  Bo Delande had a Good Spring Camp along with Buckeyes

Bo Delande Photo Day 2009 

Bo Delande had a Good Spring Camp along with Buckeyes

A red-shirt sophomore out of Hilliard Davidson Ohio, Bo Delande, had a good Spring camp along with a number of other running backs that showcased their skills this past month in the Gray vs. Scarlet game. At 6’1” 185lbs, Delande has good size and speed for a running back in the Big Ten. During his high school career he helped lead the Wildcats to a Division I state title and walked on at Ohio State the following summer.

Nate Ebner World Cup 08 South Africa

Nate Ebner Enjoys Spring Game Atmosphere


Nate Ebner, a  freshman walk-on defensive back from Hilliard Davidson, did not get to play in the Spring Game but enjoyed the experience very much from the sidelines. After blowing out a hamstring in spring camp, Ebner was drafted by the Scarlet team but did not play in the annual Scarlet vs Gray game.

Justin Siems 2009 Spring Game

Justin Siems Walks On at Ohio State Adding Quarterback Depth

Going into the Spring, most Ohio State fans thought the Buckeyes would feature Terrelle Pryor, Joe Bauserman and Ross Oltorik at the quarterback position for the annual Spring Game. But Ross Oltorik remained full-time with the OSU baseball team while Justin Siems entered camp as a walk-on from North Carolina Tech Preparatory.

Nick Montana Washington 2010_2

Nick Montana Picks the Washington Huskies

After taking a little bit longer to decide than expected, California quarterback and national prospect Nick Montana selected to play his college career with the Washington Huskies. The 6’3” 180 lbs son of  an NFL legend, Montana had offers from over 12 schools with Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Stanford believed to be his favorites. But a good connection with Washington Head Coach Steve Sarkisian put them over the top.

  Ohio State Quarterback Todd Boeckman Signs with Jacksonville

Todd Boeckman

Ohio State Quarterback Todd Boeckman Signs with Jacksonville

Getting a shot in NFL might have always been Todd Boeckman’s goal but being a good teammate became more important when he lost his starting position to Terrelle Pryor as a senior last season. Now Boeckman is getting a shot at the next level with the Jacksonville Jaguars as he signs a free agent contract.

  Brian Robiskie will be a Welcome Addition to the Browns WR Corps
Posted by: Steve - 09-28-2009, 11:36 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Brian Robiskie Cleveland Browns

Brian Robiskie will be a Welcome Addition to the Browns WR Corps

A passing game requires both a QB to throw the ball and a WR to catch it. Prior to the draft, the Browns were OK in the QB department, but a trade and an auto accident depleted the receiving end of the passing game. Brian Robiskie is desperately needed by the Browns.

By Bill Smith

The TE Kellen Winslow was traded to Tampa. Donte Stallworth is suspended indefinitely by the league for his accident under the influence of alcohol in Miami that killed a pedestrian. Josh Cribbs is too valuable as a return man to use at WR. Last year, Cribbs' returns suffered because he was trying to do too much.

Then there is the case of Braylon Edwards. When QB Brady Quinn went to Dr. Andrews to check his broken finger, he should have taken Edwards with him to check the receiver's hands. Edwards, a pro bowl WR in 07, developed a serious case of the dropsies in 08. He led the league in dropped passes.

The Browns have signed the well traveled David Patten who is talented but not as dependable as he was when he was young. The Browns missed on the one ex-Jet that could have helped them the most, WR Laveranues Coles. Coles signed with the Bengals.

What Robo brings to the team is a very reliable pair of hands and the knowledge to run precise routes. Robo will become the under receiver to open up deep routes for Edwards. Robo has the ability to become the Browns equivalent of Wes Welker of the Patriots. Welker caught 111 passes last year for 1165 yards and 3 TDs with a backup QB. Robo has the ability to do the same thing for the Browns.

Robo will have to produce right out of the gate because the Browns other 2nd round pick, WR Mohamed Massaquoi (Georgia) will take a couple of years to develop. Massaquoi has early 1st round talent but is as raw as steak tartar. I doubt that he will ever develop into a receiver that can replace Edwards which was the reason he was drafted.

Robo couldn't be in a better situation. He will have a good chance to earn a starting position in his first year. The Browns couldn't have found a WR out of college that was more ready to step in. Let's hope they both profit from the relationship.

That's what I think. Tell me what you think.

  2009 Ohio State Football Pre-Preview
Posted by: Steve - 09-28-2009, 11:36 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Ohio State Saturday Game Day  

2009 Ohio State Football Pre-Preview

Summer practice is still weeks away but the realization of only having approximately three months until the season starts has gotten this reporters juices rolling. Last season was a disappointment of sorts as Ohio State lost two regular season games and dropped a thriller to their bowl opponent Texas. The Buckeyes were ranked in the top five by most of the preseason pollsters but the team just didn’t live up to its potential, especially the offense which didn’t seem to want to show up at all last year.

By Pete Quint

It’s been the modus operandi in the Tressel era to win the games you’re supposed to and lose consistently to higher ranked opponents. That’s not a jab at Tress, it’s the truth. The last time the Buckeyes beat a team ranked above them in the polls was Miami (FL) in the 2002 National Championship game. This is a disturbing trend in Buckeye football that needs to change or the team will continue to be ridiculed nationally as an above average team in a weak conference. This season, the Buckeyes will continue to load up on cupcakes in the preseason, play one legit out of conference and cruise through the Big Ten looking for another conference championship. Outside USC, Penn State and maybe Wisconsin, there’s not much competition for Ohio State in 2009.

While 12-0 is very realistic, albeit scarlet colored and optimistic, the Bucks are much more likely to go 11-1 than 9-3. Anything less than 10 wins and as least a share of the Big Ten title this season will be a big disappointment. Tressel will have his young troops ready to earn the Big Ten crown but how will the Bucks fare against USC and most likely an SEC bowl opponent? Here’s a quick look at Ohio State’s opponents for the 2009 season.

  Ohio State Recruits Complete High School at Big 33
Posted by: Steve - 09-28-2009, 11:36 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Big 33 2009

Ohio State Recruits Complete High School at Big 33

Ohio players traveled to Hershey Pennsylvania to play in the main High School all star game in the summer prior to summer classes starting in college. Chris Fields was one of the players that has committed to Ohio State that was a part of an Ohio team that defeated the best players in Pennsylvania this past Saturday 38-31.

By Steve Patterson

Ohio North South Game Not In The Picture

This was the 52nd Annual Big 33 Classic. In past years there was competition for Ohio State recruits between the Big 33 and Ohio’s North South All Star Game. But last year saw both games played on the same weekend as recruits wanted to get to campus as soon as possible after high school. Having the games conflict led Ohio State recruits to begin selecting the Big 33 routinely. The game has a strong tradition and features many of the best players from Pennsylvania against some of the best from Ohio.

Chris Fields and Melvin Fellows

Wide receiver Chris Fields was on hand but didn’t put up big numbers on the day. He did came away with a good experience against some of the best competition he has ever faced. Coming from Harvey High School and finishing his senior year at 4-6 shows the program he came from isn’t a factory of talent. Melvin Fellows was another recruit that didn’t shine in the game but he is coming off knee surgery and was seen icing the left knee afterwards. He feels the knee will not be a problem once he begins weight training with the Buckeyes this summer.

Austin Boucher

One of the stars of the game was Austin Boucher from Kettering Alter who selected Miami (OH) over a late offer from Ohio State. The quarterback finished as Ohio’s MVP and put Ohio in scoring position on a number of plays throwing and running the ball from a spread formation.

Cleveland Glenville Recruits

Other Ohio State players on hand included Jonathan Newsome from Cleveland Glenville and Marcus hall who is also a Tarblodder. Newsome showed good speed rushing the passer and was able to drop into coverage when needed. Playing the LEO position for the Buckeyes could be in his future. Hall reportedly struggled at the beginning of the Big 33 practice week but feels that he improved greatly over the course of the week leading up to the game. Ohio State would like Hall to add depth at the Offensive Tackle position behind Mike Adams and JB Shugart this coming season.
