Buckeyes Make CFB Playoff History; OSU Meets Clemson In Fiesta

Coach_Dabo_Swinney

Just moments ago, Ohio State made CFB playoff history. The announcement will go down in the permanent records as one of the most exciting happenings yet.

Perhaps the most amazing news is that Ohio managed to get into the playoffs without dominating the conference championship. That's what makes this a piece of history. OSU is the first team to pull something like this off.

Ohio State University is going to be playing against Clemson in the Fiesta bowl on the last night in December. Clemson is the number 2 seed and OSU is the number 3 seed. The square off should be quite interesting for both parties.

The number 1 seed spot goes to Alabama. Alabama will be going up against the Washington Huskies, who hold the number 4 spot.

Buckeye Attention Turns To Demario McCall

Demario McCall

Demario McCall from Ohio State is showing that he is better than everyone thought

If MSU does not upset the odds, the young back ought to be worth watching in coming weeks.

After proving his potential against Rutgers and Bowling Green earlier this season, running back McCall was sidelined when things took a turn for the worse for Ohio State over four games in October. Nonetheless, with the Buckeye's consecutive 62/3 wins over Maryland and Nebraska, McCall has again caught the eye of the Ohio State team. Curtis Samuel, the H back, is on course to have a great season, so many have earmarked him for the NFL Draft of 2017 already. If this is true, then McCall may be OSU's next game changing playmaker.

Malik Hooker Announces His Intentions

Malik Hooker

Malik Hooker 'absolutely certain' that he will return in 2017

Malik Hooker rose from obscurity to nationwide fame this year, as a record breaking safety for Number two Ohio State. He mentioned, in a Dispatch interview on Monday, that he is in no rush to depart, even if some people believe that he may enroll in the NFL draft after the season is finished.

"At the moment, it is absolutely certain that I am returning to the Buckeyes" Hooker said.

Hooker is a year three sophomore from Pennsylvania, who did not obtain starting status before this season, following an apprenticeship behind Tyvis Powell and Vonn Bell the prior two seasons. However, Hooker shot to notoriety in 2016, with six interceptions - featuring three that he sent back for touchdowns. That was a career record and a record for Ohio State's season.

Binjimen Victor Closer To A Massive Opportunity

Binjimen Victor

The passing game of the Buckeyes isn't as sharp and fluid as it should be and Coach Urban Meyer is looking for ways to change that. Binjimen Victor, a freshman wide receiver, is shaping up to be a key piece of the puzzle.

Many are saying that he has the potential to help Ohio State become a lot better in passing thanks to his 6'4" frame, fast feet, and excellent skills. He is getting lots of time in practice to improve his game.

At the Big Ten coaches conference call, Coach Meyer had great things to say about Victor. He lauded his level of talent at this young age and predicted an incredible future ahead.

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

UrbanMeyerLsu

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

OhioStateOklahoma

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

CamBurrows

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.

Terrelle_Pryor_2015

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.

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.

Quarterback Emory Jones Stays Committed to Ohio State for 2018

EmoryJones

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

ChaseYoung

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

WyattDavis

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.
