Wrestling: Buckeyes Cruise to 39-6 Win Over Sparty

It was a good weekend for wrestling in Massillon, with the Perry Panthers winning the Division I State Dual Tournament over the weekend. Prior to the Panthers victory, however, the Buckeyes took on Michigan State at Perry High School. In a fairly new tradition, the Buckeyes have hosted a home dual m...

Ohio State - Johns Hopkins Lax Game

Today I had the pleasure of taking in my very first NCAA lacrosse game, featuring the good guys vs. Johns Hopkins. Other than the pothole ridden streets of Baltimore (it's seriously worse than Cleveland), the trip from DC was pretty smooth. As I approached the JHU campus, I was reminded how popul...

2014 Offense

As we all know towards the end of the year the offense became unbearably predictable. In the two postseason games I was able to call damn near every play before the snap (screen to Philly, read option, bomb to nobody) Completely unsat for a team that did what it did for the majority of the season al...

Ryan Shazier: Where does he rank?

Ryan Shazier completed one of the greatest campaigns I have ever seen from an Ohio State linebacker. To me he ranks up there with the great linebackers at Ohio State. He had an amazing 2012, and 2013 was no different. He was always all over the field, and seemed to be involved in every single...

Wrestling: Big Men Spark Comeback Against Purdue

Recap by Curt Heinrichs It’s a good thing that Nick Tavanello has the broadest shoulders on the Buckeye wrestling team because for the 2nd time in the Big Ten dual season, the match’s outcome relied on Tavanello’s heavyweight match. The Buckeyes started slowly, but rallied to come...

What are the most important games in 2014?

What is your list of 2014's most important OSU football games?  For this post, the list only includes scheduled games, not the B1G championship game or playoff/bowl game(s), which would obviously be important games. Yes, it does depend on how you define "important."  That co...

Early Big 10 Bball Losses Good?

Obviously we never want to see any losses and want to go 40-0 with a national championship every year, but that's not reality.  Having said that, it seems to me that Matta-coached teams tend to get revenge better than other teams.  I did some research going back to the 09-10 season loo...

Bradley Roby's Legacy at Ohio State

In the 2012 season Bradley Roby had an amazing year, recording 62 tackles, 17 passes broken up, 2 INTs (1 for a TD), 1 sack, and 1 punt block. He also earned All-American honors in 2012.

Interview with Former Player Chris Malone

I had a chance to catch up with Chris Malone, a former reserve offensive lineman who played for Ohio State from 2006-2011. Contrary to the popular belief that all linemen are big dumb oafs, Chris is a big smart oaf. He is currently completing his 3rd year of medical school at Ohio University. Chri...

Defense

We all seem to get on to the fire Fickell or thank goodness Withers is gone wagon.  However, we really need to think about our defense since Dantonio.  It really hasn't been that great against Top Tier Teams......maybe Mark Snyder was good.  I hear all the pro-Heacock fans do...
