Silver Bullet Points Uses The Force

Here’s your mid-week morning menudo of links and love Buckeye 411 remarked that giving photos away to parents and/or players would actually be an NCAA violation (providing goods and services not at market value would be an improper benefit). As someone who trusts and values Brandon and Jim’s word and work, you’ve got to wonder […]

Silver Bullets Reloaded: Linebackers

  After reviewing the defensive line yesterday, we move next to the linebackers. A position that has always been solid for the Silver Bullets regardless of graduations, replacing two starters from 2010 should not prevent this year’s group from being solid to spectacular once again.

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.

However, I’m not going to do that.  I’ve got frustrations, and you’ll get a chance to read them, but I wanted to set out some foundational items first. We rarely […]

Why is Pryor playing in the Sugar Bowl?

The stink from this is going to be on the airwaves for months to come. Five Buckeyes selling their championship gear to earn money – albeit to help their parents out – are allowed to play in a big bowl game and serve their suspensions the next year. The argument is going to go something […]

Regular Season Review: Linebackers

Strong linebacker play has been a trademark of Ohio State football for decades. While another school may have been given the title ‘Linebacker U’, few teams have matched the consistent excellence Buckeyes have brought to the position. At the start of the season, Ohio State had two sure things at linebacker in Ross Homan and […]
