Only nine regular season games remain in the season, with the Buckeyes in the conversation as a possible College Football Playoff participant. As […]
This article originally appeared at ohiostate.scout.com Thoughts on Last Week Much like Urban Meyer, I was concerned about how this young team would respond to a hostile road environment at Oklahoma. I was nervous all day – the delayed kickoff didn’t help – but once the ball was in the air, and the Buckeyes put up a […]
That was fun, no? The Buckeyes are heading into their idle week on a high, after going into Norman, Okla., and punching the Sooners in the mouth over in over again. All night. Every Buckeye fan wanted a win. Some of us wanted more. Are we happy today? Read on and find out, starting with […]
(This article originally appeared at ohiostate.scout.com) Thoughts on Last Week Well, the result on the scoreboard certainly didn’t reflect what I saw on the television last week. Ohio State’s bland offense let Tulsa hang around for too long, and the defense forced turnover after turnover, yet the Buckeyes settled for punting or field goals? The […]
http://gty.im/489184114 Ohio State travels to Norman, Oklahoma, in a game widely anticipated throughout college football. The contract for this series was signed back in January 2008, when the majority of these players were still in grade school, and Jim Tressel was patrolling the sidelines for Ohio State. Oklahoma has been fortunate to have the same […]
The Buckeyes entered today 1-0 coming off a record breaking performance last weekend against Bowling Green. The offense racked up 776 yards of total offense and score 77 points, the most since 1950. There was the threat of some severe weather at kickoff, however it held off until around halftime, but it didn’t help the […]
Due to gaffe on my part, we failed to run the season-opening edition last week. But What Do You Want To See is back and better than ever. I hate that cliché but oh well. Each week our crack staff, and our staff on crack will present a wish list of sorts, highlighting expectations for […]
Tulsa Golden Hurricanes @ Ohio State Buckeyes – Ohio Stadium, 3:30 p.m. ET Things could not have gone more smoothly in Columbus on Saturday as the Buckeyes completely annihilated the Bowling Green Falcons on their way to breaking a few records which have stood for many years. Even the most die-hard fan out there could […]

It’s that time of year again – when Ohio State football takes the field, and millions of fans across the world tune in to watch the Buckeyes […]
Coming out of the final practice of the fall before their match up for Bowling Green, Urban Meyer clarified one of the OR’s on the depth chart today. Mike Weber, the redshirt freshman from Michigan, was told today that he would be the starting running back Saturday in the Horseshoe. Weber will take over for […]
Bowling Green Falcons @ Ohio State Buckeyes – Ohio Stadium Noon ET It started as soon as the Buckeyes finished off Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl on January 1st. Everyone knew the Ohio State football team would look completely different for the 2016 season. Slowly over the next couple of days, players declared for […]
There hasn’t been a lot happening that could motivate me to go to town like I usually do in this weekly article. First let me say that it’s great being back with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that is Ohio State football. Of course I let the gang get involved and they have […]
As a staff, nobody covers certain topics better than us here at the Buckeye Battle Cry, plus we love us some roundtable type stuff where we can bust out the wings and brewskies. Be sure to check in every Monday after a game for our awards and even during the bye week we will pick […]
It has been well-documented the Buckeyes have lost 16 starters from last year’s team. Additionally, it has been well-publicized that approximately all of them went in the first round this year of the NFL draft. Naturally, we as a fan base would like to use our memories of the glorious 2014 season and compare the […]

Hopefully, we will have one just about every Friday as the practices and season hit to keep you updated on our pulse as a crew. Let’s get rolling with our pre-season expectations! What is the one […]

In a little more than a month, teams across the nation will begin their fall workouts in preparation for the upcoming season. Football season brings with it a fantasy world where people sit around and come up with their […]
It’s really no big deal at all. The Buckeyes just have to replace a guy who averaged 2,062 rushing and receiving yards during his two years as starter. No really trust me, it’s not a big deal they just have to replace a guy who scored 41 touchdowns over those two years. That’s not really […]
Joe Dexter and Clair Crawford discuss where they feel Mike Weber stands heading into the summer and if he can be the full-time back starting early in the season.
Plus, can the Ohio State offensive line be as productive as the Ed Warinner groups over the last three years?
Clair Crawford and Joe Dexter break down the story lines from after the Spring game and their initial actions to seeing key players on the field for the first time.
Topics include the play of Joe Burrow, Malik Hooker, Mike Weber, Austin Mack, Torrance Gibson and both sides of the line of scrimmage.
It was a painful three months since we were last able to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes take the field and play some football. The rabid fan base responded to the requests of the Buckeye coaching staff and set a new spring game attendance record with 100,189. The game played out exactly how many of […]
