Sunday Recruiting Rundown

Sunday Recruiting Rundown: The Calm Before the Storm?

The week came and went with zero commitments for the Buckeyes, but it was still a productive week on the recruiting trail. Some prospects made their decisions, some cut their lists, and others were handed offers. While the focus is still on 2018 and getting the best class in the nation come February, Ohio State is starting to turn its attention more and more to 2019 and 2020 classes. Staying…

Photos: Ohio State Buckeyes Men’s Volleyball – National Champs Once Again!

COLUMBUS — The kills were alive with the sound of Buckeye music Saturday night in St. John Arena as the Ohio State Men’s Volleyball team captured their third NCAA Championship in program history. It was also the second in as many years. Check out Dan Harker’s photos from the entire event. Reese Devilbiss serves it to BYU. Photo by Dan Harker Maxime Hervoir sends it over. Photo by Dan Harker…

Buckeye Men Got the Crowd That They Deserved

“Friends and family.” That’s who Ohio State men’s volleyball head coach Pete Hanson said the Buckeyes usually play in front of. On Saturday night in St. John Arena, however, there were 8,205 tempest-throated kith and kin in attendance and they did not want to be ignored. Not when the national title was on the line. Trailing BYU 8-7 in the first set, the Buckeye fans in attendance began to make…

Ohio State Men’s Volleyball Back-To-Back National Champs!

COLUMBUS — For the third time in school history — and second time in exactly 365 days, the Buckeyes are NCAA Champions. Ohio State’s Men’s Volleyball team successfully defended their 2016 national title with a three-set win over the same BYU team that they defeated one year ago. The Cougars came into the match with a 25-5 record, but they struggled through the match to keep with a Buckeye team…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘When the ball is in his hands, he is very dynamic’

At this point in Urban Meyer’s tenure at Ohio State, people simply assume a position group will replace losses well. They also believe that the returning Buckeyes will improve from where they were the year before. Fortunately for those people, Meyer is not one of those doing the assuming and believing. Instead, he and his staff are working to fulfill the expectations of the fans and the coaches by getting…

Ohio State Spring Recap: Safeties in Numbers

The Ohio State safeties went into the spring with the problem of having to replace All-American Malik Hooker, and they certainly didn’t get the entire job done over March and April. They are closer than they were, but there is still plenty of work to be done. The good news is that returning starter Damon Webb has stepped up and there are talented options to join him in the starting…

Football, Basketball, Baseball, Volleyball; All-Americans Stand Out When You See Them

COLUMBUS – They announced the names of the first-team All-American men’s volleyball team between sets at the NCAA Final-Four last night. The name Nicolas Szerszen was on that list. Take it to the bank, the vast majority of Ohio State fans who see or hear that name will respond with a funny face and an inquisitive “Who?” It might interest you to know that before Thursday evening I was one…

OSU Men’s Volleyball Advances to National Championship with Three Set Win Over Hawaii

COLUMBUS — Once the Buckeyes got started, there was nothing the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors could do to stop them. Led by the stellar serving of All-American Nicolas Szerszen and the precision passing of Christy Blough, the No. 1-seed Buckeyes (31-2) went 25-23, 25-18, and 25-19 over No. 4-seed Hawaii (27-6) to advance to the NCAA title game on Saturday against No. 3-seed BYU (26-4). Ohio State never trailed in the…

Reader Mail: Mike Weber’s Rushing Stats in 2017

Let’s talk about Mike Weber. Every few weeks I’ll trot out a mailbag and see what’s going on in the collective minds of Buckeye fans. When I’m in between mailbags, however, and I receive interesting emails, I still like to go ahead and address them in a more public forum. Today was one of those days. This is the question that deserved a more drawn-out answer than just a simple…

Ohio State Spring Recap: Quarterback Stockpile Impresses

It’s probably safe to say that Ohio State has never had this much returning talent combined with this much untapped potential at the quarterback position. It’s a great situation for quarterbacks coach Ryan Day to be in, and it’s not a bad situation for the quarterbacks either. With this being J.T. Barrett’s last go-round with the Buckeyes, the battle for 2018 began this spring and will continue for the next…

Buckeye Receivers Want to Bring Swagger Back to Zone 6

Over the last two seasons, Ohio State wide receivers have caught a total of 42 touchdown passes. That might sound like a lot, but compare that number to the 33 they caught in 2014 alone, and you can see a downward trend that nobody with the Buckeyes is satisfied with. A receiver’s connection with the end zone should never be overlooked. Instead, those 4,800 square feet worth six points should…
