” – A Buckeye Profile

Oh Denard...you deserved this

When you stop and think about it, I find it almost surreal that as Ohio State fans we were watching a tortured Buckeye team try and claw their way back into a game against the Miami Hurricanes, one year ago, almost to the day. Really, it had nothing to do with football. I hate the term,

Ohio State – Hype or Hope?

Given that my last post did not exactly spark the conversation I wanted it to, I decided to take a different approach on topics to stir things up a bit. I understand that WFNY has primarily covered Cleveland sports and Ohio State has taken a back seat to it, but I will figure out a

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-11 – Browns, Buckeyes, Suspensions and 2-point Conversions

Rick and Craig are back at it again and no we still don’t have an opener. Sorry, I was too busy bringing a new child into the world. Excuse me. Get off my back, ok? Anyway, Rick and I talked about the Browns and Buckeyes mostly. As soon as I get TD or Jon on

A Buckeye Youth Movement

There is not a time that this site really captures its own name like it does right now when it comes to Ohio sports. If you are wondering, yes, I am completely aware of how cliche that sounds but look at this: the Browns are holding 15 rookies on their 53-man roster, the Cavs are

Penn State Receives NCAA Sanctions

Last night was a night of rumor and speculation around what would be handed down to Penn State today from the NCAA. No reason to wonder anymore. Penn State has a 4-year bowl ban, a $60 million fine, and lost scholarships to deal with. To top it all off, all PSU wins since 1998 have

OSU LB Storm Klein Arrested

Ohio State senior linebacker Storm Klein was arrested Friday evening in Columbus on charges of domestic violence and assault. Klein, who has started 10 games for the Buckeyes and a potential starter, remains innocent until proven guilty of course. But his arrest marks already the 3rd arrest for Buckeye players since Urban Meyer’s arrival. The

OSU’s Jared Sullinger Not Invited to NBA Draft Green Room

This is not hyperbole right now. I’m not sure Ohio State has had a player with higher character than Jared Sullinger since Thad Matta took over. First round draft picks rarely need sympathy, nor to be hyped up, and it’s tough to feel bad for a guy who is about to be very rich playing

Ohio State Wins ESPN’s Lawsuit Over Public Records

If you recall a while back, we talked a little bit about the ESPN lawsuit they brought against the Ohio State administration. The basis of the case is that when the Jim Tressel scandal broke, ESPN’s Tom Farrey made repeated requests for information from the University, citing Ohio’s Open Records Laws. While OSU did turn over
