Looking Ahead: Running Backs

1. Carlos Hyde, Senior. 6’0”, 235 lbs. Our best running back since Clarett? Hyde hits the hole hard and wiggles in it. He puts tacklers on their backs, doesn't fumble, and he's durable. When he was complaining about playing time, I thought that was crap. BUCK UP BUDDY, WAIT YOUR ...

Looking Ahead: Quarterbacks

1. Braxton Miller, Junior. 6’2”, 220 lbs. Miller came a long way with his passing last year. He was still a little below average, but as a freshman he was uncorking bombs like Raul Ibanez. If he stays healthy, I think our worst-case scenario is going 13–0 and then watching in horro...

My Review of the Paterno Report

The Paterno Report - a response to the Freeh Report on Penn State's role in the Jerry Sandusky tragedy - was released this morning. It was no surprise; the Paternos made it known that they had commissioned a response to what former FBI director Louis Freeh compiled last year. It's importa...

2013 OSU Positional Talent w/r/t Recruiting Rankings

*EDITED* I removed the list of potential transfers and just listed positions where we may see transfers. Hope that clears up the controversy. A couple of days ago I posted a comparision of the last two recruiting classes for Ohio State and Michigan using the 24/7 Composite Ratings as the sole metri...

Signed, Sealed, and Delivered: Timothy Gardner

Last June, Indianapolis (IN) OG Timothy Gardner committed to Ohio State, or at least he thought he did. It turns out there was some miscommunication between Timothy and the staff and he did not have an offer at the time. The coaches asked Gardner to shed 30 pounds and if he achieved that goal, they ...

Signed, Sealed, and Delivered: Jayme Thompson

Today the Buckeyes officially added 24 new players, which could grow to 25, depending on where Johnny Townsend ends up. I caught up with Toledo (OH) Central Catholic safety Jayme Thompson to talk about officially becoming a Buckeye shortly after he signed his NLOI: Signing/Becoming a Buckeye...

Clear Picture of Roster Space

Here is the current scholarship count following NSD. 58 returning players and 24 signed letters of intent. Johnny Townsend is still in the queue. As you can see, if the Buckeyes do indeed add Townsend to this count, it would mean that one of the players below would not be on the roster come the sta...

@rivalsmike: Bell to Ohio State his "educated guess"

i know this is does not mean vonn bell is a lock to Ohio State, but this is definately a big confidence boost. Mike Farrell is the best recruiting insider i have seen. I rarely see him miss on a recruit prediction. This has got to mean something, right? Bell i believe is a cant-miss, do-everything-p...

The Population Myth

Most people seem to think that more people equals more talent.  That is to say that talent is random.  They say if there are more people in the south than in the north then there will be more talented players to choose from in the south.  This logic dictates that not only will more pe...
