Who is Ohio State’s Quarterback? It doesn’t matter

One of the most-debated topics during the college football off-season is the quarterback situation at Ohio State. Who’s it going to be? Will two-time B1G Offensive Player of the Year Braxton Miller regain his starting position after recovering from shoulder surgery? Will last year’s starter, J.T. Barrett, return under center after a breakout season that […]

Well, according to the Ohio State SID, there are four Buckeyes on the ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. The nominees and my remembrances of them, below: Keith Byars: I thought he was an unusual looking running back; top-heavy body with tiny feet… But, oh my god, could he play! Keith was […]

NFL Draft Preview, Darryl Baldwin

I want to take a brief look at Darryl Baldwin, the Buckeye starting right offensive tackle this Championship season. Although signed as a highly rated (All-Ohio) high school defensive tackle, and getting some spot time at as a reserve in 2011, Darryl was enlisted to move to the offensive side of the ball in 2012.

Further Thoughts on Tony Alford.. They’re All Good

Well, well. It’s “officially” official; Ohio State has a new running back coach who also has some recruiting chops.  The agreement of Coach Tony Alford to move from (similar responsibilities) at Notre Dame to Ohio State is a solid hire.  Jerry Emig confirmed what we’d suspected, for a few days, that Urban Meyer intended to […]

Ohio State (Officially) Gets Their Man: Tony Alford On Board as Running Backs Coach

2015 NLOID: Quick Reaction

OSU vs Oregon: That Was Then, This Is Now

Yes, I think we’re all familiar with the caveat of “Past results do not guarantee future performance”. Or we should be. We went through pre-game chatter 5 year ago prior to the 2010 Rose Bowl between Ohio State and Oregon. Of course, it was very pronounced then, since the media was pumping this as New […]

Buckeyes, ‘Bama, And Bowl Thoughts

Well, well, well. Ohio State beat Alabama and is now playing for the National Championship against Oregon. There has been plenty of digital ink spilled after this game, so I’ll hold my comments to, not quite a minimum, but far less than I usually do. But I will compensate with some thoughts about the 2014-2015 […]
