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 […]

Who is Ohio State’s Quarterback? It doesn’t matter

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 […]

BSR Season Preview: Ranking the Class of 2013

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 […]

Vegas Odds: J.T. Barrett the Favorite to Start in 2015?

If I were a betting man, I’d keep my coin in my pocket if someone asked me to put odds on who will be Urban Meyer’s starting quarterback in 2015. The Buckeye coaching staff has a tough decision in front of them. Especially if redshirt senior Braxton Miller’s shoulder is fully healthy. That being said, […]


Athlon Sports names JT Barrett National Player of the Week

Ohio State red-shirt freshman J.T. Barrett is already gaining respect for his strong performance against the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday night. His 300 passing yards,86 yards rushing, and 5 total touchdowns were good enough for Athlon Sports to name him this week’s national freshman and player of the week. Barrett controlled the Ohio State […]


Are You Not Entertained? Penn State

Whew! That’s all I have to say after a near debacle in Happy Valley. Not sure how Ohio State lost a 17-0 lead and the momentum … well, I kind of know but J.T. Barrett has been playing so well I don’t want to throw it all on him and his pick-six. But I digress. […]


Barrett Should Be Ohio State’s QB in 2015

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer says Braxton Miller is OSU’s quarterback in 2015. I appreciate the loyalty, Coach, but I hope it’s just “coach speak.” There is no way Miller should take another snap as a quarterback for OSU — starting or otherwise. I’m not knocking the injury-prone Miller. Yes, he was a leading […]

tBBC Preview: Maryland Terrapins

The #20/#18 Buckeyes  (3-1) travel to the Atlantic Seaboard to hopefully feast on Maryland crab cakes Terrapins at College Park. MD. The Terrapins (Terps) as you all know, are newbies to the B1G. At a record of 4-1 (1-0), they lead the B1G East after the month of September. Who knew? Overview: I knew that […]

The Bright Spot

Sunday Evening Quarterback: Virginia Tech

A record crowd came out on Saturday evening to see Ohio State’s marquee non-conference matchup of the season, pitting Frank Beamer’s Hokies against the Buckeyes of Ohio State for the first time in history. For two such storied programs, that stat alone is surprising. So too, are the other records that went down on Saturday night […]

Pure Class

Sunday Evening Quarterback: Navy

Urban Meyer and Tom Herman may not be wizards, but they just might be the closest thing we’ll see anytime soon. It’s never easy playing the United States Naval Academy (see Ohio State circa 2009) and it’s even more difficult to do so on an “away” site with a Redshirt Freshman Quarterback and a brand […]


2012 Proves Buckeyes’ Reloading Capabilities

Buckeyes fans who are reeling from the Braxton Miller injury should let the 2012 season serve as a reminder to just how well the Ohio State coaching staff can adapt to the talent level, injuries, and competing at the highest level when nobody expects you to. Just because Ohio State was dealt a tough blow, doesn’t mean […]

tBBC Roundtable: Ohio State Recruiting 2013

After a momentous day for Buckeye football, and after a few frosty beverages, here’s the staff’s reflections on the epic 2013 recruiting class! Who’s the player on offense/defense who will make the biggest impact during his career at OSU? Ken: Mike Mitchell. I think he has potential to have a Spielman/Katzenmoyer type career at OSU […]

J.T. Barrett Is A Buckeye !!!

If you’re like me, you can’t wait for Saturday’s Spring Game. And, that also makes you like Texas QB J.T. Barrett, who wasted no time in becoming the tenth member of the Ohio State 2013 Recruiting Class. Who needs a Recruiting Weekend to make it official, right? The 6’2″, 205 pound QB from Rider HS […]
