On Friday, I took a position by position look at how the 2014 and 2016 offenses compared heading into their respective seasons. It showed the two teams were pretty similar on paper and each had their strengths. Today we will take a look at the defenses and see how they stack up against each other […]
How much more can you ask from a recruiting class that has produced five NFL players in a little over two seasons? The Ohio State Class of 2013 has already left it’s mark on Ohio State. A group that became instant leaders as youngsters during the 2014-15 season — winning the first College Football Playoff […]
Eli Apple, Ezekiel Elliott, Darron Lee, Vonn Bell, and Jalin Marshall are on their way as professional players. Yet there are still major impact players on the roster from the Class of 2013.
Clair Crawford and Joe Dexter discuss the impact of this class heading into the 2016 season.

Going into the 2016 season, there are numerous position battles the Ohio State fan base is keeping a close eye on.

Over the past three weeks, I have taken an in-depth look at each and every position for the Buckeyes going into spring practice, which is set to begin on tomorrow and culminate with the spring football game at Ohio Stadium on April 16th.

With the recruits signed, sealed, and almost delivered it is officially time to look forward to the 2016 football season. While the Buckeyes are already getting ready behind the scenes, things do not start to jump into another gear until the Buckeyes begin their spring practice on March 8th. Over the next couple of weeks, […]
No real reason to have a slights this week so I though it would be fun to see what everyone’s trick or treat has been so far in this college football season. The premise is simple, give us what they thought they were tricked by and what they have been treated or pleasantly surprised with. […]
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 […]
I honestly may as well go ahead and make the title of this every week, “Patrick thinks Dontre needs to improve!” other than that answer each week, there are a few that may surprise TBBC readership this week. Offensive tOSU Offensive MVP MDotySr – Elliott with the TD’s and big blocks that need […]
Joe Dexter and The Buckeye Battle Cry’s Patrick Jones break down what we learned after win number two on the year, the Buckeye offensive struggles and what this defense’s performance means for Ohio State’s championship run.
One of my least favorite things in the world is speculation. In most cases it leads to negativity between fans and can, in the end, divide a house when it comes to football. I thought it would be interesting to sit down and present my opinions on a few of the position battles we will […]
Back from the cruise, done with another birthday: Let’s Get Sparty! Laser Focused-Head Coach Urban Meyer held his weekly press conference Monday afternoon and exuded a new level of no nonsense, laser focused attitude. Coach Meyer had no problem in claiming that a win over Michigan State would be a “signature win” and would restore […]
Little switcheroo this week; with camp in full swing as of yesterday, here’s some notes and so forth from the start of Ohio State’s 125th Season. Inspired by Scott’s wise-acreage in our group chat this week, you’re stuck with this as your morning soundtrack. The Band Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes- The University announced on Monday that the OSUMB […]
It’s almost that time of year with only 44 days until The Ohio State Buckeyes play the Naval Academy in Baltimore. As I sat and thought about it, I realized it would be a good time to get some opinions from the fans of Ohio State and our staff here at The Buckeye Battle Cry. […]
I wanted to talk about some of the talent we have on defense and how the Buckeyes’ new defensive staff will bring the most out of this talented young roster. This will be a two part article as I look at the linebackers and defensive backs. Before I get into the staff’s new package and […]
Urban Meyer’s staff continues to win, even during the offseason. On Friday,
With the season winding down and it being a bye week, we figured it would be a good time to preview the targets for the next 3 months leading up to signing day, as well as look into our magic 8 ball for 2014. In the first part of this 2 part series we will […]
