Despite what your neighborhood Michigan fan friend said would happen, Urban Meyer is still coaching at The Ohio State University. This season marks his longest coaching stretch at any school, topping his 6-year stint at Florida. The 2018 season will be his seventh go-round as the head coach of the scarlet and gray.
Over the past four football seasons, we have witnessed many Ohio State football records fall. Joe Thomas Barrett IV entered the scene in 2014, saw the field for four consecutive seasons, and demolished the stat column. That’s what happens when you’re an intelligent, talented quarterback and lead an Urban Meyer offense for multiple years.
If you couldn’t tell from any previous writings I’ve done, I love special teams in football. I love kickers. I love punters. There you go. It’s out there. As a fan of the Buckeyes since birth, I’ve been lucky to see two coaches who valued the kicking game. That’s not to imply that Earle Bruce didn’t, but my memories of that at…

As a freshman, he was unable to get onto the field on defense for more than a few plays at the end of games. As a result, Baker would second…
At last, after what seemed like ages, the day was upon them. Guests poured in and greeted Rome, Jerome, Teddie, and all of the other familiar faces. They ate, socialized, and settled in to watch, wait and pray that their host would hear his name called… and sooner rather than later. Excitement turned to nervousness.
Denzel Ward (who you may remember from such devastating hits as this and, of course, this) is just two days away from becoming a first-round NFL draft pick and a very rich man. And, in doing so, he’ll be joining some friends. Ohio State has been stocking the NFL with cornerbacks of late, and Ward is just the latest in that line.
