Even with only one year left on their respective deals, Cleveland Browns general manager believes both Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry will have “long term success” on the shores of Lake Erie.
Tied at 70, Kam Williams’ and-one three-pointer was the biggest shot of the season for Ohio State and was just what the Buckeyes needed to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
It may have been ugly at times and Ohio State took to many three-pointers, but they got the win, and that’s all that matters in March. The Buckeyes will now take on No. 4 seed Gonzaga on Saturday, a rematch from earlier in the season.
You can never have too many playmakers, right? While Duke Johnson’s role in the offense is unknown given the fact that Jarvis Landry will most likely be the full-time slot receiver, it seems as though the 24-year-old will remain in Cleveland. He and the Browns are working on an extension.
Although the Ohio State Buckeyes made the NCAA Tournament, it’s hard not to think “what if” if so many players didn’t transfer from the program during Thad Matta’s last couple years with the program. Among those transfers, four have also made the Big Dance.
With the Cavs dealing with a number of injuries, it makes us wish that it was possible to wrap each Cavs player in bubble wrap to assure they’re at full strength in mid-April.
The Buckeyes are going dancing! Ohio State earns a No. 5 seed (in West Region) in Big Dance. They will open against No. 12 seed South Dakota State on Thursday.
Want to know more about Tyrod Taylor? WFNY’s Josh Poloha sat down with Buffalo Bills diehard and #BillsMafia member Mike Waring to get to know the newest Browns quarterback.
The Buckeyes are a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, but they have fallen (again) to No. 17 in the latest AP Top 25.
Much like they did in the 2017 NIT, the NCAA will experiment with four more rule changes in this year’s NIT. There will be four changes that they will test, including moving the three-point line back (again) and changing from halves to quarters, along with two others.
A.J. McCarron? Nah. Two NFL analysts believe the Cleveland Browns will sign former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford to be their bridge quarterback.
To say that the Ohio State Buckeyes have exceeded expectations on the hardwood this season would be an understatement. Projected to finish 11th (out of 14) teams in the Big Ten by the conference’s media members prior to the season, the Buckeyes earned the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Big Ten Tournament. While the players have produced on the court, head coach Chris Holtmann’s role can’t go unnoticed. Luckily, it hasn’t.
He may be underpaid in 2018, but if Gordon produces and returns to his 2013 form or proves that he can be a legitimate wide out in the NFL, he can still earn plenty of money as his career goes on. Keep in mind, he will only be 27 years old when the 2018 season kicks off this fall.
With a perfect 2-0 final week of the regular season and get back in the win column, including an incredible double overtime win at Indiana last Friday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes jumped three spots from No. 16 to No. 13 in the latest AP Top 25. This is the first time since the 2013-14 season that the scarlet and gray have finished the regular season as a Top 25 team. Four years ago, they ended the regular season ranked No. 24 in the country.
The Ohio State Buckeyes’ success on the hardwood this season is due to their resilience, heart, teamwork, and their ability to always believe they will win no matter the situation, while also being led by a great group of coaches. While they have done very well as a team, there are three players that have led the scarlet and gray for much of the season. Forwards Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate and freshman Kaleb Wesson have been three of the team’s top players this season. With their success on the court, all three have earned all-Big Ten honors Monday night.
Having already exceeded expectations this season, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, their best seed in the conference tournament since they were the No. 2 seed in 2013, the last time the Buckeyes won the Big Ten Tournament.. They will open play Friday night at 6:30 p.m. ET against either No. 7 seed Penn State or No. 10 seed Northwestern.
One of the main reasons for the Buckeyes playing so well this year has been due to forward Keita Bates-Diop. For his efforts so far this season, the forward has been given the sixth-best odds (18-to-1) to win the Associated Press Player of the Year award at season’s end.
For the first time since November, the Ohio State Buckeyes seem to be in a rut on the basketball court. Not only did they lose two consecutive games to Penn State and Michigan, but they also lost back-to-back games for the first time since early in the season. After going 0-2 last week, the Buckeyes fell from No. 8 to No. 16 in the latest Associated Press Top 25.
In college basketball, there are plenty of moments that put life and sports in perspective. Jimmy V Week and Coaches vs. Cancer are two of the many things during the season that do just that. Sunday afternoon was another example not only to remind us that college basketball and sports are just games and entertainment, but that there are far more important things in life than sports.
Being one of the lone new guys on a World Series contender can be tough, but Yonder Alonso seems to be fitting in quite well with his new club. His personality seems to fit just right with his Indians teammates.
