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

A few days ago we participated in the ‘Tony Alford Speculation Train‘ where a lot of not-really confirmed evidence indicated that (former) Notre Dame Running Backs Coach/Recruiting Coordinator Tony Alford was offered and accepted a similar position at Ohio State. Per Ohio State’s Jerry Emif, who’s the reliable source for something like this. Below is […]

Wrapping Up: 2015 Ohio State Recruiting

Well, that was certainly a lot of fun, wasn’t it? After yesterday’s big news on the “Hey! New Buckeyes!!” front, we sat down in tBBC conference room to chat about our quick first impressions of the #Elite15. We also talked about who’s turn it was to bring doughnuts, but that’s not really relevant at this point […]

2015 NLOID: Quick Reaction

Like most/many/some of you I followed the college signings quite closely. [OK, I was contractually obligated to do so, but that isn’t the point.] This is really the only day I follow this stuff; in terms of the actual recruiting and the verbal commitment processes, I leave that to others with more interest and capability.

Prince Is King

Isaiah Prince Is A Buckeye!!!!

Offensive coordinator and line coach Ed Warriner got good news today, as a Maryland standout becomes the latest member of the 2015 recruiting class. Greenbelt Maryland’s Isaiah Prince joins the Buckeye team after a whirlwind recruiting saga that included a verbal commitment to Alabama earlier in the year, but then saw the Eleanor Roosevelt senior […]

KJHill

K.J. Hill Is A Buckeye!!!!

Getting a verbal commitment from one of the nation’s top receivers? Pretty nice.  Getting a verbal commitment from one of the nation’s top receivers who was expected to play for Bert Bielema? Freaking awesome. Particularly when that receiver has the skill set that K.J. Hill brings to the table as the latest member of the […]

tBBC Radio Hour: Signing Day Primer with Jeremy Birmingham

Signing Day is right around the corner and here at The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour, we bring you the best content we can to get you prepared for what could go down on Wednesday when members of the Class of 2015 fax in their letters of intent to various schools across the country to play football for those coaches and universities.tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunes

Ohio State is expected to finish the day with the highest rated class in the Big Ten and a top ten group of recruits across that national spectrum.

Helping us break down what to expect is Jeremy Birmingham, who is one of the if not the most respected Recruiting Analysts out there. The Eleven Warriors recruiting director helps us break down:

  • The 2015 class as a whole and how they can provide depth despite heading to a National Championship team that is loaded at nearly every position
  • Whether or not Cass Tech (MI) running back Mike Weber will stay an Ohio State commit despite a late surge from Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh
  • Where Torrance Gibson fits in this class and how high he ranks among athletes across the country and quarterback and at Wide Receiver
  • Who the “Sleeper” of this class is that could help Urban Meyer and company right away during the 2015 campaign
  • The development of the coaching staff on the recruiting scene and how Kerry Coombs has carved a recruiting road into the state of Michigan
  • How Ed Warinner has impressed recruits and their families with his ability to turn recruits into NFL lineman
  • The likelihood of Porter Gustin signing on the dotted line and faxing over his letter of Intent to Ohio State
  • If there could be a quarterback logjam down the road
  • Who Jeremy’s favorite recruits are that decided to go elsewhere for their education and to play football

Plus, our own MaliBuckeye stops by to talk about the other side of recruiting and what role education and development have in the selections that young men will be making tomorrow.

As always, thanks for listening to The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour. You can find us on iTunes, where we are always excited to hear your comments and feedback on the show. Feel free to rate and subscribe the show.
