Ohio State Buckeyes Urban Meyer

Now that we’ve tired of wondering about which players might go pro, it’s reasonable to wonder about coaches too. Certainly, Urban Meyer would be a desirable candidate for many NFL franchises that are constantly looking for new ways to get a leg up on competition.

Hooray semesters! Ohio State gets extra practice time over Oregon

Jamie Sabau, Getty Images

In 2012, all Ohio public universities officially switched to the semester system after a long history of mismatched academic calendars. Ohio State, for one, was previously on the oft-beloved quarter system and that led to a very short summer for students returning back to campus in August 2012. But in the lead-up to the College

Someone let the third string quarterback know that he’s one of the final lines of defense before Ezekiel Elliott running 100% wildcat for Ohio State’s offense. He must not be aware because he’s doing gymnastics for the sake of comedy. Someone show him the video of Ted Ginn getting hurt during a TD celebration or something.

Last week, I wrote about the coaching matchup and the shadow it will cast over the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl between Ohio State and Alabama.

The date was January 2, 1978. The Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans was the site. The teams: Ohio State, led by the legendary Woody Hayes, and Alabama, under the guidance of the fabled Paul “Bear” Bryant. And the result – not a pretty one for those in scarlet and grey, as the Crimson Tide ran

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.
