Rumblin, Stumblin, Bumblin: State Penn Eve

As the Buckeyes roll down the stretch and most of America believes they ave the easiest path to go undefeated, the rest believes they wont be in the title game because of the ease of that schedule. The fact still remains that all this team needs to do is win and not pay any attention to […]

Silver Bullet Points Is Aware Of The Issue

This week, Ohio State faces a Purdue coach that’s undefeated* against them, and seeks to rebound from a horrible defensive showing at Indiana.  So, yeah- our soundtrack is something that should be harped on, even if it seems a little paranoid. Buckeye 411 Think Pink- Well, I guess this is a thing now, as this […]

The Buckeyes' Defense Must Answer the Bell

On Saturday, Ohio State will do something it has not done yet in the 2012 season–play a game away from Ohio Stadium. The No. 14 Buckeyes will travel to East Lansing for a date with the No. 20 Michigan State Spartans and if OSU plays like it has in its previous three games, the Buckeyes […]

Grading Ohio State's Depth Chart: Defense

As you may know, Ohio State was nice enough to release a post spring practice two-deep for us to over-analyze during the long summer months as we anxiously await the beginning of  fall camp. Although I like to look at the depth chart every summer (hey, it’s something to do), this year has added significance […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Linebackers

Ohio State reloaded at linebacker in the 2012 class with a haul consisting of Josh Perry, Luke Roberts, David Perkins, Camren Williams, and Jamal Marcus. I also like to throw RS freshman Connor Crowell into that group since a leg injury prevented him from practicing last year as a part of the 2011 class. Despite […]

Ohio State Spring Preview – Defense

Ohio State’s defense has been one of the most consistently excellent units in college football over the last decade. Sadly, the 2011 season was a major bump in the road for the defense and the team. Needless to say, the Silver Bullets will be looking to get back on track in Urban Meyer’s first year […]

Grading Ohio State's 2012 Recruiting Class: Defense

With the class all but over, and signing day come and gone, we take a look at the defensive portion of Ohio State’s 2012 class. Defensive Line (4) A+ Not enough can be said about how Meyer came in and loaded up at the defensive line.  While his offensive line and linebacker recruiting were impressive as well, […]

Gator Bowl – Defense Will Decide Outcome

One of those cliche’ phrases that seems to come true more times than not is that “defense wins championships”. It is true that most of the elite teams do what they do the defensive way and that if you choose to dictate what the opponents offense can and will do, you will win. The Buckeyes […]

Everett Withers to join Ohio State defensive Staff

Long rumored to be in the works, this morning it has been confirmed that Everett Withers will join Meyer’s defensive staff at Ohio State. Withers brings a long history (including at the NFL level) coaching the secondary that will complement Fickell’s (and Vrabel’s) experience with the linemen and linebackers nicely. The Buckeyes could even be looking […]

Regular Season Review: Defensive Line

In 2009, the strength the Buckeyes was without a doubt the defensive line. They were talented, they were deep, and they were experienced. Those qualities helped Ohio State  shut down the high powered, high paced Oregon offensive attack in the Rose Bowl. It was a fitting end to a great year for the line. At […]

Regular Season Review: Defensive Backs

No position went through more turmoil in 2010 than the defensive backs. They endured injuries- lots and lots of injuries, position changes, schematic changes, bad stretches in games, criticism from fans, and everything in between. Through it all, however, the secondary continued to play remarkably well. In fact, some fans might be surprised at just […]

Regular Season Review: Linebackers

Strong linebacker play has been a trademark of Ohio State football for decades. While another school may have been given the title ‘Linebacker U’, few teams have matched the consistent excellence Buckeyes have brought to the position. At the start of the season, Ohio State had two sure things at linebacker in Ross Homan and […]

The Evolution of Ohio State's Defense

Ohio State’s defense has consistently been one of the best in the country during Tressel’s tenure as head coach. And thank goodness for that.  Field position, solid special teams play, and a suffocating D have crushed opponents and earned Ohio State the W time after time. Even in years when the offensive fire power is… […]
