Another week, another set of crazy results? Okay, maybe not so much in the past week as most teams headed towards finals week and thusly started to take it a bit easy on the scheduling front. However, there were plenty of results that affected the pecking order for the conference. We’ve got just a few […]
Per LGHL, per the OSU Athletic Department, Kyle Dodson has “retired” from football due to a neck injury.
According to the release, the school’s medical staff determined Dodson had a neck condition and as a result has been medically disqualified from continuing to play football. Dodson, who hails originally from Cleveland Heights High School in the greater Cleveland area, had played in only one game during the 2014 season. He’d appeared briefly in three games in 2013.
Kyle is a member of the ’12 recruiting class, Urban’s first class at Ohio State.
We wish Kyle the very best in his life. Yes, there is life beyond football.
Good luck, Kyle.
Award season has come and gone. So has offensive coordinator Tom Herman. The Crimson Tide are waiting and the Buckeyes are planning for an all out assault. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!

Our friends at Campus Insiders help bring us the latest from New Orleans as Pete Fiutak brings us the blueprint on how Ohio State can defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl.
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 […]
From the Associated Press, several Buckeyes appear on their 2014 All-America Team. Joey Bosa was named 1st team and J.T. Barrett 3rd and Michael Bennet were named 3rd team.

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…

We have had plenty of discussions over the season, since the VaTech loss, about what this team would look like come the TTUN game. Even though most of Buckeye Nation had this teams back and thought they’d pull it off, they all still had a sneaking suspicion they may not get past Sparty let alone […]
Our friends at Campus Insiders bring you the latest thoughts from Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer as he talks to the the media during the Playoff Coaches Press Conference.
Back in mid-October, I did a short article on the comparison of the 2014 Ohio State running performance to the 2013 version. As a refresher, I wondered how the 2014 version of a pretty talented quarterback, a decent running back and a reconstituted offensive line stacked up against the 2013 unit of a top rated […]
