Woody Hayes, Ohio State football coach, on why he does not build up opponents like other coaches:                                       "I'm regarded as somewhat of an authority. If I build up another team, they're liable to believe me."

Bball: Bucks Fail to Finish Drop Tough One In Madison
February 4, 2016

Another opportunity to get a resume building win in a tough environment and Ohio State failed to get it done once again falling to Wisconsin 79-68 in the Kohl Center.  The season is growing short but there is still time for them to land a signature win that would secure their place in the big dance.

Bball: Bucks Earn Quality Win Over Wolverines
February 16, 2016

The Buckeyes outscored the Hawkeyes 12-2 in the last four minutes to secure a 68-64 win over the conference foe.  Marc Loving led all scoring with 25 points and the victory gives OSU eleven in the conference this season.  Will this be enough to get them into the big dance?

Bball: "Just Like Football"
March 5, 2016

​That was the chant from the Michigan State students as the game was clearly in hand for the Spartans. I can't blame them but it was not much less classy than the MSU cagers were in the Schott last week when they began their regular season sweep of the Buckeyes.

Bball: Wait Till Next Year!
March 20, 2016

​The Ohio State men’s basketball team fought youth and inconsistency all season long and it caught up with them early in the second half as they dug a deep hole they couldn’t get out of in a 74-66 loss to Florida.   Perhaps with another year of experience and some fresh faces, next year will be a better story.

Stephen Collier, a red-shirt sophomore quarterback had surgery this morning to repair a torn ACL but is expected to make a full recovery.  Originally he would have been completing with freshman Joe Burrow for the back-up QB role.  More

Buckeyes and Sooners Will Play Under the Lights
June 1, 2016

College fans across the country have waited 33 years for these two powers to square off on the football field and now they will have to wait a little longer.  At least a few hours that is, as the television cycle has placed the Ohio State - Oklahoma match-up slated for prime time in 2016.  I guess a noon local kick was too much to ask for.

2016 Team Preview By Position
July 12, 2016

Probably no team in OSU history as lost as many starters as the 2016 team will need to replace after the combination of graduation and early draftees. But they say that champions reload, not rebuild and the Buckeyes will get to test that theory this season.  Brent Baver gives us an early look at the position breakdown for this squa​d.

Gibson Suspended For Fall Semester by University
August 29, 2016

First he was a highly recruited quarterback in 2015.  Then he moved to wide receiver, then he red-shirted for a year. Just when it looked like Torrance Gibson was ready to contribute in positive ways on the football field, something happened in the classroom, which is going to cost him his Freshman season.
