COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A lot of numbers will be tossed around before 2-1 Ohio State hosts 2-0 Cincinnati at 6 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium. Here's a stat that won't mean much to the Bearcats, but that Urban Meyer may be aware of - Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberbille is 2-0 against him. I jokingly asked Tuberville on his regular conference call with reporters on Sunday afternoon if he had Meyer's number. "Well, I don't think you have anybody's number," Tuberville said. But while coaching at Auburn, Tuberville did something no one else in the nation did during the 2006 season. He beat Florida. The Gators' lone loss during Meyer's first national title season, which ended with a win over Ohio State, was a 27-17 defeat at Auburn in week seven. Tuberville, thinking back through his 19-year coaching career, thought that came in Meyer's first year at Florida, when it was actually his second. But he did remember the win. "We played Urban when he won the national championship," Tuberville said. "They came to Auburn and we were fortunate that we played well, they turned the ball over a few times. ... I think Chris Leak was his quarterback that year." The next win ...
Four-star Canadian DT Neville Gallimore releases his top five, Ohio State makes the cut: Buckeyes recruiting
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Where there's elite high school football talents, Urban Meyer is going to find it. Even if it's in Canada. Ohio State is firmly entrenched in the recruitment of four-star defensive tackle Neville Gallimore of St. Catharines (Ontario) Canada Prep Football Academy. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound prospect recently released his top five, and the Buckeyes made the cut along with Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State and and Oregon. Rated by 247Sports the No. 34 overall prospect and the No. 5 defensive tackle in the 2015 class, Gallimore picked up offers from more than 25 other programs before narrowing it down, including Miami (Fla.), Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, UCLA, Virginia Tech and others. Gallimore hasn't scheduled an official visit to Ohio State, but he's anticipated to make it to Columbus for a game this season. According to 247Sports' "Crystal Ball" – a tool that compiles expert projections for where a prospect will commit – 58 percent of the reporters polled picked Ohio State, while Oklahoma has 37 percent and Florida has five percent.

Five-star QB Torrance Gibson says he's not 'silently committed,' pushes back decision date: Buckeyes recruiting
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Five-star quarterback Torrance Gibson of Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage has been a rumored silent commitment to Ohio State that would reveal his decision officially on Oct. 20. Pump the breaks. Gibson says that's far from reality. In his blog done with USA Today, Gibson wrote that he isn't silently committed to anyone and he also announced that he has to push his decision date back. "I know there are a lot of rumors floating around out there about my recruitment, but you can't listen to that stuff," Gibson wrote. "You can't stop people from posting anything crazy, but, just so y'all know, I'm not committed to anyone silently or any other way. When I'm ready to commit, everyone will know. "It's all about the best fit for me and not anyone else." Gibson's academic schedule has changed and it has caused to him to alter when he takes his official visits. That, in turn, has thrown off his target date to announce his commitment. "I just found out recently that I have to take the SAT before I can take official visits so I set that up for Oct. 11," Gibson wrote. "That's gonna push everything back a little bit ...
Defensive end Josh Sweat (Chesapeake, VA/Oscar Smith) is one of those rare talents at the high school level who has his choice of colleges across the country. Unfortunately, Sweat’s football career will be put on hold after he suffered a leg injury Friday night. The severity of Sweat’s injury has yet to be determined, but he appeared to be in good spirits as he was taken off the field. Sweat is a 6-5, 236-pound defensive end ranked as the fifth best prospect in the nation, according to Rivals.com. Sweat holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas A&M, USC and many others. Virginia Tech, Florida State, Georgia and Ohio State are considered the early favorites for his services. The Hokies would love to keep the talented edge-rusher in state, but the injury will prevent Sweat from visiting Blacksburg this weekend. The defensive end also has visits scheduled with Georgia, Florida State and Oregon depending on the status of his injury.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State fans now know what Jalin Marshall looks like in the endzone. "I had a smile from ear to ear," the redshirt freshman H-back said of scoring on a 3-yard pass from J.T. Barrett in the Buckeyes' 66-0 win over Kent State on Saturday. And Urban Meyer now knows what Marshall looks like when he plays fast. "He didn't play real well early in the year, but the last game he did a nice job," Meyer said Wednesday after practice, with Ohio State in the midst of an off week. Marshall, in Meyer's mind, had been slow to adapt to his mantra of going hard for four to six seconds every play. "When he does go as hard as he can, he's really good," Meyer said. "I finally saw that last week where he put his foot in the ground." And that means everyone could see more of Marshall. Ohio State continues to rotate players at multiple spots, especially at the skill positions. At the H-back, Marshall backs up Dontre Wilson, but Meyer said Wednesday that competition is close. "We go out and make each other better every day. Whoever's in the game can make a play," Marshall said. The coaches say ...
