Riddance Good

Hindsight may be 20/20 but many were calling these potential mistakes before they came to fruition. In order for a successful season to occur, a few items were apparent but ignored. OSU had to stay healthy which did not happen with Nate Williams affecting the entire defense. Joe Bauserman could n...

What Went Right/Wrong: Purdue

First posted at Inside The Shoe While Ohio State has knocked themselves out of a chance to get into the Big Ten Championship Game, there is still an opportunity to build on these last games. This season could very well end in 6-6, or it could end in 8-4. It's a huge difference not only to...

Missouri joins the SEC...East?
