Starting around 10:30 this morning, the Ohio State Buckeyes began checking into their team hotel. By 1pm the entire team (other than Braxton Miller, who must have snuck in the back door) had made its way past the throng of reporters assembled on the hotel steps. Click through the gallery above to view 67 photos from the day.

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

I would not want to see that image if I was an opposing QB. I wouldn't sleep for a month.

Kwon is going to be a monster.
I didn't know who Russell Doup is. Does that make me less of a fan?

$35 is the going rate for a tight hat these days. Hey, at least it lasts longer than the $200 Air Jordans!

Where are they coming from and going to that they all went in 1 or 2 at a time?

Walt Keys's picture

They all arrived over a two hour period, checked in, then left for the WHAC. Some of these shots they're coming, some they're going.

They are in for a couple of unpleasant weeks. Hopefully it strengthens the Power of the Unit. Pretty anxious (ravenously hungry, actually) for progress updates.

Joshua Perry looks like he is selling stocks and bonds.  From the all business appearance of these men I recommend buying Bucks and dumbing whatever SEC shares you are holding!

You know, looking at all these guys in the pics, I sincerely hope they all fight hard to the end and are rewarded with a National Championship in 2015. Good luck fellas.

I don't know why this gets me excited about football.  It never fails though.  Year after year I look forward to these photos.  A rite of passage I suppose.  A signal of good things to come.

As an usher except for having to show up two and a half hours early after a two an a half hour drive, was the pleasure of watching the players walking into the stadium.  No one else there inside but the ushers.  After an away game they would play "The boys are back in town" followed by the Saprano's theme song "Bad moon rising".  Don't know if I got the song titles right but I think you get the picture.  AWESOME SITE!

I might take heat/flack for this... but in this ONE situation, I prefer TheOzone's method for this... as they actually list who the player is for each picture.  Hence, I actually know who I'm looking at.  So... if you're like me, here you go >> http://photo.theozone.net/

Eleven Warriors is great for everything else (except still lacking on the Depth Chart & Scholly Grid thing too :-) )
