The disappointment was brief. The dream may have been shattered, but in a matter of moments the end result was ultimately the same: an opportunity to play in the NFL. Jake Stoneburner was not drafted. It came as a surprise to many, especially after an impressive series of workouts leading up to the draft. Stoneburner displayed the skills to front office personnel that made coaches and fans so giddy when he was being recruited. Ultimately, though, he slipped through the seven-round process. But it’s a big boy business and that isn’t lost on Stoneburner. That’s why the mood was upbeat when the Green Bay Packers contacted him to become an undrafted free agent. Stoneburner will keep that undrafted status in the back of his mind for a little extra motivation. “Teams didn’t pick you for a reason,” he said. “You’ve got to figure out what that reason was and you’ve got to take that and critique it. Take it with you to Green Bay and show teams they made a mistake in not drafting you. You don’t want to act too crazy up there and act like you’re some nut job that wishes he’d have been drafted, but you definitely have to have ...

The revenge tour for Ohio State men's tennis marches on. Two days after avenging an early season loss to No. 12 Texas A&M in the round of 16, Ty Tucker's squad knocked off USC, the tournament's four-time defending champion, in a 4-3 thriller at the University of Illinois' Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex. The Trojans had knocked Ohio State out of two of their last four NCAA tournament appearances. The two teams split in singles play, but the Buckeyes won the doubles point when Devin McCarthy and Ille Van Engelen won a 9-7 tie-breaker over USC's Emilio Gomez and Roberto Quiroz. The win was a bit of an upset as the higher-ranked Gomez and Quiroz had represented Ecuador in Davis Cup play in April. The win was Ohio State's 25th in a row, but things only get tougher from here. Next up: a date with top seed UCLA (28-1) in the national semifinals at 2 p.m. Monday. Read This Article: Ohio State Knocks Off USC, Ending Four Year Reign of Troy
Redshirt Freshman P/S – Kevin Niehoff Hailing from Mason, Ohio, Kevin Niehoff walked on to Ohio State’s football program in 2012, as a punter. Despite Niehoff’s ability to punt the ball, he was moved to safety upon his arrival at The Ohio State University. Kevin failed to see the field in 2012 and was given a redshirt by the Buckeyes’ coaching staff. Niehoff will have ample opportunity to earn playing time in 2013 but whether it will be at punter, safety or special teams is still up for debate. The town of Mason is roughly 25 minutes north of Cincinnati and it does not take long to realize that the Queen city runs thick in Kevin’s blood. His father, Rob Niehoff, played college football at the University of Cincinnati and later in the NFL for the Cincinnati Bengals, as a defensive back. Despite the family ties to the Bearcats, Kevin grew up rooting for the Ohio State Buckeyes. When Niehoff received the invitation to walk on to the Buckeyes’ football team, he wasted no time committing. While at Mason High School, Kevin lettered ...
