Nebraska’s loss is Ohio State’s gain, as offensive lineman Mirko Jurkovic joins the 2015 Ohio State recruiting class. Jurkovic, who had been a Cornhusker verbal for quite some time, reopened his process this past Sunday. This followed both a trip to Columbus for The Game and the announcement that Bo Pelini had been let go […]
Welp, it’s time to sit down and see how things are going thus far. Our staff will be administering performance reviews for the season thus far as Ohio State prepares for the B1G Eastern Conference Chase. First up, the score-makers. Who are the players that are living up to the hype thus far? Patrick- Boy, […]
The first week of college football wraps up with more questions than answers for Ohio State.
Our insider, Dave Miller, joins Shae Peppler to discuss how the Buckeyes’ offensive line is adjusting as they get set to square off against Virginia Tech, as well as how South Carolina’s defense failed to impress in their season opener.
Quick look at things inside the WHAC and around the country. Champs-Daron Lee, Tyvis Powell, and Doran Grant graded champions. Devin Smith, Evan Spencer, Dontre Wilson, Jeff Huerman, Nick Vannett and Taylor Decker were the teams Offensive championship grades. Also Ezekiel Elliot was the player of the game. Something Completely Different- The Buckeye Defense had […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Major Award winner Ken has submitted the following guest post for your perusal and enjoyment… I want to thank the staff at tBBC for the opportunity to post an article. 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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
To get Buckeye Nation ready for the first Spring Game in Urban Meyer’s tenure at Ohio State, the Buckeye Bloggers Network wanted to take an in-depth look at each position following spring practice. Be sure to check out all of the coverage! Thank you to all the writers who are participating in this, and a […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
