Before the victory bell began to toll at Ohio Stadium for the Buckeyes’ final home game of the 2017 season, the game was already over. In a washout before 105,282 drenched souls, ninth-ranked Ohio State (9-2, 7-1 Big Ten) followed up last week’s dominating performance over Michigan State by...

What a difference a week makes. After getting worked over by Iowa last weekend, No. 13 Ohio State came out and made a statement against No. 12 Michigan State in front of 107,011 rowdy Ohio Stadium fans and put on a show, winning soundly, 48-3. The Buckeyes (8-2, 6-1...

It’s an angry Leafcast as our own Andy Evans and his podcasting partner the Intergalactic Buckeye Fan, Mr. Chris Stefanick, recap Ohio State’s shocking blowout 55-24 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Ugly. Embarrassing. Eyeball burning. Vomit inducing. No, that’s not a jab at your prom date, that’s the description of No. 6 Ohio State’s 55-24 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday. Despite being a 16-point underdog, Iowa (6-3, 3-3 Big Ten) exploited the Buckeyes’ defense with their tight ends...

The No.6 Ohio State Buckeyes are preparing to make the journey to Iowa to face Kirk Ferentz and the Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday afternoon in Iowa City, IA. Saturday’s game will mark the first trip the Buckeyes have made to Kinnick Stadium since 2010. Ohio State look to capitalize on...

After Ohio State pulled off one of their greatest comebacks of all time by beating Penn State this past weekend, 39-38, and overcame a deficit that was the largest in the Urban Meyer era since trailing Alabama in the 2015 college football playoff semifinal, 21-6, one question has been...

The duo recap Ohio State’s insane, come-from-behind win over the Nittany Lions as Andy chows down on a heaping plate of crow regarding J.T. Barrett’s inability...

In only what could be described as insane, sixth-ranked Ohio State used a furious fourth quarter comeback to beat undefeated, second-ranked Penn State, 39-38, after being down 21-3 early in the second quarter. In front of a blacked out, frenzied 109,302 fans in Ohio Stadium on Saturday, it was...

If at least one thing was learned from Penn State’s stomping of Michigan on Saturday night it’s that they set up an epic game with Ohio State this upcoming Saturday in Ohio Stadium. The Nittany Lions shellacked the Wolverines, 42-13, in front of a record, white-out Beaver Stadium crowd...

It’s another Buckeye Leafcast from Columbus Wired’s Andy Evans and his usual partner in crime, the Intergalactic Buckeye Fan, Chris Stefanick! The two intermittently weave ramblings on OSU’s current recruiting class and Urban Meyer’s penchant for recruiting out of the state, how good it is for the Buckeyes to get...

Since the Oklahoma game, it seems like J.T. Barrett has been breaking some kind of record. Or at least being a major catalyst in helping the team break some kind of record. Coming into 2017, the fifth-year senior was already littered all over Ohio State’s record books at or...

Ohio State only scored 10 points against UNLV on Saturday afternoon. But that was in the second half. With their second and third-stringers already in the game. If you did not see the game yesterday and this is the first time you are seeing anything on the outcome, relax,...

It’s the latest Buckeye Leafcast with Columbus Wired’s Andy Evans and his Buckeye cohort, Chris Stefanick! The duo recap OSU’s solid win over Army and J.T. Barrett’s record-setting day and whether this means he should stay as the guy under center for the Buckeyes. They also break down true...

J.T. Barrett has faced a lot of flack so far this year. He is too hesitant. He does not look comfortable standing in the pocket. He overthrows too many passes. He underthrows too many passes. Dwayne Haskins is the answer, he has a much better arm. Time to put...

After No. 2 Ohio State’s sound 31-16 defeat at the hands of No. 5 Oklahoma on Saturday night in Ohio Stadium, questions began to loom about quarterback J.T. Barrett and whether or not he is still the right man for the job. Head coach Urban Meyer said he has...

Both figuratively and literally. The No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners (2-0) came into Ohio Stadium on Saturday night and gave No. 2 Ohio State (1-1) a dose of their own medicine from a year ago. And the home team jinx continued in the four-game rivalry. Too bad for the Buckeyes...

It’s the Buckeye Leafcast with Columbus Wired’s Andy Evans and his podcasting partner, Chris Stefanick! The two recap Ohio State’s big season opening win over Indiana, true freshman running back J.K. Dobbins’ performance and whether or not J.T. Barrett deserved some of the criticism after putting up over 360...

So Ohio State got the crap kicked out of them by Clemson in the national semifinal game less than a week ago. Uncle Andy is here to talk you down off the ledge and tell you why that’s actually a good thing. Okay, now that you’re done swearing my...

Mark it down. The most Big Ten MVP of the year awards still belong to Ohio State. On Thursday afternoon, the Buckeyes made it the 19th time in the 92-year history that they’ve had a player win the Silver Football Award. This is also the fourth time in the...

First-team all-Big Ten? Meh. Big Ten quarterback of the year? OK. Finalist for the Chicago Tribune’s Silver Football Award which is bestowed upon the Big Ten MVP of the year? Whatevs. The first two awards, and possibly the third, can now be placed on J.T. Barrett’s mantle. But when...

By the time the victory bell began clanging after Ohio State’s 62-3 thumping of Nebraska, it was a foregone conclusion. By the time the first half had ended the air was suffocated with a smell of sulfur after the plethora of fireworks set off after each Buckeye touchdown. When...

The last time Ohio State lost to Northwestern at home, rapper Snoop Dogg was barely old enough to even think about gin and juice and John Lennon was asking everybody to “Imagine”. Fast forward 45 years later and the Wildcats almost had 107,296 restless OSU fans in Ohio Stadium...

After last Saturday’s 24-21 loss to unranked Penn State (5-2, 3-1), Ohio State has found themselves with more questions than what they started with since the beginning of the season. Or at the very least, those questions that had seemed to get squashed after throttling then-ranked No. 14 Oklahoma...

The Ohio State athletics department announced today that quarterback J.T. Barrett has been named one of 15 finalists for the 2016 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, presented to the country’s top college quarterback. The university released the statement today which read, in part: Barrett, Ohio State’s all-time leader with...

As the old saying goes, there is a first time for everything. At this point, it’s getting kind of repetitive for this young Ohio State team. A squad that returned the least amount of starters (6) for any FBS team in the entire country. After Saturday’s 58-0 blowout win...

A simple flick of the wrist was all it took for Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett to etch his name once again into OSU’s record books. And this one is a biggie. In just two-and-a-half years behind center, the fourth-year junior from Wichita Falls (Tex.) Rider broke a 21-year-old...

After Saturday’s season opening 77-10 blowout win against Bowling Green, the Ohio State receiving corps assisted quarterback J.T. Barrett in picking apart the Falcons’ defense for a single-game career-high 349 yards passing. They also helped Barrett to tie his and former QB Kenny Guiton’s single-game passing touchdowns record with...

Records are made to be broken. And Ohio State proved that despite the amount of inexperienced guys they were replacing on this year’s team, they had the skill level to do it. When all was said and done, OSU set a single-game record for total offensive yards after putting...

Summer has barely begun but already some guys on Ohio State’s football team are getting preseason props.

Fourth-year...
