2nd Thoughts: Fiesta Bowl

(I think that Urban is addressing you) Well, that was satisfying, wasn’t it? The Buckeyes made good use of their bowl-prep time (Adolphus Washington, excepted) to keep their offense well-oiled. After scoring over 40 points against Michigan, Ohio State did it again in their 44-28 defeat of Notre Dame. The last time these teams played, […]

2nd Thoughts: OSU vs Illinois

It turned out to be a steady-as-she goes win for Ohio State on Saturday, as they beat Illinois 28-3. J.T. Barrett was again took the snaps, but make no mistake, this is Ezekiel Elliott’s offense. So, here we go… Special Teams It was a bit of a “yawner” day for the special teams. The return game […]

Game Preview: Ohio State @ Illinois

Ohio State Buckeyes @ Illinois Fighting Illini — Memorial Stadium Saturday 12:00 PM ET November football is what separates the contenders from the pretenders of college football.  It’s why Ohio State has been in the hunt for a championship since the start of the 2013 season.

Making Sense Of The J.T. Barrett Chaos

What a way to wake up on a Saturday morning that seemed like the start of an uneventful weekend based on The Ohio State University’s Football bye-week. Heading for bed Friday night – this could and would have never been imagined. We all know of the unfortunate news to which I am addressing. J.T. Barrett […]

J.T. Barrett Suspended For Minnesota Game

We’ve come to dread off-weeks for a good reason. The bugaboo of “college football players with too much time on their hands this week” struck again overnight as J.T. Barrett was cited early Saturday morning for driving OVI (Operating a Vehicle under the Influence) by Columbus police. Per Doug Lesmerises at; According to the report, […]

What Do You Want To See? Rutgers

Welcome back, J.T. Like I did, many Ohio State football fans rejoiced when Coach Urban Meyer announced that J.T. Barrett would start at Rutgers Saturday night. Nothing against previous starter Cardale Jones, but the offense seemed to flow better and have that rhythm that it had much of last year when Barrett was putting up […]

It’s Time to Support Cardale Jones

It all started without much fanfare in February 2011 when a three-star recruit signed a letter of intent to play football in his home state of Ohio. Cardale Jones was 6’6” and only 215 pounds and had academic issues which scared away many schools. Jones had an offer to go to Toledo where he would […]

Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Well, well, well. Lookie at what he have he-eah. A real quarterback controversy. J.T. Barrett comes in to relieve an ineffective Cardale Jones and he sparks the offense, giving it the pace and flow it had much of last season as OSU thrashed Penn State. Coach Urban Meyer said he would take a look at […]

Are You Not Entertained? Western Michigan

Welcome back Buckeyes. Sort of. The big-play offense we all have been longing for made a reappearance Saturday as Ohio State throttled Western Michigan. Three of OSU’s four offensive touchdowns were at least 37 yards. The offense had 223 on the ground and 288 in the air. Good balance. I still would like to see […]

Are You Not Entertained? Northern Illinois

This is beginning to sound like a broken record. Or maybe a bad country song. I think it’s time for OSU to decide on a QB and stick with that person as long as it’s J.T. Barrett. No offense to Cardale Jones (or Cardell as some broadcasters say) but Barrett really had the offense in […]

What Do You Want To see? VaTech

It’s the game for which Buckeye fans have been waiting. Ohio State gets a chance to avenge its only loss from last season Monday when the Buckeyes visit Blacksburg and a road test against Virginia Tech. Just wondering … if someone at that school gets arrested do they get sent to the Hokie Pokey? But […]

First depth chart released

Urban Meyer must like the word “or.” The Buckeyes first depth chart was released a bit ago and that small, tiny 2-letter word appears 10 times on the two deep offense, defense and specialist charts. Of course it sticks out at the most prestigious position … quarterback. Meyer has vowed not to release whether J.T. […]

Buckeye Sports Radio: A Tale of Two Quarterbacks

The Ohio State Buckeyes have an interesting situation on their hands. Two quarterbacks, that have shown their talents on the field in very different ways, are battling for the starting nod. Head Coach Urban Meyer has made it clear that the fans and media will not be notified if J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones is […]
