Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘Now it’s either go home or go to the League’

Gaining Separation Ohio State is planning on fielding a much better passing attack in 2017, and they spent much of the spring setting up those expectations. Of particular interest is the downfield passing game, where the Buckeyes had just four completions of 40 or more yards last season. This spring they worked on several different areas in order to improve the overall effectiveness with the deep passing, with much of…

Could the Buckeyes Play More Than One Quarterback This Season?

Ohio State may be deeper than it has ever been at quarterback, but does that mean the Buckeyes have room for more than one signal caller to play this season? J.T. Barrett enters his fourth year of starting, and just about every game this season will see him setting new Ohio State or Big Ten records. Redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow returns for his second season as Barrett’s backup, provided he…

Looks Like Kam Williams is Coming Back for His Senior Season

Buckeye Breakdown: Same But Different at Linebacker

Despite Ohio State returning two-thirds of the linebacking corps from the 2016 season, this unit will look drastically different heading into the 2017 season. While the names and jersey numbers will look familiar, there is a similar feeling to when your spouse gets a haircut or moves a piece of furniture, forcing you to pause for a moment until you can put your finger on what exactly has changed. Only…

Many Happy (Punt) Returns for the Buckeyes in 2017?

Last year was the worst season of punt returning for the Buckeyes in Urban Meyer’s OSU tenure. Ohio State returned more punts than 110 other teams (27) last year, yet they managed just one return of at least 20 yards. Only 18 teams in the nation were worse than that a year ago. It was the second time in Meyer’s five years that the Buckeyes managed just one return of…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘He creates havoc in the backfield’

The Ohio State Havoc Man One of the pleasant surprises on the Ohio State defensive line last year was redshirt freshman nose tackle Robert Landers. Undersized at a listed 6-foot-1 and 283 pounds, Landers used his quickness and leverage to get into the backfield frequently early on. He finished fifth on the team with 7.5 tackles for loss. (He only finished with 16 total tackles on the season.) Landers’ lack…
