Ohio State Football: Urban Meyer's Offense

Hibernation: January 2011 – September 2012 Summers usually last a long time for me. As someone who looks forward to Buckeye football perhaps more than any other event each year, the time between spring practice and the start of fall camp is the quietest on the sports calendar. The lack of football related news to […]

Ohio State's Top 5 Impact Players on Offense

It is no secret that Urban Meyer has been less than enthusiastic about the offensive fire power he inherited on Ohio State’s roster. Meyer has repeatedly said that he is still waiting for someone to catch his eye as a game changer on that side of the ball. While I suspect that Meyer is serving […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Wide Receivers

Receiver was a position that held the Buckeyes back on the field last year. With Posey being out 10 games and the loss of Reed midway through the year, the team struggled tremendously with consistency and production from the position. As a result, the receiving stats from last season are painful to review. If the […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Running Backs

Talking about running back recruiting has been a nice treat for Ohio State over the past several years given the level of success we have seen. After last year’s class of Warren Ball and Brionte Dunn, the position isn’t the biggest need this year, although the staff is clearly looking to add at least one […]

Grading Ohio State's 2012 Recruiting Class: Offense

With the 2012 class all but over, and signing day come and gone, we take a look at the offensive portion of the 2012 class.  Tomorrow we will cover the defensive side of the ball. Quarterback (1) B In a year when the QB position was down overall nationally, we were able to hold on […]

Scarlet Assassins Reloaded: Quarterbacks

Braxton Miller and Joe Bauserman are listed as co-starters on the Akron depth chart. It has been reported that Joe Bauserman will be on the field for the first snap on offense (which I predicted in January), but clearly both players will have their chance to drive, drive on down the field with the men […]

Scarlet Assassins Reloaded: Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

  The receivers are one of the least experienced groups on the entire team. The suspension of Devier Posey compounds the issue significantly. As young and inexperienced as they may be (and let me reiterate, they are), they are also extremely talented- as you would expect from any group at Ohio State. It may take […]

By way of explanation…

You are aware of my beef with our O Line this year: Lack of focus, particularly on the one thing that they should always be aware of. The snap count. Ever since the Buckeyes squared off against the Gators in “The Game That We Don’t Talk About”, it seems that we can’t go a match […]

5 reasons Ohio State will beat USC

#5 USC’s new defense. I don’t know if anyone has noticed this amidst the gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair in the aftermath of the Navy game, but USC only has three returning starters on defense this year. This isn’t the same defense that throttled the Buckeyes last year. I am not saying that […]

Diaries from the Trenches: Offense

After thinking it over for a bit, I have decided to break down the interior offensive line (the guards and center) next in what is becoming an ongoing series of posts for me. I truly believe that improved play along the entire offensive line (in particular at tackle, as I mentioned in my last post) […]

Big Ten rankings, four weeks in

Personally, I LOVE looking over statistics, doing a little analyzing, and seeing what comes as a pleasant surprise. Since I’ve had a little extra time this week, I looked over the Big Ten rankings and found a few facts about where the Buckeyes stand through 4 games against the rest of the conference. Things that […]
