On June 10, 2013 by Chris Mulligan Continuing with the Buckeye Empire Summer series, this week we at the Empire will be brining you our faithful readers all the info that you can handle regarding the 2013 Defensive Line. This is the position that the Buckeyes will have the biggest questions at this year, because the position will be full of young guys. But before we can jump into 2013 we have to look back on the glorious year of 2012. Which some of you remember as an undefeated season and if you don’t you must have been living under a rock or under some spell cast by a Wal-Mart Wolverine. Ohio State’s defensive line was easily the strength of the defense last year in my eyes. With great play at every position on the line, everyone did their share and came up big game in and game out. The leader of the group was none other than Buckeye great, John Simon. Playing at the defensive end position Simon was the anchor of the line and will be ...

As reported by several outlets, Ohio State’s head men’s basketball coach Thad Matta snared five-star shooting guard D’Angelo Russell when he pledged his allegiance to Buckeye Nation earlier today. D’Angelo Russell.(Louisville Courier-Journal Photo) Russell received the scholarship offer from Ohio State in April of 2012 and verbally committed to the Buckeyes just days after taking an unofficial visit to the Columbus campus this past Monday. Russell, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 180 pounds, is native of Louisville, Ky., and currently attends Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla. Russell garners a five-star rating and is the No. 1 shooting guard prospect in the nation according to Scout.com. 247Sports.com also tabs Russell as a five-star recruit and the fourth-best shooting guard in the country. “It’s one thing to know that an assistant coach wants you, and then it’s another thing to know that the head coach wants you just as bad,” Russell said about Buckeyes’ coach Matta to Louisville Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones. “I built a relationship with him, and he was telling me I would come in as a playmaker, that I have the tangibles Evan ...
When you visit various national college football web sites, you’re likely to encounter comments about Ohio State’s 2013 football schedule like the one below: I’d have more respect for the Buckeyes if they scheduled top teams such as Texas A&M, Oregon, LSU, Florida State, Clemson. This type of schedule would toughen the Buckeyes, make ‘em battle hardened like an SEC team.” …or: As usual, cupcake schedule. With a schedule like that, I’m surprised Slippery Rock and Podunk aren’t there.” Ohio State will travel to Berkeley to take on California at the newly-renovated Memorial Stadium on Sept. 14. (File Photo) Yes, a lot has been made of Ohio State’s 2013 non-conference schedule and that it’s weak, full of cupcakes, and it lacks of a top-notch opponent. But part of the problem is that football schedules are generally made several years in advance. Originally, Ohio State was to open the 2013 campaign against Southeastern Conference-member Vanderbilt, a team that went 9-4 in 2012. But the Commodores opted out ...
Francis Schmidt was inducted into the college football HOF in 1971 as a coach and probably more for his overall abilities as such. He coached both football and basketball, very successfully, until he took the head football post in Columbus in 1934. Once there he changed everything about the rivalry between Ohio State and That Team Up North. Original picture of the Gold Pants introduction in 1934 Mr. Gold Pants will forever be remembered for his contribution and subsequent change in how players approached the rivalry. The ‘Gold Pants” memento is something most Buckeye players cherish and some have taken with them to the grave. Very few own four sets of them, but those that do love to use that as fuel for the fire of the greatest rivalry in all of sports. Pre-Ohio State Coach Schmidt is from Downs, Kansas and wound up playing football at Nebraska where he lettered. He joined the staff as an assistant at Tulsa, but World War I took him away for a few ...
