Shots From The 'Shoe: Buffalo

We’re lucky to have several staffers who have either gameday assignments at Ohio Stadium or season tickets. After each home game, we’ll get you some quick thoughts “from the cheap seats”. As I awoke around 3:30am Saturday morning, my excitement for what the day held overtook my desire and need to go back to sleep. […]

Scripted Takes: Ohio State -vs- Cal

Jason joins us again with another review of the roller coaster that was this week’s game: Have you caught your breath? Did you wake up this morning feeling a little better about yesterday’s Buckeye win? I hope so, because despite a myriad of defensive issues and an offense that at times was stuck in the […]

Monday Morning Commentary – Media Access

There are numerous times in the life of a blogger that you just wish you had the opportunity to cover a football game like the local media in Columbus. Let’s face it, for the most part, those of us who are online entities just do not have the chances that the O-Zone does. They have […]

And Your 2012 Ohio State Captains Are…

… John Simon, Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino, Garrett Goebel, and Jordan Hall After a 2011 season of “rotating captains” and other nonsense, coupled with a spring and fall camp that focused on competition and excellence, it’s great to see that the Buckeyes have chosen five of their team who have emerged as leaders for this […]

Silver Bullet Points: Fall Practice- 8.6.12

Another quick update on the state of Ohio State football, following media access on Monday. Huge thanks to our friend Josh Winslow for the photos! Injury Updates- Jacoby Boren practiced today, but no contact. Jordan Hall and Nate Williams were also present, but doing work on the side of the field. Coach Meyer commented that […]

Silver Bullets Reloaded: Defensive Line

  After learning that I have viewed open practices and the jersey scrimmage, many people ask me what I think about the Buckeyes . Well, being that I write for this website, I thought I would take all of the thoughts that I share with various people and put them down for all of our […]

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 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 Defensive Line

Ohio State has been spoiled by some outstanding play in the defensive trenches recently. Whether you look at the incredible depth and experience of the 2009 group or the individual performance of Cameron Heyward and Dexter Larimore in 2010, the defensive line has been one of the primary sources of success for Buckeyes. Needless to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Youth Movement in the Trenches

There are a lot of things to get excited about for the upcoming season. Returning starters, award candidates, dominating lineman, dynamic receivers,  depth at running back, hard hitting linebackers, the most experienced offensive line in years… take your pick. Whatever you want to talk about in the last days before kickoff, there is probably something […]

Where Things Stand: D-Line Going Bowling

I haven’t been able to do a position update in a few weeks due to various school obligations, but fall quarter at OSU wraps up shortly and before too long I will have plenty of free time to contemplate all things scarlet and gray heading into the new year. It seems that some Ohio State […]

Diaries From The Trenches: Defensive Tackle

(Bumped to the top of the page by Jeff – this deserves more exposure) After spending two posts (which are already outdated a week later) going over the offensive line, it is time to move back to the defensive side of the ball. In this post I will look at the defensive tackles. Very quickly, I […]
