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...

When 2nd-ranked Ohio State welcomes in 5th-ranked Oklahoma to Ohio Stadium tonight, it will be only the fourth time that the two schools have squared up. But it will be the first time that the Buckeyes have been ranked as high as they are now, the highest being last...

  Coming into his fourth year at Ohio State, Parris Campbell was being counted on this season as the Buckeyes go-to wide receiver. Despite not being the leading returner in catches, yards or touchdowns from last year, the redshirt junior is the longest tenured of any receiver to make...

The Ohio State athletics department announced on Monday that they are continuing their bag/purse policy as they did since last season and also announced that over 2,000 parking spots will be eliminated on game days due to construction. The policy remains the same as it did last year: a...

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...

There was no debating who was going to be starting under center for Ohio State in the upcoming 2017 season. That job is going to the overwhelming incumbent, fifth-year senior J.T. Barrett. What was up for debate, though, was who was going to back up the Buckeyes’ all-time passing...

Last season, Ohio State used a three-man rotation at cornerback and it worked out pretty well. This year, not only are they planning on another three-man shuffle but if assistant coordinator and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs has his way, the Buckeyes might be adding a fourth guy into the...

O – H! Can I get an I – O? With fall camp starting for the football team tomorrow, Ohio Stadium will soon be filled with rowdy fans screaming hundreds of yards away to a group strangers they barely know yet who hold the responsibility of shouting back the...

It might only be May when kids are just now winding down the school year and getting ready to cut loose for the summer, the last thing on their mind surely being having to prepare for what is coming up in the fall. But it’s never too early to...

  If Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes have their way, they will go down as being the best defensive line ever. But not just in Ohio State history. The best defensive line ever in the history of college football. That was the claim made by both defensive ends after Thursday’s...

Former Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore and former linebacker Raekwon McMillan took part in OSU’s Pro Day on Thursday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center and both said they felt they had something to prove to the NFL scouts when the draft happens in April. And the two had...

Former Ohio State safety Malik Hooker feels fortunate to be where he is at. This time last year, Hooker had only seen minimal time on the field as a redshirt freshman in 2015, mainly in mop-up duty. Fast forward one year later and the third-year sophomore from New Castle, Penn....

Former Ohio State H-back Curtis Samuel showed off his skills during OSU’s Pro Day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on Thursday afternoon. After competing in the NFL combine earlier this month, Samuel showed he still had some gas left in his tank, popping some eyes and dropping jaws...

Ohio State began spring practice on Tuesday in preparation for the 2017 season and there is no doubt that head coach Urban Meyer will be working hard towards another College Football Playoff bid. But the Buckeyes’ fearless leader has also been hard at work trying to get his scholarship...

The schedule has been set for the 2017 NFL combine and it was announced by Ohio State’s athletics department on Wednesday that eight different Buckeyes have officially received invites: wide receiver Noah Brown; cornerbacks Gareon Conley and Marshon Lattimore; safety Malik Hooker; center Pat Elflein; punter Cameron Johnston; linebacker...

It’s another Buckeye Leafcast with Andy Evans and Chris Stefanick! The two break down Ohio State’s incoming 2017 class, who’s going to play early, who the gems of the class are and why Urban only signed seven out of 21 kids from Ohio. Here is this year’s recruiting class,...

Since Ohio State’s 31-0 loss to eventual national champion Clemson in the semifinal Playstation Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Eve, rumors whipped around that Urban Meyer was looking to replace offensive coordinator Ed Warinner in favor of former Indiana University head coach Kevin Wilson. But for the past week...

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...

Since it was announced by the college football playoff committee on Dec. 4 that Ohio State (11-1) would be squaring up against Clemson (12-1) in the national semifinal Playstation Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. on New Year’s Eve, many have been saying that the third-ranked Buckeyes’ stellar defense will...

As of Saturday afternoon, it was confirmed by the University of Cincinnati’s athletics website that Ohio State defensive coordinator and linebacker coach Luke Fickell has officially accepted the job to be their next head coach. He takes over as the 42nd head coach in Cincinnati’s 129-year history after Tommy...

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...

Fourth down and inches. Botched fake punts. Broken headsets. Fourth-and-goal from the 5 yard line. Guys zig-zagging their way across the field as you hold your breath with your heart in your throat. Double overtime. And a few scuffles here and there. The 113th rendition of The Game had...

Join Andy Evans and the Intergalactic Buckeye Fan, Mr. Chris Stefanick as they preview The Game! The two break down exactly what it’s going to take for the No. 2 Buckeyes to beat That Team Up North as it’s Ohio State’s biggest test yet as they welcome in the No....

Jim Harbaugh normally has a way with words. The charismatic leader of the Michigan Wolverines has been known for spitting out such gems as, “If worms had machine guns then birds would be scared of them” and “I feel like it’s the only personality I have”. The first quote...

The two recap No. 2 Ohio State’s nailbiting win against 3-7 Michigan State. They then break down College Football Playoff scenarios and whether or not it might benefit the Buckeyes in not...

It was another 62-point explosion from the Ohio State offense on Saturday, this time coming at the expense of the Maryland Terrapins. And once again the defense did more than their fair share holding a second straight Big Ten opponent without a touchdown. Final score: OSU – 62, Maryland...

Billy Price had high words of praise for his running back. Along with making several reporters laugh during Wednesday’s post-practice interview session at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center the charismatic fourth-year junior right guard talked with the media about Mike Weber’s progression from his true freshman year last year up to what...

Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker relishes his newly found role as a starter and has fast made a name for himself on the defense. After starter Dante Booker went down with an MCL sprain in the first game against Bowling Green, the 6′ 1″, 225-pound true sophomore from Cleveland...

As the last seconds ticked off the clock of No. 6 Ohio State’s 62-3 drubbing of No. 10 Nebraska, the Buckeyes (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) had managed to keep their conference championship hopes alive while the Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-2) now need some luck if they want a trip to...

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 faced Nebraska, it was a primetime night game that featured an undefeated 12th-ranked Buckeyes team that handed a 21st-ranked Cornhuskers team a 63-38 whooping in Ohio Stadium. That was 2012 and the two teams haven’t played since. Taylor Martinez was the quarterback for that...

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...

For much of this season, Ohio State has predicated their offense on tearing up opponents on the ground. Undoubtedly, one of the keys to this weekend’s game between the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes and the No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers will be OSU’s ability to run the ball against...

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...

This time last year, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer had Chris Ash manning the booth as his defensive coordinator as Greg Schiano was sitting at home. Fast forward a year later and the script has been flipped. Ash is now the head coach at Rutgers and former Rutgers...
