Five for Friday: Predictions for Week One of the 2017 CFB Season

I don’t remember my first-ever prediction, much like Michael Jordan probably doesn’t remember his first-ever made jumper. When you’re the best at what you do, the hard work kind of just blends together. While each sport has an offseason, there is no such time off for predicting. It’s a year-round thing, and if there isn’t constant honing of the craft, the craft will move on. Do you think I would…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘We’re scuffing them up, we’ve got to do that a little bit’

Best in America? Last season, the Ohio State secondary labeled themselves “BIA”, for “Best in America.” Normally, giving yourself a nickname is frowned upon, but the Buckeyes lived up to every last syllable. Three members of the secondary were selected in the first round of last month’s NFL Draft. Included in that number was a pair of cornerbacks in Gareon Conley and Marshon Lattimore. Replacing them is the sizable duty…

Buckeye Football Commitment Impact: Linebacker Dallas Gant

Tuesday was a good day for Dallas Gant, and also for Ohio State. Not only was it his birthday, but he gave his verbal commitment to the Buckeyes, adding to an already amazing 2018 recruiting class. With Gant’s commitment, the Buckeyes moved up to No. 2 in the 247Sports Team Rankings, despite having just 10 commitments. Gant becomes the second commitment from the state of Ohio for the Buckeyes. They…
Mike Weber vs Michigan 2016

Rookie Jitters Out of the Way, Mike Weber Maturing Into a Leader

The first year at Ohio State for Mike Weber was turbulent, to say the least. The former four-star running back hails from Detroit, Michigan, in the heart of Wolverine country. Before he was the Buckeyes’ next big running back, he was Michigan’s. Weber decommitted from Michigan and then committed to OSU in 2015. An unforgivable sin, the news wasn’t taken kindly by Wolverine fans. They scurried to the internet and…

Buckeyes Land Commitment from 4-Star Toledo Linebacker Dallas Gant

The Buckeyes secured their second in-state prospect today when 4-star outside linebacker Dallas Gant committed to the Buckeyes in a ceremony at his high school today. Gant selected the Buckeyes over offers from Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State. Gant (6-3 225) is a 4-star prospect out of St. John’s High School in Toledo, Ohio. Named third-team All-State last season, he is ranked as the No. 5 outside…
Dante Booker vs Penn State

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…

Football The Rivalry

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…
