After a whirlwind recruiting process, Wayne Warrior Robert Landers has switched his verbal commitment from West Virginia to Ohio State, and becomes the 24th member of the 2015 class. Landers just received an offer recently, and visited Ohio State on the weekend of the 14th to make an informed decision. According to insiders, he was […]
Well, the day we’d all been fearing is now here… reports indicate that Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman has been offered and has accepted the head coaching job at the University of Houston.
Herman, who’s ties to Texas made him an incredibly strong recruiter in the area, was recently named the Broyles Trophy recipient as the nation’s top assistant coach. His name has been tied to every major job search in the past two years, so it was only a matter of time before he and his family would leave Columbus for the next step in their journey.
Over his three seasons with the Buckeyes, Herman’s offense has broken just about every major university record on that side of the ball. Most impressive was also his work as the Ohio State quarterbacks coach; as you are aware, Herman coached a team with it’s third quarterback to a 59-0 victory over Wisconsin after losing two Heisman candidates at the position in the fall.
Herman’s plans have not been announced yet regarding his participation in the Sugar Bowl prep; we’ll keep you updated as this develops, but it’s expected that he will not leave for Houston fully until the playoff concludes.
Best wishes, Coach Herman… Thank you for your investment at Ohio State! How firm thy friendship…

There’s really not much to complain about from Saturday’s B1G Championship win, but that doesn’t mean we won’t try. For our final edition of Officially Speaking for the 2014 season, let’s take a look at the play that made Corey Smith miss the celebration. Gary: Initially after watching this play I thought it was a horrible […]
Ohio State’s “pipeline” at Glenville is well known and documented. It seems, though, as if there’s a new one in development… to Cass Tech High School in Detroit Michigan. And today, that development brought in a future running back, four star athlete Mike Weber. He will join Damon Webb and Joshua Alabi in Columbus next summer, […]
We first saw the news over at MotSaG that Ohio State’s JT Barrett had police respond to his apartment following reports of a domestic incident.
First things first… Congrats to Ken for winning both the head to head contest with Scott and also our Path To The Playoff challenge this season. Of course, it didn’t hurt that yours truly forgot to turn his picks in for last week… Since Ken’s on the staff, our REAL winner is Toasted Bucknut! Drop […]
We’ve got thoughts on the playoffs and bowls and such, but for now we need to look at how we got to where we are today. So, Take it away, Freddie. The week that we’d been waiting for didn’t disappoint… unless you’re a Big 12 fan. While the rest of the conferences battled it out for […]
The matchups just came out today, but we’re already starting to think about the showdown in New Orleans. Luckily, our friends at Campus Insiders are ahead of the game with these previews of the Crimson Tide, Buckeyes, and the game itself:
As always, we’re grateful when one or more of our team shares with us photos from their Buckeye Experience… and when readers do the same! This time, a few friends of tBBC join Patrick in sending us snapshots… Patrick has been to every conference championship in Indy, so it was great to have him finally […]
Great take from our Bloguin Bros at The Student Section Ohio State eviscerated Wisconsin, and by proxy, the Buckeyes belong in the College Football Playoff. Final score? 59-0. Not making that number up. I promise. That’s about as loaded for you as meeting your girlfriend’s dad for the first time and saying this: “Hi. I’m […]
We’re lucky as always to have Andy Coppens join us from MadTown Badgers… you heard him this morning on the Radio Hour, and he’s been instrumental in helping us get settled in at Bloguin. Our side of the conversation is on his site this morning: you can also
Nebraska’s loss is Ohio State’s gain, as offensive lineman Mirko Jurkovic joins the 2015 Ohio State recruiting class. Jurkovic, who had been a Cornhusker verbal for quite some time, reopened his process this past Sunday. This followed both a trip to Columbus for The Game and the announcement that Bo Pelini had been let go […]
Be honest. On August 18th, when it was discovered that Braxton Miller was out for the season, you wrote off Ohio State’s chances at a B1G title. And you probably laughed out loud at the thought of getting to the National Playoff. “Next year, the Buckeyes will be loaded with Braxton coming back… Just watch!” […]
