Braxton Miller Shines at Senior Bowl Practice

Joe Dexter and Clair Crawford discuss the reaction of scouts and media members that watched the North Team at Tuesday’s opening scouting process.

They also explain why Braxton Miller and Adolphus Washington stuck out more than the other Buckeyes in Mobile, Alabama.

Braxton Miller, Thanks for Being One of Us

There’s a reason that Braxton Miller could go down as the most cherished Buckeye since Archie Griffin. The former quarterback turned wide receiver has done amazing things on the field. He’s transcended the Ohio State record books by being one of the most dynamic players to ever grace the college football gridiron. He took our […]

Even though tweeting at the punter is a bad idea, is making a T that pokes fun at the kid in the stands any different?

What Do You Want To See? Michigan

It’s time. It’s The Game. Nothing else matters. If OSU wins one game all year, it must be this one. If OSU loses one game all year, it must NOT be this one. The Buckeyes appear to be in a little bit of dysfunction with at least one player criticizing the play calling publicly and […]

Recap: Sparty stuns Buckeyes 17-14

Unless we have Armageddon there will be a new college football national champion. Michael Geiger’s 41-yard field goal as time expired gave No. 9 Michigan State a 17-14 win over No. 3 Ohio State, causing a shakeup in the College Football Playoff situation. When the new rankings are announced, the defending national champion Buckeyes will likely […]

Are You Not Entertained? Illinois

(Urban wants to you be entertained, but keep the noise level down) It’s a win. That’s what it’s all about. I could sit here and talk about the eye test, the need to pound pansies and how the offense allegedly is not what it was last year. But no. I’m going to avoid the superlatives […]

Game Preview: Ohio State @ Illinois

Ohio State Buckeyes @ Illinois Fighting Illini — Memorial Stadium Saturday 12:00 PM ET November football is what separates the contenders from the pretenders of college football.  It’s why Ohio State has been in the hunt for a championship since the start of the 2013 season. This point of the season is the valley of no return. It’s […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State Versus Rutgers

JT “Just Touch Downs”(to quote my wife) Barrett was the cure for what ails the Buckeye offense. Was there ever really any doubt as to the effectiveness of his type of play? The only downside to his type of play may be Ezekiel’s early production in games, but really it takes the offense time to […]

What Do You Want To See? Rutgers

Welcome back, J.T. Like I did, many Ohio State football fans rejoiced when Coach Urban Meyer announced that J.T. Barrett would start at Rutgers Saturday night. Nothing against previous starter Cardale Jones, but the offense seemed to flow better and have that rhythm that it had much of last year when Barrett was putting up […]

TBBC Awards: Ohio State vs. Penn State

Here are this week’s awards for The Buckeye Battle Cry staff, after a 38-10 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions. Offensive tOSU Offensive MVP MDotySr –  JT. Barrett played his arse off and maybe into a new starter! Joe – J.T. Barrett might have played his most efficient game of his career. That’s saying […]

Are You Not Entertained? Maryland

Well, well, well. Welcome back offense. Where’d ya go defense? Seems to be the continuing saga of the Buckeyes football season. Eventually both sides are going to start playing complete games at the same time. When that happens, watch out. In reality, the defense needs to stop giving up the big play. It’s OK to […]

Are You Not Entertained? Indiana

Just waiting for Ohio State’s complete team to show up. When the offense is clicking, the defense forgets how to play. When the defense is stingy, the offense stinks. Look at the Indiana game. The defense held the Hoosiers to 10 points in the first half but the OSU offense mustered six points. In the […]

OK folks. This is getting serious now. Enough excuses. Time to start playing ball. The natives are getting restless and the playoff committee is going to start wondering. Excuse me for being blunt. Buckeyes, quit the crap. Get your heads out and start playing like a defending champion. That’s all I want to see. What […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Back to basics for Ohio State

Another week and another win, yet the questions are mounting. In a season that was supposed to be laughable and a sort of warmup for late November heroics and playoff dreams, the ship has drifted off course and the natives are restless. We’ve got some things to discuss, so let’s not waste any more time. […]

Are You Not Entertained? Northern Illinois

This is beginning to sound like a broken record. Or maybe a bad country song. I think it’s time for OSU to decide on a QB and stick with that person as long as it’s J.T. Barrett. No offense to Cardale Jones (or Cardell as some broadcasters say) but Barrett really had the offense in […]

What Do You Want To See? Northern Illinois

Are we done debating about Ohio State’s perceived offensive struggle? There is no struggle if you ask me. Short week. Emotional win. First game back with some of the regulars. Not making excuses. Just being realistic. Get it? Got it? Good. Let’s move on. Or channeling my inner Yoda … on let’s move. I think […]

Are You Not Entertained? Hawaii

I’m just glad Virginia Tech/Hawaii week is over. The NCAA really needs to take a long hard look at what it did to OSU and make sure no team ever has to play two games in a week. Credit Hawaii for playing hard, but on a short week it was obviously tough to get up […]

Ohio State Shakes off Rust and Hawaii 38-0

After sitting idle for eight months, Ohio Stadium finally saw some gridiron action today. Hawaii traveled over nine thousand miles for the opportunity to play the Buckeyes, and gave Ohio State a surprisingly challenging dogfight for it. The Buckeyes only managed to pull away in the final quarter when they fully gained control of both […]
