Dante Booker Just What Buckeyes Looking for at Sam Linebacker

Get ready for Dante Booker. The Ohio State defense has only had two players start at their Sam linebacker position since they implemented their current defense back in 2014. Those two players are Darron Lee and Chris Worley, and both came to Ohio State as safeties. That background in the secondary helped them out there because they often found themselves in coverage out in space. More importantly, however, the athleticism…

Say Goodbye to the Mouse, Ohio State-Michigan Headed to FOX

Ohio State’s biggest rivalry game will air on FOX this season, as will their game against Michigan. Okay, that was a cheap shot, but it couldn’t be avoided. During Monday’s FOX upfronts (where the network previews its fall lineup), they announced some of the college football games on their schedule this year, including Penn State at Ohio State on October 28. The bigger news, however, was that the November 25…

Ohio State Defensive Line Doesn’t Have Ones and Twos, ‘We’re all ones’

The Ohio State defensive line rotated eight players last season, and they return every last one of them this year. Defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle also returns, as do the talented players who couldn’t quite crack the depth chart last year. More players are then arriving in the summer, like 5-star defensive end Chase Young and 4-star defensive tackle Haskell Garrett. Yes, it’s a good time to be Buckeyes’ defensive line…

Ohio State Spring Recap: Running Backs to the Future

There has been a lot of talk about the need to improve the Ohio State passing game, and with good reason. Let’s not forget, however, that the Buckeyes rushed for just 88 yards in a playoff game last year. The running game needs to rebound almost as much as the passing game. Based on what we saw this spring, it looks like both will take a step forward. Depth Chart…
