Rumble, Young Men, Rumble: Ohio State Season in Review

Carlos-Hyde-2013-600x400

Today we look back. Forget the star-studded 2014 recruiting class. Forget the possibility of having someone not named Luke Fickell coaching the Ohio State defense next season. Today we have but one purpose, and that is to relive the peaks and valleys, twists and turns of another Buckeyes season in the books.

Ohio State blows out the Boilermakers 56-0, now 21-0 under Meyer

Carlos Hyde is athletic.

This game was never going to be close, but Purdue did themselves no favors. We weren’t even a full minute into the game when Doran Grant returned Danny Etling’s interception to the house to put Ohio State up 7-0. Purdue proceeded to go three and out on their next possession but a crappy punt gave

Urban Meyer, Mad Scientist: On the Dual-QB formation

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Exchanges are some of the most fundamental actions in football. Center to quarterback. Quarterback to running back. If a team struggles to execute these simple things, then it is highly likely that team will not be successful. Last week in the blowout of Penn State, Urban Meyer debuted a new formation and teased the possibility

Braxton and the Bucks hand Penn State record-breaking loss

686 total yards. 408 yards rushing. 63 points. 9 touchdowns. I could stop there, because in a way that really says it all. For the sake of storytelling, however, I’ll continue. Braxton Miller looked as good as he has in scarlet and gray. Carlos Hyde continued to build on the momentum of his last two

Nothing to see here: Why the Buckeyes must stick with Braxton Miller

Kenny Guiton is the truth. If the video below (fast forward to the 2:50 mark if you wish) did not do the trick, I told you last week, and then he went out and made me look prescient against Cal. Last Saturday in Berkeley, Buckeyes fans witnessed a coming out party. Guiton had proven himself in

NCAA News: Braxton Miller a gameday decision for Ohio State

“He [Braxton Miller]’s moving much better. He conditioned pretty hard after practice [on Wednesday]. Today’s another big day. Tomorrow’s another big day.

The Other Quarterback: Kenny Guiton and his smooth jazz keep the Buckeye offense in rhythm

purdue kenny g

Urban Meyer has made public his thoughts about Braxton Miller’s status for Ohio State’s game against Cal this Saturday night. The Buckeyes’ coach believes that his Heisman candidate quarterback will be on the field in the team’s first road game of the season. But I’m not interested in that today.

WFNY_roundtable

The Ohio State Buckeyes are 2-0 on the young season, but they face their first road game of the year against the Cal Golden Bears on Saturday night in primetime (on this coast, anyway). With plenty of storylines after the first two wins, we dove into some of the hot button issues for the scarlet

The Baffling Buckeyes

Well, as I said last week, our little run-in with Purdue in 2002 took several years off my life and this past Saturday only aided in yet another subtraction. While the expectations are much different for this season, it was still Purdue in spite of the fact that we knew they would give our defense

Wow, what a game. Anyone that would have ever guessed that Kenny Guiton would be the hero in a Buckeyes victory likely would have been labeled as crazy before this one. But Braxton Miller’s injury forced Guiton into the ballgame, where he miraculously saved the Buckeyes’ perfect season by leading the team to two TDs
