  Ohio State Buckeyes v the UNLV Rebels
Posted by: Steve - Yesterday, 07:46 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Ohio State is looking to get warmed up for conference play against UNLV (the Rebels) this Saturday in The HorseShoe, noon on the BigTen Network.

The first three games of the season for the Buckeyes provided more stressful than pre-season play is supposed to. Indiana gave them trouble on the road with some excellent passing, a quick pace, and big talented receivers. Oklahoma came into Columbus and outplayed them in a number of ways. And then Army, with its unique running style, provided a challenge in preparation.

UNLV

The Rebels or the Mountain West (1-1) enter the game a 40 point underdog and haven’t shown much to this point this year. Plus they play a more traditional style of offense.

UNLV did win the second game of the season against Idaho 44-16 but looked really bad against Howard, when they were considered a 45 point favorite. UNLV comes into the game with some talent on offense in wide receiver Devonte Boyd, quarterback Armani Rogers, and tailback Lexington Thomas.

  Ohio State Continues Focus on Offense Heading Into Army Game
Posted by: Steve - 09-16-2017, 10:43 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Kevin_Wilson_Coach

During the weekly press conference with head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, reporters wanted to know what was wrong with the Buckeye offense. Meyer stated that the team will continue to stay balanced between passing and running and does not plan to feature the backs more on Saturday. He has mentioned to the team how the 2014 squad lost their second game to Virginia Tech but was able to rebound and win out.

Kevin Wilson

Wilson is the primary play caller this year and Meyer feels that only one quarter, the 2nd against Indiana, was up to the level the team needs to be at.

A lot was expected when Wilson replaced Tim Beck and Ed Warinner this year at the head of the offense. Ryan Day, a Chip Kelley student, was also added during the off-season, coming on board from the NFL for additional offensive game planning.

But the blame from fans hasn’t ended with the coach, the quarterback and the wide receivers have also heard it from the fans who expect them to be making more big plays on the field.

Wilson feels that he can make quarterback JT Barrett look better by putting him into position to make plays. He also felt play calling was the issue with the receivers and not getting separation as some have felt.

  Ohio State Gets Junior College Tackle Antwuan Jackson
Posted by: Steve - 09-13-2017, 10:51 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

AntwuanJackson

The 2018 recruiting class for Ohio State is stacking up to be another top 2 class for Urban Meyer and the Buckeye coaches. With the addition of Junior College standout, tackle Antwuan Jackson, they now rank first nationally according to many ranking services.

The loss to Oklahoma has decreased OSU’s ability to get big name recruits as they grabbed Jackson on Tuesday, three days after the home loss.

Long Road to Ohio State

Jackson was recruiting by the Buckeyes in 2016 but selected Auburn. He left Auburn after one year as a redshirt and played for Blinn College last season. He re-entered recruitment as one of the best in the country at this position and Ohio State offered him a scholarship again. He committed two weeks after receiving the offer.

Already into the season at Blinn, he has 15 tackles and 3 sacks in 2 games.

Blinn College was also the school of current Ohio State corner Kendall Sheffield. So there is some familiarity between the coaches at the colleges.

Jackson joins Taron Vincent from Bradenton Florida as two defensive tackles in the class of 2018.

  Ohio State Sees Indiana as a Good Test for Oklahoma
Posted by: Steve - 09-08-2017, 09:20 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

BakerMayfield

Indiana quarterback Richard Lagow provided a strong test for the Ohio State secondary last Thursday night that should provide some good experience for the young squad going into this weekend’s game against the Oklahoma Sooners. Along with a set of big receivers, Lagow completed 420 yards in the air on 68 tosses.

Baker Mayfield

Now Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, Heisman candidate, comes to Columbus with similar ability plus added running ability. Lagow threw the ball quickly before Ohio State’s stellar defensive line could get to him. Mayfield likes to move outside of the pocket and make passes while he’s on the run to receivers that open up down the field. Mayfield also has a decent arm with the ability to roll out to one side and make throws across the field to the opposite side.

Last week Oklahoma played their opener against Texas-El Paso. Mayfield played the first half of the game, completing 19 passes on 20 attempts in a 56-7 win. So his accuracy throwing the ball is not a question.

  Ohio State Football Depth Chart 2017–Oklahoma
Posted by: Steve - 09-06-2017, 05:52 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

OklahomaSooners-BoomerSooner-Schooner

A few changes in the depth chart for the Buckeyes this week as they go up against #7 ranked Oklahoma at home. Again Ohio State will be featured on ESPN College GameDay. Mike Weber, 2016 Big 10 Freshman of the Year, is back and the plan is to split carries for the running backs between Weber and break-out freshman JK Dobbins (181 yards against Indiana). Hopefully Antonio Williams will also get some carries after a great game against Indiana.

A couple of line backers have been added to the third string including sophomore Justin Hilliard and freshman Pete Werner.

Kickoff is at 7:30pm on ABC.

  Indiana Sellout And 10 Thousand to Hurricane Harvey Relief
Posted by: Steve - 09-01-2017, 09:31 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

HoustonStrong

Having a in-conference game start the season is an odd happening but with the game being played during prime-time on ESPN and Indiana’s Memorial Stadium being within driving distance from Columbus Ohio, it shouldn’t be any surprise that the stadium has sold-out for the season opener tonight. Ohio State enters the game ranked 2nd in the country. Capacity for the stadium is a little less than half of what can be held at Ohio State’s stadium, 52,929.

The last time Indiana sold out their stadium was October 3rd, 2015 against Ohio State once again. The Buckeyes won that game 34-27.

Ohio State comes into the 2017 season with a new offensive coordinator, Kevin Wilson, who was released from Indiana program last year.

  WR LChristian Smith Committed to Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 08-30-2017, 04:44 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

LChristianSmith

Huber Heights Wayne Wide Receiver L’Christian (Blue) Smith committed to Ohio State this past week over offers from many top programs including Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Alabama, and Tennessee. Cincinnati and Kentucky were the other two finalist but Ohio State had always been his dream school. He also has a teammate, Alex Reigelsperger, headed to the Wildcats, who offered him first so the decision was difficult. UK has brought in 36 recruits from Ohio after picking up a couple of coaches from the Youngstown area five years ago.

The Announcement

Smith made the announcement prior to a televised game on ESPN against Gibsonia Pennsylvania Pine-Richland. (Wayne lost 41-0)

The Camp That Set Everything in Motion

Early in the Spring, Smith didn’t feel the Buckeyes were making him a priority and felt they would play him at Tight End if he did enroll in the program. But Smith was able to talk with Urban Meyer about his plans and became confortable in what the Buckeyes had to offer the in-state prospect.

He became comfortable with the program and the coaching staff during a camp visit in June. Depending on his size during his career at Ohio State he might play wide receiver but he might also play the h-back position. He is currently 6’6” and 205 lbs., a big target. No plans to move him to Tight End when he gets to Columbus.

  Running Back JK Dobbins Could See Many Touches In Ohio State Opener
Posted by: Steve - 08-23-2017, 03:14 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

JKDobbins

True freshman JK Dobbins has sprinted ahead of the depth chart for the Buckeyes at running back this fall and might get to play quite a bit against Indiana (August 31st) in the opener with Mike Weber sidelined with a hamstring issue or with him in the game. With Mike Weber and Demario McCall already set to provide depth at running back in the Spring, Dobbins entered the team early from high school and began to show what he is capable of. Now in the fall, he is showing not only great talent but the ability to block well and the understand the plays that Ohio State wants to run this year.

  Quarterback Joe Burrow Breaks Hand Bone
Posted by: Steve - 08-23-2017, 03:14 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

dmuE8TcO_400x400

Joe Burrow, backup quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes, will miss the beginning of the 2017 season due to a broken bone in his throwing hand. The Athens Ohio redshirted sophomore broke the bone in practice performing a fake handoff early this week and had surgery to set the bone yesterday. He will miss the first games of the season, his return date is uncertain.

Burrow played in 5 games last year for the Buckeyes, competing 22 passes for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also ran for one score. Burrow appeared to be the player that could come into a game if JT Barrett went down with an injury and manage the remainder due to his experience. Now the Buckeyes will need to look to Dwayne Haskins for all snaps without Barrett.

2014 Season

The quarterbacks are always aware that their time might come in the next game depending on injury. With 2014 as a reminder of this when Braxton Miller, JT Barrett, and Cardale Jones all got time as the first string quarterback on the way to the National Championship. Miller, going out in the preseason with a shoulder issue. JT Barrett, breaking an ankle against Michigan. And Jones winning the National Title after three post-season starts.
