Silver Bullets Reloaded: Defensive Backs

  After losing three starters from last season, one would think the secondary would be in rebuilding mode at camp. Like the rest of the defense, that has not been the case at all. The starters (with one small exception) have been set from day one. Continuity in the secondary is important, and the Buckeyes […]

Meet The Buckeyes: 2011 Media Day Photos

Today was the media and family day in the Horseshoe, and as always Josh Winslow brings us the best photos from the event. While the full gallery is great, here are some photos that really stood out for us:

Things To Get Excited About – Opening Kickoff is on the Way

  It has been a long and arduous off season for Buckeye Nation. The anticipation and anxiety surrounding the August 12th NCAA hearings alone are enough to put someone on edge. How severely will the NCAA ultimately punish Ohio State for its transgressions? We can only speculate and hope for the best. Next up was […]

Spring Game: Players to Watch on Offense

  The Buckeyes need to fill some pretty big holes on offense this year thanks to graduations and compounded by suspensions. Luckily, Ohio State always has ultra talented players waiting in the wings to show what they’ve got. As a fan, you can only hope that one or more of these players can make a […]

Spring Game Primer

With spring practice well underway and the spring game quickly approaching, it is time to move from “way too early looks” at each position into some more informed analysis based on practice reports. [Note: I apologize for not getting to the defensive backs in my “way too early looks”.] This offseason has been a tumultuous […]

Way Too Early Look: 2011 Receivers

Let’s cut right to the chase, Ohio State’s receiving corps will be extremely raw and inexperienced in 2011. If losing Dane Sanzenbacher (55 receptions, 948 yards, 11 TDs) to graduation weren’t enough, the loss of Devier Posey (53 receptions, 848 yards, 7 TDs) to suspension leaves exactly two scholarship players with even the slightest amount of […]

Silver Bullet Points Channels Carl Spackler

Buckeye 411 Injury Report-Christian Bryant’s still in the hospital, but due home today or tomorrow (according to reports). Will be off the field for a long while, most likely the rest of the season. Pittsburgh will be missing action through the Spring, while Bell and Homan may be back after the BYE week. The Donnie […]

Thoughts from the Pressbox

We here at the Buckeye Battle Cry have been working hard at improving ourselves week after week.  The holy grail, of course, is to become recognized by our favorite University as a legitimate news organization. This season, we got lucky. Ohio State rewarded us with press passes to the Ohio University game (which Jim attended) […]

Buckeyes Beat Down Purdue 49-0

The Buckeyes came back to Ohio Stadium looking for a little bit of payback and they got it in a big way.  The Boilermakers were completely outmatched, falling to the Buckeyes 49-0 in the Bucks first shutout of the year.  Pryor finished the game with 16/22 with 270 yards 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on […]

Ohio State Blows Away Ohio U 43-7

The Ohio Bobcats rolled into Columbus today to take on the Buckeyes and hopefully challenge them the same way that they did back in 2008.  The Buckeyes weren’t having any of it as they raced out to a 43-0 lead before giving up a late touchdown in trash time to end the game with the […]

Jersey Scrimmage Notes

Today’s Ohio State’s jersey scrimmage was won by the offense, but the real news continues to be the development of the team in preparation for the season’s start. T. Wash snagged the only TD of the game on a 25 yard pass from Pryor. Taurian is looking strong thus far, but did have a few […]
