What To Watch For- Buckeyes vs Bobcats

The Ohio State Buckeyes vs Ohio Bobcats Check out the latest podcast for a short scouting report on the Bobcats. Ohio State hasn’t lost to an in-state opponent since 1921. Don’t expect that streak to stop. Don’t expect to see Chris Wells running the ball either. Wells has been ruled out of this one by

Op-Ed: OK, We Admit It! We Suck! Stop Beating Us!

At the risk of losing all potential readership I have covering a Columbus hockey team, I must cop to being the “black sheep” of WFNY’s stable of writers. I’m what can be considered an “endangered species” – a University of Michigan fan living in Columbus, OH. My wife (a third-generation OSU degree holder) and I

Beanie is Out of the Boot

As everyone watched and let out The Gasp Heard ‘Round the State, panic started to set in with one very important person that almost nobody was thinking about. “Who?” you ask. None other than Beanie Wells’ mom. You think you were nervous, Buckeyes fans? Paulette Wells spent the weekend “like a person jumping out of

Beanie Wells: Injury Updates

When a player goes down like a pile of bricks, making nary an attempt at recovering his own fumble, can you blame the Buckeye faithful for simply assuming the worst as their running back is being carted off of the field? We have all heard a handful of different updates regarding the status of the

The Gasp Heard ‘Round the State

You’ve never heard 105,000 gasp at the same time? It sounds interesting… On the Buckeyes’ first drive of the second half, Heisman candidate Chris Wells was about to take a hand off at the three yard line, when he collapsed to the ground clutching his foot. The ball bounced away, and all over the state

Buckeyes vs Youngstown State

If you are looking for a great preview, the Dispatch has really stepped up the internet coverage. It is well worth the look. The only thing I’m disappointed in is the attention that Pryor is getting from OSU sites. I almost expect it from outside Columbus, but around here we should know that Pryor will

Looking For Weakness…

The Buckeyes are loaded. We know it. Michigan knows it. The media knows it. SEC fan knows it, but won’t admit it. There really isn’t much use for breaking out the traditional preview. You know about Beanie Wells. You’ve seen James Laurinaitis on First Take. You’ve heard Jim Tressel talk about phenom Terrelle Pryor. You

Countdown: Brian Hartline

“The loss of Newsome hurts Rodriguez as he attempts to import an offense that’s radically different from anything Michigan has run before. That offense can’t go without a quarterback, and Rodriguez can’t catch a break as he tries to land one.” [CFT] ‘Tis the season for Big Ten Network drama [Small Biz Journal] Chris Wells

NCAA: OSU/Illinois “Not Compromised”

Without rehashing many of the non-calls during Ohio State’s loss to Illinois last season, it appears that the ongoing investigation of referee Steve Pamon has been concluded without material evidence of “fixing.” Many groups questioned the amount of money placed on two specific games (the other was Purdue/Penn State) along with the unusual outcome given

Ohio State Football: SI Cover Jinx?

I’m typically not one to harp on the superstitions of the whole SI cover.  Madden cover, sure.  Just ask Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb.  But SI?  Not at all.  The Browns’ Jamal Lewis made the cover last year and the Browns put up one of the more memorable seasons in recent history.  But how often does

Terrelle or JaMarcus?

The picture below is of Buckeye freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor from yesterday’s practice.  Does he not look like JaMarcus Russell in that black QB jersey?  Another question is how can you not be pumped for the start of the season?  Twenty-five days… (photo credit to Terry Gilliam/AP)

Marcus Freeman Gets Some Love

Sure, we all know that James Laurinaitis is the man.  Award winner, hard hitter, and the son of a former Road Warrior.  Big Ten defensive player of the year, and a ton of those Buckeye sticker on his helmet – something that even forces my wife to realize how good he is.  But one player

Rich Rod Hates Kids, Tradition; Loves Illegal Practices

Oh Michigan, you do entertain us so… It seems that new woodchucks coach Rich Rodriguez is still not making friends in the Michigan community. This time he is hurting the youngest UM fans.
