Watch: Captain Billy Price is Mic’d Up for Spring Practice

Fifth-year senior center and captain Billy Price wore a microphone during Thursday’s practice — the seventh of spring camp for the Buckeyes — and the results were both entertaining and informative as the accompanying video from Ohio State Football’s official Twitter account shows Price joking around with teammates and also coaching them up and leading them through their paces. Check it out. ? Our captain @b_price54 sported the mic today…

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…

Cardale Jones (Mostly) Enjoying Transition to Buckeye Fan

Former Buckeye quarterback Cardale Jones was back on campus this week and attended Thursday’s Ohio State pro day. As usually happens when Jones shows up, cameras and microphones soon followed him. Topics ranged from his status with the Bills — which is fine, to his new status as a loud Buckeye fan, to his thoughts on Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day. “Yeah, I’ve met them guys,” he said of Wilson…

Spring Practice Insider: Buckeyes Back at it Following Break

The Buckeyes were back on the field for practice No. 3 of spring camp, which was also their first in pads. The media was permitted to watch the first hour, which featured only drills and no real scrimmaging of any sort. There did not appear to be any significant changes from the first week of practice, but there is still plenty of time for intrigue to hit. Trying to write…

Even with Luke Fickell Gone, It’s Still Business as Usual for OSU Defensive Staff

When Tom Herman left Ohio State for Houston, we saw the impact that a departing coordinator can have on the Buckeye football program. Urban Meyer is still trying to get things righted, though the expectations are justifiably high for what Kevin Wilson will bring to Ohio State this year. On the other side of the ball, however, the Buckeyes must now replace long-time coordinator Luke Fickell, and Meyer and defensive…

Ohio State Planning for an Even Deeper Defensive Line Rotation This Season

In terms of “first-world problems”, there are fewer problems more first world than the situation Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson finds himself in this year. The Buckeyes return eight defensive linemen who played in every game last season, and that doesn’t include defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle who missed the season after playing in 12 games in 2015. That also doesn’t include sophomore defensive ends Rashod Berry, Jonathon Cooper,…

Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘The fourth quarter, everybody is tired, but so what, you’ve just got to go’

Urban Meyer and Kevin Wilson can tell you what they are doing and what they have done to tweak the Ohio State offense, but if you want to know the effect it is having, you should go ask Buckeye defensive coordinator Greg Schiano because right now he’s the one having to deal with it. It’s Schiano and the rest of the defensive coaching staff who have seen what Wilson and…

Feedback from Players on OSU QB Coach Ryan Day Has Been Positive

You’re rarely going to have college football players speaking out against their coaches, so Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett having something positive to say about OSU’s new quarterback coach Ryan Day shouldn’t be anything other than expected. What Barrett is saying about Day, however, is something that he couldn’t say about his previous position coaches Tom Herman and Tim Beck. Namely, Day’s experience with NFL quarterbacks. “Coach Day, the one…

J.T. Barrett Has Unfinished Business to Tend to This Season According to Urban Meyer

Records are nice, and when he finally leaves Ohio State, J.T. Barrett will likely have more records than any other Buckeye before him. For quarterbacks, however, records are only at the top of the résumé if there are no championships to recite. No Buckeye is responsible for more touchdowns than J.T. Barrett, and by the halfway point of the 2017 season, no Buckeye will have thrown for more yards. Heck,…
