Freshmen Check-In Recap and Rumblings

Update 2: video of the event after the jump.

Update: some of Josh Winslow’s photos uploaded after the jump, with a link to his entire gallery.

Ohio State’s 2011 freshmen reported for fall camp this afternoon. I was fortunate enough to be on location to “cover” the event.

If you missed it earlier in the week, make sure to check out theOzone.net’s great coverage of Wednesday’s media introduction to the incoming freshman, who all gave a brief statement and answered a few questions.

Unfortunately, the biggest news from the check-in this afternoon was how brief it was. The players arrived all at once on a bus, meaning that the ‘event’ lasted about five minutes.

Tomorrow the upper classmen will arrive individually by car over a more extended period of time, so hopefully there will be some more to cover.

As it is, there are a few noteworthy things from today, so let’s get right to it:

  • There were 22 scholarship freshmen and 2 invited walk-ons reporting today. The 22 scholarship players did not include Conner Crowell (surgery) and Cardale Jones (prep school). Read More

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 of Duron Carter plus the confusion regarding TE Nic DiLillo’s situation stings a little, but everything else has been overwhelmingly positive thus far.  Let’s take a look.

Offense

  • Mike Adams and Andrew Miller are continuing their battle for the starting Left Tackle spot.  The positive spin on this is that we have 2 interchangeable players at the position in case of injuries or exhaustion.  The negative spin is that neither player has displayed enough to put them over top of the other.  The rest of the line goes LG: Justin Boren, C: Mike Brewster, RG: Bryant Browning, RT: JB Shugarts.  Surprising, right?
  • The offensive line is (hopefully) starting to look better than it has since before the 2006 (and perhaps earlier) season.  That may have something to do with the experienced, talented blood we now have on the line; it may also have to do with having to defend beasts like Cameron Heyward, Nathan Williams, and their ilk on a daily basis in practice.  All we know, though, is that the offense was able to move the ball effectively during practice and seemed to give Pryor plenty of time in the pocket to find open receivers.

Four More Years

Written August 9th, 2010 by MaliBuckeye

Well, maybe not “more”, but it’s interesting that Terrelle offered up this gem-

I want to leave a legacy here. That’s my goal. That’s why I’ll be here for four years.

Certainly, it’s unrealistic to think that he might change his mind should this season be a breakout for him, but it’s exciting nonetheless to hear that he’s thinking about things like “legacy”.

Media Day 2010

Written August 9th, 2010 by MaliBuckeye

Today was open practice and media day for the 2010 edition of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Dispatch’s Ken Gordon has the updates from camp, including insights on some of the younger player seeing some action:

…it was more interesting to see who was filling up the second-team spots. That gives you a clue which players are emerging as key backups.

To that end, the second team offensive line was Marcus Hall at left tackle, Sam Longo at left guard, Corey Linsley at center, Jack Mewhort at right guard and Josh Kerr at right tackle.

The second-team defense went like this:

DE: Melvin Fellows, Solomon Thomas
DT: Garrett Goebel, Adam Bellamy
LB: Andrew Sweat, Dorian Bell, Storm Klein
CB: Travis Howard, Donnie Evege
S: Aaron Gant, C.J. Barnett

Following practice was media day- as always, Josh Winslow has the photos nailed down:

Tyler Moeller

So great to see Tyler in the Scarlet and Gray again… what a difference a year makes.

I’m not really sure what’s happening here… although I’m pretty confident there’s some retracting going on.
