Kevin Feder Is A Buckeye !!!

OK, let’s just get this out of the way now. Yes, Kevin Feder plays offensive line. At 6′ 9″ and 300+ pounds, he’s got the genetics to be a fantastic bookend. The problem is that this means we’ll get a lot of “Kevin Feder Line” jokes in the coming months… which is nice, because the […]

Rumblin', Stumblin', Bumblin': NFL Draft Follow-Up

If you are interested in where I was last week with respect to draft day check it out here . I was pretty close with my thoughts around who was good, who was bad, and initially hit the nail on the head about the bad(Browns). This week I really dive into who rumbled through, who may […]

Silver Bullet Points: Halloween Edition

Well, you’ve got all day to plan your attack for tonight… personally, I’ve got plans to go to “all the candy is on sale” day tomorrow. We’re digging through our country albums for today’s soundtracks; one goofy, one “creepy”. Country not your thing? Well remember, we used to think this and this were OK as […]

Jamarco Jones Is A Buckeye!!!

While Ohio State’s recruiting for 2014 has been chugging along quite admirably, there have been some who continued to be concerned regarding the  ability to “close” with highly touted offensive line talent.  Given the targets that have chosen to go elsewhere rather than Columbus thus far in the recruiting season, and given the fact that […]

I also want to thank the Thurman’s, Dave and Drew, of The Silver Bullet, for mentoring me on the ways and mysteries of sports blogging, […]

Ohio State Football: 2012 Offensive Line

I always anticipate great things from the offensive line before the start of each season. Unfortunately, I have been disappointed once the games are underway more often than not over the past decade . This season brings renewed hope that my preseason expectations for greatness will be met. Most of that hope centers around what new […]

Tim Gardner Is (Finally) A Buckeye!!

Great news for a Saturday; it’s great to come back from a vacation to read that Indianapolis Lawrence Central’s Tim Gardner has become the 16th member of the Ohio State 2013 recruiting class. Gardner initially “verballed” back in June, but was informed that his commitment wasn’t quite necessary at this time- there’s speculation that the […]

Evan Lisle is a Buckeye!

Ohio offensive lineman Evan Lisle has announced he will be a Buckeye this evening, becoming the fifth member of Ohio State’s 2013 recruiting class. Being from the Buckeye friendly town of Centerville and having recently received an offer from Ohio State, this commitment doesn’t come as a surprise, although it is still nice to officially […]

Ohio State Recruiting: 2013 Offensive Line

When looking at offensive line recruiting, it is simplest to break things down into two categories: interior players and tackles. In 2012, the Buckeyes had a serious need at tackle, which they helped address by signing Kyle Dodson and Taylor Decker. They also signed projected interior players Jacoby Boren, Pat Elflein and Joey O’Connor. Boren […]

Scarlet Assassins Reloaded: Offensive Line

  Last week I covered the awesomeness that is the Silver Bullet defense (line, linebackers, and secondary). I strongly believe that the defense alone is good enough to win nine games this season- regardless of what happens on the other side of the ball. Nine wins is good at a lot of schools, but for […]

Way Too Early Look: 2011 Offensive Line

As the saying goes, games are won in the trenches. Cliche or not, a dominating offensive line can take a team to the next level. See: Wisconsin. With three senior returning starters to anchor the line, Ohio State has the makings of domination in 2011. Unfortunately, we haven’t reached the point in these ‘way too early’ […]

Youth Movement in the Trenches

There are a lot of things to get excited about for the upcoming season. Returning starters, award candidates, dominating lineman, dynamic receivers,  depth at running back, hard hitting linebackers, the most experienced offensive line in years… take your pick. Whatever you want to talk about in the last days before kickoff, there is probably something […]

Way Too Early Look: Offensive Line (updated)

The offensive line is probably the most publicized position at the moment due to missing out on three prospects on signing day. Update: not so much anymore, but LT is still one of the most interesting position battles this spring. Those signing day disappointments also makes depth along the offensive line an area of concern […]
