Cornerback Amir Riep and safety Jahsen Wint have been dismissed from the Ohio State football football program, effective immediately. OSU head coach Ryan Day issued a statement Wednesday evening announcing the decision.
On November 26, 2011, Michigan beat Ohio State, 40-34. The loss capped a 6-6 regular season for the Buckeyes and propelled the Wolverines to a Sugar Bowl berth against Virginia Tech. Wednesday, February 12, 2020 marks exactly 3,000 days since that day, the last time Michigan won The Game. A number like “3,000 days” can be hard to wrap your head around, especially…
By the end of Dawand Jones’ senior season in high school he was one of the most sought after offensive linemen in the nation. The reason for this was two-fold.

The Ohio State Buckeyes (15-8, 5-7) host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (17-7, 8-5) Wednesday night at Value City Arena for a 7:00 pm tip on the Big Ten Network.

The better news, however, is that neither of the Buckeyes’ two freshmen quarterbacks have to take the relaxed route if they don’t want to.
Ohio State doesn’t often dip into the state of North Carolina for recruiting purposes. Or at least when they do, they’re not all that successful. The Buckeyes have signed four players from North Carolina in the last 10 classes, with two of those players signing in the last two classes.
