Funniest Ohio State Football Twitter Schadenfreude


With the #3 Ohio State football team going down tonight at the hands of the #13 Michigan State Spartans, it appears we’ll have a new champion in college football. The OSU winning streak stops at 23 now, and the Buckeyes national title hopes are extinct.

Then, the Buckeyes star tailback Ezekiel Elliott unloaded on his coaching staff and called them out. He also said that he is turning pro.

Ezekiel Elliott wasted no time in moving on with his life following the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes upset at the hand of the #13 Michigan State Spartans. In the postgame media availability, the OSU tailback said that he’s turning pro after this season and called out his coaching staff.

“What happened today was like a bad, bad dream,” Ezekiel Elliott said. “Honestly, that was my last game at [Ohio Stadium]”

#3 Ohio State football vs #13 MSU: Four Critical Questions

taylor decker ohio state football

Ohio State football is done with their “opening round” games. Now it’s the “round of 32” game which doubles as the Big Ten East Division Title game. Then it’s Michigan in the Sweet 16, the Elite 8 versus Iowa and so forth. The analogy is slightly flawed but you get the idea.

Here’s what to watch for on Saturday in THEEEE game of the week.

2016 NFL mock draft 11-17-15

nfl draft town 2016 nfl mock draft

This 2016 NFL mock draft order, #1-#10 at least, is derived from Niners Nation, the 49ers community on SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule to determine the top ten.

Picks #22-#32 were based on a composite of current NFL power rankings. Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”

There will be a ton of Ohio State players selected in April’s NFL Draft. Quite a few will go in the first round. You can argue a case for about a dozen guys on the current Buckeyes roster who should be first round picks in whatever year they come out. Wide Receiver Michael Thomas is definitely one of those guys.

#1 Ohio State Football Still Very Much Lacking Style Points


Your #1 Ohio State football team is still undefeated. The Nation’s best winning streak extends to 23. Urban Meyer, ESPN’s all-time favorite college football coach, is now 48-3 during his time in Columbus. However, there is still plenty of room for improvement. It’s more than just room, it’s a city block.

The Buckeyes’ 28-3 triumph today was not the proverbial “closer than the score indicated” kind of game. Ohio State won by 25 and it felt like they won by 25, but again they let a much less talented team hang around too long.

The three main guys making headlines this week for Ohio State football are three Bs- Braxton, Barrett and Bell.

Quarterback J.T. Barrett is reinstated after the suspension due to OVI. He’ll start provided his week of practice goes fine. (Spoiler alert: it will). Former QB1 turned wide receiver Braxton Miller got banged up in the win over Minnesota. He’s certain to be a full go too.

Ohio State Basketball uncharacteristic underdogs this season

Ohio State was a big step forward for NIU Huskies


The unranked NIU Huskies played at #1 Ohio State today as if a Power Five Conference expansion committee was watching. Maybe the Big 12 might be making a couple phone calls someday down the line.

Today’s effort was night and day different from last year’s Power 5 road trip disaster. Instead of getting utterly annihilated by a mediocre Arkansas team, Northern Illinois went into Columbus and had Ohio State Buckeyes fans gnawing on their finger nails with three minutes to go.

NIU was down just one possession, with the ball, inside four minutes to go. It may sound very trite to say this, but it’s a moral victory. In situations like this, plucky mid-major versus high-major super-power oligarchs, moral victories do exist.

Ohio State Buckeyes: circled date on NIU Huskies schedule

Ohio State buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeyes see your “SEC speed,” and raise the stakes on you. The SEC is essentially the AAA of the NFL, and Ohio State’s roster this upcoming season is essentially a NFL Developmental League franchise. There are first, second and third round picks everywhere; in all position groups.

John Calipari has made Kentucky basketball a de facto NBA D-League franchise. This fall, Urban Meyer will do the same with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Think of Ohio State as a SEC team that just happens to be in a state that wasn’t once part of the Confederacy. The Buckeyes are the new Alabama Crimson Tide.

Both Ohio St.and Virginia Tech are doing the right thing Monday night by honoring the two victims slain earlier this week by yet another senseless shooting made possible by lax gun control regulations. The two teams will play Monday night sporting helmet decals in homage to the two WDBJ journalists shot and killed by a mad man who easily obtained a firearm without much of a screening process.
