sarah-jones

The 2013 Ohio State Spring football Game will be played April 13 in Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium, officials from the Ohio State Department of Athletics, Cincinnati Bengals and Hamilton County announced today.

As you well know, people in central Ohio have no life, so this scrimmage, this opportunity to see third-stringers battle one another routinely draws 80-90,000 people; reflecting the dysfunctional dependency that people there have for college football. They’re even willing to pay for this because they have nothing else going on in their lives.

12-0 Ohio State Buckeyes could finish with AP National Title

urban-meyer

Despite Ohio State’s post-season ban, the Buckeyes played the season like a team with a National Championship on the line. Every week Urban Meyer had his guys ready to play, and every week, his players came away with a victory.

Very rarely does a team play up to their full potential when they have, seemingly, nothing to play for. There was no Big Ten or National Championship waiting for the Buckeyes at the end of the season, but they strapped up every week and gave it their all.

Is Urban Meyer Good For The Big Ten?

urban-meyer

From the time  it was announced that Jim Tressel would be leaving Ohio State, one man had been on the minds of not just the Buckeye faithful, but all of the Big Ten:  Urban Meyer. Even as Luke Fickell took over the reins for Ohio State last season, the writing was on the wall that Fickell was there to serve as the buffer between the Tressel and Meyer eras.

Ohio State stays undefeated despite struggles on both sides of the ball

braxton-miller

In spite of themselves, the Buckeyes are still undefeated on the young season. Coach Urban Meyer narrowed the problems to “offense, defense and special teams,” expressed his disappointment and said his players have to get dramatically better before opening Big Ten play at No. 21 Michigan State on Saturday.

Despite the lackluster efforts on all three phases, Ohio State still beat UAB 29-15. The offense has been too reliant on Braxton Miller, who came leading the Big Ten in rushing. He ran for two more scores today, but the team itself struggled versus a unit known to give up 44 points per game.

osu-hotty

For the second consecutive afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes practiced on the lush green grass fields at the Harmon Family Football Park where the temperatures can be as much as 30 degrees cooler than on the FieldTurf fields. Tuesday, with a mid-practice temp from a smart phone that read 90 degrees “but felt like 88,” was another single practice day, but it was the second for the full squad. The initial practice of the season last Friday consisted of a split squad, with the freshman and rookies practicing in the afternoon after the returning veterans practiced in the morning.
