OhioStateSpringGame

Ohio State has rescheduled their annual Scarlet and Gray game due to inclement weather coming to Columbus around 11am on Saturday. The new start time of the team scrimmage is 11:45am. This is 2 hours earlier than previously schedule. Buckeye fans that are watching from home can get the Spring Game on the Big Ten Network or listen on 97.1FM.

Ohio State v Michigan Lacrosse

Fans that got to the stadium early were going to be able to watch the Ohio State vs. Michigan lacrosse game. But now that game has been moved to Friday night. Spring Game tickets can used Friday night and then re-used for the football game on Saturday.

The Scarlet and Gray game is sold out at 79,000 tickets. This is 18,000 less tickets than previous years due to construction within the stadium. Other Big Ten teams have cancelled their scrimmage for this weekend including the team up north. A lot of recruiting happening this weekend for the Buckeye staff, so it’s no time to take off.

New Role Of Coach Greg Schiano

GregSchiano

A new role is allowing Greg Schiano to expand his working from Ohio Defensive Coordinator to spend time with all other positions on that side of the ball.

Greg Schiano performed the duties of Bukeye's safeties instructor in the first two seasons as defensive coordinator for OSU. From there on Schiano got the opening to spend time with all major defensive positions.

The Football Subdivision recently grew from a team of nine assistants to ten, which brought in safeties coach Alex Grinch, which eventually led Schiano to look after the defense as the head coach.

This could very well be a game changer for Schiano & the Buckeye’s defense as they will have Schiano concentrating on the whole defensive team while having a complete understanding of the entire defensive.

Buckeyes fans will not be disappointed this upcoming football season. Featuring a star-studded lineup, the Buckeyes now have some of the top backfields in the country. From J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber, to Jaelen Gill, Master Teague III and Brian Snead, the team's deck was already stacked high for success... now it is stacked a lot higher.

Monday, Sampson James, a star running back coming out of Avon, Indiana, joined forces with Ohio State after coming down for a 2 day visit.

Standing 6-foot-1 and coming in at 211 pounds, James is considered to be the eighth best running back in the country and the number 142 prospect overall for the 2019 team expansion. Impressively, James picked the Buckeyes over a whopping 20 other offers from football programs such as Georgia, Florida State, Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan State, Michigan, Penn State, Notre Dame, Purdue and Tennessee.

Keita Bates-Diop Conference Player Of The Year

KeitaBatesDiop

Just a mere year ago Keita Bates-Diop was part of a team that only managed 11th place in the Big Ten conference. This year, not only is he a member of a second place team, Ohio State, he is also player of the year for the Big Ten. This is a prestigious title given by media and coaches.

The stats Keita Bates-Diop put forth to win the title, an average of 8.9 rebounds and 19.2 points per game. These impressive stats were accumulated just one season after a leg injury. His points average would also be one of the reasons that the Buckeyes would finish second in the season. The Ohio State team finished the season with an equally impressive record of 24-7, 15-3.

This is not Keita Bates-Diop's only title. The native from Normal, Illinois has also been Player of the Week for the Big Ten conference four times. Other impressive statistics include a 35 point, career-high game against Illinois in early February. In the game against Michigan State, ranked number one, he would rack up 32 points. As a redshirt junior Bates-Diop should have two 30 point games, giving a hint to the current seasons success.

Taver Johnson Is Returning To Ohio State

TaverJohnson

It's official, Taver Johnson returning to Ohio State is a done deal. He is coming back to the Buckeyes after his stint as cornerbacks coach in 2007 until 2011. He will be taking the place of Kerry Coombs and leaving his position at Temple. Johnson was the defensive coordinator as well as the safeties coach for the Temple Owls.

The head coach for Ohio State, Urban Meyer, is glad to see Taver Johnson returning to the Buckeyes coaching staff. The two coaches have had a long standing friendship that dates back to their time together at Notre Dame in 1999. Taver's previous record with the Buckeyes explains Meyer's enthusiasm for Taver's return. Taver, a native Ohioan, would coach the 2008 winner of the Jim Thorpe Award, Malcolm Jenkins. He would go on to be a two-time Super Bowl champ. He also coached Chimdi Chekwa, the All-American cornerback of 2010.

Ohio State Beating Purdue Lands Them at No 8 in the AP Poll

ThePantagraph

Ohio State beats Purdue in the final minutes of the game last week leading the team to be ranked number 8 in the latest NCAAM AP Poll. The number three team in the nation, Purdue, saw their 19 game winning streak come to an end against Ohio State. This was due in part to the performance of junior, Keita Bates-Diop. His tip-in, with 2.8 seconds left on the clock, gave Ohio State their one point win against Purdue.

This would be the first Big Ten loss for Purdue. It would also put an end to their record winning streak. The epic 64-63 victory pushed the Buckeyes into a first place tie. The game, at times, seemed like a shoe-in for Purdue. At one point, during the second half of the game, Purdue led by a stout 14 points However, Ohio State proved they could handle the pressure whittling down this lead and several last-minute clutch plays.

Ohio State Coach Kerry Coombs Is On The Move

KerryCoombs

It is with a sad heart that Ohio State students and alumni say goodbye to Kerry Coombs. Coombs is on his way to join the NFL Tennessee Titans as one of their assistant coaches. This is according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports.

This is a pretty heavy hit since Coombs has been present since head coach Urban Meyer took over the Buckeyes. It has to feel like fans, and Meyer himself, are cutting off a piece of themselves.

In a span of five years, Coombs has managed to have four of his cornerbacks get drafted in the first round, and he is likely to be credited with at least one other in this year's draft. Denzel Ward is projected to go early in the first, and is easily in contention for the best corner this year. Ward, like many others have and will, sent out a tweet thanking Coombs for his dedication and knowledge he imparted.

Terry McLaurin Returns to Ohio State for 2018

TerryMcLaurin

Ohio had a deal of great news on Monday when their third and final  receiver Terry McLaurin tweeted his intent to return to school for another year. This puts Ohio State's receiving core back together for another year. Certainly with J. T. Barrett's departure this year it will help the new quarterback transition with the team to have those standout wide receivers to throw to. Couple this with junior Johnny Dixon making his exciting touchdown plays and the receivers at Ohio State will give defenders nightmares.

Alex Grinch: Ohio State Adds Another Coach To The Staff

AlexGrinch

Ohio State University is pleased to announce the addition of defensive coach Alex Grinch. Most recently, Grinch has been the defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Washington State University. It had been talked about for a little while now, but much like the Raiders with Jon Gruden, they waited to make it official.

The Ohio State University Athletics Department made an announcement Monday afternoon stating that Grinch will be joining the team, but did not divulge what his exact role will be on the coaching staff.

Grinch will be coming home to roost with the Buckeyes. He grew up in Grove City, and also matriculated at Mount Union. He was a part of three National Championship teams and went 54-1 during that time. The fans will have something to be excited about watching what Grinch can do for the young men on the team.

USC To Maintain Its Tempo Offense Against The Ohio State Defense

SamDarnold

USC heads into the final game of 2017 with confidence, owing to their Pac-12 title win and a skilled quarterback in the lineup. A lot of attention has surrounded Sam Darnold due to the pending draft where he is considered a top pick. The No. 8 Trojans will be taking on No. 5 Ohio State with the same up-tempo style that they have approached each game with this season. With Darnold providing the speed to keep up this style of offense, USC managed an average of 489.5 yards a game in the Pac-12, the second most productive one.

Tee Martin, the offensive coordinator for USC, was quoted saying that they adopted the up-tempo style for the whole season and not just for a particular team. He said that the point of this offense was to stay dominant against their opponents regardless of the rotation rate. He is hoping that the same style will be effective when facing the Buckeyes tonight in the Cotton Bowl.

Ohio State will have to work hard to slow down the Trojans, especially with Darnold leading the rushing attack. The Buckeyes have gone through about eight defensive linemen, including defense ends Sam Hubbard, Jalyn Holmes, Tyquan Lewis, and Nick Bosa, the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year.
