As a professional (snicker) journalist, I have always prided myself on two things: I never sensationalize and I never try and create the news. I don’t write speculative stories. Never have.

The Ohio State Buckeyes silenced any disaster the Golden Hurricane presented during week two of the college football regular season.
Despite a sluggish start, Ohio State put together a 48-3 win behind the defensive excellence of Marshon Lattimore and Malik Hooker, who scored on interceptions late in the second quarter to give the Buckeyes a 20-3 lead heading into the locker room.
The offense did the rest in the second half, scoring four touchdowns behind the leadership of J.T. Barrett, who scored two rushing touchdowns in the second half. Mike Weber, Curtis Samuel, and Barrett combined to rush for 225 yards and three scores.

The Buckeyes received a commitment from Tate Martell back in May, and that kind of put […]
This weekend was the dreaded bye week for our beloved Buckeyes. While I’m sure they wished they had the bye week later on in the season, Coach Meyer and his staff used the time to work on fundamentals and get everyone a little healthier as they get ready for Big Ten play. While the Buckeyes […]

So much for our idle week. No, not Idol. Idle. Like, not playing. Some call it a bye week. Or what the Cleveland Browns do every Sunday. Not play. Anyway, since OSU didn’t play, this won’t be a traditional AYNE since most of the things or crack staff wanted to see have to do with OSU. […]
