Raekwon McMillan Is A Buckeye!!!!

Christmas comes a bit early, as Santa brings Ohio State an important recruit in a position of need. Georgia inside linebacker Raekwon McMillan became the latest member of the Ohio State Class of 2014, choosing the Buckeyes in a ceremony at his High School on Monday afternoon. McMillan has been a priority for the Buckeyes […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Eyes On

2013 is here, I hope everyone rang in the New Year safe and sound but still had a lot of fun! With a new year brings the opportunity to look forward to what we are expecting and would like to see at this time next year. Let’s rumble! No drop off on the d-line For […]

Alex Anzalone Is A Buckeye!!!

Sorry to be a bit late on this one… we were busy celebrating the Buckeye Spring Game victory/grieving the Buckeye Spring Game loss. As you can imagine, beverages were involved in both scenarios. Anywho- Since Buckeye Hoops Nation grew by one today, it only made sense that the Football team bring one into the fold […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Linebackers

Ohio State reloaded at linebacker in the 2012 class with a haul consisting of Josh Perry, Luke Roberts, David Perkins, Camren Williams, and Jamal Marcus. I also like to throw RS freshman Connor Crowell into that group since a leg injury prevented him from practicing last year as a part of the 2011 class. Despite […]

Ohio State Spring Preview – Defense

Ohio State’s defense has been one of the most consistently excellent units in college football over the last decade. Sadly, the 2011 season was a major bump in the road for the defense and the team. Needless to say, the Silver Bullets will be looking to get back on track in Urban Meyer’s first year […]

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. The starting group of three has been set with little […]

Way Too Early Look: 2011 Linebackers

The Buckeyes lose two starters at linebacker in 2011, Brian Rolle in the middle and Ross Homan on the weak side. The situation is remarkably similar to 2009, when Ohio State lost James Laurinaitis in the middle and Marcus Freeman on the weak side. Fortunately, the duo of Rolle and Homan proved more than capable […]

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 […]

Way Too Early Look: Linebackers (updated)

Long time readers (if there are any of you out there) know that linebacker is my favorite position, so this should be fun. Adding to the fun is the absolutely ridiculous amount of talent that the Buckeyes are packing in the linebacking corps right now. Ohio State has depth, experience, talent, youth, and probably a […]

Looking at the Linebackers: Week 4

And now it is time for the much anticipated return of my look at the various position groups this season. [crowd cheers loudly] Thank you. I wasn’t sure which group I should go back and look at first, or when I should go back and re-evaluate each position, but I figure after three games we […]

Offensive Tackle: Key to the Season

In my last post, I looked at the linebacker situation at Ohio State. Talking LB’s is one of my favorite topics and I think Ohio State’s linebacker tradition stacks up against any team in the country (I’m looking at you Penn State). While it is fun to envision our LBs running around laying the smack down on some hapless Big […]

Looking at the Linebackers

Hello all, my name is Jim and I love the Buckeyes. First of all, I’d like to thank Jeff for giving me this opportunity to share my love of the Buckeyes in a semi-professional manner with all of you. I hope that you enjoy what I have to say. Very briefly, I was born and […]
