Should Coaches Be Allowed To Leave Their Programs So Easily?

On New Year’s Eve, Penn State lost their head coach to the NFL. Bill O’Brien, who took on the enormous task of manning a wounded Lions program two years ago, left the college game for the NFL. He will now lead the Houston Texans, another franchise that needs rebuilding (but that’s another story for another […]

Weekend Wonderings

Welcome to this week’s latest edition of Weekend Wonderings. Take a minute, come in from shoveling the snow, grab a beverage and let’s wade into this. The James/Wexner First, here’s a bit of good research news that involves The James: (Reuters) – A closely watched leukemia drug developed by Johnson & Johnson and Pharmacyclics Inc […]

The Week That Were: 11.17.12

We’re going to do things just a little bit differently this week, given all of the amazing news and events that happened this past weekend. So, this will be part Silver Bullet Points, part Monday Morning Commentary, and the usual chunk of random observations from Saturday’s events in the world of college football.  Here’s something […]

Bill Sheridan Is A Buckeye!

A bit of a departure from the usual “welcome to Columbus” news that we’ve had hereabout over the past month, as Ohio State is reporting that former Miami Dolphins linebackers coach Bill Sheridan has been hired to fill the open defensive coaching position with Coach Meyer’s staff. Sheridan, a Detroit native who played linebacker at […]

B1G Has High Hopes For Urban Too

It’s amazing that the euphoria I have experienced is still going strong. When Urban Meyer was hired, it seemed like there was a tremendous burden lifted from the collective back of Buckeye Nation. There weren’t any more nagging doubts. There was no more fear of a football nuclear winter that was going to lay waste […]

Warinner and Hinton are (finally, officially) Buckeyes!

Ohio State Gets Defensive; Formally Adds Withers and Vrabel to Staff

In an announcement today that surprised no one, Urban Meyer has added former North Carolina interim head coach Everett Withers to the Buckeye Coaching Staff as Assistant Head Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator (with Luke Fickell). Withers, who inherited the TarHeels after the tumult from this summer, has a legacy as a defensive backs guru, having […]

Like A Runaway Cattle Stampede

I have a lot of respect for the University of Texas. Solid program, great fans, and three classic games with the Buckeyes over the last half decade or so. When Ohio athletes like Jordan Hicks choose to go to Austin instead of Texas, I understand and wish them well, even if begrudgingly so. That being […]

Silver Bullet Points Gets Into The Holiday Spirit

It’s a bit quiet in Columbus… not a creature was stirring, as it were. Buckeye 411 Post Season Hardware: Terrelle Pryor is a finalist for the Chicago Tribune’s Silver Football Award You look familiar, somehow… Jim Tressel was not sad to see Mallet transfer, and now faces him at the “prime of his career”. Post […]
