Silver Bullet Points Wishes It Were A SEAL

Lots of things to catch up on… Some of this has been around for a bit, but we’re not all edgy and trendy and stuff. The Story Of The Week Although it’s not really sports related, the capture/death of Osama Bin Laden did have some ripples throughout Buckeye nation and the sports world, particularly on […]

Regular Season Review: Defensive Backs

No position went through more turmoil in 2010 than the defensive backs. They endured injuries- lots and lots of injuries, position changes, schematic changes, bad stretches in games, criticism from fans, and everything in between. Through it all, however, the secondary continued to play remarkably well. In fact, some fans might be surprised at just […]

Silver Bullet Points Looks Ahead

No press conference this week, but we do have Tress’ thoughts from after The Game and so forth Buckeye 411 Award Winners- Congrats to the members of the Ohio State team who were honored with All Big Ten accolades by the conference’s coaches. The Buckeyes led the conference with ten winners, including first team Boom […]

Silver Bullet Points Has One Purpose

One day late on this- sorry, I forgot that the TressPress was Monday during The Game week. Buckeye 411 Injury Report-In spite of Terrelle’s “dinged wing” motions in the Iowa Game, there’s nothing to report. Rumors that CB2 will be back, or that Boom has a gimpy wheel were not addressed. Ty Moeller? Still out. […]

Silver Bullet Points- Beginning of the Big T1e1n’s End

Buckeye 411 Injury Report- Dorian Bell and Travis Howard should be back this week, and Chimdi Chekwa is expected to go on Saturday, even though he’s been hampered by back spasms and so forth.  Jake Stoneburner is still questionable; the high ankle sprain won’t be fully diagnosed until later in the week. Remember when the […]

Buckeyes take out 'Canes 36-24

It was one amazing football game as the Buckeyes faced off today in the Horseshoe with the Hurricanes of Miami (FL) for the first time since their National Championship battle in January of 2003.  The game had been massively anticipated since it’s announcement several years ago and it didn’t disappoint.  Terrelle Pryor guided the Buckeyes […]

Hines Coming Down the Homestretch…

We are finally a week away from kickoff.  I know that all of you have been waiting for this since last year’s Rose Bowl Victory. The countdown to watch us stomp Marshall continues with one of the most famous numbers in OSU history that is not retired. Teddy Ginn, Joey Galloway, and Corny Greene are […]

Fall Practice Rundown

Fall camp always seems to produce the juiciest news of the year and this year has been no different.  For the next couple weeks I will be scouring the Buckeye-sphere for all the interesting tidbits to share. So far there has been almost nothing but good news coming out of the WHAC.  Obviously the loss […]

Spring Learnings: Defensive Backs

The loss of multi-year starters Kurt Coleman and Anderson Russell at safety combined with a spring game featuring a secondary that looked lost at times gives Ohio State fans the perfect opportunity to be concerned about something. During a summer with very few question marks on offense or defense, the secondary will certainly be a […]

Safeties: Week 6

This week I am going back to the safeties to take a look at how things shook out. Since there are only two positions to look at, this should be fairly brief. In my preseason breakdown, I predicted that we would be very good at safety this year, and for the most part I think […]

Kurt Coleman suspended for Indiana game

This comes as no real shock to most of us….Safety Kurt Coleman was suspended today by the Big Ten for a late/over-aggressive hit against Illinois on Saturday afternoon. He will miss the Indiana game as a result, and Anderson Russell will get the start opposite Jermale Hines.  We have depth in the secondary, so this […]

Defensive Backs

For the last installment of my position breakdown series, I will look at the defensive backfield. I have good news and I have bad news. The bad news is that All-American (and arguably the best CB in the nation last year) Malcolm Jenkins is gone and “starter” Donald Washington is also gone (he was in the […]
