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 […]
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. This point of the season is the valley of no return. It’s […]
Clair Crawford and Joe Dexter share their thoughts on the J.T. Barrett situation from last weekend and take a closer look at how it could affect the Buckeyes from here on out.
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 […]
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 Cleveland.com; According to the report, […]
Hello everyone and welcome to my full review of Ohio State’s trip to New Jersey to take on Rutgers. Last night J.T. Barrett made his 1st start of the year on the road against Rutgers. And what a start it was. This is how Ohio State was suppose to look all year. I wanted to […]
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 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 […]
Joe Dexter and Clair Crawford take a closer look at the decision making behind who will start for Ohio State on Saturday and behind what circumstances Urban Meyer would call upon Cardale Jones over J.T. Barrett.
Clair Crawford and Joe Dexter break down Ohio State’s commitment to the Zone Read offense with J.T. Barrett under center and how it gives efficiency in the Ohio State offense a whole new definition.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
What is up Buckeye Nation? You know what’s great about today? It’s the weekend! A bonus? Another edition of The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour as Clair Crawford and Joe Dexter return to Buckeye Sports Radio to spill our opinion on the latest happenings around Buckeye Nation. Stuff did happen lately right? To start things […]
One of the most-debated topics during the college football off-season is the quarterback situation at Ohio State. Who’s it going to be? Will two-time B1G Offensive Player of the Year Braxton Miller regain his starting position after recovering from shoulder surgery? Will last year’s starter, J.T. Barrett, return under center after a breakout season that […]
Can you imagine where the Buckeyes would of ended up last season without the likes of Ezekiel Elliott, J.T. Barrett, Darron Lee, Joey Bosa, and the many other contributors from the Class of 2013? When Urban Meyer took the job at Ohio State, it was clear that despite winning games, the former Florida Gator head […]
