Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott: "No Chance Of Me Coming Back Next Year"

So Ohio State really melted down fast, huh? After coming into the day looking like a likely playoff participant, against a hobbled Michigan State team, the Buckeyes shit the bed and let the Spartans hang 10 up on them in the fourth quarter to storm back and win. After the game it got worse, as Ezekiel Elliott was… »Saturday 8:13pm11/21/15 8:13pm

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after being pulled over and reportedly blowing a 0.099 into a breathalyzer (the legal limit for underage drivers in Ohio is 0.02) on Oct. 31.

These Letters To The Editor Of The Columbus Dispatch Defending J.T. Barrett Are Hilarious

Last weekend, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was arrested in Columbus after he tried to avoid a DUI checkpoint near campus. He is underage, and reportedly blew a 0.099 into a breathalyzer, yet he was only charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Naturally, Buckeyes fans have flocked to defend him, and… »11/08/15 2:00pm11/08/15 2:00pm

Houston Chronicle Accidentally Burns Urban Meyer, Apologizes

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer took a dig at Alabama today when he disclosed the name of his team’s field goal return play. (It’s a reference to the 2013 Iron Bowl, in which the Crimson Tide found a way to fuck up a tie game with one second left in regulation, you see.) One employee at the Houston Chronicle wasn’t… »11/05/15 3:46pm11/05/15 3:46pm

J.T. Barrett Has Had It With The Jokes About His "Weenie Arm"

Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett went down with an injury last year, and in his absence Cardale Jones won a national title and was named starter for 2015, at least partially on the merits of his cannon of an arm. Well, Barrett’s back under center now, and he’s had a while to stew over perceived slights to his own throwing… »10/29/15 3:30pm10/29/15 3:30pm

Cardale Jones Didn't Know He Was Starting Until The First Series

The only meaningful bit of pregame intrigue surrounding Ohio State’s season opener against Virginia Tech was the question of who would be the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback. With Braxton Miller moving to receiver, the choice was down to J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones, and both were kept in the dark just as long as we… »9/08/15 10:35am9/08/15 10:35am

Cardale Jones Says He'll Put The Hands On Joakim Noah

During a break in last night’s playoff game between the Cavs and Bulls, Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones and other players from the national champion Buckeyes were introduced and cheered on the court. Of course, this harmless event led to Jones getting into a beef with Bulls center Joakim Noah, because if there’s… »5/07/15 11:56am5/07/15 11:56am

Urban Meyer's New Contract Has Some Massive Buyout Clauses

There doesn’t appear to be anything especially crazy in Urban Meyer’s new contract, but along with a salary bump that at least nominally makes him higher-paid than Jim Harbaugh, the coach of the defending college football champs locked in some nice buyout figures, should Ohio State decide to fire him before… »4/14/15 5:38pm4/14/15 5:38pm
