Ohio State 2013 Defensive Recruiting Needs/Offers

Last week I wrote about some of the offensive needs that the team would encounter after the 2012 season, and what recruiting offers were currently out there to address those needs.  Now it's time to focus on what wins championships, according to the old saying, and that is defense. ...

OSU 2013 Offensive Recruiting Needs

While most of us are still recovering from Urban Meyer's in-your-face recruiting domination with the 2012 class, his newly formed staff is already looking ahead.  We are eager to find out what new faces will be on the field in 2012, and already they are checking out high school athletes ...

Which bench player looked best vs Illinois?

I thought Ross looked like a true 1st teamer vs JV in the time he got (probably because he is). We know he can shoot but looked good driving as well. The other night an announcer said even Mr. Defense himself, Bobby Knight, kept subpar defenders in the game if they were a true scor...

Buckeyes, Buckeyes everywhere

I am interested in folks' recollections of far-flung places where they have run into their Buckeye brethren. Some of my own: 1) While living in Belize for two years where I was a biologist at an eco-lodge/research station, we were visited by an OSU Alumni Association tour group which stay...

Bucks wear lavender shirts

1956

  Appearing on his weekly television show during the 1955 season, Woody Hayes was discussing the troubles he had keeping players in school because football kept them too busy to hold meaningful jobs. Hayes then admitted that he often loaned small amounts of money to players that nee...

Shapiro: "I'm taking that program down to Chinatown"

From www.collegefootballtalk.com - Nevin Shapiro is mad as hell and he's not gonna take it anymore. The media has been pretty quiet about the whole Miami scandal since it broke, and of course the Penn State scandal overwhelmed everything else. But, this could get even more interesting. Miami ...

Ohio State True #1 in Hoops

By John Gasaway, ESPN Insider On Saturday, Ohio State will play at Wisconsin, and the conventions of sports writing suggest it's foolish to write a piece about how great any team is right before it plays in Madison. You may have heard that the Badgers tend to win a very high percentage of...

Hidden Gem in 2012 Recruiting Class

As much as I could make this a Jamal Marcus post, because I think he was universally underrated, I wouldn't quite call him a hidden gem at this point. Once Urban said his highlights bordered on "ridiculous", the cat was pretty much out of the bag, so to speak. Plus, at this point, M...

Who started seven nation army

I had a debate the other night with one of my friends on which school started the seven nation army chant.  He said PSU, I said OSU.  I was in B deck in the south stands when OSU played the night game vs USC.  The score board operator played it once and the student section got nuts...

"Sinister" Thomas will average 25 in '12-'13

Why not? We all know that Deshaun isn't bashful and he is certainly an incredibly talented scorer. Looking at next year's team (making certain assumptions), #1 is the logical #1 offensive weapon. I also have to say that "Sinister" is the perfect nickname for the wicked south-paw...
