Football is back. The 2014 edition of the Ohio State Buckeyes took to the WHAC's practice field on a scorcher of day in Columbus. The first four periods of practice were open to the media, so I grabbed some photos, which you can view using the gallery above. 

Pro-tip: If you're looking for captions, just click the little "i" in the upper-left corner.

Excuse me for being ignorant....but what exactly is "incognito mode"? No kidding. Is it like "I want to see these pics and I'm at work so I have to slip on Harry Potter's invisibility cloak so I won't be seen while I'm salivating over Buckeye Football and not at my desk, working? I'll slip it on for just a couple of pics real quick."

I can't wait for the season to start, either, brother.

Thanks, Urb!

It means that whatever you look at in incognito mode will not show up in your browser history.

A sign of respect from Coach Meyer...

Freshman Johnny Dixon and Raekwon McMillan practiced with older players in PM and not rooks in AM.

I wasn't even good enough while playing D-III to practice with the seniors as a freshman and these two are doing it on the D-I level. Amazing.

I yelled to my wife football fall camp started. "Yeah" she says.......

They just don't get it. 

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

I just yelled "Ohio State Football Pics" to my wife. First she said "F-You, I'm busy changing the flat tire on the jeep"...Then I heard the door open and shut and she walked in with a lug wrench and I thought I was going to lose some teeth. But then...."Well, go to the beginning, I want to see them all."

Somethin' kinda special about 50 year old redneck women that love college football (5 of the 7 total siblings in her family went to Florida State (Changing my Wendy into a Buckeye fan was easy as she was never a student at FSU). The 2 that didn't were my Wendy and her younger brother that got drafted by the San Diego Padres. Her oldest sister was a sorority sister at Chi Omega during the Ted Bundy attacks. White people are just crazy. My wife's oldest sister was a resident at the Chi Omega House when the Bundy attacks happened (she was not home at the time of the mayhem) and their Dad kept sending his girls there (5 in total as their family had 6 daughters and finally , last, they had their son.

"White people are crazy is a line that I kinda stole from Eddie Murphy. In his "stand up" he talks about "The Amityville Horror" and says that the house says "Get Out"....later he says, "not only did the white people stay, they invited more white people over". I watched "Delirious" and "Raw" the other night. It is amazing how much I still laugh over those 2 stand-up comedies.

Thanks, Urb!

Have to say I never knew  11w  had a  Walt Keys employed here. With a name like that I  would expect you to be making a border run in southern Texas or Arizona. Great pics man and highly appreciated. Love the last one of Jalin Marshall.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Is that like "Rod Jones" that we had on BTN a couple of years ago?

Good point - I didn't notice the black stripe. Dixon looks kind of skinny in the photos for the 198 lbs he is listed at.

I'd trust Beth on this one. She is usually right on top of what these teenage boys are wearing.

Jalin Marshall looks pretty big in that last picture. I hope he can be a contributor this year, I was really excited when we recruited him.

Love the picture of Coach Meyer talking to the team. He has everyone's attention other than Mr. Washington, who took a moment to pray for the wrath he's going to unleash on QB's this fall.

God I love OSU football!

GO BUCKS!

Yeah, I'm not buying Meyer's line about the Rbs... It's EzE's world and the other backs are living in it

If we're gonna give Zeke credit for being at the front of the circle, then we gotta give Michael Thomas credit for being right up there too.

What's with the short vids?

Jason Priestas's picture

Ohio State asks that they're kept short. Not everyone complies.

Dummy drills on garbage cans? Is that a secret to Larry Johnson's success? Anything that works, right?

Maybe they have to earn their Buckeye stripes like the freshmen have to earn the removal of the black stripe?

I really think Johnny D is a stud waiting to happen. Out of all of the freshman I'm most excited to see what that kid can do.

Txsbuckeye's picture

I hope so. But watch Curtis Samuel - he will steal your heart while he blows by you like you are standing still.

Every time I see a picture of Cameron Johnston, I can only think of Nigel 'The Leg' Gruff from The Replacements. No disrespect to Cameron and I know Nigel and he aren't even from the same continent. Just funny to me.

Was the D-line drill with the barrels a Navy cut-block drill or just a standard D-line drill?

(pic #26 here & pic #2 on the other thread)

CGroverL's picture

The "barrels" were upside-down Rubbermaid garbage cans...I'm still wondering about them.
