What are Kevin Wilson’s Priorities This Spring for the Ohio State Offense?

Kevin Wilson entered spring football for the Ohio State Buckeyes carrying a pretty heavy burden — fix the OSU offense, or else! Okay, maybe that’s not exactly accurate, but it’s probably pretty close to his current demeanor. The Ohio State offense will remain “the Ohio State offense” until Urban Meyer is no longer in charge of the program, but Wilson’s touches and flourishes will be readily apparent. Fixing an offense…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘If I have a really good toy I want another really good toy’

As you may have heard, redshirt senior Chris Worley is Ohio State’s starting middle linebacker, and it was a decision that was made for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons that his coaches have entrusted him with this duty and honor is because his teammates respond to his leadership. Another reason is that he simply gets the job done. “The leadership piece, that Mike linebacker is our…

Five for Friday: Takeaways from the First Half of Ohio State’s Spring Camp

Drawing conclusions with only bits and pieces of information is one of the things that I admittedly do terrifically well. I can connect the dots with the best of them, provided the dots are clearly marked and not confusing and in the proper order and quite sizable. In terms of connecting the dots of spring football for the Buckeyes, some pictures have been made clearer than others. What I have…

Mike Weber Liking the Addition of Kevin Wilson

Change isn’t always easy, but it becomes less difficult when the positive results begin to roll in.

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘A couple of those guys are going to play on Sundays for a long time’

Some eyebrows were raised when Urban Meyer hired Kevin Wilson to be his offensive coordinator this past winter. With the way that Wilson departed Indiana, a crooked glance or two was to be expected. Meyer and Ohio State did their due diligence, however, and were very comfortable bringing Wilson into the fold to run an offense that had been sputtering a bit of late. When a new coach arrives, players…

Ryan Day Breaks Down the Buckeye Quarterbacks

Ryan Day has only been around Ohio State’s football program for a few months, but he’s been more than knee deep in it since his arrival. As the Buckeyes’ new quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator, Day has inherited a loaded group of passers, and one that should be able to meet the requirements that he has for the position. Until spring practice finally got underway this month, however, Day’s opinions…
