The 2014-2015 Bowl Season begins tonight when the Mt. Union Purple Raiders (14-0) play the Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawks (14-0) in the 2014 Stagg Bowl, held in Salem, VA. This is the Division III football championship game. This game matches, again, two storied D-III programs. There are two storylines with this game. First, Mt. Union, in Alliance OH, […]
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.
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 […]
Raise your hand if you saw Saturday coming? Everyone put your hand down. Nobody predicted the a$$ whipping THE gave Wisconsin. A win? Yes, I was expecting a win. Cardale? Never was I expecting those kinds of numbers and that efficiency Defense? Yeah right. I thought it would be a 10-14 point win for OSU. […]
As we saw last night, the Ohio State Buckeyes rolled a pretty good Wisconsin team, 59-zip. Was it enough to move Ohio State from the “looking in” 5th spot to the Final Four of the CFB chosen? This is CFB’s version of Musical Chairs; 4 chairs available with 6 teams circling: Alabama, Oregon, TCU, Florida […]
BIG TEN CHAMPIONS For the second season in a row, the Ohio State Buckeyes visited Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game. This year’s game was quite unlike the previous edition, as the Scarlet and Gray laid the wood to the Wisconsin Badgers to the tune of a 59-0 final score. The biggest surprise (or […]
Let’s get it on! Saturday night can not come quickly enough for me. I’m sure Cardale Jones feels the same way. A lot is at stake in the B1G championship game but the big prize — a trip to the College Football Playoff — is what everyone is eyeing. Jones will make his first start and […]
The #6 Buckeyes (11-1, 8-0) meet the #14 Wisconsin Badgers (10-2, 7-1) Saturday evening in Indianapolis in the Big Ten Championship game. There is a lot on the line for the Buckeyes. If Ohio State wins, they are certainly in the discussion for the Football Final Four© as determined by the CFB Selection Committee. Overview: Welcome to […]
I have a few additional thoughts about Saturday’s win in The Game that I want to touch upon today. My immediate post-game recap tends to be a stream-of-consciousness game flow effort. This has a bit more thought put to it. If you need a quick refresher on Saturday’s win over Michigan 42-28, go here, then breathe a […]
I know I echo the thoughts of all Buckeye fans when I say I wish a speedy recovery to JT Barrett and hope he returns next year better than ever. Despite all the bad stuff, hey everyone, WE BEAT MICHIGAN, AGAIN!! Turn that frown upside down. We will be fine with Cardale Jones. I admit, […]
One last look back as The Game looms…
The #6 (CFB) Buckeyes (10-1, 7-0) host the TTUN Wolverines (5-6,3-4) Saturday for a 12:00 noon EST kickoff. Last week, Ohio State sort of edged Indiana 42-27, while TTUN lost to Maryland, 23-16 on two 4th quarter Maryland TD’s. Overview: Welcome to the end of The Brady Hoke Era. I’ll be honest, this will be […]
I have a few additional thoughts about Saturday’s win over Indiana that I want to touch upon this morning. My immediate post-game recap tends to be a stream-of-consciousness game flow effort. This has a wee bit more structure. If you need a quick refresher on Saturday’s win over Indiana, you can go here. Let’s acknowledge, again […]
Well, it wasn’t easy, but the Ohio State Buckeyes (10-1. 7-0) beat the Indiana Hoosiers (3-8, 0-7) to claim the B1G East title, 42-27 in a game that was much closer than the score indicated. In a game that surged back and forth, to the frustration of Ohio State fans, Ohio State scored two quick […]
The #8 (CFB) Buckeyes (9-1, 6-0) host the Hoosiers of Indiana (3-7, 0-6) Saturday for a 12:00 noon EST kickoff. Just for something different, this game will kickoff at noon EST rather than 8:00 PM. Ohio State scraped by Minnesota and Indiana got rolled by Rutgers this past Saturday. Overview: I’ll be honest, this will be […]
