Kevin Wilson Has Hoosiers Believing In Themselves

Kevin Wilson

Indiana's season can only be described as a close one at this time. About 75 percent of their games have been close call situations in which they won by 10 points or less. The last game that they had against Michigan state was such a game.

The Ohio State v Indiana game had a similar fate as the rest of them. Ohio state should have credit for not backing down in fear in the midst of difficult challenges.

Ohio State beat Michigan by three points in the first game that they had with Urban Meyer as the coach. Indiana had scored a whopping 22 points when the game first started, but Ohio State still came back and regained their winning crown.

Urban Meyer Says No To LSU Coaching Position


Urban Meyer will stay at Ohio State and says he is not interested in any position available at LSU. After LSU recently fired head coach Les Miles, reports began to come out stating that the Tigers would at least try to get in touch with Urban Meyer, even if the results would not be what they expect. Meyer gave confirmation on Tuesday that he is not interested in a position at LSU. He mentioned that he did not receive any calls from LSU and plans to remain at Ohio State as head coach.

Since LSU is targeting many big names right now, it is probably a smart move by Urban Meyer to make this announcement so early. This move doesn't come as much of a surprise, even if LSU is not successful in luring some of the best coaches in college football. Two other candidates that LSU may be scouting for are Florida State's Jimbo Fisher and Houston's Tom Herman (Ohio State's former offensive coordinator).

Buckeyes Snag The Win, Credit Pure Hunger


Some might call it wishful thinking, but if you were to have suggested just a few days ago that the Buckeyes would make the long journey to Oklahoma and dismantle the third ranking team in preseason polls - most people would have deemed you a little bit crazy.

45-24, the Ohio State Buckeyes took the victory over the Sooners, validating all of the behind the scenes work that went into a win whose making had been well-hidden from the outside world.

Even after losing 16 starters from the previous year, the Buckeyes knew that they had something incredibly special in training camp.

Linebacker Chris Worley spoke on the fact that sometimes you can feel you have that special thing going in to pre-season and find that it is something completely different once camp starts. However, Worley stated that once camp did begin "there was no doubt" how much talent would be entering the field on game day.

Burrows May Miss The Entire 2016 Season


Fans thought that junior safety Cam Burrows had been cut from the game over the weekend for issues with his performance.

The truth of the matter is that Cameron had been going through pain and suffering with an injury that he previously acquired. News reporters confirmed that the injury was the real reason Burrows was out.

Urban Meyer spoke to the media on Wednesday and explained that the injury was to Burrows' foot. Unfortunately, Meyer also explained that the injury would most likely keep Burrows out for the rest of the 2016 season.

Damon Arnette Picked As Starting Nickel Back For OSU

Damon Arnette

Ohio State chose Malik Hooker and Damon Webb to be their starting safeties' this season. Gareon Conley, Denzel Ward, and Marshon Lattimore will be the starting cornerbacks for the team.

They did not choose a player to fill the nickel back position right away. Prolonging the decision allowed them to choose a player who could defend the pass consistently. They needed a true performer who could give them the advantage throughout the season, and especially when they face Bowling Green's quick-striking defense this coming week.

Urban Meyer, the OSU head coach, announced his decision today. He picked freshman Damon Arnette as the starting nickel back in the first week. This announcement came by way of his weekly call-in show.

Trevon Grimes

Tyjon Lindsey

Tyjon Lindsey and Trevon Grimes are two wide receivers who have recently signed on with the Ohio State Buckeyes. These are two of 18 new commitments to the recruiting class of 2017. These two blue chip players are two new promising additions. They were signed to the OSU team after they sent in a video of them playing dodge ball, knocking out other players who were wearing T-shirts from other schools. After Lindsey and Grimes knocked out each of the other players, they put on hats from OSU, showing the choice of school they'd made.

Lindsey is from Las Vegas, and he is scheduled to announce his plans to play for Ohio State on Monday. Grimes is from Fort Lauderdale, and was scheduled announce his decision on Wednesday. Right before his video announcement, he said on Twitter that his previous plans had changed.

Browns' Pryor Earning Rave Reviews At Wide Receiver


Terrelle Pryor ended up having the time of his life at the annual scrimmage at Ohio stadium. Saturday's event ended up being a happy homecoming for Ohio State's former quarterback.

Pryor exhibited some superior athletic abilities when he returned to the stadium where he ruled in his college years from 2008-2010. Pryor impressively caught six passes, two of which were touchdown passes from Josh McCown and Robert Griffin III.

The fans certainly thought Pryor's game play was great. At one point, he led the audience in a robust O-H-I-O cheer after he completed a magnificent 75-yard streak of touchdowns.

The game play that he exhibited during this scrimmage reminded everyone of how he used to play before the five-year ban from campus.

Pryor commented on his experience after the game by stating that it was "electric."

Quarterback Emory Jones Stays Committed to Ohio State for 2018


Emory Jones, an junior committed to Ohio State originally from Georgia, is having a great year at Heard County. Currently, this quarterback has led his team to the number one spot in the 2016 rankings. He is the number two signal-caller dual-threat in the upcoming junior 2018 class. This ranking attracted many colleges trying to pluck him from Ohio at their camp. Tennessee, Knoxville, and Clemson wanted his talent in addition to the Buckeyes. Georgia wanted to attract him back to the Peach State. Luckily, he is staying put for 2018. He made this decision recently.

Visiting these colleges in person helped him decide. Rumors state Ohio State was the odds-on favorite; the other colleges' job was to convince him their college was better than OSU. One became a threat after previous quarterbacks left their college for professional ball. Today's decision proved the colleges failed, and coach Urban Meyer couldn't be prouder. Jones is the second person to choose Ohio State for 2018; Brian Snead was the first. This gives Ohio State momentum into the New Year.

Chase Young Makes The Call at Friday Night Lights


Chase Young, the defensive end, committed during Friday Night Lights at the Ohio State University this past weekend.

The Buckeye coaching staff was so excited about Young's decision that they had an all-out celebration with the 225-pound, 6-foot-5 player right on the 50-yard line according to reports.

Young's father, Greg Young, did not think that he was going to make a decision for quite some time on the college to attend after high school. In fact, he told the news just that, an hour before Young made his decision. Young quickly announced that he was a Buckeye to all his beloved friends.

Greg gave a proud thumbs-up response during the celebration when some people asked if his son had made that commitment.

Ohio State Buckeyes Land Offensive Lineman Wyatt Davis


Many recruiting followers were surprised when Ohio State stopped their efforts for the in-state recruit, Joel Honigford, who currently held 29 offers from various other schools.

It became clear this week, however, when the Buckeyes announced that they had received a commitment from OL Wyatt Davis from St. Bosco High in Bellflower, Ca. This commitment surprised many who had not anticipated this news.

Davis, who is a 5-star recruiting prospect, listed his top recruiting school considerations 2 months ago and Ohio State was not included or mentioned by him as a school he was considering.

Last weekend, however, the situation changed quickly after Davis took a visit to Ohio State and the Buckeyes were suddenly included in his new Top-8 list.

Andre's prospects were boosted by a stellar senior year as part of the Westerville South team that won the Division 1 State championship with a 26-4 season. He was honored with being voted player of the year in the Ohio Capital Conference after a game average of 17.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

Ohio State Basketball Scoop


Non-conference Schedule

The 2016-17 non-conference schedule for Ohio State Basketball was released on Tuesday.

The Ohio State Basketball squad has the entire starting lineup returning from the 2015-16 season. Last year's disappointing performance culminated in an NIT invite. This year's team will have the opportunity to avenge 2 of their losses in non-conference suffered last season.

Ohio State's non-conference schedule has some of the same teams from last year. For the second year in a row, the Bucks face Virginia from the Big Ten/ACC challenge. They travel to play the Cavaliers on the 30Th of November. Additionally, they host Connecticut on Dec. 10Th, which is the second game of a home-and-home contest against the UConn Huskies.

Evan Turner's Jersey Hung At The Jerome Schottenstein Center


History was made on Tuesday night as Evan Turner became the fifth ex-Buckeye to have his jersey hoisted into the rafters at the Jerome Schottenstein Center. It joins John Havlicek's, John Lucas's, Gary Bradds's, and Jim Jackson's in receiving this honor. The ceremony took place as the Buckeyes played (and beat) the Michigan Wolverines, a very fitting opponent to celebrate Turner's college career. Indeed, his dramatic buzzer-beating three-pointer in the quarterfinals of the 2010 Big Ten Tournament is perhaps the defining moment of the 2010 National Player of the Year's Buckeyes career.

You might think that the ideal opponent was planned, but it was not. Turner currently plays for the NBA's Boston Celtics, meaning that he could only personally attend the ceremony during the NBA All-Star Break. The Buckeyes only had one home game during the NBA break, and it was the luck of the draw that it happened to be against Michigan.

10 Ohio State Players Drafted in the First Three Rounds of the NFL Draft


All ten players end up in places where they can make immediate impacts and getting some playing time. Joey Bosa was picked up by San Diego (Pick 3), first of the Buckeyes in the draft. He doesn’t necessarily fit the scheme the Charges play on defensive but was the best player on the board and is very versatile, can play at every position across the line. The highest drafted player out of OSU since Orlando Pace as the first pick.

Ezekiel Elliot (Pick 4) was selected by Dallas in the first round. A good pick for the Cowboys. He is already considered the top fantasy player coming out of the draft as Dallas has a great offensive line and some good receivers to take pressure off the running back. Could go for 1000 yards his rookie year.

Eli Apple went a little higher than expected, tenth overall to the Giants. Corners are a big thing for teams to pick early in the draft. In a couple of years he could very easily be the teams top defensive back. Apple’s mom quickly took to Twitter to tell all the young ladies to stop throwing themselves at her son. Good stuff.

Taylor Decker gets drafted by the Lions in a rebuilding year. A significant piece of their new offensive line. He was selected the 16th overall, that’s 4 Buckeyes already and the draft is just getting warmed up.
