Breaking Down the Gator Bowl

The Basics: Tuesday, January 2, 2012, 1:00 PM EST on ESPN2, from Jacksonville. Ohio State (6-6, 3-5 B1G) and Florida (6-6, 3-5 SEC). It’s really hard to believe that in the history of both programs that the 2006 National Championship game was the first ever match-up between these two teams. This one hardly qualifies as […]

Silver Bullet Points Hand Out Hardware

Today was the football team banquet; here’s who was honored: Boom Herron was named Team MVP, in spite of his being suspended for a good portion of the year. My guess is that this gives us insight into the role that he played behind the scenes as an integral part of the team. Captain, My […]

You Are Not Entertained: The Game

Well, let’s try to put a bow on this, shall we? Silk purse, sow’s ear and all that… Actually, there’s a lot to be positive about looking back at the team’s efforts against TTUN- and some things that definitely need attention. Eric Defensive Heart.

Scarlet and Gray Q&A – Week Nine

Every player has that defining moment in their career. It is that moment where a player seizes the moment and changes the course of a game, a season, or even a career. Whether it was Joe Germaine’s last minute drive in the Rose Bowl, Eddie George against Notre Dame in the ‘Shoe, or Troy Smith […]

Silver Bullet Points Heads To Brown County

Time for the wrap up of college football news, updates from Coach Fickell’s Tuesday press conference and other notes from college football Buckeye 411 Captain, My Captain- Since it’s been a year of mystery in this department, why not make things even more interesting by not naming captains thus far in the week. As far […]

Football Midseason Report Card

Well Buckeye fans, we are halfway home to the end of the 2011 season. Standing at 4-3 overall and 1-2 in the B1G, this year has been some dizzying highs (winning the Sugar Bowl) and far too many lowest of lows. The real question is where the Ohio State Buckeyes grade out for the first […]

Scarlet and Gray Q&A – Week Seven

If the great Charles Dickens were looking to write a sequel to “A Tale of Two Cities,” Luke Fickell and the Ohio State Buckeyes might want to add “A Tales of Two Halves” to the realm of possibilities. The Buckeyes reversed their offensive fortunes of a week ago against Michigan State, and the scarlet and […]

Silver Bullet Points Protects Honu

Notes from Tuesday’s Ohio State press conference and around the realm of college sports. No soundtrack today, but we’re totally shopping for a El Camino. Buckeye 411 Injury update: Braxton practiced, and by all reports looked “fine”, although he took it easy after the initial burst. Coaches will continue to monitor, but according to the […]

DeVier Posey Suspended Additional Five Games

If it’s Friday, it means that it’s time for more bad news. Devier Posey has been suspended an additional five games by the NCAA for receiving $720 in payment for hours not worked, in addition to “free golf”.  Essentially, this means that his senior season will consist of the games against Penn State and Michigan… […]

Scarlet and Gray Q&A – Week Six

If there was ever a need for a demonstration of Murphy’s Law, Ohio State’s offense against Michigan State might be an apt tool to use. Everything that could go wrong for the Buckeyes did last Saturday when the scarlet and gray had possession of the football. Nothing went right, and any glimmer of hope that […]

Herron, Hall, Posey Declared Inelligible Against Nebraska

Here’s the long and short of it, as far as we know: During the investigation into former Ohio State Booster Bobby DiGeronimo’s connection with the charity event that saw several Buckeyes suspended earlier this season, the University discovered that there were student athletes who were working for his company, and that this employment hadn’t been […]

Buckeye Suspension Update: Five Across The Board

This afternoon, the NCAA finished their review of the appeal of the five game suspension for the student athletes at the beginning of the 2011 season. Terelle Pryor, Dan Herron, Devier Posey, Mike Adams, and Solomon Thomas were sanctioned for selling gear and award merchandise in exchange for tatoos and/or money in December 2010; the […]

Promises Kept: No Juniors Declare for NFL Draft

Back around Christmastime, when the “Tattoo-gate” situation emerged, one of the issues that most people thought once the suspensions had been deferred to 2011 was “They’ll all go pro and there won’t be any punishments at all”. So great was this concern that Coach Tressel was asked directly about it during his pre-Sugar Bowl press […]
