Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘You have to show that you are going to be competitively excellent in all that you do’

The inability of the Ohio State Buckeyes to employ a deep passing game has been talked about at OSU for a couple of years now, and will continue to be talked about until it is no longer an issue. Much time was spent this spring on making the deep ball a viable part of the Buckeye offense. That work involved pass protection, quarterback accuracy, trust in the receivers, and getting…

This year, the three-day period will take place December 20-22 and coincide with the first three days of the junior college signing period. It will join the current signing period that begins the first Wednesday of February. An early…

Ohio State Spring Recap: Buckeye Offensive Line Taking Shape

There are 52 starts returning from last season on the Ohio State offensive line, which doesn’t even include the 28 starts that Billy Price compiled in 2014 and 2015. There is still work to do here, however, and much of that work surrounds the situation at right guard. That position did not get settled this spring, which will remain a focus during the summer and into fall camp. What else…

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…

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…
