OSU Offensive Line NFL Draft History Last 20 Years

With the NFL draft coming up rather quickly, I decided to look at how many Big 10 offensive linemen have been taken within the first five rounds over the past 20 years.  The numbers are not shocking.  We suck, firmly entrenched in the middle/bottom of the pack, furiously holdi...

The Best of Three and Out, Blockquoted

M Man, our resident Wolverine expert, already published the definitive review of Three and Out: Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan Wolverines in the Crucible of College Football, John U. Bacon's behind-the-scenes look at Rich Rodriguez's short tenure in Ann Arbor. His review is fair...

Arkansas learned from Tressel's exit

Ok, this is a College Football blog so the 4 people that read this already knew about Bobby 'Admiral Moron' Petrino. Anyway, this reminds me of springtimes past when the 'Tressel Knew' Story hit the waves.  Boy oh boy, don't we remember.  But, OSU, full of resili...

Practice report, 4/14/2012

"Students in first, staff and faculty line up over here - cellphones off and put away!" No, in my years here at OSU - the one year from '97-98, or the ones starting in Winter 2009 - I have never been in the Woody Hayes Athletic Complex.  I could park there with my C permit,...

DJ Moving On

Last Friday DJ published a thought-provoking story encouraging student athletes to seize the option to go pro when opportunities to do so arise. One line in the story, regarding universities generally not caring about whether students graduate, struck a nerve and the comments subsequently turned ...

The One & Done System

The NCAA by their bylaws rules and regulations have made a farce of collegiate athletics. The one and done dilemna that plauges universities and thier supporters is a sign of our society and the "G" factor. Greed has overtaken the better judgement of our people from the government to th...

Thank you, William Buford

Just a rugged looking kid out of Toledo, Ohio, William Buford made his commitment to play basketball for The Ohio State University as a part of the class of 2008. In an era of "one-and-dones" and early departures to the NBA, William Buford stood out as a special kind of player and perso...

Time and Change

One thousand thirteen days ago, I wrote my very first piece on Eleven Warriors. At the time, I spent 8 hours, 5 days a week answering phone calls from irate consumers entering a world of strangeness and unfamiliarity and helping them make sense of it all. In my spare time, I aimed to provide...

OSU vs. KU: An "Insider's" Preview

I know that 11W will have their own preview, but being a big fan of both teams and watching a majority of their games this year I figured I would give it a go.  It’s a bit late, but you can consider it my official application for the 11W beat reporter spot.  I tended to write a bi...

A Few Thoughts on KU-OSU.

Just watched OSU-Syracuse again and have a few thoughts: 1. Craft is FAR and away our most important player. He is unimaginably disruptive to the opponents lead guard, he brings patience, stability and a calming presence on offense and he is an emotional leader out there who pulls the team to...

Daugherty giving credit to OSU:

http://cincinnati.com/blogs/daugherty/2012/03/23/the-mourning-line-323/ Paul Daugherty, Cincinnati Enquirer, was catching a lot of flack here on 11W this morning for that piece he posted.  However, he also wrote this where he gives a lot of credit to how OSU played point by point. At...

Where is Bufford?!?!?!

From the start of the season, William Buford was supposed to be a key player, and starter to the Buckeyes this year. But what happened? He reminded me of a great football player, Cameron Heyward. They both took games off and didn't try at all. It was a disappointment of a senior season for hi...

Sweet Sixteen: OSU vs. Cincy Positional Matchups

As nice as it has been to brag about Ohio putting 4 teams into the Sweet Sixteen, it’s now time to focus on a matchup that will end the season and send home one of those teams.  The Bearcats of Cincinnati are an interesting team to meet in the tournament, because they play a 4 guard ro...

It's All For You

These are not full-time cute kittens. They have ugly day jobs. Indulge me while I chime in on the 11W Beg-a-thon, which is now in its final countdown phase. I've been a Buckeye blogger since 1997. That's before the term blogging was used. Essentially I was providing message board ...

Brady Hoke's twin brother

I remember last year I started to think Brady Hoke looked like Flounder from the movie Animal House. He does. But Flounder may actually be a little too clean and well-groomed for a true Hoke comparison. After recently watching the classic movie Dirty Work, (starring Norm MacDonald), it's ...

Buckeye Basketball: The Two-Faced Monster

Jekyll and Hyde The 2011-12 edition of Ohio State basketball has been nothing short of a comparison to one of the many high flyin’ roller coasters at Cedar Point Amusement Park.  Its peaks, valleys, twists, turns, and even loops have made for one wild ride.  In reality, the...

OSU 1 and Done? It has happened...

Ohio state is a #2 seed.  History says #2 seeds only have a 96.2% chance of victory.  Tasting victory a mere 104 times out of 108 opportunities.  Ok, you can smell the sarcasm... but #15 seeds have won 4 times. #15 Seeds are never feared, they are the unwanted, the untalented, ...

Respect the Basement / March Madness Challenge

"Quite clearly, 11W has filled an unmet need for Buckeyes fans by abandoning milquetoast, sanitized commentary for real talk without forsaking quality or sanity" That line echos in my head ... and like the day that Howard Stern hangs up his headphones and stops doing his live show, ...

Ohio State vs. Loyola (MD) Preview

The first round matchups for schools that are seeded #1 or #2 tend to give us a glimpse at a smaller school that may not be on our radar for the other eleven months out of the year, and Ohio State’s game against the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds on Friday night is no exception.  Unless you&rs...

Urban Meyer & Brady Hoke 2013 Recruiting Comparison

When the dust had settled last month and the 2012 recruiting classes had been established, it was clear that Ohio State and M*chigan had separated themselves from the rest of the Big Ten.  Based on Scout.com’s rankings, OSU and UM finished 3rd and 4th in the country, respectively, and ...

Somebody please explain to me why this guy doesn't play? He adds length to the rotation at 6'8, He shoots the lights out from three point range, and he's thick enough at 225 pounds to help sully rebound underneath! It can't be a defensive problem.... anyone ever see Deshaun Thomas...
