Sunday Morning Coffee: October 26, 1919

The Sunday morning breeze was brisk. A settling of coldness had dropped anchor on the region – hovering just a degree or two above the freezing mark. Quietness had descended in the early morning hours, only a distant rumbling of nature, a whisking wind, or a car not so near, managed to eke any semblance […]

Making The List: Alice “Lefty” Hohlmeyer

When I started this listing of great Buckeyes, the obvious such as Jesse Owens, Jack Nicklaus, Woody Hayes, Archie Griffin, Jerry Lucas, Herb Williams, and Katie Smith were all guaranteed to be mentioned. Their accomplishments were completely golden and were well beyond the purpose of this weekly briefing of some of the greatest athletes to […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 19, 1919

The young man exited the house at 970 Oak Street at exactly six-thirty in the morning. A chill was in the air – the cloudiness simmered any attempts of the sun’s brightness from unlocking any hopes of a nicer day. The young man buttoned up the brown wool jacket he had just slipped his arms […]

How They Compare: 2014 Defense vs. 2016 Defense

On Friday, I took a position by position look at how the 2014 and 2016 offenses compared heading into their respective seasons.  It showed the two teams were pretty similar on paper and each had their strengths.  Today we will take a look at the defenses and see how they stack up against each other […]

Pre-Fall Outlook: Ohio State Defensive Line

Back in February, I took a look at arguably the strongest positional group for the 2016 Buckeyes.  Things have not changed too much five months later as we are staring directly down the barrel of fall practice beginning.  There were two major shake-ups which came out of the spring practices.  First, Donovan Munger unfortunately had […]

How They Compare: 2014 Offense vs. 2016 Offense

It has been well-documented the Buckeyes have lost 16 starters from last year’s team.  Additionally, it has been well-publicized that approximately all of them went in the first round this year of the NFL draft.  Naturally, we as a fan base would like to use our memories of the glorious 2014 season and compare the […]

Making The List: Peter “Pete” George

In our pursuit to bring to focus some of the great past names of athletics from The Ohio State University in Making the List, often names are missed – even intended to bring out at another time … but the grand tool of forgetfulness arrives and good intent vanishes as it arrives to another worthy […]

Bill Belichick, Ebner recalls, was welcoming of his pursuit […]

Good things on horizon for Ohio State men’s hoops team

In 1992 the Chicago Cubs were stuck in a quagmire despite what was supposed to be a homerun free agent class of slugger George Bell, ace Danny Jackson and closer Dave Smith. Clubhouse attendant Yosh Kiwano saw the team brass moping around and told them sometimes you can add by subtracting. The Cubs traded Bell […]

This week let’s journey into baseball. The Buckeyes had some fantastic players in the wondrous world played on a diamond.

Pre-Fall Outlook: Ohio State “Slobs”

As I wrote about in February, one of the major question marks for the 2016 Ohio State offense will be the offensive line.  They lose three starters and must turn to young, albeit highly touted, student athletes to step in and protect quarterback J.T. Barrett.  After spending their entire Buckeye career learning from Ed Warriner, […]

Making The List: Mark Coleman

For this week’s Making the List I have decided to have some fun. There are so many Buckeyes in a host of sports that have been great in the sport of which they participated that are deserving of recognition. Some of these great athletes slide from the notice they justifiably have earned behind some of […]
