Urban Meyer’s Greatest Task at Ohio State: on the field or off of it?

Ohio-State-logo

The past few months have been rocky for Ohio State and Urban Meyer. Around this time last year we learned that due to a lack to player control (players selling team memorabilia in exchange for tattoos), Ohio State was forced to vacate wins from the 2010 season. Also, beloved head coach Jim Tressel, one of the schools winningest coaches, was forced to resign after knowingly withholding information about his players’ violations.

Due to the abrupt departure of Tressel, Luke Fickell took over as the interim head coach for the Buckeyes until they could find a permanent replacement (Meyer). With Fickell as a quick fix for the troubled program, Ohio State went 6-7, the first losing season for the Buckeyes since 1988.

After taking control, Urban Meyer is expected to clean up the program off the field, and lead the team back to success on the field. Which task will be toughest?

(UPDATE: Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer confirmed today (Monday, June 4) that Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort have been suspended from all football team activities. And then issued no further comment at this time.)

Two very important Ohio State Buckeyes were arrested late Friday night (Saturday morning). The team’s best offensive lineman/projected starting left tackle and the starting tight end/guy who will be probably be QB Braxton Miller‘s top receiving target this fall were caught urinating in public; which led to obstruction of justice misdemeanor offenses.

Ohio State 2010: Preseason Jitters

This Thursday, at about 7:15 p.m. on September 2, the 2010 Ohio State Football Buckeyes will rush from the depths of Ohio Stadium and onto the Horseshoes’s FieldTurf for their opening game battle against the Marshall Thundering Herd. For the faithful, there will be goose bumps. For the rest of the college football community (and the Ohio faithful too), there will be a torrential downpour of expectations for the Buckeyes to play up to. And for many Ohio State fans, that’s a little scary.
